Hello there, Loves! I am happily posting for this Music Monday which Drew over at Tatooed Book Geek hosts every Monday because why not? Monday BLOWS and there is nothing like a good tune to boost your spirits, bang your head, or bust a move!
If you want to join in on these shenanigans, then Drew says feel free to do which awesome! But it never hurts to add a shoutout in there as well! i.e. Drew, your blog is the SHIT! I love Music Monday and your blog is badass. Of course this is not how normal people give a shoutout by saying it’s hosted by so and so but I am not everybody
and I am freaking nuts!!!
Anywho.. I picked the song I am featuring for 2 other reasons than it was stuck in my head. The first reason is this song reminds me of the good times of my childhood with my dad and me singing this song @ 7 years old and how I even was part of this beauty contest, I guess pageant kind of thing(his way of trying to make me a lady) and can still remember his face when I came on stage singing this song but only a short moment before I got kicked off. Too bad. It was a mess but moments like that with my dad even though they were rare were the only things I could look back on my childhood. So in light of Father’s Day this song is for being my dad’s little lady.
The other reason was because when I got older this genre was all I listened to and this song bring me back to the days of some wild times to say the least!😉❤
Hope you guys have a great Monday and hope all of you Fathers out there had an amazing day!!! You rock and deserve it!😍❤
Hello there, Lovelies! Earlier I posted a post and decided it was too much gloom and doom
and it might mess up my swagger. So I decided to take that shit down.
I mean life happens, we all live and have to push through some rough
ass times. Well I tell life to fuck off put things to a hault for a while so I can get my shit priorities together. I mean I am a fucking mama jamma badass! I mean shit sometimes you have to look at the storm arising around you and dance to the beat of your own drum. Lately, I have dealt with health issues, financial issues, thiefs and a sick loved one and child but I can’t look at that side of things. Fuck no! I have been blessed with a month to eat and had my meds for a month, I have been shown kindness that I never thought possible and even came close to a suicide attempt and pushed myself through. All in all, there is a badass in me and a boss lady who needs to erupt! I am so glad that I am back in the blogosphere kicking ass and taking names! You giys are the bee’s knees and can’t wait to read all of your blogs. Woot!
So I am sorry about my recent abscense. WordPress called me a spammer due to having “blog tour” in my title. 😒 I mean take away my bloggy blog for 2 or 3 days because of a title of a page. Dumb.🤨
So after fighting with them
jackasses , I will be more cautious of my titles so I won’t be labled as a spammer along with those people in my spam comments that have been promising me a cure for erectile dysfunction.😨 I mean that would truly be a downer!🤣😂
Not to diss anyone who needs a little a pick me up. This is a natural thing and sometimes the heads don’t work as one. It’s like the there is a disturbance in the force. I mean we all have force disturbances whether it be E.D. or constipation. Tomato, To-MAT-toe. I don’t know how we got to erectile dysfunction and constipation from WordPress but sometimes you have to go with the flow.
With constipation, any type of flow would be beneficial.
So this whole ramble was meant to say sorry for the Debbie Downer episode
(everytime I hear the word downer I think of E.D., 🤣) and wanted to explain my abscense. I would also like to ask you folks, do you you like my new theme? Most importantly, it’s not about looks, is it easy to access? 😉I got my theme courtesy of the not so happy “Happiness Engineers” and their assholeness unkind comments. I also got some new graphics from an awesome online friend as an early 30th 21st birthday gift that is doomed to happen next month. What do you think of the graphics? Try and erase the part of Dani aging out of your minds! I even have some white hairs to show me how young I am! Woohoo! Anywho, I completely jumped around all over the place which reminds me of Pete’s Significant Songs Post featuring House of Pain- Jump Around so I am going with it and will be dancing around to this song shaking what my mama gave me early this Thursday Morning. I hope you guys have an awesome day! You fuckin’ rock!!!🤩😜🧚♂️
So since I have been having some bad
shitty months I figured to look at the brightside with some “Well Shit” moments others have experienced! Woot!
Happy Easter lovelies! You guys are the BEST and I am so thankful to celevrate another holiday as a member of the badass blogosphere. Hope you like my Easter edition if shits n giggles!😁🐰🐣🐇🐥
I want to thank NetGalley and the publishers for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate this opportunity and all views and opinions expressed are my own.
Synopsis:Macy’s school officially classifies her as “disturbed,” but Macy isn’t interested in how others define her. She’s got more pressing problems: her mom can’t move off the couch, her dad’s in prison, her brother’s been kidnapped by Child Protective Services, and now her best friend isn’t speaking to her. Writing in a dictionary format, Macy explains the world in her own terms—complete with gritty characters and outrageous endeavors. With an honesty that’s both hilarious and fearsome, slowly Macy reveals why she acts out, why she can’t tell her incarcerated father that her mom’s cheating on him, and why her best friend needs protection . . . the kind of protection that involves Macy’s machete.
I give this book 5 out of 5 Freakin Fantastic Stars! I am over the moon about this BOOK!
What attracted me to this book was the cover and the title, then I read the premise and was sold. This book meant more to me than pages in a book, I understood Macy. I was Macy.
I saw many reviews on this book and so many DNF this book because of the spelling and grammatical errors. I understand the need for proper grammer but this was about Macy expressing herself. I thought it was beautiful literature!
This was beyond realistic. When Macy battled Child Protective Services and dealt with all her raw and intense emotions, I was brought back to when I was considered the “disturbed” girl who didn’t have a chance in the system but proved them all wrong.
Being a teenager and facing more things than many adults will ever encounter in their lifetime is tough. When it’s the normal to go without food or deal with “the system” tearing your family apart, it’s tough as a teenager. You’re dealing with all these hormones and messed up emotions but have no idea what to do with it all because you have no choice but to be strong. I have seen the scary side of “the system” and my normal has been “disturbed” just like Macy’s. Macy comes off as a pain in the ass and an angry/crazy teenager. When Macy has all this on the outside, all she really is doing is trying to survive and hide her brokenness. I enjoyed all the characters in this story and loved their backgrounds. Alma and George were great in their sweet but complicated way. Macy’s mother was a complete hot mess. All the characters in this story were realistic in their own messed up and unique way.
This book made me laugh, smile, and cry but overall was an amazing experience that I will never forget. I can’t express enough how hilarious this book was and realistic at the same time. I highly recommend this book to whoever can relate or wants to experience something different! I am so glad that I was able to experience Macy’s journey and to read a disturbed girl’s masterpiece!
