A Friend Pt 2

Well I am actually writing this in a word document today, because for some odd reason the letter “R” will not work on my WordPress…Odd, huh?! It’s just randomly working on and off…Just the letter R.

So this post today is supposed to be about another friend who I am grateful for. However, since I made the first post about being grateful for a friend, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve had some serious issues with my friends over the last couple of years. When I wrote Part 1 I talked about people who you wouldn’t necessarily call friends in the traditional sense, but more about people who support me and I them. The live feed that I watch called “Safari Live” I talk to them more than I talk to my friends that I can see any time and the talk is always cheery. Even when the death of a popular animal has occurred, we all understand and how devastating it is too lose one of the animals we watch pretty much daily. There is very few people in my “real life” that could even come close to understanding that.

I’ve also talked previously about how I don’t even think I actually have a “best friend” anymore. So it’s hard to talk about being grateful for a friend, when I’m struggling so much with those particular relationships.

I am really struggling to write anything to be grateful for…Oh this is terrible.

I still can’t think of anything to write,lol

How many languages do you you speak?

I only speak the one language, unfortunately. I can say bits and pieces of German, but they are very small  bits and pieces. I can count to 10, say good morning and good night, mother and father and that is it really.  I would love to be able to speak another language, but I struggle with English as it is,lol.

What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?

  • Reading: Hindsight by Melaine Casey. I’m actually reading 3 different books right now,lol
  • Watching: I’m not really watching a series or anything right now, I have a lot of stuff taped though that I’m getting through.
  • Listening: I’ve been listening too  a lot of Fantasy and Celtic type music. I’ve been getting back into meditating, crafty things and I find this kind of music helps me to keep creative.
  • Eating: I’ve been trying to eat a lot more healthy at the moment, I’m hoping it’ll help with my anxiety issues. I think it actually is making a difference, I am noticing the differences, because I am now aware of the differences.

What was the last photo you took with your phone?

What is your favorite time of day?

This can depend on the day as well honestly, if I’m not working I enjoy the actual day, especially when I’m doing chores around the house, or I’m doing things that make me feel like I’ve done something with my day off. On the day that I’m working or get called in (because I’m a causal) my favourite time would be between that time when you first get home and that time when you’re start getting dinner ready.

This or That? #90

This or That? #90

This week Bookmark Chronicles would like to know:

This week I want to know if you have ever read books by any of the following authors:

  • Danielle Steele
  • Harlan Coben
  • James Patterson
  • Nora Roberts
  • John Grisham
  • David Baldacci

I have to be honest I have never really read a Danielle Steele book, I’m just not that into pure romance novels. I can completely respect though that she has done really well for herself though, it’s fantastic. I am just personally not interested in romance type novels.

I have mainly read James Patterson novels, as crime and how people think really do intrigue me and why someone may commit the crimes that they do. Which probably makes me sound a little creepy. If you read James Patterson books you can probably guess that I am mostly interested in his Alex Cross books/series, and that series of books includes “Along Came a Spider”. Which you might have heard of since it was then made into a movie which has starred Morgan Freeman and Tyler Perry as the detective, in different films.

Health

19. Health

In all honesty I have REALLY been struggling with this one, mainly because the last couple of years have been not great for me. I am talking about both physically and mentally my health has been all over the place and it’s only been the last couple of months I feel like it’s been getting better again.

Which makes it, as you can understand, hard to speak gratefully about Health, when I’ve been so unlucky with it.

I guess the one thing that I can say that I am grateful for, is that my body is still ticking. My body is still walking, I may have trouble with it sometimes, but it keeps going. I keep going…Which is something to be very grateful for, which I sometimes am. I can still trust my body most of the time. I am very lucky, that I am generally healthy and when it’s not I can handle mostly what it thrown at me, it keeps ticking over.

When you’re alone at home, do you wear shoes, socks, slippers, or go barefoot?

My feet get really cold whether it’s Summer or Winter, I must have really bad circulation or something. If you were to see me at home being myself with no one around I would most likely be wearing socks at the very least, during both warm and cooler weather.

What was your favorite food when you were a child?

I was a weird child, I actually really enjoyed my vegetables and I still enjoy eating Brussels sprouts. It’s funny because I don’t know why but I eat so much more junk food these days, probably something with it to do with being fast and easy ~.^ lol…I’ll enjoy the first couple of bites and then think “Why did I eat that?” Yet, when I eat vegetables or fruit, i seem to enjoy every bite.

Are you a listener or talker?

I am definitely a listener, I’m not sure if it’s because everyone I know is just louder than me or if that’s just the way I am too be honest,lol…It’s probably a little bit of both…I don’t mind being a listener though because I feel like that’s when I learn the most.

Favorite thing to (pick one):  Photograph?  Write? Or Cook?

I guess that I’d have to go with Writing, I love to do it and I really love doing it for myself especially. Every now and then I will just get in a mood and write, and write and write. I do also enjoy taking photos, but mainly of myself, my pets and honestly of scenery. All of which would probably bore a lot of people. Yet, sometimes the scenery pictures also get me motivated to write.

Weather or not?

18. The Weather

I am just going to start this post off by saying that I get that I wrote the “Weather” that was part of the point =P

It’s kind of hard to write about the weather and talk about what I’m grateful for because it is always changing, and at the moment there are so many fights going on about climate change…and how some people are fighting it, when it’s just a fact of life.

I guess the thing that I am most grateful for is that with each season comes a different kind of celebration. Also with weather comes different feelings, like how when you first start to see Spring again, that first whole day of sunshine and it isn’t too hurt. It just makes you happy. Even though Winter can make you feel completely miserable, is there anything better than being able to snuggle and curl up on a horrible day, with a hot drink?

The weather can be such an inspiration and help you to create new things. There are only certain things you can make at certain time of the years. Well technically you can make things at any time you want, but some things are just more suitable.

You can:

  • Cry in it
  • Run in it
  • Be inspired in it
  • Blame it for why you can’t go out
  • Be warmed up by it

Would you rather live where it is always hot or always cold?

Always hot (as long as it’s not too boiling) I could never ever live somewhere where it always cold, I think I would die. I am really not a fan of the cold, it’s horrible getting to and from work and then you have to try and make yourself warm. Thanks to my anxiety, I do much better when I can put the window down, and during Winter you can’t really do that.

Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself? 

I have always had long hair, the shortest that I’ve ever had is probably to my shoulders and that was because my Mum “accidentally” cut my hair all lopsided, so we had to keep cutting it to make it even.

What is your favorite month of the year?

Probably December, which surprises people a lot because it’s not my birthday month, but as I’ve mentioned in a previous post. Birthday very rarely go the way that we would like them too. I’m a big Christmas person though, I always enjoy Christmas. Even last year when I had to do a lot of my shopping online because of my anxiety, as I found it hard being in a very full shopping centre, I still enjoyed it…Mainly it’s the people. Also the weather is nice and warm, not too hot yet, but warm enough I can wear skirts and dresses and feel great.

What is the easiest way for your to learn something new?  By reading, by seeing and doing, in a classroom?

I have to kind of see it and do it myself as well, and I probably will take a few times to see it. It’s funny that this question is in here today. As I’m writing this I started training at a new job and I kind of felt thrown in at the deep end today. No one really explained to me how the phone works, the kind of enquiries they get over the phone, and they kept doing that too me! I was getting really annoyed, they didn’t even tell what was then hold and transfer button. All it would have taken is one time for me too see to get it. In all honestly when that happens to me, I don’t learn anything, I panic on the spot and take nothing in.
