Thursday Theories – Words

Watching the generation that mocks Greta Thunberg for being “overly emotional”. While having near break downs over the Health and Medical professionals using the word “chest”, to make others feels more comfortable about coming in . Is oddly satisfying. Whose being the overly emotional ones now! lol

Does this need to actually pointed out as well, to “grown ups” like Janice, Victoria … whatever her name is. That not all pregnant people are going to be that fetuses mother or parent? Not all babies and children end up with the person that gave birth to them.

Oh and now to the “chest feeding”. I can’t decide (and I’ve warned my mum and partner) whether or not to call it #chestfeeding or #wallawallabingbang feeding and see if the baby cares, or if my breasts suddenly “disappear”.

I wonder if we got this hysterical when we went from wifman, to women?

Words like everything else in life, changes. Linguistics actually do consider that language evolves, rather than changes. They usually change depend on that present society. Take the word “gay” as a good example. It used to be known as being happy and care-free. Now, it describes homosexuality. That’s probably only happened in the last 50 years or so.

Do Languages evolve or merely change? – Science Direct

Highlights

Language dynamics is a true evolutionary process, because it exhibits variation and selection.•

Language variation arises through social learning, performance deviation and creative language use.•

Language selection is based on communicative success, increased expressive power, and the reduction of cognitive effort.

Ch-Ch-Changes

This post kind of follows on from the post I wrote yesterday. My brain gets literally confused with certain people though. The people I wrote about yesterday, how they’re don’t think YouTube or Twitter should change at all. How they are so dead set against these platforms being safer and just better mentally for people.

They are probably the same people who say things like “reverse” racism for white people, or the people that pick and choose sentences from the 2A rather than the whole thing.

Too myself “reverse racism” means that you are not actually racist. Reverse doesn’t mean the same, it means the opposite. I also find it funny though (not really haha funny) that a lot of people who claim reverse racism, are usually white. What I find funny is that these white people don’t see the irony in trying to make a special racism meaning for white people either. You are either racist or your not. There’s no other word, no other meaning.

Wins and Losses

Not a long Blog today, mainly because I did not sleep well at all last night…But I did see what happened in America today.

It may not have all gone to perfectly plan. But I felt like it was still a Win. Rourke may not have Win, but oh my goodness! Did you all see how well he did?! In such a Deep Red State as Texas! I mean, I feel like it was impressive…and now it leaves him free to be President! Even the Texans who voted for Cruz (god knows why, no one likes him!) Noticed it was too close to feel safe!

Might not feel like it, but that’s a good thing! It shows that things are changing! Even in a State like Texas.

On top of that though, Democrats won the House! Most excellent news! Which means that the Democrats can put things forward, like getting Trump to FINALLY release his Taxes. They can do so much more now! It’s wonderful!

I do not understand though how someone like Brian Kemp can run the election, when he’s running in it? That I really do not understand. The other things that are coming out now. About Gerrymandering and Jim Crow, there not being enough power cords for machines or paper ballots…It’s happening, change is happening!

So now I go to bed, but the time you all see this I will have hopefully been asleep for a few hours! Couple of hours until I have to get up for work…But you did good America, despite the losses…You did good!

Nurture Thursday – Who is your Editor?

editing

I absolutely love this quote when it comes to us editing to ourselves. How to explain it though? Every time we learn something new about ourselves, we are editing ourselves a little bit. Sometimes we try to edit, a lot, the negative in ourselves. Make sure when you edit your experiences and change who you are. That you don’t accidentally delete all of you too.

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.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

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.

Blog Name Change

This is something I’ve just started to think about and I thought of a different name and was wondering, as my usual readers, what you would think of the name

Lolly’s Library

instead?

The reason I ask is because the name Lolsy is also a nickname, but it was given to me by one of my ex-friends and I’m sorting hating using it. I have a feeling if she found out that I was using it still, it might cause a problem…That’s the kind of person she is…Most people though know me by Lolsy, as well as Lolly! Some of my nieces and nephews call me Aunty Lolly.

Please let me know if changing my name would be alright with you all? It’s not that much of a change, but I don’t want to do it “unawares”.
