My hair is naturally this exact colouring! Finally I’m effortlessly trendy... only 30 something years...
My cats knew I was pregnant before I knew both times. Females cats, desexed, but started spraying around the time I conceived (hadn’t done the tests yet!) stopped after a few weeks. Also became REALLY smoochy and neither were typically smoochy. Obviously they didn’t know it was pregnancy, but they could tell something had changed in me.
@fightofyourlife I read the whole thing and honestly, even if I was willing to spend $200 on a single pair of jeans (if my Kmart $15 jeans only last 3 years, still a decent investment imo!) the article was very lacking in enthusiasm considering she apparently lives them..
That first one, a definite married man trying to have an affair, it has ALL the red flags.
@snorks thank you for the intellectual conversation rather than the stupidity being broadcast out there. Whist the first WWII reference was kind of a moot point (realistically, they are still doing it with asylum seeker detention..).
I haven’t watched it yet, but I am going to.
@rush right?! I had wanted to go on a weekend cruise for my birthday this month.. it would be my first if I had (not that any are available here) now I am reconsidering ever going on one!
@snorks I do understand where you are coming from, but it’s not as simple as “the government telling us what we have to wear”. They aren’t doing it to infringe upon our human rights, in fact they are doing it to protect our human rights - the right to live a safe and healthy life. They are doing it to save lives, not to be a$$holes. And it’s only under emergency orders, once the country is declared pandemic free (hopefully sometime in the next 6-12 months, for all our sakes!) those emergency orders are discarded because of the order they were made under.
As someone who has suffered on and off (I say on and off as I haven’t always suffered from it, but always have it) with mental illness my entire adult life (and then some), I know now I can’t survive without psychologists. I would see one when things were bad then stop when things were good. This meant my BPD2 went undiagnosed until I was 31 when I finally saw my psychologist when I was doing well too. I realise now they aren’t just there for the crisis and they can know you much better if they see you in the good times as well as the bad. I’m very lucky to have been given funding for extra visits this year through a victim support organisation so I can see my psychologist every 2-3 weeks without having to worry about if I can afford it (at $120 a session there’s no way I could even afford monthly after my 10 Medicare sessions were up!) but if you can space out sessions outside of crisis times to once a month (take off December/jan of you can, being such busy times for most people anyway) when you are doing well, you will be amazed at how much seeing a psychologist even in good times helps! It also means when you reach a crisis 1. It’s not hard to get in to see them and 2. They recognise it sometimes before you do!
I assure you, height restrictions don’t stop this happening!
My mum somehow convinced me when we went to wonderland for my 9th birthday, that the pirate ship at the end of wonderland was different to the one at the start and this one didn’t go all the way around. I easily met the height restriction!
But when the ride started going upside down, because I was so skinny (how I wish I had that build still) I started slipping! I was sure I was going to fall out of it which is why I screamed. My mum thought my screaming was hilarious not realising it wasn’t just the going upside down but I honestly felt like I was going to fall out and die. It didn’t make my mum irresponsible taking me on it, I was at least a good 7cm over the height restriction. I just didn’t have enough body fat to fill out the gap between the seat and the harness, they don’t alert you to things like that!
I went back years later and went on the pirate ship 5+ times with my friends not scared at all, because I didn’t literally lift out of my seat.
Wow! Thankfully they never used our speeches as a reason to pass or not pass the class! But I totally agree! Even in uni I was petrified of presentation assignments, thankfully though they were always group assignments so it was much less daunting AND if you have a fear of public speaking most of the teachers at uni will allow you to do the speech just in front of them if it’s a solo presentation.
I completely understand and agree! I almost drowned in kindergarten at an excursion to a beach and then again in year 6 when I was forced to participate in a 100m race having never had swimming lessons. An adult literally had to jump in the pool fully clothed to save me. The humiliation and bullying that followed that was unbelievable.
