Liberté Égalité Fraternité: Notes about the new French President

Firstly, congratulations Monsieur Macron on winning the French elections!

Photo published for French election: What does Emmanuel Macron stand for?

Yep, there goes another celebrity President!

The French election is always exciting! I don’t like politics, but I like minding the French’s business! 🙂 Going into the big day when the French would choose their new leader, social media was abuzz with fierce intensity. Marine Le Pen put up a good fight, but in the end, it was not to be. Macron was elected in hopes of restoring the country to its former glory. 

A lot of American celebrities were clearly delighted with the new President-elect:

You sure did, girl. You sure did. Wrote that wrong, that is.

I’ve tweeted some people’s thoughts from the Daily Mail about France’s new President and many of them were mixed. 

^ A lot of people didn’t vote Le Pen because there is too much racism involved in her party. You can ask Zidane (yes, that former footballer, now coach at Real Madrid) if you don’t believe it.

^ Whenever I hear the name Emmanuel Macron, I automatically think of macarons!

^ Macron is 39 which means he has become France’s youngest ever President.

^ During the campaign, it was revealed that Macron, a former banker, had married his former Drama teacher, 64-year-old Brigitte Trogneux. Le scandale! He was 15 when he met the married mother of 3. She was 24 years his senior. He embarked on an affair with her when he turned 16? Or was it 17? Or maybe it was 18? Is there a biography of sorts on this man’s life? I want to read it.

^ First Lady at 64! Brigitte will work for free in her husband’s government to plan new education reforms. Yes, girl, serve! Once a teacher, always a teacher! Her main focus is concentrating on “work for autistic and disadvantaged kids, out of the political firing line.”

^ Mme Le Pen was gracious in defeat. She congratulated Macron and even danced the night away to ‘I Love Rock and Roll’ and ‘YMCA’. She got some sweet moves!

^ Macron is pro-EU. When he appeared in front of his supporters, the EU anthem was sounded, rather than “La Marseillaise”. Hmm, why am I getting Tony Blair vibes from Macron?

^ And let the male sexual objectification begin! No, seriously. Twitter exploded with a debate over who is the ‘sexiest G7 leader’: Canadian PM Justin Trudeau or newly elected French President, Monsieur Macron. As far as I am concerned, they’re both French, celebrities and good looking. Trudeau is often referred to as a Tom Cruise look-alike… when he smiles. Strange enough, the first time I saw Mr. Trudeau, I was like, ‘Oh, Tom Cruise has finally cloned himself!’ Then it wore off.

^ Macron has inherited a divided France. Let’s see how he plans to unite the country.

Vive la France! I hope that you’re pleased with your decision. 🙂

Positive Monday: A Gift from God

 :

It’s Monday, yo! And what a lovely time to be alive so let’s give praise for this wonderful gift!

Image result for gif praise

You know what else is also a gift?

Mornings are a gift from God. Some people are not lucky to live to see today, so why grumble and waste it when you can be thankful and make use of it.

Family is a gift from God. Despite what is going on, there is no excuse or reason to treat them unfairly. Remember, loved ones can be here today, gone tomorrow, so cherish them. And if they’re being stubborn? Pray for them.

You know what else is a gift from God? You, the person reading this. He has lovingly molded and created you in His image.

Blessed Monday to all of you and remember that you’re a gift so why not make someone’s day today, eh? 🙂

Catching up!

I have some major catching up to do. I’ve been having wonky internet at home and at work for the past few days and it’s been disgusting! I won’t be posting anything until I’ve read and caught up with all the blogs (that’ll take 2-3 hours tops!) and then I’ll be watching a movie. I am not sure which one I’ll watch yet, though. Hope you’re having a great night/afternoon/morning! 🙂

Positive Monday: Your smile is a gift to share! 😃

 :

It’s Monday, yo!

When the first day of the week comes around, there is an automatic frown because we have to get back to work/school and the weekend was just too short. But do you know that a smile has healing wonders?

A smile can lift someone’s bad mood and make them forget what a crappy day they’re having. A smile is contagious and can lead others around you to actually feel happiness, pleasure, and joy. It can reduce stress. It can evoke warm wonderful feelings. It can boost someone’s confidence.

A smile is the world’s most powerful gesture!

So don’t be selfish. Arm yourself with a SMILE as you go about your duties today and make someone’s day. Remember, your smile is a gift to share. 🙂

Majestic May!

 :

They say April showers bring May flowers, but in this case, April flowers bring May showers! 😛 We haven’t had any rain in the month of April (except some drizzles), but we sure had lots of beautiful blooming beauties! ❤ But it’s May today and we were welcome with some showers! Praise God!

Time is flying by so fast, sometimes we want to scream for it to slow down.

But I am always grateful for every living breathing moment for it brings me closer and closer to my Maker, something I won’t ever take for granted.

Concerning the blog this month, I plan to continue what I’ve been doing last month. *sighs* April, I miss you already!

^ Book reviews! This is something that would continue until I tire of reviewing books. I am thinking of posting two reviews a week given that I read faster than I blog.

^ The 365 Days of Writing Prompts continues this month. I’ve come to dislike some of the repetitive prompts, but it won’t stop me from completing this challenge.

^ Challenges. I won’t be doing any this month. 

^ Positive Monday topics! I’ve been asked to do more PM topics, so I’ll see what I come up with. 

^ Now and then (or on a weekly basis), I post about the world’s greatest actor (I don’t care if you don’t agree with me! The man is 110% committed to his career.) I am not going to apologize for liking this actor. This is the man who gave me the best memories movie-wise and if I talk about TC a little too much, it’s not my fault. He’s excitable. ^^

^ Since the Worshipful Living Scripture Writing Challenge ends today, I’ll be posting the KJV verse of the day from tomorrow God’s willing.

^ I hope to update my Humanity category this month. There are still so many good people in the world out here and I intend to showcase some of their good deeds.

^ An influx of posts. Guys, I just went through my Drafts and guess how many posts I’ve been erm, storing over the past months? 120? No, try 306! I am so embarrassed! 😦

I’m all fired up for May and I hope you are too! Thank God that you’re alive and remember to…

Blogger’s problem 101: like for the sake of liking

Image result for cat adams criminal minds gif

#MusingMonday

Are you one of those bloggers who like for the sake of liking without actually reading the post because you know if you like the post it’s going to be bait for the blogger to visit your blog and ACTUALLY read your post?

If you’re one of those, then it’s unfair for the blogger who actually read your posts and leave comments while you just visit their blog and press the like button without reading. There are no rules stating that you have to actually like someone’s post. None whatsoever! So if you don’t like reading other bloggers’ posts, don’t visit their blogs, don’t press like for the sake of liking and don’t follow their blog. Stop giving them false hopes that you’re actually reading their blog when in fact you’re not.
