Blood and Refugee Crisis

As many people know, there is a refugee crisis right now. Lots of refugees that no one wants to help. You may also know that the Red Cross has asked for blood donations, as their blood supply is critically low. Though you may not think so, these two crises have something in common.

I’d like to start by saying that I am 21 years old. I have never given birth, though many women my age have. But I do have a child. I adopted one. Four, actually. And they are all my children.

Stress of the Wealthy

What do wealthy people actually stress about? They seem to have everything, so why should they stress?

It’s important to remember not to view the wealthy, whether it’s the 1% or just someone who has more than you, as other. They are not other. They are still people, just like you and me, with feelings, and ambitions. Even though many people find it hard to relate to them, they are still people, just like us.

The Broken Clock

I’d like to think about the phrase The broken clock is right twice a day. We all know that the hands of a broken clock stay just where they were when the battery died, or whatever happened that caused it to stop working. But at that time, every day, the clock is right again. Does it stop being broken for that minute?

The Thing About Daily Blogging

Daily blogging is nice in theory. But it’s hard.

I’ve always watched YouTubers daily vlog, and one thing that I’ve noticed is that some days, their videos are short because they didn’t do anything that day. Or maybe they didn’t do anything worth sharing. Some days they just don’t have the energy to film and edit videos. And that all definitely transfers to blogging.

On the Experience of Others

I was recently directed to a tumblr page, and only warned that the person directing me to the page found it offensive. I didn’t know what to expect, but I figured I’d give it a look. I’m not going to direct you to the page mostly because I don’t want to supply any more traffic to the site. But also, the creator of the page has been getting a lot of rude and violent messages and I don’t want to risk any more mean message being sent.

One Word Photo Challenge: Chameleon

When we think of Chameleons, obviously, we all think of the lizard who can change color to blend in with their environment. Not surprisingly, the only other definition refers to people who change their opinions to suit those around them.

So, for this challenge, which I haven’t participated in for a while, I have this photo of a tiny fluff ball blending in to it’s environment.
