Xmas Cheer and song! Where did I leave my tamal?

Ok...I have dedicated my last hours to sprucing up my social networking. It's a work in progress....

Before I go, I wanted to get into the festivities. Since tofu turkey day is over and crazy Friday is ending, Thank the Gods!

I felt like a little Xmas cheer...yay...not all at once please. ;p

Last year around this time I was heading out of the Texas globe and into a much bigger world. Let's just say New year's in China,on a boat, in the freezing weather, and no… Continue

Latinitas Hot Topic (Bilingual/bilingüe): Undocumented Youth/ Niños Indocumentados

Can you imagine being 14 years old and leaving your family to find a new home in another country? Imagine traveling for months alone with only a backpack crossing countries by whatever means of transportation you can find by hitchhiking, being crammed into a van or riding inside the trunk of car. That is exactly what happens to thousands of young immigrants who travel from Latin America to the United States of America for better way of life. When they finally make the journey to the U.S. and… Continue

The Uncomfortable Silence that is my intro!


Thought a little introduction would be nice, you know to ease over the uncomfortable silence one gets….especially when you’ve just sneaked into an ongoing conversation and your like, “HI!” and you can’t help but stand around trying to come up with something witty, and just as you think you’ve thought of something, someone turns around and asks you a question you completely do not know the answer to.

Then there is more uncomfortable silence, followed by some quirky facial… Continue

Positive Change

Change is not always bad. I am actually experiencing a few changes myself. I use to have long beautiful hair that went past my shoulders. I have just recently got my hair cut to where it is a centimeter above my shoulders. I have also decided to cut my hair to where now I have bangs. The last time I had bangs I was seven years old. My brother asked me why did I cut it, and I simple replied “Because I wanted to and I felt like it was time for a change.”

I am in the process of trying to… Continue

Latinitas Media Watch: Latinita for President

Hillary Clinton paved the way for women to run for the highest office in this country. But, looking at the sexist media coverage of her campaign just reinforced that the glass ceiling still exists for women in the U.S.A. Whether you call yourself a feminist or not, you probably can't deny that the media treated Hillary differently than her male counterparts. She was scrutinized for her voice, emotions and fashion style. When she spoke firmly with confidence, she was attacked as a B@&%! When… Continue

Latinitas University--Myths for the two of us.

This morning on the Seattle radio station KEXP 90.3 (thank God for live streaming), there was a program on the classic Latino myth of La Llorona. In my six-year-old heyday of throwing temper tantrums, my mother used to tell me the at once tragic, sensual, and frightening story of La Llorona in order to get me to stop screaming. The tale, with too many versions now to count, is, in a nutshell, about a jilted lover who drowns her children, and is forever cursed to moan and wail about their death… Continue

Obamanos at last!

Did anyone else notice Obama's nod to all the Latinos in the United States that voted for him, that wanted Hillary, but hated the Bush/McCain chain more, with his new (but not new to the United Farm Workers) mantra: "yes, we can," or to those of us who have heard it spoken in its native tongue: "Si se puede!" It was definitely a grateful and necessary thanks because Latinitas - you are clearly the new powerful force in U.S. elections!!!! Wow, it's good to feel inspired rather than that tragic,… Continue
