be(r)nice.

voy a cambiar vidas.

i write a lot. i have this little notebook that i carry with me everywhere.

porque este mundo es increíble.

i love tumblrs. because people these days are so quick to judge and if you happen upon this site, you get a whole different perspective of someone you thought you knew.

because sometimes we don't speak aloud all we want to say. and written words preserve the moment's intensity.

when i write, i think i look for/ hope someone will disagree with me. because they care enough to engage and sometimes i don't want to believe what i have come to conclude.

i'm self absorbed, passionate, vocal though sometimes internally, stubborn, will argue with you if you don't agree with what i think, interested in multiculturalism race relations psychology cross cultural, still figuring it out

I spent today in my own Multisensorial Stimulation workshop again. Only this time I had Manuel with me.

My workplace is really a whole other world. And one that’s hard to explain to someone who hasn’t been there for a while.

I had my own workshop today of multisensorial estimulation, where the goal is to help them relax. It’s usually for the more affected people who can’t participate in other workshops. Instead of seeing this as overwhelming like I kind of did when I ran it myself Monday, this…

My pictures online are mostly of my travels but these are the moments that I love the most. Building connections with these people, enjoying each other’s company, smiling, laughing.

The other day I got to feed Castellano. Despite his appearance, his brain is not affected at all. We talk with him looking up and down for “yes” and “no.” In his eyes and smile he communicates so much. :)

I showed Raf this movie today :) She wanted to watch a movie and loves Phil Collins so I found a Spanish version online. It made me so happy when I heard her laughing.

I also sat with Pac for a bit while he practiced syllables on youtube videos. When he was young, schools did not know how to deal with people with disabilities so he never learned to read or write. When we got to pronouncing…

Life is passing so quickly for me right now. I’m trying to catch up with myself but it doesn’t look like I’ll have to do that until Monday when I get back from Morocco. I need to find a way to slow down, maybe find time to wander off myself in Morocco and spend time with myself and my notebook. Nur invited me to her house today to swim. There were moments when I self-conscious again about my…
