I was reading today on the news, social media, and the internet that over a million students across the United States walked out of school yesterday, March 14, 2018, to protest and support an assault weapons ban across the country. This was spurred by yet another school shooting last month. As I perused through different … Continue reading One voice – Observing social movements
It is another late night. Still unable to sleep at a “normal” time. It is almost 1 a.m. and once again I am still wide awake. I used to start feeling tired about 9:30 in the evening and would be asleep by 11 p.m. It has been over a month since the last time I … Continue reading Insomnia – Too many thoughts
It is March 8th, 2018 and according to my calendar and social media, it is International Women’s Day. To be honest, I had no idea there was such a day. I don’t spend a lot of time following trends, politics or anything related to social movements. It’s not that I don’t care but sometimes my … Continue reading Women
It is March 3rd, 2018. Yesterday was Friday and sometimes my typical mornings are spent at a local casino using whatever free play that is on my player's rewards account at the time. A mailer on Thursday saying I had $15 in free play to spend, so I thought why not since I had nothing … Continue reading Vibes. Aura. The Soul’s frequency.
It’s Tuesday, February 20, 2018. A typical morning for us, getting up, showers, dressed, and ready to go. Ready to start the day and keep moving forward. After getting kids up and moving, I head back to my room to start getting ready. I normally, out of habit now, pick up my phone to check … Continue reading Things we learn…retrospect of growing up.
Lying here, thinking about today. My attempt to socialize more. Normally thats not hard for me. Yet, when I try to be friendly with other women, they tend to blow me off. That's what happened today, again. I tried to see just the positives, to not let it get to me, but it did. I … Continue reading I am, who I am.
It is February 7th, 2018, 4:20 in the morning. Today is my half-sister’s birthday. I haven’t talked to her in over a year but that’s a whole different story for another day. Once again I fell asleep last night at around 9:30 pm, which is not my usual 11 to 11:30 time. I have been … Continue reading 4 a.m. thoughts…I’m not a damsel in distress.
I sit here contemplating the post I made a few days ago...trying to decide whether to continue chatting online. There were a few whose true intentions finally showed and they were unfollowed then blocked. A few tried messaging but after I looked at their profiles, recognizing the similarity to previous people who were unscrupulous, so … Continue reading Hello friend.
Another night filled with doubt. Thoughts in my head, I want to shout. Not always this way, this is the truth. Feeling older, down and blue. Rather be filled with laughter and joy. Instead of irritated, feeling annoyed. Not sure what started it this time. Spiraling feeling, getting out of line. Wish things were easier, … Continue reading “Always Me” by Suzanne Allen
January 31, 2018 It is a typical morning, rushing around trying to get the teenagers moving and hoping my coffee will be done before we head out the door. Every morning, I wake up and check social media to see what’s happening in the world. This is usually when I will find a random message … Continue reading Don’t call me Queen – Why this annoys me.
