Fashion and Style

Thank you so much for joining me on my journey. Please share your journey with me. This is about my life and my style. Each life and style is different and it is fun to examine it, pull it apart and rebuild it constantly. Sometimes it feels as if life is ebbing and flowing around us in pure chaos and we need a break. We need a  plan to move the tides around us in an orderly fashion and in our favor. Here is where our style comes in. Our life takes order and shape in our daydreams, and on the pages of our planners, and comes to fruition in what we choose to surround ourselves with in the every day. Make those things that you choose to surround yourself with, things that you truly desire. – Jolee (Genevajo)

Fashion is not something that exist in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. — CoCo Chanel

Using YouTube to Improve my Life

My house is much cleaner than it used to be. My methods for cleaning and keeping it clean have changed drastically. There is a ton of excellent advice from some wonderful you tubers who have created the most helpful videos. I read somewhere that people much younger than me watch “tv” almost exclusively on youtube. I myself have become a huge fan of getting information and entertainment from youtube. After finding and following some favorite you tubers, I got inspired to join in the fun and start to make videos of my own. I love it and hope that in the future that I will become skilled enough to create some videos that will help others!

The Real Reason that I Blog

The real reason that I created this blog is to practice my writing skills. I am not a terrific writer and I want to hone what little skills that I do have because I want to write a book. I don’t know if those of you who blog do it for the same reason. I am guessing that not everyone uses a blog as a practice area for writing. I am hoping that if I commit to coming up with something to write about, that perhaps it will help me get a flow going. I did not go to school for writing so I have not learned the skills necessary to write anything interesting that anyone would love to read. I want to learn to make the words flow like they do in the books that I enjoy. The book will be years in the writing and I have started it. I am hoping to be able to share my stories and if ONE person reads them, I will feel that I will have been successful in this lifetime endeavor.

Ignoring my Blog

Geez! I have really been ignoring my blog. I just want you to know that I think about it all of the time and then never get around to putting some words down. I have started making some youtube videos. I know, weird ..right? I just really enjoy some youtube channels and follow a few special you tubers religiously. I have found that youtube is really social and that we tubers have a lot to say to one another. It is a great way to meet people from all over the world and I truly enjoy how different and how much alike we are. What started as a quick social and filming experience had turned into a truly social interaction experiment. Hope to see you on your channel soon!

The American Dream is gone.

Stolen from the people of the United States is the dream that if they work hard, they can have what they need to survive. Those days are long gone. Lazy voters have killed our democracy. We’ve allowed corporations to monopolize though we knew that it would be to the detriment of America. We’ve forced small business to pay for our healthcare, then priced it so high that there is no way for them to compete or grow. We have cut out the possibility of the American dream. We allow our corporations to move to a country where they don’t pay taxes back into the American economy and only take from us.

We get preached to every day about how it is the fault of the immigrants. It is not. One would have to be a complete idiot to think that and yet it seems that millions suck up that notion every day and take it as gospel. Keeping American’s Christian is the only way to keep them so naive. In God we Trust, but in our fellow man we see nothing. Just another person taking our resources or breathing our air. We have become a nation of self blamers and are no longer looking up to where the money is going and asking, “why”? Why has our government forsaken us? The answer is simple. Greed has taken over and our country is now corporation driven.

In this world where “black lives matter”, no one’s life matters, anymore. So much so, that healthcare in our country has become a luxury for few. You can think to yourself “hey, I am doing ok..I am going to make it. I am going to survive. I may even prosper.” However, what come next is an illness that sets you back, takes your job, your home and your family.

The rules and laws have been so twisted in favor of major corporations that I don’t know if it is even possible to ever bring back the American Dream. How can Small American upstarts ever compete when they have to pay for an extremely over priced healthcare system that funnels money up and not down to the people that it is supposed to be working for?

I am tired. So, very tired.
