I have a little problem now. I’m having trouble knowing when people are being serious and when they’re joking. I get angry at people, and then it turns out they were just kidding. There was nothing to be mad about.
I thought it was better and I was getting the hang of it again, I thought I knew when people were joking, but it happened again today. This time I think I went too far.
Today I hit my stepdad. It wasn’t like I punched him or anything, I just hit his arm. I didn’t get he was joking and I got really frustrated. It was just my first reaction to make him listen to me. I guess I felt we are so comfortable around each other, it was ok.
After I hit him I knew I went too far. I never hit anybody, but I thought he would kind of get that I didn’t think his joke was funny. Obviously that didn’t happen. I went too far. I let my frustration get too far and I didn’t think clearly. I was in the wrong and I don’t know how to apologize for not showing him the respect I have for him. I have to work on that.
But now that I’m thinking clearly, I would like to apologize. I’m sorry Jose, I love you, and you deserve much more respect from me.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
