QUESTIONS:

  • Guns?   Are you pro or con?  Explain your point of view.

Oh wow, that is a … loaded … question so to speak! In theory I have no problem with guns. There’s that saying about how it’s not guns that kill, it’s the owner…Well, duh! In Australia we are doing pretty well when it comes to gun laws. People can still own guns, they just can’t own army type weapons, that can kill multiple people within a second. I don’t know anyone personally who owns a gun in Australia, well that I’m aware of anyway, but I know that you can. Just more like rifles and shot guns.

Some people say the same gun laws we have in Australia wont work in the US because the US is bigger than Australia, more population. Which may be true, but how is doing nothing working for them? The one thing I truly don’t understand about the US, why a lot of the 2A defenders, don’t want to try something…anything? It’s such a hard thing to wrap my head around. For example, the NRA tried to block a law that people who stalk and domestically abuse others, cannot own a gun. Why? They keep saying because it’s a misdemeanour, it’s not that serious. They WANT these stalkers and abusers to keep their guns because of “rights”. Why? I am sure in their heads they’re thinking “Well I’ve got a gun, I can just shoot them”…It’s not that simple, and if they shot them dead, they’d be charged with murder. Wouldn’t it just be better and make more sense to make sure stalkers/domestic abusers can’t have guns?

  • How would your country change if everyone, regardless of age, could vote?

Well that’s a lot of a question. Does this mean, should the terrible twos be able to vote? I know that this question is talked a lot about these days, especially with the #climatestrike and #marchforourlives kids. Then on the flip side of that you have the boys from Covington Catholic, would you really want boys like that voting? But then are those boys so different from adult Trump supporters?

  • What’s your cure for hiccups?

I don’t really have one to be honest. I kind of just keep letting it go and just hope that it goes away quickly.

  • What’s the coldest you’ve ever been?

I can’t remember an actual specific time when I’ve been the coldest I’ve ever been. It’s probably been any time though that I’ve hopped into bed when it’s been Winter. It is terrible when I first get into bed, I feel like the sheets are stabbing into my body,lol

Gratitude

If you would like, share a story, a photo or some thoughts on you may be thankful for this week! 

I am grateful for every single one of you. The bloggers that I follow and who follow me.

On the go

Blogging on the go

I have been trying to find way that you can “Blog-on-the-go”. I am open to suggestions! Sometimes I’ll be at work, or I’ll out and I think of a really good Blog topic. Only to get home and completely forget about what I was going to write about! I’ve tried texting to myself, it doesn’t always work though. Some people that I know get really annoyed if I go on my phone if I’m out with them. I’ve even gotten into a argument because I HAD to check my phone. As a girlfriend was trying to get over a guy and I was worried about her.

I was thinking that if I get a tax refund this year, that I might buy a tablet or something similar? Are those voice recorder pens, even a real thing?

Any ideas? What do you use?

Share Your World, May 28th, 2018

If you were to pack a basket for pinic lunch, what would be in your basket?

A nice sandwich with probably that yellow pickled stuff (I have honestly forgotten what it’s called) and either turkey or ham. Either that or Cranberry sauce/jam with Turkey amd lettuce (usually I enjoy those around more Christmas time). At the moment I am nearly obsessed with drinking lemon, lime and bitters. I say nearly because I don’t only drink them. If it’s cold, I’ll have a tea in my travel mug.
Probably some sort of cookie as well. I actually dont like bringing cakes to a picnic. They get so messy and you have to find a space for them, they’re just not very convienent at a picnic.

On a vacation what you would require in any place that you sleep?

Something good to actually lie on! I have tried camping, I am no good at it. I can do it for maybe one night, but after that. A good old nope,lol…Actually if the tents came with good bedding, I’d probably be alright with that.

If you were to buy a new house/apartment what is the top three items on your wish list?

  • I would wish two bathrooms and they don’t have to be two fully decked out. Actually maybe two toilets. At least two rooms that have toilets in them.
  • A pool. It’d be so handy to have a pool with appropriate shading, especially during Summer. My partner is looking for a house at the beginning, I keep asking him to get one with a pool…Nope,lol…It doesn’t have to be huge!lol
  • A heater that works properly. My partners current rental property has the worst heater ever! The temperature thing has gone and it just get’s hotter and hotter. I actually came close to having heat stroke last year, in the middle of Winter!

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

Book Groups

I love the site Book Riot! It has fantastic articles on it!

Like this one…

Book Groups by great authors

 What kind of fantasy book group would you like to participate in?

Professor Gilderoy Lockhart:

Can you imagine a group of students, Hermione, Cho Chang…Talking about the latest Professor Gidlerory Lockharts book. Part fan-girling, part Hermione disputing it all.

SATC (Sex and the City):

I can mainly imagine this as they do in the tv series. In that they mainly getting together once a week with some take away, a glass of wine, gossiping about the latest edition of a favourite magazine. I can also see Charlotte being apart of a different book group that is separate from the girls.

Can you think of any, especially one you would love to be apart of!?

So I did it…

I hope that not too many people in my life know about this Blog…and if they do…Oh well,lol

I finally went to see a psychotherapist and I am really glad that I went to see somebody.

It was fantastic!

See, I’m one of those people that don’t really like to burden people with my problems…I’ve told people about my anxiety mainly so they understand why I’ve stopped turning up to things and how I just don’t want to be treated anymore.

The main issues that I’ve been having is since I’ve started taking my anxiety medication I’ve become more “susceptible” to things…If I read it or hear about it I’m convinced I’m going to get it…Which isn’t great when all these people around myself and celebrities that I adore, have either been having or dying from heart attacks…It’s so tiring being on high alert ALL the time when the pills make you so sleepy.

(This Chihuahua looks like my doggie)

It’s been fantastic to talk to someone/anyone about what I’ve been going through, what I’ve been feeling, how the anxiety started…It’s been great! The first time I went we just kept talking that I didn’t even notice the time go by. I was so sad when it ended. She did say that sometimes after the first session people get really upset because they’ve let out so much…But I felt great! I even went into the city and did shopping for 3 hours all by myself! I haven’t done that since I first got came down with the anxiety blues. I can’t actually wait to go back!

Journal Journalling

I have seen so many Blogs with journals, all different types! Day to day journals, monthly journals, brain storming journals, bullet journals…I feel like this would be a fantastic idea for myself, but I’m just not sure where to start?

I would love to have a journal where I don’t necessarily write down, detail for detail, of my day. Something more along the lines of writing down ideas, thoughts of the day, but also have a space for brainstorming. I find that a lot of the times, I have an idea, but if I don’t do something then and there, I forgot. It usually will take me a while to remember it, lately I’ve been “texting” myself…to remind myself. The only thing I know is that I would love for it too be monthly as well. So I can look back after the year and see where I’ve come from.

I would love to hear from our resident experts if they have any ideas!

My dream journal would have in it:

  • Daily Planner
  • Brainstorming
  • Random Quotes/Thoughts
  • Via monthly.

Let’s Share!

This year for me Christmas was a little different for me. The first thing that it was only the second time in my life that I was away from my Mum’s side for Christmas…and I love my Christmases there! I also had to travel three hours to get there and a huge part of my anxiety is about travelling, so that was exhausting as well!

Other than that I had a really nice time…No matter where I go, I’m always the quiet one, especially around people I don’t know. It was nice to see the different traditions and I didn’t really suffer from any anxiety, other than travelling and I had a bad night sleep. I always do now though, it didn’t help there was something chirping…I think it was a frog?…Could have been a bird? I just want to sleep now though…I think I’m coming down with a cold, I’ve got a slight sore throat, but I’ve started taking Vitamin C tablets….Everyone seems to have it at the moment…Anything worse than a Summer cold?

What I would like to know though, is how did you celebrate the festive time? Are you exhausted too? Did you do anything different this year? I want to start to get to know my readers…Let’s share!
