My mum and I were just talking about how we hosted a Halloween Party two years ago. We definitely didn’t last year (haha) so it was the year before.
We were making fun of ourselves, because we had a wall of pictures of people who were real scary people and not as scary, so like Casper the Friendly. We run a test to see if they knew who was who. We thought that they were really easy to get. Everyone got the cartoon/animated type characters. But apart from Ted Bundy, they didn’t get the rest.
My mum and I had a “serious” talk with ourselves. Are we too addicted to crime, serial killers?
… Nah, it’s everyone else.
Do you have any weird interests or hobbies?
Share Your Thankful World, Nov 19, 2018
Are you an Early to bed, early to rise person, a night owl and day sleeper/dozer, or an ‘I’ll sleep when I’m dead’ person?
I am definitely not an early to rise person. I was more an night owl for years and then I got sick and I get tired so early these days. Since I’ve started slowly coming off the tablets though, I have been feeling more awake again. Not this week though, I’m pmsing,lol…I do normally get a bit more emotional, but not angry and I get tired.
What are some misconceptions about your hobby, should you have a hobby?
I guess my Hobby is playing computer games and colouring in. I sometimes write…I don’t know what my Hobbies are!lol…I just do them, if that makes sense?
A penguin walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?
Aliens have landed…do they come in peace?
Yes…but they think we are completely odd,lol
What are you really, incredibly thankful for this week?
We don’t “celebrate” Thanksgiving here, in Australia. However, we’ve been getting a lot of the Black Fridays ‘benefits’. ie, we’ve been getting online black Friday sales all week, great for Christmas shopping!
I am sure by now that everybody has heard of the Jacksonville Mass Shooting and why the shooter…shoot…
I love gaming, it has helped me so much when it comes to my anxiety and trying not to think about it. It helps me get lost for hours and hours till I have forgotten why I was anxious in the first place.
So, what is going on?
When it became apparent why the shooter was upset. The first reaction to a lot of (mainly white men) were them getting triggered SO easily, like it’s not normal to get upset by comments that SHOULDN’T be about them. Mass Shooters are mainly men! There’s clearly an issue there. Women are gamer’s and suffer from mental health. Yet we’re not mass shooting people. It’s time men start asking their friends what the heck is going on. We cant solve it for them, because we are not men and we don’t know why they’re doing this. I know emotions are scary, but they gotta do it.
It’s like the whole #notallmen…We know it’s not all men. However, there are clearly issues there. Just like I am able to sit there and say although I suffer from mental health. I don’t get upset when someone tries accuse me of being a horrible being, because I know I am not like that. HOWEVER, even if the people who have hated on me this year wanted my help, I would help, because their issues are not about me.
I hate to bring this up again…When my now ex friend accused me of all this stuff, I was shocked, not angry, because I KNOW that is not me. I had no reason to be angry, because everything she accused me of, I had not done and it was not me. It was all her.
Which means I don’t really understand why these guys are concentrating on being accused of something, that they are not being accused of. Rather than going “There’s a problem here”. Getting upset by something that isn’t about you, is not good either. My brother is really witty and very funny, and he makes fun of people all the time, myself especially,lol. Yet, what he says doesn’t make me upset. A lot of the time, it’s true!
What better way to start a Monday then to tell you about some hobbies that I do. That I can’t actually believe that I have never told you all about!
Now I know the title says Astrology. I am not an actual Astrologer so I can’t not tell you your future/horoscope. However, I am a big follower of it. Now also when I say a big follower of it, I don’t really pay attention to the day to to day. When I was younger my Gran made a chart with different houses and those sorts of ones I pay attention too. Mainly because they’ve been extremely accurate.
My Gran also taught me Reiki and I am a Level Reiki Practitioner (and my bear Tristan). For those who do not what Reiki is, I’ll give you a little quick break down: Reiki is the ancient Chinese healing method with your hands. The great thing about Reiki is that you can do what is called “Absent Healings”. Which is where you give a picture or have a picture in your mind of the person your healing and you use a proxy (hence the teddy bear). I don’t use Reiki so much on other people anymore, but I do on myself at lot at the moment. It really does help. I must stress that it will not necessarily cure anything, but it helps with the stress of the situation. I once was regularly giving Reiki healing for someone who had terminal cancer. Although it did not cure the cancer, she said that it helped her with the pain.
If you ever feel like you need an absent reiki healing, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
My Grandmother also taught me the ways of the Tarot and I do love using my cards. I currently have a Lord of the Rings deck and I’ve had them for years! I love just using them to help clarify any questions or situations that I find myself currently in. Unfortunately though I don’t know why, but I can’t find my deck!
I love Hobbies…I am all about the Hobbies…
I feel like everyone needs a Hobby, or some kind of outlet. I am grateful to all the Hobbies in the whole world because I feel like they are such a good distractions and just give our minds a break from the rat race of the world.
Some of my Hobbies are (in no particular favourite order):
- Playing Games
- Baking…I consider baking to be more like cupcakes/cakes/muffins/biscuits…Food you don’t “need” to make, rather more that they are fun.
- I don’t know if you’d call watching “Safari Live” a “hobby” but I enjoy it, it’s like watching your favourite “YouTuber” I guess? Is that even an Hobby?lol
I am grateful for all the Hobbies and they have been great distractions for myself personally. When I first developed my odd anxiety symptoms, doing all the Hobbies above distracted me and with those distractions slowly I’ve gotten better. I have often thought lately about making my Hobbies my work…But I don’t know if I’m brave enough or would even know where to start!
I just wanted to say that I hope you’ve been enjoying these “Getting to know me Blogs” as much as I’ve been enjoying writing them! Here we go with the last week…
- Regularly burn incense?
I have actually been getting more into burning incense and the like. Since I developed an anxiety condition last year, just meditation and calming my mind has been helping and I’ve been really improving. Maybe “getting more into burning…” Isn’t the greatest description in the world.
- Who would you like to see in concert?
I would love to see Bruno Mars, but he’s very unlikely to come to my little town.
- Hot tea or cold tea?
Hot tea, I’m not even honestly sure that I’ve had even had cold tea. Apart from iced tea…with whip cream!
- Tea or coffee?
Oh lordy…How can one choose?! I drink both, however, in some situations I will only drink one during certain times. For example, when I’m sick or have the flu, I will only drink tea as when I’m sick, I can’t stand coffee. I don’t even drink coffee to try and stay awake, I drink coffee as treat almost.
- Sugar cookies or snickerdoodles?
I have no idea what a snickerdoodle is, so I’d have to go with sugar cookies.
- Can you swim well?
I can alright, but I’m not ready for the English channel or anything like that.
- Can you hold your breath without holding your nose?
*tries* Yes, I can! It looks less stupid than when holding it. (Ditto,lol)
- Are you patient?
It’s actually one of the things people know the most about me, how patient I can be, when most others would lose it. It’s a trick between not taking things personally and not actually caring. Especially when it comes to work and I know it’s nothing that I’ve stuffed up.
- DJ or band at a wedding?
I’d prefer a DJ just because then you can make requests for the original song, rather than someone trying to cover a song. However, I think having a band would look really classy. I’ve been to a funeral where a duo decided to dedicate a song that the deceased really like, and they sounded terrible. I felt it was so disrespectful, the person didn’t like the song because YOU sung it, they liked because the person they liked, sang it. I don’t know, it’s always felt really wrong to me.
- Ever won a contest?
No, I’ve had some luck though with my works lottery group. We sometimes win 30-40 bucks here and there…Enough for another ticket.
- Ever had plastic surgery?
No, I’m pretty okay with my body. The only thing I wish I could change is that my teeth would be a little whiter. Not stupidly blinding white, but just a little whiter. It’d also look really cool because the two herbivore teeth that are usually next to the two big ones, mine are missing, they just never grew threw. So my teeth look like vampire teeth, and I love it.
- Which are better, black or green olives?
I don’t really love Olives, I’d rather not have them…If I had to choose I’d go with the green ones.
- Can you knit or crochet?
I can’t really do either, I haven’t crochet in a while, so I’d probably have to restart and relearn.
- Best place for a fireplace?
If I could have a dream place for a fireplace, I would have it in a library type room, probably off from the main living area. In a medium sized room, so the air doesn’t get all smokey.
- Do you want to get married?
Only to the right person.
- If married, how long have you been married?
- Who was your HS crush?
Oh I had a lot…I didn’t date any of them, I was way to shy to actually ask. I had a lot though.
- Do you cry and throw a fit until you get your own way?
Umm…No, I’m not even sure I did that as a kid. Apparently I used to only throw fits when I was constrained, like when I was put into a seat belt. I hated to be constrained, still do.
- Do you have kids?
I am furbaby Aunty and step mama. My brothers dog is technically his, since he’s the whole reason he got her. Only a couple of months after we got her though, he moved to Melbourne and left her with us. My partners cat is actually his ex’s cat, but when they split up, she said to hold onto him for a year and if she didn’t come back, my partner could keep him. She wanted to travel, and his had the cat for about 3 or 4 years now.
- Do you want kids?
No right now, there’s still a lot to get settled first. I would prefer to be married first as well.
- What’s your favorite color?
The toughest question. I love Yves Saint Laurent’s Babouche yellow. Yes, I chose a nail polish color, they are ever so precise.
- Do you miss anyone right now?
Wherever I am, I always miss my mum and my dog, or if I’m with them, I miss my partner and his cat. Don’t tell anyone I said this, but if I could, I would actually live with all of them, my mum, my partner and the cat and the dog. I’d be very happy.Even though Pippy and Travie would probably kill each other. As long as it was a big enough house to give us all enough space.
- Who is your favorite author?
At the moment my favourite author is Jodi Picoult. I think I have literally every single one of her books and I would highly recommend them. Especially if you are a person that likes to look at how other people think.
- If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I actually really like the city where I live, home is where the heart is. As mentioned above though, I would just love a really huge house. Where I could live with whoever, but also enough room for visitors. Maybe somewhere near a beach. Should be easy…right?
