Novelas are a thing we all hate to admit we love and grew up watching as kids in Latin culture. If you are a kid with some sort of Latin/Hispanic upbringing chances are you watched one, you laughed with one, and you were shocked when the evil ex-girlfriend faked a pregnancy and threw herself off … Continue reading How Racism in The U.S. Has Showed The Ugly Face of Racism in Latin America.
I love food, I always have, I've been a foodie way before the term was invented and I was proud of it. But there's another side to food, one that I am not as eager to discuss, nor as happy to mention, its the side that I rather not talk about most days because it … Continue reading Beautiful bodies, tortured minds
Life is short, no, really, it's very short. I still can't believe how old I am, and people around me are still telling me I'm too young to feel old. I wonder sometimes, how old will I feel when people stop telling me that? I'm sure you've read in previous posts about how I studied … Continue reading The Game Of Life isn’t Played Right
This is not another article about race. This is also not an article about what I think about any race in particular, or what I think people should think about race, this post is about how I feel about my own particular ambiguity and why not only am I proud of it, but why I … Continue reading Racially Ambiguous & Proud.
It's well into the summer in Spain and you know what that means... right? We all go on vacation, we drop our responsibilities and we forget that we ever had them or that we will have them come September (deemed the Monday of the year by Spaniards). We are closer to the end of the … Continue reading Unfollow Negativity
Hello readers and writers, I've decided that this post will be a little different, I wanted to share some of the things that I have noticed and seen to be quite curious about living in Spain. I have had the privilege of moving around a wonderful lot, but haven't really taken the time to write … Continue reading Life in Spain, What’s it like?
I remember when getting older was something I looked forward to with much-anticipated joy. Among my friends, it was always the eldest one of the group who had the most bragging rights. So much so that we liked to add a precocious "and a half" to whatever age we were so that we could be … Continue reading 29 Life Lessons
I wake up, my heart is racing out of my chest because I've just woken up from one of the worst dreams I've ever had. It's always one of the "worst" dreams I've ever had, every fear, every negative thing I could ever have thought of, it just comes up in this one carefully packaged … Continue reading A Monthly Spell
Hello readers, By the title of this post I'm sure many of you are thinking that this is some sort of beauty related article, or that I'm going to give some tips on how to go through a "hair recovery" but I'm actually not. Rather, this is about something I've realized recently. I actually made … Continue reading How I Ruined My Hair For Other People
From March 1st to the 19th (and a little bit before that), in a small city called Valencia, Spain, there is a holiday called "Fallas" which nobody would ever believe existed unless they experienced it. My latest nomadic journey took me here, to this precise city, and although I often question how on earth I … Continue reading Fallas in Valencia & Why it’s life.
There's nothing quite as disconcerting as the death of a dream, I can compare it to the death of a star. Dramatic, explosive, a display of utter wonder and amazement, and in some beautiful way... tragic. I don't know if what I'm writing about is truly the death of a dream and the beginning of … Continue reading I Think Fashion Let Me Go
This is one of those articles where I admit to following my thoughts deep into the rabbit-hole of questions and theories, well into the point of no-return. Granted, I take these kinds of trips on a daily basis, but I don't recommend it as it is not for the faint of heart. What I'm about … Continue reading The Spiritual Spiritless
Today I took a Pilates class. I used to dance ballet when I was younger and I was quite passionate about it until I realized I wasn't doing to good in terms of injuries and time management. I began college, and I quit ballet. I was sad to quit it, but I had no choice … Continue reading How a pilates class taught me something
This post may be a little out of the ordinary from the usual psychological and over-thought depth pile that I share on this blog, but it was something which I thought was so comical I just had to write about it. Unless you've been living under a rock, or working a lot which is basically … Continue reading My Mom’s take on La La Land
A true wanderer never gets homesick, or do they? I think that even though the concept of "home" is a very different one for those of us who have the Fernweh disease, I don't think that it is completely non-existent. For me, home is a series of memories, things that bring me back to a … Continue reading Homesick
I had waited a long time to write this post, even though I had been writing it long before anyone was considered a candidate for election, long before the memes began and the protests started. I am an American, my whole life (most of it) was lived there, that's where I went to high school, … Continue reading How I feel about America now
A story about accepting that not every door will open for you and it's okay.
Dear readers, Happy 2017! It has been a while, but this distance will become a bit more common as I combine working with various activities from my doctorates programme. Just to give you all a little update, I spent most of November and December working and studying, and the last part of December and beginning … Continue reading Thoughts on Growing Up & 2016
Hello lovely readers, today I have felt the need to discuss a topic which is a bit of an epidemic among us: the over sharing of our lives on social media. For a few years now, I have followed a few families on YouTube. Many of them, if not all, share their daily routines, changes, … Continue reading We Share Because We Care
Hello readers, Long time no post, I shall begin this article by stating the following: my life is going pretty well, it truly is, I'm happy, and although this article won't "exude" such happiness, I must state that things could be and have been a lot worse in my life and this is merely more … Continue reading The Truth About The “Millennial Generation”
There's nothing quite like the rush I feel when I know exactly what to write. I dash to my computer with a speed unlike any other, and this morning I got that priceless feeling. I haven't gotten around to writing about this particular subject in the way that I've wanted to for so long, there's … Continue reading Norway, This is For You.
A few days ago I was talking to a friend of mine, she is a lovely girl and very pretty. I don't remember quite how the conversation led to this but at some point she said to me... "you are an attractive girl, you're not this gorgeous supermodel type, you're definitely not a miss Universe, … Continue reading I Am Beautiful, And I Think So.
