I did not have Microsoft Word in my new computer, but I thought I could survive with OneDrive; that was until today. I tried to create a document for my job, but my computer just opened it in Pages, and my boss couldn’t do anything when I sent it to her. After this, I felt forced to download the trial version of Microsoft Office.
I didn’t want to do this because after a month I will have to pay for it, but I can’t go on without Word, it’s just not an option. Apart from having issues with not having apps like Microsoft Word for a few days, I’m loving this small, and not heavy at all computer. I thought this would be very difficult for me to get used to. I do have a little bit of trouble getting used to changes now, but that’s the same reason I wanted a computer similar to my previous one.
But I am impressed with myself for being able to get used to this change, even if it is something so small, and being open to new things, such as choosing a pink computer case. I was surprised too but there was no green.
All of this may seem stupid or very silly to write about, but it is a very big change and improvement for me, and I hope that this will help me keep improving at my job.

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.
