Almost There… Yet This Darn CrossRoads

Is the Cup Half-Empty or Half-Full?

So it is April. It is the last month of school (EEP!!). Writing it out is even more scary than saying it out loud. With that there comes a ton of extra stress.Assignments are left to be completed, the job search is underway, the competition is on, thoughts of graduation,and Oh Dear God! I am freaking out. Less than a month left and the anticipation is killing me. Urghh!!

R.I.P. Aunt Laura
This morning I started my day off pretty darn nice. I took a couple of breathers but I still feel stressed. Yes, not to mention the death of one of my most favorite persons ….Aunt Laura ( May Your Soul R.I.P.) I had a pretty sketchy March. It was sulky, there were deaths, winter refused to end. But I had done some fasting; reflect more of life some more. That, my friends was a good thing.It seems as if no matter how you may have it together being assured (of anything really) is always ideal.

It is Spring!

“Life is a journey, not a destination.” It is gonna be tough as hell…..sometimes you take one step forward and it feels as if yah have been kicked like 10 steps back. Oh well, the good news is; It is Spring!! Well, not the best news(especially if reside in Canada), but the stipulation of that is summer is on the way! You live to learn and it is one step at a time.

Three more weeks….Let’s do this!

Childhood On Trial”

By Ashley “Chula” Jenelle

It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men” – Frederick Douglass

One mistake – and labeled for life.

The cries from a cold cell are just echoes of pain from a child’s heart. The urge to be understood and loved unconditionally are just simple requirements these children request. These children starve for attention but constantly feel hopeless behind barbed wires. Feelings of abandonment are quickly vanished when society rejects a child and stamps a label that reads “useless, stupid, monster, or crazy”. A child’s brain is still at that stage where they soak up information like a sponge. In result, that child will not only live up to that label, but they will accept it. When these children act out but truly want help, they’re punished and sent to a cell. If a child has been neglected…

about the IMF and how it’s nothing new… and me and you a part a di problem

mooretalkja

so,

as you may or may not know Jamaica is about the enter Tax Armageddon as a part of a)trying to ‘save’ the country and b)the IMF  ‘deal’ that we may or may not get.

I use the quotation marks to imply the highest levels of shade possible and I hope they are read just like that. I am not an economist, but I have done a bit of reading on the IMF and Jamaican’s economic history, either way i’m  not speaking as an economist, i’m speaking as a Jamaican.

IMF is the modern day incarnation of babylon and yet another imperialist mission into the countries of the Third World. Very few countries that sign IMF deals ever get out of them and stay out of them.
