I’m at a Wedding!

Hi!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing a different side of this blog while I am trying to branch out my knowledge and learn about different cultures and their politics. If you missed any of these posts, I’ll link them here: 2018 North Korea – US Summit (Preview!), Trumps Press Conference (North Korea Summit)!, G7 Summit (Overview!).

The reason for this current post however, is that I am at a wedding while you are reading this, so I have not managed my time overly well in that the post you are getting today, is a preview post for next week! I asked in World News! if anyone had anything in there country they thought I should look up / read about and then condense for you guys.  (That idea is always open, if you ever have a topic that you want me to write about, send it on!)

So, next week, I have 3 topics in mind right now that I will publish with you guys, so here they are:

  • A review on the history of Israel / Palestine and / or, the current climate over there! (I keep hearing about wars, deaths and such, but they go over my head as I know nothing about what is exactly going on, so I want to find out!)

These next 2 topics were recommended to me by 2 of my readers, for which, I am beyond thankful! I love receiving requests, it makes me feel very important…..

  • How has America become the #1 Racist country in the world?
  • Have Americans lost a sense of Patriotism?

What’s your opinion on this topics? Do you have an opinion? Please let me know you’re view in the comments and I can then take them into consideration when writing the post! As I am Irish my viewpoints may end up being skewed.

Thanks for reading this and if you do choose to respond on this post or via my social media which is located below, it may take 24 hours to reply due to my attendance at the wedding!

I hope you have a good weekend.

I NEED YOUR HELP!

Hi!

Ok, so many of you probably know by now, I am a student in college and am doing a thesis.

The problem with that is, I need people to complete a survey for me. That’s where you (the reader) come in! I have to find people to respond to a survey for my thesis, so I was hoping if you came across this post that you could follow the link and do it 🙂 Please share it with anyone you are friends with, work with / met somewhere that one time as it would help me out greatly! 

It should take about 6 minutes according to the website where I made it, so not too bad! (I hope…..) 

If you manage to take the survey, I appreciate it a lot, thank you 🙂 

The link to the survey is here: https://mubusiness.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_25JRsP5NuQHwo0B

Youtube – Help!

Hi!

After weeks of talking about it, we have launched our Youtube channel link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCE-cg9HxQi4yo_BR3Rt7snQ

I would appreciate it if you could check out the channel and give us some feedback regarding what you like and dislike about what we have done 🙂 (The first video is only 4 minutes long, so it won’t take too long!)

If you have a Youtube channel and would like to collaborate or have any advice on things that we could do different, it would be amazing!

I apologise for the short post today, but it is a Friday, so I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy yourself!

Mystery Blogger Award

Hi!

It has been a while since I wrote one of these! (Probably because I became lazy..). Anyway, if you enjoy reading this type of thing I will leave a link to a couple of other award here photogrid_1476365612975

Rules:

1: Put the award logo/image on your blog

2: List the rules

3: Thank whomever nominated you and provide a link as well

4: Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well.

5: Tell your readers three things about yourself.

8: Ask your nominees any five questions of your choice with one weird or funny question.

9: Share a link to your best post

Shoutout to the main man Ross for the nomination in this award! Have to say, the way in which Ross writes just puts a smile on my way and irrespective of the topic, continues to be an enjoyable read for me 🙂 Creator of the Mystery Blogger Award is Okoto Enigma check out her lifestyle and travel blog here.

Things you don’t know

Let’s see, I’ve to come up with 3 things you don’t know about me, this is tough…..

  1. Every time I have ever left the country and gone on holiday I have gotten myself an injury. But not a normal injury which can happen to anyone, I walk into poles. Every damn time since I was about 9. I am now 22, it is still an occurrence.
  2. I do my best to read a new book every 4 days. The type of book can vary, be it fiction, motivational, philosophical or academic, I strive to read as many and as often as I can.
  3.  I have an iPod, iPad and a MacBook. But my phone is Android. Despite the fact that they run opposite operating systems (obviously…). On a device I carry around daily, I prefer the use of a Samsung over an iPhone!

 

Questions

If you could introduce a new law into the world what would it be?

Hmm, this is intriguing, as a former law student, there are plenty of laws I have come across which I have personally disagreed with. I don’t think a new law is something that would interest me due to the inability to know how effective it would be. I would rather see a stricter enforcement of the laws which are currently in place. Lengthening the time in jail for some crimes and ensuring the length of time is served for others.

If you could have any job in the world what would you do?

Oh! Here are 2 answers, 1 practical and 1 which I would love to see happen.

I would return to Law and become a lawyer then work for those who may not be able to afford legal services, in an attempt to give a voice to the minority around us.

Alternatively, I would love to continue posting on this and going to Youtube to post videos. The reason for this, is I would love to motivate and inspire people to change their lives around and help them to become more.

What is your favourite mythical creature or monster?

Vampire or Werewolf!

With no warning the world turns into a Wasteland and the three items in front of you will help you survive – what are they and how do you fancy your chances?

Dear Lord, how did you even come up with this?! My 3 items are:

  • Water
  • Knife
  • My bag

I have a feeling I might not last to long! But I have a bag to store other items in which goes quite well, water to remain hydrated and a weapon to fend off attackers. However, my ability to defend myself probably is lacking to a significant level. I give myself 2 hours until I get hungry….

What do you fear most?

An inability to help others and committing to things. They go hand in hand here as helping people usually involves some form of commitment! So, I sorta need to get that sorted don’t I?!

Delay! (Opportunity for Followers!)

Hi!

So, if you follow me on Twitter you may have noticed I was having a few small issues with my keyboard on my Mac early January. I contacted Apple who went through some steps with me and it “fixed” itself (On occasion, it would stop working but overall was ok!)

But yesterday I turned my Mac on and my keyboard and trackpad / mouse just stopped working. I had to plug in an external keyboard and mouse so I could save my files onto a hard drive and a USB! Again, I contacted Apple and they directed me onto one of their affiliate companies in ROI. A quick google search told me that it is likely my battery has dislodged itself and is rubbing off some wire that allows keyboard usability. So contacting the repair shop, I was quoted €350 to fix it……

So, I am now without a laptop and I don’t have an desktop and my office is closed right now. As such, my only access to WordPress is via my phone for the moment :/ But, this has brought forward something I was going to wait until I had more followers and engagement was better for others to become interested.

Now, onto the opportunity for you, the reader! I want to feature some of the posts from you that I found interesting and that I think my other readers want to see and I would love to collaborate with you. If you are reading this and you have a post you would like me to share or you have a topic that you would like to write with me get in contact!

My Instagram and Twitter links are below so I would love for you to let me know what interests you and if you would like to work with me.

I have 8 quotes scheduled for the coming days but that’s it, no normal posts unfortunately so that is why I am looking for your help 🙂

Thank you to Shannon Cora for the nomination! (You should check her out!)

The rules of the Sunshine Blogger Award are as follow:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you in the blog post and link back to their blog.
2. Answer the eleven questions the blogger asked you.
3. Nominate eleven new blogs to receive the award and write them eleven new questions.
4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or in your blog.

These are my answers to Shannon’s Questions:

  • What is the inspiration for your blogging niche?

I don’t really think I have a niche being honest. At this stage, it feels as though I just write whatever comes to mind! (I hope youse don’t mind…..)

  • If money wasn’t an issue what would you be doing?

Right now, money isn’t an issue! So I am doing what I want. I lecture part-time, am a student, work with social enterprises and get to read!

  • What are your hobbies?

I read, blog, do assignments and on occasion I get to the gym / run.

  • What are your near-future goals?

To decide whether I am going to pursue a PHD or go get a “real” job!

  • Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I would love to be lecturing in some foreign country after finding people I want to have around for the remainder of my life!

  • What can you not live without?

Books, 100%. I hadn’t really read in a while, but now I’m back to reading a book every 2 days!

  • What are your main values in life?

Honesty. All I want is people to be honest with me! If you have a problem, just lemme know! Better than forever wondering.

  • Who inspires you/motivates you?

Fear of failure!

  • What would you write in your “day in the life of…” blog?

I get up, (hopefully get to the gym), come back, eat breakfast and take my meds. Usually go to college, find a spot in the library and hole up for hours on end! Then get home, watch youtube and cook dinner.

(I swear my life comes across so monotonous here. I guess it probably is!)

  • What niche types of blogs/social media accounts are you looking to follow?

If someone has a unique voice and is interesting to read, I would follow them! What exactly their content is, doesn’t matter a whole lot to me 🙂

  • Tea or Coffee?

I don’t drink tea or coffee!

The Liebster Award!

Hi!

Firstly, thank you to Ella for this nomination! She has just started blogging so you should go give her some support if you are looking for new content to read 🙂

The Liebster award is an idea that promotes engagement between bloggers and allows bloggers to celebrate one another through nominations and creative questions.

What next…

All you have to do is Link to The Official rules of 2018 in your blog post.

Answer the questions provided by your nominator.

Create more questions for your nominees to answer(trying to be as creative as possible) & Nominate of course.

Finally comment a direct link to your Liebster Award blog post (here)to make it easier for Global Aussie to read all of the submissions.

My questions to Answer! 

1. What inspires you most in the world and why does it inspire you? 

I am inspired and motivated by a fear of failure and the thoughts that I am meant to do more. It sounds a bit silly as I write it, but I never want to feel as though I could have done better at something, so this is the only way for me to ensure that doesn’t happen!

2. What is your biggest accomplishment in your life so far?

I can’t say for certain being honest. I know others would say the degrees I have gotten from college are accomplishments but I am yet to view them that way!

3. What is your biggest goal for your life to come?

I would love to live in another country for a period of time. But, I don’t know if that is something that will come to fruition!

4. What are you most passionate about? 

Helping others.

5. If you were an animal, what would it be? 

Penguin

6. What is your favourite quote?

I can’t pick one… I post quotes on a daily basis and spend so much time reading / looking them up, I really can’t decide on one!

7. Why do you blog? 

It was because I had a lot of time on my hands, now it is for the interaction that I have with others and on occasion getting comments about how I may have helped someone!

8. What would scare you more: being forever alone or never being alone again?

Never being alone again

9. What movie title best describes your life? 

Never Back Down

10. If you could watch any event in history, what would it be?

The negotiations for an Irish Free State!

11. If you could add, remove or change a law, what would it be and why? 

I would adjust the Irish legal penalties for crimes. I feel that they are beyond too short for most of the crimes that are committed. In relation to sentencing criminals in Ireland, get off lightly I feel.

My nominations 

1. Little bit of Tanisha 

2. Lady like Laura

3. She is so Bipolar

4. My life is a Saga

5. Little moments of Peace

Questions

The Mystery Blogger Award

Hi!

Thank you to Bookwormmuse for the nomination! You should go check her out if you have a chance 🙂

photogrid_1476365612975

So, what is the Mystery Blogger Award?

“It’s an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion.”
 Created by Okoto Enigma.

The rules are:

  • Put the award logo/image on your blog.
  • List the rules.
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well.
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself.
  • You have to nominate 5 people.
  • Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice
  • Share a link to your best post(s).

Three things about me: 

  1. I am great at cleaning up the house, except for my bedroom, it is the equivalent of a bomb site 90% of the time!
  2. I can spend hours delaying starting anything that I am meant to do. This then results in me doing most tasks in a limited time span.
  3. I bought a camera to carry around with me as I got a bit sick of using my phone for everything. But now, I am afraid to use it sometimes…..

Questions

1. Why did you start your blog?

I thought I had some free time on my hands and while I didn’t plan to write about mental health as much as I do. I found that if what I write helps 1 person that is enough for me 🙂

2. What’s the one thing in your life that you wish you could change? 

I wish I could go back to start September 2016 and tell myself everything that I was about to do wrong and what the outcomes were. I don’t know if this would result in my actions changing, but I wish I knew!

3. What are your pet-peeves?

When I am having a conversation with someone and they start to walk away while continuing to speak to me! Like damn son, come back here and have a chat or not!

4. If you were given the chance to get that one thing you had always wanted or the chance to travel the world, which would you choose and why?

I would like to have the one thing I always wanted. Right now, I don’t know for certain for that is, but I know I would value it more than travel!

5. What is the one goal you didn’t mind not achieving?

Hmm, this is tough. I think I’ll go with not getting what I had listed at the top of my choices for college! There is always a way to where you want to go and while life interrupted in the people I met. I wouldn’t have had that time with them if I had gotten my first course.
