You are right Piers Morgan, Meghan Markle is not the Queen

I think it’s the only thing that PM has ever gotten right about anything. The Queen would not have reacted the same way as MM did, as MM and the Queen are two different people. In a lot of different ways. In fact, what PM said about MM, ironically, has a lot to do with why people dislike the Royal Family.

A lot of people see the Royal Family as cold and cruel, and have no feelings. So yes, the Queen probably would react differently to how a new mother, who never grew up in the royal family for literal decades, would react.

I always find it interesting. When someone says something without thinking and thus proving why people feel the way they do.

What a day!

Have you ever had a day where you just one moment, you’re just up and then you’re down, and then you’re up and down and shake it all about.

When I woke up yesterday morning, I was looking at the fashions of the VMA awards, enjoying them and then “bop” Depp made an appearance and said something like “I’m available for parties, barbecues” blah blah…Ewwwwwwwwwwww, that’s what a bunch of young people want. A creepy old man who wants to have sex with corpses and put out naked pictures of his now ex-wife” hovering above them. Looking for his new girlfriend. Honestly, I think America is just a different planet. But then again, maybe the young girls of America don’t even like him. It could just be the media.

But then the best news came in…

Chris Dawson.

Chris Dawson found guilty of murdering ex-wife Lynette in The Teacher’s Pet trial: as it happened

Then I became sad again, as you might see above why. When Lynette Dawson “disappeared” she “left behind two young daughters. Who would probably be about 40ish now. So for a moment, I wanted to cry at work when I found out, but then I wanted to cry for different reasons after I thought about it.

Then I went up again and DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMNNNNN Taylor Swift, I love your burns. You know if I was an artist, I would probably do all the little Easter eggs and subtle hints as well. I am so happy for her! For YEARS West AND the Kardashians hounded that girl, and for what? Because HE made himself look a total moron.

Taylor Swift fans believe her MTV VMAs look was a reference to infamous Kanye West feud

We are a grumpy lot, lol

I am the first to admit that I tend to get grumpier these days, but it’s all over totally legit reasons, lol

I don’t know (obviously) if your computers have the same thing that my personal and work computer do. On the taskbar below, we have a weather things and when you hoover over it, it shows a lot of different news stories.

Well, the public can react to these new stories, and while I understand that a lot of media is either Murdoch controlled, or a lot is just bad/lazy journalism. Gee, a lot of good stories makes people angry. Maybe that’s part of the problem, people who have all this time on their hands, can’t see a good news story for being happy.

Some stories I’ve seen angry faces too:

A penguin protector retiring – The main complaint, anti-climate people.

Starlink Satellites – People complaining about the Scientist’s and astrologers, rightly, issuing warning’s about these Starlink Satellites. These satellites may help with out internet connections, but they’re run by people like Elon Musk. So they’re not necessarily climate safe, and they hide actual stars.

I think what gets me, is that when I see the actual reasons that these “people” are angry. It isn’t ever because, you know, the satellites are hiding actual stars. They’re angry at the Scientist and the Astrologists for correctly pointing out the issues.

And I am not even kidding, there were a lot of angry faces at Bridal trends since the 40’s.

Where do we go from here?

Yesterday was…well..it was a day wasn’t it.

I feel asleep crying, woke up saw Texas wanted to cry again. Lunch break I got angry.

Waking up to the news in Texas was heartbreaking enough, but then as the day went on, it just got worse. How are we in 2022 and people are still this cruel?

Firstly someone on the right and anti-trans, decided to photoshop the picture of a completely innocent trans women, onto the body of the shooter. This trans women doesn’t even live in America, let alone Texas. It got SO bad that a lot of the anti-trans “leaders” had to tell their followers to stop sharing the picture. WHY would you have to tell your followers this? Unless you know what was happening WAS WRONG.

And then anti-trans “people” got mad at trans people who were obviously upset about it.

On top of which State Farm decided to back out helping with books for LGBT kids. Because when the Right hear “LGBT” they automatically hear “everyone’s having sex”. Of course when you point out what the books are actually about you’re called a “pervert” and asked why are you sexualising children. Of course, Facebook, Twitter, do zippo.

What it means to me <3

I see a lot of bloggers talking about the coming of Spring. Spring is my favourite weather =D I can’t blame them, but here, down under, we’re heading into the darkness that is Winter!

I actually used to really enjoy Winter, but in the last few years. I do not enjoy the darkness that Winter brings, but this year I want to change my entire mindset to Winter! There are many things to enjoy about Winter, it’s all about the mind. I think what I dislike about Winter the most is the darkness, how when you leave for the day it’s dark, when you go home, it’s dark.

But there’s nothing stopping me from bringing the light inside. I don’t mean the lights in the house.

I mean like, what’s stopping me from wearing light colours? Like your yellows, pinks, rainbows =D It’s not “stylish”, but I’m not stylish, lol

Make a plan a couple of nights to sit on the couch, watching t.v., reading a book. All snuggled up with a blanket, and I have a lot of those!

A lot of planning meals. Sometimes the weather is way to horrible to go food shopping after work. So planning in advance, means that there is less chance of needing to go to the shops.

And now that I have my Grans fake log heater. I can just put the light on that, I don’t even need to put the heating part on. Hot chocolate. A lot of the time, by Easter, it’s cold and a little chilly. We have the bigger heater on. It sounds so cozy already.

Long baths…with a hot chocolate.

Writing by fake log fire…with a hot chocolate, haha

5 ThingsTuesday: Feelings / Emotions you felt most often during the Pandemic — Salted Caramel

The Covid 19 Pandemic is far from over. It has been around for 14 to 18 months (depending on when it hit your region). This is long enough for you to recognise the feelings/emotions you have experienced most often. Desolation When the first lockdown was imposed in my city in March 2020, it came at […]

5 ThingsTuesday: Feelings / Emotions you felt most often during the Pandemic — Salted Caramel

Over at the lovely Dr Tanya (Salted Caramel) she has asked this week (on Tuesday though…For 5 things Tuesday) 5 Things Tuesday: Feelings / Emotions you felt most often during the Pandemic” Now normally I might write these feelings in the comments. However, I decided this time to make a post about it. I think I’ve said bits and pieces how I went. And please head over to Salted Caramel, to write about your feelings and emotions =D

When it first happened, the first emotion I felt was uncertainty and for most people to begin with, there was a lot of that. Within my own circle though, even though everything was new, most people were able to keep their job. So, for a lot of people around me, nothing changed that much. However, I was a casual and had lost my job, because of COVID, my/our contracts just happened to end at the same time. At that time, we thought when everything “calmed down”, we’d all be asked back. Apart from myself, nothing really huge changed. I did lose my dog, my job, a baby tooth and I had to get a new handbag. None of those had anything to do with COVID.

So it wasn’t until about September/October last year that I even started to really depressed. That was because it became really obvious that none of the casuals were being hired back. They hired all new casuals. I don’t know why, but that’s what they did. This when it really started to hit, as a casual, I’m used to not working and the Government had finally brought is some more relief payments. At the time I was getting as much money as if I had worked at work for about 3-4 days full time. So money wasn’t a issue. My partner was still working, my Mum was still working. I don’t actually know anyone who lost employment due to COVID. When I realise though they weren’t hiring us back. That’s when it started to hit me.

One of the saddest I became (apart from my dog obviously) was that all the Libraries were pretty much shut for a couple of months. Which for myself was a “annoyance”, I love taking a walk whether or not I’m returning books. I also love just walking around seeing if there was anything else I’d like, also no one had…or still has…a working printer. The Libraries had a skeleton staff, so we got any books we took out, for longer. I ended up reading books that I had bought, but hadn’t read yet. I think I missed the atmosphere of the Libraries. Most of the time, if I was going to the Library, I would go and have a look in the equivalent to the 99c or $1 type stores. It’d be like a little trip out.

I was happy though quiet a few times, because I thought my partner and I would drive each other nuts. We got on really well though. I don’t live with my partner right now. There would be times though, where I had to stay with him. So there would be times, where I would be happy.

Snuggle Up!

There has to be someone in the neighborhood with a open fireplace. At night lately, when I open the front door I can smell that open fireplace. Even though I’m standing there with the door open and it’s freezing still. Somehow the smell of that fireplace makes me feel warm. Which makes me wonder if I could get that scent, and a fake fireplace, how much would that trick my brain into feeling warm.

Have you ever managed to trick your brain into something?

We have to talk about Halloweenie

Now, I am neither American, and I think I’m about 1/16th Irish. However, I really love Halloween. I can’t explain, I’m terrible with actually scary movies. Not your Addams family, and nightmare before Christmas. I’m talking more your Freddie’s and Jason’s.

Not too mention this whole year, has felt like a whole horror film, all by itself.

Is anyone else having the same problem? I don’t know about yourselves, even though Australia doesn’t really “celebrate” Halloween. We’re already starting to get Christmas stuff in the store! I looooooooove Christmas! But even the mid of October is a bit early for me.

Are you an empath?

*If you follow me on Instagram. You probably saw my post about this topic. As I wrote on the post, I wanted to write about this topic, with a little more oompfh.*

Too begin with, there are two type of empaths. There are the type that feel for others, so you see a situation and while you might not understand what they’re dealing with. You feel for them. You can feel the pain that they are feeling. You get why they’re fighting for what they’re fighting for.

The other are people who can almost actually read your mind. They are what is called an empath psychic. A lot of these types can see certain things, like, you might of heard of people who can see colours around people or auras’. We all have one certain colour that surrounds us, but empath psychic can see our colours change when we feel pain, happiness, sadness etc.

Also, for each empath, clearly there are empath’s who feel different areas more strongly than other areas. So there are people like medical empath’s, as an example.

Basically Empath’s are people who literally feel for others.

Now, the issue I really have with people who say “I am totally an empath, because I have strong feelings so I am expert on others’ feelings”. Having strong feelings doesn’t automatically make you an empath. Narcissists, as an example, think they have strong feelings. I would never call a Narcissist an empath,lol. But I’ve known a lot of Narcissists in my life, who do call themselves empaths, because they have strong feelings.

Now, I don’t mind if you have strong feelings, we all do, we’re human after all. My issue is when you going around using a platform to use your “strong feelings” and then talk and spread your misinformation.

If your an empath and you’re using your platform to say “Don’t make me feeling guilty if I need a break from BLM, because I need a mental break” and then continue to complain, about how people are making you feel guilty. Now Empath’s, like myself, do feel guilty if we need to take a mental health day, because we KNOW that we haven’t had to deal with the racism for hundreds if not thousands of years. If you’re only getting involved with BLM NOW, you’ve literally been dealing with it for about a month,lol. Not hundreds of years, so yeah, to complain that people make you feel guilty for needing a day off, is kind of ridiculous and not empathetic.

An empath, by the way, has been feeling BLM, before BLM, became a “thing.”

Empath’s, At the same time, are aware that we can still do something even when we need a “day off”. You can do things that don’t require you to go on social media, that don’t require you to go out and protest. Buy or go to your local library and grab that POC author book, you may have not read before. Get old clothes together, to give to charity. Old toys to give to vulnerable children. Make some home cooking for your elderly neighbour. Write a well written letter to your Representative, that peaceful protesters are being arrested for BLM marches, ignoring their 1A RIGHTS to peacefully protest. While white people with guns, hang effigies of their local representative…were not. See, you don’t NEED to go onto social media, at all.

An empath, already knew this. So chances are, you’re not an empath.

It’s perfectly fine to not be an empath, it’s not like it makes you insensitive to people, it doesn’t. You still have feelings, just empaths tend to have stronger feelings for OTHERS, not just strong feelings in general. But please, do not go saying you are one, spreading misinformation so you can be part of a “fad”. That’s what you’d be doing.

Questions:

Must we have evidence to know the truth?

Ahhh…In a court room, you usually do need evidence. Generally though, a lot of the time, we don’t always need evidence. In fact, some people just ignore it all together *cough Trump was not exonerated* *cough there are more than two genders*. Personally, sometimes I don’t need evidence to know the truth, but it is helpful.

How much control does a person have over their life?

I think about 65% control,lol. We have control over certain things, but we don’t have control over everything. We don’t have control how others choose to treat us, we don’t have control over people to give us that job we really want. We do have control over, if we don’t get the job we wanted, what’s our next step then? We can control how we react to others. Then there are things like cancer, having anxiety feels like you don’t have control sometimes. But we can control, as an example, getting yearly checkups, watching how we treat our bodies. I have reasonably high cholesterol, as does most of my family. So I’m on tablets right now, but I can control my diet and exercise to help bring it down too.

What is gravity and how does it work?

Well gravity, in space, makes you float. Gravity on earth means that we don’t float. It has something to do with how fast earth goes around the sun. I want to ask my partner, he’s a physics teacher. But I’m going to answer it on my own…Can you tell?lol. It has something to do with the sun pulling on earth. Or any planet really.

Can a person be happy if they have never experienced sadness?  How about vice versa?

Of course! I don’t know, but sure,lol. It’s hard to think of anyone who hasn’t experienced both of those, who I can think of.


Gratitude:

Please feel free to share a song, a poem, a quote or an image or photo to show what you were grateful for during this past week.    (Optional as always).

The control question actually inspired me to apply for potential jobs. I’ve always thought that I would do really well at a doggy day care centre, or something similar. So I cold-canvassed a couple of places today. The worst they can say is no, right? At least they have my information and can tell my enthusiasm, if they want.
