I do blame social media

I do blame it for a lot of the problems in today’s world.

You can’t someone like Jack from Twitter say we’re going to really crack down on bullying and then just keep letting the POTUS continually a 16 year old girl, because she knows how to handle herself.

Spending the last few days, nearly a whole week off of social media, because of just not being able to access it. It’s been really nice, I cannot tell a lie. I’ve been taking photos and things, writing ideas down for blogging. Generally though, it’s been quiet. The first time I came back on, it was alright too. I just had a lot of dog on my Instagram feed. Then the next time, that’s when it started to get back into again.

When I came back on as well, I noticed that the same people I had left behind had been on over the entire Christmas days. I felt sad for them, and pretty sorry as well. I think it’s kind of sad that they’d rather go and follow people they don’t like, to “argue” with people they don’t know, over Christmas.

I’m not Religious, I’m more spiritual than anything. So I’m not into the whole celebrating Jesus’s birthday. I love just being with family and spending time with them…Getting the gifts, don’t hurt either. This was the also the first year I didn’t speak to my Dad over Christmas, but that was okay too. Even my Mum had to block my Dad in the end as well. She was the one who felt sorry for him, until he insulted her parents. Her parents (my grandparents), her father is Dad and her mum is still alive. But no matter their faults, they are definitely a world better than my Dads parents, their Dad beat up my Dads twin brother. Too the point, he was nearly dead. All because my Dads dad, didn’t believe his own son has tourette’s.

It’s like my cousin said today, the internet is a great tool, but it has really exposed a lot of faults in our world. Especially with human beings.

Perception…

I guess this goes on from the outrage about Justin Bieber calling Chris Brown “legendary”.

Michael Jackson, Chris Brown and even Justin Bieber. All seen as “wholesome” despite their violence, their clear ignorance, (probable paedophile) or being very shady and being apologist for violent people…All do pop family friend music. Yet, 2Pac would have been the one hounded all the time by the police because he was a rapper.

2Pac didn’t do any of that…Yet, we look at the life of a rapper as being something not to aspire too…You know, at least you know what you’re getting with fellow rappers. (So proper of me,lol)

Perspective

It’s getting closer to my Birthday and I anticipate one or two things maybe Harley Quinn related…I am a massive fan of Harley Quinn, mainly original Harley…

The thing is though a lot of people think because I like Harley Quinn, then I must love her relationship with the Joker…and I actually detest it

…It’s a completely abusive relationship.

Harley Quinn, too me, is a crazy gal, who just wants to be love and accepted…and she LOVES her “babies” (Bud and Lou)…Those moments where she feels betrayed by the Joker and she tries to be a “good guy” but no one really lets her. I feel like that sometimes, I feel like I’m doing the right thing, but others make me feel bad for doing it…Only difference is I don’t go to the dark side.

An Interesting Perspective

I saw this article over the weekend and I thought that it was definitely an interesting perspective and kind of one I agree with (please read it first) and then discuss it.

Why I love J.K. Rowling (and wish she’d stop writing sequels)

I can completely understand how the writer has this point of view. It’s like the way that I feel with JRR Tolkien and his son writing books, and trying to continue the series. JRR Tolkien’s son books just do not have the same appeal too me as the ones that Tolkien wrote himself.

For me more personally as well I don’t like when she randomly comes out with “Oh no, the character is this, or the this character is that” Then the Potterheads gets on anyone’s case who doesn’t think of a character like that. That’s the thing that’s supposed to be about books and people’s imaginations, it’s all a very personal thing. I do respect that Rowling will speak out on important matters.

This week I want to know if you prefer reading books that are in:

A single character’s perspective

OR

Multiple perspectives

 One of my favourites author is Jodi Picoult and I think that pretty much every single one of her books has each characters point of view. I love the notion you can get all points of view, which means you can see all parts of the story. Even with the characters that are deemed the “villain” at the start of the story, you start reading it from their point of view and you feel, sometimes, sorry for them and see they are the victims of a much larger scheme.

So I would have to say that I enjoy a multiple perspective story. Although the only downside really is that, depending on the writer, the story can get confusing. I have noticed that with Jodi Picoult books, depending which which character they are focusing on at the time. They will write that particular character in a specific font. They are written in chapters, but with each characters “chapter” comes a specific font.

A womans random thoughts

One of the things I do enjoy about “that time that nearly every single woman on this earth has” is that I get so wrapped in so much I come up with some many random thoughts. Here are a few that I’ve had today:

*Someone needs to come up with a new “couple Facebook profile picture” craze…Went through a friends list and every single couple on their list look like they were at the formal or something. Love is supposed to be crazy and fun! It’s supposed make you feel inspired, not formal and posed.

*Talking about “happy couple pictures”…Don’t ever judge a couple pictures by the profile picture they chose to share with you. Some of the best profile pictures I’ve ever had, or people just “loved of us” were taken after a MASSIVE horrible argument and it was their way of “shutting me up”.

*I am really over the cold…Like every time I go to work, or funerals or something like that. The weather has been beautiful and then I want to go out and have ‘fun’ its been wet, grey and cold. I am physically over it! Normally when I’m at home I try not to turn the heating and rug up, not today! All the heaters are on, because I just don’t care.

*Animals are cool, when you think people actually want Donald Trump as president, a lady not doing her job and is a homophone won’t be fired (when they are thousands of people looking for work and will happily do her job if she doesn’t want it), and the Australian Prime Minister wants to send out “security forces” to check people papers like were back in WWII…Animals are WAY cooler than us.

*What is with this whole “I’m not singling you out” after you are the only person that they’ve mentioned? Why can’t people just be adult and admit that your issue with you? “I’m not singling you out, even though you’re the only person I mentioned”.

*Having tattoos, swearing and drinking heavily does not make you “hardcore”. Being who you truly are, having the backbone to be honest with others and with yourself, taking responsibility for the pain you cause for others is “hardcore” to me.

That greener grass

I’ve had a few interesting times over this last year, just personally I’ve felt like I’ve changed a lot and have become a lot more sure of who I am.

As a general rule when someone goes through something like a lot of things, for example your friendships. Also though women I used to really admire, use to really look up too, I have down a full 180 on them. They’re all smart, successful in their careers, stunningly beautiful, they take really good care of their health. Even though they are some of my best friends

However there is one thing that I’ve never really realised before, they can’t be alone. They are always with someone. These smart, successful, beautiful women NEED to have a men in their life to make their life “credible”.

There’s this one girl who is actually one of my ex’s, ex’s before me. She cheated on my ex with his best friend and they eventually got married. Ever since I’ve known her though, my ex was planning on asking her to marry him, had the ring, everything, but she turned him down because she was in love with his best friend. I’ve noticed though, she seems to get remarried every couple of years. Recently I noticed that she was already dating someone (via taking a picture of herself in her underwear) and her last post with her husband has only been two weeks beforehand on Facebook. Yet, no one else seems to have noticed? It’s like she’s going through so many guys no one even cares any-more.

Then there’s one of my best friends, obsessed is an understatement with her finding a guy. It’s pretty much all our conversations have been over the last two years…I am not even kidding. She’s been hypnotherapy, all sorts of things…None of it seems to work. Then she’ll meet some guy and for the next month she’ll be in total love and then he turns out to be a jerk or just doesn’t like her as much as she likes him and it’s all over again.

One of the things that fascinates me though the most is that neither of these girls wants to have children. So what’s with the desperation? You can get married at any age.

That’s beside the point though, it’s just fascinating that these two women who I used to really admire and wish that I had their life, I’m glad that I don’t have their life.
