Life Update: 5/7/2018

The first part of my life update is to let you know that I got Ben and Jerry's ice cream on my 8 button and now I'm incredibly sad because it's sticky. Now let's get onto the actual update since my addiction to non-dairy delicious ice cream is not really an update. It's a constant.

Let's see...

Since April, I've had a lot of ups and downs in every aspect of my life. The week of my surgery was rough. My stepfather had a seizure at home (which in the last month... we have found out that no one can figure out why). It was the scariest situation because I've never had to call 9-1-1 before for a medical emergency and I felt completely helpless. Thankfully, he's okay now. A few days after that, I had surgery on my nose. It was gross and maybe one day I'll write a blog about the process. It happened on April 13th (Friday the 13th, woo!). I had a septoplasty, biturbinate reduction, and something to do with a concha bullosa. I have no idea what really an…

Mommy Monday: I need YOUR help!

Stick with me here... I like to try to do different types of posts and trends to see what works and what doesn't. This blog is a constant trial and error. It's hard work but also therapeutic to me.

Mommy Monday! Mommy Monday! Mommy Monday!

So here's what I'm thinking. On Mondays, I'm going to try to post mommy-related posts. I'll need your help. Please please please help me!

These posts can range from parental advice, parental tips and tricks, my mommy life, venting from all, and other things that relate to being a mom. Don't fret if you're a dad. You can still participate. It's just easier to put Mommy Monday because it's catchy. but it's open to both parents or guardians/grandparents/etc!


So for my first post (here's where I need help): I want questions. They are completely anonymous. Completely. Anonymous. These questions can be semi-personal or whatever. Examples: "My child is struggling to potty train. How do I get him to go?!&q…

Why should I get a degree?

It's funny. I graduated high school in 2010. The main thing our guidance counselors shoved into our brains was that we had to get a degree to succeed. This may be true if you become a doctor or maybe a lawyer, but other degrees do not have the same output. Success tends to be measured by happiness and money. Degrees such as education, criminal justice, and others do not have the same income as others (like accounting, law, pre-med/medical school, etc.). 
So what is the purpose of getting a degree if that's true? Why put yourself into debt? What is the benefit of getting a degree? 
Honestly, it's up to the person. For example, my dream job is to be a professor. For me to do that, I have to get a master's degree to teach at a community college (associate/bachelor level) and a doctorate to teach at a university (undergraduate and graduate). For me to achieve my dream job, I have to get a degree. It also means that I get to go heavily in debt. I regret not doing better in …

Felon Disenfranchsement: Why Felons Deserve the Right to Vote

Felon Disenfranchisement: Why Felons Deserve the Right to Vote Dori McDonough West Virginia State University Spring 2016

Abstract Felon disenfranchisement, in regards to voting, effects several Americans in the United States. Felon disenfranchisement is when people are prohibited from voting due to being convicted of a felony. The purpose of this paper is to analyze felon disenfranchisement in regards to voting rights. First, I will review the history of felon disenfranchisement. Then, I will assess how felon disenfranchisement causes further racial disparities in the United States. Finally, I will justify why felons deserve the right to vote. I concluded and data suggested felon disenfranchisement causes more harm than good. Felon disenfranchisement affects all United States citizens, not just felons.

Life Update: 4/5/18

Hi guys! Here's my monthly life update. Let's break this down now.

Graduate School
I'm in my last semester of graduate school. I'll have a master's degree in like... a little over a month. All that separates me is a PowerPoint and my comprehensive exam. I've been trying really hard not to procrastinate. I'm on track to graduate with a 4.0 GPA. With my master's degree! Aren't you proud of me? In a year, I'm going to try to get my doctorate. I'm applying for the June 2019 class at Cal U. It's pretty much the best option for what I want to do. If that doesn't work, I guess Marshall Ed.D. And if THAT doesn't work, then I'm just going to not become a professor. So fingers crossed. I'm not applying until I graduate so I can just buy my transcripts once.

Mental Health
I have not started a new anti-depressant yet. I've been really stressed out lately because I'm juggling so many hats. I'm in school. I'm working. I&#…

March 2018 TV Show Cancellations & Renewals

Marchin' right on into April. We are almost at the end of the Winter television show run and at the beginning of the Spring television show run. Summer is only a few months away. I found a lot of good television shows this Fall/Winter, but unfortunately, there's been a lot of crappy ones too. It seems like a lot of shows want to achieve that 30 minute sitcom perfection that my generation and prior grew up loving. It's apparently harder to achieve than you think because so many keep getting cancelled. Here's what made the cut.
