Domingo Tranquilo

85 °F

I have no major updates, just some photos. While life here is sure to be turbulent, my emotions as varying as a basket of fruit, I am happy. I think mainly because I have/am beginning to feel comfortable being myself here. I was so willing and ready to assimilate, to be what I needed to be to be accepted. But now I am finding, that no matter where I am or where life takes me, I only need be myself to be happy and ecstatic to find that that is enough for the people in my life here as well.

Entonces, vive la loca!

So first are some photos of my first 15th birthday. Kind of a big deal here. Its a girl's right of passage into that glorious womanhood.
