Thanksgiving is only a week away, and that makes me nervous this year. My parents are hosting Thanksgiving this year, that means I will also welcome the family in my new apartment and that is just a little nerve-racking.
I have only had a few visitors here and three of them were impressed because they knew what this space used to be and last time they saw it they knew is was a storage room. The other one was impressed because she has more stuff than me at the apartment she just moved into. It was impressive in both cases, which made me feel great about it, but this time there will be more people.
It’s just going to be family and I won’t be making turkey, that’s my mom’s job in her house, but it’s still more people and I think I’m going to have to at least offer them something. I already have what I’m making for desert but I still have to make it and I still don’t know if and what I should serve as appetizers if anybody wants any. I usually don’t have many responsibilities on Thanksgiving Day, except eating, which is my favorite part. But if people are coming, even if they’re just in my apartment for a few minutes to see it, it has to look great.
I already did my Saturday morning cleaning but I think I’m going to have to take another look around and be more thorough just in case before I clean again on Wednesday.

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.
