POETRY RULES!!!

I've been preoccupied with doing nothing for a week or so now. Poetry makes me happy. How cool is it to just jot down your feelings (they could be good or bad) and transfer all that energy onto the paper? You feel so relieved after all the debacle.

ADVICE: It doesn't always have to rhyme hahahaha :=)Yeah so try going the poetry route when:
a) your coworker/boss pisses you off
b) you wanna praise someone special in your life
c) when your best friend needs cheering up
d) when u secretly wanna harm someone but then you realize that being incarcerated suckse) the list goes on........

Remember to be good if you can't be bad!

A FEW ECONOMIC RESOLUTIONS FOR THE CARIBBEAN

One of the major issues that hinders Caribbean integration is the economic capability/stability of each island. People should ease up on buying/importing products that are not Caribbean made. I for one buy mostly local and Caribbean made products when I'm home; example: instead of buying Heinz ketchup I buy Grace ketchup. I do the same when buying sodas, coffee, cheese, rice, spring water, snacks, tin products, among many other items. They taste better anyway.

Non governmental organizations should help the unemployed to start farming in all areas. Ginger sells for a lot of money in some countries, England being one of them, but not many local farmers grow it (I plan on going into the ginger farming business in a few years). In Jamaica for example we should renovate the textile factories and start making quality clothing that we can export and stop spending an arm and a leg on foreign designer clothes. We have so many local designers that need more distribution. The clothes are worthy of a space in any of the fine department stores situated in the fashion capitals of the world.

I'm basically trying to say we should create/support Caribbean owned businesses and keep as much money as possible flowing within the islands.

WHO AM I? GO FIGURE!

Born in Kingston, Jamaica. Lived in many different houses, my real home is that of my grandparents. My maternal grandma is my heroine, her name is Cinderella (no kidding!). Hope she'll live to be a 100+ years old and see how succesful I'll become. I'd like to take her on various trips, she seems to enjoy being on airplanes but hates elevators and escalators. Go figure!

I was the only grandchild she taught how to read, supposedly I was 3 years old. Hence my being such a nerd. Cindy is strong as an ox and looks younger than her 80+ years. We both have a petite frame and resembled each other when I was a youngster. I look more like my dad last time I checked. Hence my being mistaken for a boy a few times during my childhood. Go figure!

What I am getting at is that I am who I am because of who my grandmother is. Go figure!
