What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a lot going on in my life, but I just finished my master's
program and will be starting my doctorate program soon. If I'm not
at work, school, volunteering or hanging with my family... I'm
probably planning my next trip or dinner party.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well, I'm NOT very good at talking about myself... that's for sure.

learn for yourself...

The kindness and compassion of total strangers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I miss my father a lot. He's back home in Jamaica. So, I think
about that, and I don't know.... I try to live in the moment and
each moment brings a different array of thoughts. Today I was baby
sitting my cousin who's eight months and then I visited my
grandmother who is ill, and I thought about the beauty of life, how
it changes. How a day will pass without your permission and another
day after that... and if you don't stop to appreciate those moments
then your whole life may pass you by. But I don't think that's what
they were looking for when they wrote this question.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home working. That's why I need a man! Ha!
Seriously, I like to go out, have dinner and drinks on occasion,
but not often.

Who would seriously admit anything private on the internet? Haha!
