voy a cambiar vidas.
i write a lot. i have this little notebook that i carry with me everywhere.
porque este mundo es increíble.
i love tumblrs. because people these days are so quick to judge and if you happen upon this site, you get a whole different perspective of someone you thought you knew.
because sometimes we don't speak aloud all we want to say. and written words preserve the moment's intensity.
when i write, i think i look for/ hope someone will disagree with me. because they care enough to engage and sometimes i don't want to believe what i have come to conclude.
i'm self absorbed, passionate, vocal though sometimes internally, stubborn, will argue with you if you don't agree with what i think, interested in multiculturalism race relations psychology cross cultural, still figuring it out
Anonymous asked: About your post regarding not minding and not moving... I think you are doing so. Part of the saying implies that by choosing to move, you're not minding. So, in a way, it is intrinsic that you don't notice the movements you've been making. No mind, just move. Keep moving.
hm, for me it personally means that i think about things so much that i don’t always act/ move forward (not all the time but enough that i can think of) so i really need to shut out those thoughts and just move. but this also makes sense and they go together. *also this made me realize that sometimes minding is good because you don’t always want to move without realizing what you’re doing/have done. hm

thank you :) that’s very nice of you
Is it worth trying to change campus culture when it’s four years of your life and immense effort for such a small scale (relatively)?
I have not been following that this year as much I should have. I’m about to change my tumblr url.
I have so many thoughts and on paper they’re so loud and what I’ve learned from these past two years in writing classes is that I actually have something valuable to say I just havent always used my voice. I love that I write because sometimes I’m the one that has to catch myself to keep from stagnating.
*also having to defend your school everytime someone’s like “so there’s a lot of lesbians right” or even having to shrug off another person whose like “so…. your school is for liberal arts..??” makes you stronger. Then there’s dealing with some people there in general.
So I always wondered what is so special about an all women’s college. For majority of my first year (also now) I did not feel the empowerment they (random they- college brochures, alum) say about wellesley being known for graduating the top women leaders of today. How is a place supposed to empower you? By default? Just simply by being an all women’s college? (Actually the word simply shouldn’t be there. It’s not that simple to remain single sex today). But I realized yes, a part of it is empowerment by default. Because we’re so used to seeing women leading everything at this school. They’re the norm of everyone around me, the ones in my courses making the best presentations, the women winning the fellowships and prestigious awards. It kind of conditions you in a weird/ useful way to be so used to women leading that when they’re not, you’re suddenly all conscious of it. I was watching Chinese news with my grandpa today and the president’s cabinet was comprised of all men in black suits and I didn’t even realize what I said until I said it but I said “where are all the women?” And that’s when it hit me that Hm, this all women thing is making me aware of things I previously would never have asked/noticed.
Finally home :)
Note to self: do not pack so much stuff next time. The trunk almost didn’t fit everything. Just cause its $2 and a steal doesn’t mean you should get it.
He said the problem with colleges like yours and mine are that the students are incredibly liberal but the administrations are conservative.
