Hopes in Getting Back Into Building Structure in My Life

Good Afternoon World, from the wonderful city of Seattle. Before I go on to discuss what I would like to, I just want to let you know how unusual the weather has been here in Seattle. First and fore most Seattle is known to have lots of rain and wind in the middle of October but not this year. In fact this October has been the driest October in recorded history Seattle has experience. Finally today it’s drizzly and breezy which is a good thing.

On the good thing note, I got a job. A job that is only twelve hours a week and not full time. I may want a full time job but right now a job is job not how many hours it is a week. I’m working at an employer I used to work at and am grateful for that. My supervisor is supper awesome and funny as hell. I also like the fact that he is direct with his communication. In fact I am looking forward to him being my supervisor.

On a different subject and I’ve brought this up two or three times before but I will be doing “workbooks” on various topics with the for “Dummies.” The first two I will be be working on is “U.S History for Dummies” and I am sure they will be missing many important things in history as well a misleading in other parts. The other Dummies book is “Basic Math and Pre-Algerbra for Dummies.” I am doing this to better educate myself and hopefully learn something.

Now on to the blogging part of all this. I’ve notice I haven’t blogged as much and want to blog on the regular basis. Yes, I know I’ve done and said this before but this time I will do want I can and what it take to regularly blog.

Now on to a subject I highly like to do which is household chores. I’m not a big fan of them However it is something that needs to be done on the regular basis and plan to schedule to do it in my planner along with the other things I need and/or want to do.

Let’s get on to a less boring topic which is more fun topic of my cat Billie. Billie is just as cute as he can be. I love my cat Billie so much and I am so blessed that he chose me to be his human. I am grateful that he is in my life.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It means a great deal to me from my end of things that you do read my blog. If it wasn’t for you reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. So, thank you again from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Productivity While Sleepless in Seattle

Happy Middle of the Night From Seattle. I am dealing with some depression that is causing the insomnia. I have a lot on my mind including not having a job which means no money. I’m worried about paying rent. I am hoping that you can my reading can click on the advertisements so I can get money to pay rent. Sorry to start this pvarticular blog post for asking for money by clicking on the advertisements. It might be only a few cents but it helps. Again thank you for putting up with me asking for money the first paragraph.

Now on to what I plan to discuss; my productivity since I can’t sleep, Let start with me educating myself with books for Dummies. Right now I am reading U.S History for Dummie. I only read tthe first chapter and I will do the quiz online.

I’ve also been doing some arts as well as crafts. I’ve done some coloring, paint by color, latch hoot and cross stitch. Being creative help with the depression and so does educating myself with the Dummies Education series.

Of course I can”t forget Billie had been a great help with my depression. He is loving and tuned into my down time like when I am down in the dumps.

I don’t have much more to say in this blog post. I do want to thank you for reading for my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things. Thanks again for reading my blog. Peace Out, World

A Sleepless Night in Seattle for this Human but not the Cat

As I mentioned in my last post a colleague of mine attempted suicided. This friend and colleague are going to make it. I visited for a couple of hours and came home to do some self care. Self care that included reading about Seattle History while holding my teddy bear and other stuffed animals. Of course I am unable to sleep due to my colleague but my cat is sure sound asleep snoring a way. I love my cat so much and am appreciative that you read my blog not matter how debby downer it is or positive polly it is and everything in between. Thank you for being loyal readers.

History of 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.

Thank you for reading. Peace Out, World!!!

Awesome Time With Friends

Hello, World!!! It’s me again. Yes, I know this is like my millionth post for today but I wanted to share with you my time spent with friends. I met up with some friends at Red Robin. Red Robin is the place my friends and I go to when we want to meet up and hang out.

My friends and I discussed books we are reading as well as podcast we are listening to. One friend discussed a podcast she is listening to about civics while another friend talked about a book they are reading on the History of Wonder Woman. The book sounds like one that I would enjoy. I discussed the podcast that I am listening to about philosophy.

Discussing such topics with friends is quite helpful for both me and my friends. It is helpful to me and my recovery. It is helpful to me because it helps me not isolate. It is also helpful for me to have stuff to discuss with people.

Thank you for reading. Peace Out, World!!!

Oh, How I Want To Sleep

Good Morning, World!!! All I want to do is right now is sleep. Right now as I blog, I am listening to some jazz music. Jazz music reaches my soul unlike any other genre of music.

Something else that I have been doing is reading. Tonight I have been reading a history text book and the part of history I am reading about happens to be the history of jazz. Kind of ironic that I am listening to jazz music. I have also been reading some Wonder Woman comic books. Wonder Woman is my favorite superhero. It appears that reading has been quite helpful for me the last few weeks especially the last few days since my grandma’s death.

I think I am going to go and read some more Wonder Woman while listening to some jazz music. Thank you for reading. Peace Out, World!!!

Monday Morning Rambling

Good Morning, World!!! If you read my first to blogs of the day, you would know that I had trouble sleeping. Hell, I got no sleep whatesoever but that didn’t stop be from trying to do what I needed to do to take care of myself.

Taking care of myself during sleepless nights looks different each night however there is some common ground; DBT skills. Using my DBT skills helps me with various things in my life such as not sleeping.

One of the skills of the things I did last night was read. I read a History text book. I am finding it quite interesting. I love history. It was one of my favorite subjects in school.

Another thing I did last night was some art. I painted. On some of my paintings I also did some collaging as well.

As I read and did art I listen to music which helped me. Music helped by soothing me. I love music.

Thank you for reading. Peace Out, World!!!

Nightmares Suck Sh*t

Good Morning, World!!! I woke up from a nightmare that ended up being a screaming nightmare. Screaming so loud my neighbors got worried and called the police. The police came and did a welfare check on me. They showed up and I informed them of what happened and they left.

Since they left I’ve been reading. I have been reading a History text book as well as the fantasy novel I’ve been reading for a while now. I was hoping I could go back to sleep with the reading however I have been unable to do so. I am hoping that blogging would be helpful.

Thank you for reading. Peace Out, World

Tough Evening/Night

Hello, World!!! I’m having a tough go at it at the moment. I’ve been dealing with that fact the my grandma is in hospice care and I’m attempting to process it through journaling and blogging. It appears to be helping.

Reading a history text book and watching TedTalks about history. I feel like I can get some sort of education regarding history. Its helping with getting my mind off of things and wish my family and I weren’t dealing with all this but its the reality we are dealing with.

Reality can suck shit but it can be wonderful at the same time. For example my grandma told me today if I don’t go to my job interviews and Tuesday and Wednesday that when she goes, she will haunt me to the day I die and then haunt me after death. I got to love my grandma. She’s facing death yet she is still using her humor.

Thank you for reading. I hope everyone has a good evening/night. Peace Out, World!!!
