THIS IS

JUST ME



“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
¯ William W. Purkey

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

THE TRUE HUMANITY
I wish I could take every homeless, hurt and crying animal home and give them all the love they deserve to have. I wish I could feed them all, nurture them all to become the animals they were born to be. I wish that everyone that ever hurt an animal or treated it in a bad way would feel for what they have done. but humans are not like that. hurting animals gives them pleasure, makes them feel strong because the creature is defenceless and cannot do anything except cry. Humanity likes to believe itself the best on the planet, the strongest because what they have achieved, but it doesn't think of the consequences of its actions, what some will do to feel this power. May they feel suffering for every creature that feels pain, whether they inflicted it or not. may humanity learn before it is too late, and may it not be at to the life of a defenceless creature that wants love and acceptance as much as them.
My blog hasn't been published yet, I can't wait until it is!
It's holidays and I've been keeping busy. . .Taking the dogs for walks, shopping, visiting friends, etc. It was raining yesterday, but today there are a few fluffy clouds, light blue sky and a dark blue sea. The mountains aren't clear, but that is probably mist that will burn off later.


Had waffles and coffee this morning. Mmm. . .
Not everyday we get that!
So true!

40 visits as of this morning. Still no comments. I wonder what is going through your mind as you are reading this. What you think of that you have just seen.
Maybe something off this blog, away from where you are sitting, has influenced you, troubled you, made you happy. Anything could happen. Might happen. But you can choose what will happen. Maybe not the cause, but your reactions to it. Maybe what you do will influence a cause. What will sitting here ,writing this, do to me? To you? Will it be a massive change a long time in the future, or a small change tomorrow?

Mom is out at a movie premier tonight. Just me and my brother. It is so quiet.
I am happy! 61 visits. Yay! What do you think of my essays? Please tell me, give suggestions, preferences, I would appreciate it all!:)
Oh, and Micayla is a friend. She had to move away and hasn't been able to visit in a year!:(I miss her so much!

I want to write something. Everything. But how do I put it into words? My thoughts are mainly pictures. Imaginings. . .I am fascinated by how the mind works. What are thoughts. How can we feel emotional about them if they are just electric pulses in our brain. It is amazing that we are part of this. It is who we are, and yet we know so little about it. . .maybe it is meant to be secret. There is no code. And is was there before we even thought about decoding it. . .

If you like me, tell me, If you miss me, show me. If you love me, prove it. . .
Love is a friendship set on fire.

Il cuore mio vuole soltanto te

Had an amazing sunrise this morning! And it was really cold. . .I love cold weather with hot chocolate and blankets. . .:)

. . .L'amore che ti do. . .

It is a beautiful day with a few clouds, sort of how I feel. I have cleared my mind, my heart, but there are always those spots that cannot be cleared. . .but they are nice spots because if it was completely cleared it would be empty, lonely. .
. . .L'amore che non sai. . .

This year is going so fast. Nothing lasts very long. NOTHING! Maybe that's good. I would go mad if it went any slower, but there are a few a wish would last a little longer. But I've let go now. I have freed you and me. Thank you for this learning experience. . .
Mi guordo e trovo un vuoto.
but perhaps that is good. it has taught me to let go. . .

So much has happened. . .so much to take in. Thank you to all my wonderful friends that are always there;....., you have taught me so much! xoxoxo
Ma tutto sembra normale a voi

Winter holidays now.....a much needed break!
Exams went well. I did better in chemistry than I thought I would but that has given me extra strength for next term!!


04/07/2012
Cold, rainy and windy today. I'm wearing a new pair of mohair socks I got...very warm!:)
There's a place out of town where we got the mohair things. There are angora goats there and they are soo cute! But the biggest one is such a bully...I just ignore him and feed the babies (I think baby goats are kids, but I can't remember)


05/07/2012
Still cold, but did I expect anything else? I'm not doing very much this holiday. It's been almost 2 weeks and I've seen my friends once...although I did see Dona twice...we went to the beach with her dogs:)I've also been playing Minecraft A LOT!!! My house is coming on well. I finished the roof today and now I just need to find a place from my furnace. Then I will set up a proper mine and Gooi Mielies!!!(Its an inside joke:P)
Goodnight!xoxo





when nothing goes right...

go left.

It is just you? Your problems. Your sadness. Do you think that anyone else is going through troubles? That they need comfort as much as you do. How do you think? How do you live? What motivates you? The thought of a personal reward? The knowledge that someone else is worse off than you? Or do you give into despair? It is the dream of psycologists to get into someone's mind. To understand them completely. But there is so much hidden. So many secrets. But why keep all that to themself? Why not share the problems? Is it guilt? Are they ashamed? But what is there to be ashamed of? Society says we all make mistakes. Society also judges us. So what are we then free to do? We know our mistakes will not be put past us. Society says 'Express yourself. Be who you are!'. So why is there competition? If you be who you truly are, then why is the competition judged on only one strength? Should it not embrace all strengths?

I HAD A BEAUTIFUL BLOG GOING ALONG INCLUDING, ALONG WITH "My Blog" AND "My Writings", A TAB CALLED "THOUGHTS". ON IT THERE WERE INSPIRATIONAL SONG LYIRICS AND QUOTES. THERE WERE ALSO SOME STUNNING PICTURES THAT I GOT FROM FRIENDS THAT TOOK THE PHOTOS AND OCCASIONALLY GOT FROM A WEBSITE, LIKE FACEBOOK WHICH I DO NOT HAVE. ALSO THERE WAS A PICTURE I WAS PROUND OF. IT WAS A SOLDIER READING A STORY BOOK TO HIS CHILD OVER SKYPE. I SENT A FRIEND TO LOOK AT MY BLOG AND ALAS, SHE CLAIMED THERE WERE NO SONGS LYRICS OR TOUCHING PHOTO OF A SOLDIER. SO I GO ON AND THERE IS NOTHING! ALL THE HOURS I HAD SPENT TYPING OUT SONG LYRICS, DECORATING QUOTES, MATCHING BACKGROUND COLOURS WITH IMAGES, GONE. BUT THERE IS A MESSAGE FROM THE WEBMASTER~ "I had to delete the "THOUGHTS" part, because all text was copied/pasted from the web. It's forbidden!" WELL MAY GOD FORBID HIM/HER FROM HEAVEN FOR RUINING SOMEONES ESCAPE FROM THE MESSED UP WORLD SHE LIVES IN, AND MAY THE DEVIL FORBID HIM/HER FROM HELL, SO HE/SHE WILL REMAIN A WONDERING, LOST SOUL FOREVER!!

I was wondering. If I filled this entire blog with "things already on the web", would the 'webmaster' delete this entire blog?........Webmaster, what is your view on this?

01/09/2012
Reply from webmaster: in that case, your entire blog would be unpublished. Everybody know the rules and everybody must follow them. Sorry for the inconvenience.

01/09/2012
That would be fair....But there are many fan related blogs that are published. Where would those people have gotten pictures and facts on the subject of their blog other than the internet??? And they put song lyrics on from their favourite band/singer. So why can I not put inspirational song lyrics onto my blog? And what about quotes? I can't change quotes that were said by other people.

02/09/2012
Well, this rule concerns text only. About pictures, you are supposed to have owner's authorization. I will not verify it. I guess it's ok. Quotes are welcome, provided you write them yourself. About song lyrics, please, no more than 1 or 2... except if you write your own song lyrics from your own inspiration! Why not?

02/09/2012
Again look at blogs about singers or bands!!! There are many pictures that were more than likely copied from a website!! And more than 1 or 2 songs on there!!!
The songs I used are from artists that are not very well known, and they sing about amazing things - like the one about racism in South Africa is actually a very old song that was resung in 2006, and the one I was about to put on about a soldier going through Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and how his wife has to take care of the family with a husband that thinks about suicide. And the one about a king that captures a beautiful woman (that represents mother nature, or the world around us). She says she will marry him only if he doesn't hunt animals just for prizes but he can't accept that so he keeps her in a tower in the forest just so he can look at her beauty all day...These are songs that make you think. And why can I not use quotes that were said by othere people? They were said for the world to hear, so why can I not put them on a blog that will be read by younger people and therefore exposing these younger people to something that otherwise they might not have cared less about? The same applies to the songs.
And the quotes that are written on top of pictures were done by a friend of mine. She is more than happy to share them with the world, on a site not only facebook.
I understand the other pictures, like the pretty one of a sunset in Singapore. I just put it on because it was so amazing, but I should have put the sunset picture I took from my own back garden (actually back veranda). But the one of the soldier reading a story book to his child over skype? And Nadia Comaneci on beam with the quote I typed beneath it "To achieve the impossible, one must think the absurd; to look where everyone else has looked, but to see what no-one else has seen"~Unknown. And the quote further on "You cannot find peace by avoiding life"~Virginia Woolf. All that was there to show that "It's impossible" is never a plausible answer!!
And the bit about the reality of Fear: You're not scared of the dark. You're scared of what's in it. Etc. and the dictionary's meaning of fear I got: n.~an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain or harm. I then typed: So what does it mean to not feel fear?
I don't understand how you will let a blog about fashion tips and the lastest Boy-Band secrets be, but not a blog that was intended to make the unruly youth of today stop and think that there is more to life than what length their shorts should be. That songs don't have to be about one night flings. To think that songs can have emotion and that there is someone in the world brave enough to put those songs and quotes in a place filled with average teenagers and make them leave with more in their minds than what their favourite singers dating related turn-ons are.
IF THAT IS YOUR ATTITUDE AS IS THE ATTITUDE OF MOST OF THOSE OUT THERE, I CRY FOR FOR YOU. WHAT HAS HUMANITY DONE TO ITSELF?

03/09/2012
That's because of search engine's rules: unfortunally, search engines don't mind if your text is interesting or not. If your text can be found on several thousands other webpages, then all blogs may be penalyzed. So that's why I take care about this problem.

Ok, I got a solution: you can publish any song you like... not in text format, but in PICTURE format. Is this solution ok for you?


How do I do a song in picture format?

07/09/2012
Oh, ok: you have to copy & paste the text in "Paint" (do you know "paint" program?).
1- if you can see the text on your screen, then you only have to press the "PrtScr" key to copy it as a picture.
2- Open your "paint" program, and then, select "edit-paste" to paste it into Paint.
3- All your screen in now included in "paint" as a large picture. So select your song text only, using your mouse. Then, select "edit-copy". Then, open another "Paint" window and select "Edit-Paste".
4- Save this picture. Remark : select "JPG" format!

WELL... there is an easier way....

1- open "Paint" program
2- click on the "A" tool (can you see it in the top page?): it allows you to write text in your picture area.
3- select a large rectangle in this picture area (using your mouse)
4- copy and paste your text in this area
5- Save it as picture in "JPG" format
I wish the thoughts stil existed. It was my refuge when my mom and I had an arguement. I would spend time choosing a song or quote and then more time putting it on. Dividing the songs verses up to put pictures next to them of the right size. And time changing the font, or background colour of the quotes. Doing this calmed me down. Because I had to concentrate on it and not on the arguement. Now we just had a screaming match. I think the gardener was scared. But now the only thing for me to do is Maths homework. Or this passage I am writing which is not helping. But I can't think of what else I would right about. Or I could leave and carry on crying at my desk. i don't know which is worse. Why my blog??? ANSWER ME!!!! ANSWER ALL MY QUESTIONS IN THE ABOVE CELL!! WHY ME AND NOT THE GOSSIP!!! WHY ME AND NOT THE BLOGS ABOUT GAMING OR DATING????
I love writing. Writing is a doorway into my soul. The way that I can shape characters, but not use them to my own ,almost selfish advantage, seems like life in a way. I do not like it when writers use other characters to the hero/heroine's advantage. And so often the main character will represent some part of the writer themselves. I take it then that the writer wishes to experience power. I understand that the writer must have a measure of control over the characters, as it is the writer who is to create the story. Like a shepherd, the writer must be a leader to the characters, so thay do not stray and become lunch to a hungry wolf, but also letting them venture, find an interesting path. Maybe they will stumble on a patch of sweet, deep green grass that will give the story a twist that is a delight to the writer and then readers of the story.
