My name is Rebeca.I am 20 years old.
One of the first things you’d probably learn about me is that I am obsessed with music and art. I cannot get enough of it. I am constantly listening to music or singing a song. There is not a time in my life where music hasn’t been important to me. I play acoustic guitar, but I wish to learn to play piano and the ukulele. I am also obsessed with art. I always have a sketchbook with me or my journal. I love sketching and writing; although I don’t consider myself to be very good. I wanted to go to art school, but that fell through. I kind of regret it.
I consider myself to be very odd and weird. I do not mind it :) I’ve learned that different is good. Now speaking of different, I have come to realize that I posses some very different aspects.
First off, I have a autoimmune condition called Alopecia Aereata. If you are not familiar with this (which you probably aren’t), keep reading. What this means is that my hair falls out. You might think this is “normal”, but it actually results in very patchy and very little amounts of hair. Doctors do not know exactly what causes it, but they think it is somehow related to stress. Therefore, if I’m stressed out my hair falls off. I was diagnosed with it when I was 3 years old. It was never really noticeable, I didn’t even know I had it until I was 12. I always just had quarter sized patches of hair missing, so they were really easy to hide. When I was 16, we moved to the United States from Puerto Rico, and it affected me very much. To the point where I lost almost all the hair on my head. At the age of 17 I started wearing wigs and I still do to this day. I do not like to, but I have to because my hair is too patchy to wear out. Its something I struggle with constantly, but I consider myself to be lucky because it could be something worse, but it is not. :)
Another aspect of me that is different to the “norm” is that I am a lesbian. A couple of years back I would have not been able to admit that to anyone, not even to myself. But I consider myself to have made a lot of progress in coming to terms with who I really am.I am in love with the most amazing human being I have ever met, she is my girlfriend. She is not only the love of my life, but my best friend, my confidant, my support, my happiness.
I am constantly trying to better myself and become the person I wish to be. I want to be able to fully be myself without having to worry what others will think of me, which is why I started this blog.
Also, on my other blog, I get loads of questions, especially those seeking advice. I feel as though I can address those questions here, being able to be more accessible and personal with my followers. I wish to get to know all of you, or at least impact your lives in some sort of positive way.
I love you all. Please do not ever feel as though you can’t ask anything or express yourself. Much love,
