I am so excited that my mom @rhondasummer joined wordpress. I have talked to her about it for a while and she now has her own blog yaaaay. I am so proud of her and how good she has done so far. Blogging can be so hard at first but she flew past the first steps. Here is to my mom, I know you are going to do amazing things with your blog.
I know you probably have heard this one before and I know it sounds cliché but its true. I will never get married. I definitely am never having kids never ever ever. I have known since 1995 that this life is not for me. When I was ten I saw my sister and other girls swooning and talking boyfriends/marriage and I was like gross.
I just like being by myself A LOT and I always have. Although I know I will always want to have a roommate and a dog but never anyone I have to check in with when buying something and let them keep tabs on my choices gross. I like making my own decisions.
It has always been so funny to me when anybody uses ” you will never find a man” as an insult. I’m like noted, good to know, you just stated the obvious haha
If you still think I will change my mind one day then consider this. For 20 years I have known this to be true and that is a long time to take to make a decision. I have now surpassed the age my parents were when they had me.
p.s. I would like to point out that anyone who gets married I say congratulations to and I am happy for them. I can see when a marriage is beautiful and how it makes people happy. If this is the way you choose then more power to you. I did not mean to offend anyone just wanted to tell you what I have chosen. To each his own.
I have always had trouble with reading and writing. I am dyslexic and it has really been like running with a parachute on. I try to use spell check and grammar check but I know some things get past it.
I think this is a huge reason I wanted to become a blogger is because I always thought my words were useless. I never dreamed that I could write something that could be interesting. I really started blogging to help with my typing and grammar but it developed into something that was so much more. I have always tried to read, write and type at least a few hours a day to help with an ongoing treatment for dyslexia but I also know it will be there forever. So please don’t judge my blog to harshly. I’m just a person like you except I don’t have the grammar advantage you have.
All that being said I am so blessed and this little hang up does not get me down. It is a part of me and frankly it could have been much worse. I am not trying to make anyone feel sorry for me I just want grammar nazis to cool it a little bit when it comes to this blog.
OMG OMG OMG I know that sounds cliché but this is a big moment for me. I still feel like it might be a mistake I had to check and recheck to make sure I was reading it right. If you have liked one of my posts thank you so much for your time. I just hit 100 posts too and I know this would have never happened without the encouragement and friendship I have received from WordPress.
Thank you everyone who helped make this possible and if you are are reading this then that means you as well. I am so excited to see the twists and turns in the future of this blog. It has already brought possitive changes to my life that I did not expect. All the people I have met are so amazing and I am thankful to have met them. I feel so blessed to have found WordPress. I know this is something that will be a part of my life forever. I can’t wait to look back on my blog in 20 years.
WordPress is one of the most amazing things that I have found. I have been blogging on and off for years and nothing ever seemed to fit or pan out. I have put a lot of time into Blogger, Weebly and TSU time that wasn’t completely wasted although it felt that way at times. But it was time that I spent learning and that is never a loss. especially with TSU because they just shut down so all the pictures and words I had posted were gone. WordPress is so much more. I feel comfortable with knowing WordPress is not going anywhere and all the time and work I put on here is safe. This is something so real that you can have forever. From the first moment I started my WordPress account I felt a oppertunity to express myself like I have not ever felt before. And my very first friend ( Tony Burgess https://tonyburgess1969.net/ ) was so nice. I had no idea WordPress was a community as well as a blogging platform.
For free you can make a blog and let your heart be a microphone. I encourage everyone to start a blog and to use WordPress. Don’t give Facebook rights to your work anymore and stop letting blogging platforms hold you back.

I love her so much and she is an absolute joy to work with. We have always had so much in common and have plenty to talk about. It is very easy to talk to her lol I felt like I could tell her my life story from day one and she would not have judged me at all. She is very easy-going and does not ever have drama. True to her nature I know if I asked she would give me the shirt off her back. A great person that I am so very glad to know Medium Ashley
Tsu was a social media platform like Facebook that paid you for original content. I am still a little sour about the way this ended. It hurt lol it hurt bad. I really believed in this company. I always loved blogging and thought this was a great way to share my blogs and be part of an online community ( granted this was before I found WordPress) I still was very upset to see that ship go down. I put hundreds of hours into my Tsu account and making blogs about Tsu. It feels so good now to be a part of WordPress and know I don’t have to worry about anything going anywhere lol unless there is a zombie apocalypse.

Hahaha I was just thinking I am going to do nothing for my birthday but I still always make everything a birthday thing. So I will order some birthday Chinese food, take some birthday naps and I am going to drink as many birthday Cokes as I feel like lol watch a birthday sunset and do some birthday Game of Thrones binge watching. I was also thinking of getting a new 40$ phone hahaha whooo hooo I am really going crazy this year this year huh. Ok not really but I like to act festive about the whole thing. Birthdays can be a very depressing time but acting festive and happy about literally nothing keeps me feeling positive.
This crazy quarter got a water burn or water tattoo from being in the sink too long. I saw it in there for a few days but I forgot about it and left for the weekend. I came back in on monday and found the quarter with a stripe across and one up and down. I am not sure how it happened but I had to take a second look.
