Camp (mis)adventures

First, I apologize for leaving my blog stagnant for so long. I've really enjoyed the summer and pretty much thrown all of my cares to the wind, which is kind of a problem.I guess I will fill y'all in with my camp (mis)adventures. Have you ever felt super unfit in a social setting? I usually mesh well with new people, but while I was at camp it was painfully obvious that I was the only Latina and that I came from a completely different economic bracket than those around me. I don't think race or…See More

"Mariah, I've felt that way, too. I attend a university where I'm part of a very obvious minority and it feels weird. Every day I feel like there's something to prove and I have to push myself to win at these standards I didn't…"

"This was a great blog post! I did something similar in January and it can be really scary cutting your hair so short. I miss my long hair all the time. My profile picture is still me with long hair even though my hair is much shorter now. As scary…"

"I use to hear it too. I like it, because if I hear it once I will have it in my head for all the weekend until I hear it again. It is a very cheerful song and gives you a positive feeling. "

Sometimes, when I feel down I just dance to Waka Waka and Shakira reassures me I can do it. My favorite line is "Y la presión se siente, espera en ti, tu gente" It reminds me that even when I don't, someone believes in me.

"Marlett, I have the opposite problem. Spanish is my second language and I am more embarrassed that my accent isn't as strong, so I don't speak it as often. From my personal experience, I would advise embracing both languages. It gives you…"

Quotes to quote

Romans 1:12 That is that you and I
may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith.


Colossians 2:2 My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heartand united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding,
in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ.


Philippians 3:8 Indeed, I count everything as loss
because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.
For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish,
in order that I may gain Christ


Carry out a random act of kindness,
with no expectation of reward,
safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.
- Princess Diana

Summer Camp

Posted on May 22, 2012 at 9:00am 1 Comment

Besides church camp, I've never gone to an actual camp. 

Starting Sunday, however, I will be in charge of my own crew of campers for the next three weeks. I'm nervous to say the least.

In an age of iPads, smart phones and wireless internet, I'm not sure I'll be able to tear myself away from life as I know it and succumb to life in the outdoors.

If being completely disconnected from the real world wasn't enough, I will know one other person there. ONE.

I'd likely…

It's not too soon or too late to apply for scholarships

Growing up, I was never aware of my family's financial struggles. I can honestly say I was never in want, but then again my parent's never allowed us to be dissatisfied. We weren't allowed to complain about eating leftovers, hand-me-down clothes or opting for the generic brand over our "pricey" favorites. For me, every American family lived this way. This was normal.

Looking back, I don't think I grew up disadvantaged or poor, but rather blessed. I don't remember times being hard.…

Cinco de Mayo

Posted on May 5, 2012 at 10:00am 0 Comments

As a Texas girl, I grew up engulfed in the TexMex culture. Good Mexican food was always easy to find, there were at least 20 different Spanish stations on the local radio and my perception of Mexico was just slightly skewed. It wasn’t until I was much older when I realized Cinco de Mayo wasn’t a giant fiesta in Mexico and contrary to popular belief it wasn’t Mexican Independence day (Sept. 16, 1821)

For those of you who don’t speak Spanish, Cinco de Mayo means the 5th of…
