I feel like I have to say this to all my fellow Dominicans and Latino(a) people out there who think the looting is the worse thing about all of the protests after George Floyd’s murder - and to all my Christian brothers and sisters who know that God’s greatest treasure is a human being. I … Continue reading A Letter to My Community
Almost every year for Lent, I give up social media up until Easter Sunday. Every year, I miss it then I don't, and every year after Easter I go back to gradually using social media again until I feel addicted to it. It's an endless cycle, but one that I try to break. This year, … Continue reading The Continuing Loop of Tech Addiction
I have so much to say about love, self love, etc. I felt compelled to write this post because of Valentine's Day yesterday and seeing all of the longing for love, especially in girls/women. This will be short but I hope helpful. There's this notion that is instilled in people at a very young age … Continue reading Love is Kind
It's an epidemic. The majority of the women I know don't fully understand their beauty and value. Most of us would change things about our appearance or rather have something that another woman has. I rather have curly hair and I rather be a little shorter. I've always wondered why we're so hard on ourselves. … Continue reading The Power of the WOMAN
What a difficult thing - humility. I believe most of us don't even know what the word actually means. I know I didn't. The reason why I'm writing this post is that today - January 1st - in addition to being New Year 2019, it is also the Solemnity of Mary the Mother of God. … Continue reading Humility – The Most Difficult Virtue EVER!
In a world where faith and the practice of religion is on a decline, God still seems to shine a little light through the cracks. You probably thought the beginning of that sentence was going to lead to some movie trailer, but no. I just want to tell you guys a little story. My friend … Continue reading Connecting the Dots
It’s almost Christmas!!! I think that in the midst of shopping for gifts, doing holiday-related activities like ice skating or visiting the tree in Rockefeller Center, we forget what we're really celebrating. This week, I went to mass and the main celebrant was Timothy Cardinal Dolan of the Archdiocese of New York. If you're not Catholic … Continue reading ‘Tis the Season
There's no place like home, right? Even though I don't live there, San Jose de las Matas (Sajoma) is definitely my favorite place on earth. When that plane lands in Santiago International Airport, I feel like I've just arrived home. It's a weird feeling, but I never feel like that anywhere else. Not even where I … Continue reading Sajoma
Side note: It's almost been a year since I've uploaded a blog post, which makes me sad because I like to write about random thoughts. But I promise myself that I will write more often. I've been meaning to write about how I've been able to grow my hair out. About five years ago, my … Continue reading Hair Tips: How I Repaired My Damaged Hair.
Last week, my co-workers and I dressed up as Sara, Gary and mir.i.am from Jimmy Fallon's 'Ew!' skit. He release a video to the skit with will.i.am and it was epic. I was mir.i.am and I worked extremely hard to get my costume to look almost identical to the one that will.i.am wore. So there … Continue reading Best Halloween Ever!
