Slight Blog Post Freak outs

I don’t know about anyone else, but I can usually have between 5-10 post all scheduled and ready to go. When that number starts to drop, I start to worry a little and then put pressure on myself to write a good post, ready to go. I felt like this all week last week, I was struggling to find inspiration. Over the weekend though, I managed to get the count back up again.

Do any of you get this feeling too? You just hit a blogging wall and that’s it. You can’t get it back there for a bit!

Share Your World – 25/2/19

QUESTIONS:

What, in your opinion, is the point to life?

I think the point to life, is to find YOUR point of life. Too concentrate to the point for your life, to find our point to life.

What was your most recent lie?  You don’t have to get really specific obviously.

I lied to someone recently who asked me if I was alright. I’m not 100% but this isn’t someone I want to know anything about my life really. I’ve got a bit of a bacterial gut infection and I mentioned on my Facebook that I was sick and they were all “Are you alright”? So I told them I was just getting my yearly cholesterol check. Which wasn’t a total lie, but it wasn’t the only thing I was there for. I did that wrong anyway now. I had a cup of tea…with…WITH…sugar an hour before I went -.-

What country do you consider the strangest?   (it’s all In fun folks, ALL countries may seem strange to outsiders)

I have actually visited America a few times and I still think it’s one of the strangest countries, especially for being a “first world” country. Whether you include Trump and that whole situation. It amazes me how you could probably have states as nations, they are just THAT different from each other. You look at something like Scientology, for example. We actually do have that in Australia, just nowhere near the scale it is, in America. We actually had politicians fight it (look up Nick Xenphon) I don’t think they are tax free here anymore. Whereas America is more all freedom of religion, even when it’s more than obvious that a “Religion” is a money making scheme. Like, I almost actually get NK and Russia. Simply they are Dictators and not very nice people. American, it’s such a mixture and they don’t know how to get along. It’s their way, or it’s the “wrong way”.

What’s your funniest story involving a car?

I can’t honestly think of any, mainly because I get my anxiety issues from travelling. If something very funny has happened to me I don’t honestly remember it, but I have loved reading others!


GRATITUDE

Do you have something you’re very thankful for or that showed immense kindness toward yourself or someone?

I think my coworkers are just the best! I am not working in my “dream job” persay and I’m not sure that I’d mind working where I am right now, for a very long time. One of the great things about where I work, I get a chance to Blog too! If I come up with an idea for a post, I can at least get it started.

Three Things about Myself:

  • I have a shoe box full of things that when I’m down, I’ll play with. It wasn’t until recently that I realised that the shoe box is called “Therapy”lol.
  • There are two movies since I can remember that I watch at least once a year “The Red Shoes” and “The Beatrix Potter Ballet” film.
  • I want to foster animals…If I ever win the lottery I will open up my own animal foster care centre.

My Best Posts:

Happy Birthday Baby brother!

I can’t keep Calm! =D

Molly’s questions:

  • Do you have any favourite festive reads? if so, what are they?

I don’t really have any festive reads that I read around this time of year, but there are a lot of Christmas specials on the television that I like to watch. I don’t think that they even had them played last year.

  • Who is your all time favourite book character?

Oh wow, I don’t think that I even have one character that I can think of. There are just way to many for me to pick one. I guess the first person I thought of was Arwen from LotR, both books and films. She is everything I aspire to be.

  • Are you planning on posting Christmassy content in December?

Possibly…I’m not sure yet. I want to post happy and motivating posts in the last couple of weeks. I enjoy New Years, but I feel like renewing is more around the time of your birthday than actual New Years (except of course if New Years IS your birthday).

  • What is the one book you would recommend to anyone?

I’ve only read this year, but I would highly recommend “Circe” by Madeline Miller. It is fantastic! Even though I’ve already read it, I have actually asked for it, for Christmas as well.

  • Do you have any Christmas traditions?

Only really have a couple. We usually put our Christmas tree up on the 1st of December, but take it down 12 days after Christmas. The other one we have is, the adults on our Mums side do a secret Santa, we wrap the presents in newspaper. Helps keep it more secret, but my Grandfather actually started it when he though it was a waste of money to wrap it paper that you just chuck out.

Share Your World – 17-09-2018

Here’s Our Questions for This Week’s SYW:

What Is Your Favorite Beverage?  (for those who really dislike “favorite” questions, hey, time to time, one just pops in and will not be denied).

I go through phases where I’ll like and be almost obsessed with drinking just the one type of beverage. At the moment it’s Lemon, Lime and Bitters. I think it’s because it’s definitely (too me) a fun Spring type drink.

What Is Your Interpretation of ‘The Golden Rule”?  Are there ramifications to breaking it?

I believe that the “Golden Rule” means ultimately what you think of “how you treat others” is.  Do you believe in Karma, do you believe to treats others how you’d want to be treated, or does it not matter to you? I recently wrote a blog post about Karma and how you shouldn’t expect Karma to go the way you want.

Sunrise person or sunset person?   

I am both…Although I have only seen the sunrise, maybe once or twice in my whole life. It’s funny because since I’ve had my anxiety attack I hate seeing the sun gone down now. I feel better when the sun is up.

Do people in modern society anthropomorphize animals too much? 

I think we do, but I also think that it can’t be helped. Some of the videos on YouTube, they seem SO like us. I think it’s what gets animals into trouble as well though. Naive ones amongst us forget that they are animals. Even the pet dog and cat, they are still animals. With a whole bunch of different instincts and feelings.

and finally

What Were You Grateful For During the Past Week?    

I’m grateful for all the sane people in my life,lol

This Week’s Questions:

Are You A Better Listener or Speaker?

I am definitely a better listener, people come to me a lot with needing someone to listen to them. Speaking, my brain tends to go faster than my mouth, so it’s makes no sense. One of the reasons I love to Blog, I can write what I am thinking. Then can rewrite or edit if it’s all jumbled up.  Sometimes I can think faster than I write as well!

If You Were Asked To Design A Warning Label That Would Be Tattooed On Your Skin, What Would It Say? 

(Credit for this question goes to a blogger I’ve just started following.  You can read more about her by clicking here. )

I’m stealing a quote here “And though she may be but little, she is fierce”

What Are You Passionate About?

I think I am passionate about anything that is creative. Anyway to look at something in a new way. I love coming up with new new ideas that I can use creatively.

If You Could Change One Thing About Your World, What Would It Be?

I wish that I wasn’t such a bad procrastinator! I am probably one of the worst, you’ll ever meet! I’ve got all these projects started and then…that’s it. I wish I could change that about myself.

And Finally:

What Gave You A Reason To Smile This Past Week?   

I started a diary, one that you actually write in, not like a Blog. A personal diary.

Thank you:

Thank you SO much to Victorious Pages for nominating myself. I really enjoyed doing this one, especially when I went and found out what my Patronus is. Please go and check them out!

My Questions: 

  • What’s your Patronus?

I did the actual test for this… https://my.pottermore.com/patronus … Mine is a tiger =D I have no idea what that actually means though.

  • Which is the best and which the worst book you’ve read so far in 2018?

The best book that I have read so far has to be Circe. It kept me hooked and entertained, I read it within a week. I just sat and read it. The worst has to be, unfortunately, “The Secret Adversary” by Agatha Christie. As beautifully written as it was, I just couldn’t stand the two main characters, I felt like I made no connection with them at all.

  • You find a genie that can grant you three bookish wishes. Which three do you choose?
    1. That I can step into the book that I’m reading. 2. That every book I read, inspires me in some way so I finish all the books! 3. Too stop people from interrupting me when I’m reading a book!
  • Kiss, Marry, Kill: choosing from your latest read, which character you’d kiss, which one you’d marry and which one you’d kill?

So the most recent book I read was “Circe” by Madeline Miller, and it was fantastic!
Kiss) Would be Circe, it’d be an interesting experience I think to kiss a “Goddess”/Titan. Marry) I would Marry Odysseus son as well! Telemachus, what a man, what a man, what a mighty fine man!
Kill)
All of Circe’s family, I am not even kidding, they are horrible!

  • Which movie/tv series turned out to be better than the book?

Hmmm, this is a tough one because there are a couple of movies that I think are just as good as the book. I’ve noticed that tv series don’t tend to do as well as movies though. That may just be me more though. Lord of the Rings, for example, I LOVE the movie. I think though that Peter Jackson did such epic work. It might actually be the only one I like more than the books, but only because they are so long!

  • Would you ever consider creating your own YouTube channel? If yes, would you stop blogging?

I do enjoy making videos, I think though if I started a set YouTube channel. I’d still continue blogging because I enjoy Blogging just a little bit more.

  • Of all the bookish subscription services that exist out there, which one is your favourite and why?

I have bought a couple of Fairy Loots subscription boxes. I tend to find that subscriptions boxes are such a hit and miss, no matter what the subscription box is about. If I could find out in advance, I’d probably buy more.

  • Most anticipated read for the upcoming months of 2018?

All the books that I cannot wait to read are all coming out just before Christmas. All of them! The new books by Cassandra Clare “Queen of Air and Darkness”, a new one by Jodi Picoult. I have already told people these will be on my Christmas list this year! I am so excited for Christmas this year, I had better get them!lol

  • Would you ever try writing a book? If yes, what genre?

I actually am writing right now, I have been writing it on and off for about three or two years. I don’t think it’s even a quarter of the way through. I do it completely for pleasure as well. I tend to write it when I’m by myself, at night and I drink. I love listening to Celtic music while I write. It’s all based on a PSP game I played years ago.

  • If you could live in any fictional universe, which would you choose, and why?

Middle Earth – Tolkiens World. What I’d do to live there!

  • Have you reached your Goodreads goal yet?

I have not reached my Goal yet, but I am ahead and I have three books going as I write this. I think I am going to be able to meet it pretty well.

Weekend Get Aways

Just a quick message to let you all know that I am away for a couple of days with my family. I originally was going to leave and join them on the Saturday. Now it seems I HAVE to join them today, on Friday, as well.

I have a couple of posts scheduled, so I probably wont respond to comments and such till I get back on the Sunday.

If it seems like I’m annoyed, I am,lol…I do love my family, but I didn’t want to spend SO much time on a houseboat. I’m worried about my anxiety and what if I have a panic attack, it’s not like I can just get into a car and drive to a hospital. I also get river sick. I know this because I’ve been on a house boat before and I felt ill and the weather is way more choppy than it was that time…

I can either go and not have fun…or I cannot go and then be yelled at for the rest of my life -.-

I swear if my Mum keeps asking me “Are you okay”…She will get slapped! It’s like when people keep saying “Are you mad?”…’No’…”Are you mad?” That kind of thing…

Wish Me Luck!
