An old-school survey to let you know what I’m all about
- Single, Married, shacking up
My friends say I have a “pho-husband”– basically I’ve been shacking up with my soulmate for more than 3 years
A dedicated Tia (aunt) and mentor
I’m a rescuer not a buyer– first off! Currently I only have my 18 year old tortoise by my side
But I have rescued water turtles– when they got too big I donated them to rescue a center
Then there was my special baby. My adopted pit bull that passed at the old doggy age of 16.
- Gay, Straight, other
Pretty straight but you never know what the future will hold
- Language (s)
English, Spanish & Spanglish
Catholic by tradition but a spiritualist by practice
- A crew, VIP, just me & my bestie
When I was really little it was always just me & my bestie. When I was in my 20s-30s it was all about my crew. Now… I have an awesome mini group that I call my VIPs. My ride or die people!
- Tattoos, piercings and dye jobs
In my years I’ve had a: nose ring and an eyebrow ring (ears too duh). I have also had black, blue and purple hair. Tattoos– I love them and soon I will have more.
I spent over 12 years fighting for injustice (or trying) through the public sector (government & nonprofits). My uniform was suits and a bun. All I wanted was to help those who needed it– the invisible people who needed to be seen. The further I got up the ladder the further away I got from the community itself. So, I recently stepped away from the suit world to try to help communities through education and information. This transition is a blog in itself!
- Youngest, oldest, solo kid
Always the baby
My everything! My siblings are my limbs. My parents were made up of more than just my mom and dad but of Abuelas and Tias and Tios! Up until very recently we all lived very close by, but as we are forced to grow up life takes on different journeys. So now my family is up and down the east coast and PR.
- Born & raised
In life and in the university
What matters to me
- Causes near my heart
All injustice. Injustice to man, woman, animal, nature,religion, country!
- Biggest pet peeve
Hatred. I can handle open minded ignorance (not knowing any better but willing to learn) but blind ignorance— it’s what makes me want to fight!
- Politically speaking
A strong liberal! I pick democrat for primary voting reasons— but I don’t belong in a box unless that box is liberal!
