Adulting is hard and I want my mom’s cooking back.

2.  Love the smell, hate the taste.

I have student loans to pay off and rent to pay, so I can’t afford to find myself a Mexican mom who can make my apartment smell like Mexican food. Do they make menudo-scented candles? If not, someone should get on that,

3. A message to lurkers.

We all need a reminder to drink to our haters every once in a while – they’re just jealous, honey. I think we’re all a little guilty of jealous lurking at some point though. Let’s all try to spread love to each other instead.

4. We all know this type.

Yep, anyone with Chucks and a piercing is definitely a “rocker”.

5.  Uber offers the perfect opportunity to take on a new identity.

Let’s be real though, we’re all cosplaying as something, be it a straight boy, Wonderwoman, or someone who actually has their shit together.

6. If your mother doesn’t nag at you when you come home, something’s wrong.

“You didn’t shave your beard? Pluck your eyebrows. I thought you were losing weight. When did you last take a shower? Have you been eating?” When she picks at your appearance, that’s how you know she loves you.

7. Lady Gaga’s level of Catholicism is every abuela’s wet dream.

Sorry, abuela. I’m too hungover to go to mass this morning.

8. No matter how many times I say no, I still want to be invited.

You know that feeling when you see your friends going out on social media and you’re mad that they didn’t invite you but you said no the last 16 times? Yeah, me too. I’m just going to sit here and watch reruns of The Office for the 23rd time now and hope that I’ll be invited next time.

9.  When you’re too fabulous to be on time.

Your boss can’t blame you for being late. Your habitual lateness has been passed down through several generations of strong, independent women who won’t let time define them. And you needed a coffee.

10. When you finally look good in a photo but you don’t want your dad’s 8th cousin’s brother to be in the picture.

I don’t blame her. It’s hard to look good in photos unless it’s your 500th selfie taken in an hour. When you finally get a good one, you have to share it – but first, you need to crop out that unidentifiable relative who you haven’t seen in 6 years.

11. We are all this dog.

I’m going places, I swear. I just need to finish every show on Netflix and eat everything in sight.

12. She’s not wrong.

You’re still special, girl. Don’t let Becky’s Juvederm make you think you aren’t great. (And your lips will never deflate.)

13. For real though.

Did you think the bible was completed all this time? Oh, no, no, no. After thousands of years of just near perfection, the New Testament was completed on November 10, 2014, with the release of Taylor Swift’s Blank Space. The world has never been the same since.

14. Have you ever tried to host Thanksgiving? Don’t.

You don’t know stress and anxiety until you try to cook a decent meal for 25 Latinos. You just don’t. And if you have, you deserve official sainthood.

15. If your mom is your #1 girl, you’re lucky.

Nothing beats the unconditional love of a Latina mother or any mother for that matter. Friends come and go, and some might stay, but your mom has been there since the beginning.  Her love and support will never go away (even if it’s tough love).

16. You know the feeling.

We just barely made it through Thanksgiving, but we’re going to need a lot more tequila to get through the rest of the holiday season.

17. Nothing beats authentic Mexican food.

We’re not talking about that overpriced hipster stuff that costs $15 for 3 bites of food. One $10 order of the real deal can feed a family of nine for weeks.

18. The nerve of some people.

No, I did not authorize this purchase of $277 at Sephora. This eyeliner is all natural. How dare my bank take my money? I’m just trying to look good.

19. I think we all can relate to this.

You get out of the shower, dry off, and make the mistake of sitting in bed with just your towel on. And it’s so, so comfortable. You take out your phone to check Twitter and suddenly you’re watching a full-on documentary on YouTube. An hour has now passed and you’re late and your hair is still wet, and out go your hopes and dreams of ever being a functioning member of society.

20. Going through 6 days of torture, all for nothing.

That size chart looked enticing, but you decided to just wing it and hope you’re still the size you were last summer. Big mistake.

21. And that was the moment they realized they made a mistake.

People love to talk as much shit in Spanish all they want, but as soon as they realize people can understand them, they’re surprised. Be careful what you say – you never know who’s listening.

An Abuelo Got A Hurtful Note From Bad Neighbors About His Decorations And Latino Twitter Came Into Comfort Him

An Abuelo Got A Hurtful Note From Bad Neighbors About His Decorations And Latino Twitter Came Into Comfort Him

@goldenstef / Twitter

We are rarely more defensive than we are for our abuelos. The viejitos have always been there for us and seeing them treated unkindly is just heartbreaking. That is what one Twitter user experienced after her abuelo got a wretched note about his decorations outside his home.

This is the horrid letter left for @goldenstef’s abuelo by undesirable neighbors.

The letter, which is filled with misspelled words, calls the abuelo’s house an example of a “low class Mexican family.” The letter was written anonymously by neighbors and delivered to the abuelo in an attempt to shame him into changing his decorations. One of the most bizarre moments in the letter is when the angry author criticized the homeowner for having too many American flags claiming he isn’t patriotic and can’t fool the neighbors. Like, which one is it people?

The Twitter user followed up with photos of the house to show the decorations their abuelo has out front.

People flooded the Twitter post with comments supporting and sending love to the abuelo. Fellow Latinos are ready to stand with the abuelo and some just want the names of the people behind the letter so they can talk to them. Some people are stunned at how far the author was willing to go out of their way to be mean to an old man who just wants to decorate his home and front yard.

Latino Twitter wants to come together to let the abuelo know that his decorations are adorbs.

We need to come together to give her abuelo all of the wonderful decoration we love. Let’s turn his house and front yard into a showcase of all of the greatness that Latin America has to offer.

People are falling in love with this viejitos yard.

Honestly, this is a great yard. Who wouldn’t want a yard like this? This yard is original and adorable and worth all of the praise that we can muster. Thank you to people like this for making their yards something unique and worth seeing.

@goldenstef wants everyone to know just how much they appreciate the sweet messages about their abuelo’s yard.

It costs nothing to be kind. It is even better when you can be kind about something someone clearly cares so much about. Who cares if someone decorates their lawn a little too much. At least they are having fun with their lives and that is something we all need more of right now.

A shooting that occurred over the weekend in Compton, California has sparked shock, alarm, and outrage.

The shooting occurred sometime around 7 p.m. on Saturday at MLK Transit Center in Compton. According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the gunman made his way toward the passenger’s side of the deputies’ car and shot two deputies with a pistol without precedent.

One of the victims is a 31-year-old mother.

On Saturday, the sheriff’s department tweeted surveillance footage of the shooting which also captured the gunman fleeing the scene.

According to reports, the gunman fired into the deputies’ car without pretext.

“This is just a somber reminder that this is a dangerous job, and actions and words have consequences. Our job does not get any easier because people do not like law enforcement,” Alex Villanueva, the 33rd Sheriff of Los Angeles County, said in a statement. “It pisses me off. It dismays me at the same time.”

According to Villanueva, both of the deputies (Claudia Apolinar a 31-year-old mother and a 24-year-old man) were sworn in just 14 months ago and are in critical condition at the hospital. According to the sheriff’s department both are “fighting for their lives” but “it looks like they’re going to be able to recover.”

Apolinar and her partner were both shot at close range. Apolinar was shot in the face and torso and her partner sustained multiple gunshot wounds Seeing that he was in need of immediate medical treatment, Apolinar managed to make a tourniquet for him before medics arrived.

According to the New York Post, Apolinar is a former librarian who graduated from the academy last year.

“We’ll see what the long-term impact is. We don’t know that yet, but they survived the worst,” Villanueva explained.

Local officials have announced a $100,000 reward for information on the gunman and his whereabouts.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden spoke out against the attack and condemned it in a statement calling “Acts of lawlessness and violence directed against police officers are unacceptable, outrageous, and entirely counterproductive to the pursuit of greater peace and justice in America — as are the actions of those who cheer such attacks on.”

Speaking about the incident, Democratic US Rep. Adam Schiff called the attack “cowardly.”

“Every day, law enforcement officers put themselves at risk to protect our community,” Schiff stated in a post shared to Twitter. “I hope the perpetrator of this cowardly attack can be quickly brought to justice.”
