The nine percent or so that had power up until recently? A lot of them lost it. So it's back to square one for a lot of those people. Some have gotten power for a few hours. Others, like me, are waiting for anything. An update, a sign of life, anything that will bring in some … Continue reading Day Fifteen: What Even?
Day Thirteen: The Visit
The president didn't even last a day here. Last I heard he was leaving. He blames PR for ruining the budget for the year. Well, I mean...it's not like we planned for this. I mean, if we could plan hurricanes, we would totally know better than to ruin your precious budget. I can't find water … Continue reading Day Thirteen: The Visit
Day Twelve: Four Days Later
It's currently Saturday(when I started writing this) and I'm stuck waiting for a cab driver to give me a ride back to my aunt's. I opted to go home because I thought it would make me feel better. It didn't. I found out yesterday that I was on CNN on top of ABC News(which I … Continue reading Day Twelve: Four Days Later
Day Eleven: Maria, Maria~
So Hurricane Maria is almost here. It's expected to start affecting the island as early as 8pm tonight. Now the problem is how badly it's going to hit us.

Destiny 2 comes out at midnight and I'm eager to play. My anxiety over Irma though is totally overpowering everything. Like right now, I can't … Continue reading Day Nine: Tick Tock
Day Eight: 48 Hrs Remain
Irma is drawing closer and closer. People today are freaking out(like I mentioned a few posts back) and they're going crazy buying water and all the stuff. I grabbed a hold of some items yesterday and I think I'll be fine...for the most part. I'm worried about how things are gonna go. Tomorrow at midnight … Continue reading Day Eight: 48 Hrs Remain
Day Seven: Preparedness is…Something?
Today I took the time to get into getting ready for Irma. I took it upon myself to actually get some supplies. These being bottled water and some Chef Boyardee because it's one of those things that doesn't require heat in the event of a power outage. My little sister joined me for the day … Continue reading Day Seven: Preparedness is…Something?
Day Six: Hurricane Woes
The last Hurricane I ever recall ever being affected by was in the 90's. In the 2000's I remember a bunch of storms but a serious, hardcore hurricane? Pfft, heck if I remember. Now with Irma looking like a damn monster, it puts things into a bit of a perspective but also it dawns on … Continue reading Day Six: Hurricane Woes
