My sHERO

My mother is (and will forever be) my sHero. She was a courageous woman, full of life, and had a heart of gold. Cheesy, considering everyone reiterates the same concept about their mom. 



Nothing made her happier than seeing her children succeed. She taught me that an education is an integral part to success. To have strong family values. That a strong work ethic defines who you are, but that you don't have to tear people down in order to reach  the top. To always be kind,…

When it rains, it pours

The month of April has been nothing short of being a huge pain in the butt.

Pain #1: I caught a cold and could've sworn a trip to the emergency room was in the horizon. You know something is horribly wrong when you take a cold shower … with only the cold water on…. and you become frustrated because it's not cold enough. The good news is that I can partially breathe now, but I still…

Is it time for Tamales?

Ahh, the sweet, sweet, sweet smell of tamales! As the scent of freshly cooked tamales wafts through the air, I am reminded of how grateful I am to have a loving mother whose cooking rivals top chefs. One of my favorite childhood memories is helping my mom make tamales on Christmas eve. We gather on Christmas eve and spend the entire day making tamales. Since my immediate family does not spend that much time together due to hectic schedules, living outside El Paso, etc., this is our chance to…

Summer Adventure: London

Oh, Summer. A great disdain for the summer heat but an affinity with the stress-free time that it brings. Fall semester will start in three weeks and I plan on continuing to enjoy it.... even though it barely started. 

My "summer vacation" did not officially start until the 2nd week of July when my Summer I class wrapped up. In June I was fortunate to enroll in a study-abroad course and it was the best decision I have made this year. The course dealt with Theatre,…
