It is official I have been living in Los Angeles for over a year now! It is crazy to think that I came out here with this crazy idea of how it would be in this city of stars and to be honest it isn't all that great. Don't get me wrong I do love living here and I have been fortunate enough to come across amazing people that have presented great opportunities for me. However, as many great people I have met I have met 10 times amount of…Continue

Today I remembered that April is National Poetry Month and found myself revisiting some of my favorite poems. Most of them I have discovered through my English and Spanish literature classes. I love reading poems in class and interpreting them and learning about the author. It helps me understand the poem a lot better and becomes more enjoyable to read.
National Poetry Month was established by Academy of American Poets in 1996 to promote poetry and poems and so that…Continue

I woke up in a very happy mood today. I do not know why but I felt refreshed and ready to start the day. I am also excited since it's the start of a brand new month and a month that I get to be with my family for their birthdays. I haven't been home in a few years during the month of April when my mom and dad celebrate their bdays so I'm happy that I will this year and I am excited to spend time with them. My brother's birthday is in the beginning of May so I'll get to spend it with…Continue

Last Friday, Marisol and I decided to go a work in progress film screening, "Cesar's Last Fast" by filmmaker Richard Ray Perez at Mercado Mayapan. an indoor Mexican market,
The film has…Continue

Can you sing, dance, play an instrument, share a story, crack jokes or recite a poem? Well if you can and you're not too shy, then I highly encourage you to perform at an open mic.
Open mics are perfect opportunities for artistically talented individuals (like you, I'm sure you are) to showcase their wonderful abilities.
I went to an monthly open mic at a coffee shop in downtown El Paso and it is always a lot of fun. Now I have to admit, I have never…Continue

In the midst of the hectic life that I have, I try to squeeze in time to do some enjoyable things. On Tuesday, I checked out Pride and Prejudice (the movie) at the library. One of my absolutely favorite actors (Colin Firth) plays the main male character and I've been wanting to watch it for a long time. I fell in love with Firth during college. My roommate had the Diary of Bridget Jones movie and we decided to watch it. I loved the movie! And I loved Mark Darcy (Firth) in the movie.…Continue
March is Women's History Month in the U.S. During the month, various events like conferences, marches and rallies take place in order to celebrate women's achivements, address women's ongoing struggles and honor women all over the world.
At UTEP (the University of Texas in El Paso) a women's conference was held today to discuss women's triumphs, issues and activitism.. Some of the topics (that I might say were extremely interesting) were

This Spring Break week was fantastic for me. I spent four days in Padre Island, Tx where some of the more nicer beaches in texas are located. I decided to take the trip to take some time off from the same routine I go through during my usual weeks. School, work, school, work, homework, school, we all know the routine that our lives can bring us into and one day you just get tired of it. During my beach time, I thought a lot about how beautiful our oceans, animals, and how lucky we are…Continue
