Me, Myself and Me

About me?  I am still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.  I just turned 70 so I still have time.  Life has been quite the ride, one I will never regret.  A combination of my family and friends along with my life experiences have made me who I am.  Some of my dearest things in life are coffee, cats, and living.  I try to reflect on those things in my blogs.

I could go on and on about who I think I am, however, I would rather express how I feel.  Maya Angelou’s quote sums up my feelings better than I can try to explain them myself.

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”  Maya Angelou

    Me again. I visited my writer buddy this evening. She lives just down the street from me and we try to get together on Sunday evenings, but don’t always manage it.

    Anyway, we were talking about blogs – hers, mine, others we’ve seen. I told her about yours and that you were still figuring out what you wanted to be when you grew up.

    My buddy, who turned 75 recently, said, “Quite right.” One of her favourite sayings is, “Don’t peak too soon.” That’s because nobody wants to feel they’ve done their best work when they’ve still got years and years ahead of them!

      So true. Growing up should be a constant work in progress. I think it would be boring to be grown up – it’s kind of like saying I’m finished.

    Hi, mind if I ask you a question? For our 11th day assignment I have an idea to conduct an interview with someone who is not into gaming, and get their perspective on the world of video games. Would you mind if I interview you?

      Hi,please give me an idea of what you are going to do regarding the interview. I do play games on my laptop everyday but they may be a bit different.


      • 09/21/2015 at 9:23 pm

        Well, I myself am a 51 yr old woman, and I came into gaming late in life. I’ve found friends on the Internet through my gaming that are all adults too. So we chat about gaming from the same point of view, in that we all already like it. It’s my intention to write an article that gives the views of someone who isn’t into gaming upon that hobby. But maybe, if you do game already, be it on your PC, it wouldn’t fit…anyway, let me know what you think! And don’t worry if you don’t want to do it, I’ll understand.

        Here is the website I go to for games.

        It is different from what you consider gaming. We chat also but about anything and everything. I have been a member since 2007. There are daily and weekly challenges. You win tokens, which you can use to buy stuff. You have a mini, which is a character – male or female which you can select backgrounds and clothing, etc. It is hilarious and quite amusing. So, I don’t mind the interview but I don’t believe I can give views as someone who isn’t into gaming. Let me know. 🙂


      • 09/22/2015 at 6:06 pm

        I think you are right, even though it’s not the sort of games that I write about, it’s not like you can give views as a non gamer. Thanks anyway for thinking with me, I’ll reconsider my next step, lol!

        The body (the outer tent/vehicle/garment) may age but the inner person is eternal; never ages, always inquisitive, always curious, ever asking, never growing, and so on and so forth – endless. That is why we always realize (actually) that we are ever young. That is the nature of our being, bodies apart!

    Hey there Old Sport! I’m K&L from The Millionaire’s Digest, and I just want to apologize for not being able to publish all the articles fast enough on The Millionaire’s Digest. I also want to apologize for not launching the magazine for the first time when I first said I was. I understood that I made a big error and realized that the magazine had no theme to it, but now I’ve revised it and already have people sending in their articles to me, which brings me to my next point Old Sport.

    I would just like to ask you before I get ready to have our magazine published if you would still like to be in it. I mean, I don’t want you to feel like I’m forcing you to do this because I know I wouldn’t like it if someone made me do something I didn’t want to do either. But I mean, I just wanted to make sure because you are one of my team members, and I just didn’t want you to feel left out when you see it go live in all the stores!

    Also, please know that if you do choose to do this, you do this for yourself, not me. I do perfectly fine for an individual, as you know that I could’ve launched this myself and not let anyone on it. But I’m not that type of person (Nor will I ever will be). This is just something that I want to be able let you guys do, so I can help you get more exposure to your blog!

      Thank you contacting me K&L. First off, you don’t need to apologize – you do a terrific job with your site and helping others get exposure. We’re all busy, especially this time of the year.

      Please refresh my memory about what type of articles you are wanting for the magazine. What is your theme? Also, number of articles per week? or month?

      I am sincerely interested but I don’t have a lot of available time.

      Let me know and Happy holidays!

      PS I write a lot of poetry that seems to be catching on.

Raven’s 12, the band of merry scarecrows who manage the site are grateful for your kindness and consideration. We are also cat lovers and coffee drinkers who celebrate life as passionately as you. Our field is your field, the gate is always open, so please call by whenever you’ve need of a scarecrow, a friend, or a cuppa 🙂

    Had we not discovered your age Eugenia, we’d have thought you a slip of a lassie, such is your fervent evergreen heart and curious, inquisitive mind. We also admire your name, and wondered if it is a name that has always inspired you and your outlook on life? The Maya Angelou quote suggests that you warm to your name very readily. We admire her as well for both her fortitude and courage, and for her poetry and ability to write with noble words and noble sentiment. A phenomenal woman in so many wonderful ways.

    Your Blog is a testament to your kindness and generosity, to your perspective on life and the love and enjoyment you continue to derive from it. A pleasure indeed to meet you. We hope our paths will cross again.

    Until then….take care of you and one and all in all ways for always and always.
