Now that my new kitchen is almost ready, I have to start getting used to cooking again. As I’ve mentioned before, using the stove or oven was prohibited for me after the accident because of the epilepsy. Also, I don’t want to think about what would have happened if I ever left the stove or oven on.
Once I reached my two years seizure free I had plans to do so many things I wasn’t allowed to do alone before, like cooking but to be honest, I really haven’t. I still stick mostly to my microwave only menu just because it’s easier except for a few easy things.
I really should have gotten more used to really using the kitchen because now that I’m going to have mine I have no excuse not to cook. Today I started sort of practicing and instead of re-heating the left over pizza on the microwave I had some shrimp and French fries. There was not a lot of cooking but I had to use the oven for both.
It was no big deal but it’s a little bit more effort than using the microwave. I’ll be taking baby steps until I have MY kitchen and I can cook whatever I want, whenever I want.
What’s for lunch?
It’s so exiting!

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.
