About Me I'm picky...some say anyway :p I see it more as knowing what I don't makes me one step closer to know what I DO want and like...
I hate sunday drivers on tuesdays...! Love music...I wouldn‘t want to live without rhythm

I love dancing, shoes & clouds! I don't particularly like humans...most of us are...well slobs (which is ok to some degree), mean, or stupid(which I don't get) I rather chill with my's true...

Love to Learn...I'm fascinated by human behaviour. Cognition, perception and neurobiological processes are my favourite subjects. I am a full time student at Concordia University - majoring in Psychology, Honours neuroscience :D

So, despite my anti-social attributes I'd prob still like to get to know you...if your all about the JOURNEY and not the DESTINATION then we should get along just fine...oh and as long as you don't hurt/kill animals...!! Please.

I believe in reincarnation...cycle of life...pass the power of mother nature's will...I acknowledge the universe...and am conscious of the future generations that may attempt a living here on earth...

I'll listen to all the complaining in the world but only from those that will stand to do something about it all once they are done ranting and complaining.

Life is about living...Don't just sit around wait for something or someone to hit you over the head with your own life...cuz it's prob not gonna happen.

I love learning...I love exploring...I love making mistakes...I love Love...and making Love...I love climbing and skiing...I love spiritual stuff but not cults...

I love adorable things but hate to be called cute...

I love real women that aren't afraid to shout it...I'm a woman and feeling fine...If your afraid of getting dirty, I'm not for you...I love showering after getting all worked up and dirty...clean off an excellent day to start a new one...wake up, get out and do it...
My Philosophy "Maître et Disciple de soi-même, pour une paix de l'âme vers une paix de l'humanité, pour une société nouvelle"

"A striving for a Community which must be thought as everlasting" (Alfred Alder)

-Suicide rates are higher in the elderly than in any other age group (this means, Take Care of Your Grandparents!!!)

-If you love those who love you, what right have you to claim any credit?...I say to you, Love your enemies (Matthew 5:46, 44)

-History is made by minorities that sway majorities
What Gives Me Hope Love, Art & True Smiles.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
What/who changed my life and why
What Bugs Me Liars, ignorance, abusive people  
Passions learning and growing, Love  
Inspirations stories and legends  
What Scares Me humans, USA's descent into a faciest nation  
Role Models  
Quotation -Working cooperatively has especially favourable effects under conditions that lead people to define a new, inclusion group that dissolves their former subgroups. However, if previously conflicting groups fail in a cooperative effort, and if the conditions allow them to attribute their failures to each other, the conflict may worsen. (Social Psych.)

-Four Cs of Peacemaking: contact, cooperation, communication, conciliation

-When in conflict do not assume thar the other fails to share your values and morality. Rather, compare perceptions, assuming that the other is likely perceiving the situation differently (Social Psych.)
-There are no exceptions to the rule that everybody wants to be an exception to the rule (Malcolm Forbes)

-Consider the irony of countries where ordinary pple demande the right to own guns for personal experience-- and end up collectively less secure than those in countries where ordinary pple are not armed (Social Psychology).

-Neither the historical record nor the psychological evidence supports the idea that threatening an enemy with big sticks, such as nuclear weapons, deters war (Social Psychology).

-Men offered more help when the persons in need were females. Women offered help equally to males and females. (This doesnt mean women are better, this means men were brainwashed)

-Peace is the outcome of a creatively managed conflict

-To beleive is to see - perception bias (me)

-Exposure to violent pornography increases punitive behaviour towards women (Koop)

-By the end of elementary school, the average child views some 8000 TV murders and 100 000 violent acts (Huston et al, 1992)

-TV programs acts of assault outnumber affective acts 4 to 1

-Genocide is not plural of homicide. Massacres are social phenomena fed by moral imperatives --a collective mentality (Zajonc, 2000)

-After a war, a nation's murder rate tends to jump (Archer & Gartner)

-Expressing hostility bred more hostility

-Pornography is the theory and rape is the practice (Robin Morgan)

-Penser Globalement, Agir Localement.

-We respond not to reality as it is but to reality as we construe it.

-Once you have a belief, it influences how you perceive all other relevant information (Robert Jervis).

-It's not to forget, it's to move on (me)

-What is done, is done and gone, so why cry? (me)

-The ancestor of every action is a thought (Emerson)

-we are very well trained and very good at finding reasons for what we do, but not very good at doing what we find reasons for (Abelson)

-Wounded pride motivates retaliation

-the "I got" "he gave" syndrome: Self-serving bias; When you get a good result you tend to attribute the success to personal dispotions, while if you get a negative result you tend to blame the evaluator. Hence, "I GOT a good grade, he GAVE me a bad grade"

-People are less critical of information when it supports their preferred conclusions

-Do or do not. There is no try (Jedi Master Yoda)

-Two-thirds of what we see is behind our eyes (Chinese proverb)

-No one speaks of us in our presence as in our absense (Pascal, Pensees 1670)

-People that blame others for their social difficulties are often unhappier than people who can acknowledge thier mistakes

-True humility is more like self-forgetfulness than false modesty

-Modesty is an art of ostentation (Francis Bacon)

-Ritual is religion dancing (Kessler)

-One must want nothing changed, neither up, nor down, to not only bear what is necessary, but to love it (Nietzsche)

-Canadians have traditionally championed the value of multiculturalism in which all groups are appreciated and valued for their culture and tradition by the group as a whole.

-Subgroups identity and social cohesion can exist (Social Psych.)

-Marginal people, who have neither an ethnic nor a mainstream identity, often have low self-esttem. Bicultural people, who affirm both identities (ex: a child with Portuguese parents but she/he was born, raised and resides in Canada), typically have a strongly positive self-concept. (Social Psych)
