When I was a child, my favorite movie was the Sound of Music. After watching that, I longed to be a musician, even going as far as taking piano and guitar lessons. My dad brought me home a keyboard similar to the yamaha ypg 235 from musicians friend from the US and I played with it constantly. Did I get any good at it? Of course not! I did have a lot of fun though. Nevertheless, I loved that keyboard because it had all sorts of special effects and it could play tunes on its own, and I’d just press the keys that lit up as it cued me haha.
As I have shared many times in the past, I am perhaps one of the least musically inclined people ever. When I was a child, however, that never stopped me from asking for a guitar or a keyboard for my birthday. I guess back then it was easier to experiment and to be okay with not being good at something. Now I can barely attempt holding a musical instrument! However, as I fall more and more comfortably into the groove of being a preschool teacher cum yoga teacher, I slowly have been experimenting with the idea. Thankfully there are apps that help out with that! I did see an ad that said “save on suzuki keyboards” and I kinda feel this is a sign for me to explore more. Whatchathink???
I really do not know how to begin this note. I have so much pent up frustration due to the terrible service I have been getting these past few weeks. Last night I clocked in an unbelievable 0.10 mbps, when I’m paying for supposedly a 1mbps package. What gives?
Boo, I tell ya.
See my little sweetie? His face can fool you. He is one of the most anxious dogs I have ever met (and I’ve met a lot!) and I believe that a lot of that has to do with the fact that I took him too early from his doggy momma and took him to a home with a big bully (aka Bubba) without much of an introduction. I failed to realize that it may be traumatizing for a little puppy to walk into a home with a ginormous dog without warming either of them up. As a result, he has become anxious, easily agitated and defensive. Because of that, I came close to losing him. I realized, however, that love and patience really goes a long way. After many months of training and really helping build his confidence, he is slowly becoming a calmer more sociable dog At one point, out of desperation, I thought of sticking him in a cage every time I leave the house. I also looked up dog shock collar reviews and thought maybe that could help. Luckily, for both me and Joe, I found a better solution. I took him to a dog trainer and gave him some homeopathic remedies that have made a big difference. And more than that, I really took the time to make him feel loved and accepted. Now, even if he has his moments, he really is a sweetie
I am the summer queen. At least I used to be. I LOVE SUMMER. I love the heat, I love the bright brilliant sun, I love that you can put away your Spyder Jackets and other rain gear and just bask in the glow of the sun. This summer, however IS INSANE! GOSH!!! I don’t know if I have just gotten older or if the weather is really just bad. Oh well. Not complaining though, just reacting.
I think many people can relate to this these past few weeks! My usually trusty internet server provider suddenly went kaput in terms of service. I tell ya. It’s kinda frustrating — scratch that, its super frustrating! I don’t know if it’s the whole election thing causing extra internet traffic or what but its TERRIBLE! WAAAH. Random frustrated rant.
It saddens me to see how relationships just fall apart. Be it intimate relationships or friendships, it’s just sad. I mean, you invest time, effort and everything else in it, right? Then for whatever reason, it fails.
I used to think, however, that everything can be worked out and all relationships will survive challenges. That all of these marriages will end up celebrating 50 years together and the couple will exchange diamond wedding bands again to celebrate the occasion. However, now that I am older, I have come to realize that indeed, somethings do come to an end and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. In the end, as they say, is always a new beginning.
I may not have human children and I might not celebrate their birth with cheap bundle cigars exclaiming “It’s a boy” but these two little kooky boys sure make me happy. I do not know what my life would be like without them. I sure have had problems with them, especially the little one, and it has cost me quite a bit to maintain them, but to be honest, it is worth every single centavo
Lazy boring summer days with my boys…not! My boys finally got themselves a swimming pool. Hopefully Joe gets trained well enough to stop fearing people that I can actually take him to a beach. In the meantime, this will have to do
Last week, I had to put on make up for the first time in a LOOOOONG time. It was so funny because I could barely find anything to use. In fact, I had not one eyebrow pencil left! It was funny because before it used to be a normal part of my life. Anyway, I decided to clean up my dresser and found a whole bunch of old makeup that I decided was time to be thrown out.I even found some hair wax and samples of little things I don’t use because they’re for men. I don’t even know what those things were for, kinda like that firehouse moustache wax I came across recently! Har. In any case, now that my dresser is free, I wonder if I should refill it with some make up and prettifying materials, whatcha think???
