Why do I enjoy naval gazing? The unexamined life is not worth living. – Socrates
I am Elenamary, hear me roar; RRRROOOARRRR!
I am a Xicana that is happily creating her own space where one will find awesomeness and failure.
I was born to a Mexican-Mother and an Irish-American father. I have gender, class, race and cultural identity issues which I blog about quite a bit.
I am a triathlete competing for a slot at the world championships for age-group triathlon, I enjoy my job that “pays the bills”, I love traveling, and have a self-imposed rule that I can never spend my birthday in the USA.
Having trouble focusing on anything for too long, I’ve run for political office, been a union organizer, fostered a half-dozen children, studied medicine, urban geography and queer feminist performing artists, worked as a medical interpreter, and a higher education access advocate. I love lots of things but suck at trivia.
Most importantly though I love days with no set plans because I am a combination of stubborn, adventurous and despise being programmed what to do—that is to say I love my free will.
