ME? : "The Anti- New Years Resolution Address"

My name is “Jae” and I live in Jamaica, born and bred.
I’m a third year student at the University of the West Indies where I’m studying Media and Communication. My hopes for the future? Simply put, I just wanna BE SOMETHING. I want to create!

I’m pretty much a blogger virgin. I’ve always wanted to try it out, but I end up puss-ing out every time because by nature I’m pretty apprehensive about “putting myself out there”.
All is not lost, however, as I have decided to put one foot before the other as a representation of “the first step” about which dear mother encourages upon cries of apprehension and self doubt on my part [which come more often than ‘sometimes’, honestly].

Some Fun Facts:

-The Bane of my existence is boredom, procrastination and counter-productivity. However, I intend to get some ‘drive’ and ‘ambition’ very soon – either by way of some divine intervention or even if I have to beg, steal, buy, or borrow it.
-I have become comfortably numb. I’ve been known to call myself a ‘zombie’ on a few occasions.
#Yes. A South Park Reference. That just happened.
-I’m socially inept, occasionally obsessive, and a hoarder of sorts. 
-I half-ass half-assing.
-Full circle, low down dirty ‘pessimist’. I call myself ‘Captain Hindsight’ for crying out loud.  
-I have much fewer than ‘a few’ friends.
….and this is beginning to get a little ‘much’, so I’ll stop here. [Seriously, I could go on for hours]

The Revelation
I was watching Barbara Walters' annual ‘Most Fascinating People’ special the other night, listening to Oprah drop gems about what led to her monetary and spiritual success over the years. I must say, her words were killing a chick softly. I began to think right then and there …all introspective-like:
“Jae, What have you accomplished so far? What do you want out of life? Where-the-HELL-are-you-going”?

*crickets* …I had no answer.

I’m 21 years old now [ugh], and I’ve just gotten the memo:


So, here I am… JUMPING IN! No more succinctness, procrastination, and reclusion.

‘Life’…for me….begins….. *NOW*!

I’m not gonna try to experience hitch-hiking through Europe, free fallin’ from a flying plane [why would anyone wanna do that sh*t?], live with the Rastafarians at Bobo Hill for a year [what?], or ride a sand dune across a desert on the outskirts of Dubai.
Simply put, I just want to become more ‘present’ and ‘aware’.

I want to see everything, hear everything, taste everything, touch everything, feel everything, go everywhere, and do sexy sexy things. I’m gonna inspire and allow myself to be inspired. My life will now become footage reel for that damn John Mayer ‘Say’ song’s music video [a bit much, I know].

It’s time for me to RAWK-OUT-WITH-MY-CAWK-OUT!

Here goes.......
