how do macs cool themselves?
even though this week has been filled with a lot of goodbyes, I’m loving every minute of this graduation wave of leaving all the fucks at the door. I wish I had all these late night hootenany/shenanigans all year long.

[[MORE]] I haven’t blogged in a while and feel a bit rusty in my blogging vernacular, but theres just so much I want to capture and feel a bit insecure with finding the right words to express it fully. while I wish I were a better artist with words, there is only so much that words can convey. anywho, here I am. 5:30 am. Saturday. the last 16 hours or so have been a complete blur. ...
I forgot how to cram in 14 weeks of information into my brain.
me: I wish there was universal sign language
Emily: You would need a universal language
me: Oh, dang that's right. I wish there was a universal language.
Emily: there is a universal language, that's love.

Sunshine is a wonderful, super dedicated adviser and goes above and beyond in everything she does. She not only really cares about what is going on in our personal lives to help us better balance and live out social justice so we don’t get burnt out, but also has some excellent advice around almost ever issue we have encountered in the Alternative Breaks space. She is someone I will...

[[MORE]] I’m truly grateful to the friend who lately I only see when we both venture into the dark undergrounds of mainstack as I dream about throwing around frisbees on the glade and basking in the night skies. Our random side conversations will always be remembered. I almost got hit by a car today, well love tap really, its was just a silly man not looking and me making a dramatic jump,...
15 Assumptions that shouldn't lead to conflict.......
1. Assume that you are loved. 2. Assume that those who love you find some kind of value in you and the things you do. 3. Assume, however, that you don’t need to be valuable in order to be worthy of love. 4. Assume that there is no one out there keeping a tally of all of your failings, ready to throw it in your face when you’re either feeling too good or too awful about yourself. 5....
UC Berkeley Summer Reading List →
UCB Summer Reading List index, with links to current and past UCB Summer Reading Lists. definitely looking forward to reading in a couple of weeks. although the reading I do now is actually really interesting and I dig. But I miss my novels and connecting to characters on such weird intimate levels.

I’m so thankful that I go to this crazy school where prolific writers like Allende come to our campus and I have the opportunity to see her speak about her writing, life, prophetic dreams, the magic of life, humor, depression, drug addiction, nature, etc. So cool when you get to see an artist describe their work and their process.
why do papers take such intensed focus?
I’m like a little puppy when it comes to writing, I write like a sentence, not even a sentence and then I’ll do something else and check tumblr and facebook and end up finding myself at a point where it’s like why am I scrolling through this rando’s photos. like the person usually is a friend of a friend of a friend just because I get all curious about their comments. or...

Anonymous asked: i love your blog chika. you're thoughtful and cool and i just wish everyone could see the world the way you seem to :/ it sucks how people can be so narrow-minded at times, even in places as "liberal" as berkeley. good luck with the rest of school ^.^
hah. I know I blog a lot about my mom but she really is just this spectacular being that I love. anywho- why do people always throw around numbers that are rooted in anything. like my mom said to me the other night- Chika, 80% of people don’t view love like that, so you can’t expect them to. nothing you can do about it. hahah, where did she get the 80%… I have no idea. She had...
as much as I respect unions for creating the 8 hour work day, I often wish the norm was middle of afternoon siesta. I’m really going to miss my room next year. naps with the sun kissing the window, it’s like this endless source of happiness shining through. that and hikes and walks around hills. If I can get my procrastination in check, I’m going to start some runs too. and...
