Stuck.

“Change your mind, change your life,” they say. “The only way out is in.” Maybe that’s what I’m afraid of.   So, I’ve been resisting life lately. Most likely because I have no major hurdle to distract me or a “next” that’s pre-planned [other than the whole get-a-job-and-make-sure-I’m-employed thing, but ya know, after what I’ve [...]

If you won’t have us…

*This reflection was written as a direct response to anti-immigrant and anti-Latinx ideologies spread by recent (and, if we're being honest with ourselves, not-so-recent) political and national events.

Cognitive Dissonance — or, remind me who I am

I've been having this struggle lately (/slash/ not-so-lately) and I was thinking maybe you've been there too. Or maybe you'll be there someday. Or maybe you've seen someone who's been there. Or...whatever, the point is I asked myself, what's the best thing to do when I'm struggling a bit? explore, of course. sooo....shall we? [and [...]
