Even if my Mexican, primarily Spanish speaking, mother had taken the time to sit me down at age 9 for the flowery, glittery womanhood speech… It would not have prepared me for the shit show that I find myself navigating through today. Literally none of it would have been relative to my life. She definitely would have emphasized the need to be the ideal mother and wife.

Spring is here! The sun is shining, it's finally getting warm, and the flowers are blooming! I know the start of this post sounds like I really enjoy spring, but the truth is, I hate it. Every time someone asks, "what's your favorite season?" almost everyone says spring. Personally, I can't seem to understand why. Yes, the flowers are beautiful, but what the flowers bring with them, I hate. The pollen is outrageous and like a lot of people, I'm allergic. I can't breathe and my eye itch so bad they end up swelling so bad I can't see anymore. Not to mention all the bugs that start coming out during this time!

This piece is for you.
