Just some random (and Exciting!) stuff

Alright, I have some great news! I’VE GOT A JOB!!!!!!! YAAAAAYYYYY!!!!!

I am so incredibly excited and happy about that. Now, I must say that because of where I am working, I am going to have a seriously busy schedule. But, I am going to keep up with you as best as I possibly can. I am going to be very active and I am incredibly excited about all of the blogging that is going to happen in the future.

I am also starting a new venture, a Paper! Can you believe it? Yes, I am starting an online paper as well. Now, that’s a lot to do. And as usual, I am always trying to do a lot. I am never happy with having just a few things to do. I am always about keeping my mind and everything active. Sometimes, over active. But, I must say that I think that this is going to be a fascinating venture.

There are a few other things that I want to share with you. This past weekend, my hometown high school really went in on the celebrating. For four days, there were pep rallies, parades, football games and tailgating. And boy oh boy, did everybody have a great time! They absolutely loved it! Everybody was so incredibly happy to see each other and they were so happy to have the great food, the photographs. It was great to see people having terrific fun and on such a happy occasion. I went out there, even though I was home-schooled. But, I still enjoyed myself. I had some laughs and that was nice.

The main thing for me, is it’s always a challenge for me to fit in and join in the festivities. Because I don’t really know all of those people and I don’t have the slightest clue on how to interact. So I pretty much, just walked around and look at everybody. Listened to the laughter and looked at everybody that just was so happy to be having fun. The parade was great! Mom and I went to the Alumni parade. And there were so many people that were so pleased to be representing their respective classes! They were dancing and screaming and cheering! It was great! We got to see some people that I hadn’t seen in a while! I am glad that my hometown was able to celebrate themselves and each other.

All in all, we had a great weekend! And I can’t wait until next year! I know that it will indeed be great!!!

But, I will be blogging as often as possible and I will be keeping you posted on things. I just wanted to let you know what I’ll be doing. So, I will be chatting with y’all! ❤

The Blogging World

As bloggers, we get started with a few main things that we need, in order to provide a good post. A blank page/screen, a idea and often times, photos. These are some of the most powerful tools in blogging today. You must have these elements in order to connect with your readers and to hopefully, encourage them to share your work so that you can reach new readers.

But, when you are able to reach that moment when your work surpasses your expectations and ends up surprising you, then that is when you have reached the dream!

It’s always a major surprise to me when I get good attention for my blog. I am always humbled and honor. I basically do a little happy dance in my seat, because my writing is so important to me. I want to write, where my work will touch people. I want people to feel like they are in a face to face conversation with me. I want my work to be something that they can nod their heads in agreement, while reading it. Of course, I do understand that not everyone will feel that way about my work. And I am fine with that. I take that with just as great a honor as the lovely things that are said. Because the fact that some one took time to stop by my blog, means a lot.

The reason why I was inspired to write this post, is because of a woman named Stephanie. Now, I’m sure that you’ve heard about this, but in case you haven’t, I’ll catch you up. Stephanie is a mother that went shopping at Target for her children. She noticed that the girls’ clothing is sized much differently than the boys’. A pair of shorts for her son were marked a XS, but that a girls’ L was the exact same size! And I must say that I can agree with her outrage. And her blog post has definitely caused a stir. And I mean,  A Stir!!! People are joining in with her in full agreement. And Target has definitely taken notice.

Stephanie has taken the initiative to step forward and make a statement about an issue that I am sure as been talked about by a lot of Mothers, but it wasn’t brought to light in this way. And I am very proud of her, for speaking up and making her feelings known. And little did she know, this would make her a nationally talked about mother and blogger. She’s got a lot of people eager to see change in this situation.

How do you feel about it? To all of you mothers, have you noticed this problem? Have you seen what Stephanie is talking about? If so feel free to comment. Also, please check out her blog, Binkies and Briefcases.
