Life is slowly going back to normal after the holidays, which means taking down Christmas decorations and going back to work. I haven’t started putting away decorations, even though I planned on starting today. I’m not ready to got back to normal just yet, especially since going back to normal will probably mean not having that much time to exercise.
I don’t want this to happen so to force myself to keep moving I signed up for a virtual challenge to complete 30 miles in January. I know that seems like a lot but you don’t have to complete all at once. This challenge can be done anywhere and whenever all though the month of January.
Even if I don’t do anything on weekends I think will be able to finish because I usually walk/run for two or three miles. Today is only the 7th and I have already completed 6.77 miles this month.
I’m really looking forward to seeing how long it will take me or how fast I can complete this challenge. I will also keep doing everything else I’ve been doing for the last few months.
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.
