Life is full of unexpected twists and we make mistakes. I am here to share some of mine in addition to random research. I hope my writing inspires people to be kinder, do better, question things, think for themselves and feel strong.
F-Boy Types This generation is not my cup of tea from the vanity to the inability to put the phone down or technology in general down and get to know each other. TV watching is the only exception. That is not what I am here to discuss though. I am here to talk about my experiences dealing with F-boy after F-boy after F-boy and the various common types of F-boys I encountered. I spotted five types; the No Label F-Boy, the Kiss Up Pitty F-Boy , the Power Grabbing F-Boy, the Bragging F-Boy and the Good D F-Boy.
Attention Treehuggers I have found myself recently in deep thought about the needy and saving our planet. If you are like me and want to help Mother Earth… I put together a list of the top ten things a beginner tree hugger can do. Once you have gotten into the groove of doing these things then you can raise awareness and spread word to your family, friends and followers.
Cozy Corner Dream If I was a home owner my cozy corner would be my customized basement which I would have high ceilings and turn into an arcade bar with a theatre. I dream of Emser Marble Breccia Oniciata tiled heated floors and textured red and beige damask wallpaper. I’d like two red and gold velvet chaise lounges on each side of the stairwell upon entering. However, I don’t want regular stairs I want a spiral escalator. From start to finish when you walk in to reaching the other side of the basement I want installed ceiling speakers with decent bass, maximum sound and the least harmonic distortion. I want LED light to trim the ceiling and the floor and an antique red and brown wooden air hockey, ping pong, pool table with cool floating shelves for sculptures. I want a Samsung 98" Class 8K UHD (4320p) HDR Smart LED-LCD TV with reclining massage chairs with food trays arrayed in three rows of four each elevated more than the next on each side of a hot tub with disco lights. Enough dreaming though, it was nice while it lasted!
Music For A Boosted Mood Social distancing and mask wearing have made social life challenging. Through these masks it is difficult to breathe and to hear others as well. 2021 may just as well be a repeat of 2020, or at least half of it until the vaccinations numbers are up to the government's satisfaction. Life as we know it has changed dramatically. Aside from binging on Netflix and Hulu, painting, drawing, making jewelry and music, listening to music is something that enhances my mood significantly in these challenging times. I listen to music almost the entire day, upon waking up, when I'm bathing or showering, when I am falling sleep, and even on my way to the store. I have always had some chunky headphones or earbuds since mp3 players and the Walkman were trending. Music just gives me life!
It's Hard Times During Corona In the midst of this Corona Virus there are a lot of people struggling. There are a lot of people out of work or with shortened hours and in need of help in paying bills or just getting food and other necessities. Mutual aid funds where you can volunteer to exchange services or resources for mutual benefit are great resources for anyone in need during this time. In the state of Massachusetts we have the Human Network Initiative, The Asian American Resource Workshop, Massachusetts Jobs with Justice Group and Covid-19 Greater Boston.

10 Fashion Hell No’s 1. Different shades of the same is lame Match or don’t rock the same color at all. Rock sets or make sure the two reds, two pinks etc. are the same shade within that color. Nothing is tackier than a dark black shirt and a lighter black pair of leggings or jeans. Match the black or change the jeans or leggings especially if they are on top of each other. Sometime you can get away with the different top and bottom shades if you offset it with a zip up hoodie, buttoned cardigan or cover up of some sort that closes some.
Halloween Tradition Every holiday has its traditions and Halloween is just as much as a holiday as Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s in my book. Witches conjure up the dead and pagans call out to Samhain for whatever reason... if you believe in that sort of thing. Your average normal non-religious American like myself sees Halloween as an excuse to eat desserts, candy and party or watch all of your favorite scary thriller movies.
