Ok so it's been days since I've found an internet connection. I'm sitting on the roof of my grandparents' house and I think I finally got it, probably because it's 7 am and there don't seem to be a lot of people blocking the signal. We've been staying with my grandparents because being stuck in … Continue reading I have have data, finally!
Puerto Rico saw the biggest and strongest hurricane in decades. I haven't been able to write or update the blog for days because we don't have electricity in my house but my brother and I just walked to el Telégrafo building (telegraph) where we heard there was wi-fi. Among a herd of people, all connected … Continue reading Puerto Rico after Hurricane María
Everyone on Puerto Rico is working hard to prepare for María and so are we. Everything is ready to go to my brother's house. Just like I did for Irma, I will be Tweeting in real time for as long as I have wi-fi. Stay tuned to @unstoppablemar1 to see how we're dealing with this … Continue reading Hurricane 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. Because of María's intensity and traveling direction, through Puerto Rico, the government … Continue reading Stop that María
This morning I had an appointment with my neurologist to discuss those episodes I have had and the result of the EEG.

I got home today after spending a few hours getting lunch and trying to charge my phone thinking my apartment would still be the sauna it was this morning, maybe even more hot. I came in, congratulated my dogs for not braking or destroying ANYTHING and went on to put my purse in my room. … Continue reading Power’s back!
Well, after the hurricane we got the power back for 24 hours from Saturday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. When I learned we had power I started doing laundry, turned on every fan in my house, watched Tv, and slept with the air conditioner on. Twenty four hours later I saw the fan in my room … Continue reading When there’s no power, have a taco picnic
This week, during her brief visit to Puerto Rico, our friend Irma didn't cause nearly as much damage as we all expected, as I mentioned in my previous post. The main problem that most of us felt was the loss of power in houses and businesses. This wasn't the case for everyone but more than … Continue reading The things we take for granted
Yesterday, my parents, my dogs and I left our apartment seeking safety during hurricane Irma in my grandparents' house. Their house is almost like a bunker, we knew we would be safe there and didn't want anyone to be alone during such a strong hurricane; we were preparing for the worst. By the time San … Continue reading After Irma
Thank you everyone who is keeping me, my family and all of us affected by the hurricane. I will be tweeting throughout the hurricane, you can follow me @unstoppablemar1. ❤️😘
