Born June 10, 1974 in Kingston, Jamaica. Grew up in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. I have three older brothers and a younger sister.
Sports--I play squash, football (soccer), and willing to try a little of everything else (just say I like to humour myself).
Gee, I sooooo active !
I'm not really weird like people say...and I'm not in denial. Here's the thing: why is it okay for others (like my friends) to be who they are and express themselves to the far reaching ends of the earth (however ridiculous they might appear, without me questioning them) and how is it not okay (in the judgement of my friends in their perfect world) for ME to be myself, however ridiculous my acts and thoughts may seem... At the end of the day, this question gives me too much stress. I have resolved that people's opinions belong to them and whether I wish to accept what they are "so willing" to share with me is up to me. Even if I said "yes" or agreed to "change" in a manner that each person suggested, there will always be some other individual or group that will recommend to me some other way to "act" or "behave." I cannot possibly please everybody, so I try to please myself..
How much do we actually OWE other people for who we are anyway? How much and why should you have to prove anything to anyone, just to exist without interruption in this world? The world is such a selfish place and each person wants you to live to their standards. What do I have to say about that..."WHAT EVER!" I don't need to be "approved" by anyone. In twenty years, we'll realise that this life is what we make of it, we won't give a sh_t about what people say, and just live our lives (the last few remaining years)...so, why not just live life now... and not give a sh_t (without offending anyone)
Bond ? not exactly what you were expecting:
"Experience is not what happens to a man...it's what a man does with what happens to him."
Here's the deal: just chill. That phrase "there is someone for everyone" is true...It's just that some people get lucky at an early stage. The rest of us are either playing the field, just having fun or dedicated in a search for the right person. Wherever you are, you might find that the solution to your happiness is to just "chill."
"Chillin'" doesn't mean that you accept that you're a jerk and you can't get anyone... it means spending five minutes to think about what you really want from your life...what would make you happy. Then think about this: whatever you do do right now, right this minute, has no bearing on what is going to happen in the next five minutes. You could walk out of the subway station and some crazy taxi driver knocks you over after he doesn't see the green light on the pedestrian crossing. Or, alternatively, you may bump into who you later find out to be a nice person, while on your way to run some errands. That's just it. We don't know how much time we have, we don't know when a thing is going to happen. So live NOW, explore the world as it is. Squeeze the experience out of life. Listening to other people's comments is one thing. Making a decision for ourselves in our best interest is another, and possibly more important thing. We have a choice to decide whether to take something into our system or not, whether to base our final analysis on "this" or "that." Our end result should be...whatever we deem to make us more fruitful, positive...give us a good vibration. Our vibes will bring everthing to us...that's real.
Bob Marley, Beres Hammond, Sanchez, Phil Collins, Dido, Sade, Babyface, Janet Jackson, Gloria Estefan, Red Rat, Busta Rhymes, Natalie Imbruglia, Marcy Playground, Angel Grant...the beat goes on. Personally, I don't like to hear the same song on the radio 10 times per day--no matter how popular the group is.
Attended Cayman Islands High School. Graduated from Stetson University in May, 1997 with an Accounting degree. Qualified as a certfied public accountant (CPA). I studied for the CPA exam in Atlanta, Georgia for about six weeks. Like all dreaded exams, the studying part was a little more difficult than I anticipated. The exam, however, and I can safely say now, is not as hard as I expected.
After two years of "general education requirements" in college, I got kinda bored and started to develop a short attention span. OOh. Violation! Poor me, I am to blame for still having achieved. my main attention span in college: feminine works of art. These were the popular things. Going to class was something I did when I wasn't trying to figure out life. The world puts so much emphasis on getting an "A" instead of learning how to live and feeling good about yourself.
I worked for two and a half years with an accounting firm. Admittedly I went in with the afterburners on. I wanted to take off. I wanted to be this, I wanted to be that. I wanted to be as far away from the poverty I saw on TV and as close to society and it's high expectations of me. I wanted to sit in the executive chair and casually "blow my own horn" to friends while engaged in private (or sometimes gossip driven) conversation. But then I found out that it's not all bout that. And it's not all about "this." It's about...whatever. Work is filled with paper pushers (the people) and staple removers (the same people) and people who talk about them.
I soon learned that accounting was not where I wanted to be. The level of my happiness determined that. I have decided that if there is to be any sweat and blood, I am gonna sweat and I am gonna bleed, on my own terms. I soon joined a law firm and after some time , I decided to pursue the profession.
Law is turning out to be an interesting second qualification. With my professional exams now complete, I have to work for 18 months to be formally called to the Bar. Let's see what happens...
What can you tell me about yourself ?
