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…
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…Continue

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…Continue
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.

Many people outside of Mexico confuse it with a celebration of Mexican independence but that one is celebrated…Continue
