Decade in Review 2009-2019: Being Gabriela

By: Gabriela Yareliz I thought it would be fun to briefly take a short walk through this past decade to highlight some memories that helped make me, me. I started this blog at the Marston Science Library at the University of Florida. I was probably wearing corduroy pants and a shirt someone passed down toContinue reading “Decade in Review 2009-2019: Being Gabriela”

Gainesville

By: Gabriela Yareliz I am so proud of how the city of Gainesville and the University of Florida handled Richard Spencer’s visit. The diverse and inclusive community protested and made his visit pointless, nonviolent (with the exception of some minor injuries), and he was pretty much hostile the entire time. He ended his speech earlyContinue reading “Gainesville”

Erin Andrews

By: Gabriela Yareliz Can we take a minute and talk about Erin Andrews? She is fantastic. She was born on the same day as me (that’s not why she is fantastic, but I think it’s pretty cool). She is a fellow University of Florida College of Journalism graduate. Florida girl. She also has made it in anContinue reading “Erin Andrews”

Big rivalry; it’s a big deal. I am super excited for the Gators! So far, they are kicking some serious, LSU butt. I am listening toContinue reading “Go Gators!”

A Scandalous Gabby & Feisty Felicia Playlist II

Then By: Gabriela Yareliz ft. Feisty Feliz Here are the college days. We walked around UF, I laid on benches on grassy lawns, Fel had cool labs, and I got to chase people down for articles. I hung out at her food engineering lab and interviewed every international student there for a feature piece. WeContinue reading “A Scandalous Gabby & Feisty Felicia Playlist II”

Florida Girl

By: Gabriela Yareliz I heard this song and it made me miss Florida so badly. I mean, I already miss Florida like crazy, but this song did it. It is like the soundtrack to my days driving with my windows down through country roads. I can’t wait to be home. This song is: driving throughContinue reading “Florida Girl”
