Lets see, where to start???
My name is Crystal Rivas. I'm 23 years old and I'm a full time transfer student at City College of NYC. During my last semester at Bronx Community College I was offered a position as a ePortfolio tutor, which is my current position. I am not married and I don't have children. I live with my mother and younger brother in Washington heights.

I graduated from Bronx Community College with an Associate degree in Liberal Arts. I was originally majoring in education but when I was notified that a few of the credits weren't transferable I immediately changed it. However, that does not change my plans towards becoming an educator.
My daily life is a constant cycle of home, school, and work. From Monday through Thursday I am up by 8 am, and I take an hour freshening up and having breakfast. I honestly can not function in the morning without my warm shower and hot cup of coffee. My school day normally ends by 3: 30 the latest. By that time I am on my way to work. With the little time I actually have for myself I spend time with my friends, family and boyfriend. We often go bowling, paintball shooting, dancing, and often to dinner and a movie.
However, these are not things I look forward to doing. I much rather stay home reading and writing. These days I can't seem to find enough time to actually do the things I want to do. I enjoy reading anything as long as it's fiction. I don't read nonfiction unless I have to. I read to step out of my world and into someones Else's. I really need a happy ending in order to be satisfied with a book. I'm talking about books like harry potter, dark fire, Ella enchanted even heartbreaking books like the Kite Runner and A thousand splendid suns(lately I've really been into Manga and Japanese animations).
