New Year's Resolutions

Now that it is December it has got me thinking: what will my new year's resolutions be this year?  What will I do (or try to do!) to make 2013 a success?

Here is what I want to accomplish in 2013, in no particular order:

-Get healthy: This means different things to different people.  But for me it means exercising more and learning how to cook healthier meals.

What am I thankful for? Thankful for each day

Yesterday I found out that one of my classmates that I graduated 8th grade with passed away.  He was only 21, far too young to go.  His death was a complete surprise to me and the rest of my classmates.  Sure, I had not seen him since graduation but it never occurred to me that any of my classmates would pass away so young.

Why am I Proud to be a Latina?

Why am I proud to be a Latina? My father came to the U.S. from Mexico when he was just 12. His mother sent him here so that he could have better opportunities.

What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

The question that I get asked at nearly every family gathering is “What do you plan to do after college” a.k.a “What do you want to be when you grow up?” 

When I was young I wanted to be a veterinarian.  As I got older I threw out that idea because I could not bare the thought of performing surgery on animals so I switched my dream career to…
