I guess this is how I’ll start…

I’ve always had trouble writing when I don’t have to do it. There is always the underlying fear that my writing will never be good enough. So consequently my lyrics, short stories and poetry are hidden in a folder inside of a binder on the top shelf of my closet. Unfortunately, I love to write, and sometimes the fear slips out from under me and I want my words to be shared. Sometimes it’s because I feel as though I have relatable content, and other times it’s because it’s therapeutic. Still, those moments are rare, so maintaining this blog is going to be a challenge.

Despite having stage fright so to speak, I’m a quirky mess in all that I do. I promise. It’s just what happens when you mix Panamanian culture, spicy Cajun food, Mardi Gras vibes and Texas charm and call it Sabrina. Around grown-ups I mind my p’s and q’s, but when I’m on my own I love to explore the ins and outs of the world. It’s what rock climbing and music festivals can do to a person. On the downside, I’m horrible at social interaction. Even though I’m a hostess, the person who is supposed to be smiling, bright and sociable, I always feel like hiding behind the front counter.  On top of that, I’m clueless when it comes to my love life. It exists, it’s just dysfunctional on my end.

Because of my Latin heritage, my faith has always been a huge part of my life, even though people judge me for it. People assume that because I’m Catholic that my number one goal is to either convert them or destroy them which is in no way true. Because I’m Catholic, I do my best to love and support the people in my life.

What I’ll write about? I’ll figure out about 3 a.m every other day. When I’ll post? Who knows.I just know that this blog is for me to work on my medium and to express myself. I guess this is when I stop writing and start thinking about what to do with the rest of my day.

-Sabrina
