To be or not to be

http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/beauty/teen-pageant-winner-decrowned-after-dyeing-hair-brown-2293661/;_ylt=AvELZbKXqnY9Nc1j5O_jWNlpbqU5As a girl I feel pressured to look and act a certain a way.

Less is more

I admire the couple that decided to do away with the extra stuff and live simply. The woman has minimized her closet and her life by limiting herself to 100 items.I don’t know what I would bring if the house was burning down, much less 100 items for the rest of my life. They are working less, earning less but enjoying life more.That’s one of my goals, to try to simplyfy the items in my life. However there are certain things I can’t limit myself to, movies and books. I think that’s fair; you…See More

Wrong In Both Languages

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100805/ap_on_go_ot/us_ap_univision_poll_hispanics_language_barriersYou mean it’s difficult to learn in another language? Well, duh!

Why don’t Hispanics support one another?

I was away at school when the Arizona immigration law came into light. That night at the sorority meeting we had a discussion about it. I left the room angrier withmy fellow Hispanic sisters, than at the white people passing the law.The young women were agreeing with the law, because they said it didn’t really affect them.

However, my weakness is that I sometimes take it to the extreme. At one point, or maybe I’m still going through it, I was passionate about feminism. I was all about not getting married, not believing in fathers walking down their daughters down the aisle, hating cheerleading and hating girls that…
