Abuelita was married by 18, mami was married by 20, for us, the deadline was college graduation. No wonder las tias have been calling you cotorra for the past year.
I don’t have any kids.
I’m a childless 28-year-old, and that’s why I travel the world and do as I please.
I majored in photography instead of becoming a doctor.

It’s okay, I make enough money at my baller job to support both of us.
I don’t go to church every Sunday.
And now everything bad that happens in the family is my fault because God is angry
us me. Girl, please.
I’m back living with them.
