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 ...

Coffee and a hardware store (all dolled up with nowhere to go)
Of the over ten-point list, the top three are studying for my physics AP (it's tomorrow), reading a book I'm supposed to have two thirds of done (which I just today downloaded... without a tablet to actually read it on), and studying for my micro AP (it's t...

Knowing when to stop
I'm starting to think that most people in this world can be placed under two general categories: people who rely on crutches as a part of everyday life in order to function (dailies), and people who binge in order to escape some kind of trigger (bingies). I...

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...

Avoiding physics with a commencement speech and growing pains
So, I'm avoiding doing physics because it's bothering me and I don't feel like thinking about it, so I returned to a piece we were assigned to do in AP Lang before break started. It was to write a commencement speech to the 2014 graduates of our elementary ...

And I think this is the moment
when I realized I can't stop. [warning... this is all really incoherent, but I wrote it spur-of-the-moment, so forgive me.] As much as this year has killed me, and as much as I've hated the fact that there have been not one, not two, but at least five hell ...
