Day 2 of San Diego

23 Jul

Here is my outfit of the day: 

A simple navy maxi dress. I’ve really been loving Maxi dresses lately.

This morning, I went to the gym (since the gym is 24 hours) and it was awesome because I had the whole fitness center to myself. :D 

Anyway, this morning I also walked on the boardwalk and everything was so gorgeous. Weather in San Deigo is so perfect!! It is cooler than the east coast by far, something I didn’t expect.

I love the palm trees. It reminds me of Trinidad. :)

We also saw homes today! Even though they were a bit small (OK, maybe not small, I guess average? Four bedrooms) they were so gorgeous. I loved the interior design and the backyard/garden/patio were absolutely lovely!

I would love for that to be my backyard!! Haha 

So, that was just a little tidbit into my day, Tomorrow, I’m excited because we have more fun things planned (that are unique to San Diego). Super excited!!

Squeezing In Some Japanese Study on the Plane?

21 Jul

Sometimes I forget why I created this blog…

…And then think about how there is no organization in this blog.

But that is OK. I like to have the space where I can just post miscellaneous things!

Which reminds me,

Some Japanese study materials

Some Japanese study materials

On the plane is a perfect time to study Japanese! Just because I won’t be having Japanese lessons this week does not mean I need to stop studying Japanese! :)

And who knows, maybe, just maybe it might calm down my anxiousness a bit. Haha!

I normally don’t share all my travels, but I think I may post a few photos this time.

P.S. A new post on A New Shade of Feminine is up! :D

I did it again…

19 Jul

I really got to stop posting sporadically.

But it is better to be busy with real life than internet life.

I have so many things that I want to share, but in all due time…

Until then I will share two amazing news!!!

First,

Remember that idea that I had? Well, thanks for all the encouraging comments because the I took it into action. The site is up!

Warning:

It is not that impressive yet. When I first had this idea, I had a certain style and way of how I was going to organize this new website, but things took a turn and I decided to keep it very simple. Extremely simple.

Of course not all topics will be simple, but I’m going to try my best and convey my message with the necessary (albeit little) amount of words needed.

Second,

I am going to San Diego next week!! I’ve never been to California. I live in the east coast and I’ve only been south and north…never west! I think it is strange how I have never been to California, but have been out of the country so many times.

I’ll be posting pictures on this blog! :)

P.S. I’ve noticed to this date that my most popular blog post is “Feminine Dress” so, I decided while on vacation I could share with you all my own feminine style. Maybe something as simple as…Outfit of the Day? Hmmm What do you all think?

Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less

I have been getting into disagreements with the woman I am mentoring in apologetics, where she has been telling me that accurate assessments of my strengths are “proud” and that I need to be more humble. So I thought I would explain what I take humility to mean.

Here’s something from J. I. Packer:

“Being humble is not a matter of pretending to be worthless, but is a form of realism, not only regarding the real badness of one’s sins and stupidities and the real depth of one’s dependence on God’s grace, but also regarding the real range of one’s abilities.Humble believers know what they can and cannot do. They note both their gifts and their limitations, and so are able to avoid both the unfaithfulness of letting their God-given powers lie fallow and the foolhardiness of biting off more than they can chew.”

The Issue of Men Hitting Women

13 May

First, I want to clear this out of the way

Under no circumstances do I condone a man hitting a woman, unless life threatening. 

But

Under no circumstances should a woman not use common sense. 

I was reluctant to write this, but with this year having all the controversies like Ray Rice and his fiance and Jay Z and Beyonce’s sister, I thought I should write this post. 

1.) A woman should use common sense

This is for the women: Just because you believe a man shouldn’t hit a woman, doesn’t mean that every man believes that. If you hit a man, and he hits you back–well, you asked for it! 

Feminism will lie to you say that there are no differences between men and women, but here is a reality check–>there are! 

On average, men are stronger than women and even the strongest woman cannot compare to the strongest man. 

Take that for what it is and use wise judgement when you start an altercation with someone. 

2.) Don’t act like a child

Both parties should always keep their hands to themselves and the “I didn’t know better” excuse doesn’t work. 

3.) It’s Disrespectful 

Men, don’t hit women…You are strong, it hurts, it does emotional and physical damage. 

Women, don’t hit men, it is extremely disrespectful, especially if he is your husband or close relative. 

Violence should only be used for extreme cases of self defense. 

4.) It is not as one-sided

While there are abusive cases, and I am not dismissing those; more often than not, especially if the man had no abusive patterns or behaviors in the past, there is normally something that drove him to that point.

It is not normal for a woman to be just sitting there and having her husband beat her to a pulpit. There was something that that lead him to that.  

It doesn’t justify it, but it does clear up the automatic women=helpless, innocent, didn’t do a thing, victim scenario. 

5.) Men can be abused with physical violence too

Except they have no legal backing like women do. Men are just expected to stand there and take it. How would you like that?

Think before you hit a man. 

P.S. My next post will be a lot more lighter and I’ll provide a link to the new blog I am working on, but it will probably not appear until the next week or so, since this is my last week of school and I have finals. The following post after that will be an update on my Japanese Language improvement. 

Toodles! 

 

 

 

 

The downside of the soul mate / fairy tale view of relationships

Do relationships take work (e.g. – killing orcs together) to build?

Astonishing article from the leftist Huffington Post, of all places. (links removed)

Excerpt:

As millennial women, we were groomed for a white knight fantasy. From childhood favorites such as Snow White to adult rom-com staples such as How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days or Sleepless in Seattle, the media perpetuates a romantic storyline in which compatibility and lasting romance is something effortless, built on chance, sustained by good looks, fun dates and electric sexual chemistry. These story lines shape our expectations for romantic happiness. It is not enough to find someone with whom we are mostly compatible, who would make a good parent, with whom we could learn and grow wrinkly; now, we expect a perfect fit and an easy, instantaneous “connection.” In short, we want a soul mate. But it is this desire for…
