I started a very small garden on my apartment balcony, I have tomatoes, basil and cilantro. The cilantro is growing fast and so is the tomato plant. I can't wait to eat some home grown food. It takes me back to the days where I would harvest food with my dad.
I want to try growing some peppers and some cucumbers. I think I will start experimenting with different fruits and veggies. :D

At the beginning of the year when we were talking about teaching our students Spanish I was excited about the idea but I was scared for myself. My mom always told me that I spoke pocho Spanish, and at that, it was Splanglish. I am the youngest of 3 and I learned English first because of my sisters, Spanish was the side language. I was not proud of my Spanish growing up, i wanted to have proper vocabulary. So in high school I began my studying and all the way through college but nothing has helped more than having to teach it to others, and now my Spanish isn't too shabby ;)
