I woke up very tired today, I didn’t want to do anything, but I had told myself I would clean today. The apartment smelled like dog, and it hurt because the dog wasn’t here anymore, he went home with his master yesterday. I thought cleaning and getting the smell out would make it all normal, like he didn’t spend five day here with us, so I started to clean. I cleaned the whole apartment, but as I cleaned I felt weird because I didn’t have any company.
While he was here, Robin was always next to me, following me around the apartment and sitting next to me. Even when I closed a door, he waited on the other side until I opened it. I didn’t feel alone for one second during those five days because I had someone to talk when no one else was here.
I never talk when I’m alone, except a curse word here or there, but I talked to him. I know he didn’t understand me and couldn’t respond, but I talked to him and sometimes he looked at me and barked. It felt great not being alone all day, having someone by my side, wondering where he was now, and even telling him Robin, NO!

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.
