When approaching something new you never know what the outcome is going to be. I felt this way when I first signed up for the writing workshop– I was worried that I wouldn’t fit in, or worse, that no one would like me. I’m sure I’m not alone in these kinds of fears, but I told myself that you will never know unless you open yourself to new experiences.
I’ve been so busy with this writing workshop and all of the festivities related to Day of the Dead that these last couple of days have been a blur. As I sit here in my apartment and listen to the sounds of mariachi music blaring from the dive bar on the corner, it brings a smile to my face. Even on a Tuesday evening, this place is a non-stop party. And the energy and enthusiasm is contagious.
