The interviewing process

I miss the feeling of personally interviewing people.

I love communicating through phone as that is the closest I'll get to "feeling" the other person's feelings. Still, I can recall the rush I felt as I made my way down the stairs of my college, or the imprints in the dirt as I rushed to my next joint, where there were multiple personalities to be interviewed!

Good thing, I live near a high school. I will be able to do the same for the last month of Latinitas…

Americans too lazy for microwave popcorn?

America, we've hit a new low!

According to Advertising Age, they explain, "

“Microwave popcorn at its inception was all about convenience, having only to wait three minutes to get warm, delicious popcorn,” said Colleen Bailey, Orville [Redenbacher]'s brand director. But “as times have changed, the definition of convenience has changed.”

“You don't have to take the extra step of opening the box, opening the wrapper,” and “hoping you have the skill to watch it…

A Day in the Life of a Graduate

So it's been eight days since I graduated from college. It feels like an eternity. This is because I have no job at the moment. In the last four days that I sleep so much, perhaps my body is recovering from the lack of sleep I have endured in the months previous to graduation. Oh! But let me tell you that the sleeping is going to extremes. I think I may be sleeping too much!

Can that really be?

I do note that my exercise routine is on hiatus at the moment. The one thing that…

It's Not Goodbye, It's I'll See You Later

It's been two days since I graduated and I feel better than last times post.

It could be because I am still in my internship stages. I love interning with Latinitas, very much so. I love the whole communication process even if it is through email or social networks.

As sad as I was about leaving the students that I tutored, I am sure I left them a strong and positive impression of our relationship. Their attempts to read to me and complete their homework show me so much of…

The end of school is here! Graduation today!

I've come to the sudden realization that I do not want to leave Pennsylvania. This is because I met friends whom I love. Who like me for me and likewise.

I don't want to panic, but I am. I don't want to come home and "start all over again" with making friends. It took two years to make the friends that I did. I know, I know, "I can meet friends anywhere I go," it was just so hard for me to become vulnereable. I don't want to go through that for another set of people.

It's not…

Riding a horse is like riding a bike

Just kidding, riding a horse is not at all like riding a bike. I went out with my friend Aly to York, PA to ride on a horse for the very first time.

Horses can be so therapeutic as I found out Saturday night. Instead of getting ready for finals I decided to go with my friend to her hometown. I figured I would have fun as I been working on a 30 page final for the last 2 1/2 weeks.

I know I will regret it coming tomorrow morning. Whatever the case, I went and I had such a…

Tutoring English as a second language students.

These are my ESL students I tutor for at Wilson College. Irvin and Lizbeth. It's amazing how much they loved to see their rocks like I promised them. Irvin and Lizbeth gave me the biggests smiles ever.I love coming to class to help them read in English, although I tend to find it really difficult that neither can write or pronounce letters yet. It's too bad I found about this…

The Labyrinth Project

This weekend is better, for lack of a better word, even though the amount of work left to do seems almost insurmountable. (I have a 30 page paper due by tomorrow evening and I only have five pages complete.) Gosh darnit, I needed a break. So, I was pretty glad that yesterday was Wilson Colleges' first annual Labyrinth Project.

For those of you who may not know, a labyrinth is like a maze, but unlike a maze it is designed to help you find yourself. So, when the oppurtunity to walk…
