Don’t sweat the small stuff. My mother used to say that, I guess. In Spanish, the equivalent to ‘don’t sweat the small stuff’ is ‘No te ahogues en un vaso de agua’, literally, ‘don’t drown yourself in a cup of water.” – Daisy Hernández

Daisy Hernández is a Journalist, Associate Professor of Creative Writing at Northwestern University and the author of The Kissing Bug, which won the PEN/Jean Stein Book Award and was selected as an inaugural title for the National Book Foundation’s Science + Literature Program.
