I have had my fair share of roommates. The leases ended because of various reasons: one was a psycho bitch who always like her juice ‘real’ and stabbed people with darts. she was the needy girlfriend in our relationship who always got mad at me when I was ‘never’ home. two of them were complete bros. Thing 1 would always sleep on the toilet when he was drunk and...

“My mom brought up McGill over eggs benny and veggie skillet. I don’t know if I will go this year, or next, or if at all. As much as it is a wonderful opportunity, my heart isn’t in it. However, my mom reminded me of the potential I have always had to be great even when I never realized it. What kind of fifth grader writes to their mayor about the detrimental implications of...

“We do not always do what upon reflection we would do or even what upon reflection we have already decided to do. Reflection does not have irresistible power over us. But when we do reflect we cannot but think that we ought to do what on reflection we conclude we have reason to do. And when we don’t do that we punish ourselves, by guilt and regret and repentance and remorse. We might...
Who said this was going to be easy?
Having one option makes for easy decision making. Having a plethora of options overwhelming your view make for a peace of mind but can bring quite a headache. I am very lucky with the opportunities that university has given me. A bachelor’s degree in one of the best psychology undergraduate programs in the country; becoming president of a growing student’s society, and deemed a valued...
Cleaning out the email account(s)
I asked my closest friends and family members to give me a “top 10 traits, both good and bad” so I could use this to write my autobiography (assigned in Psych 330). I found what my dad had wrote. NB. My dad’s first language is spanish; his grammar is sort of hindered by this. It’s the thought that counts, though. Also, this is the view of how my father sees me which may...
I have had three red bulls in the past couple of days; I got excited when I saw salad, as if it was the first time I had ever seen edible greens (and believe me, from my separation of the leafy vegetable, you could believe that I haven’t seen it in quite some time). My eyes are red and body has become week. Two thousand more words. Two thousand more perfect words but all my body wants to...
Where's my motivation?
In one month and 10 days, I am going to look back at the month and feel so relieved. I am working for that very day. Right now I feel like I barely have any fight left but I must be going. It’s hard not grabbing a coffee with my best friends, cuddling up with Ty, or hanging out with Coops. I miss my friends and I miss my life. BUT this is the last month of my academic career (well, undergrad...

Aristotle, my main man.
“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.” Happiness depends upon ourselves. What is the essence of life? To serve others and to do good. We are what we repeatedly do. Count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is victory over self. “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.” It is the mark of an...
