Journal entry #3: Tsunami drill

 :

It’s been a while since I’ve done a journal entry. This one is going to be short. 🙂

Today at work we had a tsunami drill and we had lots of walking to do. Lots of calm walking to get to the evacuation site. I appreciated the walk because Chaguaramas is a beautiful place with plenty hiking trails but in a real life situation, people would be RUNNING for higher grounds!

Yes, I work near the sea, something I considered a blessing before construction work on a water park started to block my view. Back to the drill, our evacuation site is a gun range. When we got there we had to bear the heat and wait it out for instructions which barely came. Then one of the wardens announced that if we see any shells on the ground to not pick it up.

 :

Nope. No spent shells here.

It was funny because no one bothered with even looking down at the ground before. After the warning, most of the boys (and some gals) looked down hopefully at the ground in hopes of finding a spent shell or two.

Bearing the heat

Although we had to spend some time away from our desks in the unbearable heat which made us grumble about cold showers, it was a beautiful day. 🙂

February 18th: Far from normal

Green Wooden Board With Heart Hole

Many of us think of our lives as boringly normal, while others live the high life. Take a step back, and take a look at your life as an outsider might. Now, tell us at least six unique, exciting, or just plain odd things about yourself.

^ I don’t do selfies.

^ I can bend my ankles right back until they touch the floor… in heels. I’ve had people tell me that it was cool and I’ve also had people tell me that it scares them because I can break my ankles.

fashion, feet, girl

^ I’m in love with the law! I know I’ll never be a lawyer and I could never see myself representing a dishonest client, but I am in love with anything law and I make it my business to read up on courtroom drama and watch TV shows relating to law. My favorite law movie is The Firm. The book was also quite enjoyable.

^ Blue is my favorite color… although I mostly wear black.

^ I hold no grudges.

^ My name is Diana and I hate it when people call me Princess Diana.

How many siblings do you have? What’s your birth order?

What is the strangest/weirdest thing you have ever eaten?

When it comes to food, I am not adventurous. I try to stay away from unappetizing things.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I normally read and study the Bible save for that one Bible study class I had a few years ago. I started to study the Bible with renewed interest and I am learning many new things. I also downloaded some Bible study material via the Google play store (they have so many great apps!) and it has been a blast! Um, I don’t know what I’m quite looking forward to next week God’s willing as I haven’t thought that far ahead.

Le organization!

La Petit Muse is a rather random blog. As many of you may know/notice, I don’t stick to a particular topic daily. I just post whatever comes to mind. This is an identity problem for some readers.

I am organizing the blog where it concerns the following categories:

BASIC ENGLISH

At least two days a week, I want to take us back to an English class whether it be nouns, verbs, or constructing sentences.

DEVOTION

Any given day!

FAIRY TALE FRIDAY

I’m still working on this. 

MUSINGS

Sometimes they make sense. Sometimes they don’t. They’re mini rants and I like rambling.

PHOTO CHALLENGE

Hopefully, I’ll be posting more photos this year. 

WRITING WISDOM WEDNESDAY

Tons of quotes on writing, so little time.

SUNDAY SONGS

This event was co-hosted by Rosema last year and I quite like it. I am thinking of continuing it this year.

My resolutions!

I don’t do resolutions. Really, they’re just solutions that we ‘re’ in order to remember to… okay, I’m rambling. I’m looking forward to a…

^ Focus, breathe, and live God’s Word. This year had been a trying year for me. I’ve reconnected with God, and I got baptized (future post). I am still, but a newborn babe trying to stay on the right track. 

^ Get my stories out on Wattpad. I’ve been deciding where I should publish my stories for free and decided to go with Wattpad. 

^ Complete outstanding projects. So many projects, so little time! I should probably schedule the most important ones first.

And of course, to live healthier!
