So I Was Happy, but I Wanted to End My Life


COMING SOON:

“So I was happy… but I wanted to end my life. And for good reason, too, 

because I was realizing that money couldn’t make me happy, only time could, 

but society had forced me to sell my time to make money––

which seriously interfered with happiness instead of bought me any.”

In America's Heterogeneous Capital


 

In America's heterogeneous capital, beyond the politics and amongst the average citizen, legal and illegal… shades of human classification and identity compete against the overwhelming persuasion of human sameness.

Living in the Dynamic, Quirky Microcosm


Living in the dynamic, quirky microcosm of Chinatown, District of Columbia––where the city’s main hobbies are drinking, hard Salsa, and begging for a dollar––all Melissa, part-time writer, part-time lesbian, wants to accomplish is the easy task of convincing four grown men to give her a chance behind the bar of Cubanacán––without letting them find out she’s sleeping with the Colombian bartender already there, first.

Navigating With Backwards Men


Navigating in a world full of backwards men, foreign cultures overlapping and pushing against each other, segregations of the mind––and the further awkwardness of being a lesbian in love with a Colombian man who’s significantly better at getting concha than she is, 

Melissa introduces the vibrancy of her underground city through the effervescent chaos of restaurants, the harder-to-remember night life, the people who live on the streets, and the quirks of the Latin culture as she sees it.

What Can Only Be A Satirical Story


With a wry sense of humor, Melissa tells what can only be a satirical story of what it’s like to live in a state of total absurdity––rescued just barely by her own grounded logic, blurred sexuality, and her intellectual mentality mixing with the warmth of salsa and the Latin culture. 

She survives with only the one, small hope that she might one day be qualified to be in charge of her own destiny… and lead it the fuck out of there.
