I still don't know what route this blog will take. I want to delve into more deep thought and conversation but I'm not sure how to go about this. I want to showcase photos of my adventures, but I also want to talk about feelings and mental health. I want to merge both of them, but I'm not sure I have the time to write such lengthy blogs.
A couple of weeks ago I went to the Pilsen Taco Fest. For some reason, I keep calling it Taco-Taco Fest. Honestly, I don't even remember its real name. (Update: It was called the Tacos and Tamales Festival) Its been a while and honestly, I wasn't even going to post anything because I didn't take many shots. It was SO HOT that day that at most we spent an hour and left. That sun was brutal! I did have an amazing Piña Colada (on which somehow I got a brain freeze in 100-degree weather) and I tried a Mexican sandwich called Panbasos. It was AMAZING! I'm not into really spicy stuff. After I turned 30 my stomach decided it only liked bland stuff, Adobo, and Mayo Ketchup, so I was a bit scared to try things.
I'm a bit upset that my body has accustomed itself to Chicago weather. I lived on a Caribbean island for 28 years. How am I complaining about 74 degrees being too hot? Have you ever felt changes in your body like this? Is this normal? Shouldn't my Latina blood kick in? #foodforthought
In non-related news: I finally was able to successfully connect my Alexa. My boss got it for me last Christmas but for some reason, I was unable to get it to work until now. So I want to give out a big shout out to my assigned FBI agent (what up Boo!!!) You're welcome for making your job easier. Just make sure you give me a shout out at your next employee review.
