Good Afternoon, World!!! I am visiting my grandpa right now. My grandpa is doing well. We have been playing Monopoly most of the visit and are taking a break. I am enjoying my time with him. I am visiting him because we are both having trouble with grief over my grandma.
Missing my grandma is difficult and that is why I am keeping myself busy. Busy with various things. Spending time with people like my grandpa and later on with Junior and some of our friends.
Another way I have been keeping myself busy is reading. Reading has been one of my go to things as of lately to help me. To help me through some difficult moments.
Good Morning, World!!! I am still struggling with some depression from yesterday. Not sure why but I am. I am also dealing with some anxiety. My weighted blanket has been a life saver the last couple of days.
Right now I am figuring out what I am going to do for the day. I already know that I will be working on my workbooks as well as read. I will also be spending time with Junior and our friends to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
Good Morning, World!!! Happy Cinco de Mayo!!! Here is some information on Cisco de Mayo. Courtesy of the New York Times.
Cinco de Mayo, which isn’t widely celebrated in Mexico, commemorates an underdog victory over France in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. The victory was galvanizing for the Mexican forces — and for those supporting them from afar — but it was short-lived, as France later occupied Mexico for a few years. Still, Cinco de Mayo continued to be celebrated in Puebla and, perhaps more significantly, by Mexican-Americans north of the border.
In the early 1960’s, many Mexican-American activists entrenched in the country’s growing civil rights movement used the day as a source of pride. Close to two decades later, in 1989, an ad campaign by an importer of beers like Modelo and Corona was introduced around the day. The campaign was initially targeted toward Latinos but eventually broadened with print and TV ads. This year, Corona’s website featured a ticking “Countdown to Corona de Mayo” in the hours leading up to May 5.
Junior and I are going to celebrate it later on with some of our friends. Junior is Mexican American. So, he celebrates his culture on this day.
