The day finally came, started painting the apartment today. We began in my room, but before that we had to cover any holes on the walls with putty, which I had started, but somehow there were still some left.
When we were done with that, we each had a different chore to paint the room with primer; my mom took a roller with an extension pole so she could reach the higher places on the walls, my aunt was painting the corners with a brush and I had the lower part of the walls with another roller with a regular frame.
Maybe it was because it didn’t have to be perfect and just needed one coat or because we divided the work between the three of us, but we were done in no time.
Today we just started painting but I’m not going to keep my walls white with primer, now I need to pick out the colors. I know the bathroom will be green and the kitchen will be a sort of beige but I still haven’t decided on my room and the living room. I have a lot of color collections we got from Home Depot so I have to sit down with them and choose.
There are so many colors and maybe I will pick a color today and change my mind tomorrow. On the other hand, this is great therapy for me helping me with my quick thinking to make decisions fast and doing all the work around the apartment.
I’ll let you know what colors choose tomorrow.

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.
