    Hi Luis, I totally agree that women can do just as much as men. We are learning about the 1920s and reading The Great Gatsby in class right now, and I find flappers particularly interesting. They were really bold and brave to break out of the mold that society put them in, and do what they really wanted to do. I especially liked their choice of…[Read more]

    Hi Luis, it is great that you have such an organized daily routine. I have a daily routine as well. I find that stretching and doing exercises in the morning is a great way to wake up and not weird at all. It seems like you are quite busy after school.

  • Hi Rolando, this is very interesting. I have never heard of Korean tacos before either. Is the fact that Koreans make their tacos in a grill the only difference between their tacos and American tacos? Also like you said, I was expecting them to taste different. Have you tried them before?
