I’ve been away and for good reason I promise.
I have recently gotten surgery and it affected me being awake and active in life, so there was that. Also, as I will always remind you faithful reader, I am very bad at this. I am trying to get better and it is a struggle.
So many things to cover and so little words to do it in:
Trump’s wife and election: Issues with spousal abuse, Trump actually winning and affects to us everywhere, and my personal thoughts on the situation.
So, obviously there has been a crazy amount of stuff going on with Trump now in office. Many people are happy, but in my opinion (and I will always mark this as MY OPINION not to be pushed on anyone else) many more people are upset by it. Many things will change as they already have. I feel that this won’t be for the positive for our nation, but I do hope for the positive. First I want to cover what everyone on the pop culture circuit is covering, Melina Trump. She was posted on twitter with videos and pictures of her at the inauguration Ceremony and how Trump ignores her, seemingly makes her feel sad and left out, and in the video how he seemingly says something to her that makes her go from all smiles to all frowns real quick.
This is a possible great example of how everything may not be as great on the inside as it looks on the outside to others. Or this could just be a few moments in time that which the couple, who is under extreme stress conditionally, get on each others nerves, more so Trump to Melina as the vice versa. Unless any of us are in the relationship and hear everything that has been said and done then we should just butt out technically. If this is a serious situation spousal abuse mentally, emotional, or otherwise then close family and friends should be the ones helping and picking it apart. The worst thing to do is put a survivor of such circumstances under more duress by making them feel they are under a microscope, that can draw that person more to the abuser and away from help quicker than helping the situation. If this is just a lovers quarrel then thats what it is and we the people are speculating too much.
I believe the #FreeMelina tweets should stop and allow for professionals to help if the posting party is that worried. Now, I do feel badly for Melina Trump, she is getting a shit-end-of-the-stick situation right now. She will be scrutinized for what she has done in the past, as any celebrity would, but she never asked to be the first lady. She is just going along supporting her husbands dream, as what is expected of her by Trump’s sexist ideals. She did marry into it and should know what she would get out of it, but there is no way she could have predicted this magnitude of being put on blast by the nation. I feel bad for her yes, but I do not feel bad for saying that she isn’t a super strong independent woman who should lead this nation as the first lady as we have seen in the past and particularly for these past eight years.
Now, on to Trump. I am worried for my Country. Genuinely I am. I am trying to keep an open mind and heart to hoping for the best, but things already look grim for myself and my equal Millenials. He is already trying to change the Affordable Care Act, and I feel many don’t quite grasp what this could do. The real winners if this goes through are the insurance companies. The fact of the matter is, Trump is gonna screw us royally if he gets rid of the ACA without proper compensation to what we could lose. This is based on the bill that has been trying to be passed every year by the GOP, and the only reason it hasn’t gone away was Obama vetoing it. Trump won’t veto it most likely, and that is bad news for all of us, but mainly Gen X and us Millennials. Women everywhere will be affected by the increase of healthcare prices to them alone, as well as the prices for birth control going back to being high. This is negative for men as well for the reason that WOMEN CAN’T GET BIRTH-CONTROL EASILY ANYMORE, and baby possibilities could rise in your near future. This affects people of Obama Care and REGULAR INSURANCE COMPANIES. Including ones provided by your workplace for your family. The ACA made the insurance companies change their policies and they were losing more because of it, thats why they want it repealed. This doesn’t help your wallet it hurts it more all throughout the nation. So for those of you who thought this was so great of a choice in the election, thanks for fucking up all of us, congratulations you played yourself. Don’t believe me even read it here for more in depth info.
Now that is only one reason I hate this Trump in office thing, but I digress. I am going to move onto other topics now.
New ETSY account
I am now opening my own ETSY store called GenuineJennCreations. This is what I created on the store page rather than make you read it when you get there:
This is something I just started as a young girl at the age of 12 as personal gifts for loved ones. I really wanted to make something special when my mom would tell me “make something from the heart” as opposed to buying something. I write poetry that varies depending on the situation I would write for. Thus each is unique and nothing like its predecessors. These works and words are my heart and mind on paper.
Finally, I had enough of people telling me I was good enough to sell and begging to make them one, so I took their advice 10 years later and now here I am. I hope you like what you see, depending on how well this goes I will be posting a lot more.
A lot of time and dedication went into these words and paintings, I appreciate the support I get when making these single-handed. I will be looking to create “Made to Order” pieces very soon, and those will allow for you to give me a description of your special day, someone, etc. and I will make it based off of that personal situation from your heart to their walls.
So please visit, and buy! Or at least Favorite and let me know what you think!!
Surgery: recovery, info, and time spent now
I had surgery on my shoulder from over use, it isn’t a great big deal, but even now I am in pain typing. Ive been with my boyfriends sister all this week and its been fun and wonderful. My mom and Sister even came down to see me and it was fun! I am really appreciating all the help I am receiving and I look forward to having a bright and shiny new functioning shoulder. My negative news is how I have to get my other shoulder done soon as well. And after that possibly my knees. Basically Im a lot a little fucked up. But I’m doing good so fear not!!
Posts: Writing Poems and Stories and the Pursuit of Posting
I will be posting some stories on here more often and hopefully that will motivate me to write more. This goes the same for my poetry and If you like them maybe send me the one and I’ll sell you a shadow box made specially for you with it! Everything is always for sale, but not for stealing, so please don’t steal my work. Lastly, As you’ve noticed my post is really long. I will probably compensate for time away for length in writing. I am trying to have more substance in my writing so let me know how I am doing.
That it for today!
Until Next time,
