    Thank you for giving such an in depth critique of this app. I have it on my Noook HD+ and I have often questioned whether or not it was worth using yet never used it or navigated it to make a decision. I currently use Springpad and it has a similiar function. Give it a try and see which one you prefer. I’m going to give Evernote a try!!!!

    I’m glad you life it! I try quite a bit of apps and this one is a must try. I was having a conversation with a colleague who said that he was working on being more productive and asked if I heard of Evernote…ha! He mentioned another app that I started using the same time as Evernote and that review is coming soon. I will check out Springpad and see how it matches up.

Not long after arriving, my cousin came running to say my dad had just arrived. Lawd Jesus wah mi a go do now!!! We ducked down and prayed he didn’t see us. Only to find out my cousin got spotted and ratted us out. We got lined up and marched out infront of everyone at Pier 1. Lawd thank heavens no one remembers that.

    Hahahahaha. I can imagine her face now. West Indian mothers have no filter when it comes to discipline. They will embarrass you with ease if you defy them no matter how great of a kid you are.They will leave no margin for parenting error. It’s amazing how well we turned out as a result of our parents not having a chill button. I know my mother didn’t and still doesn’t have an off switch.

You know I’ve been delaying a series of post of friendships – how to deal with these things in ourselves and how to handle how we deal with it in others. Everything is a work in progress but yes…

    My baby’s only 5 and I worry! I went to a private school and transferred to a CUNY mid-way through…best decision I ever made. Realistically I’d go for the best school at the best price for Undergrad, weigh out the options based on career paths…will it be mandatory to go to grad school? Plus a lot of people don’t even study what they went to school right out of college unless is a trade.

    I think CUNY is a great option for my daughter but she’s set on Buff State….
    I’m applying the lessons I’ve learnt and the ones I’m still learning. The minute I got the social security for my 2yr old I opened an account. What’s college going to cost when he’s ready to go? A graduate degree isn’t mandatory but if you look at some of the job descriptions nowadays they’re asking for MBA etc. I agree that what you major in doesn’t always mean finding a career in that field.

I plan to do a follow up post on financial aid and organizations/scams to look out for that take advantage of our anxiety over this process. CUNY’s are really good and a year’s tuition under $7k a year for it’s value just can’t be beat. What I should’ve done sooner was go on campus tours to CUNY schools. Like every other landmark or tourist attraction in the city we take it for granted.

    Can I tell you, I got goosebumps? I am at point where I am conflicted about going to grad school and being a disruptor and instead investing my time into building and strengthening my business. But as you say, it’s something that has been instilled in us from early, get as all the qualifications and get a great job and you’ll be fine. And as we know often times that is NOT the case. But it is our Caribbean culture, to have those degrees and brag about how smart we are — sometimes while staying in a meaningless job or ones that doesn’t truly harness your full potential.

    Thanks for sharing your story, it is truly inspiring.

      Thank you Carey-Lee! It’s sooo part of our culture and there’s nothing wrong with it until we use the need for more advanced degrees as an excuse for daring greatly. Sometimes getting more education is thinking inside the box. Shelli-Rai James who was recently on the podcast said that there she heard somewhere that what they teach in school is what other persons have gone out and done and learned and they’re passing that down.

      Our reality is now that education and qualifications won’t get us that great job anymore.

    This article tackled so many questions, opinions, and bad habits I had in regards to journaling. I started about 5 years ago due to a break up that caused me to reevaluate my self on so many levels. I had to get back to being me and learning who I was and who I wanted to be. I often wrote and spell checked Lol. I also ran out of things to write. I would take long breaks and then I ultimately just stopped. Thank you for this article. It listed many reasons why its time for me to get back to writing and now I know it was normal why the thoughts I had surfaced. I now know I wasn’t pulling a “me” with all my extra thoughts!

    I couldn’t help but laugh at how spot on you were with the fact that post – its aren’t good for taking notes. As a paralegal I tend to grab post-its to write notes and then I’ll stick them in an organizing envelope. The problem with that is I have to go through a whole bunch of post-its before I find what I actually need. Let’s just say spiral notebook with tabs here I come! Lol…

      Yeah – get rid of those post-its and get a note book. You know the glue on the back of those post-its wear out so they don’t stick – so it’s so much more easier for you to lose them. I love notebooks because months or a year(s) from now I can go back to my notes.

    […] I don’t take no for an answer and I don’t pay much attention to the ‘you can’t do it.’ I learn this word from my minster in church growing up and as a child it was just a funny word but as an adult I discovered that it is this very thing that can spell success or failure. “Stick-to-it-iveness” which means I stick to whatever I set my mind to. My company has had moments of real challenges but I remembered “Stick-to-it-iveness” I keep that in the forefront of my mind and stay the course because persistence pays off in the long run. I am living proof of that. Sure I have a long way to go but when I look back at 5 years ago I have come a long way as well. If I listened to the naysayers, got defeated by the stumbles or got too high off my own ego I wouldn’t be where I am today. Sure there is cause for celebration in times of success but I am constantly reminding myself not to let small victories get to my head and cloud the view ahead. Andrew Clarke, Jamaican American & Founder & Executive Director of Braata Productions.

    Awesome podcast interview, especially with appropriation, as an american dancer, choreographer and instructor, this is often a struggle with sharing dance and my natrual connections/influences that i have with Caribbean music, dance , and culture (as i have studied and have been exposed/involved to it in various ways) in a manner that doesnt take, take,take, but also gives back, encourage and inform my students and audience. My classes are used to inform and connect and to get people to want to learn more. I educate them of my knowledge with the goal and discussion spark more interest to learn more about its orgins and connections. Do you feel this is a fair contribution to the preservation or is it frowned upon

    Hi Erica! Thanks for commenting! I would say when you’re positioning yourself to share a culture that isn’t your own, It’s making sure that you do your research for one and then credit and lift up those of the culture that are doing the work as well. It’s committing yourself to constant learning and offering your support ( whatever that looks like) to the community that you are borrowing from. I would say the last thing is also acknowledging who you and where you are from in that process and your connection to the culture in an effort to model for your students what responsible cultural appreciation looks like. Go forth! 🙂
