School Days

Whether or not you want to believe it, the summer holiday is over and in a few days schools will be in full session.
I know that in some countries outside of Jamaica schools have already started, but come next week schools here will oficially get on the way with orientation and such.
Every school year comes with high expectations. As parents, facilitators and students, we have to be focus, prepared and be ready to meet and overcome the challenges and expectations that lies ahead.

So for the new school year,whether you are in high school or university here are a few pointers to keep in mind
1. Stay focus: remember why you are in school and what you want to achieve while you are there. Work smater in achieving your goals

2. Time management: Manage your time wisely, make a plan when to study, when to submit assigments and stick to it. Figure out what strategy works best for you and use to it.

3: Classes: Be careful when choosing your subjects, make sure that are align with your career path and not just because your friends are doing it. Make sure you attend classes on a regular basis and never be afraid of going to your advisor for guidance,

All the best for the new school term.

Until next time
Love yourself and do some good

We stoppped at this restaurant, its fairly new and the scenery is just beautiful. Its built overlooking the sea, its cool, quiet and just heavenly.

The gushing water from this fall or any waterfall is a must for cooling down.

Noone can ignore a cold drink on a hot day/night. Drink of your choice with lots of ice, perfect.

  I took these pictures at work; its Friday and we are allowed to be casual hence the casualness.
The weather has been good, its has been raining on and off which keeps the place cool all day long and i love that. The grass is greener and everything just look fresh and alive.

Be true to who you are

Ever wonder why some people you know are so happy, content and the universe seems as if its always smiling at them. More than often, these people are just true to who they are. They are thankful, they give  to the needy and they accept their current situations while working towards a better one.

Over the Easter, on Easter Monday to be exact i went to a friend funeral. She had battled cancer for 10 years. It was  a sad occasion but we (friends) were glad we were there for her during those trying times and know she was at rest.

I took these photos afterwards when i went to visit a district for the first. I love the background

Red is the color of extremes, love, passion, danger and adventure. It is one of my favorite color as it brightens and attracts. Its can be worn with many other color/ shades. Here i pair it with brown/khaki.
