I am learning how to Code

This is new territory for me. I’ve been seeing a lot of videos on TikTok about coding and if you know me I am always up for a challenge and learning something new.

Do you know how to Code?

Have you ever wanted to learn?

Under my Almond Tree

Sometimes the only thing you can do is sit still. I often just find myself sitting on a chair under the big almond tree in the back yard. I haven’t been out here in awhile. I created this corner so that whenever I feel lonely, trapped and or uncertain of my next move I’d just sit under the tree and some how a solution would find its way into my thoughts.

Nature does that for me. It soothes and calms my nerves. I’m not one to easily give up but lately I feel that it doesn’t matter what you do something will not be okay for some people. I need to just relax take things as they come, breathe and move on.

I am not perfect, I make tons of mistakes but in making my mistakes I truly see them as experiences. Everyday I am reminded that people are people. That phrase can be interpreted in so many ways. People are people and it doesn’t matter who you are, social status, sex, orientation etc.

Today was hectic, I still managed to get much work done. Thankfully I was alone in the office. Again being alone helps, I can hear my thoughts and I can focus more, they’re limited distractions.

So my almond tree corner in my back yard. I poured a glass of 🍷 and this is what true peace is. Being still and being one with nature. The problems will sort themselves out.

Here we go Again…

It wasn’t easy at first. Things were going great I had my plan and I was just taking things one day at a time. Shit happens and then you find yourself in limbo trying to decide do I take out this loan or do I cancel the subscription instead.

I don’t like starting something and not being able to complete it. I started out so good learning Spanish and French and then I just lost track of what was happening and completely stopped doing lessons. I no longer have the paid versions. The apps are still on my phone in the event I’m ever tempted to try and do a refresher.

It’s a new year, we’re almost in the month of March. So far so good, I’ve had several disappointments however I am not deterred. I am using these nos to make something of myself and situation. Hearing No can be very daunting.

It’s never easy I am in the middle of completing this degree and still find myself browsing the internet trying to find another course to complete. I must be crazy cause I did tell myself I am tired of the classroom. I just feel that the more information I have the more I will be able to help and serve.

I don’t know how I got here but I want to learn How to use Python. Yeah, this is a total stretch from Business Management. I am however excited to see what I can learn from it. Udemy currently has sales.

Be motivated, get up and get the work done.

Tis the Season!

As I walk the busy streets, I can hear the music sounding from a far. Shoppers moving bristly about their daily chores and window shopping. Across the street, people are busy making TikTok videos to the latest dance challenge.

It’s been a good run. We are in the 12th Month and while many things have happened and are happening I am great ful that I am able to share what has been going on.

Life happens, I am enrolled in school full time plus still working my busy and demanding job all while being a mom and wife. It works in its own chaotic way. School is very challenging I am learning a lot and doing pretty well being a straight A student.

My knowledge and appreciation has grown for scholars, educators and people that want to achieve and do marvelous things. Knowledge is indeed Power. I have learned so much in the few months that I have been in school. My discourse with counterparts are more enriching. I have no time for drama, never did but what I have noticed is that the more you grow the more you learn that people will be people. People Pleasers always finish last and will experience burn out.

Boundaries are important I preach it ever so often as well as practice it. I don’t answer my phone outside of work hours. I don’t respond to any form of work emails etc. I take my leave whenever I see the need and just shut myself away from anything that causes me stress. This has helped me significantly. Last year this time I was so stressed and burned out. Boundaries are good people, set them.

I do get the reminders to share on the blog however my schedule doesn’t allow as much free time as needed. I hope that you’re all doing well and you’ll have a holly jolly Christmas. Spend time with family and friends. If you’re going to be alone this Christmas volunteer at a children’s home visit the zoo, adopt a pet just so that you can take your mind off things.

Hopefully I will return before the year ends if not Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy prosperous New Year.

Speak Up

Silence isn’t always golden. This is a phrase I shared in 2011 on my Facebook page.

Silence- complete absence of sound (noun) google definition.

I was never one who always spoke up for myself for failure to get on someone’s bad side. All this changed after I’ve realized Silence isn’t always golden. Speaking up allows the other person to know how you’re feeling, whether you’re in agreement or not. It’s important to share your feelings without fear of the outcome.

I’ve been reading books, listening to podcasts talking to people who are very unapologetic about who they are and what they bring to the table. If you’re at a job and you have all the ideas that would make a process work and you don’t say anything, that is to your detriment. How many times have you missed an opportunity to share ideas and even get ahead in life? What has your silence done for you?

After reading the book The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F$@k – Mark Manson it has further cemented me to speak up or focus more directly on what makes me happy. Putting yourself first allows you to strive, to grow and achieve things that you’ve always wanted to achieve.

Whatever you do or say always focus on the bottom line YOU. Ensure that all your encounters leaves you satisfied with your response to any situation. It doesn’t happen over night it takes practice and drive. Never miss another opportunity to shine because you remained silent.

Silence isn’t always golden.

Until next post….

Update: Covid Experience

So you guys know that I’ve been free of the Covid-19 virus for two years but caught it a week or so ago.

I must say that outside of the positive test I wouldn’t know that I was actually carrying this virus. I woke up feeling awful, that’s typical when I have bad sinus days. The cough was not even an indicator, with change of climate especially around winter I would have days when I just had a cough.

Thankfully I had reasons to take a Covid-19 test I got tested and was able to quarantine. I did so per the CDCs instructions. At the end of the period I did a home test which was negative. I further did a PCR molecular test and that also showed I was negative.

I am thankful for my family who was able to provide support during this time, running errands and or being their on video calls to keep me company. I am also grateful that I did not experience any major problems while being positive and I lived to tell the tale.

Since everything I’ve been double masking to to be extra careful. It would’ve been nicer to not get the virus after being vaccinated, but sh*t happens.

I hope that you all are keeping safe.

Until next post…
