Meet Our Guest Blogger, Mercy Rivera
Hey guys! After Alli posted her intro I figured it was time for me to post one as well!
To start off like my fellow blogger, here are some my favorite things:
Black, Burgundy, and grey.
Pizza, burgers, soup, and Wings (I’m a big fan of spicy food!)
The Good Doctor, Stranger Things, Black Mirror, Leverage, Sherlock and American Horror Story! (I like a good variety)!
My bed (for napping, which happens on the daily), outside stargazing at night, where ever my dog is, the movies and Anywhere my friends are!
Yoga and the occasional hike to a pretty scenery!
Corpse Bride, Evolution, The Artist, Midnight in Paris, Doctor strange, Alice in Wonderland (the original animated one) and Crimson Peak! (I’m a movie fanatic! I’ve seen so many it’s hard to choose!)
Florence and the machine, Lorde, Nina Simone, Lesley Gore, Nancy Sinatra, Melanie Martinez, The Weekend, Two feet, and Natalia Lafourcade.
Winter and Fall
The origin story (of ya girl)
I was born in Gilbert, Arizona. When I was around 8 my family and I all moved to California where I pursued a career in Acting and modeling. Until we moved back to Arizona for my dad’s work (I was 14). When I moved back I told my parents I wanted to go to a regular school instead of online school which I’d been doing since Middle school. I transferred to a public high school my sophomore year and I graduated in May of 2017! In case you were wondering, I’m Mexican, both my mom and my dad are Mexican (My mom is part Irish). I have 2 older brothers and a fluffy dog named Laika! My family is full laughter, sarcasm, and really good food. I met Michelle through mutual friends and immediately hit it off! Since then we’ve become good friends and I’m always down to help her out!
Fun things about me (maybe)
Besides having a professional background in acting and modeling I also enjoy Art. One of my favorite things to do is to go to art museums with a good music playlist and walk around! Other than being an artist on the side I’ve always had a passion for writing. I’ve always got new ideas for poems, novels, or short stories! I love reading H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allen Poe, and Lewis Carroll, anything out of the ordinary and exciting! Scary movies and paranormal based YouTube videos are an obsession. I also love to sleep which makes me bad at replying to people! Exploring places and having Adventures is something I’m always down to do! One of my favorite forms of art is tattoos and I’ve been obsessed all my life with them! I was the first one family to get a tattoo! I got my first one when I was 17 after years of begging. It’s for one of my brothers that passed away a long time ago. The second one I got was when I was still 17. It’s a nickname my mom calls me. I love tattoos and I can’t wait to get more! I can’t sit still for too long or I’ll get bored (unless I’m sleeping)! I love changing my look up or adding to it. Like getting different haircuts, hair colors, tattoos etc.!
What I’m doing right now (mostly sleeping)
Currently, I’m going to a local Community College then transferring to a 4-year university. I’m working towards getting my B.A. in Creative Writing! Getting my degree in this gives me the freedom to do a variety of things I like doing, I could use it to help become a journalist, novelist or a lyricist to name a couple. What I’m going to minor in is still under debate. Recently I went back into the tattoo shop (now 18) to get more ink. Currently, I have 16 tattoos, they’re all on my upper arm. I went with my brother and he got his first Tattoo while we were there! I still love to model! Professionally, I usually shoot with Michelle (as you can probably tell), I also do some shoots for fun with my friends/family! Both usually give me awesome pictures to post on social media!
I hope you guys enjoyed getting to know me more! I’ll be writing more often so stay tuned!
