QUESTIONS:   Now I realize that everyone doing SYW doesn’t live on this side of the world and on the other side of the world it’s now winter.   So substitute, if you’d like and if it’s more appropriate, “winter” for summer and answer the questions that way.   🙂

  • Are you a Summer person?   A Winter person?   Or one of the other seasons suits you best?

I am a Spring person to be honest with you. Winters too cold and Summers too hot, Autumn is meh. Mainly because though it’s heading into Winter. Spring is just right.

  • What is your favorite summer time clothing?   

I really love pretty dresses and skirts. I’ll be honest here for a second, I really love dresses in particular that are long and have a little sleeve. I grow hair SO quickly and am terrified of waxing. So having that length, let’s me go one or two extra days without having to be embarrassed that I haven’t shaved yet,lol

  • Do you find yourself eating out more during the summer?  Or making ‘cold food’ like salads and stuff you can heat in the microwave?

I do find myself eating out more, but I still will eat warm food. Usually most places have pretty good air conditioning, so it’s not too bad. My partner probably eats delivery more during Winter, but I don’t really like too. It gets really expensive after awhile and even if you get something delivered that’s “healthy”. It’s not really that healthy. It’s the sauce that most delivery and eating our places have, that kill the food. Since I’ve had to start watching my cholesterol, I’ve become so much more aware of these things.

  • Do you like watermelon?   What’s your favorite summertime treat?

I do like watermelon. It’s funny though because its just really all types of other melons that are my favourite during Summer. I don’t dislike watermelon, I just prefer other types of melons, like honey dew, cantaloupe etc.

Today is the Day *hugs*

Today is the day where we find out if Brett Kavanaugh gets nominated or not.

I don’t feel like anything I say will bring any comfort.

Even though there’s no reason to think why he would, since he has not met standards…Not even the basic ones.

A few should not be ruining the lives of millions 😥 It isn’t even about the sexual allegations. It’s about the perjury, it’s about the information that they’re hiding, it’s about the documents that they refused to release and it’s about what even lead up to the allegations to begin with #Ibelieveher Also vote for getting rid of life time positions, no one should have that kind of power!

  • Records not all released, unlike the other nominations in the past.
  • The perjury…Oh, what somebody please think of the Perjury!
  • The allegations
  • The not looking into the allegations.

All I can offer today is this…

“Some believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. It is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love.

If you were given $22 million tax free dollars (any currency), what is the first thing you would do? (This is just a dream question, remember anything can happen in SYW.)

I would definitely pay off both of my parents mortgages AND look for a house for myself. Probably not one that has something ridiculous like 7 bedrooms, but a nice house. That’s near the sea, but not so close that it gets all that salt rot.

In what do you find the simplest of joys?

Coming home again…Whether it’s my Mums or my partners home. That moment when you get back and you can take off all your annoying “look nice” clothes, and get into your sweats. Curling up with a cup of tea.

What would be your ideal birthday present, and why?

In all honesty (and my answer is pretty lame) Just to know that the ones I care about are happy. I know that it seems lame, but we’ve all had so much going on. That’d it’d been really nice just to know that they are genuinely happy. My partner and I make jokes now about how we are the druggie family. I’m on medication for my anxiety, he’s on antibiotics for an infected ear and even the cat at the moment. The cat is on tablets to see if his fits are from a parasite. Which means we are all taking some kind of medication at the moment. Even my Mum has come down with something personal, and she’s on antibiotics as well.

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. 

So it seems like everyone in my family has high cholesterol, so my Doctor has put me on some tablets to help bring it down. I’m glad that I got is checked though. Now I know that I can’t keep eating badly, it’s making me want to change my lifestyle. More home cooked meals, more walks. My Doctor said that I wasn’t really at risk at a heart attack, because my blood pressure is fine. Although it’s scary, I am glad that I got it checked, because now I know.

Do you use paper money? If so is your money organized sequentially according to denomination?

Oh my goodness, I do both of these! I still prefer using paper money, I will use “pay wave” and the like, but I feel REALLY uncomfortable doing it. Where is my information going, is it being stored?….I know…paranoia! I do also organise my money, I have to “notes” section in my wallet. One side will have $5 and $10, the other $20 and $50.

You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time?

Some might say too much so! Although I guess a lot of time reading. When it gets cooler in Summer and when Spring starts, sometimes I just like to sit outside and enjoy the water. Usually my cat or dog hangs around me and I play with them, but I’m usually just sitting.

What is your greatest strength?

I’d have to say it’s my Heart. I don’t want to sound completely up myself. It’s a little ironic really as well. My great grandparents on my Mum’s side, just dropped, their hearts gave out. My Dad has had a triple bypass. While I say my hearts my greatest strength. I don’t necessarily mean physically. I’m one of those seemingly rare people, who just because I had a bad day or a bad sleep, doesn’t mean I become a raving lunatic. I can still be there for others, no matter what I’m going through. What I have to learn is to make sure people don’t take advantage of that.

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 made myself smile this week. For the longest time since I’ve had these anxiety issues, I’ve really struggled getting on buses…Which since I don’t drive, it’s become very costly. I decided by myself, that I am going to reduce the number of taxis and Uber I take. The best present, I decided, to give myself, is to save some money and take another step forward in controlling my anxiety. SO I did it and I’ve already saved myself in this one week over a hundred dollars =D

Complete this sentence: I’m looking forward to….

the rest of 2018…After the start to 2018, I feel like it can only go up…right? I have the opportunity now to do something else with my life. Not panic and look at doing the things I’ve been putting on in the background and bring them to the front!

What is your favorite comfort snack food? 

  • Nacho Cheese Doritos
  • Chocolate chip cookies
  • Banana
  • Yogo Yoghurt
  • Chicken flavoured Twisties

My favourite comfort snack food can also be dependent on what I need to be comforted about.

What was one of your first moneymaking jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)?

My first paying job was a call centre operator, and I never want to go back to that! I am serious, I would rather strip than go back to that!lol…People over the phone can be so nasty!

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. 

I went back to work this week. I haven’t been to work since I had my panic attack. The morning, I was a little wobbly…but as the day progressed I became better. My brain is inspiring me this week =D

What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?

This is an interesting question because there is actually a colour that I really love to wear, but normally when I’m feeling a bit more extroverted. I like to wear red when I’m feeling a bit “extra”, but I cannot wear it when I’m feeling shy. So this is a really interesting question. I do have this kind of awareness, that certain colours can project certain emotions. When I’m at work for example as well, I tend to wear, not all black, but darker colours. Colours like purples, blues. I do have a green top and I love the colouring of the green, but I haven’t been brave enough to wear it anywhere.

What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)

Although I do have and have had Pomeranian and Chihuahuas as the only dogs that we have ever had. The type of dogs that I have always wanted is either a Husky, or a Rottweiler. They just always seems like really sweet dogs especially when they are properly taken care. However, I will probably never get one because I know that they would be a lot to handle, I’m too laid back really.

List at least five favorite flowers or plants.

  1. Roses (I know, cliche)
  2. Lilies…I know they are the “death flower” but they are so gorgeous!
  3. Cherry Blossoms…They are so beautiful!
  4. I actually kind of like cactus, they are sort of weirdly beautiful.
  5. There’s nothing better than a big old oak.

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

I have had a lot happen this week, some good, some not so good…and this all I can think of…A lot of people like being treated like dirt…lol…Not the nicest of inspiration, but it was just something that I’ve noticed. I have always been of the mind of why make your life harder than it already is? I’m starting to wonder if some people actually enjoy it? It has inspired me in the way though that maybe I am normal,lol…I have more of a good self esteem. I might actually write  Blog about some things that have been happening to me this week, because it’s been a really odd week,lol

Just relax

I think that the hardest thing to do in this world is just too truly and utterly 100% relax. The last month or so have been really hard for me, I’m living pretty much pay check to check this past month. This usually happens to me twice a year. Usually a month before the busy times at my work happens. It’s part of the reason I am looking for something more permanent.

Even though when I’m on holidays and planned ones, I will still worry…Maybe I shouldn’t have taken that week off, maybe I shouldn’t have bought that extra chocolate bar. It can get very overwhelming sometimes. Especially when I start to get upset at myself for buying that little extra treat.

I find the hardest thing to do is to my forgive myself. That’s when my head gets all messed up and I have to try and control my mind so I don’t get so upset that it gets me down all day. So I didn’t mean for this to become a kind of depressing post. I just wanted to share with you what I try to do to cheer myself up that either costs nothing or costs very little.

Books: Books are a great way to cheer myself up and a few other people too I do believe. The great thing about books is that they can actually be really cheap, and sometimes free if you know what you’re doing! Join a Library-Not only do they end up getting a lot of the newest books for you to borrow for free, a lot of Libraries will take requests for new books. A lot of Libraries also have books sales where they sell a lot of different items (not just books) at a heavily discounted price. Just recently I bought three dvds of movies I’ve been wanting for a while now for $6.00 ($2.00 each).

Walking/Dancing: I love to dance and lately I have been taking my dog for even more walks. When I go back to my Mums house, I feel like I NEED to take my dog for a walk, even though she’s little and we play a lot inside. Not only can both walking and dancing be done for free, but they both also release endorphin.

D.I.Y: I always find that over the years you tend to build up a collection of things that need to be done around the house. Now this can be expensive if you do it all in one go. Sometimes I find as well though when you think of the D.I.Y. projects that need to be done you go out and get that stuff. So over time it all builds up, including the materials you need for the project.

Series watching: Now what I mean by this is when you have a favourite television series and you just sit and watch it all day, or at least have it on in the background. Now this is a great idea for relaxing because watching or even just listening to a favourite show, has shown to relax and calm the mind down. I know myself, personally, I cannot fall asleep if I’ve watched something traumatic or some kind of horror film. One of the great things about this option is that there are so many different ways you can do this. Some retail outlet these days will have a deal, for example, 3 DVDS for only $30 (I recently did this one). Let alone the new streaming services. Which do cost a bit more money than a one-off, however, you can get great deals.

I did nearly put a bath in, to relax,…but the reason that I didn’t. It ultimately leads to your overall water bill and if you are anything like me. I usually end up staying in the bath for about 15 minutes. My partner can spend literally hours, but I just cannot do it.

I can’t believe that I am actually sad

Over the last month or so I have been working in a different location, but doing the same job and after next week everything changes! I go back to my usual work location and I have my new dream job training. I am still really sad though to be leaving where I’ve been working, my coworkers were lovely and I’ll miss the students cooking. Plus the work was regular and set days, instead of wondering week to week what, or if I’ll even get a shift.

There is comfort in regularity.

Friday Night Thinking and Drinking…

I was so disappointed to read this over the last week. I really love the outfits at Honey Birdette (expensive, but gorgeous) and I know that in the work place you should be presentable…BUT, in all honesty as well, I find that someone who is comfortable, can be the most sexiest thing on the planet!

‘Not Your Honey’ – When Sexual Empowerment Disempowers

It is not empowerment when women are forced to show their bras and wear stilettos just to keep their job. It is not empowerment when women are paid to have people talk to them in unwanted sexually explicit ways. It is not empowerment when women are scared to speak up about feeling uncomfortable in the workplace for fear of losing their job. This is not sexual empowerment. This is not even women empowerment. Silencing sexual harassment allegations and enforcing dress codes that play on sexualising women for the public (read as: male) gaze is disempowering.

 

Karma

KARMA:

I see a lot of people who want Karma towards a lot of people who have hurt them or harmed them in some way or another. By this it seems that a lot of people want them to have some big event or other (and sometimes for the other person to have this overwhelming need to apologise).

This is how I see Karma. It’s not a one big event thing and they more than likely are not ever going to apologise. Take comfort in this though. Every day they are living their Karma. Every day they have to live with being caught with their lie, or how they’ve hurt someone. They are feeling it, trust me. The only type of person who can hurt another and not feel it…Well that’s just psychopathic.

Take myself, for example. I had someone who decided to impress me by insulting his sister and his best friend, just to get into my pants, which did not work. I was then not invited to anymore parties and slowly I have not heard from anyone since (It’s a common theme for them. They do something wrong and you get “punished”) Now I could be hurt by this, except I feel sorry for him.

Can you imagine it? He doesn’t like his sister being there and he has to live with his friends saying disgusting things about her ALL THE TIME. Trust me he knows they are…How do I know this? Because he used to do it about other girls. You know the Trump “locker talk” stuff? Well they do that. Even if they didn’t too his face and I have seen some of them do it, he knows exactly what is going on. He must be SO pissed off. I don’t need need some big event, he must feel so alone, not being able to say he doesn’t actually want her around. Knowing the horrible things the say about her, knowing they don’t actually respect her, for her.

I don’t need to do a damn thing. If people wont talk to me about why I was suddenly not invited either, they have to live with that too. Which has happened to me over this situation as well. It’s not surprising, but it’s still disappointing.
