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.

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.
