It’s A Celebration, CARIBMASK!

Raleigh, North Carolina, has its very own Caribbean festival, CaribMask, which is going on its 7th year!

The festival celebrates the Caribbean culture through food, dance, music, art and a lot more. This year the festival started on August 22, 2018 and ended August 26, 2018.

What’s In My Travel Bag

When traveling I tend to put so much junk into my bag because I always think when I don’t pack something I am going to need it.

Thursday Thoughts: Time

While at work today one of my employees said something that placed me into thought. We were talking about life and how much free time we actually have. She mentioned to another manager and me that as full time workers in retail our schedules are all over the place and we don’t have a great deal time to enjoy things
or have a set schedule. Her words made me think about the things I love to do and how much time I actually have to do them. She is right, I don’t have much time as I would love to have in order to travel, write, volunteer, mentor and spend time with family and friends, all things I love. I realized that my free time is built around my work schedule. 
Its 2014 and I am going to work hard in order to create self time for myself and take pleasure in the things in life I love to do. I may be tired when I get off work but I am going to make sure to stop and take a view of the things around me.
