I started my day with exercise and walking around the neighborhood. I liked the music I had been listening to and decided to keep listening while I cool down from the walk. I grabbed some ice from the nearby 7-eleven and was sitting down when I saw a Lakewood police about to turn the corner. There was a woman with her dog panhandling on the median on Sheridan Blvd. The police officer stopped in the left lane to give her a ticket. Although, in the end, he just warned her that to move. Afterward, he parked in the 7-eleven parking area and talked with a co-worker by his car.
After the girl got out of the street, I saw a van pull up in the 7-eleven gas area. Two kids, a tall teenager and an elementary student, got out and went to the light signal and started cleaning the tag writing off. Whatever type of cleanser they had, must be very potent because when they sprayed it once and wiped it away within minutes. There was no logo on the van and the kids had on regular clothes. I was very impressed with the fact that there are people driving around cleaning up the tagging around the neighborhood.
Just before I left that area, I saw a Volkswagen Bus which reminded me of the California days of driving my bus. My bus was named ladybug. It had a red body, with black accents. I remember driving it while I was pregnant with my first child. I loved all the VW’s that were in my life, like my very first one which was a baby blue Rabbit, plus I had a champaign colored Karmann Ghia. I loved traveling with the sound of the engines that sounded like a bird tweeting.
I posted this blog to create a milestone of some of the things I see at any given day. Sometimes my days are full of more incredible things but this was some things that people in my area might find important. Please feel free to comment below or share with others. Thanks for stopping by.

I love the interviews from #AntDaGamer because he brings a professional twist with a gamer point of view. I can’t wait to see more from h.
Starting a project, career, or a business is a big step in life for what I call normal people. To start as a person coming from mental illness, substant abuse, and homelessness is even more challenging. I want to write to get my voice and others heard as a project that may turn into something bigger. I want a career in technology because I enjoy learning about it and having an excuse to have the latest. I also would like to start my own business which will help the homeless with everyday needs and give back to a community that I came from. This is a lot to ask a person who is already middle-aged and just starting to see the potential of life. Here I go anyway.
I want a project that can last forever or just for now and it will be writing. I want to write either professionally or just to have readers that understand where I am coming from. I started this blog a while ago but wasn’t sure if I should keep this name or change it to a more professional one. I want to make it original by giving it its own address. I want to talk about whatever I find interesting or just what my day is like. I may even start a small series where I need followers. I am not sure but this writing may be just the thing I need to put myself where I feel that I can be heard by everyone. I want comments, criticism, and advice from whoever has an opinion. My project could just be this blog or writing a book but whatever it is, it will help me through this tough time.
I want a career in technology because I enjoy using it. This area is vast because it is ever-changing and in almost everyone’s life today. I got offered a training for a certification in this field. I am not sure how far I should go but I at least want some of the toys that will come with the career. I also would like to do some work with people that don’t have experience and bring them up to date, maybe for a minimal price. I think this would help with my project and a small business as well because technology is going to keep progressing and I want to be near the top of that field. A career in technology help desk or something similar might be the perfect job for me and leave me plenty of time for other things.
Here is the biggest thing I want in my life, a small business. I want to make some items to sell to keep a little money in my pocket. I want to use most of the money to help the homeless community. I also want to help my family with something they can do without stressing themselves out. Maybe, I could have a distribution place here (my home), and have one in California (where my family lives). The worst that can happen is that I will only have time for an online store and not for two locations. It is hard to say if any of this will get going. I have the time right now to make some crafts from home to sell but my mental conditions slow me down. This is a dream I want to fulfill.
My mental issues may not allow me to do all the things I want. I can probably write and doing some crafts but a career may be out of my reach. I will not give up on my dreams because there are plenty of people who have dreams and are afraid to pursue them because they are afraid to fail. I found out from one of my weekly groups/classes is that I might have a talent for writing. I know I am good with technology and helping people. I know I can sharpen my crafting skill. Most importantly, will I let myself be discouraged by the obstacles that may hold me down for the rest of my life? The simple answer is no! My mental conditions and other issues are things I will have to work on daily. I will keep my dreams alive.
Please fill free to live comments, advice, or just say what comes to mind. I am always open to learning from anyone, something I have just started learning that could help me in life.
BTW, here is a link to one of the stores I tried to start: http://www.cafepress.com/Chacalitsstuff
This blog may have been originally for things I thought people wanted to know about. I then thought I would post things about my website and share them on here. I finally thought that I could use this site to help improve my writing skills to eventually write a book or something I could make money from. I think now I should do all of the above.
I have a separate blog on #Blogger that I use for interesting stories. I post them here with a link to the original blog because I want to get comments from #WordPress users as well as share them on my social media. That blog is called Myra’s Crazy Blog because there is no consistency to what I write other than unexpected stories. I want to use that blog to see how generating income from Blogger would work. I am not sure yet because I just started posting on a regular basis.
I think this is a wonderful place to make posts that I can get feedback from all types of readers, including experienced writers. I took the blogging course on WordPress to help me learn about posting. I know that some of my classmates were really awesome writers but wasn’t too familiar with the social media aspect of writing. I know that I will eventually get the feedback I need with the posts I put here.
I created a website earlier this month to start upcycling some clothing that I have laying around my home. I wanted to make some things that wouldn’t take much time but will be well needed in the economy today. I also wanted to create so products that could be used for the homeless or by the homeless. Let me explain, I wanted to make a travel kit that homeless people could use but I wanted it to be an option for the customer to buy to distribute themselves or donate the funds for me to distribute the product for the homeless. I wanted my products to be limited at first and then eventually offer homeless people the option of making money with creating some on their own. I wanted to post about that on this blog to give people an idea about the site since this blog is named after the site.
Now I feel that I can do all of the about above. I will post about my other blog to share those posts that can be shared on my personal social media. I will just do a little writing, like this to get opinions from readers/ writers that love to help with beginner writers. I will also post about my website adventures and how the process is progressing. I think I will benefit from all of these post here on this blog.
I would like to thank all the readers that commented on their opinions in advance. I would also like to show my appreciation to all the writers that gave wonderful advice that will help me in becoming a better writer. Please feel free to leave your comment on any of my social media places as well as on the blog. Have a wonderful day!
I think everyone should do some type of crafts because they are very therapeutic. I can sew small things like blankets for babies or sweaters for dogs. I have a friend that likes to make necklaces because he relaxes him. My sister told me of a woman who recycles clothes and shoes by swapping pieces from each other. There are people who make greeting cards by hand and others decorate. No matter what it is everyone can benefit from crafts.
I was searching the web for an easy herbal neck pillow for a manly man who has these tension headaches from his neck. I saw this article and thought he would love this. My friend is very practical, he uses socks for rags to clean anyway so what better for him is a sock for a neck pillow. I will make another for him but for the meantime. He could start with this. Janice, the author of this article is listed on 5minutesformoms.com.
I made a dog sweater for my neighbor’s dog. I took an old shirt and refashioned it. I think I would sew more if I recycled clothes. I have been watching a few ladies on YouTube who reuse material Coolirpa, and Mimi G. Style.
I found someone that I know who does their own thing at home. Aramis Williams. She has her own shop on Etsy called XnithiPrints.
I started this blog post last year thinking of ways I could work from home that would be enjoyable to me. Since then we got a new president that is sending missiles to Syria.
This is a reminder that we don’t have long to focus on the things we love most and make money in a way that will be hard for the president to destroy.
He is a self-made man living in downtown Denver. It is awesome that he has put his self out in the world. This shows that anyone that is determined enough can put themselves out in the world.
This is a post on my blogger account. I didn’t want to repost.
Appaling Ser!vice And A Disgrace
I usually attend “feeds” and other homeless events throughout the year. I mostly do it because I still feel attached to that community even though I am housed. Feeds are places that feed people for free hot or cold meals. These feeds are mostly for the homeless but people of limited means or previously housed still attend them. Most of the feeds are located in the downtown metro area in Denver where I live.
I subscribe to a place called Nextdoor because it is a classified ad site for your neighborhood. It has regular classifieds for things you want to sell, job offers, and local events. My favorite thing on the site is the free items tab. If you have anything you want to give away for free you list there. They also have a crime link for authorities or concerned citizens to list information. I think it is a great community place to participate in.
I was on this site when I saw a posting about a hungry homeless person. I have the link above but I will try to summarize what I read. There was a homeless person who went to a restaurant and asked to see the menu but he was refused. The told he to leave immediately but he was actually being accompanied by a paying customer who invited him there. I would understand if he had asked for free food and/or was panhandling at their place of business, but to treat them bad when they have done nothing wrong speaks about your character and values.
When you are homeless it is embarrassing enough that you are hungry but to be humiliated for it makes you feel worse. I understand that some people are in this situation at their cost but it does mean they deserve to be mistreated. I wanted to post the information of this restaurant to teach them a lesson but I will contact them privately to let them know that they are being reconsidered as a place to dine it because of their lack of compassion.

This game has one the best graphic character details I have seen in awhile. I just got back into gaming but I am willing to spend money on the systems that will post my videos directly.
I have seen all the thing that can be done during the holidays, but most people just want to use you for what they can get out of you. some people think if they offer party favors they should have the run of the mill. Some think if they are providing sexual favors that you should be content to bending over backward to put them at the top your priority list.
People will come to your home spill drinks on your carpet and will not even tell you since it isn’t their floor. They feel they are exempt to cleaning it. They will damage your property and have an explanation why it is okay. “You can just buy another one”, this is their response because they believe that since it was an inexpensive item you have money to waste. You took care of for a long time and now they just come mess things up for you to fix it.
These people come in your home boisterous about the delicious cooking and ruins your pots/pans with the saying, “I will buy you another one”. Of course, you never get it. Obviously, if they had a bunch of things of their own and valued other people’s property they would understand why their visits become fewer and fewer.

Some people think they can fix a problem that their friends caused with deciding what solution would make it okay. For example, let’s say Mary had a Schwinn beach cruiser bike, she lends it to John but Sally his girlfriend broke it. John decides he will give Mary a cheap Walmart Murray bike and thinks that should solve the issue. John didn’t consult Mary or ask if that was the type of bike she had. John thinks he is doing the right thing because he replaced a bike with another bike. Unfortunately, some things can’t be replaced. I heard of a similar issue, but it was a piece from a collection and the whole collection needed to be replaced.
This 2016 is the year of not being stepped on because you have a kind heart. Time to move up a notch and don’t look back for people that like it down below. Create something in your life that you are proud of and make yourself feel good inside. Give without validation. Don’t always take from others but help others. I want to start helping only those who want my help and will do something about it. If you want to improve your life, I will help you get started but it is up to you to keep it going.
My New Year’s resolution is to work on me. I want to change things about myself that I was afraid to change because of my friends. I now know that they were not friends and don’t really care anyway. I will need to change my lifestyle and my household. My association will change to like minded individuals. I will loose quite a few connections, but I need to step my life up and if you aren’t moving in my direction and happy where you are, I will be leaving you behind.
You warm up my heart and my soul is overjoyed.
I feel like I am in a garden of sunflowers and it is snowing.
When you are near me, I want to frolic everywhere.
You are like a video game that lets me level up all the time.
You remind me of a seasoned tri-tip waiting for my teeth to sink in.
You are my beloved and I can not be with out you.
