Blog Ideas?

If you are a regular reader of mine, you have probably noticed that I don’t post a lot on weekends. I just really don’t have anything interesting to write on weekends, I also feel like this Blog is sort of what I enjoy doing the week. It helps get me through, once the weekend hits, even though being a casual worker and I can very really work on the weekend (just the Library, but I have no problem with them). I can usually really relax and not worry to much. Usually I use my weekends as well to write a lot of my more random Blogs.

I have been thinking lately that maybe I should start Blogging on the weekends, even if it’s something just a simple as write up of the week or what is coming up during the week. Not necessarily with myself personally, but any exciting days that are coming like the past weekend (for example). We had World Paperback Day, Ranger Day and Rain Day and I would have LOVED to have written something about that.

So be on the look out for even more posts!

The Big 500!

I’ve been keeping an eye on this post all week, in case things change a lot. Over the past weekend I realised that I know have 500 “followers” and I am stunned! Hence why I’ve been keeping an eye on this post and see if people dropped off…Haha

It is amazing to me that I honestly even have 1 follower, let alone 500…It’s amazing and it literally could not happen without every single one of you. I mean quite literally, it’s thanks to every single one of you. I don’t actually like calling you all “followers”, I personally prefer to call you readers. Followers seems very much like I’m a Goddess or something. Which I don’t mind thinking to stroke my own ego, but this is definitely not what people who read any post on WordPress are, we are readers.

I would like to take this moment to thank each and every single one of you for helping me get there. For those who don’t know when I started this, I started it as a school project and it’s just developed from them. It’s changed over the last couple of years and I’ve Incorporated more and more into the Blog, I’ve got my Twitter account connected.

Too be completely honest, I think I wouldn’t even do the writing I do now if I hadn’t have kept this up. Having the “responsibility” of a Blog means that I’m always thinking, always thinking of topics to talk/write about.  It helps me to keep motivated, and that wouldn’t also happen if I didn’t have readers who were reading.

500

How do you do it?

I was just thinking in the shower, as I do a lot, some of my greatest and most random thoughts happen in the shower…The one I had today was what do you do when you have a great thought for a Blog, but then have not much, or nothing to write down with? The only tool I can think of is having a little notebook in your bag at all time, or to have to “text” myself…What I’d really like to know though, do you have other suggestion?

Get to Know the Blogger: 100 Questions No One Ever Asks Tag

hello-my-name-is

I found this Tag on Vrushali Blog (you should all go and have a look here) They found it on ChocolatenWaffles’s Blog. Please go and have a look at both of them. I am doing it a little differently, because there are 100 questions in all. I am going to be breaking it up into 4 different entries over the month of February (that would make it 25 questions each time).

So let’s begin!

  1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed? There’s a reason I do not watch scary movies before going to bed, and this is one of them. I can sleep with either the doors open or closed. Although I do tend to sleep with them closed, because if I can see the clothes in there, I may start thinking to myself to have a clean out. Actually I probably would.
  2. Do you take the shampoo or conditioner bottles from hotels? No, I have never done this. I have no problem with other people doing it, and I don’t stop them. I just don’t do it myself.
  3. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in? I get too claustrophobic to sleep tucked into sheets. It’s actually one of the things I hate about sleeping in a hotel. They’ve gone to such a effort for my bed to be nice, that I don’t like to un-tuck them,lol
  4. Have you ever stolen a street sign before? Not really interested in stealing street signs.
  5. Do you like to use post-it notes? I do use them and I am honestly surprised that I don’t just have a notebook or something made out of post-it notes. Actually…That is a really AMAZING idea!
  6. Do you cut out coupons but never use them? Usually when I cut them out I use them.
  7. Would you rather be attacked by a bear or bees? I am allergic to Bees, so if they got me in the right spot, that could be deadly for me. So could a bear though!
  8. Do you have freckles? I do! My freckles are really odd as well, because 90% of them are in groups of three, in some way or another. I’ve got three in a triangle, three in a line, etc.
  9. Do you always smile for pictures? Depends, not all the time. It really does depend on the situation. It depends what it’s for.
  10. What is your biggest pet peeve?  I have a few, how do I number it to just one? The one that’s annoying me at the moment are people who just make insensitive and unnecessary cruel comments. Then get all mad when you call them out on it. I’ve gotten into a few fights who call other people ‘too’ sensitive and then when I’ve questioned, politely, why did they make the comment. They get SO upset. It’s like people really think they can say something horrible and everyone’s just going to agree with them?
  11. Do you ever count your steps when you walk? I only do when I think about it.
  12. Have you ever peed in the woods?  I have.
  13. What about pooped in the woods?   I haven’t, but if I REALLY had too (we all know what I mean) I would.
  14. Do you ever dance when there is no music playing?  Of course! I don’t know if it was because I was a professional dancer for a good half of my life, but I just find myself dancing in all sorts of places and situations.
  15. Do you chew your pens and pencils?  I haven’t for a really long time, I think the last time I did was possibly in High School, so that was just a little…a little…over a decade ago.
  16. How many people have you slept with? A lady never tells ~.^ Plus it’s still not “Alright” for me to have slept with anyone, according to the public,lol
  17. What size is your bed? My is a Queen…I think?
  18. What is your song of the week? In all honesty I don’t have a “song of the week” I have just been listening to my Beauty and the Beast soundtrack, over and over again.
  19. Is it okay for guys to wear pink? Of course it is and sometimes they even look better than girls in it! I personally think there somethings gorgeous about a man who has the confidence to wear pink.
  20. Do you still watch cartoons? Yes, and I will probably will for a very long time as well. There are some good cartoons out there and Disney/Pixar etc are all cartoons too.
  21. What’s your least favorite movie? I can’t think of a specific movie, but I am really not a fan of plain romance movies. I just find them boring and pretty predictable. I have never seen a Ryan Gosling movie! I even prefer those Sharknado movies over the romance movies, they give me a good laugh.
  22. Where would you bury hidden treasure if you had any? You think I’d tell you?
  23. What do you drink with dinner? It depends on the dinner and my mood sometimes. If it’s something more casual, generally a cool drink like water or a soft drink, maybe a juice. If it’s more fancy something alcoholic. Like I said though it can depend on my mood, if it’s been a rough day I may want something more alcoholic with my dinner.
  24. What do you dip a chicken nugget in? Barbecue sauce!
  25. What is your favorite food? Lasagna. It’s pretty much the only food I can eat when I don’t want to eat anything.              

1000th!

That’s right folks! This is my 1000th Blog post!!! YAY!

I have actually tried uploading a video to commemorate it, but I’ve had so many problems with it. Then when I thought that I could get it done, I forget that they were doing work on our power lines today. So here I am writing it again.

Thank you to everyone who has made this Blog a possibility, you don’t even understand! I’ve got like 10, maybe 15 diaries/journals and they all have about 5 pages written, with the full intention of them being full. Which is why it’s even a miracle I wrote one more post after the first one, let alone 1000!

1000th
Here’s too a hundred thousand more!

Share Your World … Week 40

Share Your World

Share Your World … Week 40

  • Why did you start blogging?
  • I honestly started Blogging because of a school project, we had to create some kind of different form of social media and communication. That wasn’t either Facebook or Twitter. We had a good amount of other sites we could have chosen, but I went with WordPress and the rest, as they say, is history.
  • A piece of clothing you still remember?
  • I remember my very first “skort”. If you don’t know what a “skort” is, it’s a skirt that had a pair of shorts underneath, and it was pink. I loved it, but because my Mum did not think it was fashionable enough, she wouldn’t always wash it. My mum used to not wash things of mine if she didn’t like, or very rarely. I think she felt as a single mother that she had to put a certain “look” forward otherwise people would question whether or not she was coping being a single mother.
  • Who are you trying to reach with your blog?
  • I’m not really trying to reach a group or a someone. I feel like this is my safe space, this Blog has made me feel a lot more safer, a lot more confident in what I’m thinking. I guess you might even say that I am trying to reach myself, trying to reach what makes me “me”. Everyone is on that kind of a journey. I just like to learn and share things along the way. I feel like, on here, I am being reached.
  • Is there a stuffed animal in your bedroom?
  • Some people may say that for a 32 year old I have too many stuffed animals in my room! I have slowly been getting rid of them over the last couple of years, and some are in “storage” for my children, later on. Most of the stuffed animals I have, I’ve had since childhood and my teenage years, I’d say 90% of them. Stuffed animals are just great for hugging, and I am extremely private person. I don’t like people worrying about me, especially if they are not the ones that hurt me, so I’ll cry or yell into my stuffed animals.
  • The best birthday present ever?
  • I’m not honestly sure that I can say I have received the best birthday present ever yet. Birthdays are not my favourite things, they tend to disappoint me. I have gotten some nice presents, but I’m not sure I can honestly say that I’ve received a great one. When I first saw this question, nothing really stuck out in my head. I have had some fantastic birthday parties though! Those has been fun, especially my 30th, I wish I could do that every year…If I was rich, I would do it as well.
  • What would surprise me about you?
  • I’m not sure what would honestly surprise people, I’m a pretty open book. I think what would surprise people is how much I’ve been through and what I know is inside of me and how much I fight every day just to feel normal. I told someone once a lot about what had happened to me and then couldn’t get over how nice I am after it all. My tolerance level for what others would consider “mean” and fight back against, seems to be different to a lot of people? One ex, for example, I ended up helping a lot of the girls he cheated one me with, to help get over him. He had made them feel like he was going to break up with me for them, and then he never did. Yet, could not figure why they got so upset with him when he started dating someone else entirely. Things like that, I felt really bad for them, whereas most girls would think they deserve to feel the heartbreak he caused them. A lot had to do with I had accepted the fact that we were just going nowhere with the relationship, and I had been abused in a relationship before. So I felt like he wasn’t a bad person, he was just…an idiot,lol.

I love…

I have been so inspired by so many different posts this week, it’s been fantastic. They have been so positive and amazing and influential, so I am sharing a couple that I’ve seen…But there have been so many amazing posts this week, must be something in the air. I feel like it’s so weird out there at the moment, so weird and pretty negative. So here are some good things that I’ve read over the past week.

Listening to your own inner voice: The Classic Feminine Woman

What I Love: Victoria Jaynes Books

Embrace Your Individuality: Curious Queendom

Usually on a Thursday evening I will share “Share Your World” but Cee’s Photography is taking a well deserve holiday this week. So I guess that I’m sharing my world of what I’ve been reading this week.

Brain Block

I’ve had such an interesting weekend, in that I did a bit of everything this week…Had a bit of a party, did a bit of retail therapy and had lunch with the family which then turned into dinner as we helped my cousin start moving into her new house.

So now my brain is completely blocked with something to actually write this morning. I have so many big things that could possibly be around the corner and I don’t know if they’re going to happen or not…Don’t you just hate that feeling!lol
