Celebrating 2014! That’s exactly what I am doing at this very moment- celebrating 2014 for you, for me, for our friends, our family, our loved ones!
Many may ask why I am celebrating 2014 but they ought to remember I am one who celebrates day by day and takes it bit by bit and this for me is an opportunity to celebrate the 365 days days for what they were! Most certainly it has given me the privilege to meet each one of you online! Thank you for that!
As 2014 is at the end, many will not be able to see 2015. For those who are there is much to be thankful for!
For me it is for these reasons:
- My life.
- My health.
- My family- mom- Doris, dad- Ranjit, husband-Shiva, sister- Ria, brother-Ricky, sister-in-law- Leci, nephew- Richie, mother-in-law- Rajkumarie, brother-in-law- Ugesh, sisters-in law, Vidya and Sumatee and Sumatee’s kids, Rebekah and Joshua, brother-in-law-Kenneth,
- My friends
- My COSTAATT family-lecturers and classmates all included
One thing’s for sure- ‘Trini’s’ know how to celebrate Christmas! For those outside of Trinidad and Tobago who have never heard of the term “Trini” which I hardly doubt, it refers to Trinidadians and Tobagonians!
Just how do we celebrate it?
- Celebration via prayer marking the birth of Christ
- Food- Yes….pastelles, ham, fruit cake, punch-ah-crème, all you can eat “Trini” style- be it vegetarian or non-vegetarian- so curry goes hand in hand, meat or no meat,
- Music- Parang, Parang, Soca Parang, Carols,
- Drinks- Sorrel, Ginger Beer, Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages alike
- Good company
In closing allow me to say Merry Christmas to all- family, friends, loved ones, COMM350 classmates, Mr. Kayode James, viewers who are following my blog, and all other viewers, old and new alike.
To the readers of this post, it’s an opportunity to be retrospective. We started in September, we worked together, we defied odds and overcame challenges but we persevered and completed our projects in December.
Our paths have crossed and for most of us our paths will cross again. To all the students of COSTAATT’s COMM350 Class of Semester 1 of the 2014-2015 Academic Year taught by Mr. Kayode James, Senior Lecturer at COSTAATT’s Ken Gordon School of Journalism and Communication Studies, it was my pleasure to meet you and to work with you.
To Mr. Kayode James, Sir thank you for your guidance and support. It was my pleasure to be in your class.
Many of my classmates will be continuing their blogs and they need your support. I ask that you please lend them your support as they offer a lot to learn. Here are the links to their respective blogs. The list is not exhaustive and though it may seem lengthy I am sure there is a thing or two here that will surely pique your interest.
To all Happy Reading! To the bloggers, Happy Blogging!
Stay safe everyone and continue being blessed! All the best!
