Never Too Late



Writing Prompts: Is there a person you should’ve thanked, but never had the chance? Is there someone who helped you along the way without even realizing it? Here’s your chance to express your belated gratitude.

It would defiantly be a group of people, When I moved to Las Vegas to go to graduate school, it was the very first time that I had ever been away from my family and my home, and for the first 8 weeks I was miserable, just seriously feeling out of place and homesick and I felt like I had made to wrong choice in coming here.. EVERYTHING was different than what I was used to. Slowly by slowly I started to meet people and I’m not sure if they knew it or not but they really helped me, treated me like family and really allowed me to enjoy my experience, wish lessoned the home sickness.

One of the reasons I look back so fondly at that time in my life, is the people who I met and became my friends, and for the most part I think they all know that everything they did for me was appreciated by myself but my mother as well, I think for a time she was worried for the same reasons I was and after she visited me she was more at ease about the situation.

So to Robin, Bill, Anne, Paul, Gail, Nicole, Renee, Nathan and so many others Thank you…

Until Next Time….

Under the Snow

Writing Writing Prompt: You were caught in an avalanche. To be rescued, you need to make it through the night. What thought(s) would give you the strength to go through such a scary, dangerous situation? There has been lots of times when I felt like I have been under the snow. I to be honest I haven’t been an good at it. I would be the first one to ask why me.. and why do I have to worst luck ever. I usually call my mom and she’s the one who can talk me down. But in this case I would assume to that there would be nothing she could do so it would defiantly be all me, When things are incredibly difficult people say that you have to take it one day at a time, but honestly that’s to hard, it’s one minute at a time, if I can be strong enough to get though that one minute I can try again with the next one, until all those minutes turn into a day. I would love to sit here and write that I have these amazing coping skills because the truth to the matter is that I don’t, it’s easier for me to deal when it’s happening to someone else, and I becomes super rational and do what needs to me done, but as I’ve mentioned before than when emotions come into play there is no rhyme or reason to what I will do. To make the time pass by I think I would sing songs, to strange and sporadic movents to occupy myself and keep warm, but pray that people find me, Until Next Time…. tyra signature

Leftovers Sandwich



Writing Prompt: Today, publish a post based on unused material from a previous piece –a paragraph you nixed, a link you didn’t include, a photo you decided not to use. Let your leftovers shine!

This was some material that didn’t quote make it to my Naowrimo Project titled “The Pact”:

While driving down I-58 I get a phone call. “See your problem is that you laid to get laid Rox” preached my cousin Katrina, “Well hello to you Kat, I’m fine, thanks for asking by the way…. how are you doing? Do you have everything set for the wedding?, I reply, somewhat annoyed for humors sake I ask her to continue, “you’re so damn frigid all you need is a good hard fuck to set you straight”. “Why am I talking to you, better yet, why are you calling me did you have something to say, or did you just want to insult me?, “ Girl, no I called because I love you and I can’t wait to see you. How much longer before you get here?”

“I should be there in an hour, I just stopped not to long ago to let Prince Harry go take a break”

“You still have that damn dog?”

“Yes, Harry is my baby, leave him alone”



Until Next Time….

Happy Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving is the appointed time
for focusing on the good in our lives.
In each of our days,
we can find small blessings,
but too often we overlook them,
choosing instead to spend our time
paying attention to problems.
We give our energy
to those who cause us trouble
instead of those who bring peace.
Starting now,
let’s be on the lookout
for the bits of pleasure in each hour,
and appreciate the people who
bring love and light to everyone
who is blessed to know them.
You are one of those people.
On Thanksgiving,
I’m thankful for you.
Happy Thanksgiving!
