o4. views on religion.
I believe in humanity. I believe we need to accept people of all races, genders, sexes, sexual orientations, ethnicities, socioeconomic backgrounds and unite to solve the world’s problems instead of dividing ourselves along lines as rigid as the ones religions create. Human beings, like everything else, are ever-changing. Nothing is made to stay the same, so why should we follow rules that...
o3. your thoughts on drugs/alcohol.
I don’t drink, nor do I do any drug. I also don’t smoke cigarettes. My thoughts are that I don’t enjoy these things. Other people do, and that’s fine. I think it’s kinda lame when people base their entire “fun” around drinking or smoking, though. There are a lot of ways to spend your time and money, not just those. People are often surprised to hear that I...
o2. where you'd like to be in ten years.
In ten years, I will be 30. I will have finally celebrated my golden birthday. I hope to be rich, and possibly famous. But mainly rich. Doing what? I’m not sure. I went into college thinking I would be some sort of crazy awesome public relations person or music business management person. Ideally, I would like to do something in that field. I would also like to eventually own my own music...
anything to avoid homework: Hi, your name is: Diana Carolina Rocha The last person you kissed, do they love you? yes, she does. Do you know what your name would have been if you were opposite sex? Oscar. Thank Cod I was born a girl. Do you have any twins in your family? Nope; woulda had my siblings if they didn’t die. Have you ever talked on the phone in the shower/ bathtub? Uhhm, no I...
o1. your current relationship.
well, i’ve been with sam for over a year and a half now. there have been some speed bumps along the way, and we’ve definitely had some big disagreements, but we’re both tirelessly persistent. our relationship has brought me both the saddest sads (with my parents) and the lightest heart. i’m glad i have samantha to grow with, travel with, eat with, interpret art with and...
29. your opinions on Glee.
i don’t watch it. i saw the first episode and didn’t find it very funny. though i don’t think it’s exactly my type of humour, i think the singing talent on the show is great. i’ve heard a few of the Glee covers and they sound pretty good. the show itself just doesn’t interest me too much.
28. your first celebrity crush.
i think that would be nick carter.
27. favorite names (3 of each)
boys names: 1. adam 2. stephen 3. james 4. benjamin 5. joel girls names: 1. alice 2. luna 3. clementine pet names: 1. mortimer (for a greyhound) 2. woody 3. mr. lincoln
26. name one place you'd love to visit one day.
I would love to visit Maine. There are plenty of other places, but I think this is one of the most reasonable. I would like to visit the L.L.Bean outlet and the giant boot, and I would love to go whale watching as well. It seems like a very beautiful place and I would very much like to visit.
25. tell us about the last book you read.
Wow, I don’t even know what it is (which is really sad). I didn’t really read anything I should have for school. I bought This is Where I Leave You over the summer and still haven’t finished it, but it’s very, very funny. I took out The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe and hope to read that…but I don’t know that it will. My priority now is re-reading...
24. tell us about the last movie you saw in...
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. Ummmmm, it was ammazzziiingggg and I agree with everyone who told me it was the best adaptation so far. It was wonderful and I easily could have wept through the entire film. It made me want to read the series again, and now I am. It made me realize this last chapter of my life is coming to a close and it makes me incredibly sad, but I’m also...
23. opinions on lady gaga.
mmmreeeehhh. i think she is overrated, but she seems like a nice enough girl. seems like she is truly appreciative of her fans. sometimes, she doesn’t seem genuine to me and i sometimes think she should ponder more on what she says before she says it, but she is okay. i don’t “worship” her. i don’t think she’s anything ultra special. she’s a popstar, she...
i don’t have many hobbies. i spend way too much time online, but i really really enjoy d.i.y. stuff. i get it from my mom, she knows how to do everything: sewing, crocheting, knitting, embroidery, bedazzling, etc. she’s super woman. i like to watch tv and read, and i like spending money. i also like sleeping. other than those things, i like eating ice cream and i like walking around...
21. your favorite subject to study.
i like learning about autism and andy warhol. also, conspiracy theories in general. i also enjoy learning about the soviet union, and jewish people.
20. do you wear glasses? what for?
yes, i do. i am near-sighted and have been wearing glasses since 7th grade. weirdly, my prescription has gotten worse and then better. i usually wear my contacts. it usually depends on whether it’s sunny or not. if it is, i want to wear sunglasses, you know.
andy's right, i think.
“People sometimes say that the way things happen in the movies is unreal, but actually it’s the way things happen to you in life that’s unreal. The movies make emotions look so strong and real, whereas when things really do happen to you, it’s like watching television — you don’t feel anything.
A Mother's Journey
awarewolves: Note: I’ve come across this beautiful set of photographs sometime last year, and I see it fit to share it with you as we mourn for our own loved ones and all the others who already passed away. Let us altogether offer this day of prayer to the souls of our dead, both eternally remembered and also those who are neglected and forgotten. - A...
19. initals of yours crush(es).
SR. AC. CO. SC. TF. AL. BM.GB. lulz, all but one is a celebrity.
18. do you drink soda more often than milk?
Lately, I don’t think so. I think I’ve been drinking more milk lately because I have been eating a lot of cereal. Generally, I think it might be pretty even, actually, or I might drink slightly more milk.
17. Your thoughts on Ugg boots.
I went through a phase where I really wanted a pair. I think they’re something you wear when you’re bummin’ around.
16. your favorite disney princess movie.
15. tell us your favorite junk food.
Does pizza count? I love pizza. I also thoroughly enjoy chocolate-covered pretzels.
14. talk about being an only child.
What can I say? I mostly enjoyed being an only child growing up. I never wanted any siblings. Well, I wanted older siblings, but that’s not really possible. Anyway, there’s a lot of pressure on only children. You’re the one shot that your parents have at raising a kid successfully and that can be hard. I’m glad I am so close with my cousins because if I wasn’t I think...
13. your opinions on mean girls.
love it. hilarious movie. love to quote it. love that it is still culturally relevant. love that tina fey wrote it. love that tina fey is a woman.
12. your thoughts on harry potter.
love it. love everything about it. loved reading it. love that so many other people have read it. love the movies. love that so many people STARTED reading because of it. love that j.k. is a woman.
11. your top three favorite bands.
good charlotte the killers 2*sweet
random acts of kindness :)
the other day i was standing there, counting my change at the vending machine. i had 70 cents and there is nothing in the vending machine under a dollar. and i was ready to accept my losses and head into my classroom. but this kid from my class was also at the vending machine and he asked if i wanted a quarter. i said, i still wouldn’t be able to afford anything, and he said “what...
10. talk about your pets, pets you want.
i have two parakeets at home: john and yoko. my roommate left me with her betta: dog. i would really like to have a greyhound and name it mortimer.
9. favorite meme at the moment.
i like insanity wolf and forever alone. i also like captcha art, though i don’t know if that counts as a meme. i also really like happy cat.
8. fitness guru or couch potato?
i’m a couch potato. i walk a lot when i’m out because i don’t have a car, but that’s about it. every once in a while, i decide i’m going to start working out and i go to the gym maybe twice that week and then…yeah.
7. how you came across tumblr, how it has changed...
amandashine was the first person i know to have a tumblr, but i didn’t really know what it was. since joining tumblr, i’ve pretty much abandoned livejournal, which is kind of sad. livejournal is way more of an elitist thing, i think. tumblr is more for everyone. it helps me waste time, learn new things, laugh.
6. your favorite season, and why.
autumn. my birthday is in october, i like to wear hoodies and, more importantly, i like to wear hats/scarves/mittens with hoodies and not necessarily needing a coat! overcast is the best light for picture taking. pretty leaves. apple picking. halloween. new school year. hot chocolate.
5. tell us your 3 favorite colors.
1. Purple 2. Purple 3. Black
4. write about your closest friends.
i feel like this is just…waiting to anger someone. ha. maya: my cousin, best friend since..4th grade? we like to quote bad movies, and have about a million inside jokes. can go a long time without seeing each other and then get back together and not miss a beat. she’s a great person and can make me crack up like no other. andi: she currently resides in new york. even when she...
