Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

This past weekend was all that I needed and more. This semester has been extremely busy for me due to 15 hours of school, 30 hours/wk working at a grocery store and 13 hours/wk interning at the office. Needless to say, a vacation was definitely the stress reliever I was looking for.

Two weeks ago, my friend, Laura (who is the most spontaneous person I've ever known), asked me if I wanted to go to New Orleans at the end of September (for no particular reason at all other than the fact that we've never been). Being that I finally have a steady income, I agreed. I felt like I deserved some "Me Time."

The road trip there was a bit scary due to the heavy rain through some parts but beautiful nonetheless. Louisiana is so full of culture! I found beauty in some of the smallest details. It was definitely a breath of fresh air.


Here are some of the pics I took:



We only spent 3 days there which didn't seem long enough at all. There's so much more that we wanted to do and see but we're definitely planning on going back as soon as we can.

The road trip was 9 hours long and during that time, I was able to do a lot of thinking. One thought that has really resonated with me is how thankful I am to have been able to experience that. I've always said I wanted to travel and I'm finally at a point in my life where I'm able to do just that!

This year, I'll be spending New Year's Eve in New York City with two of my sorority sisters! I've always wondered what Times Square is like that time of year. My dreams of traveling are starting to come together and even though it's only a few states, I know foreign countries aren't far behind!

It sounds nice to just get away for a while; it seems like nowadays everyone needs that. There is so much unnecessary stress everywhere. Enjoy these trips for all of us who can't take them! Experiencing different cultures and even just seeing new places can help show you a new way of looking at things. Have fun at New York!
