I hope you got to enjoy the weirder that usual Thanksgiving, and got to see at least some of your loved ones with safety precautions or on Zoom, WhatsApp, FaceTime or some other video calling app.
After eating a slightly larger than usual lunch yesterday, I decided that even though it was a holiday, I had to keep to my daily routine of exercising. I didn’t actually stick to the routine because I just did one video and walked for ten minutes but as long as I did something and didn’t miss a day of the T25 routine, I think I’m good.
But today I paid my price for taking it easy yesterday, because today is Friday and I felt bad about yesterday so wanted to do my usual routine of cycling, video and walking after. I don’t think I usually do this much on Friday because I do two videos but this week was a different story. Besides I didn’t work today or any other day since Monday.
I did get to divide the workout because after the warmup on the bicycle I went to run an errand so I got a long rest. I thought that might make me not want to finish but I knew I had to so I got right back to it when I got home and did those two videos for today.
Even after today’s long workout, I do not regret everything I ate yesterday, it was all worth it.
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.
