¡Que Pinteresante!

This is the first in a series of pinterest-eske posts for quick “How-To” fixes for the everyday post grad. These are fixes on the cheap because lets face it – our funds are low, our wallets are thin, and our debts are as hiiiiigh as el Snoop Lion.

Pinterest #1: How to Fix your car window after it got broken into!

Don’t you just hate when this happens? I know I do! HahaHAHAHAHA!

Step 1: Tools you’ll need : Plastic trash bag, Duct Tape & Scissors (your teeth can be a substitute for this last one)

image

Step 2: Cut your plastic back open and into a shape that will cover the hole in your window where there used to be glass before you got jacked.

image

Step 3: Tape the outer edges of your bag to the outer edges of the window. TA-DA! Behold, the final product!

image

(Insider Tip: If your plastic bag doesn’t fit, you can use another bag too like I did with a little H-E-B grocery bag. Watchate Martha Estuwart.)

For next time…keep on the lookout out for an upcoming post where we’ll get super crafty using the shattered glass from your window and one of your paychecks to make a artistic mosaic piece called “shattered expectations.”

Slowly Fleeting

by Diana Gómez

Today I entered into the next stage of my life. It’s a bit horrifying getting a glimpse into the light at the end of the tunnel that awaits me.

It’s terrifying knowing that the deterioration process has begun. There’s nothing I can do to turn back the hands of time – It’s all downhill from here.

After today, I cannot take pleasure in the same things I used to. I cannot take the same risks. I now know I have to salvage what I have left.

And I have come to realize all of this because today… I had heartburn for the first time in my life.

Casa Guanajuto

Every time I go down HWY 71 to visit my family in Houston I pass Casa Guanajuato. My mom is from Guanajuato so it brings back memories of visiting Mexico every summer and going to all the tienditas.

Sometimes My Pants Don’t Fit Me

By Diana Gomez

Sometimes my pants don’t fit me and it really grinds my gears.

How can a pair of pants you’ve known for a good while, friggin betray you one day out of nowhere?

They pick the worst day. And on that day they want to suffocate me from the hips/waist. It’s bullshit.

I have no choice but to become a luchadora and fight/wrestle my way into those stupid jeans because “fuck it, they’re gonna fit damn it!!”

For a second, I look over at a pair of spanxx in my drawer, which I own because Oprah told me I should own some. But I don’t want to go “there” just yet. I can do this.

After 10-15 minutes of grunts and using my bed as some sort of leverage, I finally lie down and let out a “mother faaaaaaaa!” (…too tired to finish the phrase).

I catch my breath, and feel the sun peering in from the window. Ya know what? Fuck it; let’s wear a dress. We’ll class this shit up. I peel off the tightly gripped pants, take deep breaths and slip on a dress.

Then upon closer examination of my legs I see that I haven’t shaved in a pretty good amount of time. Not classy. And before I can think of changing again I say “Screw it! You’re late! It’s Austin—keep it weird—keep it weird, it’s cool. Bahh! Let’s go!”

I get into my car, start the engine, look down at my stubbly legs and mumble “damn it…stupid pants” along the way to my destination.
