I Want to be a Pokémon Master… Kidding.

I had to make a creative title. Master. So many things can come to mind with the word.

Master in a skill.
Master……urbating.
Master’s degree.

Despite being down for the longest time about not being in law school (which I guess is a blessing considering that I don’t have to spend a shit ton of money on that degree for now), I’m now doing a masters in criminal social justice.

Because law shaped me already, so I can’t give this up. But the best part: I’m finally 22, so that’s the usual age that people graduate undergrad and go do a masters, so I’m finally going to be in class with people my own age!

I thought that back in April… yeah, I’m already on my second class and no one is close to my age at all! Infact, they are older and have job experience!!! At a disadvantage yet again…

Oh well, I’ll be like I used to be and just work hard and prove them all wrong.

Back Once Again…

Where has the time flown? I remember like it was yesterday that I was just writing how excited I was to be turning 21 on here! So much has happened in the past year. I was in law school then my mom fell ill, my dog passed away, and I came back and gave up law school to get a retail job despite having a bachelors degree in sitting on my ass and drinking wine (aka philosophy… of law so that means, arguing is acceptable)… But here I am, trying to get out of the depressive state of throwing law school away with so many preoccupations with everyone back home, to come back.

But it’s for a good reason, right?

Chicago, Illinois – The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has officially confirmed what many people thought all along: taking ‘selfies’ is a mental disorder.

The APA made this classification during its annual board of directors meeting in Chicago. The disorder is called selfitis, and is defined as the obsessive compulsive desire to take photos of one’s self  and post them on social media as a way to make up for the lack of self-esteem and to fill a gap in intimacy.

APA said there are three levels of the disorder:

  • Borderline selfitis : taking photos of one’s self at least three times a day but not posting them on social media
  • Acute selfitis: taking photos of one’s self at least three times a day and posting each of the photos on social media
  • Chronic selfitis: Uncontrollable urge to take photos of one’s self  round the clock and posting…

Rock bottom

I didn’t do well in law school.

And I moved back home.

My mom needs dialysis soon…

And later today, I may possibly have to put my best friend of 14 years down… My little chihuahua.

While trying to be strong for her on our way to the vet and all of today.

Not only that but I can’t find a job, and school isn’t starting soon.

I feel at such a low point with all of this, plus trying to be strong with my own health declining.

I just want things to freeze in time. Or that I wake up from this nightmare of not doing well or that my mom isn’t dieing and that my dog is really healthy and that my organs are perfectly fine.

But this is life, isn’t it?

Obama Proposes 2 Years of Free Community College

Originally posted on TIME:

President Barack Obama announced a proposal Thursday to provide two years of free community-college tuition to American students who maintain good grades.

“Put simply, what I’d like to do is to see the first two years of community college free for everyone who’s willing to work for it,” Obama said in a video filmed Wednesday aboard Air Force One and posted to Facebook. He made the announcement as part of his pre–State of the Union tour and will formally lay out the proposal Friday in a speech in Tennessee.

The White House estimated it would save the average community-college student $3,800 annually and said it could benefit 9 million if fully realized.

White House domestic-policy director Cecilia Muñoz said the proposal is a federal-state partnership, with federal funding covering 75% of the tuitions and participating states will be expected to pick up the rest of the tab. Muñoz said legislation…
