I was wrong…

I thought that Trump supporters would want to say nothing about Trumps “shit hole” comments…I was wrong,lol…That they might want to stay out of this one…

Does anyone else see any irony in Trump calling other countries (especially African countries) *sh%tholes as well? I thought all the money from the hunting and “conservation” that these Americans hunters (ie Trumps) were going over to do, were going back to the people? They keep using it a their big thing, that it’s really helping these countries? You mean, it’s NOT happening? I don’t know whether that’s just insulting or infuriating, considering the rate these hunters and people who want animals like Rhinos. The rate that are killing off the African animals at…I know, I know…I made it about the animals again,lol

I honestly don’t know whether to laugh or cry with them anymore.

WATCH: Kellyanne Conway says “Nobody here talks about Hillary Clinton”, Trump proceeds to Tweet about her (and then later Kellyanne admits they talk about her,lol)

Slow Day!

I have been having a really hard time over the last 24 hours to get my WordPress to load, it’s taking forever. Some pages wont load at all, and I can’t even get the “Support page” to load to contact them. I thought that it might go away when I woke up but it’s still happening…Help! Hopefully I can load my scheduled Blogs in time, to edit them!

Just Plain Pride =D

So I hear that overseas in America today, possibly yesterday, is the first day of Pride Month. I’ve been trying to find out if Australia had a specific month for Pride, because June is the beginning of Winter here. We don’t have a lot of parades, because the weather is just bad, but we still do “celebrate” Pride month during June.

The first Mardi Gras in Australia was held on 24 June 1978 at 10 pm as a night-time celebration following a morning protest march and commemoration of the Stonewall Riots More than 500 people moved down Oxford St, calling for an end to discrimination against homosexuals in employment and housing, an end to police harassment and the repeal of all anti-homosexual laws. They marched in honour of those after the Stonewall (link is too an Australia site regarding Stonewall) riots in 1969.

Now, I have a particular topic I would like to talk about quickly with you all my Pride that I have for my brother. My brother is probably the prettiest Drag Queen that ever has Drag Queened…Not that I’m completely biased or anything. He does do a lot of other Queens costumes and they are fabulous and you can catch him at:

Suck in the hate…breathe out the love

Today I am feeling so incredibly for the strength in my heart and the people who very rarely and very randomly will tell me how proud they are of me. It feels like lately every time I stand up to stand for a cause instead of anyone saying anything positive or proud of me, all I seem to get is grief.

I’m just at a point in my life where I just don’t care anymore, but it bugs the crap out of me. If there is one thing my las ex taught me, this is MY life…My ONE life…And no one is worth getting that upset over. It’s just that one group always isn’t it? Since I’ve taken them out I’ve done a hell of lot less crying and I feel grateful for my life. They just always have to nit and pick, they just can’t stay out of your life!

I am so incredibly grateful and feel blessed for the people that I’ve met on #SafariLive and the #BabyOstrichCam and also include the sweet blogger that I’ve met on WordPress…I don’t know what I’d do without you all!

Saying this all, I have just received an overwhelming flood of support. I’ve been writing about Cecil the Lion and have been “told off” about how dare I care more about a Lion than other human beings.

30 Days of Gratitude…Days 1 – 7

Day 1: New Hope  – Today was a weird day as originally I had a full day and night full of things to do and then over the last couple of weeks there became rapidly less to do, till finally all I had left to do was to attend a wedding ceremony which was only lasting an hour. Watching this lovely young couple made me realise how much I want to get married with the right person at the right time.

Then it occurred to me that I am not bitter towards my ex, or indeed any ex or any past relationship. “It is better to have a broken heart, than no heart at all” as my favourite Doctor in the whole wide world says. It was then that it occurred to me that I am so grateful to have heart that has gone through so much and yet it is so full of love. Whereas I have seen so many that turn bitter and cold and you can see how it is destroying their lives. I am grateful for my heart.

Day 2: My Mum – I know this sounds like a really sappy one, but it’s the truth! I have a great Mum! I realised this as she was picking me up from a far away place so I didn’t have to taxi back. I have decided to surprise her and take my Learners as a special Christmas present to her (I have to pass obviously). So it’s going to be a secret until I’ve passed. It may not seem like much to a lot of people, but I know how much it’ll mean to my Mum =D I’m hoping to have passed it by the end of this month, so I can show her right at the beginning of December. I am grateful that I have such a caring mother.

Day 3: A stranger is just a friend you haven’t met – I haven’t written friends or best friends because sometimes it can be people who we don’t know very well that can surprise us the most. Take today for example, I had a unexpected break down in feeling like a failure because I don’t feel like I am progressing through this year as I would have liked. I expected by the end of this year that I was going to have my dream job and my dream man. I have come SO close to having both and lost both through no fault of my own. Today though I had a bit of a break down on Facebook and I received this message from someone who I added but haven’t spoke too, and they sent me a private message about how they were shocked with how much I thought that I was failing. They let me know that it was sad to read because I send such a positive message on Facebook and they had no idea how badly I had been feeling. We had a good chat and I was so grateful that someone reached out when I needed a good chat the most.

Day 4: Volunteer Work – I am just grateful for the volunteer work that I’ve been allowed to do. My co-workers believe in me so much that they keep giving me different tasks to do and it makes my Library skills so much stronger. I wonder how much responsibility would they give me, if I was just a casual worker? I love where I volunteer and I am grateful to my co-workers to inspire me and remind of the hard work I put in, especially when I’ve given up on myself. When I feel like I am getting nowhere in my work, this reminds me of how much better I’m becoming.

Day 5: The Laughs – So I am having a really hard time with a project, it just never seems to end and in the middle of “about to blow my own mind up” a friend sent me a picture that made me laugh really loudly (in a cafe =S) I am so grateful for friends that don’t just ignore when I say “I’m about to explode” and they ignore…They actually try to make me laugh. Sometimes all I need is that 5 minutes of pure laughter. I am also doubly grateful that over this entire last year I have found those friends..SO much gratefulness!

Day 6: My ex – What a weird concept to be grateful for an ex! My first love (we’ll name him Reno) and I were together for about 3 years, the break up wasn’t really messy between us. However, there was a girl who created a lot of problems and it ended up badly. After a few years though we reconnected and now he is one of my best friends and I am so grateful for that! He keeps proving to me that he knows me better than anyone and gives me amazing guy advice. The last couple of months have been rough for me and he never seems to be mind when I get upset with men in general. I’ve been talking to him this past week and he knows not to keep going on about my last ex, but he keeps a conversation going. I realised a lot of people only seem to talk to me when they think I’m down rather than just having a normal conversation (or when they want something). Not Reno though, I didn’t realise until I started thinking about this whole grateful thing. Sometimes a “normal conversation” can be just what I need, so not everything is still about “him”.

Day 7: Books – It felt like such a funny thing to be grateful about. I am so grateful that I have had a good education to read the books that I enjoy. There are so many people out there that do not have the some luxuries that I have been able to have in my life. One of these is a good education which means that I am able to read the books that I enjoy and love so much. That gives my mind a break from the “real world”.
