Noemi’s parents have said little publicly. Her mother, Martha V. Quillay, who works in a hair salon, spoke briefly with a reporter, then curtailed the conversation. Her father, José Segundo Álvarez Yupa, a construction worker, said it was too difficult to discuss. “These are private matters,” he said. “This is a very painful thing. It’s all over. We want to recover, we want to move on.” [ Reply | More ]

Np: the best thing you can do is get some help now. You are young and college is a very stressful time but it's also a great environment in which to learn and practice ways to manage anxiety. A therapist can suggest coping strategies that you'll be able to use during other stressful times in your life. [ Reply | More ]

We just got back to our hotel from an OTT Easter at a home to die for. All the kids in attendance (guessing 75% family kids 25% kids of guests) did an easter egg hunt where every single kid got a customized build-a-bear with clothes with their initials embroidered as well as a REALLY NICE "tote bag" ("which is to go to mom after you take all the stuff back out" hahahaha). The stuff they planted around their property was UNREAL. All the labeled stuff was easily $1K per child. I don't know about the unlabeled stuff (like polished granite eggs from Natural History museum?) or candy. It was actually a lovely afternoon but just sharing. [ Reply | More ]
