I've been struggling to find my writing voice... I had it - for years but it has since changed. Or at least I feel it has changed enough for me to second guess what I want to say and how I want to write it. I can pinpoint one reason for this: SCHOOL. I'm in my first year of studies for my Ph.D. of Mass Communication and dammit if it hasn't retarded my ability to mass communicate. Sure, I'm still a parent (which makes this latest endeavor THAT much harder) but when I sit down to write for this blog I start thinking about Marxism and Neoliberalism and quantitative research and beer (I AM in college) and... it doesn't get done or what does get done sounds like a rant.
WHEW! That was a loooong way to say this: There is another writer's voice emerging in our home. He is my first born:
"Ok it's really annoying how I see people complaining on how things are in their life. Or how they say it's gonna be a bad day. Personally, I don't know what's going on in your life but I can say, just be grateful about the stuff you do have. Or you can be grateful that you have a family or that you even have something like a Facebook account, or maybe the fact that you are alive and that you have the freedom to complain about your life.
Just be grateful for once..."
AND THEN -
"It kinda scares me how kids treat their parents because their Parents provide the basic necessities to life:
Love and affection
Now sometimes that's not the case because they don't provide that or they are just not fit to be a parent. But anyway
I see kids saying just saying bad stuff about their parent(s) and in my opinion
That's just horrible."
