Did you know: more people die from air pollution than smoking?

Fair Planet.org – Walking the talk in beating air pollution “EDITOR:Bob Koigi, Nairobi

UN News – With a premature death every five second, air pollution in violation of human rights, says UN expert “WRITER Mungunkhishig Batbaatar”

Lolsy’s Library, what can I do to help beat air pollution?

  • Switching to walk, cycling or taking public transport. Too help reduce with fossil fuels and diesel.
  • Instead of making your backyard a pavement or cement wasteland…Think instead of planting trees and plants. Ones that are preferably native to your area.
  • Clean up trash and learn to recycle properly.
  • Check energy efficiency ratings on household items like dishwashers, heaters etc.
  • Watch your own energy outage (leaving lights on).
  • Take up or find out about “Join the Mask” challenge.

This or That? #39

this-or-that

This or That #39

Oh my Goodness! I completely love this weeks, this or that!

Would you rather…

Spend 24 hours in a fictional world

OR

Spend 24 hours with a fictional character

I have dreamt of both to these situation, it would be too embarrassing to admit, being an “adult”, how many times I have dreamt of both of these situations happening…Many…many…MANY times!

SO WHICH ONE DO I CHOOSE?!

I am going to have to go with spending 24 hours with a fictional character. The only problem I would have is, who do I spend the 24 hours with when it comes to my lifelong fictional crushes.

Legolas, Thorin, Judah Bow?! Who! Who do I chose?!

I’d probably have to go with Thorin…It might come as shock to some as I have been in love with Orlando Bloom since LotR, but he never was my favourite character in the movies. My favourite character in the movie was actually Pippen aka Billy Boyd. Whereas Thorin was my favourite character and to be honest I actually Legolas better in The Hobbit rather than the Lord of the Ring. I’d probably end up not being able to say anything to Thorin, but I don’t mind mooning over him, with a little exploring,lol

30 Days of Gratitude: Days 22 – 28

Day 22 – Conventions: Today started off with me feeling pretty down about a lot a of things. So going to the Supanova convention was exactly what I needed, but I was also grateful that I was able to attend this convention with good friends. What I didn’t expect was to feel as free as I did. Surrounded by people in a fun environment where I felt safe to be me, I felt free from the dramas of other people treating me like a second rate friend. If I had gone out drinking, or just clubbing I would have just gotten drunk.

Day 23 – Health – So last night I pretty much spent half the night throwing up due to some food poisoning and found that more than half the people I went out with had gotten it too. So I wasn’t feeling particularly grateful. Luckily though I realised if I was on the streets or in a third world country, what I went through last night, there was a serious chance that I could have died in the streets. As terrible as my stomach felt, it could have ended up a lot worse for me in a different situation.

Day 24 – Job Club – One of the requirements of not having a job in Australia is attending “Job Club” every week. Sometimes it can feel like such a chore, but I have a new case worker now and feel like he might be actually able to help me. I also got a call today from a potential employer, letting me know that the police check I sent (I sent in for a casual pool months ago) is now invalid and before they can even consider giving me employment I need a new police check…Feeling a little more positive today.

Day 25 – Ferguson: Well this has definitely been the hot topic on a global scale today and I don’t even live in America! As much as I am feeling like I want to stay indoors and be a hermit right now, I am feeling very grateful to be an Australian right now Apart from Abbott trying to ruin everything…We are pretty lucky… Let’s kick Abbotts butt! I can’t stand that guy,lol.

Peaceful Protest Ferguson!

Day 26 – Breakthrough: Last night I had such a breakdown and it was not a good one, I haven’t had one like that in a really long time. For 30 years I have realised how badly I’ve been treated by my ex’s and the damage that is pretty permanent now. It has made me though realise I need to seriously change a LOT in my life. I also need to stop dating Gamers…They are a lot of talk, but not so much about the ‘walk’,lol.

Day 27 – “The Fight”: I have been a bit down since I had to really say goodbye to my ex and let him know that I just do not trust him and after 30 yrs. I am honestly having a hard time trying to find something to be grateful for, other than realising how strong my heart is and how loyal it is to myself instead of ignoring what I need to do.

Day 28 – Thanksgiving: How ironic that 30 days of gratitude happens to fall on Thanksgiving. There is so much that I am grateful for although I am going through a bit of a bad patch right now. But I also know because of all that I am grateful for, I will make it through this too.
