Weekly Wondering // Week 30

Hiya :)
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.

What do you wish you had done differently?
Just like all other similar questions which kind of overall boil down to regrets and changing the past, my answer is nothing. The domino effect would kick in and change everything.

What is your greatest strength and your greatest weakness?
My extreme empathy and over emotionalness is both my greatest strength and greatest weekness I guess. I'm not sure why I say so and can't really explain, but yeah.

When was the last time you lied? What did you lie about?
Everyday! I lie to Baker that the treats are all gone, I lie to myself that I'm gonna stop eating so much rubbish and I occasionally lie when people ask how I am and I say 'Good yeah.' or 'Fine' etc when I'm not. I've noticied that more and more recently. People replying to that question with good, fine etc when they aren't. Must be a British thing.

What made you smile this week?
Watching all the baby seagulls getting good at flying, residents at work being cute, Baker as always, my book, numerous other birds, going 4 days without rubbish, movies I've watched and probably other stuff too.

What do you do with the majority of your money?
Pay household bills.

What motivates you to be your best?
The state of the world. We need as many pure, good, kind, helpful people as I'm trying my best to be my best me ;)

When was the last time you lost your temper? About what?
hahah Goodness knows. It happens quite often, especially with Jake and really, I'm known for having quite the firey temper...though I am a red head so..:P 

Make sure to look back on this same post from 2013/14 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 get what you mean about being an empath as I struggle with this myself. I worry about everyone else's emotional state and I find I often pick up on other people's emotions fairly easily, though not always, and it can definitely be difficult but I think like you said, it's also a real strength as I think you can give people the comfort and support they truly need when they need it, even if they may not feel too comfortable saying how they feel. Sometimes I've gently prodded a friend and they've told me a whole load of things that have been bothering them that they didn't feel they could share with anyone, though I find it much harder to gauge over the internet, which is why I end up obsessing over messages sometimes haha! Baby seagulls are always a joy to see too! - Tasha

    1. Mine is more so towards animals I guess. Like the Goose near my house has a sore foot just now and doesn't seem too well and I've literally made myself ill worrying ha! I just can't help it.
      I don't know how I am with people as I'm not around people much...


    2. Awww, that's lovely though, it's good to be in tune with nature, I love that. I hope the good is OK. :( To be honest, I live a much more reclusive life now after moving as all my friends are back down South so I'm the same and I don't blame you Danielle - sometimes I don't understand other humans. :P

  2. I don't think I've ever answered the 'How are you?' question with anything other than 'fine, thanks' no matter what has actually been going on! I agree it might be a British thing!
    Hope you really are ok though!

    1. Funny isn't it? I wonder if other places do the same.
      I am :) Hope you are too.
