11-24-2017 Snippets

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.

I know I haven’t written a blog post for several days, more than a week now since the last blog post that I wrote were February 4th and I apologize for that. I just couldn’t find the time to write a blog post past several days, it has been time-consuming for me lately with other projects that I am working on and it is overwhelming to the point that I rarely find any time to sleep because the later I get the shorter sleep I will get. I barely find the time to keep up with the news that is going on around here in the United States and in other countries so that means I hardly had the chance to come up with some of the topics to share my opinions or my thoughts on news this past week. After the summer last year, my schedules became so messy to the point where I barely know what tasks I think I can complete and what tasks I must dismiss to complete some of other tasks especially the ones I consider more important than others. I believe that one or two blog posts earlier I have stated that I would try to write more blog posts than I have been since the summer last year, it is obvious that I have failed doing that and I will say this that I have no absolutely idea if I will be able to find the time to write blog posts on regular basis that I used to because of other projects that is taking a lot of my attention away but I will at least say this that I will try my darndest best to write a blog post once a week for the time being instead of three or four times a week that I used to. I just will have to try to figure out my schedule a bit better, this would mean that I will have to strategically figure my schedule as much as I can and hopefully I will be able to take myself back on the track to where I can at least write a blog post two or three times a week instead of once a week for the time being so I hope that you will bear with me for now until I figure something out.

I wasn’t sure if I could ever find the time to write an article for the blog but since I am writing this, obviously that means I have and the time I got is so little so I hope that I will be able to at least finish this article tonight and have it published before I head out to bed. Right now, it is at 2:05AM at very late night, I know I have not written an article for a few days because I have been very busy lately as I had a lot of things on my plate that I needed to do and still have a lot things on my plate that I need to do. I have tried to complete as much I could to clean off my plate, so that I could at least have a bit of room to breathe and have enough time to write an article for the blog without being stressed but that is not the case tonight as I am being somewhat stressed as I still have a lot of things that I need to do. I was thinking about to not write this article so that I could focus on some of other things that needs my attention but I felt that it wouldn’t be right to keep some of you hanging around a bit longer waiting for the next article by me and so here I am writing this article. I have a few of topics on a list which I write every time I would think of something that I think I should share my opinions or my thoughts about them with you all and as well a hand-pick of few topics from the topics suggestion list that I have gotten from you which I am grateful for because that gives me more options for what topics I should share my opinions or thoughts about with you all instead of having too few topics to share my opinions or thoughts which sometimes they can be bland so it gives me some flexibility in that area.

President Trump and White House; Captions.

Dear President Donald Trump, White House Administration and whoever it may concern.

I would like to address this letter to the President Trump, Trump’s Administration and White House especially for the team that is responsible for media, social media team/director, public relations or press team. I and the Deaf community have noticed that since the administration of the President Donald Trump have taken over the people’s house; White House have not yet provided closed captions for all the videos that you have produced to share on social media like YouTube, Facebook or others. By statistics in the United States it shown that there are over fifty (50) million Deaf and Hard of Hearing Americans who resides in the country that you represent for as President. We kindly ask that Trump Administration along with Trump Administration’s team who is responsible for the media and the White House to provide closed captions for every video that you produce for several social services such as YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and others so that we Deaf people of the America can have access to the information that any other people who can hear could by the sounds. If you provide sounds for all the videos that you have produced and not provide closed captions, then that would be unfair to over fifty (50) million Deaf people in the America. In year of late 2015, a couple of years ago a few of us Deaf people complained about the white house and Obama administration not providing closed captions for all the videos that they have produced. The Obama administration and white house have listened to our request for fair accessibility by providing closed captions which they provided closed captions for every video they produced a couple of years ago until Obama Administration leaves the White House.

Hey guys and women! I hope that every one of you are doing well, I am doing well myself aside being a bit cold as it is at 11 degree here in the eastern part of Kentucky and that is darn cold if you ask me. Now that the Christmas has passed by and as well the New Year has passed away so there are several days with no holidays for us except for the students who attend schools because of snow days. I remember that when I was in school, I always roots for several days of snow because it would mean that the school would be closed and this allows me to enjoy the snow days with some of the friends that I used to hang out with a several years ago, when we were in school together. Makes me wonder how some of the people who I used to hang out with, the ones that I used to talk with in school or my old classmates have done lately as most of them I haven’t talked to or seen in more than a decade since I graduated in the year of 2005 so that is twelve years ago, I was wild back then especially when it comes with some girls because I would use to flirts a lot with the girls, I went to prom four times with each different four girls so two prom in middle school and two prom in high school. I almost went for the fifth, this was the year after I have already been graduated as there was a girl who I used to date when I was very young (7-9 years old) asked me to go to the prom with her and I rejected in matter of few seconds after being asked because that I knew the reason which was that she didn’t want to or maybe was embarrassed to take her fiancé to the prom and that guy was almost forty years old while she was eighteen or nineteen years old.

Hey guys and women! I see that a lot of the people starts getting back to their routines, back to work, some adults being sent back to the colleges and some children being sent back to schools which I am sure that some of the parents are a bit happy about that since with their children being sent back to school would give them a little relief or some room to breathe after trying to handle these wild children for a couple of the weeks due to Christmas break. My mother is a special aide at a middle school as she has been for more than a decade or two, she assists the children with some kinds of special needs and I think she has worked for so many years so I sometimes would ask her to retire so that I could have my mother at home without having to worry about if something was to happen to her there. For some reason, as the years goes by I starts getting more worried over her going to work because I believe that if she is to retire that she would have much less risks to her health and by retiring I believe that she will continue to be very healthy as she is now. When my aunt broke her ankle in different three or four places by falling over the steps outside of the house and we looked it as her just having a broken ankle but down the road after few days of breaking her ankle she passed away due to blood clot from it which that can be prevented only if the doctors over at ARH in South Williamson, Ky gives her blood thinners medicine as some of the people does especially after certain surgeries but unfortunately the doctors didn’t give her blood thinners medicine so in result of that we lost her. Breaking her ankle was what starts the dominos effect, from broken ankles in two or three parts to her death and I believe if I remember correctly that it was one weeks or no longer than two weeks after her surgery for her broken ankle she passed away.
