Silhouette…

A silhouette appears in the clouds

The asymmetrical lines and sharp edges

The outline of life and beauty

Existing together in the sky

Situated in the clouds as a silhouette

A silhouette as beautiful as the Earth

is a silhouette, an image of you.

Trill

What is the meaning of the word trill?  The meaning can be literal, from the dictionary, or it can have a cultural meaning.

The meaning of trill that is in the dictionary is the rapid succession of sound, such as singing, laughing, talking, etc.

However, the definition in hip hop culture trill is used as a way of describing someone that is well known and/or true and real.

It’s safe to say that the definition that a person uses when using the word trill will be dependent on whether or not they are describing a sound being made, dictionary definition, or a person, cultural definition.

Who I Am

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Jazman and I am a 31 year old single parent.  My daughter just turned 9 in December three days before Christmas (talk about a busy and stressful holiday season).  I recently graduated from the University of California-Santa Barbara located on the beautiful coast of California in Santa Barbara on June 2017.  This is probably the most beautiful and relaxing campus to further your education.  In addition, I am proud to say that I was hired in October by my alma mater, UCSB.  Who would’ve thought I’d be not only employed so soon after graduating, but by UCSB.

As I previously mentioned, I am a single parent so as you can imagine my life is probably already pretty busy and hectic as is.  So, you’re probably wondering why I would voluntarily opt to create more chaos by creating a public blog rather than a personal journal.  Well, that’s simple.  I have been a single parent for 9 years, my daughter’s entire life, and I think that within that time I have learned a few things about being a single parent as well as dealing with the obstacles that arise as a single parent.  I want to use my blog as a way of sharing my experiences of having to deal with the struggles of working, relationships, and having personal time.  By me deciding to share my stories and experiences publicly provides other single parents with the relief of knowing that someone else is going/has been through what I have.

So with that said, I will be using my blog to share my experiences and opinions with/about trying to navigate through a society that’s made specifically for two parent households rather than for those of us that are single parents.  The topics that I will be blogging about are relationships, career, education and making time for yourself, etc.  Parenting as a single mother is easily twice as hard as a 2 parent household mainly because there is no second parent there to help you when things get overwhelmed.  Let’s not even talk about trying to have a career as a single parent. So if you’re a single mother, father, aunt, uncle, etc raising kids by your lonesome or thinking your all alone in your situation; sit back, relax, and join me on an interesting journey through single parenting and the obstacles that arise.
