Im a published author!

I started writing my book in February was finished with my book in Arpil. I had no means to get a editor for free which was good. I had online grammar tools to help me as mich as possible.

Had it not been for my job counclers coworker for pushing me into writing my story. This book would not been published. Since May when I offically done I had left it alone. I also left poetry alone to do some office essential classes at Saint Paul College.

I was busy during the summer and towards the end of summerr. The book was always on my mind. I had it set up on Createspace which was introduced to me by another facebooker. I started to write on my blog and all poetry towards September.

I am planning my next chapbook a small 5 to 6 poetry book. I want to say thanks you to everyone who had helped me and stood by me. My paper bag version of the book its up in Amazon and its ready. I moved the kindle version preorder up to November 5th. I will link the book down below.

Book Announcement.

So after a week of more let downs. I’ve finished my book. Its on Amazon.com and in only Kendle print for now. The paper bag will be uploaded this week and ready for preorder shortly after.

I wanna thank My friends a my mother for sticking with me during this time. And supporting me when I had every chance to quit.

I’ve been through my normal ups and downs with hardly little to no drama from other people this year. Only drama I’ve dealt with is with my own mentality.

First ASL Video

First ASL video in so long that it felt good when I completed it. Walk on Water by Thirty Seconds to Mars has gotten me through some ruff times during the past few weeks. Here are the lyrics to Walk on Water:

(Do you believe?) Walk on water

Can you even see what you’re fighting for?
Bloodlust and a holy war
Listen up, hear the patriots shout:
“Times are changing”
In the end, the choice was clear
Take a shot in the face of fear
Fist up in the fiery light
Times are changing

Do you believe that you can walk on water?
Do you believe that you can win this fight tonight?
(Do you believe?)
Look at the sky, see a dying star
White lies, it’s a man on fire
Making love with the devil hurts
Times are changing
A thin line, the whole truth
The far right, the left view
Breaking all those promises made
Times are changing

Do you believe that you can walk on water?
D you believe that you can win this fight tonight?
Do you believe that you can walk on water?
Do you believe that you can win this fight tonight?

Do you believe? Walk on water
Do you believe? Walk on water
Do you believe? Walk on water
Do you believe? Walk on water

Do you believe? Walk on water
Do you believe? Walk on water
Do you believe? Walk on water
Do you believe? Walk on water

Do you believe that you can walk on water?
Do you believe that you can win this fight tonight?
(Do you believe? Walk on water)
Do you believe that you can walk on water?
(Do you believe? Walk on water)
Do you believe that you can win this fight tonight?

Do you believe? Walk on water
Do you believe? Walk on water

Emotional week.

Emotional week.

So going off from last Monday I was let go from my job at a local company in St. Paul MN. So I’m normally not a cryer but i cried that night Tuesday night. Speaking of which my Son is doing a hellva lot better than last week.

Never ever thought I would be crying this much during this week of let downs and disappointments. I learned a lot about myself this week emotionally and I know where I need to go from there.

Even though I’ve forgiven a lot of people the one person I need to forgive is my self. With all the bullshit and breaking down because of it. Blaming myself is not the way I need to do it.

So untill next time have a good week y’all.

My Son had Febrile Seizure!

So Tuesday night my son had a Febrile Seizure. This was my first time witnessing a seizure and his first seizure. Before he had the full blown seizure he was just shaking. I had called my mother who lives in the building behind us. She hanged up the phone and I called 911 when it was happening.

Had it not been for the train 911 operator and the medics who came to our apt I would of been in a full blown panic and my son Ethan would of been in a much worse position.


I’ve done some research on Febrile Seizures. And this is what it is.

Convulsion in a child that may be caused by a spike in body temperature (fever).

Rare

Fewer than 200,000 US cases per year

Treatable by a medical professional

Requires a medical diagnosis

Lab tests or imaging not required

Short-term: resolves within days to weeks

A febrile seizure most commonly occurs on the first day of a fever. It may last a few minutes and is usually harmless.

Symptoms may include staring, severe shaking, or tightening of the muscles. A child may lose consciousness.

Children should be evaluated if it’s their first seizure. Emergency medical care is needed for repeated seizures or those lasting over 10 minutes. Medications to treat fever and persistent seizures may be used.

According the the Mayo Clinic.

My sons Drs at the Children’s hospital said I did the right thing by calling 911 when I did. I’m going to the #18 Firehouse in St. Paul. To thank the first responrs. Who helped us on Tuesday night.

Ethan is doing better than Tuesday and back in Preschool.

St. Jude Walk Event.

St. Jude Walk Event.

Hello all So Saturday last week was the Main Event and I walked it with a boot this year. Didn’t want to but I had to. I had already told people about me walking in this event on the 23rd of September. And so I didn’t want to back out. I took my time and walked almost 4 miles around the Us Bank Stadium. It was hard but I did it.

Here are some of the photos and video of me walking around the stadium.
