November 7, 2018: Elections & NaNoWriMo progress

Election Day 2018 is over. So emotional in many ways. I hope Beto O’ Rourke runs again for Texas in 2020. Many people are starting to pick up the chants ‘Beto for President’! We all know that the ball is in his court. My NaNoWriMo progress is coming along. I’m still unsure which direction myContinue reading “November 7, 2018: Elections & NaNoWriMo progress”

November 3, 2018: NaNoWriMo goal

So relieved for the weekend! This month I took on a new writing activity, so it calls for managing my time more productively. I still can’t believe that I took on a third writing activity, yet I feel like I’m doing great with maintaining this journal for 2018, and my poetry blog. Having another writingContinue reading “November 3, 2018: NaNoWriMo goal”

November 2, 2018: Important Decision

In a few days, it will be Election Day. We’re halfway through the presidential term, so we can’t vote in a new one (unfortunately)! We can elect the people that will control both the Congress and Senate. This is an important decision, since the fate of progressive laws is on the line. Sadly, there isContinue reading “November 2, 2018: Important Decision”

November 1, 2018: Books and Family Celebrations

Halloween is over, yet it doesn’t mean that the ‘spooky’ theme needs to be put away. I’m one of those people who sticks to eccentric, dark things no matter the time of year. Some of the new books out there sounds amazing to explore really soon. Right now I’m reading ‘After the Quake’ by MurakamiContinue reading “November 1, 2018: Books and Family Celebrations”

October 31, 2018: Between the Worlds

Halloween is usually the best holiday, since it’s an amazing time to dress up as a different personality, and be at one with the paranormal. It’s said that Halloween is the time where the veil between the living and dead is thinnest. While I don’t run my life by following superstitions and paranormal activity, IContinue reading “October 31, 2018: Between the Worlds”

October 24, 2018: Book Progress and Pumpkins

I’m halfway done with ‘Daughters of the Lake’. The historical accounts of past generations is woven so well into the modern perspective of the story. I appreciate a good ghost story. I brought in my second pumpkin for work this morning. The first pumpkin didn’t hold up very well. It was carved, and it beganContinue reading “October 24, 2018: Book Progress and Pumpkins”

October 21, 2018: Birthdays and Reading Progress

I spoke to my aunt and uncle for a little while today. It’s their birthday, and each person is going through a significant change in life (one transitioning into a career change, the other readying for retirement). I offered my input as to where to seek information for a career shift. It’s understandably overwhelming, butContinue reading “October 21, 2018: Birthdays and Reading Progress”

October 17, 2018: Shifting to Autumn

When Autumn truly arrives, it’s memorable. It reminds you of this change the second you walk outside, and the wind cuts through the fabric of your clothes. You remember the change every evening, when the sun slips into the horizon a couple minutes earlier. It brings out special celebrations; people dressing up for Halloween, familiesContinue reading “October 17, 2018: Shifting to Autumn”

October 16, 2018: Snoopy in the Halloween Spirit

I enjoy taking photos of my Itty Bitty Peanuts collection. They hold a special place in my heart. Ever since I was a little girl I enjoyed everything about Peanuts. I owned many books on the series, and watched every show about the Peanuts characters whenever they came on television. When Hallmark came out withContinue reading “October 16, 2018: Snoopy in the Halloween Spirit”

October 14, 2018: Pumpkins and Walking Dead

Today I relaxed and worked on my classroom pumpkin. At work we were each given a pumpkin to decorate by the end of the week, so since I’m always busy doing a million things at work, I took care of it here at home. I chose a sinple outline: a cat gazing up at aContinue reading “October 14, 2018: Pumpkins and Walking Dead”
