"I love this! I love girl power! I am so proud of you because you understand the difference between a FEMINIST and a MISANDRY. (man hater) People now a days don' seem to understand that feminist just want equality in what we do and where we go.…"

"Agreed. I was tragically out of out touch with my emotions growing up. Life would have been SO much more uplifting if "younger me" had known this stuff. "

My Motherly sHERO

I realize that saying my mother is my sHERO is probably something that's very overused, but I can't help myself. While I find many women heroic, my mother is the only person that I can say is a true hero, in my opinion. And that's not to say that other people's mothers aren't heroic either, I'm sure they are. But my mom, my goodness, she's a wonder. Aside from her general perfection as a mother, of course, one of the first things I remember thinking was great about my mom was the fact that she…See More

Experiencing South by Southwest (SxSW)

I got the amazing chance to visit SxSW for two days and I am still in awe and dying to go back to it. For the past four years (which are all of the years I've been at Texas State University and in Central Texas), I have been dying to go to SxSW. Sadly, the passes and badges are nowhere within my budget, so I just watched videos and read tweets from afar. Thanks to my internship with Latinitas, that wish was fulfilled and I get to tell all of…See More

Gissel: First Female President

Posted on March 27, 2015 at 9:27pm 0 Comments

Being the first female president just sounds so crazy! I've never considered myself as a person who could become a president -- I can be pretty shy at times -- but being the first female president would be such an honor! 

Of course, I automatically want to say that I'd solve all the problems as president, but that's so hard to do, even within four years. There are always new problems coming up, so fixing every problem is near impossible. So to dial it down a bit, I'll…

Dear younger me (and all younger girls),

Posted on March 25, 2015 at 8:16pm 1 Comment

Remember that it's okay to feel things. It's the one thing I wish I knew when I was growing up. Even to this day, at 21 years old, I forget that feeling emotions is okay. So try not to ever forget that.

If you're sad because of a loss in the family or sad because a member of your favorite boy band quit, it's okay. You have every right to feel any and all emotions that you feel. Don't ever let anyone else tell you otherwise.

And it's best to ignore when anyone…

Pros/Cons of Being A Girl

Posted on March 24, 2015 at 9:23pm 0 Comments

"Just because I'm a girl..." is something I saw a lot before coming to write this, and that kind of made my decision of whether or not I'm going to write the pros of cons of being a female. Seeing those five words angered me a little, because we, girls, shouldn't have to feel the need to defend ourselves as girls; females should get the respect they deserve. And so, this is my rant/blog about the cons of being a female. 

I've had a lot of people, both men and women, assume I…
