This week for the writers workshop I picked to write about 2.) Amy Winehouse died. Another name amidst a growing list of talented celebrities lost to addiction. Your reaction.
It makes me sad to hear about anyone who dies because of their addictions. There are tons of people each year that die because of addictions and yet people only seem to care about the celebrities. It makes me sad to know that people do die because their brains think they need the drugs and alcohol. When I in college the fall Sophomore year, which is the same sememster that I got pregnant, I moved into a new dorm apartment and I was living with 2 drug addicts. I would go home on weekends because I worked at Kmart by my parents house. I would leave on Friday afternoons and when I got back Sunday night they were still on the couch when they had been when I left. I was going home for Thanksgiving and I realized that I hadn’t seen the roommate what was staying in the dorms for the holiday. After I left I knew something was wrong so I called the housing office and had them go and check on her. By the time I got home which was 45 minutes later or so I got a call from one of the campus cops I knew that they found her dead. She was big into prescription drugs. The night before she had passed out on her bathroom floor but she was breathing and I refused to babysit grow adults. When I woke up in the morning she wasn’t there anymore so I figured she had moved into her room.
It was such a shock to realize that her addictions killed her. I still look back and I can see what was happening and I watched her get in so deep with her addiction that it killed her. I moved home during Christmas break and I have always wondered what ever happened to the other roommate. I know she was into drugs heavy as well and I wonder if they killed her or if she is still around. I always hoped that she got sober but I doubt that she did. I hate to hear about other people that die because of their addictions because it is such a waste of a life. They miss out on so much all because of a drug they think they need to survive.
We need to focus more on the everyday people that die then on the celebrities that pass way. It is sad that they die but they do have more resources to get sober if they want to. Average people don’t have the resources that celebrities do to get sober. We need to make more programs for people that need/want to get sober.
That post is random but that is how my brain works! I hope everyone has a great Thursday!

This week for the Writers Workshop I am going to write about 1.) The simple things..
It is the simple things in life that make me happy:
Going home and chasing my girls around the house
Or listening to Sylvia “bark” like she is a dog
Hanging out with Misti just talking and laughing
Designing blogs for people
Laughing at the crazy things that people will say or do
Being around my grandma who can always make me laugh
Reading good books
With out all the simple things that make me happy life would be depressing!
Lately I have been feeling alone and I am not sure what has changed because I am doing the same things I have always done. I am for the most part a hermit but it usually doesn’t bother me. I am sure part of it is because I used to have Misti at work to talk with and what not. Now that they let her go I am the only girl and I just sit at my desk and I don’t have people to really talk to. I sit at my desk and answer the phones all day without anyone around to talk to. Then when I get home I go back to my room because I have designs that I need to get done so I am always alone. Most days being alone wouldn’t bug me but lately it is starting to get to me. I know I should go out more but I am so tired after work and on the weekends that I don’t want to. I have never been good at forcing myself to out either.
This post is super short but it is what I was thinking. I hope that it makes some sort of sense but if not oh well.
If you are looking for ways to get more traffic to your blog advertising is the way to go. Every time I have an ad on other peoples blogs I get so many more people dropping by to see what my blog is all about. I have several different packages you can pick from:
I will also be including a featured post about your blog and/or business. I will include any pictures links and anything else you would like. I will tweet about it and put it on Facebook on my fan page and also on my person page. I can also send out a newsletter to all my followers about your blog or business.
Since I am just starting I am going to give the first 6 people that are interested 3 more months free on top of what ever package you chose.
