Happy Birthday to me!

Today I have another reason to celebrate, this time I'm celebrating because yesterday was my birthday. I always love my birthday no matter how old I am. I still feel like a child when it's my birthday; this year I had to act like an adult because I was at work but my boss and … Continue reading Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Mother’s Day

First of all, Happy Mother's Day to all mothers. We couldn't be alive without you, like, literally. Thank you for everything else you do, after we get to this crazy world.

Seven years later…

I didn't think about it, but writing this brings a lot of old feelings back. I can't help but look back at the last seven years of my life, at least what I can remember of them and the worst moments come to mind. From that very first memory that always makes me sad and … Continue reading Seven years later…

NFL Linebacker talks about his life changing decision

Last night I listened to a podcast on BUCKIT, by Phil Keoghan (he's the host on the Amazing Race), where he spoke with former NFL player Chris Borland, which was surprisingly very interesting. I say surprisingly because I didn't know who Chris Borland was before just now, he's a retired football player, and I don't … Continue reading NFL Linebacker talks about his life changing decision

That short morning workout

After a pretty good long weekend, I was able to wake up half an hour earlier this morning and workout again before going to work. I surprised myself by not only waking up, but actually doing more than my previous 15 minutes, which was also my goal for today. This morning I worked out for … Continue reading That short morning workout

“My first memory”

I was trying to do some cleaning today in my room, trying to get rid of some of the junk I didn't throw away when we moved, when I found something that immediately caught my attention. I was fascinated when I found some of the essays and stories I wrote in college . I thought … Continue reading “My first memory”

Good morning!

Last night I decided to do something I have been thinking about for a long time but I just couldn't get myself to do: wake up earlier to work out. I didn't think I would wake up, I have set the same goal before and haven't heard the alarm, but I miraculously did it today! … Continue reading Good morning!

Four Years Seizure Free!

I can finally say it, I am four years seizure free! Thanks mostly to my wonderful neurologist for finding the right medication, keeping me on it, Sonexus Health Pharmacy for helping me get the medicine, and everyone around me for making sure I have my medicine. It's just incredible, literally, I can't believe I've made … Continue reading Four Years Seizure Free!

That one weird Uber ride

I love using Uber, it's the easiest way to get to and back from work and the great majority of times they are very pleasant rides with very nice people. Most Uber drivers are nice and start a conversation, which makes the ride a lot better and less awkward. But from time to time there's … Continue reading That one weird Uber ride

You write your own story

I read an article today that inspired me and I want to follow the write's example. maybe my take on his message may seem a little bit angrier but maybe I was sort of venting while I wrote this: As my emotions have gotten more stable during these seven years after my brain injury there … Continue reading You write your own story

When the smoke detector goes off

I came home from work very hungry and wanted to cook something quickly, so I decided to go with shrimp and french fries. I usually just put these in the oven and toaster oven and they're done in less than 20 minutes; it's very easy and that's just what I wanted. The only problem was … Continue reading When the smoke detector goes off

Finally got my entertainment center!

Last weekend I found one of the missing pieces for my apartment, the entertainment center. I wasn't really looking for it so desperately because I didn't know what I wanted and my TV was already hanging on the wall, but I did need somewhere to put the DVD and the cable connection. So I found … Continue reading Finally got my entertainment center!

Almost there!

This morning I woke up earlier than usual, even though I had a long day at work because today I had an appointment with my neurologist. It was just a routine checkup, to let him know how everything is going and of course I was very proud to tell him that, if everything keeps going … Continue reading Almost there!
