Citi Bikes aren't just for City people, Right?

This morning in the New York Times, there was an article about Citi Bikes were in. People were actually looking forward to the bike sharing program for personal reasons. Still, there's a slight hesitation from me. If a bike program exists for a city as big as NY why could there not be such a thing for Houston. If we really are the 4th "fattest"city, why not us?


I am sure we can benefit from it greatly. In this city, residents complain that bikers are not given the…

Jennifer Lopez starring in Chilean miner movie?!

  The Hollywood Reporter confirmed this morning that Jennifer Lopez, best known for her role as Selena, will act with Antonio Banderas in a movie titled 33. 33 is a depiction of the miners who were stuck underground for a gruesome number of days.

Read, think, write

I've read a lot of online blog posts. Most of them incorporate feminist thought and woman power.

I remember as a young girl questioning everything on television, as the online blogs post up. Now that I am older I am able to voice my opinion even through my thoughts written by computer on sites like Latinitas, in blogs.

It's truly fascinating, it really is. The assumption that girls do read and take in what they read is spot on. I just want to be another young lady who inspires…
