I’ve always loved music. Music has helped me through heartbreak, loss, love, happiness and everything in between. My older brother, Harley got me my first ipod and he put his music on it so I learned about so many different things through him such as the Violent Femmes, The White Stripes, Eminem, Rolling Stones, Al Green, Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Serge Gainsbourg, The Cure, David Bowie and so many more. My brother used to be in a band so, his songs were also on my ipod.

The music he introduced me to opened up for me to look up more artist that I fell in love with. There is one song that I love because it reminds me of my acting coach, Bill every time I listen to it. The song is called “if you could see me now” by The Script. My acting coach passed away when I was 15 and there isn’t a day where I don’t miss it and I always wonder if he see’s me. I miss him so much. Those lyrics make me cry every time, no matter how many times I hear it.

If you could see me now by The Script

The lyrics are:

It was February 14 Valentine’s Day
The roses came but they took you away
Tattooed on my arm is a charm to disarm all the harm
Gotta keep myself calm but the truth is you’re gone
And I’ll never get to show you these songs
Dad you should see the tours that I’m on
I see you standing there next to Mom
Both singing along, yeah arm in arm
Now there are days when I’m losing my faith
Because the man wasn’t good he was great
He’d say “Music was the home for your pain”
And explain I was young, he would say,
“Take that rage, put it on a page.
Take the page to the stage.
Blow the roof off the place.”
I’m trying to make you proud
Do everything you did
I hope you’re up there with God saying, “That’s my kid!”

I still look for your face in the crowd
Oh if you could see me now (Oh if you could see me now)
Would you stand in disgrace or take a bow?
Oh if you could see me now (Oh if you could see me now)

1 year in Haiti 

Today marks exactly a year since I moved back to Haiti. I love living in this country, but especially this town. Jacmel is where I grew up. I’ve been coming here since I was a month old. At age 5, I used to ride my bike around not telling anyone where I was going and I always felt safe, that was before there were so many motorcycles everywhere. I always felt free and I learned how to be independent in this country at a young age and I was always safe. 
Before moving to Haiti, I was on l antidepressants and the day I moved, I stopped taking them because I felt like I didn’t need them anymore. I felt more at peace with myself and my surroundings. When I was younger, every time I would come visit Jacmel, I would say one day I am going to move back and finally I did. This is my home, it is the place where I feel that I belong. This is the place that I fell in love. This is where I met Chris and got to know him and fell in love with him. Chris is the most wonderful thing that has happened to me. I found a man who is my partner, my best friend and my everything. He is my home. This is where I plan on raising my kids. 

Haiti is such a beautiful country. I always felt a little bit of a misfit everywhere else and here, I feel like I belong. It’s been a crazy amazing year! This was he best decision I ever made. Moving here was fate.

I know I haven’t written in a while, I will try to be better on updating about my life. 

It’s crazy how much has changed in the last 5 months and how fast those 5 months have gone by. 

5 months ago, I started seeing my boyfriend Chris and two weeks later, we moved in. That’s been an adventure of it’s own. Being with someone and living with them is different. Being in charge of the house hold and learning to do has been crazy. I feel lucky to be with him every day. He is a real man who puts me first before everything. He protects me, supports me and loves me.

Our dog 

Chris and I just got a German Shepherd. He is 2 months old. 

We named him Zeiss after the German camera lens. It’s what I get for being with a photographer. 

His birthday is January 11th just like me. Getting this dog seemed like it was meant to be.

He is very handsome and adorable. We love him already.

Goodbye 2016

A lot of people are saying how 2016 has been the worst year, but for me it has been the best year. I feel like every year for me is better then the last. I accomplished a lot of things.

In 2016:

-I worked my butt of at La Sorbonne

-I graduated from La Sorbonne 

-I decided to move back to Haiti 🇭🇹

– My beautiful God daughter Arya was born 

-I made the move to Haiti and it was the best decision I made as I found my place. 

-I started my first teaching job

-I found an amazing community of people 

-I met someone who was the biggest surprise of 2016 and who makes me so incredibly happy. ❤ We started seeing each other and 2 weeks later, we moved in together. I fell in love with him. He was the unexpected and the best part of 2016. He is so good to me and I can’t imagine not being with him.
