I watched Young and the Restless since I can remember. My mother would watch it back before we had 24 hour cartoon channels so I pretty much had to watch what she watched. (I also went outside or played with my toys more than my kids do now) I remember Victor meeting his mother before she died or when Nikki had Victoria. I also remember the Daniel Romalotti and Cricket days. I was a child but I still couldn't stand Cricket. Anyways, throughout the years I have watched the soap off and on. I missed the show usually because I was in school or I was working. Then I became a housewife. For some reason, though I was finally the intended audience, it was harder to get into the show. I DVR it just to fast forward the annoying parts. My kids will come and watch with me. Aron knows all the main characters and Victoria, Aron, and I will discuss the show together. They don't get why Adam is the villain when he is just as bad as everyone else. Aron wonders when Tucker will wake up from his coma. Lately, when Aron and I watch the show we fall asleep. It is that boring. How many times can they exchange partners? (I skip the love scenes if you are wondering.) The writers recycle plots to the point it almost seems like they aren't trying. The new Cane/Caleb storyline is so stupid that I have stopped watching. Cane has a twin? If I lived in soap world I would never worry about dying and I would always be nervous that I have a secret twin. (or that my arch-enemy had plastic surgery to look just like me and is getting me in trouble by committing crimes.) Even my kids are confused. Someone just died, so why are they alive again after we spent a week mourning the character. Aron asked forever why Sharon was alive when she died. (Why is she not dead?) So, even though I wonder if Tucker will wake up from his coma, the current story lines of Phyllis and Lucy, and Cane/Caleb have turned me off and I will stop watching the show.
I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made. It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of w
