As the sorcerer lifts the gentle ballerina up he also brings her down
Every chance she has of escaping his grip, he pulls her back in
A terrible shame and embarrassment follows her like a shadow
She is now a broken toy mangled in his presence
Instead of putting her back together or throwing her away,
He merely keeps her on a shelf isolated and without hope…Continue

Okay, let me start off by saying I like Eva Longoria. I respect her as an actress and as a co-producer. I think she really needs to re-think what she's really doing before waving her proud Chicana flag and patting herself on the back for having four leading actresses that are Latina women of great acting standards. I mean, it is really amazing that it took someone this long to have a show centered around Latina's lives. If anything I agree with Eva Longoria and her beliefs that more…Continue
One of the most empowering experiences I ever had is being part of a community where people in the community can share their experiences. I’ve learned that by sharing our personal stories with one another can build strong relationships, and this helps build strong, connected communities. When we share our personal experiences, we learn of how we exist in this world, and when we share these personal stories in a group, we connect these individual experiences to the…Continue

Ok college chicas we all know what's lingering around the corner, the dreaded finals weeks! Personally I don't think I have been through a more stressful time in my life! Late nights, nerves and a whole lot of caffeine! One thing I have noticed though is that my healthy eating habits go out the window during finals week. My diet mostly consists of coffee, snickers, hot cheetos and a bunch of other things I am too ashamed to mention!…Continue
Q: I want to go to the movies with my friends, but my mom says no. How do I convince her to let me go?
A: Well first, ask your mom why she does not want you to go. Have you done anything recently that has upset her? Talk to her about it if so. To ensure that you get to go, talk to your mom about the importance of going out with your friends to the movies. Talk about how big the movie is and how you just need some time with your friends.
Q: How do I survive high school…Continue

Q: I’m going out with someone and they are pressuring me to do some things I’m not ready should I listen and do it?
A: Well first off, pressure is never a good sign. It all depends on how long you've been with the person. If it's only been a short time and they are pressuring you, then that's a very bad thing. If it's been a while and they are starting to pressure you, that is also bad. You should not listen to them because they do not own you. You have your own mind and have the…Continue

It's super poor quality, but I can't seem to find a good quality video of the scene. I've been listening to the song non-stop since Monday. I'm a fan of Glee, but it's been getting on my nerves lately. Is it just me or do they sound more autotuned each episode?
The song from the video:…

AUSTIN, TX - According to mainstream press, the “sleeping giant,” Latinos, are awakening, inspiring the first Time magazine cover in Spanish. But, despite such validating nods, mainstream television and film are slow to inclusivity. Desperate Housewives’ creator Marc Cherry was asked to adapt a telenovela for American television and disregarding decades of Latinas being pigeonholed into roles of servitude in film and TV, Cherry chose “Devious Maids,” as his vehicle,…Continue

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if one day a Latin@ did something to harm this nation and as a result YOU were seen as a threat or an enemy to this country? I attended an educational workshop titled “…Continue

Have you ever been in love? I have. The feeling was so great, I never wanted it to end. There were days when I was sure I wanted to be with him forever. My parents worried a little bit, concerned that I might want to get married when I hadn’t even graduated from college, but I figured it was alright. Most of my friends from Mexico had long term relationships of at least two years and they were already planning on marriage too. At that time I had been living in Texas for two years, and had…Continue
