I am still shocked

Despite everything that’s been happening…There are still Democrats who are still “Will not blue, whoever who”…or whatever,lol…If their candidates don’t get in, do they just not vote? Or do they vote for Trump. Because that’s what happened last time. The amount of people who were like “I don’t want Trump, but if my candidate doesn’t get in. I’m not voting.” How short are people’s memories?

I literally had someone say to me that “Not voting is voting” No, it’s not. Not voting is still not voting. It’s not like an incident where you know the person, like a break up or something and you ask them “Did you want to break up” and they say nothing. You don’t vote, you don’t vote. It’s how Trump got in last time. With people whining “I wanted Bernie or Jill Stein”.

Muller Hearings

I felt like I needed to say a last thing about the Muller Hearings. Muller has never said that Trump is innocent. The situations shows that Americans need to #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica . I think that Trump Supporters thought he was a safe “bet” before, but I think they’ll be voting on mass now. Their complete and utter denial proves that too me.

The funniest thing has been about how Trump supporters, and what they have been saying the Hearing clearly showed. That this Hearing showed that Trump was innocent and that it was a witch hunt. Cyndi “Lynch them” Hyde Smith actually said that Muller had said it was nothing more than a witch hunt. Where, she couldn’t actually point out.

 

 

Slow…

Sometime I am little late to the plate, so to speak.

For the whole of pretty much the whole of Pride month. I had to keep telling people that there is actual Science that says certain people are born with more gay genetics/DNA. It’s just fact…And we all know how much Conservatives love to say “Facts don’t care about your feelings”.

It’s only just occurred to me though. They are just so gosh darn insistent that it’s not something you are born with. Why is that? Why are they not happy, that if it’s something you are born with, you’d think by the time they reached adulthood, they’d know? Then I had just this most random thought. Do you think, they actually believe you can “catch gay”? Which is why they are so insistent you can’t be born gay? If they tell themselves it’s “lifestyle” and not something your born with…They’re safe?

They can’t “catch it”.

Is that why they are so worried, because they clearly have hidden feelings?

What Alice Forgot Review

I have not done a review for such a long time! I don’t think I’m going to be doing it the way I usually do either. I just really want to write what I thought, my likes and dislikes. I guess, in that way this isn’t really a review, it’s just some of my thoughts.

Book Breakdown:

Imagine finding yourself, flat on the floor, in the middle of gym, complete strangers around you. Completely terrified you ask for someone to ring your loving, newly married, husband… Just too find out that you are getting divorced, have three children and have completely forgotten the last 10 years.

This is what has happened to Alice.

Positive Personal Perspective:

I thought that with a book that was about forgetting, I thought that I might become confused with the constant coming and back forth as (I thought) she might remember. I didn’t feel like I was getting confused at all. It’s one of those books written from the perspective of a couple of characters, and those can usually get quiet confusing, but I didn’t feel like that (until the ending).

Negative Personal Perspective:

I have to say I really did enjoy this book. The ending, I have to be honest, I got really confused  It almost felt like “Gotta finish this somehow” and then…I just became confused, I had to go back and reread what I had already read. I thought that somehow that there was just a huge tonne of characters being mixed up, or that I had somehow missed out an entire chapter. Turns out, it wasn’t, it was just the ending.
In hindsight, what lead up to the ending of the book, made the ending, make sense. I just don’t really read books going “I hope to have to reread this in case something doesn’t make sense, straight away”. It might be me being fussy, I like being able to understand straight away.

The End

However, apart from that one complaint, the rest of it was absolutely fantastic! It was a book that made me think, if something similar happened to you, would you want to even remember the last 10 years of your life? Despite everything you might miss, would it make you much more less bitter? Would it help you give a new lease to your life? Would it make you look at your current life a little different, and would you change just, a little on the inside. Would you decide to live your dreams from years ago? Every time I’d finish reading it a bit more, I would have all these questions in my mind, about my own life

Win Days!

I was thinking about this today, how often do we have a “Win” day. By this I mean, how many days do we have that turn out a LOT better than they had started or how we anticipated them? I had one of those today and I really wanted to talk to my partner about it, but then I felt I was bragging…and there was nothing to “brag” about. It was just a day that turned out really well. Despite how I thought it was going to be.

Then when we do have them, I don’t know about others. I want to share with anyone and everyone I meet how well everything went. Then I get all embarrassed and nothing really that exciting happened, it just went well.

How often do they happen really though? Especially on those days when you think it’s just going to go all bad? We should celebrate those days, even if we have to celebrate by ourselves.
