When it comes to blogging, new, fresh ideas are flaring everywhere to make this blog better. I'm not truly a big technician or template designer or savvy programmer, but I do the best I can with the knowledge that I do have. Sometimes it is challenging to come up with ideas and something to write about; especially when the mind is drained. This what makes a blogger slack the strength to post something new each day, weekly, or whatever the posting schedule may be. I might as well say that I am talking about myself. Those who are bloggers that have gone or are going through this ordeal may know what I'm talking about.
The month of May is approaching quickly around the corner. Time is going by fast. Hopefully we can get some nice, beautiful weather in the city. This weekend it has been slightly cooler than the last few weeks. Therefore, it felt cold outside. I believe the farmers called this effect "Blackberry Winter." I'm not quite sure why they call it this special name, but I think it is to help distinguish the way the weather changes rapidly. We all can feel the difference from a slightly drop in temperatures to a dramatic decrease. In a sense that can be either good or bad.
May is opened for graduations for the class of 2008. I graduated last year from a challenging school of different problems and shortage of teachers and an increase of students. However, I get the reaction of how could I have graduated from that school. Everyone has their own opinions. Let me ask you this: What makes a school good or bad? Does anyone have a say in what exactly defines a school good or bad? How about the term failing? The school officials probably would not call a school failing, but if they are meeting the standards they will be "below average" or "proficient."
Bloggers often change the way they are posting on their blogs. They may change their format to increase the readership. They may change their writing style or grab a template for a new look. Blackberry Winter may change the temperature and the way it feels outside. Could the month of May help us get the self driven willingness to start off the month with a fresh start? It may or may not help the farmers in one way or another, but it could help us realize that the environment is changing each and every day. Graduations are coming up soon. Seniors will be getting a break from school during the summer. In the fall may be get shipped to college and keeping studying for a higher education degree. It also will open up their eyes and create new experiences for them. Schools are doing poorly. Schools are excelling. Schools are corrupted. Education is the future of everything.
As a new month approaches go out and try something new. Do something difference. We all have these fixed schedules where we do the same routine over and over each day. A friend once told me that she does not use a schedule, but rather she just gets up and go. She tells her children to put their shoes on and let's go do this or we are going to to XYZ. Since there is a change in the season, let's make a change in ourselves personal and environmental. Could you be dared to go beyond the fixed schedule or step outside the box to be in a different situation? Will you be able to deal with change? Is change good or bad in your viewpoint?
I will probably guess or make a quick assumption that you may think I'm rambling on from one thing to the next. That may be the case, but sometimes we have to just throw different ideas and concepts up in the air to make a point or purpose. With this said, I think we all should take the next month to go about a change. Do something you normal would not do on a daily basis. Try eating something new. Try taking action into building up your community. If you think you alone can't do anything, brainstorm with your neighbors and go for a "call for action." This is a moment in time where you can be a better you. This is a moment in time where you can help better your family, friends, or anyone else you come contact with; furthermore, they will see something new. Something different.
