Rules/Representation/Research 2021

A lot of anti-science, trump supporters, show these lions, those lions are in a Zoo. They got that picture, because they were feeding them. There a lot of good Zoos out there. This picture though, is not the greatest representation of lion like behaviour. When you consider they’re not hunting for food, but like the sheep above, being herded towards their food.

Rule 1: Research all meme’s and gifs, before use

I also wish people would stop be know-it-alls next year. Why is it there’s always got to be that ONE person that to just disagree with EVERYTHING, when you all want the same thing? As two VERY good examples, one being people complaining that Churches were being cancelled, because you couldn’t go to buildings. Or when people KEPT saying that Christmas is cancelled, because, for some, it’s about seeing family. No, neither of them were or are. If you haven’t seen family in some way or anything, meaning actually physically or through technology, even conversations over the phone. Do you care about your family?

Rule 2: Think before you post on someone’s post. Rule if you think it’s apprioprate.

Even though I feel like I’ve come out of my shell a lot this year. I realised, especially at the beginning of the year, with my last therapist appointment. I have never really had someone. If that makes sense to you? So whenever I get depressed, down about something. I still go inwards. I can’t tell people what’s wrong. I still keep it inside.

Rule 3: Represent Yourself! It’s okay to tell people things. “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” We’re all going to die anyway! Haha

Rule 4: Pick a word and STICK to it!

I’ve noticed that throughout the year, whenever I wrote lists, more things would get done. I don’t know what it is, but this going to be the year that I write lists! Lists of family members, lists of phone numbers and addresses…Lists about lists! You have to actually write a list, not electronically, but writing with your own hand. Not only does it make you do some actual had writing, which helps you make sure you still know how to write. I also believe those, writing something down with your own hands, grounds it. You’re much more likely to remember it, instead of relying on a computer to do it for you!

Rule 5: Represent all parts of your lives, by writing the important lists. Those cousins and their kids you don’t see that often, write their names down! Make it your new little “black book!”

The most important rule in 2021 should be though.

Rule Yourself…You are the only person who can!

Represent yourself and remember to show up with yourself!

Research yourself! We’re always changing, always learning new things. No harm into maybe researching yourself a little more too! We do tend to forget ourselves a lot!

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?

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.

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.

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.

11 Facts about yourself

 

  1. When I am completely by myself, I can wear my pyjamas for hours…and hours!
  2. I am such a Christmas person that I can easily buy new Christmas presents starting January. I love giving gifts!

  4. I love pineapple on pizza >.<
  5. After my anxieties issues this year. I am now terrified of getting pregnant and giving birth. It’s a real/legitimate fear I have now. What if I have a panic attack and I kill the baby because no air or something? I’ve not been able to tell anyone about it.
  6. I have got specific ring and message tones on my phone. So I know who trying to contact me. Mainly I have these for my work and my creepy friends,lol
  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!
  10. For a 34 year old woman, I have a lot of plush toys. But they are all important too me.
  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.
