Things that creep me out…

  • people who shave their eyebrows off then draw them on.
  • buses around me when I’m driving.
  • Woodlice.

Greetings from the Isle of Wight

Hi everyone.
I’m writing this using Fred and I’m sat in the cottage in the IOW.
I am missing home but I want to stay longer than two weeks. It’s so nice here and such a slower pace of life… if you ignore the roads.
I love where we are because there’s hardly any street lighting. It’s not till you go somewhere without a street lamp outside your window, you realise how much it effects your sleep. I drop right away as soon as I hit the pillow here.
I also love the amount of craft shops this place has. I’m so in my element!!

I’ve been to a few places already. I’ve joined English heritage. I’ve actually missed driving. I’ve spent so much money. I’ve yet to have a phonecall from work.(Woop) Ive taken tons of photos. I’ve almost completed lego harry potter on the ds. I’ve found the best shop ever. And I’ve still got tons to do…

I’ve added Isle of Wight to the list of possible places I want to move to if I can.

Anyway. Time to do something else.
Bye bye lovelies.

I’m thinking…

of moving volunteer places.

I’m getting annoyed and bored. I need a change of scenery and somewhere I hope I will be able to get somewhere with what my aim in life is.

I need to volunteer in a bigger place I think.

I’m sending some emails out.

Fingers crossed I can sort it out.

I need to be happier again.

Guess what!!

I passed my driving test today! :D:D:D

I had 13 faults, but it was all stuff that happened due to nerves!! Now I’m passed, I can get on with ironing things out!!

Quick update about Li…

Hi guys.

I’ve really fallen behind on updating this haven’t I?
Anyway, I’ll update you about me.

My favourite work mate has moved stores so I’m a tad meh about that. He’s coming back to cover the managers day off this month/untill we get a new team leader. I’m actually applying for his old role at my store which is team leader and fingers crossed I get that. Still won’t be the same without him though. But this is technically a promotion for him because of his great work with us, so hopefully in 3-6 months he will have his own store, which is somewhat good for him. (Although I know he’d rather be doing other things)

I’m currently feeling like shite because I have the most awkward ulcer in existance and I can’t eat properly so I feel ill. Hopefully it will bugger off soon.

I have a new/my first car. It’s name at the moment is the “geek mobile” but I need a proper name for it. I’m thinking Sgt Pepper. You can see it by clicking here.

I have new piercing. Got the top of my ear done.

I don’t have much else to update you with so I will leave it here.

Hope you are all ok.

Through the eyes of Li: My beliefs.

I was going to post this on my tumblr but even though I never get trolls, I think this might attract them. This way, when the link gets posted via the rss feed, it will more than likely only be clicked by people who actually like reading what I have to say every now and again.

Anyway, I’ve wanted to write about my beliefs for a while now, so here it is.
I will say this now, I am not religious at all. I do not pray everyday. I do not go to church/a place of worship. I’ve never understood religion completely and the way it effects our every day lives. But the fact I do not do these things, does not make what I’ve got to say/what I believe any less important than what people who do these things have to say. It’s just as important.

The basis of my beliefs is that if you boil down every single religion/faith/cult to their basic components, you get a higher power, a few displays of this higher power, a book/writings telling of the displays of higher power (granted, they were generally written years after the event) and a few prophets scattered about.

So as you’ve already worked out, I do not hang my hat up to any one religion. What I do hang it up to is a mix of beliefs taken from a lot of different religions.

My beliefs
I believe there is a higher power that influences the world around us. It is the same higher power for every religion/faith, it has just taken different forms for different people.
I believe that we are all on our own path, but like any path you walk along, if you decide to take a turn some where at some point, you’re off towards somewhere new, but it’s still your path because you are following it.
I don’t believe in heaven and hell, just a higher plane of existence you go to when you leave this world.
I believe in the idea that for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction and a believe in karma a little.
I’m not sure if I believe in reincarnation, but that is yet to be discovered.

I am guilty of saying “Oh my god/lord” and “for god’s sake” but that is because it has been stuffed into my vocabulary by the people around me and the media I follow. It has no meaning other than exclaimation/annoyance/tying not to swear. And I am not the only guilty party. Pretty much everyone does it. Occasionally I will use other versions of the sayings like “for pete’s sake”, “oh my ghouda”, “oh jeez/sheez”

I could start ranting about religious wars, but me ranting won’t change what has happened, or what will happen. I’m too small for this and my view is not widely seen. But if I was to be heard, I would not tell them that their religious views are silly or that they should become some other religion. They have to make their own choice on that and if a person didn’t have a belief system, no matter how “religious” or “scientific” it is, I think they would be a very sad person indeed so I would not tell them to forget their religions.
Religious wars have always confused me because it was a war over what someone believed in, and because someone else didn’t like it, they killed them for it. There was nothing solid to fight for. The confusion kind of stems from my belief that everyone believes in a form of the higher power, so I think, why are they fighting against each other over something that is the same. Even on a smaller scale, like  Northern Ireland, I still feel the same.

Everyone has their beliefs and I have no problem with that. It’s all down to how you interpret it. I’m glad you have something to believe/have faith in. Even Atheists have beliefs, the belief that there is no God.
What I do have a problem is though, is the use of religion and beliefs as a basis for violence against each other. Hell, we live in the same worldwide house now, get off your high horse and give your housemate a hug.
I will not preach to you my views because I do not expect you to preach them to me. I do not want to be preached to. This entry is just me, writing down my beliefs so don’t shoot me or claim I’m preaching.

So here ends another year…

This year, for me has been very up and down.
I had a lot of crap things happen to me, but I learnt a lot about myself and a few great things have happened too.

A lot of people seem to have had a crappy 2009.
(The next bit is a mini brief as I’m too tired to go into full detail and I shall be here for days. And unless you’ve been living under a rock, you should know what I’m going on about)

We lost a hell of a lot of good people this year, those in the public eye and those a little more closer to home.
Britain lost a hell of a lot of soldiers this year, 107 is the figure that I can find. It is 107 too many.

Also a lot of companies went down the pan this year due to the Recession. Such a shame.

There was a lot of horrible situations shown in the news this year too.

This year was a bit pants.

But there was a lot of wonderful things that kind of made up for the crappiness of 2009.

But anyway. As I know many of you will say.

BRING ON 2010!!

Happy New Year!!
