About Me...

My name is Renee (though once people know me they call me Ren).
I'm 34 (and often find myself wondering when that happened).
I live in Trinidad (which is part of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago - in the Caribbean).
I'm working at finding my place in the world. Have had hints of it but no concrete realisation thus far... This blog is to help me along... and maybe - through sharing my thoughts, ideas and feelings - to help you too. Thanks for stopping by ♥


----------»»»♀«««----------
Twenty-five random things about me:
1) I'm a bookworm… forever & always :) there are few things that can compare to a good book… and the books are *always* better than the movies... lol


2) I love cats. & I identify with them...


3) I regret stopping my ballet & piano classes... if I knew then what I know now I’d have continued... perhaps I’ll start back with d piano classes someday...


4) 80's music rocks ;) lol


5) Am more spiritual than [a lot of] ppl think.


6) I'd like to visit Japan and China someday.


7) I tend to compartmentalize my life... though am trying [as of this year] to integrate all areas.


8) I'm slightly obsessed with cinnamon.... mmmm *cinnamon*


9) I'm not much of a nature girl (ick grass... bugs... ick) but I feel most settled? Am most peaceful in green spaces...


10) I'm horribly afraid of heights... and death by drowning. :s


11) The state of our health system pisses me off completely...


12) I don't usually curse... unless I'm really really really vexed. I use creative description: oh fruitcake! Xyz blinkin ppl...


13) I love April... and Thursdays... the world runs smoothly during April and Thursdays are usually happy days... for me anyway...


14) I hum for no reason at all... and unconsciously as well.


15) Flowers are pretty pretty things... too bad they die when I try to grow them. *sigh*


16) I believe in karma... and past lives... reincarnation... divination via tarot, runes etc.


17) Am not big on drinking... partly cuz I find alcohol smells...non-good.


18) I wish ppl [myself included] would take more responsibility for themselves... and the world around them.


19) Am not big on clubbing... I truly hate crowds... & flashing lights...


20) I find it [mildly] amusing that I can organise my home & my work... but my room looks like a tornado passed through it.


21) I like taking photos... I think it would be interesting to do photography professionally...


22) I can use [and have used]: a hammer, a spirit level, a wrench, a spanner (ok diff size spanners), diff types of screwdrivers, a drilling machine, putty. Lol thanks dad.


23) I can cook... yes it's only vegetarian (have I mentioned that I'm a vegetarian?) - but it is pretty good. Bake? Me? :S No.


24) I get annoyed at ppl asking when I'm going to get married. Mostly cuz I feel I’ve already done some of the 'taking care of a family/running a household' bit. I'd like for it to be just me... for a long while.


25) I've got a fabulous middle name (courtesy of my mum)... though a lot of ppl mix it up, forget what it is or can't figure out how to pronounce it...
