5 Great Hangout Places in Glendale California

Hi guys! 
If you find yourself stranded in Glendale, CA; have no fear! Just head to one of these hip spots and you'll live. Haha...

Seriously though, next time you are going out with your friends, you should try one of these places. Im sure you will enjoy yourselves here. So, in no particular order, here are 5 great hangout places in Glendale, California. 

1. Octopus Japanese Restaurant -  I personally love their stake rolls (pictured below), the salmon, and the alaskan roll. So, so good, you don't even know! If you get a chance to go here, try these items. Also, the miso soup is really yummy.  

2. Pinkberry - its in a great place at the Americana on Brand. You can sit-in or get a spot outside in one of the tables or sit in the park area of the mall. I love it. The picture below is my usual order. Small original flavor yogurt, with blueberries, watermelon, crunchy melted chocolate (this scoop is an extra 50 cents, and I do not know the real name of it, lol), waffle cookie all drizzled with honey. Its the BOMB! 

3. Hot Dog on a Stick - at the Glendale Galleria. Its in the third floor where its usually not packed with people. They have tables and there where you can enjoy your food and your delicious lemonade. I really love their original flavor lemonade, best part is that its made with real lemons, sugar and water. Thats it. The other flavors have flavoring added but this one does not. One of the workers mentioned that the fries are the same ones that McDonalds uses but that they use "better" oil. I thought this was funny.

4. Richie Palmer's Pizza - this is also at the Americana on Brand mall. They have a sitting area and its very relaxing sitting with your friends next to the huge fountain on the side. I really liked this pizza, even though it looks super plain, its very yummy. I believe this is the New York Cheese Pizza. Recommend!

5. Billiards Corner - on S. Central St.; the workers here are always polite and friendly. Its a great environment to have some beers, snacks/appetizers, and play some pool! It does not get packed here, but theres always people there so it never feels like its lonely. 

Thats all folks!

5 Traditional Mexican Hats

After my last post about the Ricky Ricardo Straw hat, I became interested in other types of hats worn in different parts of the world. So here are 5 traditional hats worn in Mexico.

1. The Mariachi Hat The Mariachi hat is usually worn by someone that is a part of a Mariachi group. The hat is part of the typical Mariachi outfit. Compared to the charro hat (see below), the mariachi hat is much more elaborate and fancy looking. However, as with many other things, it varies. By the way, check out the details, on those hats! Prettyful.

2. The Charro Hat When I think of a Charro, what comes to mind is a Mariachi singer. However, Charros are usually men that participate in Rodeo Competitions. Also, I noticed that sombreros de charro are usually less decorated than those worn by Mariachi groups. 

3. The Vaquero Hat This is probably one of the most well known Mexican hats because these hats are usually used to depict the cowboy image.  Here's a spanish lesson for ya: Un vaquero = A cowboy

4. Th…

Review: Pizza Hut's Tuscani Pasta - Creamy Chicken Alfredo

Hi there Dear friends,  Today I bring you a food review that I just had to share! I feel I must share this with you because I was pleasantly surprised on how good this was. It's Pizza Hut's Tuscani Pasta in Creamy Chicken Alfredo. I have personally never tried these pastas, so I was skeptical. However, on this particular day  was at Targe and was starving because I had not eaten all morning. Thus, I decided to try this pasta. 
 I am happy to report that, yes, this is very creamy. It also has a good amount of chicken in it, which makes it that more filling. The top is somewhat crusty and when you get past it, its where the sauciness comes to play. The taste of the actual Alfredo sauce is also very flavorful and delicious. 
They say that when you are extremely hungry, everything tastes good. BUT, I can tell you that to me this creamy pasta was very delicious and definitely would recommended. So, if one sad day, you find yourself at Target with an empty stomach, do not hesitate …

The Routine...

As students, we all have that dreaded period where everything seems to pile up with no sign of slowing down. We also all have that friend that just seems to always forget they're a student and who happens drag you down their own stress lane without giving a second thought that you might be stressing too. "Hey, I have my own stressors ok! Calm down and get it together!" Haha. Steering back to course, here is a short story written and inspired by one such friend during our high school years. 
The red velvet curtains open up to a heavily breathing boy with sweat dripping down the sides of his temples:
"Oh, no! No, no, no!" cried Edgar an early morning.
"What happened?" said Rita tilting her head with an i-know-what-you-did kind of look. "Its my homework-- I..." "You didn't do it and its an essay thats due today by 3rd period" Rita said quickly interrupting Edgar. "Ha! Yes." Answered Edgar with a half guilty smile. "I did…
