Habit`Acrostic Poem

Ever develop a new habit and question the why?
A recent craving for a cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream
is becoming a concern.
The timing ranges from 11:00 p.m. same day to 2:00 a.m. following one
determined by noise from a most inconsiderate overhead tenant which
awakens me from a sound sleep.
To report said individual will serve no purpose other than possible increase
of problem.
He thinks only of himself – factor discovered when vocalized another noise
complaint of different nature.
The hours of ‘quiet enjoyment’ mean little to a narcissist who feels entitled to
do whatever because he pays his rent.
Apartments are scarce; rents are excessively overpriced (some more than a
mortgage payment).
Let me tell you:  “Not all prisons have bars”, therefore I endure my circumstances.

Should I be worried about my newfound habit or should I just enjoy that cup
of cocoa and its effects?
After all this comfort drink manages to relax me, allowing me to fall back to sleep.

Acronym CVS-Dual Meaning

CVS – what do these letters stand for? What is the meaning of acronym CVS?

Up until a few days ago I associated ‘CVS’ with my local pharmacy combo
‘consumer value store’.

Unhappy with my optometrist, I decided to research all about vision problems.

What I found was another acronym ‘CVS’ which stands for Computer Vision

I should have realized spending too much time in front of a screen on a daily
basis could have adverse effects on vision.

Now I practice the 20-20-20 rule, a commonsense prescription. It reads like
this: every 20 minutes take a computer screen break-look at something 20
feet away for 20 seconds.

My interest 100% peaked I plugged into Google a question about harmful
effects from cell phones on facial skin.

Besides ‘text neck’ and ‘digital eye strain’ I was totally shocked to read a
person can suddenly find themselves suffering from a skin condition
called ‘contact dermatitis’.

Reflecting back, I can remember the morning I looked in the mirror and
OMG a different gal, one with flaky skin, looked back at me.

Perhaps my phone was the culprit and not my usage the prior day of an
unopened jar of moisturizer; I’d used this brand for years experiencing
no problems.

Reading on a bit further I discovered there are radiation effects from both
one’s mobile phone(s) and tablets.

Without going further into detail about the above findings, I leave it up to
you the individual to investigate further.

There are numerous informative articles available for reading should you
have concerns.

alone time.


Today the last day of the second month of the calendar year 2023 I
happily completed a series on National Days.

Halfway through the month I wanted to plain quit the series since
it took up valuable time I could’ve devoted elsewhere.

On second thought I chose to stick it out and complete the task on
hand, the second half of a selective day-to-day literary project.

Rarely throughout life did I ever consider myself a quitter at any
point. I dabbled in many crafts and gave each an honest effort prior
to admission ‘I didn’t like doing them’.

To date I continue to crochet, sew a bit here and there, create videos
for social media, tend to a few houseplants and blog or write poems.

Over the past few months, I’d noticed some strange happenings with
regards to my notetaking and cursive handwriting.
Words and letters legible to me when I wrote them appeared illegible
the following day.
I resorted to usage of a highlighter in hopes to make sense of the chaos.
Some of the time the neon-colored marker strategy worked; other times
it failed me.

At first, I dismissed the possibility of anything medically wrong and
chalked the distorted writing to me hurrying while writing, similar to
my busy mind filled constantly with intrusive thoughts.

Finally, after weeks of postponement I braved the courage and ran a
Google search figuring there would never be an answer for symptoms
I considered somewhat hideous.

Surprise, I was wrong and staring back in bold letters was the name of a
neurological condition Dysgraphia characterized by writing disabilities.

Of the symptoms of this learning disorder often first discovered in children
when first attempting to write specific to me were the following which now
need to be addressed:

1.  altered cursive writing and printing
2. ending letters of words missing
3. omission of words in sentences
4. difficulty remaining within the lines
5. differential in size of the letters
6. a firm hold on pen or pencil
7. difficulty writing in a straight line

And so my beautiful cursive handwriting which for years I was completed on
has become gibberish on paper a.k.a. mumbo-jumbo.

There is so much more information on Dysgraphia and I chose not to bore my

Beginning today I shall be taking an indefinite hiatus from Blogosphere to
continue pursuing my last goal in life.
