Do NOT threaten Children! Why is this even a thing I have to say!

#Love4Maddie

I could NOT believe what I reading yesterday! I thought for sure that I was mistaken what I was reading…No, it was true.

Hate Trackers Online… Read and prepared to get angry!

Please read the above link before reading my post!

I am SO angry right now! I am going to try and keep this short…There is a sickness hovering over American right now. Until their “Leader” starts condemning “things” like these people…(I would call them potato looking things, but that would be an insult to potatoes)….The cancer will continue to grow! What a shocker all the Trump supporters only focusing on the transgender “issue”…It is NEVER okay to have a group of “adults” making plans to kill and bully children…NEVER! DO YOU HEAR ME! NEVER! NEVER FREAKING EVER!!! I don’t give a crap how you feel about transgender people…Until Fox News, NRA and Trump start condemning these people instead of joining them AGAINST CHILDREN…I don’t want to hear one word about how about the immigration issues are to “protect the children” WHILE YOU ARE BULLYING THEM!!!! There are no “fine people” who threaten to kill children! #Love4Maddie…That was me, keeping it short,lol

I have also decided that I am not going on Facebook for a VERY long time…Why do people keep expecting you to help them…But then do not help you! I am sick of it! No more selfies for Facebook either! What’s the point of doing nothing but selfies? If I wanted that I’d go to Instagram all the time,lol…Not ONE person expressed their outrage at the Maddie situation…Not one! Only two people donated to my Dry July…THEN people who did NOT donate, sent messages saying we had to help them! WTF! I am SO sick of Facebook!

STOP ASKING PEOPLE TO HELP YOU WHEN YOU DO NOT HELP OTHERS!

WordPress is legitimately the ONLY place I really feel like I can discuss actual issues…Other than how gorgeous we so clearly are! We don’t need to take photo after photos to prove anything!

Those Republicans!

After seeing many, many…MANY…videos of white Trump supporters lashing out and attacking children…Why do they keep having a go at Liberals for not caring about the children? You know, the same group of people who called the CHILDREN who had been shot at “crisis actors”

But, yeah, it’s the Liberals who don’t care about the children.

Share Your World … Week 36

List 2 things you have to be happy about?

My furbabies, they were honestly the first thing that popped into my head. The other thing that popped straight into my head is just those who I am very close to. So my family, my partner, my good friends. I honestly don’t know sometimes how I got so lucky. I’ve been losing and getting rid of “unnecessary” people from my life. It’s been great!lol

If you could take a photograph, paint a picture or write a story of any place in the world, what and where would it be?

There is something about beautiful and powerful a sun poking through the clouds. I would love to be paint something like the below picture:

Sunset

The other thing is when I see a gorgeous image like this, it inspires me to want to write about fantastical places.

Should children be seen and not heard?

My mum always takes pride in the fact that myself and my brother were well behaved children. We knew our inside voices, we knew how to behave in restaurants etc. It sounds like though she might have just been very lucky. So I’m not 100% sure, there are some terrors out there. Wooo, what a sensitive subject! I don’t want to answer,lol

List at least five of your favorite first names.

  1. Lilliana
  2. Morgana
  3. Jasmine
  4. Joseph
  5. Anthony or Antony … Which the first name of my Dad and one of my Grandfathers. Which I don’t know if that has anything to do with it, but they sound like strong names to me? Jospeh is my Great Grandfathers names…I’m starting to see a pattern here,lol

Inbetween

Child or Childless…Or are you an “InBetweener”?

I am an “InBetweener”…I can see myself having children one day, but neither am I obsessing about it either. I have my Furbabies and one day will have the ‘hooman babies’ too…Maybe…

This is where my random thought lies.

One of the issues that I have being an inbetweener, you are neither accepted by the “having children” group and neither are you accepted by the “choosing not have children” group either…You are alone in an ever expanding abysmal abyss.

My main issue apart from consistently feeling unwanted is what if I can’t have children, do I get excluded forever? Not having children means currently that people think my time is not valuable, that I can just drop everything at the last moment for their children, without even being asked if I am actually able to come…And to me, there’s no respect in that. When I choose not drop everything somehow I end up being the “worst person ever”…As I was called once when I decided to go to my friends birthday, which I had been asked to come to weeks beforehand, over not going to my cousins kids 7th birthday, which I had only been told about the night before.

I do mean “told”…and not… “asked” if I can come…It is amazing an amount of difference between those two words.

At the same time, I am also constantly left out of conversations by my friends who choose not have children. Take the past Mothers Day here in Australia…One of my best friends decided to tag every single girlfriend of ours, who are not having children and not me in a post about being furbaby mama…I am one too…So why leave me out as well? I found it extremely hurtful.

So I made a post about wishing every type of Mother out there a Happy Mothers Day. That’ll show them!

Libraries are Magic!

Libraries are still a magic places to visit, especially for the children. My grandmother was a Library Manager and I used to spend a lot of time at her Library and I guess it’s what has inspired me the most. It just feels like such a shame that more Libraries just don’t have the funding to make their Libraries looks like these.

Take your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews to your local Library today!…Right now…GO, GO GO!

Babies!Babies!Babies!

I was invited to a baby shower and it’s for my partners cousins. So I have to make a really good impression, except for the whole I might not even be able to make it!

However instead of getting a whole bunch of baby things, they want us to give them a book. Which I personally think is great, but now the pressure is on to get a really great book!

So, my amazing readers, what should I get? Should I get one book or a series? Should I get something else as well “on the side”.

Oshkosh Zoo

http://fox11online.com/2015/05/28/police-report-gate-to-wolf-area-left-open/

You know irritates me the most? It doesn’t even really matter who’s to blame…Why wouldn’t you get the rabies shots! Why should an animal have to do die because of a human mistake. I would have sent the money to pay for the shots myself! Maybe next time (although they shouldn’t have to) the Zoo could possibly pay for the shots? If that was what the problem was. I would say that I hope this a valuable lesson for this mother and her child, but I doubt it.

 

30 Days of Gratitude…Days 8 – 14

(Well this one shall be very interesting since for half of it I’ll be at a family reunion).

Day 8: Alone – My mum is gone all weekend so this means that I have the entire weekend to myself! So far it’s been bliss (mind you though I’ve had to do homework all day). One of the things that I love at being home alone for a weekend by myself is the absolute solitude. Don’t get me wrong, living with my Mum isn’t all bad. Sometimes though you do a couple of days to yourself, so you can regather yourself back together. My mum has this habit of coming home and as soon as she walks through the door is complains. Sometimes, especially on bad days I actually dread her coming home because I know she’s going to complain about something and it makes me feel worse. I am grateful to have these rare moments alone.

Day 9: Study – I have finally managed to hand in a huge project and it was a huge effort to put since it was a topic I was not interested in and it took forever. Pretty much every spare day I had was taken up with it. This entire weekend I spent working on it and I have a test I really needed to study for. The reason I am grateful for my studies though is because not only is it helping me get into the career of my dreams. I am learning different things that help me in my work. At the moment we are learning how to make web Dewey numbers, every section of Dewey that I’ve learnt I’ve been able to then help customers out where I work. Sometimes work is busy so I don’t really have time stand back and learn.

Day 10: Drama Free: So there I was thinking what am I grateful for, because nothing really happened today…but there is something to be grateful in that alone…Nothing…Only two weeks ago I was angry beyond comprehension and my ex messing me about was beyond horrible. He made me feel worthless and the pain he had and was putting me through meant nothing to him. Like he didn’t care whether I was dead or alive and then he speaks so condescendingly to me….To NOT have anything like that in my life, is calming and beautiful.

Day 11: Single-hood – So I had a HUGE test today on my toughest subject. After the tests on this subject, my brain is completely fried and I fall asleep where ever I am. It was in this moment that I’m grateful that I don’t have children and I can rest easy. I’m also grateful because though by the time I have children I will be an expert on the subject, have a good job because of my studies and be able to comfortably provide for my children.

Day 12: My bed – I know this seems like an odd one, but I am very grateful to have a bed that I can get into a night and feel safe at night. I can dream at night, feeling safe with a roof over my head and safe in my bed.

Day 13: Brother – My brother came back today to visit us as we going on a family reunion trip this weekend. The reason I am grateful for my brother isn’t because he’s done anything amazing for me. He’s done great things for me, but the reason I am grateful to have the brother that I do is because he reminds me constantly what a MAN is. My brother is a Drag Queen, and a seriously good one at that too. He has won many Australia awards for the work that he had done. While I have all these “straight manly men” telling me that a man is only a man if he has a beard, or if he has big shoulders…My 6’4′ gangly brother is being a man, by being who he truly is. He is a constant reminder that a man is not made by what is on his face (neither Steve McQueen or James Dean had a beard can I just say too) or what he hides behind. A man is a man because he has the strength to be who he truly is. THAT’S a man!

Day 14: Family – By the time you read this I will be with my family at our family reunion. I LOVE my family we are all so different but we love each so much. It’s our differences that hold us together. A round up on the “labels” of people that will be at this reunions are: gay, straight, religious, athletic, creative, intellectual, spiritual. Yet, I can guarantee that we will have the most amazing time. From all of my other friends I know how incredibly lucky that I am too have the family (mothers side) that I do…My Dad’s side, don’t even talk to each other.

Odd one out…

Last night my best friend came in from Interstate. I have about three female best friends and ironically I could probably pick a “Sex in the City” character for each one of us (I would be the Charlotte in the group…but probably more after being influenced by Samantha). The interesting thing about my little groups of girlfriend is…I am the only single one.

Last night was fun and we talked and giggled a lot, but it was hard to hear about the problems they were having, especially when their guys are completely nuts about them. They are mostly things that they knew could be an issue later. I think that’s the hardest thing about being single, especially when you are the only one, is listening to how bad a friends relationships is, when it really isn’t and that they knew this issue would be coming up later.

I would LOVE a man who was devoted to me, who had my back, who talked to me, who tried to cheer me up when I am down. I have always had the opposite in my life. I have always had the guy who never had my back, including watching me get bullied mentally and physically by his roommate, the one who’d rather play a computer game then take care of me the night my grandfather dies, would rather spend Valentine’s Day with his friends than me.

I don’t get into relationships a lot, in fact, after 30 years I have only been in three relationships. My main problem is once I find that guy, I jump right in, and instead of letting it build up slowly and making sure that I am not falling for a façade. Except if I knew about a major issue, like children, marriage, career plans are likely to become an issue later I would never get into that relationship. I seem to find a lot that I am the only one like that. A lot of girls will get into a relationship to be in a relationship and that’s when the problems start.

True, I have nights where I feel so alone that I hold onto that pillow like I never have before…but I also know that one of the worst feelings in this world is feeling completely alone while you have someone lying right next to you.

Am I the only one who might WANT a relationship, but don’t feel like I NEED one? Am I the only odd one out…I would rather be alone, than feel alone.

 

Animals vs Humans (mainly children)

About a week ago I was trying to cheer myself up (the night before the new Government Australian Budget had been released and it was NOT pleasant). So although it may not be fact, not only are these videos actually quiet hilarious (especially with the adults obviously knowing what is about to happen) These videos are also a great reminder about how animals are in fact animals and parents need to remember to teach their children to respect this.
