I was just thinking, and was just wondering with you too. I received a letter today asking me to donate towards Koalas’. They’ve had a rough road of it lately, and they were asking for $100. Which too me, is a lot. I love animals and I can’t afford $100 right now. They also gave us a magnet =/ Which made me feel worse!
That’s when I thought to myself though, if I had unlimited funds I would give them $100 and more! I would help so many animals. We have so many ads here advertising for helps for animal charities. I hate them, mainly because I am sure that anyone who could help, would. I hate to be reminded how I can’t help.
So, if you had unlimited funds. Who would you help, that you wished you could?
My Mum and I were talking about this (my mum and I have some interesting random conversations). Someone that we both know posted a post on Facebook that said “Happy Easter”…but is it really?
Easter Friday, especially since it’s the day that they put Jesus on the cross? Hence, why we have delicious hot cross buns…Sorry, I can’t help it, I love hot cross buns.
We were talking about how it’s interesting how some people will say Happy Easter or Happy Anzac Day or how some get really offended by the term “Happy Holidays”. Usually the same people that say Happy Easter are the ones usually offended by Happy Holidays.
When do you think it’s appropriate to say “Happy…”?
Not sure why, but I feel like this totally random thought I had was relevant to the current situation. I’m not going to explain it, I’m just going to let you make your own interpretations.
Anyone else notice this too?
Misogynist* Check out that link >.<
(Although, as someone pointed out to me, that people who are looking for their natural parents. May not agree with this…You get the general idea though =P…This random thought came about when someone asked me if I missed my ex-friends and I explained why I didn’t…Realising they hadn’t really ever been there for me, pretty much ever. It’s not hard to miss someone who was never there for you to being with!)
I have seen some really gorgeous candles lately…I kid you not though, the candle itself is around $14…The postage…$70! I am NOT even kidding…$70! What is the packaging made out of…Gold? These candles were not even in glass, just a plastic container.
There is a market here I swear! Especially for Aussies! Most of the companies were in the US…I’ve always had a rule, unless special circumstance pertains…
Do not buy anything online where the postage is more than the item!
Does anyone else feel like we just need to restart with all the politicians? I know there are some good ones out there, but they are so few and far inbetween! Just get rid of them all and start again. Every time they do something good…They take 5 steps backwards again.
Land of Confusion – Daily Prompt
My life IS a land of confusion, I rarely feel like I fit in, whatever I do never seems right. It’s never good enough. My mind is a constant land of confusion, whenever I think I’ve gotten it, I haven’t. Sometimes I used to feel really let down and out of it, and now, as I’ve gotten older, it’s mattering too me less and less. Sometimes I look at what is happening in the world and the prioritises and I think “Am I the only one who thinks this is lame?”
I always used to say that I was born in the wrong age, the wrong era, the wrong decade. I feel like this more and more each day.
Burn Daily Post – One Word Prompt
I’m just going to go with this…
Let It Burn
Let those feelings burn,
Let them burn to a cinder,
till there is nothing but ash,
not even a light ember, threatening to burn you all over again.
Let them cool off,
Do nothing to relight the flame,
Grab tightly, let it burn,
Burn away all hopes,
Burn away all dreams,
Burn away all feelings,
BURN IT ALL!
I am going to start by saying I am not going to start “bashing” the parents, nor am I going to start bashing the Zoo and the keepers for the choices they made.
I will say this IS however a tragedy.
I’ve been thinking about this tragedy for the last couple of days instead of having a knee-jerk reaction or start talking about “Well, Gorilla’s do this”…I LOVE animals, even the really freaky ones…But we don’t know them, they do unusual and extraordinary things all the time. It’d be great to have them out in the wild, twenty four seven, but that’s not realistic, some Zoo’s have great breeding and conservation programs.
Yes, some Zoo’s are horrible, because lets face it, something run by human beings is not going to go 100% perfect all the time. Once we as humans can stop endangering animals then they can be safe running around where and when ever they want too. What are all these people who say Zoos should be shut down going to do with the animals if the Zoo’s are shut down? Are they going to take them in? I doubt it.
