In The Next Six Months...

I will thrive.

In The Next Six Months...

In the next six months, I will be half way done with college. I will stand in front of twenty kids, for the next six months, as they eagerly tell me everything they love about school. In the next six months, I will lose some friends, and I will gain some friends. I will hold my head higher than the last six months, because I am finally confident in myself and my future. And in the next six months, I will (hopefully) decide if I plan to go to graduate school. I will tell my mom I love her approximately three hundred sixty times and I will make her proud every day.

In the next six months, I will continue to discover myself, and I will strive to become a better me. In the next six months I might become sad with myself, but I will continue to overcome. In the next six months, I will be turning twenty, and as scary as that is, I feel like I'm finally ready, because I have learned the ins and outs of teenaged angst and I'm ready to feel something different. In the next six months, I'll say goodbye to my family a few times as I leave home to continue my journey through college, and I'll have to kiss my friends goodbye as some graduate, but I will remind myself that I am almost there and I will continue to push through.

In the next six months, I pray my confidence will grow, and maybe I will also work on my time management skills. I will set reachable goals for myself to be able to finally feel proud of my accomplishments. In the next six months, I will still be in love with teaching, I will continue to inspire and challenge my students. I will smile when they shout my name down the hallways even though we both know that we don't yell in the hallways. I also hope that in the next six months, I'll acquire a new pair of khakis that fit me the way khakis should.

The next six months have so much in store for me. As I approach twenty, I am constantly thinking about all of the blessings that I have had in the past twenty years, and I pray that the next six months hold so much opportunity for me.

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

... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

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.

Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Be careful what you do and post


Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.
