It’s been approximately three years since my little Layla was born and almost two years since I started at CSU East Bay. I’ve been juggling the roles of a full-time student and full-time mom, while also working a part-time job. There’s great joy in becoming a mother, I think everyone knows that,...

However, that is not the case at Cal State East Bay, where students frequent their university library. According to CSUEB Library’s statistics, almost 1.16 million...

Summer quarter beats all other seasons

Summer quarter is the best. The halls are empty and the parking spots are plentiful. When I was young, from elementary school to college, I hated summer school. How cruel it was to be locked in a classroom all day, while the sun peered through the window calling my name. I used to be afraid of miss...

I used to have baby fever, until I started babysitting. I’m not talking about a once-in-awhile babysitting gig for date nights. No, I mean eight-hour shifts, multiple days a week for three different families. Sometimes for two families in one day, all consisting of children six months to four yea...

I’m in the middle of work, and I get a phone call. Usually, I don’t answer calls from numbers I don’t know, but this was different. It was an area code from my hometown Los Angeles, so I was under the impression a family member was giving me a call, so I answered. The caller on the other en...
