When walking outside is an adventure for lunch is too much of an adventure.
Little plastic orange containers come to the rescue…

Como dice @ledudette:
Así ando por la vida, complicándomela.

I just want to know they are comfortable. — Troy (community)
Here is a picture of how i look like. Under the bandage are a bunch of cables that…
are connected to this thing that records my brain waves for 3 days.
Every once in a while things happen that make you reflect upon many things on your life. For the past year and a half I have been living an adventure few people get to live. Even fewer people from my country get to work in Silicon Valley and be amongst the few that really work in shaping the future of the web, social media, commerce, mobile etc.
Going with the pack has never been much my deal. I sometimes feel too much like a regular dude but hanging out with ‘the crazies’, ‘the entrepreneurs’, ‘the hipsters’ and ‘the geniuses’ kinda skews the parameter of what is normal and what is great.
Moving to a new and exiting place away from all the conforts and familiar environments can certainly cause a lot of stress and anxiety. It is not easy but I have enjoyed every second of it. I hardly think that is a reason for the scary and intense anxiety I experience on occasions because I live for such emotions. It feels more like an intense self awareness that traps me when I want to move fast and control a situation for no apparent reason. Its a recursive, self fulfilling prophecy I impose myself to which I say to my self.
Its ok to slow down!
Looking at this from the bright side. I now feel I can wear an Afro wig and feel less self conscious than right now :P I hope the next post is about my pictures with an afro!
I never knew why I felt so drawn to this painting. Turns out Edvard Munch is depicting how a severe panic attack feels. I now feel I must start painting.
The following day, I attended a workshop about preventing gender violence, facilitated by Katz. There, he posed a question to all of the men in the room: “Men, what things do you do to protect yourself from being raped or sexually assaulted?”
Not one man, including myself, could quickly answer the question. Finally, one man raised his hand and said, “Nothing.” Then Katz asked the women, “What things do you do to protect yourself from being raped or sexually assaulted?” Nearly all of the women in the room raised their hand. One by one, each woman testified:
“I don’t make eye contact with men when I walk down the street,” said one.
“I don’t put my drink down at parties,” said another.
“I use the buddy system when I go to parties.”
“I cross the street when I see a group of guys walking in my direction.”
“I use my keys as a potential weapon.”
The women went on for several minutes, until their side of the blackboard was completely filled with responses. The men’s side of the blackboard was blank. I was stunned. I had never heard a group of women say these things before. I thought about all of the women in my life—including my mother, sister and girlfriend—and realized that I had a lot to learn about gender. —
