About Me

My photo

I love writing books and working on them. I'm a messy person, yet I love to organize. (Just not my room.)
I love to read, especially Magic Tree House, Boxcar Children, and A to Z Mysteries Super Edition.
I love using Netflix; they have helped me realize how much of a kid I am not and how much of an adult I am not.

Posting More

I thought I'd post one more blog before January is over. I do intend on posting more this year. I did manage to post more than five blogs last year, which is pretty nice. It seems the only thing that prevents me from doing this is the power of words... so to speak. A lot of times, I don't have much to say. But lately, it's more likely because of my radio show.

I've been using the radio show as a journal, and I think that needs to stop. The question is, what do I talk about besides myself? No one outside of my hometown bothers to listen to the show. I suppose the speeches for Earth Day would do. Then again... no, I'm drawing a blank. Lol. HELP!

Pay It Forward Weekend

For the Pay It Forward weekend, I helped out my three people. I had a lot of fun.

It was downtown. I had taken my hour exercise to walk to a new store we have in town, Lucky's Market. I had intended of taking out ten dollars for my laundry card. But on my way, I saw those two elderly men I always see when I walk downtown. I noticed a red leather glove a few yards away from them, so I put eight dollars in it. I didn't tell them, but I do hope some random person finds the money.

On my way home, I slipped a dollar in a local theater money tray. Not a movie theater, mind you, but a stage theater. This is my favorite stage theater in the whole town, by the way, and more popular than the MU stage theater. So I figured whoever works that day can get it, or whoever spots it from the sidewalk they are walking on.

And finally, I encouraged a birthday buddy get the confidence to walk downtown alone. He said it scared him to do it without someone. He actually tried to get me to join him, but I wanted to get home after walking around downtown for an hour. I told him that he could do it, go to Sparky's and get free ice cream for his birthday - as long as the ice cream parlor was open. I wasn't sure and couldn't remember. I told him to "be bold!" as Maurice would say, from the movie Ever After: A Cinderella Story.

In the basement, I gave a friend one dollar to help out his laundry card. He told me he wouldn't be able to pay back. Something about not getting money any time soon. I said it was fine, as long as he paid it forward.

Now, with wavering confidence, I do hope these people pay it forward. I encourage you to do the same. ;)
Happy Pay It Forward weekend!
And remember, it doesn't have to be just for the weekend. Do it every day. Let people know that they matter.


P.s. to those who want to contribute Pay It Forward whenever they want: If you want those three people to contribute as well, or you want them to know they've been chosen for those Utopian act, here is a link where you can print sheets. I first found out about it years after watching the movie. The movie became so popular and famous that people are actually doing the trend. So do please help out. Make the world a better place.

Realization

So.... yeah, I'm bored. Lol.

This week, I've figured out a few things. One - I still seriously need to improve my motivation. Two - I still seriously need to improve my self advocacy. And three - my radio show is more like my journal time. I noted this while doing my show on Monday. So I intend to do something about that.

Oh, that reminds me. I have a radio show on BlogTalkRadio. To see my profile, click on the following words: TE243's Show. TE243 is my username, but it is not my radio name. To find out what it is, I suggest you listen to my show. My schedule is Mondays and Fridays at 3pm central. I do hope you come and listen.

I hope to figure out how to influence people who listen to me. To take action on their own lives. :) I want to help people while I still get to talk about my life.

2014 - A New Beginning

Normally, I find that title too typical to see, especially when it's used with the new year. This time, it's different. A new beginning rings true at the moment, especially after the brilliant Christmases I had last month - three of them.
Okay, so why did I have three Christmases? Well, my parents are divorced, so my sisters and I have separate times on Christmas day to be with each parent. The third Christmas was with my co-workers, and boy, did we have a blast! I don't think I have ever been so blessed and so spoiled at the same time - even on Christmas.
My sisters, mom, and my eldest sister's boyfriend chipped in together to get me a new computer. My eldest sister decided to make it a searching puzzle like she did with my 24th birthday celebration. Lol. Anyways, her boyfriend got me a new keyboard and mouse; I've already brutalized the mouse by obsessively playing cookie clickers. Who knew Windows 8 could be so much fun and addicting? xD Even my dad got me a new headphone and microphone. All I need now is a new monitor and desk. Hehe, just kidding.
So this year, not only do I have the best toys now, my guts and instincts decided to change about how I felt for the new year. I kept getting the bad feeling that I wouldn't have a good year. I don't intend on making any New Year resolutions, because in the past, I've never been able to complete them. This year will be different.
Instead of resolutions, I am making goals. I know how to make them and somewhat stick on a regular basis, but I still have trouble finishing them. Lol. Back to the point, I am determined to get things done. I am making five goals for 2014, which are listed below. What about you? Do you have resolutions or goals to complete? What are they?

2014 Goals to Accomplish =
1. Pay off close to 800 for my credit card by June.
2. Lose 20 to 50 pounds by June. (It's about time I get slimmer swimsuits.)
3. Hire an editor for one of my books. (Note to self: Still need to figure out what book that will be.)
4. Finish paying off my mother's loan.
5. Publish -- a -- book!! ^_^ And this time, I seriously am determined to do so.

Look out, world. Allison is finally coming out!
