We have the big election this weekend (can you imagine what the Murdoch media is like!)
Anti-LGBT is a lot of the Murdoch media around the world. By the way, just as an semi-curious question, is there anyone you’re waiting to die? Not related at all.
Elon Musk may or may not buy Twitter.
I would like to know, apart from turning off social media, apart from the turning off the news. How do you cope when the world is pretty much, well crap.
I, probably obviously, like to read. I will just sit and read.
Now I enjoy gardening. I’ve gotten a couple of disgruntled text messages, because I went to check on the garden, ended gardening for a couple of hours, lol. Do gardening without taking your phone outside.
I play my games, so my Sims, Planet Zoo and sometimes Age of Empires.
I have so many colouring in books, lol
I guess I like to create.
Creating things makes me feel useful, if only in my own little world. I think that’s the important bit. You have to make sure you feel useful, even if it’s only for yourself, or too protect yourself.
I’m also sort of stuck right now, I want to create a home for my partner and myself, but he’s s fussy! Like he’ll say he’s okay with me making the home more of a home, but then you know, he’s clearly not. Because it is his home. He bought it, I help out with shopping and bills, but it’s legally all his. Sometimes I have to sneak things in. Or plan a good time for a “reveal”. It puts a hamper on things, lol. He buys this beautiful house, that I don’t actually like. But then he wont let me do things, so I can make it more “homey” and a house I like, lol
I used to have baths, but the bath plug broke, lol
And of course, music. Mostly Enya when I literally need to “sail away” in my own mind, lol
I see a lot of bloggers talking about the coming of Spring. Spring is my favourite weather =D I can’t blame them, but here, down under, we’re heading into the darkness that is Winter!
I actually used to really enjoy Winter, but in the last few years. I do not enjoy the darkness that Winter brings, but this year I want to change my entire mindset to Winter! There are many things to enjoy about Winter, it’s all about the mind. I think what I dislike about Winter the most is the darkness, how when you leave for the day it’s dark, when you go home, it’s dark.
But there’s nothing stopping me from bringing the light inside. I don’t mean the lights in the house.
I mean like, what’s stopping me from wearing light colours? Like your yellows, pinks, rainbows =D It’s not “stylish”, but I’m not stylish, lol
Make a plan a couple of nights to sit on the couch, watching t.v., reading a book. All snuggled up with a blanket, and I have a lot of those!
A lot of planning meals. Sometimes the weather is way to horrible to go food shopping after work. So planning in advance, means that there is less chance of needing to go to the shops.
And now that I have my Grans fake log heater. I can just put the light on that, I don’t even need to put the heating part on. Hot chocolate. A lot of the time, by Easter, it’s cold and a little chilly. We have the bigger heater on. It sounds so cozy already.
Long baths…with a hot chocolate.
Writing by fake log fire…with a hot chocolate, haha
I don’t need a new year new me, I am doing really well =D Why mess with perfection, haha
It’s so nice to be free. This is going to be long, because it’s been a long year, haha
Well, if you hadn’t been paying attention this year. I have been “standing with” and for trans rights. I have few close female friends, because I know how horrible women can be. Especially white women! Like, when you think about it. Be honest, when a woman has bullied you, harassed you, lied about you, backstabbed, wants to be an wanna be mean girls…They’re always white. It’s just a fact of life. We white women need so to do SO much better! Someone really important said “Until we are all coffee coloured, there’ll be no peace”.
I want to give a big shout to the trans community. I have learnt SO much because of you. I have learnt when to speak, when to listen, like actually listen. When to keep my emotions together. How to help without the use of social media. You have helped keep my ego in check.
Do you all realise how wonderful Science is? Like turn off the tv and go research some Science! I swear once you start understand, you understand.
Here are some facts I learnt this and some that I already know, guess ~.^
Trans women can breast feed
The trans community HAVE existed since before Christianity. Just were given different names, obviously.
Human Beings are DEFINITELY more than their reproductive organs.
JKRowling is just a terrible human being.
Being cis or trans isn’t that complicated. You are one or the other, or you are non-binary. Here’s the best thing, you get to decide for yourself! Your body, your choice!
Being a bigot will cost you everything, being kind costs nothing. It just makes sense.
Pronouns are quiet simple
Being hard, doesn’t mean you’re not soft and unkind.
Everyone needs to find something that they can honestly believe in, that comes at no harm to others or yourself.
Everyone claiming to have been cancelled, have been more vocal than ever before. Unless you die, “being cancelled” is just fake news.
There are always people who support love more than hate. It voted Trump out! Now let love vote Morrison out, but you know through voting.
A virus doesn’t care about “my body my choice” It’s a virus. It does not care about your body or your choices.
Some people just never really leave high school.
Pose should have been the new “Sex and the City”.
I have an AMAZING family!
Things I have achieved and done this year.
Started streaming, and my goodness I LOVE it! I’ve managed to find myself a really sweet and kind community. Although I am not a licensed therapist (and I remind people of this frequently). The discussions we have, have been awesome! And I’ve only had to block two people for being crude =D
I LOVE my new job! Oh my god, the people are awesome, the work…while repetitive, is so interesting! And we all get along, even though we may not always agree. I think I’ve found what I’m supposed to do…Well, you know, until I win the lottery, haha!
I did the famous Leonard family “over catering” haha.
Been blocked by a lot of transphobes, hahahaha =D
Lost the cat, but it’s really his achievement that he came back…Hahahaa
I don’t want to get to deep into this for very clear reasons. She has been the biggest inspiration in my life. I am sure that if she was of “sound mind”, she’d tell me not get upset about her situation and keep living! This is why you LIVE every single moment of the day. Grow BEYOND high school.
And remember loving yourself, IS freeing. I feel so sorry for those with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. They don’t love anyone or anything. It’s true. It must be lonely.
Welcome to December 26, 2021 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC).
Today’s word is “mindful.”
Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.
Well, last week I lost the kitty. During that 5 days without him, the world kept spinning, the world didn’t stop, Christmas didn’t stop and I didn’t stop getting older because Travie was gone. There were a few people who kept apoligising too me because they thought their pain was less than mine. It kept me mindful, that everyone’s pain is valid, even when you are going through pain yourself. Christmas is a hard time of year, for a lot of people. It was a good lesson, that reMINDed me, that I am not the only here, living. It doesn’t mean don’t care of yourself and your pain, just a reMINDer, that other people have pain too.
I think one of the weirdest moments, that I have encountered this year and indeed over the last few years. Is the “Rights” mindset of wanting to “protect” themselves from the Government.
Except in most cases, the current “Leading” Governments, are ON their side.
Are not “Leftist’s” or “Liberal” or Democrats, by any stretch of the imagination.
They are all very much Right Wing Conservatives Christians. Who are very much on the Right side.
TERFs saying that they didn’t write the rule that women can’t “rape” under UK Law, that’s just the “rules”. Yet, TRA’s didn’t write the rules that trans women can go into women’s prison, and trans men can go into men’s prisons. Under UK Law, that’s just the Law.
When a women TERF says in one post “Protect all Women” and then in the next literal post, slut shame a lingerie female model, and say that’s the lingerie model is encouraging penis photos.
I have decided that this week, I am wiping my “mind”. By this, I am going to try reset my minds mindset. The way I do it though, may be a little different from how you do it though.
I like a clean out…Like, EVERYWHERE. So, when I say everywhere…I will clean out not only my closet/wardrobe. I also like to go through, say my computer, delete old and unneeded files. I sometimes have gone through Facebook, and deleted and untagged myself from photos. It is extremely therapeutic.
Last week, was International Peace Day, and I had nothing, haha. I am just so out of peace for people. But, over the weekend we had such a lovely weather. It was cold, but the Spring sun was out and not only did I get some vitamin D, but I actually had some ideas about how you can spread some peace about.
Now this is all going to be some ideas about what you can do for yourself. I find that when you are at peace, you can spread the peace to others. You can’t spread peace, if you are not at peace.
I find that even spending a day or two off of platforms like Twitter, Facebook, even Instagram, can clear out my head, a lot. Those platforms are such a mental health mess.
Do something outside, once a day. Do anything outside, for at least 10 minutes or more. Even during horrible weather. You can even just sit outside, watch the world go by.
Listen to your body.
Ask yourself questions. Would you really be okay if you left that task until tomorrow? Even if you can, would you be alright with that? If not, do it today, no matter how tedious.
When you’ve figured out how you’re doing, when you are at peace with yourself and your life. It becomes MUCH easier to help bring peace to others. Nothing bothers you as much, it’s all fine and dandy.
Like nothing out of the ordinary happened, but it was just weird…Do you know what I mean?
When I got my vaccine jab, I thought it might be a bit of a slow weekend, and the Friday night was, Saturday was…I slept in for a long time on the Sunday, as, because of my own anxieties I hadn’t slept well on the Friday. Sunday went fast, even on a day where if I had slept a long time, it was fast. I went to cook dinner, and the rice cooked fast, so then I had to cook the rest of it, I walked away to visit the loos. When I got back, it was all nearly burnt.
One pair of scissors has just disappeared. I found my sneakers in the back room, with NO clue how they got there. I know that the vaccine did ‘upset’ my body, as I expected it too. But when I saw the sneakers with no idea why they were in the back room. I didn’t think I was THAT bad, lol … Like I, jokingly, accused my partner of trying to mess with me.
You know, I think I just honestly remembered. When I got back from the jab. After a couple of hours, and realising I was doing okay. I thought I’d do a bit of gardening!!!! The weather was really beautiful! Ahh!!! Ahaha! After about a hour or so, I was starting to get tired. So I went into the back room, which looks out into the whole back yard, and I sat down. I must have taken them off then, why I didn’t take them to the bedroom, when I would have walked down to my room to slip into slippers…I don’t know, lol
I was happy, but not quiet right as well. The cat stepped on my vaccine jab, and after two days I can lift my arm a little bit more. The first night I had to get my partner to undo my bra, haha.
However, last week I discovered that I am now 70kgs, which is 154 pounds, 11 tonnes (I think). Which was depressing to me, because I don’t feel like I’m 70, lol. Up until the day I got my jab, I couldn’t think how was I going to change anything. It is partly to do with the medications that I’m on, that I can eat a lot. I never used to, and the food I did eat, was fruit or vegetable. I used to be able to make a packets of chips last a week, now they don’t last a hour, lol.
This weekend, including the day I got the jab, I’ve not done this. Like I ate things “as a treat”, but I couldn’t eat them all, and lord knows, I tried, lol. Is it possible that the vaccine has (hopefully) suppressed my appetite a little? I can still eat and enjoy eating still, I just can’t seem to eat as much.
This week has been slightly mind numbing, and it’s not tally the Taliban fault. Although that should be one of the top concerns for people right now, that and COVID.
Yet, you’d think reading some people’s posts, they’re most interested in being “right” and concerned with made up problems. Woke up today (an a example) with a TERF, having already spoken with the Daily Mail and The Telegraphs, both “news” outlets that love their transphobia. Saying how she was sacked for writing to concern to London’s Mayor about the rape crisis centres.
Now though, as always it’s come out with bigots. She wrote the letter over a year ago, with HER concerns, not any actually concerns. Also, she was let go because they were restructuring. Which is probably why she didn’t write to the Centers first and wrote the London Mayor. Who can’t really do that much, as a lot of rape crisis centers are allowed to run them how they see works to the victims benefits. If you don’t want to accept trans people into your center, you are allowed to apply for a exemption anyway. Also probably because none of the rape crisis centers are having problems with the trans community, others than a over flow of victims (COVID). She’s and the other TERFs are literally just making up problems at this point.
I am over it. They can lie as much as they want. We are starting to see them for what they are. They’re even threatening to withdraw funding for a made up concern.
So next week, let’s have fun!
My posts are going to be more fun and chipper. I think you can write about serious topics, but in a fun way. You just have to be really careful with how you do it. They’re mostly going to be fun, that makes you think about fun and how you incorporate fun things into your life. I don’t know about you, but my brain needs it.
