Please, don't do things for attention

Posted by April C. Davila on May 7, 2015 at 2:12pm 0 Comments

Just ranting...

Romanticizing mental illnesses, anorexia, abusive relationships, seriously, what is up with that? Suicide is not beautiful, scars are not pretty, mental disorders really aren't that special, in fact, they are more of a hassle to maintain. Being a "weirdo" seems now is a way for the younger crowd to generate some sort of status, "I'm pretty, I think, but I am broken in the inside and therefore everyone should be trying to get to know me and my…

DIY projects!

Posted by Alyssa Downey on May 10, 2015 at 8:58pm 0 Comments

I know it might be finals for some of us, but I have some really great DIY (do it yourself) projects that you can try once you ace those exams to help get into the feeling of summer! Lately, I've been obsessing over Pinterest, and have fallen in love with all of the DIY projects people post. So I expanded my search to Youtube and found some really cost-efficient projects that you and your friends/family can do during the next few summer months. The link I'm…

Why My Mom Is Special To Me

Posted by Jackeline on May 18, 2015 at 1:01pm 0 Comments

 The most influential person in my life is definitely my mother. Growing up she always set an example of independence and what it meant to do things on her own without a husband. I remember seeing her come home from work when I was young and although very tired, she would kick off her heels and join me on the couch to watch movies and catch up on how our day went. She made me believe that everything was possible, a great mother and she had a career. I remember daydreaming of the day that i…


Mental Health Development: Get Done with the Stress

Posted by Ariadne Venegas on May 18, 2015 at 1:08pm 0 Comments

       Stress can become a major problem for any teen that has its battles with school activities, clases, exams and homework. Most of the time affects our sleeping habits and even provokes on us an eating disorder, where our diet changes completely and sometimes we even skip some important meals. …


How I Deal With Stress

Posted by Jackeline on May 18, 2015 at 1:17pm 0 Comments

I am no stranger to stress or having the feeling that I have "bitten off more than I can chew." I have to work at least 25 hours a week as well as continue to go to school full time. I like most college students work in an environment where customer service is essential. Working at a bingo hall, I often deal with people that have a gambling addiction and are known to get rowdy even if the best customer service is being offered. When I started working there I used to take rude comments to…


Cinco de Mayo

Posted by Vanessa Ramirez on May 5, 2015 at 2:30pm 0 Comments

Cinco de mayo is known as the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla. The battle was in 1862 when a small outnumbered Mexican army defeated the French . It is also celebrated in Mexico , the way Mexicans celebrate it is by having parades, eating Mexican food and stuff like that. I really don't celebrate Cinco de Mayo because it is not an American holiday or I don't know much about it. Many people outside of Mexico confuse it with a celebration of Mexican independence but that one is celebrated…
