2022 is off to a great start. My word for this year is Intentional.
Intentional– according to Google -adjective – done on purpose; deliberate.
This year I want to be Intentional with everything that I want. I am going to be intentional with my job, family, my relationships and overall my goals.
I often see people sharing the amazing things they have achieved while managing their chaotic lives and frankly that’s something I’ve always admired and wanted for myself. They’ve motivated me to be my best self. I am my biggest motivator and competitor if I want it I can achieve it.
The last time I did French, was in the 8th grade, many moons ago and well Spanish was a fave of mine ,I did it up to first year of College. Last year, someone I followed on twitter , shared how they were able to learn a new language on the app Babbeland Duolingo . Both apps are available on the App and Playstore, they’re free with option to get more if you purchase plans. They’re offering crazy discounts if you sign up for a year plan. I’ve done both and so far so good and I am learning a new language.
Yesterday was my birthday 🥳 🎉🎈🎊. Every year as a gift to myself I purchase something or giveaway something special. This year I kind of went ham and got myself a new IPhone. Yep! Kind of crazy I know. I still love Android of course I still have my Samsung 6S Lite. That’s my baby ☺️. I have been ignoring the itch of getting the new IPad 9 even when Apple and all those sites kept on sending me the discount codes. I have decided that I will not be making anymore purchases for now.
They’re other goals that I would love to achieve in 2022 and beyond and managing my finances will help me to realize those dreams.
I’m excited to learn both French and Spanish. Join me on this journey. Let’s be friends and challenge each other on the respective platforms. Both offers beginner to advance levels and you can schedule your lessons depending on your daily routine. I do 10 and 15 minute sessions and I love that the app also offers practice and live sessions so that I can interact with people who are pretty much beginners.
Ok so this has not worked out as I hoped. The internet service where I’m at is out of pocket. What I’ll do is make the posts and then once service allows I will publish.
I moved to a different location. My family is way up north. The weather is what I’d call bipolar. Last night it was so Windy, trees fell into the road, the officers and firefighters were kept busy. Today, it’s Sunny Sunday with no evidence of what happened last night.
We went shopping at the store just to pick up a few essentials and lots of bottled water. I’m not liking the water here. I met some of my Dad’s friends and we got a chance to catch up.
I saw the most interesting thing in my Dad’s makeshift garden or what’s left of it. A baby squirrel, I’ve never seen one so up close. It moved so fast into the bush I couldn’t get a good picture.
We are going sightseeing. I’m hoping to see as many attractions as possible. The last time I was here I didn’t get a chance to do. I will be here for a few weeks.
I hope that you all are okay and having the best time with your family and friends. Christmas is the time for rekindling friendships and spending time with the ones who matters the most. Catch up with you all on Day 13.
One year ago I took the plung and did a thing. One year ago I came out of my comfort zone and shared feelings in a space and became apart of a community of creative people who have different interest but one goal, blogging.
After one year, I can attest to the fact that I have learned so much and is still learning how to maneuver this space. Thanks to you all that continues to share with me. I appreciate the support. Blogging is fun, it’s therapeutic. I didn’t know that I would have gotten this far ,I’m still around. You’re still around.
Let’s continue to share and learn from each other. Happy blogversary Deetheory.
It’s one year later since Covid-19 graced our shores. A year ago today we had our first case, twenty eight thousand cases and counting over five hundred deaths later. Covid-19 has ruined a lot of lives. People who depended on Tourism was first affected, with little or no travellers to support them. The government gave grants but that money could only cover a week’s meal. People had to get creative, challenge the status quo. Covid-19 was bad but it birthed an appreciation for a level of creativity I’ve never seen before, it challenged people to think outside of the box or even made them throw away the box all together.
One year later though some people may not have the same jobs are living differently it has allowed people to reflect. I too have been affected my this virus, thankfully I remain negative however when you’re used to spending time with family and friends taking different adventures every other weekend not limited to a 8pm curfew; that sucks but I’m still alive and very thankful.
During the pandemic I got so bored being at home that I started doubting myself. I however after much thought created this blog as an outlet to share my thoughts. Surprisingly when I started writing I didn’t expect that there would be so many people all over the world ,would support me. The interactions grew and friends of deetheory was born. My self doubt birthed a new passion of sharing, believing that someone out there wants to hear what I think and that is just awesome.
Covid-19 has not only been bad it has made people more conscious about their health. It’s rather fascinating that I haven’t caught the common cold since I’ve started paying attention to everything I come in contact with. Visits to the doctor were for different ailments outside of my control.
For everyone who has lost someone to this deadly virus, sincerest condolences. If you are still trying to put a grasp on all that has happened and still trying to navigate your life whole strain you have made it this far and that’s something to be grateful for.
The vaccine has graced our shores and I can’t wait to take it. I know things have changed but this is the only chance to get to some form of normalcy. It won’t be business as usual but it will limit the need for certain restrictions.
What has been your experience? One year later how has Covid-19 treated you?
It was a Thursday afternoon when I received the call from a Doctor on the Covid19 hotline, she asked me my name and told me that someone who I have been in contact with had the Covid-19 virus. Shock, disbelief everything that could go worong flashed before my eyes. I immediately thought of the person who was now a victim of this deadly virus. A close family member who had just been released from the hospital. I was the one who broke the news to them. What now ? I excused myself from the office after telling my assistant and my immediate supervisor.
I had to go home. I needed to break the news to my family. As a mom you worry about your child and you would do everything to protect them. I felt awful, I didn’t want to hurt my child. The Doctor who made the call was reassuring she sent an email with a quaarantine order immediately had us scheduled for a test to see if any of us had the virus. Thankfully the results were all negative. We were still asked to remain in quarantine just in case.
My family member with whom I was exposed was also quarantined and isolated. It was a challenging few weeks. We made it work. I am still shocked how many people take this virus as a hoax. While we are all ok and not experiencing any symptoms we are still being cautious.
Covid19 is not a joke. I want you all to continue to remain vigilant. It is true to treat each and every person with whom you come in contact with as if they already have the virus.
1.Keep your distance
2. Wash Your Hands every chance you get
3. Wear Your Mask
4. If you are experiencing any symptoms, stay home and call your medical advisor or a Covid Hotline in your area and wait for instructions.
I have decided to take a mental break until February. My experience and outcome though favorable has really affected me. I can’t stress this enough keep your loved ones close and dear. If you’re not able to see them call. Video calls were very helpful in the two weeks I was stuck at home.
Continue to keep safe!, We will catch up in February.
