Weekly Wondering // Week 12


Hello! For the explanation of what is going on here, please do click here and have a quick read. Other than that, in short, I am answering 7 of these 365 thought provoking questions each week until I complete the year. I already did this in 2013 and am revisiting them to compare my answers.

Is it more important to do what you love or to love what you are doing?
Both? Neither? Either..? I feel they are pretty similar and there are things I love that I am not doing, however, I do love what I am doing if that makes sense. You can always adjust and learn to love the things you have to do and it's not always an option to be able to do what you love. As long as you are happy who gives a hoot, eh?

What do you imagine yourself doing ten years from now?
Work wise I'd still like to just be cleaning. I have no want to work in retail or with the public again as it's too much stress and even less want to have any role with a lot of responsibility / be a career woman. Life is too short to be stressed about work or be rushing around doing things that take up time I could be spending on other stuff. I will never have a lot of money, but I'm hoping by then we will at least own a little house so that we don't throw another 70k of money down the landlord drain haha. Oh, and I would like to think the family will have expanded.

What small act of kindness were you once shown that you will never forget?
I forgot.

What is your happiest childhood memory?  What makes it so special?
Haven't we already had this question? (See week #9) I'll choose another, though. Or not a particular memory...more so my childhood in general. My happiest memory is having both my Mam and my Dad with me all the time. It seems quite rare these days to have both parents together and I appreciate that so much, right to this day.

Do you own your things or do your things own you?
I own my things? :/

Would you rather lose all of your old memories or never be able to make new ones?
Never be able to make new ones. I never want to forget the times I've had with Baker, or never know who my Granda was or remember the hurt I've been through that made me who I am.

How do you deal with someone in a position of power who wants you to fail?
I don't. Ha. I just ignore anyone who isn't nice. If it's online I'll delete, block, report, anything I can do to be rid nasty people :)


 Make sure to look back on this same post from 2013 here,  and see the differences in my answers! (I completed writing this before  checking back to my old answers by the way). You can also see the series in whole from last time here and of course last week's Weekly Wondering here.

  1. I definitely agree with the memories answer you gave, I wouldn't want to forget all the people I'd met or the good times in my past, and the bad too, as I think they end up shaping you but I'd hate to lose though, so I definitely agree with that one! Loved your answer to the first one too, I hated working in retail, I just found it so stressful and you're right, as long as you're happy, that's what's important, and that doesn't always mean lots of money and a high-flying career, which is what is almost pushed on us from a young ge. These always make me think, I love it! - Tasha

    2. I worked in retail too, it was the worst!
      Maybe everyone shoue be required to do like a three-month stint in a public facing job, just so they learn some empathy for people! (I dont think it'd work though!)

    3. 100%! I was saying to my Mam the other day that kids leaving school should have to do work experience in both cleaning and retail roles to learn respect for others in those jobs if they end up going on to do something else.
      If cleaners just stopped doing their jobs people would soon kick off and then appreciate the hard jobs we do!

    1. Thank you! I couldn't imagine not remembering all the things/people I'm lucky to have/know.

  4. Wow, these questions really made me think! I completely agree with you that not being able to keep past memories would suck, although the idea of not making any new ones seems really horrific to me too. Like... life and all my memories would just stop today? I don't know it seems really hard either way! Also, the question about people in power sounds to me like in a typical office/work setting - it's harder to deal with online where it's not always one "person" and could be an alias or group of people on twitter or whatever!

    1. They do don't they?
      It's a horrible but because I've seen what it's like to not be able to remember your family etc, I'd definitely chose that over new memories...as sad as it is too.
      Ah yeah! I didn't think of it like that. I've never worked in that sort of place and now work at the very bottom of the chain with no want to be a 'career woman', so thankfully will never be effected by that!
