Hi There!

If you are new here welcome. I've been blogging online since MySpace, but I officially started this site in 2010.

I am brutally honest here. I share the good and the bad. I write in English, Spanish, Spanglish, and Portuguese.

My Twitter account will be changing to 95% wedding related content, so I'm moving all my opinions and observations here. There are so many things happening in the world right now, I can no longer balance my wedding tweets and my personal tweets anymore.

I'm going to write about the problems with the police dealing with black and brown people. I'm going to also be more vocal about climate change and issues with water conservation.

I will always be myself. Sometimes I get really enojada and go off. This is my corner of the Internet and I get to decide what stays and what goes. I do like respectful debating, but if I decide you are un bendejo, adiós. Forever.

I am happy to share my world with you. I believe in the power of social media. I believe in humanity. Mucho gusto.

Bienvenido (welcome),
Monica


What a Week!

Bad News:

Flumist made me really sick.

I got bitten on the foot by a brown recluse spider on Wednesday. I didn't go to the hospital, using alternative medicine home care. We'll see what happens. The intense pain made my coughing slow down.

World events are so disturbing I can't even focus on wedding things.

I bought my father an amazing sweater for his birthday. I am broke so I had to order and send it to him a bit early to take advantage of the great deal. I have not heard one word from him about the gift. Nothing. I know it was delivered early on the 22nd. He is obsessed with the mail so I know he has seen it. So tired of being disrespected.

Good News:

BlackBerry is back in the game. Though in my eyes it has never left. I would like to introduce the Porsche Design P'9983 smartphone which launched in Dubai last week. Beautiful.



Ahh,
Monica

Flumist Vaccine

I received the Flumist vaccine last week. Now I have the flu. I've always gotten the shot every year, but this year my insurance company pushed for the nasal vaccine.

The shot gives me really bad muscle pain and bruising so I thought the nasal version would spare me the pain. I would give anything to go back in time and have the shot instead of the nasal.

I feel like crap. Fever, chills, runny nose, awful sore throat, and coughing. Think long and hard before you go the nasal flu vaccine route.

Surrounded by tissues,
Monica

Nothing Left

I give up. I have no more fight in me right now.

Many people have so much and are so ungrateful. I read an article about how many designer purses North West (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's daughter) has and she can't even walk yet. I understand that the Kardashians have millions and it's their money, but thousands of dollars of purses for an infant seems wasteful.

I just want to feel better. I want to work again. I've had a job since I was 14 years old...

This is a crazy and unstable world. Stay safe, trust few, and always watch your back.

Take care,
Monica

My birthday is tomorrow. My wish is for world peace, personal safety, less stress, no pain, and a vintage sapphire ring.

Besos,
Monica
