Yesterday I watched The Motorcycle Diaries or Diarios de Motocicleta with a friend. I had already watched it before a few years ago and I really liked it. My friend had never seen it and I thought he would like it we watched it.
I remember when I watched it the first time. I heard about it from a friend. He had been moved by the film and well I was interested. The movie is based on the memoirs of Ernesto "Che" Guevara. Che and his friend are young adventure seeking…Continue

On Friday night my friends and I decided to go to a party that's held on the first Friday of every month. They have different bands and DJs playing. They sell arts and crafts from the community including jewelry, T-shirts, posters, etc. They have local publications available for free and there was even a booth that sold treats like chocolate and candy from different parts of the world like India and Japan.
It is usually a lot of fun to go to these parties. It's a…Continue

Just in case you didn't think it was winter, mother nature came around to demostrate the power of freezing temperatures.
My friend from Chicago, braced for the winter storm of the year calling it snowpocalypse!
I live in Texas, which is pretty far from Illinois, but I still had to prepare for this huge storm that has halted city life.
In El Paso, it is Day 3 of schools being closed down. Rolling blackouts are part of my life now. Since Wednesday, 7 of the 8…Continue

Google. Most people that I know, know of this infamous search engine. Lots of different search queries pop up as a list below what you've typed, as you begin your search in hopes of finding an answer to your question. Moments ago, I typed into Google's search bar, 'girls dealing with' and the first query that was listed beneath my search-to-be was 'girls dealing with bullies.' No surprise there.
This query inspired me to write this post, hopefully the first of many to come. So why do…Continue

Yesterday I used skype for the first time ever!
Yes, I know, I know, I'm a late bloomer. I know skype has been around for a while. My friend actually used to use skype years ago on my computer to talk to her boyfriend in Germany. But I never got around to learning how to use it.
I got my own skype a few months ago. I have friends that live in all different parts of the country and world. I thought it'd be a nice way to connect. I never actually figured it out though. I'm not…Continue

"If you have food in your refrigerator,
clothes on your back, a roof over
your head and a place to sleep,
you are richer than 75% of this world."
My friend posted on Facebook this quote that she got from tumblr, I think. And it really made me think how fortunate we are. Sometimes we stress over so many little problems that we don't stop to look at how lucky we are. It's important to count our blessings and strive to help people that are less…Continue
I don't know if you know who Cesar Chavez is but he is a very important figure to a lot of people that have been marginalized and oppressed. Chavez fought for migrant farm worker rights when no one cared about them. Been an farm worker himself, he knew of the long hard hours spent in the field with very little pay. He saw how farm workers were being treated unfair and in he knew it was not right. Though he lacked education (He had to drop out in 7th grade to help his family out and…Continue

Last December my father showed me an column in a newspaper where I live where a young professional woman was appalled at the use of "mi'ja" in a professional environment. As some of us might know, "mi'ja" is an endearment term that literally translates to "my daughter." In her article, the young woman complained that many coworkers who are older than her had called her "mi'ja" which she found demeaning.
I really didn't think much of the topic and even told my dad that I…Continue

Last night I had the opportunity to catch a glimpse of The State of the Union Address, where the U.S. president annually addresses Congress about the condition of the nation and outlines and priorities issues on the legislative agenda for the year. I starting watching when he was speaking about the importance of education. He spoke about how teachers are some of the most influential people in our nation. They shape our minds and they have the ability to not just teach but inspire a…Continue
