I Ran Out of Brain Power (To Make a Witty Title!)

It takes mental training to strengthen focusing abilities of many people and that kinda sucks! If I can’t sit and push out a chapter, or a page, of good quality in one sitting during a quarantine, then what can I do during breaks to refresh my thought process and desire to write? How long willContinue reading “I Ran Out of Brain Power (To Make a Witty Title!)”

Echos of a Child’s Mind.

I was told as a child that I was not a good vocalist-NOT just by my siblings-by teachers in music classes. It made sense, when I heard my voice recorded the way others hear it, I despised it. No wonder my high school teacher scolded me in the middle of class practice. Music had beenContinue reading “Echos of a Child’s Mind.”

Procrastination and Perfectionism -Riddle Me This.

Am I the only writer who only gets good ideas ten miles away from my computer, paper and pencil and even my dumb smart phone? I’m relatively sure tech isn’t out to get me, (yet.) But, every single time I create time and space to write, writing process is akin to pushing an insecure stackContinue reading “Procrastination and Perfectionism -Riddle Me This.”

If/Then Statements and Relationships

When I’m not doing any authorly focused activities ( writing, research, reading, building/maintaining relationships, promotion…) I am studying law and for the law school entrance exam. there is much in the entrance exam that I can do naturally well on an average day, and the parts I struggle with….*Cough looking at you Analytical Reasoning diagrams…Cough,*Continue reading “If/Then Statements and Relationships”


I’ll tell you a secret: this attempt at publishing is for my third work.

IContinue reading “Light!”

This too shall pass.

There are a lot of things parents subject their children to that give the parent satisfaction purely because they drive the child insane (my mom’s favorite might have been “The Weenie-Whiney Club theme song she start every time we said something wasn’t fair.) These moments of parental revenge seem to have more value to themContinue reading “This too shall pass.”

Lip Syncing Update…

My original plan was to lip-Sync my favourite songs so everyone could have a little laugh while getting to know me but, I feel even MORE ridiculous doing that than I do singing.(Dunno HOW that’s possible…But here we are!) That said, here you go! AND happy passover, Easter, Ramadan, and SPRING!

Never record before you shower!

I was working on my (NEW!) SickyBeat Survives Youtube Channel before I showered this afternoon…. Note to self: you get nervous and sweaty recording. SHOWER FIRST. At least until it becomes more natural anyway! Here’s my Channel link! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMTazSRZvWn137np53Q5tHQ Stay well and overcome!

Have a good Laugh

Don’t pee yourself. I know everyone needs positivity right now, and the song I am about to share (MY karaoke version anyway!) will likely provide comic relief! Shania Twain is an incredible artist and person… to adapt what Shania once said, “The best way to get to know me is through Shania’s music.” Enjoy ifContinue reading “Have a good Laugh”
