  • Those who are neurotic

    Posted on October 31, 2012 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about neuroticism. I will be the first to admit it: I’m extremely neurotic. But you know what? That works for me. And it can work for you, too. Those who suffer from neurosis, me included, seem to get things done efficiently and quickly. And who wouldn’t want someone like that around? […]

  • The Most Elaborate of all Learning Processes

    Posted on October 28, 2012 by in Uncategorized

    I wrote this in October 2012 for an English class at LMU. This essay is about learning how to drive a manual car… and how my father taught me. The Most Elaborate of all Learning Processes             There are those things that come easy; there are those things that take months, even years, to master; […]

    How to be a friend

    Posted on October 28, 2012 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about friends. A friend is someone who knows all about you and likes you anyway. Plain and simple. But why does this spectacular and utterly true quote somehow not seem to fit into reality? We should whole-heartedly love those to whom we are close. We should be there for them in […]

    Not children

    Posted on October 25, 2012 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about those who treat adults like children. I must rant. Why does this happen? Why are college students being treated like children? Of course, I cannot name specifics, but it has recently come to my attention that college students are being treated like children. We do not need to be monitored […]

    Hackers

    Posted on October 22, 2012 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about hackers. This is something I feel strongly about, for I believe it is a violation that can make us question the intentions of strangers. And that, of course, is a shame; it’s a fact that shouldn’t have to be. Recently, my email was hacked. Needless to say, I was not […]

    Balance

    Posted on October 18, 2012 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about balance. This kind of balance can be related to everything from eating right to finishing multiple class assignments in a timely manner. Balance, apparently, isn’t always easy for everybody. As a Libra, supposedly I’m good at juggling many things at once. Most days I do find that to be true. […]

    Seven short months

    Posted on October 15, 2012 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about the future. This is a touchy subject. But it must be examined and dealt with eventually. I’m a college senior about to go off into the real world. And you know what? That scares me to death. I’ve enjoyed the comfort and learning process of college. I love taking classes […]

    This is my opinion

    Posted on October 10, 2012 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about opinions. Differing opinions can cause tension. We fight with those we love because of these differences. And sometimes, we have to state our opinions. But when should we hold back? Should we speak everything that is on our mind? Or should we bite our tongues? If we do bite our […]

    Great Expectations

    Posted on October 7, 2012 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about expectations. Some of us have these great expectations not only for ourselves, but for others. And I would argue that expectations are good, but can also be defeating. I stumbled across this quote recently that sums it up: “Sometimes we expect more from others because we would be willing to […]

    Manuals

    Posted on October 5, 2012 by in Uncategorized

    I got to thinking about manual cars. Do you know how to drive one? Most people don’t. I always find those who can to be impressive. We got to talking in one of my classes about things we can do that not everyone else can; this is one of mine. I learned how to drive […]
