Wishful Thinking!

The first line in this video had a special meaning to me, because that was how I used to think. I didn't want to be a girl, female, or women as each stage reached my life.

Writing with a Pen Name or Real Name?

Many writers prefer to use their real names! After all, who would not like the glory of a successful journey crediting to one own authentic self?

How I Work At Home Without Going Insane

I've been working at home for the past two years. I write. I babysit. I translate paperwork. I pay bills. I take care of my kids. I cook. I clean. I do the many things that others don't. I say this because I'm a single mom, which means I have double duties. That's all!

However, many people think that since I work at home, I have all the time in the world, and that I don't have anything to do. Remarks such as: "What do you do all day at home? Aren't you bored? Since you don't have to go to work, can you do this or can you do me a favor?" are all very familiar to me.

Reach for Life Balance

Stacey, at Create a Balance, called for a group writing project on Life Balance, which is a great idea, and has my head spinning these last few days.

I have always tried to find ways to balance my life, whether it is work, home, or my own responsibilities. We all have so many roles to fill, from being a parent, a daughter/son, a sister/brother, a friend, to being an employee.

Each role we play has its own hiccups. We learn to weave out the good and the bad, and then some how try to find balance in order for us to be able to live with.

Movie to Watch: "Pay It Forward"

This movie is one of my all time favorite! Every since I saw it, I'm moved, with emotions, and with tears! Heck, it doesn't take much for me to be in tears. I even have tears when I watch Homeward Bound.


If the movie is based on emotions, I will be curling into a ball. Pay It Forward grabbed me in a different level. It teaches me to be kind, generous, and try to make the world a better place to live in, for everyone.

Where Are You at in Your Relationship?


I'm a failure in relationship-intimate relationship, to be more specific-and no, it is not self-doubt, or negative thought. I face it as it is! Honest! Truthful! Realistically!

After all, I've only experienced one relationship in my life, and that was with the X for over 20 years! Even now, I don't know how to label that relationship either. Was it love? Was it dependency? Was it really a relationship? What was it?

Long Post or Short Post?

So now that I have covered two topics: "Friends" and "Identity", I'd like to share what I think about the length of the post.


We all have preference in what we want to read, and how long we want to stick around on a certain page. Speaking from my personal view, I am very impatience in the "waiting" area, something that I should work on, really!
