September’s Quote of the Month

“I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.” —Louisa May Alcott, Little Women


August Reads: CATCHER IN THE RYE by J. D. Salinger

To me, CATCHER IN THE RYE isn’t angry at all. It’s just sad. Holden is both too old for his age and too young. He’s too old for his peers and he desperately wants to stay a little kid so he doesn’t get phony, either. It’s a story of a boy who desperately wants to find some realness in this world, who feels stuck in place when all he wants to do is move.

Growing Up White

Now, at eighteen years old, I’m still trying to figure out where that leaves me. I’m not white. But I don’t feel Latina, either. I toe the line between two ethnicities and don’t feel entirely comfortable in either.

July Watches: Brooklyn Nine-Nine

I’ve never binge-watched a show before, but I finished all four seasons of Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Netflix within about a month (which is a little shameful looking back on it). I’ve never really gravitated towards comedies, but Brooklyn was perfect for me. It’s not a masterpiece by a long shot, but it makes me laugh and doesn’t pull any punches.
