My First Post! ( Intro to Memoirs w/ Hokte)

Hello my name is Jessica Arkeketa! This first blog is just a little about me but mostly about my focus on the next 365 days. I’m 26 years old. I’ve recently moved back to Sand Springs, Oklahoma. I’ve moved home for a few reasons. The biggest reason was to help take care of my grandma. I’ve been pondering this idea of writing a blog. The following questions pop up….

What would I write about?

Who would care what I have to say?

Anxiety to the max but at the end of the day I will not regret taking the risk of writing this blog. I make it sound like I’m signing my life away to some major project ( lol ) but if you know me well enough 365 days is a commitment. Nonetheless I’ve taken the leap forward.

Like I said previously I have moved home to help take care of my grandma. She has Alzheimer’s and has progressed to the point she needs a constant care taker. My aunts have been staying during the week and weekends to watch over my grandma. But I figured I would help. I truly adore my grandmother and want to make the most of what time I have left. I want to document and enjoy the memories. I’m not sure if I have days, week, or months left with her. It’s a hard subject to discuss but I will always try to see the positives. I’ll be writing about my experiences with her and her progressing Alzheimer’s. For better or for worse this launches my project of Memoirs with Hokte.

Also I know I’m not the only having to go thru this as well. So hopefully this experience will help me or even someone else…
