Well I’ve had my invite for the Vaccine. Strangely I feel like it’s a history making moment.

Not that I am important to historical noting but because it’s that feeling that in years from now what is debated amongst people will become the norm.

I prefer to look at it like those wordings “one small step for us, one giant leap for everyone”.

(Note my politically correct version before someone decides to have a keyboard moment! )

I personally am grateful that there is a vaccine and it’s out there. There’s no ultimate guarantees but at least it’s a start. Much like the flu vaccine. It won’t get rid of the damn pesky virus, but perhaps make its existence less taxing on our bodies.

I work with a few people who are anti vaxxers and what we fondly call Covid idiots.

You know the ones, just because no one they personally know has been affected, then clearly it doesn’t exist mindset.

It’s difficult having conversations on the subject because of this and it does make me feel that our world is divided and living in parallels.

I’ve said this before much like the Mandela effect, there is this Covid effect. We’re living in the Matrix!!!

Now here I’m living in the Matrix and my virtual person is me!!!

Happy Saturday

Happy Saturday

I’m currently sat on the sofa (nothing new there) watching some B grade film which to be fair is utterly rubbish but none the less I’m absorbed somewhat. You know the someone was killed Miss Marple type of mystery. But not as good as Miss Marple.

I have noticed that I do watch some utter rubbish lately. I’m not sure if it’s because things are on repeat or frankly that’s all we are getting. Hard to say really.

I’m waiting for season 11 of the Walking Dead and the millionth series of Outlander, I’ve forgotten which one to watch out for already.

Truth be told I’m in skank mode currently and just need to get dressed and go do my hair and maybe just maybe brave the outside world. Ice and chill but glorious sunshine.

In this outfit I hear you ask? No. But in the virtual you can do whatever you choose.

Saturday Sale shopping!!!!

Catching a train

Catching a train

I’m not really catching a train but I do wonder what that feels like now. Not having caught one for over a year!

Honestly what a different experience that would be right now.

I’m having an odd day here in reality. I applied for a job. In my own work team I will add. I answered the one question on the application and was told yesterday I wasn’t shortlisted because I didn’t answer the question!

The question simply was a question the reason for applying. But I’m told that I should have been referring to the job description answering that question. But it didn’t say that. Question was simply reason for applying. I knew something was wrong because I had great difficulties in the application with freezing connections and in the end had to log into it via chrome.

Fact is when I applied there did not appear this box that tells you what you should also include. In fact I even said to a colleague on the day I would have expected it to be there, so uploaded my CV too just in case.

Anyhow it turned out all a mess and it is as it is.

What I take away from moments like this, is my strong sense that things always happen for a reason.

I’m more than able to do the job I know and I don’t have any self doubt about that BUT maybe I’m to do something else!!

So for the first time in 16 years of doing a job I love, I have made the decision to start looking at other things rather than hope my moment will happen because if I’m honest with myself it won’t.

SECOND LIFE - WOMEN

Did I just?

Did I just?

I got married.

Rather I may considered to be. I’m totally into my phone these days. The current love of my life other than my family.

It speaks to me via a male Aussie Siri and I can find whatever I want on it. I check it for shopping, I check it for news. I communicate with friends and family on it and even play the odd game on it.

Seriously have you ever considered how attached you are to your phone? I certainly have and it’s actually quite worrying how this gadget has slowly taken over our lives.

I’m currently considering what we would do without it.

Let me tell you. Chaos!!!

I remember some years ago when it snowed so badly it affected the networks etc and my little gadget was rendered useless. I was stranded in town unable to let anyone know where I was. Just stuck. 5 hours wandering around a shopping centre because I couldn’t walk home in my work heels.

Let me tell you. We rely way too much in tech and really need to at times switch off and learn the old fashioned things. You know, walking places and talking?

Sadly though in our current climate our tech is doing two things. Keeping us in communication with people we cannot see but also enslaving us.

So I decided it’s a bit like a marriage. Addictive and satiating but also at times confrontational.

What can I say

What can I say

I’ve not been feeling the greatest this past week. I’ve slept on and off the past few days. Hence no blogs or videos. Apologies.

I’m feeling disturbed to the point that I have to lay here in bed writing this. It’s so late but I slept so much today I’m now wide awake.

Remember the Mandela Effect?

It feels like currently right now the world is experiencing this.

People are genuinely believing this pandemic doesn’t exist and it’s a form of control by governments! The other side (people like me) thinking vastly differently and that we need to eradicate this.

No this doesn’t refer to two sides of my mind. This is about two individuals living the same time but walking a different but same path. Seeing the same things but the perceptive belief is vastly different.

It is quite scary how there are the people like me who are understanding what is going on and what we need to do. It’s the others that scare me. They’re so caught up in their theories and truly believe them.

It’s a form of insanity to me to hear how people believe, truly believe that governments are doing this to control them. What on earth are these people listening to?

There’s no logic in their defence and not for one second do they notice the glaringly obvious . What government chooses to lose its economy willingly? Why?

I’m not keen on politicians at the best of times. They’re all flawed with one or other things. However I’m not daft enough to believe governments around the world are deliberately sabotaging their people and economies to gain some kind of mind control over their populations.

That sounds a little bit like cray crazy to me. Ok. A lot!!! So explain to me this vastly different set of views? How did it happen? Where did it start?

I have a theory. The Mandela Effect. It’s out of control. It’s slowly seeping and spreading and dividing people.

You can see it in not only the Pandemic but also the very divided cultural and social beliefs.

It’s the year 2021 and we have just stepped 5 feet back against the direction we were meant to be heading

Does that surprise me at all? Not really. Humanity hasn’t learnt its lessons yet and has somewhat of a long journey to go.

Humans are their own worst enemy at times and led by the snout usually. Humans have a tendency to gather and pack into groups, often without any real tangible reason than the sense of belonging.

Mix that with a tablespoon of social media, a drop or two of suggestive subliminal media and what to do you get? A pack. Blindly following.

I’m going to call it the Two Step Effect.

It’s almost like a dance whereby the two packs run to a drum beat alongside each other. Yet they dance different beats to the same drum.

Whose drum is right and whose is wrong?

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone out there. Whether you celebrate or not, I wish you all s as wonderful few days.

I’m taking time to enjoy a hot chocolate in the real world as well as the virtual. Why not.

Lots of films and chilling time.

But I’m now taking a few days away from blogging and so to give you some viewing pleasure I made a few videos for the Christmas period just to bring a smile.

I released all but one of them last night and so here they are in no specific order.

Sunday bliss

Sunday bliss

Happy Sunday and it’s not snowing here in reality. It’s just rain, rain and more rain.

I was up last night till stupid o’clock and I really don’t know why. Ok I do, I’m trying to change the region I live on to a snow one.

Every year I change my little homes and use all the prims in the world to make my home for the winter. This year I have region control and I really seriously have not a clue what I’m doing.

I stupidly assumed you pop the textures in and hey presto you have a snow region and an ice lake!!! Clearly not. I have icy sea and you can’t skate on it. You sink.

If anyone has any idea how the sea changes to a lake? Asking for a friend. 😳

In the meantime I released my visit to snow drops which is truly beautiful.

The snowboarding is so much fun and you really need to try it sometime.

Mmmm K my KPop

Mmmm K my KPop

I actually kinda feel these dances and I’d say because they’re so positively cute and fun.

Right now I really embrace the distraction of fun and I’m not averse to featuring dances over and over again when I feel them.

Today the world feels a little different with the last 24 hours and either way whatever you believe or wanted it’s really dumb to trash others views. ie the truly toxic insults I’ve been seeing hurled around Facebook in both my rl and my virtual realms.

Let’s face it that dude is a meme that keeps on giving but that’s him. He has always been that meme.

Hating on each other is pretty toxic and petty and really aren’t we all allowed in our democratic world to have freedom of thought and expression? That doesn’t mean to freely bestow hatred because of peoples choices or political leanings. Smile then move on.

Winners or losers. It’s about being good humans and accepting we don’t all agree in this world.

Wouldn’t it be a really dull place if we did? Enjoy the memes but forgive the rights to have choice.

Win or lose well and carry on. Our virtual worlds are a place to drop this and forgive and just crack on with friendship.

Now enjoy this video because I certainly felt it.

Feel good about yourself

Feel good about yourself

The secret to feeling good is how you greet yourself in the morning. Your attitude to yourself and how you treat you.

I have been moving into a slump the past few months. (Im not out if it by any means) but I’m working on it.

There are many reasons for my slump. The main being what’s happening in the world and my fear of the things we appear to be losing as a result. Worry about our futures but also mine personally.

I kind of started to slowly sink into it, like I’m sure many of you out there may be doing. Being stuck at home and the constant monotony of our current existence. The losing the desire to dress up or even care about things that we place as important on a daily basis.

However I have come to realise when you give into that, you start to lose that feeling of how you do matter and you are important. Your sense of self worth.

Where is she going with this long winded set of sentences I hear you chiming.

I realise that actually what we should be doing is indeed doing the things that can make us feel good even though our movements are limited.

Starting off with that look in the mirror first thing in the morning. You know the one. Where you see yourself and say oh Jesus in your heads.

Instead you need to look at yourself and really see beyond that at who you are and how much you matter. Then treat yourself in that way. Treat you like every day is a good day and you are greeting the world.

Put your best smile forward, brush those teeth and dress as you would have been prior to all this nonsense.

So every day I am practising this, getting back into habit and it does make a difference.

Don’t get me wrong it’s not perfect by any means, but it’s certainly way better than allowing myself to slip into a depression.

Try it.

Meet Dolores

Meet Dolores

It’s Wednesday and for me it’s a struggle of week.

To be honest it usually is of late for one reason or another and that’s just how it is in the current climate. Today after a rather eventual night I decided I really need a break. A complete detach where I don’t get up and start work.

I decided to treat myself to a day off on Friday and see if I can realign my Chakras or at the very least, relax and see a friend or two.

Though I’ve not made arrangements either as I want to just let my day flow.

Last night at 2 am was really my last straw. My bed broke!

Yep you read that correctly the base slats which were a previous repair job suddenly caved in and my mattress took me to a place I really didn’t fancy being in. The hollow of the netherworlds under my bed. God knows what ner dwellers live there but I came back up again.

To be honest it’s really the last thing I needed right now given cash is a little tight these days and I’m trying to get used to downsizing life in preparation for let’s face it pending recession.

So, my decision is….

I’m going to ditch the bed and put the mattress on the floor and turn all Japanese . Why not!

The only thing my daughter did point out was would I be able to get up . Cheek of it!!! So today I’m Dolores my Kalhene avatar. (That’s my nickname for her).
