2019 Summer 90-Day Challenge Last Update

🤯 After I came back from Detroit and I had that bad toothache I never got back on schedule with my three summer goals. 😩

As for editing and revising Jinxed I’m on the last one third of chapters. It has some further rounds of editing and revising to go before it gets to the beta readers. I’m somewhat behind on my schedule. 🤦🏽‍♀️

I don’t eat as much sugar. I’m still working on this because this is a long term health goal that will never go away. Minimizing eating sugar is important to my overall health.

Lastly, I stopped making IGTV vids. I’m more focused on podcasting. Despite the fact, I love the video medium perhaps it’s not the right platform for me considering how I feel about social media. 🤷🏽‍♀️

I’m not disappointed. I did achieve one of my goals which was to finish the first draft of Jinxed. And now I’m also done doing the first round of edits. That’s an accomplishment. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Coming Soon: Get to Writing by Michelle Carey Podcast

I’m a big fan of podcasts. Get to Writing is my third podcast I’ve created. I’m in the process of developing this podcast. This podcast will help writers get better with the craft. I will share my personal experiences and offer useful tips to the novice and experienced writers.

In all, I would really like to teach creative writing. Many people have a story within themselves they want to share, but don’t have a clue as to how to begin, how to get through the tough challenges, and be able to get their work to the masses.

I’m here to help those who are seeking assistance. I want to share my knowledge, my highs, plus my lows on writing and being an author.

So be on the look out for the new podcast if you’re interested in writing or want to write a novel/screenplay.

I also have another podcast I started. It is separate from my Introverted with Michelle Carey podcast. It’s called Livin’ Life. I speak about current events. I will cover topics on society, culture, spirituality, health and well being.

I already have three episodes up. This podcast is on Anchor, Spotify, Stitcher and I’m awaiting for Apple to approve it.

Thank you in advance!

Dave Chappelle's Sticks & Stones (Netflix Comedy Special)

First let me say, I've been a Dave Chappelle fan for years.  He's always been a thought provoking comedian.  So if you haven't seen his new Netflix special yet, watch it. 

This commentary will have light spoilers.

 When I say Dave touched on a lot of taboo topics, he massaged them, lotioned them up, then rubbed them down in the face of cancel culture.  And guess what - I AM HERE FOR IT!  He said things others want to say, but for fear of being cancelled or ridiculed by people they won't speak their minds.  I'm so tired of people being outraged over stuff every five minutes.  How ‘bout we cancel that shit?!

If you think about it, Dave Chappelle made this comedy special specifically for people who would be the most offended by it and guess what….they didn’t/don’t even realize it!  That's what makes it even more funny!   He’s poking his finger at those people who be offended.  And it’s funny watching them tear their hair out over a few jokes.

Dave gets deep with it. Dave touches suicide.  How a man like Anthony Bourdain had everything to live for decided to kill himself, yet his friend from DC who was down on his luck never considered killing himself.  You don't know what's going on with a person internally.   He ripped into the Michael Jackson accusers.  Michael Jackson has been dead for ten years yet he's still catching cases.  Like when will people leave this be?  He spoke of how the Social Justice Warriors (not specifically mentioned, but we all know what he was talking about) went after Kevin Hart about a tweet he made eons ago, causing him to lose his job hosting the Oscars. Wanted him to apologize, Kevin Hart was like nah, yet still ended up apologizing.  Dave goes off on abortion, the right to choose, which has multiple meanings and the funniest piece is about Jussie Smollett. 

Really, LIKE WHAT THE FUCK has society come to?

I despise PC culture.  Stop being offended about every little thing.  If you don't like it, don't go seeking it to try to go and change it.  I think it’s funny how the cancel culture says people should be more sensitive to others and their feelings, but aren't sensitive to differing opinions.   Hypocritical much?

Try to cancel Dave Chappelle and I will cancel you.  I ride for my DC homie! I applaud Dave Chappelle.   He's stepping on people's toes, people who like to step other's toes, to tell us what we should think and feel and be more sensitive about.  Fuck that!  Let the offensiveness comedy begin!  Or should I say RETURN?!

Weekly 90 Day Summer Challenge Update

UGH!!!!! LOL

I’m not going to give myself a hard time over this. I realize it’s difficult to keep up with my ongoing extra summer goals when I have a host of other things I have to do.

WIP - Today I’m going back to editing.

Less sugar - Yesterday was the first day I was back on my less sugar goal. Did well.

IGTV - Yeah, no. lol This goal is like one of those things I feel conflicted on. I want to put together more videos, but I don’t want to compromise my need for privacy and how I feel about my inner conflicts about documenting my life for/on social media.

I slowly getting back to my normal life since being out of town.

Weekly 90 Day Summer Challenge Update

HA! I’m WEEEEEEKS behind on my update. LOL Oh well.

July 19th - This was the day before I was to come from Detroit. And well, let me tell you….I had a BAD toothache.

July 26th - Toothache all better but I have make a decision on one of the following - root canal or extraction. I think I’ve settled on the extraction with a bridge.

Here is the latest update on my three goals. They have gone to shit. lol

I haven’t edited anything on Jinx since the first part of July. Like at least two weeks have gone by. But today, July 29th, I’m back on it. I was going to go to the library last Saturday to work on it, but I couldn’t move outta my bed. I think I was just tired from my trip, then coming back with a bad toothache, then dealing with a lot of stuff at work. I just wanted to rest. So I did.

Eat less sugar? I did eat sugar. It’s been less than I normally have, but I had gotten to the point where I was really not eating any sugar. Today is a new day and I’m starting again.

IGTV - I did better on this, but not like I wanted. I did post some videos. But I had other things in mind. That didn’t pan out like I wanted. Maybe I was being lazy who knows. There will be other opportunities.

I’ve been thinking about my blog for the last two weeks, how I needed to write and update it. Now I feel better because I am. I want to keep up with this. I don’t want to go long spans of time before I write in my blog, like I did before.
