Burnt popcorn, burnt arm, burnt counter.

Three burns in the process of trying to save a cup from smashing on the floor. I’m up to three cups of coffee a day. It has been gently suggested to me that three cups a day is not good.

From Wikipedia’s Stages of Change:

precontemplation: people are not intending to take action in the forseeable future and are unaware that their behaviour is problematic.

contemplation: People are beginning to recognize that their behaviour is problematic and begin looking at pros and cons of their actions.

But I neeeeeed it…

It may be cold but there is snow on the ground and the people feel so normal.

I’ve moved to Brooklyn for clinicals. Can’t complain.

Last seen in Grand Anse

6 May

A classmate once described Grand Anse beach as “Peanut butter and jelly” type of beach. Even though it’s the most well-known and most frequented, it’s still my favourite. No other beach I’ve been to can beat it’s clear waters!

I’ve been swimming there since coming to the island, but this last week I saw some pretty cool things.

 

Like a Moray Eel, sticking it’s head out from a hollow rock. It’s jaws were open and it looked freaky. Those eyes! Leah dove down for a closer look and I was scared it would chomp on her. But it just shut it’s mouth and tucked back into the rock.

National Geographic

 

A tiny jellyfish, clear but outlined in purple-pink. I couldn’t find a similar picture so here’s my artists’ rendition. It was jiggling away, the mushroom top part of it fattening and flattening as it squiggled through the water. I looked up to tell Leah but when I looked back down I couldn’t find it.

When I learned how to scuba dive, my instructor Ricardo picked one of these up off the seafloor to show me. It felt firmer than I expected, and the size and shape of it made me want to throw it like a football through the water. They’re basically just a gut tube!
