Good Evening, World!!! I am going to be posting more about the conference I went to earlier this week. I will be mostly talking about the people who are very active in the the recovery movement here in Washington. One of which is a local politician as a state Representative in Lynnwood. (I want to make it clear that when I write about both these individuals especially the politician that I am NOTin her district nor am I asking you to vote for her. I am just informing you of how awesome of an advocate she and the other person I will be talking about are.)
Awesome Mental Health Advocates: Heather & Lauren
The picture above are two extremely awesome mental health advocates. Heather is the Director of the King County Collation at Washington Recovery Alliance while Lauren is the Executive Director at Washington Recovery Alliance as well as a state Representative for the 32nd legislative district in the Lynnwood area. Anyway, both Heather and Lauren are awesome advocates and speakers. They with the help of a handful of other people helped create a Recovery Day at a Seattle Mariners game and from my understanding from many people, it turned out to be a HUGE success. Heather and Lauren not only are example of what recovery looks like but help create ways to celebrate recovery like having a recovery day at a baseball game. Not just any baseball game but a Seattle Mariners game.
Seeing both Heather and Lauren at the peer conference earlier in the week was amazing as they are both two of the kindest women, I know and hope that someday I can be just a small portion of the advocates they are. If you ever have the chance to meet Heather and Lauren then you are in the presence of people who can help you advocate for others. Both are awesome speakers.
I don’t have much more to say except I am thrilled that I was able to see and talk with these two awesome advocates again. I want to thank you all for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciative from my end of things that you read my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope everyone has a great Friday. I also hope everyone has a great weekend. For those living in the United States, I hope you have a wonderful three day weekend. Peace Out, World!!!
Good Morning, World!!! It is just after two in the morning on a Sunday in my corner of the world. I am spending the night at my grandpa’s house. I am not feeling so well. I am thinking I might wake up either my uncle or my grandpa to take me to the hospital as my stomach is in knots. Actually, where my appendix is, is where it hurts like hell and I feel like I am going to vomit. I think I am going to cut this post short at wake up my family to take me to the hospital. Better safe than sorry when it comes to ones appendix.
On a side not the Mariners beat the Dodgers in the tenth inning. Just wanted to add something other than me not feeling all that well.
I sure get going and get to the hospital. My family will take me. I hope everyone has a better start to their Sunday than me. Have a great Sunday. Peace Out, World!!!
Good Evening, World!!! I know I recently just posted within the last hour or so. Most likely I post less than an hour ago but I am okay with that. I have a brain full of random shit.
Right now I am listening to the Seattle Mariner versus Los Angeles Dodger game on the radio. I am rooting for the Dodgers as I am originally from the Los Angeles area. I am hoping that the Dodgers win.
As I blog I am listening to the game however after I am done blogging I’ll most likely do some art as I listen to the game on the radio. Actually, I most likely will be coloring as I listen to the baseball game.
I think after the baseball game is over with I am going to read the fantasy book I am reading. I haven’t spent much time reading my novels as of lately and think its time to get back in the habit of it.
I should really get going so I can listen to the baseball game and color. Afterwards, I will read my fantasy novel.
Thank you so much for reading my blog. It is very much appreciated. Sorry for back to back post within less than an hour of each other. Have a good rest of your Friday. I hope everyone has a good weekend. Peace Out, Weekend!!!
Good Morning, World!!! I want to apologize to you my reader for not blogging as much. I have been struggling a great deal with my depression. My depression symptoms appear to have effected me severely enough that I haven’t been blogging.
Since my depression symptoms got in the way of blogging, I wanted to tell you about my 4th of July. Despite my depression symptoms acting up, I managed to attended the Mariner versus Angel game here in Seattle. I really enjoyed myself with the exception of having Mariner’s fans throwing things at me. Due to having things thrown at me, I received a ticket to another game. I am also happy to say that the Angels won the game.
As for watching fireworks, I watched them at home on the television as I wasn’t sure how Lil Gertie was going to react to them. Lil Gertie didn’t react all that well to the fireworks. She hid in my dirty clothes hamper which is in my closet. She meowed out fear a good portion while fireworks were going off.
Good Evening, World!! I just finished watching the Seattle Mariners play against the Los Angeles Angels. The Mariners swept the Angels in a three game series. I was sad to see the Angels loose because I am from Anaheim now living in Seattle.
I have been isolating all day and know that watching the baseball game on Facebook helped a great deal. I just need to not be isolating. I think I’m going to reach out to folks so I am not isolating.
Good Afternoon, World!!! I spent time with friends. We met at Red Robin and ate there. I had my usual, The Whiskey Bar-be-Que Burger. I love Red Robin and spending time with my friends.
We discussed what we were doing with our lives like we always do. We mainly discussed are careers and education. I discussed my job interview yesterday and how I feel that I nailed it. I hope I really get the job. One of my friends discussed her getting into the University of Washington (UW) school of Social Work to get her masters degree. She says I was her “inspiration” to get into social work.
We also discussed the baseball game we are going to this Friday. They are rooting for the Seattle Mariners while I will be rooting for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. I being from Anaheim will root for the Angels no matter what.
