Butterfly effect

Being an undocumented immigrant wears on you.

With all the shit that you put up with day in and day out, it's very easy for a good day to become a bad day. And when your days are pretty much the same, well then its fairly easy to have a butterfly effect that will lead to a chaotic hour, which in turn wreaks havoc on the rest of the week, and so on and so forth. It's like an evil version of Bill Murray's "Groundhog Day".

On such circumstances I try my hardest to focus on the little things that matter. A nice breeze, some good grub, a great song, the sun whatever.

Today's item of focus: beautiful Stanford campus.


  1. Not to belittle the content of your post (which I can completely relate to), but wasn't Bill Murray's "Groundhog Day" already evil?

  2. no i thought it was hilarious! evil? no, maybe mean
