OCTOBER IS SPINA BIFIDA AWARENESS MONTH.
I sincerely apologize for not being able to post early today, but to be honest, there are no regrets on my part. Today, I spent the day at Valencia, studying while Mom worked. I felt surprisingly energized, but, by the end of the day, I knew I needed a nice break from the textbook grind! Fortunately, my friend Antonio called, and we went out for gelato and coffee. A much needed-break with an awesome friend.
From here on out, I propose to do everything in my power so as not to neglect my social life. I realize it is a very healthy and rejuvenating experience to sit with a friend and chat about everything, and about nothing. Reflecting on my evening, I can’t imagine anything better that I could have done with my time. After returning home, I watched part of CNN’s “Latino in America,” series, which I plan to tune into as often as possible. Even as a Latina with spina bifida and hydrocephalus, I feel very blessed to have the educational and social opportunities I have been offered.
