Songs, soup and the girls in the polos

By: Gabriela Yareliz Call me an idiot, but yesterday I prepared some Campbell’s soup for myself. Tomato. “Umm-umm good”? Not really. I forgot to add the can of water and let me tell you, that soup is jacked up with so much sodium and sugar. It was disgusting. I realized my mistake but then itContinue reading “Songs, soup and the girls in the polos”

/This one is for the boys in the polos/

By: Gabriela Yareliz So, it is Wednesday. It’s the middle of crunch time (otherwise known as the week). Some are sick, others delirious, and others- just fine. So this is what has been going down: [a] Yesterday, I saw a professor with small, round, burgundy glasses. He looked so classic.

Real Life Sentiment Part II

By: Gabriela Yareliz So, what did happen on that fateful day that I was supposed to cover the domino tournament? This is a delayed update, partly because I had to get over the trauma and rage of the whole deal.

Love Actually

By: Gabriela Yareliz I really love this love story from Love Actually (no pun intended). It always makes me smile. Love is strange. Does it creep up on us? Are there different types of love?

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s day is approaching. I thought I’d rewind the clock. Before there were roses, diamonds, and for some, disappointments, there were the paper bags that everyone would prepare. Teachers looked on cringing as we made a mess with glue and glitter. The pink and red construction paper grew thin and wet with excessive glue. As weContinue reading “Valentine’s Day”

What is There to Read?

  When books become shallow and unworthy of time. By: Gabriela Yareliz Gonzalez       So I was reading in the October 19, 2009 New Yorker Magazine, the article/essay by Rebecca Mead about Alloy Entertainment books.
