i don't doubt you love vaginas

Haha yea. It was real dope b/c many people were like "me too!". It was cool because there were some females who said so in spirit of empowerment.

Empowered because they are lesbians, or because the shirt was sold at the Vagina Monologue performance, which brings to light the lack of women's rights around the world.

Vaginas are sewn up, mutilated, and those with vaginas have less rights, no power, EVEN THOUGH everyone comes through a vagina ONCE in their life time. Seems like the world hates vaginas, and wants women to hate their vaginas too!!

That thing about hairy vaginas, and how you don't care as long as it's empowered.. I think that's one of the most unique answers I've ever read. And maybe the last

"maybe the last"? what's that supposed to mean? I have no more unique answers? haha

Anyhow, yes. Those who saw my "I <3 Vaginas" shirt yesterday know wassup, haha

Ask me anything

Anyone broken your heart lately?

Yea, actually. There was this girl in Fall quarter that I really liked. And she liked me too.

But then you know, things don't work out your way, and you just gotta move on =).

I wouldn't say it's "lately", but it's the latest heartbreak, haha.

Ask me anything

Arizona new Racial Profiling law

For those who would like to get a coherent argument of why Arizona's SB1070 was idiotic, morally wrong, constitutionally incorrect, and just simply ineffective, check it out.

The links provided by the video are also very interesting. =)

Emotional Intelligence with Daniel Goleman

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hoo_dIOP8k&feature=related

Apparently, "wisdom of feelings" are really as true as it sound. The back of the brain stores information, on what works, what didnt works. It is so primal though, that it has little or zero connection to the verbal cortex.

Therefore, we CANNOT really explain wisdom, only through feelings.
And, the feelings are what help us prioritize, and make decision.

SO, when coach
Joe Te told us to "prioritize", what he really means is, be in control of your emotions...

Effective leaders laugh 3 times more than mediocre leaders. Because the brain can notice the environment, and the feelings radiate.
Rapport is so important, having good chemistry actually makes people move together. We can see this when we feel calm around people we really love.

To get there, 1st people need to be paying full attention, attuned 2nd non-verbal communications are like a dance, 3rd feel good.
Being calm, for awhile, can even bring down the most abrasive of others.

3 things in a really strong relationship (when you're in love): 1. attachment, missing them when they're not there 2. Caring for them, care taking 3.Sex
Caring is the most important...

Meditating strengthens the Pre-Frontal Cortex, and helps you be a better leader, etc...

My lesson, the Political Implication?: In order to help someone, you must first learn how to empathize with them. (Of course, unless you're self-serving and have a lot of other motives)

Three Questions to ask yourself

"If I am not for myself, who will be for me? When I am only for myself, what am 'I'? And if not now, when?" Hillel the Elder
