Talk Time with Hope

Talk Time with Hope

By Hope
This is a podcast that has me talking about my life. The good, the bad, the ugly and everything in between.

I believe in laughter. It is one of life's greatest medicines. But I can get serious or be serious too. Though, admittedly, I prefer life that involves more humor than seriousness in it. But, hey, that's just me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks for stopping by and hope you like my podcast enough to come back for more, and maybe even share it with those you think may like it too.

Met 3 cool dudes! Man rescues wife from bobcat! Bear attacks!
The limited driving I have done, of late, had been really good cause I have met some cool people and of those cool people were three cool dudes. Marty and his brother and their friend, AKA the model, were such a breath of fresh air. I enjoyed the conversation(s) we had and boy did we have so much to talk about. He is a barber who is on Youtube and Instagram and please go check him out ---> Maryblendz

What is going on with Hope? Pray for India. Yes, a bit about the vaccine and masks. Sorry not sorry. :)
Well guys, I is back! I didn't plan on not doing an episode for two weeks, but sometimes it bes that way. And for me it was due to the latest chemo treatment I had. It knocked me down! I was drained of every ounce of energy I had. And how awesome it is to feel alive again. I think this chemo fatigue lasted for a good 5 solid days. But atlas, I'm much better and wanted to give you an update on how I'm doing.ย  I'm also talking a little about what is going in India with this pandemic. Not good, at all! Please keep them in your prayers or send them good vibes, love and light. They definitely need that!ย  Also, no regrets, speaking about vaccines and masks. It just can't be avoided guys. The stuff going on today should be categorized as fiction. It's almost unbelievable how we Americans take things for granted while at the same time want to make something out of nothing. Like what the what? ย  Join me as you tune in to my latest episode.ย  As always, take care of yourself and keep doing what needs to be done so we can get closer and closer to ending this nightmare that is covid19!ย  P.S. Sorry I got on a tangent about the just erks me that us Americans have access to BOTH shots and so many are not going back for the 2nd one WHEN people in India are dying in numbers we can't even imagine and would love to be in our shoes during this pandemic. :-(ย

Vaccines, Masks and American Gods, oh my!
This is not political. Nor should it be -- thought people do try to make it so.ย  I'm talking about vaccines and how we need to keep moving forward with people getting them. Yes, there have been people with adverse reactions and there have been deaths BUT when you look at the MILLIONS of people getting vaccinated you have a better chance of getting struck by lightning or winning the lottery or maybe winning the lottery then getting struck by lightning. I'm in NO WAY saying people who have died or been seriously affected are not important. Of course they are. I'm just saying that it's a slim to none chance YOU will die or get adverse reactions to the vaccine. And to keep in mind that EVERY medication has some possible side effect...even the stuff I'm on. It doesn't stop me from taking chemo though. Knowing the bad possible side effects and the slim chance it could really be not good for me. I will still take it. And I'll get the vaccine, once my body has recovered (completely) from shingles.ย  I'm also (YES AGAIN) talking about mask and the importance of continuing to wear them! Yes, yes, yes! It's STILL about protecting yourself and thinking about others. I know why Hope gotta be about being courtesy to others? ;-)ย  And last thing, is about the show on Starz, called America Gods. Very interesting show. Give a listen to find out why I think that. :)ย  Stay safe and healthy!

It's a politics kind of day! wat wat! :-) (two parts)
So, this episode is (for the most part) solely dedicated to politics. Talking about Matt Gaetz, Majorie Taylor Greene (I just can't with that name) and and what the heck is going on in Georgia -- with its voter suppression laws passed. And regarding the plethora of corporations standing up and say "hey, this ain't cool!" Come take a listen. :)ย

Welcome back...and welcome to Season 6, y'all! :)
Alright so it's been almost a full month since I ended season 5 and I hope you guys didn't miss Talk Time with Hope too much. Ok, maybe I hope you did miss me...cause I maybe kind of sorta just a little missed y'all and doing my podcast thang! :-)ย  This season will have 23 episodes as it represents my age 23 and what was going on when I was that age. Which happened to be in Austin Texas. Well, I turned 23 when in Austin and did a year there. I loved the Hill Country and I sometimes wish I would have stayed there, but everything happens for a reason and it just wasn't meant to be.ย  Anywho, things are going well and I believe that is reflected in my voice. I'm happy to tell y''all that I got interviewed on a radio show and it was quite awesome! The show is PHLV -- which is connecting people of the Fillipino community. Really amazing group of people! And the hosts made me feel really awesome! One of the hosts that interviewed me is Josie, who is a co-founder (and cancer survivor) to Fillipino American Cancer Care. They are doing amazing things! And to be a guest on their show was such a blessing! I'm so grateful for the opportunity to spread much needed ovarian cancer awareness and sharing my story. I'm told I did really well with the interview. Admittedly, I was a bit nervous. So, if you are like "Hey, Hope, how can I watch that interview?" I am about to make you happy! ;-) Here is the link:ย Last thing I'm talking about is how people that are scared of their friend or family dying from cancer or anything really backing away from the person that may die. It's not about that person but rather the person that very well could die...why people don't get that it's quite selfish to back away or leave someone simply because it's too hard for them to handle the possibility of their loved one dying I can't understand. it's not about you it's about them. Be there for them. Period. Full stop. If you love them anyway. Yeah, I'm speaking of personal experience. I feel it's happened me and to others out there. Love is love, right? Love people through it all. And real love is being there for those you love. At least that's what I believe.ย  Y'all stay safe. Be careful. Keep healthy. This virus ain't gone yet. Keep wearing your mask. Keep social distancing. And if you haven't gotten the vaccine yet, thinking about doing so. Until next time! God bless and have a beautiful Easter weekend, for all that celebrate it.

End of Season 5 has arrived. Shingles did too! :-( Keep wearing your masks, y'all. :)
Sorry it took me so long to get this last episode of season 5 done. But things have been crazy! The second treatment seemed to be going well but then seemingly out of nowhere I got hit and hit hard by SHINGLES! Or as I refer to them as a piece of hell itself. Ok, maybe that's not what I have called them but just as I was typing this I did think that's what a piece of hell on earth would be like. The pain that comes with shingles is a new experience for me and that is saying a lot considering I've endured much pain in my young 50 years of life. Especially in the nine years dealing with cancer. I didn't know about shingles, but I do now. And everyone should too. Except for those that never had chicken pox for y'all be some blessed folk as you'll never get them. I forgot to mention that there is a vaccine for shingles for those 50 and older. I will look into after I'm better. I don't EVER want to go through this again.ย  Anywho, because of the far far far from lovely shingles chemo #3 has been pushed back a week. Which I am totally cool with. I need to heal about more before enduring the pain from chemo. And with it being #3 it could be worse than the previous two. Or hopefully maybe not. But even still, wouldn't want to have chemo until this rash and this horrid pain is more under control.ย  Alright, so you probably heard that Texas is lifting the mask mandate starting tomorrow. Yay, said most actual Texans. Especially those that lost a loved one to the virus. Another example of poor pathetic leadership. Like has it always been there and I just didn't pay attention cause I was living abroad or are these guys just getting worse and worse with age? I think I know the answer.ย  Please stay safe and keep healthy. See you guys at the end of March for season six. God bless.ย

My Spunkey is doing better! Culture club! J/K Cancel Culture. ๐Ÿค”
Was able to take my baby, Spunkey, to the vet. A vet that was recommended to me by a somewhat new friend, who loves animals, and a vet that didn't cost a leg and an arm. Praise God! Now, the only problem is the whole giving her her liquid medication. CATS DO NOT CARE TO BE GIVEN MEDICATION VIA A SYRINGE. Or really any other way aside from a shot (and I"m willing to bet they don't care for that either). It has been crazy trying to get her medicine without her foaming at the mouth not swallowing it. But I think I found a way. It involves a pillow case and a towel. Note: It does not involve her being harmed. I think I have finally understood the saying my mom would say to us, when she spanked us: "It hurts me than it hurts you." In this instance, it's more like "This is freaking me out more than it is you." Which, I'm willing to bet that she is still more freaked out than me as she's the one being held tightly in a pillowcase wrapped like a burrito while her human sticks a syringe in her mouth that releases gross stuff that makes her act like she was raised in the wild versus being a domestic cat all her almost eight years of existence. But. I. Digress. Now, wanted to talk about culture you really want to hurt me and Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma chameleon You come and go, you come and go --- which until JUSTSECONDSAGO I always thought it was "comma comma comma comma chameleion" which the comma stood for come on. YES, I know I'm a dork! Have you not being paying attention. heehee But seriously, I'm really talking about this whole being talked about all the time "cancel culture" topic.ย  Tune in to find out more! ;-) ย

What a BEAutiful day! Ted Cruz & Tucker Carson & others-men's turn. ๐Ÿคฌ
I had a nice day today. I went for a walk and enjoyed the sunny warmer weather. I have problems with my knees, neck, back and shoulder so well it makes it to where I can't exercise like I used to and for very long. ๐Ÿ˜ญ But I can still do something so that's what I'm grateful for. ๐Ÿ˜Š I talked about women a few episodes ago, that aren't so nice and about white privilege. Well time to talk about the men. I'm all about diversity. So, Ted Cruz is a such a...douchebag. And so is Tucker Carson. And so was Rush Limbaugh. These guys are mean spirited and liars. Rush was not a nice guy and he didn't care. I pray for his family as they lost him a few days ago. I pray for his soul too. These guys seem to get off on igniting anger from their followers. And it's like up there with sex sales. These are supposed to be Christian men. Ok, Ted Cruz isn't necessarily like the others BUT he sides with that former President and doesn't stand up for justice. So he is not too far away of being like them. Ok, tune in to get more of what this episode is about. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My mouth sores has me speaking funny, again. Trying something out. Littering! ๐Ÿคฌ
So, the darn chemo has affected my mouth again and well it has me thinking I sound a bit English. I know my British friends won't like my British impressions but maybe they'll get a chuckle out of it. So, I'm trying something to see how it goes. A some reasons why: 1. I gotta be realistic with my financial responsibilities and though I've got donations (which I'm TRULY grateful for) it's not even half of the goal that is to help until June. And so doing some part time work maybe 3 days a week will help ensure my bills are paid. 2. I miss human interaction. It's been almost 3 months since I've worked and it was nice meeting people again. 3. My Spunkey has been throwing up and seems quite lately in a I feel she's not well and needs to see a vet. I lost her sister, Monkey, 4 months ago. I don't want to lose her. Maybe it's something that will pass or maybe it won't and I'll lose her too. But at least she can be seen and a vet can tell me what it may be. They were from the same litter, maybe that and their breed is prone to illness after age 7? But for cats that's not old. I just love her so much and losing Monkey gutted me. Then my mom. So I don't want to lose her. Praying whatever is going on is not serious. Please pray for my Spunkey. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ Driving for 3 days a week will help with unexpected situations...taking her to the vet being one of them. Although my friend blessed with some money I don't know how much the vet will be especially if they will need to run x-rays and blood work and what if she needs medication? It can be quite costly. Now, please note that I will assess how I feel before getting behind the wheel. If I have the energy, I'll do but if I don't, I won't. And if I ended up getting my goal met then of course of not drive. And maybe will have to join a group, online, to get that human interaction. And well if my oncologist tells me not to as it puts me too much in a risk of getting covid19 again, I'll not do it. But I think it's doable. People are way better at wearing their masks now than last year. And so I will be safe. I am strong and I'm kicking cancer's arse, so I'll be ok. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพ๐ŸฅŠLast thing, people need to do better with not littering. Tune in hear what I mean and why I bring this up today. Stay safe and healthy y'all.

Finally doing well after chemo #2. Freak winter apocalypse in Texas. And yeah he got acquitted.
Alright so A LOT has happened since my last episode. Happy to report I'm, hopefully, over the hump of not so great side effects from the second chemo of this second recurrence, oh I pray last recurrence. The nausea was insane. And the muscle pain was excruciating. But I'm doing alright today. Now I am, all of Texas (and many states) are dealing with freak winter stuff. Yes, Texas is going through freak winter stuff. Freaskish. Stuff. Temperature record lows, like 1f degree when places like Tromso, Norway are at 25f. What the what????? It's been insane. Had to stay at my brother's place due to my place not having power or heat. Yes, I took my baby, Spunkey with me. :-) Oh and that dude that was the president got acquitted again. Not that I'm truly surprised. But listen in for more. Cause lots to share.ย ***Disclaimer: I make mistakes with my verbagage ๐Ÿ™ˆ***

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Majorie Tayor Green & Jenny Cudd
It's Super Bowl Sunday and this gal really isn't into it. If my Dallas Cowboys aren't in it than well why watch? :-) Ok, I said I had some political stuff I'd be talking about in my next episode and this is it. Feel free to skip to where I talk about World Cancer Day. Or tune in and see what I have to say. Not just on Majorie Taylor Green (MTG) but also on Jenny Cudd (I think I said her name was Sherry, but it's actually Jenny) and how white privilege is so still a thing. White privilege and how people get to be bat Qrazy and be giving political position. Like what? Like what the what? Like what the *uck? Btw: I said MTG was in the senate, but she's actually a U.S. Representative. I forgot to mention that due to her outlandish beliefs she the committees she was supposed to run were taken away from her. Bravo that the Democrats did that and well non-bravo to the Republicans for doing absolutely nothing. Tune in hear all I have to say about that. And about world cancer day! Stay safe and keep healthy.ย ยย

Why (and how) I like to celebrate my birthday! Yes, the big 50 has arrived! :)
I know I touched base on my birthday in a previous episode, but I wanted to share with y'all why it's way more worth celebrating now than before cancer. And how I like to celebrate is not in a big to show kind of way. I like more low key and can quite frankly be good celebrating on my own. But one thing that is different is not having my mom here to even wish me happy birthday. She was almost always the first one for that, even when I lived overseas. I've had birthdays without her, but she was always a phone call away. And not having that is so hard on the heart. But I feel she sends me little nudges from heaven or has recently. I'll save that for another episode for now. :) Come listen in and maybe share with me how you like to celebrate your birthday. Send me a tweet @ talktimewhope or email me @ And if you are looking to help a sister out while she goes through cancer a third time please consider donating to my gofundme: Fundraiser by Hope Aguilar : Hope for Hope ( Lastly, apologizes about the sound being a bit off. I'm doing my episodes on my laptop now with a proper microphone and well just getting my feet wet with it. Thanks for your understanding, but hope it was not too annoying. Wait, true, lastly, send me any recommendations you may have on things you'd like me to discuss. :)ย

Losing the non-dying way.
Going to talk about, gonna shock y'all but not about politics or even anything in the news, losing friends. In particular, me losing a good friend recently. Not to dying or death, but rather to, well, I guess I rightly don't really know. If you were to know me on a personal level you would discover that friends mean the world to me. Friends are like family and some are just as if not closer to me than my actual family members. So, when I lose one it hurts a lot. I know I'm not the only one that feels that way. We love our friends. And when we lose them either due to doing something for that to happen or not knowing why it can tear at the heart. And maybe it would, but I have no time to get caught up in hurting over the loss of a friend. Why? One, I didn't do anything to cause the person I thought was my best friend to practically ghost me, to go radio silent for three weeks. And two, I'm battling cancer for the third time. I simply don't have time for that. I have to focus on being well, on getting healthy and that includes a good mental healthy way of life. Getting caught up in being down, being sad because the person I thought was "my person" in many ways walked away when I really could benefit from having them there or around while I go through what I'm going through would not be healthy for me. And really WHY spend time on someone that obviously saw our friendship so easy to walk away from? It was a shocker, it was hurtful. But that's life. It be what it be sometimes. And I know there are many out there that have been hurt by a friend or even friends so I know I'm not alone. Listen in for more. Stay safe and keep well.ย

Almost 50, grateful! When right becomes wrong!
Ok, this gal is about to turn 50! Yes, I know, I know, but you sound and look so young! Awe chucks, thanks guys! But seriously, you will never know grateful I am to STILL be here. Turning 50 means I am celebrating my 9th birthday from when I was first diagnosed with late stage ovarian cancer. I looked at the statistics the other day and it shows that 15,000 women die each year from the disease. Which means that 135,000 women have died in the last nine years. Talk about survivors guilt! But then again you look at that and look at how many people have died from covid-19, which is 400,000! IN JUST ONE YEAR!!! But I digress. So, knowing how many women have died in the past nine years and me getting to celebrate another birthday, well, grateful really doesn't do it justice on how I feel.ย  Moving on, have you heard of the young guy that turned in or tipping off the FBI about his father being part of the January 6th insurrection? Well, he was on CNN and other news outlets and now he has over 12,000 followers on Twitter. And, and, and he started a gofundme for himself. And it started out for $40,000. Yes, that is what he was going for. But then he moved it up more and then more and more and NOW his goal is for $100,000! You read that, heard that right! And I just feel that is not cool. I feel like he got greedy and is being quite selfish with taking advantage of people's kindness and generosity in a monetary manner. Guys, $100,000 for what? For doing the right thing?! Listen in and then let me know what you think. Is it just me that thinks him asking for that much is outrageous! Am I wrong? I'm not being jealous. It's not about him getting more and here I am a cancer patient and can't even get half of what my goal is. Ok, it is crazy that in ONE day he got $57,000 and in almost one month I got only almost $1,500. But it's not about jealousy. If I wasn't sick, I'd not have a gofundme out there and you better believe I would still be writing & saying all of this. Ok, ok, listen in for more. :)ย  ***Correction: my gofunme has been shared 84 times, ย not 177 times.*** Fundraiser for Hope Aguilar by R Sharon Skievaski : Hope through Cancer! Third time's a Charm.

Welcome, POTUS46 & VPOTUS Harris! (Don't) Take me to church!
The time has come, the day is here! How refreshing to hear a message of unity. To hear a leader speak clearly and a way we can all understand. I mean great start, sir! ๐Ÿ˜‰ And Kamala Harris, just wow! Looking forward to seeing what good will come from this new administration. And praying the bad folks out there wanting to overthrow our Democracy will be caught and face the consequences to their actions. Moving on: I love God. I believe Jesus to be my Lord & Savi. But I don't go to church. Listen in to find out why. Btw: churches that open and do not mandate their congregation to wear masks and refrain from hugging and shaking hands during a world pandemic that's killed 400,000 people, in America alone, has me sadden, disappointed, and angered. Like really?!?!?!๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜ท

How I'm doing at day 9 after chemo. Update on Capitol attacks!
Alright day 9 and feeling fineISH. As with all chemo, especially for late stage cancer, there will be side effects. And I gots them! Very glad I was able to speak where I can be understood, hopefully. ๐Ÿ˜‰ If talking about cancer and chemo scares you please let it scare you to listen to your body and see a doctor if signs and symptoms persists for more than two weeks. Don't be like me, be better and don't ignore what your body is telling you. Early detection, diagnosis, is WAY better than late. Trust me! Now, what the what happened at Capitol Hill? We thought we knew but guys it's even worse. I'm gonna share what I've learned. Plenty of news outlets to get your info from and all are sharing the same SHOCKING stuff. We will not forget and just move on. And this was not the same as "those BLK protests", hello! More is gonna come out too! Be prepaded to be angry and sad. Moving on: I'm hoping to be more kind. Like it's free! And the world could do with more kindness. Like for realz! If you can be a part of kindness, please do.

More on what happened in D.C. update on my first treatment. It might snow here. ๐Ÿค  โ„
Guys I'm (as those that have listened in know) very passionate about things and what happened in D.C. can't and shouldn't be forgotten just because it's over. It's not about just moving on. We didn't do that on 9/11 or any other time our country was attacked. And make no mistake about it, it was attacked -- from within. Home grown terrorists, even if not everyone sees it that way. I did cycle 1 of the chemo session and it went well. Thanks be to God. I rested for two day at my stepdad's place. That was nice. And now back at my apartment. I have had some side effects, but they have been really mild. Hallelujah! I know it's still early but taking the good where and when I can. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Texas is looking to get snow. Like maybe even up to 3 inches -- which is a lot for Texas. But because it's Texas it could be down and gone within an hour. Lol. Y'all be safe and healthy.

Pro trump supporters have BREACHED the Capitol! ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜” Starting chemo tomorrow. ๐ŸฅŠ๐ŸฅŠ๐ŸฅŠ
I didn't want to talk politics and really I'm not. What has happened today is insanity! Beyond insane! It's unconscionable! All of this was incited and orchestrated by trump and his people. And it is sad! I'm saddened by this. And angered by it too! This is not what the conservative Christian side is about. Or should not be about. This is horrible!

My mom died last month, covid19. ๐Ÿ’” Ready to start 2021 w/podcasting again!
My apologies for not doing any episodes for over a month. To say the end of 2020 was bad is an understatement. The surgery to remove cancer was a success; however, on November 29th I lost my best friend, my rock, my prayer warrior, my mom. And she died from complications due to covid-19. ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜” It happened suddenly and unexpectedly. It devastated all of us. And it has taken me some time to get to a place where I would speak about it or her without crying. I was also not in a good place health wise as I got covid19 too and at the same time I was still healing from surgery. But I'm better now. I will begin chemo treatment next Thursday. Got my boxing gloves ๐ŸฅŠ๐ŸฅŠ and ready to kick some cancer arse! And ready to get back into podcasting! Please stay safe and keep healthy as this virus isn't done with us yet. ***my friend started a GoFundMe page for me. If you or anyone you know would be able to help please share.***

What the what? #notmypotus STILL not wanting to concede! Rude rude rude rider! Happy veterans day!
Ok, what the what the friggin what is going on the white house??? Seriously guys, I could not not talk about what #notmypotus is continuing to do. He is continuing to act like he didn't lose the election. Even thought the more they investigate the voting the more they find he IN FACT lost! More votes are being counted FOR Biden NOT Trump. Yet, yet, he is still not wanting to concede. And his administration is doing the same. Shameful! And embarrassing as countries are surely laughing at us...more than they have the past 4 years. Spoke with a gal, I foolishly thought was not a Republican. People facts are wanted on all sides. But she thinks only Republicans believe in facts. Really? Ok, next, speaking of shameful. Sharing about this girl that went all cra cra on me. Over a darn mask and manners. Where did manners, common courtesy, respect and compassion disappear to? This country, this world, needs to return or just start being a world of love and not hate and angry and rudeness. Hello?! It exists. But we need more of it. Ok, big shout out to military veterans! Sorry I'm a day late. Some restaurants really did great celebrating veterans day! Pretty awesome! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ˜Šโค

Let's try this again! Joe Biden & Kamala Harris! Meeting more cool people!
My Spunkey (my adorable cat) was laying on my chest when I recorded yesterday's episode SO after listening to it I thought it too much. Love her. But the heavyish breathing and purring was not ideal. Hence trying it again. This one should be better...should. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Talking about POTUS #46 y'all! And how excited I am about the results of the election. And give it up for Kamala Harris! How freakin awesome! Wat! Wat! ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸฅณโœŠ๐Ÿพ Now let's just get manchild out of the office by January 21st, 2021. I pray it won't be difficult as of right now the dude doesn't want to concede. Really?! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ OK. I'm meeting more cool young go getters! Met a gal with a name like Monica. Big shout out to her! Hope to read her book some day. ๐Ÿ˜Š Lastly, there seems to be a decline in common courtesy and social etiquette, i.e. manners. Maybe it's just in my area of Texas? Maybe not. I just feel so many people don't know how to think outside of themselves. More and more I see a "meism" world. Hope to be big time wrong about this.

Election night y'all! Health update. Meeting more cool people!
It's election night! Did you vote? Spoke to passengers today about voting and some did and some didn't. Why though? We needs to do better with informing our youth so they can become adults who vote. I truly believe that. Even if I didn't speak about it in this episode. And I don't know about you but not sure if I'll be able to get good sleep tonight. Which is silly cause it could take a good week before we truly know who will win. Please dear Jesus let it be Biden/Harris. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ OK, you masking up? Hope so cause covid19 ain't going anywhere! Oh wait first given y'all a health update. Call me: 3 time cancer survivor from now on. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ Oh. Dallas Cowboys! What?

She is super cool and she is doing good stuff this year and has goals to do great stuff in 2021! And trust me she will achieve those goals! Also letting y'all know that despite the not so great news about my health. I will fight.

Ok, welcome back! This is episode 1, part 2. Giving y'all a health update. Talking about #notmypotus and that cra cra debate between him and Joe Biden. Like what the what? ๐Ÿ˜ฑ And the fly on Mike Pence's head during the VP debate. The memes are hilarious! #notmypotus getting covid19 DID NOT HUMBLE the manchild. Ugh! Why do people say "you're good"?

End of Season 4, not 5! ๐Ÿ™ˆ Remembering when I was 21 & friends I had. Oh and MASKS! ๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜ก
This season had 21 episodes, in honor of my life at 21. What an amazing time that was with just as amazing people in it. I get why young adults want to go out and party. I remember how fun it was. BUT today the world is dealing with a pandemic that hasn't happened in 100 years! Maybe putting off going out where people are not social distancing and wearing masks ๐Ÿ˜ท is best? But not in America. Tried to make this NOT about covid19 BUT it's simply unavoidable. We don't have to be scared of this virus. But we must keep smart and proactive. Keep the faith and hold on to wisdom. Go out, but be smart! Wear your mask. Social distance. Keep your hands clean. And don't be a knucklehead to those wanting to keep themselves protected too. Or maybe just doing their job! P.S. met a (another) cool gal I gave a copy of my book to and hope to keep in touch. As frustrating this America is right now...I still believe there are more good folks out there than bad ill-informed ignorant selfish ones. ๐Ÿ˜ŠโœŒ๐Ÿพ ***Season 5 will be around mid October, so come back and give me a listen. If you want. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‰***

Met a cool Philly gal! Masks and VERY rude people part 1234! Saw a chiropractor!
Met yet another cool gal! This time one who is from Philly! Oh, got spoken to quite RUDELY to today. What caused it? You guessed it, the freakin MASK! And on top of that, the dude said I was trying to be "white" - like really? And hey, I saw a chiropractor today. I may start to feel better in the near future. Thank you Jesus! Chronic pain is so not fun!

Justice Ginsburg. Vote! Rhymes with dove!
Found out Justice Ginsburg passed away, from complications of pancreas cancer. What a woman who did great things in this world! RIParadise Justice Ginsburg! ***Even though I don't know how to add it to this episode. ๐Ÿ™ˆ) Ok, do did an ad to help motivate people to vote. There is no momentary gain to be received doing it either. I just would like people to get informed and get out and vote! โœŠ๐ŸพโœŒ๐Ÿพ And lastly, met a gal with a name that rhymes with dove. But she was not so dovely. Makes me think naming someone with that specific name may not be a great idea. Hard to live by that name as well it's the name that rhymes with DOVE. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Did you know September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month? ๐Ÿค”
Well it is...September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. And sadly too many people still don't know this. NINE years after I was diagnosed people still are not aware. And that, though disappointing, is what motivates me to keep advocating. Today I share about my spreading awareness and a little about my story as a two time ovarian cancer survivor. Hope it will inspire you to do some (much needed) spreading of ovarian cancer as well. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ‘Š๐ŸพโœŠ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’š ***I dedicate this to all the women who have died or are currently battling this disease and to those who are now living cancer free.***

Stop sign ๐Ÿ›‘Non talking on phone. #notmypotus & military!
Yours truly got an EXPENSIVE citation for not properly stopping at a stop sign. Reall?! Looks like I'll be taking a safety driving course -- which is still a hefty price. Gotta keep my clean driving record, well, clean! Ok, so what is up with people talking on the phone BUT not actually talking? ๐Ÿค” And lastly, the latest is about #notmypotus (AKA Trump) saying some not so favorable things about military people and veterans. Or maybe just military people. Like really not cool stuff! ๐Ÿ˜ก And yes, I can believe it. Not because I'm no fan of his but rather because it aligns with how he talks. I'm not surprised. Deny it all he wants but there seems to be many people that can attest to his derogatory words to those who served. Sadly, his fan base won't believe it nor would it matter. ๐Ÿคฌ #thisisamerica ๐Ÿ˜” But we can vote him out of office come November, y'all. So please get out and #vote. โœŠ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸฝโœŒ๐Ÿพ

Short hair & ball cap! Mouth biopsy! Jacob Blake!
So yours truly got told, by an older caucasian dude (this time...well actually most times this has happened it's been caucasian dudes or gals ๐Ÿค”) that he thought I was a guy cause I pulled up wearing a ball cap and having short hair oh and with sunglasses. I'm tired of the continued society expectations of what a woman "should look like." Ugh! I had a biopsy of my right inner cheek, yesterday. Wasn't as bad as I thought it was gonna be. Lastly, the shooting of Jacob Blake. America needs to be better - in so many ways. ๐Ÿ˜”

September is coming -- let's not let our guards down as covid19 is still present. Oh & plz TIP!
Ok guys, obviously covid19 didn't just last 10 days as one #notmypotus said back in February or March. We has to stay smart by staying safe. Right? Right! Ok, so lately I have noticed people just aren't tipping. I'm talking maybe 5% of my riders tip MEANING 95% of my riders ARE NOT tipping. Now now I know these are trying times BUT my riders are going out and shopping and things that indicate they aren't ones hurting for $$$ -- at least many of them. But perhaps I could be wrong. But even $1 can make a difference. Ya know? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™ƒโœŒ๐Ÿพ

That Chapter. "Countryman", really? Hurricane Laura.
Seriously, I'm enjoying Mike w/his YouTube channel That Chapter. Guy is funny! And his crime stories, wow! Please check him out. So, saw a car with the name "countryman", like why? It's 2020, why name a car that? Like really what is the purpose of it? Thankful the Navy has talked about getting rid of the "man" in its job titles. I got out of the Navy in 1993 and 23 years later they start talking about that. Really? Well better late than never. Right? Right! And lastly, praying for the fires in California and that hurricane Laura doesn't do much if any destruction to Louisiana and Texas. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

Have you been checking out the Democratic Convention? I think it has gone nicely. We. The. People. Awesome stuff! Some dude (passenger) flipped me off today, did I deserve it? You tell me. **I say no, of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰* And hey, we finally have women as Captains in the Texas Rangers (the law enforcement agency NOT the baseball team). So cool.

College kids running amok! United States Postal Services!
Found a publication ( about college drinking very interesting. Sad but interesting. Scary but interesting. College was not created for parties, sex and drinking. Like HELLO!

Rain! QAnon??? And school is back, kinda!
Of course it would rain after I washed my car. Of course! Ugh! But actually, was happy for rain. Flowermound, Texas is beautiful and apparently super duper expensive -- California type expensive. QAnon, getting more attention and that is not good. Glad to hear of a Republican denouncing it. Listen in to learn more. Schools are back in session. Kinda. And should they be. ??? And college kids are back and being careless with having big parties and no masks ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿ˜ท WHAT??????? Are we not still in this horrible pandemic?

I am: "One of those people" Had to share an experience I had this morning with a passenger.
So, apparently doing my best to be selfless and not selfish with regards to wearing a mask and ensuring those who get in my car wear a mask has me labeled as ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE. People need to just stop. Stop being so defiant about the masks and stop being butt hurt about being told to wear them. Let's grow up. And do our part to stop the spread of this stupid virus. Ugh! Hope you guys are one of those people. I bet you are. ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™ƒ

I have been having some lower back pain, more than usual, and some muscle spasms in my back shoulder. Took some muscle relaxers and I was out for the count. Thus, I didn't do an episode. Alright, big shout out to Cece & Z - two cool young gals I met while driving. Very grateful to have met them. And lastly, being nice and kind seems to be a rare thing these days. So much so a guy working at Subway has to thank me for being so. Happy to have made his day but sad that it's just not the norm today. Hope we all can do more with passing on kindness. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

Beautiful day! That Chapter! Amazing conversations!
What a great not blistering day it's been! Ok, discovered a cool YouTube channel called That Chapter! Nice young Irish lad host this channel. And the contents is good -- if you like learning about murder cases that is. But seriously, very interesting to learn of how people murder people and try to get away with it. Especially those that kill their significant others. Crazy! And lastly, talking about the beautiful amazing people I meet and the just as beautiful and amazing conversations I have been having with them. ๐ŸŒป

Like really?! ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ˜ก OK, so I didn't have a nice sleep last night due to cops showing up and asking me to leave my ap due to them possibly forcing their way into my neighbors apartment.

***Apparently, the audio was messed up for a few minutes at the beginning of this episode.

News to me as I always thought my ways was the only way. ๐Ÿ˜œ OK, so saw this good looking guy running BUT it looked like he was running in sandals. Strange. Are they a new type of footwear? And remember those running shoes that looked like gloves for feet? I do. My feet could have never worn those. My feet were messed up from the military, I believe that anyway. And hey why did my established audience go from 6 to 3? And now back to 4? ๐Ÿค” Have you followed me yet? Or pushed that button that has you as an established audience? Just do it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Great shows to binge & Charice Theron movie. Plus NO Texas State Fair this year.
Giving y'all my recommendations for stuff to binge this weekend. 1 Charice Theron has a new Netflix show: Old Guard. 2. West World season Three 3. Stranger Things Season Four. Very good shows but if you are not into Sci-fi(ish) stuff you may not like Stranger Things. West World is WILD CRAZY. Very different in a futuristic way. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ So, Texas State Fair is not happening this year.

Update on Vanessa Guillen. ๐Ÿ’” Expectations on women athletes, women in general.
Horrible news as Vanessa Guillen has been identified 100% to be the human remains found. She was bludgeoned to death! Very heart breaking! I pray for her family. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ OK, met a cool WNBA player who shared with me that athletes are still expected to look girly. Like really!?! Ugh! Also, met a dude that asked me if I had kids and when I said no, he was like "why not?" Like what? ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ Again, expectations of women...should be not as it was many years ago. You know?

The 4th of July, not the same this year. Interesting convo w/guy bout Saudi.
I feel like this year celebrating the 4th of July is just not the same. How can it be when we are dealing with all we are dealing with. I know I'm not alone in this feeling. Don't get me wrong. Not saying we should stop celebrating--it just feels different this year. So, I met a young guy who tried to tell me that Saudi Arabia is EXACTLY the way the media portrays it to be. He has never been or lived there. But because of his bad experience in the Muslim religion he felt like he had the knowledge to say that. Let's just say it was a very interesting conversation that could have gotten out ofnhand but, thankfully, ended in a good way. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ Last thing, wearing masks and realizing we have some funky breath. For real. Don't deny it. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ท โœŒ๐Ÿพ

Mary Trump's new book is a HOT potato y'all! Had an xray today, of lower abdomen.
So apparently #notmypotus has a niece that has written a book about the Trump family and stuff about Donald J. Trump himself. Stuff that is far from flattering. The darn covid19 bas a new form. Really?!? ๐Ÿ˜ฒ Oh I want to read it now. And though Trump's people want it to not get published I think they will get to move forward with it. Ok, so I had an xray today to see if there is anything specifically going on with why I'm having more pain in my lower abdomen.

People having covid19 going out. Army female soldier missing.
Yes, I didn't podcast for two days. I hope y'all didn't miss me too much. Lol Okay, if you are going to go out this weekend for the 4th of July, please listen to this episode first. It is still NOT safe to go out. And have you heard of the missing soldier Vanessa Guillen? She has been missing for two months and human remains have now been found which have yet to be confirmed to he hers. However, the person of interest has now killed himself. Sadly, looks more and more like she may have been killed. And it all revolves (as we know it right now) to have started from her being sexually harassed by someone in her chain-of-command. Very sad to me. And something that angers me too. ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜”

Why don't we have hazmat parties? I would partake. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ท A woman went cra cra over having to wear a facemask when buying stuff at gas station. She even went as far as spitting on the counter.

Ok, so heard today that politicians will be taking a break from July 3rd to July 19th. YGTBKM!

USA Covid19 cases, not looking good. Cold case solved after 38 years! Masks! ๐Ÿ˜ท
***Didn't have an episode yesterday causes my nap turned into a long sleep. Bad Hope. ๐Ÿ™ˆ*** Looks like ONLY two states are NOT showing an increase of new coronavirus cases. This is definitely not a good thing. Why can't politicians do more with looking at other countries and see how they are doing with their case? S. Korea opened up their bars and clubs and cases went up. The signs were there. We could have kept the bars and clubs closed a bit longer. Now people are going back to being unemployed...and business closing. Ugh! There was a cold case that was finally solved after 38 years!

Guys, had the worse rider eva today! I'm talking called me very bad names and my some derogatory comments about me and assuming my sexuality on top of it. Like REALLY!? It was hurtful the words she said to me. And it all started with "do you have a mask?" This is the world we are in today. God help is all! But not just talking about her. Nope, cause I also met an AMAZING rider today, too. Yep, amazing. Inspiring. Full of positive energy lady. Who happens to be a three time cancer survivor on top of it. Like such a blessing to have met her!

Disclaimer: Talking politics & how I had two complaints from riders.
Yes, it can't be avoided. That dude that is #notmypotus is saying silly stuff again. Calling the virus "kung flu" is far from funny. How do people still think his racist behavior is ok???? And saying we should do less testing is a good idea. Really? This virus will not go away simply because we are lessening the tests for it. Hello! Ok, so had some "feedback" about my driving but really they are complaints. False complaints I might add. But I know I'm not a bad driver so ain't no sweat off my back. โœŠ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘Š๐ŸฝโœŒ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜Š

Now, feel free to fast forward but I'm bringing up facemasks again as today I was told my attitude was not good for doing my job. Ugh! Lastly, talking about the craziness of TTT, AKA Talk To Text.

Met (another) awesome passenger today! What's up with the next stimulus package?
One of the best things about being a rideshare driver is the amazing passengers I meet. Was blessed with meeting a very nice lady today--who may be the 4th person following my podcast. Wat! Wat! Now, what is up with the Republicans not getting another stimulus package out yet? Like, all things are pointing to the need being there. Mitch McConnell needs to take action already! Oh how the government could do better with taking care of its people. I don't believe I'm alone on that thinking either. And PLEASE (I know I'm like a broken record) wear a facemask when in a ride share vehicle. ๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿš™

Are our Facebook friends really friends? Why BLM!
I'm discovering (more) that those on my Facebook aren't really friends. Like do we really know the people we allow on our page? I feel we don't. Not until things like what is happening around the murder of George Floyd do we start to see who people really are. And it is quite sad. I'm saddened by how people don't want to see things differently. They just see it there way and as if they are right too. Black Lives Matter is not saying no one race matters. It is a movement of the injustices that have continued to take place. I don't have to be black to see this. It's called sticking up for your fellow human race brother and sisters. ๐Ÿ˜”

Holy cow did I get a great (somewhat dangerous) workout today!
Talking about one of the most extreme hiking/jogging places I've ever been toโ€ฆ since the army anyway! Seriously, it was nice to work out for almost an hour however I probably won't visit that place again! Why? Because there were so many rocks & steps of going up and going down and backup and back down and for somebody with my knees and me being prone to clumsiness it's just not probably safe for me to to do that again! ๐Ÿ˜‚ O also my friend Shaon is in from Jersey, yay! , Lastly, I really wanna let you guys know that if I can continue to find a way to exercise anybody can!๐Ÿ™ƒโœŒ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ

Update on the killing of George Floyd. When people get power. Finding love online.
It's great to see people, from celebrities to people in the churches, standing up and speaking out against the injustices within lawenforcemet. Great to hear the the cop that killed George Floyd is being charged for murder. That they have concluded that Mr. Floyd died by asphyxiation. One step closer to him spending the rest of his days in prison. Talking, also, about how people can change in a negative way when they get power. Like police officers. Lastly, met a nice guy who told me how he met his wife and how they are going strong almost five years in. I love love. Even if I'm not looking for it. ๐Ÿ˜œ

Had a great time rideshare driving today! Met lots of cool people, but two in particular that could be a future guest on my Podcast. Whoop whoop!
