Nobody Puts Bloggers in a Corner

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/Once upon a time, a woman began a blog; she had no idea what she was doing, but that had never stopped her before. Almost four years passed and she found blogging was just like life, only with fewer calories and even more emails.

1. Life and blogging are about choices. Good? Bad? Who knows, until you make them.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/

2. If you want chocolate, bacon, butter, donuts, cookies, cake https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/09/16/you-had-me-at-cake/ – go for it, but like in blogging, only so much before the clogging… https://yadadarcyyada.com/2015/11/07/can-you-feel-the-blog-love-tonight/

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/

3. The truth is always out there, whether it comes out or not, you’ll always know it can come out.

4. If you’re going to worry, make it worthwhile. On your deathbed I doubt you’ll be stressing out about if your toes look good in sandals, if you have the biggest house, fanciest car, most jewelry, and who you knew… https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/05/25/crapathy/

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/

5. You’re not the only one. Find someone who also thinks they’re the only one – you might help each other.

6. Having a love affair with cake and cookies can be epic, like, movie epic. Then again, Titanic and Romeo and Juliet…Balance in all things.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/

7. Laundry is evil and like all evil it grows if you ignore it…even to blog.

love47

8. Be selective how you’re giving your time, it’s the one thing you’ll never get back.

9. Let your imagination run away with you sometimes.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/

 10. Be a superhero. You don’t need fancy gadgets like Batman, alien powers like Superman, Amazon (ish?) powers like Wonder Woman. No cool suits like Iron Man, Deadpool, or Spiderman…Nope. You just need to care. Be a friend. Be there. Help someone. In the blogworld, ‘Like’ their post. Share their post. Blogging is strange when you’re a stranger…get out there and show some #bloglove https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/Saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (awesome, but I wasn’t as hooked on the soundtrack as the first one…I am Groot) – it made me want to run out and help the world. Had to rewatch Guardians of the Galaxy https://yadadarcyyada.com/2015/04/10/im-hooked-on-a-feeling/ because, hey, Chris Pratt.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/

11. There’s enough hard stuff in the world and the blogworld, don’t add to it.

12. The worst crime that I ever did, besides listening to rock’n’roll (paraphrasing The Stranglers, with a giggle), was telling myself I wasn’t good enough; if I didn’t believe it, why the Hell else would anyone else?

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/

13. People always say “quit whining”…why? Sometimes, in the midst of a good whine sometimes comes a flash of insight, a bolt of wisdom, a bombshell of brilliant. Again, moderation.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/

14. If you’re good at something, learn how to be good at it for others too. Have the Time of Your Life. I watched the TV version of Dirty Dancing…made me miss Patrick Swayzeand Jennifer Grey’s nose. Nobody puts bloggers in a corner! https://yadadarcyyada.com/2015/09/05/ive-had-the-time-of-my-life/

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/

15. Life goes around and around. Watching Twin Peaks: The Return – just as weird, but sadly, less playful https://yadadarcyyada.com/2015/08/02/never-tear-us-apart/ –  I’m reminded, you always look back through different eyes. My blog has something to tell you – when you get there, you’ll already be there.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/

16. You can lead a good life without TV, you can also lead a good life with TV – life doesn’t have to be back and white (TV taught me that).

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/

17. Despite what you may have heard, ‘Grease’ is not the word, but neither are: ‘low-rise’, ‘low-carb’, ‘SEO’, ‘dirt jeans’, ‘alternative facts’, ‘influencer’…

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/

18. Don’t be a wrecking ball (also don’t swing on one naked, you don’t want to become a meme, right Miley Cyrus? https://yadadarcyyada.com/2013/08/27/blurred-miley-lines/ ). Try to leave things as good or better than you found them.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/

19. Watched Girlboss on Netflix, different, in a good way. Britt Robertson (Under The Dome, Life Unexpected, A Dog’s Purpose, etc.), plays charmingly frenetic Sophia. Produced by Charlize Theron https://yadadarcyyada.com/2014/06/06/1-2-a-million-ways-to-die-in-the-west/  – based on an autobiography of Sophia Amoruso, an American businesswoman, who at 23 started an eBay store, Nasty Girl Vintage, which became multi-million dollar Nasty Girl. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/Also, Dean Norris (Breaking Bad https://yadadarcyyada.com/2013/09/25/faux-ode-to-breaking-bad/ Under The Dome, X-Files https://yadadarcyyada.com/2013/08/20/the-truth-is-still-out-there/  https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/01/15/5-ways-im-not-under-pressure/ 24, Grey’s Anatomy https://yadadarcyyada.com/2013/10/19/greys-anatomy/ The Big Bang Theory – everything, does this man sleep?), Norm McDonald (SNL)… Reminded me of an important life/blog lesson, a lot of things can go wrong before, during, and after they go right. I loved how the two friends always said, “Love you, in case I die” to each other, negating that terrible thought, the regret, that if you lost someone they might not know you love them.

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/

20. Gratitude is often misunderstood, you can be poor, sick, longing, grieving, hurting, waiting, low blog stats, and still be grateful. Be grateful.  https://yadadarcyyada.com/2015/11/17/10-ways-to-be-grateful-even-on-bad-days/

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/06/02/nobody-puts-bloggers-in-a-corner/

I probably won’t be blogging much this summer, so Happy Birthday Canada https://yadadarcyyada.com/2014/07/01/happy-canada-day-eh/    https://yadadarcyyada.com/2017/04/28/well-cream-you-with-our-tim-hortons-donuts-you-hosers/ and America https://yadadarcyyada.com/2014/07/04/happy-4th-of-july/

I’ll be here and there, dear readers…and love you, in case I die.

    Nobody puts this creative blogger in a corner for sure. Talking about Donna Parker with one of her posts that is crafted to engage everyone whatever your choice in film, tv or music might be and delivers a message that puts our various maladies into perspective. So if you like Dirty Dancing, Breaking Bad, Grey’s Anatomy or even men dressed as green elves head over and share.. Donna is gathering herself for a summer of family and writing and wants to make sure we know that she still loves us. As always an entertaining and must read post. Fun, fun and more fun.

  3. I liked Girl Boss but it was a frustrating example of white woman privilege. She got away with so much crap… that if she were male or of a different race she would have been… anyway. It was fun at times. But I liked the other characters more than the main Girl “Boss”. But anyway… Nobody puts Girl Boss in a corner.

    2. I’m enjoying the show too, but it is hard to believe (even as a white woman) the character was able to get away with as much as she did. I mean I know I can get away with some things, but walking off with a full sized rug in full view of the sales clerk? It’s enough to make me wonder if I haven’t taken near enough advantage of my privilege.

  4. I’m with you, the 2nd Guardians soundtrack wasn’t near as good as the first! And, I only have internet TV, so I had no idea they were doing a TV version of Dirty Dancing until my Twitter feed lit up with that hashtag… and after reading the tweets, I’m so glad I didn’t know about it and wasn’t tempted to watch it!! Have a great summer! Enjoy your life and writing the book!

  13. I enjoyed this a Lot, thanks a million! I must admit in the remake of “Dirty Dancing,” I liked the regular looking Baby who looked as young as she was supposed to be, Donna. I liked the fresh feeling and regular run and jump where you wonder if she may fall off the guy’s hands. . . I liked the interpersonal relationship between the parents, too. 🙂
    Anyway, don’t worry, we will hang around, wait for you to come visit and will come back~ always!

    I was thoroughly amused by your choices of humor. Although it is probably considered creepy, I like Chris Pratt, too. We (grandies and me) liked Baby Groot and some of the Galaxy 2 music but the plot seemed a little more corny than the first one.
    Enjoy and never feel guilty! I am working on this myself! 🌈 🐦
