On love and the day I quoted Tupac

Part II of On love and the impulsive girl I don't have a type, at least I don't think so. But taking inventory of the men who've been in my life, I'd say they were all relatively good looking, funny, and full of spirit and life. So when, after an almost three-year hiatus from dating… Continue reading On love and the day I quoted Tupac

On love and the impulsive girl…

I’m impulsive; extremely so. I am the person they target when they place those little “last minute” items by store registers. I fall for it almost every single time. I’d say that 99% of the time I embrace my impulsive nature and see it as one of my most endearing qualities. It’s what helped me… Continue reading On love and the impulsive girl…

F*ck the glass slipper! It’s all about the purple suede stilettos

I almost typed the title of this post without the asterik, but figured I'd ease into the profanity on this blog. As I work to develop my writing voice I have to be authentic and the authentic me swears. Sometimes a lot. And as a good friend suggested when we discussed my blog, my blog… Continue reading F*ck the glass slipper! It’s all about the purple suede stilettos

My very proper Mom recently told me that being married was overrated and I should just find someone—anyone—to father her unborn grandchildren. “I’m not getting any younger and neither are you!” may have been her exact words. As I stated in a past blog, La anti-Latina, I am an anomaly; a single, childless Latina in her… Continue reading Haven’t been invited to a baby shower in a while. Was it something I said?

Dating: Is this really all there is?

This was originally posted on an old blog back in October 2008. Most still holds true... It was Crosstown Classic weekend and I was at a bar with some friends. It was crowded, everyone was in a good mood. Cubs and Sox fans were giving each other a hard time, but all in fun. I… Continue reading Dating: Is this really all there is?

Baby(less) Mama Drama- The Prequel(?)

My latest Being Latino post titled Baby(less) Mama Drama (thanks for help w/the title LR) is about not being a mom, or parent in general, in a world full of parents.  I mentioned my Mom's new outlook on the whole marriage before babies thing. I remember clearly when my younger sister and I were in… Continue reading Baby(less) Mama Drama- The Prequel(?)

Confession time…

I just wrote a blog for Being Latino titled La anti-Latina.  A humorous (?) look at my struggles as the 'atypical' Latina.  Not hours after it posted I saw that a childhood friend (now acquaintance) changed her profile picture on Facebook. It's a beautiful photo meant to show off her, obviously, late-stage pregnancy. She's older… Continue reading Confession time…
