Rethinking My Blog

Standard

Hi everyone!

I’ve been thinking about the content of my blog and possibly why I blog all together. I remember the reasons I first started blogging which can still be found on my About Page, but it evolved into something else. It wasn’t about just sharing the randomness in my life, blogging became my emotional outlet. A place I can express, explain, understand, and work through (at the time) depression and separation. Since I’ve been reunited with my second half, I haven’t been feeling lost, alone, unhappy, depressed, etc. I used to blog about working through those things, or about those things in general. Really, more so for my personal use and motivation. I’m in a very positive place now, a much different place than where I was. It makes sense to me that my blogging would change, but change into what? I guess, I’m feeling as if my blog is lacking purpose which had always been present to me before. I don’t know if it’s just because I’ve been so busy with the holiday season and family or what, but lately when I start a post I don’t feel as if it fits. Maybe I’m still going through some personal changes and I haven’t found out how to express it? Do you know what I am talking about?

I’m not so sure where I’m going with this or what I want to blog about. So, I’m rethinking my blog in terms of content. I don’t see myself not blogging and I will definitely continue doing my Family Interactions post. How could I not?!!! I guess I’ll call it a content make over… in the making? :P

Christmas Tag

Standard

Hi everyone! I am here doing a Christmas Tag posted by Panda Ponders I love these kinds of posts. Tag you’re all it!!! Haha, here we go!

1. What’s your favorite Holiday movie?

Does Disney’s Frozen count? I blame my nephew.

2. What are your favourite Christmas colors?

Silver and Red. I guess that kinda of goes with my college colors as well.

3. Do you like to stay in your pj’s or dress up for Christmas?

That depends on whether I am staying home or not. If I am going at all I’ll dress up for sure, if it’s a stay at home deal, you bet my pj’s will be on.

4. If you could only buy one person a present this year who would it be?

My nephew. I absolutely adore his little smile and besides I like spoiling him!

5. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?

Growing up, my family and I always opened our presents first thing Christmas morning. I remember trying to stay awake all night not wanting to miss anything. That never happened, I always fell asleep, haha.

6. Have you ever built a Ginger Bread House?

I have. I built one in high school and used the house and ginger bread men as a representation for a family structure model… I ate the gum drops.

7. What do you like to do during your Christmas holidays?

Sledding is always fun, if you have the snow. Mostly, it’s the time of year all the relative get together and you connect and reconnect with family. A lot of family time, love, and fun.

8. Any Christmas Wishes?

My Christmas wish already came true. :) I do want to wish for everyone to arrive to their friends and family safely and I also want to extend my wish to all those who cannot be with their families and loved ones. Bless them. <3

9. Favorite Christmas smell?

Before the age of the plastic/fake Christmas trees, a real tree would be cut, placed, and decorated. It’s been years, but I love that smell of a real tree in the living room.

10. Favorite Christmas meal or treat?

Oh, I love German Stollen! I’m German on my father’s side and we make these sweet loafs every Christmas holiday. My sister makes the best I swear! if you are interested I found an excellent recipe online. I totally recommend trying a slice of Stollen! ;)

When Nurture Calls Campaign

Standard

Hi everyone!

Recently I was poking around the internet and came across the When Nurture Calls campaign add and I just had this overwhelming disappointed feeling with society. Now, I realize this may in fact offend some people,and if it does offend you really ask yourself why? The bottom line here is that a mother who chooses to publicly breast feed should not be socially shamed and shunned to feed their baby in a public restroom! Why? So that people who find it offensive can feel better about themselves? Are you fucking kidding me!! Breast feeding is perfectly natural process and should be praised rather than condemned.

But why is it so offensive to people? Here is my personal thought to that question. Breast feeding is offensive because it exists in a misogynistic (feel free to look that word up) society obsessed with pornography to the point where it is generally believed that the female breasts should not be used for anything other than male pleasure. Any form or use outside of that narrow description is considered gross and ill mannered. Come on, breast feeding is not pornography!

Do you think public breast feeding is offensive, covered or not? Why do you think breast feeding is so uncomfortable for people? Would you breast feed your baby in a public restroom?

Join the movement and support public breast feeding so mothers can be mothers!

Family Interactions

Hi Everyone! I’m here posting another Family Interactions post today. Go check out my last Family Interactions post if you want another laugh! ;)

This is a short conversation I had with my crazy sister a few days ago. !WARNING! Lots of profanity ahead!

In case we haven’t establish this already, my family is nuts! :lol: Enjoy the conversation.

Marie: “Hey Michelle! What is a ‘Basic White Bitch’?”

Me: O.o “Ah what?!…”

Marie: “…………”

Me: “I don’t know, it seems pretty self explanatory I guess.”

Marie: “… But like, why ‘white bitch’? Wouldn’t just plan bitch be more politically correct?”

Me: “Oh, so we are having a political discussion about bitches?”

Marie: “No! I just want to know if you knew what it meant?”

Me: “I don’t know, ask your stupid smart phone.”

Marie: (Pulls out her iPhone) “Siri, what is a Basic White Bitch?”

Siri: “Ok! Here’s what I found!”

This is the top answer that Siri found for my sister: “A bum-ass woman who think she the shit but really ain’t.”

Marie: “… so not politically correct then?”

Me:

Reaction GIF: facepalm, Star Trek

Me: “Thanks Marie, I literally feel like I lost brain cells.”

Begin rant in 3…2…1. MOM!!!!
