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 0 Comments

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…

Communicating in a team

Posted by Ingrid Vasquez on April 11, 2014 at 9:41am 0 Comments

Have you ever had to work in a team? Have you ever had issues come up while working in a team?

If you answered yes to any of these questions,don't feel bad. It's OK. Sometimes issues will arise from working in a team and it does not mean anything bad. It just means that you need to make sure you understand how to communicate effectively in a team and use this skill to raise your concerns to your other team members.

Are you shy like me? If so, I understand this might seem like…

Keep Records of EVERYTHING

Posted by Nancy Jessenia Gomez on March 30, 2014 at 11:32pm 0 Comments

Now that I am graduating, it is always amazing to reflect on where you were before you started any big journey. And, since Middle School I always kept a journal or notebook where I wrote down big events. I also love taking pictures to remember important moments in my life. Well, I am so SO grateful I did. Because going back and reading my fears and goals, has given me that motivation needed to finish the race strong. To be able to see how far that race really was, as well as to see all the…

My Motivating Talks to Myself

Posted by Polet Espinoza on April 8, 2014 at 6:00am 1 Comment

Every now and then I get those little motivating rages. For example, one day I'm thinking "Tomorrow morning, I'm going to wake up early, make myself breakfast, go exercise, get my laundry done, and read ahead for the next class". Then when I actually go to sleep and wake up the next morning I'm more like this "5 more minutes!" Recently, like 5 minutes ago, I had another one of those motivational moments I hope to keep, and it goes a little like…

On a rainy day ...

Posted by Ingrid Vasquez on April 6, 2014 at 12:12pm 0 Comments

I love the rain. I am the kind of person that enjoys watching the rain fall from the sky, and something really enjoy walking through the rain with an umbrella too. But sometimes, the rain can really stop you from doing plans you might have had or from going outside. So here are some tips on what you can do when it is raining outside .....

1. HOMEWORK - Yay! Homework! OK .... homework is not the most exciting thing to do, but it can be really exciting when you get ahead on your…

Stress Makes Me Wanna Clean

Posted by Nina Bonita Santillan on April 6, 2014 at 7:27pm 0 Comments

I don’t know if it’s just me or if anyone else goes through this, but when I get stressed and know that I have so many things to do in so little time I begin to want to clean my apartment. Every little mess bothers me which seems to be counterproductive. I have limited time to complete my assignments, yet unlike other times, I actually have an urge to want to dust my furniture, do laundry, vacuum, and other chores that most people naturally dread. Sometimes I think that the amount of…

Honesty IS the best policy

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 literally so sad. I have…See More
