Recently, I've found myself on the website I Waste So Much Time, understandably, wasting so much time. Where I expected cat .gifs and other methods of procatination, I found this amazing post that turned out to be in no way a waste of time.

On September 5th, “Desperate Housewives” actress Eva Longoria will be receiving this year’s Hispanic Heritage Award, as presented by the Hispanic Heritage Foundation. What’s amazing about this is that Longoria is one of three women who are receiving this award. Voto Latino CEO/President, Maria Teresa Kumar, and Actress/Singer Lucero will be receiving the 26th Hispanic Heritage Awards as well. The Hispanic Heritage Foundation announced the winners this past Friday. The other recipients include filmmaker/actor Diego Luna, chef José Andrés, musical group, Lost Tigres del Norte, race-car driver...
