Sooooo, maybe it's about time I write something about me?? Let's see... I was born in Venezuela many many years ago (ok, 43w to be exact) and have lived in several places, all of which I love and have great memories of. In 1997 I met this gringo while I was living in Sao Paulo and started dating him. We did a year dating long distance, which was the most romantic year of my life and then decided to drop everything and move to NYC (he is a New Yawker!). After living in sin (catholic guilt kicks in) for 2 years we decided to get married in 2001... We moved from NYC after sept 11th to CT where I worked as a private banker for a BIG investment bank. Had baby girl #1 in 2003 and baby girls #2 in 2007. We moved to Mexico City that summer and lived there for 3 years. In 2010 we moved to Sao Paulo for his work (full circle!). And just recently, we moved back to the US where things are a bit crazy but hopefully settling soon!
How I got into the Twilight world ? I watched the movie first and was rather ashamed of buying the books. Everytime I went to the american bookstore here I would see them, open them, read a bit, put it back down and get a grown up book! In April of 2009 I finally succumbed and bought the first 2. Read them in 3 days, did not sleep and rushed to the bookstore to get the other 2. It was right around when the H1N1 outbreak hit us here in Mexico and everyone was panicking. So, we escaped the city and me and my 2 books sat by the pool of a lovely house we rented and I read and read and read. And I got really depressed...like really depressed. Thinking: why don't I have this same love for my husband? Where is my Edward? Did I settle for something and my real love is out there? It got sooo bad that I actually started to take antidepressants (depression runs in my family and it's a scary monster!). As usual, after 2 weeks of sleeping for hours and doing nothing, I decided that this was just plain ridiculous and stopped the bullshit!. Somewhere around that same time I found FanFiction and my life has never been the same.
I am a FicH00r and have found such incredible talents here that I am amazed every time I read a fic that moves me and I am soooo grateful for the courage you people have to bare your souls and share them with us mere mortals... I have also learned from every lemon that I have read and can proudly confess that my hubby is one happy camper (and so am I). My "real" book reading volume diminished considerably for years but lately have been also reading a lot of books. I am a huge supporter of all you brave authors that are publishing their work and I am super proud of you all!
As a good Sag I love traveling and going to new places. Please be aware that you will always have a place to crash wherever I live...
I thank you all for the time and effort you put into each of the stories that are in my Fav lists (which are complete stories) and my Story Alerts list (which are WIP that will move to my fav as soon as they r done) and know that I am patiently awaiting for your updates like the crackfick00r I am. I am forever grateful...
Much love to all and laters babes,
ps: you can find me in Twittah @carolamex, come and play with me!
