Please, don't do things for attention

Just ranting...

Romanticizing mental illnesses, anorexia, abusive relationships, seriously, what is up with that? Suicide is not beautiful, scars are not pretty, mental disorders really aren't that special, in fact, they are more of a hassle to maintain. Being a "weirdo" seems now is a way for the younger crowd to generate some sort of status, "I'm pretty, I think, but I am broken in the inside and therefore everyone should be trying to get to know me and my…

DIY projects!

I know it might be finals for some of us, but I have some really great DIY (do it yourself) projects that you can try once you ace those exams to help get into the feeling of summer! Lately, I've been obsessing over Pinterest, and have fallen in love with all of the DIY projects people post. So I expanded my search to Youtube and found some really cost-efficient projects that you and your friends/family can do during the next few summer months. The link I'm…

Why My Mom Is Special To Me

 The most influential person in my life is definitely my mother. Growing up she always set an example of independence and what it meant to do things on her own without a husband. I remember seeing her come home from work when I was young and although very tired, she would kick off her heels and join me on the couch to watch movies and catch up on how our day went. She made me believe that everything was possible, a great mother and she had a career. I remember daydreaming of the day that i…

Mental Health Development: Get Done with the Stress

       Stress can become a major problem for any teen that has its battles with school activities, clases, exams and homework. Most of the time affects our sleeping habits and even provokes on us an eating disorder, where our diet changes completely and sometimes we even skip some important meals. …

How I Deal With Stress

I am no stranger to stress or having the feeling that I have "bitten off more than I can chew." I have to work at least 25 hours a week as well as continue to go to school full time. I like most college students work in an environment where customer service is essential. Working at a bingo hall, I often deal with people that have a gambling addiction and are known to get rowdy even if the best customer service is being offered. When I started working there I used to take rude comments to…

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de mayo is known as the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla. The battle was in 1862 when a small outnumbered Mexican army defeated the French . It is also celebrated in Mexico , the way Mexicans celebrate it is by having parades, eating Mexican food and stuff like that. I really don't celebrate Cinco de Mayo because it is not an American holiday or I don't know much about it. Many people outside of Mexico confuse it with a celebration of Mexican independence but that one is celebrated…

What I Loved About College

The school year is winding down and moving closer and closer to my graduation from college. I spent the last four years at the University of Texas at Austin, and I have so much to be thankful for. It is weird to think that as I leave, a new wave of freshman will move in to take my space. But I know many exciting adventures wait for me in my future. And I am excited for the new students as well, because I know what kind of opportunities and life-changing experiences await them. Here are some…

School is almost over and the semester has gone by very quickly and finals are coming up.

My Favorite Teacher in college this semester

For me my favorite teacher in college that I had this semester is my education teacher because she has really been a good example of what a teacher should be. I want to be an elementary teacher, and I have learned many things from her on how we should involve parents in their child's education and why it is important that they keep helping their children with their education. Since the first day I knew that her class was going to be very interesting, well for me because I am learning…

Good reads!

I'm not too sure if anyone shares the same passion that I have, but I absolutely love to read. You'll usually find an unread book on my person, unless I'm already loaded down with books or binders from school.

If anyone else has this burning desire to pick up a good book/poem/magazine/short story, here are a few that I recommend to everyone. Some of the titles that I included might be a little tough to read, so forming a book club could help you understand the material a little…

The importance of sleep.

Sleeping is very important for everybody, we cannot be alive if we do not sleep well. We spend one third of our lives sleeping, and this help us to be healthy, active, it repairs our body, and keep us beautiful.  If we sleep 8 hours is more than enough to be healthy and ready to hit the day. It is very important because we need to be alert and concentrate at school to have good grades. It is not healthy to spend all night long studying for a test and go to school the next day without…
