12 Facts Of Life When You Have Curly Hair
Gabby Sheetz

From using gallons of Suave detangler as a child to using gallons of hairspray today, my curly hair has always taken up a fair amount of my attention daily. My hair is a pain to deal with, and the amount of money I spend on hair products is outrageous. However, I wouldn't trade my curly hair for the world nowadays. Mostly because I have figured out that a little water on it in the morning has it all set to go, and I'm lazy.

But, nonetheless, here are some facts of life when your hair isn't straight or wavy but CURLY. We all know they're true.

1. You might not even own a brush because when you brush your hair it looks like it grew two feet (ESPECIALLY if it was dry)

2. Your hair looks different each day because for some reason it curls different. Each. Day. Except for that one annoying strand of hair that ALWAYS curls straight out from the side of your head. That one looks the same. 

3. People always wanna TOUCH it.

4. You do NOT want them to TOUCH it. 

5. You probably have a specific hair routine, and if you steer away from it you're done. Just bank on wearing a ponytail the next day because that is the only way you're gonna get yourself to leave the house with that frizz-ball on your head. 

6. You spend way too much money on hair mousse, hairspray, gel, etc., and it is not fair. 

7. When one of your favorite hair products is discontinued, you feel like you need to have a funeral for it. THEN, rush to every beauty supply store and find something to replace it before it comes time to do your routine again. 

8. Rain either makes your hair curl more and look fantastic OR makes your hair look INSANE and HUGE. There is no in-between.

9. You either look great in all hats or have a hard time wearing them because of how much hair you have. Again, no in-between. 

10. Braiding your hair results in thousands of tangles and you probably just end up throwing up into a bun or ponytail any way. 

11. You love your curly hair when it looks good, but hate it when it looks bad.

12. Yes, your hair is a pain, but you will always have people running up to you, saying, "I wish I had curly hair!" And THAT will always feel nice :)

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.
