I’m sleeping in folks!

I am actually writing this on Thursday evening because I know that I’m sleeping in. I have not had a good sleep in in months. I’ve been house sitting, dog sitting. Even the weeks I wasn’t working, I still had to act like I was going to work the next day. You see, we get called in a lot and don’t really have set shifts a lot, we usually lucky if we get one in the quiet time. So you go to bed at a good time and make sure you still get up decently.

Even if this article says it’s bad for you to sleep in…I’m still going to do it!

When was the last time you had a really good “sleep in”?! I would love to know, something fun for me to read when I eventually can drag myself out of bed.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?

Being truly happy, I don’t think that you can have fun unless you really truly feel happy. There was a group of people that I used to get REALLY drunk with and I honestly believed for a while it was because I was happy. Then I started to realised that I was drinking because I was extraordinarily bored with these people, it was the same conversations, the same “cliches” over and over again. Don’t get me wrong I still drink, but I haven’t been “drunk” in a long time and I can definitely go a whole night out without a drink and have way more fun that I used too. I haven’t “needed” to get drunk in a long time.

What is your favorite time of day?

Around about an hour before I go to bed. Now when I say “Go to bed” I generally am in my bed but I’m not going to sleep. I’m either reading or watching some tv before then. It helps to come my mind and if I’m feeling down or something, I can watch a comedy and relax my mind. I cannot watch a horror film before bed,lol

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want have a evening with?

I’m going to go with an “alive” person, still doesn’t make the choice any easier though,lol … I think though honestly it would have to be Orlando Bloom mainly because I’ve had a crush on him my my whole life. Well it feels like my whole life it seems.

What do you do to make a living or during the day if you are retired.  If you are a student what are you studying?

My main source of income is through working our local Tafe (which is kind of like America’s College’s). It’s only casual work so I can go from working all five days to no shifts at all. Since they’ve hired a bunch of new casuals, I’m getting even less shifts than I did before. So I’m looking for something else now. I also do Volunteering and I just finished my studies. It’s been really weird not having any homework, so now I’m doing more crafts. Hopefully will be able to make money from it if I get good enough!

Have you ever participated in a distance walking, swimming, running, or biking event? Tell your story.

No, I know a LOT of people who do those sorts of things every year. However, because I don’t have a license I walk around a lot. I also have a xBox Kinect and I play a lot of dancing games on there.

What is usually your first thought when you wake up? 

It honestly depends where I wake up,lol…My partners bed actually gives me a bad back,lol. So when I wake up at his house I tend to be in a little bit of pain. When I wake up at my house, I can’t lie, I feel good,lol.

30 Days of Gratitude…Days 8 – 14

(Well this one shall be very interesting since for half of it I’ll be at a family reunion).

Day 8: Alone – My mum is gone all weekend so this means that I have the entire weekend to myself! So far it’s been bliss (mind you though I’ve had to do homework all day). One of the things that I love at being home alone for a weekend by myself is the absolute solitude. Don’t get me wrong, living with my Mum isn’t all bad. Sometimes though you do a couple of days to yourself, so you can regather yourself back together. My mum has this habit of coming home and as soon as she walks through the door is complains. Sometimes, especially on bad days I actually dread her coming home because I know she’s going to complain about something and it makes me feel worse. I am grateful to have these rare moments alone.

Day 9: Study – I have finally managed to hand in a huge project and it was a huge effort to put since it was a topic I was not interested in and it took forever. Pretty much every spare day I had was taken up with it. This entire weekend I spent working on it and I have a test I really needed to study for. The reason I am grateful for my studies though is because not only is it helping me get into the career of my dreams. I am learning different things that help me in my work. At the moment we are learning how to make web Dewey numbers, every section of Dewey that I’ve learnt I’ve been able to then help customers out where I work. Sometimes work is busy so I don’t really have time stand back and learn.

Day 10: Drama Free: So there I was thinking what am I grateful for, because nothing really happened today…but there is something to be grateful in that alone…Nothing…Only two weeks ago I was angry beyond comprehension and my ex messing me about was beyond horrible. He made me feel worthless and the pain he had and was putting me through meant nothing to him. Like he didn’t care whether I was dead or alive and then he speaks so condescendingly to me….To NOT have anything like that in my life, is calming and beautiful.

Day 11: Single-hood – So I had a HUGE test today on my toughest subject. After the tests on this subject, my brain is completely fried and I fall asleep where ever I am. It was in this moment that I’m grateful that I don’t have children and I can rest easy. I’m also grateful because though by the time I have children I will be an expert on the subject, have a good job because of my studies and be able to comfortably provide for my children.

Day 12: My bed – I know this seems like an odd one, but I am very grateful to have a bed that I can get into a night and feel safe at night. I can dream at night, feeling safe with a roof over my head and safe in my bed.

Day 13: Brother – My brother came back today to visit us as we going on a family reunion trip this weekend. The reason I am grateful for my brother isn’t because he’s done anything amazing for me. He’s done great things for me, but the reason I am grateful to have the brother that I do is because he reminds me constantly what a MAN is. My brother is a Drag Queen, and a seriously good one at that too. He has won many Australia awards for the work that he had done. While I have all these “straight manly men” telling me that a man is only a man if he has a beard, or if he has big shoulders…My 6’4′ gangly brother is being a man, by being who he truly is. He is a constant reminder that a man is not made by what is on his face (neither Steve McQueen or James Dean had a beard can I just say too) or what he hides behind. A man is a man because he has the strength to be who he truly is. THAT’S a man!

Day 14: Family – By the time you read this I will be with my family at our family reunion. I LOVE my family we are all so different but we love each so much. It’s our differences that hold us together. A round up on the “labels” of people that will be at this reunions are: gay, straight, religious, athletic, creative, intellectual, spiritual. Yet, I can guarantee that we will have the most amazing time. From all of my other friends I know how incredibly lucky that I am too have the family (mothers side) that I do…My Dad’s side, don’t even talk to each other.
