Life's Simple Pleasures

Sitting In The Car Listening To The Radio

We've all had those days where we needed a well deserved pause from life. Regardless of what we choose to believe, people break down at times. Even the strong ones have, they've just learned to hide it better.

I experienced one of these days at work. My brain was a mush and my body was worn like old clothes. I knew it was time to withdraw myself from any type of social contact. I needed to be sitting in that car listening to that radio at midnight.

I didn't punch walls, or curse at the never ending sky. I simply sat and listened to the lyrics, feeling the vibrations of the car. It was free therapy from the universe. Sometimes the lyrics hit hard like a pound of thick red bricks. I felt every word at a personal level. I just imagined what that person who wrote the lyrics was feeling at that exact moment. The vulnerability that they must have felt when that pen touched that paper.

When we feel suffocated by all the pollution coming from people's mouths, whenever our body is on the brink of calling it quits, what do you do? Some of us cry or see the bottom of a whiskey bottle, as for me, I like to sit in that car listening to that radio!

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.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"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.
