Hey yall! My name is Safiyah. I’m 35 years old. I am a mom to a 7 year old boy. I work in law enforcement but I decided to dive head first into this whole personal blogging thing. I’ve actually been thinking about doing this for years. I started a YouTube channel many moons ago, did a few videos then stopped. Everyday life got in between my creativity. The thought of starting back up always lingered in the back of my head. Then reality would set in. Who has time for this? When I get home from work, my other job as a mom begins. Homework, dinner, working out (maybe) and then I sit down, open up my laptop and my eyes begin to get heavy. I’m tired and I’m sleepy. I’ll try again tomorrow. Ha…years passed.
There are so many things that I would like to discuss, share my insight on or just plain write what’s on my mind. However, learning how to set up a website, learning how to use and utilize Word Press (almost gave up again) was overwhelming. I wanted my website to look a certain way. How do I link all these social media accounts together? Blah blah blah… is this worth it? Do I want to capitalize off this shit? I ain’t got time for this! Sighs, but I am here. LOL
Anyway, my favorite color is blue. I’ve always wanted to be a successful songwriter in the music industry. I went to college and majored in Music Business. Interned to no avail. I couldn’t get my pinky toe in the door for shit. My love for music has never subsided. However, that career path wasn’t for me. I still write songs though.
I’m a Trinidadian-American. I’m very in-tuned with my west indian culture. I love my Trini food and music. I play Mas for carnival (which I’ll elaborate more on in a future post). I’m open minded but think differently than the average person. I’m big on personal space, hygiene, being neat and being clean. I’m some what of a loner but I love to have people around that make me laugh.
I like to zone out and enjoy quiet time. My patience is a bit thin lol. I avoid conflict and confrontation. Sitting back an analyzing situations is something that I constantly do. I’m not adventurous, I love to plan out everything and I love to be early.
Me, I’m just unique, but I’m genuine, loyal and true. I’m the meek leo.
