Hi Lovelies!!

This is #mymug

I’m Krystal, but around here I’m known as Kay.

Which is odd ...

... since I can count on one hand the number of people in my real life call me Kay. 

I chose the name for the blog because I fully intended this gig to be secret forever and didn’t want to be google-able (not a word – I checked) - also because every female in my family’s name starts with the letter “K”.

It stuck – I’m now Kay - and I love it.

I’m an attorney (another reason I didn’t want to be googled ha!), a tutor, a wanna-be runner (who may never enter a race), a writer (one day I plan to finish the book I’ve been writing for years – and I will) and a Class A idiot. An idiot with way too many degrees ... I have two undergrad degrees, a Legal Certificate and just finished grad school. Don't worry I have no current plans to go back to school. I'm done.

My sarcasm knows no bounds and on my better days I fancy myself a comedian. No joke. I legit think I’m funny and will laugh at my own jokes, even if I’m the only one laughing – which probably means I’m not funny. At all.

And I write about it all…

I’m from the Caribbean – Trinidad and Tobago in fact – And so sometimes I get all nostalgic for the homeland and post about my country and my Caribbean Life. I hope you’ll love those posts too.

Ok so let’s get serious for a second ...

I started this blog in 2014, which has to date been the worst full year of my life. It was terrible from the word “go” in January until the very end of December. There were no “get out of jail free” cards and certainly no good “chance” cards handed to me. I just had to endure the never-ending battles of the year and face them as they came.

See, I started the blog when my beautiful sister Kerry was ill. Sadly, she passed away in March 2014 – and took with her a piece of my heart. Though I don’t speak about her a lot on my blog – I get too emotional – she is the reason it exists. At the time, I needed a place to exhale and so I turned to the one thing that I have always used as an escape – writing. And this blog was born. The truth is I lost a lot of things and more than one person in 2014but gained a whole new perspective on life. I learned a lot about people, I learned a lot about myself and I learned a lot about life. Thankfully, life has begun to look up again these day … And let’s all just go ahead thank sweet baby Jesus for that – because this girl has had enough.

This blog is truly about my crazy life.

Stick around; grab a glass of bubbly, wine or Scotch (my drinks of choice), read, laugh, and enjoy The Kay Times.

  1. We have a lot more in common than what I thought! I graduated law school 2 years ago and I'm currently finishing up my MBA. What are you in grad school for? I'm going to go out on a limb and guess you're a slight overachiever?haha I also love to read, and still somehow try to fit in 1 or 2 books a week. So nice to meet you!
