Since I started my new job, tutoring, I have left writing my book aside. I did not do that consciously, I just noticed on my visit to the psychiatrist this week. I sent what I had done since I got another idea about how to write it but, I haven't done much with it and … Continue reading Can’t keep getting distracted
On December 2, 2016 I wrote about not having a job this Christmas in a post called Christmas without a job. I tried all year to not end the year without a job, but I'm sad to say I had no luck. What's even sadder is that this year I never had a job, unlike … Continue reading Come on Unstoppable María!
Today I decided to make rice and beans again, this time with the ingredients I forgot last time to add flavor; I added cubitos and sazón. These two gave it that extra little bit of flavor it needed and it tasted just like it did when I used to make it five years ago. This … Continue reading Rice and Beans: Take 2
I'm almost done with my first project, which has taken como close to 24 hours, of course not all on one day. In this first project I have learned how to make my own map on Google Maps, how to use Streetview and how to watermark photos. This is a lot of work, but I'm … Continue reading Almost done
Today let's talk about two people; Susie and Carlos, my manager and my motivator. These two have been in my life for about 16 years, since they have been friends with my mom. Susie and Carlos have become part of our family, joining my family during holidays and birthdays, and we are always there for each … Continue reading Susie and Carlos
I have been kind off covering this story on a few of my previews posts, and today it got more interesting, but I won't stop until they vote. Right now democrat representatives are staging a sit-in, refusing to leave the house of representatives until they have reached a vote on gun control. These are news … Continue reading #NoBillNoBreak
I have to keep going on about this because this is just a logical thing, don't put guns in the hands of citizens, even if they're law abiding citizens, or appear to be. You don't know whose hands the gun is going to end up, or where the bullet will end up. Republicans say carrying … Continue reading Say no to guns
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!
In a few hours I will have to start telling people I'm a year older, I already got the dreaded question; how old? Come on!!! Really? I said it, but it just sounds weird saying it. I do feel great because I already went out to celebrate with my favorite food. but tomorrow when I wake … Continue reading Talk about it
Well I'm glad we are allowed, because at least one person in the world should think I'm strong, and I think I am. I know people have seen everything I have done in the past few years, I'm still working on it, I'm not done. I think I'm masterpiece, but I don't know if they … Continue reading Masterpiece and work in progress
These past few weeks I have been taking some tests to check how much I have improved through the year. I have taken these set of tests twice already since the accident, and I haven't really felt very good about my improvement this year. I felt like I wasn't doing well when it came to … Continue reading Remember, please
Today, we begin March, or Brain Injury Awareness Month. Because of this, I would like to dedicate all, or most of my blog posts to sharing information about TBI or other brain injuries. A brain injury is not something that just happened to me, this is something that we all should be aware of. There … Continue reading National Brain Injury Awareness Month
Is Strength Training or Cardio Better for Fat Loss? This was interesting. I thought we could get those muscles from just doing cardio, and strength training was so we could lift stuff. Strength training always seemed like it was for people who wanted to be Superman, people who wanted to have big muscles. I was … Continue reading Strength? Cardio?
Neurologists want the public to take epilepsy more seriously If this doesn't scare me into paying more attention when I take my medicines, I don't know what will. I have only switched the morning dose with the nightly dose twice, and only missed one dose in over three years, but I still have to be … Continue reading We have to take epilepsy seriously
Ten months ago I decided I wanted people to read what I was writing, so I started a blog. I thought I would only write a few times a month, and just so people close to me could read it, I didn't think anyone else would be interested. But people were interested, so I kept … Continue reading Good bye 2015
