Cruise 2017- St. Lucia

Of all the days that I had meticulously planned in my itinerary, St. Lucia was the day I decided that I would just walk around the capital, pray for some lovely St. Lucian bakes and just chill.

That did not happen

7 Day Cruise with Carnival Fascination!

As the title suggests, this post is going to be about a cruise that I went on a while ago         ( and when I say a while ago I actually mean in the beginning of June).

This post is just an introduction about what I’m going to talk about in the next 14 or so blog posts.

I thought a lot about whether to post this content or not. It would’ve been fine if I had posted it right after I got back form the cruise but now I’m not sure because of everything that has happened with Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.

However, I am still going to post these because I think we need a lot of positive things around us and also to see the beauty of the islands that were damaged ( especially Saint Martin/ Sint Maarten and Puerto Rico.

That being said, please donate in any way you can to the countries that were affected. I’ve donated multiple times and I am really proud of the feedback that my little island have been giving in order to support our regional brothers and sisters ( we’re talking everything from hosting families and children, to sending armed forces and medical practitioners)

I’ve Graduated! So now what?

So it has come that time that every college student dreads- Graduation.

Well not really graduation so much as the thought of leaving college and going into the big ole’ adult world.

I won’t really go into how I feel as I’ll save that for my actual graduation post, this is more an update as to what I’m doing and what’s going on in my life.

When I say I’ve graduated, I mean I have my certificate that states that I am officially a college graduate but right now I’m not really processing it. The official graduation ceremony is going to take place later this month and I know some of you consider this to be late for graduation as a lot of you have graduation directly after final exams.

If there’s one thing I’ll say, is that I got really lucky.

  • I passed all my exams
  • I graduated with Honors ( I guess its the equivalent of a magna cum laude)
  • I got a job
  • and finally I am pursuing new and exciting things

So right now for me, life is going okay. I’m doing things that I enjoy and I am working towards future goals as well.

 

Well that’s all!

See ya later!

Review Thursday: Firstlife by Gena Showalter

You know a book is unmemorable when you can’t even remember the name of it or some important plot point. Or maybe it’s my fault since I didn’t write up this blog post as soon as I finished read the book.

I first got introduced to this book thanks to Epic Read summary video on it. I thought the idea behind the book, sounded like a pretty good idea: basically, the life that you are living in is your first life. In the afterlife or Everlife, as it’s called in the book, there are three worlds: Myriad, Troika and The World of Many Ends. In order to end up in either Myriad or Troika, you must pledge, or make a covenant with them. If you don’t, you’re unsigned, and the unsigned go to The World of Many Ends.

It is essential that you sign your Everlife, so that you don’t end up in The World of  Many Ends.Unlike Troika and Myriad, no one knows if the The World of Many Ends really exists or of it’s just a scary story to tell children to get them to sign with with Myriad or Troika.It is presented as a kind of hell- where nightmares come to life.

Review Thursday: Blackbird by Anna Carey

So wow I’ve got some thoughts about this book. They range from wow to huh.The premise of the book is that this girl wakes up stuffed inside subway tracks, memory lost, with a train heading towards her. I don’t want to spoil it bu the main problem she faces in this book is that she is amnesiac, she’s being framed for theft and that she’s being hunted in this elaborate game by the rich and wealthy.

The story was told in a second person “you,” which is a bit jarring as I wasn’t used to it however, as “Sunny” lost her memory, it was fitting and I got accustomed to it. I thought the ending was too sudden and made no sense but finding out that it’s a duology,it made sense.

Food Fridays: Dulcinea Churros

Bryant Park’s Winter Wonderland took place from to January 2nd. I tried Mr Bing Food and did a review on it. This post is about one of the other foods I tired.

The next thing to try was churros. I was a bit worried because I thought that this booth would be extremely popular but  surprisingly, when I went, it wasn’t that busy. This booth had a variety of churros. They had plain churros,  and mini ones with chocolate, dulche de leche in it. In addition to this, they also had hot chocolate and if I remember correctly cider. I wanted to try the churros with the melted chocolate inside of it but I decided as with the Bing, that it was best to start with the original first.

The Rockettes

We saw the Rockettes!

On January 2nd, my aunt and I went to see the Radio City Rockettes performance. It was the last day of the Christmas Spectacular show and I was very excited.

We took the train and arrived around 10 am. The show started at 11 but they recommended that you get there an hour earlier for security and to get through the lines and find your seats before the show started. When we got there however, the lines were short and even if they were a bit lengthy, they moved quickly. My aunt and I popped into Nine West, which was on the street opposite Radio City and even though we got in the line around 10:20,we still moved quickly.img_20170102_101154-min
