Read, people!

*This happened a few days ago, I just thought other things were more important to blog about*

So, I got attacked again…by someone I thought I was the on the same page…again.

Seems to mainly happen on Twitter

A few months ago, I was attacked by the Twitter account “Oh She Twint”…I swear, it was simply because she was attacking my friend who was saying to her, to take to the streets. Vote, but also get out and do something, don’t take, just to twitter. She called my friend and I, retarded and blocked us.

If she had taken an actual breathe, and actually READ what we were writing…Maybe she wouldn’t be so emotional.

It just happened again. Now I follow Stormy Daniels on Twitter, mainly on Twitter because I absolutely adore her come backs to Trump supporters. This time I also quipped back at a Trump supporters “Trump hired Stormy Daniels, what does that say about him?”. Then I got a whole barrage of “Lay off her, she’s not a prostitute, she’s a porn star”. So I said to the comment about not being hired, I said “why would you sleep with a married man, who just had a baby FOR FREE!” Then I got even more attacked, because apparently in Stormy’s book. She writes about how she felt cornered by Trump to have sex with him.

Now, if Stormy or any of her supporters had actually read what I wrote. I clearly had NO idea that that’d had happen! As I mentioned above I only follow her because of her quips on Twitter. I don’t think the people who were mad that they thought I was calling  her a prostitute, which I was not, knew either. I did apologise for not knowing (???) I also pointed out that, no one, including herself brought this up, until about 10 attacks in. That if they READ my comments at all, I clearly did not know and neither do the people who replied to me. That they were attacking someone on their side too,lol. Neither did the people who liked my comments.

So, on Twitter…I know about 5 people, maybe not even that, personally on Twitter. So basically 98% of the people I follow on Twitter…I DON’T KNOW…I haven’t read Stormy’s books, or watched any of her interviews, because I never felt the need too. She doesn’t like Trump, she’s got good come backs…I know about the mushroom reference…That’s it.

So to all the celebrities and twitter “celebrities” WE DON’T ACTUALLY KNOW YOU! If I had known, I would never have said that in a million years! Just like, if I had known that “Oh no she twin’t” would call myself and my friend, retarded, for saying vote AND get out there…I would never have followed her to begin with!lol

I think it was just weird as well, because I clearly was having a go at the Trump supporter and somehow I was more attacked than them? What has also been interesting, despite being told this by Stormy herself, and now I know. It’s clear that a lot of people don’t know. Every-time I see a picture of collection of women, who have accused Trump of assault or rape. Stormy is never in those pictures. Because I am more aware, I always look and she’s never in the group. There are heaps of other porn stars, but not her.

Did you?

I finally met my Goodreads Reading Challenge!

If you follow my Goodreads page (here) you’ll see that I have been stuck on the same page of the same book for a while now. I’ve lost it…eep! It’s a Library book as well and I renewed it yesterday, but it’s the last time that I can. So I’m going to be looking for it extra hard this week.

Goodreads – Lolsy’s Library

You are never too old, or too young!

Goodreads – Can you be “too old” for YA?

Of course, one is never too old or to young to really read and enjoy a particular genre. In fact sometimes I believe that it can be particularly enjoyable when you are older to read young adult. Mainly because I believe it takes you back to a younger age. In fact, I am sure that “older” readers probably can relate it Young Adult even more than actual Young Adults. Mainly because we “young adults” wish we could live a life like this, in that moment. Yet, older readers have already lived it.

It’s not like it’s my weird crush on Shawn Mendez,lol.

Kind of reminds me of Elvis a little.

But older people reading Young Adults, there’s nothing wrong about that. Books, of all genres, are for everything. They are there for everyone to read. Even children’s books! I’ve seen/read a lot of books that are for children, that have great messages for adults as well.

 

 

 

 

Read and Listen.

This post may not go exactly what you might suspect it’s going to. This is about people who react…mostly over react to people. People who are over reacting instead of reading and thinking first. People who read a paper and suddenly are experts. You know the type, people who read a paper that’s 100% for them and not reading one that disagrees.

This has a lot to do with vaccinations, but I feel it can be applied to a lot in life. I am for vaccinations, but I am not for pro-vaccinators *not a word* who become belligerent towards people who aren’t even saying no vaccinations. There is someone I follow on Instagram who had a reaction to a vaccination and now has a chronic illness. She knows how rare this is. She has never EVER said don’t get vaccinated, but she gets literally vile comments because she says “research” first…And I think she’s right. The other people who have gotten chronic illnesses say so too.

Quiet frankly I’m going to listen to them over someone who read a paper saying they’re wrong.

I’m a Librarian…I can guarantee there’s a paper saying that it can happen. I have actually seen them myself. Because I also believe that Pharmacies and Drug companies are more about money than people’s actual well-being.

As was the case in Ireland and a lot of Europe:

Narcolepsy link to glaxo vaccine poses challenge of fda

Now this happened because people aka the Government and Drug companies tried to push this vaccine quickly without much research. The reason for this particular vaccine/drug was to help people with the “bird flu”. Now parents are suing the Government, because the Government will not help these parents and families out.

I’m all for vaccinations and I will get any future children theirs as well. Just because though someone tells me to do research (which you really should be doing for nearly all things in life). Does not make them anti…If that makes sense? In fact this person I follow actually pointed out that a)She’s has never actually said to not get them and b)Why people are assuming she still doesn’t get them herself? Which is a good point. That’s why sometimes take a deep breath, and read what your reading. I honestly believe that people don’t read anymore. They pick out keywords they WANT to read and go from there. The job that I’m in, I’ve learnt to read (I always have) but as time as gone on where I work. It’s becoming more obvious how little people read.

I actually had an incident this morning, where a student came in on the wrong day for an entrance type test. The email said Thursday the 6th, but they said the person on the phone said the 6th of Friday, so that’s why they missed the test. So, even though three of out the four things were about 6th (which is the Thursday) they blamed someone else for saying Friday, even though the person on the phone said the 6th too.

This Week’s Questions:

  1. Was the last thing you read digital or print? I’m actually reading two things at the moment. One is a biography by Leonard Nimoy called “I Am Spock”. The first bio that I’ve enjoyed in a while. The second is Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare, I was so excited for this one and I am really struggling with it.
  2. Are you more an extrovert or introvert? Oh definitely an Introvert, probably why I enjoy Blogging so much. Once you get to know me I am more of an extrovert, but not by much. Introvert by heart, always.
  3. How is your life different from what you imagined as a younger person? I thought I’d be married by now with children. Steady job, with a house. I can’t remember or not if I thought that I was going to be married to a “Prince William” type or not. I’ve been thinking about a lot of things lately. I do not want to be a 50 year old first time mother.
  4. Do you think about dying?   Does death scare you?  Why or why not? This is a loaded question! I have actually been thinking about it a lot lately. Like the question it’s just something that keeps coming up again and again. It does and doesn’t scare me, I’m scared about how I’m going to go. Will I have something horrible and long winded, will I be alone, or will I have family and loved ones around? I’m not religious, but I think I will see loved ones on the other side. I’ve told my partner that I’m going first though,lol

GRATITUDE:

I found this interesting challenge and did it myself.  I’m offering these questions as a gratitude challenge for those who care to do it.    You can answer in text or photo. (I’ll be sharing these in a different post)

Trumpter Logic 21

Trump – I am completely exonerated

Barr: “The Special Counsel states that ‘while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.’”

Trump supporters – HE’S COMPLETELY VINDICATED!

Barr: “The Special Counsel states that ‘while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.’”

Me: Do these people know how to read…at all?

The Heart Cries

I could not believe what I was seeing and reading.

These families being tear gassed, the pictures of those children crying.

I had to sign off on Twitter yesterday…All these MAGA “Christians” How can they SEE these pictures of children running from the tear gas and say such horrible things? HOW! I get the delusion…How can they say the children deserve this? The parents are using them for shields? They knew they were coming! How are the parents supposed to know they were going to get tear gassed! Who’d think America would do that?

Thank you:

Thank you SO much to Victorious Pages for nominating myself. I really enjoyed doing this one, especially when I went and found out what my Patronus is. Please go and check them out!

My Questions: 

  • What’s your Patronus?

I did the actual test for this… https://my.pottermore.com/patronus … Mine is a tiger =D I have no idea what that actually means though.

  • Which is the best and which the worst book you’ve read so far in 2018?

The best book that I have read so far has to be Circe. It kept me hooked and entertained, I read it within a week. I just sat and read it. The worst has to be, unfortunately, “The Secret Adversary” by Agatha Christie. As beautifully written as it was, I just couldn’t stand the two main characters, I felt like I made no connection with them at all.

  • You find a genie that can grant you three bookish wishes. Which three do you choose?
    1. That I can step into the book that I’m reading. 2. That every book I read, inspires me in some way so I finish all the books! 3. Too stop people from interrupting me when I’m reading a book!
  • Kiss, Marry, Kill: choosing from your latest read, which character you’d kiss, which one you’d marry and which one you’d kill?

So the most recent book I read was “Circe” by Madeline Miller, and it was fantastic!
Kiss) Would be Circe, it’d be an interesting experience I think to kiss a “Goddess”/Titan. Marry) I would Marry Odysseus son as well! Telemachus, what a man, what a man, what a mighty fine man!
Kill)
All of Circe’s family, I am not even kidding, they are horrible!

  • Which movie/tv series turned out to be better than the book?

Hmmm, this is a tough one because there are a couple of movies that I think are just as good as the book. I’ve noticed that tv series don’t tend to do as well as movies though. That may just be me more though. Lord of the Rings, for example, I LOVE the movie. I think though that Peter Jackson did such epic work. It might actually be the only one I like more than the books, but only because they are so long!

  • Would you ever consider creating your own YouTube channel? If yes, would you stop blogging?

I do enjoy making videos, I think though if I started a set YouTube channel. I’d still continue blogging because I enjoy Blogging just a little bit more.

  • Of all the bookish subscription services that exist out there, which one is your favourite and why?

I have bought a couple of Fairy Loots subscription boxes. I tend to find that subscriptions boxes are such a hit and miss, no matter what the subscription box is about. If I could find out in advance, I’d probably buy more.

  • Most anticipated read for the upcoming months of 2018?

All the books that I cannot wait to read are all coming out just before Christmas. All of them! The new books by Cassandra Clare “Queen of Air and Darkness”, a new one by Jodi Picoult. I have already told people these will be on my Christmas list this year! I am so excited for Christmas this year, I had better get them!lol

  • Would you ever try writing a book? If yes, what genre?

I actually am writing right now, I have been writing it on and off for about three or two years. I don’t think it’s even a quarter of the way through. I do it completely for pleasure as well. I tend to write it when I’m by myself, at night and I drink. I love listening to Celtic music while I write. It’s all based on a PSP game I played years ago.

  • If you could live in any fictional universe, which would you choose, and why?

Middle Earth – Tolkiens World. What I’d do to live there!

  • Have you reached your Goodreads goal yet?

I have not reached my Goal yet, but I am ahead and I have three books going as I write this. I think I am going to be able to meet it pretty well.

  1. What two characters do you ship, why and do they even come from the same books?

The Secret Adversary

First Impressions

As I start to read this book, I can’t help but admit a tinge of sadness when I realise that this book has neither Poirot or Miss Marple in it. However, I do feel as though I do actually know the characters Tommy and Tuppence. I have also realised that there is actually a tv series called “Partners in Crime” which are based on Tommy and Tuppence. I am sad though that this is not a Poirot or Miss Marple book though.

The book itself is beautifully written, it’s so full of what you expect of Agatha Christie, a completely peppy character and a sullen figure. As well as “totally did not see that coming”.

Negative Impressions:

I think my negative impressions of this book are all on myself entirely. When I realised that neither Miss Marple of Poirot were in this book, it honestly did put me off a little. It made it more difficult for myself to read, because I wasn’t really interested in these two characters. There was  nothing wrong with the characters, just that for myself. I was just not interested in it.

Next book:

“The Body in the Library”
