My Go to Wellness Tools When Things are Either Going Well or Not so Well & Sometimes in the Middle

Hello, World!!! Things haven’t had been very good lately but I’m handling them okay. I lost my new job because I wasn’t the right fit and I agree. It turned out to a be mutual agreement and “considered a lay off.” This lay off I’m okay with. The first lay off I wasn’t okay with it due to the fact of how it was handled.

I am putting in applications and going to interviews in the career of my choice as a peer specialist. I have also been applying to old employers I tolerated even the ones that were overnight or twelve plus hours long. Having a job helps me a great deal.

Even though things may not be going so well my cat, Billie has been a huge help. Hell, he is a huge help when things are both going well and not so well. Having an animal around had been quite helpful for me.

Another thing I have found helpful in both the good times and not so good times is volunteering. Volunteering at an animal shelter has been and continues to be quite rewarding. Helping cats find their furrever homes and people a new family member in a cat is one of the best feelings in the world.

Something I have started to do is to start doing math. Specifically, basic math and pre-algerbra. I’m doing this to help me if I get too emotional as well as to keep my math skills up. Having basic math skills is something every adult should have.

Another thing I am taking up is latch hook. I figure taking up a hobby latch hook would be helpful when thing aren’t going so well and even when they are going well.

Of course I’ll still be doing art. Specifically coloring. I am coloring a poster for my mom. She likes that type of thing. She is dealing with cancer and the treatment that goes along with it. Plus her birthday is tomorrow.

I don’t have much more to talk about. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

A Post for My Site Impaired & Blind Readers

Happy Friday. World!!! Today was the last post for Everyday Inspiration. Tomorrow I start one of the photography courses from WordPress’s Blogging University. I just want to let my site impaired and blind readers that I will be posting photos. I will adding captions to the photos and am hopeful that you have computer that can enlarge the photo’s for you. I just wanted to give you heads up because I love taking photo’s and sharing them but I also don’t want you to feel left out if you are unable to view the photos. I hope I don’t hurt any feelings by doing this course.

Everyday Inspirations; Day 15: Take a Cue from Your Reader

In an earlier “assignment” I was suppose to ask what would you like to blog about more or what topics. I didn’t ask because I either didn’t get a response or the response would take too much of my time looking up that topic. I usually take my cues from comments and the like people do as I know that is something to continue to keep writing about.

Up Way Too Early on a Saturday

Good Morning, World and Happy Weekend!!! I woke up at three thirty three this morning, Seattle time for no fucking reason. On that note if you regularly read my blog you know I have signed up for WordPress’s Blogging University free courses. Something I do is I sign up for them and let them build up to at least five assignments so I could do them at once so I could schedule them. I do this with a purpose of if I can’t blog for a while you keeps you the reader interested. Also, I hope it brings in new readers or readers who haven’t read my blog in a while.

So, I worked on Everydaynspiration post and am waiting on the last three assignments for this course so I can write them and schedule it. I also worked on the first six Developingyoureye l course and did the first six assignments and up waiting on the last four assignments for this course. Each course only sends out one assignment a day so now I’m up to date on two of the four courses I can finish them as the assignments show up in email. Then that way I can focus on the last two courses and schedule them as well. I as a blogger want to make sure I keep you the reader interested. Of course I will write unscheduled blog post like this one as I don’t want my blog to bore people.

I think I should get going as I think my cat is trying to tell me its time to go back to bed. Thank you for reading blog. Have a great weekend. Peace Out, World!

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.

Everyday Inspiration; Day 9: Writing & Not Writing

Hello, World!!! To write or not to write is very dependent on the day as was as the time and what is going on in my life at the moment. For example there are times I like to go out to eat and take my laptop with me to writer. I sadly was not able to do that when we had the not so lovely pandemic of Covid-19 which is sadly still around. I do some of my best writing when I eat in a restaurant and Covid-19 prevent me from doing that but that’s okay as I found other ways to write or not to write.

When I comes to blogging I either write in my bedroom or my recliner if my cat Billie doesn’t want to sit on my lap. I also like to blog out doors as it can give me similar inspiration like blogging at a restaurant does.

As far as not writing, sometimes my cat can get in the way but I am more than okay with that. Other reasons for not writing is due to work or my mental health is acting up. As far as blogging outside it is all dependent on the weather out side. Seattle is known to have gloomy weather days which sucks but I’ve learned to deal with it.

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!!!

Everyday Inspiration; Day 8: Reinvent the Letter Format

In all honesty this is going to be a short and brief post because if feels like it is having me reinvent the letter or write a letter to someone who I don’t want to write one to or worse write one to someone who passed away. I don’t feel like rewriting a letter to someone who is dead or so to someone who might not give a fucking shit. That’s all I have to say about that.
