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
Since yesterday, every time I try to make a phone call or I receive a call, I can't hear anything. I don't hear the phone ringing as I call and I can't hear the person when they answer or when I answer, even though I see on the screen that the other person had answered … Continue reading I almost drowned my phone
When I was younger, like high school or maybe even younger, I had a huge collection of Archie comics. Every time I found a new issue I had to have it and read it from front to back, sometimes reading them again when I couldn't find a new one. I remember I had a box … Continue reading Riverdale
I was woken up at 5:57 this morning, not 6:00, 5:57. It was painful enough for me knowing I would have to wake up at six, but being woken up those three seconds earlier made me feel like they had woken me up at midnight. I couldn't find the strength to have breakfast or do … Continue reading Today’s project

This is my second draft; the first one got lost because I wasn't online when I wrote it. I thought that even if I wasn't using Wifi it would save if I hit the save option but I guess the app can't hear me without Wifi, so here I go again. It's day 2 of … Continue reading #apagon2016 Day 2
At the end of August my Fitbit Charge began to break, I had only had it for about seven months and the wrist band started peeling out, then the button on the right and the piece that held it fell out too. I hadn't done anything except wear it everyday. I didn't know if I … Continue reading My new Fitbit is here!
This morning I read on Twitter some news about a tropical storm headed for Puerto Rico, which was scary; but looking on the bright side, it's not a hurricane. It's still scary, we don't know what's gonna happen tomorrow, I don't know if I'm going to have to go to work, my parents don't know … Continue reading The storm is coming
I am now enjoying spending some time with my three youngest cousins. I had missed them and missed watching them grow up to be teenagers, but I have to say I'm very glad they have not turned into annoying teenagers. I did kind of return to my younger self fighting over the floating devices at … Continue reading Good times with the cousins
Today we tried to see Captain America: Civil War for the second time, but tonight we got in to see the movie. I found this movie, as well as the other Marvel movies I have seen, very entertaining. I don't know that much of the superheroes' history, as my brother does, but I can still … Continue reading Superheroes get hurt, just like you and me

There aren't enough jobs, people are leaving the island, we have a $70 million debt, and we don't know how to get up again after this fall. There is no simple way to fix this mess and if we don't do anything it … Continue reading Crisis in paradise
President Obama has a new plan that I think should have been passed a long time ago I have heard about this before but it didn't sound like a real thing, and now it does. This law would mean that "anyone with a severe disability is eligible to have the government discharge their federal student … Continue reading Loan forgiveness for permanently disabled people

Epilepsy shouldn't keep us from living … Continue reading Guess who else had epilepsy
As promised last month, here is my poster for 11 months seizure free. As I say every month, I can't believe I've made it this long seizure free. Reaching a year will make me feel more accomplished than anything else I've done this past year. Just 1 more month!!!!!
