My interest and insights have changed over the years, things are not what they used to be, things are not what they really seem to be, life is much more than what we perceive it to be, my blog is my attempt to understand and share some of my thoughts that are expressible. Happily married, mother of two amazing little people...

CAREER DAY
University of Guyana (UG), 2007




Wow, what a day it was....

Career day at UG, is a day set aside for kids in high school to come and see what UG have to offer, in other words, trying to help them to choose a career that is of interest to them, explaining to them what it is all about, what UG expects of them, what they can possibily do in the future, scopes and opportunities for further studies, etc, etc..
Well this year it was a competition among faculty, competing for the Registrar trophy and a whole lot of other prices.... My faculty ( Health Sciences) choose to wear red and black and of course complimented with the lab coats... boy we sure did looked like professionals....
The day went on with us talking to curious students and teachers and anyone else who wanted to know more about being a pharmacist, and by the end of the day, ive had it with talking one thing over and over, and yes even my leg gived up lol
Anyways the good thing that came out of that day was that I really knew what I wanted to be, I feel happy knowing that this is what I want, you know talking to people about it makes me feel, hey this is it, and there is absolutely nothing else in the world ill want to be....
BTW im still not sure who won, as soon as I do know ill let you know, of course all indications showed Health Sciences will win, because we showed alot more sings of preparation, we were more uniform, and i think we did bring out what was essential to convince students of their career choices...
We had most of the students attracted to our faculty as well, because almost every singe one of them wanted to see the "dead man", thats preserved for studies in Medicine... What an attraction that was!!!!
The picture above shows a set of soon to be pharmacists, minutes before the actual expo started....

The city's gone crazy...

It was so lovely, everyone in red and white, it was packed downtown.. reminds me of what it looks like christmas time...and yes not only because it was Valentines day, but Guyanese sure is having a treat today...
Tonight is the launching of a very new phone company in Guyana "Digicel".
Digicel is very popular around the Caribbean, so this means GT&T is not alone anymore. Its truly amazing to see how fast digicel is taking over Guyana, you can actually have a cell phone for just $5 US. WOW!! Talk about competition!!! So much more new features, cheaper rates, and a whole lot more....
Almost every single vehicle had a red and white digicel flag.. and thats not all!! The one and only AKON and TOK is here tonight for the launching, and its absolutely free to go to the show/launching once you have a ticket, that you can collect when you buy anything from Digicel...Talk about the city going crazy....This is so much like a national event...
Its good to see people so much into things, it brings out what our motto truly said...and with the world cup cricket only few days away... one can only imagine what will happen around here...
Anyways I went to the city mall this morning.. AKON was schedule to be there 9 30 am...Loads of people where flocked there from as early as 7 30 am... He had a red carpet welcome and boy it was all fun...
Now as AKON will say "Smack that" lol, no more take what you have service from GT&T...With digicel, expect more, get more...
No wonder the city's gone crazy.

Here is a link to listen to Akon's music online...
Enjoy.....

Poem to Ponder

Dear God, forgive me...

Today upon a bus
I saw a girl with golden hair
And wished I was as fair.
When suddenly she rose to leave,
I saw her hobble down the aisle.
She had one leg and wore a crutch,
But as she passed, a smile.
Dear God, forgive me when I whine,
I have two legs the world is mine.

I stopped to buy some candy.
The lad who sold it to me had such charm.
I talked with him, he seems so glad;
If I were late, it'd do no harm;
And as I left, he said to me:
"I thank you, you've been so kind.
Its so nice to talk with folks like you.
You see, "he said, "Im blind."
Dear God forgive me when I whine,
I have two eyes, the world is mine.

Later while walking down the street
I saw a child with eyes of blue.
He stood and watched the others play.
He did not know what to do.
I stopped a moment and then I said:
"Why dont you join the others, dear?"
He looked ahead without a word.
And then I knew he couldn't hear.
Dear God forgive me when I whine.

With feet to take me where I'd go.
With eyes to see the sunset's glow.
With ears to hear what I'd know.
Dear God forgive me when I whine.
Im blessed indeed, the world is mine.

Ramblings....

Ive had pretty much a roller coaster week, one minute im right up in the clouds, and the next im flat on my face.. Does anyone know how that feels? Its very frustrating..
You know they would say, behind every cloud there is a silver lining..I dont really know how true that is, but from all that had happened this week, I pretty much learnt that I am the only one who can make myself happy. I have depended for too long on people to make my day, and to make me happy, when truly I am the only one who can make me happy... I think I let the stuff people around me do, get to me and it really does have an effect on me...ive learnt that Im the only one who can really take charge of my life, my happiness and my sorrow depend entirely on ME..
I will let this post remind me everytime that im the only one who have control over my life and my emotions, whatever others around me does, it still only depend on ME
