More Than Passing Judgement

Writing 101, Day Seventeen: Your Personality on the Page– What are you scared of? Address one of your worst fears. If you’re up for a twist, write this post in a style that’s different from your own. This isn’t a fear as such, it is something that bothers me.

Wherever I go there will be someone that dislikes me,

I’m judged even before I utter a word and I honestly don’t have time to care,

I won’t lose any hair or shed a tear,

We all make passing judgements; I’ve done my fair share,

It’s the fact that people pretend to like me that I cannot bear,

Keep the conversation to a minimum; give me a second glance or stare,

I think that would be pretty fair,

It’s closed mindedness and hate that is spread for invalid reasons that I fear,

When someone establishes their hate for someone and the reason behind it is invalid or unclear,

You talk to someone for a minute and all of a sudden they are hated,

There’s me thinking this type of behaviour was out dated,

I first came across this behaviour when I was in school,

Its funny how so many of my peers thought it was cool,

Now that I’m older it seems people have only become bolder,

Take the time to get to know me and maybe you will understand my point of view,

If you don’t like me its okay; I wish you well with whatever you do,

I do not live my life to be rated or dwell on being hated by a few.

5 Tips For Getting Your Motivation (Mojo) Back 

Writing 101, Day Sixteen: Serial Killer III– Imagine you work in a place where you manage lost or forgotten items. What might you find in the pile? I took an alternative approach for this assignment…

1. Reevaluate your goals 
Over time things change, we change. The things we once wanted turn into the unwanted. There’s no point convincing ourselves that we want the unwanted, dig a little deeper and start over if you need to.

2. Talk to someone 
I have friends that allow me to vent and vice versa. I never feel like I’m being judged by them; they listen, advise and encourage me. Reach out to someone in your life that fits the bill.

3. Write your feelings down 
6 months down the line you may feel like you’re losing your motivation again. Use your diary to understand how you felt and how you worked towards getting your motivation back. It’s not dwelling on the past; it’s reminding yourself how far you’ve come and helping to get you back on track.

4. Write your goals in list form
I made a bucket list and posted it. I have more goals which I have elsewhere for personal reasons. Glance over your list regularly, imagine you are about to perform your favourite song on stage and keep repeating your list to yourself.

5. Picture it
You can make your own collage for your bedroom or pretty much anywhere! Wherever you are you can look at all the beautiful things you desire. Pinterest is a great app to use; I dabble in it when I’m on the go.

And if you still can’t find your Mojo, you can share mine 😀

The Day I Found My Mojo

Writing 101, Day Thirteen: Serial Killer II Write about finding something. For your twist, view day four’s post and today’s post as installments in a series. 

Read my Day Four post here

Mojo found his way back to me in no time, he never let’s me down! I woke up feeling like myself again and when I looked over my shoulder he was right there beside me. Coincidentally my insomnia has been cured!

Mojo bought me a box of my favourite chocolates, unfortunately I cannot eat chocolate anymore. Nevertheless I’m happy to have my motivation back, now its time to go in for the kill!!

The Wednesday Vegetarian

Writing 101, Day Ten: HappyTell us about your favorite childhood meal — the one that was always a treat, that meant “celebration,” or that comforted you and has deep roots in your memory.

Every Wednesday my Primary School lunch was a ‘Traditional roast’; a slice of turkey, roast potatoes, vegetables and gravy. It was my least favorite meal to be honest!

~A plate full of memories! 
??????????

On Wednesdays I would always be prepared with my game face when approaching the lunch counter. I would walk up to the dinner lady and ask for macaroni and cheese, she would glance down at me and ask if I was a vegetarian. I responded with a convincing ‘Yes’, well today I am I would think to myself and it worked like a charm!

My parents wouldn’t have condoned my slight twist of the truth, but what does a girl have to do to get a slice of her favourite pie? There was more than enough for the vegetarian’s along with fellow mac and cheese lovers like myself! I can’t recall what accompanied the mac and cheese, it could have been served with a pencil eraser for all I know! All I saw on my plate was a heap of creamy heaven…Mac and cheese over my school’s roast any day!

If I could eat mac and cheese every other day I would, but I know its no good for my health! My brother sure does make a mean mac and cheese these days.

Self-Love Vs. Self-Hatred

Writing 101, Day Seven: Give and TakeWrite a post based on the contrast between two things — whether people, objects, emotions, places, or something else.

Self-Love= SL
Self-Hatred= SH

SL: I look beautiful today! My skin is glowing!
SH: Who am I trying to kid? My skin looks terrible!
SL: Maybe I’ll wear the new dress I purchased yesterday.
SH: Second thoughts I don’t want to draw any attention to myself.
SL: I don’t care what anyone thinks! Every spoil is a style.
SH: I wonder what people will think of me if I wear it.
SL: As long as I’m comfortable that’s all that matters!
SH: I think I’ll wear jeans and a t-shirt instead that way no one will notice me. I’m returning the dress.

SL: The world is my oyster, there are so many possibilities!
SH: Ugh my life sucks, I was born unlucky!
SL: I know my capabilities and strengths, I will go far!
SH: I have so many weaknesses, I’m never going to get where I want to be.
SL: This job is right up my street! I’m going for it!
SH: Why would they choose me? There’s probably someone better suited.
SL: You know what; I love being me! I’m not perfect, but I will always try my hardest to better myself.
SH: I wonder what it would feel like to be someone else for a day. Things never go my way, I give up!
SL: If I can’t love myself, how can I expect anyone else to?

The Perfect View

Writing 101, Day 2: Just A View If you had the power to get somewhere — anywhere — where would you go right now?

Would you believe me if I said I’d never been on a plane before? I can’t believe it myself! I’m longing to get on a plane and this year I’m making it happen. I’m far from nervous about jumping on a plane. The destination is irrelevant, I would be happy just stepping foot on a one!

I can only imagine how it feels to be high in the sky and glancing down at the breathtaking view.

Once the plane lands; I’d slowly walk down the stairs and then I’d find a convenient spot to compose myself. I would stand still for a few moments; taking in long deep breaths as I questioned whether or not I was still asleep.

I can only dream right now…Get me on a plane ASAP! Right after I get some sleep! My body is exhausted, my mind is restless, yet my hands are still able to type away…

Insomnia, what did I ever do to you?

A Letter To The Unknown

Writing 101, Day 5: Be Brief You discover a letter on a path that affects you deeply. Today, write about this encounter.

I quickly turned around to see if I could catch a glimpse of the person that had left the letter behind, but there was no one around. I carefully read through the letter as I tried to figure out who could have possibly sent it.

The letter wasn’t addressed to anyone using a specific name; the sender hadn’t signed their name and they didn’t leave any contact details either. Perhaps the sender didn’t want to reveal their identity and they were afraid of the response?

Perhaps the recipient darted off in disperse after being taken aback by the content in the letter and left it behind? I wonder how the recipient is coping right now, I can’t imagine how they must be feeling! How do I trace either of these people? I have so many questions and there’s no one present to answer them.
