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.

That I got ask back to work!!! Woohoo!!!

What would be your ideal fantasy way to spend Monday?

  • Slow cook…Oh my goodness, I’ve just been introduced to slow cooking…I am in love! You can smell the yummy food all day, it’s fantastic!.
  • Some serious cleaning out.
  • Take my dog for a walk.
  • If I’m at my partners house, I love cleaning up while he’s at work.

What one person that you are out of contact with would you like to say thank you to?

I can’t really think of one person, generally (even ex’s) I will thank for anything good or positive they brought to my life…Who knows when I’d see them again! There’s only one because I cannot remember if I thanked him or not. In year 6 (so about 10-11 years of age) I was bullied pretty much by all my classmates (my friends were in another class and I was not allowed to swap for some reason). There was one classmate who actually made me laugh, but of course if I tried to be friends with him, “I must love him”. I don’t think he realised how much he got me through.

List your favorite toys or games as a kid?

  • Hide and Seek – I was the BEST at this! I played with my cousins and brother and I was the lightest so I could hide up in the highest tree and hide in the tiniest spaces.
  • I loved my Barbies! They had a whole story going on there. There was one who could only eat junk food or she’d die! There was another who was psychic and she was also the group back manager. All my non-barbies “dolls” were the Barbies parents (I remember having an Strawberry Cupcake Doll) . Good times! Some of the outfits and Barbies that I got have come back in Fashion. I recently rebought a Rock and Roll 1980’s Barbie (link to pinterest…I also had the peaches and cream dress).
  • We all had a lot of little cars and trucks. We made car families and we were so original. We had the “Truck Family”, who only had trucks, the “police car” family. There was the Mayor’s family, who were all the fancy cars. We had a group of “teenagers” that were what you called nearly on the scrap heat and they were all fosters. Of course the Mayor’s daughter was in love with one of them!
  • I also was given my cousins cabbage patch doll, but at the same time I was given a “Magic Nursery Doll” – (goes to a YouTube video). I still have those two! They’ve been put away though for my future children.
  • I had a puppy surprise and my brother had a Footrot Flats dog and one of the “surprise” puppies was black and white.
  • Since I was a Ballerina when I was little, I also had a “My pretty Ballerina – ebay link” Who’d hang out with my magic nursery and cabbage patch doll.
  • My top 3 favourite though was my life-sized doll, who we called Brittany. She was my “sister”. She was in all the family photos. Then my brother turned her into a goth and made her a little black dress and we still have her too. I have to take a picture of her.

I am having such a good time remembering these =D Thank you so much!

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

In all honesty the question above has really been making me smile and now I’m looking for the other toys from my childhood. Thank you!

Toy and games that will make 90’s girls (and some boys!) super nostalgic

 

Ideal Realist

Is what I call myself, this is a part of who I am…Too me it means I get the realistic side of a situation, but the dreamer in me still wants everything to work out and work out well for everyone involved.

…One of these times of being who I am came into fruition over the past week, regarding, you may have heard about April the Giraffe giving birth and the attention it received when the live feed was suddenly taken down because of people reporting as “sexual” >.< My first thought was honestly “What kind of weirdo finds this sexual AT ALL?” However, along the lines I heard that animal activists wanted the video down in protest of April being in a “Zoo”.

Now the reason I bring up myself being an Ideal Realist. Yes, it would be fantastic to have all these animals running wild and free. It’s just not possible, right now, they’d get shot on site. Some of these Zoo’s are doing some fantastic work when it comes to conservation. For young people and children, this is where their love for these animals first come to life. It gets the children interested, it makes them want to know more.

I am all for shutting down bad Zoos and ones that are just terrible. However, some Zoo’s are doing terrific work.

Fighting Extinction – Zoos Victoria

Australia Zoo – Conservation 

I do actually believe that we will be able to see these animals a bit more free as years go by. As I feel we have a lot more people fighting for them. However, trying to get a video taken for reasons you don’t even mean, just makes the cause look laughable -.- If you want a video taken down, say why you REALLY want it taken down, not some fake one. I swear, not many people even knew about this Giraffe until the video was taken down and people started to find out “Why”. I admire people who want to see these animals free and really wild, like a lot of us do…But it was just going about it the wrong way.

If you really want to help, actually get out there and do something. Not just report a video for being sexual, that isn’t at all. Get out there and do some conservation work, actually volunteer at these Zoo’s so you can see for yourself what they do and THEN make a judgement. A lot of people I’ve seen who complain about Zoo’s actually haven’t been in the Zoo, so how can you know what they’re really doing?

I get worried when people do things like this, they are taking it away from the cause. Making it look like a joke, rather than getting people to look at the cause for what it is.

You can say that I’m a dreamer

So I recently read a really great blog post and a great read by The Zombie ShuffleAre you a Dreamer or a Realist? (go and have a read, great blog posts!)

I thought that it was a really interesting topic because it’s something that I’ve felt like I’ve struggled with a lot during my life. It started to make me think about some changes in my life and how I’ve come through them. I live a lot of my life “behind the veil”, in a way I day dream a lot. Many times while I’ve been day dreaming, I must look so unhappy because everyone tells me to “keep smiling”lol.

It’s an interesting topic because a lot of people assume that because I day dream I must be a “dreamer” or sorts. So I live in a world that’s full of puppies and baby bunny rabbits. This isn’t the case though. Last night for example, I pointed out to someone that saying “I’m not judging…” and then proceeding to judge someone doesn’t make it less of a judgement. Then they swore at me and told me to “shut the $%^%^% up” because I don’t know them. Which was ironic since they made a judgement on a celebrity that they don’t know either. It was one of those situations where you realised that they are in the little bubble and how dare someone disagree with them.

I believe that you can dream, dreaming gives me a safety net when the world gets a little rough and too hard. This might be by watching a movie or tv show where I can completely immersed into, listening to music and having a shower, writing.

Yet at the same time I am extremely aware of my responsibility as a human being on this planet.

I even did a test through Facebook Who is your Greek God parent? Where I got the God Apollo and this was his description“Your father is the god of the sun! You never cease to bring brightness to a dark world. You are wise and enjoy music. Be proud of your joy, but remember to recognize a grave situation when you see one.”

It’s tough being a “Idealist Realist”. You see all the wonder of the world, but feel the sadness of the reality of the world and you just cannot ignore it. It’s a little like having Ying and Yang scenario.
