We are all in that stage of our lives when we want know what being in a relationship is like.

Austin Film Fetival

This weekend I had the opportunity to volunteer at the Austin film festival and It was a blast . Day one consisted of making the film passes and badges while walking out and handing it to the directors and producers themselves. I arrived to the Driskill Hotel in downtown Austin (the venue where I was stationed) and the commotion was incredible. People everywhere, photographers and reporters walking up and down the stairs, and the crowd of people waiting to get into the film area. It was truly a…See More

Artistic Latinas

      Although this painting depicts the wrenching emotional pain Frida Kahlo’s divorce from Diego Rivera, art speaks to people in many different ways. On the left is the traditionally dressed, exposed Frida, with her broken heart . On the right is the stronger, cosmopolitan Frida, whose intact heart feeds the other Frida. Both hearts are connected to a locket containing a picture of…See More

Cooking with Abuelita

My favorite Hispanic tradition definitely is Christmas. Every year  my grandma,  my great grandma, my sister and I get together in the kitchen about three days before Christmas Eve and make tamales.This tradition began back when my great grandmother was a young girl, and she also helped her mother cook. It is always the same, red tamales, green tamales, candy tamales, and bean tamales. Eventually, it became a tradition that has continued until now.The process begins at the crack of dawn…See More

SLOW DOWN CONSUMERIST AMERICA!

 I went shopping yesterday to a variety of stores that included Target and Cielo Vista Mall. I was amazed at the retail because it is the beginning of a new year, and target already had summer dresses and swim suits in stock. Calm down people.....Winter is at its climax and the stores are already trying to sell the new line of Jessica Simpson's swimwear.I also noticed it is all women's clothes that constantly change due to the "New trends and styles". Yes, they are constantly changing, the…See More

Be Proactive

going to.....COLLEGE*dramatic music*Sounds intimidating right? well it shouldn't be.... Taking the first step towards college preparation is a good way to start.As a high school student,one is automatically pressured with that question of "what are you going to do in the future?"A good way to start planning for the future in college, is to take all the honor courses and advanced placed classes possible. I have taken in my four years of high school: Pre-AP and AP English, AP Art History, AP…See More

Patience....Pass it on...

One thing I learn at soccer practice, is how to be patient. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and one just has to learn to deal with them or improve them. As a player on the team, one must be able to move as a unit, and with 18 different minds, personalities, and bodies, sometimes the task is not easy. Trust me, it it actually quite difficult...As a captain I have learned to have patience and to listen to every girl. Keeping everyone in mind is being considerate while choosing what is best…See More

Teen Voter

Today in school we had mock elections in the library. The whole political environment really made it seem like I was actually voting. Most Seniors in high school are18 already and can vote, I am one of many that make up the group of students that are the exception. The summer babies such as myself don't turn 18 until after high school graduation, therefore prolonging our voting privileges until next elections. As a was walking in, the administrators asked for my name and gave me a ballot and a…See More
