Goodbye Chiques!


My manuscript!!

My summer in my hometown is coming to an end. I’m returning to my second home in the Midwest!! Now, the real question did I get anything done here. In my previous blog entry, I stated I was working on many different projects. Especially, my manuscriptSearching For Memories In La Colonia: Migration, Labor, And Activism In Oxnard, California, 1930-1980.

And like all of my projects, I only focus on a couple sections at a time. So, in other words, yes I got somethings done on them!! And between the walking, reading, and writings, I spend sometime with my familia!

File Jun 23, 9 02 15 PMLike always, every summer, I return to blogging. The summer allows me to practice my writing skills and share my research & thoughts about the world around me to everyone.

Right now, I’m in Chiques hanging out with my family. My goal is to work on the following projects:

  1. Searching For Memories In La ColoniaMigration, Labor, And Activism In Oxnard, California, 1930-1980 (manuscript)
  2. “Aliens” In Ohio: Constructing The Narrative Of Mexicans In The Midwest, the 1930’s—1950’s (article)
  3. Cruisin’ With Los Veteranos: Community And Identity In Southern California (article)

Hopefully, I finish something. Plus, I’m enjoying eating some Mexican food!!
