Figuring It Out and the Talented Triplet

“The joy of writing. A chance to make things stay. A revenge of a mortal hand.” Wistawa Szymborska, “The Joy of Writing” [That quote has nothing to do with this post. I just liked it a lot. Sue me. (Not literally– but if you do, joke is on you).] By: Gabriela Yareliz Here we are,Continue reading “Figuring It Out and the Talented Triplet”

Gonna Get Me A Kilt

By: Gabriela Yareliz Guys, I saw a trailer for a TV show on Starz the other day, and it stayed on my mind. It felt fun and exciting and looked like life. (Something that feels a bit foreign to those of us who have been locked up in our rooms like the girl from TangledContinue reading “Gonna Get Me A Kilt”

Sipping on Chamomile

By: Gabriela Yareliz Alright, alright, alright (even though in journalism school they teach you it should always be “all right”). Our last musical-journey-to-Valentine’s-Day posts were heavy. I know. It’s not all sad and heavy, though. No. We’re going into a more fun territory today. We are looking at No Doubt’s “Hey Baby.” First of all,Continue reading “Sipping on Chamomile”

I can’t be the only one. The New Yorker published a funContinue reading “The Adventures We’ll Go On”

Light Chaser

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” Plato By: Gabriela Yareliz As you may have read, yesterday I had a fun field trip outing. What you did not read was that it was complete with me notContinue reading “Light Chaser”

Paper Doll

By: Gabriela Yareliz Today, I ventured out of my house and had hit 8k steps before 4 pm. I was exhausted. (I am so out of shape). Mind you, many of those steps were literal steps on a staircase.
