    • Home sweek home., I live in Tampa, FL I moved here from Puerto Rico in 2010. I live in a really nice community most of the homes around here have the same age. It's a quite neighborhood and I couldn't ask for more. I purchased my home as a fixer upper though it's been harder then I expected to fix. I do love my home and would like to see its true potential come to life. Even though it's an old home it still has plenty of life just like me. I currently work as a nursing assistant overnight. I enjoy my job, helping others have always been important to me.  Thanks for reading., South
