A new semester

A new semester starts for me next week. I am now a sophomore. More nutrition classes, more science. Also, I am taking math and Italian, so it is going to be pretty busy.  And, I am starting in work study this semester. I have worked part time and gone to school before, in culinary school. I think I can handle this.

I am glad I am half done with this associates, but am now…

How not to write a persuasive speech

I am supposed to give a persuasive speech for my oral communications class, and it is going to be about how expanding your experiences can improve your ability to decide on a major for college.It sounded like a good topic, and I think the people in my class could benefit from it,as we are all students, and I am pretty sure some of us haven't decided. 

I know that experience should help someone know what they are interested in. However, I have found, it really clouded up the decision…

A new school year.

So, this year is a little more than half over. And, I decided it is time for a change. 

The weight loss went well, and is still working out for me. Haven't gained any weight back, and have done things to make me healthier. Also, dropped a few additional pounds in the mean time.

I decided it was time for me to go back to school. I will be studying nutrition science. It sounds interesting to me. The healthier lifestyle made me decide this was a good career goal, so that's what I…

Updates and opinions of mine.

We are heading into the end of another calendar year. This is an interesting time for me each year. My birthday is in December, so I tend to do a personal inventory sometime in November or December. I find it usually depresses me, so I try not to stay on that for too long. 

This year, from the physical standpoint, I have done well. I have continued with the walking and watching portions that I eat, and have managed to lose about 113 pounds since late January. Still a work in progress,…

My view of news

When I was younger, I wanted to be a reporter. Originally, I wanted to be a sportswriter, but I didn't follow through with the education I would have needed. I think that means it was just a daydream on my part, because I was looking for an excuse to go watch a lot of baseball games, and that might be why I didn't follow through.

But, I also thought about becoming a reporter because I thought the work done by journalists was important. Getting messages through to people mattered.…

What to do with the rest of your life

My daughter graduated from college. It started me thinking about what it was like when I graduated at different levels in my life.

When I graduated from high school, I was the first one in my family, in my generation, to do so. Everyone seemed proud. However, it wasn't that big a deal, really. My mother, my older sister and my brother had all taken and passed their GED tests, so I didn't feel it was that major. I remember feeling uncertain about what I was going to do next. I was…

Stopping refugees at the border and asking them if they are terrorists makes about as much sense as asking your child if they want a spanking...of course, they will answer no.  Trying to prove they a…

Stopping refugees at the border and asking them if they are terrorists makes about as much sense as asking your child if they want a spanking...of course, they will answer no. 

Trying to prove they are one of the "right" religions is pointless as well. Which variety of what religion is the correct one that won't cause anyone, ever, to be radicalized? How do we determine a test that one has to pass in order to be allowed in? 

It would be nice if there was some magic test or…

New Year's resolutions versus long term goals

I have a hard time with the month of December. Thanksgiving at the end of November tends to send me down a gloomy path. It isn't that I can't come up with things I am thankful for. Usually, there are a lot of positives in my life.  But, I guess being told I have to be thankful then more than at other times pushes me over some imaginary brink. I think it is all in my head. Still, it doesn't prevent this from happening ever year.

So, after that "holiday", I head into the most wonderful…

It makes no sense

I tried to post something like this yesterday, but storms knocked me off line before I could post it.  I will try to do this again.

Here are some things that don't make any sense to me.

1. People who think using the greeting, "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas" is a way of starting a war.

2. Republicans who act like  Ronald Reagan was a saint, or Democrats who act like JFK was a saint.

3. Teaching something other than science in science…

This is the time of year when a lot of people get together, at least where I live. For some families, this is the time when all are together. This year, I will only be with my immediate family, and that is ok.

Twenty fourteen and twenty fifteen have not been the easiest years I have ever had. In April 2014, my older sister was diagnosed with uterine and ovarian cancer. A few days after I found that out, my father in law had a stroke. Then, a few days after that, my mother was…
