Another week and another installment of “I’ve Got Something to Say About This…” Today marks the end of sign up for Obamacare, although that is not what I will be writing about here. There could be a lot to say about signing up for health insurance and being forced to sign up for it, or else you pay for it. This week, I have choose to focus on writing about something a little bit closer to home.
Another week has come and gone and we are back to the start again. There is so much going on or not going on in the world but there are sometimes the things that happen right in your backyard, so to speak, that just gets you thinking. There are many things I could talk about like what is going on in Ukraine or that you have until 3/31 to sign up for Obamacare, but there was something a bit close that is upsetting. This past weekend, a barge hit another ship and spilled oil into the Galveston bay and as Monday morning comes, it is still an issue.
Another week and I feel very ill prepared. Today is St. Patrick’s day and we are supposed to celebrate it with the wearing of green and typically if you do not wear such color then it will result in a “pinch” from others. I am glad that I don’t know many people who still abide by such “rules” especially since I forgot to wear green today. I do have green eyes, although that is never accepted, or at least by most. My boyfriend asked why do we celebrate it here in the US and it got me to thinking about the reason why. When you log on to Google, it is decorated for the day, but do we know why? Do we care? Is it just an excuse to party, drink green beer and celebrate? What is St. Patrick’s Day all about?
Another Monday morning and for most here it is Spring Break. I miss the days of being in school and getting a week off to do whatever I wanted, it seems like a distant memory, but I guess so do most things as we grow up. But it’s another week and so another segment. There has been much going on in the world, most of which tragic and disheartening. There are many things I could talk about this week, but this morning I found this article.
So last night was the biggest night in Hollywood for motion pictures, it was the handing out of the Oscars. This is the night where all the celebrities come together and pat themselves on the back and act like children, from time to time. I honestly enjoy the Oscars, it is fun and over the years it has gotten quite a bit more entertaining. Last night was not exception, but regardless of if you think movies are deserving of this awards or not, there is another award show that happens around this time every year too.
After reading more about “The Razzies”, which I have been aware of for many years now, it has quite an interesting history and each year it serves up the “worst” that movies has to offer. This year was no different but just like with the Oscars, I have no doubt there will be people who don’t agree with their choices either.
Another week, another issue, another post. Sometimes it seems like that, just “another” although we might not be getting where we want to be, but we are getting further along. I can’t say if my segments each week are having an impact overall, but I know that these at least get a few views every now and then and a couple comments too. I am hoping overtime this will continue to grow and others will possibly want to participate as well. Ideas, guest posters and suggestions are always welcome below and at my email: firstname.lastname@example.org so please keep reading and letting know what you think about it all.
I was humbled this weekend by the notification of finally getting a 1,000 likes on here too. It has been almost three months and I am pleased with that. I appreciate all of those who have come across my blog and liked, read, commented or anything. We only get better by putting the work in and making adjustments when needed. So without any other adieu for this week’s reading please my topic is celebrities.
So much is happening in the world and in the news. This is another week to comment on what is going on around the nation, but this week it reaches a little bit wider. We all talk about the death of our youth, but this takes is quite a bit further. Sadly this world is filled with so much pressure and stress and with social media it is only making it easier. This week, I will focus on just how this is all coming together in a horrible, deadly way.
Some days I go and read news just to see what people have to say after them. I have been doing a segment weekly called “I’ve Got Something to Say About This…” where I speak about popular topics and give my two cents. I feel discouraged most of the time after going and reading things that people write on most of these news stories that I write about. I was looking online this weekend for news articles and events that I could use for this week and ended up being too focused on the comments that I read. I think this week I am going to do a little something different for my segment.
I admit that I have been out of sorts lately and did miss this segment last week, sorry about that. But this week, I am here and back at it. There has been lots of things in the news lately to speak about and honestly I didn’t think that this would be what I would talk about, but after hearing all the different stories and mentions of it, I can’t help but share my two cents on the matter. I am an avid football fan, so of course, last night I sat down with most Americans and watched the biggest game of the year the Superbowl. Despite the lack luster game, there were enjoyable moments, the halftime show was great and some pretty good commercials too. That is what brings me to the topic of this weeks post, one of those commercials.
After the holiday, I missed the start of the week and getting my blog post up, but now I am back in full swing. This is the time of year when NFL is king, so to speak and this weekend was no different. All eyes where in Denver and Seattle and what a show both had, although Seattle had both a bit more excitement and “rants” to talk about. So that brings us to this weeks “I’ve Got Something to Say About This…” NFL edition.
