A beautiful depiction of the #Mestizaje and #Mulatez of #PuertoRicans who everyday wrestle with the fact that our blood drips of slavery and freedom, capture and conquest, poverty and wealth, colonized and colonizer, injustice and justice. In the words of the late Ada María Isasi-Díaz, this is our identity: “Mestizaje and mulatez are what ‘socially situates’ us Hispanics in the USA. This means that mestizaje and mulatez as the theological locus of Hispanics delineate the finite alternatives we have for thinking, conceiving, expressing our theology. For example, because mestizaje and mulatez socially situate our theology, our theology cannot but understand all racism and ethnic prejudice as sin and embracing of diversity as virtue. This means that the coming of the kin-dom of God has to do with a coming together of peoples, with no one being excluded and at the expense of no one. Furthermore, mestizaje and mulatez mean that the unfolding of the kingdom of God happens when instead of working to become part of structures of exclusion we struggle to do away with such structures. Because of the way mainline society thinks about mestizas and mulatas, we cannot but think about the divine in non-elitist, non-hierarchical ways.”

Hey all! I have found a lot more great places since my last post! I will post the link then the largest measurements they carry so that there wont be any size confusion! (Measurements are in inches. Bust - Waist - Hips.)
I’m not dividing this one into sections so there are some that only carry dresses, some that only carry lingerie, and some that carry all types of clothing!
^ - runs large
v - runs small
** - This shop varies from garment to garment
*** - Does custom sizes
I miss my family, I’m too busy, not sleeping well and drowning under a sea of reading. But! I have potato kale soup so it’s not so bad…
Please help me continue further the awareness of what Reclaiming the Latina Tag is all about via the painted portrait and taking it to the art world. I was just invited to a two week artist in residency at MASS MoCa, where i will be working on my painted series entitled “Reclaming the Latina tag: #Latina” contact me via my website for more details on how your selfie can become part of my series. naydacuevasart dot com
Things aren’t always going to be easy.
When you turn 15 you’ll meet him.
And two months later you will give him everything.
It’s not beautiful.
Don’t fool yourself.
Look, you are going to pack up and move away
but you won’t be happy when you get there.
Call your mom and tell her you love her.
(and don’t sign that second lease)
Don’t marry him. He’s not the one.
Listen to your heart when you make the guest list
and forget to include yourself.
That sick feeling won’t be nerves.
Run, I know you want to.
Baby girl, you are beautiful.
Don’t spend those years pushing down on your hipbones.
Be gentle to your body.
When you are 19, you’ll fall in love with yourself.
Please listen to me.
When he says he doesn’t know why he loves you, just walk away.
That boy only loves the way your body curves around his.
Don’t stop writing.
One day you will get the courage to share your words.
You’ll regret ripping the pages and burning your journal of five years.
(don’t listen when he says your words are pathetic)
And I know you won’t understand this but
the guy who drives the jeep, he’ll kiss you on the beach.
Please tell him not to give up,
you might just save a life.
⚡️⚡️ thunda thighs ⚡️⚡️
Jamás entendí esto de “thunder thighs” como insulto. Suena de puta madre. Como el nombre de una superheroína. Mis muslos son nada menos que un fenómeno meteorológico. Un pequeño milagro de la naturaleza.
Where the magic happens. Last semester I had a window, this semester I just have Focus….
This is probably the most beautiful apple pie I have ever made…
I may be done but I think I may add one more flower. Too much?
I can’t stop myself.
This is all for today… My thumbs are raw
Progress… Ouch my thumbs…. Embroidery Pains and #loveisnotsupposedtohurt
Me: Hey, Duck. You got a message.
Ducky: I don’t recall that. Did you do it while I was asleep? I like a nice massage as much as the next doggie, but…
Ducky: You said what now?
Ducky: Oh! That’s not like a massage at all.
Me: Not at all, no.
Ducky: Kinda got me in the mood for a massage to be honest with you.
Me: Later. What about the request?
Ducky: Aaaaaaaaah, yes! The request!
Me: You weren’t paying attention, were you?
Ducky: I heard my name a lot. But frankly all your talk of massages has been a bit of a distraction.
Me: There are two people who call each other Ducky.
Ducky: Little weird. What with that being my name and all.
Me: That’s the point. They call each other Ducky so the one Ducky wants you, Ducky, to make the other person called Duckie smile.
Ducky: Maybe she’d like a massage.
Me: She gets sad sometime.
Ducky: Like you!
Ducky: Now I get it! You get sad, she gets sad. I’m named Ducky, they stole my name! We have a lot in common so it’s no wonder they want to pay us back with a massage!
Me: You really aren’t that confused you just…
Ducky: Want a massage, yes.
Me: It does help with the sads.
Ducky: It doesn’t hurt. And even if you’re not sad, it’s good for Duckies!
Me: I love you, Ducky. Roll over.
Ducky: MASSAGE TIME!!!!!
Ducky: I love you, Daddy!
Ag & Ducky
This warms my heart
The Cornell Method
The Cornell method provides a systematic format for condensing and organizing notes without laborious recopying. After writing the notes in the main space, use the left-hand space to label each idea and detail with a key word or “cue.”
Rule your paper with a 2 ½ inch margin on the left leaving a six-inch area on the right in which to make notes. During class, take down information in the six-inch area. When the instructor moves to a new point, skip a few lines. After class, complete phrases and sentences as much as possible. For every significant bit of information, write a cue in the left margin. To review, cover your notes with a card, leaving the cues exposed. Say the cue out loud, then say as much as you can of the material underneath the card. When you have said as much as you can, move the card and see if what you said matches what is written. If you can say it, you know it.
Organized and systematic for recording and reviewing notes. Easy format for pulling out major concept and ideas. Simple and efficient. Saves time and effort. “Do-it-right-in-the-first-place” system.
When to Use
In any lecture situation.
The Outlining Method
Dash or indented outlining is usually best except for some science classes such as physics or math.
- The information which is most general begins at the left with each more specific group of facts indented with spaces to the right.
- The relationships between the different parts is carried out through indenting.
- No numbers, letters, or Roman numerals are needed.
Listening and then write in points in an organized pattern based on space indention. Place major points farthest to the left. Indent each more specific point to the right. Levels of importance will be indicated by distance away from the major point. Indention can be as simple as or as complex as labeling the indentations with Roman numerals or decimals. Markings are not necessary as space relationships will indicate the major/minor points.
Well-organized system if done right. Outlining records content as well as relationships. It also reduces editing and is easy to review by turning main points into questions.
Requires more thought in class for accurate organization. This system may not show relationships by sequence when needed. It doesn’t lend to diversity of a review attach for maximum learning and question application. This system cannot be used if the lecture is too fast.
When to Use
The outline format can be used if the lecture is presented in outline organization. This may be either deductive (regular outline) or inductive (reverse outline where minor points start building to a major point). Use this format when there is enough time in the lecture to think about and make organization decisions when they are needed. This format can be most effective when your note taking skills are super sharp and you can handle the outlining regardless of the note taking situation.
- Extrasensory perception
- definition: means of perceiving without use of sense organs.
- three kinds
- telepathy: sending messages
- clairvoyance: forecasting the future
- psychokinesis: perceiving events external to situation
- current status
- no current research to support or refute
- few psychologists say impossible
- door open to future
The Mapping Method
Mapping is a method that uses comprehension/concentration skills and evolves in a note taking form which relates each fact or idea to every other fact or idea. Mapping is a graphic representation of the content of a lecture. It is a method that maximizes active participation, affords immediate knowledge as to its understanding, and emphasizes critical thinking.
This format helps you to visually track your lecture regardless of conditions. Little thinking is needed and relationships can easily be seen. It is also easy to edit your notes by adding numbers, marks, and color coding. Review will call for you to restructure thought processes which will force you to check understanding. Review by covering lines for memory drill and relationships. Main points can be written on flash or note cards and pieced together into a table or larger structure at a later date.
You may not hear changes in content from major points to facts.
When to Use
Use when the lecture content is heavy and well-organized. May also be used effectively when you have a guest lecturer and have no idea how the lecture is going to be presented.
The Charting Method
If the lecture format is distinct (such as chronological), you may set up your paper by drawing columns and labeling appropriate headings in a table.
Determine the categories to be covered in the lecture. Set up your paper in advance by columns headed by these categories. As you listen to the lecture, record information (words, phrases, main ideas, etc.) into the appropriate category.
Helps you track conversation and dialogues where you would normally be confused and lose out on relevant content. Reduces amount of writing necessary. Provides easy review mechanism for both memorization of facts and study of comparisons and relationships.
Few disadvantages except learning how to use the system and locating the appropriate categories. You must be able to understand what’s happening in the lecture
When to Use
Test will focus on both facts and relationships. Content is heavy and presented fast. You want to reduce the amount of time you spend editing and reviewing at test time. You want to get an overview of the whole course on one big paper sequence.
The Sentence Method
Write every new thought, fact or topic on a separate line, numbering as you progress.
Slightly more organized than the paragraph. Gets more or all of the information. Thinking to tract content is still limited.
Can’t determine major/minor points from the numbered sequence. Difficult to edit without having to rewrite by clustering points which are related. Difficult to review unless editing cleans up relationship.
When to Use
Use when the lecture is somewhat organized, but heavy with content which comes fast. You can hear the different points, but you don’t know how they fit together. The instructor tends to present in point fashion, but not in grouping such as “three related points.”
Example 1:A revolution is any occurrence that affects other aspects of life, such as economic life, social life, and so forth. Therefore revolutions cause change. (See page 29 to 30 in your text about this.)
Sample Notes:Revolution - occurrence that affects other aspects of life: e.g., econ., socl., etc. C.f. text, pp. 29-30
Example 2:Melville did not try to represent life as it really was. The language of Ahab, Starbuck, and Ishmael, for instance, was not that of real life.
Sample Notes:Mel didn’t repr. life as was; e.g., lang. of Ahab, etc. not of real life.
Example 3:At first, Freud tried conventional, physical methods of treatment such as giving baths, massages, rest cures, and similar aids. But when these failed, he tried techniques of hypnosis that he had seen used by Jean-Martin Charcot. Finally, he borrowed an idea from Jean Breuer and used direct verbal communication to get an unhypnotized patient to reveal unconscious thoughts.
Sample Notes:Freud 1st – used phys. trtment; e.g., baths, etc. This fld. 2nd – used hypnosis (fr. Charcot) Finally – used dirct vrb. commun. (fr. Breuer) - got unhynop, patnt to reveal uncons. thoughts.
