So after a very very very long day at work, I decided to head home instead of going jogging like I had planned to. The only thing is I had forgotten that today, PNP, the ruling party, was scheduled to have a rally in the nearest town to my home. This is where my misery started.
I stood at a taxi stand for almost an hour. Now this is a taxi stand where I’m used to taxis waiting on me, not the other way around! On a side note, I saw a friend I haven’t seen in quite a while and we had a lovely chat even if she harassed my person upon seeing me. Anyways back to my problems. I took the bus, something I haven’t done since I finished university in May. I wasn’t even sure how much was the fare. The bus was packed like a sardine tin but I still managed to squeeze my slender behind in. In the bus, I was continually stepped on and jostled. Man, I’m just not used to that life.
My misery worsened when upon reaching 15 mins away from home, the bus came upon traffic and an army of PNP supporters in full supportive mode; noise and all! Much to my misery, I had forgotten that the PNP leader’s constituency office is just 15 mins away from paradise (my home). The bus literally stood still then crawled and stood still again…. 10 minutes from my home I got my slim behind off the bus and started trekking. As is a testament of this diatribe, I waded through the sea of orange and the blaring of the blow horns and I made it home.
I can’t tell you the last time I was so glad to be home. I’m not putting my behind through the door for the remainder of the evening. Anyways, I hope you had a better day than I did. If you are in Jamaica, keep safe in this craziness.
Love you loveys!

My all-time favourite thing to do is gaining discoveries by design from My Father during our time each day. Reading, learning and trying new things falls behind in a close second place. My dream is to use my God-given talents to positively impact as many people as possible.
