Never realized

I had you in front of me for so long, and never did I think anything of it, after six years we meet again; we meet in the moment where I needed you the most. You made me laugh and enjoy life again, with your smile and nice comments you began to be part of my life, slowly you got into my mind and heart. I had you, you were all mines and enjoy you for almost three months and when we were finally ready to tell the world that we were together it all came falling down. I didn’t know that he didn’t have an immigration status and on Thursday April 23 I found out the hardest way, he was on his way to work, minding his own business and the guy that was taking him to work got pull over for speeding and police ICE was called. Which is the immigration police and that was the end of our love story. Even though I can go see him in Colombia it won’t ever be the same. Now I realized that I had begun to fall in love again and it’s over once more. I never realized how much I would miss him until now that I lost him.

Long way home

Alligator alley continues closed and now we are farther from where we were before. From Clearwater to home was about four and a half hours long and on state road 27 it was longer, where there are traffic lights and a lower speed limit. Every one else were asleep and I had to driving all the way home, boy was I tried. Everyone had been drinking so there was no way I was going to let someone else drive. It was a really long but fun weekend.

Luck ran out

So now we're at the beach and just hanging out and have fun. It was really hot that day and we wanted to do something fun for one of our friends because was her birthday. We rented the banana boat which is these big yellow tube looking like thing that gets dragged by another boat. So we get on it was fun until a friend of mine thought that it would be funny to push each other off, after she fell twice i guess she was more mad at the fact that she fell and we wouldn't. We were all okay with that but what wasn’t cool was that she didn’t tell me and I had really expensive glasses on. When I get pushed off the ocean shallows them up and that is where my bad luck started up again.

Luck ran out

We start get ready to go to the beach, but here we are in Tampa and have no idea where the beach is or did I know that we were planning on going to the beach so of course I didn't take a bathing suit and I end up having to go to target to get one and get towels too. We were so unprepared, then we try to find the beach and driving for over an hour until we reached Clearwater. On the way there of course, with all the luck that i 've been having I get pull over. At that point I thought maybe luck would change and it did the police officer was nice enough to not give me a ticket, and to let me go. So of course I toke advantage and asked how to get to the beach.

A better day

We get up and start getting ready to go to Busch Gardens. We get there around 11 am and the fun finally started. We went on every ride there. I think its crazy the way those things work they’re so big and powerful. I’m sure many have been there but sheikra is one of the best ones. Has a 200ft drop at 90* angle oh yeah!!!! The best part is that before the drop they stop you right before the fall. It goes about 70 mph which to me seems a lot for a roller coaster.

Another long day...

I wake up at 5:45 in the morning to go to work because I have to be there at 6:30. So I go to work and there is an accident on 441 and sharidan street so now I’m running late. I finally get there and I’m support to clock in before 6:45 and when I ran to the clock I watched it turn to 6:46 and now I’m late. After 12 ½ hours in the hospital, I went home to pack my stuff because I was going to get on the road to go to Tampa with my cousin and two other friends. And on top of it all I end up having to drive because I pick the short stick. Oh yeah and on top of it all, state road 75 was closed at alligator alley so what did I have to do, take the turnpike which is so much longer to get there. But to make a long story short we get there around 1 am and I just pasted out because I was extremely tried.

West Palm Beach

So my mom has a condo in West Palm Beach and it’s rented. But that suck for me because the tents that are there haven’t answered the phone or any of messages that I have left them. So what dose that means that I end up having to drive up there. To find out if they are still living there or maybe they left or are trying to live for free. All I can say about owning property is that “it’s a pain” especially if it’s so far from where you live. So I had to drive more than 45 minute to find out that they were still living there and that had a family problem and were not able to send the check on time but they had put it in the mail.

My new and little home…..

I used to be married….now I’m happy…lol…and single, that’s the reason that I decided to rent a little house near the beach, is so beautiful and homely, the neighborhood is quiet and nice. When I saw the place I though it would be a good place to start over but I don’t like to be alone, for me the loneliness isn’t a good company. Then I remembered that my friend Angie used to have a boyfriend….now she is very happy and she is living alone. I’m going to start a new life and she also wants to start over, in our new home. She is a little crazy and very funny; she’s from Colombia like me. We have a lot of things to do, you know moving in a new home is not easy. When the house is ready we want to get a pet, we want to adopt a chocolate Labrador for two reasons the first one is because I can’t take my dogs from my parent’s house (Luna and Mateo) there are inseparable, and a company for them. And the second one is because Angie had a pet in Colombia a golden Labrador and she miss him a lot . The name of our chocolate Labrador is going to be Hershey. Well the next week we are going to start the moving….. yaaaa!!!

back at the parents house

I think that being able to move out of your parents house is one of the best thing that could happened and I did it when I was nineteen. But like everything it didn’t always go as planned. I got married at a very young age and left my parents house and at the time I thought it was the best thing I was doing, but now I look back and kind of wish I wouldn’t have done that. Things between my husband and I started to go wrong precisely because we were very young and immature, and one day I decided to leave to prove lots of thing to him and to myself. I had to move back in with my parents and I think that was the hardest thing I had to do, leave my house where everything was mine. I had to figure out how I was going to fit everything I had into my old bedroom but anyway I did. But here is the hardest part of everything was having to live under their rules and do what they thought was the right thing to do. Which I know that they are my parents and they only want the beat for me but I didn’t think I was going to last and that was exactly what happened. I guess that my mom and I are so much alike that we just couldn’t understand each other. So now I am looking to move again. I can’t say that I don’t appreciate everything that they have done for me but I guess after you have lived alone it is not easily having to live with your parents again and feeling like you failed. For a short period of time while you get back on your feet I think is okay and that is what happened to me after six month of my separation I am able to say I can live by myself.


One of the best trips that I’ve been on was when I went to Las Vegas when I got married that was my honey mood. I had so much fun from the moment that we got on the plane the vacation started. We spent five days there, which were spilt between Las Vegas and the Gran Canyon. It was two different extremes but it was awesome. The Gran Canyon was so quite and peaceful and Las Vegas was the total opposites with loud music and shows in every hotel you walk into. The almost of money that we spend was all worth it, I have never really traveled much but going to Las Vegas was one of the best trip I have taken and I would repeat. When I saw the Gran Canyon it looked like there was a wall paper in the background. We were lucky enough to be able to spend two days in the Gran Canyon and see both sides the south rim and the north rim. We also had the chance to camp at a little town outside of the Gran Canyon which was a nice experience. The other three days we spend in Las Vegas going to different shows and just partying from one hotel to the other. Playing and gamboling even though we had no idea what we were doing but who cares because we were in Las Vegas and I am sure that everyone knows what they say what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas and that was exactly what we did.

South Florida's crime

Does the crime in south Florida affect us all?
I agree that the crime in south Florida does affect all of us. Some people may react to the crime differently. Some people want to go out and buy guns or other weapons for protection. I think that sometimes that adds to the crime, but others don’t think so. It affects how people think and feel toward others. The crime here has gotten so bad that not even that police trust anyone, and to be honest I wouldn’t either. Just look and see how many police officers have been shot and killed just in Broward and Miami-Dade. Sometimes we have to do thing to avoid getting robbed, that yes it is going out of our way but it is the best thing for us to do. For example all of expensive jewelry and important papers are all in the bank security box. Upgraded the alarm system at home and all of our cars have alarms, make sure that all the windows are closed and the front door is always locked. I never leaving anything in my car unless it’s in the trunk of my car, I also never leave my car unlocked even when I’m at the gas station. The crime in south Florida does affect all of us maybe in different ways but it does.

My window by Daniel Moriano

I went to the museum at BCC and saw a painting that was named "My Window" By Daniel Mariano. It was very relaxing, colorful and peaceful painting. I feel that if I was at this place I would feel relaxed and in a good state of mind. It would probably quite and all you would be able to hear would the wind blowing, the animals eating the green grass. Even hear the birds sing, the bees buzzing and the crickets. It looks like a place to go and just get away from the typical noise from the city the cars honking and people yelling and the smoke from the factories. The colors were amazing. It had the greenness grass, red apples on the table, a nice blue sky with clouds it looked like a picture taken on a hot summer day. I can almost smell the farm scent in the morning. The red apples look so tempting, I felt like grabbing one and eat it. Moriano made me feel like I was back at home on my family’s farm where I use to spend lots of summer breaks, a very nice memory.

I went to a sports bar with my friends from work, the bar is near the hospital I work for and lots of people that I work with go there to hang out after work. So we get there and on the other side of the bar is a guy that I have seen before but could not remember form where. I started to think and wonder where I have I seen him before and what dose he do for a living. He was wearing scrubs so he may work at the hospital or at the vet clinic that is near there. He had a wedding ring on so I guess he is married but he was also with a female that could be his wife or a friend. He looked like he was in his late 20 early 30. Clean cut and shaved so well kept maybe not a big drinker because he only had two bud lights. So I was interested in knowing where did I know him from so, my friend and went and sat next to them and this was my chance to ask him all I needed to know. His name is Eric and works at the hospital but he works for the other Intensive care unit, he is married but his wife was out of town so that was the reason why he was there because other wise she would not of let them be there. He is 29 and is a nurse and I was right he is a light drinker but the reason for that is he has a wired condition that is common among Asians that they get red and really hot when they drink so he try’s not to drink too much. It was fun and interesting to actually get the chance to talk to him and to get to know him and it’s also funny how we always assume so many things the girl that was there was his sister.

about me

I really don't know what to write about so I am just going to write a little about myself. I am 23 year old and I am Colombian. I was born and raised here but I will always consider myself 100%Colombian. I have been to Colombia and I love it, even though I would not move there it still is a beautiful country.I am currently in school for nursing and work as a nursing assistant at memorial regional hospital in the intensive care unit. I have been at this hospital for about 4 years now and I love what I do. I really can't wait until I finish school so I can work in what I like and make the money. I think I always knew that is what I wanted to do. I like that fact that I can help people when they can't do it for themselves. I know that my job can be a little bit depressing but it feels so good to see someone that is almost dieing get better and go home to their family. The way the families are so grateful when I do do something to help either the patient or them. It is a hard, depressing and very gratifying job, every day is different. I want to travel a lot and learn about the different cultures around the world. For fun I like to go to the beach and hang out with my friends, I also have unique hobbies or maybe not so much unique but a bit different then most girls and that is that I love to ride my motorcycle. I really don't know too many girls that do that. I have Honda CBR 600 F4I if anyone know about bike it is a pretty big bike, I like to ride it because I can feel free and all of my worries I leave be hide. My parent don't like it too much because of the dangerous it can be and I understand them, that is why when I do go out on it I always let them know where I am at. So that is pretty much my life right now, I work at a hospital four days a week with twelve hour shifts and two days a week I go to school and that is what my life is about now.
