I am Vero (Veh-roll the R-oh). This is a personal blog of random things. I love my yorkies, my family, politics, fighting for social justice and making people wonder what I’m up too. Hip Hop and Classic House are the sound track to my life. Chicago is where I cause all the ruckus.

My camera roll betrays my love of ice cream. I can’t resist it it anywhere including on the road, at work, served on fancy plates or at a paleteria. #guiltypleasure #thingsthat

megaparsecs:

i just wanted to put this out there since im sure it’ll get written about differently tomorrow. 

When I was 12 boys slid their hand up my thigh and slapped my butt. I smiled and took it because I didn’t know it was okay to say stop. I didn’t know that I could say no. So, when the principal calls telling me my daughter is suspended for punching a boy who wouldn’t stop touching her, I will cook her favorite meals. When she tells me how she cursed at the boy who wouldn’t move his hands off her knee even though she asked him to, I will smile and pull out her favorite movie to watch together. I will celebrate the fact that she accepts her body as her own and knows she has the right to say no. I never want my daughter to think her body belongs to men, because it is her own and my god should she be proud. I will teach her it’s more than okay to say stop, something I wish I had known when I was that age.

You know it’s serious when every text message starts with your name.

"Vero, When were you going to tell me….."
"Vero, What do you mean you…."
"Vero, Are you going to answer me or not?"
"Vero? hello?"

"VERO!"
