There are several of these old sugar cane mills in different levels of decay and ruin all around the Caribbean, as they…

It’s 0430, still dark out, and yet Queen Nefertiti of the Apartment, Nia, has decided in her infinite feline wisdom to be my alarm clock for the day, demanding her bipedal female pleb come turn her tap on for water sips and slurps. Try as I might, I’m unable to find…

Originally posted 2016-04-22 12:39:46. Today, April 22, 2016, at approximately 0730ECT (Eastern Caribbean Time), I had my first official “I’m swimming in an ocean!” moment. See, my virtual identity – The clumsypixie – isn’t just a cute, whimsically chosen name for Minecraft. It literally describes me in more than just two words smushed together. It…

Originally posted 2016-04-15 14:37:17. Today was the first of probably many to come of not having internet on the island. Though I did pop online briefly at the boy’s work to send a couple of group “don’t worry messages”, I will say it wasn’t bothersome. For now. I do hope that it gets into a…

Sadly, this past week, only 1h22m was devoted to animation of any kind, and alas, no forts were made. But… I did manage to learn a few other things in…

Originally posted 2015-12-14 14:56:07. I’m excited. I’m going to try to contain my level of excitement for the moment, because you need the proper introduction and explanation. I, and several others, want to shout it from the rooftops. Let me back up, and start properly. I’m jumping into the midst of things, and I’m bound…

Technically, the walk I showed off in last week’s review (of 16,000+ steps to Central Park) was the start of this week, but I wanted to focus on something different for this one. Not only am I changing my physical, but I’ve mentioned that I am altering my entire lifestyle. That…

Originally posted 2015-08-05 13:54:49. I hate crowds. I mean, full on Feralpixie when I’m near more than say, ten people at once. I might seem very gregarious and even social butterfly online, and even in extremely intimate settings, but more than three people, and unless I’m familiar with the others in a very relaxed setting,…

Originally posted 2015-07-27 23:57:20. I’ve wanted a charm bracelet tattoo for decades now. There were always certain ‘charms’ that I was sure I wanted – the T.A.R.D.I.S., a daisy, a book, and a butterfly, and a few others, though there were several – roughly five – that were always in flux. Last year, whilst in…

She wants to do a few more questions in a few of weeks as well, to see what’s changed. I did record the actual skype chat…

Originally posted 2015-06-27 15:22:19. What did I learn in Week 4? Well, it’s the entire thing. Just keep walking.   I wore crocs for over eight years. I have NEVER liked the feel of shoes on my feet. I used to live on the outskirts of a small town that had a single flashing yield…

Originally posted 2015-06-20 14:29:47. Most (though there will be several that wish to add other categories, I am stating “MOST”) people who are obese fall into one of three main categories: genetic, traumatic health change, or simply bad choices. Since I’m really not capable of laying blame on a genetic level due to lack of…

There’s a part in the movie Dogma, where Ben and Matt are talking to one another about the fact that supposedly Ben’s character (Loki) loves going to the airport to watch people reunite, when in all actuality, he goes to see how awkward the reconnections are after dalliances and situations take place before the person…

Oh my stars, it’s been a long week. I realise it’s Tuesday, but I’m talking from last Tuesday till now, it’s been… eventful. So I’m gonna break down the days as best possible, but I will say this actual week so far has finally been a bit slower paced and that’s good. Tuesday Jun 27…
