Share Your World – 05-11-2020
- I asked this on an award thingie I was nominated for, and I got such interesting responses, I thought I’d ask it on Share Your World too: Do you have a favorite kind of tree?
I guess the best I come closest to a favourite tree, is that any tree that is huge. There is something truly magnificent about a huge tree. Like a giant Sequoia, or a huge Fir or a Conifer. They remind me of Ents, or possibly a front door to an underground castle.
- What bridges are you happy you burned?
Oh, SO many! Usually there’s a pretty good reason I burnt a bridge. Honestly, I don’t think that there is a burnt bridged that I would ever rebuild for. I have no problem with accepting an apology, but it doesn’t mean I have to be their friend.
- Would you sacrifice yourself (die) for a stranger?
It depends on the stranger, if it’s a kid, of course. If it’s a Trump, nope.
- How have your priorities changed since the C-19 virus took over?
I have been looking at employment a little differently. I don’t want something casual, I want something permanent, and I would love it to be permanent part-time. My ultimate dream would be to work from home. But you need money to set up that up. Hence, why I’d love to work part-time. So I can to work, get some money together and still get out of the house. Having something permanent as well, would mean, if a business at home didn’t work out. I can still contribute.
Honestly, I would love to own “New Age” store, the ones I visit. The atmosphere is awesome, but there are none near to me. I don’t have the money to start my own business. I could see myself in a New Age store. I actually kind of was in one once, and I was really good at it. Unfortunately I did not know, the person running the store was actually trying to defraud the Government, too get more money. So when I started to tell our Australian welfare system that I was making money, that I was working. I was fired. We were getting cash in hand, I was only working once a week and I was making like $250 a day. I think it was because my friend, was jealous that I was the newcomer and I was doing way better than her. She’d make like a $100 a day. So when they asked me did no one tell you not to report it to Centrelink, she (my now ex friend) turned around and said “I told her”…She didn’t.
Please feel free to share your gratitude! During this troubling time, some positive input is sorely needed, so any memes, stories, photos, or anything else you find uplifting is welcome! Please share! Thanks!
What I have seen though, that is something to be very grateful. Most people have become kinder, a lot more people seem to be more comfortable reaching out for help. It’s almost like because everyone is pretty much in the same boat, people feel more easier to reach for the help. I am hoping that it will last once this is all over with.
Yes…I am stealing Taylor Swift songs title. I feel she brought out a simple, but easy song. By easy, I mean the message is so simple and it’s so true.
I was inspired to write this post when all across the news type board…So and so received backlash, this person received backlash, so did this one and this one as well. I miss the days where it was about good things. Where people were sensible with most things. I do blame social media. I take responsibility for this myself as well. I will also be the first to admit that it can get really tiring. Too the point you do want to turn the whole world and hug your furbabies. Which is okay to a point. If you’re giving yourself a mental attack, it’s time to officially stop for a bit.
For those who have just joined, I usually do my “Lolsy’s Libraries Lessons of Life” in a picture quote, but something just tickled my funny bone and it wasn’t going to fit in a picture quote.
One of the things (I think I may have written about it before) I find really funny about people are the people who constantly have to talk about what they hate. You know, when a article is put anywhere, Facebook, general news sites…That sort of thing and people have this almost, need, to comment either about the journalism sucks or is this really news?
Why they make me laugh so much, it’s because do they not get, that they are creating “traffic” for that site. Every time they look at a page, every time they comment, every time they like a comment, whether that be their own or someone else’s. These page DO NOT CARE if you don’t like the new article or not, they do not care if you like the journalism or not, chances are they aren’t even reading your comments. If you giving these journalist traffic on their articles, they will be kept on and they will keep reporting.
A couple of things I can suggest if you honestly want to see less of these articles popping up in your feed. Unfollow everything, don’t go on the pages that you don’t want too (which seems like common sense…but you know people and common sense these days). On Facebook and the news article on there you can select to not see particular articles. I don’t see anything about certain reality tv families anymore etc.
You can literally take this sort of stuff out of your life, if you REALLY want too. If you don’t, maybe you should ask yourself why,lol
So I was having an argument with someone that was hating on a celebrity and that was the really odd thing to me. I feel really sorry for celebrities sometimes, they just cannot win. They get told to shut up and who cares about the opinions of a celebrity, but then if they say nothing either they are considered “problematic”…Now I know this may come as a shock to some…
We own no one and maybe some things to some people are just private…No celebrity on this earth is obligated to speak or not to speak.
It also made me start thinking about how weird some people hating on a celebrity. I actually think it’s weird to hate on a celebrity than to like one, or have a crush on one. By “hate” I don’t mean you just dislike the person, but you actively try to destroy that persons career, or for every single positive comments towards a celebrity, they have to make a negative or demeaning comment…Usually towards another stranger,
How is it a normal thing to actively hate on people you don’t know? Don’t these people have anything better to do? Doesn’t your world have enough problems?
Celebrities are their own people and just like you and me they have things they like to keep to themselves and it’s personal for them and that’s fine.
In a time that is just so uncertain and every day something worse seems to happen, it’s even more important than ever to be truly true to who we are. Someone made a really good point as well. Instead of focusing SO much on the celebrity that wont talk about the issue you care about, why don’t you use that energy for YOU talk about the cause YOU care about, instead of ignoring it and focusing on somebody else. Generally, most of the time, someone you don’t even know.
If you care, then you talk about that. Don’t worry or stress about someone who doesn’t even know you and what they’re doing. This is your life and do you really want it to be about how you complained about what you thought someone else should be doing with their life? Is that what you really want to be remembered for?
