I can’t believe I’m going to be there.
I’ve been thinking about it for the past three months.
I know I’m not going to live through it.
I was born in Brooklyn, New York.
My father was a truck driver, so he came here to start his career.
He had an apartment and a car, and he got to know a lot of people.
He got married and had a daughter, and my father had a baby girl.
And then he came back.
When I was growing up, I was in high school.
My mom had a big house with a garage.
So he moved out, and I had a lot more friends, and it was a lot harder.
It was harder than it was when I was a kid.
I never saw it as an opportunity to do something that I loved.
But I think when I look back at my life, I would never have had the opportunity to have that.
I think my dad was really good at giving me a sense of hope.
I always loved to watch TV and movies.
I had the biggest collection of television sets.
I would always watch all of them.
I watched them in the house and the garage, and then I would get out of bed and go into the living room, and there was the television.
I’d see the pilot of a TV show and go, “Oh, I can do that!”
I was always thinking about what was going to happen in the future.
When my dad moved out to the suburbs, he didn’t really know what to do with me.
I didn’t know what the world was going.
I just knew that it was the same old stuff.
I knew that I was going into this same old place again.
I did a lot to make it better for myself.
I tried to find things that I could relate to and that I thought were relevant to my life.
I found myself playing basketball and baseball and football and soccer.
I wanted to be in a football stadium.
I went to a school for the deaf.
I really was looking forward to that.
But my mom’s career, she had to move out of New York because of the earthquake.
She had to go back to her native Argentina.
It took me three years to get back to the United States.
I lived with my father, and we didn’t have much money.
I could go out for dinner.
I got to go out with my friends and just have a nice dinner, but I also had to stay up late watching television.
And I started getting into drugs.
I started going to parties.
I took drugs, and you know, my mom was like, “No, you need to get help.”
So I was really depressed.
I wasn’t able to work.
I lost my job.
So my dad had to pay my college tuition, and when he was paying for college, my mother was going crazy.
She was so depressed.
And she started to ask for help, and that’s when I started taking drugs.
So, I became really dependent on it.
So I didn, in a way, take my own life.
And the next day, I got really ill, and was in a hospital bed for two weeks.
I couldn’t go home.
And my dad couldn’t get home because I was so sick.
So they had to let me out of the hospital and go back.
And he was in the hospital for a week, and she was like my baby.
He was in shock, and the next morning, he was like “I didn’t do anything.”
So, that’s how my life ended.
I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which is a very, very severe form of depression.
I need to be on medication.
My mother said, “Don’t be sad, be happy.
Just be happy.”
And that was really hard.
And so, I had to do some things to be happy, like going to the gym, going to therapy.
And at the same time, I started trying to do my own things, like cooking.
I’m now a chef.
And that’s where I found my love.
My family is very supportive of me.
They didn’t want to give me a bad name.
They were so proud of me, and they thought I could do it.
And they encouraged me.
But they weren’t going to pay for it.
My dad had a good relationship with my mom, so my mom just got on with it, and things were going great.
So that’s why I’m happy now.
But there was a point in time where I was trying to be my own person, and so that’s what I had.
I felt like my mom and I were not going anywhere.
We didn’t need her.
And we could live with it.
That was really important to me, because it gave me a real sense of being
