Louise or LouLou loves writing so much it has became a career she loves. But while struggling with the starving artist part she is trying to find a job that can give her a passive income.
What's the Point Of Vocal+
I ask myself this all the time. Vocal has their favourites, the judges seem to always pick those who are their favourites. Now this is a difference in opinion. Is it just me or is it a coincidence that we all seem to see the favourites always winning whereas people like myself if we aren't well known because we are college, or have leaves not creating content all the time. We almost never win a challenge. Seem to have fewer numbers of readers feeling like our voices aren't heard. Now I love Vocal a lot don't get me wrong.
Is It Okay To Defend Yourself if someone Throws the First Punch?
So my experiences haven't been easy at the shelter. This is the ghetto shelter baby, so it's defend yourself or roll over playing the victim. I have been in Cleveland for now almost two months everything is coming together yes. Not without the occasional challenge or roadblock.
All The Things People Take For Granted
We all have limits as to what we can handle. Once you reach that limit it's hard to say what happens. Feels like all I do is work hard applying for job after job. Working so hard without the proper sleep can be very difficult.
What It's Like To Not Have A Voice
It's hard for a survivor witness those who do our significant others wrong. Makes us feel like we have no voice left. We begin to think and feel like are we really survivors? Don't you dare say anything, I feel like our voices are taken from us just woman but a man's to.
Credit Where Credit is Due
So much has been so much that has been going on for the past few weeks. I have been homeless for almost two weeks. Temporarily having a roof over my head at a homeless shelter called Norma Herr. In this experience I wouldn't trade it for the world. It was in this experience seeing the poor unfortunate souls seeing them that changed my world forever.
Shameful Thoughts In A Survivors Mind
I learned a long time ago, that words hurt. And it's to much at times the words of hate and racism. How is it all my life I never once thought of any of this. The sadness, the anger, how I feel alone most of the time. Most of the time it's easy lately not to so much.
What's It Like In A Homeless Shelter
This is day four, in a homeless shelter for me, and apparently I have the face of a innocent woman with Bambi eyes. The staff is unprofessional completely right down to almost cruel. When I was verbally assaulted by a staff member yesterday, my adrenaline, was helping me survive.
Discrimination Within the Homeless Community
It's so easy to be victimized by people if you let it happen. The world is full of all sorts of dangers, but when trying to get back on our feet establishments will make things harder on on us. Trying to better our lives sometimes doesn't matter, we all need to get out of that mentality. Sometimes things aren't supposed to come easy people are supposed to be road blocks to show us we can make it whatever it takes.
The mirror showed a reflection that wasn't my own. As you step through the mirror, you find yourself in a beautiful forest unlike anything you've ever seen before. The trees are tall and lush, and strange, colorful flowers dot the ground around you. The air is filled with the sound of birdsong, and you can feel a gentle breeze blowing through the trees.
