“Hi! How are you? How is your life?!”

Typical Guy Answer: “I’m good, my life is good. How is yours?”

Typical Girl (ME) answer: “Oh djfmbhfkjqhfgwqhkdnmsavfehjfqweoi3ehqwlkdnmbcspwqihduefgbasmnbkwhdewbfaskjbkjfdbwqkgou (has a very long explanation of their day and week, and family)… so yeah! Oh! AND ewbfjewjgdfwkdhlqkndmvgwegiqdhnsmxbnvcmnnoiwhqudgeyqfavjh (tells super long story). Life is so great. Thanks for asking!”

So, if you readers are wondering how I am doing, I would want to express everything going on in my life and what makes me happy, motivated, sad, upset, etc. BUT I cannot articulate those things into a well written blog. Therefore, I will leave you with the typical guy answer and a fun fact….

Jamaica gained their independence in 1962.

Also, today is Friday the 13th and I am exhausted, but am brainstorming ideas to write about tomorrow that aren’t annoyingly long explanations of my entire life.

Here is a hint to what I want to write about.

Here is a hint to what I want to write about next.


Butterflies are captivating.


Why are we (me, especially) drawn to such simple creatures?

I Googled (weird that “googled” is an understood verb, you go Google!) some fun facts about them because I desire to know why they are so endearing. Maybe we can learn a lot from their quiet lifestyle.


  1. wing’s are transparent. {I should always be transparent with other people about the joys and struggles of life… I am still seen as beautiful by others and by the creator of all things.}
  2. taste with their feet
  3. live on an all-liquid diet. {Not sure what to do with the fact butterflies taste with their feet or that they live on all liquid diets. I’m rejoicing that is not the case for us humans. Although, if I could live on chocolate milk/milkshakes alone, I probably would.}
  4. must assemble their proboscis (from two parts, to one functioning part) as soon as it emerges from its chrysalis. A proboscis is its’ mouth. If it is not one functioning part, the butterfly is doomed because it cannot get nectar. {If I am not careful about what I say, eat, or feed my soul, I am surely doomed. Words are powerful. Food has a huge impact on my health. My soul needs the “b-i-b-l-e.. yes, that’s the book for me!”}
  5. drink from mud puddles, to get nutrients/minerals. {Life gets muddy, but you can still get something out of messiness in life}
  6. cannot fly if they are cold (ideal temp is 85° F). {My jaw dropped at this one. Don’t let the cold world harden you so that you are unable to fly. Be warmed by the goodness of life and spread your wings!}
  7. cannot fly if they are newly emerged. {take things one step at a time}
  8. live just 2-4 weeks, usually. {Life is short}
  9. are nearsighted, but can see and discriminate a lot of colors. {Don’t look too far into the future, see the colors today brings.}
  10. know a lot of tricks to prevent being eaten. {guard your heart}


I am not as much of a hippie as much as this post makes me seem. I’m in a really strange mood right now and for some unknown reason I decided researching butterflies was a good & calming idea. I don’t understand the human brain (mine is so weird).


Be captivating.

Thanks for reading… xoxoxo
