Taking A Chance On Love

The Lumineers ' Sleep On The Floor'

I love falling in love with a song. Especially if the message within the lyrics have such deep meaning. feelings and thoughts invade your mind causing a commotion between your logical self and the romantic you.

"Cause if we don't leave this town
We might never make it out
I was not born to drown
Baby come on"

The mourning of death have clouded the sky for this couple. It's no longer a happy place, they are "drowning" in their own town filled with strangers. If nothing happens now and they don't take the leap, They are going to be walking the same streets everyday.

"Forget what Father Brennan said
We were not born in sin"

Religious beliefs can have a strong hold on people. It can determine if they go with their lover crossing states or stay with that they know. What most people tend to forget is that God is love, Always choose love.

"Let your mother know you're safe
And by the time she wakes
We'll have driven through the state
We'll have driven through the night"

The decesion has been made. The more miles you out on the car the more liberated you feel. A new complicated chapter starts to unfold and all you have is your love. Nevertheless it's a trial only the strongest survive.

"Pack yourself a toothbrush dear
Pack yourself a favorite blouse"

The vibes are right and her lover is staring right into her eyes. The intimacy in that moment sparks something of what some might call madness. They leave within seconds taking a chance on themselves. Are you willing to sleep on the floor?

We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

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.
