My Hardest Assignment Yet

So for the most part school has been fairly easy for me (aside from math, but that is a whole other can of worms). My computer classes have been a cake walk, but that is probably because I have spent so many years already learning these things of my own volition. My first English class also was not difficult for me as I first discovered my love of writing as an 11 year old and that love has only grown since then. However, this semester I am taking English composition business communication. This class has proved to be a little more difficult than I first anticipated. My overall project for the course is to write a business proposal. Upon receiving the assignment and reading the instructions, I felt confused  and was having trouble even getting started with it. More than likely because, I did not even have a basic example of what exactly a business proposal should look like. I ended up purchasing “Writing business bids & proposals for dummies” just to try and get a clearer picture about what I had to do. After reading though it, I was still feeling confused so I decided to go on the hunt for school resources that might help me.

I found that Cincinnati State offers services with eTutoring.org and today I had, what I consider, a productive meeting with a writing coach. And while I am still a bit nervous about the project itself I do feel a bit more prepared to take on the project. We ran thought some basic ideas about what kind of proposal I would write and came up with some topics that I can research to use within the report. I’ll probably utilize the writing coach services again as I found it to be immensely helpful. Hopefully by the time I am finished I will have a decent paper to turn in.

There just aren’t enough hours in the day for everything I want to accomplish. Between school work, house work and hobbies I feel like I never have enough time.

The other day I was doing some cleaning and came across some old Ubuntu & Kubuntu Disks. I can’t bring myself to throw them away since, they no longer do the disks and it reminds me of when I first discovered the world of Linux.

So I have awesome news, In June when I was diagnosed With Type II diabetes My A1C levels were at 10.5 and the doctor prescribed metformin as well as insulin, I never started on either one. Instead based on the book The diabetes code by Dr. Jason Fung, I went back on the Keto diet and implemented intermittent fasting. Yesterday I went back to the doctor and my A1C was 6.9. I highly recommend both of Dr. Fung’s books, they are life changing!

Enjoying a Week off School & Playing WOW

So I’m between semesters at the moment. Summer just ended, and fall starts next Monday. Lucky for me since the World of Warcraft’s Battle for Azeroth expansion just lunched. That means I can spend some time enjoying the game. Mark has been busy enjoying an event in Overwatch, so it’s just me. I had three Max level characters during legion, all alliance, a mage, warlock and druid. I only level my mage with Mark so I’ve been focusing on my Warlock. I haven’t started BFA with my druid yet.

Just the other day I was fishing in Boralus, and managed to fish up a Great Sea Ray, which in turn gave me the achievement We’re Going to Need More Saddles. It wasn’t necessarily something I was actively working but I’m happy about it none-the-less, the reward for getting that achievement was the Jade Pandaren Kite String Mount. Then not more then 10 minutes later, I fished up another Great Sea Ray which I decided to send to Mark.  I do enjoy fishing, so if I get another I’ll be posting it on the Auction hall.

All in all it’s shaping up to be a pretty relaxing week with some enjoyable game time.

Type 2 Diabetes

I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes 2 months ago, the insulin I was prescribed, would have cost me almost $500.00, so I didn’t buy it. I also didn’t start on metformin. Instead after reading the Diabetes Code by Dr. Jason Fung I started back up On the Keto Diet along with Intermittent fasting. In the beginning my blood sugar averaged around 190mg as of today I’m averaging around 140mg and am seeing dips down into the 120mg range. I don’t see the point of trying shove more “sugar” (insulin) into my body when my body is already rejecting it. I’m feeling pretty positive about this change.

So What Happens Next?

So after all the Brown immigrants are deported, and denaturalized, will they come for my husband and/or mother in law next? I’m genuinely afraid of where all this hate is taking us. Right now they are only going after brown immigrants, but they are doing so at all levels. Discharging them from the military, revoking citizenship and taking children from their parents.

What happens when all that is accomplished? Who will they want us to hate next?
