Snippets & Stories

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.

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.

How are you doing today? I hope that all of you are doing very well, I am doing well myself although I have been very busy lately and I am getting a bit more excited that the summer is coming to end because if you recall in a few of articles that I have written a while back that I am a big fan of winter. Because of the snow and the cold weather if its average temperature for cold such as 20-30 degrees because if under that then it would become somewhat intolerable for me. Not only that, while I do love snow but I don’t like when they get to the point that we would be stuck for a long time or on these days when we have an appointment with the doctors of ours and whatnot but if it’s snowed in on the days that we are not needed somewhere then that is what I am all for as long as we don’t lose electricity. Did you all enjoyed your summer so far? We only have about a month before the temperature will start drops drastically especially in the last weeks of September to first week of October unless the mother’s nature isn’t ready (climate change). I know I haven’t written a snippets article since a few weeks ago, mainly because I didn’t have much of topics on my list to share my opinions on and over these weeks I have written some topics that comes to my mind slowly until I feel that I have enough of them to write a snippets article.
