33 Things You May Not Know About Me

happy people

How are you today? I do sincerely hope that all is well. This month of August is my birthday month, as well as my daughter’s. She’ll be turning 9, yeah! And I will be turning 33 years old. So as a fun celebration of making it through life to see my 33rd year (hopefully). I’d like to celebrate this month with a series of 33 themed post. Starting with this one, 33 things you may not know about me.

I really appreciate you clicking on this post, I’m quite honored that you are interested in learning something new about me. I would very much love it, if you would let me know if we have anything here in common or just something about you in general. Seriously, you’d make my day.

So here I go.

16.) I later published and sold 2 issues of my very own magazine called “BajeYout” which wrote on topics that related to Barbados youth

27.) I try to hide my tears from others when movies or commercials make me cry

33.) I want to be authentically me

Thanks for getting to know me.

Drop me a line at [email protected], if you would like to send me “happy birthday mail.” I love happy mail, it truly makes my day. I love postcards, greeting cards, penpal letters, souvenirs, local handmade or homemade (made by you) things. I love getting to know about the lives and hometowns of others. (Just sharing what I like, not begging for stuff). Happy Birthday mail would truly be a blessing to me, especially at this season of my life where I could use a little extra prayer and encouragement.

    Glad to have gotten to know you more. You have been through much but have accomplished much too. I understand about becoming more fearless – I wrote in my first days of blogging a post Go Fearless http://grammietime2.blogspot.com/2015/01/go-fearless.html you might be interested in reading. It was my third post entering into the blogging world. Anyways, I like Helen Steiner Rice poems too, she is a beautiful writer of words. Enjoy your weekend.

    24-26 are exactly me, too. How exciting to have published your own works! I haven’t written anything in a long time, and I am heading over to your poetry blog now :)

    I love this! I always love getting to know more about the people behind the blogs I read. ;) You certainly have accomplished a lot so far. I too, am afraid of heights and of falling. I tried indoor rock climbing to try and conquer this fear. In all honesty, though, it just left me clinging to the side of the wall trying not to hyperventilate when I got too high. Hopefully, I can raise my children to be less of a chicken than I am. Thank you for sharing.
