Floetry Friday: Session#3 – “Sleep” written by Jan Eleven

Floetry Friday is the day I try to post something from a poetic standpoint, whether it be a poem I wrote or kicking rhymes on camera. This week I present a poem about something we need more of: Sleep! Sometimes Sleep is the first thing to be sacrificed to accomplish a goal. However, its our best friend in today's world, resting out bodies for the battle ahead.

Blogisode #17: Today! We celebrate! Our Independence Day!

Everyone doesn't have the same views on holidays. Most of them don't even know the reason for the holiday except that it's a free day from work. Do people celebrate our Nation's birthday the same way because that's what society has programmed into our brains to think? Or do we truly know what we are celebrating? Or ever care on top of that? Read my new Blogisode to see what my family and I did. Also, what I really think about the Independence Day holiday! Enjoy!

Blogisode #16: Be Kind and Rewind…but never look back.

For this Blogisode, my topic is bit different, turning this into a combination of a movie review and motivational message. In the Bible, God says he's everywhere and in everything. So, I feel there's a message to be learned in any situation, depending if your eyes are opened wide enough to see it. Read about how I found a life lesson in a below-the-radar hit comedy that I stumbled upon in the past week! Trust me, this Blogisode is a Can't-miss!

I aimed for no more than 1000 words. I got 874.

My Attempt: Graffiti isn’t art

The painted eyes never tired, closed, nor slept. At the end of the day, the passersby dwindled, but the harsh words clung to the pastel image. Vandalism, not art. Every day brought new people. They rushed by, shuffled by, hobbled along past the wall where he lay. Their open mouths spat accusations and…

Like a Woman Scorned…

I liked this blog so much that I had to repost! Enjoy everybody!

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

This post tonight, is being served with a side of indignation.

Because I am angry.

I hesitate to post this, because, well…you’ll see. But I need to vent.

You see, I’ve recently started reaching out to various potential sponsors for my blog. Exciting times, I know.

So I contacted an eating disorder treatment center this afternoon. Wrote them a beautiful letter, inviting them to check out my blog.

And this woman sends me back a one-liner: “Certainly promotes being skinny!”

Exclamation point.

Certainly promotes being skinny…exclamation point.

First of all…the fact that a mental health professional wrote such a derogatory word to a former anorexic is just the epitome of insensitive.
