Goodbye

Sad face

I am sorry that I have not been posting much to this blog, I started three other blogs on more specific topics, All Things Chocolate is  about chocolate and desserts:

https://chocklutworld.wordpress.com

The Lemon Life,  about turning life’s lemons into lemonade:

https://lamonaide.wordpress.com

and The Virtual Virtuoso, my business blog where I write about marketing, entrepreneurship, and small business related topics.

These blogs take a lot of my time, so I am going to delete this blog. I am going to be moving several of my posts to either The Lemon Life, or The Virtual Virtuoso, and reposting them there. I hope you will follow one of those; happy reading!

Joining the Conversation, Conclusion

So here is the end of the matter: abortion wrong, Jesus right. Murder evil, God good. Don’t like that? Sorry, it is the truth, I did not write the book on it, and I make no apologies. Everyone has the right to believe what they want, as long as what they believe does not result in them taking the life of another human being.

To answer some previous points that were brought up, yes, an acorn is an oak tree; if it originally came from an oak tree, that it can’t be any other kind of tree. Ditto for a chicken egg; if an egg comes from a chicken, it is not going to hatch as an ostrich or a penquin.

But if you want to believe differently, go right ahead. The beauty of living here in America is that people can still believe what they want to believe without losing their lives for it. At least in  theory, and I don’t know how long that freedom will last, we seem to be losing it fast.

As Forest Gump would say, “That’s all I’ve got to say about that.”

New Blogs

I’m making some changes to my blog: I will be posting blogs about chocolate here:

http://chocklutworld.wordpress.com/

Lemon Life blogs will be here:

http://lamonaide.wordpress.com/

I will keep writing about my college experiences at this blog site. I figured this way it will be easier for people to find only the content that interests them. Oh, I almost forgot…The Self Employment Chronicles will now be posted here:

The Lemon Life

The idea for this started with a comment I made on my Facebook page:

“When life hands you lemons…”

I didn’t finish it, because everyone knows the second part; “make lemonade.”

I made this comment on my Facebook after finding out I did not pass one of my classes, and I would have to go to college for one more semester in order to finish my degree. I decided to add a couple of classes toward a second degree, to make in more worth my while, since I had to be there anyway. That was how I planned to make lemonade out of the lemon I was handed.

A few weeks later, a good friend of mine, inspired by my post, gave me a graduation gift (I was able to walk across the stage in the ceremony on May 19, I just can’t get my diploma yet) which included a lemon. I loved it! I put it in my freezer, where it stayed for about two weeks.

I’m going through a season of uncertainty right now; I do not have a job yet, and I am getting concerned about that. My husband and I are surviving on unemployment, and a student loan, which is now dwindling fast.

So how did I make lemonade with these ingredients? I’ll tell you later.

First, a few weeks ago, after a tiring day, I decided to make some iced tea. I boil it, so it takes about twenty-four hours, but I figured it would be a nice treat for the next day; I love ice-cold tea. So I started making it, then I remembered that lemon, in my freezer. I thought, ‘that will go good in iced tea.’ I pulled it out. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to cut it up while it was still frozen, but surprisingly, it wasn’t hard to cut.

All of this time, I was thinking about lemons, and making lemonade, when all of a sudden, I had an idea.

‘Why not blog about how people have overcome difficult situations—in other words—made lemonade?’ And “Lemon Life” was born. Lemon Life is where I will write about true inspirational stories: my own and other people’s.

Right now, I have the time, because I am not working yet. So that’s how I’m making lemonade with the ingredients I have been given.  

And this has been my first inspiring story! Thank you for reading it. Oh, I almost forgot—the iced tea turned out great! About the picture—I don’t like my smile, so I borrowed Julia Roberts’s. I realize the picture doesn’t look professional, but since I can’t afford fancy photo editing software, I did the best I good with the Paint program on my computer.
