I’m here… Part II

I started my blog in November 2014, and I am proud to say that I am still here. I have been writing about different things that I notice or have affected me personally, covering topics from my family and Boyfriend’s family, hobbies, politics, my hometown Chicago and my new home Central Texas, and life in general.

I have written in various forms for most of my life – poems, journals, stories when I was younger, and news articles for the school paper. I did it because I liked it and it helped to get thoughts and feelings on paper. I wouldn’t say that my poetry was great but I enjoyed writing it, and it helped me process life in my own way. I haven’t written poetry in a long time, maybe 2-3x in the past eight years, which I have tied to working in social services. My jobs have entailed lots of people time, sometimes dealing with lots of stress, and I would gain satisfaction from helping others but also be left drained mentally and emotionally.

I really enjoy blogging- writing blog posts and reading blog posts. I wish I had given this a-go sooner than I did but I am glad I am  here. Kind of reminds me of the saying about Texas, “I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as soon as I could,” which also pertains to me. I hope to gain more comfort in sharing my thoughts publicly, though in a most anonymous manner, and I hope to develop skill at building different types of posts. I plan to continue writing about various topics, including family, life, politics, and other topics as they peak my interest.

Again, welcome to blogdaysofchrell!

Chicago pastor invites Republicans…

Rev. Corey Brooks is a courageous man for expressing his beliefs, standing up for his people, and daring to buck the trends. I wish him continued strength and success in leading his flock, standing up for the safety and welfare of his parishners, and fighting back against the Chicago machine that is no longer working.

Time for Thorns

A black pastor in Chicago  says Democrats  have failed his people.   of course they have.   Now we shall see who besides Rand Paul accepts the invitation to speak and presents the conservative case.   I hope all of them do,  but I’m pretty sure that won’t happen.   I view this as a tremendous opportunity.
