Let’s be honest, the worlds a bit shit right now.

Mass Shootings,

Body Autonomy being taken away

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’m going to do it!

I don’t know 100% what I’m going to do, but it’s going to happen. There are so many things that I want to get back into, like writing and I was started to “create” badges last year, I just don’t know how to do that. The world is pretty sad right now, and I need to get back into something that makes me happy.

My Focus…Week 1

I now participate in a weekly blog challenge called “Nurture Thursday”. Last week the topic was called “Your Focus”

I decided to make a pledge of sorts and since then, every day I will be doing something that is going to take me somewhere and will record each day what I did that day.

Day 1: Started my exercise and diet to lower my cholesterol and I already feel fantastic! I have heard before that exercise can release endorphins…and I guess it’s true! It’ll be interesting to see tomorrow if I am hurting all over!

Day 2: I worked all day, and after that I got to go and see “Aladdin the Musical” So I didn’t have much time to do something…However, I say that. Yet, I haven’t been to the theatre in a few years and I was slightly anxious. I’m alright with movie cinemas, but they’re more roomy and they actually cold instead of warm. So I was anxious and you can leave a cinema anytime, theatre you can’t really manage to do that.

Day 3: We are voting today, I am really optimistic. A lot of Labor’s “stuff” just make sense. What’s more to do than vote for your Country? I also did my second lot of exercise. I have to do it every 3-4 days.

Day 4:...Well…Shit…There I said it. What upsets me the most is that it’s become more apparent that people voted for Liberals (Republicans for Americans) For either 1) They liked Shorten less? 2) They wanted to ‘own’ progressives. Either way, it’s completely immature. Need a packet of chips…But no! So I decided to sign off of social media for a few days. I went ahead in the afternoon and continued with my online studies. It’s for Health Administration. I think I’d make a good receptionist for a medical/dentist office.

Day 5: So I went and did another round of exercise (I’m supposed to do it 3-4 times a week). I’ve decided to increase the “reps” that I did every second time I do exercise. So I increased the amount this time. I did freak a little this morning, the cat was twitching a lot. I did not watch the last episode of GOT…today.

Day 6: I was called into work today, rather late. So I’m finding it hard to do anything today.

Day 7: After a hard night sleep, I got called into work all day. So while it’s annoying and it’s stopping me from doing stuff. There are still things I have looked into today. Self businesses, redbubble. Things I’ve been talking about forever. But finding out more about what is entailed. Like do I have to draw things, copyright. I actually have been at my mum’s the past two days, specifically because I thought I wasn’t working. So I could spend time with the family dog…and my mum…of course. But I’ve been working, so more money…Yay…But I’ve been trying not cry when I leave the house over guilt.

 

At the End of the Day – Nurt Thursday

Nurt Thurs – At the End of the Day

I was thinking about this a lot today and I’m honestly not really 100% sure what makes a successful day for myself at the moment.

At the moment writing a Blog post definitely makes me feel motivated and keeps me writing! If I don’t write at least part of a Blog in a day, I usually can’t write anything! That’s the honest truth!

At the end of the day, the most important thing is that I end the day happy. It doesn’t matter what I’m happy about if I can sleep happy in the knowledge of how lucky I am. I sleep well.

(Probably my favourite Musical of all time!)

April Goals

My birthday is in April, so I’m hoping to do a lot of fun goals…But I have to do some serious work too!

Sad Autumn GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

(Seriously you would not it’s Autumn here at the moment…It’s 96.8 F today! = 36 C)

  • Find some low cholesterol recipes…I went to the doctors and my cholesterol is a bit high, so over the next month they want me to lower it. It has been amazing after that and looking at the actual packaging on food, how much sodium there is in everything! I need to sit down and look up/write some recipes.
  • I’ve decided that I’m going to have a “slumber pj movie night” for my birthday, it’s going to be held in the first weekend of May.
  • For my birthday I am going to look into having a “make your own smoothie” bar, since I can’t really drink. See how I can have movies and games at the same time.
  • Maybe…Maybe looking at hiring outdoor furniture for my partners house for my birthday…Maybe…
  • Look for a frame that will fit 4 A4 size pictures in…Maybe ask for one for my birthday,lol
  • Try Winter jeans/pants on, make sure that they still fit.
  • Too finish “Lord of Shadows” and write up a review
