30 Day writing challenge … Day 18

18. Post 30 facts about yourself

  1. I’m pretty open on here really. I don’t really hide that much on here, and I don’t think that I’m that interesting to be honest,lol. I am a basic biotch.
  2. The word biotch is the only thing I’ve kept from my time of liking Khloe Kardashian.
  3. I have liked all the Kardashians/Jenners at some point…All, but never Kim. Also, I don’t like any of them anymore…Except for Scott, funnily enough. I really like him. He’s a character. He should has his own show, but I don’t think he could handle it.
  4. I wish I was more confident with my body. I would like to do a boudoir picture for my picture for my partner…But I would just start laughing.
  5. Even though I’ve been told in the past, that I’m annoyingly sexy. I have never felt sexy, as a person.Cute, but never sexy,lol…By annoyingly, they meant, because I don’t even realise how sexy I am,lol.
  6. When I take a good selfie of myself, there are probably about 10 more after and/or before where I make stupid faces purposely…and sometimes I keep them!lol
  7. I annoy myself, because I would love to be a vegan…But just can’t make myself.
  8. I can’t eat anything that has eyes on it still (so like prawns/shrimps. Those spit roasts).

  10. I used to play the piano, but my brother actually played it well.
  11. I think The Golden Girls may be the best tv show ever!
  12. Then Death in Paradise and Poirot
  13. I love running my own Discord channel…*hint hint* There’s not a lot of people on it, but it’s been a lot of fun! I love having the responsibility of having to come up with ideas to talk about. It keeps me distracted. Thinking about other things, other than the harshest of life.
  14. I think Kim Jong Un was in a coma
  15. I think I’m allergic to calamari, but I don’t want to find out. So I can still eat it.

  18. I had never heard the song “We’ll meet again”until I went to my Poppa’s funeral, a bit over 10 years ago now.
  19. I have really enjoyed the live action movies. Not better than the animated ones, but still really enjoyed them.
  20. I love plushies, after Pippy, they are the best to hug! They don’t complain like my partner and cat,lol
  21. If I won a big lottery, I would probably have a room full of plushies, and Charlie Bears,lol.
  22. I would LOVE to swim with whales.
  23. And stay with a pride (if I wouldn’t get eaten, which I probably would).

QUESTIONS:

When was the last time you tried something new?

Food wise, I am always trying new food and to try to cook something these days. Adventures type wise, I haven’t done anything new for quiet a long time. I guess it also depends on what “new” is. Next week, I am seeing David Suchett (most famously plays Hercule Poriot_ talk about his career and I haven’t gone to one of those for years! The venue is not very comfortable or breathes easily, which is tough for someone with newly-ish developed anxieties. So it’ll be a new thing for some reasons, but also old.

If you were forced to eliminate every physical possession from your life with the exception of what could fit into a single backpack, what would you put in it?

I want to say my furbabies, but I guess that depends on what people would consider possessions. I personally don’t,lol. THEY ARE THE BABIES, NO MATTER HOW OLD THEY GET!

A single backpack, can I carry some too?lol…I would have to have at least favourite photo of everyone I care about. Probably at least two of my favourite books. I just don’t know which ones,lol.

Probably some of my favourite earrings/jewellery. Clean underwear.

What simple fact do you wish more people understood?

A meme is not a fact. If you’re going talk about truth and facts, then you have to back yourself up with them. Especially now.

What food item do you go through fastest in your house?  (credit to Sandmanjazz)

I have just discovered Philadelphia cream cheese, sweet chilli flavour pour-over dip. Freaking A! I discovered it probably about November last year. I have two containers of it at my mums and two at my partners,lol.

GRATITUDE (Not mandatory for participation)

Please feel free to share something that really makes you happy!  

My partner gave my feet a little gentle rub. It felt REALLY nice. After being sick, work being at it’s crazy busy time. It’s the one time he did it, and it felt good,lol.

Secrets…Shh…

42 secrets you never knew about the Titanic and the people aboard it.

  • The Titanic sank on April 15, 1912 – 108 years ago.

  • The wreck was discovered 34 years ago on September 1, 1985.

  • While there have been many movies, books, and research about the ship, you might be surprised to hear these secrets of the Titanic and those onboard.

  • From a cellist who wasn’t declared officially dead until 2000 to the divorces that the sinking ended up causing, the Titanic affected the world in a multitude of unexpected ways.

  • One hundred and six years ago, one of the most famous – and deadliest – disasters took place.

On April 15, 1912, at 2:20 a.m., what was deemed one of the most luxurious and safe ships ever built, hit an iceberg and sank off the coast of Newfoundland, taking more than 1,500 lives. The ship, the world’s largest passenger ship at the time, was on its maiden voyage, headed from Southampton, England, to New York City.

It would take 73 years for the ship’s wreckage to be found. Dr. Robert Ballard and scientist Jean-Louis Miche located the remains of the Titanic on September 1, 1985.

While the tragedy has inspired myriad movies, books, and articles, the ship and its passengers still hold secrets and little-known facts that might surprise you.

Keep reading to remember the Titanic and those onboard, and learn more about those affected by the tragedy.

Nurture Thursday – Did you know?

I’m not sure I can find something a beautiful as On Dragonfly Wing with Buttercup Tea, but I’m going to try!

Nurt Thur – Did you know?

Don’t ever let anyone tell you that one person cannot make a difference.

One Person Laid the Seeds for an Entire Forest

Sebastião Salgado grew up in Minas Gerais, Brazil—full of beautiful rain-forests. He left  to become a photographer, and returned to his hometown, in 2000, to discover that only 0.5% of forest remained. Salgado founded Instituto Terra in 1998, planting more than 2 million seedlings of more than 290 species of trees and plants. In 20 years, 1,500 acres of rainforest have been recovered, and 293 species of plants, 15 reptile species, 172 bird species, 15 amphibian species, and 33 mammal species have returned.

QUESTIONS:   

What would be your solution to the over-population of the earth?   Earth has finite resources and humanity seems to be breeding themselves to extinction.   Some countries have tried restricting the number of children a couple or a person can have, with little success.  So what other viable options are there for reducing the number of people? 

I honestly have no idea. We seem to be going backwards in that regard, meaning, forcing women to give birth more and more.

Okay, the rest will be ‘recycled’ questions.   I got a Sunshine Blogger Award recently and I thought some of the questions on that post were kinda nifty.   So “recycle”!  

What’s invisible but you wish people could see?

This is going to be lame…I wish people could see love and hope. I feel that they are so important for people when the world is horrible.

What’s the most ridiculous fact you know?

I think because I live in Australia, this one has some resonance with me. You are more likely to be killed by a falling coconut, than a shark.

Death by Coconut

What are the unwritten rules of where you work? If you don’t work (retired or unemployed) what are the unwritten rules you live your life by?

We’re not supposed to come on sites, like WordPress, especially if Managers are around. Mine are training newbies right now, but they’re off exploring at the moment…But when it gets quiet, everyone has a non-work site that they go onto. WordPress is usually mine.

How do you feel about putting pineapple on pizza?

Oh, I LOVE pineapple on Pizza…Yes, I am one of THOSE weirdos!lol…I have two usual favourites. One is Hawaiian and the other is chicken BBQ. Actually I’m not sure if the chicken BBQ one has pineapple, but I still really love it!

Toilet paper, over or under?

I always forget how I do it when I see this question, but I think it’s over? I put it so people have to take it from the top.

What’s the best type of cheese?

Jarlsberg Swiss cheese, with the holes in them. Freaking delicious!


GRATITUDE

If you’d like, please share something positive, uplifting or funny from last week.   We can always use some more of those things! 

I posted a picture on Instagram and I had 3 (lucky 3), strangers tell me I am ridiculous good looking and pretty,lol. Made me feel good when I’ve been sleeping all weird, all week,lol.

Orangutan Day!

When my brother and I were younger, my Gran used to call us her little Orangutans. When we were unsure of something or someone, we hold onto each other.

Dr Pol Monkey GIF by Nat Geo Wild - Find & Share on GIPHY

First fact, it is extremely hard to get a gif with an Orangutan in it’s natural habitat, or just natural surrounding area.

Orangutans are not “monkeys” they are considered to be a great ape. They also share 97% of DNA in common with us.

In Malay and Indonesian orang means “person” and utan is derived from hutan, which means “forest.” Thus, orangutan literally means “person of the forest.”

They are considered critically endangered.

One of the biggest threats facing Orangutan’s is deforestation. The main reason that people are cutting their trees down, is for palm oil. So, beware of products that have palm oil in it. I was going to write a list, but apparently they can sneak palm oil into a lot. Mainly because palm oil is supposedly healthier for us…Humans. As the WWF site says though:

But you don’t have to give up products containing palm oil! Avoiding palm oil could have worse effects because it might take support away from companies that are trying hard to improve the situation. This could encourage companies to use other products that may have even more impact on the environment. Palm oil is by far the most efficient vegetable oil to grow as it takes less land to produce than other vegetable oils. Palm oil can be produced in a responsible manner that respects the environment and the communities where it is commonly grown.

You know…You know?

A couple of weeks ago now I wrote a post about Georgia and their new abortion Laws. One comment I made about that post was about, I felt a little like why was I writing the post. Because the people who already get that PP, especially, don’t just do abortions. It is, in fact, one of the smaller services that they perform/provide. Reading some peoples’s “ideas” about PP you’d think PP is having women coming in and out a revolving door, that never ends, and it’s all PP do. It’s just not true. But you can’t tell them this, they don’t want to know.

My mum and I have conversations like that all the time. Where we are talking to each other, but get annoyed at others who just don’t “get it”.

We both love Russell Brand, he’s such an interesting human being and we’ve only just recently discovered that he has a podcast and of course, it’s amazing. I can’t remember who he was talking too, but he was talking to a teacher of psychology. The teacher was saying that in the last 5 years he has noticed a huge increase in psychology students getting notes from their local Doctors, about how they don’t have to do any public speaking. He said that about 5 years ago, there might be one or two…if that…Now it’s nearly half the class.

They were talking about as the generations come along, they are becoming weaker, and on some level I do agree. I also do blame social media for it as well though. I even blame people like myself. My brother apparently know gets anxiety issues sometimes, and I wonder if it’s because of me. Then I tell myself, it probably is and it makes me so angry because everyone keeps telling me to step up for him. No, I had figure it out for myself what triggers me, what my problems really are. If he really has it, then literally no one else can figure it out, but himself. I should not step up. Doesn’t mean I have to be nasty, but you can’t really step up for others. You can support, but you can’t force your life onto someone else’s.

The reason it make me angry is 1) He’ a hypochondriac (like our Dad). You say the word flu or cold, I guarantee he’ll have it the next day. The weird thing is if he actually has something wrong, he wont take the whole medication. It’s just weird. He keeps saying he can’t fly to our state, but he can to Sydney? It’s just weird. 2) He keeps turning down any solution and keeps saying things like “I can get over this myself”. When you have anxiety, you don’t want it. You don’t do nothing about it? 3) When I had my really bad day a couple of weeks ago now. AFTER I publicly said said I wasn’t coping. He publicly humiliated me about three times in that same week. Things that wouldn’t normally bother me, but not a good time at that time. The last time my Mum said did I watch the rest of the Instagram stories, I lost it,lol.

The reason I bring up my brother though as well. Everyone expects me to take care of him, why? To get to the place I have gotten to, is because I fought and am still fighting my anxiety. I don’t expect others to do it for me. I listen (or read) other people’s solutions and I see if they’ll work for me. When I face an anxiety issue and I get through it, I don’t turn around and go “Oh well, never doing that again” I keep doing it, to make sure I become comfortable with it.

Support is fantastic and never underestimate it. Don’t just throw the support to the side.

But like my brother, how is the Doctor giving those student notes, instead of making them face their issues…Going to help? I can’t get over that they are psychologist students, lol…You know, you know?

Writing all of that, got a lot of frustrations off my chest then…But I bet you all knew that already!

 

Walk Away

So I got into a discussion after this guy proclaimed proudly the reason why people walk away from the Democrats is because Democrats generalise Republicans as this horrible bunch of people. They also put the hashtag #factsmatter…With no actual facts,lol…I came along and broke it down for him.

The Republicans KILLED Trump called them fine people. Kapernick kneels and Trumps says him lock him up even though the kneeling has nothing to do with the military. He openly mocks Dr Ford, he openly mocks female reporters. He endorses criminals and rapists. (I actually had a discussion about Heather and this Republican swears he doesn’t know who she even is -.-)

The Republicans yell “Pro-Life” and abortion is murder while giving their mistresses drugs to kill their unborn babies. Most Republicans are saying that is a women drinks she deserves to be raped. Trumpters have a stereotype for a reason. You call Michelle and Obama Gorillas.

Trump has bragged about his sexual assaults on others. Republicans cry “Pro-Life” and then are all for having children locked into cages, while their parents are trying to escape from war torn countries.

That’s all just this year…

Too from Democrats is to walk away from your humanity.
