The week before finals I was shocked when my best friend called me and told me she was thinking of breaking up with her boyfriend. They had been together for three years and were practically inseparable. When I asked her why, she said as she looked at him now she would never date the person he had become. He had joined at fraternity and was trying much too hard to fit in. On top of that he had stopped appreciating her, and she no longer felt like she was of any real importance to…Continue

They woke up early on Saturday's and Sunday's and rarely skipped a day of running. By the end of the training process, their legs were tired, but their determination was stronger than ever…Continue

Ambar Calvillo told her mother over dinner she was madly in love with another woman.
Although Irma Calvillo was shocked, she accepted her daughter to the fullest and then had to suffer through strong criticism from her family for that acceptance. “Nobody is going to tell me how to raise them,” she said.
Irma, 46, majoring in human resources and Ambar, 22, majoring in public relations will graduate together with BA degrees in May from the University of Texas at El Paso. “College…Continue
Last night was a great night to be stationed in front of the television for a few hours. The Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat met up for game three, Chicharito showed off his awesome soccer skills, and of course there was my personal pick, the 2011 MTV Movie Awards.
Tuning in for the award show has become a tradition of mine. Last night's show did not disappoint. Like, expected Twilight dominated the awards show, taking home everything from Best Movie to Best Kiss. I was grateful…Continue

As of yesterday I am no longer an Americas High School senior. Although I went through a fiasco and a half during senior clearance it feels nice to know that everything is in order and all I have to do this Saturday is shake the principles hand and grab my diploma :) It has been a good four years and I am unimaginably excited for the next four! I have the highest hopes for this summer and my first year away from home. It does make me a little sad because nothing will ever be the same after…Continue
