Man of the Moment

This week’s man of the moment is The Typewriter on Sesame Street. He would often start typing the letter of the word he wanted to show on myself and after he figure out the word  was he would show us the action or object with it.


He was not much of talker….actually come to think about it he usually just make sounds like “Noo-nee-noo-nee-noo” after he said the word he typed out.


He appeared a total of 26 times on Sesame street in order to show you all of the letters of the alphabet.


Congrats Typewriter guy you made this week’s MAN OF THE MOMENT!!




The return of sorts…

Hello my name is Clarissa and I had couple of weeks of chaos but in a refreshing way…

I am not the kind of person that leaves for lack of attention but there have been times in my life where I need to refocus on things. For the past year I felt really lost and without direction. It made me really frustrated at myself so I felt needed sometime alone to rethink, and reevaluate a lot of things and views I had about myself.




So late last year I made the drastic decision to bow out of a lot of social media outlets I had enjoyed (i.e. Facebook, Instagram) because I didn’t think I serve a purpose to anyone nor to myself.  I just felt like I have gotten to a breaking point of being so overwhelm with things I just wanted to run away  with my Verbot to a deserted island and never make any form of human contact again.

However during this hiatus away from those outlets it finally made me question myself:

Who am I? What do I love? What do I want to do? Who is Clarissa?


But then something happen I slowly realize those answers to those questions and becoming more ok that that ones I did not have answers for that was fine because I will always be a work in progress.

I am becoming better with being different and not having to fit in.


I am ok with who I  am as a person, and dancing to the beat of my own drum:


I am finding and reconnecting with interests I had in the past and finding out new ones:



Then I had a lot of people reach out to me over the time I was away from social media and I didn’t feel as alone and overwhelm with things. It made me feel love and like I matter.




Thank you to everyone that has lend an ear, a text or a email to me. It has meant so much to me.

This experience has taught me that sometimes you need to take a time out for yourself. Life is short, life is precious. Make it the best one you have. Fill it with good people, travel to unknown places. Make a life that you would be proud to call yours.


I have been constantly updating my wordpress and will be starting a novella in February.








“People are frightened by what they don’t understand…”

Movie pick of the day: The Elephant Man (1980) directed by David Lynch. The first time I saw this movie was when I was nine and visiting my family in Guatemala. There was only seven channels that worked and two of them offered to play movies every evening on the weekends. They would always show the same movie for a month and I was lucky enough to experience this one. The first time I saw this I was scare and horrified of John Merrick but thanks to repeat viewings of this movie  I began to sympathize with a person who just wanted to be like everyone else. But was consider an outcast because of the way he looked. This movie taught me that what is in the inside of a person is more important then their exterior.


I heard it through the “raisin” vine..

I remember watching cartoons every Saturday morning and being as equally amped up about watching certain commercials as much as the cartoons. Especially the ones that showcased claymation. One of my favorite claymation commercial was the one that showcase a group of singing raisins.  Growing up I thought that the California Raisins was the coolest signing group ever to hit Saturday morning programming. Does anyone else remember them?




Sesame Street sings!

I grew up watching Sesame Street. Some of my earliest tv watching memories were of the songs on this show. They were short, catchy tunes that seemed to always involve numbers, colors or manners. Below is some of the album covers from the show that were as quirky and cool as the songs on them.
