I just honestly happened to come by this, and I read it. It is quiet a good read and a good thought, as well. It is good to see people defending Rihanna over the trolls, but to also keep in mind, we don’t actually know what she thinks about her body.
I think the reason why I like this article so much is because we tend to forget that celebrities are, in fact, real people. No more of the years where we can pressure celebrities to do what we want them to do, think and feel how we want them too. No more Judy Garland distressing demise.
The one from this list that really caught my eye, was number 31 and the one that I wish to talk about today.
Life is a mystery and you are not alone.7 billion people are living it without a clue about what happens next.
It reminded me that even with all my own stuff, there are other people out there, probably feeling very similar to how I am feeling right now. That we are just trying to muddle through, in our own ways. Some being more toxic than others, and then some trying help more than others.
Honestly, it makes me feel better than not everyone has got it together. Sometimes I feel like I do and that I do not. It feels weirdly comforting that we don’t all have it together. Some days we do and some days we don’t. I now know even people who don’t like me, do not have their stuff together. I signed onto LinkedIn the other day, after not being on it for months, I was bored during COVID. I discovered that my ex-best friend had looked at my profile, only three days prior.
That was funny. One that she couldn’t help her (she blocked me on FB) but also LinkedIn is a professional/working website. So it’s not an Insta or FB. The most exciting thing that’s on there, is…well, not much honestly. It’s a professional website, I’m not going to be putting my petty dramas on there, lol. I am not going to put if I’m married, or have children. I didn’t go and look at hers, because I don’t need too. It was just funny you know? lol
So, as I will warn you. This is based only on my own thoughts, and life experience. It does not mean in any way, that this is fact.
For myself, there is only left, right and extreme. Except in cases of Politicians, they are all so sus and they are totally playing a game.
I was talking to a friend whose also has been targeted on Twitter. On a really old account of theirs, she saw another trans person who has targeted her as well, defend herself…again. It’s ridiculous, this person runs a “network” and yet, they pick and choose which trans people they’ll protect and keep safe. Which does not include any trans person who works in the justice system.
Any who, they were saying that they keep getting targeted because people don’t like their “hard left” views. You know, it can’t possibly be because they’re just not a nice person.
I will be honest here, I have yet to meet a “hard left” person, whose a nice and decent person. Because they’re not nice people. There are as bad as the “easy” Right. Which is why I say there is only ‘left, right and extreme”. Hard Left, as far as I’m concerned is the same as the Right. They are (every time I’ve dealt with them), arrogant, they think their way is the ONLY way, they are only willing to accept you if you comply with their way of thinking, they take no responsibility for their actions. Who else does that sound like? lol
Technically, Hemingway’s birthday is on the 21st. However, there is not wrong time really to write about such an amazing writer, with such an interesting life. I have a few of my favourite quotes of his below.
“There is no friend as loyal as a book.”
“I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I’m awake, you know?”
“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”
“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, many are strong at the broken places.”
Of all the writers/authors out there, I have read none of Hemingway’s books (haha). But I know a lot of his quotes, and I am fascinated by the man himself. I am sure his books are completely wonderful, I just never read them. I don’t think he was even *required* school reading.
What did Hemingway win the Nobel Prize for?
The Nobel Prize in Literature 1954 was awarded to Ernest Miller Hemingway “for his mastery of the art of narrative, most recently demonstrated in The Old Man and the Sea, and for the influence that he has exerted on contemporary style.”
Over last week I read two stories that made me go…
One was Joe Rogan saying that he would never interview Trump, even though he was asked to several times. Right so, the guy who agrees with all Trump Supporters and is all for Trumps ideas, doesn’t support Trump, himself?
Then there was Kim Kardashian, who was lamenting who she was always the “under dog” and how she was fine with that. Personally, I’m still waiting for her apology to Taylor Swift.
For one second, I was thrilled that Boris Johnson is resigning. Then I thought of all the “replacements” and they are all pretty much just as bad, or worse than Johnson.
Even though I’m Australian, I was really looking forward to Johnson being voted out by the British people.
I have friends and family in the UK (again, I am first generation Australian). I haven’t seen a positive post. I’ve been fighting along my trans friends in the UK, and each Tory is just that slightly be worse than the last. Even the politicians who had family come to the UK to escape persecution. Are horribly racist. Honestly, it’d be the same if Trump had resign. There’s no one really good or great. They’re all either equally horrible or worse.
They’re all homophobic, transphobic, racist. Most of them voted AGAINST feeding UK children, it was so bad, a footballer did it instead. Like I wrote, like Trumps Republican’s.
This week, I have had many a random thoughts. Here a list of some of them. See if you can guess, what they’re about.
They could have had Beto
One of the proclaimed “greatest writer of our time” just wrote penised.
I have yet to see someone give a legitimate reason to NEED an AR.
I really do wish that Twitter would shut down for 24/48 hours.
Ted Bundy, reminds me how stupid women can really be.
Unpopular #opinion. If you want to call yourself a #safetynetwork for a group. You HAVE to get over #ego and you may have to work with people you don’t like or agree with. Otherwise that “safety” net WILL fall. Think #TERFs and imagine if they run the women’s crisis centers.
Now, I want to talk about the things that made us so happy, we got sick from the happiness! lol
We’ve all been there! Well I hope so!
You know what I mean, the getting drunk from good news, or the eating all the dessert, because you’re so happy it’s just there.
Take, as an example, when “my guy” won the election over the weekend. I felt sick the whole time it was happening, that when I found out he won. I drunk, stayed up till 2am was on adrenaline, woke up the next day with a massive headache, lol
