Daily Posts is an almost day-to-day post on random things in my life and posting inspirational/interesting things I found on the internet. I used to do it on my other (personal-ish) blog, but I decided to move it here to add a tang of optimism and loving life here on Wicked Wed. So without further ado, here is the Daily Post!
I haven’t been up to much lately, the first week back to school was pretty frantic. I was trying to switch my courses but I ended up only dropping one. I look forward to my Literature class but already in these three classes I’ve been in, the class seems pretty hardcore already! I hope I survive through this year!
Pushing negativity aside, to those starting the school year, I wish you the best of luck! And those not in school, well I hope you have a great year anyways!
WORD OF THE DAY:
ephemeral: Lasting for a very short amount of time. Usually used to plants: “An ephemeral plant”.
Sentence Example: New words are constantly being coined, some will prove ephemeral, others are here to stay.
QUOTE OF THE DAY:
Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.
SILLIES OF THE DAY:
So now that school is back I have a quite the work load already (it’s only the first week!) and being the lazy butt I am, I have not been updating the blog very much! Ah, I feel very bad, I have had little time to game too (which makes me very sad!) but I will make time for it ASAP.
1) New Games I want to Play
2) Games I look forward to
Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary
Gears of War 3 (Ahh I love Gears of War, it’s coming out so very soon! Also, female playable characters? Hell yes!)
3) Stuff I’ve been loving/doing
My Toki Doki Bag
My Cute Planner! ❤
Watching K-Dramas (new-found obsession)
Until Next time!
PS. Thanks to everyone that stops by to check out my blog!
Even though I have been living in my province for so long, I know so little of it; heck I barely even know my own neighbourhood! I travel everyday down the same roads to go to the same places. Recently I’ve been taking walks to places I have not touched before, which is pretty amazing! However I want to take it to the next level, if I’m able to just ride all across BC and maybe visit the other provinces of my dear country Canada, I think it’ll be pretty amazing! I just need to find someone crazy enough to do it with me!
Stuff to consider?
Maybe hit the beach?
Visiting the places away from the busy city…
Looking at the night city view out in the open.
Feel the wind.
Lie under the stars.
Links of stuff/news/anything interesting for this week and a bit of rambling from me!
FYI: @ = referring to that person/blog
List of awesome stuff I came across!
–Rare Sand Kitten born, so very cute!
–Bad-ass Female Action Heroes (I totally agree with number 10 Captain Janeway! Ahh the good ol’ days when I watched Star Trek…)
-Reading Jazz Lassie’s post on “Live Life with Meaning?”, it made me remember about the TED talk from Eve Ensler and her quote saying “You have to give to the world the thing that you want the most, in order to fix the broken parts inside of you.” Very inspirational.
I think in a sense in order for something to truly “belong” to you is to give it away, because if it truly is in your heart you won’t be afraid to give it away because you’ll always have it. Physical things in this world will disappear after a while and the possessions we own will mean nothing after death. However things such as love, respect, care, kindness, are priceless and not matter how much you give, it will always exist even after you leave. Indeed there are times when people will take advantage of you when you give them your sincerity (hence heartbreaks and betrayal happens), but even if they hurt you, as long as you hang in there, the priceless traits you didn’t selfishly hide will always stay with you. They will be the ones that lose the sincerity (they will lose your trust and respect, perhaps from others as well), but not you; never lose sincerity no matter what people do (haters will be haters). I don’t think I’m making any sense right now, but I hope I gave a general idea of what I meant! ><
On the not-so bright side
-The London Riot. Really… it puts humanity in shame. However there is this one story of lesson. (I read this article in Chinese so I don’t think I’ll be linking it here!) A young girl (an aspiring singer) joined the riot and she destroyed a police car. Her mother saw her deeds on television and phoned the police that her daughter was the one that demolished the car. When she was interviewed whether she felt remorse for turning her daughter in, she firmly and without hesitation answered “No.” it was because she wanted to teach her daughter a lesson, to tell her what she did was wrong. The girl was brought to justice; sadly this will be added to her criminal record, what will be of her future? If you guys read that, what do you think of the issue?
There is a twitter for “Fat Pikachu”, all the tweets are, “Pikachu” or some variation of it; this Pikachu is constantly is eating/hungry/asking for food! I am charged guilty for following this Cute Yellow Beast! You think he’ll spare me some candy? Sharing is caring after all!
Violet’s Personal Bubble
Just a quick rambling on what happened to me this week!
It’s been pretty lazy just gaming and levelling my toons, but I kind of look forward to next week. Although I have to get a root canal Monday, I get to go shopping with my mom! I haven’t done that in ages, I think it’ll be fun!
I’ve come across a lot of lovely blogs this week and one of my favourite ones is “A Quirky Girl’s Thoughts” I read her posts on shyness and I fell in love with her blog. Her cute email icon makes me want to email her, but I think need something proper to ask before bothering her! As a shy/introverted person (although somehow I manage to be quite crazy at times) I can totally relate.
–I was not able to find Lisa’s balloons, I am very sad :[.
I’ve also learned a few new words from scrabble, which I found pretty cool! Is it just the nerdy-me that likes to play games like Scrabble (even though I suck at it), or are there other people that are secretly in love with that game?
Oh yea, smiling and dancing and singing a song at the top of my lungs around the house is really fun!
I hope everyone had a lovely week and hopefully next week will be a nice fresh new start!
PS. I love this song, it’s been stuck in my head all day!
I think at some point in our lives most of us has wondered why we were given our names and what they mean.
My name is Violet which has the meaning of “a purple flower”, it’s nothing fancy like “Naida” meaning water nymph or “Nancy” meaning grace or favoured by god, but… I still love my name! However it does have a somewhat interesting history. I’ve always wanted a name where the meaning was something cool like “A Female Warrior” or “Strong character”, something like that.
Well to spice things up, I remember a friend of mine had used Urban Dictionary to find the meaning of my name and they were pretty awesome!
(I took the ones I like, there was more of course. I sound like a pretty awesome person eh?)
Of course it’s just some random fun; some of them are pretty funny to read and made no sense at all (some names mentioned pancakes and wild animals…)! However I find it pretty cool to read about what Urban Dictionary has to say about my name.
Have you searched your name on Urban Dictionary? If you haven’t give it a try!
What does your name mean (Urban Dictionary Style)?
Happy with my name,
