history in the making....
Tuesday mid-day during the rainy day, as I munched on corn on the cob for lunch -- I found myself moved by this...
Courvoisier Mondays: Straight from the islands, I am a young lady making her life in the United States. I strive for knowledge, innovation and perfection in this world; though I’m keenly aware no one is perfect…not even me. I enjoy the simple and exquisite things in life. I believe every life has a purpose and I am eager to fulfill mine.
Amaretto Tuesdays: As a twenty-something I’ve got challenges, hopes, fears and debt. Currently “I don’t know” is the perfect response to all questions about when I’ll be married and what I want to do with my life. These are my attempts to make some of life’s sour spots tasty!
Bellini Wednesdays: I am your renaissance woman – have been places, and seen a few things, and yet heard some more. Well, what I can say – I generally have an opinion about everything and you my friend are privy to hear it all.
Mint Julep Thursdays:
Culture, they say, is a two-way street/Hand me my mint julep, mammy./Hurry up!/Make haste!
--Langston Hughes, Cultural Exchange
that's me...back and forth i go down the way of the wicked and the just...rushing through my 20's...full of angst and uncertainty. longing for the past yet meticulously planning out my future and on the daily trying to slow down and enjoy the present. mint julep is sugar, water, mint & bourbon -- sweet, languid, fresh & strong. i'm easily distracted and in need of constant stimulation, painfully detached from reality, dreamy on occasion and oftentimes neglectful and lazy without purposefully meaning to be. so you'll get all of that and then some from me...hurry up and come get some...
Rum Punch Fridays: I work. I church. I date. (sometimes) I hit Happy Hours. I people watch. I talk ish about the people I watch. I write stories, cause I'm trying to find that spot off in the light, that light off in the spot. I randomly quote Outkast lyrics. I fall down. I get back up. I contradict myself. I act a fool. I laugh. I tell a few jokes. I love hard. I live and I learn. I dream in the daytime. And I chronicle it all here. Take a sip and enjoy the freshest place to be on Fridays.
