Three Things About ME.

  1. I’m a HUGE pop culture enthusiast. I keep with all of the current pop culture news and I’m a huge movie, music and novel lover. Most people who know me know that I keep up with all of the latest music, movies and entertainment. I also take recommendations for music, movies and books so if you have any for me just let me know!
  2. I am FOODIE. I love all kinds of foods and I’m down for trying anything(well at least 90%, 100? Well……..let’s just say I’m getting there). One of my favorite ways to learn about different cultures is through trying different kinds of food.  I take pride in the fact that I come from a Caribbean background and the food is so diverse! Food in general is just so complex, rich and diverse!
  3. Self-expression is the biggest form of therapy for me. My art is my safe space. In my safe space, I feel like I can express myself fully without any shame.  My blog is called shelikes2write because writing is my art and it literally makes me so happy. Writing gets me through good and bad times.

Answers to Rad Gamer’s Questions:

  1. What made you start blogging? In my freshman year of college, we had a project where one of our assignments was to start a blog(it’s not this one and I can’t find that one LOL)  and initially it scared me because I didn’t want my work out there and I thought the fact that we had to start a blog was a little out there to say the least………………………………. When I began work on the blog, I changed my mind, I LOVED IT. I loved formatting things, creating my own pages, and just the idea of ownership over my own space; a space where I could create anything I wanted. A summer later, out of boredom I came back to the idea of starting a blog because I wanted to get my work out there and I wanted my writing to connect with people. I also wanted a space where I could use my writing for my own healing and as a way to help others heal as well.
  2. Write a message that you would like to give to you past self. Some of the same things you hate about yourself now are the same things you will love about yourself in the future.
  3. What do you do when you are discouraged? I pause. I pause and I do things that will make me feel better in the moment and that can include sleeping, reading(something funny or inspirational), praying, talking to someone I trust, WRITING, listening to something inspirational or watching a funny video.
  4. What does success mean to you? Happiness. You can have all the money and accolades in the world but if you’re not happy then what’s the point?
  5. Describe life in one line. A messy and beautiful rollercoaster.
