Share Your World … August 14, 2017

When you leave a room, do you turn the lights off behind you or keep the lights on throughout your house most of the time?

Uhhhh, well if I’ve watched a scary film, I am probably going to leave the lights on…for a while afterwards. Most other times I try to turn off as many lights as I can. My Dad just “taught” me how much energy it wasted. So I guess what most of the time I try to turn all the lights off, but my partner loves having all the lights on.

What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $500? 

I would actually try and save it in all honesty. I might go to a favourite store and see what specials are on, but I would generally try and save as much as I possibly could. $500 doesn’t go to far these days >.<

Complete this sentence: My favorite thing to do on my cell phone is…

Too take pictures of the cat and dog…So predictable, I know! =D

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

It’s been a pretty horrible week, just generally wise. Every where you look there’s been some truly terrible news and all my work places are annoying me. However, I taped a show this week that’s come back on Foxtel that came out a few years again, and I was cracking up!…I didn’t realise how long it had been since I had really laughed at a show. As much as I love some of the show I’m “obsessed” with, they are actually kind of depressing. I will post some of the video, but I will warn you that he does use rude language. I am not lying when I say that this was the EXACT same skit I was watching.

I miss Dave Chappelle!

I still call Australia home…

32. A city you’ve visited

I guess I would have to talk about Arizona in the United States of America. A few years ago I went there for a few months a time every few months….I would work my butt off in Australia for a few months and then stay in Arizona for a few months.  I was actually dating someone from Arizona and then of course, it just never seemed to work out.

I am grateful for it for a few various reasons. It was the bravest thing I had ever done. Everyone was shocked that I went over there, including myself. I never seemed the type to go over and potentially get stood up in a “foreign” country. Which actually nearly happened, because he went to the area.

Also though it made me brave for so many different reasons. I travelled by myself and I do get airsick. I had to learn to do a lot by myself. Travelling to America taught me how to really cook, rather than just heat things up. Walking around by myself, my partner at the time worked retail at Walmart and it was about 10-15 minute walk. I used to walk around and buy grocery shopping, I learnt a lot to do by myself.

What was the last URL that you bookmarked or saved?

https://therecipecritic.com/2016/07/easy-sparkling-blueberry-lemonade/ … I am excited to actually make this, but I probably wont make it just yet. It’s Winter here at the moment, so I tend to try warmer drink recipes during Winters and then cooler drinks during the Summer. It sounds really easy to make as well.

Do you believe in the afterlife?  Reincarnation?

I do think there is an after life, not so sure about Reincarnation. My Gran believes that and I guess in some ways I do. For example, sometimes when you see a new born baby and you think it already looks so wise, they must have been here before.

If you were or are a writer do you prefer writing short stories, poems or novels?

I do like to write mainly for myself and I’ve written a bit of everything. At the moment I have been working on a fantasy type novel of a game that I used to play years ago. In the past though I have written a lot of “episode ideas” for tv shows. There was a online role-playing game I used to play years ago. For a while there I used to write episode ideas based on the characters my friends and I were playing. It was very X-Men Evolution type theme. Except instead of mutants, we had teenage elves and sorceress and half animal, half human type characters.

Story – Someone made a really good point about Facebook and I had never thought about it before. I find it easy to stay off of Facebook these days mainly because of the negativity on there. The “so called” and self appointed ‘silent majority’. You know the types, horrible, racist bigoted people. Who for some reason think that first of all, they’ve been silent and that they are the majority. There was a post on Facebook and of course the “silent majority” were being very vocal, as they usually are.

Someone pointed out, even though these horrible people were being horrible and VERY vocal. This one lady pointed that if you actually look at where the “Like” button is. There was something like 500 hearts, 300 likes and only 25 angry faces. Which means that MOST people reading the article could see the positive, could see the kindness, could see the good in what was happening. The so called “SILENT majority” were NOT a majority at all, and in most cases never are. They are just very loud, so to themselves they think they are the majority, but in actual fact, are not.

That really did make me think and made me happy. When I went back and had a look at a lot of things on Facebook, the majority of people ARE positive, they are just not very loud about it. Probably because they are happy in their lives and don’t really feel a need to make something it isn’t. Unless (hopefully) it is really important…Even if it’s just important too them.

The Core Value

31. Core Value

My core value…This one has been such an interesting one to think/write about, because I think that I have a few different types on core values depending on the situation.

The one that I think I think is most true to my core value though is to just be kind. I have done so many tests about your personality where they ask about what do you value most. They are usually something like Kindness, Honesty, Humour, and something else, but I always chose kindness. I feel with kindness comes all those kinds of responsibility. Generally I find that if you are just kind to others, the other values just kind of come naturally.

By kindness to me that incorporates everything from physically helping others to just sitting and listening to someone. Even when they are saying something that you don’t necessarily agree with, but they seem to need to get off their chest. Sometimes the reward that comes with that as well is to finally understand why someone thinks that way they do.

If you had to have your vision corrected would you rather: glasses or contacts? Or what do you use if you need to have your vision corrected?

Glasses! I can’t imagine having to try and put something in my eye >.< lol

Are you more of a dog person or a cat person?

Before I met my partners cat, I was more of a dog person. I didn’t hate cats or anything, I just got along better with dogs. When I met my partners cat though, it was like love at first sight =D lol He was just so sweet and affectionate, and sometimes when my partner hugs his cat, they end up fighting,lol…Nothing nasty, they just like to stir each other up and I swear that his cat looks at me like “Why aren’t you helping me out here?lol

If you were to buy a new house/apartment what is the top three items on your wish list?

My partner and I have actually talked about this before. We would both love to have a room where we can could display things. We both have a few things, that are just in a cupboards that need to be just shown. Hopefully to have everything working well. An amazing bathroom, where you can look out at a nice view, but people couldn’t look in!

There is a reason that I wrote my Post this week about Twitch. I was having a really rough day last Friday and I haven’t been that bad in a really long time. I was very lucky though and I went and watched the Twitch streamer Bajo Luckily that day that he was doing a really amazing stream and he did a charity stream that raised $2000.00 in a hour! Listening to people’e story was hard, but neither could I stop listening. It was amazing. Please check him out!

I’m old!lol

30. Your Current Age

A true Lady never reveals her age!

I can say though that I somewhere in-between 32-34 years old ~.^

There is a lot to be grateful for at this age. I feel like myself and others around my age, we’re at that age when we are starting to realise that being “Us” is hey okay. We still have insecurities and I don’t think that’s really going go away, but they don’t tend to plague most of us. Sure there will always be those people who just have issues all the time. I think though being older and wiser you learn to have better coping skills, most of the time.

I think you start to learn that not being the best friend of everyone is alright. Not going to every single club is alright. Having complete weekends in and not seeing another human being the whole weekend, is really quiet satisfying. That as long as you’re a good person and you are doing the best you can, that’s alright. It’s okay to not have everything perfectly set yet either. You’re still young enough to…How can I term this…Make life changing decisions, but also old enough to be content if this is what you want for your life. Whether that is making huge decisions or just living to day to day.

I’m not a parent so I would assume that’s a different kind of life all together, and I can’t really make comments about that.

 

 

 

Share Your World .. July Week 2017

Share Your World…July 24, 2017

(I feel like I should explain here why my title say July Week 4 and the link say “July 24th. You see Cee’s Photography posts the Share Your World questions on the Monday, but I tend not to get around to them until The Thursday. I just felt that it would be a little confusing if I posted Mondays date on a Thursday.)

List some of your favorites types of teas.

I love the usual black tea with milk, I usually have that a couple of times a day. The others I’ll have, I usually am not very feeling when I have them. I have just lemon tea, so literally just a cut up lemon, soaking in hot water. The other two teas that I drink when I’m not feeling well. That can be either when I have a cold or a “self-inflicted” type illness. I guess the other tea that I enjoy is “Chai Tea”, I have that maybe once or twice a year. I usually have it when I want to drink something sweet, but I don’t want to be feel unhealthy either.

If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?

I think it would have to be the yellow/amber light on a traffic light. It’s a kind of traffic sign right? I feel like I’m constantly having to slow down, even though I really don’t want too and then have to stop, even though I really don’t want too. I want to keep going, I don’t want to stop, because when I stop I’m not making money,lol. I don’t have the ability to either keep going or just take off.

What are a couple of things could people do for you on a really bad day that would really help you?

  • Bake me a lasagna!
  • Not pay me out while I hug my plushies =P
  • Not keep talking to me once the ear phones have gone in!

Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do do?   Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed.

Wooo, this is a good one. There are quiet a few things I would love to be able to do. I would love to be a Gymnast. They are incredible, they are so athletic and I love the whole jumping and making it look flawless and like it’s no effort.
