Should I?…And how do I?!

So my partner keeps insisting that I should start streaming…Mainly my Sims 4 games.

For those who may not know “Streaming” is where you play video/console games … COMPLETELY LIVE! (Don’t know why I wrote that in capitals)

It is actually something I have thought about, but I am such a noob!

For those who may not know what a “Noob” is, it’s someone who is really bad at games … Hence why I love the Sims.

Since we are approaching the hottest part of our summer in the northern hemisphere, what’s your favorite ice-cream, frozen yogurt or sorbet flavor?  (Those of you who live down under I’m sure you remember what it is like in the hot summer months).

I really love frozen yoghurt! Gosh, it is so yummy! I am a big fan of any berry flavoured frozen yoghurt. I eat it so fast I get brain freeze, I never learn…But it’s just SO good! I just don’t like having type of frozen or really cold food during Winter. When summer comes back around though…Watch Out!

How often do you people watch?

Oh my goodness. If I’m around people I am people watching. The only time I’m not really people watching is when I’m at home. Even then sometimes I’ll watch my partner or my Mum just wondering why they’re doing what their doing.

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 fresh water lakes. It just beautiful and meditative. Take a day and just lay out on the bank. The views and the animals…Bliss!

Everything this week. This has been a good week, even though weird things happened. I took control and worked on it. Then I got exactly what I wanted. I just did it and it happened =D

You can have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what is it? Sushi? Scotch Tape?

You know at first I thought that this was such a honestly silly question. Then I actually thought about how often I use scotch tape. Especially having Mighty Ape around with all pretty patterns on their scotch tape. I have actually been using a lot for presents and generally crafting.

Teleportation or flying?

Teleportation all the way! My partner and I constantly talk about this, how convenient having teleportation would be. Even flying back and forth would take time. Teleportation is pretty much instant. During Winter and those REALLY hot days in Summer, you wouldn’t even need to sweat or get wet!

Would you rather live where it only snows or the temperature never falls below 100 degrees?

Never falls below 100 degrees. We are in the middle of Winter right now and I am definitely not a Winter person. I miss the warm sun!

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. 

Emotionally, it’s been a rough week. I have really been appreciating the weather, even though it’s Winter, the last couple of days we’ve been having sun during the day. It’s been nice, it’s still cold, but the sun is helping me too feel better.

Too the Extreme!!!

My partner was listening to some YouTube videos the other day and I could just hear it out of the corner of my…ear

I’m not sure how man people have heard of the feminist Anita Sarkessian. She has created a lot of outrage in the gaming community, because she’s very vocal about women’s role in the gaming community. Which ended up with her receiving deaths, rape and pipe bomb threats. #GamerGate … Now I don’t ever agree with extremist on any topic, they are usually very detrimental to whatever cause they are representing. I didn’t really find what she said that bad. The real irony thing was that she proved the point that the gaming community has a bas attitude. The video that my partner was listening too…Was a guy trying to point out everything wrong with what she was saying about Bioshock. I had agreed with what they both were saying. Definitely not enough to send someone death threats so bad she had to move.

I thought it was interesting the comments though, proving her exact point. That the gaming community is a toxic one. The comments were talking about her “lies”. When all she’s talking about is an opinion, and how she believes the games could be better represented. I was expecting this man-hating, shrill woman…and she’s just not. Proving her point again.

One and only thing that never seems to occur to these people…You don’t have to watch her, you don’t have to listen to her. In all the comments about her lies…Not one of the commentators, made mention of them and what the lie is/was?

Anyways…I digress from my original topic.

Which is that…Why do we seem to pay attention to the extremist anyways? Anyone with any common sense would know…well SHOULD know better than to listen to them anyways. I don’t. Extremist’s are usually coming from a place of hate to begin with and so have walls up already. Not that they shouldn’t be listened too…Usually though people’s interactions with these people end up being a shouting/argument match.

I just recently called some people of the Gay community the “Kanye Wests” of the Gay Community after they said there are certain groups of the Gay Community that who cannot be apart of the Pride month. Get outta here! I sort of regret calling them the Kanye West’s, but I don’t regret it 100%.

If you had an unlimited shopping spree at only one store, which one would you choose? Why?

Oh dear…How could I chose?! It’d have one of three and would honestly depend on what I needed the most at the time. I would love either IKEA, Zing Pop, Rose Wholesale (online though), Crossroads or Dymocks. The only problem with Dymocks is that it’s a bookstore and they don’t sell book cupboards…So where would I put all the books?!

What is the worst thing you ate recently?

Buffets are always a bit of a give and take…Some of the food I ate was so yummy, but the chicken teriyaki…The chicken wasn’t cooked properly!

Name five things you like watching…

I am assuming that is about shows or movies I like watching rather than genres? It’s what I’m going to go with!

  • Homicide Hunter.
  • Any shows that are about Ancient Cultures.
  • Last Week Tonight with Jon Oliver
  • I have really been loving Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. It’s completely fascinating and I highly recommend it!
  • Wow Presents: Bro’Laska…It used to be a YouTube show, but now you have to pay for it. On a different platform.

As always my puppy, Pippy. I like to call her my unofficial therapy dog. Animals are just lovely.

The Christmas Spirit

So these last two weeks of 2017 (can you believe it!) I am going to try and keep myself and all of my posts as positive as I can. I like to go into a New Year with a positive outlook. This may mean though restricting my time on social media…It just has gotten too vile and nasty…I cannot take it Captain…There’ll be one positive story and then 11 ugly ones.

It’s been a pretty cruddy year for myself and I am only starting to feel better now. Even so, I keep having off days. I keep having at least one night as week where I don’t fall asleep until 4am…and I love my sleep! Sleeping Beauty is one of my top 5 favourite Princesses because of it! I am looking into natural ways to help me sleep, I don’t feel I need a prescription, just that little something “extra”.

I WANT TO LIVE AGAIN!!!

This is honestly feels like how it’s been in my brain…all year!

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.

Personal Promise

I have made a personal decision to not read Trump supporters comments anymore, they are some kind of different and special…

I made the decision after I read someone supporter saying that “snowflakes” are just jealous that Melania is far more beautiful than “Michael Obama” … I kid you not that they called her that…Yet some how calling Michelle Obama a transsexual and all sorts of things makes them the better person? While saying at the same time “Gotta support the boss’s wife”

Trust me when I say “snowflakes” are not ‘triggered’ by Melania’s beauty, they are triggered by her most obvious lack of a back bone. The most ironic cause she “supports” is cyber-bullying -.- Personally, I think both women are gorgeous, but being gorgeous is not an “achievement” and being “gorgeous” wont work for the rest of your life…Your brain will, your education does.

Putting one down doesn’t make you the better person. It was just this one profile that pushed me…It’s just not worth it, they just have the special way of thinking…They truly do.

This or That? #100 … The Finale!

this-or-that

This or That? #100

This is the final instalment to the awesome’s Bookmark Chronicles questions for This or That? So let’s make it a good one!

This week Bookmark Chronicles (and myself) would like to know?:

What do you value most in a novel?

Quality writing ~ Character development ~ World building ~ Logical endings ~ Relatable characters ~ Real life situations ~ Storytelling

Something else?

(You must pick one)

This is such a hard question, and yet such a good question at the same time. Sometimes a lot of all of those ingredients makes for a great story and can also make for a bad story if they don’t all *mesh*

I am going to have to go with though, the character development. A good character can pull anyone in and it shows at the same time good writing skills. I think that no matter how bad a plot may be or even a bad story-line. A good character who develops over time and can be shown to “human” and relatable, can sometimes all you need to have. How else could you explain stories like Twilight and 50 shades. They have some terrible plots and endings (Twilight is my most hated type ending, where it’s “like a dream” and people just ‘wake up’).

Although it probably sounds like relatable characters, I don’t know how many people can relate to characters all the time, especially Vampires. However I feel like when people grow and change, and it’s written well in a story, people will relate better. Not everyone relate to a “Vampire” but they can relate to the feelings and how they change and how people change with different situations (for example).
