** CILLASTAR **

I love painting and drawing with charcoal. I have no real talent but do it because I love it. A sketch I did is below, done in '99. I love to sing even though I'm not good at it, just makes me feel good. The thing I love most is traveling even though I haven't been to many places...Puerto Rico, Florida, and local states where I live, Mass., Washington D.C. Penn.. There are alot of places I want to go like the typical spots, Hawaii, Cancun, Vegas, but I'm more interested in visiting places like China, India, Africa, Spain, and Isreal.
I have recently become alot more aware of my culture through visiting the island (Puerto Rico) and recently living in a predominately Hispanic area. I've become aware of issues like if P.R. should become a state and about the use of Vierques as a military training ground for bombing. I have no real opinion on if Puerto Rico should bcome a state since I don't have a first-hand account on what it is to live o the island but I rather it not be a state. As for the bombings, that really needs to stop. I wasn't really raised to incorporate my culture into my life besides the fact that I ate Pernil(pork) on Thanksgiving, and Pasteles on Christmas. I wasn't taught spanish and now struggling to learn it. I guess my parents thought it would have branded me ignorant or an immigrant in someway...I don't know really. I now see the distinciveness of being Latina. I see how our hair is neither Afro-American or Caucasion. I see the different delious foods we eat, and just the littles things that make our culture beautiful. I also see the obstacles and stereotypes we need to over come.

Main Page

* C I L L A S T A R *

This is my chance to introduce the author of this page, me. Cillastar. I am a proud, 22 year old boriqua born and raised in New York. I have the unpleasent disposition of not speaking fluent spanish, but I'm learning slowly. I still live here in New York City and go to college here. I want to become a physical therapist or study computer science but right now studying I'm liberal arts.

I have a boyfriend, Anthony, who I've been with for 4 years. I love him with all my heart. Some day we'll get married when the time is right. I guess it's just a case of being a chicken or maybe I still want alittle bit of freedom, who knows. We don't have any children. I have nothing against kids, but I know I'm not ready at all to be responsible for another life. Not to be silly or childish but we truly were made for each other. We met the day before Valentines day because of my sister and started going out 4 days later (2 days after my birthday!). The next day we spent 6 HOURS in a park next to a river in the FREEZING cold. I tell you now that I didn't feel the cold...well barely felt the cold. We never have broken up and hardly fight...well we don't fight often. We were apart for two months while I was on vacation, and we both were REALLY depressed. I just think he has to be the one. Well that's alittle bit of who I am. Thanx for reading all of this mumbo jumbo about me.


NEW EVENTS IN MY LIFE

1. I'm on the deans list. I finally got on the dean's list. I've wanted to get on it for a while and I finally accomplished it.
2. I have my own apartment. I have a beautiful place of my own with no distractions and peace of mind. I can concentrate on what is important in my life.
3. I'm saving for a car. It is not really an event, but a start to something I want to finish. I've wanted a car since I can remember.
