Case in point, pennythecorgi coming over to check on me heh.

So this happened earlier, pennythecorgi got out and when I rushed down the stairs to catch her I slipped and fell down the last couple of steps, twisting my ankle (with audible pop sound and everything) completely bent underneath me as I slid down the rest of the stairs. It was so painful I actually screamed out which is not something I tend to do in public.
Despite that, had to get up and continue attempting to catch her for a good 10-15 minutes, wincing every time my foot came down. Once I finally caught her, my ankle was red, swollen, and incredibly painful. Unfortunately now the rest of me is sore from falling and trying to compensate by leaning and hopping around on the good leg. The whole thing triggered both an asthma and panic attack. We did a quick consult since I’m still in pain despite the ice, and it’s radiating from my ankle all the way to my knee and hip, but it doesn’t look broken, so waiting to see how it is in the morning. Hopefully fine, cause right now I can’t move anything below my knees without shooting pain and can’t walk at all. Even with assistance, requires lots of hopping and stopping to catch my breath and I can’t manage it at all by myself. I tried crawling but that was also painful and taking more energy and breath than I had to give thanks to the asthma attack.

Fun day, heh? Ah well:/

"Hey brother, there’s an endless road to re-discover.
Hey sister, know the water’s sweet but blood is thicker.
Oh, if the sky comes falling down for you,
There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do.

What if I’m far from home?
Oh, brother I will hear you call.
What if I lose it all?
Oh, sister I will help you out!
Oh, if the sky comes falling down for you,
There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do.”


I know by now people are sick of hearing this song but these particular lines hit really close to home. This one and “Wake Me Up” would play several times when I was working for Skype and driving to Palo Alto. So much to the point that if one doesn’t make me emotional over my family, the other immediately brings back the beautiful scenes and landscapes I had the pleasure of driving by on 280.

I don’t regret moving from the California/Bay Area/San Jose to the Indy Area even if things didn’t quite work out the way I, and later on, Chris and I, had planned/hoped for. I do miss the sights of seeing the East Bay hills lit up with golden sunshine in the evenings, and the way the marine layer made it’s way from the mighty and cold Pacific to cover the Santa Cruz Mountains in such a mystical way. I grew up in Puerto Rico right smack dab in a valley surrounded by the hills and mountains that make up the “Cordillera Central” and fog hovering over the mountains until they seemed to disappear into thin air was a common and favorite, sight.

These songs make me cry and miss both those landscapes I left behind, though Indiana has provided me with amazing panoramic sky and sunset views, that can truly only be appreciated from standing in an empty field with nothing surrounding you and a full view of the sky. It’s provided me with an abundance of majestic thunderstorms that create an experience completely different from the storms in Puerto Rico, and a chance to at least be with family and friends as opposed to no family and only a handful of friends/acquaintances.

“It gets better”, I’ve heard so many times, but for me it’s taking a little more time, and I feel like I left huge pieces of my heart back in PR and the SF Bar Area.

Why do you have squinty eyes?
Because of the medicine I’m taking…
You look high!
