Shutting this down.

After several e-mails with some WordPress moderators i have finally figured out where i went wrong and why the original Naturism for People of Color was shut down.  Apparently i didn’t inform WordPress that this blog and NFPOC was to have ‘mature’ content on them so that is why NFPOC was suspended and now so has this blog.  I was allowed back in to basically collect my things and leave so I may set up a new blog on one of the subsidiaries of WordPress, like WordPress.org and a few others.  Basically after more then three years with both these blogs either i was reported as having ‘mature’ content or during a sweep of the site they noticed my blogs and decided to suspend them without notice.  But it says they can do so in the Terms of Service so I’m stuck.  I have about a week left to get the rest of what i want and leave.  So i’m pretty much done.  I’ll have the new blogs set up in a day or two and I’ll leave the new addresses for each blog on this one and then i’ll delete the blog myself.  Its been fun and every thanks for being so loyal and understanding.

Starting Over again.

I’ve been thinking about it and maybe I’ll just restart Naturism for People of Color here on WordPress.  I hate to do so but i spent part of today searching for another site to start over on.  So far Weebly has been a bust due the difficulty of posting pictures and just posting in general.  I came to realize yesterday that Weebly is a site used to build websites, not blogs which is why its so difficult to put a picture in a blog post.  The site is set up to make everything quick and easy for site builders, not bloggers.  So I have been looking around and found basically copies of Weebly as far as blog sites go.  There is tumblr, which is okay but not very good with photos in my opinion.  Next is Blogger, via Google.  Blogger is nice but once again posting pictures in a good format is difficult.  I’ll keep searching for right now but as for now the site on Weebly will probably be deleted soon.  Its not worth using if I can’t do what i need to do.

Winter fashion and warmth for the at home nudist.

So yeah winter is on the way and it may not be looking good for some people.  Those of us who are at home nudists know how cold it can get in the house and worst of all how expensive it can get trying to keep the heat up enough to remain nude at home.  Well sometimes you can’t afford to keep the house at a crisp and warm 73 degrees plus all winter.  So here’s some fashion tips for all you naturists at home.

Space Heaters

You can get these person heating systems for cheap.  I’ve seen them for about 25 bucks.  I use one in the room where i have my computer and it works great.  A quick tip: close off the room where the space heater is running and it will warm up the room in less then 2 hours.

 

Footwear

In many cases I have only one part of my body that gets really cold, and its generally my feet Tread Socks, also known as hospital socks are a great way to keep your feet warm and stay trendy.

 

Night Shirts and Bathrobes

In my 20’s if you had told me that night shirts could be worn by men i would have laughed in your face.  But i used to have a number of them several years ago.  They were basically just over sized plain colored shirts and they served me well in keeping warm.  I wore them out over the years though.  But now and I have a bathrobe and I think I’ll be buying a one of those night shirts I’ve seen online.  They are great at keeping you warm and easy the slip out of, which is something I want.

 

Blankets and such

Well the cheapest and easiest way to keep warm is with a blanket, or if you insist a Snuggie.  I will say that i do have a snuggie and it works, although i struggle with the mental issue of using one of the gayest, worst products ever made in all of human history.  Blankets and snuggies are good for when you are laying down and sitting in one place.  They aren’t very good if you have to move around.  So if you wanna watch TV and keep warm, a blanket or a snuggie is where its at.

 

Keeping warm and basically as nude as possible shouldn’t be hard or expensive so i hope everyone enjoys these tips.  Keep warm and Happy Winter!

 

A sense of loss…

I used to sit back in the house and be nude all day and all night.  Now with steady employment i no longer have the time.  Even though I don’t work seven days a week or all day, it feels like i lost something very important.  Me time.  It seems now that every time i get some time to myself there’s something to do that requires me to put on clothes.  Yard work, giving my cousin a ride, something.  I kinda feel lost at times but I’m pretty sure that I like money so I’ll keep working.  I guess there is a part of me that is still getting used to all this change since its been so long since I worked a steady job.  But I also think its because I don’t really like the job.  And it’s not just the people, or the hours.  It because i feel that I’ve really gotten nowhere.  I try not to be arrogant but a really big part of me keeps saying, “This job is for plebs.  I was doing this kind of shit when I was fifteen.  Why am i here again 23 years later?”  Even my parents who were so happy that i finally landed the job are pushing me to find something better right now.  They even gave me some book for the local community college in hopes i can get some kind of skill.  And to be honest i have looked at and noticed a forklift class for about $139 for a one day class.  That’s at least 65% of one paycheck from Hardee’s.  I don’t know if i want to spend that kind of money, even if my parents are willing to help me pay for it.

But I now am also praying and hoping that i get a call later this week for another job at another restaurant, as a dishwasher.  I’d be making $8.00 per hour with a guaranteed 40 hours a week.  Once again its another job that i worked early in my adult life and I was so happy to even be considered for the job, but now I find myself once again wondering if the job is beneath me.  I really do not want to think like that.  I want to work so i can at least say that as a man i have a decent job and can support myself, even if I am a dishwasher.  *sigh*  So do i work two jobs, one that is crummy and i don’t care too much for, and I beneath my station but I’ll actually enjoy going to work every day.  Or do i try to take some class and hope i can get a even better job in the future.  I just don’t know.  I know if i get two jobs I’ll have more money, less time to be nude, and even less time to deal with my cousins.  Which other then the money, seems like a big plus to having two jobs.  Well its time for bed.  I have to be at work at 7 AM tomorrow.  Just thinking about that makes the dishwashing job seem even more appealing.

Some more about my life.

Well i need something to do in between video games and nothing else to do, so i am going to write in my blog.

So about my earlier post.  Time to expand i guess.  To make it easy, the medicine i take to keep my blood sugar under control also gives me some mild form of diarrhea.  So yesterday i was sitting on the toilet for the third time in about a hour and all of a sudden its like I’m pissing out of my anus.  Its happened before and it is not a great feeling.  But it does make for some curiosity from a certain standpoint.  So you’re like wondering, “IS this what it feels like for a woman to take a piss?”  Thankfully “pissing out a shit” doesn’t happen very often and so far there isn’t much i can do medication-wise so i am kinda stuck.  But its better then doing injections.

My job.  Like I said before in another post I am starting to hate working with black people, even though i am black myself.  My mother says that the types of people jobs in fast food attract would generally clash with someone like myself.  It’s funny because 10 years ago i would have felt right at home with the people i am working with now.  But now all i feel is a sense of annoyance with many of them.  They are immature, loud, and crude.  They are nosy and can’t seem to take a hint.  I am not interested in being a member of their ‘happy family’.  All I am interested in is doing my job well, going home, and collecting my paycheck every two weeks.  The sad thing is I am constantly told that I am too slow in putting together the biscuits so the general manager feels that I am not suited for the job.  But i am truly trying my best.  Maybe I’m not cut out to do what I’m doing back there.  But i am still going to try to stick with it.  Why?  Because i realize what a annoying little cunt i used to be back when i was in my 20’s.  I see so much of what people used to say about my behavior back then, but i couldn’t see it.  Maybe this is karma.  Or maybe God is giving me a good lesson before i move on to something better.  So for now I am there.  On another note though i may be getting a job at the new Texas Roadhouse that will be opening in August.  I pray i do get the job there as a dishwasher.  I washed dishes for much of my working life when i was younger and i was always good at it.  So i may as well go back to it.  Hopefully in August I’ll get the job.

Family and Home.  Well my family is doing good.  They are all healthy and happy.  That’s a good thing.  My house is still standing.  So that’s a good thing too.  But things are different.  I went out and bought some wash and dish cloths for the house a couple of weeks ago and so far i am quite pleased with them.  I should have done this years ago but i was lazy, forgetful and didn’t spend my money very well either.  Now that I have the extra cash I will spend it much more wisely.  I will buy things to make my life better.

My Health.  Blood Sugar is doing well.  I am sleeping well at night.  Beyond anything else i am fine.

Naturism.  Well i am still nude around the house as much as I can be.  Its the one thing i miss now that i have work to do.  I am still holding out for a chance to go to a naturist resort some time this summer.  But with work and some money issues I may not be able to do it.  We’ll see.

Also by the way i turned 38 July 16th.

Gotta love Life sometimes.

Work was kinda shitty today.  But for some reason as I write this i feel a lot better about it all.  Life is good right now in a lot of ways.  On Wednesday i get paid, my car has air conditioning, and I have my health.  Although my driver side door no longer opens and I am literally pissing out of my ass thanks to Metformin.  Yeah I finally have a small idea of what its like to have a vagina.  I have to admit i find the whole idea kinda interesting.  From a physical point of view, I have not gone gender-queer yet and have no plans to.

Happenings.

Well i have to apologize.  It has been 4 months since my last post.  But if you read my last post then you know I’ve been busy, and yeah i have been through a lot.

First off, my diabetes.  Yeah i still have diabetes.  All hopes for it suddenly disappearing have been dashed.  But i have managed to keep my blood sugar under control.  Since i have contracted this condition my resistance to being cold has dropped even more.  Forcing me to wear something around the house in order to keep warm unless I crank up the heat and run up heating bills I can barely pay for, so pj’s and t-shirts are the new fashion around the house.  It sucks but I’ve gotten so used to it now I barely think about it.  It feels like I may have to give up my at-home nudist title during the winter and early spring

I just started taking Metformin about a month ago and while it hasn’t radically changed my life, its given me a bit of a buffer so i can enjoy more food now. I am still doing some injections each day.  The reason why is because my A1C is at 9.3 and it needs to be at 7.5 or 7.0.  Considering the fact that i was at 15.1 when i left the hospital 4 months ago, my endocrinologist says that its a good improvement.  I was hoping it would be around 8.0 or 7.0.  Exercising has been the major problem because of the cold, and now because of the rain.  At this rate I’ll have to start going to the mall and walking in doors to get some exercise, and that will cost me some gas.

In the family drama corner I finally had to detach myself from my cousin Quanisha and her older sister Tenika.  Maybe I’ll write about it later but they did something to piss me off so no more rides from me, and that was about two months ago.  Suffice to say i haven’t been out or had any real fun for myself since the hospital.  Other then visiting family; i just work and stay home.  Why, because my meds are so expensive and i barely have any money left.  Its been a pain, but i have to admit, being depressed and having a online game to occupy my time has made it easier.  But tonight i am going out.  Well i can only hope that life gets better from here on out.
