I went to art school, and I wish that meant I made art as often as
that sounds, but I'm trying. I'm passionate about being Latina, and
all things Latin American, usually including it's men haha.
I've gone back and forth with this thing, and I'm at a point where
I've learned not to expect much from OKC. I've always hated online
shopping after all.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work at a pre-school. Kids are
I'm trying really hard to make and think about art.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Giving advice. Making food. Making art. Being sarcastic. Tanning,
I'm really, really good at that. I love dancing, but I don't know
how good I am at it. Learning how to twerk is one of the hardest
things I've ever done.
The first things people usually notice about me

Italian movies too.
TV: Arrested Development. Parks and Rec. Breaking Bad. Mad Men
(full on lady crush for both Joan and Peggy). Game of Thrones.

Q. Devendra Banhart. Los Fabulosos Cadillacs. Soda Stereo. Helado

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Art, grad school, feminism, music, social justice, racial and
cultural insensitivity, and whether or not I want to be that
colored person to call someone out on their ignorance.
How some people weren't raised with common courtesy.
What's up with the cute guys that rate me but never write me.
How amazing language is, and how sometimes I can express myself in
Spanish in a way I sometimes can't do in English.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
(not!) Working, babysitting, drinking, or at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes, I wish my butt wasn't such a point of interest, but then
