Belly Dancing


On Friday night my friends and I decided to go to a party that's held on the first Friday of every month. They have different bands and DJs playing. They sell arts and crafts from the community including jewelry, T-shirts, posters, etc. They have local publications available for free and there was even a booth that sold treats like chocolate and candy from different parts of the world like India and Japan. 


It is usually a lot of fun to go to these parties. It's a…

It's so cold!


Just in case you didn't think it was winter, mother nature came around to demostrate the power of freezing temperatures. 

My friend from Chicago, braced for the winter storm of the year calling it snowpocalypse! 

I live in Texas, which is pretty far from Illinois, but I still had to prepare for this huge storm that has halted city life. 

In El Paso, it is Day 3 of schools being closed down. Rolling blackouts are part of my life now. Since Wednesday, 7 of the 8…

Inspirations can turn into decisions

Hola latinitas! First, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Elaine Alvarado and I am a new editorial intern for Latinitas. I am excited to write and contribute for this great cause and would love and welcome any comments from you in the future.

Around the time I was nine years old, my family and I moved to Guatemala. Many people do not know where this country is located, but it is right next to Mexico and it is a very beautiful place. Both of my parents were born and had grown…

"And all you're ever gonna be is MEAN."

Google. Most people that I know, know of this infamous search engine. Lots of different search queries pop up as a list below what you've typed, as you begin your search in hopes of finding an answer to your question. Moments ago, I typed into Google's search bar, 'girls dealing with' and the first query that was listed beneath my search-to-be was 'girls dealing with bullies.' No surprise there.

This query inspired me to write this post, hopefully the first of many to come. So why do…

When I grow up.....

Every girl has an idea as to what she'd like to do someday, right? I know all of my friends and I once had a dream job we aspired to have, whether it was to be a doctor, a veterinarian, a ballerina, or a fashion designer. For me, I wanted to be a ballerina and a veterinarian. Looking back fondly on these memories, I'm glad I had hopes and dreams for those sorts of things- it's all part of being a girl! These days, there's a lot of pressure for teen girls and what they're considering for their… Continue

Let's skype?!

Yesterday I used skype for the first time ever! 

Yes, I know, I know, I'm a late bloomer. I know skype has been around for a while. My friend actually used to use skype years ago on my computer to talk to her boyfriend in Germany. But I never got around to learning how to use it. 

I got my own skype a few months ago. I have friends that live in all different parts of the country and world. I thought it'd be a nice way to connect. I never actually figured it out though. I'm not…
