21 Years Later Her Music Still Lives....

Image
Today marks the 21st anniversary of the death of  the most talented and beautiful Selena Quintanilla. Even after so many years, Selena's music is still making it big in the Latin music industry. She might not be here physically but her memory forever stays with us, her fans.

Selena Quintanilla was known to be the "Queen of Tejano," a type of music that was very popular throughout southern Texas. Selena was born on April 16, 1971 in Lake Jackson, Texas and made her recording debut in the 80s', where later she became an award-winning recording artist in the Latin music. She has popular albums such as Amor Prohibido and Dreaming of You. It was around the age of 9 when Selena's father discovered her talent for singing. He than formed a band where Selena was the main singer, her brother A.B. Quintanilla on the bass and her sister Suzette Quintanilla on drums. The group became Los Dinos, which was a band that Abraham Quintanilla, Selena's father, was in the 1950s a…

It's official, Spring Break has come to an end....sadly but surely. I honestly was looking forward to being able to clear half of my to do list and catching up on some Z's but of course that wasn't the case. Other important things came up that took a great amount of my time and energy but I enjoyed it. Things such as opportunities, which are not always offered so when you get the chance, take it! I was also able to spend some quality time with my family and even my little brother came to visit for a couple of days. Y claro, comi muy bien....mami y papi made some tamales de puerco con chile rojo.

Spring Break flew on by and now to get back to focusing on finishing up the semester and giving it my all. I can honestly say that my count down has officially started, seven more weeks until the summer break! I would be much more excited to say that I'm also graduating in seven weeks but that isn't the case. Of course I wasn't able to get into two of the courses I need …

I Can't

So it has come to my attention that I'm very picky when it comes to guys. Well than again, who isn't? Many say it's all about the inside, don't go for the looks and blah, blah, blah. Well it's not that I'm over looking that or say it's wrong but I have certain outlooks about ''my dude.'' So I have decided to name some of the turn-offs that I have towards those guys I thought were cute but are no longer so attractive to me because of physical outlooks.

First of all, I have nothing against a guy that is well-groomed, the more the better honey boo boo. Pero if his eyebrows look better than mine than there is a problem. I'm not going to lie, I love to have my eyebrows on point of course, but if my dude is going to have his better than mine, I can't. I really don't have an explanation about why this is but it's a turn-off for me.

Since I'm talking about well-groomed, I will have to say that the next turn-off is body odor. The …

February Favorites

What a better way to start March by sharing my favorites of February! I feel that there were many things that I felt that I constantly had to have! It was the type que esta bien ricoooo, que tienes que tener MAS porque una vez no lo hace. Most of these items are just random things nothing special or out of the ordinary...so here goes. So the first item on my list would have to be the Birthday Cake Shake from Braum's. Ay Dios Mio, it will change your life, no doubt! It's a sugar rush of sweetness with chunks of birthday cake. I freaking love cake y mas si es birthday cake pero ahora en helado? OMG, no pues wow! I honestly went in today to actually buy the ice cream but of course they were out so it might just be a popular item but not sure.
The next item is my Cake Batter Chap Stick! When I first saw it at Wal-Mart I was like no freaking way!! I sure did buy it and it was only 99 cents! I doesn't taste anything like birthday cake for those that care to know but it smells so…

That Trip to the Funeral Home. . .

"Death is important to those that have to go through it," B. Matthews

Well tonight I had a class field trip to a funeral home and it wasn't so bad. You're probably thinking, who in the world calls visiting a funeral home a field trip? Well that is what it said on the syllabus....so I'm just going with it. When I first entered the funeral home, I felt this tension in my body where I became very uncomfortable being there. Once the rest of my classmates showed up, the owner Barbara Matthews went ahead and presented herself. By this point I totally had forgotten we were in a funeral home and felt no tension. Mrs. Matthews provided a great amount of information that I had never known about funeral services but than again I had never looked into it.

Before this visit I never really showed an appreciate to the people that manage the funeral services. In the past I have attended different funerals, nothing to be proud of but I have always felt that the funeral services peo…
