Going Back to School

IMG_1345.JPG

I have lately been plagued by a desire to go back to school. I always wanted to be a lawyer and I had taken all the steps necessary to achieve that goal. My papers and test scores have been ready for years, all my lazy butt had to do was actually apply to the law schools I desired to attend.

Now the fire has been lit under me, and my first application is ready to be submitted and considered for the term commencing Spring 2015. I’m scared and excited about what’s in store for me. I’ve been out of school for almost ten (10) years now, but with a few refresher courses I should be good as new.

IMG_1349.JPG

To ease me back into school life and activities, I signed up for a free online course offered at John Jay College. So far, I’ve been doing good in the course, especially since group activities are not required and my grade will solely depend on my work and commitment to the course.

Have you gone back to school after a long break?

Allstate Purple Purse: Pass It On Against Domestic Violence

pass it on
This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and The Allstate Foundation.

October is one of my favorite months because of the awesome weather and of course the best holiday ever, Halloween. October is also known for being breast cancer awareness month and this usually takes center stage in all media outlets, but October is also Domestic Violence Awareness month. Domestic violence is an issue that impacts millions, but few talk about it. Domestic violence affects one in four women in their lifetime – that’s more women than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined. The numbers are staggering and make you wonder how many of the people who walk in front of you everyday are victims of domestic violence. I was in that boat for a while, and being Boricua…los trapos sucios se dejan en la casa (dirty laundry stays at home). I never spoke about the abuse I was going through with my oldest daughter’s father. At the time, I did not know he had a heroin addiction and the drug use would cause him to lash out on me and it did not start immediately. No one in my family knew what I was going through and I kept hidden in my home, rarely inviting any one over out of fear that another episode would erupt between us. I was very sheltered and kept it that was for years.

virtual code spanish

A majority of Americans agree that domestic violence is tough to talk about. More than one-third of Americans have never discussed the issue with family or friends and Purple Purse provides a conversation starter. Purple Purse helps people carry on conversations and pass information about domestic violence and financial abuse by placing the power directly into people’s hands with a purple purse. Lacking financial knowledge and resources is the number one indicator of whether a domestic violence victim will stay, leave or return to an abusive relationship. For every purple purse passed through the end of October, The Allstate Foundation will donate $5 to YWCA. We’ll give up to $350,000 for programs aimed to help domestic violence survivors and stop the cycle of abuse.

virtual code english

Together we can make a difference. I know if their were more women talking about their situation, I would’ve been more open to talk about what I was going through. I was scared and at one point felt like no one understood what I was going through. As a Boricua single mother, we are taught to suck it up and handle whatever comes our way in relationships and marriage. there’s still a stigma on the single Latina mom that does not have her “partner” with her. Many times I still get asked what did I do to cause the violence. Blame is still placed on women, at least in my community it is. Lets help spread the word and awareness on domestic violence. Make sure you visit Purple Purse and enter the above code and while you are there get more information on domestic violence awareness and prevention.

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy.’ They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

Broadway Week is Back: 2-for-1 Tickets on Select Shows

BWF13_eblast_1a_03

Broadway week is back in New York City from September 2 – 15 and many shows are available for all ages. School starts on September 9, so this great deal makes for either a nice back to school outing for the kids, or a celebration for the parents new found freedom. Here is the list of shows available:

These are some awesome shows, and their are about 11 shows I want to see off the list. I wish I could afford to go, but my house comes first and I refuse to go more time out of my house because of the Hurricane. Make sure you get your tickets now, because they are sure to go fast.

***I still have no roof on my house and I’m looking for people to donate any leftover roofing materials you may have. I honestly don’t care if they match in color, I only care about having a roof . CONTACT ME for information on where to send the materials. Thank you for taking the time to read this and other things on my blog.***

WOW……Outstanding Solo Performance

forgve fatherAs  I was looking for things to read online, I came across a small announcement about Latino actors receiving recognition for their artistic work. I began reading the list, I was shocked by one name. Jose Roldan Jr. Imagine my surprise to see that my prom king is getting an award for his outstanding solo performance in Father Forgive Me For I have Sinned from the Hispanic Organization of Latino Actors. I have yet to see his show because I still have no roof on my house since the hurricane and I want to fix my house, but it makes me proud to know my fellow high school classmates are making it big in their careers. Of course the biggest act to come out of our high school has been Aventura (so nasty…lol), but Jose is making a huge name for himself and I cant’ wait for his new projects soon to come.

jrjIf you would like to catch his performance, there is one scheduled for November at Lehman College in the Bronx. With this new award, tickets are bound to sell out quickly, so make sure you make your reservations today before it’s too late.
