Thank you for passing by!!!

Hello!! My name is Dulce!! I'm 18 years old and I'm from Jalisco, Mexico but I'm currently living in California, United States. I study Peace and Conflicts at University of California, Berkeley. Go Bears!
I love to draw!!! Ever since I was small I had a natural passion for drawing and almost everything that has to do with art. I'm kind of crazy but Im nice :) ... at least that what I believe :P
I really love when people try to figure out what my drawings mean or why did I draw what I drew ;P it's really interesting to hear their theories :)

Interests
    I am Dulce.
    Not kidding, that is my name.
    It might not be reflected on my personality, but it can be reflected on what I eat. Pretty much give me anything that's sweet--and that is not hard candy mint flavor or dried ginger--and I will eat it. From fruits, pastries, candies, and ice-creams: if they have sugar, they are edible.
    Because of my name sometimes I am tempted to introduce myself by singing "El ritmo que traigo es azucar. Azucar pa ti!" (Kumbia Kings "Azuquitar"), but living in a predominantly English-speaking space, the chances that they will get my joke are pretty low.
    Not being able to present myself as I want because of language barrier, makes me think about the difference between Dulce speaking Spanish and Dulce speaking English. Both are different people.
    In Spanish I think faster. I am a better leader and allow myself to have longer conversations: I'm not afraid to talk. In Spanish, I feel at home and I am in a comfortable atmosphere.
    In English, sometimes it takes so long to remember a word or to form a sentence that by the time I arrange my thoughts... my time to talk has passed.
     But Dulce is Dulce. You might think of Dolce and Gabanna, the traditional dulce de leche, or just some foreign thing that happens to translate as "sweet" or "candy."
    For these reasons, I feel that "Candy de Xocolate" is a proper name for my blog.
Candy is not only a translation of my name, but a reason of my name. My mom loves this "cartoon" (anime) call Candy Candy. It is pretty old. It was showed in Canal 5 back in Mexico. She liked the anime so much that she named me Dulce, translation of Candy because she did not wanted to sound to "Americanized." I thank her so much for not naming me Candy! Thanks to my mother's love for that "cartoon" I was introduced to anime. I LOVE anime with a passion--yeap, I am an Otaku.
    Sometimes, when people ask me for my name, they ask me what kind of dulce am I. "Are you dulce de leche, fresa...?" I like to say that I am chocolate.
    Chocolate is such an awesome thing.
    Chocolate begins as cacao, a bitter food, not appealing. You have to work with it through various processeses in order to make it into those delicious chocolate bars. That is how I feel life is like. You sometimes have horrible challenges, but you have to work with them, be patient and dedicate yourself to solve the problem and then, at the end, you can get awesome results!
   Chocolate is not only gives us a life lesson. It has a history of coming and being used by our Mexican ancestors. Chocolate is so present in Mexican culture that it was call el manjar de los Dioses!
  Chocolate breaks some language barriers. If you read the word in English, Spanish, or Japanese, we all know what you are talking about. You might pronounce it chocolate, choklet, or chokolato... they all mean **chocolate**!
   Plus, chocolate is brown, like me! I could have said that I am a dulce de leche, but I do not have fair skin... I am not pinkesh to be dulce de leche... I could have said I am dulce de caramelo... and I did thought like that.. but I couldn't find caramel as symbolically rich as chocolate. And yeah, that's why I am a dulce de chocolate.
  Oh, why the "X"? Because among Xicanos, the "X" is so central to our identification with our indigenous roots. For instance, Jalisco was not "Jalisco," before it was called "Xalisco"--that is the original name until people decided that "J" was better... and thus, forgot about the indigenous root of a name--what a shame, names are so sacred as to be changed like that. I also like to identify with indigenous identity because, when living back in Mexico, I used to work in the fields and I had the honor to work with many indigenous people. Until now, I have never met anyone who knows such wise and interesting ideas as my community back in Mexico did. I still sometimes wonder how they knew so many things!
    Now, you might be thinking, "well, you said this was a self description, not a biography," but I just thought this needed to be done in order to describe myself. I am someone who likes to conversate a lot. I tend to like to entertain people. I am proud of my roots. I am an Otaku, a slight obsession with Asian culture, especially Japan and South and North Korea. I am an artist. I am a singer. I am Mexican, Chicana, Latina, Tapatia. I am passionate about social change. I am a citizen of the world.

Love Cage by CandyDeChocolate
Love Cage

**English in the bottom. Español al principio**

ESPA˜NOL/SPANISH

Me da miedo
que dependa tanto en ti
al punto que no me importa
lo que hagas de mi.

Me da miedo
lo que me convierto 
cuando estoy junto a ti.
Y me da miedo,
la influencia que tienes en mi.

Me quieras o no,
me haces tu gorrión--
vulnerable a tu recuerdo,
a tus palabras,
a tu voz...

Me hago dócil. 

Me atrapas--
me dejo atrapar--
me enjaulas,
te dejo cortar mis alas.

Eres una pesadilla
cubierta en chocolate,
un demonio
que me invita a envolverme
en este sentimiento agridulce.

Aunque rompas mi corazón,
no me importa el daño.
Las piezas son hermosas,
como de cristal.

Te amo,
y te tengo en mi mente.
Te odio,
y te sigo pensando.

Me odio
por pensarte
y entre más te pienso
más te quiero.

Me tortura tu recuerdo,
tu maldito recuerdo.

Y aún así,
sigo pintando
tus días de color.
Continuó dedicando
a ti mi canción.

Sigo atrapada
en la jaula de tu amor--
en esa jaula que me conduce
a la obsesión.

ENGLISH/INGLES:

It makes me afraid
how much I depend on you
to the point that I do not care
what you do of me.

It makes me afraid
what I become when I am with you.
And it makes me afraid
the influence you have in me.

Whether you like me or not,
you make me your bird--
vulnerable to your memory,
your words,
your voice...

I become docile.

You catch me--
I let you catch me--
You trapp me,
I let you cut my wings.

You are a nightmare
cover in chocolate,
a demon
that invites me
to this bittersweet feeling.

Even if you break my heart,
I do not care about the pain.
The pieces are beautiful,
like crystals.

I love you
and I have you in my mind.
I hate you
and I continue thinking about you.

I hate myself
for thinking about you
and the more I think about you,
the more I want you.

Your memory tortures me,
your fucking memory.

And yet,
I still color
your days of color.
I continue dedicating
my song to you.

I continue trapped
in your love cage--
in this cage that leads me
to obsession.

Casa y Recuerdo by CandyDeChocolate
Casa y Recuerdo
For my Visual Art class we were ask to make a project on "Casa y Recuerdo." I thought about drawing "El Cerro del Petacal," a hill located just a few minutes away in front of my agricultural field where I used to work at.
As time passes by, I have realized how meaningful this place is for me. In here, I did not only worked in agriculture, I was also part of the tequila industry. Though it is a dangerous drink, it is part of a culture and Jalisco's pride. 
In here, I got to interact with very poor communities who, despite not having gone to school, they were very wise. I got to witness injustices, seeing American farm companies establishing themselves in foreign territories, employing many indigenous people who could not even speak Spanish and would be exploited by their managers making them over work, forcing them to live under terrible circumstances, and pay them less than $10 dollars per week! I got and continue seeing Monsanto poisoning our seeds and affecting our farmers, making the rich richer and the poor poorer. Nutrillite appropriating territories and workers in El Petacal in order to sell "quality" products for cheaper prices. The misery that people would have to go through is the reason why they migrated to "El Norte." This place means generations of hard work and kids without parents because they would migrate to US in order to.give their children a better life and get them out of the fate each generation has gone through: working in agriculture, a job that though it is so important is not valued. And yet, no one would do anything. For Me, El Cerro del Petacal does not only means good memories or a pair of rough working hands, but it is the reason why I wanted to achieve higher education, my passion for helping others, my inspiration to achieve my goals, and the reason for who I am.
Despite everything, this is my home, with good and bad memories. My home is not a building, because it is only when I am with nature that I feel I am myself, at peace.
I did this painting on a paper bag and acrylic paint. I used this material because I think of acrylic paint as one of the cheapest and basic art materials (or I just bought the cheapest one) and I feel that memories are just so normal, basic in daily life. I also did it on paper bag because, just as that paper, memories are so fragile, easy to be transformed. Therefore, I put a frame around the painting because, as happy memories, we want to treasure and value them.


Si pudiera, volaria hacía allá para poder sentir la tierra en mis manos, oír a los pájaros cantar, oler la tierra mojada después de una lluvia y me doy cuenta de lo fuerte que abrazo a el recuerdo y lo difícil que es encontrar otro lugar así--como casa.
