Treating Yourself

Posted by Ingrid Vasquez on April 21, 2014 at 10:35am 0 Comments

Whenever you are about to have a difficult couple of days, it is important to get yourself mentally ready. That means, whether it may be treating yourself to a work out every week or treating yourself to your favorite snack, you need to do whatever it may be to get yourself ready.

One of the things I love to do is get my nails done. So in order to get ready for the next two weeks, I just got my nails done. And let me tell you everyone, it was amazing!

I need a manicure and a…

Since I am so determined to be a double major, I realized that I have to take summer classes (...Dang!)



But it's okay because in the end it would be worth it right? Of course!



Life will always be hard, but in the end, hard work and determination will take you a long…

Get Rid Of That Green-Eyed Monster!

Posted by Megan Garcia on April 22, 2014 at 2:35pm 1 Comment

Have you ever felt that ugly emotion called jealousy (a.k.a. “The Green-Eyed Monster”)? Unfortunately, most of us have.  BUT, do not feel too bad, because this is completely normal.

 

Have you felt it towards your girlfriends, siblings, or anyone else? Well, we all feel jealousy, but for different reasons. However, you do not want envy to get the best of you because you are better than that!

 

Envy is a terrible thing to feel and have. So, get…

Honesty IS the best policy

Posted by Ingrid Vasquez on April 15, 2014 at 10:45pm 0 Comments

Today I lost my newest pair of headphones. And let me tell you, that was so frustrating. 

You see, I am the worst person with headphones. I will never go anywhere without my headphones. I love mus and believe it truly is a soundtrack to life. So, I usually don't lose my headphones. What does happen though is that they typically do mess up after a while since I store them in all types of places, fall asleep with them on, etc. 

And so today when I lost my headphones I was…

How do YOU keep organized?

Posted by Ingrid Vasquez on April 13, 2014 at 5:34pm 0 Comments

Hi Latinitas!

Even though I find myself constantly attached to my planner, I find myself forgetting certain things I had planned from time to time. For example, it might forget to write an assignment down and then I find myself extremely angry since I know I am usually really good at organizing stuff but just had one assignment slip my mind.

Therefore, what are other ways you keep organized?

Here are some of the things I have heard my friends do instead of/ in addition…

College 101: With Freedom Comes Responsibility

Posted by Nina Bonita Santillan on April 13, 2014 at 9:26pm 1 Comment

Leaving high school and the environment and people you’re most familiar with can be both exciting and devastating. Leaving high school and moving on the college doesn’t only mean leaving your parents’ supervision, it means taking on responsibilities that you may not have ever thought about when you thought of leaving to college. 

More than likely, to all those getting ready to leave to college this coming fall, have thought about how you’ll have so much more…

My Ring Day!

Posted by Nina Bonita Santillan on April 12, 2014 at 12:27pm 0 Comments

When I first arrived to Texas A&M University, my freshman year, the day I would receive my Aggie ring seemed so unreal. It felt so far away and now, three years later, I have finally earned it after so many years of hard work. My family came to celebrate my accomplishments with me. Even though this isn’t exactly my graduation day, I still feel so accomplished and that after all the tears, all-nighters, and foreign professors who barely know how to speak English, it has finally paid…

Dealing with a Motherly Loss

Posted by Polet Espinoza on April 9, 2014 at 2:30pm 1 Comment

On Sunday, I went out with a friend to eat dinner, we were laughing, sharing stories, and having a good time. While we were trading stories, I found out that her mother had passed away. She told me like nothing had happened. She didn't give it much importance, but the way I saw it was that I couldn't even imagine going through that, I am so happy and blessed to still have my mother with me. I couldn't think of what I would do if she weren't.…

Easter Snack

Posted by Vanessa Aguirre on April 10, 2014 at 11:30am 1 Comment

So Easter is coming up and I found a cute snack! These bites are really easy to make, taste good (in my opinion), and look elegantly simple. They look pretty enough for a party and are easy enough to make for a quick snack.

These are crackers topped with strawberry yogurt and halved strawberry slices, but…

What's On My Horizon

Hey y'all! It's been a while since I've posted. These last few weeks have been stressful. As a graduating senior, I not only have finals and graduation itself on my mind but the future as well.I feel as if for the last few years I've simply been floating by while my peers have been rushing around with internships, grad school ideas, and jobs. I feel like I'm so far behind compared to all of them! And I know, I should not compare myself to them but it is a little hard now that I have to really…See More

When it rains, it pours

The month of April has been nothing short of being a huge pain in the butt.Pain #1: I caught a cold and could've sworn a trip to the emergency room was in the horizon. You know something is horribly wrong when you take a cold shower … with only the cold water on…. and you become frustrated because it's not cold enough. The good news is that I can partially breathe now, but I still sound like Darth Vader. Lecturing as Darth Vader is not…See More
