How I First Got My Cell Phone And Why It Was Beneficial To Get One

Cell phones were important during high school. The teachers told us that we can use our cell phones to check our grades. I needed to use my cell phone to text or call my friends and classmates. My generation liked using social media because we can share pictures and videos, especially when it comes to extracurricular activities.

After eighth grade, I asked my father if I can get a cell phone during the summertime. I saw that a lot of my classmates and friends have cell phones. One time, I said, “Daddy, if you don’t get me a cell phone, then you are a bad daddy!” My family was laughing when they heard me say that.

One day during that summer, my father and I went to a store to buy a cell phone. I had to choose either a Samsung cell phone or an iPhone. I chose a Samsung cell phone. The model at that time was Samsung Galaxy S5. It had pretty features and backgrounds. A lot of my friends and classmates have iPhones. That did not stop me from using the Samsung Galaxy S5. I know that someone bought an iPhone to fit in. However, people should see which type of cell phone they like instead of seeing which type of cell phone most people have.

It was good that I got a cell phone at that time. Cell phones were important during high school. The teachers told us that we can use our cell phones to check our grades. I needed to use my cell phone to text or call my friends and classmates. My generation liked using social media because we can share pictures and videos, especially when it comes to extracurricular activities. Cell phones were one of the reasons why high school was fun and exciting.

Right now, I do not have the Samsung Galaxy S5 anymore. I upgraded my cell phone to a newer model. I will always remember the Samsung Galaxy S5 since it was with me throughout my four years of high school and the beginning years of college. I will also never forget my first experience with a cell phone.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.
