"Your soulmate is not someone that comes into your life peacefully. It is who comes to make you question things, who changes your reality, somebody that marks a before and after in your life. It is not the human being everyone has idealized, but an ordinary person, who manages to revolutionize your world in a second…"

Do you ever have random people comment on your looks or body? People loooove telling me I should groom my eyebrows. But honestly, the more people tell me I should do something with my eyebrows, the more I am inclined not to. Sorry, but I communicate with Frida Kahlo through my eyebrows. If I pluck them I might lose the signal.

I have a new phone. This is my official reaction to all pictures I’ve taken. The camera has semi quality even when there’s no flash because the phone’s dying. This is freaking me out. TECHNOLOGY WHOA

"We heard several bills last week about women’s issues and I kept thinking to myself, these bills are putting us backwards in time. We are losing the respect that we so dearly want in the workplace by bringing up all these special bills for women and almost making us look like whiners."

Republican Minnesota State Rep. Andrea Kieffer whining about representing 50% of the population.

Equality and sick pay are whining? How out of touch and selfish can you be? Kieffer is enjoying her equal pay as a Rep, but others can screw themselves.

The Republican mantra is “I got mine, screw you!” They give no thought toward their fellow humans.

"I was supposed to be a Mexican, then came Manifest Destiny and I became Mexican American, then came the Census Bureau and I became Hispanic, then came that white woman and I became a spic, then came that one Ethnic Studies class and I became Chicano, then came Cherríe Moraga and I became Xicano. In the end, it’s just me and my unsolicited opinion."
