Hi everyone 🙂 Today I’m quoting a caption I saw by Rhea Gayle, local designer, on instagram. “It’s my life, I can do whatever the heck I want.” So we set ourselves on fire, silly enough to believe that we can draw all the heat […]

Caribbean Party

I listen to any genre of music, hip hop, pop, rap, rock, alternative, country, RnB, gospel, dub step, soca, as long as I like the song.

My fave genre of music is reggae, which is a part of Jamaica’s culture but I have to admit I do listen to dancehall, though some people don’t like the rawness of it, it’s also a part of the Jamaican culture and I was grown on it, I do dance to it as well.

Dancehall has 3 main types of songs, there are dancing chunes (tunes) which are songs that tell you what dance moves to do, for example Everybody Dance by RDX or Tek Weh Yuself by Mr. Vegas; there are bad man chunes which are (more…)

Be you

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be mad by those who could not hear the music.”

-Friedrich Nietzsche

I say be you, what if the case was that the music is playing in one’s head? then we would all be mad here. People are always going to judge, they will always have something to say so don’t make decisions based on the fear of what others might think, do what feels true to yourself.
