Un Thanksgiving

Como ya deben saber, en los EEUU se celebra Thanksgiving (o el Día de Acción de Gracias, como le pusieron los hispanos que viven acá). Es una celebración tradicional en la cual la familia se reúne a compartir una cena maravillosa. Desde que nos mudamos a los Estados Unidos, aceptamos esta tradición como una nuestra y siempre celebramos Thanksgiving. 

Este año, tuvimos la suerte de estar con nuestros abuelos para este día, cosa que sucede rara vez si vivís tan lejos (exactamente 7344 kilómetros). La tradición es que tenés que decir, o por lo menos pensar, en las cosas que agradecés. Fue uno de los mejores años, la pasamos re bien, y obviamente estaba muy agradecida que pudieron estar con nosotros.

Children's Television

This is an investigative story I did about television and children.

Let's face it, we let little kids watch what they really shouldn't be watching... But it's so hard because most of the things adults want to watch is bad for kids anyways! So what do you do? I personally am not a mom yet, but my little brother is 11 and he watches most of the things I like to watch... bad words included.
Do you think the media takes away our childhood sometimes? I certainly think it could...

Check it out!

El Mundo

I'm happy to finally be starting this blog that I've been meaning to start for much too long now.
I feel that there are so many things that we all have to share, professional and personal, little and small.
I thought it would be proper, then, to begin with one of my favorite short stories of all time.
It's called "El Mundo" de Eduardo Galleano, a Uruguayan writer.
So inspiring. The other day, my closest friends and I read this story together. I knew that I'd always remember it, and the feeling of inspiration and warmth that it brings to it's lucky listener.
