There Is A Such Thing As Line Etiquette

When I was younger, I remember my mom telling me that I shouldn't stand so close to the person in front of me in a line. She described it as being rude. I listened to her and followed what she said. As I grew older, I realized why she said it.

To me, in any line at any place, it is polite to give the person in front of you some space. Especially during the summer, a lot of people cannot stand a complete stranger all over them, breathing down their damn necks OK?! A lot of things are common sense, some may disagree with me but I feel that should be apart of the common sense pool. It's just, not respectful in my opinion.

For one thing, I have trust issues. We live in a time where scamming and robbery is very common. If you stand too close to me while I am making a monetary transaction, I automatically assume you don't have the best intentions. Sorry, not sorry. Are you trying to see my bank card? Are you trying to see my pin number? What exactly is your motive for standing too close? Also, some of you don't always smell the best. No shade.

I get it, some people really do not know. But I'd like to think you too would also like some space. Being super close to someone would prevent you from having it. What if I had to suddenly move back a little? Or made a hand/arm movent and accidentally hit you? Then I'd more than likely be accused of not being careful or paying attention. Think about that for a second.

I am not upset while writing this, believe it or not. HOWEVER, I would like to bring it to the world's attention. There is no logical reason to stand super close to someone in line. Be aware of your line etiquette people. Thanks.

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.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran. This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. 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.

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.
