Nurt Thursday – Celebrate!

Nurture Thursday – Celebrate

What do you like to celebrate? Do you celebrate just being alive another day? Do you celebrate that you got another shift at work? Do you celebrate that you made yourself eat well? Do you celebrate every single day that you’ve kicked another day of addiction with “no” addiction issues?

There is no shame is celebrating what has given you joy, even if it might seem to be on a small scale to everyone else. An achievement is an achievement.

Celebrate the little things.

Happy Birthday JRR Tolkien

I have to say I wish that JRR Tolkien was alive today…and not in a terrifying Zombie, completely full-formed.

Fans WorldWide toast JRR Tolkien twelfty seventh birthday

I love what JRR Tolkien honoured us with and sharing with us, his beautiful magical world. Do we deserve this beautiful world? Probably not, but he shared it with us anyway.

I am not really a Potterhead and I really only love Aslan in Narnia. I like both those series, but there is something just that little bit more to Tolkien’s world for me, personally.

I have now officially gotten over 900 readers…I’d just like to say hello to my new readers. I don’t really feel comfortable with calling anyone a follower. I just think it’s…it just makes me feel a bit uncomfortable.

I am excited though…I was excited when one person decided to start reading my Blog…Let alone over 900! I don’t think I’ll get to 1000 by the end of the year, but it shows to me that people are reading what I’m writing. It also gives me encouragement I still want to start selling things. I’ve been thinking more along the lines of bookmarks, cups/mugs…With sayings from my Blog. I wanted to do the candles but it’s too hard, and there are so many other options out there!

It’s okay to be single…at Prom

Formals or Proms as they are called in Australia are an interesting time in a young persons life. No matter what year of schooling that they may be in. There is SO much pressure to have the perfect “dance”. The perfect dress, the perfect “ride”…and of course the perfect date…But do you NEED to even have a date?

I went to both of my senior formal/proms without a date and I ended up having the most fun. Here’s my list of reasons why:

  • I didn’t have to worry about my date “looking” at other girls. Apparently that was a big issue at both of them. Especially for my best friend whose then boyfriend got depressed over how his gorgeous his ex looked (they subsequently got back together a couple of week later and now my best friend has gotten rid of all those photos).
  • I could dance to any song that I wanted too. Without having someone else sulk.
  • All the slow couple dances song, I just ate my food and most of the guys either complained the whole time, or just didn’t dance anyways.
  • I still got to take photos with everybody and actually missed a group photo because I was dancing having a lot of fun! Funnily enough all the “couples” had nothing else too do.
  • The only couples that actually seemed to have any fun were the ones that had been together for a while. In fact, at both my Formals the most happier couples had been together over both the Year 11 and Year 12 Formals consecutively.
  • I didn’t have to “colour match” with anyone else either, I could wear whatever colour I wanted, and whatever style of dress too!

4 Years on…

Over the weekend I have had the pleasure of celebrating a very important anniversary today…It has been 4 years (since today) that I posted my first Blog post. How exciting!

For those who are regular readers will know that I actually started this Blog as a school subject, about different type of social media type websites…and the rest they say is History! 4 years on and 550 readers on and I am still going!

Which is a feat in itself!

I have about 5-10 diaries and they all have about 10 maybe 15 pages full and then I just dropped them off and that was it. The fact that I have managed to keep this up for 4 years and make regular posts is absolutely amazing too me.

Maybe use it as a chance to make some changes?

 

 

This Birthday weekend starts now…

My actual birthday is tomorrow (Saturday), but I have things happening from now. So you probably wont hear from me at all for a couple of days, apart from one post that’s already been scheduled. I tried to get something that would get everyone together, but other people sharing the same week as me had different plans. So now I’ve got to see three different groups of people at different times.

Although I am excited to see people I care about, do you find that Birthdays tend to very rarely go the way you want them too? People ask you what you want too do, but they don’t really mean it? Even presents start becoming a disappointed, I had all these people ask me for my wishlists and now they’re all telling me that they’re just going to give me money? Like, what’s the point?lol…I couldn’t buy the things I wanted because I thought one of them were getting it, and now they’re all sold out. I have to celebrate my Birthday, not on my Birthday, but on someone’s non-birthday too and my partner wants to go straight to one celebration, without seeing my Dog and I want to see my Dog.

My Mum even said that we could have a combined Mothers Day and my Birthday thing and I said “HELL NO!” We’ve done that for the last couple of years and I end up doing the dishes all by myself, even though my cousins kids are perfectly old enough to help, while they complain about how bored they are. Including last year when I had hurt my leg and hobbling around in pain…Happy Birthday to me!lol

Share Your World … Week 51

Share Your World

Share Your World … Week 51

What is your favorite holiday?

I would have to say that it’d be between Christmas and Easter, but it’s mainly because a lot of those type of holidays, we spend with family, and I think that’s why they are my favourite holidays. I would say Christmas tips the scales just that little bit more because people are more willing to get together around that holiday, rather than Easter.

What types of food is associated with your holiday?

I guess it’s would be very English food, kind of traditional food, I guess you would say. We have the Turkey, the Ham, lot’s of boiled vegetables and I love Brussel sprouts! We do the pudding and the Christmas cake.

Do you travel for your holiday?

I don’t usually, we’ve been going to a family members house every year. I travel about 30 minutes to go to their travel, so I do “travel”lol…Next year though I will have too and I am not looking forward to it, it’ll be one of my first Christmas’s away. I will be driving about 3 hours to get to my partners side of the family.

Is it a religious or spiritual holiday?

The great thing about my family is that we are all so different, and we all have different beliefs backgrounds and we get along so well. So it’s kind of a everything holiday,lol

Is there a gift exchange?

Yeah, as we have gotten older the presents between the adults has gotten less. We’re now at the point where with the adults we just do a Secret Santa.

How long does the celebration last?

Usually just the day, but we sometimes catch up a couple of days to celebrate some of family members birthday who were born in that week.

 

400!

I  hit the 400 followers mark this week! I am so incredibly excited and incredibly grateful.

For those who don’t know, I started this Blog as a school project and it’s progressed from there. Since I didn’t really have a plan to start off this Blog with, it has made many changes over the times I’ve had it. It is the longest diary/journal I have ever had. Although I’m not honestly sure I would call it that because, it’s isn’t like I’m writing extremely personal entries on here.

I love this Blog world. I really do, I feel safe on here. The people I’ve met on here, the way it’s change my life. It really as, I cannot talk about the topics and issues that I do with the people that I do on here with my own friends. It’s kind of sad really. I have to be honest. I think no one really wants to hear it, the people I know. Anytime I bring a topic on my Facebook, people just don’t want to hear it…Ironically, if you play the “happy” on Facebook, they’ll respond to that. Even though every single self-aware adult knows how fake Facebook is. Apparently it’s not okay to stand for something on Facebook. Damn, I am OVER fake! It almost seems to me that people want to encourage the fake, not the real.

That’s why I love the Blogging World. It doesn’t seem to have the extreme negativity that other sites Facebook and Instagram have. Why that is, I don’t know. It has the discussions, it has the fun. It deals with the real and the fake. I feel like I can be, I discuss whatever it is that I want too. People are reading what is in my brain, rather than judging me on what I look like, or what I dress up like…It’s so freeing!

The only thing that I honestly wish is that I could hang out with the people from the Blogging world.
