Speaking of Tortoises
When people think of the reptile community, some would assume that its just a bunch of tatted dudes with lizards or snakes.
Home is Street Art
My most vulnerable state of creativity begins with a gray sketchbook, some scissors, and a fairly worn pen. This pen carries me to new horizons, and it leads me to ring out all the pent up emotions I have about feeling homesick for Chicago. Just last year, I moved from an apartment to stay with a family member in the outer suburbs. Doing so, I felt like I was lost from the usual routine I had developed and the freedom I possessed in my expression.
The "Scales Only" Birthday
When I handmade invitations for Socrates' birthday party, I definitely got some eyeballing from my mom. She didn't expect her 23 year old daughter to be planning every last detail of a tortoise's birthday party on her days off from college. With an eye of skepticism, she watched me use my tiny grade school scissors to cut out his party hats and assorted favors for the guests. Everything had to be glittery, cute, and ready to go for his treasured extravaganza! As you can already tell, I spent a lot of time in preparation for the day.
The Earth of a Pueblo
When I was little, I watched my abuela's hands move the loose soil of her garden around, making room for new life. My grandma grew flowers and herbs, leaving behind a sweet odor that drew in nature's organisms to her front porch.
A Gemini Palette

Penny for Your Thoughts?
𝕄𝕪 𝕍𝕚𝕤𝕚𝕠𝕟 Hey, that's me! The crux of my vision has been set on evaluating my mental health and healing my cultural identity by utilizing creative outlets. But where did this all begin?
The Gemini Enigma
I am a Gemini. One of the most hated signs of the zodiac. Time and time again, I have encountered multiple skeptics on my supposed trustworthiness. Apparently I am a snake, and my personality will morph itself into a demonic entity the minute I let "Gemini" slip past my tongue. My outward behavior is automatically put in a high court of the zodiac rule, and I am most likely going to be found guilty of all charges. It's pretty brutal, I'll say that!
Lavender Ice Cream
𝚆𝚑𝚊𝚝'𝚜 𝚞𝚙 𝚠𝚒𝚝𝚑 𝚟𝚎𝚐𝚊𝚗 𝚒𝚌𝚎 𝚌𝚛𝚎𝚊𝚖? Intially, I was skeptical about trying vegan ice cream because I have been consuming dairy all my life. It's so natural for me, that I didn't even think about how the Earth or my health could benefit by making some simple food changes. Even with my vegetarian habits, having dairy on my plate has been a pretty hard choice to break.
