Today was a great day, a Saturday that did not involve going to the supermarket. Instead, we went to the beach!
Once again, the governor opened the beaches after being closed for about two months because of the coronavirus. I’m all for taking the necessary precautions to stop the spread of the virus but I don’t think it was necessary to close the beaches. It doesn’t spread in salt water or in that much heat.
Every time she had a press conference, I hoped she would say something about the beaches until she finally said something on Thursday. She said they would open today. We didn’t know if it would be full but we had to try, we had to go.
We found a spot in Piñones, another one of our beautiful beaches, that wasn’t crowded. There were other families but far away from each other. Outside the water, people wore masks.
Going to the beach this morning, even if it was just for a few hours, was what I needed. Being outside, forced to be away from my phone while in the water, and getting some vitamin D, was a lot of fun.
I really hope the governor doesn’t close them again!

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.
