Plagiarizing happens, and it shouldn’t

Last night I watched a friend be completely upset over finding out that stuff they wrote be featured somewhere else but not giving her credit for it. The credit was there but not easy to find.
That is plagerizing. Plain and simple. And it is WRONG! How dare you take ideas and thoughts you couldn’t come up with on your own and make it appear to be yours!
If you can’t find something to write about…. Don’t write. Writing should be your thoughts and ideas.. And if your idea comes from somewhere else.. Give them credit for it. They earned it.
That being said… Go read the amazing things my friend writes at Sometimesmagical lend some support to a great writer.

Boo and the Ducks

I know I’ve mentioned about my ducks before. Well since the first cold snap I lost Daisy I decided to bring my remaining ducks into a room in the house. I already had chicks I hatched out in October in there so what’s a couple more birds. It’s been going well. I’m down to just Sparky and Donald. Sparky surprised me right before Christmas by starting to lay eggs. Lol.
On to the main reason for this story.
I am cat sitting a gorgeous cat named Boo. image

Isn’t he handsome? My friends who own him have a few unfixed female cats so he came to stay with me so there won’t be any accidents.
He does the strangest thing though and it makes me laugh.
Periodically I hear him meowing by the bird room… Then I’ll hear the ducks quacking back.
I yell… “Boo stop talking to the ducks!”  and all goes quiet. He comes back to the room I’m in. I have no clue what they keep discussing. Lol. But apparently they have some good conversations because they keep doing it! Lol. 🙂

Blog Posts – Written But Not Published

Do you ever write up a blog post but never actually post it?

I just wrote a 1208 word blog post about my relationship with my spouse. I don’t know if I’m going to post it.

I’ve done it before with other posts. My mother, my family, or friends, thoughts …. Etc.

Sometimes I think it’s therapeutic. Maybe I’ll post them later. See what trouble I can cause. Lol.

This is Me.

I’m the person you will see walking down the road with a crazy hat on my head.
I’m the person you don’t understand because I live my life different from yours.
I’m the person working hard.
I’m the person just trying to survive.
I’m the person who is just a bit different.
I’m the person that you think is strange.
I’m the person who is there when you need it.
I’m the person who goes it alone.
I’m the person who feels like they don’t have friends.
I’m the person who one day you’ll see is the best thing that will happen to you.
I’m the person who you never see.
I’m the person you talk about.
I’m the person no one can figure out.
I’m the person you consider odd. I’m the person you think is weird.
I’m the person you think is fat.
I’m still a person in the end.
