Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do do? Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed

I have always wanted to be an Ice-Skater, they just all look so beautiful in the ice! They almost feel like they’re floating sometimes. I have always loved Torvill and Dean, and I have their film on DVD. I was obsessed when I was a child. I’d go over my Grandparents and watch “Fire and Ice”.

A piece of clothing from your younger childhood you still remember?

I do. I have a dress, it’s kind of hard to describe, but I looked so cute in it! It was a mid blue, sports style with a hood. It had these white and black checker pockets too,lol. I LOVED it! Good quality too, it lasted for quiet a while. I had to stop wearing because I grew out of it.

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?

Although I cannot actually drive. I am starting to learn, but I’d rather not be doing that. I’m doing it mainly because I feel I have too. With myself and my furbabies getting unexpectedly sick and my Dad having a triple instead of a double bypass. I feel like I have too now. I prefer being the passenger though.

If you were to pack a basket for pinic lunch, what would be in your basket?

A nice sandwich with probably that yellow pickled stuff (I have honestly forgotten what it’s called) and either turkey or ham. Either that or Cranberry sauce/jam with Turkey amd lettuce (usually I enjoy those around more Christmas time). At the moment I am nearly obsessed with drinking lemon, lime and bitters. I say nearly because I don’t only drink them. If it’s cold, I’ll have a tea in my travel mug.
Probably some sort of cookie as well. I actually dont like bringing cakes to a picnic. They get so messy and you have to find a space for them, they’re just not very convienent at a picnic.

On a vacation what you would require in any place that you sleep?

Something good to actually lie on! I have tried camping, I am no good at it. I can do it for maybe one night, but after that. A good old nope,lol…Actually if the tents came with good bedding, I’d probably be alright with that.

If you were to buy a new house/apartment what is the top three items on your wish list?

  • I would wish two bathrooms and they don’t have to be two fully decked out. Actually maybe two toilets. At least two rooms that have toilets in them.
  • A pool. It’d be so handy to have a pool with appropriate shading, especially during Summer. My partner is looking for a house at the beginning, I keep asking him to get one with a pool…Nope,lol…It doesn’t have to be huge!lol
  • A heater that works properly. My partners current rental property has the worst heater ever! The temperature thing has gone and it just get’s hotter and hotter. I actually came close to having heat stroke last year, in the middle of Winter!

What household chore do you absolutely enjoy doing? (can be indoor or outdoor)

For myself it’s more about why I’m cleaning, if that makes any sense? If I’m cleaning for a reason (even if that reason is because the house is gross) then I enjoy it more. Generally I don’t really enjoy any of it. I do enjoy putting things back where there supposed to go, all tidy and clean. Like you make a bigger mess first before it’s tidy. I enjoy the part when it gets tidier…Basically I enjoy it when it’s done,lol.

Create a sentence with the words “neon green” and train”.

I wanted to travel in the neon green train along the Pacific train track.

Other than your cell phone what can you always be found with?

At the moment and since Christmas (other than my wallet). I can always be found with a fidget square. I’m not actually sure that it works, but whenever I use it, I definitely do not get worse! My partner was going to get me a spinner, but, and rightly so, thought that it’d be too boring for myself and wouldn’t distract me at all. So far, he’s been right. All the spinners seems to do is spin and the squares allow you to hide them in your pockets as well.

I actually smiled at people unfriending me on Facebook this week. I’ve started to notice that when I write something positive or how happy I am. I lose someone, and you know what? Goodbye Felicia’s! My Facebook is not a place for you to feel better about yourself via my misery or to use to go and spy on me. I’m not sorry for starting to be genuinely happy with my lot in life. For the first time in a really long time, probably since my Grandfather died about 5-6 years ago. I am happy.

My thoughts to people who want to me to be unhappy, or are just jerks in general, or my happiness is boring to them.

Complete this sentence:  This sandwich could really use some …

fresh bread…lol…This was the first thing I thought of. Usually after you’ve that first sandwich, the rest of the pieces of bread start to go hard. You might get a couple of fresh slices and then that’s it,lol

What is your least favorite candy?

Anything that has “aniseed” flavoring in it. Oh dear god, it is gross! In all the years, as my taste buds have changed, it still is icky and yucky to this day!

What sign are you? Do you believe in astrology?

I am a Taurus ( I’ve had my Birthday already)

Too an extent I believe in my Astrology signs. I don’t really pay attention to the day to day Horoscopes, usually because they are so general. However, I’ve had my chart read into the different houses and those I will listen too. I’m actually planning on go to a Fair this weekend to re-center myself. I do believe in the generalized personalities, that’s because most of the other people I know who are Taurus. We are the same in some ways (even if they don’t want to admit it). The biggest trait is that we are stubborn, and we are. I’m a quiet person but if I believe in something or get an idea in my head, it’s hard to stop me. We are all HUGE procrastination stubborn Bulls!lol…Once we get going, you can’t stop us…Hence, the Bull, i think?

I’m not sure if “laughing” at someone is the same thing? I can always guarantee though any time my Dad says he’s coming down, he doesn’t. Then I get a torrent of abusive text messages saying how I never go visit him (he lives over an hour away…by car…and I don’t drive, and he knew all this before he moved up there). It just makes me laugh, as he did it again today, it’s a joke in my family now. We’re all texting each other right now. How he can’t see that this is just more proof of how little he is there for us, I don’t know what else to tell you! The only different between now and when I was a teenager, we’d have to hear it from our Mum that he wasn’t coming, and no abusive text messages, but I am sure he just sent them to my Mum instead.

I may or may not be coming on social media today, as I expect the abuse any moment now.

I can appreciate it though, because it does make me laugh these days. I can appreciate alcohol much better and how I have to “watch it” when it come to myself.

If you were given $22 million tax free dollars (any currency), what is the first thing you would do? (This is just a dream question, remember anything can happen in SYW.)

I would definitely pay off both of my parents mortgages AND look for a house for myself. Probably not one that has something ridiculous like 7 bedrooms, but a nice house. That’s near the sea, but not so close that it gets all that salt rot.

In what do you find the simplest of joys?

Coming home again…Whether it’s my Mums or my partners home. That moment when you get back and you can take off all your annoying “look nice” clothes, and get into your sweats. Curling up with a cup of tea.

What would be your ideal birthday present, and why?

In all honesty (and my answer is pretty lame) Just to know that the ones I care about are happy. I know that it seems lame, but we’ve all had so much going on. That’d it’d been really nice just to know that they are genuinely happy. My partner and I make jokes now about how we are the druggie family. I’m on medication for my anxiety, he’s on antibiotics for an infected ear and even the cat at the moment. The cat is on tablets to see if his fits are from a parasite. Which means we are all taking some kind of medication at the moment. Even my Mum has come down with something personal, and she’s on antibiotics as well.

So it seems like everyone in my family has high cholesterol, so my Doctor has put me on some tablets to help bring it down. I’m glad that I got is checked though. Now I know that I can’t keep eating badly, it’s making me want to change my lifestyle. More home cooked meals, more walks. My Doctor said that I wasn’t really at risk at a heart attack, because my blood pressure is fine. Although it’s scary, I am glad that I got it checked, because now I know.

Do you use paper money? If so is your money organized sequentially according to denomination?

Oh my goodness, I do both of these! I still prefer using paper money, I will use “pay wave” and the like, but I feel REALLY uncomfortable doing it. Where is my information going, is it being stored?….I know…paranoia! I do also organise my money, I have to “notes” section in my wallet. One side will have $5 and $10, the other $20 and $50.

You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time?

Some might say too much so! Although I guess a lot of time reading. When it gets cooler in Summer and when Spring starts, sometimes I just like to sit outside and enjoy the water. Usually my cat or dog hangs around me and I play with them, but I’m usually just sitting.

What is your greatest strength?

I’d have to say it’s my Heart. I don’t want to sound completely up myself. It’s a little ironic really as well. My great grandparents on my Mum’s side, just dropped, their hearts gave out. My Dad has had a triple bypass. While I say my hearts my greatest strength. I don’t necessarily mean physically. I’m one of those seemingly rare people, who just because I had a bad day or a bad sleep, doesn’t mean I become a raving lunatic. I can still be there for others, no matter what I’m going through. What I have to learn is to make sure people don’t take advantage of that.

I made myself smile this week. For the longest time since I’ve had these anxiety issues, I’ve really struggled getting on buses…Which since I don’t drive, it’s become very costly. I decided by myself, that I am going to reduce the number of taxis and Uber I take. The best present, I decided, to give myself, is to save some money and take another step forward in controlling my anxiety. SO I did it and I’ve already saved myself in this one week over a hundred dollars =D

If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get?

Oh wow, I have gone through so many options. I’d have to go with banana’s. I like them and they’re good for you.

List at least five movies or books that cheer you up.

The first one that popped instantly into my head:

  • Robin Hood  – Men in Tights
  • Moulin Rouge
  • Phantom of the Opera
  • Anything JRR Tolkien – Movie or Book
  • The Archie Comics

If you were a mouse in your house in the evening, what would you see your family doing? 

I’m not sure that I’d want to know to be honest! My mum would probably spend most of the evening on the computer looking at Pinterest. Who knows and who wants to know what my brother gets up too…I don’t want too know! My dad is probably drinking -.-

What genre of music do you like?

I’m one “those” people, who likes pretty much everything. Different types of music makes me feel different types of things and different moods. The only kind of music I don’t like is that screaming, death metal type.

I smiled this week because despite other people not really being very helpful. I took my health into my own hands and instead of expecting other people to help me. I bought actual heart smart food and I feel SO much better for it. Even if my Mum is purposely buying bad food for me, for own odd reasons (for some reason she keeps buying battered food and no salad or fruits…I’m trying to watch my cholesterol for this month, I’ve got one more week to go) It’s up too me ultimately.

Been anywhere recently for the first time?

I have actually! It’s not too far from myself either. Where I work we sometimes have to go from different schools to different school. I’ve been working there for about 3-4 years now and I recently just went to one I’ve never been too before. I even got “first day nerves” because I’ve never been there before. Each school is similar, but they all have a “specialised” subject.

List three favorite book characters.

  1. King Arthur
  2. Aslan
  3. (Does Belle from Beauty and the Beast count?lol…She was in a Grims Fairytale!) otherwise Gandalf the Grey

What is your favorite non alcololic drink: hot or cold?

At the moment I am almost completely obsessed with Lemon, Lime and Bitters. I have been loving it where ever I go. Usually though my go to drink though is just a nice cup of earl grey tea.

What was or is your favorite cartoon?

I would have to go with the classic that “The Simpsons” Even know I get so happy watching it. I believe there is a Simpson quote for everything…FOR EVERYTHING! Even now even though they are running out of ideas, I still am loving most of the newer episode.  Any show that runs for over 20 years you are always going to have a miss type episode. I personally HATE the Australian episode too…It was just so stupid!lol

Which cooking utensil (other than the usual pots and pans etc) would you miss the most?

Oh wow, I had never thought about that before! I honestly think that I would miss having spoons. They are just so handy! They may not cut very well, but they can usually still do it. A lot of the time I use spoons to scoop things. It’d be a lot harder with a fork or a knife!

Would you dare to sleep in haunted house overnight?

I actually kind of have once, but I was with other people. I once spent a weekend at a supposed “haunted house” and we played a murder mystery over the weekend. It was so much fun! Personally I didn’t feel anything, but apparently others did.

My partner…Once or twice a year I just get really unhappy, everything that’s bothered…Even if it was a couple of months ago, gets on top of me. Even if I’ve dealt with, I just like to have a good cry. This week a lot happened at once.
