On “What do Angela Merkel, Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Sheryl Sandberg and Beyonce have in common?”

@rebecca the brave Interesting! I've always thought I have a textbook first-born personality, but my friends are mostly the youngest in their families. That's so weird! Also, I have dated 3 people: One oldest, one youngest and currently a middle child.
But yes, I am definitely more driven, responsible, and qualified than my 3 sisters.

On Read Gabriel Garcia Marquez's Short Story "Light Is Like Water"

@Mariajoseh also, I read a lot of anglosaxon literature, but García Márquez always makes me love Spanish in a way no other writer does. He really had a way with our lenguage.

On Read Gabriel Garcia Marquez's Short Story "Light Is Like Water"

@Brendan O'Connor@facebook "El ahogado más hermoso del mundo"! It's also my favorite GGM short story. And my favorite novel is 100 years... because it is just a masterpice. I really recommend his journalism too. The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor is a good place to start.

On Cancel "What Americans Will Look Like in 2050"

@stuffisthings I see this idea in Mexico (I'm a white mexican) all the time: we know we are mixed because yes, it is pretty obvious & a historic fact, but that makes most people believe that this country is not racist, while you wouldn't belive the shit native-looking people get.

On What My Mom Wishes I Was Blogging About

Wow, i have to ASK MY MOTHER TO CALL ME! Like, she can go a month or more without talking to me and she is fine. She calls when she needs to vent about my drug addict cousin or needs a favor (yesterday I translated 6 pages she needed urgently for work. Took 2 hours)

On An Unhealthy Relationship (with Food)

@Sella Turcica thank you for the answer! I'm glad you wrote it, it is very good and deserved a full article, it was just weird remembering you comment and not knowing where the memory came from.
