    Hegemony.... People do live in a bubble in the

    States. The Middle East has so much going on now and I don't see much coverage. Saudia Arabia is engaged in a war in Yemen launching air strikes and nothing in American media, but we sure know what Kim Kardashian and her family are up to today in Yahoo. Ridiculous!

    I’m not very good at speaking,

    people who know me or talk to me would disagree, I think. Most times, when I speak, it feels as if I am just letting words fall from my brain out my mouth. Very rarely do I speak about things that I actually feel invested in one way or another and it has occurred to me in a...

    There is a very good chance

    that I'm dyslexic, which is why I had such a hard time in school. My brain isn't wired to understand numbers or anything mathematical. BUT, often times, people with dyslexia have very high IQ's. It's also very likely that I am one of those people. I'm happy about the high IQ...

    I am have a strong opinion

    and I start question with that in mind. I want to learn and I want to understand. Just in the last 15 minutes I've learned that I need to phrase my questions better, and that I'm wrong...a lot. What a humbling experience.

    So there's this guy in my martial arts club (we

    do 3 styles throughout the year) and from the day I "met" him I was frightened of him. Was I very judgmental? Absolutely. Maybe I wasn't judgemental to a mean extreme, but he's very tall, and has this really serious and set face, and I guess that just made me slightly nervous or...

    It happened when I had a private class with a

    pre-school student. He is just 5 yo. Now, I do stupid and senseless actions/ reactions sometimes and boy... how I did it bad today. So I managed to get him to do his simple substraction work independently. This is my first time having him do his work all by himself. I usually...

    I thought I had failed at something important.

    I set three goals, and failed them all. But these three goals were for a higher purpose. Like steps to putting something together. But this not a tangible thing, it is for my personal sake. Well I failed all three of my goals but I achieved the main thing I was trying to do...
