Who Is Mamacita?


Welcome to my new site – something I was hesitant to do since deleting my original blogs (Saying Everything & Living Through My Music) late August 2016. …. It’s complicated.

My name is Cara, and I’m currently a stay at home mother, with nothing better to do than to listen to music and think about things I’d like to do, like writing, photography, and seeing my favorite musical acts in concert. 

The latter doesn’t happen often, since I don’t really like to leave my house.  Also, spending money I don’t make isn’t exactly on Kevin’s list of favorite things to do.  Kevin is my husband, by the way.  He’s a saint for putting up with my garbage. 

Speaking of not making money, being out of the general work force for 10+ years often raises doubt in an employer’s mind.  So, I choose to do this until I’m certified for something I’ve been on the fence about in recent months.  The ball has been rolled.  I just need to step up to the plate and finish.

But I’ll probably continue writing even when/if I find eventual employment, since it’s something I love doing.

Lately I’ve taken to watching two adorable British dorks on YouTube (who I had the rare luxury of meeting!!!!!!!), whilst working on several new projects.  Things take time.  And boy, do I have time.  I’m confident I’ll reach those goals. 

Meanwhile, music is like my air.  My sunshine and vitamin D.  Two specific artists satisfy those things.  Maybe I’ll blog about them once I awhile.  I used to blog a LOT about them, along with my other content, which, to be quite honest made no sense half the time.  But then again, my brain makes no sense.

Things like poor sleep quality, anxiety and depression can sometimes have that effect.  And if anyone tells me I shouldn’t talk about my health issues, they can just keep scrolling. If public self deprecation -mixed with what I consider humorous- helps me cope, then I’m going to do it. 

This is my therapy.  Along with adult coloring, crochet, photography, yarn hoarding, Netflix bingeing … oops.

Meanwhile, thank you for visiting, enjoy reading (hopefully?), and please, try not to take everything literal or read too much into what I write.  Some of it is for fun, and sometimes I just like to write things that people might relate to.
