Share Your World – 7-15-19

Share Your World

QUESTIONS:

Why do we seem to respect the dead more than the living?

You know, I have no idea why. Someone can be this really horrible person and yet when they die, people insist on only talking about the good things they had done. Except for the people who had nothing to do them with anymore when they had died. In a way it’s a good thing, because just because they were horrible, doesn’t mean we are. If that makes sense?lol

Why is beauty associated with morality?  Or not?   (a few weeks back I asked a similar question, but the key word was MORTALITY, not MORALITY).  

I know a lot of people like to do this. But it can also depend on the person, like how some people dislike Michelle Obama, a really wonderful person. Whereas they think Melania is really gorgeous, despite her face being stuck in the same position and joining in with her husbands bitherism.

I absolutely adore Michelle Obama and to me that makes her beautiful. I literally cannot fathom what “beauty” people see in Melania, she’s not a beauty to me, at all. I used to feel sorry for her and could see a sad beauty in her, but once she wore that jacket…She could get lost for all I cared and whinged “I’m the most bullied person in the world”. I even thought her birtherism comments were because all she had in America, was Trump. Nope, I think she’s just generally an ugly person, how else can you explain her getting married to Trump to begin with?

Have gadgets and apps taken away emotions?

Oh, they definitely can do that! It’s all about learning about a nice balance.

Is there a perfect life?  What’s your version of a perfect life if you care to share?

I don’t think there is a “perfect life”. I think that there are definitely perfect moments though.

Gratitude (find another question under the graphic)

If you’d like, please share something uplifting or for which you are grateful.

Share Your World…October 8th, 2018

Do you prefer Apple (‘I’ products) or Android for your technology ‘fix’?   

Since I’ve always had Android, I guess that I prefer Android for my fix. The only thing I really have that’s an Apple is my Ipod and it’s already really old,lol….It had to be nearly 10 years old at least.

What’s something on your personal bucket list? 

I want to go to Greece/Rome and see all of the Ancient sites. There was one point where I wanted to go to Egypt as well. However, as time as gone on, I’m just not as interested anymore. I love the History of Egypt still, but just don’t want to go there as much anymore. If I win a competition, I’d go. I’m not really sure why, but Greece and Rome are still on that list.

What would you name your boat if you had one?   The Unsinkable 3? The Please Don’t Sink? Your choice! Also, what would it look like? Do you want a motor yacht, a sailboat, or perhaps a dinghy?

(I like the “Please Don’t Sink” one,lol).

I think I would need to name it something cheery, like “The SunFlower” or the “RoseBud”…Don’t know why I can only think of Flowers,lol.

Which fictional character would be the most boring to meet in real life? 

Edward Cullen…I am not even sorry,lol…Actually either Edward Cullen or Anastasia “Ana” Steele…Once again, not sorry,lol

And finally: 

What brought gratitude, a smile or laughter to your life this week?

It’s been a good week, just overall and even with a cold. It’s actually been really good. I started off the week at my first concert since I had my anxiety attack last year. I did so good, I nearly had a little moment and saw all these people around. After that I just kept looking straight ahead. It’s just been a good week, you know what I mean? Nothing exciting, just all good.

If aliens landed on earth tomorrow and offered to take you home with them, would you go? (remember this is SYW, they are friendly aliens)

No! Even if they were friendly, I don’t know where we’d be heading. I’d would be far too anxious!

How tall are you? Are you satisfied with your height?

I am a shortie! I’m about 5’1 – 5’2ish…I find it alright most of the time. My main issue with my height is are when I’m trying to wear my bottoms. They are always too long on me! I do not sow well either. Pretty much when I get a new pair, I try to sow them up, but it doesn’t work out very well.

Do you think you could live without your smartphone (or other technology item) for 24 hours?

I think that I could honestly. I have other things that I can do for 24 hours. Sometimes when I’m sick I don’t really use any technology. It usually hurts my eyes too much to look at a screen, so I think that I could.

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. 

I finally got around to doing things that I’ve always wanted to do at home. I’ve got my candle making, my polymer clay. I am so excited to get started with it all!

I or i?

A colleague of mine and I were sitting around during a quiet time and just talking about how we don’t actually know what the I or i, stand for in the products. We then went and looked up what each i or I stands for.

iPhone – I = Internet.

Icentral – I = Information (TAFE)

IT – I = Information (Technology)

iOS – I = iPhone (Operating System)

iPod – I = Internet (Pod)

iPad – I = (Internet Pad)

Wi-Fi – I = Nothing…It is not a word or an acronym. It stands by itself.

I bet you all really wanted to know that one!

46. Technology

This was an such a coincidence that this topic is about Technology. My partners computer went a bit funny this week and we had to use our phones to figure out what might be the problem. Which brought up the conversation about how when my computer went down I also had to use my phone to work out what to do to fix it.

What would we have done if we didn’t have our phones? We’d have to take it physically somewhere.

Can’t live with it, can’t live without it either.

I am grateful for technology in that it keeps me in contact with my family and good friends. It has also been useful for my anxiety, in that I can watch funny videos, I can play games on my phone and keep myself distracted. I try to remind myself of the good things that technology provides us with when I see use it for bad.

About Open Library

I just found a really amazing site and I wanted to share it with you all, especially those people who are writers and trying to discover ways to get their books out there.

Their goal is to provide a page on the web for every book ever published.

At its heart, Open Library is a catalog. The project began in November 2007 and has been inhaling catalog records from some of the biggest libraries in the world ever since. Open Library’s goal is to list every book — whether in-print or out-of-print, available at a bookstore or a library, scanned or typed in as text.

I wrote a book, and I have it in digital form. Can I make it readable on Open Library?

Yes! It’s a three step process. Here is the short outline and you can read a longer outline on this page.

  1. Create an account and upload your book to the Internet Archive (you will need to set up a second account to do this, you can’t log in with your Open Library credentials).
  2. Create a record for your item on Open Library by clicking the Add A Book link in the header and adding the proper information.
  3. Add the Internet Archive ID to the Open Library record in the ID Numbers section. To do this, click Edit to edit the record, scroll down to the ID Numbers section and add the Internet Archive identifier which is the last part of the URL. As an example for this book, the Internet Archive ID is historiaephilipp02just. Adding this link will activate the “read” buttons. Make sure you click “save” at the bottom of the page when you are done adding the link to the Internet Archive.

For more information on the uploading process, please see this blog post about uploading and metadata.

Social Media Cleanse

*Edit* I am so sorry! I do not know what’s going on lately, but I swear that I am scheduling  things and then they just keep popping up everywhere, anywhere they feel like!

It is SO hard these days to ignore the social media “craze” and the hold that it has over all people of all ages, races, gender, background…the list goes on. It is important to note here though that not everyone in the world has a computer or a “smart phone”. It is easy to understand though why people find it so hard to take themselves off of it, some struggle even not being apart of it for only hours and minutes at a time.

I made a promise to myself about a year ago, that at least once a week I was going to come off all my social media pages. Which I can say that I do and it’s easy. Although to be honest it isn’t that hard, there are a lot of negative and horrible people on their. They definitely do help me get fed up with it easier and they make me want to come off.

There are SO many benefits from coming off of social media, even for just one day. I can also say that I find it easily to spend days off of places like Facebook and Instagram so much easier these days for my longer than a day. I find that once you start making something apart of your routine and you keep it up, whether that be keeping something in or out. It just starts to become easier after a while.

However, I also think that you need something else to keep yourself occupied, especially those first few times that you do something. Below I have written a few things that I found kept me from getting on social media. If you have any please, free to share!

  • Read,read,read…and did I mention, Read…Taking time off from social media is definitely a good time to get caught up with your reading. If you are anything like me, once I start reading I tend to just keep going. Especially if it’s a book that I’m interested in.
  • I also love to play video games, so that is a good time.
  • I tend to do more things like mediating and doing more yoga when I take myself off. It gives me to properly sit and meditate and clear my mind. Although my Gran did say that you should be able to meditate anywhere, if you are doing it properly.
  • I do a LOT more walking, by myself and with my dog. Even if I’m walking to the local supermarket. I’m more likely to walk and get my food, rather than order it online…Save a lot of money!
  • Cleaning out my closets…Just this past week I have gotten rid of about nearly 10 blouses/shirts that I haven’t worn in a couple of years (I’ve had most of them for years, it’s just been the couple of years since I hurt my leg, I’ve put on weight) I have gotten so much more space now, it’s great! Room for more…Just kidding ~.^
  • Of course it gives me a lot more time for writing Blog posts and just the general writing for fun that I like to do.

Twitching to Twitch

I finally thought of something to write about, something that is really quiet magical to myself and I hope that it becomes magical to you as well.

I call myself a “creeper twitcher” which basically means that I watch a lot of Twitch streaming…

What is Twitch, I hear you ask? (Maybe)

Twitch or Twitch tv is probably the leading platform when it games to live streaming gamers and their games. More than 45 millions…that’s million…gamer use Twitch to live stream their games and other related live gaming type entertainment. This can be anything for watching other people play, people who cosplay making their latest costumer to food and drink. Some people will just literally streaming themselves having a party.

I call myself a “creeper twitcher” because I watch quiet a few twitchers. Some are harder to watch than others just purely because of the time different. As I’ve mentioned before it is LIVE…So this means because we are watching people from all over the world, sometimes you do miss a favourite twitcher. However, there a couple of Australians I LOVE to watch and luckily, they like to Twitch a lot as well!

I have often thought about becoming a Twitcher myself, instead of just stalking everybody on it. I just do not have the guts to do it! I honestly feel like that people on the Twitch community are becoming celebrities on their right. A new media for celebrity maybe?

What about yourselves? Do you like to watch Twitch? Care to share who you are currently watching? Are you a creeper too?
