fortune

I’ve had two friends on TV shows get blessed in a big way. One friend was on “Ellen.” She was nominated for a segment and was given a nice chunk of cash. Another friend was on “Wheel of Fortune.” He competed, figured out the final puzzle and also won a nice chunk of cash. I’ve…

On Twitter I followed a few media folks, writers for publications or similar, thinking I would get some insights on topics that wouldn’t be published in articles. Turns out I learned that some of them are incredibly mean, judgmental, and self-righteous. Perhaps I’m hypocritical for saying so, because I often find that the thing I…

crying

crying

Growing up I thought crying was a bad thing, because it indicated grief or hurt. And it usually does. And for most of my life it usually was the reason to cry. I also thought crying was for babies. Did I cry much as a teenager? I don’t remember, but I do remember being angsty…

the fall

This week the weather was summery, with highs in the 80s. It’s already September. On Monday I was thinking how long until the weather changed and then the next day the highs were in the 70s. The weather has changed. The kind of change where in LA you can wear shorts or not. Wear a…

All real people, families with children and/or pets or single parents or single people. So many have lost everything. You lose a lot…

gratitude

Recently I’ve been in a bad mood, being crabby, grouchy, whiny, pouty, sullen. It’s not an unfamiliar place, but I don’t like being in that place as much as I used to. Mostly because I’ve experienced joy and happiness and I like those feelings more, even if those feelings don’t always last as long as…

hole-y denim

hole-y denim

A trend in denim jeans is having holes in them. Depending on your age, you may immediately think of the 80s-90s where holes in jeans were cool, just like big hair. I never got into the trend of holes in jeans unless it was made naturally through normal wear and tear. Plus they cost more…

charity: water

charity: water

Today I checked on my fundraising campaign for charity: water.¬†What a surprise I found! My goal of raising $450 was met yesterday! It really stumped me, yet why was I stumped? Why did I start the campaign if I felt as if it could not be done? Perhaps I wanted to see what could be…
