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!
Before Zac Efron, Derek Jeter was the only one I had eyes for. Yes, Derek was my first love. I used to have a poster in my room that said "Show Stopper". My Dominican dad never knew what that meant. On this very sad, rainy day, I say bye to Derek. The last of the … Continue reading Farewell Captain
