With the death of David Bowie last week, a lot of discussion has taken place about the quality of music in recent years -- many people feel that today's artists cannot compare to those of the past. What are your thoughts about it? Do you feel today's musicians are as talented as those from years gone by? Who do you point to as an example of a great contemporary artist, and who is your example of someone you have no idea why anyone would listen to them?

I woke up this morning to my wonderful boyfriend leaving for work at 5am and cannot go back to sleep. I feel so good right now and feel totally positive. I will accomplish something today I know it. I really need to find a job and also get my disability going. So, today will be the day that I get all this done. Everyone keep me in your thoughts for finding a job, I really need one. I had my daughter all weekend and absolutely loved it. We had such a great time and I'm so lucky to have a man that is so good with her. Sadly, me and my grandmother are not talking at the moment and it is very hard because she has my son. She is totally brainwashing him and I can't stand it anymore. I just want a job so I can get full custody of both my kids. They are my world and without them I am nothing. I have to get on this thing called life and get it started. Today will be a good day.

Today is the beginning of my new life. I'm not going to be doing the stupid shit I did in the past few years. No, I have someone great in my life now and I'm not going to lose him. I will swear to my life everyday to not mess this new life go. I need to find a job and stay productive, my boyfriend says, and I will do these things and more to keep him. Today I woke up to him leaving for work at 4:20am and I am going to stay up and do what I promised. Tomorrow is never promised, my parents and baby sister had their lives stolen from them in the blink of an eye so there's no way in hell I'm going to sit here and waste mine. My sister was only two when her life was horrifically taken. She had her whole life ahead of her and my parents should have had a lot more time. Today I will start my new life, stay productive!

How was the year 2015 for you -- what was the most important thing that happened to you this year? With 2016 about to dawn on us, what things are you looking forward to (or dreading) the most about the new year? If you make resolutions at this time of year, how good are you at keeping them as time goes by?

This is my first entry in over ten years and I felt like I needed to come back. I am going to make it a habit to post at least one entry a day this year. Things are going a lot better for me now but did have the roughest holiday a person could have... I was in the hospital. So, I missed my kids Christmas morning for the first time and I know now that I have to change or I am going to lose everyone in my life that I love. I am recently going through a divorce from a marriage of 11 years and 2 kids. The custody battle is complete hell to me. I am looking for a job in the Brandon area so I can get my life back together and finish school. I want to become a Funeral Director... I know, I know, weird right. But that's what I wanna do. Well enough for this mornings entry, have a lot of work to do today so I gotta get on it.
