M is for Moolah aka Money

I have been very interested to watch two of the biggest “documentaries” of the year. One is actually a mini series, the other is a documentary.

The documentary is called “McMillion$” which is about the McDonald’s game in the US. Where they found that people who were saying that they were winning the millions of dollars, but weren’t really winning the millions of dollars. The other is a mini series about the UK scandal that was “Who wants to be millionaire” *cough cough*.

Isn’t it interesting, what motivates people sometimes?

Both men in the situation, were both people who were involved in protecting other people. So what made them turn to defraud people? One was a former police officer until he developed a MS health like condition. The other was in the Army, and rose to the rank of Major, which is pretty darn impressive.

Is that just the way I think? Isn’t it weird? I couldn’t even begin to explain why, and only they will ever truly knew.

QUESTIONS:

What’s the first thing you’d do if you won the lottery or came into a huge fortune? 

I have often thought about it (We have one today…that is 100 hundred million dollars!). Can you imagine it? The first thing I would is pay off my parents mortgages, IF, they still wanted to stay in their current locations. I think they would, too be honest. It’d all be getting property and seeing a financial investment. I wouldn’t want a fancy multi million dollar house. I’d just want something comfortable and close to a lot of easy access.

Which decade do you think had the best sense of style?

Oh my god, if I and everyone else could dress like they did the 60’s. I would be so happy. I feel like that is my style era. I should seriously dress like that more!

…Or maybe it’s an Austin Powers thing?lol

Would you rather be half your height or double your weight?

Oh god! That’s the choice?lol. Since I’m trying to lose weight at the moment, I don’t really want to double my weight. I’m short, but I could probably live life even shorter,lol.

If you wanted to get away from everyone totally, where would you hide?

Depending on the time of year, if it was warmer I would stay in a beach town somewhere. Or if it’s colder, somewhere where you can have an open fire place (as long as someone else makes the fire,lol).

What do you do that you love?  ❤

I’m very lucky there isn’t a lot in my life that I don’t love. Even where I work, I wish I had more permanent hours, but I really enjoy who I work with.

Money doesn’t equal happiness

If you haven’t heard or don’t know who James Packer is (I am sure that most of probably have some idea who he is). James Packer is a very rich…VERY…rich businessman and investor. You might know him most recently from his engagement to Mariah Carey.

Recently though he decided to resign his positions because of mental health issues.

I’m sure you’ve all heard about Justin Bieber and Hailey (Hayly?) Baldwin engagement. Only a couple of months after they broke up with their respective partners. Also known as “serial daters” Does anyone REALLY believe in their love? Also #selenaisfreeparty (I think she’s already had that party).

It just went to show me that you can all the money and all the resources at your feet. Neither does money give you happiness or love. I think the kindest thing James Packer has every done for others is too resign, or take leave. It shows to a lot more people that mental health can affect anyone no matter the circumstances. You can everything and still need help. More self love.

A bit too heavy for the morning?

Do you use paper money? If so is your money organized sequentially according to denomination?

Oh my goodness, I do both of these! I still prefer using paper money, I will use “pay wave” and the like, but I feel REALLY uncomfortable doing it. Where is my information going, is it being stored?….I know…paranoia! I do also organise my money, I have to “notes” section in my wallet. One side will have $5 and $10, the other $20 and $50.

You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time?

Some might say too much so! Although I guess a lot of time reading. When it gets cooler in Summer and when Spring starts, sometimes I just like to sit outside and enjoy the water. Usually my cat or dog hangs around me and I play with them, but I’m usually just sitting.

What is your greatest strength?

I’d have to say it’s my Heart. I don’t want to sound completely up myself. It’s a little ironic really as well. My great grandparents on my Mum’s side, just dropped, their hearts gave out. My Dad has had a triple bypass. While I say my hearts my greatest strength. I don’t necessarily mean physically. I’m one of those seemingly rare people, who just because I had a bad day or a bad sleep, doesn’t mean I become a raving lunatic. I can still be there for others, no matter what I’m going through. What I have to learn is to make sure people don’t take advantage of that.

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. 

I made myself smile this week. For the longest time since I’ve had these anxiety issues, I’ve really struggled getting on buses…Which since I don’t drive, it’s become very costly. I decided by myself, that I am going to reduce the number of taxis and Uber I take. The best present, I decided, to give myself, is to save some money and take another step forward in controlling my anxiety. SO I did it and I’ve already saved myself in this one week over a hundred dollars =D

How do you like your eggs?

I honestly like my eggs every way that you can think of, I don’t really dislike one way or the other. However, my favourite has to be scrambled egg. Just thinking about it, makes me hungry and I just had dinner!

Have you ever met anyone famous?

I kind of have. I’ve been to a lot of those “nerd type” conventions where people “Cosplay” and you meet and take photos with different types of pop culture icons. So technically I have, but I haven’t sat down and had a conversation with them. The ones that I’ve taken photos with (I’ll just name a couple..Mainly the ones I can remember):

  • Benedict Cumberbatch…but he was so popular it was so quick!
  • Jason Momoa…He was totally gorgeous! So tall…and mhmm =D He’s been my favourite so far, mainly because he was SO personable. I think that’s why he keeps doing them.
  • Jewel Staite from Firefly and some others…I think she was in a Stargate as well?
  • James Marsters – Spike from Buffy and Angel…He was so shy!
  • I got a photo with a Dwarf and a Hobbit =D

I’ve got a folder full of the photos I’ve gotten over the years. I’m just waiting for David Borenaz and Matt Smith!

What was the first thing you bought with your own money?

I think it would have been a cd?…I am actually almost convinced that it was Hansons “mmmbop”.

When it comes to the #safarilive group, there are other cams that we watch when Safari Live isn’t on. It’s just been nice this week too just been chatting with them causally this week. We seem to have all had a semi rough week this week and it’s been nice just chatting with them all.

(I’ve been having a bit of trouble with the links, so I’ll just link the Cee’s Photography main page instead)

Would you want $200,000 right now or $250,000 in a year? It’s safe to assume all money is tax free.

I think with the way things are at the moment, I could probably wait another year and get that extra $50,000. I have two casual jobs but I am getting pretty steady work. It’s just that I’d like just that little bit extra.

Is it more important to love or be loved?

Oh god, good question!I think it’s more to just love. You can’t really make others love you, they have to want too and they may not love you 24/7 either. Being loved can make you feel, but meeting others with love instead, I feel, can be so much more stronger. Makes you feel better about yourself as well. Being loved is just an extra bonus, but do not rely on it. That’s when people make bad choices!

List things that represent abundance to you.

  • Giving love
  • Good Health…Not just eating a lot, but actual good health.
  • Alive and pretty flowers/trees.
  • I have always though if you have birds coming into your yard, you have to be doing something right.

Share Your World … Week 34

What is your favorite comfort snack food?

I really love Nacho Cheese Doritos, they are so amazing! I could through a whole packet of them, every single time…And I may have…Once…or a few times…But not anymore! I have started to eat more healthy lately, so no more entire packets! I’ve cut down a lot.

Is the paper money in your possession right now organized sequentially according to denomination and with the bills right side up and facing the same way?

It is actually, my purse is a little small so I’ve had too fold the notes in half. I always try to put them in order though, with the smallest amount on the inside.

If you were a mouse in your house in the evening, what would you see your family doing?

Not much to be honest, especially at the moment, I’ve been sick the last couple of weeks. Generally I end up playing some kind of computer and will get on Facebook…and WordPress at some point. My Mum goes to meditation once a month.

Would you rather not be able to read or not be able to speak?

I honestly would rather not be able to read, because I could honestly listen to audio books and possibly get other people to read to me. Not being able to speak seems completely terrifying to me. I may not be able to speak well sometimes, but when I do, it’s honest and full.

Share Your World…Week 46

What type of popular candy you do not like to get?

I am actually not a big chocolate person, I have to actually be in the mood to want to eat it. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times people have bought me chocolate as a gift and it’s taken me months to eat it. I have to tell boyfriends to not buy me chocolates.

What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $500? 

This one can depend on what’s going on my life at that time. If I am able to pay my bills and I’m alright with food and other essentials. It also depends on the time of year, at the moment for example, I might spend a couple of hundred on Christmas presents and save the rest (just in case). If that’s all good, I would probably go to my favourite online store Boohoo (Australia) and see what sales they have one (can’t help a good sale!). Definitely a good night out would be in order, or maybe a cheeky night away with the beau =D

Where do you eat breakfast?

If I happen to eat breakfast it usually at home sitting on the couch, probably watching cartoons to be honest,lol.

Would you rather ride one of the worlds longest zip lines or bungee jump one of the highest in the world? This will come with a 5-day all expense vacation.

I have always wanted to a try a zip line! I would definitely go with the zip line! They just look like so much fun.
