27…My favourite place in my city….
I knew instantly in my head where my favourite place is in my city, my head honestly went straight there. I am very lucky in that there are some extremely beautiful beach towns and places and in my city. I am actually organising a room at one of these places for New Years. It’ll be Summer and they have fireworks on the beach we’re going too. We haven’t booked the rooms yet, but when tax time happens. I’m hoping to have enough money to book them (I should). We have some completely gorgeous beach towns, they are probably not as well known as Queensland, but every Summer time (Dec-Feb here) the beach towns are always booked.
Also though not being Queensland is something to be grateful for, because unlike a lot of the other major cities in Australia. You can plan things in the last couple of months. Rather than needing to organise your holidays nearly a year in advance. I went to Sydney for New Years once and my best raved how great it is on New Years…I honestly didn’t find that to be true. It was overcrowded and no space to sit and then trying to get home…It took nearly 3 hours to travel 30 minutes usually, just for a 15 minute firework display on the Sydney Harbor Bridge. That’s ridiculous and there is definitely not enough public toilets in the mean time either.
Share Your World … Week 31
What is your favorite part of the town/city you live in. And what Country do you live?
I love our beaches, we have this beach town and during the Summer it’s such a vibrant place. I love going there as the sun is setting and just looking out over the ocean, it’s amazing. I could walk down the beach at that time of the day forever.
Would you rather wear clown shoes every day or a clown wig every day?
I would definitely want to wear the clown shoes every day, wigs can get so itchy and really uncomfortable, especially during the warmer weather. The shoes I would probably trip over a couple of times…But I do that already anyways!lol.
Which way does the toilet paper roll go? Over or under?
Always over, over! OVER!
What do you do to make a living or during the day? If you are retired what mostly occupies your day? Or if you are a student what are you studying?
I work casually, I help students enrol into classes, set up their fees, that kind of work. I’m trying to look for more stable work because I want to move in with my partner and I don’t want to be a burden. The work I do, I love the people I work with, but when the season get quieter, I don’t get as much work. I’m also thinking of having some kind of little on-the-side business, something crafty…I’m still thinking about what to do with that.
Share Your World – 2015 Week #29
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a ballet dancer when I was little, I still love to dance, but I love Latin dancing more than Ballet these days. I think it was more about being on stage and getting to dress up.
What was your favorite food as a child? Do you eat it now?
I was always a weird one, I actually used to really enjoy my vegetables and I LOVED my banana’s. I swear that I eat worse now than when I was a kid.
If you were invisible, where would you go?
I think honestly I would go to the beach and just there for a bit and just enjoy the view (apart from the fact that it’s the middle of Winter here right now) Sounds like a great plan!
Would you rather forget everyone else’s name all the time or have have everyone for your name all the time?
I would rather have other people forget my name all the time, I would be horrified to forget other peoples name! I AM horrified when I forget people’s names,lol
Here are your questions for this week
What’s your favorite charitable cause and why?
I donate to a few, but the one that I love donating too is our Guide Dogs. I have a special soft spot to animals just in general, generally because they are way kinder than humans and they cannot speak to us, so we have to listen to them even harder. Animals can bring comfort and a special kind of friendship to those who are blind.
What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?
Oh this is an interesting, there are two colours that I feel most comfortable wearing. When I went to look nice but remain comfortable and more “inconspicuous” I like to wear Blue. When I want to stand out though, I love wearing Red. I have had many people say that “Red” is my colour.
If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? (guest can be dead, alive, famous or someone you just know) Good Question! (Took me a while to think of some answers)
- My Great Grandfather, not only do I miss him SO much, but he had such an interesting mind! Very ahead of his time.
- Gene Kelly (just LOVE him).
- Oprah…I think she’s interviewed and covered the most interesting topics and people, she’s had an very interesting life. I believe she’s got a very interesting and open mind.
List: What are at least five places you’ve enjoyed visiting?
- Queensland, beautiful people and beautiful place…Always semi-warm too!
- Arizona and the UK (I’ve put these two together because I’ve family and friends in both these places).
- Our local Zoo … I know that Zoo’s keep getting a bad rap lately, but the really good Zoo’s (like my local one) are great educational and awareness tools!
- I love going to the beach when it’s nice and cool, not to hot and not too windy either!
- Then there’s my “secret place” it’s a couple of hours drive and when I go there I tend to stay the entire weekend.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
