Best Weekend In A Long Time | Roundup

Weekend Roundup

I have had such an amazing weekend it was only fair that I shared that with you guys.

But before I get to that, this week has been a really tough and stressful time for me. Both professionally and personally.

Blogging had taken a toll on me. I have suddenly hit an all time lower traffic than usual and that led me to feeling a bit depressed and frustrated.

Despite efforts to remedy the situation, it still didn’t improve. So I asked some other Bloggers for advice on how they cope during down time. The best response I got was to take a break and that is exactly what I did.

I had met a guy named Jon at one of our functions held earlier in the week who was in Panama attending a Conference. He invited me to that but unfortunately I was unable to go as I had to work. So he asked me to hang out on Friday night after work, as it was going to be his last night in Panama before heading back to New York.

All members who were part of the Conference were there as well. It was going to be their last night out before everyone headed back to their various countries next week.

The majority of them were Canadians, some Panamanians, Americans, Colombians and Mexicans. I also met one or two persons from Israel and Lebanon. I was the only Trinidadian in the crowd and it didn’t matter!

So not only did I use this opportunity as a means to get out of the house but also to interact and network with a bunch of different people. In reality we were literally a group of strangers hanging out at Tantalo Roofbar in Casco Viejo which by the way has an amazing view of the city.

My choice of drink for the night was Mojito. A mojito is a Cuban cocktail which is made of white rum, mint, lime juice, sparkling or soda water and sugar or honey. I had about 6 of them before deciding I had enough for the night.

Saturday Night

I had gotten invited at the home of a former work colleague’s going away party, where I spent about 4 hours before we all headed to Casco Viejo to end the night at a Club.

On both days I partied until the 3:30 the next morning. Luckily for Uber transportation is never an issue.

Can’t remember when last I partied this hard but damn I had a good time!

While I did not have a great week I surely made up for it on the weekend and I am so happy about that. I look forward to a better week ahead.

How was your week? What did you do on the weekend?

    Love your blog design! I’m always meeting new people, it’s so refreshing. I can be shy of course, but not for long. I’m sorry you didn’t have a great week, but at least you fit some good things in at the end there! Stay positive 🙂

  • Patricia Conte

    Sometimes it’s worth it to let things go and try to forget for a bit. I know that blogging can be discouraging sometimes (happens to me in waves)! Keep moving forward!

    • Thanks Patricia. I am learning to take a break every now and again 🙂

  • Devina

    I love a good cocktail and I love meeting new people! Thank god for Uber right!

  • I love how you get to meet new people and new cultures thru people. For me is hard to step out of my comfort zone and talk to people. Your short hair looks gorgeous on the first picture! 🙂

    • I am also very reserved when it comes to meeting people as well but its comes with the territory of my job so I can’t escape it. Thank you!!

  • Cocktails are much needed sometimes, LOL. On a more serious note, sometimes I also fall into a rut and get down on myself and depressed – all of January I could not write a single post on my blog! It was crazy. I write about motivation and positivity so if you ever need a boost, come over to for some motivation and inspiration. I also think sometimes we worry too much about traffic on sites and all the numbers. It will all work out and sometimes traffic up and sometimes it is down, as long as you love what you are doing, you will be fine. All the best for a great week xoxox Sheri

    • Thanks for sharing Sheri. Yes I think we get caught up with site traffic and numbers sometimes. Thanks for that reminder. It will all work together in the end. Have a great week yourself

  • At least it was productive, and those cocktails look amazing!
