What I’m doing with my life
I am a Bi-lingual social worker. Most of my work is influenced by
cartels, gangs, drugs, and immigration issues. I work with teenage
boys with high therapeutic needs. When they aren't being super
intense and difficult, they are crazy funny and creative and they
give me a run for my money (I think that is how one would use that
saying). Basically my job is my life right now. It takes up pretty
much all of my time, but it's given me some crazy stories and a
I’m really good at
I am really good at acting ridiculous, saying words that mean
nothing, getting super hyper and silly. Not depending on what's
around me to make things exciting and fun! I am good at enjoying
the simple moments without needing a lot of extra
Mostly what I am really good at, is going into the real world, and
assigning the people from "Guess Who" board game to the random
strangers I see on the street. Have you ever noticed that a
surprising amount of people look like Guess Who characters?!
I am really good at reading, though not spelling confusingly
lot of people can read, but are not good at it because they don't
enjoy it or have any sort of retention or can't analyze what they
read. I love all the facets of literature and poetry, and anything
else I can put my hands on and turn a page.
I play the piano...my parents were super intense about it, and I
hated waking up at 5 am to play for like 12 years straight, but it
benefited me in the end.
There are a lot of things I am not good at though too. I am really
analytical about people and situations, and sometimes that makes me
dwell on stuff, when i should just say "shit happens". I am not
good at making lots of new friends, thus I am on this site. I am
trying to be a better version of myself each day.
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I am a bundle of contradictions. Visually I look kind of
like a girly Irish lass, yet have the spirit of a frida kahlo
glamazon woman on a mission. I am pretty self-directed and have
gumption. I assume that people are generally superficial before
they get to know someone, however, I find that most often new
acquaintances notice my sarcasm and intensity almost immediately.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
GO DYNAMO. WORLD CUP! EURO CUP! Spain won again :/
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can make my food spicier. How I can make my life easier. How
I can be a better person. How I can find the time to read more
books. How I will be able to work my job and study at the same time
to go back to grad school. I fantasize a lot about leaving the US
for South America randomly and couch surfing, and then I realize
that sounds kind of rape-tastic.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have some fake teeth. So when I get called superficial, or people
comment on my smile or say I have too many pics, I say why thanks,
when you can survive falling down a cliff and breaking your jaw in
3 spaces, then you are allowed to be superficial. I busted my ass
to not have a hill billy smile.
