Side Bar: Summer Nights

July can’t be over because that means I only have one week with interns left. Waaaa! This summer has been nothing if not productive. If I play my cards right, I will have filed TEN applications this month, which is unheard of (for me)!  Ok but other than filing cases, July was like perfect Chicago […]

Side Bar: At the Beach

So full disclosure—I had hoped to make the sidebar post more visual (i.e. video format) but that will have to wait until I move in the summer because the way my current house is set up, the acoustics are just turrible. Turrible. Anyway, June went by hella fast. Probably because I went on a much […]

SideBar(ish): 25 things about me

I generally do a post about what I’ve been up to for the month, but I’m planning to make that a little bit more exciting (and visual!). So I’m changing it up this month and decided to do 25 things about me so you could get to know me better! I grew up in Indiana […]

Sidebar: Roller Coaster

It’s already May! Like yes, you know that, but still April basically vanished. It was crazy busy for me. Mostly because I started the month thinking I was going to have to file a ton of cases because of an immigration form update, but thankfully, there’s a delay on that so work is back to […]

Sidebar: Busy Bday

It’s like almost the end of April and I’m barely writing about March. That’s how cray things have been. So my March was ridiculously busy and I’m not about to bore you so some highlights: The first weekend, I attended a Latina blogger conference in L.A. This was my second year and aside from learning […]

Sidebar: Love and Mental Riots

So…I feel like my life is marked in pre & post-election. Like the bombardment of bad news, stupefying news, racist policies, behaviors, etc. etc. is enough to drive someone crazy. I feel like I’m constantly seething. To find a balance, I keep distracting myself (like everyone should) because I just can’t be “on” and available […]

Sidebar: Netflix and Dread

Only three years, 11 months, three weeks, and two days before the next inauguration. And it can’t come soon enough. What’s always supposed to feel like a fresh start and clean slate, has been mostly a month of dread. I’m almost always anxious about these new policies, “leaders,” and what it will mean to my […]

Sidebar: Good Riddance 2016

Ok first, major apologies for the dead air for the past few days! I had a plan and then got sick (which, don’t worry, I’ll definitely talk about in the next few paragraphs lol and that ruined everything–but on to the post:  I guess I can say December was better than November because nothing (hopefully) […]

Sidebar: What Just Happened?

Thankful this month is over. I went in with such high expectations. And, well, dot dot dot. November 9th was the worst day of my career. I’ve often dealt with clients calling in fear after hearing about raids or rumors in their communities, but this was so different. It was gut-wrenching. It was the end […]

Sidebar: Don’t Throw Away Your Shot

Um, it’s already November (i.e. Sidebar time). That’s cray. October was so much fun though! First, work has been pretty steady so that’s always good. It’s immigration New Year, meaning visas are being issued now that it’s their new fiscal year and I’m waiting for approval notices to trickle in…so slowly. The backlog is a […]
