The thoughts, writing, and life of a woman, a girlfriend and her boyfriend, a (secret) yogini, and a M.A.

I live out the life of Me.

"It's all connected." - Dr. Baker

"Be kind. For everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." - Plato

"Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it." - Mahatma Gandhi

"Tomorrow is never promised so live for today. Put your ego aside, open your eyes to who and what’s around you. You are loved. You are cared for. You are blessed, always remember that." - Junethea Crystal Centeno

“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten.”

I also love stories. Some make you laugh so hard you can’t breathe. Others are so outrageous you wonder if they could ever possibly be true. And every now and then you come across one so powerful it completely changes your life.


We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors – not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.

COLLEGE FIRST.

I love how the Addams Family has ZERO slut-shaming. Like… honey you can dance naked and enslave someone with your womanly charms if you want to, I don’t fucking care, but so help me you’re going to get a college education first.

A+ PARENTING

The Addamses are what every family should aspire to be like (you know; without the dismemberment and electric chairs as play time).  Honestly, have you ever seen more unconditionally loving and supportive parents than Gomez and Morticia?  And not just with the kids, but with each other.  I think what’s especially unique about them is how open they are with everything.  They don’t treat their children like children.  They treat them like they treat everyone else; direct, and to the point. 

It’s creepy how many good examples of parenting and romantic relationships there is in these characters, especially considering they are supposed to be the antithesis of the stereotypical American nuclear family.
