Cravings

I really do love it when a random thought hits my brain sometimes it’s kind of like:

 Brain, Simpson

Any-ways, I was reading a few reviews on some really big movies over the weekend and I saw the same “complaint” about how, even though these movies have been proving really successful…”Hollywood can’t come up with original”.

Then seeing this over and over, and although I agree, and realising that I don’t even mind because I enjoy these movies so much. I started to think to myself, most of the movies coming out are either:

a) reminiscent of my childhood,
b) are “simple” and by that I mean, they have big bangs and bad guys vs good guys.

Then it occurred to me, maybe that’s it? Maybe that’s why these “unoriginal” movies are doing so well? Maybe we’re all craving more simplicity in our lives? A reminder of when time was more simple? I don’t know about you all, but I’ve never noticed a really annoying trend, where everything is bad these days, and on the great big grand scale of things they are really not bad things. When you think about these “bad things” you think to yourself, if that’s the biggest complaint in your life, you have it pretty darn good.

Share Your World … Week 52

Share Your World

http://ceenphotography.com/2015/12/28/share-your-world-2015-week-52/

Wow! So the last of “Share Your World” … What a ride! Who knows what I’ll be doing next year! SO let’s finish this one with a BANG! =D

Tell how you are feeling today in the form of a weather report. (For example, partly cloudy, sunny with a chance for showers, etc.) 

I actually writing this on the Tuesday 29th, but it wont be posted until Thursday the 31st (Happy New Year). However, the whole week is supposed to be really the same (somewhere around mid 30 Celsius … High 80 – early 90 Fahrenheit). So it should actually be nicely warm all this week.

What is most memorable about your high school years?

I would have to say that it was the final year of High School for me (and not because it was the last year either). I wasn’t “popular”, but I wasn’t “geeky” either. My little group could pretty much sit where ever we wanted because were kind of cool with everyone. Down Under our Wendys (Australia) sells Hot Dogs and not burgers and every Friday lunch time my girlfriends and I would always get a “Cheesy Dog” (pretty much a Hot Dog with cheese, instead of just sauce). Every now and then I still get them,lol.

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewerly?

Knowing me, I probably did, but I can’t honestly remember if I did or not.

Complete this sentence:  I like watching…

Ustream Djuma (live stream) in the morning, I usually have that on in the morning, it’s extremely soothing and very meditative, just some sounds of very early African sounds. Also, whenever I can, I like to watch Ustream Wild Earth Safari’s, they are only twice a day for three hours each, but it’s amazing!

Throwback Monday

Scrolling through my Facebook posts and I stumbled across this on one of my favourite sites “Book Riot” (Check them out, they have fantastic posts!)

Any ways I came across this post Say Hello to your Friends, Babysitters Club! … Oh my goodness! The childhood and teenage years memories came flooding back and a huge grin came across my face. I can’t even remember what I did with the books, at some point I got rid of them, but reading this article made me wish I still had them!

So the creator Ann M. Martin (Wikipedia page) created this book series which became so wildly popular there was a board game, movie and a TV series. It’s based around a Babysitting Club and the story is mainly focused on 7 girls:

Stacey McGill

Mary Anne Spier

10 Years

So this week I will be renewing my passport, I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since I applied for it! Amazing! =D I’ve been looking at a lot of American things this week and I am so tempted to have a Halloween party, my favourite American holiday =D (I do like the pies though that they make for Thanksgiving =D) It was so long ago there is no “time hop” because Facebook wasn’t even around then…It was Myspace all the way! =D

I will be back one day!

What was happening though ten years ago during August of 2005.

  • A little highly anticipated-to-fail film came out called “Batman Begins” starring Christian Bale.
  • “TomKat” was a ‘new’ thing…Who could ever forget that couch hopping!
  • Star Wars, Episode III came out enraging the whole of the entire planet!
  • Carrie Underwood had won American Idol
  • Kardashians was an unknown name.

 

Childhood memories

I really struggled today with what I was going to write for today’s session of “Magical Monday” Mainly because I got food poisoning and then my partner got the flu. So I’ve been really trying to think of different posts to write about, its’s been a struggle I can tell you.

However, while I’ve been sick I received two DVD’s of “movies” that I used to watch obsessively as a child and have been watching them while I’ve been sick. One was the “ice-skating spectacular” with ice skating superstars Dean and Torvill  called “Fire and Ice”. I also purchased the Royal Ballet production of “Beatrix Potter”.

I used ot watch these two obsessively whenever I was at my Grandparents, as well as “The Red Shoes” (but I still have to purchase them).

So readers did you have any favourite movies or shows that you used to be obsessed with as a child? Maybe share something that you think no one has ever heard of before.

What we leave behind

(First of all if you are not 18+ please do not read any further than this sentence!)

As I was having a shower I had a random thought (as you always do in the shower). My left leg for the past year or so will give me sudden twinges of pain, and it will last for a couple of days after I get it. It happened after last year…I don’t know how many of you watch “Sex and the City” there was episode called “The Catch”. If you know that episode you will understand completely what I mean when I say that someone from my recent past of last year is a “Jack Rabbit”.

After I stopped “copulating” with this person, within a week I had my issues regarding my leg. The other problem was my immune system was down and I had developed a cold, and when I gave my first cough…My lordy! The pain that shoot through my leg, my dog run away from me because I swore so loudly,lol.

The thought that I had while I was in the shower was actually about my best friend who has recently broken up with someone, and although she knew that I did not particularly like him (for good reason) I have gone either “I told you so” However she keeps doing, as sometimes happens, meeting up with him and I have this deep dark feeling that they will eventually get back together. As I was in the shower I had this thought “If only there was some sort of physical reaction we have that gives us pain, to remind us…”This person will cause you pain“…Of course, just as I was thinking I had my own pain shot through my leg.

Instead of crying out in pain or annoyance though, like I normally would have, I had a little grin to myself. I have my own little reminder of the person that gave me that pain. In that moment, I just had a slight happy satisifcation to myself. That pain will ALWAYS remind me…

For those who do not know what a “Jack Rabbit” is…Here’s a clue…(Don’t watch video unless you are 18 years of age and over).

I didn’t expect this…

I’ve only been on the online dating site for a couple of days and I already have two guys that I’m interested in and they seem interested in me too…

In the moments though when I am not talking to them and those silent few minutes before I asleep. I am suddenly reminded of the heartbreak that I have only recently endured and it comes all flooding back to me and then I am paralysed again by fear and I just want to go back to the beginning of the year and start all over again.

I don’t want to feel like this any-more, I want to be happy, I don’t want to be sad. It is easy to forgive, it’s hard to forget. I wish that there was someone who could just give me one big hug and tell me that it was all going to be okay and for once be able to believe it myself.

That Little Scar

The little scar on the bottom of my right foot,
A constant reminder on how I entered this world,
A scratch across my foot when I was not even a day old,
I suffocated on the way in too, a tiny little life already having to fight to be in this world.

That little scar on the bottom of my right foot,
A trusting little foot holding out to the doctor, with that big needle, much bigger than my little foot.
One little movement and that trust that I had in that doctor, all gone,
I am suppose to be there, I might have to fight the rest of my life, but here I am.

That little scar on the bottom of my right foot,
How can one deny that there not suppose to be,
I am supposed to be and I will fight to be here,
But why am I suppose to be here? Why and what for?

That little scar on the bottom of my right foot, a constant reminder that I AM supposed to be here.

What If?…

Once again going with my music video theme for this week…This is a song I repeatedly listen too and have for many years. I think that a lot of others can relate to this song and Kate Winslet doesn’t, surprisingly, sound too bad. I think though, if a lot of people knew who this songs relates too for myself, they would be very shocked…Because it is not any of my past boyfriends. Whenever I am having a rough time with a partner, or a potential partner I somehow always stumble over this song.
