You know, considering how offended Trump supporters get by people who are able to speak more than one language. You would think they could get at least English right,lol. You know, as a common curtsy. If you’re getting all offended by someone speaking another language, get your own correct first!lol
You know for a country that was founded on immigrants, slaves and slaughter. Who did not all speak English, did they? America now, even changed the English language so they do not write like the English. Why are people being able to speak more than 2 languages the destruction of the US? When that’s how it was founded?
Is there one post on your site that is really special to you? (credit for this one goes to CrushedCaramel )
I like any post of mine that had got people talking to each other. I like bringing people together. I can’t think of a specific post I’ve written. Any that has gotten people talking.
How Do You Deal With Negative People? (Athling2001 gets credit for this one)
It depends on the person and the situation honestly. Negative people at work and people in my private life, I handle differently.
What Is The First Thing You Think Of When You Wake In The Morning?
At the moment it’s usually about whether or not I got to sleep well the night before. Since I’ve started weening myself off my anxiety tablets, I can feel it happening. A couple of nights ago I had a really bad night, but it’s been the only bad night. It’s all about learning, new ways to cope.
Honestly the first few night I had amazing, crazy dreams…I wish I was still having those!
Would You Rather Be Able To Talk With The Animals Or Speak All Foreign Languages?
Without question, talk with the animals.
This month the gratitude question will address your life and what things you’ve received or done, that have brought you joy and sometimes relief perhaps.
What small thing happened today (or in the past few days) that you were grateful for?
Honestly, just for the totally sane people in my life. I see all these things happening in America and, even here in Australia. I just think…This is nuts! Then I talk to my Mum or my partner, or my colleagues at work and it feels “normal” again.
How many languages do you you speak?
I only speak the one language, unfortunately. I can say bits and pieces of German, but they are very small bits and pieces. I can count to 10, say good morning and good night, mother and father and that is it really. I would love to be able to speak another language, but I struggle with English as it is,lol.
What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?
- Reading: Hindsight by Melaine Casey. I’m actually reading 3 different books right now,lol
- Watching: I’m not really watching a series or anything right now, I have a lot of stuff taped though that I’m getting through.
- Listening: I’ve been listening too a lot of Fantasy and Celtic type music. I’ve been getting back into meditating, crafty things and I find this kind of music helps me to keep creative.
- Eating: I’ve been trying to eat a lot more healthy at the moment, I’m hoping it’ll help with my anxiety issues. I think it actually is making a difference, I am noticing the differences, because I am now aware of the differences.
What was the last photo you took with your phone?
What is your favorite time of day?
This can depend on the day as well honestly, if I’m not working I enjoy the actual day, especially when I’m doing chores around the house, or I’m doing things that make me feel like I’ve done something with my day off. On the day that I’m working or get called in (because I’m a causal) my favourite time would be between that time when you first get home and that time when you’re start getting dinner ready.
How many languages do you you speak?
I only speak English, but I do know random words in other languages. I can count up to 10 in German and I know a couple of random/general sayings, like Guten Tag (Good Morning) things like that.
What are some words that just make you smile?
I decided to go with whatever words popped into my head…Pippy, Travie, Warm, Mvula, Here comes the sun, Fun, Lasagne, Cubs, Justice.
If you were the original architect of one existing building, which building would you select?
I would want to be the original architect of the Parthenon, I just love that building. I love the ruins of it, where it’s placed, what it represents, who it’s supposed to represent and the view must be absolutely stunning. It is such a strong building, even with it being in “ruins”, it still stands so strongly after a long time.
Would you rather have telepathy or telekinesis? (Telepathy is the communication using your brain waves, telekinesis is channeling the energy onto physical objects to cause substantial, observable physical changes.)
I think that I would rather have Telekinesis, the thought of being able to read or communicate with people through their minds seems like such a big invasion of ones privacy.

In your native language which letter or character describes you best? Why?
I wish that I spoke another language, I’ve always wanted to speak Spanish or Elvish (lol), unfortunately though I only speak English =/
What is your greatest extravagance?
I know what I would like to be extravagant about. In fact just the past weekend I went to a convention and this convention was one of those “nerdy/geeky” type of conventions. They had a couple of stores there that had some gorgeous figurines and I told my partner “I wish I had enough money so I could have a house with a room for just “stuff” lol
Do you prefer exercising your mind or your body? How frequently do you do either?
It actually depends, I’ve been really badly injured in my leg over the last couple of weeks. Which has meant a lot of sitting around and a lot of thinking. I’ve been trying to get into my exercising my body a lot more, but I’ve kind of hit a snag obviously,lol. I’ve always felt though you have to exercise both as you see fit, you need to listen to your body and mind and see what they need.
List at least 5 things that makes you laugh.
