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.
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!
(I’ve also never heard of Scott Walker, apparently – bad man – good to be gone)
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.
I feel like every time we learn something new, whether that be about ourselves, the world or about some other. We change a little bit more. Into something else even more beautiful, because we change our understanding of the world.
When my parents split up…and how I was treated afterwards.
Flying to America by myself to meet a guy! I still can’t believe I did that! No regrets!
Losing my “friends” at the beginning of the years…But it’s been a GOOD change!
Starting my Library studies.
When I was attacked by a male friend.
Having a massive panic attack and ending up in hospital.
Complete this sentence: Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s…
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.
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
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”.
This was something that I wanted to post forever ago, in the previous year to be exact…But I thought reflecting on my friendships would be better to start off in the New Year.
For me personally, a lot of my friendships have change. Even though I’m 33 now, I finally got to watch my 30th party a couple of weeks ago and it made me realise how much has changed for me friendship wise…How differently I feel from that couple of years ago.
I was thinking and talking about marriage the other day myself and too me bridesmaids are the ones who are supposed to have your back, that’s why they stand behind the Bride. How many friends do you have in your life you can honestly say that you feel you can say this confidently?
I would love to naively say that I would love to have a girlfriend group like Sex and the City. Even though I know it’s a tv show…It seems my little group is nowhere near this. One girl has just basically dumped us for an entirely different group for the last two years. The only time we see her now is when one of the other girls visits us from Interstate. That’s It. This girl that visits us from interstate, a couple of years ago she said that we were growing apart because for some reason she’s the only person I know that’s under the impression that when I’m single I’d rather hear my friends are being abused, then happy. You know what she’s done since then? Nothing. She hasn’t said let’s hang out and chat. She has hang out with our friends partners, more than me. Not only that when we were going through the rough patch, there was another one of our “friends” who started to attack me and all that was said “That’s who she is”…I didn’t feel better.
Now they’re all upset with me because I didn’t tell them I was in the hospital for a night. Well except the one that keeps attacking me of course,lol….And these are supposedly my oldest friends!lol
I want the Romy to my Michele (I am so Michele,lol)
The Fox to my Hound
The Carrie to my Charlotte (I will always be Charlotte too)
