Limericks… Not.

Japan

Amy and Hashi went to Japan

They were so excited to land

Once on the ground

They walked around

Exploring Japan was quite grand

In My Head

The noises in my head won’t stop

I keep hearing snap, crackle, pop

I’ve traveled in my mind

So many, many times

Oh please, oh please make the noise stop

Let’s make today, a Great day!

day

Good morning and good evening, depending on where you live. Let’s make today a great one! Not so easy, huh… Well, if you woke up today that’s great! I have some bad days, at times more bad, then good. When I open my eyes in the morning, that’s one great thing. If I am able to see the outside, go for a walk, see the birds and the trees, that’s another great thing.

So, if your day is not going the way you want it too… Look around there might be some other things that you can appreciate. So let’s make today a Great one. ūüôā

Sleep… Zzzzzz.

Woman-Cant-Sleep

That wonderful word: Sleep. ¬†Getting some Z’s, as some call it. You know, the moment you start yawning and your eyelids start drooping. You try to get in a comfortable position, but can’t seem to find it. So, you turn over and over and over and over. ¬†Well, that’s not going to work. So,¬†you get up to get a drink of water and check the thermostat, wondering if it’s too hot or cold in the house.

You get back to bed and adjust your pillow and blanket, hoping that will help, in getting you to sleep. So, you finally get comfortable. “Hip, Hip, Hoorah!” Finally! After a few minutes, you start to feel like you have to go to the bathroom. You think, no way am I getting up, I will just sleep it off or get up later. About half hour later, your still awake. What a surprise. Here you go again, getting up out of bed.

You hurry back to bed, thinking I can do this… You pull your covers up, get your pillow nice and comfy and close your eyes. Piece of cake. All of a sudden you hear a sound. What the heck!¬†Someone has turned the tv on. The volume is loud enough to shake the walls. You yell, can you please turn down the tv! As you try to go back to sleep, you can still hear the tv. You try your best to drown out all noises.

Two hours later, you’re looking at the clock… Your still awake! ¬†You toss and turn, then you turn over your pillow. You close your eyes, while thinking of what mom use to say, about counting sheep. ¬†Hey, what have you got to lose…

Here goes… 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9…… Zzzzzzzzzz

Blogging Neighbor…

So, I am on to assignment 3 today, for blogging101 course. Trying to play catch up… The assignment For yesterday, was meet your neighbors. I had to follow 5 new blogs and 5 new topics, I think that’s right. Wow… Not as easy as I thought. Everytime, I would start to read a blog that I liked, I noticed at the end of the post it was category that I was already following.

I then went out to the freshly pressed blogs, then to readers favorite blogs, then topics, tags, etc… I finally settled on topics. My new blogs that I decided to follow are humor, family, art, culture and travel. I read some great blogs today, that I wouldn’t have read, if I had not done my assignment. Some of them, might not have been my favorite categories, but I quite enjoyed reading them, after scrolling through the topics list.

Being able to see blogs from all over the world is quite exciting. I even discovered one blog, where I and the blogger had the same phobias. I thought… Wow… There is someone out there like me and the thing we have in common is more than just typing away on our blog. Well, that’s what I learned today. Take a chance and try to follow someone, you might never of thought of following. You might be pleasantly surprised, to learn a thing or two.

What will be… C’est la vie…

catsThe name of my blog is “whatever it is, it’s not so bad.” ¬†Today I have changed my title, for my second blogging101 assignment. ¬†I guess, they want to know if I know how to change my title. ¬†Yes, I do. ¬†The reason I picked my original title is because I try to see the positive, that life has to offer. ¬†Life has many challenges, good and bad. ¬†When I open my blog each day, I can glance at the title, to see a little reminder, that life is okay.

That what will be, will be. As long as I try to give my best effort, life can’t be that bad. ¬†We tend to complain about our life, the obstacles that we face, the ups and downs. ¬†Sometimes, it seems there is too many downs and not enough ups. ¬†One way I remind myself to be positive, is that I have another day on this earth. ¬†I wake up and say, “thank you, for another day.” ¬†To myself, of course…lol. ¬†I get another chance to see the trees, the sky and the birds. ¬†Another day to see my family and friends.

When I was younger, I would say, “whatever,” when I didn’t like something or things weren’t going my way. ¬†Whatever this, whatever that… ¬†I wouldn’t really think things through, just a quick whatever would do. ¬†I even had a friend who I hadn’t spoken to for a number of years, ask me if I still said, whatever. ¬†I never thought, I said it that much. ¬†Now, my feelings have changed, about using that word. Actually, I rarely say the word anymore.¬†My new saying is “C’est la vie.”

It is a French saying, which means “that’s life or that’s the way it goes.” ¬†So this is reason, I choose my title, “whatever it is, it’s not so bad.”
