It's time for a new blog title.

I've been thinking about this for some time and I have decided that "Peace signs are a way of life" doesn't really describe the kind of person that I am anymore. I am still all about peace and love, but I think I've moved on to something deeper.

Now, I know at first glance, my new title "Confessions of a Tacoholic" doesn't sound very deep, but really there's more to it than the face value of the title implies. I got my nickname "taco" back in 10th grade because I am half Hispanic. At first I was a little offended because I didn't like that being Hispanic automatically associated me with tacos, especially since I'm from Guatemala and we don't eat tacos very much at all. Now if they had called me pache or tortilla, that would have been much more accurate. Anyway the point is that I've embraced this title as a way to show my latina pride. Over the years I've grown to know who I am as a person and I am grown to love my heritage. Now, I feel that my blog should reflect the new me, the new person that I feel like inside. Yes, I'll still be blogging about generally the same things, and now with my new title I won't feel pressured to only talk about peace and love, because frankly I've run out of things to say!

Confessions of a Tacoholic - welcome to my daily confessions of what it's like to be a "taco" in this world from my crazy latina mother problems to struggling with self identity to empowering others to just straight up telling jokes George Lopez style. This is where you get to see the real Candace Avalos.
