“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” One of my favorite lines from one of my favorite movies – “Dirty Dancing” – the original one with Patrick Swayze – back before Jennifer Grey went ‘Michael Jackson’. (Just a side here – Netflix how could you remove such a classic from your catalog? Thank goodness I own it!)
Like ‘Baby’ nobody puts me in a corner! True to a note an elementary school teacher wrote to my parents – “Chelene marches to the beat of her own drum.” Thank goodness I was an honor student, because otherwise I might have been in hot water – the teacher did not write this note as a compliment. (Yes children, even in the ‘dark ages’ the man tried to ridicule us all to conformity.)
Since I am a bit offbeat in the standards of society, my blog will be a reflection of my ‘upside down’ nature. Like Donny & Marie (dating myself here), I am a little bit rock-n-roll, but also a little bit country! In fact in one day, I can easily go from Scripture reading and watching “The Brady Bunch” on TVLand to drinking an adult beverage banging my head listening to KISS! (Or AC/DC with Bon Scott belting it out!)
So in true fashion, this little (or big) drummer girl is indeed an activist-entrepreneur-Christian-homeschool-mom who married a hard-headed musician with tats! (Numerous times friends have stated – “You all should be a reality show!” NAH!!! No cameras please – a blog is best – because with all this craziness – I actually love my privacy – okay yet another clue to my non-mold fitting in this life.)
My blog might be too adventurous for some, but for those who are game, stay tuned! The Chelene Nightingale blog will be a mixture of politics, business, motivation, homeschooling, parenting, and entertainment – hum like Hometown Buffet online – well without the feast, but at least you will not gain any pounds.
Oh and here is a warning – the political viewpoints will make your head explode if you are a radical aka communist/socialist/collectivist/liberal – so if “Rules for Radicals” is your favorite book, read with caution as you might end up using your Obamacare.
And yes blog readers, there are already one too many blogs on the super-information-highway and I am just cluttering it up more…WHY oh WHY? Well I am human – like everyone else I sin…no, there is not an 11th Commandment stating “Thou shall not establish yet another blog” – but there is something to be said about self-gratification (get your heads out of the gutter) – and indeed this blog is my self-fulfillment.
Rebelling against the man – er’ woman – Mrs. Smith, my high school honors English teacher, told me I should become a writer. All these years later, I admit I should have listened! Obviously I did not so deal with the grammar issues. Although I lack the technical skills, I absolutely love writing! (Thank you WordPress! Because of ‘you’, I can fulfill my written desires!)
Furthermore, I can vent!! My free speech may be censored on Facebook, but this is MY blog! Maybe this blog will cause me to be visited by men in black suits, but I will take the risk! “Give me liberty or give me death!”
Four years ago I was a liberty candidate for governor. I learned quite a bit from the campaign experience which included the fact the liberty movement lacks the funds of the opposing movement. Let’s change this fact! Read the opps page and join the Wake Up Mission! Pay close attention and go from serf to freedom!!
Finally, adult conversation! I love love love my boys!!!! And I would not trade homeschooling for public schooling any day of the week, but even the little girl in me wants to grow up sometimes! Okay yes I am a little off my rocker, but not completely insane – I do realize the blog is a one-way conversation, but at least I can write as an adult knowing there are other human beings over the age of 18 reading.
Like Baby I am taking a chance! Honestly a blog is not really that big of a risk, however it is me purging my inner thoughts (scary – not for me, for you!) So welcome to my blog!! Visit anytime!
