9-24-2017 Snippets

No long time see here! I know I haven’t written an article for the blog or any blogs for that matter and I apologize for keeping many of you in the dark waiting for a new article from me. How are you all guys and women? I hope that all of you are doing well, any of you who were affected by hurricanes whether it be Harvey, Irma, Jose and now Maria I hope that all of you are safe! Hurricanes are no fun, it is one of the most powerful weapon harnessed by the mother’s nature who had attacked several islands and mainland of the United States such as Texas or Florida. Now the Hurricane Maria recently attacked Puerto Rico and a few of islands around which have caused catastrophic for these people as they have lost hundreds of homes and most of the islands have no electricity. My heart goes out to you all who were hit by the hurricanes and for these who are in path of the Hurricane Maria please be safe! I am doing A-Okay myself because we have lost one of our beloved family members on September 10th this year, we weren’t expected of this at all as it happened in blink of an eye and that is why I didn’t feel like writing an article or to do anything for a couple of weeks as I am grieving due to the loss of my beloved. I truly appreciate all the emails, messages from some social media, comments on my personal Facebook account which is only privatized for family and friends. Not only that I also made a post on my public Facebook page about this, received a lot of responses from the people as well which I greatly appreciated for that along with some on Twitter and I am overwhelmed by amazing responses that I have gotten from you all! These kindly messages that I have gotten from you eased a bit of the stress that I had especially on that day when it had happened and a few days after.

Victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas

My thoughts are with you all, I know I have wished you all well on social media several days ago but I feel that I want to maximize my areas in reaching out to the people especially who are victims by one of the worst hurricane named Harvey by writing this article for both of my blog on here and over at JoshuaBSullivan.com. I have some people who reads my message on social media such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Google plus and others but my blog has the most readers than these so this is the reason I feel the need to do this so to make sure that my wish and my thoughts are received by everyone that I have. I have looked at horror pictures and videos all over of the hurricane Harvey that hit the people of Texas in several cities. The hurricane Harvey did not defeat you of these people who is victims of Harvey, you stand still bravely through the Hurricane Harvey and survived by defeating one of the worst hurricanes in the United States. Yes, unfortunately there are numbers of people who’s the hurricane Harvey took lives and my heart ache for the families of these people whose life were taken by the Harvey. I have already donated funds to some organizations including Texas Association of the Deaf who is responsible to make sure that the deaf and hard of hearing people who were affected by the hurricane Harvey to have some relief as there are many of them who lives in a couple of the cities that the Harvey hits the hardest. If you have some money that you are looking for someone or an organization to donate please look below for the links where you can do so which they will be grateful for them even if they are just one dollar, five dollars, ten dollars, twenty dollars or thirty dollars because every little thing can mean a lot to them.

Happy Mother’s Day 2017

I would like to personally wish the most important person on this earth, my mother a very happy mother’s day and that I am very thankful for everything she has done for me past these thirty years since she has become a mother to an only child which is myself – a child that thinks the world of her and looks up to her since this child opened his eyes for the first time after birth.

My mom has never stops her persistence in taking care of me for over thirty years and two months to make sure that I have everything that I need especially the essentials. Such as the roof over me, air conditioning and heating to keep myself cool or warm during both summer and winter; clothes on my back and foods on the table for me to eat everyday. Taking me to my doctor appointments to make sure that I am taken care of, this includes having to take me to Cincinnati to a children hospital every 2-3 years until I become a teenager, never leaving the hospital every time that I had to be admitted such as when I had undergone one of the most major surgery I have had ever went through, my back from my neck to my tailbone and when I broke my femur in half in my right leg my mother drove me to the hospital herself because she wouldn’t want to waste another minute for the ambulance. I have never truly see any mothers that takes as this tremendous care and responsibility without any hesitation for a child as my mother do for me.

Inactivity and The Future

How are you all guys and women doing?! I know I haven’t written a blog since over a bit month ago, as last time I wrote an article were on the first of last month in April and lately I have started getting more silent on social media as well. This is why I have decided that I should blog, so that I let you all know that I am doing just fine and that I would also like to apologize for my inactivity for the past of a month which is a bit unusual I know especially that some of you know that I never could stand to not blog at least more than one week or two weeks at most. There are a few reasons that I have not wrote an article for past a month, which a few I will share and the other few that I prefer to not. Unfortunately, over the past month I nearly lost interests in blogging and I know that is a bit unlike of me to say that especially that I have kept doing so ever since the year of 2007. In August will marks tenth years since I have started a blog with JoshiesWorld which is my first blog in public and it will not be my last because I will continue blogging with JoshiesWorld for the rest of my life unless something happens to the internet or being hit by EMP that knocks out the electricity which I hope that never will happen. Honestly, the brand JoshiesWorld weren’t meant to be used for blogging because that brand name is used in many ways to identify myself and what I see hence my nickname is Joshie while involving myself in the world for everybody to see my thoughts, my perception and whatnot. I use JoshiesWorld as whole, whether it be blogging, videos, social media and whatnot; even with JoshiesWorld Gaming that I uses to live stream my gameplay on YouTube Gaming or Twitch.

Turning 30, Happy 30th Birthday!

Happy 30th birthday to, can you guess whose birthday today? Moi! I have just turned thirty (30) years old, it feels like I am eighty years old or somewhere around that age and becoming thirty years old is a milestone which some calls it real adulthood. Some people sees eighteen or twenty-one years old is the age that they enter the adulthood, which it may be true that becoming twenty-one years old is becoming an adult but truly an adulthood? I don’t see that way as I went through it obviously, I never felt or really recognized as a fully adult when I turned twenty-one years old as a lot of people have told me that I am young and some children thinks that becoming eighteen is to be an adult – not true. What really happens when turns eighteen is that you are given some privileges, being able to buy some tobaccos and to be able to make your own choice for what you want to do with your life. But becoming adult? No, at least not here in the United States because you won’t get full freedoms and full controls of your life especially from your parents which I have learned that the hard way after finding out that my so-called father went behind my back to file a guardian custody over me without my knowledge or my permit but thankfully I can provoke it only after I found out about it. Court didn’t even inform me anything about that so I was clueless for a while until I went to the court-house to ask for a copy of my birth certificate at the age of nineteen I believe and that was when I found out that I have guardianship over me by my father so I at once went to the court-house to demand that the court to shred the guardianship papers that my father filed on me so judge did with ease.

Deaf… And Hard of Hearing

The other day a well-known Deaf woman worldwide names Ella Mae Lentz made a vlog about why do some of the people, as she says especially the leaders of the Deaf community often would use the labels such as Deaf and Hard of Hearing altogether instead of just only using Deaf as a label instead of “Deaf and Hard of Hearing”. Before I get into it, Ella Mae Lentz is known to be one of most vocal activist and she has a solid reputation for advocating the best education for all the Deaf children here in the United States of America. Nobody and nothing will ever take that away from her, she has done a lot of things for the Deaf community in that area and, she is known to be one of vocal when it comes to American Sign Language too along with Bilingual-Bicultural education for the Deaf children. There is several more that can to be added to the list for what she has done, what she does for the Deaf community especially for the Deaf children and so forth – nonetheless, she is a role model to a lot of the Deaf people. As I said earlier, she decided to make a vlog in American Sign Language as she always has done so for several years, about why some people decided to use the labels “Deaf and Hard of Hearing” and that they should only just use “Deaf” instead. That vlog reached all over on social media, especially on both Facebook and YouTube but mostly on Facebook since it had several shares. Her vlog titled is what is “Hard of Hearing”? Her vlog has angered some of the people, also some of the people agreed with what she said in the vlog and her vlog became a controversial overnight.
