Creators Spotlight: JordReacts (Part 2)

Hiya everyone, hope you’re all well and having a good weekend, hope your Sunday’s treating you nice as well, now I know already did one, but there was someone else that I wanted to give a little love and shine some light to, this person has a react channel, it’s a music reaction channel, however it’s UK based, now the kind of music that is reacted to, is one that a lot of you may not know of, some of you might, some probably not……

What kind of music does this channel react to you might ask!? Well this channel is specifically a Grime channel, it’s a type of music within the UK, it’s not really big outside of the UK, so a lot of people don’t really know it, but it is getting there, now if you were to ask me what exactly is Grime music…..well……it’s kinda like rap music, but also not, it’s a lot different,

but this channel can give you a really good and MUCH better insight to it then I can, all I can say is it’s worth listening to, if you haven’t already heard it and if you’re looking for something completely out of your music taste range so to say. Now I will say this, for new comers listening to Grime for the first time, it may take a bit to adjust, because of how quick some of the freestyles are, but besides that i’d still recommend checking it out and the best place to do that in case you are a little curious and interested……

Would be to check out JordReacts channel, you’ll be introduced to a lot of different artists and you’ll get to hear what the music’s all about, all at the same time!! It’s a win, win i’d say, so go and check out that out, it’s great, he’s great and I think you’ll find a lot within it!!

I’m going to leave a few of my favorite songs that he’s reacted to on his channel in a playlist, so you guys can get a little idea on what kind of music you’ll be hearing, now there’s only three songs in this playlist right now, couldn’t find the other ones I liked also I just made it, but there’s some there, so listen to what you feel most: Spotify Playlist (JordReacts Favorites)

I’ll be updating this playlist with more favorites of mine along the way, so if you do have a listen and find you like some of the songs, you can just click on the playlist and see what else is added there if you want, but again definitely check out JordReacts channel, show some love and support to him as well as the artists that are featured on the channel and I hope some of you discover and do find something you all like from it!! ^_^

All The Love ❤ ❤ ❤

Creators Spotlight: The Flood, Midnight Mind & Paraphernalia (Updated)

Update: Okay so relooking at this, I felt I should change it, so for those reading it how it is now, just know that it won’t be like this later, some things might stay in, but the rest i’m going to try and change around…….

I got to read 3 great posts, by three great writers the other day and I just wanted to write a post about it, it was originally going to be a video that I wanted to do, but I later decided that writing on it would be better, I thought what they did was creative and I thought all of their posts were incredible and I wanted to share it in someway and I hope that’s okay

Just to give you a quick idea on what their post is about, without spoiling anything, they took a song lyric from one of their favorite artist and wrote a story with it, it was very cool, amazing and pretty creative too, very creative actually, they’re are a lot blog posts that i’ve read, but reading theirs, well let’s just say there aren’t much words I can say to describe them, but their way of writing and expression is something truly special!!

I can’t really express what i’m trying to say right now, but it’s good, when you read their posts, you’ll know what I mean right away, but i’m telling they really are amazing writers, but don’t take it from me, read their posts and have a look for yourselves, I think you’ll find it to be really interesting, I sure did!! You can check them and their blogs out here:

The Flood: A Shadow Tilts It’s Head At Me (Sarah’s Post)

Midnight Mind: Spirits In The Dark Are Waiting (Jul’s Post)

Paraphernalia: I Will Let The Wind Go Quietly (Clara’s post)

Just a heads up though when you’re reading, the posts that i’ve shared are hosted ones between the three of them, they did a collaboration post, which means they’ve gone and hosted each others post on their blogs so you’ll be reading them in a different way, but don’t worry they’ve been nice to share the links on their blogs to each others post so you can easily access them once you’re finished reading the one you’ve read, but do go over and share some love and and support toward Sarah, Clara and Jul’s blogs,

I’m pretty sure they’d appreciate it and i’m sure it’d mean a lot to them too, they’re all talented and great writers and I think they deserve for their blogs to be read so if you can and are interested do go check them out!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

I Swore Myself I’d Leave Myself Alone……

For those wondering, this line is from one of my favorite songs by one of my all time favorite artists, i’ve talked about her before, Alexz Johnson, not sure if that rings a bell, but…..the last time I talked about her, was when I was talking about her latest song called Weight, it’s been a while since I actually listened to that song, now she’s got new ones, plus a new album, that I still haven’t heard…..there’s a lot of songs from the artists I listen to that I need to check out, I always think of listening to them, but I never really get around to it, I might have to pick a day to just sit and have a listen to them.

But enough about music talk, that’s not actually where it was going….I just thought i’d have a chat about things if that’s alright…..if you do want to talk about music do let me know and i’ll make sure to write a separate post focusing on that……if you’re curious to check out the post that I mentioned you can find it here: Now Playing….Weight By Alexz Johnson

Anyway let’s have a chat shall we!?…..okay so i’m going to be honest i’m not really sure what i’m planning on talking about, I just know that i’d like to chat a bit, now normally i’d express the things i’m wanting to express, but maybe we should do it a little differently, how about we talk on the line of Alexz’s song careless and it’s meaning, now when you look at it, you’d say it’s pretty self explanatory right!? Yeah well i’d say so too, anytime I hear this song and this line comes up in the song, I always feel it and it’s because it’s a relatable line, most of us don’t know how to leave ourselves alone or better yet ease up on ourselves, we’re always so harsh for some reason.

I mean i’m sure that reason is to make sure we’re our best self, which is great, but we always tend to be the most harsh when we know we’re already feeling a certain way, it’s like even when we know we should shape up and get over our feelings, we’re still harsh about it, saying things like “you’re always doing that” “why can’t you just stop thinking so hard” and so on and it always feels like there’s two versions of ourselves the being that we are, but also this other person whose meant to be there to keep us moving or at least does they’re best to keep us on our feet……

Now we all know the saying on “tough love” and for some it works, but others not always, I mean why do we always think being judgmental and scolding ourselves is the best thing to do!? Why can’t we instead be a little patient with ourselves!? If there’s a moment where we’re feeling agitated, emotional and other non great feelings, why can’t we support ourselves for a moment and just allow ourselves to feel!?

This might sound confusing and may not make much sense……but what I mean is, we shouldn’t go screaming at ourselves because we’re feeling a certain way and we shouldn’t go judging ourselves either, getting more upset with ourselves especially when we’re already upset, doesn’t really fix things does it!? If anything it only makes us more upset,

because there’s more pressure being added, now sure pressure is apart of life, but do we really need to give ourselves more pressure!? We have to be better at being patient with ourselves and not be so harsh with the things we do, especially with how we handle our emotions and thoughts, because those are the big things that really can get to us, if we let it…….

I think instead of going for the attack, the best way to handle those moments, is to just be more aware and do our best to make sure we don’t overload and if we know we need a moment to release thoughts, emotions and so fourth, we just gotta let ourselves have that moment, but we also shouldn’t allow ourselves to get wrapped in it for too long,

Just take it as going for a walk or hiking of some sort, take that moment, but don’t allow it to overtake you when you need it and also just patience……we may need to take this line of Alexz’s song as a reminder for the times we go to be harsh to ourselves, but stop because we’re having to remember to be aware not to, maybe if we do that, we’d see a bit of a difference.

But that’s all I have, now before we close this off, I just wanted to share that, there’s a new video on my channel if you’re interested, I uploaded it Wednesday, since we’re getting close to midnight here, i’m just having a bit of a chat, but if you want to check that out, you can find it here: 7pm With A Different View but anyway I should probably head to sleep now, seeing as it’s now midnight, I hope you all are well and you guys have a good night.

All The Love ❤ ❤

Self Promoting……

Hi again, alright we’re doing this no if’s and’s or what’s about it……self promoting……first I just want to say WHY IS IT SO WEIRD!! I never understand why doing this is super odd, as I stated before in my last post if there’s something that you have that you want to share, why not just share it, why does it have to feel so weird, sharing things we feel good about!?

It’s funny i’m just remembering that I did attempt to write about this topic a long time ago, but you guys never saw it, because I didn’t share it…..ironic yeah!? You’d think that because we all have some sort of social media that it wouldn’t be a huge thing, but for some reason it is to some, including myself, why I have no idea, it should it be a big thing!? No, it is!? Sometimes……I mean at one point, I was always nervous to share on it, but later it just became a natural thing and it wasn’t as “yokes” you know!?

Now I have some sort of social media, I mean again everyone uses some sort of social media platform right!? So why is that we get that feeling of it being so odd and weird to promote things that we feel good about, when we’re all in a way, use to sharing things online!? It’s a mind boggling thing, I tell you, it really is weird!?…. I mean if there’s something you feel strongly about, we shouldn’t feel that, but I think no matter how use to it we are or maybe, there’s always going to be some kind of white line to where promoting something we’ve created because we felt like sharing in the moment, will always be the one thing that trips us up to feeling like that.

Now although, self promoting can feel and become a little intimidating because we’re sharing and expressing things we care about, that shouldn’t keep us from still wanting to share, even if people don’t look at it right away and even if we do still feel and get weird about it, that’s okay, everyone gets nervous and it’s not always easy to put ourselves out there especially when creating, but as long as we don’t allow or let the discouragement get to us, who cares if it feels weird, if we need to get the nerves out, why not!?

Hey if it helps maybe we should laugh at ourselves so it doesn’t seem so bad, I think the main thing is, no matter how weird or odd it can be to share the things we want to share, as long as we continue to share regardless to how it feels, then it’ll be alright and it’s okay if we end up being weirdos about it.

All The Love ❤ ❤

Music & Dreams….

How’s everyone’s Sunday going so far!? Hopefully well, hope you guys got a good amount of sleep last night as well, if you didn’t know already, the clocks moved forward due to daylights savings time and you know what comes with Daylight saving, less sleep and more of a longer day, I think that’s it anyway, but I hope you guys are all doing well!!

Now you might be confused about this title here, I just wanted to write a quick post about my latest uploads, one is just a chat about music and how long of a way it’s come, while the other is about dreams and why we have them, I did a double upload late last night, so if you guys are interested do check it out if you like, i’ll share them both for you guys in this post just in case you’re curious, also don’t worry this won’t be the only post I write today, I plan on writing another one possibly after this or a little later

I am not sure, but I do want to write another post……is it alright to say how weird this is!? I know I don’t normally do this, even when I started writing this post, I thought it to be a little cheesy, I don’t know why it’s so weird if there’s something you do and you want to share it, you shouldn’t feel weird about it, but I guess it’ll always feel like an odd thing to some of us…….

Maybe this topic should be the next post, there might be some more stuff to say with it, at least I feel there might, but anyway i’ll go and save it and end this post here, again if you guys are interested, here are the videos:

Music: It Sure Has Come Along Way

Dreams: Why Do We Have Them And What Do They Mean!?

Okay well there’s that one*breathes* anyway, I hope you’re all having a good day and to be continued I guess……

Let’s Talk: Cartoon Shows And One Of My Favorites!!

We’ve all been young before right!? Of course we have what kind of a weird question is that i’m sure you might be asking……just trying to start conversation is all i’d say!! No but really, we’ve all had one, two or a good couple of favorite tv shows growing and although I know not all we’re into cartoons tv shows, we’ve all had at least one or two cartoons that we just could not get enough of……..maybe so much that we may even still watch it to this day…….let’s be honest we don’t really grow too old for cartoon shows.

We may end up not really watching the ones that we did as kids, but there’s always that one show that grabs our attention no matter our age range……I have a couple of favorites or at least ones that I happen to find myself getting a little too happy about the moment I know it’s about to come on……

I can’t help it, it’s just a really good show alright, the show i’m going on about is called Craig Of The Creek……now this I have to say is the only show at the moment that I pretty much wait for to come on, I know a little weird, but there’s just something about the show that just……makes me happy, I don’t know what it is!? It could be because the show is pretty much about adventure and enjoyment or maybe just something else completely…….

Now before you guys think i’m writing a whole review here, i’m not when it comes to shows and movies I don’t really know how to review them and really give constructive notes about them, if i’m really into a show or movie i’ll just talk about that show or movie for as long as it interest me, same with video games and or music, but let’s get back to the show Craig of the Creek, I just admire and really appreciate the way the show is……

It’s not just this show for kids where there’s just random things happening in it, there’s a lot that happens in the show and you learn some things too which is nice, it’s good when you have cartoons that have something special to it and Craig of the Creek is one of those special shows, not only is it fun, but there’s a lot of lessons in it and the way the show is, is just something of it’s own, I wouldn’t be able to really explain it even if I tried…….

With most cartoons it can sometimes be a bit of a hit or miss when it comes to it trying to grab your attention and really have you truly enjoying it and that it mainly out of what exactly interests you, but with this show, I don’t see how you wouldn’t enjoy it, it just a down to earth, all around great show and maybe there’s moments where cartoon experts can say reasons to why they don’t like it or what could be better about it, but me I just love it,

There hasn’t been a moment to where I thought, I really don’t like this, but that’s just me, I just wanted to share that, I don’t know why, but I felt like talking about it…….Craig Of The Creek, a good favorite show of mine!!

Okay so heads up going to get a little promoty here, since we’re on the topic of cartoons, I just wanted to let you know that I recently did a video about songs within cartoons, not the theme songs, but songs that were written to be in a moment within the cartoons, if you guys are interested you can check it out here: Songs Within Cartoons and yeah, there’s that!!

So…..what’s your favorite Cartoon Show!?

All The Love ❤ ❤

Coincidences……I’m Now Wondering If I’ve Written About This Before!?……

So I feel like I might’ve talked about this before, but i’m also not sure so sorry if we’ve already covered this topic and you’re hearing it again, I just wanted to talk about something interesting that happened, so there’s a playlist that I always listen to called Wonderland, in that playlist there’s about an hour of music playing with different songs of course…….

Here’s the playlist in case you want to listen to it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxzG2UMAkRo&t=3850s

Now i’ve listened to this playlist a lot, I still listen to it, i’m actually listening to it now as i’m writing to be honest, but to get to the point here, so naturally I pretty much know every song that’s about to play because i’ve heard it so much, now this has nothing to do with the songs that play,

but with something else with the playlist, now if you’re like me and you’re someone that pays attention to detail, you’ll pretty much see everything to what you’re looking at right!? Yeah well there was a change that caught me off guard as I was listening to the playlist and it was very specific too, but I won’t say what or why……but what I will say is that the normal date to the playlist, the day it was uploaded, changed for a good moment, now I don’t know how long it was there for while listening, all I know is when I looked up it said Dec 10th, 2017, when it normally says Dec 11th, 2017…..

Me when that happened: Well something like it anyway…..it’s close enough

Now that may not be that weird, it might’ve been a weird glitch, but I don’t think it was, because uploads don’t change dates unless you’re re uploading or something, I wouldn’t really know actually, all I know is that it was weird to see it at Dec 11th one moment and then look up to see Dec 10th the next.

Now I know what you’re thinking, proof or it didn’t happen, well I would gladly share it……but I didn’t screenshot it……yeah I know I should’ve, but it was the last thing on my mind and it wasn’t until after I refreshed the tab where I thought “I probably should’ve screenshot that”

but before that came to mind, I went and opened a new tab just to see and make sure I wasn’t going crazy and when I saw that I wasn’t, I was more confused about it, so yeah……that happened!! 😀 It was really weird,

For a split moment it was a different day and I didn’t even think to screen shot it until after it happened, which i’m kinda upset about, because I could’ve relooked at it and showed you, but…..yeah….now whether you believe this or not is fine, but I know what I saw and that’s all I got sooo I just thought i’d share that weird moment!!

Did I go a little overboard with it!? Maybe, Is it a coincidence!?……..Nope, I feel I was supposed to see that and also there are no coincidences,……so has something like that ever happened to you guys, i’m curious to know if so!?

All The Love ❤ ❤

Weird Moments Am I Right!?

So it’s about 9 o clock at night right now, it just turned 9, well a little while ago anyway…….it’s around 9:15…..okay looked up at the time it’s around 9:16 now as i’m writing this, obviously the time will change the more I continue to write…..it just did, but let’s stop talking about the time yeah…….okay let’s get this out the way, I know you’re probably pretty confused right now, but don’t worry so am I…….I watched one video…….alright maybe a few more than one and all of sudden, i’m full of all this weird energy, now when I say weird I just mean a whole lot of randomness is happening with me

Can’t explain it, you know sometimes you just happen to come across some randomness and it just stick with you from their on, now i’m not complaining about it, I just needed to share it in some form, cause sometimes, most time, when we’re having weird not making sense moments who knows the kind of randomness we’ll get or what kind of randomness we’ll get……this is an example, you don’t know if you’re making sense half the time, but maybe that’s alright…….why question it, when you can just easily let it occur, it’s not harming us so why think otherwise on it!?

We should express it how we feel it in the moment, so yes sure some of us have conversations here and there to ourselves (some of us all the time) and maybe we turn some of what we say into a random song for no apparent reason, because it’s just what we’re feeling in the moment I guess, there’s nothing wrong with that, sometimes we need to do those things,

So we not only keep sane, but we also know that we don’t have to be serious all the time…….having random moments like that can really change how we may feel and those moments can help us to feel better and make us laugh at the same time because they’re so unexpected, sure we may ask ourselves what the heck is wrong with us through it and not really understand what’s going on when those unexpected burst of random weird energy happens…..

but maybe it’s for the best, maybe we’re suppose to not know what the heck is going on……by just letting it happen and going with it, we enjoy it more and embrace it, which is probably something we should do a little more often, so if you are having a weird moment, where you’re finding yourself doing all these random things, let it be where it’s at for that moment……

and don’t question the length to it, just let it have it’s moment…….*she says realizing just how long this post has become*………i’m cool, no worries 🙂 You guys have a good night and embrace your weird moments, because although they are unexpected……they’re also the best!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Did I Mention It’s March Already!? Yeah……

Soooo for those who didn’t know, which i’m sure you might’ve, but if not, we had a leap year this year which means that the month of February had a extra day in it and I gotta say, yesterday was probably one of the longest days ever, well at least it felt like was, the day kinda took it’s time yesterday which isn’t bad, it was just pretty long is all, but February is now over and we have entered the month of March……already!? I say this, but March kinda took a while to get here I suppose, if you really think about it, each month so far has really, taken it’s time, which doesn’t happen often…….

Maybe it’s just the year for it, who knows really……Man March has started out with quite the approach, a lot is happening to where you’re just having to feel prepared, yet sometimes you wonder if you’ve prepared the proper way for it, does that make sense!? Some things can still seem unclear,

but you’re having to trust that things will work out fine, even when you’re finding it a little hard you know!? I guess we just need to roll with the punches as best as we can and keep positive even when we’re having to push through it all……..it’ll be alright though, sure it may seem like it’s everywhere and we’re having to take it as it’s coming, but it’ll be alright, the month just started right!? We gotta have some positive mindset on it.

All The Love ❤ ❤

Now Playing: Keep Your Head Up By Andy Grammer

I’ve been coming across this song a bit more these days, I rarely listen to it unless i’m listening to the songs off my phone and even then I don’t hear it very often, I think it only tends to come on when i’m in a low mood and that’s probably the reason it finds it’s way through my shuffle whenever i’m listening to the music on my phone and not on Spotify or Youtube…….

Even though I rarely hear it, I would still consider it a favorite of mine, all time favorite……maybe i’m not sure, but it is a song that I really like and also one that I find myself singing along to whenever I hear it, now I know Andy Grammer has a lot of songs, but I only know I believe two songs from him, this one and Honey I’m Good, for all I know though, I might’ve heard his other ones too, but haven’t realized it, but I really do like this song

It’s one of those songs where if you’re ever feeling a little doubtful with what you’re doing or with things in general, listening to this song can really help as a mood booster and give you that bit of confidence and some reassurance that regardless to how we may feel and how we think most of the time, we shouldn’t let the negatives get to us so much…….

With this song you really can appreciate the lyrics to what Andy has written here, it’s a reminder that no matter how rough things can get and no matter what we may say to ourselves and think, we should always keep our heads up and find a way to look towards the positives and just do our best to keep going, as well as trust that it’ll all be alright and will all work out in the end.

Now that all being said it’s not always easy to do those things, but as long as we try and are mindful with how we think and feel, we’ll find that it’s not always so hard, it’s just the knowing and awareness of it, as well as allowing ourselves to be okay and accept that everything is process and whatever progress we make big or small, everything will turn out alright, we just have to do our best to keep going and keep our heads from looking towards the ground too much, it may take some reminding, but know that’s okay!!

Here’s the song if you guys want to listen to it: Keep Your Head Up By Andy Grammer it’s an old song, but it’s still pretty darn good if you ask me……I hope all of you all are having a good weekend and are all well!!

All The Love ❤ ❤
