I knew it!

I just want to say that I am Dog and Cat person…But this makes sense,lol

Which is smarter: a cat or a dog? This question has stumped experts throughout the ages and has been impossible to answer due to complex nature of intelligence of both the animals. Now, the researchers at Vanderbilt University have managed to come up with an answer by calculating the number of neurons in their cerebral…

Ancient Cities

Everyone who knows me and have been reading my Blog for a while knows just how much I love anything “ancient”. Although I am very happy with modern medications and we are more aware of how to be healthy. I think it’s just always a fascinating thing when you think about how much of the Earth we’ve discovered and we are still discovering things!

An ancient city has been discovered in the middle of the ocean

Ancient ruins in the middle of the Pacific ocean could be the remenants of a legendary race or dare we say….Atlantis.

Clips from the Science Channel series What on Earth? reveal images of a mysterious location just off the coast of the tiny nation of Micronesia.

The remote island of Pohnpei is home to the archaeological site of Nan Madol, yet very little is known about the area and the ruins that reside there.

A job is a job

48. Your Job

I have two jobs at the moment, I work as a casual at both places. I am actually looking to get a more permanent position, I can go a couple of weeks without any work…Which is not where I want to be. However being a casual has a couple of perks and you mainly make more money (when you get the work). So I have had to become a really good saver. I can also say no to work as well. If something happens, that I don’t have to work (but I don’t get paid if I don’t work).

I have taken the last couple of weeks to help recuperate and I feel like I’m getting stronger, so I’ve asked to go back. So far, they don’t really have any shifts for me. Which is a little frustrating, I want to get back into everything. Get back into a routine again. Work is good in that it gives you something else to think about. Instead of staying at home and going through a morning routine and then nothing else to think about for the rest of the day. There have been a few times in life where I’ve appreciated having work to go to instead of hanging around all day and thinking.

But you have to get the right job for you

Working in the Library is something that I’ve wanted to do for years and I am so happy to finally be apart of it. It’s taken me about two years to get that first foot and sometimes, that’s what you need!

Those Opportunities

47. Opportunities you’ve been given

*I probably should have written this one when I was going too. It got posted today with no words,lol*

The most grateful opportunity I automatically thought of was the opportunity that I was born into the family that I have been born into.

Bad and Good my family have shown me such a variety of life. My mums side are incredibly close and yet we are so incredibly different and at the same time we get on very well and we respect each other differences. I love being with them. Whereas my Dad’s side, as much as I do love them…They are all exactly the same and yet, cannot for the life of them, get along at all. Half the time they’re not even talking to each other.

It’s a very interesting dynamic.

It has shown me so much of the world and how I view it. How you can be different and get along, how you can be the same and not be on the same page at the same time…It’s really quiet interesting…My Dad’s side they say the exact same things, they are all pretty racist and gullible. YET, they say they are better than the others, when they don’t speak to each? It’s hilarious! If they knew that they are pretty much the same person (and believe me I’ve wanted to tell them) I think they’d be incredibly surprised.

A great example of this was of my Dad over this weekend. He said that I was not allowed to invite a particular Aunt and her family to my wedding (I’m not getting married by the way). They’re the “minority” because no one is talking to them from my Dads family. Yet my Dad and the ones he talks too would actually be the minority at my wedding. I haven’t seen anyone from that side for years (apart from this Aunt and her family) and everybody at my wedding know this particular Aunt and her family, they actually do call her their Aunt as well. The family members that my Dad talks too, apart from my Dad, haven’t even met my partner yet!lol

 

Black Friday

I just wanted to really say…PLEASE STAY SAFE!

I understand a good bargain just as well as the next person and it is one of the American traditions we have been picking up here in Australia, mainly just through the Internet though. I have seen some truly horrible videos when it comes to Black Friday…People have literally been killed…No gift or toy or product is worth it. I personally would prefer to have my family and friends alive, safe and healthy, then dead over a gift for myself or even for them.

Flashback Friday

I had forgotten about these two!

Comment: Lawyer offers  to help no voting couple divorce

Too break this story down for those who don’t wish to read it. When the debate first came up, that lead to the postal Same Sex Marriage vote. There was this one particular couple that made this very public proclamation that if the government decided to make “marriage gay” in even a little way, they were going to get a Divorce.

So now that the result has been Yes and the Prime Minister said that he will push it through (hopefully) before Christmas, a lawyer, has come forward and said that pro bono he will help get them a divorce.

This is what they’ve said now:

Earlier this week, the Jensens told Daily Mail they “just need to see the legislation and if it all goes that way.”

“Then we know what situation we’re in and what we’re going to do.”

They have also said they’d get a divorce, but they want to continue living together…Which is both a sin…and lawfully they have to be living apart for at least a year.
