Traveling to Wicked Awesome Boston

In life one of the most enjoyable and awesome thing is traveling, exploring and seeing parts of the world. I am especially excited to be traveling to the Super Wicked Awesome Boston, Massachusetts again for the second time Since August 2013 in less than a year. When I was landing to Boston in August 2013, I remember this warm, welcoming feeling as I was overlooking the beauty of it all, and I knew right away I would love it. It is not really the city, but the people there are so warm, friendly, strong, committed to each other, and particularly my great friends there, whom I call my family. I am excited to be reuniting with them in less than a week. They mean the world to me, and just being there with them, spending quality time together, creating everlasting memories is all I want. “Boston isn’t a city, its a family” of which someone had quoted a while back.

Last time I flew down, and this time we decided to take a road trip down which will take about 8 and a half hours. I am so used to road trips, and it will be nice to explore the scenery. I know on my Facebook I tend to talk about Boston a lot, and post up photos of the city, the logos of the teams and all that, but I just cannot help myself. To fully explore Boston and suburbs, you would need at least 2 weeks with the attractions, going to Cape Cod, New England, Rockport. Rockport has wicked awesome lobster at the Lobster Pool Restaurant by the water. The reason why I say Wicked Awesome is that New England, Bostonians say those words, and add super so in their accent, they say “Supah Wicked Awesome”. In my previous blog, I taught people how to do the Boston Accent. You will see what I am talking about.

This has happened many times where now people would ask me about Boston, what there is to do and see, where the hot spots are, attractions, museums, and the iconic Harvard University which I had the pleasure of seeing. What a huge school. I don’t know how the students are able to find their classrooms in such a huge campus. I’d go crazy, but I love Harvard Square. I even got to touch John Harvard’s shoe on his statue. I also got to eat and drink beer at the Cheers Bar which is also known as the iconic TV show which aired in the 80′s. The real one closed down, but the replica is almost exactly alike to the show, but you see the juke box, and all sorts of things back from the show, and they put on the theme song of the show in one part. It is pretty wicked awesome. I also visited the Boston Harbor which is right by cheers, also Quincy Market where I bought some Boston Stuff to take home with me. It was very nice. Visit the Boston Common as well. There is also a Duck tour where there is a vehicle that goes on water and on the road and that is the ultimate Boston experience.

I can’t wait to share stories when I come back. Heres to the Supah Wicked Awesome Boston! CHEAHS!(Cheers)

Thanks For All the Fun & Laughs Jay Leno – I Will Miss You

Jay Leno what can I say? last night during the final taping and all this week, I am sure the emotions were running high at the Final Show of The Tonight Show. 22 years have come and gone with celebrities, politicians, awesome surprises, what a beautiful last show. As I hold back my tears, I can truly say that Jay Leno you made my mother and I laugh so hard with your awesome monologues, the headlines, Jaywalking, 99cent dollar store items, Jays funny  pumpcasting, coulda woulda shoulda, the most wonderful time of the year, and everything else in between. You began your show with Billy Crystal, and ending with Billy Crystal on your show along with the touching music of Garth Brooks. With all the tributes from the stars that came on the show tonight like Carol Burnett, Kim Kardashian, Oprah, Matt Damon, Bill Maher, etc… along with your final touching, heartfelt, beautiful speech really did it for me. I cried up a storm, I had a box of tissues handy. I definitely needed it. Jay the thing I liked the most, was that you really love your fans, and you made sure that your show was entertaining as possible and made everybody laugh, and have fun which did for me.

I stood up mainly because of your show, your headlines and everything else with Kevin Eubanks, Rickey Minor and the bands. As Mondays approached, I could not wait to watch your funny headlines among other things. Jay Leno I will miss you immensely and very much. Enjoy your time off and always know that I will always remember your show and I will always support, admire, love and respect you even when your off the air. Thanks for everything. I wish that somehow I could have been on your show and you would interview me. It was my dream to get on your show, it was a dream of mine to get to go see a live taping of your show as well, but that did not pan out and work out the way I wanted to.

Having talk shows, and the whole operations of it is extremely difficult, with getting stars on the show, the scheduling, the daily monologues, the designers, administrative work, getting the rights, set designers, getting celebrities on the show, politicians, as well as the studio use. It take a lot of time, energy, money and everything to make a show successful and 22 years is a long time for a show and Jay Leno was one of my favorites. I cannot believe it is the end of an era, Thanks for all the fun and laughs Jay Leno. I will miss you.

Now that Jay has passed the torch onto Jimmy Fallon, I would like to give a warm welcome to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon another person I truly adore, love and respect. Jimmy Fallon makes me laugh so hard as much as Jay Leno did. Best wishes to Jimmy and I look forward to his Tonight show. God bless you Jimmy Fallon on your journey and Jay, I would love to see your cars one day and meet you of course if I get lucky and come to Los Angeles for a visit. If I get an invite that is. lol. Thanks Jay and welcome Jimmy!

Happy 10th Birthday Facebook! Taking Social Media To A New Level

It was 8 years ago that I joined this social media website to stay in touch with family, friends, people in relative to me and people I have met through my travels and beyond. Little did I know, that the circle would get bigger. I met some incredible, beautiful, lovely people from this social media website that I began to meet some of them in person a few years later, which made the world a smaller place. I have yet to meet a few people who I so badly want to meet that I met from other friends on Facebook by merely commenting on a picture or status message and we automatically grew fond of each other, so we added each other and our friendships have blossomed since then.We have become like a family and its an amazing feeling to know that you can take time away from life’s busy schedule and converse and keep updated with your Facebook Family online.

Facebook unites many people around the world. Its incredible on how things fall into place, and see how many people are interested in the same things you are by just joining groups, pages and fan pages of a famous personality, idol, or other miscellaneous things.

Facebook definitely makes the world smaller and in seconds a lot of photos, videos, links, news, sending wishes for birthdays, baby, wedding, engagement, graduation, university announcements, invitations to events and parties, status messages, comments, messages, likes, groups, pages, businesses, food, restaurants, menus, recipes, radio stations, entertainment, movies and other things gets transmitted throughout the world. Sometimes all you need is Facebook to get all your news and information with the help of Links of course. I love Facebook because it’s a website that I am so grateful for and for Mark Zuckerberg who created this so that our communication becomes easier with the world and encountering many people on all walks of life.

Thank you Facebook for Connecting me to the world and to people I would never have met if it wasn’t for you. I am so blessed to have you all on my list and I love you all very much! Mind you, I am very careful with my selections on who I choose to add-on my friends list. I have been around on the Internet since 1997 and I am very well-educated when it comes to social media moguls and everything else.

If anybody has anything bad to say about Facebook, it’s because of the way you use it, Some use it carelessly, some use it to do bad things, some use it to do stupid things. As long as you use Facebook wisely and know what you are doing, and what you are sharing, posting and who you have on your Facebook account, that is good, but do not post every single aspect of your life as it can be misinterpreted. So the bottom line is, if you do not want your personal business on a social media site, do not post it at all because somebody can see it within the second you post it. Some things have to remain private and don’t use Facebook to bully others, hurt or offend other people, Photoshopping in a bad way and making insensitive posts. Post wisely, because each thing you post does not go away, even after deleted. Especially on a Social Media website, that can be accessed by billions of people around the world. So be careful, exercise caution and use it to inspire, to be kind, to do great things with it like communicating, and enjoying it.

Do you use Facebook in a great way? Do you have an account? If so, what are your thoughts about the social media website? What do you like or not like about it? I would love to hear your opinions on it. How can you spread the awareness to use Facebook in a good manner and not use it in the wrong way?

Most about Facebook is good, incredible, and awesome and I believe that Facebook has changed the interface of communications forever. I wish FB Continued success throughout the years. Heres to strengthening communication of people from a distance, and cheers to everlasting friendships through Facebook across the many miles around the world. Happy Birthday Facebook! Heres to another 10 years and beyond!

Never Give Up On Your Passion – Keep Reaching For The Stars

In My life, I have been so passionate about many things, and one of them is to write. I have been doing that for 11+ years now, and I am not stopping on what I am passionate about. Not only does writing interest me and what has been instilled in my life for more than a decade now, but I know I have so many other great skills and talents I want to utilize in this limited life. I want to make a difference in this world, I want to shine, I want to get to where I have always dreamed of. In the last little while, I have been walking like I am on the red carpet of an award show, and holding something that resembles an award and pretending that I am accepting that award and thanking everyone, and being so grateful. Well, I do not want to pretend anymore.

I want to make it a reality, and I want to one day feel that feeling of so many people being proud of me, and my accomplishments. No dream is unrealistic, and no dream is too big and out of reach. When you are passionate about something and feel so incredible, amazing, and wonderful about, you got to try your best, you got to reach for the stars and I know that it will not be an easy task to do so, but eventually you will get there. I know I cannot just sit behind a computer screen and write and write. I must get out there to shine and head out to where I can make my dreams a reality. God has a plan for you. Maybe not now, but in the near future or someday. I am just so happy that I have discovered my God given skills and talents, that someday I will represent All Armenians in the community and basically the community of the world of all nationalities, all walks of life and do my best in this life.

I know I must do this on my own, and nobody will walk in my journey to get there and reach for the stars as I must stand on my own two feet, I can’t just keep talking and writing about it like I am now,  but I do believe that the more people that get my name out there, the more people that know of me and about me and my purpose, the more better it will be. Somebody in the entertainment industry, an idol of many people, a famous personality will see my blog. I want to clarify, that I am not just doing this to get myself famous for the sake of getting famous and getting the publicity I want, but its to make a difference, its to do something fulfilling to reach to many people as I am a people lover, and I am a people person, even in my local community, and surroundings.

I just love to write, I love to get my feelings, my words and myself out there for the world to see me and who I am. I know I have a lot to give out to the world, and I know I can do this. I will not let negative, jealous and those who do not believe in me that I can’t do it, that I can’t get there, because I can, and I will.

God bless you all and Thank you to those who believe in me. Your support means so much more. I love you all!

Talin’s Journey to Hollywood – My Vow To Fans

In the past 11 and a half years, I have taken this journey into writing for my Armenian community newsletters, writing scripts for my drama class back in high school, getting great marks in English class, always writing speeches for my Armenian community, where I had the pleasure of having the opportunity to conduct public speeches, where I got so excited to do, and I had standing ovations after my speeches and soon after I would have many people greet me throughout the event, where people would compliment me on a job well done. After a few years writing for my Armenian Community, I resorted to online posting since Facebook was established, and soon after I began the wonderful world of Blogging and engaging into social media a lot more, where I can put my thoughts, feelings, and the way I see things into light.

Having said all of that, Writing has been a passion of mine for so long now and I plan to utilize my skills, talent and my enthusiasm to fulfill my dreams of writing for big productions in Hollywood, California in Los Angeles, where I can grow and adapt and make my writing journey one that will mean so much to me. I know in Hollywood there is a lot of competition, there are thousands of people who want to be in that position where they want to make a name out of themselves in the public eye and for everyone to know that person. I know you are probably wondering what I can bring to the entertainment industry? That is a simple question to answer, simply by saying that, I know I can bring fresh new ideas to the productions, and big television and movie corporations and especially making the fans my #1 priority, as that should matter in the end as that is the main reason why the entertainment industry survives today, as many Actors, Actresses, Directors and Producers have said at award shows and interviews on television.

In the past month and a half, I have encountered and met many new friends online from many places in the world and sharing with them my views, their feelings, emotions and opinions on the whole Michael Muhney and Billy Miller Case of being Let go from The Young And The Restless Soap Opera on Television, and so much more that caused a major blowout with many fans being disappointed with the outcome, and thousands and thousands of fans took it to social media websites, magazines, newspapers, and other news outlets to share their emotions, and those fans are serious about not watching the show after January 30th, 2014 when it will be the last time we see Michael Muhney or Billy Miller and it is sad to see them go with the poor writing and story-lines that have been airing lately and fans are working so hard to get the actors that we love on the show back and bring great quality writers who can render and work their great craft, where fans can finally be happy, satisfied with the outcome and mainly make us smile and wait impatiently to come home from work or school to tune into our favorite show, to PVR pre-record the show, so that the fans can watch it. If things are not dealt with in a proper fashion, Fans maybe lost for good, and they can tune into other soap operas and they can do something else with their time.

Also, with that being said, I want to get to Los Angeles, I want to be able to look at that Hollywood sign on the hills everyday, and say I made it, I want to wake up everyday with those big tall palm trees of California and say, I made it, and I want to get that satisfaction, that pleasure into know that I made fans smile, that I made them feel important because they are important to me, and I promise and make that vow to my fans, that whatever I do, and will do, it is for the great benefit of you and I will one day get on the Movie Critics Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards, The Oscars, The Academy Awards, Peoples Choice Awards, Emmy Awards, Prime-time and Daytime, and when and if I win those awards, I will dedicate it to the fans firstly, and I will say, without Fans, our careers will not be where it is, and it would never exist. Thank you fans. It is all about making priorities, It is all about putting people first. I want to know that what I have or will do will blossom the entertainment industry and how incredible life can be for those who depend, who dedicate their lives to our craft and what we do.

If I can one day get this chance, if I can one day get to where I want to be, I will work so hard, accept and take on many challenges, and I will be prepared for whatever comes my way. I know it is easy to say it now, and it is easy to talk, but where I stand, there will be not that much talking, and there will be action taken with every vow I take for my fans, and for every single person whom I will work with or work for and create a family in the entertainment world. I am so excited and ready for this phase of my life. I cannot do it without you all and without your help to send me there. Thank you to those who believe in me and thank you so much for the sweet and lovely comments. I appreciate that so much. This is for you!

Why Do Good Soft Hearted People Always Get Knocked Down?

Recently, in life there have been some unpleasant things going on in general that I am not liking whatsoever. For example, when you are so great with what you do, and who you are as a person in your job like, and when so many people who are fans and supporters of that actor/actress on a TV show or Soap Opera, people high up always tend to ruin a good thing and they do not even realize that many fans and supporters hearts will be broken from a good hearted and soft hearted person getting let go from the excellent work that they do. It really is terrible knowing that you are just a number and can be replaced like your nothing when your time is up or not. They need to realize that, messing with fans emotions and feelings and taking fans for a ride is not a laughing and joking matter. It is quite serious and that is losing and betraying the trust of all of us who are/were supporters. These people controlling and making decisions seem like they do not even care. Its very sad and disgusting.

Its like ordinary people in daily general life. In the world people take advantage of you, and do not even care about you and your feelings and the outcome of it all, because they know that they can keep asking you, and counting on you to do things and you never say no and they know that they can get anything from that person, they know they can run and walk all over you because they know how to get things done, and they do not care who gets hurt from it all.

Its something that I cannot make sense of at all and I just need to ask why Good and Soft-Hearted people are often the ones who get knocked down, get mistreated and shafted when not needed anymore? It is so unfair, life is so unfair, especially to the good people, Easily being replaced or looking for another person to do the same thing to. I just cannot understand it at all, and I am trying to look for answers, that I cannot even look for.

In this life, sometimes being a soft-hearted, good hearted, person does not work in some cases. Learning to speak up,  being tough, putting your foot down, standing up for yourself and your rights and saying no once in a while does not  hurt, it just puts others to the ultimate test to see if they are real and good friends to you and to see if those people are walking all over you. Sometimes there are people who take others for a ride all if not most of the time and the Soft and Good hearted person does not see it and will do anything and everything for other people, but when it comes to that individual, and when you ask the same from others its always a struggle to get things in return. I know some do things all the time from people without asking anything in return, but its nice to be acknowledged once in a while and having others do nice things for you.

Some realize that what they are doing is wrong, and they still do it because they do not even have an ounce of decency in them and they do not care who they hurt in the process, unfortunately they always run to the good and soft people because they know that they can play with that persons heart, and emotions. It is sickening. I am just so frustrated because I have been there, I have been through so much with always saying yes, I have been naive, I have been blinded by being used, with people always putting me to the side when not needed anymore, and a lot of fake people are around and this society has become that. Fake people hurt others like crazy, and It puts a scar in your life, because no matter what you do, its like Damn if you do, Damn if you don’t. Now, from your perspective, what do you think of this? What do you do when this issue arises?

In the meantime, Do not worry, keep up being great, soft-hearted people in this world, they are great traits, keep it up, As for those fake people, and those who take others for a ride, someday, I hope that they will realize and sit down and think long and hard and say what I am doing is wrong, and I should stop it, apologize to people and make better choices in society with socializing with others. It will make the world a better, friendlier and nicer place. I hope that I will see that day.

Have you learned to be more tough in this life? How have you handled it? Would like to hear from you.

My Hollywood Dream – My Big Break – My Journey to LA

In life we all dream of something we want to do, want to be, and where we want our life to be, who we want to meet, what we wish for, and not letting others rain on your parade and not letting others put you down on what you feel and what you dream of and what you want to work so hard for, and watching the Golden Globe Awards last night, made me realize that it is possible to reach that point and its my dream to one day wear a great dress, to have my name announced to get up on stage to receive this prestigious and incredible award for great achievement.

When I visited Hollywood and Los Angeles area in October, 2012, My emotions were running high and did a lot of thinking and reflection atop of The Griffith Observatory, and said I will get there someday and I too will be on top of that Hollywood Hills looking down at Los Angeles where the stars are, and I too will get my big break.

There is no such thing as an unrealistic dream. Everyone has the right and is entitled to dream whatever they want to dream, everyone has a purpose in life. I know sometimes some dreams take a while for it to come true, some dreams do come true and some do not, but do not lose hope in your dreams, do not lose faith in whatever you want to do, see, and discover. The sky is the limit.

I am working so hard with my writing, writing everyday, spending countless hours on social media, social networking, tweeting, having my Facebook Fan page, enrolling myself to entertainment outlets in Hollywood and other places like movies, soap operas, mini series, Television series, but with the amount of e-mail these people receive have been staggering and sometimes I do not even know if they read everything which gets me a little discouraged, but I am not giving up in getting myself out there to get noticed and hopefully to fulfill my dreams, working my butt off to make my dreams a reality.

I know you may think that I am trying to seek attention, but I am not.  I know I can do this, I will not let negative people put my dreams down, I will not let jealous people get in the way of my happiness and my hopes and dreams as nobody should do that to anybody, but to encourage them and give them that push and positivity in life..

I cannot do this without you my family, friends and fans.  I cannot do this without those connected somehow to the Entertainment industry, and to get my name out to Hollywood would mean so much to me. You have no idea how important this is to me. I have found my calling and I plan to utilize my energy and my enthusiasm to make it in this world and make each and everyone of you my family, friends, fans proud.

My #1 priority will be the people (my fans) and those who will engage into my career which I hope will take off and I will do great things and I will make the entertainment industry shine even more. I love you all, and thank you to my supporters. This ones for you!

Without Fans, The Entertainment Industry Is Nothing

In life, most of us if not all of us in this world enjoy the entertainment industry, Some of us like all aspects of entertainment, and some enjoy only one kind, and many Television, Music, Movie, Soap Operas, Radio shows, Talk Shows, and other Entertainment Personalities get discovered, and some by luck, and some by just walking in to audition for a part, and some just get lucky naturally, but they are extremely lucky to have fans like us to support the entertainment industry. It is the fans who spend so much money to go see movies, to go to concerts to watch our favorite singers, to watch television shows, to go to events where our favorite celebrities will be there, Fans spend money to fly or drive for countless hours to go see their admired celebs in the entertainment industry. Some fans buy merchandise, posters and other things to decorate their personal space with them all. This industry plays a huge role in our life, and the pleasures we receive from it all.

Now, the bottom line is that how would these celebrities, big Television, movie, Corporations, Broadcasting companies and people get all this money to spend like it is nothing to  live with luxurious homes, mansions, villas, cars, boats, yachts, private planes, who dine in classy restaurants, who shop for expensive fashion, who live the life, that some if not all of us dream of having without the support of Fans? They need to be thankful to us all the time, and getting to meet our favorite actors and actresses and other famous people should not be complicated at all. Signing autographs, taking pictures with fans, and including them as much as possible is so important. Some do not realize how important it is. I some people are crazy for their Entertainment personalities, and I know security can be tightened, but Hypothetically speaking if I were to be a famous entertainment celebrity, Fans will be my #1 priority and they will be above anything else, because without them the Entertainment industry will be nothing.

These award shows where celebrities always thank the fans, which is very sweet and thoughtful of them to mention that and It is very important to always acknowledge fans. Fans dedicate most of their lives to entertainment, some create websites for their favorite personalities, some create message boards, they take themselves to social media and create fan pages for people to join in and share with each other how fans feel, and have fun together and making friends with other fans.

These broadcasting corporations, and television companies think it’s a good thing to change a TV personality from a show that we have gotten used to, but it should not happen, Unless the TV personality is not able to perform due to health reasons, very personal family reasons, that is okay, but do not change somebody for the sake or changing them. It is not good for fans, it is not good for the show. Ratings will go down, and fluctuate up and down, and sometimes it can put permanent damage to the show, that is why a lot of shows do not last, and some get cancelled, because there is not quality content in some. Nowadays Television rarely has great quality shows, and most of which get cancelled before the end of the Television series season. I hope these big TV and Movie companies make good decisions and hire great people to do the work and for us to enjoy

The bottom line is to never mess with fans feelings, emotions and their dedication to an aspect of any entertainment genre. It is wrong, and it is important to always put fans first, besides were the ones putting bread and butter on tables, and were the reason why these entertainment personnel live such luxurious lifestyles. So, they need to think about us and what we want out of it all and ask us if it is okay. What do you think about this? I would love to hear what you have to say. Thanks, and look forward to hearing some opinions. Best wishes.

First Step Of Being Happy With Yourself, Is To Believe In Yourself

In Life there are several things we can do to better our lives, and the first step to being happy with yourself is to believe in yourself. Sometimes we all have those days where we are not good enough, or we sell ourselves short because something didn’t work out the way as planned, and we all go through those phases in our lives where we feel the need to put ourselves down and our confidence down because of what the next person has said to you or how the person has said it and were often feel inferior because of it, but in life there are going to be 2 types of people, people who will always criticize you and who will appreciate you and who will be someone who supports you, but never lose yourself over what other people say. It is you in the end who needs to believe in yourself and when you believe in yourself, that is all you need because in order to be happy with yourself and how you are, believing in yourself and your abilities is something a lot more special and great. We must always have faith in everything. I know sometimes we run out of faith, we run out of believing ourselves because something happened, but use whatever discouragement you had into encouragement and encourage yourself, and have self-confidence, that when the going gets tough, keep going and you will find yourself with the path to believing in yourself no matter what happens.

This world has become a tough battle to live in and we have so many personality traits, that we can tolerate and we cannot tolerate, but life is very beautiful and when you look past all the negativity this world has brought to you and when you look past on unfortunate situations, always know that you can be happy again, you can reach for the stars, but you cannot do that until you move forward with life and be happy individuals, live life to the fullest and get going onto bigger better things in life. Everything happens for a reason, everything in life has its purpose. We all in this world have our own paths to walk, we all have our own voyage and journey of how each and everyone of our life stories has an author and you are your own author of life. You need to make your life story and spread it around. Spread around believing in yourself, and then everyone else will follow. Do yourself a favour and spread around belief and make life beautiful for you and for others. Nothing is as special as that. I am sure all of us are criticized for everything no matter what we do. whether its good or bad, but of course we will be judged accordingly no matter what and some will talk when they have no idea of your situation. There are so many things to put into factor when you deal with people all the time, and when you have to make these vital decisions in life. Always know that I believe in you and you matter to the world, no matter how you come into this world. All the best and never stop your path to happy thoughts and beliefs.

Facebook Made The World Smaller – So Thankful

Hi everyone, In the past few days I have been thinking a lot about this subject on how Facebook changed my life and in great and positive ways which I will never forget in my life. In the last 4-5 years that I have been actively on Facebook, I started by actively joining groups and pages of which my circle of friends grew bigger especially in the Armenian Community when I joined RADIO AGA which is now Armenian Voice. AGA Stands for Armenian Greek Arabic, and including other pages but with great people of course. I could automatically feel how nice and great those people are by just the way they write, respond and the way they portray themselves on Facebook. I have that sense to know who is real and who is fake.

In the last 3-4 years I have met many of my Facebook friends in many places, events, and Just one on one as well. Its been a great journey with them and its so special to me when we get together. Minutes, seconds and hours count when you are with people you meet from so many places and when you come together its something so incredible. I am ever so grateful for those times spent, although they are short, but they leave an everlasting great impression. It felt great, their voice, their touch, their facial expressions, it is almost identical to what and how they are online, but nothing compares to real togetherness offline and in person. That is how I felt every time. This past weekend I met many people from Facebook for the first time and a few of them I met before in the last few years and it feels incredible. Probably one of the best feelings ever. Facebook has become a special social network for me. I connected with great people whom I can relate to, whom I can easily converse with, whom I can share who I am and not be afraid of anything.

When you make arrangements to meet with Facebook Friends with planning that moment, the anticipation, and being so impatient to look forward to that moment where you first lock eyes, and see each other and know how you both look and that moment is so amazing that you never want to let go of that moment and treasure, cherish and keep it in your heart forever. There have been many times this has happened to me when I met someone from Facebook for the first time. I can’t even put it into words on how precious those moments were for me. I am such a happy person because I love being social, I accept people into my life, but good people though. I automatically feel it. It’s that first gut instinct that puts a great perspective. Another thing is that I do not just add anybody to my Facebook account. I must have been talking to someone for a while to add them.

I am rich beyond compare because I have great and beautiful people in my life. Material things do not do justice to me and my life.

I really dislike the part where you know you have to part again, the time when you are in mixed emotions that make you cry which happens to me, but I know I will meet them and see them again, and until then we can communicate on Facebook all over again. I am ever so grateful and thankful to my Facebook friends whom now I call my brothers and sisters and who are a big part of my family and consider them as part of it. There is just so much to say. Thank you for brightening up my world, thank you for giving me hope when I thought there was none for me, thank you all for giving me that boost, for keeping a smile on my face, for everything. I dedicate a large portion of my life to them. When I was bullied heavily back in the day in school and everything those are the thing of the past, and my Friends now have made me forget those times and those times will never return again. I know it. I am excited for life, happy, and feeling pretty darn well amazing. Blessings to my Friends Brothers/Sisters. I salute, cheers to you all.

Reuniting With A Very Special Person in My Life

Hello all, I am filled with excitement tonight as in a couple of hours, I will be reuniting with a great, close, special friend whom I call my sister for so many years now is coming to see me and I am so overwhelmed with happiness as she is getting near to my town to see me. It is the greatest feeling ever. I have not seen her since February 26, 2012 when I last visited Montreal and I am just so overly excited to see her again. I miss her so much and this is going to be a great reunion and we have so much catching up to do, and creating more memories. Those times we used to see each other 2-3 weeks at a time and I remember how much we used to see each other back in the day, but again it will feel great to be together instead of always messaging each other on Facebook, and text messages. Time to finally be physically together which is so much more awesome.

I am jumping for joy. When she told me she is coming this past week, I got so happy, emotional, and joyful at the same time and it was a feeling I will never forget. We may not be sisters in blood, but were sisters at heart, mind and soul, and I consider her part of my family. She is one of the most important people in my life and she has a big place in my heart, my world, my life and everything in my being. I have been awake all night and will pick her up in an hour and 40 minutes from now. I am super duper hyped up about this and so much time we have to make up for all the lost ones in from February, 2012, and up until today. Well, I must go, but time to get ready and time to enjoy. I feel like I am going to cry with happiness when I see her, so I gotta prepare myself :).

First Step Of Being Happy With Yourself, Is To Believe In Yourself

In Life there are several things we can do to better our lives, and the first step to being happy with yourself is to believe in yourself. Sometimes we all have those days where we are not good enough, or we sell ourselves short because something didn’t work out the way as planned, and we all go through those phases in our lives where we feel the need to put ourselves down and our confidence down because of what the next person has said to you or how the person has said it and were often feel inferior because of it, but in life there are going to be 2 types of people, people who will always criticize you and who will appreciate you and who will be someone who supports you, but never lose yourself over what other people say. It is you in the end who needs to believe in yourself and when you believe in yourself, that is all you need because in order to be happy with yourself and how you are, believing in yourself and your abilities is something a lot more special and great. We must always have faith in everything. I know sometimes we run out of faith, we run out of believing ourselves because something happened, but use whatever discouragement you had into encouragement and encourage yourself, and have self-confidence, that when the going gets tough, keep going and you will find yourself with the path to believing in yourself no matter what happens.

This world has become a tough battle to live in and we have so many personality traits, that we can tolerate and we cannot tolerate, but life is very beautiful and when you look past all the negativity this world has brought to you and when you look past on unfortunate situations, always know that you can be happy again, you can reach for the stars, but you cannot do that until you move forward with life and be happy individuals, live life to the fullest and get going onto bigger better things in life. Everything happens for a reason, everything in life has its purpose. We all in this world have our own paths to walk, we all have our own voyage and journey of how each and everyone of our life stories has an author and you are your own author of life. You need to make your life story and spread it around. Spread around believing in yourself, and then everyone else will follow. Do yourself a favour and spread around belief and make life beautiful for you and for others. Nothing is as special as that. I am sure all of us are criticized for everything no matter what we do. whether its good or bad, but of course we will be judged accordingly no matter what and some will talk when they have no idea of your situation. There are so many things to put into factor when you deal with people all the time, and when you have to make these vital decisions in life. Always know that I believe in you and you matter to the world, no matter how you come into this world. All the best and never stop your path to happy thoughts and beliefs.

A Clean House Is A Happy Talin – I Love Cooking & Cleaning

For several years now since I was a little kid, I have always had this eye for organization, wanting to learn new things, cooking, and how to clean efficiently and among everything else. I learned how to cook since I was 8 years old, and I started to clean and tidy up when I was 4 years old. My mom and dad always taught me the importance of cleanliness, organization and neatness so that when I want to look for something it will be easy to find when things are organized and neat. Now that I am almost 28 years old 7 days from now, All those skills and things I experienced is something that my mom tells me that you clean better than I do now, and your always finding new things to do in the house, how to organize, and everything better than I do. I said I only learned from the best and when I have my own home one day, you will be happy with what I am going to do with it. My mom has looked after me all these years for the past so many years now I keep telling my mom to relax and put her feet up, I will do the cooking and stuff. I love to cook a lot. It takes a lot of my stress out and I enjoy doing these things, and looking after the house. I find complete joy when I do. My parents really appreciate all that I do and to make sure the house is in tip top shape.

Every person we have who come over, they say this place is so spotless and so clean. Everything is well maintained. I said thank you. To me it is important to keep my place clean and tidy and up to date. I like to hear compliments and leave a great impression on family and guests who come over and I don’t like to hear that this persons place is so filthy and they don’t know how to clean a house. I don’t like hearing those things, so I like to maintain my house every 2 or 3 days, but the kitchen area I always maintain everyday, clean out the fridge, and never leave dishes in the sink and I always wash them, dry them and put them away, wash down the counter tops and kitchen table with vinegar and water, and clean my floors with vinegar and water. I don’t use other chemicals for my home. The house does smell like a salad for a couple of hours, but it shines and cleans it right down. Oh happy joy joy. I get so excited when it comes to cleaning. I know you must say this woman is crazy, but it fills my day with joyfulness.

I have so much to do everyday. There aren’t enough hours in the day. I love doing laundry too and the smell of the laundry detergent is so great. I love the smell of it, and folding my laundry after is something I enjoy too. When I put laundry away, I co-ordinate by colour too so as I know what I have and don’t have. I designate a day in the week to do Laundry, to vacuum, to mop the floors, but I usually do all the floor work in one day. I have a central vac in the house so I never sweep my floors anymore. I only vacuum and then I mop after. Its so much easier without dust and stuff going all around with the broom. You just vacuum and its done in less time.

Do you like to clean, cook and do you find joy in doing housework? What does a clean house mean to you?

Would love to hear from you.

Spring Is Almost Here! Excited For That. Are You?

After the many months of winter, this is the moment I always wait for, I really like this time of year when it becomes Mid March, I really enjoy it when our weather gets warmer, and when the winter is behind us in a way and almost time when the trees start growing its leaves again, when the grass gets greener, the roads are washing away from the salt and snow, when everywhere gets thawed out, mild temperatures start and increase by day, when the flowers start to grow again, colour and life comes back after the cold, dark, wintry days, the tulip and other spring  flowers blooming, the spring air and smell of mud, dandelions start to grow, the smell of top soil, garden centers open, outdoor furniture, barbecues, outdoor equipment starts coming back into the stores, spring colours, clothing and bright vibrant colours come back on our store shelves,  the sunlight shines, birds start chirping, animals come out of hibernation, the geese fly back north. I just love this time of year when life comes back. I am so tired of winter, snow and having to bundle up every time I go out. I’d love to go somewhere for 5-6 months of the year and not see snow and be part of the cold freezing weather and not wear layers outside.

I also like spring because it gives me a time to wash the cars and I love washing my car, washing the car mats, detailing and getting rid of the winters salt and sand they put on the streets, and taking care of it. I also like to wash out my driveway and clean up my garage, having to put the shovels away, and just enjoying the whole process of getting rid of winter. It is my favourite.  I am a person who loves vibrant colours, who loves warmer weather, the beautiful sun shining, and among when the days get longer. I really didn’t enjoy when the days get shorter and it would be dark before 5pm. I really enjoy it when time and daylight time increases. In June and July it is still sunlight after  8:30 and you would still see a bit of light after 9pm too. those are the days I love, plus you don’t feel that the night is dragging on so long and plus it gets brighter earlier in the morning and its so refreshing and you start your day earlier and you appreciate the daylight and days. I also like getting rid of the boots and jackets I wear and pack them up for 5-6 months of the year.

I really enjoy sitting on the patio, I like driving with my windows down, listening to vibrant music, going camping, and I enjoy leisure time away too.

What season do you like? Do you also enjoy spring and summer months? What do you mostly enjoy when the weather starts getting warmer? What activities do you like doing outdoors? Would love to hear form you. Happy Spring!
