After two months in quarantine I went back to work on Monday and things are a lot different than they were two months ago. There are less people around but those few of us are still distancing from each other, wearing masks, constantly cleaning and washing our hands or using hand sanitizer.
While it feels weird being out wearing a mask and seeing others wearing theirs too, we are each doing what we can to regain a little bit of normalcy in our lives but still making the necessary adjustments to stay safe and keep others safe.
I struggled with the masks during the first two days but it wasn’t me, it was them. The masks I thought were one size fits all are too big for me but yesterday I got a smaller one which fits perfectly. Now I feel more safe and comfortable, even if I’m still getting used to wearing it.
I know this is not going back to normal anytime soon, even though we all wish it would, but hopefully after this will come a new normal, a better normal.

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.
