Thoughtful Thursday: Nighttime

May 23, 2019

The sun sets behind the horizon leaving the sky with the darkness of the night; the world changes. When I see the stars and the glow of the moonlight, I see the time of the lights. The city lights illuminate the night sky. Old convenience stores and gas stations emit their neon glow. The light post...

Morning 1 : I wake up every morning and like to get ready for school while listening to music. It was quite difficult not having my cellphone readily available by my side to play music. I also had to deal with the realization of not having a phone for the entirety of the day, which is must longer and...

The 23rd Annual photography exhibition for Vidal M Trevino School of Communications and Fine Arts took place Friday, May 3, 2019. I have always loved photography and art galleries. I had attended the 2018 exhibit my sophomore year when my photography was placed on display for my journalism course. I had absolutely enjoyed the exhibit and enjoyed my time observing the art. The 2019 exhibit was no different. My junior year photography consisted of those above. This exhibition was utter perfection as all the colors blend...

I’ve always enjoyed listening to music. It is one of the guaranteed hobbies I will always have. I prefer the sound of music blasting from my phone’s speaker rather than the empty silence. Every moment I ask myself: “What do I feel like listening too?” “Am I looking for relaxing music or...

I love the before-concert-drive. Sitting in the car while looking outside, a playlist of the band you’re going to see playing in the background is the best part of the journey.  We’re always told to fall asleep and take and nap. Something I’ve always found so difficult to do when I’m so exc...

Walking to class is a simple task. I find it is much more than packing your things and moving on to your next block. It’s time for contemplation, listening to music, and mentally preparing yourself for your next class. I accomplish so much when I walk to class. I plan my day ahead, review what was...

Thoughtful Thursday: Dreams

Dreams are a beautifully strange occurrence in our sleep. Dreams take us to an alternative reality in our own conscience. It’s a place where we can float in the air, gravity not able to pull us down. They are mysterious messages of the mind leaving us trying to decipher everything we witnessed in our...

Thoughtful Thursday: Physically tired, mentally wired

November 15, 2018

My family and I are always buzzing with mental energy. Never is the switch flipped off. We can be exhausted after a tough day but are still full of mental energy. My mother, brother, and I were once sitting on the couch on a Friday night. All of us were physically drained from the week. Regardless of...
