From Breadcrumbs to Toast

I have not heard from Basherter since I laid into him in March. Perhaps he finally understands my position — when I’m done, I done. I had told this to him before we stopped speaking, but I suppose he never thought it would apply to him. After all, while unsaid for much of our friendship, I was madly in love with him. But no more. I knocked that out of my system like a bad cold. Besides getting rid of Basherter, as bonus, I’ve also gotten rid of his friend who continually phoned me to chitchat. This guy wasn’t much […]

Breadcrumbs

This past Wednesday was the 21st anniversary of my mother’s death. I know people say that it gets easier as the years go on, but for me it hasn’t– perhaps because our family unit hasn’t really recovered. To be exact, I am not on speaking terms with my younger sister. I made the decision a few years ago to distant myself from all her drama. Heck, to be honest, its one of the reasons I left Chicago. I just didn’t know how to be supportive without continually having to rescue her every time she got herself into a difficult situation. […]

We Ready For The Road

Basherter cultivated my musical tastes. Specifically, he introduced me to a lot of different soca artistes. One of my favorites is Bunji Garlin who is now getting a lot of praise for his song: Differentology which was one of the biggest anthems throughout the Caribbean Carnival season and is now making a major impact in North America. I say that as it actually won a Soul Train Award for Best International Performance and now has been named the MTV IGGY Song of the Year. So how awesome for Bunji and soca music in general.

Turning Tables

Saying goodbye to Basherter took incredible strength and there are days when I just want to cave and reach out to him and take it all back. You know, be friends with him on his terms. But I stand firm because really, what has he got to offer me but more heartache? I love him with all my heart and he loves me back but in a confused sort of way that just brings heartache. So as Adele sings “time to turn the tables and not let him close enough to hurt me.”

The Long Goodbye

So despite the best of intentions, it’s been another few months since I’ve posted here. So what’s new? Well work is quite busy. In fact, it’s really stressful and there are many days I wonder what the heck I got myself into. Sometimes I feel like I’m back in the city which is definitely not what I had planned. There is so much pressure to deliver its unreal. So how long will I stick with it? In all honesty, I don’t know. To get myself through it all, I’ve set milestones but I really do just take each day as […]
