I was looking at a description of my zodiac symbol from this tattoo design website and really connected with the descriptors. I am friendly, hopefully charming, and certainly an idealist. I'm no longer the romantic that I once was but I have been longing it. I make informed decisions and that requires asking many questions but I can agree with the indecisiveness. Wimpy? I don't seek conflict if that's what you're referring to.
I do seek justice. It's one reason for why I chose social work. It's also why Batman is an adored figure of mine. Okay, that was geeky but true.

I drove my brother-in-law's car to the local Coffee Bean for a quick study session today. During the first turn I made I used the left turn signal. The noise from the turn signal in this Mazda brought back memories and although I couldn't pin point the memory, it elicited a soothing memory in my mind.

Much of what we currently discuss in my courses at CSUDH revolve around privilege. It reminds me of what I thought was a privilege during my early childhood. My folks couldn't afford certain luxuries for us once my father suffered the plight of unemployment. When my mother would take us along for a quick trip to the mall, I would always want to walk in the KB Toys store. I believe they no longer exist. For me, it was a privilege just to walk inside and look at the newest and greatest toys for that season. I don't and didn't hold any anger towards my folks because (even then) I understood that they did their best with the means that were available to them. Still, I find that I somewhat treasure these moments. The experience of going out as a family and being together outweighed the desire to have the newest toy.
