Grab your children,pets and ALL the food you can get and ?. RUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN ?
Seeing as this will be tomorrows topic and I’m pretty sure it’s invading your Facebook home page and Twitter news feed I thought I might aswell give my little intake about it…
They say the “Mayan Calendar” is set to end on the 21st December 2012 which would mean the end to the world as we know it. I heard the Mayans predicted the last Ice Age to?. The Mayans are going to be strongly criticised if the world doesn’t really end tomorrow (21st December 2012) although I have recently read that they have never actually said that the world will end on such a date. Are they backing down now ? Maybe they truly didn’t predict the end of the world but on one of their tapestries a crocodile is squirting alot of water out and people have linked this picture with the current floods in the UK and the devastating hit of hurricane Sandy in New York. So is the world really going to end ? If the Government knew would they inform people creating havoc everywhere?. After all if they could they would save themselves and their families right?. I think this whole concept have driven some people over the edge,across the US people have bought bomb shelters and stocked up on food and water just in case something huge were to happen. Many people laugh but what if it were to happen ?.
Do I believe the world will end tomorrow ?. Simple answer is No. However I do believe that maybe not tomorrow but someday something huge and catastrophic will occur because if history has taught me anything is that every so often something has to change the world. Earth has lived through Ice Ages,terrible floods, natural disasters and even World Wars. My granny used to say every 40 years or so a World War or something big had to happen because something had to lower the world’s population and the fact that it isn’t happening it’s actually quite frightening. unfortunately such events will happen again and who knows maybe asteroids actually do hit earth but as to when it will happen,well that’s a secret that none of us will know so I suppose that is why we should live our lives to the fullest!.
If this is my last message thank to all who have shared my blog,liked my links and commented on my posts you made my days brighter. If you wish to contact me privately you know how to do so 😉
Hey bloggers,so sometime ago someone had sent me an e-mail via the “Contact Page” on my blog and they told me about the impact that cancer has had in their life. Now that its close to Christmas it may be particularly harder to those who have lost people in their lives as its a time where we most remember those who have left us. Below I will copy an article this man wrote explaining what his wife has gone through.
My Experience with Cancer during the Holidays
With each year that passes by, I always look forward to the holiday season. For me, the holiday season is all about giving thanks and spending time with my loved ones. One can imagine how excited I was when my wife, Heather, gave birth to our daughter, Lily, in the summer of 2005. We were so excited to have our first and only child, and I was even more excited to be able to celebrate the holiday season with our new baby. We had so many ideas for the holidays and we could not have been any happier. However, our happiness was short-lived. It was just 3 days before we were supposed to be sitting down at the table for our Thanksgiving meal when Heather received her cancer diagnosis.
Our daughter was only 3 months old at the time that Heather was told she had mesothelioma. Our holiday cheer quickly diminished as we began our battle against cancer. There were so many emotions that I was dealing with, but the anger and fear were the strongest. I tried staying optimistic, although it was far easier said than actually done. I didn’t know much about mesothelioma, but we found out quickly that it was an extremely deadly form of cancer, and that most people would die within 12 months of being diagnosed. All I could see was the worst case scenario happening, and that Thanksgiving I felt that I had nothing to be thankful for.
Despite the terrible news, we still tried to celebrate with Heather’s family, who flew in to spend Thanksgiving with us. The family also spent Christmas with us and shortly after that, Heather would have to go to Boston to receive treatment for her cancer. I distinctly remember the difficult conversation we had that night with Heather’s family on Thanksgiving. After eating our meal, we sat there and talked about expenses and finances, along with care for our daughter. Heather’s family told us that they would be willing to help us with some of the bills and other expenses, especially since we were trying to survive off of one income alone. Our income was declining but the expenses for treatment and travel continued to expand. During that conversation, all I could feel was sadness and embarrassment that I could not take care of my family alone. It would be many years before I could look back on that day with greater clarity, and realize how mistaken I had been to look at it that way.
What I did not realize was the fact that we had the support of our family, all of whom were trying to help us in different ways. They were willing to drop everything in their own lives to be with us to help, and offered to make huge sacrifices of their own to ensure our well being. I was blinded by fear and pride at the time, but now I can see quite clearly how much we truly had to be thankful for that day.
Now that the holiday season is here again, I wanted to give thanks to everyone who supported us through our difficult journey. I am thankful to have great family and friends, a healthy daughter, and the support of so many who reached out a hand to help us. Thanks in large part to their support, we were able to make it through Heather’s mesothelioma surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments in the months that followed. Heather managed to beat the odds and she survived her battle with mesothelioma. We’ve celebrated seven Christmas’s and counting together with our beautiful daughter since the diagnosis, and we hope that our story of triumph over cancer can be a source of inspiration and hope to all those currently battling cancer this holiday season.
Remember if anyone has anything they want to talk about in private they are most welcomed to email me. I only posted the above as he asked me if I could do so to spread awareness.
Have a nice day x
Hey bloggers I apologise for the lack of posts lately. I went in for a minor operation last week and I’m still recovery,its nothing major its just a tonsillectomy but it sure is painful and annoying!. Before the operation I was warned it would be painful and especially due to my age (21) it might be worse because the older you are the more painful it may be. I’m also allergic to anti-inflammatories so that doesn’t help my situation at all. I’m quite hopeless when I’m sick anyway, I’m more of a coach potato and feel like death is upon me so I just lay there like a vegetable doing nothing. I have yet to eat a proper meal and I really can’t wait to be able to eat normally again.
Apologies again and I shall be posting soon 😀 Now seeing as I’m unwell as a favour to me you can share my blog on Facebook,Twitter and to your friends ;).
Hey bloggers ! How are you all enjoying the nice winter ?.
So envy , that’s the topic today :). I’m not talking about the simple day to day “omg I’m jealous of his abs or her hair”. I’m talking about the envy we all have deep inside. Some of us won’t know that the feeling we currently have is indeed envy!. How many of you admit of this envy ? How many of you share it with the world and let the world, SOCIETY judge you upon that remark?. I know i have yet to do that but today I shall change that. I will open up and admit to one of my ” Seven Deadliest Sins “.
TALENT – that is it. That is my envy plain and simple. I’m envious of others talents. Don’t think I’m jealous of EVERYONE who has a talent in singing or drawing and whatever their talent may be. However I’m most envious of those who never tried in school, those who spent more time in detention than in classes and those who were never bothered about school or their education. Those are the ones I’m envious and at times I think why do I not have a talent ?. I honestly don’t think I have any talent and it does get me down. I know if they have a talent it is for a reason and they were given it for a greater purpose but then I think ” well? What is mine then?”. That is purely my deepest envy! I also think what gets me the most is that I did not work towards any talent to perfect it!
So bloggers what is your deepest envy ?
Have a good night – Like – Comment – Share 🙂 x
Today I had a traumatic experience!. I thought I would have lost all my memories from the past,reminders,contact information the whole lot. This morning when I woke up my iPhone had switched off by itself and lost 100% battery over night whilst I was asleep. I was just thinking I can’t live without my phone, I need It for my everyday life. I spend A LOT of time on my phone and I can honestly say ” I Can’t Imagine My Life Without My iPhone!!”.
That got me thinking, It’s a bit sad that we live in an era where losing our phone means more to us than losing something much more valuable. When I say valuable I don’t mean in the sense of money. I guess its how society has moved us along right ?. They say that we are losing the ability to have a conversation in person rather than behind a screen. Could be true,So that’s why we should try to go out for drinks more often rather than say what we feel behind a screen. Although I am sure this is happens to all of us, especially the panic over our phones. How would I tweet my insane thoughts ?!- Yes I am a Twitter addict!. lol
That is all,hope you enjoyed todays short post 😀 x
October 2012 – Also known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month ! . The month where we have “Think Pink day”,where we all wear something pink to raise awareness for Breast Cancer. The most common misconception about breast cancer is that most people think it only affects women but it can affect us men to. It is said that it’s one of the most treatable types of cancer if caught in the early stages. In this day and age,with the medicines that we have it is sad that we don’t actually have a cure for cancer and so many lives are taken because of it. I think some way or another cancer has affected everyone. I myself lost my nan to cancer,I myself had a cancer scare (It’s alright I was in the clear!) and so did my mum.
I love those types of days where you see communities come together to support such a wealthy cause, I don’t know about where you live at the moment but tomorrow is also our annual cancer walk where we all walk for a distance and we give something towards the Breast Cancer non-profit organization.
I remember writing a post on the last Think Pink Day and adding a link so you could donate something to the cause so today I thought I’ll add another link. Not for you to donate,although if you wish to do so you can simply look back through my blog posts and find the link. This link provides information about breast cancer,it also gives you tips and advice. Why not have a look at it :).

Have a nice day ! Hope you enjoyed my little post 🙂
I don’t usually blog about the shows I watch and trust me I am a TV show addict. The series out there at the moment are just simply amazing. Last night a new one premiered called Arrow. I’m sure most of you have heard of the “Green Arrow”, a rich young man who went through a tragic moment in life and made him see sense so he uses he’s resources and helps those who have been a victim of millionaires that have ripped them off. Sort of like a more modern version of Robin Hood. Besides everyone in this series have GREAT bodies,makes me want to head to the gym just to try to look like that!
It has had GREAT ratings on its first episode,the way they have introduced all the characters and the stories behind each and every one of them is brilliant. I for one can’t wait for next week’s ep!.
Heres the link,check out the trailers 😀 ! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2193021/
