The Greatest Presents I Received This Christmas

They weren't all under a tree

The Greatest Presents I Received This Christmas

This Christmas was different. I definitely felt the holiday spirit a lot more than I had in past years but rather than it being about the presents I received, it came from somewhere much deeper. Here are the greatest presents that weren't under a tree.

  1. Getting to spending time with all of my family
  2. Knowing that there is a party in heaven right now with George's Michael, Carrie Fisher, and her mom, Debbie Reynolds
  3. Seeing my dads face light up as he got to play his old records on my new record player
  4. Giving my parents tickets to a show that they had last seen on Broadway, 20 years ago.
  5. Watching my sister run around acting like a reindeer
  6. Doing interpretive dances to Christmas carols with my siblings
  7. Performing different skits with my siblings
  8. Getting to continue our traditions(watching a Christmas story and eating Chinese food)
  9. Going to see Santa and remembering that the spirit of Christmas is always present if you want it to be
  10. Knowing that 2017 is so close:)

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.

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.
