Almost Finished My Program!

I know, it has been a while since I have written a post. School is going very well! Looks like I will be graduating with honors very soon. At this moment I am looking for a job to gain some capital to start up my own business.

I woke up a few days ago and realized that summer had sadly come to an end. I feel as if it had not started yet and now its over. The air is becoming cooler and the leaves are changing. Soon (unfortunately), it will start to snow and freeze. Thankfully, I know that my heater works. Thinking that this winter is going to be a rough one to say the least.

Another thing that I have been up to is trying to find a hobby. Since winter is approaching, I would like to find something to do indoors preferably. What kind of hobbies do you participate in? YouTube and Reddit have been amazing resources for information and resources for any type of hobby. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them!

I do have a business idea for my future. Just need to gain the capital required to get it up and running. With my education background I think that I would be the perfect candidate to be a business owner. Having that along with my vast amount of enthusiasm I know that I can succeed!

I had stopped using the service Netflix due to its newest release of the film “Cuties”. I have not seen this but have heard review after review. From what I could see from the trailer this was not some sort of “light-hearted” movie but something more sinister. This is making pedophilia seem more like a norm and should be shut down immediately. 

Thank you for keeping up with my blog and I hope to be brining you more content in the future! It has been over ten years since I had made my first post! I have met and heard from all different people and communities. This blog has helped me open my mind to other possibilities that I did not know existed. Writing has always bee a way for me to unwind and relax my thoughts as well as keep them organized. Have a good one!

Update August

So, I guess it's that time of year again. Soon, I leave my twenties behind and hit the big 3-0. I have been through quite a bit over these 30 years. Different places, people, and entire environments can change in the blink of an eye. The surprising parts of life are what remain the same over time. I didn't have any thoughts about what living in a pandemic would be like but here we are now.

Just watched a really good movie that you should check out:

Update July 2020

So far, this summer has been pretty… quiet. School has been going really well. Just found out that I’m on the Honors list. I have been trying to get outside for a few walks to retain some fresh air. Most of my time has now been dedicated to my education and friends. I hope that next year will bring some sort of hope for Covid-19.

My new hobby of indoor growing has been taking off. I have basil, corn, chili peppers, and watermelon. I have no idea how these are going to turn out for me but I’m trying anyway!

Update April 2020

Some good news first! I finally get to move into my apartment very soon. I have been waiting for a little over five years now and I am looking forward to it. It’s a bachelor apartment so its not big by any means but it will be a great starting place for me. I hope by getting my own space that it will benefit me when starting my first actual business.

Right now, a lot of my time has been spent going through school and looking up new ideas for a business/hobby. Owning my own business has always been a goal of mine. I am in the phase of figuring out what exactly that business is. Since COVID-19 became a bigger threat my classes have been online. Although I am getting work done and learning its not the same as being in the classroom.

Update March 2020

The snow outside is starting to melt away. Already into week six of my course and maintaining my average of 85%. Still trying to get that to a higher number. So as you can see my schooling is going well and I’m slowly figuring out what I would like to do in life. I have completed so much this year already and have so much farther to go!

My goal is to open my own business from the ground up. The course that I am currently enrolled in is Business Management. I had just completed course #3 out of 26 and starting the next on Monday.

Everyone keeps getting caught up with this virus that's spreading. The advice that I’d be given is to stay healthy (eating, sleeping, etc) and stay clean (wash). It’s also a good idea not to create too much stress. That would be a quick way to become sick. Stay safe!

Changing Your Views on Life

Now, I know that that may seem very difficult and you're absolutely correct! Switching something over from negative to positive in your personal thoughts can be a daunting task. Sometimes you just need to get away from your space whether it's physical or mental.

The first step that I take to accomplish this is I try to imagine where I would like to be if not in my present situation. Then where on this entire planet that would be described as my “perfect spot”. Once I have that in mind I like to imagine how to get to that goal of mine. What steps are required so that this goal can become a reality? The more positive you can feel about it the more you are able to think clearly making your path there a lot more clear.

The second step I usually find myself cleaning or organizing. This keeps me from obsessing over one thing and puts my head back into reality. Small tasks that can be easily completed within an hour or so adds some feeling of accomplishment for that day.

With just these two steps I can have a better outlook on my life in no time. Just by thinking more positively towards the future and pondering what it hold’s for me. I also look forward to hearing all the incredible feedback that I receive from writing and posting to my blog. It gives me a sense of purpose to continue and build up on it to make it better and more accessible.

Update February 2020

I am finally back in school! Now enrolled in the Business Management program I have started my journey to owning my company. So far I have more than enjoyed the course while maintaining an excellent GPA. I look forward to the day that I start my first business. This program gives me hope for my future.

Over this last week I have also been trying to gain a new skill set to be used in the workplace. This new skill would be programming with a language called “Python”. Which is a popular programming language used for things like web development and automation. By learning this I’ll be able to perform most tasks more proficiently.

I have high hopes for this year and feel like things are going to change for the better. My level of progress has increased incrementally and will continue to due so on the path that I am on. This week I have a presentation and a final exam to study for.

Starting a Community

Reading through the posts on forums like reddit for disability makes me feel like I'm less isolated from the rest of the world. To hear stories of similar and different struggles helps myself figure out my own. This is what I am trying to accomplish with my blog. To create a community of people sharing their stories/experiences with the rest of the community so we can all grow as a whole. I have been writing on and off for about 8 years now and it has given so much back to me in form of support and freedom. To think that my writing could help just one person is amazing.

This year I have started up a brand new community to help share stories with bloggers with disabilities. I hope to reach out to all other bloggers and bring them together. This way the writers can obtain more exposure for their writing. The best way to bring your blog up is to bring other's along with you.

I also have a Facebook page that I had started years ago. This group so far has over 100 likes and counting! The feedback has been incredible and I am excited to see what this year will bring to my communities. Please feel free to join at the link below!

Happy New Year!

Figuring out what you want in life can be the most difficult task ever faced by anybody. Whether it's to do with your career or another life choice decisions can be vague and confusing. Stuff that seems or is simple can become daunting. Asking yourself questions like: is this what I want to be doing for a period of my life? Can I support myself with this? Will I be happy and have the ability to wilfully get out of bed every mourning and look forward to another day on the job? This has been my dilemma for almost ten years.

My goals include owning a company that I had started. Two of the fields that I have been looking into are food and technology. For the food part I think a fry truck would be a neat idea. I love working with food. Trying to find better methods and ingredients to make the best dish possible. I always have a feeling that I can make something taste better. The technology field I have over fifteen years of experience. One hobby I enjoy is fixing computers and gadgets.

Another goal that I gave been working towards is obtaining my driver's license. I have over the last five years been looking into something called “van life”. What I find the most appealing about this is the freedom of having the ability to pick up and go somewhere else easily. Customization also seems like it would be fun for me to play around with. To make the entire space that I would be living in my own way.

This is the beginning of a new year. School is going to be a huge stepping stone for me. I hopefully will be starting my own business within the next year or so. That has been a goal of mine for some time now.

I want to thank all of my readers for sticking around my blog for this long and hopefully into the future! Writing has always been a passion of mine. Sharing my experiences and heating other's has been very eye-opening to me/others. I wish everyone luck in the new year and hope to hear from you soon.
