The path to the divine is not defined. Through out human history we have developed many different traditions to connect with our divine. with our belief that there is more than just humanities mere existence on this earth than lust, anger and violence. That we have a moral and correct action among our peers. basically I am always searching for some thing to put our belief in. Thankfully I have had...

I hate HATE HATE it when im with a group of guys and one or a few (there are usually the token guys in the group) can’t stop talking about how the group needs to hang out with women. They are defining their fun by which people are around them, specifically women. What the fact that there is a female in the room is going to make your life exponentially better?? honestly. We were watching the...

When students wonder how I know what they've done
Love as long as you live..
leopardprintbow: all i want is a little love. i have so much to give, yet when i place my heart on a platter of gold and present it to someone they throw it away as if it were rancid and repulsive. if only they knew how much strength and courage it took for me to do so. if only they knew how much the one before them hurt me. i will never stop loving, one day someone will see it, one day.

Its not what you do, its how/why you do
I was laying in bed last night reflecting on the last year and my future. Earlier in the day i had a twitter convo with some other SApros about dressing nice and whether it effects our credibility with students. some how i tied both of these things together and realized that my life in general cant just be about WHAT im doing, it has to be HOW and WHY im doing it. that means finding the best way...

The Revolving Door (in the SA Life)
Much like many of my colleagues i beginning to realize that my profession is one in which people are consistently changing jobs, departments are consistently in transition and people are always looking for the next big opportunity. While this may worry me in terms of my career path, i’m okay with it because i have control over those decisions. What worries me more is the departure of...

racism, discrimination, and being color blind
I recently got into a heated only argument with someone who was intentionally being inflammatory and provocative. Some back story: UCSB elected a women of color to its AS President position and this person commented on the photo of her captioned ‘a fierce women of color as AS president’. He commented to the such of ‘a mexican big haired women of color as president will be...

tumblrbot asked: WHAT IS YOUR EARLIEST HUMAN MEMORY?
living in a city
So my journeys so far have taken me to lots of places. One thing i have yet to do as a some what grown person is live in a city. Now i am, i stepped out of the Chicago midway airport and swear for the first 30 sec i though i was in Cairo, Egypt. The smell of cigarettes and car exhaust mixed with the sound of buzzing traffic. The first person i met was even an Arab, trying to get me to take a flat...

buckinhere: It freaks me out that I have chosen a profession that has me switching schools/jobs every 3-5 years. In a year I will be job searching, and then in 2-5 years after that I will be job searching again. And then again. How do I find stability? Did I set myself up for a life of constant change? Will a…
