I come from a place where two cultures interact. I speak Spanish and English and I’m currently learning Japanese. My background is culturally Mexican, but I feel like I am more American in practice. I enjoy the thrill of culture shock :p. I’ll throw myself into situations I’m afraid of to force myself to try new things. I’m learning to be more patient and forgiving. I’ve always been very impulsive and sentimental(and stubborn) but I want to improve as a person and be more balanced: the Middle Way.
I always found it difficult to open up to people, but I’m working on improving that aspect too :)
Looking to finding good friends with whom I can connect on a deeper level. We can learn something from each other, in that I believe. Everyone has something I can learn from, even if sometimes it manifests itself in strange, mysterious ways. We should be grateful to everyone, even if they hurt us, because we have learned from them. The next step is to learn to love everyone :D because we are all one, everything is god.
