Dear Coke Talk: On the obvious choice. →
Med school, peace corps, or theology grad school? Really? A priest, a hippie, or a doctor? Gee, I wonder which of those three the world needs more. Don’t be an asshole. Go to medical school. If you still want to save the third world in a few years, feel free to join Doctors Without Borders. Those bad ass motherfuckers eat peace corps pussies for breakfast. Oh, and it should be explicitly...
This past weekend, I went to watch a Trojan Men concert, mainly to support my man Muhiyyuddin, but also to enjoy two hours of astounding acapella music. For those of you who don’t know who the Trojan Men are…please watch this. And this. Watching my friend perform on stage made me miss the feeling of being on stage myself. Back in high school, this wasn’t really a problem for...
My Last OChem Lab
I went to my last OChem lab ever today. Will I miss the people I met in lab? Sure. Will I miss lab itself? Will I miss toiling on those lab reports? Absolutely not. To both.
Dear Coke Talk: On dating in los angeles. →
I’m having trouble dating, specifically dating in Los Angeles, the land of superficiality. I’m a med student and I’ve been in Maxim, so I’m surrounded by nerds & get hit on by douchebags, neither of which I want to date. I keep getting wrapped up in men who are smart & successful but more interested in their jobs than me. What’s a girl to do to find an honest, hardworking family man...

Q #2: Are You Happy Yet?
YES. I am so thrilled right now. I received a call today (4/19) notifying me that I was selected for THV Assistant Director (refer to this post). I was not expecting to be picked at all, since there had to be at least 15-20 applicants, for only one available spot. I don’t think I’ve had to beat odds like that, at least not recently (1/20 = 5% acceptance rate). Furthermore, I had...
While reading for Gender Studies today, I learned that the negative stereotypes directed towards Mexican-Americans have not always been that of a gangbanger, criminal, or dirty immigrant. A century ago, many Latino stereotypes were primarily silly: snoozing next to a cactus, eating greasy food, always being late/disorganized, and shrugging with self-deprecation “me no speek good...
The English language continues to confound me. I’ve recently tried out Chatroulette, and the implications of race couldn’t have been more clear; ignoring the dicks, a vast majority of users were white and would say things such as: “Do you like ping pong? Holy shit, hook me up with a fuckin’ Playstation.” “FUCKEN ASIAN.” “OMG ASIAN”...

Q: Are you happy?
I don’t really have anyone right now to talk to about this, so I’m going to post here. I just need to get some thoughts down. For perhaps the first time in my life, the answer to this question is a resounding “no.” These past few weeks have been an absolute nightmare for me, marked by rejection and failure. This has been such a downhill spiral; I feel like I’m losing...
