I have met quite a few veterans that I think are special to me. I would like to tell them thank you for reading to us, taking time out of your lives to spend time at our school events. Thank you very much for what you have done for us at our school. Thank you for keeping us safe and alive. Veterans day is a day when people show that they…


Austin City Limits - Remembering First...

Posted by Laura Donnelly on October 7, 2014 at 2:41pm 0 Comments

Before I can start sharing about this year's national music festival: Austin City Limits, two weekends of star-studded as well as new music on 5+ stages in sunny Austin, TX, I have to reflect on years' past and the wonderful Latino music acts that have showed through the decade.  My first encounter with ACL Fest was my first encounter with Amigos Invisibles, back in 2005.  The band that never stops playing brings nodes of disco, techno, Latin "gozada" rhythms - Venezuelan beats that evoke…


Too Blessed to be Stressed

Posted by Sylvia Butanda on October 10, 2014 at 9:21am 1 Comment

Everyone has bad days where it feels like your stress level has hit a new high where it makes you feel a new low. The bright side is that you'll always bounce back, stronger and more prepared. 

School, work, family, friends, etc. are all essential parts of our lives that sometimes make us stress out. The best thing to remember when you feel like you're on a short fuse is to breathe. It's as simple as it sounds. Be surrounded by calming sounds or a quiet area, close your eyes,…

Two Different Cultures

Posted by Imani Caban on October 30, 2014 at 6:47pm 1 Comment

While Mexicans and Puerto Ricans have many similarities, they also have many differences. I will be talking about those differences because I come from both Mexican and Puerto Rican backgrounds. Mexico and Puerto Rico are both very beautiful countries but their cultures are very different. Such as: the type of music they listen to, the food they eat, and how they talk.

Mexicans tend to listen to a type of music that they call "corridos". While many Puerto Ricans listen like to listen to… Continue

How I handle my stress

Posted by Selina Bonilla on October 13, 2014 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

I never use to get so stressed out until I came to college. The balancing act of school and a social life is possibly one of the most difficult things to do. When things start piling up on me, from multiple tests and papers due all in the same week, my reflex is to hide under my blanket until it's all over. Not the best way to handle stressful situations, so I've learned to do other things instead.

When I am studying during tests and I get overwhelmed and feel like I can't do it, I…


Your Invitation to the Sisterhood

“Women’s progress is human progress.” –Hillary Clinton

Trending this past month was the word “feminism” and what it means to be “feminist.” We were brought to tears when Emma Watson moved us with her #HeForShe campaign speech at the UN. Clapped out loud when Lena Dunham called out to women to join together instead of being pitted against each other. What is the use of the word “feminism” if we aren’t all standing together for it? Instead we are debating on…

Kenia Guerrero posted a blog post


Ayotzinapa, Guerrero, Mexico became a trending topic around the world, sadly it was because of an mistreated political issue. It wasn't more than a year ago that President Enrique Pena Nieto was in the cover of Time Magazine with the phrase "Saving Mexico". This belief didn't last long, specially now that the whole controversy is a public issue. Everything unleashed last September 26,2014 when 43 students from Ayotzinapa, Guerrero were kidnapped and taken in buses, and after it they were never…See More

Thanksgivivng Tradition

This Thanksgiving I am thankful for my family because they have been there for me and they motivate me to reach my goals. The way me and my family celebrate thanksgiving is that we get together and eat turkey, before we eat we first give thanks for something that we are thankful for. Also sometimes on previous years we have gone out of town to my aunt's house in Dallas and we spend time with her and my cousins. I think that it is important that this holiday we always gather as a family and…See More

Bill Cosby: We Shouldn't Be so Shocked

18 women have come forward to say Bill Cosby, American actor, comedian, producer, director, sexually assaulted them. He drugged and raped most of them.  Probably dozens, maybe more, were on the receiving end of his inappropriate sexual advances and many others are probably unable to come forward.  I am still shocked how media and the public have difficultly separating someone's public image with their personal life.  Wasn't it clear with Robin Williams' suicide that you could be one of the most…See More

Lindsey Pollan posted a blog post

Finally had my first club at Campbell Elementary today!

After several weeks of confusion, I have officially started my club! Though I only had 3 girls, we had an absolute blast. I could not believe how patient, eager to learn and sweet they were. We did a lesson about stereotypes and I really think it got through to the girls that not all women are equally represented in the magazines. We also squeezed in two photography lessons because there were so few of us and the girls did a great job with that as well!CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT WEEK! :D See More
