Creative Blogger Award

f9f3e5d2094eb78304a069b6837bc21e

I spent the last days in a disturbingly boring routine.  I don’t mind having routines, as long as they keep me genuinely occupied.  That has not happened lately: I keep myself busy but I am not busy in the brain.

My dear friend Naelle from De.Lirium has brought me back to my blog.  I told her, and I told myself, that I was going to blog more (I really should, 100%), but I’m only doing it sporadically.  However, here I am again, because she nominated me to the Creative Blogger Award!

The rules are:

  • Nominate (5?) blogs
  • Thank and post the link to the blog that nominated you
  • Share 5 facts about yourself to your readers
  • Notify the bloggers that you nominated for the award
  • Pass the rules onto them

Ink On Paper, Ink On Skin: an Update

Six months have passed since my last post.  Honestly, I didn’t have time to think about writing a blog post because my brain was busy—and I mean real busy.  Most of those months were absorbed by my thesis—writing, proofreading, editing, adding pictures, and formatting the manuscript to be printed.  I’m proud to say that I defended it on May 19th and passed with an outstanding grade!

My graduation ceremony was on June 17th; first graduation ceremony I attend to since high school.  It was weird but pleasant at the same time.

2014: Year Summary

I used to write a summary of the passing year around this time. I don’t remember if I did it last year—if I did, I don’t remember where I kept it or if I posted it online. Usually I blogged about the year’s end when I had an active Livejournal account, where people read my babbles, rambles, and teen thoughts… and where/when I didn’t care if people knew about me—now I find it quite exposing. However, I am writing this because I want to remember. I could write it in paper but I’m typing it here. I find it easier to connect with my brain if I type (with a serif font) instead of exercising my hand with a pen. Continue reading

Descarga, versión feminismo

Esta semana ha sido una (más) de titulares bochornosos en uno de los periódicos locales de este país en donde vivo—por desgracia.  En dos días, las publicaciones cibernéticas recorrieron el cuerpo de la mujer tal cual pieza inmobiliaria de Ikea.  La primera que me causó una reacción de ácido en los ojos se enfoca en la cara: Tres jóvenes boricuas entre las 50 caras más lindas del Congreso; la segundo en el cuerpo: Famosas que se han quedado desnudas en público; y la tercera en esa área “misteriosa” que no se menciona: Quiero una mujer que no esté usada.  En estos momentos de mi vida, prefiero pasar la mirada por los titulares sin leer la noticia.  Mi estabilidad—mental y emocional—es más importante que la opinión genérica de una sociedad superficial y patriarcal como ésta.

Aun mirando sólo los titulares y las fotos que los acompañan en las redes sociales, me pregunto cuánto tiempo más falta para que ocurra un cambio, aunque sea mínimo, en el modo de pensar de la gente; o cuándo se va a dejar de perpetuar la importancia de lo físico, el estándar de belleza, frente a la inteligencia y a lo que uno es capaz de hacer como individuo; o cuándo—aun entre personas brillantes—se va a mirar al sexo femenino y al feminismo como algo positivo y no como el cuco, el monstruo, el otro, lo débil, lo incapaz.

Llegar a este estado en esta reflexión me incomoda porque he notado cómo el feminismo se ha expandido pero todavía existen restricciones—sociales y autoimpuestas.  Continue reading

I was nominated by my sister, Yaya Morghulis!

Brief history of the Liebster Award:

The idea of the Liebster Award is to introduce newer blogs (with less than 200 Bloglovin’ Followers) to a wider audience, and give the bloggers a chance to share something about themselves.  Continue reading
