“A Death Ends a Life, Not a Relationship”

From left to right: My great grandmother, me (at three years old), and my mother.

“A death ends a life, not a relationship.” This was said by Morrie, the main character of the book ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’. I can relate incredibly to this quote because I experienced the death of someone extremely close to me when I was a child. At only four and a half years old, Continue reading ““A Death Ends a Life, Not a Relationship””

31 Day Blog Challenge–Days 10-12

Day 10: Most proud moment

My most proud moment would be the day in which I received my first Honor Roll.

It had only been a month since I had just arrived to the United States from Cuba, and I remember my non-English-speaker self sitting in homeroom when some kids walked into the room and started handing out some papers: the invitations to the Honor Roll Ceremony. The moment the kids walked in, Continue reading “31 Day Blog Challenge–Days 10-12”

31 Day Blog Challenge–Days 4-9

These past days I was supposed to write every day for my blog challenge, but I didn’t want to post something every day with just one or two sentences, so I’ve decided that I will do these challenges in clusters of days, depending on how much is asked of me to be shared.


Day 4: My guilty pleasure Continue reading “31 Day Blog Challenge–Days 4-9”

31 Day Blog Challenge—Day 3

For today, I was supposed to talk about the meaning behind my blog’s name, but although I thought about writing it, I hesitated given I would most likely end up with several pages consisting of the reasons why I named it Modern Day Lilith. So, I decided to wait until later on in my blogger life to explain the reason why I chose the intriguing and possibly controversial alias.

Given the circumstances stated, I’m going to talk about my earliest childhood memory instead. Continue reading “31 Day Blog Challenge—Day 3”

31 Day Blog Challenge — Days 1&2

I should’ve started this challenge on October 1st but I had completely forgotten that I wanted to do this. Steffiandhercoffee was the one that inspired me to do this. For today, I won’t be doing the introduction because technically that’s already in my About Me page, so I’ll do 20 facts about myself. Here goes nothing!

“Remember and recover, not forgive and forget”: A Series Of Sleep-Deprived-Karla’s Thoughts

It’s so hard to have everything around you shift. Having to surround yourself with unfamiliar things and feelings; trying to minimize one of your biggest causes of pain. But as people say, “To heal a wound you need to stop touching it,” so that’s what I’ll do. That’ll be my most cherished goal at the moment, and I will succeed to accomplish it and work to learn how to move on and cease to Continue reading ““Remember and recover, not forgive and forget”: A Series Of Sleep-Deprived-Karla’s Thoughts”

‘The Beauty Behind Poetry’s Depth’ Series: Part 4

“Broken little girl”

In the sand near the ocean,

Sits a girl that I once knew;

A girl that I used to see,

As if she needed something new.

I thought she needed help, Continue reading “‘The Beauty Behind Poetry’s Depth’ Series: Part 4”

‘Guns N’ Love?’

I wrote this short story in a play format (kind of.) It was sort of inspired by a few writing prompts I saw on the internet. It has an open ending for everyone to let their imagination flow and create the ending that satisfies them the most (I hope you share in the comments what you think the ending was.) Enjoy!
