I thought about that long and hard because I think I was like that for a long time, even after I graduated. I missed home and tried to be as Chicana as possible.
Now, I am just myself. I enjoy being where I am and being who I am, which no, I haven't totally figured out, but I am not some identity construct or trying to be uber-barrio. Look, I'm a nerd, and I accept my quirkiness. That is something.
Anyway, here is more of my novel draft: The Harvest.
Be you. #Resist
