What Is It ?

What is it that makes you  ..you ?  What is it that makes you special ? What is it that makes you different  from everyone else  ? There are so many things that makes each person different from any other we could go on for days  if we tried to list them all . Starting with genetics  , that is the 1 major thing that rules us all no matter what race , colour or creed we are , everyone has  a distinct genetic code  and that can never be changed , just as we are all born exactly the way we are meant to be , no matter what the evil that is transgender says , a man is a man no matter what he does to his body , the same for women , you are never born in the wrong body  .

What else is there  ? Hair for 1 everyone has a different style , colour , and even this is genetically controlled , but at least us changing it a bit as in cutting it  , perming it, colouring it  , is not  harmful so we can do that without harm to ourselves. Then there are the eyes , these too are all different , in colour and size and even shape  the only real difference  is the way we use them , lol you know when a woman flashes them at a man she wants to impress , do you do that to your man  ? lol I do to hubby  and  it works lol .We then get into body types and they are also so very different according to race, colour , etc , some are large , some are small , some are tiny , again all down to the genetics that we come from . Having  a large body does not always mean  it is your fault you are large or as the world sees you fat, some people through no fault of their own have a genetic thread that is very hard to beat , and no matter how hard you try you just cannot lose weight, but some people just cannot accept that as the truth and can be very hurtful to those larger people , yes some are that way because they eat too much but not all of them by a very long shot .

Also there are people who are too short or too tall  and who would love to be other but unless the genetics are there  it cannot happen  , so like large people you just have to manage until you can hopefully find a way to stall or stop the genetic code that rules your  life. Amazes me though just how many people will do anything and everything to change their body style and shape just to be more beautiful , when in actual fact  it is more than likely just an attitude  change that would work better. People with a selfish nature  or with a violent streak  or who are just shy or  just want a me , me, me, type of life all the surgery in the world will not change what is inside . Never in my life have  I cared about a persons shape, colour, nationality  , it is what that person is like inside , that is how I work out what people are really like . They can do all that , become the most famous , the richest , the most sought after , the most beautiful,  but if they are rotten inside it will all be a total waste of time and money to change it all.

What is it ? What is it that makes you happy or sad  or upset or  cynical or whatever you show to the world each day ? To me just being able to look after my hubby and also my family and keep clothes on our backs and food on the table , and the ability to  go and do things if we want to is more than enough for me . I am not 1 of the ones who has to try to change things that do not need changing , thinking that by doing so then  I will be happy , no I long ago realised the best way is to make the most of what  I have and to see the bright side wherever possible   and try to make people laugh. To let our problems  get us down is not the way to get the best out of life  , you have to take control or get controlled . Too many people let themselves be talked into things that they never should agree to and saddest of all now they are ruining the children , trying to tell a 2 year old  they were born in the wrong body , now how evil is that  ? We are supposed to protect the children not corrupt them , this is worse than those that stick a phone their kids hands as soon as they are born so they don’t have to worry about them .

The world has changed so much now it is so hard to make the right decisions about anything , and it gets down to what we really are inside as to what and how we make our decisions in life  that  helps also to make us what we are . Making the right decisions these days has become so hard I can see  how easy it is for some people to make the right ones , knowing full well that once the decision has  been made that is it  , for better or worse as they say in the classics …..or when you get married  ..lol ..So what is it with you  , and how you do things and how you handle day to day things  ? What is it that makes you tick in just the way you do ? The reasons why we do and say the things we do  are so many and so varied  that we all  have a very different style , and  the way we handle things is all mostly the same way our forefathers did , if we like it or not  that is the way it is or as they say also in the classics …..It is what it is  ….

 

Figuring out that you’ll probably never figure it out is the first step of really figuring it out…

Life

Life …. Now who messed it up so much  ? Come on fess up …lol well it seems it has been messed up by someone doing something  silly to it , life has become these days just like a jigsaw  puzzle  and half the time you just don’t have all the pieces . Remember when, say only as little as 10 – 15 years ago life was a whole lot easier to manage ? You knew what you wanted to do  so you set yourself a task  to do and got on with it and the end result was you got where you wanted to be , doing what you wanted to do what you set out to do. All the hard work all the time you spent on it  everything you planned has all been done and you now have what you want  from the beginning , so now you relax and enjoy all that hard work , enjoy the fruits  of all the time spent.

Well somehow in the last 10 or so years this scenario  now has become all messed up , like the jigsaw you had all the pieces  you fitted them together , now however when you try to put them all together somehow there are 1 or 3 bits gone missing , somehow  you have been all messed up and it wasn’t even your fault  , you probably didn’t even see the bits get moved or nicked. How many times have you started planning  something , all goes nicely  until somehow just before the final bit drops into place Bang! Something  you did not plan for happens and all your lovely jigsaw pieces  get moved a bit or a lot and now you have to rearrange it all over again and hope like mad this time it all stays put. Crossing all your fingers and toes  and anything else you can get hold  of to cross you again set it all up and wait , this time all goes well and you achieve your goals.

Sometimes though if you are really , really lucky everything will go as planned and life for a while does what you hope it will with no big dramas  and you feel you can relax . Today though life has got so much more complicated and things happen you do not expect  or  you  can do nothing about , these are the times when you just want to strangle someone  , you get so stressed and wonder why , and how you can sort it all out again. Life has a funny way of giving you the unexpected , I think it does it just to stop things being boring , it matters not  how you feel life does what it does regardless of how you feel about it , as they say  ” it is what it is ” and you have to get on with it .  Well you may as well as griping about it wont help or fix anything you just have to adjust.

Let’s face it all you can do is as they say in the classics  ” pull up your big girls panties ”  and just move on , move on and reset direction , pretend it is a big computer game and just hit –control/alt/delete —  lol how well we all know these phrases now . Ok yes  I do know life just cannot be reset like a computer  no matter how much we might want  it to it just does not work like that * sigh * lol would make things easier though  wouldn’t it? Oh well like I said these days you just have to sit and do a mental  reset and start again, it takes time and patience to start again but doing that is way better than letting it get the better of you . Yes you might have to start from scratch you might even have to move house , move jobs, move a lot of things , but 1 thing for sure while you still have this  thing called life you have got hope and hope keeps us going .

Starting again is something  I have had to do many times and for many reasons  but I have not let it get the better of me ,  I just look around for the missing pieces  of my jigsaw and get moving again. Anyway  I now find it a challenge to get on with things rather than let the things get to me , for me it has been a real challenge  and also at times a lot of fun , I always try to find the funny side of things . Looking for the fun in this experience called life  is my way of dealing with frustration and challenges , lol and no this time I’m not talking about hubby . This time I am simply talking about all the things that make life more interesting and more challenging , well you wouldn’t want me to get bored would you ? lol I don’t want me getting  bored  either so looking for the funny things  in life stops the boredom  for me anyway .

 

My husband and I are having a serious fight. Do you think I should let him know about it?

Zippitydoodah… What on earth is a doo dah and how do you zip it?

To all you early risers out there…GO BACK TO BED….your making me look lazy.!!

 

Waiting ..

Waiting  …Have you ever noticed how much waiting we and the whole world does ? We wait  for people  , for things, for events , for weather , for so many things  I could not possibly put them all down here  so I will for 1 more time be waiting  ..lol .. So how do you go at waiting  ?  Do you like waiting  ? Are you too impatient to wait ? Do you see it as a challenge to have to wait  ? How long will you wait for something  ? Will you wait for days, months, years  for something ? Do you decide how long to wait or just  wait and see  ? How many times have you waited only to find out you didn’t really have to  ? You could  have had that thing or gone to that place without waiting , you find that out later then  how did you feel ? There is nothing more frustrating than waiting for something or somebody only to have it called off at the last minute , have you been there and done that  ? I know  I have and it is so annoying , lol almost as annoying as husbands can be , and that can be pretty annoying  lol  ( sorry dear ) Waiting it is something we do all day everyday when you think about it , we wait for our food to cook , for our car/bus/train/etc  to get us where we need to go  and think nothing of it as we are so used to it, we even have to wait for our coffee !! lol ..

Waiting is not an easy thing to do if what we are waiting for is important to us , how do you wait? Pace the floor, listen to music, watch TV, read a book ? So many different ways to wait what is your way of waiting ? All those appointments  we have to wait for , all those sales we have to wait for , all those holidays we have to wait for , all those shows and  sports events we wait for ? So how do you wait for these things to happen ? I have found by either getting on Twitter or  Faceache  will take my mind off the waiting quite nicely  thank you lol . These 2 social media applications alone can keep you so occupied you do not even note the waiting and next thing you know time’s up and the waiting is over. Either 1 of 2 things has happened  the time has caught up to you and you are now running late  or you were able to control yourself  just enough to still be ready on time ., either way the wait is finally over and now it is time to do whatever you were waiting for .

Waiting has  an effect on most people , some do not mind waiting some hate it and want to have everything done the minute they want it  with no waiting at all , and some  do not care and simply say to themselves  it will be worth it in the end so I will wait . Which 1 of these covers you  ? What things do you not mind waiting for and which  ones do you really hate to have to wait for ? Somethings are really , really worth waiting for  while others  drive you crazy as they take too long to get here , I  know how I feel if I know something really good  is coming up I hate the waiting  as  I know it is going to be great , but if  I am waiting for something say, like a visit to the doctor lol I do not mind  waiting for that to happen , coz after all who actually likes going to a doctor  ? Some people do but that’s not me rather  keep away thanks , lol, so that is 1 thing  I don’t care how long  I have to wait for , but for a good outing somewhere or a great show or sporting event those are things  I just hate having to wait for , just want to get there .

Somethings as  I said are well worth the wait no matter how long you have to wait but what if  what you have waited so long for suddenly is not happening ? There is nothing to my mind worse  than finding out , just when you are  almost there that the thing has been cancelled , I really hate that  and anything you do after that , though it  may be good  it never quite measures up  to the 1 that got cancelled . What  do you do in these cases  ? Some people  go right off and just go and get  drunk or something  , while others  just  sigh  and say oh well  maybe next time . Things like that are really hard to take especially if it is something you have waited  a very long time for  , and with some of these things  you have to book them months in advance  so it is a real let down to have them cancelled at the last minute. We can at least be thankful that cancellations are not common to most things  so the waiting is worth it in the end ,and we can just relax and learn to wait a little more  without  getting our knickers in a twist lol.

Waiting is not something  I like doing much  for shortish  periods  is ok but long time waiting is not my best like ,  don’t mind waiting for something  I’m cooking to be done for instance is ok , or waiting for a bus/train/etc  is also ok  but having to wait months for a show or a sports event  is something that I really do not like having to do  but will if it means I get to go . Waiting for someone you love  to arrive or  to do something is a whole new world of waiting  as you worry too much about them getting to you or getting  what they went out to get and get back safely , this kind of waiting is the hardest  because you love them , if love didn’t come into it , the waiting  would pass without any problems. Waiting …waiting…waiting …lol …always waiting  for something or someone , but on the bright side it usually ends up being a good wait  mostly and it is only our style of waiting  that makes a big difference . Anyway how would getting everything we wanted  when we wanted it  be in anyway good for us  ? Let’s face it  it would only make for even more  impatient  people  than there  there is now and there are way too many of them now  as  I see it , too many people rushing around  and just knocking you over if you get in the way . …Oh well we will see , see if we can relax  more  and just learn to enjoy the waiting as  I doubt there will ever  be a time when  we stop having to wait  for something  or someone . .. So how will you wait  ??

Things We Love To Do

Things we love to do  …. Just what things do you love to do  ? Go to the beach , go shopping, go travelling , or just spend quiet time at home alone , or spend it  with family ?  There are so many things we love to do I  just cannot fit them all in here , and of all the things we do how many of them involve other people and going out , or being  at home just doing what you want ? There are so many things  we like to do  it is hard to pick just 1 , we have times when we just like to stay home and be with each other , and there are times when we love to go out and meet up with other people. Depending on the time of day/night when we are doing things  helps us decide if we want to be with others or we do not , sometimes we wait till the last minute to make this decision.

How about you  ? Do you like to go out and be with others  or stay in and be alone ? Decisions , decisions, decisions , lol makes life interesting doesn’t it ? Getting away from  going out or not what else is there you  love to do  ? Cooking is 1 of my favourite  things to do , usually once a month to fill up the freezer  with meals to last for weeks , takes a whole day when I do it but I love to do it also it saves us a lot of money  which is another reason  I do it . Also love reading can spend hours  and hours doing this as it takes my mind off things that might be causing  a bit of worry , things  I cannot for the time being do anything about .  Something else  I really love doing is travelling it has been a while now since  I was able to but while  I was  I enjoyed it so much I sure do wish I could do more  of it. Only have to remember some of the places  I have been to and it starts the wishing to travel bug again *sigh * oh well maybe 1 day again.

Love going out to a nice place for a meal and just having  fun with friends  or just to a pub for a few drinks , wish it could happen more but what with his crazy work shifts  we hardly get out much at all really , but when we do we have fun as we know it is good to have fun once in a while . Been to some wonderful stage shows too and  they have been so much fun it made it a real pleasure to be there , yes it costs  a bit which is why we do not do it often but when we can we do , as again  I think it is good to get out of the home , work routine  for a while even just an hour or 2 to break the monotony . Sitting back just chilling ( to use a new expression these days  )  not doing anything but drinking coffee  and just thinking about life in general  it can be so very relaxing . Think to myself if more people did this  the world might actually be a bit better off  as people would be a little more friendly and not so uptight about everything.

So how about you  ? What do you love to do  ? Have  I mentioned any of them yet  ? realise there are way more things to enjoy  but of those above  do any of them  ring a bell with you ? We all need to have things  that we really love to do and that makes us relax and  makes us happy  as  I think we all need to just relax , have fun , have a giggle  to help keep us on the right path  to a stable lifestyle. Stable lifestyle  is something  i think we all need if we are to be happy , a lot of drama  or too much of it is surely not good for us and can only lead to trouble  1 way or another . Going fishing is another thing  that is just so relaxing  again I wish I could  go more often , just love the peace and quiet  and it is an added bonus if you actually catch a fish or 3 .

Things we love to do , if we did more of them and less of the stress related things , just imagine how much better we would feel as would the people around  us as we would be way more relaxed . More relaxed is how we need the world to be but sadly  I very much doubt it will happen and we need to enjoy what we can before it all goes down to the depths , which it will there is no doubt . Too many  of the so called leaders now are too intent on running the world and with it our lives too it is only a matter of time before it all breaks down totally. Wishing it would or could be otherwise   does not help at all no matter how hard we wish , untill/unless someone finds a way to stop the rot it will just keep on going .

So let us all just try a little bit harder to concentrate  on doing the things we love to do more often  so we can at least help the part of the world we live in , and help those around us to be a little more relaxed too then we will all benefit . When it all gets a bit much , do what  I do , say a little prayer , thank God , and  go out and go swimming or fishing or cycling or something that needs a lot of concentration  so you forget the things that worry you just for a while . The more you have to concentrate on the  swimming, fishing, cycling, running  anything like that  the less  time  you have to worry and after a while you do really just relax and enjoy , even for just an hour or 2 I find walking is what helps me a lot  when  I can do it , try to at least  2 or 3 times a week  or more if  I can.

 

I can no longer afford to be driven insane, I’m going to have to walk there…

 

I hate spelling errors so much. You mix up two letters and your whole post is urined….

Well Have You ?

Well have you  ? ……Have you ever just sat , looked around your home , the way you do things , what you have , what you have done over the years  ? Having done that , just sat and thought about it how did you feel ? Everytime  I do it I feel nothing but thankfulness  for  what  I have , what I have done , where I have been and so many ,many  more things , I know that  without  extraordinary  help that I have had from people and places  I would have done none of these things or been to any of these places , but my number 1 helper has always been God , he has always directed my path  that is why I am still alive to this day . A lot of people do not want to hear that but I am sorry it is the truth , so I will say it , I say it because I believe it and have seen it in my life .

How many things do you have today that you are thankful for ? Life , things, people , places ? There are just so many things we have and or do that we should be so thankful for  but with such a busy life these days who even has the time  to stop and sit down to think anymore  ? Think about when you do something for someone and when it is all done  doesn’t it feel so good if and yes sadly I say if  they at least say thank you ? Not everyone does that anymore unfortunately  but we should not let that stop us from doing the right thing even though it hurts when they do not. I put that down to 2 things  why they don’t  1. too rushed to realise they haven’t , 2. lack of respect  as no one teaches that anymore , I bet if you asked todays kids about respect  they would not have 1 clue as to what it means  as they are too used to having things their own way all their lives.

I sit and imagine what my life would be right now if  I did not have my hubby …lol yes he is a pest ( at times ) and yes he is the world’s best procrastinator or should that be worst ?   but without  him I would not even be here  and would not have the life  I have now. Let’s face it without his stalking we would never have got together   so he would not be here now annoying me all the time , lol , I did ask for it didn’t I when  I said yes  ? No T’s & C’s  to get me out of this , lol, bugga, never mind dear  I loves ya ( at the moment  ) lol Getting back to things to be thankful for is also the fact that we live in a country where you mostly do have a chance to improve  the things around  you whether it be people or places , mostly  we can change  what we do not like.

There are so many people in countries around the world that cannot even begin to improve things as they live in countries that are run by evil men who want to  run everyones lives and will stop at nothing until they get that . Matters not 1 bit to them if  they hurt or even kill people on the way to getting what they want , numbers of dead  do not worry them 1 little bit as they have already  made their minds up and nothing will change the way they think  and they will listen to no one . I have never ever worked out why they have to be like that , the phrase live and let live to them does not even exist  all that matters to them  is what they want, selfishness taken to extreme .

Things also to be thankful for is the fact that , unlike years gone by if we want to eat , we do not have to go out to hunt it ourselves, yikes! Can you imagine if we still had to do that  ? The danger people  would be to themselves would be the greatest risk I think  as they do not even take care of themselves sometimes much less anyone else . Thankfully we are really spoiled for choice all we need to do is go shopping at the shopping centres or just go online , we can go and get what we want when we want it  , no waiting  for animals or birds to come in range . If  I had to shoot my own meals ..lol we would not be eating much I would be a terrible shot , ever seen me near a dart board ? No ? Lol no and you never will as  I could not hit the broadside of a barn , lol and  as  I know this you all are safe  from me and darts. ( lucky aint you ?  lol )

Apart from that  which I have now saved you from  , there is the matter of clothing , if we could not even shoot our dinner  how would we get the skins or  wool ? We wouldn’t would  we ? lol be a bit cold  at times or a bit hot , so it is a great thing that once again we have  shopping and the internet so we can safely get what we need and leave the getting of same to those who do know how to do it , phew! lol. …Now what else is there  ? Oh yes  I know shoes !! We do need them if we like wearing them or not  I for 1 hate shoes but realise there are times , like when you go shopping  , lol, that you do need to wear them , unless you are shopping online then clothing, shoes etc is optional. lol…Just be thankful that also is something  that  I just saved you from …

I love being married. It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life…

 

Uranus was the first planet discovered with a telescope. I didn’t know planets had telescopes….

Books

Books …   Do you like books  ? Do you like to read  ? I love to read and will do so  as much as possible  I would be what people  would call a bookworm as once  I do get into a book not much else matters  and  I can tune out the world totally. What about  you ? Do you read  every single chance you get  ? Do you sometimes let other things go that you should be doing just to sneak some reading time out of a busy day  ? That would be me in spades when I am on a book binge as  I call it  , just love to sneak away from the things that  I should be doing if I have not already done them and get into reading. Ever been so into a book you are reading that you forget to maybe have a drink , have something to eat because the book is too good to put down  ? I have done this so many times it is not funny if a book is good enough then putting it down becomes too hard to do you want to just keep going  till you finish .This practice can get into a lot of trouble lol as  I have found out before today .

What kind of books do you like  ? There are so many genres  to choose from aren’t there these  days? It is so very hard to choose what book to read , Detective, Fantasy   , Romance , Travel , Poetry , Etc, Etc, there are just so many types to choose from  which in 1 way is a good thing for those that love to read  but the actual choosing is the fun part , well it is for me anyway . Ever walked into a bookshop or a library and just stood there almost with your mouth open at the amount and variety there is displayed in front of you ? Then you wonder how out of all these books are you going to find just 1 or 2 or whatever  that you would like to read  , the mind almost goes into melt down as there is just so much to pick from , it can be mind blowing just trying to make a decision . It can take just ages and ages to pick the book/books  you want because you do not want to make a mistake. Taking too long to make a decision can also get you into trouble lol yes as  I too have found out when book shopping with someone else  , so I now do it alone it’s safer that way lol.

Favourite book for me and 1  I reach for first every day has got to be The Bible just love it  and  I find it comforting  to me , and helps me day by day. Next would be good  detective  novels if they have a good plot and are written well, then would have to be a certain kind of fantasy the 1 I like the most is the Piers  Anthony  series called  the  Xanth series I  have all of them so far , all of these kinds of books apart from The  Bible  are what  I use to relax , escape and  enjoy the puns , as this series is full of puns and you have to like them to even think about reading this series. Never ever been 1 to read  so called romance  novels  they just do nothing for me but I do know a lot of people use these for escapism  the same way I use  the  Xanth series  if it helps them all to the good then as we all need a way to relax and chill at times. Life is just so frenetic  and violent these days that a way to relax and unwind is almost essential .

Where would we be without the book and the ability to read  ?  Life  I dare say would be horribly boring  if we could not read , so I salute the person or people  who came up with the way to read and write  because without them as with anyone who invented something  we use everyday without thinking  thank you  . Without the ability to read we could not use the internet, phones , news papers , etc,etc, and how boring that would make life  also what would we do then ? Even those who invented all the other things we use all the time had to know how to read and how to read books to give them new ideas or nothing would have got done would it  ? We should also thank the teachers that taught us how to read and write and spell , also thanks for whoever invented spell checker too as they must have seen the need for it ,makes you wonder what gave them the clue that 1 was so badly needed  ?

So the  really when you stop and think about it just how civilised  would we be if it hadn’t been for the ability  to read and write ? How else would all the instructions  that were needed get passed on  to those who needed them ? Without  those instructions  we would not have known what to do and when to do it or  how to do it  , so 1 more time we need to be thankful for the ability to read and for books to carry those instructions around with us , as we had to have them in a way that they could be taken from place to place. So without books we would almost certainly not be as educated or intelligent  as we are today , nor would we be able to do as much as we now can , and  I would not be sitting here writing this  on a computer  which most likely would  not have been invented.

I know something that you don’t! 😉 Oh wait you do know! But you don’t know that I know.

 

People are always asking whats the meaning of life, why don’t they just look it up in the dictionary. Duh!!!!

Jobs

Jobs ….. Almost everyone at some time in their life has had a job of some kind, a part time job , a full time  job, or a once off job , but 1 way or another most of us have had a job at 1 point. Now before anyone gets upset I will say right here and right now that to my mind the hardest job of all , even though it is a job of love is raising  children . This is a job where you as a parent are on site 24/7  until the child/children are of an age to fend for themselves and make their own decisions. To me this is also a job that is number 1 and is also a job that  goes for a lifetime as no matter how old your children get they are still your ” children ”  and you will always see them that way no matter how old you are or they are  it is just a fact of life and you will always be there for them.

Within this blog though I am covering the jobs that people do that we do not even  know about or acknowledge  simply because they are the kind of jobs that no one sees people doing . Starting off with the scientists , you never see them but they put in very long hours so you and me can have the best of things. Then there are what is called , lol, yes they even made a  TV show called this ” The IT Crowd ”  while that was a comedy in real life it is not such a comedy as these people  maintain our lifestyle  in a lot of ways , they send all the goods we need to the shops , they make the petrol pumps work, they keep the  TV channels going , the keep hospitals going  . Even though we do not see them or know what they are doing  we would sure know about it if they stopped . Basically they keep the world running while there is power to run it and they do a splendid job as each time we go to the store we can get what we came in for because they made the machines work to get the goods there .

Think about all the different types of jobs there are , go on try for just a few mins try and think of just how many jobs there are that need doing  , they think about what types of jobs there are  and how many types there are , got a headache  yet  ? lol . Like  I said there are so many and so many types it would be impossible to put them all down in just 1 article , so if you have a job , no matter if you love it or hate it, in this day and age just be very thankful that you have it , as so many cannot even get 1 job let alone  any more not even part time jobs. There might be a whole lot of different types of jobs , and maybe a whole lot of jobs going but not everyone can do what is on offer where they live , these days getting a job is not easy , especially if you are not a really skilled person.

Feel so sorry for those who cannot find a job or who have to quit work for 1 reason or another  as now you can no longer be the independent  person you once were , same thing happens when you get married , lol, now you got to work with someone else  lol (sorry dear ) but it is true . We by the time we get to the stage in life where work is mainly what we do to support ourselves  we get very used to being independent  that if something happens to stop that , then we really can feel quite lost . After who knows how many years of looking after yourself all of a sudden  there is no job , so out the window goes all your feelings of security  and you wonder what on earth  you will do now .

Looking for jobs now is a whole new ball game compared  to what it used to be , at 1 time you just went for an interview  and you either got the job there and then or you didn’t , not like it is today when most of it is online and you may not know for ages whether you got it or not . Some places want you to send in all this stuff with you qualifications  on it and a lot of personal stuff that you never had to worry about when getting a job before. Now that we are in the so called enlightened era  or maybe the computer era  even getting a simple job is made so very hard , way harder than it ever used to be , just glad  I no longer need to go through all this , yes thankfully I could do it if needed but sure glad  I don’t have to, just glad to be able to leave it to the younger ones I did my share  lol.

Jobs …If you have 1 hang onto it as nowadays  there are so many people out there looking for a job that if you screw up there are literally hundreds more that will gladly take your job and put you right out. Having a job these days is a bonus and a must  if you want to even have  some kind of a life , or any kind of independance  to do what you want to do with your life the way you want to . Think about all the things you do and have today that will all be done with if you lose the job , it would be a life changing  thing and not very pleasant at all , keeping your job  is so very important now more so than ever . World  changes have made being able to not work , unless you are rich  an impossibility as you then cannot look after yourself as you need to.

I think I’m gonna put my scales on a diet, they keep putting on weight!

I am confused… I’m not sure why I’m confused but i am confused about being confused… and that makes me more confused… is that confusing or what?
