2018 New Year, New Beginnings

It's already 2018 which means I've been blogging for 8 years as of the end of January. I apologize to my readers, if there are any left, for not updating as much as I should. Between working 6 days a week, dealing with problems at work, being a mom, sister, daughter and friend it feels as if there isn't enough time for everything and my blog has taken a back seat right now. As we all know the blogging scene has all but disappeared, people who were once blogging have traded in their thoughts for pictures and trying to be the next fashionista via IG and Snapchat

I use both of those but I'm still not showing every move that I make. Social media is a cut throat world and I see those that succeed if that's what you want to call it and those that are abused by trolls, I would rather watch from the side lines than be a victim. I still don't understand how youngsters look up to social media people, most of them have not achieved anything but acting like they are so happy and buying up ugly "couture" items that make the average person sell their soul just to have what they display.

What an ugly place the world has become, I'm always thankful I grew up before internet, cell phones and social media. I lived by my mom's words "be back by dark" and if I wasn't I could hear her whistle for me a mile away and would run home as fast as I could. We would save up quarters for ice cream and dimes and nickles to make calls from the pay phone.

I often wonder if anyone even reads what I post, does anyone actually care? I do miss getting invitations to events but now those go out to the 'popular' Arabs on social media. This is a new year and I feel some changes coming on that will give me more time to write even if it's only my mom who reads my blog.

For those who continue reading my random posts I thank you and I hope to more blogging, volunteering and general things I like with the normal working hours I will have.

Stay tuned.......
