I spoke too soon – my mojo is back

Recently, someone has been putting inspiration people in my life. For some reason, someone has me crossing paths with people who have had it harder than me and are somehow still making a new for themselves. While I was on my way to the MLC, I was thinking about this and then it hit me. … Continue reading I spoke too soon – my mojo is back

My biggest pet peeve about being Hispanic

I cannot stand when people automatically assume I'm Mexican. I also can't stand when people say "oh they're Mexican" when they really mean "oh they're Hispanic." I don't understand where the ignorance comes from. It's just like when people generalize Orientals¬†and say that they're all Chinese. Do they not understand how vastly different each of … Continue reading My biggest pet peeve about being Hispanic

Why I won’t proofread my blog posts

If you've ever read one of my blog posts, there are probably a million grammatical errors. When I write a blog post, I just start typing. The words flow through and I type them out.

One of my last posts talked about how every day … Continue reading Every day is a battle. . . with myself

I’m not perfect

I'm not perfect and I've never claimed to be. There are plenty of things that I still need to work on about myself. For instance, I tend to be extremely impulsive. Whatever I'm feeling in that moment kind of becomes me. And none of that helps in situations that occur in my daily life. What … Continue reading I’m not perfect

How being a private person makes me vulnerable

I have always always been a private person. To this day, there are only a handful of people that know my grandma died 3 years ago. I'm not one to advertise how my daily life is going or tell everyone all the things that happen in that life. With that being said, people talk. And … Continue reading How being a private person makes me vulnerable

The summer of my dreams

Coming home this summer was like a breath of fresh air. I've had one of the best summers I could have ever asked for. It wasn't perfect in the mainstream beach everyday and summer romance kind of way. It was perfect because everything I did was on my own personal goal list, or just plain … Continue reading The summer of my dreams
