I can’t believe I didn’t watch a movie. I pencilled it in on my calendar all official like with a heart next to it in excitement. maybe I should’ve used pen. well, in any case, sleep has won out. I got through a few pages of my book (not a school book at least) and now I must sleeeeeeeep.
lol. it’s Thursday night, finally a respite from my dreadful week, and instead of having a couple of beers and watching a movie, I’m sitting here drinking a root beer (because the beer wasn’t cold) and I’m kind of in the mood to read one of my books for class. that’s weird behavior. also, if not any of that maybe just sleep.
I may need to sort out my priorities.
From the series Oaxacan Exodous
Nearly 500,000 indigenous Mexican immigrants, mostly Mixtecos, Zapotecos and Triquis, from the state of Oaxaca, are now estimated to be living in the United States. They are among the most isolated immigrants ever to arrive in America. Some speak only their indigenous language, and some come from villages without cars, electricity, or indoor plumbing.
In California’s Central Valley, where over half of these new migrants have settled, they are quickly becoming a new rural underclass. Living on the fringes of the Valley’s farm labor economy, and isolated by their culture and language, they suffer some of the worst abuses and exploitation in the country.
I hate working and going to college at the same time. Wish I could just do classes. I miss out on all the cool stuff around campus too.
