Now Playing: My Window By Jake Epstein (Songs From Degrassi Season 7)

If you guys don’t already know, i’ve been pretty into the Canadian show Degrassi, it’s one of my favorite shows to watch actually, not only are the topics on that show always great and interesting to see, but believe it or not, Degrassi has some pretty great songs to it as well!!

I’m always intrigued with the way the songs come out, most of them sound very good and the people singing the songs, they make you believe that they themselves have written them, but obviously it’s not always like that, but the way they perform it will have you thinking that it’s an original song.

I always find the writing of the songs they have for the characters who are meant to be singing them to be pretty fascinating, one of my favorites is the song My Window by Jake Epstein who play Craig Manning on the show for a good few seasons, i’m not really sure what it is about the song, but it’s just really good, Jake’s vocal’s are pretty damn amazing in this song, I can’t really describe his voice, but what I can say is, it’s very unique……

The way he performs My window is just something of it’s own and when you listen to the song, the words, the lyrics to it is just……I can’t seem to get a wording on it properly at the moment, but it’s just so, let’s just to say you really feel it……but again Jake’s vocals with the songs is amazing here!!

As we all know everyone has their own voice when they sing, some are powerhouses, some more soulful and others just have their own category that they naturally add themselves in and Jake Epstein is one of those that is just in his own realm when he sings, it really is hard for me to put him some place and maybe he doesn’t need to be in a specific place, sure there are probably other artists that are pretty similar to him in other ways,

but Jake alone just has this very indescribable unique style to him that you just can’t seem to help, but admire and with way he brings you the song, even if you can’t really get an exact idea on where exactly to put him, you still feel it, sometimes you can’t quite put your finger on something, but you still have a feel to it in someway you know!? My window to me is a really great song, I was actually trying to look up the meaning of it, but I can’t seem to get it at the moment even when looking at the lyrics to it……..

Again I don’t know what it is, but there’s just something to this song as well as Jake Epstein’s performance of it that makes me want to re listen to it every time, it might take a good few listens just to really truly understand the meaning behind it and to be honest, I don’t really mind it……

Top Favorites At The Moment…..

Disclaimer: I started this post Friday, but I just hadn’t gotten the chance to finish it just yet, but i’m going to be finishing it today so……on to the post!!

Well we’ve come towards the end of the week, hope everyone’s Friday is treating them all well and I hope you’re having good weather, it’s pretty cold and windy with a bit of rain, over where I am, although there’s not much rain happening at the moment, but the weather has been pretty gloomy these past few days, Spring should be around the corner soon so i’m sure it’ll clear up eventually, but to be honest…..I don’t really mind the cold,

Somewhat anyway, sometimes it’s too cold for my liking, but i’d say it’s better than being really hot so it’ll do for the meantime…….

Anyway, I thought since it’s the end of the week i’d talk about some of my favorite things that i’ve been enjoying lately, it’s been a while since i’ve done one of these, so I figured why not give a new update on some things that I have been into during this month and past month as well!!

First on the list……..RIME:

First on the list is one of my favorites to where i’d probably say it a second time, i’ve just started playing this game a couple days ago and it’s quite the story I must say, there’s so much to this game that a lot of the time i’m questioning just what exactly is going on, but whenever I play this game, I find myself becoming easily immerse in it, it’s just a really good game!!

I love adventure type games, where you get to explore and do all these different things…..now Rime is the first game that i’ve played that is more open world based, where you get to take your time and explore and see everything without having to automatically beat the game right away,

You’re not having to rush through it, with rime I find you have to have patients, what I like about this game is that it makes you really pay attention and look at everything, if you just play rime with the mindset of wanting to just finish the game, you’re going to miss a lot and I like that it allows you to really soak the world you’re playing in……in ha!!

It’s a game that i’d recommend giving a try and really letting yourself get lost in when you play, now there’s obviously some stuff to it, that can be a bit of a annoyance and it’s more the way the camera can get at times as well as it sometimes carries some lags with it, but other than that, it’s still a pretty top notch game, the stories great, even though i’m still putting the pieces that it reveals together, soundtrack to it is just beautiful!!

It’s just a really enjoyable and all around game that has really become one of my favorites at the moment, so again i’d really recommend it!!

2nd on the list……Dark Chocolate Kit Kats

Yeah probably a very weird and random thing to put on a list, but don’t worry this won’t be long, i’ve just been very obsessed with these lately, it’s just really good, I know that dark chocolate isn’t really everyone’s favorite, because it’s a bit more bitter than regular chocolate, but I really like these, I don’t eat them all time, that would not be healthy, but I must say these are simply the best, probably prefer them over the originals to be honest,

Don’t know why, I didn’t really eat kit kat’s all that often, in fact they were probably pretty low on the list of chocolate’s I liked, but when I tried this one for the first time, I couldn’t really get how good they were out of my head after trying them so yeah they’ve climbed a good few spots on the list.

Last on the list…….Mediative Chilled Music (as I like to call it)

This is the thumbnail from one of my favorite chilled mix playlist, if you’re curious to know who the artist of it is, I left it for you guys, but you can also find it in the videos description as well

I’m not really sure what it is about mediative music, but it’s soooo soothing and there’s so many different ones to choose from, that it’s ridiculous, but in a good way of course, i’ve been listening to it for a good few months now, but it’s great to have as background noise when you need to re clam yourself, if you’re reading working on something whatever you do really,

It just brings a good feeling with it, there’s one for every category, seriously not kidding, if you need something nice and calm to listen to, definitely try it out, if it’s something you’ve never considered doing before!! Here’s one of my favorites in case you guys are interested, i’ll leave a few actually:

Wonderland|Beautiful Chill Mix (BLUME)

Ambient Space Music (Relaxation Space Music)

Mountains|Beautiful Chill Mix (BLUME)

And that is all my favorites at the moment, not that big of a list, but it’s still good, yeah still good…. (says in a stitch voice….sorta) let me know what are your favorite things are at moment, i’d love to hear about it!! Hope you’re all having a good weekend, even though it’s almost over……hope you also had a nice week as well and hope you have a good upcoming one.

Today Is Monday…..

Monday’s are something aren’t they!? I mean you never really know what kind of Monday you’re in for, I mean you never actually know what kind of day you’re in for, for that matter, let alone Mondays……but if the week starts on a weird note and it’s a Monday……you’re going to be in for quite the day!!

How do you prepare or know the best way to handle situations that ended up doing a big 180 out of nowhere!? Well for one you try and stay as calm as possible and make sure to keep centered even when you start to shift a little, now that can sometimes be a little hard, but it’s all in the way you handle the ripple that has occurred, ripples as we all know are just small effects that happen when some kind of vibration comes into contact with it.

Now it’s not a huge effect, however it can still cause a bit of a disturbance, based off the way it arrives out of nowhere, but even when that happens just know that it’s only a slight one, for it to become a bigger one, you’d have to let it really get to you, but by letting it effect you greatly even when it’s for a short moment, you allow your energy vibration to be effected.

We want to avoid that, it may not always be easy, but in the times where we want to scream because everything is being flipped upside down and the day is just becoming a real mad one, just try and focus on the way the ripple actually looks and not the effects that it brings with it, when we choose to focus on the upside of a situation even when it may not seem like a big upside, we not only keep our energy level’s at bay, but we sometimes notice how nice the ripple on the water looks when it’s hit with something.

Also when things get a bit on the tense side of town, just take a couple of breaths and breathe, it may take a while to get back into a relaxed state, but it helps!! Just because there’s a small ripple in the water for a moment doesn’t mean we aren’t able to get through it, it just takes a bit of calm to do so, but don’t worry not all Monday’s are that bad, they’re just Mondays!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Now Playing: Bright By Echosmith…..

Good Morning to all and a Happy Sunday as well, hope you guys are having a good one and are enjoying your morning or had a good morning to those whose time is towards the afternoon or night already, time zones sure are interesting aren’t they!? Also don’t mind me, I woke up a little earlier than my alarm today, around 7:30am to be exact, it’s around 8:30am ish as i’m writing this, not sure why I got up so early, although i’m not complaining,

You find that you become a little more energized the earlier you get up so it’s fine!! Now that, that’s been shared, let’s talk about something we haven’t talked about in a very looong time, music!!

So I woke up singing this song to myself, not sure why it’s been playing in my head since i’ve been up, I just heard this song for the very first time in a long time yesterday and I gotta say it’s still a good one and i’d say one of my favorites, ayyye why not!? (might’ve spelt that wrong, but that’s okay) again though i’m not sure why it’s in my head, I went to look it up, because sometimes if a song gets stuck in your head, you can always look up the lyrics to see the meaning behind it and sometimes by doing that,

You find there’s a hidden message within the song for you to come across, however the only thing behind the song that I found is that, it’s a love song aaaaand that it was actually released today!! How weird is that!? The one time I have a song stuck in my head and happen to look it up to see the meaning behind it, turns out that the release date of it happen to be the same day it entered my brain, ain’t that something!? No, but seriously that’s a bit mad, although when it comes to coincidences, there is none.

Now I only know two songs from EchoSmith, this song the one i’m talking about which is called Bright and Cool Kids, both songs I actually like!! There’s not much else I can say, I don’t really know much about the band, apart from the exception of their two songs that i’ve heard from them,

So I can’t really say my thoughts about them, but I like their songs, even though I only know two of them……as for the main song we’re talking about here though, how crazy is it that, it came out 5 years ago today and on the same day ended up stuck in my head…..!? I don’t even have words to say right now, except for that’s mad and insane which are pretty much the same thing, but congratulations to Echosmith for reaching 5 years with their song Bright today, even if I had no idea until now about it!!

I’m not sure if their still making music, but i’m sure they’re like “can you believe it’s been 5 years since making and releasing this song” or something like that anyway, maybe they actually haven’t thought about it yet,

I’m not really sure, but either way it’s still pretty big when you hit a new target mark on something each year after it’s been released so, again congratulations to Echosmith on the anniversary of “Bright” and also thank you for having such a catchy song to share, luckily it’s a good one so, I don’t mind it being played repetitively in my head!!

P.S. By the way I looked it up, they are still making music and are actually going on a tour soon this year, not sure if the tour already started or if it’s coming up shortly, but for those who are fans of Echosmith and are interested, I thought you’d like to know!!

Trusting Our Own Insight…..

When it comes to our own insight on things, we don’t really trust ourselves a lot of the time and that’s because we tend to worry about all these different things that could happen and so because of that we become hesitate to want to try or share things that we feel we should try and or share, we question a lot of things, way more than we should actually.

We think too much on the worst parts than the possible best parts that could come from the things we share, as well as how we feel, sometimes even when something may feel right to us, we still feel unsure about it, which I guess is a natural reaction, I mean if it was something big then you’re going to get that kind of feeling right!? Whose to say though that,

We shouldn’t at least see about it…..if there’s an idea that we have in our minds should we not go forth with it!? If we just trust ourselves a little more with the things that we feel, who knows just where we will possibly be or go even, we won’t really know unless we take that step right!?

All The Love ❤ ❤

No Need To Try So Hard…..

Ask yourself this question…..why do we try so hard!? Did you answer it!? If so what did you say!? When we try hard to get things right, most often we find that it turns out not so right all the time, why is that!? Well it’s exactly what it is, we’re trying too hard, when in reality, we don’t need to.

Now you might be saying to yourself, well how else are we meant to do it!? Try hard a little less possibly….!? Yes I know how exactly!? Well for one, we gotta relax and chill out, breathe and let things flow at a natural state,

When we try too hard, we create resistance, which also invites stress, causing us to feel overwhelmed by everything and let me tell you it’s not a great feeling you know……we’re only adding pressure to ourselves by doing that, if we constantly worry about things not being a certain way and trying to get it right all the time, we wouldn’t have things be as natural as they are would we!? It’s okay to push yourself harder then you might normally at times, but when you start trying so hard to the point where you’re stressing yourself out, that is the moment where you need to step back and take a couple of breathers otherwise, you’re going to drive yourself mad.

Although it’s great to want to push yourself to be better, we don’t always have to try so hard to do that, we can do that and do our best all at the same time, minus the stress and feelings of being overwhelmed, just because something may seem or feel not all that great, doesn’t mean that is isn’t all that great, sometimes we may need to just relook at things or tweak something in order for it to make sense and come out right…..

It’s good to go on what you feel, but sometimes what we may feel to be not so good in our heads, actually isn’t all that bad, just keep that in mind……

All The Love ❤ ❤

Hope You Don't Mind Me Checking In…..

Hey……i’m not really sure how to start this conversation or slight conversation, i’m just checking in, I hope all is well and that your day was good, I know it’s a specific kind of day for you today, i’m not really sure how you’ve been feeling or if you’ve been okay, i’m sure you’ve been fine and are actually doing pretty well, I mean I know you’re doing well, but you know what I mean, not trying to be weird here or anything……

How was your day, I hope it went well and everything, I also hope that everything went well last weekend with what you had going, I didn’t forget, I know I probably could’ve messaged you this, but I didn’t know how or whether it was okay, but I still wanted to check in, since I knew what today was and just see how you were doing in someway, I hope that’s alright.

Anyway, I don’t think I have anything else to say here, but I hope you had a good day and are doing and feeling alright…..

All The Love ❤ ❤ ❤
