So, who does? Apparently it’s the public that do. What happens though, when the media decides that the public are wrong and wont listen to them? A question was asked by, I don’t think she’s even a Journalist actually, but she’s a Executive Director in Australia for Change Org you know that Organisation whose apparently for the voiceless?
She asked the question “Do people know understand what a journalists job is too do”?
Now, the reason why this was such a condescending question. Is because Australian journalists, decided that they needed to protect a particular female journalist, who had done a VERY stupid. So according to Sally Rugg, and the rest of Australian’s journalism and media personalities. What journalists do “do” is:
Journalists, target ONE Premier, not others, and not in their own states. Fly Interstate to question said Premier, because she can’t take a hint, under the guise she was there for a friends birthday. Especially since that Journalist has been targeting that ONE Premier, not even in her own state, for months. Never attending her own states press conferences about the virus. Just to ask the SAME questions, that not only has Peta Credlin (think Fox News) asked. But the same questions that have been asked for 12 + months by Victorian journalists. Didn’t I mention this journalist has never ONCE attended her own states premiers press conferences. Which would appear to be odd, no? Especially since that state had a huge cluster around Christmas time, and no one was told where it started from, you know vital information.
And then there’s this…
I don’t know if I wrote about this previously, but the BBC said that they will fire members of staff who turn up to Pride and BLM, even on their days off, as they don’t want to appear biased. Then they keep doing shows about trans people, without actually talking to a trans people. This is their response to the many complaints.
What is the POINT of getting rid of Murdoch, when the people who are paid by the tax payers to broadcast non-Murdoch “stuff”. Are doing the exact same things that Murdoch does.
Technically it is now my birthday in Adelaide, Australia. I think everywhere else it’s nearly my birthday. As I think that the majority of my readers are from the UK and the US. I stole this from “View from the Back“. Who was asked to do it by “Mrs Suvi’s Blog“. All the way back in November last year! Please go and check out both these blogs, they are fantastic writers! I always think these kind of things to do are fun to do them on Birthdays. Get to know myself a little better and I get to see if anything has changed in the past year.
Your most memorable fancy dress costume?
I’d have to say that it was for my own 30th birthday party. I LOVE to dress up, I always wanted to be an actor. With my 30th birthday party, I decided to give a twist on the Moulin Rouge, and called it “Fantasy Rogue”. Too, dress-up as your favourite character from anywhere, but put a Moulin Rouge theme on it. This was my costume.
Which social media platform do you use the most?
Oh it definitely differs, if you follow me on Twitter, Facebook or Insta. You’ll see me make posts saying I have to stay off for a few days. I do, but since I do it with all my platforms, I don’t think think there’s a single one that I’m on the most.
Without a doubt, it’d have to be Spring, without a doubt. It’s always after Winter, so it’s the first time you see sun again and sunlight again. It starts to feel warm, Spring is about new life. It’s warm, but it’s not overly hot. Everybody wants to go out. Here in Australia, our Spring is JUST before Christmas.
If you had to choose the beach or mountains, which would it be?
I have always loved both of these. Mountains give me the inspiration to write and Beaches give me the inspiration to relax, so it’s very hard for me to choose.
What can you play very well?
Does “The Sims” count?
What kind of cheese do you like?
Oh, I LOVE Swiss cheese. Like the ones from the brand of Jarlsberg.
I would love to run a SUCCESSFUL online business, so I can get out, help provide for my family. During this time in the time of the virus, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I can do. Problem is, you need money and a really good idea that will catch onto the public to have this happened. I was thinking of doing drawing, since I have a big imagination and I am constantly spending money for other people to draw my ideas. Why not start doing it myself?
I also need to believe in myself more,lol.
How many cities have you lived in?
2…I have lived in Adelaide, South Australia my whole life. The other place was Arizona in America, that was mainly though because I had a long…VERY long distance relationship. You know those people who travel to America on a visiting visa, and then never come back? That could have been me, but I’m a good girl.
What language do you wish you could speak?
I do wish that I could speak Spanish. It’s always a language I have loved listening too. I make fun of the French accent. I love the Irish accent, but that’s not really a different language. I do wish I could speak Gaelic too though.
What can’t you stand?
I’ve realised over the years, that I can’t stand people who harm animals and children, especially if it’s malicious and cruel.
If you have an hour to kill on your hands, what would you do?
I am probably reading, or possibly playing a game. I might go through some of my blogs, make sure they are up to date. I might even bake something like cookies, or a cake.
Your favourite routine?
My favourite routine, is surprisingly enough, to clean. I really enjoy spending having a day to just clean. I find that sometimes, I have to do different things on different days. But I just love having a day where I can just…not sit,lol…But get up and just clean the whole house, wash all the clothes, make sure the dishes are washed. All on the same day.
When do you become hyperactive?
I think after I’ve had a any kind of raspberry soft drink. Yes, I am now 36 and I still love to drink raspberry soft drink.
Text message or phone call?
Oh, text message. The only time I will ring is if I need some things clarify and/or texting will take far too long.
Your most precious treasure.
I treasure people more than things, but in all honesty my most precious treasure are these two: My Mufasa and Sarabi. Mufasa I’ve had since I was about 12-13, Sarabi about a week now,lol. I’ve been looking for a Sarabi since I had gotten Mufasa, but had no idea until recently that Disney actually sold this plush one. Which she is the perfect size to my Mufasa! They are perfect sizes for cuddling and you can rest your head on their backs and read.
Your latest foreign language mistake.
I’m not sure if I have made any lately? I constantly though have to reread people’s comments though, where it’s obvious English is their second language. So I like try to read their comment a couple of times before I reply.
What’s the best therapy for you?
Reading, gaming, just heading for a walk, or even just walking around the shops. Not actually buying anything, just wandering. That also depends though what the weather is like, I hate going for a walk in Winter.
If you could be a fictional character, who would you be?
Whenever I really enjoy a book, tv show or movies. I always imagine a character that I could be, that I feel could fit into the fiction. So for example, Lord of the Rings. I have imagined several times being a Sorceress that travels with the fellowship. Even though Pippen is my favourite character in the movie, I fancy the pants off of Legolas/Orlando Bloom. So I always imagined that my character was a love interest, but elves and sorceresses don’t like each other. My character’s mothers wasn’t just a sorceress, but she was also the Dark Queen who served with Sauron. My character also can’t use her magic, otherwise she may turn dark, so she’s skilled in swords and bows. She was also taught by Beorn, how to work and talk with animals, and she was given to Beorn from the Ents. Who couldn’t keep up with her upbringing. Her mother feared her child would be persecuted by elves, by men and by Sauron himself, so she hid her child with the Ents.
I wont go into more details, because it’s starts to get interesting with her in the Hobbit. But it’d bore you all,lol.
The movie came out in 2001, I’ve had a LOT of time to think about it.
Where would you like to travel?
I would love to see Greece, Rome and Ireland. Ireland, my ancestries is there. Greece, Rome and Egypt, I would love to see all the ancient buildings and works in the flesh. I could never go inside a Pyramid though! Now, with my anxieties I am scared of travelling there, but I would get any medication to knock myself out with.
Where did you meet your spouse/partner?
We met through a online dating site. I had been dared by my mum to do it, after my last breakup. Normally I spend about 6 months to a year being single after a breakup. Even when I was fine with the breakup. I was dared about a month after my last breakup, we met up a month after that, and have been together ever since.
What’s the closest thing you’ve experienced to real magic?
I honestly, this is going to sound SO lame. I think seeing baby animals, any kind honestly, is magical. Even spiders and reptiles…Except for maggots. Baby animals are so magical. I could watch them for hours. I was actually nearly late for work the other day because as I walked to to work, I stopped and filmed some new baby duckling.
Who is the messiest person you know? And why?
Honestly? It’d have to be between my partner and myself. I know, it’s terrible! We are actually getting better. That’s mainly because though the cat is sick, so we don’t want to leave him in a messy house all day. With it being so warm lately too, it’s not fair to leave him in a stinky warm house. My partner would probably say it’s me, but it’s both of us really.
If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask?
Is there a way to stop people from believing and supporting Donald Trump?
What benefits does art provide society? Does art hurt society in any way?
I think it just depends on the Art and the Society, it’s trying to provide. Take the Covington Boys situation. You have young teenagers who are wearing red hats that have no healing proprieties what so ever. Thinking that somehow Nathan Phillips banging a drum is supposed to be him intimidating them? Yet everyone who knows, knows that Phillips was banging a healing drum and chanting a healing chant. It’s the same situation with Art. The people who get it, will get it and there will always be those that don’t and those that do.
What’s something positive you’d like to share? Can be a smile, a joke, or music..anything that gave you a lift this week!
Honestly, it’s been the support of the others who hate Trump as much as we all seem too,lol…This week has seemingly been particularly rough.
Considering I am always genuinely shocked whenever I get one reader following me. 800 is amazing! That’s a lot for myself! It makes me feel like
Be cool Lolsy, Be Cool…
Thank you all who started to read my Blog! You’ve made this girl very happy =D
I wrote a post a couple of weeks back saying that if I could get close to 1000 near the end of the year, that I would do a give away. I am still going to do that. In fact, I’ve already gotten a couple of things for it…So watch this space for me! 4 month until Christmas! I think if it keeps going the way it’s going…I can see getting to the 1000 readers by the end of the year. That would be really fantastic!
I just have to find a way to do the giveaway! Does anyone know how to set one up on WordPress?
Thank you so much Life Lessons from Around the Dinner Table. I really enjoyed writing this. It really made me think and I really enjoyed writing up. Please everyone check her out!
What do you think are the 5 most beautiful things in the world? Why? a) Peace, pure true peace. When you see it on someone else’s face, or even when you see an animal at peace when they are finally free. b) When a young baby smiles, and you know it’s genuine smile. c) That moment when the sun is rising and it’s just starting to rise on the horizon. d) I don’t know why but the smell of my dog makes me happy. When she wakes up with me she has the smell and she’s so cute. I love just waking up with her and that’s what makes her beautiful. Whereas my partners cat uses his claws, on my face to wake me up, not so beautiful,lol e)When you go for a walk and everything is just beautiful. The setting is perfect, the weather is perfect. Even your ipod is playing the perfect music.
What impression do you think you give when you first meet someone?
I am honestly not really sure. I think a lot of that depends on where I am. Hopefully at work I give a first impression that I know what I’m doing. I definitely know that no matter where I go, people always think I’m friendly. I definitely must give an impression of being open though, because people walk up constantly have conversations with me. Especially “older” people.
What one responsibility do you most wish you didn’t have?
Vacuuming. I always offer to do it. Mainly because my hair is so long and thick it falls out everywhere! I shed more than my dog and cat’s hair combined! I hate vacuuming though, it hurts my back and the vacuum cleaner and the carpet are really tough to vacuum.
What is your favorite subject to write about? This may sound totally “up myself” but at the moment I like writing about myself. I have spent so many years not talking about myself and it blew up in a panic attack and myself in the hospital. So I like to talk to myself a lot now,lol…However, now I am trying to focus on others in the world. They need more help than I do right now.
What would constitute a perfect day for you?
Being able to wake the day with both the kitty and doggie I love the most, without them fighting and the cat putting claws in my face,lol. A nice bowl of granola and yoghurt, reading and playing games. Probably take my doggie for a walk, because a perfect day would have the perfect weather.
For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
Just for the people I have in my life…RIGHT NOW…Right at this moment. Anyone whose reached out, anyone who I’ve been able to talk about my issues freely. Anyone whose just let me talk.
What fictional place would you most like to visit? Without any hesitation…Rivendell. I have literal dreams of going there. I watch the films straight through (if possible) twice a year.
Who do you admire most? Why?
Don’t tell anyone this. I admire a lot of people! I have to make special mention to my Gran though. She is what she calls “my person”. Not in terms of possession, but rather the person that just gets me the most. She’s always been so strong in every way possible, as she’s getting older she is losing it a little bit, she’s becoming more frightened of everything. It’s hard to watch.
Is there a book that had an impact on your life? If so, what was it?
This list would be easier if I could talk about the ones that haven’t impacted my life. I cannot honestly choose, so many are popping into my head.
Where is the most interesting place you’ve visited?
It’s actually the difference between two places. A few years ago I was in American in Arizona and then from there I went to England. The difference between the two was immediate and astounding! It was so dry in Arizona, then when I arrived in England it was just SO green!
If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
Honestly I would go to Disneyland. Apart from Egypt and Greece, I’ve wanted to go there my whole life. I feel at the moment, I’d be so happy there. I want to visit Egypt, but it’s so scary there right now. Disneyland would just make me happy. Greece, I can see myself walking around and I don’t really want to do that.Nominate 5-11 bloggers you want to give the award to.*I’m going to nominate some people, but please feel free to do this if you so wish and then just link back to myself*

11 Facts about yourself
When I am completely by myself, I can wear my pyjamas for hours…and hours!
I am such a Christmas person that I can easily buy new Christmas presents starting January. I love giving gifts!
I’m angry with myself at the moment, I’ve all these great ideas in my head, but I’m too scared to go through with any of them.
I love pineapple on pizza >.<
After my anxieties issues this year. I am now terrified of getting pregnant and giving birth. It’s a real/legitimate fear I have now. What if I have a panic attack and I kill the baby because no air or something? I’ve not been able to tell anyone about it.
I have got specific ring and message tones on my phone. So I know who trying to contact me. Mainly I have these for my work and my creepy friends,lol
I wanted to be a psychologist, and kind of still do, but I’d be so bad! I’d start crying with them, I wouldn’t be able to handle what happened to them. I’d be able to listen, but after they’ve gone. It’d be destroying me.
I’ve had to stop naming animals on safari live, for myself…A lot of them just die…Especially the “prey” eg Bryans Mum.
I am possibly the worlds worst procrastinator!lol…Just over this weekend I found all this stuff I’ve been looking for but because I was walking, I wasn’t able to carry it…Still haven’t been back…but I will be!
For a 34 year old woman, I have a lot of plush toys. But they are all important too me.
I am truly sick of having anxiety,lol
Questions From In a Messy World
Tell us a dark secret about you (mwahaha)
I am sure that if someone hurt people I loved. I think I could find it within myself to kill them. The person who hurt the people that I love, not the people that I love,lol.
What would you want to invent?
I would want to invent something that would create less stress.Whatever the cause is, there is an instant solution.
What is your favourite feature of yourself?
No matter what I’m going through, I still want to be there for others. It’s not always about me, but sometimes it is! I’m learning how to take care of myself and make sure I don’t deplete myself. Learning is what I love to do!
What would you like to explore, the ocean or space?
Ironically both of those ideas make me feel claustrophobic.
What’s your favourite time of day?
Close to late afternoon. Around the time where you’re finishing work and are heading home, the suns going down, but it’s not quiet down yet. So you can still do things. Get into your comfy clothes and a nice cup of tea, before you have to start making dinner. You’re still active and willing to do things.
Harry Potter or Twilight?
Harry Potter…I cannot stand Twilight. I was able to watch the first movie/book, but after that I got so mad with it! What kind of message does it send to young girls (the main audience) to have the main protagonist, heart broken, moping around for months, and then try to kill themselves? Let alone that…yes, I am going to swear…that s%#t ending!
Harry Potter surpasses Twilight in every way possible!
Do you have any social media for your blog?
I do…You can find more information here...I have one Instagram account and a Twitter account.
What age do you want to die?
Just the same with “Messy World” there are things I’d like to do before I die and feel fulfilled. Preferably not for a while yet!lol
I have a couple of dresses that I just love and I love the long cardigan that I can wear with them during Winter. My mum doesn’t like the cardigan because it makes me look “short”…I’m already short…The funny thing is I have had a lot of compliments on it when my Mum hasn’t been around,lol
Would you rather know when someone is lying to you
or be able to lie without anyone knowing?
I would rather be able to lie without anyone knowing. I think it would devastate me if I found out someone I loved was lying to me about a big thing.
So last month I made a post called Self Love Questions. When I went to look at the link again, I realised that there were 20 questions! I decided with that I was going to make a “Part 2”! Once again, please feel free to use these for yourself!
11. Have you ever valued someone else’s opinion over your own? Why? What would that situation have looked like if you put yourself first?
Oh I always value my Mums and my Grandmothers opinions over my own…Doesn’t mean I always listen, or follow through with it…Even though sometimes I really should. I wouldn’t be who I am though without them! Sometimes when I feel like I don’t know what to do, they know me best and I can always talk to them about anything.
12. What type of person do you believe you are? What do you love about those characteristics?
Even though I’ve had some ex-friends recently go around saying I’m some horrible human being. I don’t think that I am that at all. I think I am kind person, I don’t go out of my way to hurt people. I’m pretty quiet, but stubborn when I believe it’s something important. No matter how many times and over the years I’ve believed I’ve changed. I still always get INFJ for the Myers Briggs Test.
I love being me, every day I am beginning to realise how truly lucky I am to be me and to have the people around me that I do. There are a lot of actual horrible people out there.
13. Alan Watts said, “The most dangerous risk of all is the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.” What would you do in your life if you had the world at your fingertips?
I would probably be running my own side business to be perfectly honest. Even if I had won the lottery and/or didn’t need to work anymore for whatever reason. I enjoy doing crafts and making things. I would have to be able to do it at my own pace of course. It’s something I really want to do, but I am so frightened of doing it, and I don’t even know where to start!
It’s one of the things I want to look more into this year.
14. What does forgiveness mean? What do you need to forgive yourself for? How can you love yourself through the forgiveness process?
I believe that forgiving someone for yourself is loving yourself. I need to forgive myself though for being so hard on myself. Mentally I am going through a lot right now and it can get tiring one moment to the next. There’s nothing wrong with that, there’s nothing wrong with having a moment and then to get myself back together. As long as the moments become less, or I find some other way to cope with them. That is getting stronger.
15. Being mindful means paying attention to the present moment without judgment or analysis. How can you practice mindfulness in your life? How will mindfulness help you?
Oh this is something that I am always trying to do, to be more mindful of myself and others. I think it’s just more about be aware that it’s not always about you. Not everything affects people in the exact same way.
16. Where do you want to be in a year? Focus on feeling good while you write about your dreams. Focus on feeling happy and believing your dreams can become a reality.
I would love to have at least a permanent part-time job in another Library. Even though I was treated pretty shabbily by the one that cancelled my contract (while I was sick)…and no one told me. I still would love to work in a Library at least permanently part-time. Anxiety wise I want to be handle it better without taking any drugs, probably still using Vitamins though. I personally think they have been helping me a lot. I would love to be a little more social again as well. The last 6 months or so, I’ve been not feeling up to going out so much, especially crowded places. I guess mentally I want to be stronger again, and not so tired from these pills! … Hopefully engaged too!hehe =D
17. Schedule times throughout the day when you will give yourself a pat on the back. Tell yourself how good you’re doing. Tell yourself how much you appreciate your hard work. Set alarms on your phone to remind you. At the end of the day, write down how each affirmation made you feel. Write down how each affirmation changed your mood or actions.
I think that I am going to do this for the next month…Starting from today and write about how that had gone.
18. What do you love about your life right now? Why do you love it?
I love it right now because in pretty much every single aspect of my life. Every place and everyone that was not supportive of me last year when for really the first time in my life, I actually needed support from others. They’re gone. I’m just left with the people and places that were supporting me. How can you not love that?
Can I get an AMEN!
19. What does imperfection mean to you? How can you learn to embrace imperfection in your life?
I am one of those “annoying” people. I honestly believe that everyone is perfect in their own way. We all make mistakes, we all do things we regret and I think all of us have at least one situation where we look back in hindsight. We are imperfectly perfect. The only time I think someone is imperfect is when they are cruel and horrible to other people, or if they torture animals. I just think something has to be “off” with people who do that. I can’t honestly say that I could ever embrace those sort of people.
20. Is being selfish a negative thing or a positive thing? What if you believed that being focused on your feelings could be beneficial to your wellbeing? How would your life change?
Sometimes it can be a completely necessary thing! Sometimes you absolutely have to be selfish and take care of yourself first. It’s also important to remember it’s not always about you though. It’s okay to have a “day off” from the world, we all need it to recharge so we can better help people. Just make sure you don’t always have a “day off”, if you know what I mean.
So I found these UH-MAZING questions that help you to reflect on what you deserve as an individual…I feel like I wanted to do these questions, I want to be more about the self-love this year for myself…Please feel free to do these as well!
I believe I deserve to be really happy. I feel like it’s starting to happen for me as well. I cannot control everything, but there are things I can do to make more things happen, things that are within my control. I deserve to be happy NOW…But I always did.
2. What does trust mean to me? How can I learn to trust more?
Trust to me is knowing that you can stop speaking to someone…Even in anger and know that the other person would still not tell your secrets. Doesn’t matter who it is, it can be a romantic relationship, a friendly relationship or even a work relationship.
3. There is a quote from Jack Kornfield that says, “ Like a sandcastle, all is temporary. Build it, tend it, enjoy it. And when the time comes, let it go.” What do you need to let go of in your life? How do you think you will feel once you let it go?
I need to let of not believing in myself enough. I have this terrible habit of really wanting to do something but then thinking of every single way that I could mess up, or if I’d look silly. If I’m not good enough and so it just never happens. I really NEED to let go, I feel like if I could let go of it and then my life would be so much more fulfilling.
4. The Dalai Lama once said, “Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.” When was the last time you didn’t get something you wanted, but it worked out for the better?
Very recently actually. If you’ve been reading some of my most recent blogs you’ll know that I recently lost some life long friends. It’s not the why I wanted it to go, but I can honestly say that it’s working out for the better for me. I’ve been so much more productive and I am organising a lot more things to do for myself this year already.
5. Make a list of 10 things you do to relax. How can you incorporate these things into the week ahead of you?
Read a book
Listen to “mood music” (Depends on my mood what music I listen too)
I’ll take a little longer in the shower than I should
I hug my plushies!
I have about 10 different colouring in books.
I’ll just lounge with my pets
I’ve recently just started taking walks and listening to music, it’s been great!
Online retail window shopping…Especially when I don’t buy anything!
I love to play computer games
Watching safari live, especially when there’s not hunting and we just see baby animals,lol
6. What is your favorite song? Why do you like it? How does the song make you feel? What do you think about when you listen to it?
My favourite song probably of all time is “Happy” by Pharell Williams. I cannot not be happy whenever I hear it come on. No matter the mood I will get up and dance. If I’m lying on the bed, crying, I hear that song I am up and dancing and thinking of all the good things in my life.
7. “The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson If you knew this statement were true, what would you do differently in your life? What if you could do these things every day?
I almost feel sad saying that there would be a lot I would differently, but a lot of the reasons why I can’t do what I want to do, is of course…money issues. I would do craft things to sell every day, I would probably also do computer/internet streaming a few times a weeks. There’s a lot in my life that would be different. I’ve been thinking about someone, and there’s some that I could do…I just have to watch the wallet!
8. What does love mean to you? How do you show these emotions and actions to yourself?
Love to me means that you are kind, but tough. Love doesn’t mean you just do what whatever the person you loves tells you to do. You don’t just go along with whatever, you can stand up and say when you think something is wrong. You don’t just always go with the flow. Sometimes you have to stand up and be tough.
I find this is the same when it comes to loving myself as well. I love myself, but as the general consensus we are toughest on ourselves and sometimes we have to be tough on ourselves.
It’s not about being unkind, it’s more about not wanting us and the people who we love, not to suffer anymore.
9. In what areas of your life do you show a lot of faith? Why does faith come easily to you in these circumstances?
I show a lot of faith in my family, especially my mothers side. I honestly don’t know what I would do without them! I feel and know that I am safe whenever I’m around them.
10. What would your daily habits look like if you chose to live life with an open heart?
I would probably get up at roughly 6amish, instead of 7:20am and start my day with a meditation and a glass of water. I have no idea what I’d have for breakfast, probably a banana. I’ve got a lot of cereals in my cupboard, but who eats those for breakfast!lol…I would go for a walk every day, no matter the weather. I would get to bed at 10:30pm and be asleep at 11pm. I would love to do a craft every day. Making people’s Christmas cards last year, was great! I sat there for hours, trying to make them all different. It was great and very therapeutic.
