Let the Countdown Begin

My absolute favorite holiday is just around the corner. No it is NOT Christmas bah fucking humbug and no it isn’t Kwanza.

For some a birthday is just another day. It isn’t anything to necessarily get excited about because most people party poopers equate getting older with the many accomplishments and/or events that did not occur by a certain age. While I understand the rationale behind this train of thought, I have to say I don’t see the fucking point in thinking that way. I don’t know about you guys but I don’t like being miserable on a regular basis. Forget the fact that I have been for quite a while but that’s for another post! Yes it does upset me a little to not be in a place where I can just be comfortable and not worry about anything but at the same time, I figure God doesn’t give me anything I cannot bear. And considering my life could be much worse or even non-existent. I am so thankful and grateful for being able to live another minute, day, week, month and year of my life. Yes I will be treinta y cinco años this year but I don’t look or feel the age I am. Thanks Mama for the youthful genes! I have family and friends who love and care for me no matter who, what or where I am in life. Thank you GOD I am healthy, fahn and alive.

Thanks for reading…

Nerdtastic, Write?

I am an aspiring writer trying to find my place in the world. Writing makes me happy, save lives much like coffee, and keeps me grounded. To honestly know me is to understand my way of thinking, my quirky, sarcastic side comments, and left uppercut verbal jabs and side-eye death stares. I’m simplistic but can often be very complex in nature. I love life to the absolute fullest, but I am human; therefore, I have more than my fair share of ups and downs. I am a giant kid, so being goofy comes naturally to me. I secretly strive to be the next Ernest Hemingway, J.K. Rowling, Zora Neale Hurston, or Shonda Rhimes. I openly and stupidly wear every bit of my heart on my sleeve and refuse to apologize for or minimize my true, unedited feelings.
