  1.  Understand that I am not a china doll. I don’t need romance, I need real and I need a partner by my side. You cannot be by and on my side if you raise me above you or look down on me.
  2. If you can get my paranoid chihuahua to like you…You’re in,lol..My last ex when he left my house after we talked about breaking up, my chihuahua came and laid down on his foot…She has NEVER done that before, I wanted to beg him to stay after that.
  3.  I am an idealist, but do not mistake that for being a fool. I call myself the most realist idealist you will ever meet. I love the idea of love and everyone being best friends, but I know when to walk away from a bad situation and I will.
  4. I need actions, not words to prove to me. Please be patient, please be kind…Like I said I am not china doll and I know how to protect myself.
  5. Nacho Cheese Doritos…Not chocolate…Or get me a unique flower…I am not like the other girls,lol
  6. I love books…Ever heard of that saying “You know how guys will buy a girl drink, I wish that they would walk into a book-store and buy me a book”…Yeah that’s me, hehe.
  7. Be HONEST! If I am asking why did you do something, it’s because I want to understand, because I care enough to want to know how your mind works, so that we can work together. I am not asking to attack you, I am asking because I want to know and learn about you more.
  8. I hate the term “Friendzone” just don’t…If it seems I am rejecting you, just ask me about it.

Magical Rants!

MondayMorning

I had a pretty bad weekend this weekend and I haven’t been through so many emotions in one whole weekend in such a long time! I was felt let down, back-stabbed, but also laughed and danced a lot. Then there is that moment that makes you go…”Oh No it’s Monday again!” So I am trying to look at it with a positive point of view!

With that being said I am not going to be talking about a favourite character,book or movie (or favourite YouTube clip). I am going to take a positive view this week and instead of looking at whole of the bad things that happened last week…I am going to start this week with a positive view and there aint nothing more magical than making a Monday magical!

  1. I have a roof over my head and I can always find something to eat.
  2. No matter what mood I am in, I have a dog that always makes me smile and loves to see me at all times!
  3. I can at least say that I was with someone who treated me with kindness, respect, safety and made me happy at all times.
  4. I am succeeding quite well with my Cataloguing class (Believe me when I say that is a BIG deal!)lol
  5. I’m still healthy.

Pippy Lou!

End of an era…

As some of my ‘follower’s may know during these last few months I was following a normal every day family take on an extraordinary challenge. The ‘Dash’ family decided to take on the responsibility to look after a single ostrich. They took a single egg and people from all around the world watched the ‘birth’ of Pip as he broke painfully slowly out of his shell. 

I watched the whole hatching process and it was completely lovely and grew attached to Pip and fell in love at first trilled. At the same time I was going through probably the worst break up I have ever had to experience in the whole of my life. Little Pip and the Dash family and the hundred of thousands of people watching this different experience got me through those rough weeks. Unfortunately, the night after the last huge fight I had with my ex. I woke up the next morning to find out that Pip had passed away in the night. It was the first time that I broke down and cried for everything that had happened that year. Found out later that Ostrich hatchings are the hardest to grow into fully grown adults. Pip passed away from a unabsorbed yolk sac. 

Dash didn’t give up though! They obtained three more eggs. Skippy, Popcorn and Rascal. All were born successfully, unfortunately, again…Skippy passed away within a couple of weeks from an infection in her intestines. Rascal had to be put down since he was born with a disfigured leg that would have gotten worse over time(and believe me when I say that they tried everything!). Popcorn survived through all of that and the Dash family were visiting Ostrich wranglers to take Popcorn in and then he was attacked by raccoons and had to be put down the night before. 

Although I know how depressing they might all sound and believe me I stopped watching the live web stream after a while. The experience has been extremely positive. It was incredibly interesting to see and find how hard it is to raise ‘birds’. It is not something that is easy and especially with Ostriches, can be extremely heart-breaking. When you lose so many little babies! One of the most positive experiences from this though, were all of the people involved. Everyone who watched, supported Dash and his family and went through grief with them when they experienced lost. I have purchased an Ostrich figurine to remember all of these different experiences and to remember what it all meant to me.

Last night was the last night before the web cam and chat was stopped. We talked for hours and it was hard to sign off for that last time. I went back on the site this morning to double check that it was gone…and felt a sadness to see that it had. It was probably the more interesting and one of the rare positive experiences that I had of 2013 and will cherish it always.
