Venezuela, We Stand With You

A look at Venezuelan's latest attempt to retake their country back from criminally incompetent politicians.

Venezuela, We Stand With You

On Wednesday, October 26 our social medias were all buzzing with the Venezuelan cry for freedom and peace. Any media you chose to visit was either trending with #LaTomaDeVenezuela (the takeover of Venezuela), #libertad (freedom) or #DesobedienciaCivil (civil disobedience).

Once you click any of those links you could easily see the hundreds of thousands of people that have gone out to the streets to attempt for the third time in the last four years to put an end to the reign one of the most corrupt and incompetent presidents Latin America has ever had the disgrace to possess.

A country that, in theory, possesses all the factors to be a powerful nation driven to shambles by an uneducated, power crazy, socialist who couldn't learn how to properly manage a country even if knowledge hit him in the face. Venezuelans all throughout the country have gathered, once again, to denounce Maduro and his tyrannical rule.

But, a country in which the president has the power to cut and sensor the internet and the media, who can order the army and armed forces at his will and who can order the criminal capture of his opposition without any regulation other than his own mind cannot accomplish this by itself.

Venezuela needs our help. Venezuela needs us to pay attention. It needs us to denounce its president's crimes. It needs us to pay attention and react. Not to react by directly intervening with our own forces, but to send our prayers, our encouragement, and our moral support. Venezuela needs for us to pay attention just like we pay attention to the crimes in Syria and Aleppo.

Let us act now that the country can still be saved and not later when its entire infrastructure resembles that of the war cities in the middle east. Let us ask the united nations to relinquish their support from this tyrannical ruler. Let us pay attention to what is going on elsewhere then that which is directly in front of our noses.

Venezuela, we have heard you and your plight and we stand with you as you fight against oppression. We commend you for your bravery. I hope that you are able to succeed in gaining the very needed freedom you deserve so that you can become the nation that you have to potential of being.

Sincerely, a very concerned Guatemalan who has seen the power of the masses fighting against corruption.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
