The name St. Lucia often brings to mind images of white sandy beaches, cocktails with umbrellas, clear blue water and leaving your cares behind you.
It was the first time I was going to be attending a concert as a concert photographer. I had a great camera, a nice big SD card for the camera, my phone (thank goodness!) as backup, and my media pass stuck to my sleeve. The only issue was that I had to buy new batteries for the camera. And a charger, because it takes a specific type of battery. Okay. Not a big deal. Hit Best Buy, hit up Amazon, got four new batteries and two chargers. That should do it. I'll just charge them for a little while before we leave for the concert.
I see you there, new mom. I see you scrolling through Facebook and wondering what to make of all that information. You want to do what's best for your new baby. I would say 99.9% of parents do. But baby's almost two months old. And he's due for his vaccines. And there are so many people on Facebook saying that vaccines are the reason their child has autism. Vaccines are the reason their child has eczema, ADHD, diabetes, any number of chronic or acute illnesses. What do you do? What are you supposed to make of all those stories about "vaccine injured" children?
It started out innocently enough. I met him at orientation for the college program I had decided to take, when I decided to go back to school full-time. At 45. He seemed nice enough. A little quirky, sometimes a bit shy seeming, but nice enough. I didn't think too much of him beyond that. During orientation I hung out with him and with a girl who was also starting the program with us. The three of us became friends fairly quickly.
Have you ever Googled "What do women want?" I have. It's a little disconcerting. Because, despite the fact that I didn't put the words "in a man" in my search, the first page of results came up with articles with titles like "What do women want in a man?" and "10 Things Men Wish Women Knew About Sex" (Guess what, we probably already know them. In fact, there are probably more than 10 things WOMEN wish men knew about sex).
DISCLAIMER: I don't speak for all women, we're all different. But I speak from my experience and expectations. Thank you.
