entretodoreperiopacisperastrum: I had no idea it’d be that emotional for me. Here’s what I wanted to say to all of you. My name is Laila Navil Molina Licea and I want to make a difference with each passing year. I was not only born in Mexico, but planted into shattered soil and broken winds only to rise and learn to grow… This is so beautiful :)
To those of you who received honors, awards and distinctions, I say well done....– George W. Bush

Random thoughts on a Monday
There’s something really powerful about telling people how awesome they are. I think we always want praise for ourselves to make us feel appreciated, and sometimes we forget the amazing feeling that comes with thanking another person. In helping people realize their potentials and attributes, we find ours. We should start doing it more often, ya know?

I realize more and more every day how badly I want to be a teacher. Today, I started tutoring a 3rd grader named Vanessa. Her dad told me that he works a lot and doesn’t always have the time to help her with her homework. I resisted the urge to say “I’ll seriously come every day to help her! You don’t need to pay me!” I just hate to see her struggling when I have...

I remember a lot about Oakland - the city feel, the lake, the traffic, the trees down my street, my neighbors. Everything at the time seemed important and exciting.
