A DAY OF QUEENS

MIND

Gloria Steinem 1934

Steinem sets the record straight about the oft-demonized feminist movement. Its purpose is not to attack men but “to free the uniqueness of the individual and to understand that inside each of us is a unique human being who is a combination of heredity and environment.” And in this pursuit, tremendous headway has been made, but there is still much more to be done.

The mission of the Ms. Foundation for Women is to build women’s collective power to realize a nation of justice for all.

*Think about what makes you so unique as an individual. Think about your personality and which parts you were born with and which parts you’ve learned. And finally think about which parts of your personality and thought process that you would like to change for the better.

BODY

Sarah Jessica Parker 1965

Her obsession for gym and workouts actually popped up after the birth of her twin daughters in 2009. Apart from spending two incessant hours in the gym, she ran five miles on a daily basis during that time. Her skinny body and the bulging veins of her arms actually manifested the hard workouts she undertook. However, before late, she realized the importance of moderation in workouts and trimmed her extensive workout hours.

But on any given night, when that lady sits down at the piano and gets her body and soul all over some righteous song, she’ll scare the shit out of you. And you’ll know—you’ll swear—that she’s still the best fuckin’ singer this fucked-up country has ever produced.”

David Foster and Katharine McPhee’s engagement has turned heads due to their 34-year age difference. It will be the fifth marriage for the 68-year-old songwriter, whose last wife was The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Yolanda Hadid, and the second for Katharine, 34, who first met David in 2006 when she was 21 years old and fresh off of American Idol.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
