What is love? Baby don't hurt me

On my nine hour flight from Miami to Paris to visit my amorcito, I had A LOT of time for reflection. I giggled as I thought about all the slime balls and egomaniacs I dated in the past. It was a mental bloopers video. I couldn't help but laugh at all the mistakes that led me to where I am now, feeling my best in a healthy, positive relationship. But boy how my bloopers video goes on forever...You name the red flag, I ignored it. Unhealthy dynamics? Been there, done that.When I first started…See More

Savvy shopping, happy living!

            As the holidays approach, we are bombarded with ads about all the new and wonderful things we can buy. Marketers know how to appeal to our senses. We live in a society where we are taught that exchanging money for goods feels really, really great. Have you noticed how stores play cool music, use cute bags and packaging, and place unnecessary items right in your line of vision or at check out to make you consider buying what you were not intending? Did you really need that extra nail…See More

"Ethnicity is a realm whose boundaries are determined by dynamic processes of exclusivity and inclusivity. Race is a social construction-there is only one human race. "

Happiness is Hard Work!

Posted on October 22, 2013 at 5:26pm 1 Comment

   Growing up, mi mama would always tell me that only I can make myself happy. She would say "to be sad and upset is easy. To be happy is very constant, hard work." As a teenager prone to drama and mood swings, I was not always particularly good at following her advice.
