Listen to the Music

I love music, it definitely can change my mood. Halloween music can definitely get me in the mood of Halloween, and Samhain type Celtic music, makes me feel humbled, and that I should do more to honour those who have passed. Now I was thinking of doing my 5 favourite Halloween and 5 favourite Samhain…But I think I might stick with Samhain, for the moment. Everyone else will probably do a Halloween one anyway, lol

This probably my most favorite one…I even have it on my ipod…The Spiral Dance


Bernard Alvarez

If you haven’t heard this one, this one makes me feel wicked, but in a good way.

My bad, very no good day…

If you all wanted to see what I’m like in a bad mood then you probably should read this.

No work shifts, even though especially at the smaller places I actually  work, not the casual who keeps getting the shifts. On top of most of the casuals are not getting work (like 98% of us) for the next couple of weeks…They’re training two new casuals? … Why??? The casuals that are already there are getting no work, so why add two new people?

Then the live feed that I watch #safarilive. They are ending their sunrise drive, this Monday! I can only watch the Sunrise drive! It’s freaking ridiculous! I used to watch it when I didn’t have work and it’d keep my mind off not having work…What am I supposed to do now? It also annoys me because I know that most Americans watch the sunset, so I can pretty much guarantee that’s why they’re getting rid of sunrise. It’s freaking annoying! Every time they have a competition, it’s always just for America, any time they’ve had a tv special, it’s always shown just in America…Even though the show is in freaking Africa! Even though it’s mostly Americans who go over and kill the African animals…Why not just reward them even more!

Then I realised I am going to be “alone” for most of my birthday, since everyone is going away and I have to take care of the pets. Too thank me, I can’t do anything I want for my birthday. My mum “has” to go and celebrate my cousins birthday instead of mine, and then said “Well we can do something Sunday night instead” Except, they’ll be hang over, both my partner and I will have work the next day, so we can’t drink, and my partner NEVER goes out the Sunday before he goes out to work. He’s a teacher and school starts the next day, and that will probably why no one else will come, because everyone else has kids…So, no, not happening. Then my Dad wants me to celebrate with his side of the family, even though NONE OF THEM ARE TALKING TO EACH OTHER!…Yay…and he’s pissed that my cousin didn’t invite him to his wedding. I constantly get drunk messages from my Dad saying that I have to invite his side of the family, because no one like the other side. Even though NONE OF THEM ARE TALKING TO EACH OTHER! My partners family actually know the other side, not the side that are not talking to each other.

It’s a good thing I don’t suffer from anxiety or anything…oh wait…

I spent most of today/yesterday crying.

I mean jebus christ, my ex-friends made me feel like shit because I said I don’t want to be treated like shit anymore. I have to invite people to my wedding I don’t even like (and I’m not getting married yet) and even though I’m do the work of the slackers who don’t do their work. They keep getting shifts, and I don’t? I was standing up for safari live all the time, the Americans don’t even appreciate what they have. They constantly insult the guides and they expect fine quality camera work ALL the time, it’s freaking annoying!

What is your earliest memory?

I have a weird memory, in that if I see something I will remember it. Everything, feelings, smells etc. Sometimes a smell or feeling also make me remember. There’s a local library here, for example, when I walk in it reminds me of my Grandmother. Who is very much still alive, but it reminds me of her. I do remember though an nightmare I had YEARS ago. It’s weird when I think about it, I remember exactly what happened and how terrified I was and how I could never watch Mr Squiggle the same again!

Which way does the toilet paper roll go? Over or under?

Over…I think…I’m pretty sure I prefer over.

What makes you feel grounded?

It depends on what is going on with me, sometimes listening to music, playing with my dog helps. Other times it might be just having something funny to listen too on in the background, get my head together.

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’ve been having a rough this week, but just knowing that I am actually alright, helps…It’s just my anxiety playing up and I was doing so well, but then I got a call saying my cholesterol is a little high. So even the most smallest of things has been making me smile, because I am trying to worry less…Seriously I felt I was doing better until Wednesday -.- I really really…REALLY wish I had never gotten that call….SO just getting up and going to work to distract myself has made me happier.

Music is the very nature of our souls…Or something…

38. Your favourite music

I am definitely one of those annoying people who pretty much likes all the music…

Except for heavy death screaming metal…

What I love the most about music is that it can change your mood, you can switch yourself out of a mood or keep staying in a mood, just based on the music you listen too. I am sure that you have people out there who probably don’t even like music. For me though there have been times in my life where I feel like music as literally saved my life and has stopped me from making terrible mistakes.

This week Bookmark Chronicles wants to know….

Are there any books that you keep saying you’ll read, but haven’t gotten to yet?

(Maybe it’s a classic, one by your favorite author, or one that’s super popular and you’re interested but other things have gotten in the way)

I think this is a definite problem for me, I tend to reread the same books over and over again, while buying new books that I promise I’ll get into, but it just never happens. I am such a bad procrastinator, that it just takes over and sometimes I actually have to read a book I have already read and like, before I can get into the mood to read one I have been trying to read.

The book that I am currently starting to read that I can’t start reading. I had at one point even had it up on my Goodreads as a book I was currently reading, and then had to take it off, because I didn’t start reading it after all. The School of Good and Evil, author Soman Chainani. I bought this book, last year, on the Australian Election Day, 2nd July 2016, and have been starting to read it on and off ever since. I think that I have started to read it at least three different times. Then Christmas came along and I received all the books I had asked for, so now it’s been put on the back-burner again.

The Holiday Blues

I have been noticing a lot of “holiday blues” post over the last couple of weeks and I have to admit that I am kind of feeling them a bit this year. Part of is due to I don’t always feel comfortable going out at the moment. The other part is…it’s just been a crappy year, and the thought of 2017, isn’t looking too much brighter at the moment.

We’ve had very close votes for nearly every single country, all of which has brought out a lot of hate. I do mean a scary amount of hate. The thing is, most of the stuff that’s happening in 2017 hasn’t even happened yet! We’ve been seeing just the run up. No wonder everyone is feeling a little more down this year…It’s been horrifying!

What I try to do when I’m feeling a bit blue around times that should be happy. I try to focus on that occasion. Instead of reading the news, I’ll read if there are any specials on things I need. Instead of reading opinions, I’ll read a good book, full of my own imagination.

I know it’s hard. Sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram are hard to put behind. Think about it like this. If your best friend was getting upset because of these sites and was becoming addicted to these sites. What would you do? It’s an interesting thought that we would be more willing to stop our friends and help them, then ourselves. It’s amazing how even having one day off can make the world of difference.

Clean, Bake, Make and Craft.

The hardest thing is to give yourself permission to take a day off.

Music Appreciation

As I mentioned before in one of my recent posts “Blog Block” I have this thing for music when it comes to mood. Music, for me, is almost like a mood ring…You can tell how I’m feeling by the music I listen too.

“Jared Leto – Some people believe in God, I believe in music. Some people pray, I turn up the radio”. 

So I thought that I would make up a list of the general songs I listen to, depending on my mood, please feel free to share this list or tag other people in the list.

  1. Creative Block: Anything Celtic sounding
  2. Angry: Anything by AC/DC…Anything metal or rock
  3. Happy: (This may be a cliche) “Happy” by Pharell Williams
  4. Getting ready for fun/party/dancing: “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson
  5. General Happiness: Anything by Delta Goodrem
  6. Sadness: Wendy Matthews
