My Open Water "tri"-matic experience

I akin this experience to skydiving where my body was reacting to my nervousness all the way to the ranch a few years ago. I had puked all the way on the car ride. However, it was also acceptance that this was going to be happening. I was going to do my first open water…

I vent therefore I am

I forgot when I stopped writing frequently. I think I lost interest the day a peer mentioned that I didn’t proofread. I don’t think he knew how condescending that comment was to me at the time. People actually read this? No, no way, I don’t. This was my blog. I had been blogging before blogging was even…

Often I have had ideas for “political” cartoons and comics but decided against them. However, I’ve had some pretty terrible jobs, terrible bosses…

Behold! My Existence

This might undeniably be a first world problem post but, I’ll vent. Dear New Yorkers, While I might not be tallest female you may have ever seen, I do stand at almost 6 feet and tower most of you. Not only am I not vertically challenged, I’m an athletically built African-American (Caribbean American actually but…
