Questions:

Where do you feel most at home?  Please be more specific than “at home, doh” please. It could be a room in your home, a person, a location…    

I wish I hadn’t said anything now!lol…However, I was thinking about this question a lot. I think that where I feel most at home, where ever my heart feels the safest. See, I have my anxiety attacks when I feel uncomfortable or unsafe. So when I don’t feel like I’m about to have a heart attack, I must feel safe there.

Would you rather ride a bike, ride a horse, or drive a car?   

Well I’m scared of horses, and I’m still learning to drive. Riding a bike, would also help to get me healthier =D

What song would you sing on “Karoke Night” (if you were forced to do so)?    

I don’t really have a “song”. I just like to drink and then sing to anything. I do seem to sing to Bon Jovi at lot though. Not well, mind you,lol

University or life experience, which do you feel best prepares you for life?  

Probably life itself. While University is great if you want to become say a teacher, or a doctor, or part of a trade. How many times have we seen though, people with degrees or doctorates coming from say Harvard or Yale, just not really actually good with people.

I have decided to go with the Muggles questions this week. I just liked them better,lol

Melanie’s Muggle Questions:

I’m very short on time today (Sunday) so I’m borrowing from Rory and Sandmanjazz to fill the questions today:

Do our fears start with our DNA?  (Credit to Rory)

I think so. I have this joke, that my sane side is thanks to my mum, and my crazier side is due to my Dad’s. It’s my mum’s side, that keeps my Dad’s inherited crazy side, sane,lol

If you could have your hair any colour for 24 hours, what colour would you choose?  (Credit to Sandmanjazz)

When do you think a person gets old?  (Credit to Rory)

I am very much of the thinking that you’re as old as you feel. Wait…Is that right? Some days I feel old, and then other days I feel younger than my age, then some other days I feel exactly my age.

GRATITUDE SECTION  (as always this is optional)

Please feel free to write about an uplifting moment in your life this week!

I know that I’m posting this on September 11th. However, considering the current state of US affairs. With the Covid 19 deaths, now at least triple, if not more than the deaths on the 11th. I’m grateful your still here to read my blog. It’s means your safe, America seems really scary right now!

Muggle Questions (from Melanie):

What is the last song you sang along to?

“Not Ready to Make Nice” by the Dixie Chicks.

What was your scariest nightmare about?

I still can remember my scariest nightmare. It was all in black and white. I was tiny *think Honey I shrunk the kids* and I was getting eating alive by a snail. Even to this day I always freak out a little bit when I see a snail,lol.

What food do you crave most often?

Lasagna, Lasagna….LASAGNA

What’s your grossest bug story?

Apart from killing mosquitoes, filled with my blood. I don’t think I really have any.

I choose to go with the plain questions, as I am not a fan of the Harry Potter author,lol. She makes me feel physically ill. 

“Plain” Questions:

Would You Rather Live 120 Years That Are Comfortable But Boring, Or Live Half As Long, But Have An Exciting Adventure Packed Life?

I think I would like to live the 120 years, but boring life. Nothing wrong with boring, as long as well though, I live alright into my 120 years. No point if I’m a vegetable or something.

What’s Something That Overwhelms You?

Twitter can sometimes overwhelm me. I start to realise after a bit, that I am just on it a bit TOO much. Then when I hop off of it, I feel so much better and then for the first couple of weeks, I don’t really go on…Then something always sucks me back in.

What Do or DID You Take For Granted?

I try not too, and I can’t remember the last time I did. But I think the thing I take mostly for granted is probably time. It has a lot to do with fear. Fear of myself, fear that I will fail. I guess in that way I take time for granted, no one is guaranteed the next day. I really have to get over my fears.

Gratitude:   Please feel free to share some gratitude moments or thoughts you’ve had recently.  This section is entirely optional.

Questions:

Where Do You Not Mind Waiting?

You know what, I don’t mind waiting at the Doctors. For some reason waiting at a Doctors seem to piss a lot of people off. If I’m at the Doctors to just get a prescription for a pill, I don’t mind waiting, because for all I know. The person that’s in with the Doctor, is getting some really BAD news. Bad news, that I am sure at some point in our lives, we will all have to wait for. Or they’re running late because earlier in the day they had to give bad news.

What Is In Your Fridge Right Now?  (you’re not required to give a comprehensive list)

Food and Drinks…Hahahaha!lol….There is definitely left overs. A little chocolate, because when we put the heater on, it melts the chocolate. Definitely cider and coke…like coca cola…not coke coke,lol…There are lot of cans of sprite and 7up (lemonade). I usually like drinking them in the Summer, not Winter so much. So they tend to collect during Winter.

If You Could Only Speak One Word Today, What Would It Be?

Kindness.

Would You Rather Be Trapped In An Elevator Full Of Men With BO Or Three Soaked Dogs?  (this is with the codicil that C-19 doesn’t exist)

THE DOGGIES! ALWAYS THE DOGGIES!

Questions:

In your opinion, what’s the closest thing to real magic?

Nature. Just Nature itself. The birds, the bees…the planet. Am I completely lame?lol…Watching the clouds go by, keeping an eye on them, seeing if they’re “normal” clouds or “rain” clouds. Watching a bee push it’s way into flower. Watching a bee go after the only plant in the whole backyard, a weed. So now I’ve gone out and bought plants. Watching the birds swoop my cat,lol. Telling him to stay away, and rightly so! Watching a humpback whale come out of the sea. Nature is magic =D

(There’s tad and bits of whale, but start watching at 1:57).

Where is the worst smelling place you’ve been?

I haven’t actually been there, more like we’d drive past it. My cousins used to live near a mushroom farm! You didn’t even have to go in to the place to smell it, just needed to be the right temperature and the right wind…Smelly!

What are some things that you’ve heard in your own life, which sounded like compliments but were actually insults?

Oh, my brother is really good at this. I am not so good at it, or cannot always tell when it’s happening too me.

What incredibly common thing have you never done?

I don’t know,lol…I am incredibly common…haha

Hate Crime Charges – Black Lives Matter mural painted over

GOOD!

What this couple did was, get so upset by seeing the letters BLM on a road. They decided to take it upon themselves, to paint out these letters. What is HILARIOUS about this situation though, I was arguing with someone by the name of Brandon Straka Founder of “Walk Away”. The reasoning for his “side”? Us Liberals got all upset over a noose, that wasn’t a noose in the end. We were the snowflakes for getting upset about something, at the time, which looked like a noose (Bubba Wallace). Yet, the post we were on, was about two white people getting so offended by letters. That they took it upon themselves, to get paint and paint over said letters in the middle of a road. Not the noose situation. According to Brandon Straka, what these two “people” did was compassionate and morals, something someone like Liberals would never understand.

It was funny as well, because I was thinking to myself. If they didn’t get permission to do that, which I really doubted at the time they had. They were going to get into trouble…And they did! I didn’t expect the hate crime, but I did expect the vandalism.

Brandon is not a nice person. There was a Trump supporter, who was surprised that Brandon was commending it, as Brandon, is also the first to point out about the statues. The TS said “If we are having a go and telling people off for vandalising, then we need to hold ourselves to the same standards” Brandon called him “mentally ill”. All these other TS’s came to Jeff’s defence, because Jeff is actually right. Brandon didn’t “read Jeff” right. As I pointed out though, Brandon read what Jeff wrote, perfectly fine. In case they hadn’t noticed, anyone who doesn’t agree with Brandon Starka is just automatically “mentally ill”. Like I said to Jeff “Welcome to the Red Pill…Have Fun!”.

Questions:

What do you think of professional motivational speakers?  Do you think they motivate?

I think a really good one can. I’ve seen some in person and I’ve watched a couple of videos online. I think in order to be really good though, you need to be able to read your audience well. The biggest problem that I find is that after a while, the motivation tends to dissipate. So if you don’t motivate yourself in that time, you will lose it.

 Do you have a favorite flavor?

Mint or Peppermint…Not always spearmint though…Weird, huh?lol

While out walking, you hear a rustling in some bushes.  What do you think of?

My mind either goes blank or I start thinking “God, I hope that’s a possum or one of the local cats”lol…It always is,lol…Or it’s a bird of some kind.

What’s your ideal temperature (nature-wise)?   Hot, cold, temperate and mild, humid or bone dry?

Either Springish type or Summer going onto Autumn weather. So warm, but not stupidly hot,lol. So a little warmer than temperate.

Questions:

How comfortable are you speaking in front of large groups of people?

Considering that I’m an introvert,you’d think that I would be terrified! However, if I know why I’m talking to a group, then I am normally fine. It’s the chat chit afterwards I normally struggle with afterwards.

What would be the best thing you could reasonably expect to find in a cave?

Something really usual and unique. Or food, if I’m lost,lol.

What did you think was going to be amazing but turned out to be horrible?

I thought that working in a Library would be brilliant, but I have just had so many bad experiences. Most of the workers are nice, but it always management that’s problem. I think that the workers aren’t management, for that reason. Workers actually get it, management never do. Even in a Library!

The first time I worked in a Library, they knew I didn’t have a licence. But I still got all the really bad shifts, every single Sunday. When buses took forever to come by. I’d have to leave at 11am, to make sure I’d get there by 1. Ones that went for only three hours, finishing really late at night, in the middle of winter. Then, I worked one weekend about 4 months later with another casual who started with me. She had not worked any weekends, or any of the late shifts. So I started saying no, because I had assumed all the others were saying no, they weren’t even being asked. Then I got a sick, and even though I kept them up to date with my progress, I lost my contract…But no one actually told me that. So when my Doctor said that I was ready to go back to work, I told them…For the next month and a half, nothing. I heard nothing. One of the reasons, I didn’t panic was because it was Christmas time, so I thought that one)all the shifts will be full. Two)It’s Christmas, whose going to give up money unless it’s really important. Third) Surely if I had lost my contract someone would tell me. When FINALLY someone got back to me…They blamed me -.- They had tried my phone apparently, but I must have been really busy. Considering that 95% of our conversations took place over email. I call bull. I didn’t even thank anyone for giving me the experience.

So yeah, that was my first library job. Not the greatest of starts.

Actually I have never been treated well with Libraries, only as a customer. Even when I volunteered, I left there pretty angry as well.

What’s the silliest thing you’ve observed someone get upset about?

I don’t get the whole flying the Confederate flags as patriotic. Then getting upset when people want to get rid of the Confederate flags. They are literal losers, they lost the fight to have slaves. So why the upset about getting rid of statues and flags of literal horrible people.

I just wanted to point this out, because I keep forgetting to mention it. I will/have started to write the date as dd/mm/yyyy…As that is part of my world. Being Australian, we put the day first, instead of the month.

Share Your World – 05/25/2020

Questions:

In your opinion, does patriotism require the belief that one’s country is the greatest on earth?

No. You’ll have moments where you think it is, but nothing and nobody is perfect forever. We all have our moments.

Why is patriotism considered by some to be the highest of virtues? What is so important about love of country? Shouldn’t we be more concerned about humankind, or the planet as a whole, rather than a single country?

I think it’s more of a “pride” thing. Some people feel like they choose to live where they live, so it must be perfect, like them. They wouldn’t be living there if it wasn’t perfect. I love Australia, but I think (and I think a lot of others can relate) our current Government. Has shown the very worst flaws in our Government systems, and our Country. There’s nothing wrong with having a flaw, the problem happens when you don’t want to acknowledge it. It’s like having a cancer, all that happens if you don’t acknowledge it…well, you die.

What is the relationship between decisions and consequences?

They are related by, whatever decision you decide to take, will have some kind of action. it might be good, it might have consequences. But it all starts with that first decision.

What is social justice?

Social Justice is usually used by your every day human being. It’s kind of like taking the Law into your own hands. Most of the time, people don’t break the Law. When I think of social justice, I think of people like Martin Luther King Jr, Gandhi, Mother Teresa. People who protest peacefully, people who make the point with no violence. People who want to make a difference for others, like Greta Thunberg.

and one ‘easy’ one because those others?  Fairly difficult.

What’s one body part you wouldn’t mind losing? (told you.  Silly).

Either one arm or one leg. I think that I could get by still if I lost one of them. Okay, maybe a leg, I still want to be able to open jars, open my own packet of chips/crisps.

What is something that made you smile during the past week?

I started watching John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight”, last week. Anyways, he was talking about sports, and those missing them, those who are already over it. You have to watch the segment. All I’ll say though “Jelle’s Marble Run League”.

Questions:

What’s something you really resent paying for?

Umm…I honestly can’t think of anything. The closest I have come too is buying clothes online which then don’t really fit you properly.

 What was the most unsettling film you’ve seen?

I can’t think of one of the top of my head. The one that I can think of that comes closest. Was Hostels 2, a thriller. This group of young people get kidnapped and then they are bid for. Where they were then tortured. I don;t like horrors or thrillers, except for silent horror films. But they STILL give me nightmares. The silent film of “Phantom of the Opera”, gave me my first nightmare that I can remember. I was only there, because my partners friends all wanted to see it. They all had seen Hostel 1. I also got squeamish because, at one point, they shoot a kid in the head. Violence towards children and animals, always makes me angry.

Do you judge people?  

Too an extent, I do. I think we all do. As one gets older though, you learn to do it less and less.Well, I have been anyway,lol. I think as you get older, you…well some…care less what others think. So you tend to judge less, because you’ve “been through it” yourself. Well, some of us. I’d be a liar though if I say I never judge. I never said I was perfect!lol

Finish this sentence:  “Back in my day, we…”?

Walked 100 miles, in the snow, no shoes, we had to hunt for our school lunch…Hahaha…Back in my day…Feels so long ago now, especially with this year!

I have found something to put in my little seeds in, which I am going to go out to get tomorrow…The best thing is, that they are biscuit containers! Our supermarket bakery, bake their own biscuits (cookies). I’m always buying a different flavour biscuit, and the containers are quiet huge. I was about to throw them out, but then I realised. I reckon I can use them for some seeds! What do you all think? I was thinking some herbs? Put some holes in the bottom? I’m not really a “garden” person,lol. The most I do is pull weeds,lol. I put a birthday card of mine to compare sizes.
