Jet Setting

So I just came back from Shell Lake, Wisconsin this past week. I went for work, and I taught a color guard camp to a small group of high school students of there. It was a truly unique experience being there. Its a beautiful, tiny town, where everybody knows everybody, as you drive down the street, people wave at you just to be nice, cell phone service is scarce, Chipotle is "Mexican" food, the nearest McDonald's is 10 miles away in the next town, and where deer and wildlife occasionally look… Continue

So we're here in the Latinitas office, and we over hear (its not hard to do that here) this man arguing with another man very, very loudly about some kind of money issue. Does he not realize that he is not only sitting outside our open office, but that the entire facility is cubicles? Everyone can hear you! Not only is he rude, and very loud, but he is cussing up a storm. He's wait on some lady to come give her a refund. When she finally gets here, he proceeds to start arguing with her. And she… Continue

Are you Silly?

She's been known as the sweet, girl next door until recently Miley has started to wear some questionable, more revealing outfits in her concerts. Critics have been vocal about how her wardrobe choices don't really go with her Disney persona. Miley defends her outfit choices by saying she's grown up and isn't a little girl anymore.… Continue

Put a plug in it?

On April 20th, a large explosion detroyed the Deepwater Horizon 50 miles off the coast of Lousiana in the Gulf of Mexico. Since then, BP, the global energy company responsible for the spill, has not been able to stop thousand of barrels of oil from spewing out of the sea floor. This large dark cloud of oil has been making its way towards the coast. Since that day BP has been taking measures to collect the oil spillinginto the ocean, and… Continue
