December Shorts 2

Continuing from yesterday, I expected the day to pretty much be the same but it was different.

I went to work like I normally do and when lunch came around, for some reason, I was just craving a burger. So instead of going into the food court like I normally do, I went to this restaurant/bar that I was introduced to a few weeks ago and I tried their onion ring burger. It was so good.

It is the start of Vlogmas and I’ve finally decided to do it this year. In an effort to be ambitious, I’ve also decided to daily blog ever day until Christmas. I’ll be vlogging on the Youtube channel i joint own with my friend. I don’t even now what I’m going to call this: Blogmas not that original. What ever it’ll be, you guys will see it in the Title above.

Today is December 1st 2017.

Today started out pretty standard. I got up a bit disoriented because yesterday (Nov 30th) was our Independence Day!. We’re celebrating 51 years of Independence and Rhianna herself came here to see the unveiling of the newly renamed “Rhianna Drive.”

But apart from that–

I woke up around 7 am and I got ready to go to work. On my way, I was planning on catching  ZR ( pronounced (zed- r), which is a smaller van type of public transportation, but I saw the bus and caught that instead. This actually proved to be a good thing, because I got a call from my boss asking me to come into the main branch. So instead of getting off and transferring to my second bus, I went all the way to Bridgetown.

After meeting with my boss, I did a tiny bit of quick shopping in town. I wanted to decorate my bedroom for the holidays as this would be the first time I’ve spent Christmas here in a long time.

I went to Woolworth and I got a snowflake garland and some string lights. I planned to put the up that night but it didn’t end  up happening. After this quick trip, I went to work (where I somehow ended up typing exam papers?) and passed the time.

For lunch, I had leftovers from the food my grandmother cooked the previous day and I also bought some salad.

After that I continued until it was time to close up and I had a pleasant surprise when two of my friends dropped by. They offered to give me a drop ( parlance for “a ride”) and on the way we got Chefette, which is our major fast food restaurant. The stayed with me until my grandparents came to pick me up.

That’s it for Day 1.

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!
