Having to choose between horchata & agua de jamaica is always the hardest decision

Never forget
When your classmates wrinkled their noses at the scent of your lunch still lingering on your clothes,
Even though their ancestors had conquered half the world in search of the spices you ate.

Never forget
How they jeered at your mother’s bindi, making crude jokes about how ridiculous it looked on her,
And after ten years, how they all wore the exact same ornament on their own foreheads to keep up with the current trends.

Never forget
When they repeatedly stumbled over the sharp letters which formed your name, forcing you to repeat yourself several times before giving up;
Only to have those very letters tattooed on their own flesh, in a language they do not comprehend.

Always remember
Your culture belongs to you,
Not to them.

This is a great comeback for all of that “I don’t see race.” BS

AND YOU BENEFIT FROM IT EVERY DAY
When did loving yourself
become so rare, that it’s
revolutionary to do so?

Helping first year students move in

I’ve been thinking a lot about my undergrad experience and wondering how things could have been different. One thing I wish someone would have told me was to stick to the sciences. Ain’t nothing more hardcore than a xicana scientist.

Being an adult is realizing that $5,000 is a lot of money to owe and very little money to own.

don’t you dare mistake my anxiety reactions as an inability to cope.
