Not too long ago, I was writing here to describe my struggle in deciding whether I should continue living in Thailand. It was a place I was very attached to, with it's unique environment, full of different colors, sounds, sights and tastes. A place where people were kind and…Continue
Just kidding, riding a horse is not at all like riding a bike. I went out with my friend Aly to York, PA to ride on a horse for the very first time.
Horses can be so therapeutic as I found out Saturday night. Instead of getting ready for finals I decided to go with my friend to her hometown. I figured I would have fun as I been working on a 30 page final for the last 2 1/2 weeks.
I know I will regret it coming tomorrow morning. Whatever the case, I went and I had such a…Continue
This afternoon the internet blew up after it was found out that Disney had filed an application to trademark 'Dia de Los Muertos. A trademark would allow Disney to put the phrase "Dia de Los Muertos" on everything from clothing to toys.
Dia de Los Muertos has recently become very popular here in the United States. Online you can find examples of 'artsy' pictures of women dressed up in skull makeup for fashion photoshoots, or during Halloween you see pictures of sorority girls in…Continue
These are my ESL students I tutor for at Wilson College. Irvin and Lizbeth. It's amazing how much they loved to see their rocks like I promised them. Irvin and Lizbeth gave me the biggests smiles ever.I love coming to class to help them read in English, although I tend to find it really difficult that neither can write or…Continue
With news reporters watching, news station cameras rolling, and people passing by, I felt the power of our crowd. I might have been standing among one-hundred and nineteen other students, but this was different from standing in my own high school junior class. Our crowd was standing in front of the Sacramento Capitol building and even with the vast differences in hometowns and high schools, I felt connected like…Continue
Hey everyone, today is my last day as a Latinitas intern!
It's been a pleasure creating content for you! I really hope my posts have been interesting for you. I tried to vary my topics to keep you interested! Latinitas has been a great experience for me. I'm graduating college with a degree in journalism. I've been reporting for a couple of years now. This was my first internship, though. I learned about being a self-starter and pacing myself according to my schedule.
This weekend is better, for lack of a better word, even though the amount of work left to do seems almost insurmountable. (I have a 30 page paper due by tomorrow evening and I only have five pages complete.) Gosh darnit, I needed a break. So, I was pretty glad that yesterday was Wilson Colleges' first annual Labyrinth Project.
For those of you who may not know, a labyrinth is like a maze, but unlike a maze it is designed to help you find yourself. So, when the oppurtunity to walk…Continue
I watched a movie called "The Call". (don't read this paragraph if you're interested in seeing the movie, it has spoilers). SPOILER ALERT! Anyways, and it mainly focuses on a girl (Abigail Breslin) who has been kidnapped by a serial killer and has a cell phone with her and is constantly calling the same 911 operator (Halle Berry). Throughout the movie, Berry gives Breslin tips and techniques to try and be saved (the phone the girl has doesn't have GPS and they cannot find her location).…Continue
I am currently writing to you from the undergraduate (also happens to be UNDERground) quiet study room at Van Pelt Library. VP has been my home since last wednesday when readings days began. I won't talk about the stress, sleepless nights (although I did see the sunrise for the first time) and stacked coffee cups because anyone who has ever studied for a final already knows the drill but, I do want to share with you three…Continue
This spring semester has been a marvelous and exhilarating experience for me so far. I currently attend Santa Monica College, an institution of higher education whose environment has nurtured my intellectual curiosity well.
I am a political science major with a strong interest in economics and sociology. I am currently working on earning a degree in public policy. My public policy course this semester has helped me understand eight models that are used when formulating and evaluating…Continue
