My Nominations

  1. This year, for my birthday, I am determined to go to our most well known beach town and watch the sunset. See, the problem is my birthday is in the beginning of Winter, well end of April. So the weather is always horrible around my birthday. I’m thinking of doing it a couple weeks earlier than usual.
  2. I have always wanted to move like Jackie Chan…But who doesn’t? I think it’s the closest we can get to superhero…ism.
  3. Speaking of superheroes one of my favourite anti-heroes is Harley Quinn, but I absolutely hate her “relationship” with the Joker. I really do detest it. I also realised though she’s the only favourite female character I like that is blonde. All the other female characters I like, are brunette. My other favourites are Rogue (80’s XMen tv series/comic…They ruined her in those movies!) Tifa Lockhart (FF7), Belle (Beauty and the Beast).
  4. I realised the other day that the entire time I have known my current partner, I’ve been sick. When I first met him, I had a sciatica, then that dissipated. Then I had my anxiety attack, then after a bit more of a longer while, that “went away”. It’s definitely not gone just ‘easier’. Now I’ve had this stomach thing, which apparently is just a bug and I’ve been getting better. But I’ve had that since I came off my anxiety tablets.
  5. I am always up for a Disney marathon. Though, that one probably isn’t really that shocking.

International Women’s Day

What is it to be a woman? I don’t know, I don’t know if I’m grown up enough yet to be a “Woman” ~.^ Before anyone complains (not that any of my readers would, they have more common sense than that) there is a International Men’s Day too. This year it’s on Tuesday 19th November.

I think at this moment, it’s all just hard to be male or female, white or POC. Everyone’s too offended, everyone keeps getting frustrated that you can’t really have deep and meaningful conversation over Twitter.

Too be a woman right now, only from my personal perspective as one. Someone I actually don’t like very much actually said it best.  It’s interesting being a woman these days because by the same person we can both be a “whore” and at the same time completely “frigid”. As horrible as that sounds, and yes, woman are known for being multi tasked talented. It’s completely true.

We keep being called too emotional and then at the same time sociopath, if we’re not too emotional. My weird cousin called my mum that a few weeks ago, which is really funny when you know him. I don’t know if I ever told you readers, what my weird cousin did to my Mum (nothing physical) If he does it again though, I am calling the police whether my Mum wants it or not. Where I’m going with that though, we get called the complete opposites of each other. Even though usually it’s the other way around. For example, my weird cousin is the sociopath not her. He cheats, he stalks his partners, but he’ll go around telling everyone how they did it.

That’s what it’s like to be a woman…Exhausting, because other people who don’t know who we are, somehow, at the same time, we are the complete opposite of ourselves, but still told by others who we are.

Confused yet?lol

It gets better!I am sure men have experienced this too, but it’s happened to me a few times.

A few years ago now, I had just broken up with a real douche of a guy, who was dating someone actually really nice.  So it felt nice when I started to flirt with one particular person. Wasn’t interested in dating, wasn’t romantically interested in him. Just someone who was good at flirting. Now, there was another guy I was so not totally interested in at all and had already turned down at least three different times. One night my ex was all “She’d never sleep with the good flirt guy” so I did,lol … The deed was never completed because I wasn’t that attracted to him, and he did stop when I said, so that was all good.

I kid you not two…maybe three days later…I get tagged in a post on Facebook saying how girls always complain there are no good guys out there and end up dating the jerks, and all my guy “friends” including the guy I had already turned down three times and guys I don’t even know liked it. One even said “How does the burn feel”…WHAT BURN?  1) Still didn’t want to date anyone. 2) One night stands does not mean I promised to the guy and 3) I have never said that, because I know good guys, I just used to go for the party extrovert type, because I am not. What was even sadder was my ex-boyfriends new girlfriend was the only who stood up for me! I still appreciate that.

Fast Forward a couple of years later.

A younger more sexually, engaged already girl comes into the group. She swears, she pole dances everything I’m the opposite of really. I’d pole dance, but I have sciatic -.- She dates half the group, teases the other half, gets engaged twice, sleeps with her ex-finance best friends. Relationships ruined so badly that her brother isn’t allowed to talk to his own group of friends, the group he introduced her too. Yet, no public shaming. No, what is wrong with girls? And they still all really want her? Because god forbid they have the ability to be friends with two girls *rolls eyes*lol

That’s what it’s liked to be a girl…Exhausting, because you are never actually sure what you’re doing,lol…I had learnt from previous situations to just…

Didn’t question why she gets treated better than me, when she’s doing way worse things then me, she slept with a married man for pete sake. Just backed away. Haven’t really communicated with any of them since,lol…It was funny because they just played themselves. Why would I date anyone who called themselves a “good guy” and then tried to shame me into dating them. When they tagged me in that, I made a vow to never date anyone from that group ever again and I never did. Most of them are still single.

What’s it like being a woman? Constantly watching douche bags out douche themselves,lol

You can sleep with that person, not that one, that one. You’re too emotional, you’re a sociopath, you’re a whore, your frigid

Welcome to a woman’s world,lol

What Alice Forgot Review

I have not done a review for such a long time! I don’t think I’m going to be doing it the way I usually do either. I just really want to write what I thought, my likes and dislikes. I guess, in that way this isn’t really a review, it’s just some of my thoughts.

what-alice-forgot

Book Breakdown:

Imagine finding yourself, flat on the floor, in the middle of gym, complete strangers around you. Completely terrified you ask for someone to ring your loving, newly married, husband… Just too find out that you are getting divorced, have three children and have completely forgotten the last 10 years.

This is what has happened to Alice.

Positive Personal Perspective:

I thought that with a book that was about forgetting, I thought that I might become confused with the constant coming and back forth as (I thought) she might remember. I didn’t feel like I was getting confused at all. It’s one of those books written from the perspective of a couple of characters, and those can usually get quiet confusing, but I didn’t feel like that (until the ending).

Negative Personal Perspective:

I have to say I really did enjoy this book. The ending, I have to be honest, I got really confused  It almost felt like “Gotta finish this somehow” and then…I just became confused, I had to go back and reread what I had already read. I thought that somehow that there was just a huge tonne of characters being mixed up, or that I had somehow missed out an entire chapter. Turns out, it wasn’t, it was just the ending.
In hindsight, what lead up to the ending of the book, made the ending, make sense. I just don’t really read books going “I hope to have to reread this in case something doesn’t make sense, straight away”. It might be me being fussy, I like being able to understand straight away.

The End

However, apart from that one complaint, the rest of it was absolutely fantastic! It was a book that made me think, if something similar happened to you, would you want to even remember the last 10 years of your life? Despite everything you might miss, would it make you much more less bitter? Would it help you give a new lease to your life? Would it make you look at your current life a little different, and would you change just, a little on the inside. Would you decide to live your dreams from years ago? Every time I’d finish reading it a bit more, I would have all these questions in my mind, about my own life

Can you just…like…go…???

I don’t know how many of you watch Tennis…But, apparently it’s been on in Australia recently (I don’t watch it that much…if at all).

There’s this one player that annoys me more than most and that is Bernard Tomic. The last couple of years, he has been all over the place. That doesn’t bother me, what bothers me is his entire attitude. He keeps blaming mental health, but he’s a total…

(and no, I don’t mean a pair of mum jeans)

A couple of years ago he said that Tennis doesn’t interest him and he’s only in it for the money. Which I am sure is a HUGE part of it all. However, his attitude of “I don’t want to be here”…THEN DON’T BE THERE! Does he have any concept of lucky he is? Yet, he keeps getting attention??? He keeps going back? Now in the latest drama, he was told he wouldn’t be playing in the Davis Cup, because he threatened his Coaches and their families. Also though because Australian Tennis do not think Tomic represents Australian Tennis values…and he most certainly does not.
