7 Kitchen Struggles That Are Way Too Real For Latinos

Disney

The kitchen may often be the most fun place in the house, sure, but for Latinos, it’s also an obstacle course of madness, music and mazes of Tupperware. For example…

Oh, did you want to heat something up? Better spend half an hour trying to put pots and pans into cabinets. (Which sucks for you, because the cabinets hold towers of Tupperware that WILL fall down on your head as you open the cabinet doors.)


And finding a plastic bag in the cabinet means digging yourself out from under a pile of them.

Double-check and make sure the plastic bag you took out isn’t filled with 127 other plastic bags.

You’re lucky your birthday cake wasn’t a candle stuck in a piece of white bread.


Forgetting the tortilla will ruin your whole day.

Don’t check your texts. Don’t look out the window. Don’t even think. Just stare at the tortilla and pray.


And you can’t even ask a simple question around here!

Oh, did you want a burger? Some fries? Did you want to even think about soda? HA, THINK AGAIN!

This Is The One Festival You’ll Want To Attend

There’s never going to be another one like Selena. That’s why a festival in Corpus Christi, Texas, dedicated to her is so is so awesome.

Selena Quintanilla remains queen 21 years after her death. In fact, there’s a new generation of fans that come together every year at Fiesta de la Flor in Corpus Christi to honor her.

“When I was young, I was always trying to dance like her, dress like her, and do everything like her,” one of the 50,000 attendees told Fusion. “Now I see that my kids are taking in interest in her, but for their own reasons.”

Aside from music, fans can appreciate cool Selena fan art.

That’s like one degree of separation from the queen.

One quality that made her so iconic was that Selena taught us how to be confident in our own skin. She had no problem showing off her curves.

She wore clothes that hugged her every curve – before having a big booty was cool. “She didn’t care what people thought. If she wanted to be flashy, she was flashy,” said another fan. “If she looked good and she thought she looked good, she wore it.”

At the Fiesta de la Flor, fans show up dressed in outfits similar to the ones she once wore on stage. Like this one:

The famous jumpsuit she wore for her last concert is a top favorite. “We may not look as great, but we’re wearing it,” a fan said. “We don’t care what other people think, just like Selena,” another responded.

“She’s an empowering woman. I feel like she broke the mold for women, not just in Tejano, but in general,” her fans said.
