A day out with friends

Hi Blog world,

I had an amazing weekend. I got to spend the whole day with my best friend. I’ve been missing my best friend a lot since we haven’t been able to get together since April. So she surprised me with a Christmas gift of hanging out for the whole day. We had a blast.

We first went to Applebee’s for lunch, and we all have hamburgers. I had the Quesadilla burger I really like this burger because it combines two of my favorite things, Mexican and hamburgers. The burger had a great mixture of sweet and spice with a crunch from the quesadilla. I loved the fries too. (That’s one of my guilty pleasures 🙂 )

Once we were done eating we went to the movies, and we continued to enjoy the day with a big bowl of popcorn that we shared together. I had a vanilla coke too. That was really sweet. To top that off, I had Reese’s Pieces (which is another one of my favorites)

The movie we saw was called “The Star,” and I enjoyed the movie. It was funny, and easy to follow since I’m visually impaired. If you haven’t seen the movie I highly recommend you go see it.

I really enjoyed spending the day out with my friends.

How has 2017 been….June

Hi Blog world,

Another month has quickly pasted, and instead of complaining about being on Unemployment Island I’ve decided to pick out three positive things that happened!

  1. I got to have lunch with a  group of my friends! We went to an Italian restaurant I had a meatball sub; and it was amazing.  I even got to enjoy a chocolate chip cookie for dessert. (One of my favorites 🙂 )

2. I have the most supportive group of friends in the whole wide world. From here locally to all the way from England to India. They support my writing and what I am trying to achieve.  When we get a chance to chat online we have a blast and I couldn’t be more thankful for them.

3. Lastly, I got to see a live taping of a show called “Inner Voices,” this specific show was about an Indian named Chief  Blue-Eyes and about his culture. The show was very interesting and I learned a lot.

After the taping my supervisor and I went to a Mexican restaurant to celebrate my one year work anniversary.

Hello from the road-traveling around the US

Hi Blog world,

Hello from the road; I am traveling around the US. I am currently visiting family and friends.  So far I have visited my Aunts, Uncles, and my cousin.

I am also taking a computer class online for the summer and so far it has been going well.  I had to create a new blog for my Computer Mediated Communications class.  I will add a new page, and I will add the link to that blog site as soon as it is up and running.  One quick note though, I will continue to use my WordPress blog as my main blog.

Blog soon,
