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…Continue
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…
About two weeks ago, I had the chance to attend to the Wise Latina Conference with Several guest speakers. These wonderful ladies are writers, producers, and directors. Nancy De Los Santos and Denisse Chavez.
Nancy De Los Santos was one of the producers in the famous film "Selena" she had the pleasure of working with Jennifer Lopez and the Quintanilla family. She was also the first Latina to serve in the board of directors. It amazes me that someone this important with many…Continue
The second semester of my freshman year in college I stumbled upon a something incredible. You know that student ID that they make you take at Freshman Orientation? The one where you either look amazing or like a child? The one that you hide in your wallet and hope that no one ever asks to see it? Well, it’s time to start using it. Turns out you get crazy discounts at different stores and restaurants by flashing your student Id. I use it all the time and its really quite helpful because…Continue
The movie 13 wishes is an exciting movie and has beautiful moral. When Howleen finds a genie named Gigi, she has her at her command but when she didn’t know there was a bad side. Gigi’s shadow grows stronger every second she makes a selfish wish. Soon she made a horrible wish to be popular. Can the ghouls save her before Wisp takes over the monster world? ~Elizabeth
My favorite movie is Dear John. This is a romantic movie. Its about this brave…Continue
Latinitas share their favorite summer reading list...
My favorite book is Flora and Ulysess. It is about a squirrel and a girl. Flora’s mom was vacuuming because she got vacuum. It is by Kate Dicamillo. A squirrel got sucked into the vacuum. Flora saved the squirrel. They lived together for a long time. ~Crystal
The book Walls Between Walls is an amazing book full of adventure. When a family moves to New York and finds an eye behind the wall they find out there…Continue
During the summer we tend to pack on weight because in reality, all we tend to do is sit on our butts all day, eating, watching television, or going out and eating at fast food restaurants. Ladies.. let us go against that norm! Especially if you are a college student. It is said that as a Freshman you gain the "freshman 15." The "freshman 15" is the theory that as a college student you are bound to gain weight. Sadly, the theory does apply to most students.
You might be asking…Continue
Based on my understanding of music and its effects is that it speaks to anyone in its own manner. This is probably the reason many of us choose to single ourselves out, unknowingly of course, by putting those ear buds/phones, or phones in our ears.
It's like every one of us wants to channel our feelings within our song, by our lonesome selves. This can be done while waiting for a bus and letting our eyes wander to the others who may want to sit on the bench, but you are too stubborn,…Continue
If you aren’t actively involved in something during the awesome down time that is summer, it can get pretty boring. Even those lucky enough to score a job, internship, volunteer work, etc., can have some days where we simply have nothing to do. Those days can be fun if you like laying back and vegetating for a while, but even that gets tiresome. Or, if you’re anything like me, down time is hard to enjoy because I simply can’t sit still…Continue
In highschool, I thought very highly of myself for staying up until 2 or 3 a.m. I imagined I was getting in some practice before college, and I was thrilled at the idea that I was preparing myself for an exciting and fun-filled life ahead. This became a half truth in college. Yes, I am staying up late and this time it is past 3 a.m. on a regular basis, and yes it is…Continue
