What household chore do you absolutely enjoy doing? (can be indoor or outdoor)
For myself it’s more about why I’m cleaning, if that makes any sense? If I’m cleaning for a reason (even if that reason is because the house is gross) then I enjoy it more. Generally I don’t really enjoy any of it. I do enjoy putting things back where there supposed to go, all tidy and clean. Like you make a bigger mess first before it’s tidy. I enjoy the part when it gets tidier…Basically I enjoy it when it’s done,lol.
Create a sentence with the words “neon green” and train”.
I wanted to travel in the neon green train along the Pacific train track.
Other than your cell phone what can you always be found with?
At the moment and since Christmas (other than my wallet). I can always be found with a fidget square. I’m not actually sure that it works, but whenever I use it, I definitely do not get worse! My partner was going to get me a spinner, but, and rightly so, thought that it’d be too boring for myself and wouldn’t distract me at all. So far, he’s been right. All the spinners seems to do is spin and the squares allow you to hide them in your pockets as well.
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 actually smiled at people unfriending me on Facebook this week. I’ve started to notice that when I write something positive or how happy I am. I lose someone, and you know what? Goodbye Felicia’s! My Facebook is not a place for you to feel better about yourself via my misery or to use to go and spy on me. I’m not sorry for starting to be genuinely happy with my lot in life. For the first time in a really long time, probably since my Grandfather died about 5-6 years ago. I am happy.
My thoughts to people who want to me to be unhappy, or are just jerks in general, or my happiness is boring to them.
This is something that I’ve noticed in the last couple of years, and I don’t know if it’s just me or is it something that you have all noticed too?
I’ve started to noticed a thing these days instead of people taking any responsibility when they blame someone, they then turn around and say “Oh, but I’m not blaming them/you”
YES THEY ARE!
I’ll use a couple of examples that I’ve seen or seen others use against me personally.
Last week I talked about how women are STILL the main culprits when it comes to attacking other women when they come out about assault (See the blog here). One of the main things that they kept saying was “I’m not blaming her…but…(or then goes on about how she should have left)” Yes you are blaming the victim! That is blaming someone!
Myself personally, one of the life long friends that I’ve recently banished for life. A couple of years ago when I was trying to tell her to leave her abusive boyfriend. Her whole excuse for why we didn’t hear about the “good things” he had done. The whole reason was because when she is single, she was really jealous about hearing how happy we were in relationships…I was the only single one at the time…I have been single more than I’ve been in relationships…I have NEVER EVER been jealous of my friends being happy…In fact I have been the complete opposite for my friends…Especially when they’re actually being treated been well…When I pointed out this too her…Not the fact that I am nothing like this, nothing about the fact that his abuse SHOULD outweigh the good. Of course my response was but you are blaming me, for your way of thinking……She just kept saying “I’m not blaming you, I’m just saying that’s how I think”….Which you’d think my so called “best friend” of half my life should know me better than that…and it is still blaming me.
Hence why we will no longer been friends after she blamed me of treating her like dirt the last couple of years…She’s still with the boyfriend by the way…Abuse 101!
Anyway…What is up with this trend lately? How about you just say what you mean. If you don’t mean it, don’t say it.
Well here we are again =D
What one word describes you best?
At the moment it feels “relieved” is the first word that comes to mind. You know that feeling when you’ve been in a really bad relationship for a really long time, and then it’s over…and you just feel relieved, that’s where I am right now.
I think the general word that I would used for myself overall would be steady. No matter how good or bad things are, I never lose it with others. I try to use the same routines to keep myself together and I keep treating everyone the same.
What is set as the background on your computer?
If you have been to a foreign country name those you have been too?
I’ve just been mainly to the UK and the US of A…I have family and friends in both the countries.
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I lost lifelong friends this week…In all honesty though, I am alright. I haven’t cried, I have been laughing a lot and I have been get a lot of stuff done and I’ve been getting out a lot! The wonderful thing everyone else has just been amazing! Everyone else in my life has been doing what those “life-long friends” SHOULD have been doing. I think that’s the reason I just feel so amazing! I almost feel guilty for not feeling more upset…Only just almost ~.^

So this is what “Amendment” means:
“a minor change or addition designed to improve a text, piece of legislation, etc.”
In others words…The word Amendment means it CAN be changed. Any of them. I was thinking about it…I am sure that the American forefather made it those words, so things can be changed. Although I was “told off” and told that the Government can’t touch the Bill of Rights…So why call them Amendments if they can’t be changed? Or if the people really want something changed, it can’t be? Or is it an American thing where everybody else has the same meaning for the word “amendment” and American just HAS to be different with it?
Over the weekend I hope that you got to see the very awesome that is Zola the Gorilla! If not here he is.

I thought that it was a fantastic little video, and according to animal experts it shows that he is comfortable and content.
However, of course, all the “Zoo’s are jail” people tweeters came out. Now I am watching Safari Live and just my whole life. There is nothing better than seeing an animal in the Free, just roaming down, doing what they do best. However, I also understand Zoo’s, not all Zoo’s mind you are good for conservation and people (mainly children) getting their ever first sighting of a “real animal” rather than on a screen. Also a lot of animals in Zoo’s are rescued from other areas where humans have come in caused destruction.
What I cannot stand though are those people who tweet and say how terrible it is, but that’s it…Unless you have no heart, I think we can all agree that we’d prefer them to be out in the wild. But what does it help if you constantly tweet things, and then that’s it? Does it make them feel better that we all can agree they deserve to be in the wild? What exactly what do they achieve, other than some kind of smugness?
Zola the Gorilla is well taken care, happy and safe…and teaching hundreds of people about them. A lot better off than some others out there and your “tweet” does pretty much stuff all…Unless you DO something! If you asked Zola I’m sure he’d wonder why if you’re so upset about it, the best you can do is a “tweet” for him?
What’s your opinion? Do you have any suggestions or idea on what could help?
What is something that people are obsessed with but you just don’t get the point of?
Complete strangers opinions and lets’ be honest for some people it obviously affects them badly and then spend all this time trying to prove how it hasn’t affected them. I’ve always felt like if something really doesn’t affect you, you don’t spend a lot of time on it. It’s okay to be upset by these things, people are cruel, especially strangers who it doesn’t affect. Pretending it hadn’t, doesn’t help either. You take it on and don’t do anything about it, it’ll get worse.
What quirky things do people do where you are from?
We make up words and for quiet a few years there all of us “kids” thought that the words the adults in our family were talking about, were real words. For example we say “Parple” which basically means “Fart”. I personally say szchikabab instead of “Shit”,lol.
What are some things you wish you could unlearn?
In regards, to one of the above questions. I have learnt how cruel people can be, I wish I could unlearn and still have that naivety that people have some sort of good in them.
Who is someone that you miss having in your life?
The first person that popped into my mind was my Great Grand Father and also my Great Grand Mother, but I never got to meet her. I’m sure a lot of people would agree with me too! My Great Grand Mother was apparently very kind and not much seemed to bother her. She had polio and lost half of her leg because of it, but when people first saw her after the operation they didn’t even notice. My Great Grandfather definitely had an Irish temper, but he generally sweet to his family, especially to me =D hehe. They were also both WAY ahead of their time. We found my Great Grandfather “scriblings” and he was so smart! He wrote things about religion and do we really need it now, he was learning Greek at just over 80’s year old because he wanted to go to Greece and see all the ancient sites, before he unfortunately had a heart attack.
This week Bookmark Chronicles (and myself) would like to know:
This week I want to know…….
Have you ever found a typo (or typos) in books?
I have to say that I have and I found them even with my favourite authors and some of my favourite books. Also like Bookmark Chronicles I understand that people make mistakes and even technology can as well. I have also noticed sometimes when I purchase books that are written by American authors, sometimes their English is different from ours and that their terms have been left in. For example:
Colour vs Color
aluminium vs aluminum
biscuit vs cookie,cracker
Just a few examples.
I wake up again, the same life, everything the same.
I thought it was going to be different this time,
I thought that things were just about to change.
I thought that my life was about to begin,
I thought that this was it for me.
When is it all going to change?
I step into the warm night air, just to escape doing the same thing every night.
I thought that if I keep telling the world I’m alright, I would start to believe it myself,
I thought my heart would be full.
I thought life would be complete.
I thought something was about to change.
I thought that if I could just dream and truly believed, it would happen.
One thing I can say about this latest American election is that it truly has brought out some really truly astounding arguments, or why it is okay for either side to have done what they’ve done. Many of the arguments I have seen are:
- The memes! Just plain memes, other peoples words in a flashy picture. If you truly believe in something use your OWN words to fight for you.
- People who stand with Trump claiming “fake news” and then used Muslim women in chains saying the picture was live from the latest women’s march -.-
- People who tell others to “get over” the fact that Trump is now President, while complaining how complacent we had become…Which I agree with, we had become complacent, and I love that people are making sure the politicians know WE ARE WATCHING YOU…But which way do you want it…Complacent or Not?
- Fake Accounts: Because nothing says “I believe in what I’m saying and I know who I am and I have a backbone and I believe in my convictions” Like a fake account and no one has to know who you are.
- Well your side was accused of raping children too…So that somehow makes it okay for our side to be accused of raping children, because the other side was accused of it too. I think this one annoys me the most…It’s not OKAY for either side okay? I don’t care if the other side did it too, it doesn’t suddenly make it “okay” for your side to have done it … This is what is wrong with the world…
