Update

I haven't written for a while. I know I don't have many readers anyway, so I have low motivation. I haven't had too much time to really work on my blog and make it pretty, etc. I also hate that "Mommy blogging" has taken over blogging. Blogging has become a huge "Look how much better of a mother and wife I am than YOU!" thing. Since I think that is boring, I guess I won't earn followers in my demographic. I HAVE thought about doing a parody of one though.

I just haven't had time since our move to our new house. Moving is hell! I remember the old days of borrowing my parents' van to move my entire apartment to another. Moving was so easy back then. Now with four kids moving is a huge hassle. I hope we don't have to do it again for a while.

I also have been dealing with a lot of pain. I have a complex ovarian cyst that hurts so bad I feel like I am giving birth. Because of the pain I am limited on what I can do. I feel sick and nauseous everyday, all day. I go back to the doctor next week for some more tests. The doctors hope it will go away on its own. I still worry and panic about it. Not knowing what is wrong is what is making this difficult.

When I have free time I relax by researching genealogy and watching Korean dramas. I use dramafever.com where they subtitle the K-dramas in English. Warning: Korean dramas are highly addictive!!! Just when you think things are cheesy or too slow, they throw in a new twist. I think American soap operas have forgotten how to do drama effectively. In American soaps, characters jump into bed by the second episode whereas in Korean dramas the couple won't even kiss until the 9th or 10th. It is mindless entertainment, but a fun way to forget pain. I also have great memories of living in Korea. Since I lived in an upper class household, I lived the lifestyle of many of the main characters and ate in the same restaurants, shopped in the same stores. (I was "Gangnam style" 12 years before that song came out!) I was in a relationship, yes, but for some reason I don't remember him much. I just remember the food, cafes, department stores, and the wonderful campus of Yonsei University. Most of all, I remember being young! Only 21 years old! I was skinny in Korea! That is an amazing feat!

Well, that is my life now.

STUFF Clogging My Mind

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

How to Attract Negative Commenters to Your Blog

I have been blogging since 2006 and one of the most interesting things is when this creature called a Troll finds your blog. A Troll is a bored scary little thing that goes through blogs, message boards, and You Tube comments saying mean, evil words creating a fight. If you've never had a troll visit your blog, it is easy to attract one. All you have to do is set a bait. Here is the bait that works the best. 1. Keep a "Conservative" blog. Extra points for being a member of the Tea Party. Trolls hate those who are Conservative and this bait successfully attracts the nastiest of trolls. Bonus points for misspelled words or bad grammer. You will suddenly get a comment about how Bush lied people died etc. 2. Write an anti- Obama post. My page views increased dramatically when I wrote a post against Obama, all were people trolling and questioning your intellect. It might not work as much now. Suddenly people will write comments questioning Bush or Reagan and how ra

The House of Ephraim and the Book of Mormon

The Bible is the story of the House of Judah. It is important because that the family that Jesus was born into. His mother Mary and her husband Joseph were both of the House of David and carried royal blood. It was important that the Bible be published for all of the world, but they aren't the only tribe. In prophecies the House of Joseph (Ephraim and Manasseh) are listed along with Judah. Ephraim and Manasseh were the major tribes and had the most members. Great leaders like Joshua belonged to the tribe of Ephraim. The Northern Kingdom was called Ephraim as the Southern Kingdom was called Judah. Ephraim is supposed to fight against and then unite with Judah. So where are their records? We have some remnants of their records in the Book of Chronicles. Before they were taken away to what is now Central Asia (Afghanistan, UZBEKISTAN, and Turkmenistan) by the Assyrians, they were given a chance by King Hezekiah of the Southern Kingdom to come to Jerusalem to worship in the temple
