8 College to Career Tips

 When you graduate from college it can be challenging to adjust to a new routine. I went to college for six and a half years and worked at the University for my last three years in college. You get used to certain things like being busy, having homework all the time, working on campus, and you forget all the time you really put in to it. Until you graduate and realize that now you have all this free time and it is time to find a job. You must work on your resume and find the websites that…

Esta exhibición es muy importante porque será la primera vez que esta exhibición contara con la participación de una latina. Lo cual para mi es un gran logro para que la sociedad aprenda…

Why My Mom Is Special To Me

 The most influential person in my life is definitely my mother. Growing up she always set an example of independence and what it meant to do things on her own without a husband. I remember seeing her come home from work when I was young and although very tired, she would kick off her heels and join me on the couch to watch movies and catch up on how our day went. She made me believe that everything was possible, a great mother and she had a career. I remember daydreaming of the day that i…

DIY projects!

I know it might be finals for some of us, but I have some really great DIY (do it yourself) projects that you can try once you ace those exams to help get into the feeling of summer! Lately, I've been obsessing over Pinterest, and have fallen in love with all of the DIY projects people post.

Please, don't do things for attention

Just ranting...

Romanticizing mental illnesses, anorexia, abusive relationships, seriously, what is up with that? Suicide is not beautiful, scars are not pretty, mental disorders really aren't that special, in fact, they are more of a hassle to maintain. Being a "weirdo" seems now is a way for the younger crowd to generate some sort of status, "I'm pretty, I think, but I am broken in the inside and therefore everyone should be trying to get to know me and my…

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de mayo is known as the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla. The battle was in 1862 when a small outnumbered Mexican army defeated the French . It is also celebrated in Mexico , the way Mexicans celebrate it is by having parades, eating Mexican food and stuff like that. I really don't celebrate Cinco de Mayo because it is not an American holiday or I don't know much about it. Many people outside of Mexico confuse it with a celebration of Mexican independence but that one is celebrated…

My Favorite Teacher in college this semester

For me my favorite teacher in college that I had this semester is my education teacher because she has really been a good example of what a teacher should be. I want to be an elementary teacher, and I have learned many things from her on how we should involve parents in their child's education and why it is important that they keep helping their children with their education. Since the first day I knew that her class was going to be very interesting, well for me because I am learning…
