Endless Summer

Summer cyah done. Kes was right.

I mean sure, the earth can revolve around the sun the requisite number of times, and in places where temperature is dictated by seasons, there will be noticeable chill in the air, but that doesn’t mean summer ends. The spirit of summer is always tucked away in the hearts and minds of students looking forward to months of freedom, people with wanderlust that seek new adventures and men who yearn for shrinking hemlines.

Thank God It Was Fantastic Friday -Burning Flames Reunion

Now that I’ve had the chance to recover from the sheer epicness that was the Burning Flames reunion on Friday 17th July 2015, I can come tell you all about it. Like so many of my contemporaries from Antigua Barbuda I grew up listening to Burning Flames.I vividly remember being hoisted high above the crowd at Jampond by my godfather, and naively explaining to my perturbed mother why at eight years old I should be allowed to sing “if you get what you want tonight, will you remember me tomorrow”.

As for this recap, firstly- OHMERGERDDD! I can scarcely believe that I actually saw Onyan, Oungku, Krokus and Fox on the same stage. With their instruments. Performing! Yea,it actually happened unlike *cough* the last time dem bluff ahwe.

Orange is the New Black- Five Life Altering Lessons

#OITNB literally took the entire Netflixdom by storm when it debuted in July 2013. The series offers a fictional peek behind bars in a U.S federal correctional facility. Admittedly, it has more than its fair share of sex and masturbation, but it also has a diverse cast and characters with unconventional stories.  The much awaited season three came out on early release on June 12th and I have finnnnaaaalllly finished binge watching.

About them grades though...

Am I the only one who is getting anxious about their grades? I’m fighting the compulsion to check and re-check to see if grades are posted every 2.5 seconds. The only thing that stops me is the niggling thought that maybe; just maybe I might not actually be happy when I see them.

 It’s not that I doubt my intellectual capabilities, but any undergrad student will tell you, when it’s time to study there is an infinite list of things that suddenly require your urgent attention.

A Woman's Place Is In The Kitchen

It would appear that I'm turning into quite the feminist these days, and with good reason. Here's the context:
I'm a student at one of the greatest universities on earth. It's a bubbly melting pot of various ethnicities and nationalities which makes for stimulating discussions and opportunity for cross cultural integration. I suppose that it is with this in mind that the school instituted Culture Day. There, staff and students have the opportunity to sample cuisine from as far as Nigeria and close to home in Jamaica.

2014 Anno Domini

In all my years of knowing myself…

In all my years of social media junkie-isim…

NOT ONCE have I ever made and/ posted a grand sweeping New Years declaration.
