Okay, next week…My website is going up. I am doing it! No more putting it off! Yes, money is a big part of it, haha =D
This week I completed a advanced spreadsheet class, as part of study that I’m doing. It was a big part of way I was putting it off. I realised how handy spreadsheets can be, especially when you’re doing something on your own. Like, there is SO much you can do! This next is going to be setting up a spreadsheet to help myself.
I also still haven’t been able to figure out how to cancel payments, or give refunds. Which is pretty important, lol.
As this posted, I will have gotten my first Astra vaccine today. So I am writing this in preparation of if I am feeling ill or anything like that, that I don’t want to go on any platforms later on. I was going to get Pfzier, but that was quickly booked up, with myself having no knowledge that we even could, lol…So I’ve had to go with Astra.
The laureates will be celebrated on International Literacy Day, on 8 September. September 8th was proclaimed as International Literacy Day (ILD) by UNESCO in 1966 to remind the international community of the importance of literacy for individuals, communities and societies, and the need for intensified efforts towards more literate societies.
What is Literacy?
Literacy is popularly understood as an ability to read and write in at least one method of writing, an understanding reflected by mainstream dictionaries. In this view, illiteracy would be considered to be the inability to read and write.
Books contain 50% more rare words than prime-time television.
The child who knows four nursery rhymes by age four will naturally be a better reader by age eight.
There are 5 types of literacy – Media, Cultural, Financial, Scientific and Information.
It is estimated between $106–$238 billion in health care costs a year are linked to low adult literacy skills. (America).
The average American reads 12 books a year, according to Pew Research, but that number is deceiving. The median number of books read per year in the United States is four, meaning half the country reads less than 4 books per year.
So yesterday, possibly the day before…Scotland passed a really great thing. Much to the disgusts of a lot of transphobes.
The results of Scotland’s second GRA Reform consultation have been published. A majority of organisations and groups that responded backed plans for gender self-declaration. And also Individuals support it by 55% as opposed to 40% against.
Sad thing, because of transphobic actions, David Paisley a defender of both women and the LGBT. Now he is in a position to have to leave Scotland, because of threats. Because he, like the majority of people are trans inclusive. So that for “crime” they literally doxxed him, and instead of going “Maybe we’re the baddies” They decided to make fun that they’ve run him out of a country, for his own safety.
It is interesting to note to myself though, that despite the TERFdom in Scotland, in the UK, Australia and the US. The countries that are currently being run by women, are all trans-inclusive. All are doing quiet well with COVID. So, right now, we are seeing the worst and the best of women. Which, for myself anyway, is interesting.
Well Done too Scotland though for passing the GRA for a second time (it past the first time too).
The International Day of Charity is this Sunday, but I figure there is no harm about talking about it now. After all what is the point of finding out about it ON the day? Because then what can you do! You might have things planned and what’s the point. Also though, every day we should all practice a little charity.
Charity has a huge scope of what one can do.
The date of 5 September was chosen in order to commemorate the anniversary of the passing away of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 “for work undertaken in the struggle to overcome poverty and distress, which also constitute a threat to peace.”
So what can you do?
The great thing about charity, is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to do it spread the Charity around.
Instead of going to those “fancy” stores – Choose a op shop or charity shop instead. They honestly do have some GREAT stuff. When I need new clothes, I go there first and so far, have never had to visit any “fancy” clothes store.
I would suggest considering making food for those who may need food in your neighborhood. However, I would research into what food they can actually eat first. You don’t make a lasagna, to find out that your neighbor is a vegetarian! lol
If you do want to do something for your neigbours, make sure that they even want it. I have a elderly neighbour and she is extremely independent. So she sometimes finds it a insult to be asked if she wants anything.
Again with the food, I’ve been seeing a lot of Afghan businesses helping the Afghan’s refugees coming into our country. My advice? Don’t wait until a horrible thing happens to help your communities, do it now, do it today. Get something going NOW, so when horrible things do happen. Life just keeps happening. Routine can help in a lot of situations.
If you have left over food, that you know you’ll never eat. Find out what centers are near you where you can drop some yummy food off. There are already charities that will send out food to those in need. Consider finding out if you can help in some way.
Be Kind to others. I wouldn’t call it “Charity”, but then again, you don’t know what strangers are going through. Heck, sometimes we don’t even know what we, ourselves, are going through.
Most importantly though, never do Charity to get a ego stroke. Never do charity to even get a “thank you” Do it, because it’s the right thing to do.
Like I said in a post last week, Trump Supporters are incredibly dumb, haha
Nothing to do with that post, but I had a response last week from a TS. What caught my attention though was when they said that because Pennsylvania, they’re going to do a audit in Texas…Because? Trump/Republicans won in Texas? Didn’t they?
Now from what I’ve seen the Arizona audit found only about 180 votes that were potentially “dodge-city” and that’s been the same result every time. Arizona have now done 4 (that’s four) audits. In Pennsylvania, there’s only one “law” maker who insists on a total re-haul, despite audits. So why would you even bother in Texas, where Trump actually won? Do I believe it? I do actually. I’m not looking this one up though, because I don’t want to know that Texas are spending tax payers on a audit, in a state where Trump actually won.
“Pennsylvania voters are wise to Mastriano’s shell game. A majority of Pennsylvanians believe Biden fairly won the election. These numbers reveal the ugly truth about the Pennsylvania fraudit: This is about Mastriano and his audience of one, not the voters.
The proposed Pennsylvania fraudit comes down to this: A deeply partisan politician is pushing for an audit that is as unnecessary as it is wasteful. And it will cost Pennsylvanians more than money; it will cost trust in the fabric of our democratic system.“

What I would love to do with this blog post, is talk about some of the creative creativeness I’ve been doing lately, and I would love for you to share anything that you maybe up too as well!
I don’t really know how many of you read my blog posts on a continuous level. However, every now and then I write about what my plans are for the future, just recently (I believe) I started to write about how I like to write things down and put them out in the public, so I end up doing them.
What this was mainly referring to was myself starting to learn to draw, which I am. I even bought myself a little sketch book.
Clearly one of my newest things is too stream, which you can watch my previous videos at my channel: Lady Lolsy – Twitch tv … Feel free to judge and critique, luckily I am really new so no huge views yet. I got my partner to watch and for some reason you can’t see my face when I play my games. Which at the moment is Sims 4.
I am also in the middle of making my cat a little house for outside, maybe for something inside too. My partner bought a new huge fancy tv, and the box is huge. While I have not much to do, I can do even more creative things.
I’m also doing my pen pals still. I’ll be trying to write them up and post them over the weekend.
An incredible 8 years I’ve been blogging, and my…haven’t we had someone fun!
The modern wedding 8th-anniversary gifts are linen and lace, which represent durability and intricate craftsmanship.
My goodness, it doesn’t feel like 8 years! It feels like less. Time flies when you’re having fun…
Does the Number 8 mean anything?
Of all the numbers in Numerology, the number 8 is the achiever and measures life by the goals it reaches.
Eight is a symbol of infinity and a constant flow of energy and power. It is often related to material wealth, money, and success in business. Also, number 8 is representing pleasures, and the dark side of this figure is just that – excessive usage of vices.
The number 8 is considered the luckiest of numbers in China and they believe the more 8’s the better.
I LOVE BLOGGING!!!
I ADORE blogging! When I hate Facebook, Twitter, Instagram…I can always rely on WordPress…Through WordPress I have developed my Discord channel for Book Readers, I found out about Goodreads. Through following other bloggers, I have been inspired myself to write again. By writing I don’t mean my blog (lol) but I have continued on with my stories. I try to write poetry, I have joined a few blogging challenges.
WordPress has the best interactive platform. I’ve “met” so many lovely bloggers, and I like to think of some of us as friends. Who one day, I hope to meet!
