Share Your World…March 13, 2017

Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

No, I never would. I get to…well…paranoid that if I do that the elevator/lift would get stuck and then I’d get trapped in there and I do not want that to happen. I guess then I don’t think it makes it go faster, I believe it goes slower.

Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneous (for example if you are visiting a big city you don’t know?)

At the moment I really do suffer at the spontaneous, I need to have things planned. However, when I feel strong and my anxiety issues aren’t affecting I love to go out and do something, so that’s kind of spontaneous I guess? Even so, I did like to plan things even before my issues happened, I was always a planner, with random moments of spontaneous….very rare moments though.

Describe yourself in at least four uplifting words.

  • Listener
  • Loving
  • Tries
  • Inner

If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert? 

Oh my goodness, so many choices and they all have their own pro’s and con’s. I love looking out over an ocean and I do like hot tubs, but I can only stay in them for about 5 minutes before I start feeling sleepy. No desert though and only a ski resort if I don’t actually have to ski,lol. I cannot choose!

Friday Nights and First World Problems

I have been hit with an conundrum, three of my all time favourite movies are all on tonight!

potc-ends-worldhobbit-fivemoulin-rouge

What is a girl to do? What do you do when you are confronted with this “problem?” I decided to flick between the three, and then I ended up having the Hobbit on television and having PotC on my computer, live stream. I decided to not even watch Moulin Rouge in the end. I feel like with musicals, there needs to be a steady flow, no stop and starts.

This week Bookmark Chronicles would like to know:

Which do you enjoy more: reading or writing?

You already know that you can’t say both, so don’t try it.

I have to say that while I enjoy doing both, I prefer to read. Some may call me laid-back or non proactive. I prefer to read other people’s work, especially the great writers! Sometimes it helps to motivate myself to write as well. It’s also really relaxing to read another writers books, especially on those lovely sunny days, instead of getting frustrated at not being able to write yourself! Sometimes I have found that reading something well written, or just something I’ve enjoyed, helps me to unblock my writers book as well.

I also find reading something can sometimes also help you to learn something, rather than you getting stuck in your own patterns.

This week Bookmark Chronicles wants to know:

You can only ever read ebooks or listen to audiobooks, which would you choose?

(You can’t do both and no alternating or switching)

I would have to go with audio books. Part of it is mainly because I have honestly never really used an eBook. I have always wanted a Kindle, eventually. I really enjoy audio books as well. I think that they are fantastic. They are great especially when you are doing other things, like cleaning or studying, and then you can listen to your favourite novel at the same time. It’s even better when a favourite celebrity, or someone with a really amazing voice reads the novel.

Sometimes it can be distracting, but it’s worth it!

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!

How many languages do you you speak?

I only speak English, but I do know random words in other languages. I can count up to 10 in German and I know a couple of random/general sayings, like Guten Tag (Good Morning) things like that.

What are some words that just make you smile?

I decided to go with whatever words popped into my head…Pippy, Travie, Warm, Mvula, Here comes the sun, Fun, Lasagne, Cubs, Justice.

If you were the original architect of one existing building, which building would you select?

I would want to be the original architect of the Parthenon, I just love that building. I love the ruins of it, where it’s placed, what it represents, who it’s supposed to represent and the view must be absolutely stunning. It is such a strong building, even with it being in “ruins”, it still stands so strongly after a long time.

Would you rather have telepathy or telekinesis?  (Telepathy is the communication using your brain waves, telekinesis is channeling the energy onto physical objects to cause substantial, observable physical changes.)

I think that I would rather have Telekinesis, the thought of being able to read or communicate with people through their minds seems like such a big invasion of ones privacy.

Literary Holiday…Personal Style!

I really love the website “Book Riot”. I think that they have amazing ideas and topics and they are one of the main site I go to for inspiration and to get ideas about what to write about. Sometimes they also have great ideas for gifts and which sites are good to get gifts. I’m not going to lie, sometimes I just enjoy to shop, sometimes I actually can’t stand it.

So once again they have produced this beautiful article, written by Kristen McQuinn as a guest post and I love her idea.

A Year of Literary Holidays (Book Riot)

The quick run down of this article is that Kristen McQuinn has “made up” her own Literary holidays to celebrate and some of them are fantastic ideas and I would probably be following suit. I also feel like, this is just me personally, when I give an actual day to something, I tend to be more dedicated to it. Rather than trying to get around to reading something.

A couple of my favourites from her article are:

January 18 – 19: She will either read stories from Winnie the Pooh, with her daughter and she also has a “Poe Day” when she reads poetry and drinks Absinthe.

June 14: I mainly liked her day for this “Caldecott Medal” and she and her daughter will pick a book from the list, go out and have some lunch or ice cream and then go to the book store.

She has so many good ideas! I am really tempted to come up with some of my own…What about you readers? Do you have any of your own literary holidays? Is the article tempting enough to make some of your own?

Yes … I took and take natural medicine!

Yes, I have been taking natural medicine to help with my leg, and it’s been working. Apparently this must be all a “placebo” affect though because I really wanted it to work. Apparently I didn’t want my “Western” medicine to work because I loved walking around in pain?

This has become a big issue for me apparently. I am a big believer in using both western and eastern medicines both together as they both have great benefits. I strongly believe that they both cannot work without the other. Some people I know are under the impression that when I went to my naturopath I was only feeling the benefits because I “really wanted it too work”. As opposed to the 3-4 months I was trying to get Doctors to give me medicines that wouldn’t just temporarily fix the pain, but get rid of the problem all together. During those months I mustn’t have wanted to get rid of the pain that badly? I am a masochist, without even realising and not even wanting to be one.

Silly people.

The most frustrating people I despise meeting are the ones who don’t like something or haven’t even tried a particular something, but judge it, and call themselves “open-minded”. While putting you down for using something when it has indeed worked for you.

Mind Flip

So I am going my first date with a second guy that I met on the online dating site and I have already set-up a second date with the first guy I met online. I’m a little worried because I still like the first guy that I met on the online dating and he was actually the reason that I joined the site in the first place.

I have never really had to reject someone where there has been the promise of dating before. I’ve had to reject people I’ve known for a while, but not someone I haven’t known for a while. I mean the second guy seems alright, but I am just not clicking with him and I do not want to lead him on. Oh the confusion of dating!

The other thing that I have been finding really interesting though is my total and utter mind flip on my ex, it’s been amazing! There is that saying though “Hindsight and 20/20” and they are cliches for a reason I guess! It just feels like my mind has done a huge 360. I really don’t care…Finding out certain things and really sitting down to think about it, I don’t think my ex cared about me at all!

Not in a vicious way, I just don’t really think that he ever really got to know the real me. He has no idea who I really am. Plus I think when you really can’t tell who a person is and who they genuinely like as a human being, there is no way that that is a good sign!

Feeling Good!

The times they are a-changing

Having a conversation with a good girlfriend tonight and we are shocked…repeat SHOCKED…by the amount of guys that are in relationships and/or married that hit on us. Both my girlfriend and I are single and these “respectable taken” men are not helping the cause. There are a few things that make me really mad about it:

  1. How can you call my ex a douche when you’re doing what you’re doing? He didn’t make promises of marriage or anything close to that.
  2. Most…in fact, pretty much all of them…claim to be bi-sexuals…I’m not sure if they think that they gives them a special permission to hit on other people while married or something?
  3. What makes them think I’d ever go for a married man to begin with? I never have and never would…I am not desperate and there are a lot more guys out there that are not someone’s sloppy seconds.
  4. What makes me angriest the most though…My brother is gay, my cousin is gay…Yet these…Wankers…are able to get married and STILL hit on single people, like myself.
  5. I have not seen ONE of them hit on a guy…Just single girls…But this is who Christians really want representing them?…Really? Both my brother and cousins have been in long term committed relationships and neither one has ever been accused of straying. Yet, they can’t marry and these guys can.
  6. You never hear of their partners being bi-sexual…Amazing, isn’t it.

All these guys are doing is harming myself and my girlfriends and relationships in general. We are single for a reason and these guys are a huge part of that. I can think of maybe one or two couples who don’t seem to do this.

We obsess over characters like Thorin and Thor and Mr Darcy because the truth is, to find a decent guy (I still believe that they are out there still) is getting harder and harder to find. These guys damage the rest of you guys and put single girls like me off.
