Today, as I was looking for more freelance jobs, something came over me and I decided to go after that internship I applied to this weekend. I called them because they had shown interest but never called me. Turns out they had been calling me, at the wrong number.
After I gave them my correct number, and talking for a while about the company and the position, I got it! They will be sending me more information soon.
I’m still trying to understand what happened and what I was thinking because I am usually scared to do that sort of thing. If they haven’t called me or said anything else I don’t pick up the phone and call, but for some reason today I did and I think that simple decision will bring some very good things to my life. I will be writing, writing for an audience, a bigger audience than my blog or anything else I have ever written. This can bring some very big and positive changes to my life and I am so happy. This is what I have been waiting for, a chance to write about what I love, to share it with a big audience, to work with likeminded people, and to learn from them.
I got an internship, I have two puppies and today I am officially one year and eight months seizure free!!!!!

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 go, girl! Call. Always call. That’s what my Mom used to tell me. The wrong phone thing happens a lot and you also reminded them of yourself and let them know how interested you were in their internship.
One year and eight months seizure free! Wonderful news, Kiki. Congratulations, sweetie.
She was right, if I didn’t call I would just lose that chance.
I still can’t believe it, the internship or the 20 months seizure free!!
