Here’s REBELLION

Here’s REBELLION

re·bel·lion

an act of resistance to an established ruler or government

” Why? ”

The first thought that entered my head when I started educating myself on feminism.

The first thought on November 9th.

The first thought when I finished watching 13th the movie.

I’ll be honest, I really wanted to write sooner, but my body went into a stage of shock after the election. I would have loved to say that I was fully in control of my reaction and that I smiled my way through the following hours………..

But I would be lying.

It hit me like a truck. I wasn’t ready. The best metaphor I can think of is that of grieving, but the kind of grieving where you stop feeling anything after the initial breakdown. Yeah, just like that.

I wanted to do so much in such little time. Wanted to hit the streets in unity and protest. Wanted to reverse the last 24 hours. Wanted to change all the mentalities that are causing harm.

I wanted to change the world. And that seemed so impossible. Especially, when my body felt like it could barely hold itself up.

And I know some of you are thinking it…. “Why has this election been so emotional?” And to that I answer, “Is it bad to mourn all the God-given lives being killed by pure prejudice?”

I’m not against Trump. He won’t get everything he wants done. But don’t mistake that I’m purely against the ideas and actions that he further normalized. I’m mad because more men think that it’s okay to grab a woman’s p****. I’m mad because white supremacists think that it’s okay to torture and harass the Black community. I’m mad because more Muslims are being told to rip off their hijabs or in some cases have it ripped off. They are being called terrorists and now you have a President who makes it seem like it’s okay. I’m mad because Latin’s, as a whole, are being seen as wetbacks or illegal immigrants. I’m mad because so many people are ignoring the DAPL.

Now, I know what’s running through the heads of those who don’t agree with me. “But Trump is pro-life.” “He wants to keep the sanctity of marriage and protect family values.” “At least he isn’t under FBI investigation.” “It’s just his attitude, he’s being honest.” “He wants to instill Christian values.” “We didn’t protest when Obama was elected. Hillary supporters are being aggressive.”

WOW, that’s an interesting list, isn’t it?  I’m going to take one point at a time to show you why they might be invalid.

  1. “But Trump is pro-life.”: Ah, the good old Christian problem. I simply have one thing to say about this. How many of you would be willing to pay a small amount of taxes for orphanages, food stamps for kids, and education? Yes, I know. Not many. We complain about our taxes enough as it is, why try to add more to it? Now, here’s the problem… Many Christians are fully against killing humans who fit in a petri dish, but we do so little to keep the actual living and breathing children alive. We fight for them before they have met the world, but turn a blind eye once they are born. “It’s not our fault they are living on the streets. Or begging. Or starving” Actually it is our fault because we fought to let them have a life, but refuse to do the bare minimum to keep them alive. It’s like a vegan saving a live chicken from being killed for human consumption and then sticking it in a cage with no food or water. Did you really fix the problem? Or did you just change one bad situation into another? It’s like when my mom tells me to put something away and I just move it into another incorrect location. I didn’t fix the problem, just the situation.
  2. “He wants to keep the sanctity of marriage and protect family values.” Uh, okay. Lots of thoughts. First off, what is the definition of protecting family values? Because I don’t think your President sees it as removing abusive parents, helping families in poverty, helping parents with disabling mental and physical issues, and aiding low-income families with education costs. We all really know it just means “Stop the gays.” Because Lord forbid, all those orphans get adopted by loving families, right? Now, I’m fully aware that the Christians reading this right now are probably losing their minds. Well, let’s take a short history lesson……………………….To begin let’s just remember that our country was not founded on “Christian” values. Some of the Founding Fathers acknowledged that there was a higher power, but ventured no further. Very few of the Founding Fathers actually had complex and developed ideas about Christianity. In addition, how can your country be founded on “Christian” values and ideals if the land it is on is a graveyard for Native Americans? I mean really, how Christian is that? This is the land of the free. How can we actually believe this, but refuse to grant free will when it comes to marriage? Same-sex marriage does not threaten cis heterosexual marriage. Therefore, why do Christian people feel the need to erase any legal possibilities for that kind of marriage? It isn’t necessary, we are just limiting people when it brings no harm. As long as neither queer nor religious people are forcing their beliefs on the government/society, then let it be. And by the previous statement, I mean not having only “Christian marriages” or “same-sex marriages.”
  3. “At least he isn’t under FBI investigation.” Welllllll, let me give you some food for thought. “By USA Today‘s count, Trump is involved in at least 75 ongoing cases.” Sounds like fun! Totally being honest this is a pretty bad excuse, so I’m not spending much time here. Now, I’m not pro-Hillary (never was), but I find it pretty sad that Mr. Trump has absolutely no governmental/military experience. Sure, they were both bad candidates in there own sense, but honestly how hard is it to be against a man who says lewd comments about women, dehumanizes immigrants, and has a past in sexual harassment and assault? He goes against the very definition of morals, has no self-control, and “bullies” minorities. His actions have further normalized sexism, racism, ableism (discrimination and social prejudice against people with disabilities. Ableism characterizes persons as defined by their disabilities and as inferior to the non-disabled.), and homophobic actions. None of these are right and neither is an FBI investigation.
  4. “It’s just his attitude, he’s being honest.” “He wants to instill Christian values.” Quick question: If your sibling, child, grandchild, nephew, etc. said something completely mean and rude to a fellow friend or child, how would you react? Would you say, “it’s just their attitude” ? I would hope not. Trump functions as a rude, hateful man who claims to have Christian ideals. Sounds like perfect chaos. The second most important commandment in the Bible is “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” How can you love your fellow humans if you are constantly insulting them and their beliefs? Do you see the slight problem here? Now, some people are thinking “Oh, it’s just his opinion,” and to that I respond…. Opinions are for things like your favorite ice cream flavor or pizza combination, NOT hating women, POC (people of color), and any other minorities. Opinions don’t hate, just prefer.
  5. “We didn’t protest when Obama was elected. Hillary supporters are being aggressive.” Okay, I’m fully aware that many of the people reading this didn’t protest during either election and that is why I have chosen to not direct my message towards you, personally. People DID protest President Obama’s election  and quite horrendously if I might say so. screen-shot-2016-11-16-at-5-27-34-pm                         Well, how about that? Everyone protests about everything, let’s get that straight. And within protests there are always the people that will try to incite violence and aggressiveness, you can’t prevent that. Protests are our constitutional right and even though I don’t believe that violence is the answer to anything, let’s just remember that the Boston Tea party, Berlin Wall, the Orange Revolution, and Tiananmen Square were all slightly violent/violent protests that drastically changed our course in history. If you are the people saying that we should move on, then I’m afraid you’re probably not the people being affected by Trump’s policies or the actions that his followers take. Don’t minimize our problems by saying that we should move on. Families might be separated. Women have and will continue to be ridiculed and silenced. Religions will be demonized. Colored people will be further insulted and hurt in this society. These problems aren’t invisible or fantasy. Open your eyes and heart.

Here’s SOMETHING CRAZY

cra·zy

extremely enthusiastic

jour·ney

a long and often difficult process of personal change and development

 

Hi babes! I’m fully aware that I haven’t posted a blog in a long time, but I’ve been working on something (crazy) special.

In case you didn’t know, I’m the kind of person that will go against any slight challenge you give me. The first case was when I was a baby. I was born with hip issues and had to wear a brace that did not allow me to walk or barely move. The doctor had told my parents that I wouldn’t be able to walk before I was one, but of course why would I listen. That’s right! I walked before I turned one and ever since I heard that story, I’ve made it my personal mission to not let other people define what I can and cannot do.

And I guess to a certain degree, I’m here to let you all know that I’ve accepted the biggest challenge yet… Even though it has other underlying reasons and motives.

 

I am in the process of being accepted to YEA (Young Entrepreneurs Academy), it is a nationwide program for middle-high schoolers looking to start their own business or non-profit organization.

I have had the idea for a business for a while now and it’s slowly evolved and changed in theory. Right now, my plan is for it to be a clothing company and for part of the profits to go towards Partners Worldwide. Partners Worldwide is a non-profit organization that works in poor communities to help men and women find and create jobs. I don’t believe that giving excessive handouts to people in poor communities in going to fix anything. Instead, we are just ruining the local economy and erasing jobs for the locals.

Therefore, I will be on the search for teens and adults who are willing to help out and possibly work for the company once it is established.

I am hoping to name the company “(SOUL)Y HUMAN” due to a few reasons. One of the reasons, is that we all have a soul and that’s one of the defining factors of humans. The secondary reason, is that the name would be read as “Solely Human,” which displays the idea that we are all human and just that. We are all equal. We are all loved. So, I ask that you keep me in mind and in your prayers throughout this journey. I need as much support as possible and I promise to keep you guys up to date about (SOUL)Y HUMAN.

Feel free to contact me if you want to know more, have advice, or believe that you could possibly contribute to this mission.

LET’S CHANGE THE WORLD!!

Here’s a SITUATION

_MG_4984.jpgrep·re·sent

be entitled or appointed to act or speak for (someone)

sit·u·a·tion

a set of circumstances in which one finds oneself

 

HEY, I’m back! Please forgive me for being so tardy. Sadly, I haven’t been able to think up a good topic until now. (And technically today I have two topics.) So what have I been up to…..? GREAT QUESTION! (LOL I need a life)  Last week I had my awesome uncle and adorable cousin over, last weekend I left for a church retreat (aka the BOMB DIGGITY), and this week I had my aunt, uncle and cousins over. Okay, enough about me.

1st topic: RESET RETREAT and the lessons learnt

2nd topic: My small situation

 

Part I

So, to begin my first topic I would like to personally thank Christy and Lucas Miles for preparing the amazing retreat that our church was able to go on and I would like to thank room #13 (you know who you are). Reset Retreat… for those of you who don’t know, this was my first retreat EVER! Review: CRAZY AMAZING AND AWESOME. I had a blast dancing with Emunah and learning so much in such little time.

One of the main things that I learned in this retreat was cutting emotional ties. Ahh, my area of expertise (NOT.) (Disclaimer; I don’t usually open up this publicly, but I feel that this is something that many people need to hear. I am not releasing full details and if you would like to know more, just contact me personally.) During the first day of the retreat, my eyes were quickly opened to some burdens that I was pretty sure were gone. Around this time last year I dealt with a lot of bullying (in a manner of the word), betrayal, and heartbreak. Physical and mental ties were cut extremely quick, but I began to ignore how much the hurt was affecting my emotions. I had forgiven the people, but I constantly reminded myself of what they did to me. During the retreat, one of the leaders made me realize how much this affected me. If you would just bring up the topic, I would become a sobbing mess. I thought I was free, but that was just a self-imposed lie. The idea that I couldn’t let go was so heart wrenching, so painful. I couldn’t find a way out of my invisible maze. Prayer and faith was all it took. So simple, so do-able. The second I released those ties was the second that a real smile returned to my face. When you go from such hurt to amazing joy, you don’t know how to react. I guess what I’m trying to say is that no matter how small or invisible the problem seems, it can always be mended back together by God. He has full control and power over what happens in our lives and I would never regret the hurt that happened to me. I learned and matured in a way that could not have been done any other way. So, keep your chin up and release all those transparent ties that hold you down.

 

Part II

So, as I just stated, I have been hurt by people. (Haven’t we all :/) But never in a million years did I expect to be stuck in the sort of predicament for a repeat of hurt. It’s like hoping to fail on Wipeout twice, uhhh no thanks. Now before I get into this, another disclaimer (anotha one.) Yes, I am homeschooled. No, I am not antisocial. Yes, Christian homeschoolers can be mean (it’s called the lack of drama.)  Okayyyy… So, since the beginning of this summer I’ve been planning out my 11th grade classes with my mom and everything was going great. I mean EVERYTHING. And then it comes, the one thing that turns out to be not so great. One of the kids who hurt me two years ago was going to be in the same exact Marine Biology course as me. Let me tell you, those chances were slim to start with, but of course God likes to be funny. AH THE IRONY. My parents first (understandable) thoughts were to not take the course at all and my mind went NO. I’m not gonna act like I want to be some Marine Biologist in the future, but I wasn’t going to let this class slip by either. Since getting hurt, I’ve changed a bunch. If you’ve met me in the past 6 months, then you probably think I’m super social and friends with everyone. (That’s totally new and not a usual me.) My new mindset and renewed faith brought me to get the guts to beg in order to stay in class. Just like I wouldn’t let my feelings for a boy hinder my education, I won’t let a boy that I don’t agree with hinder my education.  I have no idea how bad or well this class is going to go, but I’m ready for the challenge. Scared, but ready. So, no matter how impossibly horrible or horrendous the situation seems, I want you to know that you can get past it with a smile. And as Selena Gomez would say, “Kill ’em with kindness.”

 

I love you all so much and I hope to be back soon. <3<3<3

Here’s a SINCERE APPRECIATION

ap·pre·ci·a·tion

1.

the recognition and enjoyment of the good qualities of someone or something.

friend

1.

someone you love and who loves you, someone you respect and who respects you, someone whom you trust and who trusts you

HEY I’M BACKKKKKKK!!!

So I just want to share my latest accomplishments with you guys before I continue with my blog….

1. I have finished watching all Harry Potter movies

2. I have entered my entry for a photography contest, with the award of being featured in a  magazine

3. I have also entered for a poetry and short story contest, with the same award.

Today’s topic is about how freaking awesome my friends are and why I appreciate them so. (BTW to all my super-supportive family reading, I will be talking about how awesome you guys are.)

First off, I love all of you guys and you are extremely special to me. I’m simply writing this because you’ve made me smile at some moment and it’s my turn.

Second, you have all impacted me in ways I can’t explain. Whether you’ve been there for 90% of my breakdowns or you’ve just always been able to make me laugh. Whether I’ve met you in the last 3 months and don’t really know you or I’ve known you my whole life.

Since I have no idea what order to put you guys in, I won’t (at least not in a specific order.)

SIS- okay, so I’m not sure if you actually count as a friend or family??? But it’s okay. I know you’ve been harassing me to write a blog about sisterhood and I promise I’m working on it. You’ve been my first answered prayer and a constant comfort since. You can make me laugh even when I’ve been crying for hours and you’ve given me much of my creativity. To be continued…

COLLEEN-uh, I’m not exactly sure how many times I have to tell you how much I appreciate you, but here we go again. 🙂 You’re that one friend, the lifetime one that has managed to stick for longer than I anticipated. Sure, I didn’t really like you in elementary, but apparently best friends don’t leave easily. We’ve argued plenty of times, but we always manage to fix things up. I love you.

SKY AND RAMEY- Honestly, what would I do without you two? My snake and hawk… I can never thank you enough for being my shoulders to cry on when life in Tampa became hard to handle. Thanks Sky for being an awesome movie partner (The life of Ruby Sparks and The Call were the best) and dressing up with me since day 1. Thanks Ramey for having that beautiful contagious laugh, getting high on Skittles during my birthday, and being a joy to have around. P.S. we need to talk and FaceTime more often.

DANCE GIRLS (Chloe, Angie, Kayla, Ali, Cleo, and Natalia because why not)-CLEO, NATALIA I miss you guys so much and I pray that you guys are enjoying and handling your move as well as can be expected. Overall, I want to thank you for handling my pre-dance breakdowns with immense grace and getting in trouble for talking in class with me. (oops) Thank you for allowing me to re-enter dance after my move back. Angie and Chloe, all thanks to you two beautiful beings for loving me and helping me through those tough patches. I hope to return to favor soon. ❤

JUAN #1 ZAPATA- Even though you’re really bad at texting, I still enjoy hanging out with you. Thanks for being weird and making me weird. Also we need to hang out soon. Thanks for all the horrible puns and awkward moments.

VERTICAL FRIENDS (you know who you are)- Okay, so I barely know you guys, but I still have so much to thank you for. You’ve all welcomed me into your circles and treated me with immense love, it’s honestly changed me for the better. From learning to appreciate my Latin roots to becoming an overly social person, you’ve all helped me become better. Thank you for giving me great examples of what it’s like to love Jesus with all my heart.

So, I’ve thanked the majority of my friends, but I also hope to remind you that friendship does not take number 1 place in my life. Somewhat recent events have taught me to value my life, precious Jesus, and family first. And to all the friends that have disappeared from my life, I love you.

OSCAR AND JEN- I love you guys and thanks for supporting my photography and poetry with unending love. Thank you for raising J.P. to be a great 2 year old. And thank you for always being there to listen to me. I LOVE YOU.

MONICA, JUAN CARLOS, MORENO, AND TIA MERCEDES- Los amo y gracias por ser unos de los mejores familiares.

TIA TICA, ABUELITA OLGA, Y TIA MAJO+FAMILIA- Gracias por siempre amarme y cuidarme. Los amo y espero verlos pronto.

MOM AND DAD- I mean I guess you’re okay… Just kidding!! You guys are the bestest and (completete lol). Thank you for raising me as a loving, intellectual, and balanced young woman. We don’t always have it together or all of it, but you’ve been amazing. Mom, thank you for having the patience and taking the time to homeschool me, I couldn’t thank you enough. Dad, thank you for always supporting our family and for giving me a love for all things green and with leaves. I love you guys beyond what words can describe.

LOS ABUELITOS- Yoyo y Miro, los amo mucho! Gracias por siempre consentirme y cuidarme. Los amare por siempre.

PAUL AND CLAUDIA- YOU’RE the best godparents ever. Thank you for being one of my first memories of Sunday church. Thank you for always supporting me and for satisfying my love for ice-cream and rice. Please tell Oso that I love him. AND I LOVE YOU.

MAKAYLAH, LULU, and KRITHIKA- You’re the bombest online friends a girl can ask for and even though I might never meet any of you, I love you with all I have.

I LOVE AND THANK YOU ALL

Here’s my LOVE

Hi, so I’m finally back due to my termination of procrastination. (Forgive my use of big words, I’ve become a human dictionary lately.) I’ve recently become an owner of a 🔥album and gotten into more mental feminist-related arguments with myself than usual. Yeah, I know I’m strange (and proud).

First off… All of my love and regards to the victims and their families of the Orlando shooting, Kenyan shooting, and Mexico shooting.

Second off… I love all of you guys and I honestly appreciate you for paying attention to my blogs.<3

 

Today I want to talk a bit about love. You heard it. As a Christian and loved human, I know all about the topic, but probably not everything. Lately, I’ve been struggling with humanity as a whole and as single beings. My mind questions the existence of rapists, killers, and assaulters. But as extreme as those examples might be, they don’t frustrate me as consistently. The everyday actions of us normal humans are what frustrate me the most. As much as we would like to deny it, we brew hatred and ignorance on a daily basis. That moment when you give a questionable stranger a look or you ignore the “weird” kid at school are all moments when you caused hate. Hate is most always at the base of the actions done by murderers and the like. Why should “everyday” humans share components with murderers? As normal and natural as we find our actions, we must understand that hate IS NOT RIGHT. Christians hate, Muslims hate, Atheists hate, and Catholics hate. Religion doesn’t erase hate. As broken as our world might be, we need to try and help the situation. Our  hate isn’t preventing shootings or preventing young Africans girls from getting mutilated. Even though I am a Christian and believe that being queer is a sin, (alongside with lying, divorce, and envy at no different level) I don’t believe that I should hate LGBTQ or discriminate them. I don’t believe in hating anyone with a different religion/relationship. I don’t believe in hating African Americans or immigrants. I don’t believe in hating disabled people, or people who don’t fit into the world’s perfect image of a body. I DON’T BELIEVE IN HATE. I BELIEVE IN LOVE. Help me change the world, 1 person at a time with love. Let’s smile at passing strangers. Help the less fortunate. Stand up for the oppressed and voiceless. And replace hate with love.

give /giv/ – freely transfer the possession of (something) to (someone); hand over to.

Today, I’m going to verge from my subject of feminism due to the fact that I had a promise to fulfill. PLEASE SHARE.

2 months ago my life changed. I met a person that taught me to love, smile, and enjoy the simplicities of life. She mildly showed me how to erase the “I” out of life. Gave me a heart for others. Made the sun shine during a storm.

Yoreimy del Carmen Mata Gomez    the owner of a lovely soul.

A smile worth 10000000000000 dollars. Our sponsor daughter.

2 months ago, I met her in Colombia, inside a small town outside of Cartagena. Compassion organization works alongside with us to help sponsor this young girl. Her every need is met. She has a loving family and a bunch of bunnies to love on. As we arrived to her school center, my heart slowly broke. The town is nothing compared to your community. They don’t even have proper sewage. But they thrive. Her sweet class of students had prepared a joyous welcome with an overwhelmingly grand welcome sign. Lessons learned, dances, and songs were presented for us. A few young boys recited “local” self-written poetry equivalent to rapping. (Copla)

“Con Dios soy agradecido

por permitir que este día

le cantara mi poesía

a toditos estos amigos

gracias por haber  venido

a esta bonita reunión

siento una gran emoción

esto me tiene contento

bendice padre el momento

gracias por la invitación”

 

" With God I am grateful

for allowing this day

to sing my poetry

to all these friends

thanks for coming

to this pretty meeting

I feel a great emotion

this makes me happy

father bless the moment

thanks for the invitation"

They were giving to us. Forget about us blessing them, the expected situation was completely reversed. They wanted to make us feel loved. Later, we played barefoot soccer on the sandy field. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such big smiles. Such a happy vibe…

With this I encourage current sponsors to do their best and meet their children. Write to your child. They might be receiving money, but nothing breaks a heart more than feeling emotionally neglected. If you aren’t sponsoring any children I encourage you to contact me and I will happily connect you with a child from Yoreimy’s center. Let’s learn to love and appreciate the poor, orphans, and widows. Let’s make a difference outside of our small world.

Here’s a THOUGHT

e·qual·i·ty – the state of being equal, especially in status, rights, and opportunities.

fem·i·nism – a movement for social justice with an emphasis on gender.

e·gal·i·tar·i·an – of, relating to, or believing in the principle that all people are equal and deserve equal rights and opportunities.

All of my apologies for being gone for so long, but a quick move into a fast-paced routine is no simple trick. Before I begin, I would like to inform you that this is a quick scope over what I (and many other people) believe feminism to be. I wish to offend no one, although I will once more stand my ground. Comments are welcome and please feel free to share with your friends and family.

Keep this question in mind in regards to the picture, “aren’t they all matches, just in different stages?”

Feminism. Okay I believe that women and men are the most precious things on the face of the earth. (Psalm 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.) That’s right, WONDERFULLY made. Now, I’ve already made the argument that you’re amazing, so let’s focus on something else. Let’s pay a bit of attention to the definitions up top… I’m not gonna lie, the Google definition for feminism was not fully correct. Feminists don’t aim to making the world all about girls, that’s womanism. We don’t think men are bad, we know that there are people out there with messed up morals and we protect and speak up against them. Bad people aren’t just men, women are also included in this category . We do our best to speak up about issues such as Black Lives Matter, refugees, oppressed peoples, LGBT+, and religious problems. As a Christian doing my best to live according to Matthew 7 (“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”) I try my hardest to judge no ones heart because I was not placed on the earth to do so. I will continue to go into depth on some issues in future blogs. There will always be someone who is oppressed, try to understand their pain and then help them. Change this world with selflessness, love, and humbleness. And always remember that these values begin with family and friends.
