Day 20-A Hobby Of Mine

A hobby of mine would have to be blogging and messing around on the computer!  I find that blogging and reading blogs is really a stress relief to me and not to mention I have met great people blogging.  I have had several blogs but this one and my private ones are the ones that I use the most.  I am hoping one day that I will be able to make my private one public but for now it has to stay private because of people in my life that I don’t need knowing what I am doing and when I am doing it!
I really have no idea where I would be if I didn’t have blogging to help me relieve stress and talk my feelings out.  Even if no one ever reads my stuff I will always keep doing it for me!
So there you go that is a hobby of mine!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now for a new MeMe that Shell does on Wednesdays called Pour Your Heart Out!

This really has become a growing problem in our country.  Here is what they define cyberbullying as:  “Cyberbullying is when someone repeatedly harasses, mistreats, or makes fun of another person online or while using cell phones or other electronic devices.” Approximately 20% of the students in our sample admitted to cyberbullying others in their lifetimes. Posting mean or hurtful comments and spreading rumors online were the most commonly reported types of cyberbullying they reported during the previous 30 days. About 11% of the sample reported cyberbullying using one or more of the nine types reported, two or more times over the course of the previous 30 days.

Here are some stat’s I found about children that are bullied online or through their cellphones.

  • 42% of kids have been bullied while online. 1 in 4 have had it happen more than once.
  • 35% of kids have been threatened online. Nearly 1 in 5 have had it happen more than once.
  • 21% of kids have received mean or threatening e-mail or other messages.
  • 58% of kids admit someone has said mean or hurtful things to them online. More than 4 out of 10 say it has happened more than once.
  • 53% of kids admit having said something mean or hurtful to another person online. More than 1 in 3 have done it more than once.
  • 58% have not told their parents or an adult about something mean or hurtful that happened to them online.

As I have been researching to write this post I have found that they really only focus on teenagers and what not when it comes to this but I am seeing more and more that it is done adult to adult as well.  I can’t find any statistics on it but I can bet that it happens just as much if not more.  I recently had to watch a friend of mine go through this and I couldn’t help but wonder why do people feel the need to be so mean to each other.  I was taught growing up that if you didn’t have anything nice to say you shouldn’t say anything at all.  I am so thankful that computers weren’t really big when I was in school because if I had to deal with cyberbullying along with regular bullying I really don’t know that I would have made it through high school!

I just can’t understand why grown women need to be mean to each other.  Hell if you don’t like someone or what they write then don’t read.  No one is making you read what they write.  I don’t get why like in the movie “The Mean Girls” there always has to be a group of girls that goes around and likes to make people feel bad.  Maybe I won’t get it because I could never do things on purpose to make people feel bad about themselves! 

That is all I really have to say about this subject.  I guess when it boils down to anything people just shouldn’t say anything if they don’t have anything nice to say!

Tuesdays With Jacqui & Day 19-A Talent Of Mine



ANGER?

Anger? Where the hell does it come from? Are we born with knowing what anger is and how to understand it? Or do we learn it from everything around us? Do we learn it from TV, people we are around, or just the environment that we live in.

Is anger the same as hate, or are they different? Does anger grow from hate and from being hurt or is it the other way? Why is it so easy to grow hate inside your heart but it’s so hard to get rid of it? Is it that anger is easier to deal with and you don’t have to work at it? Is getting rid of its just too hard? Anger makes you loose so many things; lose jobs, relationships, family and friends. Anger makes you commit crimes and just do shit that you would never do or approve of when you’re not angry. So why deal with it anymore, why not fix it to make your life better? I hear from a lot of people saying that anger what’s keeping them alive but wouldn’t having love in their life make their life so much happier.

This topic sucks as well.  I personally don’t think I have talents but people tell me I do.  Some people tell me that I am good at making things with photoshop but I can’t make what I want to make so I don’t think I am any good at that.  Here is some thing that I have made using photoshop.  The writing on the picture is the quote at the top of page from Bride Wars!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now for a update that will either give you chills or make you laugh at what idiots for cats I have.  So my grandparents have a cat named Vinnie.  He is older that my two and should be smarter than them as well.  On Friday night I guess while he was outside he caught a mouse and brought it back to Sylvia.  He does this all the time and I am not really sure why.  I mean every time he brings them to her she plays with them for a few minutes and then gets bored and walks away from them.  She hasn’t put together that they are a source of food which is okay with me because she tends to throw up if she eats raw meat.  Anyways, I had the back slider open so they could come and go through what we now call the cat door.  It is actually a big hole in the screen door that Sylvia made one year and now they just come and go as they please.  So I got up for some reason and saw Sylvia playing with something on the ground.  I turn on a light and freak out because the little shit brought in a live mouse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In the process of trying to get it out she loses interest and just walks away.  It ends up getting away from me and goes somewhere in the kitchen.  At this point I am not sure what I should do so I go to Wal-Mart and buy mouse traps.  I get home put them out and try to go back to sleep.  Now fast forward to Sunday night.  I walk in the kitchen and there is the mouse but this time it looks like it back had gotten broken.  My brother finally catch’s it and we put it in the garden because neither of us could kill it.  We are big wimps when it comes to that stuff.
Now I have to wonder where in the hell did my cat get the idea it was okay to bring them in the house and then leave when she is bored.  I will never get how the cat thinks and to make it even more crazy the only cat that was trying to catch it was Elinore and she has no claws!  Go Figure. 

Day 18- My Wedding/Future Wedding

Well I am getting a divorce so I had a wedding that I really loved.  Here are a few pictures that still make me sad to look at.

MOM AND BROTHER
CARRIE & ME
There are two of them!  I refuse to post any that he is in so that is all you get!!!!!

Day 17- An Art Piece

This is an interesting topic.  I am not sure what I want to post for it.  I am not really a fan of art.  I have never really spent time looking at any.  I always got bored when I had to go to art museums.  I did take some pictures of mine own when I was in photography in high school but I am not sure where they are at right now.  I could post pictures of random pieces of art but I think that defeats the purpose of this prompt.  So I am just going to leave it at I don’t look really like to look at art and that is why there are no pictures of art or sculptures!

Day 16-A Song That Makes Me Cry

Today’s topic is an interesting one.  There are lots of songs that make me wanna cry.  I am going to put the music videos on here so you can watch them at your own risk.


Well there are two of them for you!

Day 15-My Dream House

I am half way through the 30 days and it doesn’t seem like it has really already been 15 days.  Today’s topic was my dream house.  I don’t know that I really have a dream house.  Any house that I owned would be my dream house.  I am hoping that one day I will be able to have my Grandparents house.  I really like it and that thought of someone else living in the house that I grew up in makes me super sad  but time will tell what will happen with that.
If I had to describe my dream house it would be a house that is all on one level but other than that I don’t really have any big dreams for a house.  In fact I would probably like a town home or a condo even more than a house because I don’t want to do yard work and with the MS I probably should do yard work!

Day 14-Non-Fictional Book~Writers Workshop

This is the last non-fictional book that I have read all the way through.  I tried to read The Zoo Keepers Wife but I just couldn’t get through it it.  Her writing for me was super hard to get through. I think it was because she spent so much time describing things instead of just telling the story.  The only non-fictional books that I enjoy reading are about the Holocaust.  For some reason that time period has always interested me.  I love to read the stories of the Jews that survived and the ones that didn’t.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
One of this weeks prompts for Mama Kat’s Writers Workshop was to list 50 things that I look for in a man.  Since I am going through a divorce and what not I figure this would be a fun one to do.  Now the question is if I can really make a list of 50 things.  I am going to try but I am not going to make any promises on it.  Oh and they are not in any order.

  1. Respectful
  2. Responsible
  3. Caring
  4. Not scared of the MS
  5. Understanding
  6. Kind
  7. Helpful
  8. Love’s my girls like I do
  9. Treats their mom right
  10. Likes animals
  11. Would be willing to serve in the military if asked to do so or already in the military
  12. Funny
  13. Happy
  14. Willing to work and pay bills
  15. Good credit
  16. Not a cheater
  17. Honest
  18. Willing to help others
  19. Not controlling
  20. Realizes that I have my own brain and that I will use it!
  21. Not scared of a women who speaks her mind
  22. Gets along with my family
  23. Like quiet time some of the time
  24. Doesn’t put his friends before me all of the time.  I understand that at times it is okay but all the time just gets to be too much
  25. Has plans and goals for the future
  26. Respects family
  27. Is okay with me not wanting to have my own kids but I am okay with them having kids already.
  28. Good work ethic

Day 13-Fictional Book

I mostly read fictional books and the last one I read was called “Handle With Care” by Jodi Picoult.

It was a really good book that I recommend to anyone.  I personally didn’t like how it started out but the ending totally made up for it. 

Tuesdays With Jacqui (Cyber Bullying) & Day 12-Something I Am OCD About

This post is about something that really bugs me and hurts me.  I was bullied in high school and thank god I haven’t been bullied online but it happens all to much anymore.  I am going to do a series on bullying in the next few weeks I think.

Okay so I had to change this post because they had to go and throw a tantrum about what I was writing about.

If I got any of this wrong then that’s a bad on me. If you didn’t DM anyone and I believed it then that’s a real bad on me. It’s just that the person didn’t know anything that was going on unless you told them. Ill admit I’m not the greatest person BUT I try to help out when I can.

I just hate that me and 1 of these people live in the same area of town. I have seen her around town and I leave because I don’t need any crazies following me home. We go to the same OB/GYN because I was nice enough to recommend her my great Dr. So I called his office today and told them that I have a stalker and we both go in the same place so they will not schedule us in the same day. I would change doctors BUT I can’t because he is the only doctor I trust with my “high risk pregnancies.” The nurse staff was very helpful and told me that since I am a high risk patient that they might transfer her to another doctor but I told them no since she really loved the doctor too. I don’t think she will do anything to me because she seems like a really nice person but I just don’t want the drama of it. We go to the same places, its simple there’s not a lot to do with kids in Vegas (she says I copy her). Yes we went to the same places after you BUT that doesn’t mean I was copying you now does it? I just hope if you see me around town, please just leave me alone. I know you will not hurt my kids because you are such a loving mother so I know I not have to worry about that.

The other 2  live in my home town. Well we are going there next week and I don’t know if I need to watch my back while I am there. They know where my mom and grandma live. Should I tell them that the crazy’s might be looking for me and scare them? How do I know they will not hurt my children (they seem really crazy to me)? Do I need to put a protective order on these people? Or can I just hope that they will leave me alone. Yes I can’t stop the trash talking and there gossip but I can stop them contacting me in any way.

If I mixed up your stalker drama and thinking it was mine then I am sorry. If there are 2 stalker dramas in your life then why haven’t you dealt with the other one?HAHA I just called me a stalker but that’s what they are calling me. You comment on my page and tell me that I should contact the police about all of this; well I don’t really want to deal with the cops unless I have to. Why are you not taking your own advice? Have you contacted the cops about yours? Or are you just trash talking about them. You say you are to nice/pretty (don’t remember what she said) to talk shit but you talk shit about your other stalker. And you say that you didn’t know I was going to your blog, that’s a BIG ass lie since you we used to follow each other. Yes your right that’s not of my business with you and your stalker. Just stop with all the drama!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today’s topic is something that I am OCD about.  There are few things that I am like that about but the biggest one has to be numbers.  I only like odd numbers and 7 is my favorite.  I also had the digits in numbers.  So lets say the number is 12 I would add 1+2=3 so 12 is an ok number but 11 is 1+1=2 so that is a bad number.  Well there you go that is one of weird things about me!

New MeMe

Photobucket

I am going to follow along with this new MeMe I found this week because I always have tons of things to complain about!!!! So here it goes!

  • I am so tired of idiot drivers that try on a daily basis to kill me while I am either driving too or from work!  It can’t really be that hard to keep your car in your lane and not drive down the middle of two lanes!  If one of you hit me I am going to drag you out of your car and beat the living hell out of you!
  • Why can’t people just get along!!!!!! (There is more on that one on my private blog)
  • The world must be filled with stupid people because I seem to be dealing with tons of them anymore!  I think those of us who have and use are brains and a dying breed!
  • I am so tired of adults acting like children!  I will never understand what people get from bullying people. It is right and I am getting tired of it happening to people.  Everyone just needs to keep their mouths shut if they have nothing nice to say to each other!

That is all for now but you all should play along!!!!
