Black out, again

Today is day two of being without bower in my house, again. This happened after a power transformer exploded yesterday morning. Some floors have power but others, like mine, don't. I hope tomorrow they are able to fix this because I have some exiting news to share, trying to write it from my phone wasn't … Continue reading Black out, again

Why would anyone want to hack me?

Today I got an email from Amazon saying something about the prize of my Amazon prime subscription. "Oh cool, Amazon Prime... when did I get Amazon prime"?

Stop that María 

Here we go again, another hurricane, this one goes by the beautiful name of María, pretty name, I know. This storm, however, doesn't look like it will be pretty; it's already a category 5 hurricane and it will go over the entire island.

Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma is coming for Puerto Rico with full force and I'm terrified, we all are, but most of alll we have to stay calm and be prepared.

I watched my puppy run at the speed of light

My life with my dogs has not been easy, dogs are a lot of work, but despite all the work I have loved every second of life with them, except 5 minutes that felt like hours on Wednesday night. We were just leaving our building to take the dogs for a walk, when I heard … Continue reading I watched my puppy run at the speed of light

I’m never letting go again

Today, we took our dogs for their daily walk, but we took a different route. Instead of starting next to the avenue, like we usually do,  we decided to walk next to the highway which is one street down from the avenue. As we were walking we realized that the sidewalk down there is not … Continue reading I’m never letting go again

Don’t worry, be happy

I can't ignore what is happening right now. Everywhere I look, there he is, there are his words, there is the world terrified, just like I am.

For the first time in my life I have been paying attention to the elections. I'm paying attention to the governor candidates in Puerto Rico and I can't help but pay attention to the presidential candidates in the states; and I'm sick of it.  I just want this to be over. I want it to … Continue reading Is it over?

Clowns are not funny

So now there's these people dressing up as clowns, as in clowns weren't scary and creepy enough already. They should stay where they belong, the circus, that way if you don't like them or have a life long fear of the scary man with a white face giving children balloons, you don't have to see … Continue reading Clowns are not funny

Gun control, now!

Today, too many people continue to defend the indefensible. There are a series of issues in play here, but the United States of America has an undeniable problem with gun violence. How many more lives need to be lost before we do something about lax gun laws? How can a person previously tied to terrorism … Continue reading Gun control, now!

Seizure app is stalking me

No, really, I know I sounds ridiculous or paranoid, but it's true. This app is supposed to be helping me, but it's taking it to a very … Continue reading Seizure app is stalking me

Lesson learned: don’t leave home without checking you have your medicine 

Tonight I had quite a scare. I was at a school activity with my parents and suddenly I felt dizzy, like something wasn't right. I looked inside my purse for my anti-seizure medicine, the same medicine we had been fighting with the health insurance to let me have. I looked, my mother looked, it wasn't … Continue reading Lesson learned: don’t leave home without checking you have your medicine
