Share Your World … Week 37

(I’m just warning you all, this ones a bit long!)

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewellery?

I don’t think that I have really ever owned a pet rock or jem that is Jewellery. I do remember once someone giving me a very pretty rock that was painted beautifully, but I never considered it to be a pet. I had a lot of plush toys, so I never really needed a rock pet, I guess?

What is your greatest strength or weakness?

Strength – A lot of people say that I am one of those people who is just there for others. I think it’s one of my strengths, sometimes I don’t even realise how weird it is how I’m there for people. One particular situation that stood out was after I broke up with an ex, there were all these girls who thought he was going to date them…And he didn’t, and they all came to me, trying to hurt me initially I guess, to get back at him? I managed to turn it around and ended up being their friend. I felt kind of bad for them really, he cheated on me with all these girls, but he also clearly made them feel like they were “the one”. He didn’t seem to really care how much he had led them on either. I helped them and I was over him before they were.

Weakness – As strong as I feel these days and I feel I can stand more on my own when it comes to my point of views and beliefs. I wish I just didn’t have so many “triggers”! There are some topics, especially on Facebook where I still get really wound up and get emotional with people and their comments, instead of just ignoring it. I recently unliked a page because of their refusal to even acknowledge, that men do in fact suffer from family and domestic violence.

What makes you feel grounded? 

Spending some times with my furbabies, they just want love really…Except for the cat, sometimes he just want food and for me to let him in and out of the house (we rent, so we can’t put in a cat flap). Other then them, I love having a shower and/or bath and listen to music that takes me away, like Enya, anything Celtic, anything “mythical”, if that is even a music genre,lol.

Would you rather never be able to eat warm food or never be able to eat cold food?

I think I would rather not eat cold food again, although a lot of salads are “cold”…Or are they more neutral? I love having hot food during Winter, it makes me feel warm on the inside, which then radiates through the rest of me. Whereas I don’t really feel like that with cold food, except for maybe ice blocks/ice cream.

Blog Block!

I have been really struggling to find, at least, anything interesting to blog about today! So what better way to try unblock myself than to talk about Blog Block!

What do you like to do to unblock yourselves? In the writing sense of course! Or creative block!

I like to listen to music, but when I have a block and I determined to write, I have to listen to a certain type of music. Usually it’ll be something Celtic or “mystical” I love Enya. Taking me to another place, even if it’s just in my mind, can really get my creative juices flowing. Some people think it’s weird that because I love to play games, I don’t just play some computer games to unblock myself? It is weird, I don’t use games to unblock my writers block because when I play games, my brain tends to be thinking differently when I play games. I think playing games is a different kind of relaxation. Sometimes it’s not relaxing to play computer games at all, it can be intense!

One of my favourite performers of all time and she is great when I really need my “mind to get away” (if that makes sense) is Enya (you might all know her best from the Lord of the Rings as the singer of “May it Be”. My very favourite of hers though and one I really love to listen to when I am in a particular bind is “Wild Child”.

 

I pray to Music

So I was ask the question today “What music am I ashamed to admit that I like” and I gave back my honest answer “I don’t have any”. I like Marilyn Manson just as much as I enjoy Enya and I enjoy Rammstein (can’t understand a word they say) just as much as I have enjoyed songs from One Direction. I love Selena Gomez as much as I love Joan Jett.

I love what I love.

I don’t really understand this whole if you like a certain type of music there’s something wrong or right with you. To me music is about how it makes you feel, how you relate to it. I feel sometimes that I am the only one that still feels like music is about how it touches your life. If it makes you sad, glad or mad.

So when someone tells you suck for liking the music that you do, play this in your head!

Middle Week Slump

I have always been one of those people who has always hated Wednesdays. It’s not the beginning of the week when you feel (slightly) ready to get into a whole new week and it’s not close enough to start enjoying the end of the week. Although I am aware of in some industries like hospitality and retail, they don’t really get “weekends”.

Sometimes though I have been wondering I am the only person who actually dislikes Wednesdays? Even when a friend sends me a “Happy Hump Day” picture, doesn’t normally getting me going. Since I’ve stopped my blogging challenge I am struggling to find something to blog about that is not on a Friday or Monday as well.

Today I have just been having idea after idea in my mind and  for some reason I am lacking the motivation to get these ideas started. It is almost like I have so many ideas it’s overwhelming unmotivating. I am starting to wonder if it is a good idea for me to start a fantasy novel, I don’t know if there is a set age date and I have no formal training to do so. I was listening to Enya all day and when I wasn’t working I had “The Hobbit” on in the background and I started to imagine a love interest for Thorin in my mind. Then during the rest of the day I started to create a back story for her, I came up with an perfect name and came up with a whole new race in Middle Earth. I am seriously considering investing in a smaller laptop (Notebook) just to write and get these ideas down and see what I can create!

I guess I’m writing to find out…How do you get past that mid week slump (if you have one)?
