"I love your ending; "the real work is actually just life." Yes, that's exactly what it is and I guess we shouldn't fear "the real world" because we're already living in it!"

The Real World's Definition

The use of the term "The Real World" is thrown around like if it were candy. My memory goes as far back as my 8th grade graduation when people were asking me if I was ready to enter the last chapter of my life before going into the “real world”—high school. What exactly is this “real world” you talk about? The cap and gown hanging in my closet during my senior year told me graduation would open the door to a new world with many responsibilities. My peers and I would face new obstacles—alright--…See More

5 Superstitions I Believe In

You can say superstitions fill the empty holes in my life. It's just fun to have a reason behind random habits I maintain.Maybe all of this started when I was a little girl and my mother would say, "don't do that, because then this will happen." And mamá is never wrong! In addition to the occasional "limpia de huevo" (egg-cleansing) and touching things I've stared at to avoid "ojo", my dedication to superstitions continues to grow as a young adult in college. Sometimes I think about accepting…See More

"I must admit that sometimes I see a cute shirt that resembles a Mexican pattern and I am attracted to it although I know it isn't authentic. However, I agree with you and it makes me upset that Latinos are constantly seen as a problem in the…"

Teenage Angst at 21

Posted on February 20, 2013 at 5:30pm 2 Comments

I successfully survived the horror years of teenage hormones about about seven years ago. It was always my goal throughout my teens to be Ms. Mature and I always tried to be the better person or stay away from situations that I knew would bring trouble. I find myself today as a 21-year-old college lady that stands alone on a campus full of diversity, a sea of people who have lived and learned from past experiences."That's just the way things are," is often the feedback I receive when I…
