So, are we excited? Hahahaha
I’m not sure I’ve seen such a mix reaction to something in the whole of my life! Mostly with politics, you sort of stand with a party and that’s it.
Some people want to celebrate, but don’t have the money. Some have the money, but don’t want to celebrate. Some expect tax payers to pay for it. Some think the people who actually want it, should have to pay for it. Some are not bothered either way, some are completely bothered.
Personally, I am choosing not to celebrate the Jubilee this year. Not after who was made an MBE. A person who makes me feel ill, because they have made up SO much crap about trans youth. They’ve used their fantasy, to harm trans youth. Guess what they’re getting an MBE for…Services to children.
I cannot wait for Australia to become a Republic.
I am a little tipsy while I write this. I mean it’s a big glass of wine, but I am letting down my ancestors right now, haha…I am starting early, lol…I hope I can go to work!
Saint Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig, lit. ‘the Day of the Festival of Patrick’), is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. 385 – c. 461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland.
I’m not sure I even have anything green, I am something like 1/16th Irish. On Saint Patrick’s Day, it is customary to wear shamrocks, green clothing or green accessories. Saint Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish. This story first appears in writing in 1726, though it may be older.
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.
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.
Do you all have a favourite “World”
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!

Here a few of my favourite…Halloween…things…
Although I am Australian, I have celebrated Halloween in American before. I’ve been able to find quiet a few of my favourite things in Australia.
My favourite Halloween treat:
My favourite “classic” Halloween film:
The most misunderstood “creatures” on Halloween:
My favourite Halloween Song:
Favourite “modern” Halloween movie:
My favourite Halloween decorations (if I could!):
My favourite Simpsons Halloween Special:
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!
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.
WordPress New Year
Maybe use it as a chance to make some changes?
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
I just wanted to hop on quickly and wish you all Merry Christmas and I hope that you have a great day. However you are celebrating it today, with that be with family, presents, friends…or if you don’t even celebrate it at all…I hope that you just have a really great day ❤
