Please, Allow Me to Interrupt You

“No puedo.” I shook my head at my Spanish professor. Her lime-green fuzzy jacket seemed to mock the cold Florida weather. She smiled at me as if she found my self-doubt charming. I looked down at my desk and mumbled to myself “this is going to be terrible.” A classmate behind me who spoke Spanish as her first language rubbed my shoulder and said “you’re goin...

On days like this, I feel a lot like Alice in Wonderland. Not because I’ve tumbled down a rabbit hole to anywhere particularly wondrous or magical,...

As one person out of more than 7 billion, living within the grinds of a world driven by expansive, complex political and cultural machines, it often feels like there are very few things that we can control. Amidst all of this, the one thing that we have full power over is our expression. Our words. Our art. Our protests. The freedom of expression gives individuals...

Other People’s Success is Not Your Failure

The world today is a messy, convoluted, discombobulating tidal wave of social media. The average person can hardly get through a day without the barrage of other people’s lives and opinions and profanity smacking them in the face. I go on Facebook to play mind numbing games and end up spending an hour scrolling through other people’s stress or obnoxiously prolific success...

When the regular season came to a close in the NFL, so did the season for the Jacksonville Jaguars. After another disappointing season, one in which the Jags were only able to muster 3 victories all season, the boys in teal packed up their lockers, wondering what the future would hold for them. One person who didn’t last long was offensive coordinator, Jedd Fisch. In...

Ginormous buildings, wide asphalt roads, light-skinned people, dark-skinned people, and people of mixed complexion exuding American smiles were all I could see at every turn. No more bamboo-thatched huts, concrete-tarred roads or Ghanaian smiles. It was all about “The Benjamins.” "Ha! Welcome to America!!" I shouted as I left Jacksonville International Airport esc...

As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, some are headed home to relatives or planning to spend time with friends. Thanksgiving is a time to be with loved ones and catch up. It is also a time when you don't have to worry about how much you eat; there is traditionally a big meal full of favorites such as mac and cheese, green beans, baked beans, turkey, honey glazed ham and...

The Jags had a much needed bye this week and I know what you’re thinking, “Finally the Jags won’t be in the headlines this week for being losers.” Wrong! Dwayne Gratz, the defensive back who was selected in the third round of last year’s draft, was arrested in Miami on two misdemeanor counts of disorderly intoxication and trespassing after attempting to pay for...

The Oatmeal in Your Bathroom Drawers

My dad found oatmeal in my bathroom drawer. He called me. I was a freshman at the time. I don’t remember where I was. I was probably walking the valley thinking, “I’m too young to be huffing and puffing up these steps” when I saw padre’s number appear on my phone. Incoming call. “Hello?” “Gabi?” “Yeah.” “You know you have oatmeal in your...

I know. It’s a romantic image. Deep in the depths of a dim, fluorescent-lit library, nestled between a tower of Red Bull cans and class notes, the noble college student pores over a stack of tearstained textbooks at 4 a.m. The clock ticks and fingers race against the keys of a laptop computer until, just in the knick-of-time, our weary-eyed scholar slams the books...
