Justice!

This year has really made me reflect on stuff…One of the “stuff” being “Why do I love crime shows SO much”. After reading about what Trump had been saying this particular day. I thought to myself “This is why I like crime shows”. I would say that at least 95% of the shows I’ve seen. Always has some kind of justice at the end of the show.

(I am clearly Hawkgirl in this situation)

And honestly, I think that is what keeps me going. Right now, we aren’t really seeing any justice. Trump seems to be getting away with his stuff, transphobes too…and there are STILL really bad police officers out there. It definitely feels like the bad guys are winning.

After watching all these crimes shows, it can take years for Justice, but they do get their comeuppance in the end…

Share Your World – 06/22/2020

Questions:

Have you ever ‘dined and dashed” (i.e. eaten the meal and then run out the restaurant door without paying)?

No, I had never done that. God knows, that I want to do that though!

Have you ever been in a car accident and either left the scene of the accident (providing it was a fender bender and not serious) or denied culpability for causing it when you did, (if it were minor or serious)?

As an adult, I haven’t been involved in a car accident, when I was a kid I was. It had been raining a lot this day and my mum just misjudged and we went spinning. We hit a tree, which we discovered later that the people had purposely planted that tree, because it seemed to happen a lot there. It was near a pond. I still remember what it felt like, the spinning.

(Oldie which has been asked many times before)   Have you ever found a wallet or purse or some money (over $20) in the street and just taken it, thinking ‘finders keepers, losers weepers?   Or would you be ‘good’ and hand it in?  

At the moment, I would never do that. Actually I have never done that. I’m such a square, but you know I couldn’t live with myself. What if that $20 was all that person had left over even for a week or two?. So I would hand it in.

What was the last thing you stole or shoplifted?   If you never ever considered doing that, tell us your secret!   🙂

I’m such a square, I never have,lol. I have considered it a lot, especially when I see something that’s really lovely, or a fun toy. But I don’t know why I stop myself. It might be because the things I would want to steal are really expensive. The things that I would want to steal are more like really fun toys, like your big Lego sets and those “Fur Real” toys. So I don’t think there’s a “secret” it’s just that I couldn’t get away with it,lol.


Gratitude.

Share Your World – 25/05/2020

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.

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”.

Please, remember them.

As much as I am a fan of a good conspiracy theory. I think we need to be careful with spreading them when it comes to Jeffrey Esptein and remember that people, children, that Esptein hurt… Are now grown ups…Possibly still children. They’ve lived with this for years and now justice is being slowly taken away from them. Just be careful in these times ❤

Alabama, Georgia…

What can I say, when I live all the way in Australia?

Thank you to Senator Bobby Singleton who yelled at the sneaky devils trying to get a motion through without the normal process. A law that would allow a woman to be locked up for 99+ years for abortions, even AFTER being raped in Alabama. So while the rapist gets, probably nothing. The woman would have the potential to be locked up for 99 years! *I started to write this when it hadn’t gone through yet*

In Georgia not only are they making it harder to get abortions, but you can be arrested and put in jail if you miscarry…They have to prove that the woman did it on purpose and we all know how fantastically fair the American justice system is…

“Karma”

I am sure by now we have all seen the many reports of alleged sexual predatory behaviour and too me it is so sad that this is just on so badly. It’s horrible!

I think what is making me the MOST angriest though is all the Trump supporters who almost seem to believe anybody who is a “leftiest” it suddenly almost makes them think that Trumps being voted in as a known sexual predator. Suddenly all these people who are being accused of being one it’s “karma” and it’s amusing, and also dissolves Trump of anything he’s done. Yet, when it’s “one of them” they are completely innocent of course.

It is NOT “karma” for criticising the fact that the President is a sexual predator…It is called people being sick and tired of seeing these people get away with being sexual predators and being voted into places of power by mindless sheep, like them.

 

Uncomfortable

*I just want to start this off by saying that these thoughts are literally my own thoughts, I do not recommend or wish to dissuade anyone*

I recently read an article (please press the link): “I call him my rapist”  . Breaking the article down it is about a woman (and yes men can be raped too) In this situation though, it’s about a man raping a woman. After years of no one doing anything about her case, and being told that her files from her visit to the hospital had been destroyed and then finding out that they HADN’T been destroyed! As well as the AVO she had out on the guy had “accidentally” been destroyed. Over a 16 year period the guy ended up doing the same to at least three other women (that they know about) BUT they decided to make the cases separate, so the jury would never hear how he did this too other people. He was acquitted.

The lady then decided it was about time someone did something and so she posted the guy’s address. Which then instigated a whole load of backlash and even threats of arrest, because we have to wait and let “Justice” take it’s course.

This is why I am so on the fence, it does make me feel uncomfortable for someone to post someone’s address, whether or not they did something. On the other hand, I can completely get where this women is coming from. The irony in threatening her with legal ramification is just also kind of laughable as well. When she did come out with his address as well other women then came forward, thinking they were the only ones who he had done this too. How can someone whose been raped, has the proof and yet has been the one being threatened to be charged with something?

How does it come too that?

Yet, still, people cannot figure out why people do not go the police.

Karma Part 2

Firstly I am going to repost my post about Karma here that I posted last week.

Karma

Please take a read of it and let me know what you think!

The reason for this post though is because I cannot stop laughing about something that happened the day AFTER I made this post and thought that I would share. So to break down my previous post. It’s all about how I see Karma and that it’s not just one big event that happens to someone that had wronged you, but something they have to live with every day. So don’t hang around waiting for something to happen.

The day after my original post, a big karma event happened to someone who had humiliated me publicly. I try to be a good person, but even I had to have a little evil snicker. Well more than a snicker, but I was talking to someone who had no idea what had gone on. They know I knew some people from this gaming area, but they have no idea how horrible they were. I was actually trying to support their business, and I actually enjoyed going and playing games there, so one of the co-workers, one of my ex’s best friends, added me to their Facebook business page. I swear the owner and one of my ex’s best friends, put in all capital letters (My ex and I have a lot of mutual friends in common, that’s how we met) “WHY HAVE YOU ADDED HER?” I felt so humiliated and I never went back. I found out later that he had told other people “I shouldn’t have done that”….He never said it too ME though. Ever since, his business has had problems. I found out that now his second business is probably going to be gone soon.

Not only that but someone very close to me has been harassed by a customer and this person has been naaasty! My friend said it’s the worse customer they have ever had! They just could not find her order. Well today they found this person has been ringing the wrong company (they still have not rang back to apologise either). Not only that though (it gets better from here!) The person blasting my friend, is working for a company that is given a special extra discount for exclusively working with my friends company. Which means that they can NOT get parts or anything from any other company. Which means this woman through her own stupidity has now gotten her company into trouble, because of her call proving they are working and getting orders from other companies.

So, sometimes Karma does work in one big way.

Happy Birthday to me…Get to know me!

Okay so I’ve just recently turned 30…Happy Birthday to me! So I thought that I would share 30 facts with you, my blog readers =D Hopefully some will be unexpected:

  1. In nearly every single situation I prefer the bad guy over the good one. Except possibly not when it comes to Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit. I think it may be possible that those movies are the first that I prefer the good guys…Except for Iron Man.
  2. My best, best, BEST friend and I have known each other for more than half our lives and apart from my family she is the only other person to be in my life that long.
  3. I am one of those very annoying people that actually does like a bit of everything, music-wise
  4. Over probably the last 5 years I’ve started to realise that I am nothing like most of my friends. I have completely ways of seeing the world and it has made me feel incredibly lonely, BUT, I am meeting people now and am starting to believe in myself again.
  5. I am Doctor Who obsessed and I’ve started to watch the original series. People think that I know everything from the William Hartnell years, but I actually don’t.
  6. Ironically when I started my course to train to become a Librarian, I stopped reading. It’s only been since I started to volunteer at my local Library that I restarted again.
  7. While most people seem to freak out about rats, I have actually three pet rats and think that they are adorable (I still want a hamster, but they are illegal in Australia).
  8. I do things like meditation, reiki…I never try and force it down people’s throats though.
  9. I love to dance! Although I have not joined a local dance class or something like that, I have a lot of the dancing games on my xBox and I play them a couple of times a week.
  10. I don’t just have an xBox…I have an Star Wars xBox with a C3PO gold controller!
  11. I love watching Vlog’s, especially those ones of Cosplaying and am currently trying to set up one for this Blog!
  12. I love the crime channel and for the longest time I could not figure out why. I think it’s because I love that in all of the programs, they find their person and justice is done.
  13. Speaking of Justice, a role model of mine is Athena the Goddess of Wisdom, law and justice. When I was in High School, my ancient classical studies class was the only class I use to get A’s.
  14. I suffer from dyslexia and due to large classrooms, this went unnoticed through 99% of my schooling,  until Year 12. Where my ancient classical studies teacher recognised and helped me. I know have exercises that help me cope. As annoying as it may be, I constantly I have to re-read everything.
  15. I am an animal lover, although not a vegetarian. When I was little my brother, cousins and I had a nature club and we took “care” of any animal that we could find. We found lizards, caterpillars, millipedes…Yes…everything!
  16. I have travelled overseas mainly to Arizona, I have also travelled to the UK.  Once I get a well paying job I will be saving to go back there for at least one last time, for a long time. I don’t think it will be my very last time, but it will be for a long time.
  17. I love both coffee and tea…I have been experimenting with different teas and coffees this year, it has been a good time!
  18. I am organising my 30th party while I am writing this…I get really stressed out organising parties.
  19. I am an Facebook ‘addict’ but one of my resolutions to stay off of Facebook once a week, has been helping and I find that I am getting stuff done!
  20. Over the last year I have been changing, getting rid of and acquiring new things, so that I can have a more “grown up” bedroom. I think I have more toys (statues, figurines) than I ever have before!
  21. Before I started my studies I was a call centre operator, but I never ever want to do it again!
  22. Out of all my thirty years I have found this past year I have learnt the most about myself and have noticed huge changes for myself.
  23. I am more happier being single than when I am in a relationships. I seem to have more fun!
  24. I am more of a dog person than a cat person, but I love kittens!
  25. Apart from this year I have been back-stabbed about two weeks before my birthday parties. You can imagine how happy I am that this year didn’t happen!
  26. I think this year is definitely the year that I have learnt “It’s more important to have a few true friends than a lot of fake acquaintances”.
  27. I cannot stand romantic comedy movies, the only one I have ever enjoyed was “Love Actually”. I enjoy actual comedies, musicals and LOVE action films!
  28. Although I am a huge Disney fan I am probably the most realist idealist you will ever meet. Probably why I am still single, I’ve noticed a lack of honesty, compassion and open-mindedness these days. Which are probably the three most important values in any relationship.
  29. I am girl who does not love chocolate! Give me a packet of chips any day, I have to be in the mood for chocolate…Shocking, I know!
  30. Although I have just spent this past year trying to remodel my room and make it more ‘adult’ I have just gotten a whole tonne of presents which I have no clue what to do with!
