An Amazing Experience


In February of this year I was able to participate in the SkillsUSA. Personally, this was the first time I have ever competed for something so I was a nervous wreck (lol). Throughout taking the Cyber security classes I have learned many things about the computers, and internet. We can all use this to our advantage and if you are creative enough you can accomplish anything you want. You can do anything that you put your mind to and know that you have accomplished something good. All competitions are fun and also a learning experience to see what other’s have done during the competition. For this being my first ever competition it was a pleasure participating in such an awesome event. However, I wished we could have gone to state but with COVID19 and Hurricane Sally they cancelled the competition.

SkillsUSA 2020

This was amazing to say the least to watch all the students who worked hard to achieve their goals. People take things for granted and do not appreciate the hard work of others. Cyber Security is an awesome field of study. Learning what the hackers are doing and finding ways to keep them out of your personal information. Everyone is constantly using some type of electronic device, and many people do not think about who is spying on them. The information is out in the world for everyone to see. People do not think about the amount of information that can be easily obtained with no problems at all. Learning about these issues is one that people are willing to learn and find out the process of how the hackers retrieve their information on anyone they choose. The best part of the whole experience with the class and the competition was well just about all of it. Forensics was also quite interesting to say the least. Learning how to dig deep into someone’s computer to find out just about anything you want to know about that person is scary to think about but that is also how they catch people.

Moving on with your future!


During the process of your life things do not always go your way. When you finally, grow up, get married, have children, and start a life of your own things change. Sometimes, you are not ready for the obstacles that come your way. People you love go onto a better place and leave the world behind with only the next generations to carry on their own. Leaving legacies behind and preserving traditions that are passed down throughout the years.  

People take many things for granted, and are never happy with their life. It is because they have nothing to live for and no desire to make things better in their life. You have to want to do better in order to get better with what is going on in your life.

You know when we turn on the television to watch the news there is nothing good on there most of the time. It is like a horror story unruffling  right before our eyes. No matter what time you turn it on there is always something bad happening. Now do not get me wrong you have to watch the news in order to stay current with what is going on in the world today. However, the news also hypes everything up to make people panic about anything.

Not a day goes by that she does not think about her mother with all the good, bad, and awesome times they had before she went away. Sometimes she sits around and talks to her mother like she was there with her listening to all the stories she had to tell about the happenings that go on in her life. Then she is reminded that her mother is watching her from above but with her in her heart.

It is saddening to her to know that she will never be able to hug, kiss, and wish her mother a goodnight because she has gone to that better place where she is not in any pain and not suffering from the disease that took her from her family so soon.

Changes in Life 


Fellow reader’s,

This year started out on a emotional roller coaster to say the least. The one thing you hope that never happens does happen. It has turned out to be a long recovery road with all that has happened. 

In January 2017, she lost her mother to cancer.  She has never felt so much pain in her heart as she does right now.  It has taken a toll on her in so many ways she cannot even begin to describe the pain and emotions that is going through her heart and soul. This is by far the hardest thing that she has gone through in her life. It is something that she would ever wish on anyone else. 

As the months go by she thinks about her mother all the time wishing she was here for her to talk to, and tell her about her life. The things that happens in her life she cannot tell her mother because she is gone. She can talk to her in spirit and maybe it would make her feel better. That feeling you have when you do something that you have seen your mother do and it gives you goosebumps because you know that she is watching you from heaven. 

It is the smallest things that you do like one night she was braiding her hair and she was almost done and started crying because it was the same way that her mother braided her hair. It is those moments when you think that all things are hopeless and you cannot move on with your life. However, when you have a family and responsibilities you have to get up and keep moving. Making sure you are taking care of yourself, and your family.  

You know in your life you have to be strong because people rely on you to make the right decisions. You have to make a decision in life when something like this happens on whether or not you are going to let it consume your every morsel of life. If She were to stop everything that she is doing on her life right now she would feel consumed by the emotions that fill her heart full of sadness. 

She has to keep moving, and taking care of the precious things in her life which is her family, her children, and her job these are things that will suffer if she falls into a deep depression of heartache. It is so hard not to fall into something like that because her mother meant the world to her. Her mother was a vibrant, loving, heartwarming, and all around great person who would do anything to help you through anything that you were going through. 

As the months go by it does get a little easier to deal with the fact that she is not here to talk to or call at the moment when you want to talk to her. However, the times that you need someone like your mother for advice on certain situations you find that she is not there for you to call. All her life she has been independent never relying on others for anything. During this difficult time in her life right now she does not know how she will make it through but she does know that she has to take it day by day. 

The holidays are just around the corner and the holidays are something that she lived so much. This is going to be the hardest year for her because she does not know how she is going to handle not being able to spend Christmas with her mother anymore. They say that the first year is the hardest to get through because it is a first for everything. She can understand that because it is hard doing some of things that she does in her life. Because it makes her think of her mother. 

You know people around you try to console you and try to tell you things will get better. However, you have to heal on your time and there is not much people can say that will take the pain away because you have to find peace within yourself.  She had to keep living for her family and make the best of things.  Never forget about her kit her and always remember the good times and the wonderful memories that they made over the years. Those are the moments that will help you through the pain.

Life in the Fast Lane


20160407_115638

Hello reader’s, she knows that it has been quite some time since posting anything on this blog. It is funny how life gets in the way of the things that you love to do. However, life is something that you have to take with a grain of salt. Throughout, our life things happen to where you cannot get things that you would like to do done. When you finally get to that point in your life where you have the things that you want out of life you can only try and reach for better things that will make your life better. It is hard to sit down and make time for writing when you have a busy schedule. Although, it is mostly procrastination that keeps you from doing the things that you should be doing to keep your audience interested in what you are writing about and keeping them coming back to read something else that you have written.

To be the writer you have to actually set time aside from your life to write about things that interest you and your reader’s. That is the main thing right there setting aside time from work, homeschooling, and life to write about what is on your mind. A few years ago she did not have any problems sitting down at her desk and writing about what was on her mind. However, the more recent years have become more wrapped up in work, and homeschooling her children to get them ready for the outside world. Keeping in mind that her main reason for writing was to give advice of things that have worked for her that could possibly help other’s in the world.

She has always loved to write and spent long hours working on a book that she has not even looked at since things in her life turned around for the better. She needs to realize that she can never publish a book without putting in the effort to getting it finsished and edited. Putting aside all the times that she laid around the house on her day’s off from work to enjoy the day. She could spend that time to write about things that maybe could help other’s in the world. You know when you work six days straight and homeschool in the afternoon grading papers, and making sure that they have done the required work that they were supposed to do you find that most of your time is spent doing the things that you have to do.  Sometimes that does not leave time for anything else like the things that you would love to be doing.

She spends most of her time working and spending quality time with her family. Taking on of her day’s off to just be lazy and not think about the things that she needs to be doing. It is making up excuses why she is not writing the things that she should because she just does not want to take the time to sit down at her desk and spend the time writing. So now, she needs to make the decision on whether or not she wants to keep the work going and spend the time each day to make sure that she sits down and writes. All it takes is actually sitting down at the computer and spending a little time writing about what has happened in her life to get her where she is today.

It is time to make that change in her life to keep her interested in the things that she loves to do and spend that little extra time in compiling some articles to publish throughout the week. She is excited about keeping her reader’s interested in continuing to come to her blog to read what she writes about and she will set time out of her day to accomplish what she started so many years ago.

Interpreting Your Life


You are right! You know when I started this blog it did not appeal to me at the time of starting it. However, since I have taken the notion to voice my opinions, thoughts, accomplishments, and many other things. I have realized that I do not follow through on some things in my life. I am finally taking charge of my life and doing things for myself. Writing is one of those things that I do for myself. If people do not like the things that I write about it does not matter. The only thing that matters is that I like the things that I write about on my blog. Thank you for sharing this post. 🙂

There are ordinary truths and eloquent truths. The ordinary truth is that some painters can garner six figures for their canvases while you probably can’t. The eloquent truth is that this abrasive fact need not alter your resolve to live an authentic life. The ordinary truth is that you will make mistakes and messes and fall short many times. The eloquent truth is that this need not defeat you, that you can keep trying and that you can keep kicking. When you marry these two ideas—willing yourself to matter and…

Writing A Book and Having Anxiety


You know when you sit down to write a book sometimes the thoughts just disappear from your mind. You know what you want to write about however, the words are stuck in a different place. Especially, when it is a book about your own personal trials, obstacles, triumphs, and everything else that your life has to offer. You want to talk about how you became the person you are today but somehow the words just will not come out. Of course, for the past few years you have written thousands of notes, scribbled in those corner’s of books about some of the things that you went through. However, putting them all together is the hardest part of all. You have written over 300,000 words in your journal about your life, accomplishments, goals, children, family, and many other things. She knows that the art of writing is to just sit and write what is on her mind, and worry about the rest for a later time.

She cannot believe that many people in this world turn out books like it is nothing. Of course, she knows it will take time for her to finish the book that she wants to write, and she will have to publish it herself. There are so many things that she wants to talk about in her book but she feels like it would just cause problems in the future. However, she believes that her achievements in this world would benefit other people around the world. How do you deal with the anxiety of wanting to write a book you know will bring out some unresolved feelings. She just keeps the words written in her journal for her own personal use, to keep the thoughts from clouding her mind. No one has read anything in her journal because she keeps it to herself. She carries on with her life as though nothing could bring her down, and she tries so hard to forget the obstacles that she had to overcome to get where she is today.

Writing a book is much harder than she imagined but she is not going to give up that easily. Maybe she needs to look at it from a different approach and see where she can go from there. Everyone around her tells her that she could write a book about anything that she wants too. That is the problem there are so many things that she wants to write about but the one that she is working on is always calling her to write. She started a template the other day while she was on vacation, and managed to write almost 10,000 words about a variety of things that she has overcome in her life already. She is determined to find her calling in the world. She writes her book in the voice of her character Amelie. The name just came to her one day while she was writing and it stuck.

Interesting prompt…..

Advice Ignored

Today’s prompt is courtesy of Writer’s Digest:

It’s your 18th birthday and, upon it, you parents deliver some pretty shocking news: You’re not really human.
