Supreme Court Ruling and the Legalization of Same-Sex Marriage

Posted by Zaira Lujan on June 30, 2015 at 1:30am 0 Comments

        On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage across the nation, making this a historic victory in the gay rights movement. Before this decision was made, 37 out of 50 states (and the District of Colombia) had already extended this right to same-sex couples over the course of the years. With Massachusetts becoming the first state in the United States to allow same-sex marriage in 2004, many…

The 6 Pillars on Becoming a Better Person :)

Posted by Alyssa Downey on June 26, 2015 at 11:52am 1 Comment

Character. We all have one. Some may have a good one, while others... not so much. Based on the recent statements made by Donald Trump, his character lacks some major qualities, while Oprah has a character made of gold and free gifts. 

But what exactly IS character?

According to whatwillmatter.com, it is "a morally neutral term describing the nature of a person in terms of major qualities." How you acquire these qualities depends on how you deal with…

What do you think about Latina stereotypes?

Posted by Latinitas Intern on June 23, 2015 at 4:03pm 0 Comments

Latinitas speak out against stereotypes. 

What stereotypes do you see about Latinas?

They are crazy.

They all speak Spanish

They are sexy

They are better off as a maid and will never become successful in life

They are good only at cooking

They are always angry

They are supposed to stay in the house and cook/clean

They are smart girls, always focused on what they want.

 

What does Latina…

My Reaction to Donald Trump Presidential Announcement

Posted by Zaira Lujan on June 22, 2015 at 2:19am 0 Comments

Having watched the fifty plus minutes of Trump’s Speech, I was shocked to what he had to say.

Below are some of the key quotes that shocked me the most:

-“The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everyone else problems… when Mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best. They are not sending you. They are not sending you. They are sending people that have lots of problems and they are bringing those problems with us. They are bringing drugs, they are brining crime,…

Father's Day

Posted by Celeste Ledesma on June 21, 2015 at 1:02am 0 Comments

Of course, this is a girl’s space, but it is also Father’s Day, so let’s take this time to talk about dads...not just dads though, how ‘bout any wise male figures in our lives who have impacted our lives for the better. Maybe he is someone who is always there to make you laugh when you need it most. Maybe he is not the best listener but will always try to hear you out. Maybe he is that person who had faith in you even when you didn’t have faith in yourself. No matter what’s…

Ironic Complaint

Posted by Ariana Ortega on June 17, 2015 at 12:44pm 1 Comment

I've come to realize that as a generation we complain so much! We complain about the weather being too hot or too cold,even about WiFi signal being too low! From paper cuts, slow drivers and even about a bird pooping on your windshield. The list of everyday complaints goes on and on...and honestly we complain about things we CAN'T control. Probably because we can't control them. Most of the time it causes a ripple of complaints from one person to the next like a contagious virus. Go ahead and… Continue

Rugby

Posted by Zaira Lujan on June 15, 2015 at 10:34pm 0 Comments

I crouched down and squared my shoulders as I looked at the girl who was twenty yards across from me. I adjusted my footing in the mud as I prepared to launch myself in the cold air. Lined up and ready for the initiation of the play, we stood motionless until the ball was kicked by an opposing player to our side of the field. In the blink of an eye, both teams ran towards the flying oval object.  I looked up just in time to see our fly-half running with her hands extended, ready to snatch…

Self- Esteem Tips

Posted by Vanessa Ramirez on June 15, 2015 at 1:39pm 0 Comments

To have a great amount of self-Esteem wake up in the morning and know you are beautiful.

Don't read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

Your beautiful in your own way, God made you like that.  

Don't let stereotypes define who you are.

Be you, because no one else can.

It doesn't matter how you look, what matters is who you choose to be.

Love yourself , realize that no one is perfect.

Express who you are, don't let anyone tell…

My response to Donald Trump

I can't think in anything worst than Donald Trump. I feel like we are going back to the 50's or 60's were the segregation was though and I feel that with him on power we are going to be worst than other decades. Instead of looking for a solution that will benefit both countries he just wants us to extinct so he can live happily ever after. Does this mean that, by him getting into the presidency will all the immigrants be hunted? I think that immigrants have played a very important role in the…See More
