Last week I had my first experience vacationing on a cruise. The whole family, including my fiancé, took a Carnival Cruise down to Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay, and Freeport, Bahamas. So yup I have been absent again but with good reason… the internet access was terrible! We paid seventy something dollars and couldn’t get pages to load all week. I kid… it was for the best because well… vacation! Here is a breakdown of how it all went down plus pictures. Continue reading

I have emerged from my vacation realizing that I need to seriously stop thinking I can do these blogging challenges. Let’s face it I set myself up to fail every single time. Problem is that I feel these challenges stunt my ability to blog. I stress myself out trying to keep on schedule and I feel as though I’m forcing out posts just to satisfy the challenge. I feel like I haven’t written anything all that great recently so I’m going to stop forcing challenges and just blog with the flow. My brain just doesn’t want to work that way. I like to be all over the place. It makes me interesting! Least I think so.
Anyway I am finally able to take some time to myself and jot down a few words for you. I spent last week on our annual trip to Las Vegas and then went for a road trip to the Grand Canyon. I had a lot more work to do this time around in Vegas so there are not many pictures but I will write on that later.
Y’all let me tell you if you haven’t been try try try to get to the Grand Canyon. It is absolutely breathtaking. I took soooo many photos because the beauty of it keeps changing with each viewing location, passing cloud, and movement of the sun across the sky. I never in my life felt so small and being a bigger girl that is a rarity. Normally I feel extra big… especially on anything transportation related.
We spent two days viewing as much of the Canyon as possible. We saw so much of it and yet nothing at all. It is that big! My goal or wish is that someday I can get myself in enough shape to actually hike down into the Canyon. Going down is the easy part it is the upward hike that I am most concerned about!
Mother Nature is so beautiful and amazing. She is truly the master sculpture and deserves our respect.
Below is just a small sampling of the pictures that I took.
My apologies I know I have been a pretty shitty blogger as of late. The reason for this is I was taking a website coding class in June and currently a public library law class that ends August 15th. I haven’t done school since 2013 so I was getting my study legs under me. The classes are online which is a whole other animal than having to attend in person. You really have to be self-regulating. I got an A in the first one and I am hoping for the same results in the second. Rest assured I have a few drafts pending that I will be posting this week. Topics such as bariatric surgery, being plus-sized at the beach, anonymity of the internet, insecurities, and open ex letters! However, today I want to discuss my foray into wannabe modeling!

The following passage is from the article New York City Welcomed Record 58.3 Million Visitors in 2015
NYC & Company President and CEO Fred Dixon reported that New York City’s total of 58.3 million visitors last year was 1.8 million more than 2014, with the overall estimate consisting of 46 million domestic and 12.3 million international travelers…
Not only did New York City break its all-time visitors record in 2015, but the domestic and international travelers numbers also broke their respective previous records.
Marathon challenge day 2. I chose a photo I took of myself from right after my “blackout period” when I was living with my aunt. In my head I swear I thought I was smiling but alas I just look tired. I always looked so tired. Probably because I hardly ever slept. The years of playing the role of indentured servitude granted me the accessory of dark circles and a sunken expression. Sleep was hard to come by and it showed. Continue reading
