Thoughts from a Temporary Cat Lady

By: Gabriela Yareliz Where I am staying, there is a little cat that is afraid of many things. Any sudden movement, and she disappears. I suppose many past, bad experiences brought her to her nervous state. So now, even though she is safe, she is still afraid. I was talking to the cat while IContinue reading “Thoughts from a Temporary Cat Lady”

The Sequel Begins

By: Gabriela Yareliz Changes are interesting, and they are particularly interesting when they are a more “permanent” kind of change. This summer was great (I have so many photos and insights to share post-bar exam; I promise, it’s coming soon). Summer is about to conclude with the bar exam. I still think of the yearContinue reading “The Sequel Begins”

This Changing World: July 19, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz The world keeps spinning and changing. MAC announced it will launch the Selena (Quintanilla) line in 2016.

Yesterday, I was deeply moved by a verse in scripture that I have read manyContinue reading “No Fear”

On the Road (a non-Kerouac version)

       “But why think about that when all the golden lands ahead of you and all kinds of unforseen events wait lurking to surprise you and make you glad you’re alive to see?” Jack Kerouac, On the Road By: Gabriela Yareliz Don’t worry. I won’t start talking about how I saw God on the roadContinue reading “On the Road (a non-Kerouac version)”

Road Trip

By: Gabriela Yareliz The family is going on a road trip, and naturally, I am coming along– bar books, camera and all. It will be quite the adventure. By the end of the summer, I will have probably visited at least eight states (?), with my departure and destination points being the same. Life isContinue reading “Road Trip”
