It is Our Time

“The sleeping Latino giant is wide-awake and it’s cranky,” said Eliseo Medina, international secretary-treasurer of the Service Employees International Union, regarding the 2012 Latino voter turnout. Making up 10% of the electorate in the United States, Latinos made enormous strides last Tuesday supporting President Barack Obama with a share of 71% of the total Latinos vote, according to exit polls. This is the highest share supporting the Democratic Party since 1996, when Bill Clinton gained a…See More

So, it’s that time again: election season. On November 6th President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney will face off in what seems to be one of the most highly politicized, over the top, vote-or-perish elections to date—or maybe I’m just paying more attention to social media. Recently, the presidential debates have taken place and have brought about a wide array of issues that are…See More

Mexican or American? Both?

It seems like the only time that the United States cares sports—anything anything other than football, I mean—is during the Olympics. Everyone gets excited and wears their US flag shirts, shorts, and/or underwear (yes, I’ve heard). It’s a time when everyone becomes a die-hard fan of well, everything. Suddenly everyone is a soccer fan, a volleyball fan, or a swimming fan! That’s great and…See More

Frida Kahlo Halloween

Posted on October 31, 2012 at 2:00pm 3 Comments

I’ve never been one for Halloween celebrations. I don’t know if it’s because of twelve years of Catholic school or because my parents never got excited about it. In any case, I really want to try and get into it this year. All of my friends get so excited and put a lot of time and effort into their costumes. I was thinking about all sorts of things, but I remembered one character or historical figure that I tried to recreate a few months back. One of my friends studying theatre asked me if I…
