Nope!, I am not getting up at 5 am to go for a run. I’d much rather hit the snooze button on the alarm and get my last winks of sleep before starting the day off. I ‘aab-soo-lutely hate working out with others because they tend to slow me down or break my concentration. And Oh how it pisses me off when someone tries to give me fitness tips when they have never worked out with me… How do you know that I don’t already do that? What I do love is going high intensity on the elliptical machine, zoned out, music blasting in my ear with an up-tempo beat! My favorite time to go to the gym is after everyone else has gone home so that I can concentrate on me. What does this all mean? I know my personal fitness style! I am highly competitive with myself and am self motivated to beat my personal best. I am The Competitor.

|Wentworth Mansion, Charleston SC|
1. any powerful or compelling emotion or feeling, as love or hate.
I love to travel: Scoping out interesting places, the planning, people watching in airports or train stations, arriving and seeing new cities and exploring different cultures!! I love it all! Places I have been include Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Turks and Caicos Islands, St. Thomas, Germany, Amsterdam, Iraq, Kuwait, Bahrain, Ireland and more! I also love blogging, so I have decided to merge the two in a new segment called Passion for Travel!!
It has been amazing finding a life mate/fellow blogger (U-Topix)/future husband (#hint-hint), that shares my passion. We woke up early Saturday morning, both feeling restless, and decided to make a quick day trip to Charleston, SC. I am so glad that we did, because Charleston is an amazingly beautiful place full of rich history. It is a symbolic place particularly for my family's history. My brother began tracing our family lineage some years ago and was able to find documentation that details where my family, and many other African American families ,were first brought over on slave ships to America through ports cities like Charleston and Savannah, GA. I look at this trip as a sojourn into my families history! ...Let us never forget our past, but learn and grow from it to create better tomorrows. See the slideshow below and go on the journey through the picturesque streets of Charleston with us!!
