Well, it’s finally here, the day that marks the beginning of Christmas, my favorite time of year. I started early but now it’s official, now it’s officially the happiest time of the year and we can all be jolly. There’s lights everywhere, there’s lights, music, friends, family and food, very good food.
Today I’m thankful for my family, my friends and my dogs, for everyone being happy and healthy and just for having them in my life. I’m also very thankful for my health and still being seizure free, even while I had a couple of falls earlier this month.
But after saying all that, it’s not Thanksgiving without a delicious turkey, arroz con gandules (tradition in Puerto Rico), potatoes and flan and a chocolate dessert.
In preparation to all that, I made the choice to wear stretchy pants today which allowed me to eat everything I was served.
I didn’t go back for seconds but I had so much food on that plate that my cousin bet me I couldn’t finish it. I proved her wrong and ate it all.
It worked, I had a big plate of food and didn’t feel bad about it. It was a great Thanksgiving, until now. The power just went out but looking on the bright side, we have a generator so everything is just fine. Great day!!!

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.
