Going to MARS baby!

Not really…

I found a link though to find out a bit more about it if you are considering a move in the near future (Over 100,000 people have signed up to move/colonize Mars 2022!)

For those not interested I have posted a link to Google Mars…Well a bit of it anyways. Whose in?!

Safe Spaces

Now, I’m not writing about the ones that the Republicans and hard core righters seem to think they are something to make fun. They are interesting things to think about, aren’t they? I was just thinking about this over the weekend. I find it easier to fall asleep with at my partners house, but I find it easier to wake up at my own house.

Safe spaces are definitely not something to make fun of.

I am also finding that my work just in general works for me as well. I think because it helps to keep myself distracted, instead of thinking…thinking……and thinking. Not only do I have different rooms, but just different spaces and things as well. My plushie Savannah and Mufasa, whenever I hug them, I always feel better. Sometimes I will just hug them and not let go for a while. I have a couple of meditation and anxiety apps that I can listen to anywhere, so I guess those are “safe spaces” too?

 

 

 

Why the hate with safe spaces?

This is something that might be just me, but has anyone else noticed the hate towards safe spaces recently? Or is it just me?

I mean generally the people making fun or hating on it are white, middle “mentally healthy” class people. This is not meant to be a white people are horrible post, but does seem to be the general norm.

It mainly genuinely confuses me because why do they even care if someone has one? It’s not hurting them or anyone they care about. My bedroom has always been my safe space and let’s be honest who wouldn’t consider their house to be a “safe space”…Unless of course you are actually getting abused in some way of form or other. I think even while you’re attacking someone from behind your computer, do you not do it with more vile, because you feel “safe”? Doesn’t it then make it a “safe space”. How many of these people would actually attack others, face-to-face?

*This was a scheduled post after a random thought I had beginning of last week. I have updated it though to reflect my personal feelings as well about the whole “safe space” and Hamilton/Pence issue* 

Too me, I find it an interesting concept to attack and say a “ban” on the play Hamilton for example, because Pence/Trump felt their “safe space” was being attacked EVEN though part of their campaign was attacking safe space. What I find interesting about people saying to “Ban it” What side were these same people on when they wanted to have stricter gun control after people, their own fellow Americans, were being gunned down outside theatres, by Americans. It’s not like a President has ever been gunned down at a theatre…Oh wait…And yet, they think a well worded speech is an attack on safe spaces? Clearly what I think is an attack and what they think is an attack are two completely different things. Just seems a shame that these people don’t think people actually dying in a “safe space” is still enough to do anything about it…But a well worded, and totally within their rights, speech, is enough? Even though America is all about “Freedom of Speech”.

Shame.

Is someone able to expand my mind on this? Is it just fear mongering?

Share Your World … Week 42

Share Your World … Week 42

If you wanted to de-clutter where you live, what room / space would you start with?  (And why, if you’re feel like admitting to it.)

This is actually a funny question, I am currently de-cluttering my own room. If I get into a “mood” that is usually where I first go too, I have so much stuff to get rid off and I’m planning on moving out. Also, it just feels like the right time to start getting rid of stuff, there’s a lot of clothes I’ve never worn, that sort of thing. New chapter and all that.

If you want to remember something important, how do you do it (sticky note on the fridge, string around your finger, etc.), and does it work?

I “text myself” and by that I mean, I will write a text message to myself. It does work actually work me. Even if I just write down some key words, and it does seem to work.

If you could create a one room retreat just for yourself, what would be the most important sense to emphasize:  sight (bright natural light, dim light, etc.), hearing (silence, music, fountain, etc.), smell (candles, incense, etc), touch (wood, stone, soft fabrics, etc.), or taste (herbal tea, fresh fruit, etc.)?

This is a good question! It would have to smell, there is nothing worse than a horrible smell, it can be really off putting to me. Think about when you open your bin or your fridge and there is some kind of funky smell. I don’t know about anyone else but that instantly puts me off, it makes me instantly tense. A nice smell makes me feel relaxed and happy.

If you could interview one of your great-great-great grandparents, who would it be (if you know their name) and what would you ask?

My family on either side sound completely fascinating, I would love to interview my Great great great grandparents. I would honestly not know who to choose.

Happy or Unhappy Hug Day!

Apparently today is National Hug Day so if you enjoy hug, I give you a hug

However, there are some of us who do not enjoy hugs as discussed in this article by the (Huffington Post(Australia)National Hug Day: A Horrible Holiday…I am actually really not a huggy person *listens for collective gasps and shocks* However, I am very comfortable with people hugging me who I am incredibly close too and I HATE when people think somethings wrong with me because I don’t actually like hugs and when people point it out, it makes me hate the hug even more and makes me wonder why they are so desperate to hug me. I have my reasons for hating hugs and they are good reasons, but you just gotta respect it.

Just another manic Monday

So hopefully readers find this post entertaining, it’s been a bit tough to get on here and write posts since I ruined my computer. It’s been and down process all weekend. One moment I’ve got it working and then it’s emitting a high pitched squeal.

Technology though can be used in such a positive way as well! The images and the art that can be used to create, take for example:

Giving Proper Credit To The Woman Behind The Stunning iPhone Image 

Absolutely beautiful! She took some images of her daughter and the shadows that she created with her phone are moving. Honestly, I still have these images in my mind.

Hubble’s Greatest Hits

What about Hubble? The space telescope, the images that this amazing piece of technology has brought from the stars beyond our world. Breath-taking and looking at them I can barely believe that they are even real…They are!
