Share Your World – April Fools Week 2019

Share Your World – 1/4/19

Share Your World

Rhetorical Questions, but feel free to answer if you’d like:

Why is it called “beauty sleep” when one wakes up looking like a troll??

If anyone is like me, the reason it’s called a “Beauty Sleep” is because of Sleeping Beauty. Sometimes when you sleep, it can feel like you’ve slept for an age. That’s just my theory anyway.

Why do they sterilize needles for lethal injections?

I guess it’s just a standard? Here in Australia, even though we don’t have lethal injections anymore. I would guess that they would still need to be sterilised, as some sort of standard practice. If who ever encounters the needle gets stabbed themselves, for whatever reason. Then they wont be infected either. There’s a lot of clumsy people out there. I managed to get a paper bag cut while food shopping the other day.

Why do most cars have speedometers that go up to at least 130 when you legally can’t go that fast on any road?

That one I have absolutely no idea. I actually talked about this a few weeks ago with my partner. He said he doesn’t really understand either. There comes a speed when you can’t even control the car after a certain speed…So who knows.

Did they purposely make dyslexia hard to spell?

Yes!lol…I actually suffer from dyslexia myself and it took me a while to remember how to spell it properly. I always feel stupid if I get the letters mixed up.

(Rather naughty):  If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?

Test…ical =D lol


Odd but a bit philosophical or personal:

What are some things that are okay to do occasionally but definitely not okay to do every day?

Eat a whole pack of nacho Doritos…I’d like to be able too…But, probably, not the best idea for me.

What is the most embarrassing thing you have ever worn?

I actually wrote about this a few weeks ago. I was helping my Pa build a bit of a dingy years and year ago. I wore these legging that were really baggy, like really badly baggy. But I wasn’t wearing them to make a fashion statement. However my brother and cousin are really into Fashion and would not stop paying me out.

In your opinion, what’s the best type of cheese?

Jarlsberg Cheese…It is so freaking good! I feel like drooling just thinking about it.

What are some fun ways to answer everyday questions like “how’s it going” or “what do you do”?

I honestly have no idea.


Miscellaneous:

Have you ever sent a text message to the wrong person?   Details please.

I have actually, but it really wasn’t that serious, which was lucky! … Or not depending on you look at the situation. I have accidentally sent a text to my Dad that was meant for my partner. Which could have been truly horrifying! As you can imagine! Luckily all I was texting my partner about was dinner that night. I say, not so lucky, because then I ended up having to talk to my Dad. Talking to my Dad is always a chore, he sort of expects you to talk to him. So he’ll send a text that usually wouldn’t require a response, but he expects one.

If you could make a rule for a day, and everyone had to follow it, what would it be?

Before you post or reply to something online, you have to wait at least 5 minutes AND do some actual research before you post. No posting a picture with words on it, ie, memes. You HAVE to be able to back it up with some actual facts.

You are about to get in a fight, what song comes on your mind soundtrack?

There are so many and it depends who you are fighting and why you are fighting, or am I thinking about this too much?lol

Ex-friends – Kill them with kindness – Selena Gomez…Namaste…lol

General person on the street – Eye of the Tiger – Survivor…Well I assume this one, this has never actually happened to me,lol…I have never gotten into a fight with some randomly on the street.

If it’s my Mum – Mama – Spice Girls…lol


Share a joke, if you know a good one!

Best Not…Don’t want to lose my “cool” image =Plol

Don’t Worry be Happy

A couple of weeks ago I had the weirdest day I had had in such a long time. I was going for my L’s Theory test and the first thing that happened was I bumped into someone from high school and we had a chat about my ex friends from high school and that situation. Then I went and did the test and went across the road to the local mall and walked pass this girl that has never liked me and she recently unfriended me on Facebook. (I don’t know when she did it, but we both got tagged in something and that’s when I realised, because I don’t go to her page) Since I don’t have an issue with her, I smiled and she gave me the coldest shoulder (and no smile) I have ever received.

I had to laugh and shake my head…It’s ridiculous!

I’ve always had this feeling that she’s thought that there’s some sort of competition between us…and I just genuinely do not give a…

I don’t even understand it because all the guys in this group love her. She’s done these horrible things and they still love her, so that’s them, not me. I don’t like how she’s treated people (myself included) but it’s not like they don’t know what she’s done. Maybe it’s because I don’t worship her or something like that? Generally I don’t do that for anyone, not even with celebrity. I’ve never understood that frame of mind.

Anyways, I digress,

I laughed and shook my head because it made me realise something. I don’t have time or the mental space to worry about people’s make believe problems anymore. How privileged she should feel that someone who doesn’t really care about her…Doesn’t care about her, but everyone else still loves her…I would LOVE to have those problems!

The best lessons in life, are often the hardest!

With any relationship in life (whether that be romantic, friendly and family) sometimes the worse situations we go through with them, are the lessons in life that are the hardest to learn.

Throughout my life (and I am sure others as well) I have learnt the most about myself and others, through my worse situations. Over the years this has meant that I have learnt every single time from it.

It’s been coming up a lot about how I’ve been since I lost my “friends”…I was worried myself for a bit there because I was really happy to be honest,lol…Maybe I am this terrible human being…Then I started to realise, no, it’s because life before this has taught me so much and when I started to realise how little they brought to my life…because it’s was always about them…Not anybody else…That’s when I forgave myself for not being sadder.

It was interesting because my partner said to me that if they came back on their hands and knees begging for my forgiveness and I said “No…I’ve already forgiven them, but I will never be friends with any of those three ever again”.

I had a situation a few years ago where these two girls were constantly cyber bullying me and it got to the point where I deactivated my account. I then made a new Myspace (that’s how old this story is!) and I did not put these girls back…for more than obvious reasons and I lost a LOT of “friends” because of that. I was competently gobsmacked by that, but it also proved who truly did care and who never did. All those who had unfriended me never had a conversation with me before they did it. It became very apparent to me that these people clearly put certain parts of their anatomy over actual friendships.

The funniest part I found about that situation is that over the years they’ve stopped speaking with each other, but then came back together and stopped speaking again,lol…Then one of them sent me a friends request on Facebook, no message, nothing, no apology…So I declined,lol

The biggest reason I don’t miss them is because they never brought ANYTHING to my life, it was always about them! You can’t miss what was never there!

Forgive…Or just don’t care?

That is the question…

I was just randomly thinking about this…and my current situation with some people.

My Mum has always said that the opposite to love is not hate, it’s indifference..and I agree with her.

I was talking about my situation with a few people and they said “I’ll bet it takes you a while to forgive them” and the thing is…I already had…the next day….I thought to myself I think a lot of it had to do with simple the fact, I just had stop caring.

I was more shocked that not one of them mentioned that I had ended up in hospital and not a single one of them mentioned that they were glad to hear that I was alright.

However, that was just even more proof too me…It was always about them…Hindsight and all that…I have been more upset about losing jerks of ex’s.

But had I forgiven them so quickly, because I just did not care anymore?

So if you just don’t plain care anymore, is that the same as forgiveness? Or is it just easier to forgive because you don’t care either way.

My Mantra

I have been hearing a lot lately about Mantra’s and I have not only been wanting to figure out what they are, but what are they meant for?

How to create your own personal mantra – Oprah

A Personal Mantra is a sound or a group of words that are personal to yourself and yourself alone. You repeat them to yourself…They can be syllables, a sound.

Spiritual Mantra’s are a sacred utterance, a sound, a syllable, word or phonemes, or group of words in Sanskrit believed by practitioners to have psychological and spiritual powers. A Mantra may not have a syntactic structure or literal meaning.

Mantra – Wikipedia

The most well known Mantra is “OM”

OM

Om is said to be the first sound heard at the creation of the universe. When each syllable is pronounced fully, you should feel the energy of the sound lifting from your pelvic floor all the way up through the crown of your head. The droning sound of the Om is said to unblock the throat chakra, which can lead to more attuned communication with others.

Why am I writing all this?

I want to find my OWN personal mantra…The best way I’ve discovered that most people do this is too:

  • Write in a journal for 30 minutes, write in the mornings as your mind is usually clearer at this time.
  • Rewrite what you have to written, put more a pertinent focus on what you’ve written.
  • Write a focused, declarative statement.
  • 10 minutes a day…Say this statement. You can do it walking, you can do it eating…

Restart 2018

Restart – The Daily Post – One Word Prompt

I have been doing a lot of thinking today and it’s been interesting. It was a huge coincidence that a lot of things I’ve been thinking about had to do with the one word prompt from the Daily Post – Restart.

I have not had the best start to 2018. In fact it’s been pretty terrible, my casual position with the Library was terminated…and no one told me.  I “lost” three best friends. I just recently discovered that one of my other “friends” from High School unfriended me as well, but kept my mother…Bizarre? (My mother unfriended her). The poor fool, none of the other girls like her. She keeps popping out babies (6 kids to four different dads) and the others HATE kids…Let alone the lack of respect of her and her children. My other casual job has given me less hours.

However, while I’ve been frustrated…I’m perfectly fine…I haven’t cried once. I am in fact…feeling the best I’ve felt for a really long time.

I know right?!lol

For everything that’s gone wrong…So much is going right! I’m now in talks right now to help volunteer at a writing club! I am completely scared out of my mind, but completely excited about it too…For every person that has “unfriended” me recently, I have gotten close to others. All the people that keep unfriending me, they have always been toxic to my life. Which mean that I am being left with those who really love me and care about me. Getting less hours, it’s been a kind of compliment as well, I am worth more than new workers, like literally…Because I’ve been working there longer, I get more per hour than they do…So it’s not a personal thing…I’m just worth way too much,lol…I have also become really social…I now have the skills to talk to strangers and make general chit-chat…Even two months ago, I would never have been able to do that. Having to see different people (doctors, hospitals etc) to talk about my health and my issues, it’s made me more upfront…This is it…This is me…

So while I wish some things hadn’t happened, or had happened at different times…If wasn’t for those people, those moments…I wouldn’t be here now. I’m even getting WAY more views on my Blog that I was before…I’m not sure what happened there,lol

Would you…or would you not?

I was reading up about how Kim Catrall had at go at SJP sending her condolences about Catrall’s brother. A lot of people came to SJP’s defence. I have to say though and Kim Catrall said it as well

If we are not friends, and it is ABUNDANTLY clear that we are not friends…I would be pretty pissed at someone for sending condolences, especially on a sudden family death. I may not have a go at that person publicly, but I would certainly be pissed! If one of my ex’s friend sent me condolences, I wouldn’t say a word, but I would still be peeved. You should wait and see if the grieving person comes to you first.

Maybe it’s just me though?

(Sorry, I hadn’t originally posted the link!) 

Complete this sentence: I want to learn more about …

I would love to just keep learning in general. I love to learn. If we get specific though, I would love to learn more about all these ancient cultures that I am completely fascinated with.

On a vacation what you would require in any place that you sleep?

Mainly that it just be tidy and clean. Nothing worse that hopping into a bed that has dirty sheets. Also that it’s not too cold or too hot. I kind of struggle when it comes to sleeping in places that I’m not familiar with.

What is your greatest extravagance?

I am actually about to buy my greatest extravagance, it’s of a Harley Quinn figurine with her “Hyena”…Yes, hyena…Wrapping their leashes around her leg, while she’s trying to shop. I just need to organise my taxes, but I should have enough to buy it.

If you’re in Australia, find it here: Batman: The Animated Series – Harley Quinn Harley’s Holiday 10” Statue

If you’re in America, find it here: Batman: The Animated Series – Harley Quinn Harley’s Holiday 10” Statue

Before that though, there was a drawing that I commissioned a few years ago (see below) and I have been in love with it ever since. At the time it wasn’t expensive because they were first finding their feet. Too me though it was a extravagance because it was a drawing of me. Surrounded by a lot of “fantasy life” type things. I had never really asked someone to draw me in any way whatsoever. Please press the links for of the Anthea’s work,

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

I guess what’s inspired me this week was my Dad going into hospital and having heart surgery, it’s definitely made me want to be more healthy. It’s not just about living forever, it’s also about living well. So you don’t have to go to hospital.
