Hello there! Me llamo Monica, Editorial Contributor for Monrovia Weekly. I live, eat, and breathe words. Give me a pen or a keyboard, and I'll go on rants for days. I'm the kind of person you don't want to go to a bookstore with ever because I will ignore you. I have left teaching 12th grade English behind because I'm not a grammar nazi, but I do get grammar strokes. Pop culture, social justice, and satire are some things I regularly enjoy reading. When I have reached my capacity for entertainment with those topics, I write poetry.
