Letter to my 8 yr. self

Posted by April C. Davila on August 21, 2014 at 2:37pm 0 Comments

I see you. I see that you are hurting.

I’m sorry I didn’t better equip you with a stronger voice to tell others that you hurt.

You were taken advantage, but I am here to tell you, “it wasn’t your fault.”

You know this even as a young girl. You know this even though you are a prepubescent girl. You feel like you take too much space, the fact that you ate too much, felt confused over those nights and the possibility that things just never go as they plan i.e. guys,…

The Misconceptions of Depression

Posted by Juanita Rivera on August 19, 2014 at 10:30am 1 Comment

I’ve had depression for periods of time my entire life. That’s not to say that I’ve never had long moments of happiness, I have, but it’s always been fifty-fifty. There are different things that have triggered it, but the dominant reason was not being happy and satisfied with my state of life. I’ve never taken medication for it and I don't want to for the time being.…

For many of you all and my past self included, coming back to middle or high school is kind of a drag. But for college, the reality could not be more different. Not everyone might be as tentative to embrace the back to school energy as I was in my grade school years, so if you are excited, stay excited and this will…

NASA probes space sounds

Ever think that there is life in outer space?

Deep down, I think I've always figured we couldn't be the only living creatures floating in this galaxy.

The endless possibilities of life in space, is beyond what is depicted in cinema.

Get this, NASA's Voyager picked up many sounds in outer space, it is as followed:

Let me be content

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

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.…
