Women’s History Month Superheroine Spotlight: Wonder Woman

Journey Into Awesome

Wonder Woman #1 (summer of 1942)Today, the last day of Women’s History Month, I’d like to take a closer look at the most influential and recognizable superheroine in comics, Wonder Woman.

She may not be the the first comic book superheroine or even the first heroine to star in her own comic, but you can’t deny the impact that Wonder Woman has had on the history of comics and our culture as a whole.

As a character with strong feminist roots, Wonder Woman has certainly seen her share of ups and downs throughout her publication.

That Festival Feeling

I love this! These are thoughts that constantly occupy my mind. I would love an opportunity to go to Coachella and experience that festival feeling, but until then I’ll keep daydreaming.

The Half-Empty Mason Jar


My last weekend was spent in the paradise that is the Coachella Music and Arts Festival. A magical world where hipsters from all walks of life unite under the Indio sun to drink alcohol, indulge in drugs of every form, listen music, and talk about their ironic lifestyles. We all acknowledge that half of the appeal of Coachella is the trendiness that comes along with it. Many treat it as a fashion show, some just want to be able to say that they went knowing very little about the bands playing, and others use it as an excuse to dance in zero to no clothing. Just as suspected, it was in fact four days full of dirty hippies, wide-eyed junkies, and one too many trendy girls in flower crowns.  However, I am not an innocent Coachella goer. You better believe that I rocked a flower crown and had every outfit…

Buena Vista Social Club – Chan Chan lyrics



De Alto Cedro voy para Marcane
Llego a Cueto voy para Mayari
(Repeat x3)

El cariño que te tengo
Yo no lo puedo negar
Se me sale la babita
Yo no lo puedo evitar

Cuando Juanica y Chan Chan
En el mar cernian arena
Como sacudia el ‘jibe’
A Chan Chan le daba pena

Limpia el camino de pajas
Que yo me quiero sentar
En aquel tronco que veo
Y asi no puedo llegar

De Alto Cedro voy para Marcane
Llego a Cueto voy para Mayari
(Repeat x3)

(Instrumental solo)

De Alto Cedro voy para Marcane
Llego a Cueto voy para Mayari
(Repeat x2)

De Alto Cedro voy para Marcane
Llego a Cueto voy (slowly) para Mayari

Falling Out Of Love

The last WordPress post I read titled, “Love, Loved, Light” by denmother inspired me to explore the concept of falling out of love.

Growing up I thought that it was impossible to fall out of love, but as I’ve grown older I see that is is very much possible and becoming more and more common in our society. It is actually really sad. I grew up on fairytales and happily ever afters, but no one every tells us about the divorce of Cinderella and Prince Charming.

Getting older I’m starting to notice the reality of relationships and dating of the society that we live in. Divorces are more common than happily ever afters. After witnessing so many people close to me fall out of love and divorce, it leaves little hope. I often wonder is love now a temporary feeling? Are humans not capable of loving one person their whole lives? Do Americans not understand the ins and outs of relationships until their more successful second marriage?

“Love, Loved, Light” mentioned the heartbreaking reality that people often fall out of love at different times, leaving one person hurt and devastated. Why? It doesn’t make any sense to me why relationships can destroy people. Shouldn’t relationships be a safe environment where you can truly be yourself, become a better person and not have to worry about experiencing the worst pain from your own partner? Why does love have to be painful and relationships so difficult?

Love, Loved, Light

Wow! This is the sad reality of relationships and brings up thought-pondering ideas about love.


It seems all around me long-term relationships, marriages and families are, or have, or continue to blow up.  From posts in the blogging world to my friends and acquaintances and even in my own personal experience, there seems to be so much crap and residual crap floating around.  It has all definitely changed my traditional views on marriage, family and relationship longevity over the years.

For context, my parents are still together after 50+ years of marriage.  I have four siblings and out of the five of us, four have gotten married and three divorced.  I’m one of the divorced sets and have two kids.  Same with one of my sisters.

I’m sure I was in love with my husband as much as anyone can be sure of what love actually is.  I’m quite certain that he was in love with me, too.  At some point he stopped loving me…
