This is my first ever BLOG. I decided to create one after reading of life in Iraq on other blogs.

I am female civil engineer living in Kingston, Jamaica.

I sometimes wonder if we are at war too? The first month of the year has not yet ended and there are already more than 100 people who have died violently at the hands of their countrymen. If this aint war then what is?

Strangely enough life, for the majority of jamaicans, is very ordinary. This morning i woke up just before 7 am and prepared myself for my tennis lesson at 9 am. I play tennis twice a week with a coach. Hopefully i will enter some amatuer tournaments by the summertime. I came home, rested a bit and then went to a day spa for a facial treatment. I then went to my workplace and put in over 3.5 solid hours of work, before going home to watch movies. I find it very difficult to do analytical stuff at work during the week. There are just too many distractions!!

So now, I am sitting here at this hour watching movies with my family and waiting for the male final of the aussie open to begin. I'm rooting for Hewitt!!! We have decided to make it a sleepless night, although i have already fallen asleep at least three times....but i am up now and feel like i can go till morning.
