Well, I’ve left the great state of NY to go back to Puerto Rico. It feels like a step back for me, but really I’ve done it as en effort to reestablish what I want in this life. As much as this is home, I so wanted to claim my own livelihood elsewhere and were better than the Big Apple?
While I am here I hope to do something with my family farm (free range chicken eggs maybe) and finally start establishing myself as a freelancer. After the great lay off of 2011, I was dead set and determined to find something in my field before I sub came to a join in another. After trying in NY I finally decided that the only way to do that would be in PR and thus I am sitting at a Starbucks in San Juan, writing this blog.
As much as I love this island’s spirit and the food that fills its belly, sometimes I feel like it’s stuck and needs help pushing forward. Could I be a person to help do this, who knows? All I know is that I am dead set and determined to get my life back in order ASAP whether here or anywhere. I will always love NY and I will miss it more than I could ever begin to express. But for now, I am here and I will forever hanker for more, strive for more and never settle for less. I hope that you will continue with me through this journey as I continue to find my place.
Here’s to the future!
