Sweet Freedom

Please press the link below and watch the heart warming story of Gajraj:

First moments of freedom for elephant, held captive for 50 years.

Too break it down for those who do not want to read it. This sweet story is about a “working elephant” called Gajraj, who was rescued by Wildlife SOS. After Gajraj was in captivity for over 50 years, as a “temple elephant” was finally rescued, being 70 years old. During Gajraj’s rescue over 500 locals threw stones while the wildlife rescue team took Gajraj away, bringing in a large police force to escort her. However, Gajraj arrived safe and well, for her new life of freedom!

Just Plain Pride =D

So I hear that overseas in America today, possibly yesterday, is the first day of Pride Month. I’ve been trying to find out if Australia had a specific month for Pride, because June is the beginning of Winter here. We don’t have a lot of parades, because the weather is just bad, but we still do “celebrate” Pride month during June.

The first Mardi Gras in Australia was held on 24 June 1978 at 10 pm as a night-time celebration following a morning protest march and commemoration of the Stonewall Riots More than 500 people moved down Oxford St, calling for an end to discrimination against homosexuals in employment and housing, an end to police harassment and the repeal of all anti-homosexual laws. They marched in honour of those after the Stonewall (link is too an Australia site regarding Stonewall) riots in 1969.

Now, I have a particular topic I would like to talk about quickly with you all my Pride that I have for my brother. My brother is probably the prettiest Drag Queen that ever has Drag Queened…Not that I’m completely biased or anything. He does do a lot of other Queens costumes and they are fabulous and you can catch him at:

Can I borrow a feeling?

Well I clearly and blatantly ripped that title off =P I started to write this post while having a drinky drinky night with a friend and how certain songs just bring out an emotion in us and no matter where you are, or how you are feeling, at the sound of that first note, you will instantly be triggered.

Below I have created a list of certain situations, that probably we’ve all found ourselves in at some point, but these are the songs that just trigger that emotion for me. The links are all to YouTube

  • Any ex partner:

Within Temptation: Angels

  • Those who are in my heart and have passed: (especially for my Great GrandFather)

Wishing you were somewhere again – Phantom of the Opera

  • That day I become stronger than what my ex partners did:

Titanium – David Guetta (Madilyn Bailey version)

  • The ex partner that is messed up on in the inside, so you can’t hate them:

Better Than Me – Hinder

  • When I first start falling in love … Nawwwwwwwww

Your Guardian Angel – Red Jumpsuit Apparatus … Sometimes I sing this to my pets,lol

  • The song I can’t even listen to when my heart breaks:

I can’t break it to my heart – Delta Goodrem

  • When I start to heal again:

Dancing with a Broken Heart – Delta Goodrem 

  • When I’m feeling “sexy”: 

Get Sexy – Sugababes  … I will strut,lol

  • Me…Right Now

Enough  – Delta Goodrem ft Gizzle

My question though is, what do you think about bean bags? There’s one I found recently and I’ve never had a bean bag before so I don’t what the “etiquette” is. I would love to hear some recommendations or any funny stories you’ve had with bean bags!

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
