Yesterday I started learning how to code, in codeacademy.com. It’s free and with all the free time I have, you know not having a job or anything, I can dedicate some time to learning something that is very useful right now, especially if I ever plan of hosting this blog anywhere besides WordPress.
Knowing how to write is not getting me any jobs and I don’t want to be negative, I try my best not to be, but this is getting really frustrating. I never expected this and I wont blame the accident because what happened, happened and I’m ok now, but come on. I’m writing every day, I’m offering freelance writing and I’m trying to write a book, but who knows when that will be done and if it’s any good, so I have to learn how to do something else.
I don’t like to write angry posts and I haven’t given up and I will keep doing everything I can to get my life back together, I am unstoppable, but when something is not working you have to try something else. I don’t know if learning how to code will take me anywhere, but it’s something I will be able to add to my skills and it’s pretty interesting.
If I’m not working, at least I have to be learning something.

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.
