My Topsy Turvy World
September 11, 2006
Sorry for not posting anything over the weekend. But I figured since hardly anyone reads this it wouldn’t be missed. (I’m feeling a little sorry for myself, I know). Well, I’ve been tired pretty much every day since I started my new job last week Wednesday. Those of you that wake up early every morning are probably wondering why I’m making such a big fuss. But for me, it’s been a major adjustment. The first couple days were real rough. I couldn’t fall asleep for nothing. I just lay in bed, nervous, thinking about how this new job would change my life, unable to quiet the noises in my head. And, after day four, it’s still sort of that way. Plus, I’m a night person. I love working on things until after midnight. With my former schedule, I could do that and wake up whenever I felt like. The only downside to that was that I would have to rush to get some things done like go to the post office or send work- or trinidadjunction-related emails. Anyway, I’m still working on my Dance in Trinidad series. I’m compiling a list of dancers/dance teachers/dance companies and after that I’ll try to reach out to them and ask politely if they’d mind being interviewed. It’s harder than I thought since time has become more of an issue for me. Anyway folks, I know this is late, but here’s a picture from the 2006 West Indian Day Parade in Brooklyn, New York. It’s our first Trinidad Junction street team photo. Like it? I made the t-shirts myself, although I was disappointed that you couldn’t really see the Trinidad Junction too well. I guess that’s what you get when you use iron-ons!
Oh yeah, and I want to thank Simone and Marl for being brave and posting something in the forums.
