Hi! I am Catalino, or "Lino," for short. I am a jack-of-all-trades in perpetual training and knight of infinite faith. I aspire to learn and experience as much as I possibly can. I have a special interest in foreign languages, an insatiable appetite for travel, and a healthy drive for self-improvement. I am from New Jersey, but I have called other places "home." In my spare time, I explore and write. Thanks for visiting my corner of the Internet where I share my words and photos!
When life is hectic, I always make a point to walk off the stress. And it really makes a difference. There is something almost magical about walking that allows me to process what I need to do to get everything in order. #Walking #Therapy #BusyLife #SummerIsInTheAir
One of my favorite activities is to walk around the city and to take pictures of the graffiti throughout the city. And even though graffiti is technically a form of vandalism, I think that NYC would lose a lot of its character and charm if such "imperfections" were scrubbed off and painted over. #StreetArt
I have been back home for almost 2 full weeks now; and I can feel it in my bones that I have made the right decision. It is not easy to start over, and I am definitely grateful for the experiences that I had carved out for myself over the last 5.5 years. But I know that I need to be back in the NYC metro area where my close family and friends are. I know that I will find my footing here sooner rather than later. I just need to be proactive, productive, and patient. #The3Ps #FAITH
I have been back in the NYC metro area for almost 1 full week now; and I could not be more grateful. There is a feeling that you can sense in your body and smell in the air when you are where you grew up. It feels amazing to be back with my close family and friends. But I am convinced that the years that I chose to spend away from the East Coast helped me to appreciate and love it much more. I now know that the grass is NOT greener elsewhere. This is where I want to be and stay. #ForeverHome #BlessedForReal
