Enough is Enough.

Hola, welcome back to my blog. Long time since I have talked about something personal about my life. I just think that it's time to let my thoughts to be heard not just to think to myself, "oh yeah, I need to do this or I need to fix that." So here I go.
For a really long time, I have been babysitting my family's children. Don't get me wrong. I really, really love my 13 nephews and nieces. I just realized that I have lost myself throughout the two years that have gone by since I graduated from high school. From the moment I was supposed to start college was a starting point of babysitting job, from early mornings to very late nights, and there wasn't time to actually think of myself. Yes, I do get pay and I do buy things for myself but every now and then, my family would always ask me of what will I do with my life. They will ask, "Don't you want to go to college?", "Why won't you get a job?", "Why not save money for a new car to travel far and wide?", and "How come you don't have a boyfriend?". So I'm letting my feelings flow through my fingers on this keyboard. First, I do want to go to college, I want a future for myself so I can help provide for my family, my cats, and be able to help Deaf communities throughout my home state. It's hard, now that two years have gone by, I haven't really remember what I have been taught throughout the high school career. Don't worry, I'm thankful my sister will help pay for my CNA classes. I will sign up on November 7th and will start in December. Plus, it is only a month long session. Here in my town, being a CNA and Nurse are the most popular jobs because you get pay well depends who the company the person is working for. To me, I don't care about the money, I just want to love my job and being able to be good at it no matter if I am Deaf. Secondly, it is HARD to find a job that will accepts me for who I am which means I am DEAF as in DISABLE to managers, supervisors, employers, superintendents, etc. I am hard working, I really am. I love to help people and  I love to be able to direct them with confidence. I just hate the fact when they ask me for an interview, I comply, and the day of the interview, we would talk then THE question pops up. "Do you have anything that I should be aware of or need to know?" I say yes, and I would say I am Deaf. Right then and there, "Oh you are Deaf? Oh wow. I didn't know that. I never expect you to be a Deaf person." That would abruptly ends the interview. No "When can you start?" or "I am sorry I cannot hire you right now." It would always be a "It was nice meeting you and have a nice day." People do not know but that will always hurt a person's feelings and pride especially a person with a "DISABILITY". I hate that. I hate feeling weak and unemployed because I am Deaf. In fact, just recently, I applied for medicaid here in my town and I was DENIED. I don't know why. On the paper, it said that I was not over the age 65, I do not have any disability that requires home care, nor do I have any children. The reason I wanted medicaid was to get myself a single hearing aid for my right ear. It is so expensive to buy a hearing aid. Just one cost over $1000! Just being a girl is already high-maintenance. Haha! Third, I do really need a car. I so badly want to travel. I want to see Georgia and Texas again. I miss those bright city lights. The loud car honks and people buzzing around like bees, always in and out of buildings. Too bad, I don't have a job, yet! Last but not least, the boyfriend drama. I don't even have a boyfriend and my family is already fussing over it!! Hahaha! They keep hassling at me wanting me to have a life with someone that I would love and cherish. I mean, I do want someone special in my life but here in my town, the guys are not gentlemen. Trust me on that. There are always drug busts on the left and right everywhere. Three times in my neighborhood!! See what I am trying to say?! Not only that, my city is actually one of the highest cities to have STDs!!! Nah, bruh. PASS!! I don't trust the men here in my town no matter what their nationality, body shape, personality, nor even disability. Yes, ladies and gentlemen. Trust have to be earn!! Seriously though. Now you see a bit into my life. I hope nothing scares y'all yet! Haha! I also hope you enjoy reading my post as well. I just needed to do something with my thoughts. I cannot keep them inside anymore. After all, that are what blogs are for?! Right?! Haha! Well, thank you sooo much for reading and I guess I will see y'all next time!! Bye!!!!

SpookyEyes Review and Halloween Tutorial!


Disclosure: I received the product complimentary of SpookyEyes for a review. However, my opinions and thoughts are 100% mine.
Hi! Welcome back to my blog! It is been awhile since I last posted so I apologize for that. I hope September was good for all of you. Fortunately, the month, October is officially here! Wow, time do fly by fast, right?! Haha. So that means fun activities to do all month because Halloween is officially coming! Theater plays, theme parties, trick-or-treating, and much more are many reasons to dress up as a haunting character. Therefore, I’ll help you to stand out in the crowd of ghouls, ghosts, witches, vampires, zombies, and more with the help of SpookyEyes! How? Well, SpookyEyes have sent me a pair of contact lenses for a review and I’m letting you all hear what I say about this cool product and company! Enjoy or die…… Haha! Just kidding!


The pair I received are the Red Vampire Contact Lenses. They are very vibrant in color! It is so red that it creep my family out within a glance! Haha. Well, I’m happy to say that the lenses are the right size for my pupils. Not too big nor small. Also, I like the fact it doesn’t scratch my eyes throughout the day and without have to freshen up with an eye dropper. So far, so good! Although, this company do not do prescription contact lenses, they are still affordable! It is only $28.95 for this pair! Let’s see. The packaging is normal. It is stored in a plastic container with a foil peel-off. Each contain one contact lens. Further ado to their nice website is the variety of colors and designs to choose from! In fact, I have been eyeing a few selections to use for scarecrow and zombie costumes. Creepy, huh? Haha. So yes, I’m loving this company, and another good thing about them is their quick, free delivery! It takes about five to seven days for your parcel with your contact lenses stored inside to arrive. Meaning you can have a full and complete costume with your neat SpookyEyes before Halloween arrives! What else not to love about this company? Go on and look around on the website! I guarantee you that you are bound to find a pair you will really like! Can’t figure out on what you want to be for this Halloween? Let me help you! Down below is a Halloween tutorial that I created with my red vampire contact lenses. Please check it out and hope it inspire you on what you want to be! Enjoy!


Alright, that is pretty much sums up about my review on SpookyEyes. I hope it helps you and let me know what you think of my Halloween tutorial. Well, thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a spook-tacular day! See you next time! Bye!

Join #ThePussyCatRiot Movement!


Hey everyone! As you all know or if you are new to my blog that I am a Cat Lady! I have a LONGGGGG history of cats! Haha! Now, I have one cat named Fluffy Boy! Although, that is not the point of this post! Haha Let's go ahead and get started!

Fluffy Boy
 So I saw an opportunity on a website as a cat owner to do something for cats in general and citizens in other countries! It is to help lift internet censorship! Many countries nowadays have strict policy of being on internet that restricts millions of people of knowledge and wait for it.... Cats!! I know what you're thinking.... Cats?? Really? Haha. Yes, People are not even allowed to go on Facebook, Youtube, and more because there are hundreds of thousands of cats all around the internet. Plus, these tough controls of governments around the countries are not joking. Which make this movement even more important! Therefore, I ask you and your cat(s) to join the movement and help populate the internet with images and videos of cats whether they're yours, a friend's, or even a neighbor's cat, symbolising the stand against cyber censorship and those who help it. Further Ado, you see five cats down below?
 These five cats in fact, are the world's most famous and the current cats of the Internet. 
They're all so cute, right?!
There are many ways you can help get the word out. 
  • Make memes of these cute, furry friends from Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, and Facebook! 
  • Draw a legit picture of all cats fighting against these feline haters. 
  • Make an awesome video on Youtube, Vimeo, Instavideo, or anywhere else of you and your cat(s) opposing the censorship!
  • Make yummy treats for cat(s) and show it around your social networks to let others know you're in the movement! 
As you do your great support to the campaign, don't forget to hashtag #ThePussyCatRiot! 
So yes, now you know a bit of this great movement and if you want to help to give this awareness a little more shoutout then go ahead follow them on social network!
