QUESTIONS:

What’s something your brain tries to make you do, which you have to will yourself NOT to do?  (could be a bad habit, a physical response to something…your interpretation is as good as mine! )

Unfortunately, I can still take things a little personally. Without even meaning too, I am getting better at not taking things too personally, but sometimes. So sometimes, if my partner seems annoyed with me, I have to walk away from him and think about it more sensibly. “Is it really that big deal”, “Should I just tell my partner why I’m upset”.

When someone finds out what you do, or where you are from, what question do they always ask you?

Do I teach? Especially when they find out that I work in a school. If someone overseas finds out that I’m from Australia. I am not kidding, they will always ask if there are Kangaroos or Koala’s in the back yard -.- lol

What’s something terrifying that we’ve all come to accept as a fact of life?

Death, well, you kind of have to accept it. We haven’t got immortality…yet.

Should governments make laws to protect people from harming themselves?  Could that even work?  (yes this one is deep, maybe too deep).

I’m not really sure how you could govern it, that’s the only thing. It’s not something that people really share with others, and they are good at hiding it as well. Sometimes you have to be an expert at knowing how others act when they are harming themselves. I’m not actually sure it would work. I think we just have to stop the stigma around mental health. When people blame mass shooters on mental health, but then they’ll slash funds to mental health places. The solution seems simple, don’t blame mental health. Give education on it.

Tiny poll:   I’m curious what type of questions YOU, the reader, would like to see more of?   Less of?   Has SYW gotten too philosophical and less fun in nature?

Share Your World – 8-19-19

QUESTIONS:   

What would be your solution to the over-population of the earth?   Earth has finite resources and humanity seems to be breeding themselves to extinction.   Some countries have tried restricting the number of children a couple or a person can have, with little success.  So what other viable options are there for reducing the number of people? 

I honestly have no idea. We seem to be going backwards in that regard, meaning, forcing women to give birth more and more.

Okay, the rest will be ‘recycled’ questions.   I got a Sunshine Blogger Award recently and I thought some of the questions on that post were kinda nifty.   So “recycle”!  

What’s invisible but you wish people could see?

This is going to be lame…I wish people could see love and hope. I feel that they are so important for people when the world is horrible.

The Muppet Christmas Carol GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

What’s the most ridiculous fact you know?

I think because I live in Australia, this one has some resonance with me. You are more likely to be killed by a falling coconut, than a shark.

Death by Coconut

What are the unwritten rules of where you work? If you don’t work (retired or unemployed) what are the unwritten rules you live your life by?

We’re not supposed to come on sites, like WordPress, especially if Managers are around. Mine are training newbies right now, but they’re off exploring at the moment…But when it gets quiet, everyone has a non-work site that they go onto. WordPress is usually mine.

How do you feel about putting pineapple on pizza?

Oh, I LOVE pineapple on Pizza…Yes, I am one of THOSE weirdos!lol…I have two usual favourites. One is Hawaiian and the other is chicken BBQ. Actually I’m not sure if the chicken BBQ one has pineapple, but I still really love it!

Toilet paper, over or under?

I always forget how I do it when I see this question, but I think it’s over? I put it so people have to take it from the top.

What’s the best type of cheese?

Jarlsberg Swiss cheese, with the holes in them. Freaking delicious!


GRATITUDE

If you’d like, please share something positive, uplifting or funny from last week.   We can always use some more of those things! 

I posted a picture on Instagram and I had 3 (lucky 3), strangers tell me I am ridiculous good looking and pretty,lol. Made me feel good when I’ve been sleeping all weird, all week,lol.

Mama’s Day

Criminal – Britney Spears – YouTube 2011

The above video is to stop people who may not like Mothers Day and just say to them, please stop reading now. I know some who do not enjoy this day and their reasons are their own and are completely justified. Just like some do not celebrate Father’s Day, we need to respect those who do not want to celebrate the day.

What I write now, I just warn you I’ll write for Father’s Day. I think the “rules” still apply, it just a change of the words.

Spice Girls – Mama – Can’t find official video?

Here are some “rules” for Mothers Day:

  • If you see one, maybe two, cakes with “Happy Special Person’s Day” on it, surrounded by other cakes. Please do not post the photo of the one cake and try to make it a “thing”…It’s not a thing. It’s just one cake.
  • If you don’t get on with your Mother, if you are distant. You are not under any “Law” saying that you have to do something or anything for your Mum.
  • If you have women who have stepped into the “Mother” role, you do have to do something nice for them.
  • Although generally there is Mothers Day stuff everywhere…You may still have to remind your brothers (like I did this year. I got all blamed last year because I didn’t remind him last year). This one still applies to Fathers Day too!
  • While I get it may hurt some, days like these…It’s not okay though to tell others or to make others feel bad for celebrating it. I am sorry.

Share Your World – 17-09-2018

Here’s Our Questions for This Week’s SYW:

What Is Your Favorite Beverage?  (for those who really dislike “favorite” questions, hey, time to time, one just pops in and will not be denied).

I go through phases where I’ll like and be almost obsessed with drinking just the one type of beverage. At the moment it’s Lemon, Lime and Bitters. I think it’s because it’s definitely (too me) a fun Spring type drink.

What Is Your Interpretation of ‘The Golden Rule”?  Are there ramifications to breaking it?

I believe that the “Golden Rule” means ultimately what you think of “how you treat others” is.  Do you believe in Karma, do you believe to treats others how you’d want to be treated, or does it not matter to you? I recently wrote a blog post about Karma and how you shouldn’t expect Karma to go the way you want.

Sunrise person or sunset person?   

I am both…Although I have only seen the sunrise, maybe once or twice in my whole life. It’s funny because since I’ve had my anxiety attack I hate seeing the sun gone down now. I feel better when the sun is up.

Do people in modern society anthropomorphize animals too much? 

I think we do, but I also think that it can’t be helped. Some of the videos on YouTube, they seem SO like us. I think it’s what gets animals into trouble as well though. Naive ones amongst us forget that they are animals. Even the pet dog and cat, they are still animals. With a whole bunch of different instincts and feelings.

and finally

What Were You Grateful For During the Past Week?    

I’m grateful for all the sane people in my life,lol

Social Media Etiquette

This has been such a huge topic, especially over the last year. I mean you just have to look at Donald Trumps Tweets on Twitter on what NOT to do.

Do you have any rules for social media? I would ask what do you think the rules are, but as a lot of people don’t follow them. This is a much easier list!

Some of my rules for myself are:

  1. Never EVER use a derogatory term, such as ‘retard’ or the ‘c word’. I don’t even like Trumptard, Which is why you’ve probably noticed I write Trumptar, instead of the usual whole word.
  2. I’d like to say that you shouldn’t swear, but sometimes…The mind explodes.
  3. If I don’t understand something, I read before I answer. I read into something first before I’ll reply.
  4. Only use capital letters (shouting) if you feel the person really isn’t listening and you want to help them listen to what they’re saying. I only using “shouting” when I can’t believe what someone is saying. What they’re saying makes no sense, or hypocritical.
  5. I will never have a lot of symbols in my name, tagline. Maybe one animal emoticon, that’s as far as I’ll go.

  7. 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.
  8. I’ve had to stop naming animals on safari live, for myself…A lot of them just die…Especially the “prey” eg Bryans Mum.
  9. 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!

  11. 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

 

Favourite outfit?

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. 

 

Shoutout one of your fave blogs

Although I enjoy all the Blogs (why would I follow otherwise?) I just wanted to shout out to one of my new favourite Blogs. Life Lessons from Around the Dinner Table. She is a great writer!

Rule 1

Flowers

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!

Amendments

So this is what “Amendment” means:

“a minor change or addition designed to improve a text, piece of legislation, etc.”

In others words…The word Amendment means it CAN be changed. Any of them. I was thinking about it…I am sure that the American forefather made it those words, so things can be changed. Although I was “told off” and told that the Government can’t touch the Bill of Rights…So why call them Amendments if they can’t be changed? Or if the people really want something changed, it can’t be? Or is it an American thing where everybody else has the same meaning for the word “amendment” and American just HAS to be different with it?

Did you know?

*I thought that this Law in Germany is quiet interesting, considering what’s happened the past week*

In Germany they have a very strict law regarding certain symbols, that have been very present by a certain group of people in the US.

Strafgensetzbuch section 86a

Breaking the Law down:

The relevant excerpt of the German criminal code reads:[1][2][3]

§ 86 StGB Dissemination of Means of Propaganda of Unconstitutional Organizations

(1) Whoever domestically disseminates or produces, stocks, imports or exports or makes publicly accessible through data storage media for dissemination domestically or abroad, means of propaganda:

1. of a party which has been declared to be unconstitutional by the Federal Constitutional Court or a party or organization, as to which it has been determined, no longer subject to appeal, that it is a substitute organization of such a party;

[…]

4. means of propaganda, the contents of which are intended to further the aims of a former National Socialist organization,

shall be punished with imprisonment for not more than three years or a fine. […]

(3) Subsection (1) shall not be applicable if the means of propaganda or the act serves to further civil enlightenment, to avert unconstitutional aims, to promote art or science, research or teaching, reporting about current historical events or similar purposes. […]

§ 86a StGB Use of Symbols of Unconstitutional Organizations

(1) Whoever:

1. domestically distributes or publicly uses, in a meeting or in writings (§ 11 subsection (3)) disseminated by him, symbols of one of the parties or organizations indicated in § 86 subsection (1), nos. 1, 2 and 4; or
2. produces, stocks, imports or exports objects which depict or contain such symbols for distribution or use domestically or abroad, in the manner indicated in number 1,

shall be punished with imprisonment for not more than three years or a fine.

(2) Symbols, within the meaning of subsection (1), shall be, in particular, flags, insignia, uniforms, slogans and forms of greeting. Symbols which are so similar as to be mistaken for those named in sentence 1 shall be deemed to be equivalent thereto.

(3) The exceptions from §86 subsection (3) and (4) apply accordingly.

This means that the symbols that were proudly placed around the “protests” in Charlottesvilles in America last week, are actually illegal in the country from where they originated from. They take it VERY seriously as well. They do not mess around with these symbols in Germany.

Fake Liebster Award news ~.^

So I decided to “steal this” if you will from the awesome Blogger that is Emilyxonline (Beauty and Lifestyle Blog) Please check her out, it is an amazing Blog! I decided to steal it from her, because I realise it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. These are some great questions!

THE RULES:
Answer the 11 questions that your nominator has asked you.

  1. Nominate 11 other bloggers (with under 200 followers)
  2. Ask your nominees 11 questions.
  3. Let them know you nominated them!

Instead of tagging 11 people, anyone who wants to do this post. feel free too! Make sure to tag me in them so I can read your answers and get to know more about you!!

My questions for all of you:

1. What is one thing you love about yourself?

This has honestly been the hardest question to answer. I’ve been feeling very lost recently and not very respected in a lot of different areas of my life. So it’s hard to think there is anything lovable there. The one thing I do love about myself is that no matter what I’m going through, I do not take my stuff out on those who have done me no wrong.
2. If you had the chance to meet your favorite youtuber, who would it be and why?

I never have but I would love too! Their “career” isn’t really YouTubing, but their YouTube channel is now apart of their career. I suggest that if you’ve watched RuPaul’s Drag Race, or are aware of the Drag scene. Please check out “Bro’Laska“…It’s such a great and funny channel! This link is for their play list. You will not be disappointed! They have made me laugh and gotten me through some really depressing nights. If I’m in a bad way, I will play their videos before I fall asleep. Unfortunately, there last few videos have been extremely short.
3. Have you ever traveled out of your country? If so, where did you go?

I have, I live in Australia. I’ve travelled too two places, one was the United States and the other was the UK. I loved both places, they were so gorgeous and I travelled to the US and then UK straight after and the difference in the greenery, was shocking! I couldn’t get over it! Literally,lol.
4. One quote you will always stand by?

I will always stand by the Quote:

Will Shakespeare

It was written by the one and only William Shakespeare, but it is also on my Great Grandfathers head stone. I feel like we have lost this a lot, and it is probably the hardest thing to do in this world. Especially in the world we live in, with all the photo shop and filters and this almost “need” to have the best of everything, even if we don’t really want it. I think we need hold to this quote more than ever. In a world where people don’t want to listen to other sides and just want to bully, it can be tiring to fight for ourselves, but we need to more than ever!
5. Favorite childhood memory?

This is an interesting question, because my answer is a weird one. Whenever my brother and I would both get grounded at the same time, especially if it was an all-nighter one. We would sit in our bedroom door frames with our pillow and blankets and just talk to each other. We were probably being punished because we were doing something to each other, but we would just sit, talk and joke. I can’t even tell you what we even talked about, or why we were grounded, but they were honestly my favourite times.

6. Advice you would give your teenage daughter (if you ever have one)?

The best advice that would probably give her is that, she needs to decide for herself what is right and what is wrong, ultimately she is the one that HAS to live with that decision. If she knows that something is wrong and she goes through with it anyways. I will be there, but she has to be willing to follow through with the consequences of her actions. That whatever her decision, she needs to be willing to take responsibility for that choice.  For example, if she walks pass someone being bullied, she needs to really ask herself “Why”…I think that I’m pretty harsh sometimes,lol
7. Are you more of an eyeshadow or lipstick lover?

Definitely a lipstick lover. I am so low maintenance and trying to do all that stuff to your eye, it’s a lot of work,lol…I also do love though how lipstick just seems to give me that feeling of “I am finally ready, this is it”. “This is me for the whole day/evening/party.” I tend to put lipstick on last. I tend to just put an eye liner on. Sometimes I will put eye-shadow on, but it is really rare and usually I have practised with the colour (or colours) earlier.
8. Favorite high-end foundation (if you have one) and favorite drugstore foundation?

I don’t really have one to be honest.
9. How often do you wash your makeup brushes/sponges?

As mentioned before I am really low maintenance when it comes to make-up. So I don’t really clean that that often, because I don’t really use them that much. Most of the things I use, don’t really need to use makeup brushes and sponges. If I ever have to use that kind of makeup, I’ve probably borrowed it from my brother…He’s a Drag Queen =D lol Far more make up maintenance than me,lol
10. Favorite thing to do on the weekend?

I love to sit down, with a cup of tea/coffee, play “The Sims” and then watch “Safari Live“. Oh I love it! I would literally do it every single day if I could =D Please feel free to join us…I’ll be there! If the weather is nice, I will go for a walk with my Dog and usually walk by the shop, buy a nice lunch, just before the drive.

11. What do you like about my blog? 

I like how your Blog is relatable, even though I am low maintenance when it comes to make up, I don’t feel like it’s too extreme, that I just don’t get it. It’s also given me a few handy tips as well, so I don’t need to take so long,lol. I really enjoyed your “Get UNready with me” post, as I feel like I have no idea what I should be doing at night, but should be doing something! I also didn’t know that you lived in Australia at that point,lol
