Pleased To Announce...

Link to the story:  Karmic Beginnings: I am very pleased to announce that I have posted the first chapter of my story on Wattpad to all of you! Those of you that have known me for a very long time know what I have always loved writing, journaling, and reading. I am inseparable from anyone of those things. Some of you also know that for years and years I have been working hard on my dreams to become an acknowledged writer. For years and years, I have been writing from notebook to notebook on story ideas I have come out with from out of the blue. I spent all my free time with my pen grinding on paper, buying stacks of five subject notebooks every year when they are on sale to just use to write my stories in before I switched over to using a computer.  Growing up- there was a lot of objections from family members telling me that I can't become a writer or even attempt because writers make no money unless you break through with some book that will change …

Amazon, Whole Foods, Online Versus Physically Going Out To Purchase

A lot of people are upset and stunned by the news of Amazon buying Whole Foods. Even though they said that Whole Foods will still be a chain of stores and operate. Many claim it's a tactic that Amazon is using to promote and push its new Amazon Fresh program. It is still upsetting to see another traditional store being bought by a company which thrives through online purchasing. Being in the retail industry myself- I can say that this is going to have an effect on fellow coworkers and the whole   retail industry itself. Everyone is worried for their jobs and how long can they stay afloat with their companies.

And when the news of Amazon buying Whole Foods was known worldwide, stocks for all the major grocery chains plummeted and are still struggling. Scary but not surprising how the action of one company can cause such a ripple through grocery chains that have been around for forever.

Whether or not grocery stores will disappear for good would be hard to tell, I feel that they wo…

How Will Samurai Jack End?

SPOILER ALERT! If you have not watched season 5, I highly advise you to turn back right now! Because what I will be talking about, is mainly concerning the last few episodes of Samurai Jack season 5. 
My boyfriend and I have been keeping up with the last season of Samurai Jack ever since it started and with the show finale being this weekend...we are just a bundle of emotions and excitement. To be honest, I have not really watched Samurai Jack prior to season 5. I watched season 1 and 2 and some scattered episodes here and there but nothing too consistent after season 2. 
However, the last two episodes of season 5 have left me in a bundle of aww's and ooo's and anger and woe. I love the bond that was built between Ashi and Jack. It has been an enjoyment to watch how these two came from enemies to comrades, to having romantic feelings for each other in a span of episodes. Watching Ashi struggle and find the right way was heartbreaking but not as much as seeing Jack so direction…

Etiquette On Tone and Phrasing

Think before you speak. I think that is one of the most important rules in life. This applies to where we go and whoever we speak to that was what my aunt once told me. And to speak only when addressed and needed. 
A lot of you may say that's total bologna and you choose to speak when you wish and as you please. Which is fine when the other person you are talking to does not think you are a douche or an arrogant person who has no basic respect and manners for them. 
We see this a lot now when we make calls to doctors' offices, call centers, or any other facility that you make calls to. The person on the other line tend to answer rudely or in a monotone that just tells you that they hate their job or they easily get irritated when you ask them to repeat some thing. Or it may have just been a stressful day. I understand that sometimes the fault doesn't fall only on one side. You may also be losing your patience and temper the longer something gets to be sorted. However, tha…

Catana Comics Is Too Surreal

Please check out Catana Comics works at:  Catana's Facebook Catana's Instagram .

Lately, I have been following a page on Facebook called: Catana Comics that my boyfriend introduced me to. I still remember how he introduced it to me like it was yesterday but ever since then I have been stalking her work closely. I know this is making me sound like a creep but her comics are really cute and realistic. The comments and fans she has are all amazing and they love her work so much so I advise you all to check her out as well! 
When my boyfriend showed me one of her comics, I immediately fell in love and found it so relatable and realistic to how my boyfriend and I are. Most of her comics mirror how he and I are when we are together and it's totally adorable. I told him that I felt like she was sketching out our cute little moments through her comics. 
As I read through the comments on her new posts, everyone said it was so real and how it was exactly was with their significant oth…

American Food Versus Asian Food

Don't get me wrong. I love american food. I love pizzas and the turkey and chicken burgers and stuff. However, one thing I have never understood when we go to eat out is why do american restaurants only serve ice water whereas in asian restaurants they serve hot tea. I never understood that though I always have ice water most of the time. It's refreshing but to even drink that during the winter is kinda yikes. Hot tea is different! It's health beneficial and there are many types of tea and also wakes you up if you are tired and sleepy! If anyone wants to discuss or explain why, I will be more than happy to listen. 

Onto the next rant! Most Chinese foods contain soy sauce because that is the main ingredient for seasoning in Chinese dishes. It's delicious and now that many companies are coming up with low sodium soy sauce that are healthier options for many. Asians typically love their food very bland if it is a home cooked meal. When they eat at a restaurant, they typi…

Poem: Artists

Artists listen, observe, and feel.
A single portrait can cause the world to tremble,
a single story can cause tears of strangers to fall,
a single song can cause memories to resurface.
The power an artist holds in their hand is limitless.

Brushes, pencils, paper, pens, paint, instruments,
such simple tools with such boundless power.

A musician drumming away on their guitar,
a painter guiding their brush across their canvas gracefully,
a writer sitting down and scribbling across a notebook as they observe the scene.
What a sight of unswayed passion and fiery motivation they have.

They are the perfect trio of creation.
They paint the truth, the horror, the joy of life.
They sing the emotions of thoughts.
They write out what others are afraid of saying out loud.
They are the truth tellers of the world.
