I Need To Lose Weight

Yesterday was my team's last day of swim practice. Mainly because the central area of Missouri won't be competing in swimming at State. So for our last practice, we didn't work on any laps. We played water games and ate snacks. Correction: they had snacks. It was all sugary foods, so I passed.
I gotta admit. This past Thursday, I got to try on the rest of my MO Magic gear. Everything fit well except for a pair of shorts. The only problem about it was me. I seriously need to lose weight. I doubt she can get a size higher. When I told her I needed to lose weight, she gave me quite a shocked "Are you serious?" look.
I'm not very good at portion control. Or even what I eat. Until I'm back from Seattle, I will stick to healthy food deliveries, as well as cooking only the portion sizes of what I normally buy. I only hope I can commit to this plan. I also suck at sticking to a plan like this. Lol.
There is a lot about me that I need to fix, and I'd rather write…

Changing Narrations/Writing Articles and Stories

It's interesting and more fun to write fiction. You can make up just about anything. You don't even need to do research. Well, only if what you're writing hasn't been done before. In most cases, it has, but you never know. (This world needs more creativity and spark from us!)

For me, a good portion of the books I've written need plenty of research. Some books require clothing and names from certain centuries. Some need a few things on vampires, mermaids, or even Greek mythical creatures. (Yes, I said it. At least two books, which are paired together, demand all types of animals and creatures.) Heck, several of my books require the proper lingo from the correct century. Now those are difficult to find, but I'm digressing here.

The most difficult story writing for me... is non-fiction. Seriously. Yes, I know I'm blogging, but that's different. I put my thoughts and feelings with typed up words. Most people say it's easy; it's not that hard. Surpri…

Accepting And Growing From Within (About Your Disability)

It hasn't even been a full week into May and already there's something to say about Special Olympics - about all the athletes, and even those who aren't IN Special Olympics who have disabilities. Today, I received a call from my boss about certain issues that occurred this year. One of which consisted complaints from certain athletes about a question I asked them in my interviews. The question was, "What is your disability?"

To be honest, and you probably already know this by now, I tend to react before I think. It's been a gift and a curse my entire life. I don't know how to fix it or even remove it. Lately, it's been more of a curse. Because I'm a PR Assistant for Team Missouri, this "react before thinking" has repercussions to Special Olympics, its image and "my image." I write that in quotations due to the fact I tend to embrace everything about myself, including my flaws. Even though, at times, I wish I didn't have tho…

What A Crazy Month!

What a crazy month April has been! About two months ago, Brandon had me transcribe 13 interviews. That took a lot of time on the days I worked on them. He gave a loose deadline, which helped, but I knew I couldn't put them off too long. I managed to finish them two weeks ago. It was nice timing too, because when he contacted me to finish them, I only had two interviews left and they were short enough to work on in two days.

In that same contact with him, he said he needed two Spotlight interviews edited and done for him before a certain date. That happened to be fortunate for me because I had forgotten about my monthly training at CATV. I managed to get both interviews done and sent on dropbox. What I forgot to do after finishing them was schedule the posts for those interviews on SOMO's Facebook page.

Fortunately, I scheduled a lesson with CATV for the following week to learn about the DSLR camera. That was a lot of fun. I've always wanted to learn more about digital came…

An Escape Plan For Your Hometown?!

I really am excited about tomorrow. I wish I had done everything that I had planned today. There wasn't enough time, though. I would've exercised and researched my hometown's layout. I still don't know where everything is in this town. Lol.

Tomorrow, an escape room business called Escape Plan is hosting an event -

Murder Mystery, a City-Wide Escape!
My sister, my mom, I, and either my brother in law or pops will be in a team together. We have to traverse our hometown, searching for clues to solve a murder. We must bring Dilly's killer to justice. Our first clue before the start time for Saturday afternoon is this: "Dilly beloved by all, it's unfortunate she had to endure such cruelty with 14 stab wounds." This is going to be hard. I hope I'm ready.

"Gather up your team of 4-6 and join Escape Plan for a city wide escape! All teams will begin at Escape Plan and will follow their initial murder mystery clue to their first location, and so on thro…

I Want To Be...

I try to manage my money as best as I can, though it doesn't always work out. I love delivery food - especially when it's Order Up. I have subscriptions to three sites for TV shows and movies to watch: Netflix, YouTube Red, and PureFlix. PureFlix, I absolutely love.

I actually made a deal with myself. If I don't watch a certain amount of time on PureFlix, I cancel my subscription. I happened to discover PureFlix as an ad on my Facebook profile. It was "The Encounter," a great movie. I was like, "Okay, I'll try to find a link that's not PureFlix and watch the film. If it's decent, I'll subscribe." I found out that not only was it fairly decent with two really nice celebrities, The Encounter had a sequel and its own TV show. (By the way, the celebrities are Jaci Valesquez the Christian singer and Sting the wrestler.)

I was hooked. For a while, I actually believed PureFlix was a Christian film/TV show website. It's not entirely true. It…

Public Venting Is Bad Publicity?!

I finally managed to upload the vlog on Saturday. I can't believe it took me so long to work on it, but it's up now. Please understand that I don't want this happening, but because I'm so worried about my allergic reaction to stress, a break from my gaming channel is needed. I have no idea how long it'll be, but it's happening.
(I worry for our country if all journalists and news-anchors go through this stage and not come out the way they hoped.)
