2020 Blogging Goal Recap

 Well, my goal this year was to make a total of 100k views however I didn't make it. I'm not saying it's because my blogging skills are lacking or because nobody liked what I posted. I frankly, didnt put enough effort in to make my goal. I truly believe had I posted more stuff, maybe people would have come around more. Who knows? 

With that, I want to say, I'm okay that I didn't make my goal, I was only 20,000 views away. That's not that bad. Maybe in the next year I'll make 100,000 views. Heck, maybe I'll make 200,000. My ultimate goal would be to reach more, but in all the time I've owned my blog I know I don't really have a following. I more have people who stumble across my page and take a look.

For that, I thank you. You internet dwellers, you people who are bored and look up stuff I happen to write on. Bless you. I found out recently I have a lot of people who read from other countries. That is SUPER COOL. So, this is a shoutout to you.

Top 10 Inspiring Quotes for Students

Students every day are being told that they can be anything that they want to be as long as they put their mind to it and succeed, but the truth is every person has that quality already in them even without being told. While some students are extremely motivated to do everything when it comes to schoolwork or chores in their life, some students can use a slight bit more motivation. What a better way to motivate then decorating a classroom with motivational quotes for students to learn or live by?

While there are many quotes that have a great meaning, there are also some motivational quotes that will get students really thinking. Included below are ten motivational quotes to get your students going, and get their minds thinking.

Benjamin E. Mays – “The tragedy in life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy in life is having no goal to reach.”

Louis Aragon – “Your imagination, my dear fellow, is worth more than you imagine.”
“It always seems impossible until its done.” -Nelson Mandela

Lydia M. Child - "Belief in oneself is one of the most important bricks in building any successful venture."

From After School Africa:

Alexander Graham Bell – “Study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing; and dream while others are wishing.”

Allan Bloom – “No man can teach another self-knowledge. He can only lead him or her up to self-discovery – the source of truth.”

William Shakespeare – “  Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.”
From Minimal Student

Renee Descartes – “I think, therefore I am.”

Goethe - “Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”

Henry L. Doherty  - “Be a student as long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life”.

Each of these quotes is designed to inspire and get students thinking. Decorate your entire classroom with these quotes and students will be able to reflect on them daily and be reminded to stay motivated.

10 Of The Best Netflix Movies Right Now

As we all know, there are plenty of movies to watch on Netflix. The amount of films can feel never ending between all the genres. Here I've listed a total of 10 movies that are hot on Netflix right now. These movies can almost always be found on Netflix throughout the year. If for some reason they're no longer available, still consider watching these films. There are so many streaming services available, there should be no hardships finding these to watch. 

Let's get started with the list, shall we? 

Top 10 Netflix Movies to Watch

 The Social Dilemma

This movie doesn't only give us a disturbing look into how much technology and social media affects our every day lives, but it hits home something fierce. Viewers will find themselves relating to Ben more than they assumed. Every day we use our phone, internet, e-mail, and social medias. Do you use them a lot, or simply a little bit? Actual workers and former employees of some of the top networking sites give their opinions and stories of how the extreme world has affected them. This movie is well worth the watch.

Not today, buddy.

Today is one of those days. I'm here at home and I've been awake since 6 a.m. The truth of it is, I'm tired of being awake and lively. I'm not depressed, nor am I feeling suicidal. It's one of those days where you simply want to exist, without existing. I know I can't be the only one who has days like this. It's normal... Well, relatively normal. I imagine for some this could be a cry for help, but to me it's one of those days where I need to rant, and feel like I can. Without anyone judging, or wondering what's wrong. Whatever, you can call me Karen. Idgaf.

There's nothing really going on that I can talk about. Covid-19 has me in the same place as I was before. Covid & Me, we go back to the beginning of March. I'm still hanging around the house with relatively nowhere to go. Some of the places I enjoyed are slowly opening again, but I have not enough faith in my town, that we won't have some sort of issues with Covid-19 making a vengeance. After all, look at the current President. He's got Covid and he's going out and about in a car, greeting people! Bro, get in the hospital, don't be a clown. 

I'm so tired of being at home. I'm tired of not working, but I low key don't want a job. Can I even do a job in a mask? Probably not. I can barely wear a mask for an hour in the grocery store without feeling overheated. Hey now, I'm a little overweight still, so I'm out of shape. Nothing medically wrong with me to say I can't. I'm saying I don't like to, I prefer not to have to. So I don't have a job. Not having a job adds to me stress level like you wouldn't believe.  Yes, I have unemployment, but that's not forever, and I will get a job at some point. I'll have to.

I'm just tired. I'm tired of being tired. I'm tired of feeling tired. I'm tired of feeling like no matter what I do, it's not enough or I'm not. Maybe it is a little bit of depression. I read that happens to people right now. That they're feeling helpless and a case of FOMO. I don't really have FOMO too much, but I definitely feel helpless. 

I'm 35 in 8 days. I have nothing to show for it.

No college degree.

No job.

No kids. 

No marriage.


Guess, that's another day's problem. Who really needs that sort of stability in life? I don't. Ha. Whatever. I'm done typing for now. I have a whole upstairs to clean. I can't think about this bologna right now.
