Music in the time of hipster
"I was into them before they got big," known as the classic hipster phrase. In today's fast-paced need-to-know attitude fueled by the web, there's a certain pride that comes with being the first to discover something, whether it be a novel scientific discov...

A short (but maybe not-so-sweet) one
So, it's been a while. I've actually been drafting a couple posts recently, but just haven't found the time to be able to finish them. School started today. And senioritis is definitely a thing. Never thought it would happen to me, but it has. One of my tea...

This is the latest I've stayed up in a while
Which sounds kind of pathetic for a 17 year old, but whatever, It's true. And to avoid the things that are actually making me stay up this late, I am going to write about things that are completely unrelated because that's what I do. It's not actually a ter...

Dichos, ponderings & a few vultures (for good measure)
Today has been a wild day. I've gone through a whirlwind of thoughts and emotions, and I haven't actually physically done much at all. I guess I'll start from the beginning... I woke up kind of late because my grandma had company over and I couldn't sleep. ...

I still love Puerto Vallarta
A few months ago, my parents visited after not having been in years. While they had a good time, they were disappointed with all the development that had been made since they had last visited, it just wasn’t the same PV they had known. After arriving yester...

Summer (Bucket?) List
Alright, this one's gonna be a long one. Summer just started, the weekend is about to be over and I'm already kind of ready for school to start again. Even though I had an amazing time at Summer Bash last night and there are lots of things I really want to ...

We feel and think
It's been a while. I haven't even looked at this blog in ages. I've started so many posts and had so many ideas but it just never happened. I always found a reason to not post. In any case, I have decided that an update of sorts is due... Today my best frie...

It's the middle of August...
School is going to start in less than three weeks. I have summer homework to do (except I don't actually know if any of my classes are solidified so I haven't started yet...), scholarships to apply for, a job to go to. A lot of things. And I'm kind of doing...

#FixingChicago
So, I've spent a lot of time this week after returning from Mexico catching up on what I missed out on. I was up-to-date on the World Cup, but I had been oblivious to everything else that happened for the two weeks I was gone. The first shock when I came ba...

Mascota is timeless
I don't know what it is about this place. I'm here with my grandma, sister, nephew and uncle after three years of not visiting, and somehow the place is remarkable unchanged. There are newer cars on the road, some restaurants have closed, replaced by a trad...

Art in its various forms
Today in the car I was thinking about all the things I wanted to do this summer and how I wanted to document it. The best way I know how is to write about it, it's just my natural tendency, the way I document everything, the way my mind works best. And then...

I can smell summer
It's in the air here at school. It's the smell of excitement and sweat, of fruits finally in season and deodorant over-applied. It gets closer with every tick of the clock, with finals almost done and field days awaited. It's been such a long year, summer i...
