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.

My nominations and the nominated questions:

  1. What two characters do you ship, why and do they even come from the same books?

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!

Random Acts of Kindness

Random Acts of Kindness

Kindness

Many thanks to Life Lessons from Around the Dinner Table for nominating my blog for this new award which was created by  MSW R. Thank you so much! I honestly got teary, sometimes I forget that my words can make an impact. If I could nominate you, I would!

Here are the rules:

Tell who you nominate and why.

Copy and share the picture that shows the award, posted above.

Share a paragraph of something that impacted your own life in the way of receiving kindness or how you extended kindness to someone else.

Nominate anyone or share to your own page. If you so choose to Participate.

Tag or pingback to the original person who nominated you, or the original post.

Just like with Kristian when I do have something good happen to me or I do something good, I have a hard time talking about it. I don’t like to boast about it either. Even though, usually, when we do something nice for others, most people are genuinely doing it because they want to do something kind for someone else…Usually…

Some of the things I either find bring kindness, or kind things I have done in the past are:

  • My mum doesn’t “love” her job. Every now and then (and when I can afford it) I’ll randomly send her flowers to her desk.
  • It may be irritating and you may think “Why Me” I find though when an “older person” wants to talk with you, it’s usually because they’re lonely and sometimes afraid. One time I was speaking to an elderly gentleman and he was on the way to the Doctors. He asked me to read a letter as he couldn’t read English well. He asked me if I could see anywhere on the letter if it said that he had cancer and he did not. I have never seen someone so grateful before! Ever since then I’ve not minded to speak with them.
  • More recently, I have been trying to get over my feelings of awkwardness if I see someone post how down they are feeling. I’ll post a picture or gif of a hug. Even if I don’t know them very well and have no idea what they are upset.
  • Saving a bee from the water, even though I’m allergic.

Also remember though Kindness does not equal weakness!

My Nominations:

*For my nominations I wanted to nominate all the Blogs that I follow that I consider to be kind. The only problem with that is all the Blog I read are kind, I wouldn’t follow anybody “nasty”. I have decided to go with some Blogs that I feel are fighting for people and are still responding to the haters with a lot more grace and kindness then these people deserve!*

Bookmark Chronicles – Bookmark Chronicles was probably one of the first people that I found and one of the first people that I followed on WordPress. I LOVE how she fights for POC, reminding and teaching us about History and the system. With so much grace along the way. The way she supports other Bloggers as well and how she writes…Beautiful!

Kindness Blog – I am a relatively new reader, but the Kindness Blog finds Kindness wherever they are writing about. If you are ever down and wanted something good to think about please read this Blog!

The Tony Burgess Blog  – I don’t think that there is a kinder Blogger than the Tony Burgess Blog. Even when he is not feeling himself, he still throws out so much kindness towards others…There is not way I could not nominate him!

What about you? What are some ways you show kindness?  How has someones act of kindness impacted you?

Thanks again, Rory!!

Love & Life Lessons,

Kristian

Be cool Lolsy, Be Cool…

Thank you all who started to read my Blog! You’ve made this girl very happy =D

I wrote a post a couple of weeks back saying that if I could get close to 1000 near the end of the year, that I would do a give away. I am still going to do that. In fact, I’ve already gotten a couple of things for it…So watch this space for me! 4 month until Christmas! I think if it keeps going the way it’s going…I can see getting to the 1000 readers by the end of the year. That would be really fantastic!

I just have to find a way to do the giveaway! Does anyone know how to set one up on WordPress?

Good Week Wrap-up

Although I feel like I’ve been quiet this week on the Blogging front. The quality of the Blogging has been good. Not only that though, on Monday was I not looking forward to this week. Although physically I am so tired because of different reasons of lack of sleep…Everything that I feared is…

Let’s be Friends <3

Today is International Friends Day…

From a young age, I always believed that everybody needed a friend. Even the most horrible of us. A real friend wont let you be a horrible person. So yes, everybody needs a friend. When you have good friends, you have everything!

Even though I don’t feel like I have a best friend anymore (other than the obvious) I feel like I have the best friends ever! We all are going through very similar things and I feel like I have become more of myself this year, than any other. I feel more brave and I feel like I’m doing more and this has been a good year for myself. Which is kind of funny considering what happened at the beginning of this year. I feel like my friends are more honest, more real and without a doubt in my mind more kind! I have loved hanging out with you all.

I don’t think you even realise how weird it is for me to say that I enjoy something without a whole barrage of “OMG LAUREN…THAT IS SO BORING AND IT SUCKS!”. It’s just nice…Like SO nice…Even if you don’t agree or like what I do, you don’t tell me how something that is apart of who I am, is boring and stupid…While saying how dare people saying they’re weird for liking Michael Jackson, like completely utterly in love with the guy…It is SO refreshing and so kind! We all like the music and the things we watch, because they are apart of who we are.

Too myself, being a good friend is not necessarily always “being” there for someone else. It’s about being real and honest, when no other person will. It’s not about trying to be the “best” friend…It’s about the best friend possible. It’s got nothing to do with telling someone what they want to hear, it’s about being able to tell them they NEED to hear. Especially if that means you might actually lose them as a friend.

Which is why I consider a lot of people on here, on WordPress, Safari Live and Twitch. a friend. We are so real with each other. We ask each other the tough questions, we ask to question ourselves and see something important from a different point of view. Being friends with someone doesn’t mean being in their pockets 24/7, it means being there when it matters. Not just when it matters for you.

Understanding that sometimes people just can’t be there for you at the moment in time. How they make you feel when they can’t be there for you. This is SO important as a friend. It’s basically impossible for someone to be there 24/7 for others ALL the time. I can’t think of a single person that I have in my life, right now, who makes me feel worse when they can’t be there. THAT’S what friendship is too me. Knowing that if they can’t be there, they don’t make you feel worse.

Love. Your. Single. —

Let me just set my scene for ya: I’m sitting on my bed putting together the flood of thoughts running through my head for this specific blog post. I just finished cleaning my house (and I mean booooy did I clean….like actually cleaned…not just a liiiiittle….I went all out ya’ll….I’m adulting out here). I baked […]

The Lolsy’s Library Shop Update

So I’m not sure how many of you are aware that I know have a website:

Lolsy’s Library

The major reason I started the website was because I was completely inspired  by crafts and creating something that I could sell. Something and ideas that were related to my Blog. I bought items to create candles and those little polymer clay figurines. Originally I had planned to have them all created and done by now.

However, I didn’t plan on the planning, that it wouldn’t be so easy to just up and create things. There are different types of polymer clay and of course the ones that I bought are all hard and are hard to use and mould. There is “soft polymer clay” however, which means now I am going to grab some of those, but they will still take a few days to get here. As for the candles, I need more equipment to create those. I need to go to an op shop and get some pots and pans. As well as more scents.

It’s not all going exactly to plan…Isn’t that life though!

Here’s what I need to do soon:

  • Two pans to make the candles. Ones that can be damaged.
  • Look into soft fimo…I haven’t really found any colours that excite me!
  • Have to get the warning flame labels for the candles.
  • Need to get better sculpting tools for the polymer clay. The ones I bought, half have broken already.

 

 

Who says…I love you! <3

Just wanted to say I do love you people on WordPress…Your support has meant a lot to me. Just being able to discuss all sorts of things! This is for you all ❤ Play it loud!
