To The Guy Who Turned Out To Be Different Than What I Thought

Thank you for teaching me some things

To The Guy Who Turned Out To Be Different Than What I Thought

To the guy who ended up not being the person I thought they were,

It is 2018 and it is the year that everyone is shooting their shot. You shot your shot. You had me, I was yours and all yours. Even without the title. You made me feel like the only girl in the world and made me realize that all the shit of my past was not to destroy me, but to make me stronger. Well looks like you are now a part of the making me stronger. I opened up to you. Told you things that I have not told anyone else. Trusted you with my secrets, my heart, and most importantly my trust. That all went out the window didn't it? Never underestimate a girl's ability to find out something, especially if you are lying, because we always find out eventually. And what do you know, you got caught. But ya know what? I am not going to let this shit destroy me again. I will not let you win. I will not sit and think what I could have done better. But I will thank you for a few things.

Thank you for showing me that people do in fact show their true colors after about a month and a half of talking. You were right, once someone is comfortable they show a whole hell of a lot more about themselves. Thank you for showing me that I can do this on my own. I do not need you like I thought I did, how does that make you feel? Thank you for showing me once again who I deserve in my life and who I do not. Thank you for teaching me another life lesson that will in turn make me that much stronger of a person. But ultimately, thank you for not wasting my time longer than you did.

Hopefully the next girl that comes your way gets better treatment than I did. Hopefully you actually do not lie to her and do hold the idea of communication to the standard you set it so highly at. Next time just be upfront and honest and communicate and this will not happen.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.
