Share Your World – 7-10-19

QUESTIONS:

Social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat) a good thing, a bad thing or a mixture of both?

It’s a mixture of both. Some days I can be on it and be fine and just interact with people that I care about. Then there are other days when I can’t stand the stupidity, even if it’s with the people I care about,lol. The best thing it keeps you in contact with people you care about, and most of the time for free.

Are you camera shy or do you pose for the camera with confidence?

I don’t mind taking pictures of myself, but I’m shy taking them with other people. I’m an introvert, so I feel comfortable taking pictures of myself more because I’m comfortable around myself,lol. A lot of people that I know are extroverts, so a lot of the times they want to make sure they look good. Doesn’t happen so much anymore,lol. But most people I hang around with now only ever take a group photo. So it’s not as big as a deal.

Is there anything you’ve kept from younger years for sentimental reasons alone?

I’ve kept quiet a few thing. I tend to keep things a lot. Not like a hoarder. For example, I’ve stopped buying plush toys, because I’ve got so many from my childhood that I’ve held onto. But if for some reason I get rid of it. Like one of my nieces really liked one of them, so I gave them to her. I feel like that gives me permission to get another one,lol. I also recently went through and chucked out a whole bunch of pictures and presents from my ex-friends. I did keep letters though, and any presents that I actually use, because why should I have to get rid of them? I’ve kept the letters too because there are memories from high school and other things I achieved in them.

Do you like to decorate for different holidays?

Yes…yes I do. Every year I have to convince my partner to decorate for Christmas. This year I’ll have to do it again because we’re going to visit his family, so he never thinks there’s any reason to when we wont be in the house on Christmas Day. I’ll probably just do it anyway,lol

GRATITUDE 

Do you feel you’re a strong person character-wise?   Also, if you do have a gratitude thought or picture you’d like to share, please feel free!   The world can always use more positive vibes!

I feel like sometimes I’m not and then other days that I am,lol.

This Week’s Questions:

  1. Was the last thing you read digital or print? I’m actually reading two things at the moment. One is a biography by Leonard Nimoy called “I Am Spock”. The first bio that I’ve enjoyed in a while. The second is Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare, I was so excited for this one and I am really struggling with it.
  2. Are you more an extrovert or introvert? Oh definitely an Introvert, probably why I enjoy Blogging so much. Once you get to know me I am more of an extrovert, but not by much. Introvert by heart, always.
  3. How is your life different from what you imagined as a younger person? I thought I’d be married by now with children. Steady job, with a house. I can’t remember or not if I thought that I was going to be married to a “Prince William” type or not. I’ve been thinking about a lot of things lately. I do not want to be a 50 year old first time mother.
  4. Do you think about dying?   Does death scare you?  Why or why not? This is a loaded question! I have actually been thinking about it a lot lately. Like the question it’s just something that keeps coming up again and again. It does and doesn’t scare me, I’m scared about how I’m going to go. Will I have something horrible and long winded, will I be alone, or will I have family and loved ones around? I’m not religious, but I think I will see loved ones on the other side. I’ve told my partner that I’m going first though,lol

GRATITUDE:

I found this interesting challenge and did it myself.  I’m offering these questions as a gratitude challenge for those who care to do it.    You can answer in text or photo. (I’ll be sharing these in a different post)

This Week’s Questions:

For the parents in the crowd:  What would be the absolute worst name you might give your child? If you’re not a parent (I’m not), then what’s the worst name you could give your pet?

Oh, there are so many bad names out there! I have seen so many lately, that it’s hard to tell if these parents were serious or not…One women (you might have even heard of her) She named her daughter “Abcde” I am not even kidding. It’s pronounced Ab-see-dee…Which is actually nice, but the way she’s spelt it.

What mildly annoying curse might you wish you could curse annoying people with?

I think that I would probably to give them a cold, just annoying enough, that it is annoying. Not one that makes them completely incapable, just one that bugs them.

What’s the weirdest thing you did as a child?

I got into this really odd habit when I was child, of plucking my eyelashes, pretty much till I had none left. I don’t remember why I started, or even when or why I stopped, but I remember doing it.

Do you believe things happen for a reason or are random?

I think it’s a little bit of:
Season 7 GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

And Finally, in the spirit of New Year’s:   What’s a resolution (if you make them, I don’t) you’re making for the New Year?   How confident are you in keeping it a reasonable amount of time?

The best resolution I make is with Goodreads. All the others very rarely happen.

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.

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 really appreciate the people on WordPress. Commentary wise I have had some amazing, inspirational conversations this week. They have been really motivating!

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.

Are you a practical jokester?

No..but I constantly think of doing practical jokes to people I know…I just never follow through.

Who cuts your hair?  You, a friend, or professional.

My mum actually does it most of them time. We have a few family friends that are hairdressers but most of the time I just need a quick trim. If my Mum didn’t want to or couldn’t, I’d probably go to one of them. Sometimes I want to go to a hairdressers and get something fancy done, but it’s just too money for something that will probably only look nice for a day.

Did you have a stuffed animal when you were a kid, if so what kind?

Oh I had a LOT! I’ve still got some as well. Some I’ve put away for my future children, some of the others I’ve gotten rid of (either through donations or just thrown out). Some are still out in my room. Picture below. They’re usually just all together all the time, every now and then (particularly difficult week/s) I will bring one of them onto my bed with me. It’s nice to have something from your childhood to cuddle…If they could talk…I would have to kill them!lol

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. 

Sometimes you just need a reminder too forget the people that have tried to hurt, lied about, gossip and try to make others hate you. Forget those who have made you angry and remember to cherish every single second with those who have loved you, those who do love you and those who you love. They wont be around forever.

What would be your ideal fantasy way to spend Monday?

  • Slow cook…Oh my goodness, I’ve just been introduced to slow cooking…I am in love! You can smell the yummy food all day, it’s fantastic!.
  • Some serious cleaning out.
  • Take my dog for a walk.
  • If I’m at my partners house, I love cleaning up while he’s at work.

What one person that you are out of contact with would you like to say thank you to?

I can’t really think of one person, generally (even ex’s) I will thank for anything good or positive they brought to my life…Who knows when I’d see them again! There’s only one because I cannot remember if I thanked him or not. In year 6 (so about 10-11 years of age) I was bullied pretty much by all my classmates (my friends were in another class and I was not allowed to swap for some reason). There was one classmate who actually made me laugh, but of course if I tried to be friends with him, “I must love him”. I don’t think he realised how much he got me through.

List your favorite toys or games as a kid?

  • Hide and Seek – I was the BEST at this! I played with my cousins and brother and I was the lightest so I could hide up in the highest tree and hide in the tiniest spaces.
  • I loved my Barbies! They had a whole story going on there. There was one who could only eat junk food or she’d die! There was another who was psychic and she was also the group back manager. All my non-barbies “dolls” were the Barbies parents (I remember having an Strawberry Cupcake Doll) . Good times! Some of the outfits and Barbies that I got have come back in Fashion. I recently rebought a Rock and Roll 1980’s Barbie (link to pinterest…I also had the peaches and cream dress).
  • We all had a lot of little cars and trucks. We made car families and we were so original. We had the “Truck Family”, who only had trucks, the “police car” family. There was the Mayor’s family, who were all the fancy cars. We had a group of “teenagers” that were what you called nearly on the scrap heat and they were all fosters. Of course the Mayor’s daughter was in love with one of them!
  • I also was given my cousins cabbage patch doll, but at the same time I was given a “Magic Nursery Doll” – (goes to a YouTube video). I still have those two! They’ve been put away though for my future children.
  • I had a puppy surprise and my brother had a Footrot Flats dog and one of the “surprise” puppies was black and white.
  • Since I was a Ballerina when I was little, I also had a “My pretty Ballerina – ebay link” Who’d hang out with my magic nursery and cabbage patch doll.
  • My top 3 favourite though was my life-sized doll, who we called Brittany. She was my “sister”. She was in all the family photos. Then my brother turned her into a goth and made her a little black dress and we still have her too. I have to take a picture of her.

I am having such a good time remembering these =D Thank you so much!

In all honesty the question above has really been making me smile and now I’m looking for the other toys from my childhood. Thank you!

Share Your World – November 6, 2017

Would you rather take a 2 week vacation with an organized tour or take a cruise of your choice?

I’d rather have the 2 week vacation only because I get sea sick and would probably end up doing nothing on a cruise except for lying on the bed and throwing up the whole time. I wouldn’t enjoy that at all! I’d rather have a two week vacation of my choice,lol

Did you like swinging as a child? Do you still get excited when you see a swing?

I used to actually feel sick when I’d go on the swing, because I’d make myself go really high, but I loved it anyway. When I go past one I have to honestly stop myself from going on one. Mainly because when I’m walking past one I am usually walking by myself, or on my way to work, so it’d probably seem a little weird.

What is the most important thing that you ever learned ? (I bet it’s not something you learned in school)

Oh gosh, there is so much that I have learnt in my life time. Where do I talk about the most important? I think the most important to is to remember to be kind and to keep laughing. I made this silly comment the other day on Facebook, one that I thought was nothing really. It was about stop making nothingpeoplefamous (ie Milo Yiannopoulos). The guy is a nothing, he has no real power, he makes his money off of people’s stupidity. By telling bigoted people what they want to hear (I didn’t put that all in though, just the #stopmakingnothingpeoplefamous…that was it) Oh my goodness this one lady told me to kill myself and that I was clearly a dyke. Her reaction such an OVERREACTION, I genuinely felt bad for her. I genuinely felt bad for her and apart from telling her to get off of Facebook and get a hobby, for genuine concern. Everyone else was attacking her enough.

It made me stop and realise these people I engage with via Trump or SSM or other disagreements, these people tend to just follow what they’ve been told with no actual research. On Twitter they just tend to retweet things and I feel sorry for them. Their world must be just so small. They probably will never “get it”. Just understand be kind knowing that they probably honestly do not “get it”.

I don’t know where I was going with that,lol.

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

This is going to sound weird, but I appreciated this week the people that were asking me if I was waiting in line or had I already ordered in such a polite way. I think most of us see strangers mainly on social media these days and all these strangers just generally being nasty to one another. It’s nice to interact with strangers being nice to each other.

Fake Liebster Award news ~.^

So I decided to “steal this” if you will from the awesome Blogger that is Emilyxonline (Beauty and Lifestyle Blog) Please check her out, it is an amazing Blog! I decided to steal it from her, because I realise it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. These are some great questions!

THE RULES:
Answer the 11 questions that your nominator has asked you.

  1. Nominate 11 other bloggers (with under 200 followers)
  2. Ask your nominees 11 questions.
  3. Let them know you nominated them!

Instead of tagging 11 people, anyone who wants to do this post. feel free too! Make sure to tag me in them so I can read your answers and get to know more about you!!

My questions for all of you:

1. What is one thing you love about yourself?

This has honestly been the hardest question to answer. I’ve been feeling very lost recently and not very respected in a lot of different areas of my life. So it’s hard to think there is anything lovable there. The one thing I do love about myself is that no matter what I’m going through, I do not take my stuff out on those who have done me no wrong.
2. If you had the chance to meet your favorite youtuber, who would it be and why?

I never have but I would love too! Their “career” isn’t really YouTubing, but their YouTube channel is now apart of their career. I suggest that if you’ve watched RuPaul’s Drag Race, or are aware of the Drag scene. Please check out “Bro’Laska“…It’s such a great and funny channel! This link is for their play list. You will not be disappointed! They have made me laugh and gotten me through some really depressing nights. If I’m in a bad way, I will play their videos before I fall asleep. Unfortunately, there last few videos have been extremely short.
3. Have you ever traveled out of your country? If so, where did you go?

I have, I live in Australia. I’ve travelled too two places, one was the United States and the other was the UK. I loved both places, they were so gorgeous and I travelled to the US and then UK straight after and the difference in the greenery, was shocking! I couldn’t get over it! Literally,lol.
4. One quote you will always stand by?

I will always stand by the Quote:

Will Shakespeare

It was written by the one and only William Shakespeare, but it is also on my Great Grandfathers head stone. I feel like we have lost this a lot, and it is probably the hardest thing to do in this world. Especially in the world we live in, with all the photo shop and filters and this almost “need” to have the best of everything, even if we don’t really want it. I think we need hold to this quote more than ever. In a world where people don’t want to listen to other sides and just want to bully, it can be tiring to fight for ourselves, but we need to more than ever!
5. Favorite childhood memory?

This is an interesting question, because my answer is a weird one. Whenever my brother and I would both get grounded at the same time, especially if it was an all-nighter one. We would sit in our bedroom door frames with our pillow and blankets and just talk to each other. We were probably being punished because we were doing something to each other, but we would just sit, talk and joke. I can’t even tell you what we even talked about, or why we were grounded, but they were honestly my favourite times.

6. Advice you would give your teenage daughter (if you ever have one)?

The best advice that would probably give her is that, she needs to decide for herself what is right and what is wrong, ultimately she is the one that HAS to live with that decision. If she knows that something is wrong and she goes through with it anyways. I will be there, but she has to be willing to follow through with the consequences of her actions. That whatever her decision, she needs to be willing to take responsibility for that choice.  For example, if she walks pass someone being bullied, she needs to really ask herself “Why”…I think that I’m pretty harsh sometimes,lol
7. Are you more of an eyeshadow or lipstick lover?

Definitely a lipstick lover. I am so low maintenance and trying to do all that stuff to your eye, it’s a lot of work,lol…I also do love though how lipstick just seems to give me that feeling of “I am finally ready, this is it”. “This is me for the whole day/evening/party.” I tend to put lipstick on last. I tend to just put an eye liner on. Sometimes I will put eye-shadow on, but it is really rare and usually I have practised with the colour (or colours) earlier.
8. Favorite high-end foundation (if you have one) and favorite drugstore foundation?

I don’t really have one to be honest.
9. How often do you wash your makeup brushes/sponges?

As mentioned before I am really low maintenance when it comes to make-up. So I don’t really clean that that often, because I don’t really use them that much. Most of the things I use, don’t really need to use makeup brushes and sponges. If I ever have to use that kind of makeup, I’ve probably borrowed it from my brother…He’s a Drag Queen =D lol Far more make up maintenance than me,lol
10. Favorite thing to do on the weekend?

I love to sit down, with a cup of tea/coffee, play “The Sims” and then watch “Safari Live“. Oh I love it! I would literally do it every single day if I could =D Please feel free to join us…I’ll be there! If the weather is nice, I will go for a walk with my Dog and usually walk by the shop, buy a nice lunch, just before the drive.

11. What do you like about my blog? 

I like how your Blog is relatable, even though I am low maintenance when it comes to make up, I don’t feel like it’s too extreme, that I just don’t get it. It’s also given me a few handy tips as well, so I don’t need to take so long,lol. I really enjoyed your “Get UNready with me” post, as I feel like I have no idea what I should be doing at night, but should be doing something! I also didn’t know that you lived in Australia at that point,lol
