Joining a group for the first time is always exciting and often stirs up the nerves living inside our bodies. It seems that being the "new girl" in any situation can bring out certain insecurities, no matter how welcoming the circumstance. Getting hired as an Editorial Intern for Latinitas, I felt all sorts of emotions and for the most part, they were all positive but I have to admit as I blog I can't help but wonder: do I really have anything worth saying?
You see, that's what is so…Continue
The Hollywood Reporter confirmed this morning that Jennifer Lopez, best known for her role as Selena, will act with Antonio Banderas in a movie titled 33. 33 is a depiction of the miners who were stuck underground for a gruesome number of days. I'm not trying to "hate," but last time I saw a good JLo movie was when she played Selena. Remind me again how long ago was…Continue
I have officially entered the blogosphere, and just using that word (blogosphere) should demonstrate my blogging experience to date -- none. Blogging has always been something that seemed like everyone around me was doing but that I would never be good at. But today is not only my first time blogging, it is also my first day on the job as a (trial) editorial intern with Latinitas (whaaat)!
One of the reasons I never blogged while all my peers seemed…Continue
I grew up in a family of five children, therefore competing for your parents’ affection was only expected. I can safely say that I was daddy’s little girl. I looked forward to the arrival of my dad every afternoon, because I loved running into his arms and have him hold me and give me a kiss. I look up to my dad so much, he was handsome, intelligent and a gentleman.…Continue
What did turning 15 mean to you?
Turning 15 to me was something very special. I felt much older of course, and made me realize I am no longer a little girl anymore, but a young woman. It is when I began to realize to appreciating things more and never take anything for granted, because after this age, time just flies!…
For those of us who celebrate the traditions of both American and Mexican cultures, it is expected for children to celebrate their mother not once, but twice a year. Mexico and other latin countries recognize May 10th as the official day to celebrate motherhood, while in the U.S and many other countries around the world, the date to remember falls every second Sunday in May. That's, twice the flowers for mom. This reminds me, Father's Day is coming up. When is it again? Is it this…Continue
June 16th. Third Sunday of June. What crosses your head when you hear that? Without having anyone to tell you something, do you know? Most people don't know what day Father's Day is celebrated in at the top of their head. Some just know because their family or friend probably asked them, "Hey what are you getting your dad for father's day?" What we don't realize most of the time is how important this holiday can really be. As much as your…Continue
Though he is not the ideal dad...and he has his flaws...he's made several mistakes...and will never be perfect...He will always be "My Dad"...and "I" will always be his daughter......
As I have gotten older my dad and I have in a way distanced apart. We no longer have the close relationship we once did. I…Continue
Have you ever felt guilty after eating a large piece of pizza? Do you ever obsess about your weight and count calories like there is no tomorrow because there is this fear that will not go away? Have you ever though it is healthy to starve yourself in order to fit into those size zero pants you saw at the store? If so, maybe you have an eating disorder or are in danger of developing one. Do not panic, know that you are not alone, and that you can get through it.
I have been…Continue
