Motives have a lot to do with all that you do in your life. You have to be motivated to do things in your life. Enemies have a motive to harm you in every way possible. Throughout the world people help the homeless and is a good motive because they want to help those in need. She often wonders what motivates people to be heartless, and uncaring to the hurtful things they do to others in the world. People like this are usually only concerned about themselves and not thinking about how the other person is feeling about the situation at hand. Everyone has motives that have some type of impact on their life. What they do to lessen that impact is up to them. If you do not have the desire to make a difference in your life and you do not ask for help from others you have no one to blame but yourself. There are plenty of people who have it worse off that you do and you have to remember that you are not owed anything in this world. You have to work for it if you want it to happen in your life. No one is going to give you anything that you want but yourself.

Types of Motives

There are many different types of motives in this world the motive to murder, rape, steal, drugs, alcohol, embezzling, extortion, and the list could go on and on throughout the world these things are happening and the people doing these things have only one thing on their mind themselves. Sometimes there are problems within the persons brain that causes these types of actions. Most of the time these actions are carried out by games, depression, anxiety, childhood issues, tumors, and many other things. Drugs are the most common form of violence because once you are hooked on the drug you lose control of your thoughts, and actions. Being impaired by these drugs can cause you to do things that you would normally not do if you were not impaired by the drugs. Games that children, teenagers, and adults play for the amusement allow the person to think that it is okay for them to do these types of things because they are stuck in the fantasy world. They play these games for hours, and days on end without stopping. This changes the way that your brain is thinking and reacting to things in the real world because they are in the mindset of the game.


Everyone judges people in this world you are judging them on how they react, how they talk, and many other things because you want to protect yourself and your family from harm. Who knows how people are  going to react in this world you could say something and it makes them go insane. You could do something that they do not like and they could go off the wall. You could deny them a date and they would go on a killing spree. People in this world have too many issues going on in their life and you never know when someone is going to just pop and do something crazy. You have to judge people every day because you want to know in your mind that this person is not going to do harm. This is how people make decisions in their life to keep them safe from harm. You have to listen to your little voices in your mind that tell you this is something that you do not need to do.


Sometimes you think someone is not capable of doing harm but in retrospect they have done harm to someone in their life. There are many different types of harm throughout the world like mental, physical, verbal, bullying, and many other things that you could harm people with in the world or your life. It is crazy but at one point in everyone’s life at least one type of this has done harm to their personality, perspective, and outlook on their life. It is what you do with what has happened to you throughout your life when you finally break free from those harmful aspects. Many people take these things with them throughout their life without thinking about the consequences it will carry later on in their life. You have to make peace with the things that have happened and move on with your life because you are living for yourself or your family.

Tell Yourself

You are great! You can do anything! You will not live in fear! You will not succumb to their level! You will live a happy and fulfilling life! You are a wonderful person! You are your own boss! You do not bow down to anyone! You do not have to put up with anything that you do not want to in your life. You are meant for greater things in your life and you can accomplish anything that you put your mind to. You do not have to put up with someone telling you what to wear, where to go, what to do, and how you live your life. You have to stand up for yourself and what you want out of life.

The Morning Bliss

The Quiet Time

When you wake up in the morning, you start your day with coffee, and proceed to make breakfast for the family. The minute the coffee is done you sit in the Florida room to listen to the beautiful sounds of the variety of birds lurking throughout your yard. Do you wake up the children or just enjoy the peace and quiet for just a little while before you wake them up to start their day. The quiet time that you have is in the early morning, and in the late evening when the children are sleeping. In the early morning you can see the beautiful array of morning dew all around your yard that drops from the leaves of your plants in the garden. The elephant ears are growing and just an all-out beautiful scene.

Time to Start the Day

Well the quiet time is over because you finally have to wake the children up and get breakfast. Even though it is summer the children still have to do some type of studying because they lose too much when they are off the whole summer. Some people think that is wrong and that they should have the summer off to do whatever they want. However, when you homeschool there are many things that you can do with your children that allows them to learn. You do not have to sit still all the time during the summer because of the numerous places that you could take them for an outing.

Calming Serenity

It does not matter what part of the day you are in because the calming serenity of your slumber is what makes any part of your day the best. No one telling you some sob story about how their life is going downhill, they cannot make ends meet, and yet they still manage to buy the name brand things. Sometimes a little quiet time away from the world is healthy for your brain because of the things that you hear all day long. You eventually know more about the people around you than you should.  After a long day at work you return to your lovely home to enjoy the family time, and the serenity of the place that no one can invade.


When you sit around contemplating about your day, the things you talk about or the people that you meet throughout your day. Many people spend their day running around, eating out, going out with friends, and other things that make them happy. She spends her days off writing, working in the garden, planting flowers, building anything that she wants, and many other things. She loves to spend her off time writing, reading books, spending time with the family, and many other things that most people would not enjoy. People always want to talk to her about reality shows, sports, and many other things that do not interest her in the least. She would rather spend her time reading books, and widening her knowledge of history, science, literature, and anything else that she puts her mind to. Throughout the world there is a variety of things that you can learn about and many people do not like to learn about things that have happened over the years. They sure do not believe that it could happen again.


Throughout your life you have to make choices and if you make the wrong choices in your life the consequences of those choices can make or break you. You have to think logically about everything that you do in your life or you will not have anything to show for the hard work that you have put into everything that you have done. She knows that she has made some of the right choices in her life and secludes herself from others because she does not have much in common with people. She thinks logically, and thinks about everything that she does, buys, and thinks about the pros, and cons about what she is doing. She is teaching this type of information to her children because you have to be wise about the things that you do in your life if you want to have anything.

The Evening Slumber

The Start of Your Day

A beautiful summer day, when you arrive home from work you sit back and enjoy the beautiful array of flowers, your garden, maybe you sit down and watch a little television. Knowing that you have a house to clean, a yard to work in, and many other things that need to be done. However, when you get home from your long day you just want to sit back and take it easy for a little while. The sun is shining bright today and there is not much wind coming through. The coolest part of our yard is under our carport because the breeze that comes through is wonderful.

The Children at Work

The children working in the yard after pulling weeds out of the garden. The numerous blooms on the cucumber, squash, tomato, jalapenos, bell peppers, and zucchini plants give you a warm feeling that soon you will have vegetables from the hard work that you have put into your garden. The flowers in the front yard are bright with beautiful colors. Yellow, Red, and pink flowers all  around your home. Maybe you have a fire in the fire pit to start your night off in the right way. Depending on how the wind is blowing decides if you can so that nothing happens when you start the fire.

Admiring the Scenery

Watching the many vibrant colors of dragonflies as they fly around looking for food, a mate, or just someplace to take a rest. The sounds of the birds nesting in the beautiful heritage oak trees surrounding the road that you live on. The hawks in the front yard taking care of their young. The other morning as they were sitting in the Florida room the male hawk came flying through looking around to find some food for his young. On the way back to the nest after finding some food for the little ones you could see the female hawk tearing the meat off of the food for their young. An awesome sight for anyone to watch first thing in the morning as the sun is just rising over the trees.


The Illness that Took her life

Italo Calvino said: The more enlightened our houses are, the more their walls ooze ghosts. Describe the ghosts that live in this house: Image credit: “love Don’t live here anymore…” – © 2009 Robb North – made available under Attribution 2.0 Generic

At one moment in time this house had the love of time, until that dreadful day when everything went downhill. A single woman just living on her own after moving out of her parents house. On the search to find the true love that she has always hoped for within her life. She becomes ill with a disease that is incurable. She looses faith that she will never find the love of her life in time before the illness takes her to that beautiful place in the sky. She is not scared of death. She only hoped to find the love, romance, and compassion that everyone dreams about within their life. Someone to spend the rest of their life with before the illness takes full affect. The ghost that lives in this house is a kindhearted ghost that missed out on many things in life because of an illness that had no cure. Now, she will never find the true love that she wanted so badly before leaving this world.

More to come! It is a work in progress….

Evaluating Algebraic Equations

When we evaluate algebraic equations we substitute the variables with real numbers. When you know the value of the variables within the equation it becomes easier to find the correct answer that you are seeking.

For example: If you have an equation like w + c  when W = 8 and C = 9 you would replace the variables w and c with 8 and 9. You would then end up with 8 + 9 simple enough when you are just learning about algebra.

Another example would be 5xz if you put the numbers 8 and 9 into the equation you would end up with 5(8)(9); so in order to evaluate this equation you would first multiply 5 and 8 to get 40 then you would multiply 40 and 9 to come up with your final answer of 360.

Now, if y = 8 and t = 6 in the following equations what do you think the answer would be?

in y – t


in 8yt

By putting your numbers into the equation y – t you should come up with the equation 8 – 6 = 2; and in 8yt you should come up with  8(8)(6) = 64(6) = 384 you are just multiplying each of the numbers to come up with the end result.

Evaluating algebraic expressions is an easy concept to learn once you understand the variables, and insert the real numbers into your equation.

Here are some to evaluate

If a = 5, t = 7, c = 6, and d = 3

1. 6a + 9t

2. 8c + 6d

3. a3 + 7t

4. 8(a + d)

5. 15(c + a)

Another Great Year of Homeschooling

Just a bit of information to my reader’s! My children have passed mom’s exams and will head to the 10th grade next school year! They are excited and ready for the upcoming school year. It has turned out to be a long road but they did well.

Next, year they will be doing algebra II, Biology, Computer programming, American Literature, and History of the American Nation. Of course, they are all excited about all of the classes that they will take in the upcoming year.

A very proud moment to see that I have done my job as a mother, and teacher to my children. I am very glad that I chose to homeschool four years ago. It has turned out to be the best experience of my life.

Looking forward to the upcoming year as we learn more about a variety of things. I believe that the hardest part for them this year was English Literature however, they passed with no problems. I also learned quite a bit from teaching them in English Literature.

Algebra of course, they were surprised when I could solve the problem in my head without working it out on paper. They are getting to where they can do some problems like that but I told them that it takes time to be able to look at a problem and solve it without working it out.

Keep The Knowledge Flowing

Tammy Hopkinson, MBA

She is learning how to build her first webpage all on her own and learning the basics of developing your own webpage using Dreamweaver. For the whole world to see and possibly learn from the mistakes that she has made throughout the process. Of course, the process of learning everything that you need to know about coding will take some time to process the information. Therefore, she will give you some information about herself. She has just finished making her own resume. Although she is still trying to figure out a few things on how to publish to the world wide web. She will keep working with it and learning the concepts of coding, and building your own website.

Things that I have learned through coding!

  • She has learned that coding is not easy!
  • She has learned that it is going to take time!
  • She enjoys the fact that she is learning something new!
  • She loves the fact that she can learn new things to teach her children!
  • The new things that you can learn about coding!

Things that you did not know about or learned before! She loves learning about the new things that can spark her interests and the things that she would like to achieve in the upcoming months as she learns how to code! Coding can take time and she has learned that you cannot get frustrated with the things that you do not know about right now! it will take time to learn all the steps and processes that building your first webpage will take for it to be perfect! It will be a long process and she knows that it will take some time to learn everything that she needs to know about the various ways of coding.

What can you do with the concepts that you have learned

  • Learn more ways to use the different aspects of coding!
  • Teach what you have learned!
  • Enjoy the learning and teaching experience!
  • Tell your children that you can do anything that you put your mind too!

Keep the dreams alive within your children! The interesting aspects of coding are somewhat simple to learn however, she has the faith and drive to learn more about coding and the multiple aspects it entails. She is also looking forward to teaching her children the exact things that she is learning here in the midst of coding. Learning the things that you need to know during the entire process. Where to put things, pictures, images, and many other things to help you on your way to making a huge success out of yourself. You can learn anything that you put your mind to because it is something that you want to do to better your future.

When Your Mind Wanders

she sit here staring into the computer screen wondering what to type….she hears the children in the other room talking about a variety of things that she cannot hear completely what they are saying. she hears things hit the ground and hears them laughing and throwing things around what in the world is going on in there she wonders.

As she sits writing about a variety of things, she enjoys listening to the children have their fun in the other room. The sounds of them having fun is music to her ears because they enjoy every minute of the day. There is nothing more than to listen to your children having fun without the addiction of games, television or anything else that children have these days.

The feeling of not being able to write anything is driving her insane! Although she has written quite a bit in the last month at least one article a day it still is not enough. She only has a certain amount of time during the day to spend on writing. She writes more about her life in her journal than anything right now.

She needs to sit down and write articles for her blog, work on the finals for the children, and many other things that needs to be done. The more she writes about her life the more she sees that she has tons of information about her life in her journal. She is close to the 50,000 mark in her journal. You would not think that you could write that much about your life but it is possible to write more.
