Come on Unstoppable María!

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!

Last minute interview 

So today I had the guts to ask if they got my application for a job at the gym. They had and the woman I asked actually had it in her hands among other applications.

One step at a time 

After over a month the boxes my aunts sent my parents to help life after Hurricane Maria finally arrived. My mom was so happy with all the food, batteries, flashlights and solar chargers for cellphones and computers.  Mail was already being delivered but when they still hadn’t received any packages I thought they had been … Continue reading One step at a time

Then and now

Are you kidding me?

After I proved to myself I could work out with a lot of people around me, I went to the gym at probably it's busiest time of the day, 7 p.m. Not only was it busy, but it closed in 2 hours, at 9, so I rushed through the routine, one exercise after the other … Continue reading Are you kidding me?
