Finding friends in the unlikeliest of places

From an early age, you are drawn to a certain bunch of people who usually stay life-long friends. Even when you graduate from high school, you all manage to keep in touch. Well, for most people I’d like to think this to be true. And for the most part it is. But for me,,, I’ve had my disappointments time and time again.

To say that I have trust issues is putting it mildly.  I’ve been so many people’s scapegoat  for their own misfortunes instead of owning up to their faults just to make themselves look like angels in their family’s eyes, that they didn’t care how it would make me look to those who knew us.  Mind you, only one friend ever came forward and apologized to me.  I’ll never get that from the other.

Then there was that website I used to volunteer write for.  Longest 2 years of my life.  Sometimes I feel that I wasted my time on there, but then I wouldn’t have found out that I can write.  And write well.  Being dyslexic was hard during my school days.  And sometimes it still is.  Diagnosing myself with the problem at age 14 was the biggest light bulb moment of my life.  I no longer felt stupid.  That there was a reason for a lot of things.

I actually wrote and published my first ever book.  And yes,,  to those of you who have a copy of it,, I’m still working on the sequel.  LOL.  It’s something I thought I’d never ever do.  But with the love and support of awesome friends, I done it!!

Only one friend growing up, that knew me very well, was there to support me.  She knows who she is.  There’s no words I can write to let her know how much I appreciated her standing by my side.  OK, well, not literally standing next to me,, that’s impossible as she’s on the mainland, LOL.  But you get my point. 🙂

All the other friends are those I met later in life, and most of them are online friends.  People I’ve never met, and may never get to meet in person either, but I know they’ve been there for me every step of the way.

And even like the past, being drawn to certain people, it does happen again.  But this time it has a different feeling.  It’s doesn’t feel like those who are only pretending to be your friend, this time it’s with people who genuinely care.

I’ve made friends with the most unlikeliest of people thanks to Facebook (and later on Twitter).  We’ve cried together, laughed together, even laughed until we cried together. They are the friendships that I’ll hold dear.

So being one of the biggest Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit geek out there,, I’ll leave you with this quote from Bilbo.  “I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.” 

Until next time.

This, That, and Everything in between.

Wow.  This is a record.  Writing up another post after doing one yesterday.  Better write that on the calendar, LOL.

Though, I was thinking last night (yes I know,, BAD idea 🙂 ), of changing the tagline on this site to “The Ramblings of a… “.

But of what?

“Stay at home mom”?  Nah.  Doesn’t sound too interesting.

“Wacky Writer”?  Hmmm, maybe.

“Nerdy Noob”?  *facepalm*

I seem to have lost my creativity in coming up with something that seems so simple.  So I’m asking you, my readers, to come up with a catchy tagline to go under my name for this blog site.

So to help you guys and gals out, here’s some tidbits about me.

I love sci-fi (Stargate, all 3), Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit Trilogies (especially Kili 😉 )

I love drama as well, NCIS (Love Gibbs), 19Two (awesome Canadian show) and Castle (I assume it would fall into this category).

I love BBC shows.  Mrs. Brown’s Boys (OMG it’s hilarious), and my new favorite, Poldark (not sure why, 😉 LOL.

Mind you if you follow me on twitter, you can figure out pretty quickly the type of person I am.  I love meeting and chatting (or tweeting) with people.

I’m not religious (not sure where I really stand on that topic), which seems to be taking me on some sort of journey for that answer.

If there’s anything else you wanna know about me,, pop me a tweet and I’ll answer as best I can.  If you don’t have twitter,, then post your questions here and I’ll answer there as well.

Anyway,, I have to get going.  Housework won’t get done themselves.  Though I wish it did. LOL.

Until next time,

K ❤ .

Countdown begins…

Actually the countdown has begun a few months ago,,, my countdown to the 3rd and final movie from The Hobbit trilogy – The Battle of the Five Armies.  I’m so excited too.  And a little sad.  Not looking forward to what happens in the end.  And no,, I wouldn’t have known what to watch out for if I didn’t stumble across the spoiler from a commenter for a clip on YouTube.  Gee, thanks a lot.  Have I even read the books???  No.  I only knew the movies.  Well, that’s a lie,, I knew about the books,, I just never read them PRIOR to watching any of the films.

Do I have the books?  Yes.

Have I read them since THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy?  Nope.

Will I read them?  Well duh.  But finding time to read the books and trying to write my own is proving to be quite the challenge.

Albeit, playing games on facebook is not helping either.  Which is why I’ve made a deal with myself that as of January 1st, I’m going to concentrate more on the writing, and less to online stuff.

Will I still be blogging???  Yes.  Of course I will.  In fact, if you liked my Facebook Author Page, all my posts I write in here will be sent there.  Unless you signed up for an email alert.  Otherwise, I’ll be pretty much disappeared from the online scene.

If I want people to take me seriously as a writer, I need to take this step to make my main goal a reality.  What is that you ask?  I want to write a best seller.  Something that may one day be produced into a movie.  That would be my ultimate dream come true.

Although, I have yet to announce it on Facebook or Twitter for that matter.  But I know my friends will understand.  They have been my biggest supporters in this endeavour.  And for that I’ll always be truly grateful to each and every one of them.  ❤ ❤ ❤

Until next time.
