Mi Diario 5

En mi familia, todos nos queremos muchos y nos cuidamos mucho, tenemos nuestros tiempos difíciles, y peleamos mucho, pero de todas maneras igual siempre estamos unidos. Mi mama siempre le gustaba comer juntos, y eso nomas pasaba los domingos, porque la mayoría del tiempo nunca estamos todos en la casa juntos durante almuerzo o la cena. mi mama trabaja asta tarde, mi padrastro y mi hermano menor son los primeros a llegar a casa, y yo normalmente regreso tarde de la universidad. Los domingos…

Crushed It! How to Host a Twitter Chat

I was asked by Tali Horowitz of Common Sense Media to co-moderate a Twitter chat, but I had never done that before. I’ve been on Twitter for about a year and a half and have participated in other chats, so I thought “Why not?” It turned out to be a lot of fun; if you ever have the opportunity, please do so. Since I want everyone to experience this nerd-thrill, I’ve documented how I approached this project. After it was all…

Todos somos diferentes

Todos somos diferentes. Aunque estamos en este mundo y queremos ser iguales, en realidad nosotros tenemos cosas y características diferentes. Si piensas bien, nuestros nombres son diferentes. Algunas tiene nombres hispanas, algunas no. Pero todos diferentes. Por ejemplo, Mi nombre de pila es Leylanie (lay-lah-nee). Mis padres son de Puerto Rico, con herencia desde Francia y España.

I'm just a book club girl in a book club world.

My book club has been together since 1998. We were all moms with little kids at home, and once a month on a Monday night was a big deal to get out and talk to adults for a few hours. The challenge was to stay awake for the meeting. Now we discuss how those same kids are doing in college, but we still have a hard time staying awake.

Late last year, Harper Collins had a contest to become a sponsored book club for a year and I entered our book club. I had completely forgotten about it…

Uno de los restorantes mas apreciado por mi mejor amiga (Christina), nuestras hermanas (Isabella y Crystal) y yo es, El Viejo Yayo. Es un restorante que ha visto muchas celebraciones de nosotras. El Viejo Yayo es un restorante Dominicano. La comida en El Viejo Yayo es riquísima. Hasta siendo Dominicana la comida Dominicana nunca fue mi favorita. Pero en El Viejo Yayo me encanta.

el exhibicion espanola en el MET......

La semana pasada, yo fui con mi hija a el museo del MET.  Allí nos pasamos un buen tiempo mirando todos los esculturas y pinturas de variedades culturas y naciones. Pero lo mas que fascinábamos fue el exhibición de Patio del Castillo Vélez Blanco.

Allí nos sentíamos como si estuvimos en historia Española. Había mucho esculturas italianas en estilo de España alrededor.  El patio fue muy alta y grande. Parece quien vivía en ese época eran de realeza. Las paredes fue en piedra de mármol…

Running into a really old friend at the museum

I graduated from the School of Visual Arts a long time ago with a degree in Fine Arts. It sounds impressive, but my brothers tell everyone I went to Crayon College. I loved the experience, and it has enriched my life. It set me on a path that took many turns for me to wind up where I am now; a computer teacher. It took a lot of turns.

One assignment I remember from school was to go the the Metropolitan Museum of Art and study a specific statue called Marble statue of a…

Experience free/open source courses

The course I chose to take and review was on  It was a short course on personal health and fitness.  It was divided into 5 learning modules with a varying number of topics per module.  I covered the first 5 topics which was all of module one.  It gave an overview of what health is and how it is defined differently (physical, emotional, mental) depending on who you are talking to.  It was presented in a PowerPoint type fashion.  You read the…

Reflection is not just for mirrors anymore.

Where were you last year? Where are you now? Where do you want to be in a year?

Three questions that can stop you in your tracks.

In September, I present to the students my goals for the year. I look at them periodically throughout the year to see if I'm on track. More times than not, I'm nowhere near them. The rosy glow of September is deceiving; so my original plans don't take into consideration the set backs along the way. While it's a humbling exercise, it's…
