Snippets & Stories

How has it been going with you all? I hope that everything is all well with you all! As for me, all is well except that I am suffering with no internet for several hours now since this early morning and only theory I have for the internet not having any connection is that today is the coldest weather we have had so far this year as it is about 10 degree outside so I suspect that for some reason their cable or their system doesn’t resist the frigid cold that well. Unless there is a car accident somewhere down the road, but I am certain that there isn’t because I still have television and not only that I also have no internet connection on my cell phone, so it isn’t just my broadband internet that is down but also my cellular data is down too. That means that I absolutely have no internet whatsoever, from broadband internet to cellular data and this is frustrating me because usually at this time of the day I would be watching something on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime for few of hours before I head out to bed, so it is screwing with my daily routine. Since I have no internet whatsoever, I figured that I would might as well write an article as a draft and wait for the internet to come back to publish this article so to give me something to do while the internet is out but I hope that whatever is causing all-out internet will be solved within’ an hour or two as that would be near my bed time so I can watch an episode or two on one of these streaming services. I am wondering what cause this, an all-out internet from broadband and the cellular data at once? If you have an answer or theory to that then please leave a comment below so I know what is going on next time if that is to happen again which I hope that never will happen again after this but almost nothing is a guarantee.

Merry Christmas 2017!

Hey you all! This is Joshie writing here, there is nothing more than me wanting to tell you a very Merry Christmas and so Merry Christmas to you all! ‘Tis the season that every one of us cherish with our family and friends which is the most important thing about Christmas Eve and Christmas Day! Christmas isn’t the only thing that we celebrate with our family and friends, we also celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ! Nothing is more fun than the Christmas tradition that we carry through many generations of ours, opening Christmas presents and have vast amounts of foods for us to pick to put on our plates until our stomach cannot take them anymore! I can remember how excited I would get when the Christmas day arrives at age of a child, looking forward to celebrating Christmas with the family and open the presents besides the Christmas tree that we decorated while being surrounded my family. It was one of these moments that I treasure more than ever, as every Christmas I would visit my grandmother’s house on my mother’s side and seeing the grounds that was nothing but tons of snow. Spending several hours from early afternoon until it was dark out, spending my time with my grandparents, my mother, my aunt and my uncles with my grandmother’s poodle’s dog named Midnight. First thing we would start the day with a chat, after that we would fill our plates with foods which usually were Turkey and the other Thanksgiving foods but that time with some eggnog! After eating, some of us would sit back watching some television while having a chat with others, some of us would be passed out (I was among one of some who usually passed out) and wait for our stomach to settled down from being so full due to eating so much of foods on Christmas day then we would start unwrapping the presents that we gifted each other. After unwrapping the presents, we had so much joy and happiness as the sunset approaching me and my mother would depart ourselves from my grandmother’s home to our home. When we arrived at home that night, our friends would either visit, phone us and chat with me through online when we had a dial-up internet with a very old windows 98 computer.

No long time see you since I last wrote an article, on fourth (4th) of this month November! But I am back to write another article, snippets article once again and I have a couple of topics that I would like to share my thoughts on. Before I go ahead with this article, I must ask how all of you are and how was your Thanksgiving yesterday?! Did you have a great feast?! Thanksgiving holiday always give us people a good excuse to stuff our stomach with a lot of foods because usually on Thanksgiving we get to have all kinds of foods that we only see once a year especially in numbers of foods that is being served and a great excuse for some people to take a power nap because turkey always makes us sleepy after stuffing our faces with it. Thanksgiving is not only an excuse for a feast but also a good excuse for family and friend’s gatherings especially in numbers as well – we had over 14 people under our roof yesterday for Thanksgiving which broke the record of how many people we had for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, they weren’t mine and my mother’s family as they were Chad’s family; Chad is my mother’s boyfriend for close to twenty years. Mine and my mother’s family are no longer here with us as they have passed away so only family that carried on is both of us which is great because we still have each other so that is what I am very thankful for.

Here I am back writing another article, I wasn’t even sure if I was going to write one or not because I am not really in the mood to write one but seeing that I have nothing else to do so I decided that I might as well make a new blog post and get done with it. I don’t even have the list of topics that I would like to talk about because it’s blank now, for a few weeks I didn’t think of anything interesting that I would like to write about, so I am pretty much swinging it as I type this article and hopefully this brain of mine comes up with a topic or so on its own for me to write about. You might as well say that I am blabbing here, because I am and let’s see how that turns out for the both of us!

Like I said above, I am swinging it here as I type so that mean that 50/50 chance that the topics may be interesting and may not be interesting since I am writing this article unprepared. I am usually prepared because often I would have at least a couple of topics on a note that I update on a weekly basis that I would like to write for my blog when I have the chance or when I am in the mood to do so. Now that being said, I will go ahead and begin here but remember that if there are some topics that you would like for me to share my opinion or thought on you can always send me some suggestion for topics that you would like for me to add the next one.

Story of My Love for Drums by Uncle

There are some of you know this but there are many of you don’t know this. I will share one story about myself, along with some inspirations, so that should be interesting for you to read. 😛

Many years ago, I was just a kid who have many wild ideas ranging from wanting to be wrestlers to be a police officer. Every day I would visit my grandparent’s house over in Williamson, where the heart of the family was before they left this earth but nonetheless, when I visited I would often be sitting on the main couch as they had two couches and only one couch that sits in front of television. The other couch is used as a bed. Like I said, the heart of the family meaning my entire family on my mother’s side so my uncle, my grandparents, my aunt and my mother with a puppy named Midnight.

Hey you all! I know I haven’t blogged anything in a very long time, the last time I blogged was last month on 28th in September about the people takes a knee in sports along with my opinion on it and you can find it here. I noticed that I am not as motivated to blog this year and last year as well since in the end of last year was when I reduced my activity in blogging due to a few reasons. One of these reasons was that I am aging, and my body isn’t what it was used to be so it’s a bit hard on me especially with disabilities I have. The combination of severe disabilities and the aging isn’t a good thing, it is painful. I know, it’s life and all that but with disabilities or illness while aging is not fun. While I am not blogging, most of the times I am usually either watching tons of television shows on streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, HBO and Starz so at least I am entertained. Mentally, I am doing good though and physically is what limits me in my activities now. Every time I tried to write an article, I would be already exhausted and so would be my body which can be frustrating at times, so I decided to find a method where I could at least keep writing an article because I love news or media industries – they are my passion. But now I can at least get an article going thanks to Microsoft’s OneNote, every time I found something interesting or thought of something I would open the OneNote and make a draft of different articles so that I can only write for each topics that I have on my list instead of writing the entire article on same day when my list of topics were getting too long. Definitely saved my energy, so that I wouldn’t exhaust myself while being already exhausted as much as I would if I am writing an article in one day instead of writing what I need or want for each topics then close the application as it has auto-saving feature which is a plus for me.
