Let me be content

Keep searching and asking, then acting. Don't think on the purpose too much and you'll find meaning.

EVEN if meaning, to you, goes beyond school intellect or a stationary, habitual work ethic. The road to finding yourself is a journey.



Before you know it, you'll be so consumed with you that he/she will be that blurry dot in your life.



That dot that was a speck.

That speck that  became a blob.

That blob that  became a figure.…

Being a leader & a volunteer

Posted by Guadalupe flores on July 29, 2014 at 7:22pm 0 Comments

 You would think volunteering might be a lot of work or boring but, honestly it's a lot of fun. Not only do you make small connection with the girls at camp, but you also meet the creative magical imagination of their brain. Also while the girls at camp are learning cool things, I am  learning fantastic things as well that I wish someone would have teach me or expose me at such a young age. I have learned how to edit a video, the…

The Sad Truth About Our Privacy

Posted by Juanita Rivera on July 20, 2014 at 10:30am 0 Comments

When was the last time you thoroughly read the "Terms and conditions"? No one? Anyone? Don't worry, I'm guilty, too. "They're so long" and "confusing," you're thinking. And that's intentional. Consequently by doing this we're giving our privacy away. The sad truth about privacy is that we have no privacy.

Do your research and soon you will find this out for yourself. The NSA has a surveillance program…

Dilemmas:To move or not to move

Posted by Claudia B. Mendoza on July 20, 2014 at 9:59pm 1 Comment

I am a sophomore at the University of Texas at El Paso.  As a 20 year old you would think I have more freedom than high school kids do but unfortunately that is not the case. My typical strict, Mexican mother watches my every move and gives me a curfew because I still live under her roof; her house...her rules.  I don't party and I don't do illegal things however she still tries her best to over protect me.  With a cut in my financial aid my hopes of moving out to the dorms have slowly…

Dear editors of magazines,

I think you should not Photoshop because we then the people that are reading the magazines we can't see what their real body/face looks like. I also think you should not Photoshop because some people that are in the magazines that think they look good and fancy but really they are not. I don't think you should Photoshop because some people like how they turned…

From a Latinita with a big dream to making it a reality

Posted by Karen Lopez on July 10, 2014 at 9:04am 1 Comment

Two years ago, I made the decision to accept an internship in Boston for the summer (All in previous blog posts). That decision changed my life for the better. After graduating from UTEP I moved to Boston to work for the non-profit that had given me the internship the year before. I am not going to lie to any of you and say it was easy. I cried so much the week before leaving that I was emotionally exhausted by the time I got on the plane to make the eight-hour flight to what I would call my…

Be Spontaneous and Travel Abroad!

Posted by Sara Eunice Martinez on July 1, 2014 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

Something that I have always dreamed of was to travel all over. I ended up traveling for the first time abroad last year and now I'm hooked!

Traveling abroad has changed me as a person because it made me feel more independent. Why?



Because first of all, trips are never free. I wanted…
