NYCHA ice cold buildings vs how it affects NJ

The difference between NY and NJ is the sentiment. I am a little cold right now and in NJ, but it’s not frozen at home and I am feeling fortunate, because I am indoors right now. Outside is very cold. Now 13 degrees.

I do not have a space heater. I am sipping on tea and very bundled up. I would rather wear a coat because it is cost effective until I go to bed. Literally.

Creative Ways to Stay Warm

  • Wear an old coat
  • Wear layers
  • Drink tea
  • Grease more than hair
  • Exercise/ move around
  • Layer up your bed
  • Cover your head with a scarf and steam your hair baggy method.
  • Hug your loved ones
  • Control your heat and share
  • If it is too cold and you get sick stay home and cancel your daily activities. See a professional that can help


My Oath of Allegiance

Every now and then, I revisit my Oath I took to get my career going from day one. I do it to keep me focused. Although I am not feeling well, I often need a reminder because I know why I chose this path.

When was the last time you revisited your oath. Just because you changed location of employment does not mean it ended. ServiciosDeLasCarmen/ 5

I am collecting donations because I have not given up on my Oath. My dream is to be able to donate more materials for people to grow and learn. Thanks for your donation.

How to Remain Confident in any Situation…

  • Say less
  • Listen
  • Observe
  • Take Action
  • Be prepared
  • Reflect
  • Have a plan B.

Be confident that you can change your circumstances no matter how difficult it may be.

This works in most environments. Some situations are just too impossible. At this point make up your mind and move on. If you are still up to it try plan B.

Government Shutdown

The government Shutdown sounds like cruel and unusual punishment. It sounds harsh to starve people out of their home for a wall. There has to be another way to at least meet each other half way. Starving people out of a home is a crisis. Water supply in Newark, NJ and now people are being pushed out into the street.

Clearly this is cruel and unusual punishment. Next programs being affected are WIC, section 8, school lunch program. This sounds like genocide and it is getting worse.
