All posts for the month August, 2009

Bittersweet Saturday

Published August 29, 2009 by ladyserenity92

Saturday, August 29th, 2009.

The day that is bittersweet.

This day would have been Micheal Jackson’s 51st birthday.

It is the day Sen. Ted Kennedy was laid to rest.

The day in which this is the last weekend of the month of August. And the month of summer of 2009.

As I look ahead of the new month of September, 2009, I come to reflect on what has been and what should have been.

The summer was a time of joy and a time of sadness.

We can never go back to the joy nor sorrow from which we experienced.

We as human beings must walk on to the future and make a mark in our lives.

The past is gone forever.

We must try to enjoy the now and begin a new future, which is life.

Bless you, dear ones. Have a wonderful weekend!

A: Read

Q: What did the blond teenager say to her friends when they were eating Fruit Loops?

Yo momma Joke

Your momma is so annoying, that when she tried to play with a Tickle me Elmo doll, the doll slapped her in the face.

The Lion’s Eulogy

Published August 27, 2009 by ladyserenity92

This  post is dedicated to the family of Sen. Ted Kennedy and to Ted himself.

The life of the last prince of the American kingdom of Camelot came to a close. Massachusetts Sen. Edward ‘Ted’ Kennedy passed on in the last hour of Tuesday. He was 77. The youngest son of nine children, Sen Kennedy had the spirit of a lion. Brave, free-spirited; in the Kennedy family dynasty the free-spirited boy grew into a man of wisdom.

After the bitter lost of his two older brother John and Bobby, Sen. Kennedy took the crown and became the Senator of Massachusetts. Sen. Kennedy’s final unselfish act was nominating Barack Obama into the seat of the White House. In the last months of his earthly life, Ted Kennedy worked to pass a bill on free health care as his health was declining.

In the end, The Lion died in his family’s view at his home by the sea.

In a quote from his late brother, President John F. Kennedy, John once said: “We were born from the sea. When our life ends, we will return to the sea from which we came.”

Farewell, Lion of Camelot.

Sen. Ted Kennedy (1932–2009)

Jumping into risky waters

Published August 26, 2009 by ladyserenity92

We are in the last days of August. The summer of ’09 is coming to a close. The summer of ’09 was a period of delays and slow post and the effectsthat I felt. The emotion and pain of losing fans and making broken promises. I felt so overwhelmed and stressed, I felt like I was losing control. I made the tough decision to rest and take a short break from blogging. As a new season comes, I feel refreshed and much more stronger like a butterfly.

The fact that I no longer have home Internet service has what made me spend more time with my family and friends. I’m much more focused on my schoolwork and often sleep a lot. I now know that my blog won’t ‘die’ and that I have to take breaks and rest so I don’t overload myself. In my self–discovery, I learned that I must put my faith, my family and friends first. I have to be more disciplined, take risk and make sacrifices.

Taking risk and making sacrifices is like interviewing Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh. He may dislike me and I may dislike him; but in the bud, the right–wing lion becomes a tamed kitten. It just takes time getting use to it. (My bad, Mr. Limbaugh. I was just using you as an example. Please forgive me.)

It has been thirteen months since I became a blogist. It’s never easy to be a blogger. Sure you may not be famous or don’t get paid for your words. (I only got a few fans myself.) But in time the reward will be worth it.

Taking chances means being unorthodox. You may post a Christmas poem in the middle of March or you may give a singing review on YouTube. In order to run a blog, you have to jump off the cliff and into the river  like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. I confess to anyone reading this post that I sometimes write on paper before posting what I have written on the blog. I am a rare breed of blogist who still do that.

A person wanting to host a blog or a first-time blogist may hear a voice of reasoning and self-doubt, chastising  that person: No one will read your blog, there are too many blogs out there for you; no weblog for you, oh, give it up, honey. No one isn’t interested in your dumb, weak blog.

Well, you tell that voice to shut it, shut up and nip it.

Stop making up excuses and host your blog. If you don’t want to have a blog, wait until you’re ready. You have to think in advance what you want to blog about. My advice is to write down the post first on clean paper, then type it on the post. Just take your time. In fact, read a book about blogging or surf the net. They are even classes about blogging. Most of the time, you get a blog as a gift for participating. Where did you think I started out being a blogger?

Overtime, some people(like me) can have a weakness. Try to get over it before it controls you.

Before placing a post, do your research and your homework. See what will fly and what will crash. The most important part of running a blog is to do heavy research on what to post. You have to take risk in order to be a better blogist. You need commitment, the heart and the soul. Bottom line: post from the heart. The heart is what readers and fans of weblogs loves about.

You/you and your group hold(s) the key(s) of opportunity of the faith of your weblog. Will you jump in the water and take the risk?

The choice is yours, my friends.

Vampire Knight (Manga review)

Published August 25, 2009 by ladyserenity92

Childhood friends and Cross Academy school guardians Yuki Cross and Zero Kiryu are two teenagers who protect the day class from the night class. When twilight comes, the night class crosses the paths of the day class. Besides Yuki and Zero, the day class is blind to the hidden and dark secret: The night class is really a class full of young men and women who are vampires.

Vampire Knight has part action, part romance and part horror that is in the style of the Twilight novel saga. At first the book is slow, but after a few pages the action picks up steam. This manga from Matsuri Hino is a bit weak and fans of the Twilight and other teen and tween vampire stories will like this favorite, but this is not for readers that are sensitive, impressible or under 14 due to the innuendo and graphic violence.

Yuki Cross is a fighter without a past. Something that girls will like; as as her love interest Zero. Not the best, but a less tame for fans wanting to fill the void of Twilight, those who want to read vampire comics aimed at young readers and fans waiting for the release of the Anime version of Vampire Knight.

My Rating: B+

“Every night he makes love to me”

Published August 24, 2009 by ladyserenity92

What comes to mind when people think of that phrase? I think Yosuke would say that about John, or Mrs. Chase when she talks about Arron. Is it heterosexual bliss, homosexual bliss or marital bliss. What do you think this phrase means to you. Tell me about it in your post. As long as it is from a PG to a PG-13 level. No explicit, erotic, or graphic description of sexuality or anything pornographic. Just keep it clean, meaningful and soft. I want to keep this a safe place for children under 12.

I’m putting a new category on my blog call ‘Holla Back!’ Holla back is a segment in which I place a post and you the fans respond with your replies. You have given this blog a new spark.
