Generation “Gap”

I’ve been trying to find this hashtag that I heard about last week, because there was tweet that sort of spoke to me and how different the generations are. Mainly because I completely disagreed with the tweet but also we’re not so different from the previous generation, we just have different “tools”.

 … One of the tweets got me because they said that

people used to travel on buses/trains without staring in phones…like psychopaths

Now this got to me because although most people now travelling with their phones or tablets. It is really different though? I can remember people reading books and their newspaper, or doing crosswords. I also don’t remember buses and trains/trams talking to complete strangers happily and bubbly, like it was the thing to do? I don’t know about anyone else, but I was taught to avoid strangers, especially when I was by myself.

So is having a piece of technology on a bus/train/tram really that different from having a book or a newspaper? Is it really more psychopathic?

There are different things between the generations, no doubt? But there are some that are just not that different to me.

“Get Over It”

I don’t think I’ve heard that phrase more than ever since Trump took office. I now that I say that I will try and not talk politics on here, but it’s that phrase that just annoys me SO much. I think it’s mainly because of all the people that gave Obama a hard time and wouldn’t “get over it”…The front runner on that one…Was Trump himself…I don’t get how they don’t see the irony. Trumps victory wasn’t even an landslide.

Also though I don’t think people should just “get over it”. We should never get over whoever is in charge of our countries, of the nations money, of the armies that protect our countries. We should always be questioning. We shouldn’t become complacent. I think I may have even have mentioned this before as a random thought. I think that’s has lead to a lot of things happening right now, we just assuming that it’s all going to get better and we’ll get through it.

It didn’t take one march for the Civil Right Act, it didn’t take one movie or one show, or one march to get marriage equality…Keep Going!

In all honesty…

I was talking to my mum a couple of days ago and we were just talking about how which people know us really well and how much do people ‘think’ they know us. It started me thinking. I’m always pleasant to people, people always comment on how kind I am and how patient I always seem to be. I know I have a guard though and I know that I have a real hard time telling people…well…a lot really.

It’s not as though I wouldn’t open up, if someone actually ask me. If someone asked me a question about myself, I would tell them, but I just can’t willingly tell you about me.

It made me think about who are we really honesty with, who truly knows us…All of us. If I was to die tonight, who would be shocked to discover things about me, have I said all that I wanted to say?

What about yourselves? Do you think people know everything there is too know about you? 

A good cleanout

So…I’ve been living in the house I am living in now for about 10 years so and the house before this one was larger. Meaning that we now have a LOT of boxes that have not been opened for a long time.

One of mine and my Mother’s goals this year is too clear out these boxes and see what we can get rid of. Now my Mum is always saying that they’re just my boxes and so I offered to start going through and after pulling out 4…That’s 4…of her boxes (I don’t know why she keeps telling everyone they are mine, when they are in her cardboard to even begin with) I finally managed to find my one…There’s possibly another one in there, but they are pretty much all hers.

Anyways, getting past that annoyance…It wasn’t easy to get to them either can I just tell you, because she’s put them all in her walk-in wardrobe, which has stuff on top of other stuff.

The first box that I pulled was full…just of full…of these books that I used to read all the time when I was teenager and some of my favourites that I haven’t read in year. The box also included a very random VHS tape of The Lord of the Rings. I took a few photos, just to show the collection…Oh, the memories they bring back…Especially the classic Judy Blume 3 in 1 books.
