Share Your World…Week 28
What is your earliest memory?
My earliest memory is actually a nightmare that I had, I don’t know why it’s stayed with me for so long. I’m more of a, if someone tells me about a memory I’ll remember it, so it’s weird that I can remember a nightmare. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of Mr Squiggle, but I dreamt once that he was trying to kill me. That’s my earliest memory.
What was the last photo you took with your phone?
I could show you … My partners cat cracks me up sometimes.
Have you ever danced in the rain?
When I was little, I used to love doing it. As I got older though, I guess I got less brave and just can’t stop thinking about how cold it is to do and it just didn’t seem as appealing.
What is the longest you have gone without sleep?
It’d have to be about a day, it was the last time that I had an energy drink as well. I could not get to sleep and it was pretty scary. It was weird too because I used to drink them and then stopped for about a year. It was my first one in a year, I just assumed that I’d be alright, but I wasn’t.
I am actually writing this on Thursday evening because I know that I’m sleeping in. I have not had a good sleep in in months. I’ve been house sitting, dog sitting. Even the weeks I wasn’t working, I still had to act like I was going to work the next day. You see, we get called in a lot and don’t really have set shifts a lot, we usually lucky if we get one in the quiet time. So you go to bed at a good time and make sure you still get up decently.
Even if this article says it’s bad for you to sleep in…I’m still going to do it!
When was the last time you had a really good “sleep in”?! I would love to know, something fun for me to read when I eventually can drag myself out of bed.
I am having a serious “Blog Block” today, I’ve been trying to look at all the new articles and things around social media sites to get inspired … and nothing. I put it down to a very long work week (we’re currently at one of our busy periods of the year).
So even as I am writing this I am thinking of conversation I had yesterday and I say that “I forgive myself”. I’ve made a promise to myself that I am going to start relaxing and worrying less, after I meet with a naturopath and they told that I had more stress than a Wall Street Executive.
Any-ways, the conversation that I was having with my new friend and one of things we know do is before bed is we say “I forgive myself”. It’s amazing how amazingly well it helps me fall asleep now. I would definitely recommend everybody try it for three nights in a row (everything seems to happen in threes) and let me know the results!
(p.s. the reason for my Buddhism tag is because, according to my friend, it was Buddhism idea).
As a child, who was your favorite relative?
I LOVED my Uncle Adam, he was my favourite. He was the youngest out of all my Mum and Dads siblings, so I guess he was just more “fun” than the other siblings (other Aunts and Uncles).
If you could be a tree or plant, what would you be?
I think that I would like to be a Lily, they are gorgeous! I know that they are considered the “death flower”but they are so gorgeous and glamorous, I love having them in my house.
What would be your preference, awake before dawn or awake before noon?
This is actually a tricky one, I love to sleep (my second favourite Disney princess is Aurora aka “Sleeping Beauty”) Also during Summer it gets SO hot in my room, that I end up waking up a lot of the time before Dawn any-ways,lol … I if I had to choose it would actually be before dawn, as long as I felt refreshed. As bad as a procrastinator as I am I hate to think I’ve wasted a day.
Would you like to sleep in a human size nest in a tree or be snuggled in a burrowed spot underground?
Definitely a human size nest, I don’t really like to feel confined, one of my fears is to be buried alive, so to think of being underground all fitted in, kind of scares me.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?
Being truly happy, I don’t think that you can have fun unless you really truly feel happy. There was a group of people that I used to get REALLY drunk with and I honestly believed for a while it was because I was happy. Then I started to realised that I was drinking because I was extraordinarily bored with these people, it was the same conversations, the same “cliches” over and over again. Don’t get me wrong I still drink, but I haven’t been “drunk” in a long time and I can definitely go a whole night out without a drink and have way more fun that I used too. I haven’t “needed” to get drunk in a long time.
What is your favorite time of day?
Around about an hour before I go to bed. Now when I say “Go to bed” I generally am in my bed but I’m not going to sleep. I’m either reading or watching some tv before then. It helps to come my mind and if I’m feeling down or something, I can watch a comedy and relax my mind. I cannot watch a horror film before bed,lol
Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want have a evening with?
I’m going to go with an “alive” person, still doesn’t make the choice any easier though,lol … I think though honestly it would have to be Orlando Bloom mainly because I’ve had a crush on him my my whole life. Well it feels like my whole life it seems.
Complete this sentence: Something that anyone can do that will guarantee my smile is…
My dog … Every single time, without fail.
What do you do to make a living or during the day if you are retired. If you are a student what are you studying?
My main source of income is through working our local Tafe (which is kind of like America’s College’s). It’s only casual work so I can go from working all five days to no shifts at all. Since they’ve hired a bunch of new casuals, I’m getting even less shifts than I did before. So I’m looking for something else now. I also do Volunteering and I just finished my studies. It’s been really weird not having any homework, so now I’m doing more crafts. Hopefully will be able to make money from it if I get good enough!
Have you ever participated in a distance walking, swimming, running, or biking event? Tell your story.
No, I know a LOT of people who do those sorts of things every year. However, because I don’t have a license I walk around a lot. I also have a xBox Kinect and I play a lot of dancing games on there.
What is usually your first thought when you wake up?
It honestly depends where I wake up,lol…My partners bed actually gives me a bad back,lol. So when I wake up at his house I tend to be in a little bit of pain. When I wake up at my house, I can’t lie, I feel good,lol.
Complete this sentence: Look out behind you, it’s a …
Trawling through Facebook today and it is terrifying me the hatred that is out there. I mean hatred by ALL men and women from all backgrounds not just one in particular. Do these people even realise that they even sound like the very people that they hate?
Anyways I was having a really hard time not giving into the fear and yelling at them all (by writing in cap-locks of course) and telling them how stupid they all are. Then I found this video. It’s time to all hug our teddy’s (press for link to article and video) If you ever feel scared and alone, just hug your favourite teddy (because it might not be a bear…Mine is a plush Lion and now a Olaf)
The author and creator of the film is by Tyler Novo and you can find the entire film including the credits.
Today seems like the perfect time to write about “The Sandman” mainly because we are taking care of my Aunties dog and he has developed this new little habit of crying really loudly at 5am every single morning. The night before he came here I didn’t get a good night sleep either, so I have been trying to make up for it and it’s just not happening.
Also I apologise right now if my spelling and grammar is shot to pieces, my brain is just “done in”.
The Sandman comes from the North and Central European folklore and he is supposed to bring good dream, helping you to fall asleep by sprinkling magical sand onto and into your eyes. The eye sleep that you wake up with the next morning was supposed to be proof that the Sandman has done his job.
Not this Sandman…but it’s a really good song all the same.

Dreams are pretty magical things are they not? Well…sometimes they can be your worst nightmare. You can be in such an amazingly awesome place and then one night you’ll have a horrible dream or nightmare and it affects you for the whole day.
Not every thing Magical in this world is a good kind of Magic. There are bad witches, bad wizards, bad fairies and there are definitely bad dreams…or also known as “Nightmares”. As much as nightmares are truly horrible, they are also an essential part of dreaming. Sometimes (like the one I had last night) they can make you unaware of feelings or situations that you either don’t want to deal with or hadn’t realised that you need to deal with.
If you are like me, my dreams, whether they are good or bad, they tend to be really lucid. A lucid dream is where you can feel, touch and taste everything. It feels SO real that sometimes, in the first couple of minutes after you wake up you still think that it’s happening. I can’t even begin too tell you how many times I have woken up from dreams and they have stayed with me for days after. I even had a dream diary at one stage that I still have and read from time to time…I should really start one again…
