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.

In this day and age

  • There is no excuse to not talk to someone. We have more ways of communicating than ever before. (This clearly does not apply to people who are mentally finding it tough to reach out. This more towards people who don’t want to know the truth, and gossipers).
  • There is no excuse to not find out information BEFORE you make comments on something.  There are so many ways to research something, anything.
  • When someone does reach out, there really is no excuse to keep lying.

Oh, Georgia

A bunch of white men who will NEVER be pregnant. Are celebrating that another bunch of white men, voted to make it harder for women to get abortions …But it’s the Muslims who are trying to control us? Only Muslim men control their women? America’s going backwards for reals.

Let’s break down some actual facts here:

  1. Not all abortions are because of “birth control”. They are also because of rapes, victims of sexual assaults by family members. Either the fetus/baby are going to die or the mothers health’s is at risk. So to force the mother to give birth to a dead baby and then risking the mothers life too, not exactly very “pro-life” is it. It’s more force births. Hence, why I now call pro-lifers…Force Birthers, because that’s essentially what they want.
  2. Parent Planned-hood doesn’t do JUST abortions. They do a variety of health care options, like birth control options. They also do cervix screenings, pap smears. So unless you are doing this…Sit down. You need to do research instead of listening to the propaganda.
    Abortions make up 3.4 percent of the services Planned Parenthood...3.4 percent!
    Washington Examiner – PP reports abortion figures 
  3. Testing for sexually transmitted diseases comprises the largest share of Planned Parenthood services, at 48.7 percent, and next is contraception at 27.1 percent.
  4. PlannedParent are very upfront with what they do as well, because they get wrongly accused all the time by idiots, who go with their feelings and keep choosing not to listen.
    https://www.plannedparenthood.org/about-us/facts-figures
  5. Basically PP would be alright with not doing abortions, because it’s not even their most used service.
  6. It’s also NONE of my actual business what goes on between someone legs, and what goes on in someone else body. It’s not mine and its not yours.
  7. Yes, we are fetuses because we are mammals. We are not special. It’s called science.
  8. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, abortions after 21 weeks make up less than 1.3% of all abortions in the United States. This means that abortions that occur beyond 24 weeks make up less than 1% of all procedures.
  9. There are many reasons why women may need to access abortion later in pregnancy, including maternal health endangerment, diagnosis of fetal abnormalities or restrictive laws delaying earlier access to abortion care. Those exceptionally rare cases that happen after 24 weeks are often because a fetus has a condition that cannot be treated and will never be able to survive — regardless of the gestational age or trimester.

  10. Nobody arrives at the decision to have an abortion after 24 weeks carelessly.

  11. See, I know, even writing this. I already know that the people who already know this, KNOW this. If that makes sense? You all don’t need me to break it down, because compassionate thinking people, know all of this already.

There is absolutely no excuse in this day and age to make judgements against people with no research, who you don’t even know, based on your feelings…Because that is exactly what they are. You are judging people based on no research.

Namaste, you judgemental fools.

Feeling a little lucky

No, I haven’t won the lottery or anything. Last week, I hadn’t been asked to work at all this week, other than Friday. Which means I had spent the last week doing a lot of my online studies and doing a lot of research into certain things.

The two main ones being a)Twitch and b) Redbubble.

Twitch is a gaming type platform. Where a lot of gamers can play games (usually pc and console games), but can choose to interact with others who can watch them play the games. I have a couple of friends who are already on there and they are so encouraging me too join. I even have names: The Tea Lady, Lolsy’s Tea, Napsy Lolsy Tea…Possibly changing Lolsy to Lollys…yeah, I think I’ll do that. I’m know what to do, I’m just scared to do it!lol

Redbubble is a platform where artists can sell their upload their art onto products, such as, phone cases, pillows, cards etc and sell them to the public. Now I don’t draw, but I say a lot of unusual things…Not creepy weird, just quotes. I say “I’ll be fine”, probably the one I best known for. However, over the last few months I have been writing down sayings I have. Completely random things, like having a pillow case that has on it “In case of favourite character dying…then on the other side…Hug me”…Things like that. I mean people are selling Lion King merchandise on there, don’t know how. Why can’t I do my quotes? I just need to find a program where I can put a nice background on.

 

World Lion Day

The Kings and Queens of the African Savannah!

This celebration of the animal kingdom’s most beautiful and fearsome creature was founded by Big Cat Rescue, the world’s largest accredited sanctuary dedicated to big cats. August 10th is a day for people to come together from across the world to pay tribute to the mighty lion in as many ways as possible. Though a fun and exciting occasion for all, its foundations are based in a very serious matter: lion numbers have dramatically declined to the point where the species needs to be placed on the endangered list, just like its larger cousin the tiger.

*Now please be VERY careful when you chose to donate to any cause…Especially when it comes to Wildlife. They can’t let you know if the money is even getting to them and there are LOT of people who DO take advantage of this. Please do research before donating*

Saying that…Please DO donate too:

Please DO NOT donate too:

  • BJWT
  • Kevin Richardson aka “The Lion Whisperer”

I actually used to follow both of these accounts. BJWT isn’t even a registered sanctuary, despite what “Papa Bear” may say. It’s kind of like saying I’m Beyonce, just because I say. Kevin Richardson, blamed one of his own staff for her being killed. When it wasn’t the case and the women unknowingly walked into an area where the gate had not been shut properly. It was also NOT the first time someone has been killed on one of his properties.

Beware of “rescues” and “foundations sanctuaries” that allow people (especially celebrities) to come in and handle cubs/baby animals. Sanctuaries will NEVER allow humans to handle the Cats. We give them and they give us diseases, but ours kill them. Another reason to NOT support BJWT. Constantly having cubs come in (most of the time on a weekly basis), then they get sick, then they “disappear” is not  what a Sanctuary will do. Sanctuaries will only come and “rescue” cubs IF it’s urgent.

Well…Learn something new?

Breastfeeding Mum baby dies after single snake bit 

Hopefully none of you are new parents, but hopefully this will be a learning tool for us all! Apparently not only did a mother die from a snake bite, but she then passed the poison onto her baby through her breast milk.

I’m just having a hard time with how long in-between times was the bite and the feeding of the child?

Clicks 2 – Self Business!

As you can see from my previous post (May Goals). I have decided that I am going to start at least researching about how I might be able to do this and start creating a small home business. I decided after initially being inspired by putting “Magic Monday” , which is one of my Blog categories) onto a jar for myself. Why not pursue this further? Using my own quotes and seeing if I can draw any kind of designs to come up with. Maybe place these on cushions and see what happens from there?

I have been able to find one good site so far:

https://candlemaking.com.au/

The only problem with this site, is that you can’t inscribe anything on the jars. However, I am sure I can find something that would allow me to do so. I have only just really started, so I have literally just been Googling everything at the moment. I would like some advice or some inspiration. Have any of you done this, or are currently doing something like this at the moment?

Ironically as well, this was my Horoscope for the week (Taurus)

So as you have probably heard by now, this is one of the biggest weeks of –arguably – your life! No kidding. This week sees the planet of revolution and rebellion, Uranus, bursting into your sign like a massive bolt of electricity that leaves every hair on your body standing on end.

So what do you have to look forward to? Well, change, awakenings and liberation, to name three things. It might be a bumpy ride but the shackles are falling away.

No joke, we went from 104 (F) weather (40 c) to Winter the very next day…Been a bit of a shock to the system.

  • Try on jackets and coats, get rid of ones that I haven’t worn in either years or ever.
  • Look into making my own candles and getting my own quotes on jars. (I was initially inspired by this after thinking about putting Magical Monday on a candle jar for myself. Then I thought why not look more into this?)
  • Try to create candles with certain fragrances as well…Try to research into what a “motivating” fragrance might be, for example.
  • Finish up writing the review for “Lord of Shadows”.
  • Look into healthy Winter recipes.
