Is not a drinking problem! or maybe it is?


Before I moved to USA I was a drinker. Don't get me wrong, I didn't have a drinking problem but I enjoyed to drink during the weekends with my friends a little more the one beer per night, in fact lots of times the drinking was over have of bottle of Aguartiente ( popular anis drink in Colombia) per person, so yes I really used to enjoy drinking.

Now what brings me to this post, is my believe of actually being drinking more or maybe often now. I was used to a different amount, one or two beers in the middle of the week, and tons of Aguardiente during the weekend, but now I find myself on a Tusday night in front of the computer with a glass of wine in my hands and almost feeling like a desperate house wife.

A glass of wine, a beer or a bottle of aguardiente, there is any difference? well of course there is one, now I don't wake up with a hangover Sundays mornings, or even Wednesdays. If my mom read this she will think that her daughter may have a drinking problem....well I don't think so! and anyway what is bad about alcohol is when you don't know how to drink it or drink and drive, well there is more, but don't need to talk about it....for now cheers!

What we started a drunken night out

I met Justin in Medellin in May 2007, while he was traveling around Colombia before moving to D.C to attend school. He visited Bogotá and the coffee country before arriving in Medellin, where he stayed at a hostel where one of my best friends, and occasional I, used to work. While I waited for my friend to finish her shift before going out, I saw him first and everything about him grabbed my attention. I remember asking my friend who he was but she was in a bad mood and wanted only to go out and dance the day off. I was glad when I saw him again at the bar I was dancing with friends. Yes, he was good looking and a good dancer but there was something else that made my eyes glued onto him. It was kind of embarrassing— it’s not the Latina seductive style to stare— but I couldn’t stop. Anyway, I’m not really a shy person so, in the end, it didn’t matter that much. Eventually, we found ourselves dancing with each other, pretended to talk and kissed.

In the Land of Freedom

Since the arrival of the first European immigrants to North American the country known today as: The United States of America started to be built on immigrant blood.From mass immigration though Ellis Island, New York, in the early 1900’s to crossing the border walking the deserts of Texas or Arizona today, the idea of America as the land of freedom, where the sky is the limit, has attracted and continues attracting immigrants around the globe. For many years, in order to control the unstoppable immigration; which has apparently transformed into a problem, thought the years different immigration polices and strategies has been used being Secure Communities being one of the most recent.Although Secure Communities has effectively deported dangerous criminals, the program should not be enforced nationwide as a federal law because it breaks apart American families while reducing the cooperation between illegal immigrant communities and local police.After the attacks on September 11th the D…

The first of many

When I was 14 years old I was ready to start to work. According to the Colombian law I was not allow to work with out my parents permission. My dad was against that idea, so I have to wait while felling jealous of my brother Agustin, whom just 2 years older than me, was working at my dad's uncle electric store during the holidays, making money.
As soon I turned 18 I stared the job search. After sending a couple of resumes with the blank spaces where my experience should go, I got finally hired at a restaurant. I was thrill, the time of make my own money and grow independent have finally come!. The restaurant, "La Parrilla de Martin", was an Argentinean style stake house just a couple of blocks away from my house and in the same bus route from my college. I set out my schedule: I will work 3 lunches and 2 nights, for a total of 5 shifts a week. 5 shifts a week and full time school didn't sounded that hard for the 18 year old me, but in reality it was impossible.
