Congratulations to the USC Class of 2014!! It has been another year for many USC students! As I was driving to work (on top of being a USC graduate student, I also have the privilege of working as USC staff), I noticed the smiles that many students on this campus shared with each other, friends, and families.
I’m sure by now all of you have heard about Conchinta Wurst, the 2014 Eurovision winner. I admit, as of 4 days ago, I was not familiar with the Eurovision program. It wasn’t until my boyfriend showed me a YouTube video of Conchinta’s AMAZING performance that made me drop my jaw! Not only was I amazed (and surprised that the silhouette figure was a male) but the voice behind the performer blew me away! She definitely RISED LIKE A PHOENIX!
Carlsbad, California (CNN) — A major firefighting offensive Thursday sought to douse wildfires that have so far charred 9,987 acres in California’s San Diego County, with the worst being a nearly uncontrollable blaze in San Marcos.
And so he returned!
After almost 2 years of hiatus, I have decided to return to the world of blogging. First and foremost, I would like to apologize for my departure as I underestimated the workload of being a Master of Social Work graduate student. With a full-time job, internships, meetings, studying, and a relationship in between, I never realized the extent of how much time it took to blog a simple post!
After 2 years of absence, the original creator of THE SOCIAL REACTION will return.
New Experiences. New Agenda. New Reactions.

We have one more week to plan out the most important day of our lives….MOTHER’S DAY! Now I don’t know about you, but my mom is my #1 woman in my life. My mom has supported me through everything and anything that Life has brought me. Coming out to my mom about 10 years ago (wow, I just realized it’s been 10 years) was one of the best feelings I felt throughout my entire life! I feel like since I came out to her one Summer evening, our relationship has brought us a lot closer. I can share and talk to her, pretty much, about everything! I also thank her for a lot of my successes as she has been my prime supporter (both morally and financially). Without my mom, I don’t know where I would be today. Continue reading
Ever wonder why you are the only one out of your group of gay friends who does not have a boyfriend? Or, is it possible that you came across the idea that you are not THAT bad in the market, and wonder why others have the hottest guys, leaving you alone on a Friday night? Luckily for me, I met Mi Amor at the time when we used to work for the same company. It’s actually a story that we enjoy reminding each other about and love telling others. But for your favor, I’m here to help you out! So, here’s a few GREAT ideas on HOW TO FIND YOU A MAN! Continue reading
Ever thought about creating your own Gay & Lesbian Center? I have! I came across a blog today that gave me a sense of inspiration. The following article was published from the Hanford Sentinel and looks into the development of the Hanford Gay and Lesbian Center. Continue reading
In Houston, ballet folklorico dancers will ring in Cinco de Mayo by stomping to traditional Mexican music in a city park. New York City will close parts of Spanish Harlem and Queens for street fairs as Mexican flags flap from apartment fire escapes and car antennas. Albuquerque honors the day with a Mariachi concert and free cab rides for those who show their love for Mexico with a little too much Dos Equis XX or tequila.
Even West Des Moines, Iowa, has an all-day festival with Mexican food, artwork and live music. Continue reading
