Tiktok – Secretly a Spy Tool

Many of you in the Cosplayer world have either heard of or used Tik-Tok. If this is you, please uninstall it, or at least be aware of what this Tool is actually doing.

Friday January 10th – 00:38 am I got the below notification:

This notification raised many flags, and I did a quick Google Search which brought to light the following:

Why it is a Spy Tool

The US has even opened a National Security Review into Tik-Tok

In Conclusion – This App asks for use of your camera and microphone, and doesn’t have limits as to where this data goes!!!!! Watch what apps ask for, and be safe out there friends!

Artist Jeanot Kermode!

Hey all!

I’m putting on the spotlight this week my incredible musician friend Jeanot KERMODE!!! When I was first introduced to this talented artist, up until this point I had not met a musician as real and as humble as he. Specializing in Electronic, Bass and House, He still maintains this humbleness in his music, bringing forward a fresh new outlook in each track. On that note, he’s just released ‘Whip It‘, so what better excuse to check out his stuff!! Woohoo! Keep them tunes coming!!!!!

I’ve reached out to him for tracks to run while I’m gaming, which he graciously supplied but I’ve been slow getting them up to stream! I’ll tag them as #KERMODE so watch for and tune in for a treat!

To support, book him for an event, listen to his music, or check out his art, click below!

Always look forward to seeing and working with this artist!!!

Compliments – A Tool So Often Misused

I came across this article this morning, “Self-Sabotage in Relationships and the One Question We’re Not Asking” by Crystal Jackson, and the words ‘Men compliment us, and if we don’t fall over with gratitude, they act like we’re egomaniacs.’ – stuck out to me. Personal experience as a Cosplayer and a woman, I’ve been complimented in the past, then when I haven’t answered back the way they hoped for, the person will either become moody, or continue pushing to the point of harassment in hopes of achieving their desired result.

It proceeds to say ‘The compliment isn’t really a compliment then, is it? It’s just a tool they use to get what they want. Otherwise, it would be freely given, without expectations attached. ‘ The writer then goes into detail of how she doesn’t even bother reading messages that start with a compliment, followed up by a question that was clearly answered by a quick look at her bio, finished off with a sentence starting a relationship with her without bothering to ask if she was interested. (Sound familiar?)

Compliments are just compliments, and too many people, men and women alike, use these to get what they want, and don’t bother asking if the person is truly interested in them or the project they are working on. This needs to be recognized as a form of manipulation and needs to be stopped.

I feel the article’s title is a bit off-topic, however I feel that it provides us the solution to the problem so many people face. “We need to start asking! It’s not wrong to be interested and to even reach out and communicate that interest. To proceed as if our interest is implied by our very existence is ridiculous.

I give away random compliments daily in an effort to make this world a brighter place, but I don’t expect anything extra from providing it, nor do I use them to get my way, and I get right irate at those who think their smooth words are going to push me into doing something I don’t care or want to do. Like anything, compliments can be used for good or bad, it’s how we use them that counts. Ask yourself, am I using this compliment for something? If so, is it to make the world a better place? Or is it for personal gain? Each one of us holds this tool, it’s up to you to choose how it’s used!

2020 Exploration Updates – Now InstaScenes

As I step into this new year, I feel my effort can be better spent by using InstaGram’s built in features of Stories. Starting today, you’ll start seeing updates of where I’m at and what I’m doing, a quicker way of keeping you in the know, and an easier way for me to keep track of where I’ve been!

Any helpful feedback is greatly appreciated as I embark on this new adventure, one that has encouraged me to get out more and show off my beautiful town, and hopefully, maybe someday, the world!

Story Twisters

I like to talk – SURPRISE! However, when it comes down to it, what I especially like is exchanging stories – you tell a story, I tell a story vice versa – I am fairly open and completely honest about my life, as I don’t believe in keeping secrets, or hiding how I feel, who knows maybe my stories will help you, as I know many people’s stories have helped me! However, if you are going to judge everything I say without an open mind, I probably won’t share anymore stories with you.

That being said, one day, I realized things I had said were coming back to me twisted through another in an effort to make the subject of my story look like an ass, this person also feeding the information to someone else I had already moved away from speaking to, as similar events had occurred. I’m all for sharing stories, but to manipulate a story for your own use! – It wasn’t just one story either, it was every single one that I told about this particular person, and they decided according to their finite knowledge that this person was a piece of garbage and that I shouldn’t associate. – I was appalled, and immediately cut ties with this person, removing them from Facebook and any other social site.

I’d like to be very clear. Just because your way of life is different then mine, and you don’t care or want to understand it, doesn’t give you the right to pass critical judgement behind my back and say what I should or shouldn’t do. I will tell you my opinion on a situation if you ask for it, based on my experiences, but I will NOT say you HAVE to follow what I say, it is your life.

Now I write this in hopes of making some soul feel better about doing the same. It is not right for others to twist your stories, and you have a right to say NO and to remove these harmful people from your life. ‘It takes all sorts to make a world!’ as my late New Zealander friend Alice used to say, and it is up to you which ones you chose to love, and why, not everyone else’s business.

P.S. If you feel I ever missed or misconstrued information in telling a story, please let me know!! I’m only human, so know if I did, it wasn’t in malicious intent.

Sneaky Telus

Always Check your bills! Watch out for Telus!

I called Telus after my bill hiked 10 dollars. I was told I had been informed on the fine print of my bills for the last three months. I was told previously 6 months before that since I had been with Telus for so long that the newest upgrade to Fiber optics was NOT going to be changing my bill. Not to mention that a change like that should be in bold print on the top of my bill.

I spoke with a lady (Jane) who had to transfer me to promotions. Promotions said everything was taken care of, but tried to sell me a two year plan that I turned down.

I then received an email the same date stating I had bought a two year TV Plan! I emailed immediately, to find out why TV was put onto my internet only bill, but after a day wait, I called them. After a long wait, (Leo) answered, and transferred to promotional services.

Tanya the head of promotional services assured me that this was unacceptable. ‘We absolutely cannot! That is against your will you’re not to be getting that, I’ll be sending her coaching, I’ve been here 5 years, 1 year management escalations, and I’ve never seen this before. giving you TV, and downgrading you to internet 25 I’ve never seen this before!’

I asked if she could fix my bill, as it was now even more then the original amount I was trying to fix. She said there was no way that first employee could have promised me I could stay at that rate however she would do her best to get me down close to my original payment. She also explained the varying rates across the country, making me sick to my stomach to hear their internet was even more then mine. I’ve verified this rate with friends across the country.
