The Last 5

If you’d be interested in seeing the last 5 pictures on my phone… I am no professional image-maker but I find beauty in the candid shot. So when my friend sent me this one that her phone captured mistakenly when we met for a hot cocoa and a catchup on Friday, I saved it to…

Nikon or Canon

I’ve been blogging now for over 4 years and I think it is time I finally upgraded my equipment and got a proper, professional camera. What do you think -are you ready for some professional grade photographs on this site? I would say I’ve done pretty well with the shots I’ve been able to capture with…

Views

I have a little YouTube channel. I struggle to break 100 views on my videos and when I do, I smile like I’m auditioning for a toothpaste ad. And then Bruno Mars releases a new music video and in less than a week, he racks up these stats: And you know the hard part, a…

NYC Marathon Lawsuit

I got an email today that puzzled and excited me. It came from the NYRR (New York Road Runners) group, the organization that runs the New York City Marathon. For several years, I have applied to get into the lottery. If you don’t know, there are way more people applying to run than they can allow…

NaNoWriMo2016 Week 1 Update

Currently, I’m…. Writing my NaNoWriMo novel which is probably the most ambitious project I’ve ever worked on in this challenge. I didn’t say too much about my plot before because I started the month not having a clue what the story would be about. After 7 days of writing, I’ve decided it will be a YA mystery,…

Sleeping With The Enemy

Do you sleep with something that is doing you more harm than good? Whenever I fall asleep with my phone close to me, I wake up with a headache. I used to sleep with my phone in my bed. I use my iPhone as an alarm (and almost everything else). During the day, I am mostly glued…

I Love NY

(I found this love letter I wrote to my city some time ago and thought I would share it with you)     The first time I visited New York as a tourist was 14 years ago. I was living at home in Jamaica but had come to see my friend, Novia, and be a part…

The Last 8 or 10 

I haven’t been sharing a lot of what’s going on in my life lately and I never want to come across as being preachy – like I’m trying to tell you what to do in your life without telling you what I’m doing in mine. This blog is a personal space for me to share…

Big Weekend, Bigger Week

I saw this awesome quote and picture on Instagram.   “You do it because the doing of it is the thing. The doing is the thing. The talking and worrying and thinking is not the thing.” Setting goals and talking about them are one thing. But the act of working on them is quite another feat….
