Say It. I Dare You.

So, in my English class today, we did a peer editing workshop on our essays. They usually aren't that helpful, but I was really looking forward to some feedback because my paper is kind of a hot mess.

Yeah, guess who I got paired with?

The ONLY ESL student in the class. *headdesk*

So, basically, I couldn't understand about 95% of her paper, and she had absolutely no feedback for mine.

I don't know why I'm even surprised anymore, when stuff like this happens to me!

I spent two hours with a peer helper and barely got down a sentence. But at least I have a general view of what to do.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

Everything is going up in price and not my paycheck. Not cool. What in the )(*^ is up with the economy?!? I'm sick and tired of it being total )*(* all the time!

I need my Lexapro like yesterday. I should add my generic Lexapro sent from somewhere in the Bahamas because I cannot afford to buy it legally in the U.S. any more.

Oh yeah and I can't help but feel jealous toward people that have more money and things than I do, and people that seem to have it together all the time. I don't care how hard they work for it or how long they went to school... I wish something would happen to them so they'll experience a taste of what I go through struggling to pay for basics instead of struggling to decide where to go on vacation. I'm sure they don't have perfect lives but money makes a big difference. I want them to struggle.

How can one hate pineapple? It's one of the most wonderful fruits ever. Sweet yet tart, juicy, great grilled or roasted. Mmm, pineapple.

Technically you wouldn't have needed the baking powder if that recipe didn't have some weird pound cake type of cake instead of a sponge like it should for tres leches.

Do you have a tres leches recipe you'd like to share. Pretty please
Turtles: omg please don't put that in your moo moo

That or RBD. I try to hide the few songs on theirs I have.

I'm not sure that my professor has time to do it, since the final drafts are due Thursday! I think I might enlist the help of my mom...

Good luck on your paper!

Heh, but what about it is gross? I can't help thinking you had bad pineapple.
Plus the pineapple filling used for cakes isn't as delicious as a homemade jam.

Tres leches:

It's actually quatro leches using homemade dulce de leche/cajeta

As someone who would probably pick a red velvet cupcake over tres leches, this makes tres leches somewhat more tolerable (except for the meringue, ick too sweet, whipped cream only please):

Agreed. Exactly.

If the world had known ever single person who died from an overdose, they would mourn that person. But we do not, and we can only feel a personal feeling if something has personally affected us.

Its a ridiculous comparison. I absolutely HATE when people make that kind of comment. "oh, there are thousands of people who die from that a day, why am I going to make a big deal about this one person...." - what other point does that comment have than to just be different and start an argument.

First of all, it's sad to see someone who was so talented, and have the possibility of having so much, and throwing it away because of an addiction.

Second, it's a representation of people all over who are taken over by addiction.

Third, we feel a connection to her, so we would feel more emotion hearing about Whitney Houston dying than hearing about some one we didn't know in the next town over - but we would be more emotionally affected if say, our cousin died from a drug overdose.

Do people not THINK before they say or write things like that? It's pretty obvious to figure out. I'm not impressed by the attempt at being deep and philosophical.

People like this have lost touch with reality, and it's ridiculous. "Three celebrities in a row died"--one of whom committed suicide--but 30,000 black non-celebs in her age group die every day. Get a grip! People put them on some elevated level, as if their deaths are prophetic or surreal. THAT'S the kind of craziness I just can't tolerate and will not sympathize with.

I'm NOT going to extend "extra" sympathy toward someone who turned to drugs and/or alcohol because their life became so damn great as a result of their fame and fortune. Step out of the limelight if it's that bad. Join us mere mortals here on Earth--many of whom struggle with the death of children and others close to us, infidelity, job losses, terminal illnesses, poverty, different forms and levels of abuse, etc. all without turning to drugs and alcohol.

Call me what you (gy) like...I don't mind. She gets the same level of respect in death that anyone else would get from me--nothing more. I just received a text from my friend about WH's funeral details...I.DON'T.CARE!!! I'm not going, girl! U goin'? Of course she's not...she wouldn't be allowed within a mile of that funeral.

It's something about the taste, I'm not sure what it is. I've tried to like pineapple, I wanted to like it. I'm not too fond of the texture either.

Someone just ordered pasta with butter and cheese sans butter and cheese. Sigh. You just paid for plain boiled noodles.
