part 2 of 3 Writing 101 assingment

Write about a loss: something (or someone) that was part of your life, and isn’t any more. Today’s twist: Make today’s post the first in a three-post series.

If you have not read part 1 go on over give it a read then come on back to see what happend next

I got to a place that was in the mountains and it was very pretty, but I was not happy to be there at all, I refused to cooperate. My parents checked me in and about 3 hours after they did they told me they had to go. I felt sad and abandoned once again I screamed, I cried and I tried to run after them as they pulled away. Some staff chased me down and tackled me to the ground. I fought and fought as hard as I could, in my mind I thought “I will fight you off you can’t keep me here”. While tears ran down my cheeks I continued to fight, and they ended up calling a “Code Green”. Where all available staff come to help out. Well they ended up giving me a shot. I had found out later it was a mix of Haldol and Thorazine.  I started to feel that weird sensation come over me as I had with the  Schnapps and again the pain, anger and sadness, seemed to have melted away. While I was there I had figured out very quickly that if I acted out and got into fight they gave me a pill or a shot to calm me down.  I loved that calm feeling. So I was causing a lot of trouble because I did not want to feel.

Fast forwarding to age 15 yet again I was at a different place this time in Texas. I was still doing the same behaviors as I always had. At this point the Drs had me on all kinds of medications that made me tired all the time. I was super behind in school because I couldn’t stay awake in class. I was still starting fights and getting into trouble, so that I could get the magic pills that took all the pain away. Little did I know and the Drs failed to realize that I had become addicted to them. At 16 I was in a place I didn’t want to be addicted to pills and being mistreated by staff.

Well I had a friend in there she was always in trouble, and getting into take downs with the staff a lot. Then the worst had happened the councilors had called us all into the class room. There were 4 of them plus 2 therapists and we could tell they were going to tell us we were in trouble or  something had happened. Well the news they gave us was that my friend had died during a restraint with staff. They said her heart gave out and she stopped breathing. I started sobbing uncontrollably and instantly didn’t want to feel the sadness that I was feeling so I got up and I tried to run. I got half way across a huge field before a staff member grabbed my arm and he seemed to feel bad for how I was feeling this time. We had grown to like most of the staff and I was pretty close with this one. I just hugged him instead of fighting as I normally had done.

A day or so later the other girls and I wanted to do a memorial service, We put one together. Had written poems, speeches that spoke about what we loved about our friend, we planted a tree for her and we played Britney Spears Where Are You Now which I still sometimes listen to and think about her almost 13 years later. I remember the other girls and I would talk about what we had thought really happened which I am not going to say,  due to it just being speculation. I can remember thinking why would my parents leave me here after she had died. So I had made it my goal to get kicked out like I had done in the past.

Thank you for reading part 2 of my 3 part series. If you would like to read part 3 you can Subscribe to my blog Like Mommymakeandmore on Facebook or follow me on twitter to know when I post.

I hope you are having a WONDERFUL day.

 

Writing 101 assingment 7

hi all

I have fallin a bit behind on my writing 101 assignment. Due to needing to get my box reviews done and the kids going to birthday parties along with some school things but here is assignment 7

Write a post based on the contrast between two things — whether people, objects, emotions, places, or something else..Today’s twist: write your post in the form of a dialogue. You can create a strong opposition between the two speakers — a lovers’ quarrel or a fierce political debate, for example. Or you could aim to highlight the difference in tone and style between the two different speakers —your call!Today’s twist: write your post in the form of a dialogue. You can create a strong opposition between the two speakers — a lovers’ quarrel or a fierce political debate, for example. Or you could aim to highlight the difference in tone and style between the two different speakers — your call!

Scared and alone on a dark dark night. A bottle and I were having a fight. “your alone” it said I respond with I know,

“your afraid” it whispered I yelled “shut up”. Its temping but I must not its bad but what if its not this time.

It could be different this time. In the back of my mind I know better then that.

I pick up the bottle and throw it across the room and it shatters and whimpers “you hurt me”.

I raise my voice and say NO you have hurt me and this has been going on far to long.

I can not allow it anymore our relationship can not continue!

I try and walk out but then I stop and I start to think of all the fun we have had in the past.

The late night parties and the hang outs but then it comes back to me that it is poison and we have gotten into so much trouble too.

That’s when it is not there when I need it most and time is  when I need to feel and not just numb the pain.

I need help if I am going to move on. I walk into the arms of another and its name is sobriety.

Eyebrow and Eyelash Brush Kit

 

Crave Naturals Brow and Lash Kit

Crave Naturals Brow and Lash Kit

 

Hi all,

recently I was asked if I wanted to try The new Crave Naturals Brow and Lash Kit. So I checked them out and from what I can find they have not been in business very long but I’ll tell you what I think they hit the nail on the head with this handy little kit. First thing I love is the packaging and the logo. You can bring on a vacation with you or if you wanted to you could put it, along with a few other smaller brushes in your purse for on the go.

     The next thing I love is the angled brush is really soft, so its not going to feel scratchy or uncomfortable if you are using it for applying gel or powder the lower lash line

I first used the eyebrow brush to straighten my eyebrows then I used Benefit Gimmie brow to fill them in. After applying my revealed palette eye shadow I used Urban Decays Perversion (from a past ipsy bag) Then combed out my lashes with the lash comb.  After that I used some Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel (from my April Birchbox) and combed them to evenly distribute the brow gel with the stoolie. I must say am very happy with the results.

Birchbox September 2014

Birchbox September 2014

 

Hey all

I know its a bit late in the month but here is my Birchbox for September. Better late then never I suppose. If you don’t know about Birchbox already go check out my Subscriptions box post then come back here and check out what I got.

I have to say how very impressed I was with Birchbox this month. I got 5 very decent sized Items, in my opinion. They are definitely all are big enough for me to decide weather I want to buy the full size or not. Now Birchbox has started something new, On August 26th I received an E-mail offering me the chance to have a choice of a Fashionista  Forward box or to pick 1 of 4 different samples and they would match the rest according to my profile. I didn’t see anything in the 4 samples that I really wanted so I chose the Fashionista box. I already knew before it came what I was getting in my box. Which I guess could be a downside to the people who like the surprise. I myself like the change because I feel like I get a little more control of what comes in my box.

Now what did I get in my box

This item has to be the one I am most excited about is a 3 oz Macadamia Natural Oil Flawless cleansing conditioner with a $15.00 value and you can also get these in 8oz for $33.00 on Birchbox.com

The next item in my box is dr. brandt pores no more vacuum cleaner the one I got is a .25 with a $1.25 value. The full size is a 1 oz and is $45.00.

The next item is Naobay Body Radiance Lotion the full size is 8.4 oz and is $24.00. The one I received from Birchbox is 1.01 oz and is a $2.37 value

Next up is  Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner in Silver and it is .03 and is a $5.33 the full size is $16.00 and it is a 0.04 oz.

and the last item is Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Supreme Mascara and the one I got is a 0.2 oz and has a value of $1.25 and the full size comes in 0.35 oz and has a value of $25.00

I did receive another E-mail on September 24th letting me customize my October box and this time I chose 1 of the 4 offered items. So we shall see what happens with the rest of the box. I am not sure if Birchbox plans to keep letting people customize their boxes but I for one hope they do.

Day 6 Writing 101 Assignment

I am trying to catch up on my assignments I am a bit behind but here’s assignment 6. Who’s the most interesting person (or people) you’ve met this year?

Our stories are inevitably linked to the people around us. We are social creatures: from the family members and friends who’ve known us since childhood, to the coworkers, service providers, and strangers who populate our world (and, at times, leave an unexpected mark on us).

Today, write a post focusing on one — or more — of the people that have recently entered your life, and tell us how your narratives intersected. It can be your new partner, your newborn child, or the friendly barista whose real story you’d love to learn (or imagine), or any other person you’ve met for the first time in the past year.

Today’s twist: Turn your post into a character study.

I walked up to the front door and and rang the doorbell as I did I felt a little panic come over me. Was I in the right place? I wasn’t quite sure, but I had managed to track down Gina. The recipient of the the note I had found in the park. I was a Owner of a bakery called Kellys Cakes. I had been out for my morning jog. On a cool Spring morning before going into work. As I was jogging down the dirt path I was had came to a bench. Under the bench near a small patch of green grass was a piece of lined paper that had been folded in half.
I walked over picked up the paper and unfolded it. It was a hand witten note. The writting was a bit sloppy I could tell it had been written very quickly.

It read:

Gina,
I found your grandmothers wedding ring by the phone before I got on the plane the address to the hotel is 187 willow bird road. I know with all that’s going on you may forget the address so put this in your wallet so you know the right place

Love,
Jim
P.S. I can’t wait till the wedding in Paris.

Since I owned a bakery I had delivered wedding cakes to hotels in the area before. I knew I had seen that address but I wasn’t sure of the name of the hotel. When I had arrived at work I went into my office and shut the door behind me. I opened the desk drawer pulled out a file and opened it in the file was the names and addresses of the hotels I had delivered cakes to. I looked down the list for 187  Willow Bird Road.

The Manager Cassandra and I had become good friends. I picked up the phone and spoke with Cassandra. I asked her if there had been a guest by the name of Gina or Jim that had stayed on September 21st. I explained to her about the note. Cassandra said yes there had been and the ring was still in the safe.  Gina only lived in 2 towns over about an hour from the bakery. I told Cassandra that I really wanted to be the one to return the ring.

So there I was finally going to meet the women who had forgotten the ring at the hotel. the front door was red and had frosted window panes that had little flowers on them. The yard was very pretty a white picket fence that stood about 4 feet high with rose bushes that stood behind them. That were slight sticking through the front of the fence.

I could a blurred image approaching the door. It looked like a women by the delicate way she walked. She had brown shoulder length hair I wondered if the women was Gina. The door opened The women was about 5’3 and was wearing Blue jean shorts a teal V neck tank top with white lace trim at the bottom her eyes were a very soft brown and she had a beautiful golen tan. In a very soft sweet voice the women said “May I help you ”  and I responded “Yes my name is Kelly and I was given this address by Willow Bird Hotel” I explained who I was and how I had founds Jims note. she squealed with joy  “Yes my name is Gina”  and said in a very excited high pitched voice said “Come in, come in, I really thought I’d never see my ring again”.

I stepped into the house into a wide hallway the walls were a soft blue with White molding at the top of the walls. On the wall was a picture of Gina and a man I assumed to be Jim. Below the picture was a small White round table that had keys some envelopes and  a vase of flowers. as I walked beside Gina down the hallway she turned to me and said “Jim is in the kitchen eating lunch, ya wanna join us” I hadn’t eating anything since the coffee and breakfast wrap that morning so I said “Yes that would be great”.  As we walked into the kitchen I seen a the back of man sitting in a tan colored chair at a wooden table. The man had a tablet in his hand a looked to be reading something.  Without turning he asked in a very deep voice “Gina my love who was at the door” I looked at her and smiled. She said in and excited voice “Jim this is Kelly and she has returned the ring”. Jim brisky Stood up from his chair and turned to face us. He looked to be about 5’9 had short black hair  was wearing a Blue cargo shorts and a red t-shirt with Black letters that said Keep Calm The Walking Deads Only on a break and I knew from that point Gina Jim and I would become great friends.

Writing 101 Day 5 Assignment

You stumble upon a random letter on the path. You read it. It affects you deeply, and you wish it could be returned to the person to which it’s addressed. Write a story about this encounter.

Today’s twist: Approach this post in as few words as possible

I came across a letter on a path and it said

Gina,

I found your grandmothers wedding ring by the phone before I got on the plane

the address to the hotel is 187 willow bird road. I know with all that’s going on

you may forget the address so put this in your wallet so you know the right place

 

Love,

Jim

P.S.  I can’t wait till the wedding in Paris

I wished I could get this letter to Gina did she get her ring back? What all was going on?

Pure Raspberry Ketones All Natural Fat Burners

10703667_10203561140926689_4278135185364714116_n

pure Natural Raspberry Ketones

Hey all,

Recently I was given the chance to try Summit Nutrition’s Raspberry  Ketones  All natural Fat burner. I don’t have that much weight to lose only about 15 Lbs or so but none the less I want to lose it. I have had weight issues a lot of my life due to different Medications I took as a teenager along with really bad eating habits. When I was about 22 I was 205 Lbs and a size 20, my back hurt all the time I was out of breath a lot.  I was unhappy so around 23 I decided I needed to do something about it. I changed my diet and started being active a bit more,  got off of the medications I was on (with the help of a Dr.) Slowly but surly I started to lose weight. Then I got pregnant with my son at the beginning of my pregnancy, I was determined to not use being pregnant as an excuse to go overboard with eating. I stuck to it and only gained the recommended 25 lbs  and gave birth to a healthy baby boy. After he was born I was really lucky. I lost the weight within the first 3 months and managed to keep it off. About 2 years later I had found out I was pregnant with our daughter. Everything went really well with it, except I was having the reverse problem and I was having some issues putting on weight I only gained 17 lbs but our daughter was perfectly healthy. Now 4 years later I am 157 and a bit nervous because I weigh more then I have for about 3 years.

So when this opportunity came along to try the Raspberry Ketones I was willing to give it a shot especially since its all natural . I really haven’t been taking it long enough to know weather it really helps you to lose weight (I will have to write an update post in a few months) but I can say it does suppress the appetite a bit. Now there is no magic quick fix pill that will just make you lose weight. it takes a healthy eating lifestyle and activity and I use the word lifestyle because you really do have to make it a forever type change not just be on a diet, because you can’t always be buying the TV dinner meals from those weight loss groups or just be eating Grapefruit all the time, I am not bashing anyone who is doing those plans, I am just saying you need to adopt forever meal habits that are good for you. When you do make the change to healthier foods don’t do it to fast because if you go and throw everything that is bad for you out in one day, you might get a craving and you fight it then when you finally get that bag of chips or that box of cookies,  you may find yourself gorging and eating the whole thing. So just start slow and eat bowl of salad a day and yogurt for snack  There are so many ways to make great salads. I am not a professional dietitian nor am I a Dr. so always talk to your Dr. before make drastic changes ya never know they may have some peer type support groups they can suggest for you to go to.
