Aspiring best-selling author in the works! Born in Bayamonne, Puerto Rico but raised by my Colombian family (World's first Puertolombian!)Yeah... my heart's 100% Colombian and... I might just be the finest thing from that beautiful country since coke and coffee! lol! just jokin... When I was young(er), my ambition was to be one of the people who made a difference in the world. My hope still is to leave the world a little better for my having been here. I love 2 work on any form of art, be it writing, music, dance, photography, etc. It's what my heart beats 2 experience with a rhythm only a latin can carry! I love art! So I'm like a kid in a candy store at museums!!! Im probably the only person that goes to Vegas and takes the time to go to an art exhibition of her favorite photographer ever (Ansel Adams)! And, since someone else has already said it better than me (Kermit the Frog!): "I believe we form our own lives, that we create our own reality and that everything works out for the best. I know I drive some people crazy with what seems to be ridiculous optimism, but it has ALWAYS worked for me"
Besides listening to music while doing everything including showering and sleeping, especially my future hubby's music (Asher) and the Red Hot Chili Peppers' albums... Well, I guess I'm gonna sound like a loser but I absolutely love writing and reading good books that inspire me to write books that will make others feel the way I do when I take my time to read the last 5 pages of a book that is so amazing that I fear putting it down! Besides that, which takes up a good amount of my time, I also love taking good photographs and touching them up and all that jazz... I've heard I've got a knack for it! My first love (I'd say writing is a close second, however) is music!!! Give me as much as you can and you'll keep me happy for the rest of my life! Promise! I also have a slight obsession with good stand-up comedy. Sadly, I'd rather stay in on a friday night and drink with a few friends and watch stand-up on Comedy Central than go out and talk to drunks at the bar! Anyone who can be political and funny is a fuckin' genius! I swear our current comedians are the unacknowledged politicians of our day! Don't beleive me? Watch any of Chris Rock's specials!
I ADORE It's Always Sunny In Phildadelphia and National Geographic's Locked Up Abroad is amazing, too! Also, I'm totally addicted to Intervention! Like everyone and their mother, I love The Chappelle Show (come back dave! We love you!), It's Always Sunny If Philadelphia is also bomb, but right now I'm ridiculously addicted to East Bound and Down! It's the fuckin funniest show I ever seen! And I love the Colbert Report (again, funny and political, will you marry me Stephen???)
