    • The challenge is to write a piece of historical fiction about it. There’s a

150 word limit. Try not to use the words tree & green.Tag 3 people to use the same genre of writing and this photo to create a post.

I was nominated by the lovely Nova to do this challenge. I just have to say it’s one of the most interesting challenges I’ve had so far. I hope I do it some justice! Do you know how hard it is to not write “tree”?lol

“The Dryads Crib”

Dryads are known for the affinity to the forests and the plants that they are born from. That they are fiercely protective of what is theirs.  If a Dryad wanders to far away from the where they are too care for, they will whither and die. If it’s “crib” dies so does the Dryad.

The picture above is of what is also known as a “Dryads Crib”. It’s commonly known that when Dryads are born, they will tend to group the baby dryads together, much like a modern day delivery room. While in a cocoon type sleep, they will grow until they are eventually delivered, safely grown and protected from the roots, up.

This such an interesting challenge, I would like to challenge:

My Weenies <3

I don’t even know how to start this one, so I’m just going to head on in it.

Do you have two different meanings for one word? I do…I think.

Mine is “Weenie”

I have two meanings when it comes to Weenie…This first is calling someone a weenie and it’s because they’re silly or “stupid”, but not necessarily evil. I guess like the Rose gif at the top there. Generally though, I don’t actually like them, and I like Rose. As I generally don’t like to be mean, I feel like weenie s a more affectionate term to call someone I don’t like very much. A good example used to be Trump, now he is a big weenie! However, as time as gone on, he’s gotten worse.

The other way I mean weenie as well though, is when I like someone, but I can’t say that I do for whatever reasons. So although, I do like them, I can’t admit too it, so I call them “my weenies” so it throws people off the scent.

So one is full of…well..weenies…and the other is full of fake weenies…

Do any of you have words like that?

 

 

It’s all about the Attitude

Nurturing – Thursday – Attitude

In the immortal words of Captain Jack Sparrow

This is actually a really great one for me this week. I ended up having a lot of issues with my anxiety and I had to visit the Doctors. One of the questions that he had to ask was I irritable? Normally I am not irritable, but I did realise that this week I had been. However, I knew it was my issues that were upsetting me. When dealing with other people, I had to meditate myself to not become irritated with them. My issues are not their issues. Which made me also think of my ex friends. How everything is about her. When she accused me of things, it was because and I quote “That’s how I feel when I’m single” Even though the way I thought was the complete opposite. How she would rather hear that we are unhappy in our relationships when she’s single…Still not a good enough excuse to blame me for why her boyfriend treats her badly?

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.

Where does the blame lie?

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.

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?

Lion and Cub

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 ~.^

Amendments

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?
