Hey! This is me

Hello! How are you today? 🙂

The world sucks, huh? … No? Get out of here!
Yes? Oh, you are so very welcome my friend.

I’m Laly 🙂 And I’m here to share with humor all the shit (strike that) stuff that life has put me through, with the solo intention to help you avoiding the mistakes I’ve made… Or maybe face them, like I’m trying to. Please check this post to understand a little bit more.

I am a writer (mom says I’m a lawyer, which I am, but I hate it) I was born and raised in Argentina, and now I split my time between the third biggest city of my motherland – Rosario – and New York City (US).

Quick facts about me? I was born in the 70’s, I am a dreamer and a hopeless believer, mother of two cats, divorced, and a Blockhead (a.k.a. devoted fan of NKOTB). I’ve been working as a freelance writer since 2004, writing thesis and essays for professionals of different fields, and also mentoring college students.

About This Blog? As I told you before, my main goal is to share – without the drama – the heavy experiences that I went through. An awesome group of ladies raised me with this premise, “Laugh about it. No matter what; Laugh about it”. That being said, we had a blast at my grandamother’s funeral (while we were crying a river); her name was “Lucía”, and she still shines like a “light” on my life.

Laly York is my pen name, and these are the ways you have to contact me:
