Going Home

By: Gabriela Yareliz I am cominggg… It has not been the typical holiday travel whirlwind. Thank God. I took a train to where my shuttle was supposed to pick me up. It never came. Instead, a black car came to pick me up. A limo service. Jesus does it again. All right, I’ll take it,Continue reading “Going Home”

Monday Inspiration: June 22, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz I saw the bar exam countdown calendar. Thirty-something days left. I shuddered. This is insane; the way time has run away, kidnapping our summer. For those still in law school doing internships, their internships are halfway done. It’s that time in the summer when exhaustion settles into numbness, and even Shakespeare inContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: June 22, 2015”

Soul Structure

By: Gabriela Yareliz I live in a wilderness that is quietly loud. And while I may not rest here forever, I carry the wild to my every endeavor. It’s simplicity mixed with what is natural; mixed with extravagant colors and memorable fragrances. It’s peace, mixed with hope and belief. It’s miles and miles of freedomContinue reading “Soul Structure”

Sunday Girl: February 22, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz Back-to-work Sunday. I’m Florida dreamin’ and listening to Jake Miller (fellow Floridian) while getting stuff done. Soundtrack: India won the match against South Africa yesterday. It was greatness. When I saw the photo of the team players together in their blue and orange uniforms, it brought back memories from my Gator CricketContinue reading “Sunday Girl: February 22, 2015”

Love Shoutout: La Familia

By: Gabriela Yareliz A snippet of me being with the people I love the most, my family. This one goes out to the people who make my eyes sparkle; the people God has gifted to me as my home. We are the best team. We are overcomers, comedians, and we walk each day together. IContinue reading “Love Shoutout: La Familia”

Left My Heart in Cedar Key

Photos and commentary by: Gabriela Yareliz We started 2015 with a little trip to Cedar Key. I love that place. Sea shell heaven. I am ever the nosy one. Between the pubs on C Street. Nature’s many shades. Gray glitter. Because in Florida, you don’t have to wear shoes. XOXO from the fishing pier andContinue reading “Left My Heart in Cedar Key”

If there is a place I am missing, it’s home. Go Gators! “There is nothing eleven can’t do with 90,000 standing behind them”-Florida Football Today is theĀ Florida v. LSU game. Big rivalry; it’s a big deal. I am super excited for the Gators! So far, they areĀ kicking some serious, LSU butt. I am listening toContinue reading “Go Gators!”

An Ode to Summer

By: Gabriela Yareliz SUMMER IN THE CITY [Inspired by: New York City] Despite my autumn fever, yesterday’s 68-degree morning, and leaving the house with a jacket today, it is still officially a tourist-crowded-sidewalk NYC summer. People’s addiction to ice cream does not seem to be waning. I am slightly traumatized from last winter, and IContinue reading “An Ode to Summer”

The Florida Lifestyle

By: Gabriela Yareliz Every state has a different vibe and stereotype, right? I haven’t fully discovered New York’s identity. I’ve discovered New York City’s identity, but not the state’s. I need to spend more time outside of the city. But Florida, I know Florida well. I stood many hours sweating at bus stops on UniversityContinue reading “The Florida Lifestyle”

This Week’s Picks: October 20, 2013/ Women’s Issues

By: Gabriela Yareliz Aloha! Man, it’s crispy outside! Today, I am staying in to hibernate. Okay, it’s not that cold, but still–why leave the house if you don’t have to? Yesterday, I was rocking the tights. Yes. We are there. I HATE TIGHTS. I miss Florida so much. If this were Florida, we would allContinue reading “This Week’s Picks: October 20, 2013/ Women’s Issues”
