Share Your World – 7-10-19

QUESTIONS:

Social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat) a good thing, a bad thing or a mixture of both?

It’s a mixture of both. Some days I can be on it and be fine and just interact with people that I care about. Then there are other days when I can’t stand the stupidity, even if it’s with the people I care about,lol. The best thing it keeps you in contact with people you care about, and most of the time for free.

Are you camera shy or do you pose for the camera with confidence?

I don’t mind taking pictures of myself, but I’m shy taking them with other people. I’m an introvert, so I feel comfortable taking pictures of myself more because I’m comfortable around myself,lol. A lot of people that I know are extroverts, so a lot of the times they want to make sure they look good. Doesn’t happen so much anymore,lol. But most people I hang around with now only ever take a group photo. So it’s not as big as a deal.

Is there anything you’ve kept from younger years for sentimental reasons alone?

I’ve kept quiet a few thing. I tend to keep things a lot. Not like a hoarder. For example, I’ve stopped buying plush toys, because I’ve got so many from my childhood that I’ve held onto. But if for some reason I get rid of it. Like one of my nieces really liked one of them, so I gave them to her. I feel like that gives me permission to get another one,lol. I also recently went through and chucked out a whole bunch of pictures and presents from my ex-friends. I did keep letters though, and any presents that I actually use, because why should I have to get rid of them? I’ve kept the letters too because there are memories from high school and other things I achieved in them.

Do you like to decorate for different holidays?

Yes…yes I do. Every year I have to convince my partner to decorate for Christmas. This year I’ll have to do it again because we’re going to visit his family, so he never thinks there’s any reason to when we wont be in the house on Christmas Day. I’ll probably just do it anyway,lol

GRATITUDE 

Do you feel you’re a strong person character-wise?   Also, if you do have a gratitude thought or picture you’d like to share, please feel free!   The world can always use more positive vibes!

I feel like sometimes I’m not and then other days that I am,lol.

Have you all seen this amazing new show…Well, I say “new” it’s actually just about to end it’s second series, but it’s only come out this year. It’s freaking sadly amazing.

I don’t normally write a review, I don’t honestly think that I am any good at it. But I really wanted to write something for this one. I think it’s honestly one of the best new shows out there. Everything about, even the concept is something I don’t think I’ve ever heard about before. I definitely did not know about ballrooms and “posing” until the series. I thought I knew a lot about when A.I.Ds and HIV when I first heard about and started to look into it. I was still quiet young when the epidemic hit peak, being only born in 1984. I’m not even really sure that I knew what those words even meant until I got to high school, late 90’s.

I possibly have written about this show before.

It’s a television series about New York City’s African-American and Latino LGBT. The characters compete for trophies and recognition in this underground culture, and who support one another in a network of chosen families known as Houses. It also takes place around the time where AIDS and H.I.V are starting to become an epidemic. It confronts the real life issues of the bigotry around this time. By the second season most of the main characters in the show are either HIV-positive or living with AIDS.

What I love is that although being sad and being some reality of the situation to life. Its mostly about the family you choose.

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.
