Our website for now is Facebook and…Continue

It's been a while since my last blog post but rest assured, I have not forgotten about my duties to myself. Since I've been back home, life has not gotten easier but I'm now able to have the perfect outlook on things. I've been listening without wanting to respond. I've been living in the moment and not over thinking it. Which, if you know me, know its quite hard to do. I've ceased the use of a thousand words to say one feeling. I've limited myself to less words but yet more meaning. I'm not…Continue

My visit to Ford’s Theatre
It was a cold (I’m from the tropics!) Thursday morning and the government had just opened up on that very eve! However, I put on my jacket and proceeded on my journey in the oil barge. Little did I know, I was going to watch a matinee show on the famous Laramie Project.
The Laramie Project is about the hate crime that was committed against twenty one year old Matthew Shepard in Laramie Wyoming, USA. Hate crime, because…Continue

As you may already know, my internal project was to work on my voice. As I debated on my external project, I thought about working on my voice in my external project as well! I decided I would go though with the idea of giving a presentation at school. After speaking with the director of the school, he came up with the idea of having me speak to the student body during an assembly. The upcoming week I will be having lunch with a few teachers that will be assisting me in preparation for…Continue
