Wow it was ages ago hahahahaa, I didn’t even rememeber the post.

Wow. Just… wow.
I didn’t log into the forum for the last 6 days, I come back and.. wow.
I’ve read each and every one of the replies, including Max, DrRalph’s, and Alyssa. I’m sorry that you have that picture of ALL of us.
The worst part? Well, the worst part is that I can’t be mad at you and your points of view, because you don’t really know nothing, and I said since the beggining that all answers would be accepted, so my word stands.
However, I repeat. You don’t really know nothing about mexican immigrants, and I don’t blame anyone of you. It’s just that it seems you compare them to animals or plagues, and that really REALLY bugged me. It is hard enough for a normal person to leave their families. Now imagine to leave your family, knowing all the risks and the perks of the fact that they will be hunted down, not just by the border police, but also inside Mexico, and inside your country. They have no really safe place.
Now you might be thinking “Oh this girl is being too much of an idiot to see the reality of the situation and the fact that they don’t pay taxes and live awesomely since they avoid them and they send money outside our US” or whatever.
Are you kidding? Most of them don’t have a decent job because they are MEXICAN. And expect them to have a decent income and pay taxes? Don’t tell me that most of the times being Mexican isn’t the same as being an illegal immigrant, even though I have a VISA as a tourist or whatever kind. It might be true that probably you guys won’t show any racist or discriminative behaviour towards one of them, but truth be told, it is ******* common in the other side of the border line any kind of mistreat towards latin americans, not just mexican people.
But then again, I respect your opinion, even if it pisses me of just a little bit.
2012-05-16 12:49:25 on So I feel like I am a creative person, but I lack talent.
In order to be good at something, you must have the skill, right?
Talent and skill are quite different things. Now, if you want to materialize your ideas, you can LEARN how.
Take art or drawing courses, it really really helps.
It’s like, you can have this awesome musical ideas, but you don’t know how to play the piano or any basic instrument at all. So you get discouraged since you know nothing… so you leave aside those awesome ideas.
Noo man, you must learn piano basics, and work it all over. By the end, I will have the skill and the ideas, and as a result, I will probably see most of my ideas turn to reality.
2012-05-16 12:39:03 on i’m sick of having this problem
Dude how many years old are you?
I know someone, oh god, he told exactly the same words you’ve written…
He used to be shy, and there were literally one, or two living individuals in his whole word that would see him to be more loose, and not shy. Of course, he hated the fact that he wasn’t as outgoing as most people at the classroom, or at least as an average dude.
He was really really realllllllllllly shy. Buy hey, it was just part of his essence and I respected that, but guys at school can be really rude, and won’t really give a **** if he is or he isn’t nice or a cool person. They would just pick at him and piss him off just because he didn’t really talk like.. at all?
He knew that and that his non-speakiness was the main problem, and he hated that, and himself for it. But well, I could just only be there for him and try to encourage him not to think like that.
Anyways, he loved drawing and painting and stuff, so he got into an art club, and there he didn’t really talk much either, but he got to socialize with other people besides his family and me. And that ACTUALLY helped to overcome his shyness.
From there, I tried to encourage him to get into other clubs too besides his art club, and he blew me away until I (don’t remember how) got to convince him to get into this newspaper project (I don’t know how it is in english… periódico escolar???).
It seemed that he was really good at it, and he really enjoyed it. His project mates got to know him and to like him better during those exhausting hours of team work, and somehow, he started to be less and lessss shy. I mean, I’m not saying he turned into a casanova or NOTHING like that. I’m just saying that he was different, in a good way.
Lol IDK I think that doing things besides school and meeting people he would’nt really meet in a normal situation worked for him, and maybe iit would work out for you too.

[quote Dragon_Lady]Well…putting the tourism questions aside, I think Mexico should apply to become part of the United States.
It would solve a lot of the economical problems of both countries, IMO, and raise the standard of living in places like Rocky Point.[/quote]
I think I have to strongly disagree with you on this one. I think my country has all the potential and resources to greatly overcome situations like the one you mentioned, and many others we are really aware of.
We just need the correct mind set, and the will-power of each one of the citizens to change the things that are wrong, and see more progress around.
I don’t mean to sound cocky, or in denial of our problems. I just have faith in my country, and that we have good opportunities to progress and be better than we are right now, no need to get attached to any country.
But thanks for your opinion though.
ALL OF YOU 3
You make the world a better place helping me on this research :D
2012-05-08 18:33:53 on Please pleaseee answer my question down below about mx
I’m sorry haha, I meant the question on my previous post (:
this one :D
2012-05-08 18:27:56 on HEY PEOPLE-NOT-FROM-MEXICO!
[quote verge]I was only in Mexico for two days. I saw the pyramids and it was hot, then we asked our taxi driver to just take us to the nicest beach he knew of and he drove my family to the most beautiful tranquil place I think I’ll ever see. It was this amazingly large, clear blue lake that was completely uninhabited and surrounded in white sand and palm trees. It was like straight out of a corona commercial. Other than that, I’ve heard that mexico city is ridiculously dangerous and you’ll probably get jumped if you go, but my cousin went and had an okay time. I also know cinco de mayo isn’t a holiday in Mexico, it isn’t Mexican independence day, that is in September. Lots of Americans think that it is a Mexican holiday because random college students from the US started celebrating it to promote diversity.[/quote]
It sounds beautiful :)
Can you please tell me where did you go? Was it Mexico City? Oh and where do you come from??
Anddddddd you are correct!! Here we don’t really celebrate cinco de mayo hahah, but no one works that day, or goes to school, so it is indeed a holiday.
We celebrate 15 and 16th of september (independence day)
That’s a massssssssssive celebration in the whole country.
Thanks a lot for answering!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D!!!

Oh wow awesome!!! thank you Bianca :))

r[quote Dragon_Lady]I’m in the USA. I went to Rocky Point. I planned to go for a whole week, and travel around the country a bit, but things went sour and I returned home. But the small amount of the place I saw was really depressing.
I keep thinking maybe someday I’d like to go further south and see what is down there, but…the sandy, gritty food was the worst part. I just can’t imagine myself trying to eat that everyday.[/quote]
I see, I’m really sorry you had an experience like the one you describe :(
There are beautiful places in the north of Mexico,though.
I must admit that I haven’t gone to Puerto Peñasco in my life, but I’ve been in Sonora and it is a bit sandy, yes, haha.
I might recommend you to give it a second try visiting Los Cabos, or Mazatlan, in the north, or Cancún, Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco, going more at south.
But it’s okay if you don’t want to hahaha it’s understandable.
Greets and thanks for answering!! :D

[quote mindhealer]I went to Mexico city, and a shop attendant surprised me by saying, ‘Hi, how can I help you?’ - in English, so I was happy to speak English back, but she didn’t understand anything else. And I had pictures from inside the cathedral and we went to the pyramids of the sun and the moon somewhere southeast before going to the city of Oaxaca, which was great and someone painted neat pictures there, and then I spent time in some tourist town on the west coast, before it was a tourist town, they were just building it. It was fun. And I’ve heard from people fro Mexico that the Aztecs came from outer space. That’s all I remember, I hope it helps!
(Also there was a lake in a volcano with a monster that only eats men, that’s what Isidro, an old man from Mexico, told me.)[/quote]
Thank you sososo much for the answer Mindhealer!
Oh and those pyramids rock. Our hystorical background is one of the many things of Mexico that I am very proud of, in spite of every other negative aspects of our country.
2012-05-08 18:10:38 on HEY PEOPLE-NOT-FROM-MEXICO!
I’ll never forget the weekend I spent in Mexico. The cigarettes that tasted like sand, the soda pop that tasted like sand, the food that was gritty and tasted like sand.
The cockroaches the size of Buicks. The tiny children running around almost completely naked and entirely unsupervised.
Nope, I’ll stay on this side of the border. :D[/quote]
Oh wow hahah that sounds unpleasant!Can you please tell me where did you go??
Ohh and your country please!! It’s a poll :)
2012-05-08 18:08:06 on HEY PEOPLE-NOT-FROM-MEXICO!
It’s not stupid at all Bianca, actually it’s interesting :D !!
Thank’s for answering!
Are you north american, european, or asian?? Hahah I only need to know your country (: It’s a poll.
Oh!!! and the sunny thing, yes, it is very sunny here!!!
Ask: what do you love?
Not necessarily who or whom, but everyone loves to be listened when talking of the thing, or things, or people, that he or she really loves and enjoys.
That’s what I think lol idk.
2012-04-05 01:39:03 on Anyone here a fan of dubstep?
No dude !! I think it’s awesome!! No boredom at all, don’t worry. And yes, that’s exactly what I’ve been thinking all along. Skrillex is waaaaay over produced, not just sometimes, but almost every song of his!
I’ll look for those ones you suggested (: Thanks a lot, really!
And I know it’s not dubstep, but I really like this Seven Nation Army- the White Stripes remix made by The Glitch Mob… Don’t know if you’ve heard of it, but I really enjoy it.
2012-04-05 01:26:43 on I want to die.
Dude, everyone has its moments of feeling useless, or grey, or not outstanding in any way.
But let me tell you it’s just matter of time until you find that one thing that makes life better, or at least, that makes it suck less.
It’s just matter of time,so if you die on purpose you won’t really EVER know what it feels like to find that one thing.
