I never really understood the love and popularity of Yoga but since I got a set of Yoga videos for my birthday, I've been doing Yoga after work. Now I really don't know how I feel about it. On one side, I like the fact that I can still work out when I'm tired because … Continue reading Trying Yoga
Happy first official day of summer and beginning of hurricane season. I know the second one doesn't bring anyone any joy and summer is bitter sweet because it is so hot outside. Well, outside, inside, everywhere; it's even hot with air conditioning. We all knew the nice weather we had been having in Puerto Rico … Continue reading Hello summer
Today I finished reading Becoming by Michelle Obama, and I have to say it deserves all the great reviews it got. I was curious about reading it but I honestly didn't think it would be that interesting because well, I don't like politics. What's great about it is, she doesn't talk about politics, it's not … Continue reading Becoming
My birthday present, the Echo dot, finally arrived. It's late because Amazon wouldn't send it to Puerto Rico, but there are always ways around the whole not delivering to your area thing. It takes more time to have it delivered to a family member in the states and having them send it to you but … Continue reading Hello Alexa
Today I have another reason to celebrate, this time I'm celebrating because yesterday was my birthday. I always love my birthday no matter how old I am. I still feel like a child when it's my birthday; this year I had to act like an adult because I was at work but my boss and … Continue reading Happy Birthday to me!
First of all, Happy Mother's Day to all mothers. We couldn't be alive without you, like, literally. Thank you for everything else you do, after we get to this crazy world. From changing our disgusting diapers to teaching us how to walk, then drive and sorry for wrecking the car (we all did at one … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day
I didn't think about it, but writing this brings a lot of old feelings back. I can't help but look back at the last seven years of my life, at least what I can remember of them and the worst moments come to mind. From that very first memory that always makes me sad and … Continue reading Seven years later…
Last night I listened to a podcast on BUCKIT, by Phil Keoghan (he's the host on the Amazing Race), where he spoke with former NFL player Chris Borland, which was surprisingly very interesting. I say surprisingly because I didn't know who Chris Borland was before just now, he's a retired football player, and I don't … Continue reading NFL Linebacker talks about his life changing decision
After a pretty good long weekend, I was able to wake up half an hour earlier this morning and workout again before going to work. I surprised myself by not only waking up, but actually doing more than my previous 15 minutes, which was also my goal for today. This morning I worked out for … Continue reading That short morning workout
I was trying to do some cleaning today in my room, trying to get rid of some of the junk I didn't throw away when we moved, when I found something that immediately caught my attention. I was fascinated when I found some of the essays and stories I wrote in college . I thought … Continue reading “My first memory”
Last night I decided to do something I have been thinking about for a long time but I just couldn't get myself to do: wake up earlier to work out. I didn't think I would wake up, I have set the same goal before and haven't heard the alarm, but I miraculously did it today! … Continue reading Good morning!
I can finally say it, I am four years seizure free! Thanks mostly to my wonderful neurologist for finding the right medication, keeping me on it, Sonexus Health Pharmacy for helping me get the medicine, and everyone around me for making sure I have my medicine. It's just incredible, literally, I can't believe I've made … Continue reading Four Years Seizure Free!
I love using Uber, it's the easiest way to get to and back from work and the great majority of times they are very pleasant rides with very nice people. Most Uber drivers are nice and start a conversation, which makes the ride a lot better and less awkward. But from time to time there's … Continue reading That one weird Uber ride
I read an article today that inspired me and I want to follow the write's example. maybe my take on his message may seem a little bit angrier but maybe I was sort of venting while I wrote this: As my emotions have gotten more stable during these seven years after my brain injury there … Continue reading You write your own story
