What would you name the autobiography of your life?
Oh, this is a hard one! I’ve come up with a couple…”Life Lessons with Lolly”, “Walks with Lolly”…Something with my nickname in it.
Which do you prefer sweet, salty or buttery?
Can I have all three together?lol…It honestly depends. There is this popcorn called Johnny’s popcorn “sweet and salty”. It is SOOOOOOOO good, but the combination isn’t great on everything. If I had to chose though, I’d do with healthy sweet,lol.
What’s the finest education?
This is going to sound SO lame…Life is truly the finest education. I believe everyone should go to school, it helps gives you the basics (well they should, not all do). Of course there are specialised. Everything else we learn from our every day life to life.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
This has been a great week! Last week was so uncertain, but this week has been fantastic! I got all the things I need to start creating for my little business. The bag that I thought was gone after I tried to find it, last week, I got a call saying someone had found it. Everything was still in it!
The feud that ruined the Sex and the City movie number 3
Sometimes I am perfectly fine with things just not actually happening…I don’t know how many of you watched the other two…The first one was alright, but I felt could have been so much better. Then the second one…How were they all fine with it? Here are some of the other movies or tv series I could have lived happily without ever seeing are:
- Death Note…The American series…Why, why did that even happen?
- Riverdale…I love the comics, I used to play Veronica when my cousins, brothers and I would “play” The Archie’s. The series is alright if you don’t know about the comics. I am glad though it’s introducing a whole new generation to it.
Not everything has to happen or come to life…What about yourselves, do you have a book series or a television series or a movie, that you felt could have probably not happened and you would have been fine with that?
This or That? #97
This week Bookmark Chronicles would like to know:
How do you feel about laying books open, face down?
This is a really great question! It’s a question in the Library field that has been asked for centuries! Literally last week we were talking about this where I worked. There are a whole bunch of variations, based on the weight, how many pages, how strong the book is.
However, I try not to leave my book open any which way if possible, but if I had to chose or something else got my attention and I have to put it down and I have no bookmarks around. I am probably most likely to turn my book open and face down.
This or That? #92
This week Bookmark Chronicles (and myself) would like to know:
If you’re in the bookstore looking for a new book to read, which of these would play the biggest role in whether or not you purchase a book:
Cover ~ Description ~ Author
(must choose just one)
Too be honest what would bring me over would probably be the author or the cover and if it catches my eyes…BUT…saying that, it would be the description for me whether or not I would purchase a book. A book can be pretty and the author might possibly be a favourite of mine, but if the description doesn’t catch me or bores me for one reason or another, I am probably not going to buy it.

When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen?
I prefer pen, I will usually only use a pencil in a emergency. For example, if I’m on the phone and I need something to write with. Also if I’m writing on something that I shouldn’t be writing on, but it’s the only piece of paper around. Then I can erase it later.
Would you rather be an amazing dancer or an amazing singer?
Good question! I love to dance everywhere anyway. I think though I’d love to be an amazing singer, because I can make more a career from it. I love dancing and I was a ballet dancer for a long time, but the dancing world is SO competitive and you can only do it for so long. Unless of course something goes wrong with your vocal nodules I suppose.
If you were on a debate team, what subject would you relish debating?
Oh, probably some ancient thing. Who was to really blame for Cleopatra’s downfall…Mainly because that was my big project on my senior year and I got a really good grade for it,lol
What are you a “natural” at doing?
This is going to sound really “lame”. I am naturally at being me =D
I just wanted to say that I hope you’ve been enjoying these “Getting to know me Blogs” as much as I’ve been enjoying writing them! Here we go with the last week…
- Regularly burn incense?
I have actually been getting more into burning incense and the like. Since I developed an anxiety condition last year, just meditation and calming my mind has been helping and I’ve been really improving. Maybe “getting more into burning…” Isn’t the greatest description in the world.
- Who would you like to see in concert?
I would love to see Bruno Mars, but he’s very unlikely to come to my little town.
- Hot tea or cold tea?
Hot tea, I’m not even honestly sure that I’ve had even had cold tea. Apart from iced tea…with whip cream!
- Tea or coffee?
Oh lordy…How can one choose?! I drink both, however, in some situations I will only drink one during certain times. For example, when I’m sick or have the flu, I will only drink tea as when I’m sick, I can’t stand coffee. I don’t even drink coffee to try and stay awake, I drink coffee as treat almost.
- Sugar cookies or snickerdoodles?
I have no idea what a snickerdoodle is, so I’d have to go with sugar cookies.
- Can you swim well?
I can alright, but I’m not ready for the English channel or anything like that.
- Can you hold your breath without holding your nose?
*tries* Yes, I can! It looks less stupid than when holding it. (Ditto,lol)
- Are you patient?
It’s actually one of the things people know the most about me, how patient I can be, when most others would lose it. It’s a trick between not taking things personally and not actually caring. Especially when it comes to work and I know it’s nothing that I’ve stuffed up.
- DJ or band at a wedding?
I’d prefer a DJ just because then you can make requests for the original song, rather than someone trying to cover a song. However, I think having a band would look really classy. I’ve been to a funeral where a duo decided to dedicate a song that the deceased really like, and they sounded terrible. I felt it was so disrespectful, the person didn’t like the song because YOU sung it, they liked because the person they liked, sang it. I don’t know, it’s always felt really wrong to me.
- Ever won a contest?
No, I’ve had some luck though with my works lottery group. We sometimes win 30-40 bucks here and there…Enough for another ticket.
- Ever had plastic surgery?
No, I’m pretty okay with my body. The only thing I wish I could change is that my teeth would be a little whiter. Not stupidly blinding white, but just a little whiter. It’d also look really cool because the two herbivore teeth that are usually next to the two big ones, mine are missing, they just never grew threw. So my teeth look like vampire teeth, and I love it.
- Which are better, black or green olives?
I don’t really love Olives, I’d rather not have them…If I had to choose I’d go with the green ones.
- Can you knit or crochet?
I can’t really do either, I haven’t crochet in a while, so I’d probably have to restart and relearn.
- Best place for a fireplace?
If I could have a dream place for a fireplace, I would have it in a library type room, probably off from the main living area. In a medium sized room, so the air doesn’t get all smokey.
- Do you want to get married?
Only to the right person.
- If married, how long have you been married?
- Who was your HS crush?
Oh I had a lot…I didn’t date any of them, I was way to shy to actually ask. I had a lot though.
- Do you cry and throw a fit until you get your own way?
Umm…No, I’m not even sure I did that as a kid. Apparently I used to only throw fits when I was constrained, like when I was put into a seat belt. I hated to be constrained, still do.
- Do you have kids?
I am furbaby Aunty and step mama. My brothers dog is technically his, since he’s the whole reason he got her. Only a couple of months after we got her though, he moved to Melbourne and left her with us. My partners cat is actually his ex’s cat, but when they split up, she said to hold onto him for a year and if she didn’t come back, my partner could keep him. She wanted to travel, and his had the cat for about 3 or 4 years now.
- Do you want kids?
No right now, there’s still a lot to get settled first. I would prefer to be married first as well.
- What’s your favorite color?
The toughest question. I love Yves Saint Laurent’s Babouche yellow. Yes, I chose a nail polish color, they are ever so precise.
- Do you miss anyone right now?
Wherever I am, I always miss my mum and my dog, or if I’m with them, I miss my partner and his cat. Don’t tell anyone I said this, but if I could, I would actually live with all of them, my mum, my partner and the cat and the dog. I’d be very happy.Even though Pippy and Travie would probably kill each other. As long as it was a big enough house to give us all enough space.
- Who is your favorite author?
At the moment my favourite author is Jodi Picoult. I think I have literally every single one of her books and I would highly recommend them. Especially if you are a person that likes to look at how other people think.
- If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I actually really like the city where I live, home is where the heart is. As mentioned above though, I would just love a really huge house. Where I could live with whoever, but also enough room for visitors. Maybe somewhere near a beach. Should be easy…right?
Share Your World … Feb Week 1 2017
Regarding your fridge, is it organized or a mess inside?
It’s relatively organised, some might call it an “organised mess”. I know where everything is, isn’t that what matters?
Do you prefer your food separated or mixed together?
If I am really hungry, I just want to eat the food. Usually I don’t mind either way as long as it doesn’t make the food all soggy.
Do you prefer reading coffee table books (picture), biographies, fiction, non-fiction, educational?
It depends honestly, I like genre’s or books like Agatha Christie, but I also enjoying reading about real life crime…Well…Not “enjoy” that would be weird, but I find it intriguing.
Close your eyes. Listen to your body. What part of your body is seeking attention? What is it telling you?
At the moment it is definitely a connection between my mind and my stomach. I was suffering from a anxiety issue since last year and I was starting to get over it and I had a “bad day” a couple of weekends ago and I’m kind of having to restart again. It’s so frustrated and I’m fed up with dealing with it, but you gotta do what you gotta do. That’s the problem with the mind though, it’s hard to fight it.
Share Your World Jan 17…Week 4
*Usually I post this on a Thursday afternoon. I’ve just had so many ideas for post this week, it’s kind of just gotten to Friday instead. All should return to normal next week*
Do you prefer juice or fruit?
Oh wow, this is a good one because I really do love both of them. Especially since it’s Summer here at the moment and during Summer I hate drinking hot drinks and love drinking cold drinks like Juices. I’d probably have to go with fruit though because I can have fruit whenever and there are some pieces of fruit I have all year round. Whereas with Juice, I tend to have to be in the mood to drink it.
Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?
I grew up in a small town and kind of still down. The capital city that I live in Australia is probably the smallest of the Capital Cities in Australia. Even when I went to Melbourne…Melbourne…I managed to STILL bump into someone from South Australia and not just that…We WORK in the same building!
If you were to paint a picture of your childhood, what colors would you use?
I think it was would be very magically relaxed. So probably lot of soft colours, probably lavenders, sky blues…Just think of Fairy and Unicorn colours, but nothing harsh.
Ways to Relax List: Make a list of what relaxes you and helps you feel calm.
- Listening to Celtic music…I just go somewhere with it.
- I love to colour in, it just helps me focus.
- A nice long shower, especially if the temperature is right!
- The Sims 4…It both helps me relax, but it can also stir me up.
- I love to dress up in costumes and wigs I have around the house, it’s just fun. I never post the pictures, but I do take a lot of them,lol
Share Your World … January
Would you prefer to receive a unicycle, bicycle, tricycle or motorcycle?
I have always wanted to ride a Motorcycle, but because I am so little I feel like riding a Motorcycle would be far too powerful for me to handle. I would rather not die.
What is one thing you’d like to accomplish this year?
If you see my next answer to the below question, you can tell what one of the would be. I would like to just start getting out a bit more, stop worrying so much. I am hoping to get a better job with much better and more steady hours. I just want to be able to do more of what I feel like I missed out on last year. I’ve got techniques and exercises that I am planning on using every couple of days now, rather than just when I feel some anxiety coming on.
What was one of the highlights of 2016 for you?
2016 was a little weird for me, I had a anxiety issue come up in August and it affected everything else that’s been going on for me. That ended up causing a lot of problems for me, which I have been doing something about and I am getting better. A lot of highlights for me was just getting through an event with worrying too much, or just forgetting I even had an issue.
Would you prefer to fly a kite or fly in a hot air balloon?
I would prefer to fly in a kite, I get motion sickness. Although I don’t think that it would be too bad flying in a hot air balloon. I just would rather not take that risk, what if it’s a bad day, or there’s a sudden gust of wind?! I would rather be able to relax and flying a kite just seems more relaxing to me.
