I have issues, issues with too many people around me. I was at the gym tonight and it was very, very, really full of people. I almost left, but as I was going to get my water bottle I noticed one person leaving, so I stood there for a second and thought, I need to stop looking for excuses; I’m already here and I’m almost done. The people aren’t being a problem, it’s me who has the problem, and I’m the one complaining because I gained 8 pounds.
I must have looked like an idiot walking around not deciding what to do, but I decided to stay, besides the machines that were full were the treadmills, which are what I use to do Cardio at the end of my workout. So I stayed, finished my routine and when I looked, the treadmills were empty.
As my stepdad always tells me when I get all nervous and make decisions really fast, stop and think about it. If I would have walked out I would be feeling guilty for not finishing and tomorrow, I would complain about gaining weight.
Just think about it before you make decisions.

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.

You’re right, Kiki. I myself can be too impulsive when making decisions and sometimes don’t consider that there are better options available. And especially, we have to be positive.

I always try to be positive but sometimes I don’t think about things too much, but I really should
