Ted Talk

Ted Talk

I rather fondly call this my Ted talk. More so as I was in this video expressing a number of thoughts and so only watch if you have the patience to listen. Otherwise I seriously wouldn’t bother.

It’s cathartic to talk and so I do.

I will however be honest I cut out quite a chunk of what I spoke about as after doing so I thought nahhh it’s stuff I don’t need to share. But then I am quite a sharer as that’s what keeps me sane in life.

There are times we all need to share thoughts or moments with just someone. These days due to everything I just find myself sharing in my blog or in my Coffee talks.

Today’s I call the Ted talk because it felt like I was relaying something and well why not. Ted I’m sure won’t mind me using his name.

I give myself…

I give myself…

I decided to give myself time from Second life a few days and from filming etc.

I actually realised that all the time I’ve been blogging and filming I never take time off from it.

The only times are my trips away and even then, I have a habit of pre preparing my blogs etc in advance.

This Easter weekend I actually have officially given myself 3 days off and there won’t be any videos appearing on YouTube or any blogs that haven’t already been prepared.

I just simply deserve to find other time.

So you may wonder what has she been doing do different?

Well very basic simple things. Spring cleaning. Those jobs you want to do but never get around to doing. Cleaning out cupboards etc.

The best bit however has been manicures, pedicures, face masks, films, and just really relaxing. Oh and tapping the odd blog on my phone.

Tomorrow’s plans are sorting my bedroom and moving the living room around and washing windows. Not necessarily in that order.

For now, it’s just after 6pm and I’m finally sat back down after my mad kitchen cleanse and I’m contemplating salad for dinner and a cool drink.

Sadly no alcohol as I’m still it seems reading night on my blood tests. It’s troubling me because I don’t now understand it. It came out of nowhere the spike and it’s not going down despite changes I’m making and the extra drugs. I have a feeling this year is going to really be testing in that area.

Still there’s worse in life and we just go with the glow and do what we can.

Have a lovely Sunday and enjoy the time.

Get off the machines and talk to your family and friends.

My Sunday

My Sunday

I love Sunday’s, I just wish they lasted longer than they do.

It’s probably the only day in the week I feel relaxed for even a brief moment. Then comes Sunday evening and I start to start winding up ready for another week.

Is anyone else like this?

If I think about it, is it because of current lives we are living now or the fact that I’m a miserable soul?

I’m a miserable soul if I’m alone in this feeling. But I doubt it.

All of us normal average working souls share this because we are not living our best lives.

My best life is certainly far from here back in Australia, being creative and feeling the sun each day.

My children and close friends all nearby and never a worry about work and it’s politics.

But then there is reality and I’m not rich and can’t just whisk everyone to where I want to be.

So Sunday evening comes and I start that heavy feeling of monotony again waiting for Friday.

In the meanwhile I think in my virtual life I’m looking rather savvy here and really ready for a spring encounter.

What you think? An afternoon tea maybe with scones and cream? P

The new Future?

The new Future?

I was speaking to a colleague earlier about our new futures.

I mean, let’s face it. Things are just not the same. It’s a year later and we have also experienced all sorts of tech that we didn’t use before. On top of that masks have become quite trendy.

Who would have thought.

I was browsing online the other day and this magical clear face mask appeared before me. Allows you to breathe and won’t smudge your make up. What more could you ask for?

I decided 2022 will be a little like this picture. We maybe can’t see it yet, but you wait!!

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

It’s nearly time

It’s nearly time

Seriously this has been a mad day!!

A truly cluster of one. Systems down, can’t access anything and me here dreaming of laptops flying through the air in sheer frustration.

I’m glad the day is over with because for the only time you will ever hear me say it, I felt bored.

It’s difficult when you have no access to email or folders to find things to do other than wish the phone would ring. You literally have your hands tied and at the same time because it’s work, you can’t exactly leave your seat and find something else to do.

I took to drawing squares and circles on paper and stick men. Then it was hangman and then I thought to myself this could need a shrink kind of doodling.

I then discovered 3D paint on the laptop and painted a 3D woman. That’s it really.

So here’s hoping tomorrow is a better day because I really hate feeling like I’m just sitting waiting for the phone to ring. Give me work pressure any day!!!

This is my pretend look of the train home and out to a meal for the evening.

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.

I’ve just been watching Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downey Junior and Jude Law. Why haven’t I seen this before?

Great film and the sight of Robert Downey naked strapped to a bed with a lovely floral pillow for his modesty. Well that made the film!!!

I’ve never really been into Sherlock Holmes, mainly because I’m more a modernist type film buff. When I say modernist, I mean in terms of look and era. So maybe I change my mind now.

In other news Drax sent this following link to a few and I watched. Then I watched a second time.

It really is interesting and if you don’t mind subtitles it’s worth watching due to the subject. It does make you think. I say no more.

Let’s discuss

Let’s discuss

The elephant in the room.

There isn’t one really but made you look. I’m pretty speechless today. Never mind the news we are in a further total lockdown.

I agree it’s needed. There are frankly people out there who behave like stupid and don’t care.

But hey who am I to judge?

I’ll put this here. I woke up today with a throat that is like razors and I can barely swallow.

Is it because I spent the night snoring and hurt my throat or have I picked up something?

I’ll let you know later today.

But if I’ve picked up anything. How? I don’t go anywhere. I have been in lockdown many months and haven’t had a social bubble at all.

I’ll leave this here, the housemate. Who doesn’t follow the guidelines. This is as simple as that.

Please don’t assume I have Covid because I’m not saying that. However what I am saying is every single person has the responsibility to think about those around them.

Start thinking. Because basically I shouldn’t be catching anything at the moment. Even a common cold which I’m assuming this frankly is.

Do you have heels?

Do you have heels?

My Saturdays never feel the same without a dance video. I’ve already previously shown you this dance but sometimes it’s nice to redo them in different scenes. Plus I love searching for the music.

Nothing else to say. Cmon it’s Saturday and I’m off to play.
