You’ve got a great personality, kiddo

12. A personality trait you really like

*I’m just going to let you all know that this post is going to make me sound incredibly “up myself”

I guess in myself I have, which surprises me a lot, is “common sense” and I didn’t know what a great personality treat this is, until nearly everybody I know signed onto Facebook. One of the great things about having common sense is great at being able to lie back and have others make themselves look like a fool. They just don’t “get it”. A good example of this is when people say “Ban Sharia Law”…Because it’s already banned, you can’t ban what’s already banned…Unless you can double banned something?

It can be frustrating to get this and to watch others who clearly don’t have it. However, having this trait makes me feel incredibly lucky for what I do have. A lot of people who don’t seem to have it, just seem angry. They waste a lot of time fighting things that are just not important and aren’t even happening, rather than things that are happening. I honestly believe it is because they just don’t have common sense, so everything little thing is just “wrong” too them. Take the “banning sharia law” Why are you wasting so much time fighting somethings that’s just banned already? Why aren’t you fighting for things that are banned as well but shouldn’t be, like equality for gay marriage in Australia.

So, I guess it’s a personality trait that I like in myself and like in others well.

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? 

This such an interesting question. Mainly because how often do we all feel like we are not who we are? Sometimes and in some situations, I feel older than my age. Then other situations I feel about 5 (Beauty and the Beast coming out, being one of those moments). A lot of people think that I’m about in my early 20’s. I think this is too do with just my laidback type nature. Being happy makes me seem younger I suppose. So I would have to say if I didn’t know me, I’d probably think I was in my early 20s as well.

So, you’re on your way out and it’s raining. Do you know where your umbrella is or do you frantically search for it all over your apartment/house?

I know where one of my umbrellas is and it’s kind of cool. My mum gave my brother and I each for Christmas. That might sound like a weird gift, but the umbrellas are a bit different. There not as easily ripped, it’s hard to describe them without seeing them, but they are good quality umbrellas.

Do you recharge your energy by going out with friends for a good time or by spending with quiet time alone?

Time alone…Time alone always…I have been waiting for nearly months now to have an entire night to myself. It’s interesting, I don’t work full time, but I go to work all the time and haven’t had just a week off…From everything. I feel like I need that.

Name three things you and your spouse, partner or best friend  to have in common.

  • We can be together in silence, but still together.
  • We have a similar sense of humour, we know when to not take to each other too seriously.
  • We are both terrible procrastinators.

This week Bookmark Chronicles would like to know (and I would like to know as well)

Where do you get most of your books from?

Physical bookstores – Online – Secondhand book sales – Gifts – Book subscription boxes

(Can only give one answer!)

These days I buy a lot of my books online. I like to read the reviews of the book, all good and bad and then head online and buy them. I always feel so guilty though about it, because in my town, we don’t have the best economy in the world and over the last few years, we have had SO many book stores just close down. It is one of my goals though, this year, too actually get out and buy from actual bookstores…It would save a lot on shipping and postage!

I would love to know as well though where you all get your books from. See the different options out there.

Insipiration

11. Someone who inspires me

 I have decided to steer away from family and friends for this challenge this week and think of someone else who inspires me and makes me happy and safe, who isn’t apart of my “inner circle”. I feel like sometimes we don’t even think of the “random” people that are apart of our daily lives, that touch our lives every dayish.

So I wanted to give a major shout out to my hypnotherapist. I really love going to visit him and having our sessions and I always feel more accomplished and really do feel better after I’ve seen him. All the tasks he gives me to do, always make me feel better too.

What I really like…I guess love…About our sessions, I really feel listened too and that helps me feel better so much. Also though we actually have a lot in common, we both meditate, we both do Reiki. Unlike me though, he really does incorporate it into his every day life. Rather than when he needs it to help me. That’s what I want to achieve, I want to incorporate my beliefs into my every day life, not just when I “need” it…If that makes sense.

I know that this is his job and that’s what his…I’m…paying for him to do. I genuinely feel though he is doing this work because he wants to make myself and others feel better and get through their issues. Too help make our lives a little better and and easier to get through the day just that bit better. Just that though, he is there to help me and helps to make me feel better…It honestly feels like someone is finally on my side.

Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

No, I never would. I get to…well…paranoid that if I do that the elevator/lift would get stuck and then I’d get trapped in there and I do not want that to happen. I guess then I don’t think it makes it go faster, I believe it goes slower.

Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneous (for example if you are visiting a big city you don’t know?)

At the moment I really do suffer at the spontaneous, I need to have things planned. However, when I feel strong and my anxiety issues aren’t affecting I love to go out and do something, so that’s kind of spontaneous I guess? Even so, I did like to plan things even before my issues happened, I was always a planner, with random moments of spontaneous….very rare moments though.

Describe yourself in at least four uplifting words.

  • Listener
  • Loving
  • Tries
  • Inner

If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert? 

Oh my goodness, so many choices and they all have their own pro’s and con’s. I love looking out over an ocean and I do like hot tubs, but I can only stay in them for about 5 minutes before I start feeling sleepy. No desert though and only a ski resort if I don’t actually have to ski,lol. I cannot choose!

This week Bookmark Chronicles would like to know:

Have you ever heard of/read steampunk?

I have most definitely heard of Steampunk and I have even actually read a couple of Steampunk books…I think they have comics as well, in that genre?….I think?

I had a hard time getting into the books that I read, I kept reading them novels, but I don’t think Steampunk is the theme for me…I’ll leave it too the younger generation. I think it is definitely for people who are interested in that type of genre. The books that I read were not badly written or anything, I was just not interested in that particular theme.

The Makeup Book Tag

I found this awesome tag on Hot Shot Headlines (and you should definitely check them out) and considering how little I wear makeup, I thought that this would be great!lol…I usually wear make up if I have a lot of “things” on my face and I want to cover them, or if I’m going out.

Primer – Pick a book that left a lasting impression on you.

Playing Beatie Bow by Ruth Park.

Concealer – Pick a character you wish didn’t exist.

I don’t have a good answer for this one – I think most characters, if written well, should exist!

*While I agree with the above statement there is actually a character from a Jodi Picoult book, that I just don’t like. It’s also probably my least favourite Jodi Picoult and he is a big reason for that*. 

Nicholas from Harvesting the Heart – Jodi Picoult

Foundation – A favourite first book in a series.

Clockwork Angel/Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare.

Powder – Pick your favourite last book in a series.

Clockwork Princess/Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare.

Eyebrows – Pick a book you think everyone should read.

Any ancient classical reading, for example, The Odyssey, Art of War, .

Eye Shadow – Pick a book with your favourite colours on the front.

A Faery Guide by  – It probably sounds a little childish, I’ve had this book for years and the cover is just gorgeous.

Eyeliner – Pick a dark and mysterious book.

I have a book I swear! I have been trying to find it all weekend. It’s based on the premise on Andy Warhols “15 minute of Fame” and the lengths some people will go to get that fame and that kind of “being noticed”. 

Mascara – Pick a long book.

The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien … It’s just one book, it’s not split up like LotR, those are long even so,lol

Blush – Pick a book with a cringe-worthy romance.

I don’t really read romance  type books, I kind of find them all cringe-worth. 

Highlighter – Pick a book that brightens your day.

Not really a “book” but whenever I read “Archie Comics” I enjoy them a lot. #TeamVeronica =P

Lipstick – Your favourite book kiss.

As mentioned above one of my favourite series is Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare, and one of the reasons for that is the love between Tessa Gray and Will. (I still hate the ending of that series though).
