All you need to know about Iberian America

A Small Introduction Beyond the About Page

Published December 27, 2020 in Personal Stories & Opinions - 0 Comments

While this website is all about Latin America, I figured I might as well post one article more about myself personally.

I do have an “About” page on this website but I figured to keep it mostly relevant to anything LATAM as it is about the website itself and my time living here.

Anyway, this will be a fairly short article since some of the basic facts to post about myself are not needed to elaborate on too much.

Just figured I’d post some for any regular readers who are more curious anyway.

So here’s some basic facts about myself that are not written about elsewhere on this website.

  • Walden

It’s funny to look back at the bands listed above as many of them have not too much in common with each other.

My musical tastes have been all over the place over the years but it is what it is.

Here’s some songs I like a lot below (not necessarily from the favorite bands above).

  • Hard Candy

Here's some good clips of those movies below.

Favorite Comedians

  • Doug Stanhope
  • George Carlin
  • Bill Hicks
  • Richard Pryor
  • Sam Kinison

Here's some funny stand up bits from them below.

Free Time

What do I do in my free time when I’m not working?

Well, here are some things I typically do whenever I have the time….

  • Go to the bar or hang out with friends
  • Read some books.
  • Work out a little a bit (I’m definitely not a body builder but I do it to not get fat since my diet is shit lol).
  • Spend some time in parks chilling alone.
  • Going on dates with chicks from Tinder or wherever.
  • Listen to music.
  • Comb over some Portuguese language stuff alone to casually learn the language little by little.
  • Have a drink (or two or three or four or who knows how many…..)
  • Take a nap.

If I could, I’d have some pets I could spend time with also but it’s difficult given I don’t have official residency in any Latin country.

There is no way I’d get pets unless I had the legal right to live in a country down here.

I’d also like to get back to playing the guitar again but I’m not buying a guitar until I have that legal right like above.

On top of that, I’d love to have a truck and drive down the freeway like I used to.

To be able to go fast down the road with the sun and a blue sky overhead…

Windows down while a few nice songs like this one below...

And perhaps a nice lady on the side who can give me the head at the same time while I’m driving.

That sounds deadly.

But all of those things I won’t do until I have residency.

Otherwise, without residency, who knows if someday the government denies me the right to travel down here and I lose the guitar, the truck and the cats and dogs I would have down here.

So I’d add those things to stuff I’d do in my free time but I can’t right now due to circumstances – driving fast, playing a guitar and spending time with pets.

Anyway, that’s all I have to add here for now in terms of personal facts.

I might add more details here if there is anything else I think that someone would know.
