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 definitely believe music is NOT what it used to be. Nowadays these teeny boppers are listening to music that is made with sounds and lip syncing and it's just not right. Music is supposed to be instruments and singing not noise. Personally, I love early '90's music. I'm into Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Metallica, Slayer, Stone Temple Pilots, and unknown bands like Mudhoney and the Pixies. That was REAL music. The depth that the lyrics and low guitar sounds was just perfection. I love it. Music is nothing like it used to be. I cannot stand Justin Bieber, that is my biggest example of someone who I have no clue why they are listening to him.

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.

If you had to describe yourself to others in just one word, which word would you choose? Why would you choose that one -- do you think it's the same word others would choose to describe you?
My life word would be scarred. I don't think others would pick that word because no one knows the real me and what I've been through, only my boyfriend. I choose this word because I am mentally and emotionally scarred. Only those who get to that level will understand this.

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?
I had a pretty tough year. The best thing that happened to me was meeting my on again off again boyfriend. I am so in love with him but of course I had to go and fuck it all up like I do everything. I made a major mistake and I know now exactly how he feels. I would literally lose my mind if he did what I did. But... now it's time to start over, become a better person, find a job, acquire a vehicle, be a better mother, and if all works out be a better girlfriend. I am currently going through a divorce, the only thing holding me back is the damn money it takes to do it. I made the biggest mistake getting married to my kids father. I thought I was in love but I didn't know what love was until I met my current boyfriend. He is gorgeous, funny, silly, kind hearted, and all around good guy. I just wish I could push rewind and make all the bad things I did go away because I feel like I'm losing him. I would do anything in the world to keep him. I believe he was sent to me and is my soulmate. I just wish he knew all this and how much he really means to me. Maybe it will work out, maybe it won't but he will always have a very special place in my heart. This year I would like to be divorced, have custody of my kids, find a job, go back to school, and hopefully have my boyfriend there by my side through it all. My resolution is to become a better person, the person my parents raised me to be.

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.

Name a few foods that you hated as a kid but that you've grown to love as an adult. Why do you think your opinion of these foods changed over time? Similarly, what's something you couldn't get enough of as a kid that you'd be horrified at the thought of eating now?
I was repulsed by onions, broccoli, and pizza. I can gladly eat all these foods now that I'm grown because I guess the broccoli and onions had such a huge stigma on them for little kids and plus they don't look very fun to eat anyway. Now pizza I hated as a kid but can eat it occasionally now and not have a problem with it. I think I was the only kid who did not like pizza!
