Melanie introduces herself to her audience on this website after a period of absence. She acknowledges that the coronavirus pandemic affected her motivation and her family's routine, but also admits that she had already seen a decline in her writing habits before the pandemic. Melanie attributes this decline to chronic headaches and the associated effects of managing her chronic pain. Despite her struggles, Melanie is determined to get back to writing, even if it's at a slower pace. She welcomes new readers to her blog and reintroduces herself to her longtime followers.
Melanie shares a bit about herself, including her Puerto Rican heritage and her multicultural family. She speaks Spanish fluently and loves to share her cultural traditions and cuisine with her loved ones. Unfortunately, Melanie lives with several chronic illnesses, including idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), chronic migraines, and depression, which she has been battling for the past seven years.
Over the past year, Melanie has spent a lot of time with her family, enjoyed streaming services, and built her own island on Animal Crossing. She has also been busy planning her daughter's party, formalizing her freelance professional services, and practicing her photography skills with the release of New Pokémon Snap. Melanie and her family are currently enjoying a more relaxed summer schedule.
