Hey guuuyyysss! Im talking to you from the comfort of my bed. I have looked outside and seen the accumulation of snow thus far and thought thank goodness I can stay in and rest. It was declared yesterday that schools would be closed today due to the expected snow storm. Meanwhile, parents and others may STILL be expected to head out to work? My little sister has been told by her managers that they are going to open at 3:30pm. That just blows my mind right there but Im not the least bit surprised as some folks/companies only care about profit. Nevermind that they will be wasting electricity and putting their workers in possible danger while they travel back in forth on the road in this storm. To wait for customers who are being advised to stay indoors…..yeeeaaaaa let that sink in.
On another subject, I have receieved the February 2017 Degustaboxusa food box and cannot say it excited me much. It did however excite my LO who had seen an unboxing online prior to us receiving ours last night. He could not wait to open the included Walker’s Shortbread cookies. And they did not dissapoint either of us despite them being crumbs as most of it was broken up. As I already stated I was not excited by this months selection but happy to have recieved an extra item which I received in the past and loved. The Lovely chews! 😍😍😍😍 The other extras were two items I told them in the survey I DID NOT LIKE. The very artificial tasting gummies with yogurt from Welcher’s and the Jolly time popcorn that tasted like a bag of chemicals last month. The items for the February box was a hot sauce, cookies, dark chocolate bar with salt (wwhhyyy), a orange soda by Jones, two small packs of a sauce and a fettuccine package. I may have left one item out but I will simply come back and update this post later with pictures for accuracy! Ah!! As I type this out I have received a message from my sis and apparently after much thought her company will be closed today. 😒 😂

Soooooooo… in the last week the US citizens have seen on live TV or via the internet
1.Guns planted on a dead African American male that resulted in them saying those were gloves that appeared and not the gun(s) they claimed he had. And of course the officers said that they “feared for their lives” when they clearly outnumbered the unarmed victim. The discovery of the planted guns or “gloves” was shown in a slow motion replay of the LIVE CNN BROADCAST. You see the body on ground and officers watching the camera man so when the recorder panned away BOOM just like that guns MAGICALLY APPEARED ON THE GROUND! Link right here!
2.A video said to be of an NYPD cop beating and raping a young African American girl in a holding cell that hours later showed up on the web as an incident that took place in South Africa (saw these sources as weak but this is an issue in South Africa in general) which if you didn’t know was the new America as the lands are beautiful so Europeans and wealthy white Americans have moved there and white washed it to the point that Native (Decendants/Of color) South African girls had to protest not to long ago to WEAR THEIR GOD GIVEN NATURAL HAIR TO SCHOOL…. IN THEIR NATIVE LANDS which are now being occupied/controlled and run by large amounts of outsiders who clearly have no love, appreacition or respect for the original INHABITANTS of South Africa or ones image that is distinct to their DNA aside from their own #BottomLine. Cop raping teen (NYPD or South African, either way this is sick )
*AND NOW THE VIDEO WAS BANNED BY INSTAGRAM BUT I TOOK SCREEN SHOTS. I couldn’t or wouldn’t download it rather* Im sure you can find it somewhere on Youtube or etc. Millions saw this video in the last two days who would have saved it.
He punches her to knock her out and…..
3.Countless sports teams taking a knee when the first innocent lines of our otherwise racist National Anthem song begins. The lyrics are now globally known and no one can dispute the fact that it is not fitting nor has it ever been for a so called “Melting Pot” of a Country. Which thanks to technology in everyones hands we and the world are able to see how those in Authority really feel hence the action by athletes to take a knee since when it comes to people of color ESPECIALLY it would appear those who are suppose to be seen as protectors are now seen as lynch mobs they ought to fear and never call on.
4.Governers caught in their Ku Klux Klan robs and an US rep for North Carolina saying things like “The Protestors in Charlotte hate white people because they are successful and they’re not” If you have been paying attention to real news and not the Govt run media you caught that. And then the mainstream media may have mentioned it and his fake apology.
You know I just want to wake up and the Aura feel like it did in 1995….the energy and current climate of our Country is disturbing and it is the same eleswhere. I couldn’t avoid mentioning the crimes being committed and allowed or welcomed by our our “Government” which makes everyone see that the motives of the elected are not for the general publics best interest nor has it ever been. When everyday the media backs those with a badge as if they are not people with their own minds and bias we see very clearly what is going on. I say this is hell on earth and you make each day something different with whom you spend your days with and where you go and dont go. I understand that those who see whites taken into custody who have guns out and all cannot understand how it could NOT be the dead black mans/womans fault. But that is a delusional and blind way of thinking, if you are awake and know the history of all people and in particularly this Country you would get it. If you consider yourself a Human being you would want justice and senseless killing to end. I hear all the time this is all to create a race war but for those of color or aboriginal decent there has been an race war since Columbus and the men from prison (thieves, rapists, killers, pedophiles) the Queen gave him to find new lands ended up here in America and all the other places. Though without such crimes being committed by Law Enforcement and others that we KNOW OF you wouldn’t know how much we have never changed. History is repeating and we have a first row seat to witness the blatant cover ups and deceit shown by those in positions of power.
I’ll try to put myself in a happy place as if we dont live in a #sicksadworld. I do know some good people. People who want others to have food, clothes and shelter. An education, their parents ALIVE and a clean safe neighborhood no matter the color of their skin or personal beliefs. Im thankful for those real Human Beings that I do know. Im thankful for the little things that make my day. Im hopeful despite it all.
I have been curious about a few things as the days go by and I constantly recieve comments on one particular post. Is it a way to remain neutral in front of others by avoiding commenting on any other posts? Is this post the one that comes up most in your online searches?
Do you feel more comfortable leaving a comment where others have left one? Have you guys declared that one post the notify Tiesha post 😄.
That “Good afternoon and Happy Almost Friday…Day” post seems very popular these days. Wheter with real readers or spammers. I appreciate the love either way! Again, I was just curious and to address some of you guys questions in one shot here goes.
1. I Tiesha am the only one blogging hence my first post. I paid to create this space to express myself and will continue to do so. I have set things up in a very basic and clean manner for a reason.(I like getting to the point)
2. No, Im not interested in sharing which web hosting site I am using for various reasons. My apologies
3. I’m a novice when it comes to all this but I’am learning all by myself how to do this day by day. I learn something new almost every other day in regards to ways I can “improve” my site but Im not too interested in making mine look like a cash cow. You know with ads everywhere…I personally hate all that click bait stuff. But if anyone has any ideas that they really want to share with me you know how to contact me and if not keep reading. Im not opposed to suggestions but will always stay true to my own nature.
4. I dont worry about thieves who lack the ability to communicate and therefore troll for others work.
5. I only hoped that others would read my posts and enjoy or relate to them. Take what was useful and enjoy their lives. Which leads to the next answer..
6. I have not set up a means for you to contact me here for if you are a regular visitor you would have come across my other social media platforms like youtube and can message me there. Im not big on various emails and etc. Its me here and on youtube offering visuals!
7. I really strive to be just me. Not a copy.
8. I really am a geek at heart in regards to my love and apreaciation for the written word in (comic or Manga) form particularly lol. I read books too but they have to be under the romance or supernatural genre….ah who am I kidding those self help books and history books are my thing as well. Aw and children books thanks to my little one! I love pins (that you wear) so this is why I like the Lootcrate boxes but sadly the Anime box is my preference and phone charms are given instead of pins. So, I visit Hot topic whenever I get the chance or Ebay. I also ONLY watch shows with subtitles….basically k dramas, J dramas and Taiwanese dramas and Anime. My love for foreign films started with African movies! Have you ever seen the African movie called BEYONCE?
9. Thats all folks!
10. Enjoy your day!

Hello to all those taking the time to read this as regular visitors or those here for the first time reading with pure curiosity! Today, I thought about what I could share that perhaps many people are dealing with. Im a mom of one and that one is the most amazing being on the face of this earth to me. I love him dearly and strive to protect him as best as I can. See, my son was diagnosed on the spectrum (Autism) and as bright as he is he has trouble reacting as others would in certain situations. Not just anyone could or can deal with him, tolerate and redirect him when he is having trouble understanding a situation or transitioning from one thing to another. But thats not the problem on the bigger scale. Its that in my state he is not required to attend school right now YET I have been contacted non stop about Universal pre-k enrollment for him. When he is “required” I have other options to choose from other than public school but the state of NY and city NYC would try and make parents think otherwise by means of miseducation and bullying. Not knowing/caring about every individual situation. Because there are many departments even if one knows and understands someone else from another will continue to harrass you on the matter. I was literally harrassed by means of mailings and phone calls all this year regarding Universal Pre-k that is NOT mandatory but seems to be the push. If my degree was not in Education and my child was extremely behind in any area including social skills (that the help he gets at home and outside already does actively target) I would have continued looking for suitable schools. However, me knowing my child and what his strengths and weakness’ are I know that not just any environment would do and he continues to thrive and stay injury free being taught by me at home and with the assigned therapists he continues to see. It appears because I was vocal about being harrassed via mail with flyers and phone calls from the Dept. of Ed all year long that to make themselves appear innocent in that regard I have now recieved mailings about what NYC “STRONGLY RECCOMENDS”(their words in all the letters about Universal Pre K) from our health care provider and another agency.
Now listen to this to understand my concerns on the matter of how just throwing all 4 year olds into school no matter their personal overall developments is not ideal for everyone. Of course, if you have to work outside your home and have no other choice whatsoever other than to put them in pre-k I understand your situation and send nothing but positive vibes towards you and your little ones. But if you are the type of parent who wants a break from your hopefully average developmentally wise 4 year old then you might not understand or even care. (I still send positive vibes to you and your little one) If you could careless though you can stop reading now for we are two completely different kinds of people. The other day I ONLY learned that the owner of the center where my child goes for therapy subbed for the PT (phyiscal therapist) because my sons inner right arm was bruised and swollen. We stepped outside when my little one told me he hurt his arm and that he fell. I went back in for answers and an ice pack. Of course the owner and others had no clue that he was hurt and wheter they were lying or not is up for grabs. Of course other matters like does he even have the creditials to have subbed for the physical therapist to begin with came to my mind among some others like why was I not told of such an arrangement for that day beforehand. See, I understand my child and that others WILL NOT care for him like I do even when they are suppose to be operating with his and others like him best interest at heart. People do what is best for them espeacially when a child is unable to convey in full details what has transpired and this is of the upmost importance and a very crucial factor to consider when sending your child to be with countless other kids barely supervised as the required staffing for 12 or more toddlers are unrealistic as the requirements for the assistant teachers are. This is to say that anyone could literally work in Daycares or a Pre-school’s these days. And many times untrained volunteers and parents are doing such without outsiders knowing. Not to mention they are not being paid as they should be for being responsible for others children. In the past I had to actually report a day care my son (at age 2) was going to when I picked him up one day and his eye was bruised and no one at that day care made a proper incident report or bothered to call me between the hours they had him from 9am – 4pm. Of course no one there treated his eye area either! Im sure that there has to be some decent daycares and pre-schools somewhere for toddlers and toddlers recieving services like mine but I have yet to find them. The people and the environment would have to be safe enough for my child. Their interests would have to be soley on education and NOT medication. All too many times facilities for children on the spectrum disorder operate on the basis of selling pharmactical drugs for profit/kickbacks/Funding to toddlers in disguise of helping their development. Nevermind, the side effects! They have all sorts of “medical staff” and “social workers” not there to truely help the child and the parents but to do the opposite. Seeking to act on behalf of a child they do not know to ultimately have control and profit off of. Yes, of course many have a concious and actually do more positive than harm but it has to be said that there is a very thin line when money is involved.
Anyway, I thought to share this to give comfort to any other parent(s) who wished to have their child(ren) educated by other means than public school. For those who are like me and have been harrassed via mail and phone by the Dept of Ed over Universal Pre-K enrollmemt which is NOT MANDATORY in NYC nor the only educational option! If your child is speacial needs or has any developmental delays wheter physical, emotional or mentally or not and you know that everyday they would be bruised and swollen or something else detrimental to their well being if not properly monitored by the right kind of people or in the right kind of setting then you know that one size does not fit all and have your common sense reasons for seeking/exploring or continuing what is best for YOUR CHILD(REN). If those who work supposively for children’s best interest do not seek to know this much but blindly reccomend things then understand that they have ulterior motives! I suppose much could never be expected from those who push for children to be guinea pigs for all sorts of new vaccines for profit. Never admitting that vaccines are not a one size fits all and the 1# reason for almost all cases of children being diagnosed on the Spectrum with Autism/Neurological damage. Since the Dept of Health works with the Dept of Ed and neither want to link when a child has last recieved their vaccines to the fevers, seizures, lack of eye contact, lost of speech, various sensitivities and abnormal behavior or worst a paralyzed state and death even if its days apart from a wellness visit for shots/vaccines. Shots that have been proven to have heavy metals infused in them as cheap perservatives, blood that no one gets tested prior to receieving and dairy/nut by products again no child is tested for prior to getting the vaccine. Parents aren’t even given pamplets about all that is in these shots to begin with and the possible side effects like in my unfortuante case where my sons former Doctor advised that it was safe for him to get two or more shots a visit that equals over vaccination for many and raises the dangers! Or should I say did do so in his case! It is the elephant in the room even when parents have witnessed the horrific damages first hand and HONEST Doctors concerned with peoples well being and not profit have pointed to this epidemic only to mysteriously die not to long after due to “natural causes” or become discredited to discourage others in the medical field from being vocal and harming big Pharmas cash cow.
Please continue to love yourselves and your little ones. I wish those about to start pre school/Universal Pre-k and above all the very best! I will be looking for programs specifically designed for children like my son in regards to dancing or karate to enroll him in for the fall to get all his energy out and have some wonderful experiences! Talk to you guys later…..hopefully I get my Bobos and Degusta box before Sept 1st!
I cant say for a fact that the owner saw my blog post and then phoned me. I’ll just have my suspicions. Of course he could have really wanted to check up on my son. He called a couple mins ago to inquire wheter or not he was okay. I told him that he was and asked if in the future he had to sub if he could tell me and that I did not know his qualifications. Perhaps that struck a nerve because he exhaled heavily and said that he was the supervisor of all the PT’s and I believe he said he was a PT and that he has been doing this for 25 years. Now I let people know Im college educated but when folks tell me how long they have been working with kids as if ALL kids are the same I cannot relate to them. My son is not a copy but an original and is different from all the other kids at the therapeutic center. They are all different. When he said my son fell alot and that he wanted to challenge him I thought but have you observed a regular session of his. In any case at least the man/owner called regardless of how short and frank he was as it felt forced or against his will honesty but I wont dwell on it anymore. I expressed my expectations and concerns. My little ones arm is sore to the touch but the swelling is gone and the bruising that remains will hopefully be gone in a couple of days. Because of my sons mentality I cant help but to be concerned when he has hurt himself outside of my presence and advocate for him. He is unable to do so for himself. I have and now life goes on….
Hello, how is everyone doing? Im doing okay 👌 The heat is getting to me but more than that the random irritations of life. When unexpected and unfair events occur it can get anyone upset and does intially bother me but then I remember that there is so much more to life and way more good people in my corner than bad. That wheter I get the chance to be around them or not just the thought of them or their encouraging words make me forget all the irritations this life has to offer. Its so easy to feel down and out. Personal issues, community and global issues…urgh! Well, I did a pick me upper move and “beat” my face aka applied a heavy amount of make up and looked flawless and cute and did not take one pic -___-. Its irrelevant on the grander scale of things I know but Im just saying for the record that I loath myself when I do such good make up jobs and dont document them! What was I thinking…..oh yea, it was hot and I was surprised I was not melting. My LO had gotten my attention before I snapped a pic when done and I totally got in mama bear mode. Forgetting all about myself. No one talks about that delicate balance lol. Some forget all about the upkeep of themselves after motherhood and I was guilty of that the first two years. I had acne gallore (shivers) and shaved off all my hair for many reasons with one being it made my life easier. I have pics to prove it….but I’d rather share some other time lol. I said all the above to say to the mother’s reading this. Love your LO’s and dont forget about you. If you do I totally understand and I TOTALLY RESPECT THAT over a mom or dad that neglects their child (ren) to live their lives. Once you create another life it is no longer about you. Some inherit the instincts to nurse and protect their babies and others dont. I dont know if therapy should be immediate after child birth or not but it sure wouldn’t hurt today. Today’s world is so fast paced and hectic. Everyone is just trying to make a living and sample what it means to REALLY live. I’ll shut up now….I just felt like typing to you guys who may come across my blog. I felt like sharing what was on my mind. Hopefully, I dont forget to snap a pic of my little achievements that make me happy. Its always the little things. Speaking about little things! One of my snack subscription boxes should arrive today! I recieved my Ipsy bag yesterday but it so didn’t excite me. Even with the freebies I was able to add on with my points. Exhale, I’ll share pics of what I got later. Nothing thrilling this month just very small samples or products. If I get one more eyeshadow brush I’am going to SCREAM! 😨😨😨
I recieved the July 2016 Eggdrop box and thought it was an error and contacted the company to inform them of such. Yea yea Im a “goody two shoes” lol. I cannot lie and say I was not happy to get it because it was full of Shopkin items my LO loves! But I was not charged for this box as I had unsubscribed the month before so it didn’t sit well with me and I contacted them. An error was made. But at least I was not incorrectly billed after unsubscribing. It’s great that sort of error did not occur! So we got an eggdrop box on the house it seems and I still recommend them for your LO’s who may like tsum tsum, shopkins, Marvel, dinosaurs and other miniature figure mystery bags. You can check out an earlier post I have up to learn more about the company.
