Share Your World – May 1, 2017



Picture from Cee Neuner

Would you rather live where it is always hot or always cold?

Always Hot!! My Ancestors were from Africa and I suffer during the cold, freezing icy New York winters.

Some of my neighbors do not believe in either shoveling the snow or salting the ice. Falling is a real issue. Many of my co-workers have fallen and broken bones resulting in them missing several weeks from the job.

Skin was actually peeling off my arms and legs last winter. It was extremely painful. Until I discovered the benefits of Coconut Oil for my hair, scalp and skin my hair actually broke off and fell out of my head!!  Therefore I need heat full-time. My skin is now back to normal and my hair grows faster in hot weather.

Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself? 

Personally I think I look better with long hair. The photo you see as my Avatar is my College Graduation photo. At that time my hair was in locs that were waist length. I could actually sit on my hair. Added bonus: Guys like long hair. Got lots of compliments from men.

2002 Graduation Marymount Manhattan College

However Long hair requires more grooming and care so in recent years I’ve kept my Afro either cut short or allowed it to grow only to Medium length.  I would still like it to grow longer. Perhaps shoulder length just so I could get a variety of styles.  Wearing my hair natural I still get compliments from the Brothers. Most Black Men prefer Women to wear their hair natural.

Since I’m on vacation this week I’m wearing more of a Free Form Afro. Kind of a Wash ‘N’ Go. The less one manipulates Afro hair the faster it will grow. Also as I stated in a previous Blog Post I take lots of Vitamins and keep my hair moisturized at all times.

What is your favorite month of the year?  That’s a toss up between February which is my Birth Month and June which is the start of my Favorite Season Summer!! 

What is the easiest way for your to learn something new?  By reading, by seeing and doing, in a classroom?

Doing. I am a

Kinesthetic Learner

I can read about something or have someone explain the process to me but unless I perform the task hands on it won’t stick. As for the Classroom which seems eons ago I would say I did well in every subject except Math. I have a math block. No amount of doing or explaining ever helped me. College was a different story. I excelled in College. I made the Deans List in 1999 and Graduated with a 3.6 GPA in May 2002.

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

I’m on vacation and my brother Stephen is with me. Stephen’s Birthday is May 3rd and he will turn 56.

Today we went to see the movie Fate of the Furious. Good movie with lots of action, car chases, stuff blowing up and fights. Stephen Loved it. This is the first film in the Fast and Furious chain without Paul Walker who sadly passed away. There is a new Member of the F & F crew, a Black British Woman. We both enjoyed this film. Tomorrow will probably be a Dinosaur Day. We will visit the American Museum of Natural History and say Greet our Dino Buddies.

I return to work next week then I go back on vacation again!!  That’s the great thing about gaining Union Seniority.  As the years pass I earn/accrue more vacation time plus I carried over vacation days from last year. There are benefits to being a Union Member! DC 37 Union Proud!!

  1. Stephen has the same birth date as my sister. My sister is 59 this year. So they are even fairly close in age. 😀 Coconut oil is great for skin and hair.

    1. Thanks. Tomorrow is Stephen birthday but we began celebrating Sunday. Right now we are in the American Museum of Natural History. Dinosaurs and mummies.
      Happy birthday to your sister.
