Intro to Poetry; Day 2: Face

Today’s poem is about “faces” and I know the picture is of a skull but it has a face. I wanted to challenge myself with today’s poem. I name him Mr. Skull Face. I hope to keep you update on him one I start on him. The poem of him is below.

Mr. Skull Face

by Gertie

Mr. Skull Face is a cross stitch

that yet has to be started.

Once started and finished,

Mr. Skull Face will be a piece of work

and a piece of beauty.

Everyday Inspiration; Day 16: Mine Your Own Material

I never really understood this particular assignment and never did it and replaced it with another blog but just wanted that right now I wanted WordPress could be more descriptive in how they want certain things written about. I appears that my Everyday Inspiration blog post have been short and to the point or long winded.. Usually they are are more long winded. Only four more post after this particular post is down for Everyday Inspiration. I’m still planning on doing my other course even if work gets in the way.

Everyday Inspiration; Day 13: Play with Word Count

In all honesty, I really didn’t want to do this particular assignment and was planning to bash on the English teachers I had going to high school here in Washington. Despite the lack of English Education I received from the Bellevue School District in high school, I know they, the teachers tried or at least I hope they tied to the best of their abilities.

But that gave me another idea. An idea I actually remembered having to do with my two junior high (special education) teachers in seventh and eighth grades. It was required in California that ALL junior high and middle schoolers had to have some form of paper on word count. It was up to the teacher they would do it. I heard horror stories about kids needing to do 1,000 word essay’s. That freaked me out and it wasn’t even any of my teachers assigning that to me. Any way Special Ed English teachers had us do our word count papers on writing a certain type of poem known as a Haiku. I remember my first haiku I wrote in seventh grade. It was:

Fine I’ll Write It

by Gertie

Being forced to do

a number thing with English

paper does suck shit

I may have not been exactly what my teacher was looking for or principle for that matter, I still got an A+ on it as I did what I was asked to do and did it correctly. Plus it gave the teachers something to laugh about or at least that is what I was told. I did get best poem award for a seventh grader.

Billie Making an Amazing Announcement

Attention all, Billie has an awesome Announcement

This is very short post but WordPress informed Billie and I that today marks blogging twenty two days in a row. I think I’m getting my grove back in a way but Billie wanted to share the announcement with you all.

18 Days in a Row of Blogging

Good Afternoon, World!!! As of today, I have been blogging for eighteen days in a row as of today. Part of it because I started doing Weekly Plans on Sundays once again. My next hope is to do Weekly Check-Ins on Saturdays but I can use the excuse of doing courses WordPress puts on through Blogging University. I started by doing Everyday Inspiration which is a twenty day course. I also signed up for both of the Photography; Developing your eye one and two. Both courses are ten days each which equals twenty days. So that equals to forty days in a row. I also signed up of Intro to Poetry which is also a ten day course. If you add all the courses I’ve signed up for it equals to fifty days in a row. I also signed up for a five day course about commenting and intend to do the course in the middle the courses I am currently taking and/or signed up for.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciative from my end of things that you the reader, read my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Still Waiting on Blogging University Assignments

Good Morning, Word!!!! I am still waiting for the emails on the courses I am taking through WordPress. In fact they signed me up for a course I didn’t sign up for but I guess, I will try it out. Nothing will come out negative from it as I expect I will learn from it.

I was hoping to start one of the courses today but I’m not sure that is going to happen and I think I am okay with that at the moment. Part of the reason why I am doing the blogging is so I can have some sort of structure in my life since I am currently unemployed due to being unemployed from being laid off.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader, read my blog as if you didn’t read my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Reading, Blogging & Art

Good Morning, World! It is seven in the morning Seattle time. I sadly did not sleep very well last night. I did sleep a little bit but when I was awake I cuddled with my cat, Billie as well as read a little bit. I also did some art work as well. Actually I colored. I didn’t color as much as I wanted to due to the lack pf pencil sharpeners so I ordered some off of Amazon.

On that not note, today is going to be a day of self care. I already took a shower and shaved my legs. Now I am in clean pajama’s. My plans to do self care is to blog.. I plan on blogging about inspiration writing, photography and poetry as well self care which includes sleep. I didn’t sleep very well last night. I also plan on reading a few chapters in a book I am reading.

I do not have much more to talking about it in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Another Attempt to Regularly Blog

Good Morning, World!!! Or at least it is still morning in the Seattle area. I am writing this blog to start blogging on the more consistent basis. I am doing this so I can keep you the reader not so bored with my blog and keep you interested.

I am planning on doing this by doing WordPress courses such as the photography course as well as the poetry course and the everyday inspiration course. I’ also planning on doing my weekly plans as well as my weekly check in’s. I’m hoping this will keep you interested in reading my blog.

I do not have much more to talk about in this particular blog. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It means the world to me that you read my blog. Again thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!!

Too Many Thoughts Running Through My Mind

Good Afternoon, World from Seattle, Washington. Right now I have way too many thoughts running through my mind. I have been having many ups and downs this past week.

First I have my last day at my previous job due to being laid off. Then I have a job interview and two days later find out I got the job. I am taking the job and start at the end of the month. On that note I don’t think it’s the best job for me but it is something in my career of choice.

The day after I found out I got the job, I found out my mom has lung and they are still doing test regarding it including test on her memory loss. I’m hoping it’s not a brain tumor but will find out when an MRI and other test are done. But I’ve already told you this.

It just appears that when things get a bit overwhelming I tend to sign up for free courses WordPress does. I usually sign up for two or three of them and start one and sadly don’t finish them. Well, I signed up for four of them and it is my hope with what’s going with my mom’s health and me starting a new job that I actually start and finish them. I guess it’s a goal to help me get through both the good and bad stress I’ve been dealing with.

Speaking of stress, my cat, Billie Dean, has been helping me a great deal with the stress I have been dealing with. I love my cat, Billie so much. The thing I don’t understand is how Billie can love me so unconditionally. Hell, any pet has unconditional love.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated on my end that you the reader, read my blog. In fact if it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. So, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart once again for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!
