By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there avid readers! So I am almost done with this semester. Woohoo! I’m so excited to go back home, hug my mom and kitties and kiss my fiancé. Also, I’m looking forward to actually having some me to write and read. I don’t get a lot of time to do that unfortunately but I will be doing that for three weeks….when I’m not working at the movie theater dealing with a bunch of customers who are unhappy with their seating arrangements with Star Wars.
