Have you ever been to a library with me? You’d know, for certain, I’m like a child in a candy store. I’ll tell you about every book, what they’re about, all about the author, what it says on page 270, the different editions, how many people hate it and like it, and if you should read it. Bookstores have been my favorite place, as a kid, because I could escape and travel and adventure for hours. Today was no different. Happy Sunday 🌈

When I was younger, I constantly said I wanted to change the world. Be a doctor. A lawyer. Maybe President. God had other plans. Bigger plans than mine, of course. So the mission is this: teach the future doctors, lawyers, maybe presidents. And I’m having the time of my life doing it. Welcome to year 3 of middle school. Day 1 is down. 179 days to go πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ«βœŒπŸ» #SchoolBackinSession #teachercastro

I’m back, from DR, and already I need my Helados Bon, my empanada de Castillo, pollo Victorina, the light to go out at random times just because the government can’t get it together, the fruit trucks yelling what they’re selling at 6am, the roosters crowing too early, the neighbors being chismosos, the domino playing... everything. Pero, instead, Im here. In New York. Que se va a hacer? // so enjoy this selfie, before the plane flew away from the motherland and I held back tears while eating dominoes pizza and my last bit of ice cream πŸ˜­πŸ‡©πŸ‡΄

My dad was known for being the quickest and coolest at roller blading around the block. He taught me, when I was young, and it obviously worked. In my dreams πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ today, I went to one of the spots he frequented as a teen. What a cool experience πŸ‘‘β­οΈ

Same girl. Same window. Same walls. But this new girl is 25. And the one on the last picture was 7. And man, she was so sassy and intelligent. And she remembered everything. One thing she still remembers is her wonderful childhood. Walking through this neighborhood reminds me of it all πŸ‘‘β˜€οΈ
