The weirdness

My mum and I were just talking about how we hosted a Halloween Party two years ago. We definitely didn’t last year (haha) so it was the year before.

We were making fun of ourselves, because we had a wall of pictures of people who were real scary people and not as scary, so like Casper the Friendly. We run a test to see if they knew who was who. We thought that they were really easy to get. Everyone got the cartoon/animated type characters. But apart from Ted Bundy, they didn’t get the rest.

My mum and I had a “serious” talk with ourselves. Are we too addicted to crime, serial killers?

… Nah, it’s everyone else.

Do you have any weird interests or hobbies?

Interesting?

I don’t know how many of you know who Laura Ingraham? (Before I got any further…Laura Ingraham is NOT the same person as Lauren Ingram..Lauren is actually a FANTASTIC person! Somehow there names get mixed up and they are totally different people…Other than they are both blonde)

Anyways LAURA has been trending a lot lately because she is pretty much bullying the children from the Parkland Shooter…So of course the “lefties” and “liberals” are such terrible people for telling the companies that sponsor her “show” to drop their sponsorship and that we should boycott these companies if they don’t drop their sponsorship.

(Personally, I think we should all boycott Nestle anyway…They are NOT an ethical company).

This coming from the side that wanted to boycott Starbucks because they dared to write “Happy Holidays” on their cups…The ones that wanted to boycott the NFL for Kap kneeling against police brutality…The ones that support this “lady …

…Yes, she is spitting and grabbing her crotch after singing the “National Anthem”…That’s cool with them apparently…

Yes, these same people are saying we are the bad ones for wanting an ADULT to stop bullying CHILDREN.

How? Why?!

I would LOVE for a psychologist to sit down with them and talk to them…How they decide what is good or not? One person even said that people like David Hoggs were bullying THEM!

Let’s change it up!

Usually on a Thursday I do Cee’s Photography “Share Your World” Unfortunately Cee has been having trouble with her internet. So she’s had to rehash the questions she used from last week for this week as well. You can find the questions here though, if you’d like to give them a go.

Which means that I am going with something a little different this Thursday instead. I’m trying to keep positive in these last couple of weeks of the year. What I’d like to so is write about 5 of my favourite things. I was trying to find one of those “Get to know me” type, but I just wasn’t “feeling them” if that makes senses? So let’s talk about things us happy, but also why they do.

I’d also like to talk and share about things that make us happy, that people may not see coming! Let’s get to know the world a little bit more. Let’s mix it up a little bit! Feel free to tag me if you decide to do this or just write in the comments! I want to make these last two weeks of the holidays so happy.

Well not *that* Mix…I love their songs though!

  1. Favourite combination of foods: I LOVE…Absolutely love, especially and mainly only during Winter and before you ask or wonder, it is probably incredibly unhealthy (I don’t want to know) I love mixing two minute noodles (chicken flavoured of course) and mac’and cheese…It is SO yummy! Also full of the much comfort.
  2. Your favourite YouTube Channel…If you don’t watch YouTube…What is your favourite television show?: Mine has changed over the years, obviously. At the moment though my favourite YouTube channel to watch is “Simon’s Cat”.
  3. Your favourite movie right now: Right now it is Ferdinand…The Bull. I think because of my star sign (I’m a Taurus) I love Bulls. It’s just an adorable film and I would highly recommend it! Espeically over the holidays.
  4.  What is your favourite song right now?: I am really into Celtic music right now. One of the songs that I have on repeat is by “The Celtic Woman” and it’s called (let’s see if I can write this right) Teir Abhaile Riu.
  5. If you like to make food, what is your favourite food to make? If you don’t really making food, what is your favourite food?: There are these biscuits that I love to make. I always follow the recipes and then I make heaps of them and they all get eaten! Fudgy-wudgy chocolate cookies

An Accomplishment

40. Your Greatest Accomplishment 

Wow, this is hard one to think of, without sounding completely “up myself”. I think the greatest accomplishment is something that my brother actually said too me. I have a big heart and that seems a little in short supply these days. I think I was also very much brought to tears when my brother wrote it as well.

It’s not that we’re not close or don’t love each other, but we don’t usually…but we are totally “cool” with each other. I know that it meant something when he said it. Too me that is a huge accomplishment to have a good relationship with my brother. You see, if you knew my Dad’s side, they either all hate each other or they just don’t talk to one another.

So to have a normal type relationship with my brother feels like a really huge thing. In all honesty it feels like if you’ve got a family that not only can tolerate each other differences, but genuinely love each other too…That is just huge! I know how huge that is.

This is so funny, I was going to write about something completely different,lol

Every love is different

I like watching the Daily Pop when I can…I just enjoy the hosts, they seem like pretty alright people. For being in the entertainment industry they seem to be pretty both sided and that’s gotta be tough.

One of the topics they were talking about was an interview with A-Rod whose dating J-Lo and how he said it was definitely different from their other relationships. Which then opened up a conversation about love and how each relationship will be different.

I have to agree with the statement that especially in the beginning of a relationship, a lot of the times we feel “this is different” “this is it” and then over time it just kind of disappears…But I want to talk about love for a little bit. I’ve been in love probably three times. I’ve loved more about that. It’s an interesting though to be in love someone and just kind of love someone.

The most truest thing is though every love is different. I actually had an ex’s new girlfriend ask me if I thought he was ever going to grow up and she was thinking of breaking up with him. I explained to her that every relationship is different, how he was with me, will be different how he was with her. They’re married now, so I figure they worked it out,lol.

  • People have different life experiences.
  • People grow differently.

My Happy Place…

happy-place

Being a 32 year old woman, I have a h#11 of a lot of plush/stuff toys…and sometimes I honestly feel embarrassed by the amount I have. Then I have a bad night or day and they are just there and then I feel bad that I felt embarrassed. They are just one part of my happy place. The things they could say! I’ve never been very good at letting people in, when I’ve had a bad day or am just having a bad moment, they’re just there. I don’t have to explain, I don’t have to say anything, I can just hug them and cry into them.

I hope that everyone has a happy place … What is your happy place? If you feel comfortable to share, please do!

Everybody I’ve come across people with such a different variation of where their happy places are and it’s great. For some, very lucky friends of mine who live near the beach. They are constantly going for walks on the beach and the sunset pictures they post, they make me happy. For some, luckily, it is their workplace. I know that when I’ve been down my coworkers have given me some of the best laughs that I’ve ever had!

I hope that you have a good day

So I hope that you all had a great day yesterday however it was spent. Whether you celebrate it or not, and that’s all good. My day started off with excitement when we were woken up in the middle of the night, the people who lived across the road have a brush fence. We had a loud repetitive banging on the door and when we ventured out, the fence was on fire, and the fire was so fierce, that we actually thought that the house was on fire.

Which then kind of set the feeling for the day. I haven’t had to go to a partners family thing in a really long time. I think I’ve only actually had to do it once or twice, and I was exhausted!

I think one of the reasons I didn’t feel a Christmassy this year, was this whole “attack on Christmas thing”. This may come as a shock as some, but not everyone celebrates Christmas, for various reasons. The world is made of very different people, different backgrounds, different beliefs or “non-beliefs”. If they want to say Happy Holidays, they are absolutely allowed too…No one is making you say Happy Holidays. Say Merry Christmas if you want, but understand something…

NOT EVERYTHING REVOLVES AROUND YOU

NOT EVERYONE CELEBRATES CHRISTMAS

IT’S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT YOU

I think it’s the main reason I LOVE celebrating Christmas with my Mum’s side, we just are so laid-back, if someone’s late, or if someone ‘accidentally’ says “Happy Holidays” it’s perfectly fine.

Peas in a Pod

I had a really bizarre day yesterday, it was roller coaster at seeing the bad, the good and the mentally unhealthily obsessive with the “Hollywood” culture…And it got me thinking of a situation that I went through and have come through.

What is it with people and this whole…Two people do the exact same thing and yet, people can condemn one and revere the other? There was a situation I found myself publicly shamed, yet someone else came along, only a year or so later, did the same thing and they were revered. I have to say I did not feel ashamed having a one night stand (and it was the first time I’d ever had one) and did not realise that it’s something I should be ashamed of, or was other people’s business. The same situation kept happening, to the point I have nothing to do with this group anymore.

It’s always bugged me though, mainly because I guess because I don’t see it just with me anymore. I see it pretty much every where I go. It’s something I don’t understand. Sure if it’s someone I love and respect, I might be a bit shocked and try to understand. I just don’t get it.
