I think this is the longest I’ve gone without publishing a blog post, and I apologize for my absence! It’s not that I haven’t been doing anything, I was just going through some sort of a slump where everything I wrote just didn’t seem…like me. Unfortunately, my blog suffered but I’m back now! I’m still not where I’d like to be, but I just can’t stop writing, right?
|Happy Independence Day Grenada!
On February 7th, Grenada celebrated its 39th year as an independent nation. My dogs Vader (left) and Obi (right) wore their national colours proudly!
|Just another day at the office|
I learned to swim in this pool and now I’m responsible for another generation of swimmers. At least that’s what I tell myself. This is my part-time hustle. I’m managing a Learn to Swim club full of
hyper eager new swimmers.
As part of our media tour to promote V-Day activities and the Vagina Monologues, Sacha (organizer of SGU V-Day) and I appeared on morning television talk shows Daybreak Grenada and Chit Chat and on an afternoon radio program. I took this picture inside the Daybreak studio; that’s not us on the set. 🙂
On V-Day we brought the rising to SGU! We observed One Billion Rising – the global call to action to end violence against women and girls. We did a flashmob in the student center and these guys gave out free hugs!
|Sweet Sunday mornings|
Early one Sunday morning I told my parents that we should go to the beach. It was a great decision. For a family who lives 10 minutes from this stretch of gorgeousness, we don’t visit the beach nearly as often as we should. Terrible.
|Doing my civic duty|
On February 19th, I woke up before the sun rose to join the line outside of the polling station to cast my vote in Grenada’s General Elections.
|Impromptu public holiday = beachside lunch|
Because in Grenada we get a public holiday after the election. My parents and I went to Aquarium Restaurant for lunch by the beach.
The dogs were just being extra cute one morning. Chouette (left), Obi (top right), Vader (bottom right).
March 1-3 was the first annual Etang National Swimming Championships and I spent the weekend as an official at the meet. I’m with one of my Learn to Swim coaches Richard during the break in the meet. I have nothing to say about my hair.
|Gramps and I|
I like going through the photo albums every now and then and I found this picture of my Grandfather and I playing Hungry, Hungry Hippos. I don’t know why there’s a dog collar around my waist.
SGU V-Day was featured in the Grenada Advocate newspaper just in time for International Women’s Day. My first newspaper piece in several years. It felt great seeing my name next to an article in the newspaper. 🙂
