Mabuhay readers, alam mo kung anong oras na? October is Filipino-American History Month. While I would like to just share a few Filipino brands like my last post for Hispanic Heritage Month, since it is my… community, this would just not be the blog of me and my heated aries self if I did not Get Into It. Sight Maybe it would’ve been different if … Continue reading Filipino-American History Month
Hi readers, did your September fly by? September 15th marked the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month in the United States which celebrates the contributions and culture of Hispanic and Latino Americans. It runs until October 15th. So it seemed a great reason for another installment of sharing some great finds from Shop Latinx! Shop Latinx is an online directory featuring independent businesses with Latinx owners. … Continue reading Happy Hispanic Heritage Month!

Hi followers, are you celebrating this month? We’re in the middle of LGBT Pride Month, a time in particular for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and trans community to celebrate diverse sexual orientations and genders. June was chosen to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots which is said to have sparked LGBT activism in the United States. While there is certainly time and cause for cheer, we’d be … Continue reading Blogger Bills: Happy Pride Month!
Following the US 2016 election which gave us President Trump, there seemed to be a frenzy of reporters clamoring to share his supporters’ stories. Sam Bee and Full Frontal beat me at covering this biased narrative of poor, rural whites voting out of “economic anxiety.” Bee also brought up the point that– wait for it– “working class” is not synonymous with white! At first I … Continue reading Is My Mom Not Economically Anxious?
Hello readers, how are your sinuses? Last year I bought myself Blackwater as a belated birthday present and have only recently gotten around to it. I love learning, but it takes me 100 years to read non-fiction. One reason is because I feel like I should record or memorize everything. That may be futile, but at least with a blog, I’ve a searchable way to revisit what … Continue reading Book Club? with Blackwater
Hello readers, are you keeping dry? One thing I’ve noticed bloggers/influencers painted as (and I can’t say I haven’t thought it myself) is vapid or at least not utilizing any massive platform for action more meaningful. It’s understandable– many blog for business and wouldn’t want to alienate any potential customers. So it’s refreshing and inspiring to see women who haven’t or don’t usually talk about … Continue reading Whitewashing Feminism
Heya pals, give up your resolutions yet? 😅 Perhaps I should start a series on the things I find at 4am. I wrote about The Visit, and today I want to share a short documentary called Scandalize My Name. Although the US allied with the Soviet Union in WWII, soon afterwards, we decided that communists can’t sit with us. McCarthyism became the witch hunt of the times. … Continue reading Scandalize My Name
Hello buds, are you celebrating a holiday this week? I’m not a big Thanksgiving person, but it does seem to be getting more festive as people are putting up wreaths and lights, so I’ll try to keep this post short and sweet. Whether you’re eating turkey tomorrow, celebrating something soon, or supporting Native American Heritage Month, it may very well require the green stuff. No, not a … Continue reading Offset Holiday Costs with SurveySavvy
Hurricane Irma was an incredibly intense and large storm that broke all kinds of records. Some people may envy the year-long warm weather and sunshine of tropical regions, but it does have a price. I’ve lived in Florida all my life and have dealt with my fair share of hurricanes, but this is the first time that I’ve ever went 3 days without power. And … Continue reading Hurricane Irma
