Always Advancing

These last few weeks have been a crazy time for many of us who invest in cryptocurrency. I decided to invest some of my income tax money into my Robinhood acct, and it paid off. So let me start with the updates!!

I am feeling spectacular since my weight is going back down. I have started back mowing the lawn! Yes, I can do the yard again because my knee doesn’t hurt anymore. I have managed to stay active, and I started back playing ARK. I purchased my server. It funny, I’m jumping in bed like a little kid when I lay down at night because I can!!!! So, yes, I am feeling good! Activity is the key, stay active, and you will stay young.

Now, on the topic of cryptocurrency!! I am trying to get my daughter into it because I feel like we are standing on the edge of something earthshattering; when it comes to our financial future. I sent her some money and told her to invest it in crypto. At this point, I do not invest large sums of money because I am conservative with my money.

I have over 15k shares of Dogecoin which means if it goes up, I will make money. If Dogecoin were to hit at least 50 bucks, I would have over half a million dollars. So, I am no financial advisor, but if investing 1200 dollars gives me a chance to get almost half a million bucks at 50 dollars per coin, I am not selling. If there is even a grain of a shot, I want to explore it. My dream would be to see Dogecoin reach about 100 bucks per coin because it would make me a millionaire. Right now, I am just patiently waiting and hoping that just maybe 1200 dollars turned out to be the start of something mind-blowing.

I started with 1200 invested in Doge and now I quadrupled that! So, I am a happy little camper! So, that’s me in a nutshell! I am always trying to better myself inside and out. We should be always be in the habit of doing things that produce positive outcomes for us and those around us. Please understand that I am only telling you what’s going on in my world, not insisting that you follow my path. Investing is tricky and if you want to do it, find someone educated in cryptocurrency to give you the whole story.

Added Benefits Of Remote Learning that some of us never considered.

My husband and I have a rule when it comes to explaining coursework to our children. The general rule of thumb is that I help with anything that isn’t math-related! When I was in college, I took math classes that would pretty much ensure the completion of my degrees, and when it came to math, I would take the lesser of the evils.

My husband explaining a problem to our daughter.

He, on the other hand, would take high-level math courses, but I put him to shame with my many science classes. So, here we are explaining the academics that we learned in college to our children to help them build better understandings of their coursework.

I guess it might be considered the uncovered gem in remote learning. While the teachers do a great job preparing and sending the information for the children, it doesn’t necessarily come with the same level of understanding that they would get in a classroom. So, at the end of the day, we find ourselves having to explain new vocabulary and other questions.

We also get those random questions that stink of information that belongs in unread paragraphs, and when we come across those, we simply inform our children to go back to their initial readings!!! Helping is one thing, but doing their work is not an option!

American/Korean Artist Making A Strong New COmeback Jessi!!!!

If you have been following the latest in K-pop groups you have noticed that some of the artist coming from the K-pop scene are serious contenders in talent. While a lot of American artist seem to be skilled at either rapping or singing, many of the Korean artist are skilled at both forms of art. Take one of my favorites Jessi for example! She is a Korean/American female artist who actually comes from New Jersey. She moved to Korea as a teen and has become one of their top female solo artist.

Jessi has managed to stay valid in a country that pretty much likes to discourage women from showing their sexuality. In many K-pop videos women are dressed up to model almost a perfect dream of what a woman should be. However, Jessi pushes upwards with her unique style and unrelenting talent. She is gritty, beautiful, soulful and a truly awesome female rap artist.

In her newest song, she reminds you just how multi-talented she is and her presence as always commands attention with sounds that pop and stress the importance of being true to self. In many ways Jessi would belong in the K-pop hip hop group because she is just as talented as a rapper as she is a singer. Her song Drip which is entirely in English cased some heads to turn when commentators stated that she was being culturally insensitive when she compared her diamonds like blue Crips. Yet, many people forget she is from Jersey and some do not realize that Korea also has Crips and Bloods. So here’s my girl and her new song.

Jackson Wang is also one of those multi-talented artist. He is Chinese and is also a singer in the K-pop group GOT7.

Have a great weekend! To my readers in India, what are some names of Indian artist? I would love to get to know some new Bollywood.

Three Years Ago Seems Like Forever

Do you remember what you were doing three years ago? I was getting used to my new surroundings and trying to mend my relationship with my children. We were talking about border security, health care, and a healthy economy. Then, out of nowhere COVID-19 came and changed the conversation.

It changed the way we celebrated life, mourned death and prepared for the afterlife in many ways. The old conversations no longer made any sense. The arguments over border security were pushed to the back of the room because we had a new problem. We had an enemy so lethal that it would push into our living rooms and tear at the very heart of America.

COVID-19 changed the way we lived, loved and hated one another. It taught us that we often thrive and decline as one. We are stronger together and that holds true from the entire country.Just as family members who hadn’t spoken in years rushed to call each other and ask about their estranged member’s well-being, we must act in a similar manner towards each other.

I remind you again to pick up your phones and reach out to those you love. We might not know what tomorrow brings, but we know what this second can gift. We are together in this and married to this situation for better or worse. The only thing we can do at this point is build a protective wall around those we love. That protective wall includes sensible thinking and a protective spirit for our brothers and sisters.
