It still surprises me that there are questions I am asked somewhat frequently. So I decided to answer them below.

  • Why are you so weird?
Hmm I don't know. Is this a trick question? I think it is subjective.

  • What do you do for a living?
I mentioned before I can't really talk about my job because I can get in trouble.

  • Why did you start blogging?
I wanted to work on my school's newspaper, but I was told my articles were a little too much. A friend suggested, I open a blog and post the articles I would have given the newspaper there. So I opened Beyond Poison and kept it up for a year, the time I would have been part of the newspaper. I thought that would be it, but I just couldn't stay away so I came back to the blogosphere a few months after my original challenge was over.

  • Why did you stop doing The Colors of Chaos?
Life. I moved around for a while and that complicated things a bit. Then, I got a day job that just didn't allow me the time.

  • Will you ever bring it back?
Absolutely. I am actively working on this. I hope it is back by the end of summer. But I have also been toying with the idea of turning it into a podcast, which seems to be a better option.

  • When will the podcast go live?
Patience. I have everything ready. I even started recording! But I hit a rather huge bump on the road. I don't want to talk about it. I am doing my best so it goes live in a few months time, or you know, before it has been a year of the original announcement. (Side note: Besides iTunes, of course, the podcast will live here.)

  • How did you break your ankle?
I am aware the story is so disappointing for how bad the break was. But you can still read all about it here.

  • Who is your favorite author?
Gabriel Garcia Marquez.*

  • What is your favorite book?
One Hundred Years of Solitude. You can read all about why here.

  • Where are you from?
I grew up in a really small town in Mexico. I often have nostalgia attacks from my time there and I write about it plenty around here.

  • Out of all the places you have been to, which one is your favorite?
I think I like all in their own way. The views, the food, the architecture, the culture, the people. I just enjoy exploring new cities. I love the experience of taking a walk across a city and just breathing it all in. There is nothing quite like the moment you realize you have stopped wishing you were somewhere else... Paris is definitely at the top of the list though... for now.

  • Life motto?
Live, learn and move on.

*Many of you will think it is a direct result of his death, but I invite you to check my blog archive and you will find him there plenty through the years.
