Rest In Peace Princess Leia: Carrie Fisher Dies at 60

This year totally sucks for Hollywood...It has lost so many great actors and 2016 seemingly is leaving without taking a couple more people with it. I saw Star Wars when I first came to the U.S. and it was one of the greatest  movie I ever saw in my life...Princess Leia was one of my favorite characters because she was strong and fearless and didn't just cry and wimpier. When sh*t got real she helped herself and choked out who she wanted...I will forever remember her as a fearless warrior who fought to save her people and help out her then unknown brother lol...I love it and will forever be a fan.

RIP Princess Leia- May the Force be with you

Update It's Been A While

Hey kids,

It's been a while..but I am back and trying to get back into blogging as well as my writing. I am working a lot more now since I finally landed a job, but it takes up a lot of my time. I am on vacation right now until next year and I've been trying to type up my latest sorry forever, but so far it's been a struggle. I will get it done hopefully by next week and published early 2017.

In other news I've been painting as a way of bonding with my son...here is some of my work. I think with the time I have off I am going to focus on my writing a trying to draw up what it should look like. I'll see you all later.

K DRAMA ADDICT

Hey everyone!

So it's been a while and boy can I tell you I've missed writing to you all. So I haven't bee up to much just teaching and playing games, but I've left my game because I've been watching so much K-Dramas aka Korean Dramas. If you haven't watched a K-Drama man are you missing out. Some of these drama are so good. Of course I have to say sorry but these dramas are mainly for woman, girls, boys with emotions. SO here are some of the dramas I've been watching. The most recent on is 

#1. CheeseintheTrap 
Cheese in the Trap
Can I tell you that I loved this drama so much ....so so  much first because Seo Kang Joon, but the whole cast was totally amazing. If you watch this drama you will be cheering for Yoo Jung and Seol the two main characters all the way to the end..the end oh yeah don't watch the last 10 mins. of the last episode if you know what's good for you TRUST ME! If you are on DramaFever and read the reviews for the last episode you will understand what I'm talking about.

Next up one that just want into my all time favorite and I can watch this again like two more times list is 

#2 Oh My Venus
Oh My Venus

I love love this series because of the two main actors Si Ji Sub and Shin Min Ah are totally amazing together as the main characters Kang Joo Eun (Shi Min Ah) and Kim Young Ho (So Ji Sub). Totally out of shape lawyer loses her guy to another woman and she tries to find away to get back to her old sexy self...Here come  Young Ho to save the day after Joo Eun passes out on plane and he says to save her...The story develops nicely and the two characters slowly but surely end up in a relationship..I highly recommend this one...WATCH IT!! WATCH IT. Oh yeah if you are so into Korean rap you should check out So Ji Sub's songs on Youtube ...He is really good.

#3 Moorim School
Moorim School

Awesome awesome series....I also recommend this series...hopefully it has an amazing ending and nothing crappy like some of the K-Dramas that are out. If you love mystery, mystical and totally hot male leads you're gonna love this one.

#4 Noble , My Love
Noble, My Love

That's it for now I just thought I would get back in there and write something...Love these check them out on DramaFever.

CAN A TEACHER GET A FREE METROCARD OR WHAT?




Okay readers so personal thought. While I was getting on the bus today, a crossing guard got on the bus with me and showed her ID and got on the bus for free. While I who also work for the City of New York had to pay my $2.75 so I could get to my next job. I am a substitute teacher, but I am on call everyday and am on the bus or train all the time. 



So why is it that teachers can't get a MetroCard?

Are we unworthy of the pass or something? Seeing that we wake up at the break of dawn to get to where we have to go and then take public transportation, most of the time I think we should get one. Personal spending $116.00 dollars each month out of my paycheck is a little uncalled for, since I am living paycheck to paycheck. I am sure that the MTA will find some other reason to hike up the fair to $3.00 dollars at some point and then the monthly MetroCard will also go up in cost.

What are your thoughts? Should teachers be entitled to free MetroCards OR Should all city works be entitled to MetroCards?

IT'S BEEN A WHILE



Hey all it's ME!!! Well it sure has been a while since I posted anything here, and I wanted to come by and give and update on what is going on around me, with me, and for me.


Life is so a big ball of stress, but you have to push through it and smile or else you will totally drown. So let's first start off with what's going on around me. Well most of you know that I live in New York and last week was a total mess with traffic and all since the Pope was in town. There were a lot of people out there showing love to the Pope for his visit to the United States. I only got to see him on TV, because I wasn't going to go out there  plus, I like my sanity. Getting through any cowards in New York will drive you totally crazy. But it's great to see so many people show their faith, since so much of us really don't. 

Whatelse??? Well unless you are one of the mold people or living in a cave you totally saw the Super Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse. It was amazing! I spent about an hour outside with my son watching it and he was totally amazed by the moon changing color. I was so happy to watch it with him, because when the next one happens I'll be in my 50's and him in his 20's. It's really amazing all the natural things that happen around us and above us. So now and then it's nice to take notice of the wonders that are universe let's us enjoy for free. Source: Flickr. Original Title: “Blood Moon Suspended in space” by Sudhamashu Hebbar.

Now we are going to move on with what's happening with ME! Well I've been a a HUGH slump when it comes to my writing. I haven't really written anything new and my old projects have yet to be finished. The last story that I wrote ALTERED GENESIS, is still on there on Smashwords.com waiting for you all to grab a copy. But for right now I haven't done anything new. I have been thinking of ways to finish up other projects I've been working on such as, the next installment of The Adventures of Marco and Carla, which I am hoping will be done maybe by the end of the year. I've been working on two other stories besides that and I don't know the they will be finished. 

I am hoping that this block that I am having will go away soon. HOPEFULLY!!!

I am back to work (Woohooo)! With low book sales, sadly I cannot retire and just sit around and write books. So it's back to substitute teaching. Why do I like teaching? Well besides the fact that I get most of my ideas when I am at work, I also love being able to teach those that are willing to listen and learn something that's not on TV or YouTube. So far so good.

Well now what's going on for me?? Nothing much really just working. Over the summer I went back home to Jamaica and it was an amazing trip. Why do you ask? Because I got time to chill and relax and spend some time with my family. I also got to go out and do some well earned fishing. For the first time in my life I got seasick and I was totally pissed off at my self, since I pride myself on being the granddaughter of a great fisherman (R.I.P). Oh yeah!! So if like anyone wants to buy me a plane ticket to South Korean, please do!! I've been thinking about taking a trip to South Korean for awhile now. It's on the list of my top 10 places I want to visit. It's like tied with my other number one Japan. Hopefully I get to go soon, because I've been drowning myself in Korean Dramas. My latest obsession which ended "Scholar Who Walks at Night" AMAZING... 

But well that's enough...Hopefully I will be updating you all about what is coming out next for me and other things that I love and I think you should look into loving also. 

Have and amazing Day.....joh-eun halu doeseyo!!

GRAMMAR CHECKER- GRAMMARLY.COM

Hi All,

So I recently released my book Altered Genesis, and wouldn't you know it, after uploading the book and ordering a copy I found some  mistakes that I did not catch before publishing. So I had to spend more time and more money fixing the book to re-upload it again, and send off for more copies. My point is it's always good to have a second peer of eyes going over what you've written. Those eyes can catch all the small mistakes that could cost you big. We sometimes hire an editor to help us with our books, but what if those editors also need eyes watching them.


I was recently told about Grammarly.com which if you didn't figure by the name is a website that serves a second peer of eyes for you and freelance editors. GREAT!! A site that will catch all those mistakes that you and your editor might overlook. I wanted to share the infographic that was sent to me. The information provided is great for writers, who are looking to hire freelance editors to help make our books a better read.  After visiting their website, I saw that this product is not only used by writers, but also students, business people, bloggers, and people who just want to write better.


So stop by Grammarly.com and find out what they are all about.

JUST SAYING: SLEEPING BEAUTY

SOooo I am watching Sleeping Beauty with my son and I've seen it before, but I was looking at it with a different eye. At the part where Beauty meets the Prince in the woods, I found it strange that this girl is in the woods and some strange man comes out of nowhere and starts talking to you and grabbing on to your hand and you don't scream or kick him in the face? Happily Disney just gave me a conversation with my son that started as such, when you see a woman singing by herself in the woods, run..don't stop and talk to her just run.
