100_0418Hello there!  My name is Mariel and yes, I am single.  Let me introduce myself as best as I can.

The picture you see above is from my younger and more careless days… obviously alcohol was involved as I am on top of my best friend like she was some kind of dolphin.

I have an extensive history of hilarious stories that include men and my poor judgement.  I try to look at it as best as possible, and laugh about it all the time.  Currently I hold two Bachelor Degrees; English and Anthropology.  Please don’t judge my grammar here… I tend to not proof read, and do this as a spur of the moment, go were my feelings take me… like relationships.

I hope to make you laugh, think, and always smile in some sort of way.  There truly is a silver lining to everything.

Case and Point:  Just recently I have been rejected by four institutions for grad school.  I cried, I asked “why?!” ( in the same way Marlon Brando yelled for Stella in a Streetcar Named Desire). But then, I figured out this:  I have tuition remission from the University of Miami for 13 months (my former employee), which means I go to school for free (up to 15 credits a year).  I have a great paying job, and well… put them both together!  I am now working from a different angle; I will be taking prerequisites in the core sciences to obtain a Masters degree in Human Genetics.  My goal is to be an evolutionary anthropologist, with a focus on genetics and disease.

You have to make lemonade if you get lemons. Or stick ’em in on your chest if you need a little more of a bust, but the thing is  you have to do something with what you get!  So go on MacGyver!

I came from Peru, love to run, and do yoga whenever possible.  Crying comes easily when watching Forrest Gump, and am I sucker for puppies.

If you can talk to me about science, history, literature, and all of it with a dash of humor… well, I might just fall in love 🙂

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you visit as much as possible
