Over the weekend…and the things I did not get

I didn’t go on Twitter, which I loved, lol. I went on once, because I got a direct message asking why I’d gone so quiet.

Before I went off there for the weekend, and mainly only going on the others to thank people for birthday wishes. I saw that Laura Ingraham tweet. And apart from the obvious, that she was a cruel person for making her mother work as a waitress to pay off her Ingraham’s loan. She admits that SOMEONE ELSE paid off her loan. So what exactly is she complaining about? She didn’t pay it off, according to herself, her mother did it. Laura has had good jobs over that time, so why wasn’t she paying it herself?

Why are people like this? I feel like I am always asking this at the moment, but honestly why are people like this?!lol Have they always been like this?

I know that bigotry and hatred can rot the brain, but really, why are people this dumb?lol

Faking it, till ya make it

Just binge watching Genius: Aretha Franklin and she’s “talking” with her sister about how you gotta spend a lot of money to look beautiful. All that “faking” it till you make it kind of stuff. They were just relaxing and stuff around a coffee table, drinking and talking. For some reason it just made me think of what do you do at home. So you rest and relax to make sure that you can recharge to “fake it till you make it”?

Oh, and also, in my state … South Australia … Some one kidnapped Big Bird … Just another day in South Australia, lol

Just relax

I think that the hardest thing to do in this world is just too truly and utterly 100% relax. The last month or so have been really hard for me, I’m living pretty much pay check to check this past month. This usually happens to me twice a year. Usually a month before the busy times at my work happens. It’s part of the reason I am looking for something more permanent.

Even though when I’m on holidays and planned ones, I will still worry…Maybe I shouldn’t have taken that week off, maybe I shouldn’t have bought that extra chocolate bar. It can get very overwhelming sometimes. Especially when I start to get upset at myself for buying that little extra treat.

I find the hardest thing to do is to my forgive myself. That’s when my head gets all messed up and I have to try and control my mind so I don’t get so upset that it gets me down all day. So I didn’t mean for this to become a kind of depressing post. I just wanted to share with you what I try to do to cheer myself up that either costs nothing or costs very little.

Books: Books are a great way to cheer myself up and a few other people too I do believe. The great thing about books is that they can actually be really cheap, and sometimes free if you know what you’re doing! Join a Library-Not only do they end up getting a lot of the newest books for you to borrow for free, a lot of Libraries will take requests for new books. A lot of Libraries also have books sales where they sell a lot of different items (not just books) at a heavily discounted price. Just recently I bought three dvds of movies I’ve been wanting for a while now for $6.00 ($2.00 each).

Walking/Dancing: I love to dance and lately I have been taking my dog for even more walks. When I go back to my Mums house, I feel like I NEED to take my dog for a walk, even though she’s little and we play a lot inside. Not only can both walking and dancing be done for free, but they both also release endorphin.

D.I.Y: I always find that over the years you tend to build up a collection of things that need to be done around the house. Now this can be expensive if you do it all in one go. Sometimes I find as well though when you think of the D.I.Y. projects that need to be done you go out and get that stuff. So over time it all builds up, including the materials you need for the project.

Series watching: Now what I mean by this is when you have a favourite television series and you just sit and watch it all day, or at least have it on in the background. Now this is a great idea for relaxing because watching or even just listening to a favourite show, has shown to relax and calm the mind down. I know myself, personally, I cannot fall asleep if I’ve watched something traumatic or some kind of horror film. One of the great things about this option is that there are so many different ways you can do this. Some retail outlet these days will have a deal, for example, 3 DVDS for only $30 (I recently did this one). Let alone the new streaming services. Which do cost a bit more money than a one-off, however, you can get great deals.

I did nearly put a bath in, to relax,…but the reason that I didn’t. It ultimately leads to your overall water bill and if you are anything like me. I usually end up staying in the bath for about 15 minutes. My partner can spend literally hours, but I just cannot do it.

That part of the weekend vs this part of the weekend

Could my title be any longer?!

Well I hope that you all had a fantastic weekend, mine was so odd!lol…I lost track of time because I worked on the weekend for the first time in my life, threw me right off! I stood up for a couple of people for them just to turn around and did something even stupider. Then there was also the friend who sent me this message about how Facebook reminded them we’ve been friends for 6 years and how we should catch up, even though it’ll probably never happen. Almost felt like they were trying to make me feel guilty about it, except they’re the ones who kept bailing, so I stopped asking,lol

Despite all of that though I actually had a really great weekend. I worked for the first time on a weekend and with only one other staff member, and didn’t break anything. Got around the seeing a movie I’ve been wanting to see and didn’t suffer from any anxiety. While working on the weekend has totally thrown me off a timetable, it was a great learning experience. I felt like I actually did learn things. Had a nice glass of Jack Daniels and then the next morning made myself the most perfect hot chocolate, if I do say so myself.

The best thing about the weekend was though I actually got to relax and recharge. I have had to go out every day on the weekend for the past three weekends and it’s been really annoying. I’ve enjoyed the time I’ve spent with people, but there’s nothing like being able to spend most of the day in your pj’s and just chill. Especially when you are cooking some beautiful beef in a slow cooker.

This weekend has inspired me!…Watch this space for more…

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

Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?

It honestly depends who I am with, if I am comfortable I am totally a hugger and a cuddler too. If I feel uncertain (and that can change too) I wont feel comfortable hugging. I’ve hugged someone I didn’t feel comfortable hugging and it didn’t end well, so I learnt from that one! By “change” I mean (for example) there was a group of friends that I thought I was close too and hugged them all the time. However (and to be completely honest) as things changed …ie Younger and more ‘exciting’ models came in. There “true” friendships came out and I started to stop hugging them…Now I barely see any of them any-more.

What is your favorite toppings on pizza?

Woo, there is two that I really love and because of the vast difference between them. My two favourite are “Ham and Pineapple” and the other one is called here, at least, “Double Bacon Cheeseburger”.

If you were the original designer of one existing corporate logo, which one would you select?

I actually really had to think about this one! But  I am going to go ahead with my first thought. I thought of the Barbie Logo. It’s a globally well know logo, that has been standing the test of the time.

Complete this sentence:  Where I can seek my solace is… 

In the quiet of my bedroom, my bedroom is definitely my safe place. I definitely cannot find solace if I don’t feel safe.

When you go away

So I went away into the country this weekend for my Dad’s birthday, which also meant that I could not really access my phone very well (it did a lot of “roaming” over the weekend. SO my phone was mainly off and I didn’t have access to a computer, internet and WordPress.

I’ve also been really struggling with a lot of personal things (mainly job related…or lack there of of getting into the field I want too). Which means that I have really been struggling to think of ‘anything’ magical. Can I just say one thing though that is magical?

Country food is amazing! I mean it’s just different and it tastes healthy as well, even when the food seems bigger. I had these “salt-bush sausages”. They are these big thick sausages that apparently have no chemicals in them or anything like that.
