Prompt for the Day-“Saturday Night”

The apparent extroverts on the Daily Post division of Word Press’ staff decided that “Saturday Night” should be the creative launching board for today’s creative endeavors.  The also added one single statement to ignite our imaginative sparks further:”Tell us about the most exciting big night out you had recently.”

Our Saturday Nights

Here lately, consist of heading off to catch some much-needed slumber.  Not exactly the life of the party these days.  After about 5 PM each night we are pretty well dead due to exhaustion.  We stay up until 9 PM to finish watching the evening news (weather report). Back in our 20’s and 30’s we could just about last until the next morning staying awake.  We had a much more enjoyable environment back then, both in MO and CO.  There were good friends in our lives back then that would party with us until we all were worn out.

Miss meeting with our group of friends.  I still keep in touch over the internet with some of them, but it is just not the same!  Call a few people on my cell phone, but that is not as good as face to face talking to them.

 

Please Help Fight this Evil Disease

The medicine my neurologist has put me on for my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.

Prompt for the Day: “Kick It”

The demonstrative people from the Daily Post department of Word Press constructed the prompt for today’s work of “Kick It” to inspire us.  Then they asked a single direct question-“What’s the 11th item on your bucket list?”

My Bucket List

Does not exist.  I only set short-term goals now.  There is absolutely no way I will ever reach outer space while I am still living.  That was the first dream I ever had.  The dream was crushed when I learned there was a height requirement for astronauts during my freshman year in college.  I already got to live in the state of Colorado for seven glorious years.  Worked for many years as a successful network engineer, so I have lived the best job that I could achieve due to my short stature.

Fell in love with and married the man of my dreams.  We have been married for over twenty wonderful years so far!  Made friends all over the world, now that it is so interconnected by the internet.  (Here I thought only geeks like myself would pursue that medium while growing up back in the middle of nowhere!)

Set 3 goals for Blogging 201

We started our exciting excursion today into the WordPress class Blogging201.  Finished 101 earlier this year.  Have never taken any of their writing classes.  I might try writing 101 in the future.  Been successfully slaughtering the English language since I spoke my first words as an infant.

Our first assignment was to write down three goals we want to accomplish by finishing this course.  So here they are in the barest black and white.

My 3 goals are quite simple.
1: Help other people who are weakened, by either illness or old age.
2: Make a profit from blogging.
3: Protect children and animals from harm.

Numbers 1 & 3 come from my personal beliefs.  We should stand up for the underdogs in this world whenever and where ever  we can.  Number 2 just needs to be done to help support my family:  My husband, me, and a dorky cat we adopted from the humane society.

Need to start making money to justify the cost of hosting my own web presence on the internet.  Am starting to regret asking my husband to let me purchase an internet site for my own use.  Was told by the people I follow on blogs that having your own site was the way to profit from the internet.

My mother taught me not to believe everything I read in life.  Seems she was right once again!

Have to learn how to get my badge from the 101 class displayed on my site that I now own on the internet.  Have it proudly displayed on my WordPress site, but would like to be able to show it on my private site as well.  Wonder if any of my classmates have figured out how to move our badges onto other sites?  Will have to pursue this investigation further.

Curious as to what our assignment will be for tomorrow’s class.  What challenges will the present us with to try to confound our writing skills.  Mike skills need sharpening!
