You were expecting to see a Writing 101 assignment, weren’t you? Well, today’s assignment requires a lot of thinking .. but not really. Basically, I have to do a character study on an interesting person I’ve met in the past year .. and I’m having a hard time coming up with someone to write about. But once I think of someone, the rest will come easy (I assume/hope).

Ugh, and so much for writing anything this weekend. My lack of motivation is really starting to get to me, and I just don’t know what to do about it. Maybe I will just start to take my thyroid medication at night instead of not take it all .. I don’t take it because I’m supposed to take it an hour before breakfast, but when I wake up I just want to eat! So I set my alarm to go off an hour before I get up to remind me to take it, but I am just too tired to get up and get some water. I know I should leave it at my bed, but then the cat will get to the before me, and I can’t keep the cat out of my room because I’m in the loft. I know you’re supposed to take it on an empty stomach because of absorption, but from what I’ve read on the internet, it’s not so bad to take it at night. I guess I’ll do this until I talk to my doctor. Whatever. When you don’t have any motivation, what do you to get yourself going?

But back to not writing this weekend .. I actually meant to do something on here this weekend, but I don’t want to mention what it is until I finish it completely. I also need to into the technical (for lack of better term) aspects of it .. meh, I don’t know. It’ll make so much more sense once I get around to it. I also wanted to do a couple reviews for my PINCHme items I got in the mail last week, but to be honest, I haven’t used either yet .. but I’m going to use the one item I received tonight when I shower. Shit, I still have to do my official review for Influenster’s Carefree #FreshIsFierce campaign on Facebook .. of course I’ll put it on here too.

Other than that, my weekend was fine. I didn’t do anything, like usual. Yesterday was my son’s 8th birthday. My dad went to his party; lucky him. Maybe I’ll be there for his next birthday .. or better yet, host it =]

I need to get on the ball about finding a job, which goes back to the motivation thing. That, and plus the fact that I literally sleep for 12 hours a day. I’m not even going to bed at like 3:00am anymore .. maybe 1:00am at the latest. And I don’t wake up until at least 12:30-1:00pm. Fuck, man! But I need to get into some temp agencies. I need to do this. My dad’s getting sick of me, and I’m getting sick of myself. It really does suck man. Plus, once I start working, I can legit have more say about house stuff, like curtains and kitchen tables.

Oh hey, what’s your opinions on bloggers [like myself] who curse in their posts?

I ask because most of the time I try not out of respect, but sometimes I just want to. To be honest, I curse [a lot] in real life and in the privacy of my personal Facebook, so I don’t care if others do or where they do it. I don’t want to lose you guys because of something petty, so I won’t continue to do so if most of you don’t want to me to.

Well, I just wanted to give a little “hi” update for my awesome followers; I should have an entry for tomorrow’s (and maybe today’s!) Writing 101 assignment.. Have a great week! Enjoy this weather before it gets too hot ;D

UGH! I’ve been super procrastinating =/ I meant to post on Thursday, and that got delayed, so I was going to post that post (along with stuff about Friday and Saturday) on Saturday night and then post some influence/review stuff on Sunday .. but now it’s Monday night, and I haven’t done any of that. Instead, I’m doing my first assignment for Writing 101: Unlock The Mind.

I’m supposed to write about anything for 20 minutes straight, but I’m not supposed to think about what to write. Kinda sucks because it would be nice to post the entry I almost finished on Saturday night, or what I wanted to talk about yesterday, or even just do some promoting for my influence/review stuff. But I’ll be good and do what I’m actually supposed to do. At least I don’t have horrible writers block =P

One thing I am going to do though is I’m not going to immediately post this after 20 minutes is up; I have to edit it before I do that. And if any of you wonder what I mean whenever I say I have to edit stuff .. well this is usually how I do it: I write all of my entries in Notepad. Then I copy and paste it onto WordPress so I can (not necessarily in this order) spell check, add links, pictures, video, etc., format text, think of tags and the title, choose a category or two, and figure out what I want my Twitter LINK post (and now Google+ and Tumblr .. I rarely use them, but if I want to gain a major following [see below] I gotta do what I gotta do, right?) to say. Most of the time, it seems like that takes longer than writing the actual post!

Speaking of Twitter, I’m kind of starting to get a little following on their, yay! I mean, I only have ~150 followers, while I follow ~250 people, but but numbers are steadily rising; anywhere from 10-20 a day for both sides. I actual feel kinda special because of this =] and I’m not even promoting myself! So I seriously have no idea how they find me. But I ended up changing my Twitter bio today from “I like to think that I’m cute and funny although I’d like to be hott and hilarious, but I’m probably just average and corny .. YOU BE THE JUDGE”  to “ , , ?? trying to learn anything and everything about what I want to do. FIND ME EVERYWHERE; my username is almost always “. Now I feel that might help me attract more follows and for the right reasons, don’t you agree? What do you think about the new bio? What would change, if anything?

5 more minutes, so I guess this’ll be the last thing I’ll say in this entry. When I first made this blog and started blogging, I said I had no idea what I wanted to blog about, and that I really started it because I wanted to journal. I still want to journal, but it really does seem like all of the good blogs have a few topics they discuss. Since I’ve received my Influenster and PINCHme samples, and I have a Smiley360  one on the way .. maybe this blog could be be a review blog? And I guess that’s what it means to be an influencer, right? (20 MINUTES IS UP! really, it took 5 minutes to write this paragraph? uhh, k) I know there are blogs that are like that, plus more, such as where to find free stuff, giveaways, etc., so maybeee one day I’ll get into that too .. but we’ll see, cos alot of that stuff seems kinda scammy. What do you think about blogs like that? Any and all advice is welcome =]

Alright, it’s 8:25pm, and it’s time for me to edit and post so I can get on with writing some good content =P Have a good night =D

Hey everyone! Happy April! I’ve been around, but not WordPress, unfortunately. I feel like a dick for never writing, and when I do, I say I’m gonna start back up again, but never do. Ugh! If I had just followed through when I got my PC back .. but nooo, I decided I wanted to be lazy. But I still continued to do research and such on blogging and how to be successful in this and so on and so forth.

I really need to get back into the swing of things though, especially now. I say that because on Monday I received my very first VoxBox from Influenster, yay! Don’t know much about Influenster, VoxBoxes, and all that jazz? Well basically, Influenster is a website that you join and write reviews, ask questions, hook up your social media accounts, etc. Sometimes the send you VoxBoxes, which is basically stuff sent to you to review on your social media websites. The more of a following you have, and the better you do, the more products you’ll receive to review. Cool, eh? I think I explained it right =P and if you want to know more, or sign up! Just click here, please (it’s a my referral link). Or, you can check out my badge, will I’ll be posting sometime tonight. But ya, since I received this VoxBox, I feel like it’s an awesome time for me to hopefully start writing in here again, especially if I’m gonna be doing reviews for these guys! Oh, and also because I signed up for Writing 101, ha! I probably should have finished Blogging 101 first, but fuck it .. Blogging will come around again. And it’s still by The Daily Post, so it’ll be good. I just hope it’s not TOOOOO challenging. But maybe it’ll also help me learn how to write better (ha) .. as in not always the words “but”, “oh, and…”, etc.

But ya .. what’s been going on with me the past couple months? Psssh, not shit! It sucks! No luck in finding a job (although I’m not looking hard enough), and still no motivation to do anything.  Well .. I have a little more motivation than before, but still. I started taking my thyroid medication, but not everyday. Not sure if I explained this before, but I’m supposed to take it everyday “an hour before breakfast”. I’m kind of nocturnal, so I go to bed anywhere between 2-5am, and wake up between 1-4pm .. yeah, I sleep a long time. But when I wake up, I want to eat! I can’t wait. So I put an alarm on my phone which wakes me up at 9am telling me to take it .. but 3/4 of the time I just turn it off. And that 1/4 I do want to take it, 1/2 the time I don’t even have water by me, and I’m not beat for going downstairs to get some. But the other half I remember to bring water up. Oh, and speaking of not working .. I’ve been planning on going to a few temp agencies in the next week or two to update my resume (I’ve worked with all the ones I’m planning on going to). And April has always been a good month for me to find work. SOO, wish me luck. I definitely need it.Tired of being a bum on my couch .. and speaking of couch! I finally got a real bed! Apparently it came from my dad’s girlfriend’s sister’s house. It’s just a twin, wahh. But it works. It’s comfyish. I still can’t sleep on my stomach though due to my back issues which sucks because I like to, but when I do I wake up in SOO much pain and can’t move. But yeah, it also came with 2 little dressers and 2 end tables .. none match, but who cares. I need to clean up there, but again .. laziness. And my sister needs to help cos of the shit is her clothes .. I told her if it’s not put away by the time I get around to cleaning up and organizing up there, I’m stuffing it all into a closest . Which wouldn’t be too bad on her part, but she loves to whine. I just want it to look not like a mess. Especially since once I start working and paying rent, it’s legit going to be mine.

Hmm, what else is new? I made 2 vlogs lol. Check em out below. They suck though. I’m not talking about anything interesting (well, maybe. and it was interesting to me), the lighting isn’t great, etc. etc. And it was recording on the front/screen camera of an iPhone 4. I haven’t made anymore though cos I ended up dropping my phone in the toilet =X like, a month ago. Luckily it survived, but the sound doesn’t work on my phone anymore except the ringer when people call .. no texts, alerts, music, or videos. Blah. Plus my microphone was shit before, that’s why I’m kinda screaming in my videos. So I don’t know if it works at all now; I doubt it. I was hoping my phone did totally break though, cos then that’d mean I’d probably get a new phone. Which I can’t get even though my line is eligible for an upgrade because my dad doesn’t wanna renew my contract since I haven’t paid him for my line in over a year. But once I get a job and start paying rent and the bill I can get a new phone .. definitely you gonna get a Galaxy or a Note! Fuck an iPhone!

Well, I think that’s all I have to talk about tonight. Here’s my question for y’all .. What keeps you motivated to keep on blogging? Where do you come up ideas on what to blog about? Any tips, advice, etc. you’re willing to offer?

Thanks for reading .. I hope y’all stay tuned. I WILL be back, even if it’s just for my VoxBox reviews =P Night!

PS – You’ll learn more about this first VoxBox in one of my next posts.
