“A good person dyes events with his own color…and turns whatever happens to his own benefit.”– Seneca the Younger
Welcome to my internet lodge where I explore ideas and then write about them.
Here’s my 1 minute bio.
My name is Yessery Paulina Morales
I’m obsessed with learning languages.
English, Spanish, French, ASL,
some Portuguese, a little Mandarin Chinese,
and now I’m studying Russian.
I’m from the state of Jalisco in Mexico and now I live in Oakland, California.
My childhood was spent near Mount Lassen, an active volcano that on May 30, 1914, awoke from a 27,000-year-long slumber when it was shaken by a steam explosion. Summers were sensational days of swimming in Lake Almanor with my younger brother and sister until they left for the Bay Area come August.
I organized ideas for a start-up co-founder who imagined lightweight glasses covered in dazzling LED lights that lit up in a rainbow of shapes, colors, and patterns to your favorite songs.
Then it was all about a sweet commute at the speed of light elsewhere and I was introduced to the world of High Frequency Trading (See: ‘Democratizing’ Low Latency in this secretly fascinating industry).
One of my claims to fame is that I’m in the background crossing the sidewalk in this national geographic photo.
