"Easily Distracted" Are The Words This Weekend

Almost every time I realize I still need to write the blog, it's less than an hour away from midnight in my time zone. LOL! Well, that's smooth. So I'm gonna be pretty quick here.

Ever since I turned in my story to my boss, which was Thursday afternoon, I've been storming through on Supernatural. (Now on season 7.) I watched the entire "Between the Scene" playlist of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. I'm about five to ten videos shorter in finishing Jesse Cox's playlist of Fan Friday. I edited two books of mine, so I can send it to a former coworker. (It was her birthday on Saturday.) And right now, after this, I'm finishing up a transcription on a game theory video for The Game Theorists. Out of the goodness of my editorial heart.

Oh, and I almost forgot. I even re-listened (and re-watched) some of the remixes people made of JackSepticEye and Markiplier. That definitely helped me get some stuff done in my kitchen. Lol.

The two things I wish I had …

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…
