Thursday Theories – Those stinkin “fans”

*Warning…Long Post*

I am feeling all sorts of out of sorts folks, lol. I started yesterday morning really well. I somehow managed to see that a lot of people were giving LGB “Alliance” a go at. It was truly wonderful too see. People saying things like to their supporters, hmmm…I wonder why Labor didn’t want LGB, but the Tories did? It was glorious!

The day ended also really happily. I live in a main city in Australia, but we are probably the smallest…Maybe Tasmania…But for such a small main city, and being the “City of Churches” we are quiet progressive. So progressive in fact, you know what I saw, front and center in my local library?

In between though…

I tire of humans, I really do. I’ve already some try to ruin LinkedIn, and the only place I feel any “sanity” is on mynameisTravies instagram page. Don’t animals just make everything better?! I was so happy to see Juno Dawson’s book, I nearly cried in the Library. So I am writing to them.

I tire of humans, I really do. All day, it was stupid people talking about people they don’t know, who don’t know they’re alive. Who wouldn’t care if they lived or die, celebrating celebrities making the world worse, OR, putting people in harms way…but all with “love”, of course.

Then as I’m trying to make these people “see sense” I know, I know…One I saw an article saying that Rowling had made a swiping threat at Emma Watson. Like someone tell her SHUT UP! But then I came to a realisation, it’s the freaking fans faults!

All of this is their fault. They’re the ones winding people up, instead of speaking common sense. Imaging saying to someone whose winding someone with bi-polar “Oh, I am so glad you told him off”. No, no no no…Bi polar is a serious disease and it is not just a “mood swing”. I should know, I was attacked by someone with bi-polar, and I’ve always had a twinge of fear since. I can’t help it. I get over it though. But you do not mess someone about who has it. Then people are agreeing that being called transphobic, is the exact same thing as Salman Rushdie being stabbed…

I am sitting there and it this hits me. I’m not sure if I’ve written about this before. But I have said, maybe written before, about this. In order to have any kind of big “presence” on social media. You need to have a strong “skin” and be able to get over your own ego. You need to be able to go “I am not perfect, and that’s okay”

There are SO few people who can do it, at all. I can’t even actually think of one person off the top of my head. Maybe Selena Gomez? As I mean, she’s been through a lot and a lot of it on social media. But, unlike a lot of them, takes breaks from social media. A lot these “celebrities” don’t know when to stop. Especially the Kardashians, I don’t know what they’re going to do, when it all dies down and it’s starting too. But I don’t care, because good riddance of bad rubbish.

The celebrities having literally thousands, sometimes hundreds of thousands telling them more than any of us will get in a life time. That no matter how wrong, or how bad a celebrity is. They will always have hundreds of thousands of people telling them how wonderful and perfect they are one in post. It must be SUCH an ego boost! You are not going to convince me that that is not powerful.

But we don’t have to do that. We’re adults. These people will never know us. There in lies this sickness. Too sit there and trying to impress people who don’t know whether your alive or dead, you gotta have self esteem issues.

It is a sickness and it’s a sad one. Hmmm, maybe I should look into becoming a therapist, ha!

There are approx 7.753 billion (2020) people on earth, and every single of them has an opinion. I’m sure newborns would, lol


The “Art” of Lying

I was inspired to post about this topic over the weekend, after going out one night and trying to find a way to get out of a birthday party the next night. I was invited to a party that I just naturally assumed my partner would attend, which he decided he didn’t want too (he’s an adult, he doesn’t have to go if he doesn’t want too). I felt like I had to attend because not only had I promised at least I would show up. I also had to drop off at the party this expensive drink that someone else has brought and left my house -.- The main reason I don’t want to go is because the birthday guy is a little … strange, especially when he drinks.

Now I am not encouraging lying by any stretch of the imagination, because if you are like myself. If I lie, well, I am just a bad liar. Mainly because I start panicking that I’ll get caught and it goes downhill from there. I am also not asking how about my readers “Art of Lying”…Unless of course you do want to share!

It was interesting to me though how people will lie and how they avoid getting caught (there may have been some alcohol involve) because now we all know how they lie. So here are some of the “Art Tips” I discovered.

  • Food poisoning is the best to go with, because if you say you have the “flu” or a sore throat. As a general rule you will then have to have a “sniffle” for the next few days.
  • Don’t go out during the day or that night, especially when you live in a small town.
  • Avoid ringing anyone, text if you must.
  • Don’t post on social media. Don’t even take a photo to show “how sick” you are.
  • Try to remember a time when you were sick with the actual illness and try to remember how you felt and what you went through.

*Disclaimer* I am not encouraging people to lie =P

Cheer Up Buttercup

I am going through the wars today! My leg started to play up, I think I might (just might) be coming down with a cold and I am a lady so…yeah…let’s not get into that one =P So to cheer myself up I have been watching videos of cute animals pretty much all day. So I thought that I’d share some with you =D

This one hasn’t got your “average” dogs and cat in it too!


Cure what ails you <3

This is my response to the “Daily Post” question:

If you could create a painless, inexpensive cure for a single ailment, what would you cure and why?”

Without a doubt I would want to find some kind of cure for Emphysema. I had to watch my Grandfather die from it and I can say with all of my heart, I would not wish that kind of death on my worst enemy. Even if it meant that as the time neared, it made the breathing easier and better, that’s all I would want. No one should have to die like that.


Share Your World Week 20

Share Your World – 2015 Week #20

Share Your World

What is the most important thing that you ever learned? (I bet it’s not something you learned in school)

No matter how genuinely nice you are and want to help others. For every nice genuine person, there is probably two or three “crazy” nasty type people and most people will let them win. You have to learn to be your own best friend and realise that sometimes you need to take a step back and take a step out and that is absolutely more than okay.

What feeds your enthusiasm for life? 

The goodness in people and the beauty that is in nature. I think that I lost that for a while to be honest. I was so lost and trapped in a whole heap of darkness a few year backs that it was a real struggle to see any goodness. In all honesty, I think it was watching the live feeds on the birth of a baby Ostrich, that brought me back. It’s hard to explain to people.

What’s your most memorable (good or bad) airplane commercial or private flight?

I have not really had a good flight experience, I get all the motion sicknesses so every flight I have to the drugs that make me sleepy so I sleep right throughout. Except for the one time I flew to America, it was over 12 hours and I woke up a few times during the flight. I always have an urge to kiss the ground whenever I fly and we land.

If you were a great explorer, what would you explore?

I would love to explore and try to find the great city of Atlantis, but if that was impossible. I would love to explore Greece, Rome and Egypt. The ancient stories just do something for me.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
