Ahh, finally the sweet taste of internet! And it's even better to know that it is at my fingers tips, at last, whenever I need it! I was just saying to myself this morning, if it weren't for internet being unavailable at my house, I would have less stress in my life. I would be able to send my five page Theology paper at 8 in the morning, not having to call my mom with directions on using a USB drive. WELCOME TO THE 21ST CENTURY MOM! And it was the paper I spent till 3:15 in the morning working… Continue

Forever In The Sunset

Virginia Pictures, Images and Photos

In light of my recent liberation from final exams and my Insomnia, you get treated to another nonsensical rambling blog, which ends abruptly and utterly pointlessly.

A week ago or so, a friend whispered into my ear ( i don't know the reason for the whisper...I was chugging down some green tea and… Continue

Latinitas Media Watch: Does TV Impact Teen Pregnancy?

Looking at recent media trends it seems like everyone is talking about getting pregnant at a very young age. Is teen pregnancy becoming the new cool? Celebrities are doing it.

Teen Reporter Voice- Ignoring the Goss. It's Possible!!

Don’t Try Out For the Play, Be an Audience Member. Or better yet, ignore it!

It’s hard to stay out of drama because that is what high school revolves around. It’s not about staying out of it; it’s more about learning how to handle it because drama will be a part of life as long as humans are involved. The easiest thing to do is just smile and be an audience member. Don't sign up for the Drama Club. Simply observe and reply with “uh-huh” and “mhm”. You just need to recognize… Continue

Latinitas University--More to visit in Mexico than Tijuana

The topic in my Sociology class a few weeks ago was over global inequality and stereotypes, which reminded me of a common generalization of Mexico that I've come across pretty often here in Austin. For most people, the frequent misconception about Mexico is one of a country that resembles its border cities: dirty, crowded, desperate, and poor. I'm embarrassed to say that I once ignorantly thought the same way. When I ventured further into Mexico for the first time, past the border towns, I was… Continue

Book Review:

Twilight is the book im reviewing. The author is Stephenie Meyer. I would rate the book from 1- 5 stars, I would give it 5 stars. The book is about this girl named Bella. She falls in love with a vampire named Eduard. The thing I like from the book is that it gives a lot, but great description. Not just any description just, like, so good it makes you see it in your head or imagine it as real. I would recommend all her other books, which i read 3 of. ( Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking… Continue
