UWI Got Me Like

Confession: I looove working at UWI. It's a part-time gig, meaning I make my own hours. I have a great rapport with my boss. The work is challenging and rewarding. I can stroll to my classes on Mondays and Thursdays. I have an air-conditioned office with really fast Internet access and an abundance of stationery. I have my own key for the staff bathroom, which has hand-soap and paper towels, and is always open. Life is good at UWI.

Midterms, presentations, assignments, the oral exam, the quiz, Love & Friendship Day

“Allow the ebb, and ride the flow!”

My undergrad thesis adviser turned life coach has spoken to me on many an occasion about the ebb and flow of life. She believes that we go through seasons; the high season is a time for work, the low is a time of rest. She stresses the importance of enjoying both seasons for what they are, without complaining.

Why I Write

"I write because I must. It's not a choice or a pastime, it's an unyielding passion and my calling"- Elizabeth Reyes

Hello and Happy Easter!

One day, I was enjoying a currants roll during a class break when a former classmate from my days as a Spanish undergrad came up to me. We exchanged pleasantries and got to talking. Eventually, she asked how I was doing, which is code for “ah want to mind yuh business”.
