My ‘To-Do’ List for Life

In the spirit of magazines and shows that create list of things you should do, know, accomplish by a certain age. My own tendency to create plans or verbilise my dreams etc etc I’ve decided to create a list of things I must do.

  1. A full Year of Living Pretty – I need to do the high maintenance, girly girl, immaculate appearance thing. I love fashion and make-up but I’m usually too lazy to commit. Maybe I need to jump in the deep end. I need to do a full year of being fancy.
  2. Write and submit an application to do my PhD. I have these thoughts in my head for a study. It’s obvious that there’s a lot of room for study on and about the Caribbean. Plus I really love doing research. There might be something there for me to do.
  3. Do a mini-triathlon. I started, but never finished the training for a mini-tri a few years back. Now, I feel like I need to. Besides the cross-training is really good for you. You’re less likely to hurt yourself.
  4. Learn to DJ; using vinyl. Daddy has lots of old records and I love their sound. The more we move towards digitization, everyone and their father is a DJ. Damn you Apple! 
  5. Become fluent in Spanish!
  6. Read the Bible.
  7. Read a book a week for an entire year. Otherwise known as the 50 books a year challenge.

This should be a fun ride.

High Heel Health

I love high heels, but those suckers are really hard to love. There’s no question that their look good on and off, but they hurt like the dickens.

I usually save my really high heels for events where I won’t be standing a lot. Obviously I’ll be driving there, so I don’t have to worry about public transport. If I haven’t worn heels in a while I would practice by wearing them around the house in the days leading up to the event. Oh and some Dr. Scholl’s gel inserts are a necessity.

I watched the show The Doctors this week and I’m so on-board with this. Here I go with balance training and ab workouts.

I’ll be looking into this whole Catwalk Confidence thing. It might be an investment.

About the Rihanna/ Chris Brown Tragedy

I had no intentions of commenting about this, because it’s such a sensitive issue, and it must be done with justice. But then I found this via Jezebel (of course), and I had to share it with you.

It’s political cartoonist Kevin Moore addressing the issue with sense. I couldn’t have said it better myself.

Ain’t Karma a Bitch

Last week the Express sought it fit to  scandalise CNMG. Well because of CL Financial’s situation the tables have turned, and the Guardian saw it fit to return the favour.
Take dat in yuh pweffim!

50 Books in 2009: January Update

Ok I finished “Love in a Time of Cholera,” liked it.

And Fahrenheit 451, liked it a little less, but valued it a little more.

Now I’m making my way through “Portrait of a Lady”  by Henry James, which should be good.

Stay tuned for my reviews of the books I read.
