Today, our new walking group bailed on us so my mom and I decided to pick our own walking route. We thought is would be better to walk outside, not in a parking lot so we went nearby to my grandparents neighborhood. It’s safe, it’s open and my mom knows her way around because she grew up there.
We walked for two miles always trying to walk faster, without running. It was getting dark out so we had to be careful and that’s why I didn’t even think about saying anything about making it to three miles or running.
It was a very good walk but I still had to do my T25 video when I got home. I was lucky because today’s video was abs. That one had a little running but it wasn’t bad.
I liked the change in our weekly routine and seeing new sides of a place I have known all my life. I had never seen some of the streets and houses we walked by, while we walked by others I have been seeing for thirty years. I also enjoyed how we changed the plans so last minute and I was able to deal with it so easily. This was better because it wasn’t as hot as it is in the parking lot. But a change of plans last minute is usually not that easy to deal with for me anymore so good for me!
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.
