I Like You…Because you are awesome!

Apparently Kanye West has trouble answering why he likes Trump SO much…

You know this guy…

Seems to have trouble several times answering WHY he likes Trump…Even though he has actually been asked this question before. It should be THAT hard of a question. Even if he hadn’t before, it’s really not that hard of a question to answer, surely? The guy who said George Bush doesn’t care about black people. The guy who has a statement for literally EVERYTHING…Can’t talk?

I have never liked Kayne West, but damn, hopefully the African American community WILL care about his silence … My current pinned tweet on my Twitter account.

Dear The silence on a simple question IS deafening, your silence to a “leader” who dictates that NFL players HAVE to stand for the Anthem, while they die in the street by those who are supposed to protect IS deafening. Your silence IS your answer.

I should stop letting him get to me so much, but his silence IS dangerous!

So, let’s chat

Tell me about you

So, lets chat some time, over coffee maybe?

(No really, let’s chat some time)

*Please feel free to do this!*

As my Blog is expanding, it occurred to me that not too many of my readers know that much about myself. So I have found some questions, ones that I think are a good lucky top 7, so that you can get to know me a little better.

1. Are you named after anyone?

I am! I am named after the Hollywood Golden Age actress “Lauren Bacall

2. What’s the first thing you notice about people?

Honestly, the first thing I notice is their hair or what they may be wearing. It depends what stands out more at the time. I have noticed an increase in people getting crazy and more creative with the colour that runs through their hair and sometimes it can be with amazing results!

3. When was the last time you cried?

I have cried several times over the last week, but before that it honestly has been such a long time since I cried. I have a major frustration going on right now and it is affecting everything else in my life, but I have no control over it. I have been getting considerably less hours at work, which then, if I’m not getting paid, affects lots of other things. What’s making me the angriest is that it is clear “favourites” are being played in the situation here. It’s affecting my confidence badly as well. It upsets me because I work my butt off.

4. What’s your favourite cereal?

I don’t actually eat a lot of cereal for breakfast. I don’t usually have breakfast, other than a cup of coffee (I know, it’s bad!) Sometimes I will make myself a smoothie! If I do have cereal in my cupboards though it’s usually because I eat it throughout the day, kind of like a snack.

5. Can you cook?

I can, but it’s like my situation at work…No one believes in me. I can definitely cook though and every now and then I’ll get creative and experiment. I’m just not that “into” cooking. My major problem is everyone around me doesn’t like how slow I am, and like to point out every time I do something wrong. It definitely doesn’t help. Other people will literally will just grab whatever is in my hand and take over…But then tell me I don’t know how to cook.

6. How do you want people to feel when they read your words?

I hope when people read my words a sense of joy and hope. Even if my post is not a positive one. I believe every day we learn a new lesson, not just learn something new, but also a new lesson. Even if it’s something really small.

7. What does the meaning of this life, mean to you?

To me the meaning of life is to have as happy one as you, no matter the circumstances. Every body on this planet has a different story to tell. We’re kind of like snowflakes really, no two are the same.

Liebster Award

I was tagged in this by the awesome Bookmark Chronicles (go check them out, seriously a thought provoking fun time!) who herself was nominated by the lovely The Melodramatic Confessions of Carla Louise. This award was originated by Curious Queendom (who is an amazing writer!) Please check out all these awesome ladies! ❤

The Rules:

  • Thank your nominator and tag them in your post(s).
  • Answer the 11 questions given to you.
  • Nominate however many blogs you want with less than 1000 followers.
  • Ask your nominees 11 questions and let them know on social media

  1. Who do you write for? Myself, like Bookmark Chronicles this is purely something I like to do something for enjoyment. In a way it’s like having a diary for me. Except the difference is (it’s public) but it’s more about stuff I’m learning about, things I’m interested in and to see who else in interested.
  2. Why do care about this particular audience? Well they seem like a swell bunch of people.
  3. Why did you decide to start your blog? I think I’ve mentioned before I actually started this as a school project. We had to investigative all different forms of social media.
  4. Who hurt you? While I’m not sure what being hurt as to do with a blog, other than perhaps if you’ve been hurt and you have a “single” blog maybe? One of the reasons though I’ve enjoyed Blogging is no one tells me what I Blog is “wrong”. Unlike my Facebook status where everyone tells me constantly “You shouldn’t post that”.
  5. Who is your biggest fan? I don’t know, I honestly don’t know.
  6. What is your favorite blog? Why is it awesome? I don’t like this question either,lol…I really like Blogs for different reasons. Sometimes I read certain Blogs when I’m down, when I need to be “fired up” and be inspired.
  7. Who inspires you and why? Oh wow that is an interesting question! I get inspired by different people for different reasons (Yes, I am one of THOSE people). There is music that inspires me, fictional characters and real life actors that inspire me. Books, Art…Everything inspires me!
  8. What makes you different? Can I just say that I LOVE what Bookmark Chronicles wrote for this answer, because I feel like that a lot as well. I guess the other thing about me though if that I’m incredibly laid-back, but I cannot stand any injustices. That seems to be a trait in the females in my family though.
  9. What makes you like everybody else? I hurt too…Oh that was lame,lol.
  10. What is your biggest dream? To feel satisfied and at the same time to contribute to daily life and other causes with no problem.
  11. Do you think you’ll ever accomplish your greatest dream? I really hope so!

What issue IS black and white to you?

I think you should all head over to the Kindness Blog, they are a great Blog! They recently made a post (the oirignal source was from Reddit):

“Source: What issue IS black and white to you? (25 Answers to That Question)

Reddit – What issue is Black and White to you?

My readers, what issue is Black and White to you?

My Black and Issue is this and you will see at the bottom of this page one of those reasons why:

“If an animal is classified as “endangered” or at the rate it’s being killed at is potentially becoming endangered it should automatically be illegal to hunt and kill them! No matter where it’s ‘legal’ to do so, it should just automatically be illegal everywhere! To me that makes sense,lol. That’s my black and white issue =D”

A long weekend…

So it’s a long weekend here in the Down Under country and I have got a few things happenings this week, seeing people that I haven’t seen in quite a while. (Which had nothing to do with my previous relationship, I just haven’t seen these people all year).

However yesterday was the last time I have ever expected to “talk” (I use that term very loosely, very hard to have a conversation with someone who wont talk back) or see my ex ever again. There was one question that I needed an answer too and he did give it. I think though he’s answer didn’t really explain why he had started to treat me so badly AFTER we broke up. I have never before had to beg anyone to talk too me and I have never had to stop being friends with an ex so soon after we broke up. I have honestly been appalled and disgusted by my ex’s actions, but when people ask me why do I think he’s done it…All I can say is…I honestly don’t know.

What I can say though with 100% certainty is that it is on him and it is absolutely not a reflection on me or the type of person I am. I feel so happy about this. For 30 years I have struggled to feel good about myself and I can finally be at a place where I can say “Nope, it’s definitely you”lol…I am not a bad person and do not deserve to be treated as such, I might like you, but I like myself best =D
