Next Up….Still Alive By Alexz Johnson (Updated) With Added Thoughts

Good Afternoon and Happy Monday, hopefully it’s a good one for you all so far! I’m feeling pretty good today, I’m a lot older than I was yesterday…..still getting used to that though, but other than that, I’m feeling pretty alright, hope you all enjoyed your weekend by the way…..have I mentioned it’s now Tuesday, no!? *Writes in Tuesday* sorry about that, I tend to confuse the days….hope you’ve all been having a good day so far, my mood today is a bit less energetic compared to yesterday, but I still feel pretty okay I’d say!

So today’s topic of the day is a Now Playing as you can see up there in the title, at least that’s what it was supposed to be, I think I’m going to move this post to a different day so it matches with the podcast episode that I want to re record! I’ve been doing a lot of these lately, that being due to the fact that there’s a lot of artists that I like talking about…..originally I had this in mind as a Podcast episode where I’d go over the track list and give my best thoughts about it and I’ve done that…..only it turned into an hour long episode and I didn’t feel like anyone would want to listen to me talk for an hour, plus I wasn’t able to really share it on the day of the anniversary like I wanted…..there’s some reasons there, but I’m not going to get into that, personal stuff!

So I went ahead and recorded it again to see if I’d be able to have it be less of a long episode which I did manage…..but I kinda want to do it over again because I want to get it right, not saying the first two ones weren’t good I just feel like I could do better with it so because I missed both the anniversary upload I wanted originally to do and missed my first Monday episode upload….I’m going to try my hand at it again tomorrow and possibly have it scheduled for either Friday or Saturday! Friday seeing as though she released the album on a Friday last year on the 8th of May, only instead of the 8th it’ll be the 14th…..and Saturday being because she had a listening party for the album, buut it was on the 15th of April….that I didn’t know,

I was there for the listening party, but I forgot that she did it in April…..however because it’s the 15th this Saturday and this past Saturday was the 8th, the day the album was released….I’m probably going to lean more toward Saturday in posting it, even though it’s already a year since the albums release, but it’ll be a year and a 1 week so I feel like it’ll still counts, plus 5 is my lucky number, I like to think of it to be lucky anyway, so the 15th is looking like the choice and winner here! I also kinda had something I was going to try my hand at on Friday, even though technically the topic I have in mind was an April thing that I had no clue about until April was pretty much over…..

but the day being the 14th still in a way makes it count and that’s the story I’m sticking with alright, I’m still thinking on that one though, but I might just do it, so stay tune for all of that! That’s pretty much all I got for this post, keep a look out for my album thoughts on Alexz Johnson’s Still Alive album coming to you guys this weekend and whatever I have for you guys this Friday!

P.S.

Don’t know why I’m just thinking about this now, but I probably should do these type updates more often for my podcast, might be useful….

25-26

Quite the title I know, I’m just kidding haha! Don’t really know why I chose that as the title, it just randomly came to me and I thought it was a neat one, plus it’s pretty themed too, I’m just going to say that….I’ve got a couple thoughts that I wanted to get out, I’m doing a bit of self reflecting, been kind of doing it for about a few days now, maybe a couple of weeks….I tend to self reflect on random occasions to be fair! I already sorta let most of my thoughts out yesterday as a Podcast episode, although I haven’t actually quite posted it just yet, I’ve been thinking about it though, I don’t normally like to talk upon my own thoughts and feelings as I’ve stated a few times before on here…..I don’t like talking about what I’m thinking, It feels weird to me, I don’t really like having that kind of low energy type thing….

I prefer to talk about things that I enjoy and mean a lot to me instead of my actual feelings, because no one really likes to share that kind of thing especially when you know you’re in this deep thought mode, you try and brush it off and put it away, but you tend to notice that it’s never quite far from you and with the way I always find myself thinking….no one wants to hear that all the time and that’s just how I genuinely feel, it’s why I rarely share on what I’m feeling, like I know it’s alright to share your emotions at times, but I just always find it hard for me to do, because I never can find the words to make it sound less…..complaint like, I don’t know why I always feel it to be such a bothersome thing, I just always do! I know there’s nothing wrong with it…..I just have a hard time expressing my true emotions to people,

I rather try and work through my current thoughts in the moment when I’m feeling it and not have to talk about it to people…..but I guess when you need to let it out, you need to let it out….keeping it to yourself isn’t always the best thing, although if it’s not your thing then you shouldn’t force yourself, because eventually when you feel like you’re ready to express yourself, I always feel you will in some way or form….we all have moments and sometimes we all just need to allow ourselves to have those moments, be it in private, sharing to someone else or just when you feel you may need a bit before actually being vocal about your thoughts and emotions, it all comes down to preference!

When it comes to sharing on things that can be hard to share, it’s okay if you’re the type that only shares every now and again and if you’re someone that finds it works better when you share you’re thoughts not daily, but every other day that fine too, but if you’re someone that rarely shares because you find it a bit hard or because it’s not your thing that’s alright too, whatever works best, we just got to accept the type of person we are when it comes to that, I’m in between every now and again and rarely, sharing upon my thoughts is something I don’t really like doing, but if I feel that I need to, in order to give myself a bit of a clear and refresh mind then I will even when it’s a bit hard,

For the most part though a lot of my thoughts lately are out of my worries and fears and me overthinking everything, not that I do it on purpose, I really do try not to think the way I do, but sometimes my mind can just get to me a bit, I guess you just have to allow it to be sometimes as well as do your best to not let it get to you too much! How have you all been feeling lately!?

Update A.K.A Promo Time!!

I ended up re recording that podcast episode I was talking about earlier in the post, I wanted to do it differently, so if you would like to check it out you can find it here: Just Chatting it’ll be up on Anchor as well as Spotify just a heads up (on Anchor it’ll say May 7th and on Spotify it’ll say May 8th, I think the times a bit different on Spotify I’m not really sure) but it’s just a chill chatting session on a few thoughts I had similar to this post, just with a bit more added so if you get curious check it out!

Today’s Theme Word Is….Why!?

Confused aren’t you!? Yeah I figured I mean who writes that as a title….apparently this girl here! Now I’m not going to ask any why questions, because then it’ll just bring down the mood of things, what I’m going to do instead is try my best to turn it in a way, you might be thinking to yourself what I mean on that…..let me just state that I don’t really know myself I’m just going to go with it here! We have the word Why as our theme and we’re wondering what’s going on with it, well they’re both starter titles of two songs that ended up in my head, one of the songs that started my day was Sabrina Carpenter’s song Why which is one of my favorites by the way, I woke up singing it myself this morning for some random odd reason, didn’t question it, I just simply went with it while it was hanging about.

Then we have the song Why So Serious by Alice Merton, which I just found out is a UK artist a bit of moment ago when I looked up the meaning to the song, because it got stuck in my head, I mean I did listen to it a bit earlier today which could be the reasoning for that, but I also was listening to other songs which means either one of those songs could’ve gotten stuck in my head, but nope just this song so far, not that I’m bothered, I actually really like the song, I was just curious to what it actually meant and I found out what it meant and then I laughed and smiled to myself because it’s meaning is something that is hard for me to get passed, not in a bad way, just more on the sense of taking it as advice in a way, pretty much the song is all about trying to take life less seriously, which is something I always tend to have a bit of an issue with, I do try, but there are times when my mind gets the better of me and makes me worry about the smallest things that I know aren’t necessarily a big thing….it’s just how my mind is okay!

That aside, I like the song, both songs actually, but Why So Serious by Alice Merton is really good song, I just finished discuss a bit about it on my new episode of my podcast, yeah that podcast that I keep mentioning here and there, just to remind you guys in case you want to check it out, speaking of reminders this song is actually written as a reminder for Alice like, she wrote the song as a note for herself, I won’t get too much into because I actually spoke about it in my recent episode, even though I already kind of told you it’s meaning there still is a little bit more too it, not too much, but a bit and I actually think it’s pretty cool how she chooses to go about writing her songs….

I know that obviously everyone writes from personal experience and everything, I mean I like to think that every kind of music has something personal about it….whether it’s by lyrics or just instrumental wise, you can tell a whole lot on what someone is trying to say with an instrument, sure there aren’t any words to interpret it’s meaning and emotion, but if you really listen to an instrument at times you can just feel what it’s trying to communicate, sometimes without realizing it, it can catch you off guard, but I guess we can save that one for another time, because that’s not what this post is about is it!? I mean it can be, but I think I’ll save it for later, I didn’t quite expect it to go that deep there…..but you can always feel what an artist is saying with how well they express through their lyrics and I always love hearing it,

Sometimes it’s one of the best ways you can relate to and Why So Serious is one of those songs that I find myself connecting to a bit, plus you got to love it’s groovy electropop sound to it….I just found out she in the electropop genre, which is pretty cool, I only have one rule with music, I just gotta like it and it has to make sense so I guess that’s two!? As long as I feel the song and connect to it or just enjoy it in general I’m perfectly fine with it and I like Alice Merton, so far, she’s a pretty good artist…..same goes for Sabrina Carpenter she’s got some good songs too and she’s a good actress as well, definitely recommend checking them both out if you never heard of them before or are just curious!

PROMO TIME:

Seriously guys, I get really weird doing this, believe me okay….but I just uploaded a new episode to my podcast talking about Alice Merton and her song Why So Serious as well as some other things so if you want to check that out you can find the episode here: Now Playing…..Why So Serious by Alice Merton on Anchor where I normally record and it’s also on Spotify along with all the other episodes I’ve done *hint, hint* but yeah, check it out if you get curious, alright promo over!

Hope you all are having a good one!

Now Playing….Car Radio By Twenty One Pilots (Part 2!? I Might’ve Discussed This One Already… Let’s Just Call it A Revisit)

Good Afternoon, hope everyone’s doing alright! Now before I actually get to this topic, I’m not exactly sure if I already had a look at this song and spoke upon it, I just wanted to give thoughts to the lyrics and express my thoughts on the possible meaning in my own words of it…..if I already did talk on it sorry if this is a repeat, but if not then cool! Now onto the topic of today…..

Artist: Twenty One Pilots

Song: Car Radio

Album: Vessel

Why are we talking about this song today!? Well truth is…..I just wanted to look at the lyrics of it honestly and see if I can do a proper review on it, in a sense….now just to put this out there in case some of you that do read my posts are reading this now or maybe some of you have just discovered my blog site…..I know I already talked about Twenty One Pilots and I expressed how I’m not a HUGE fan of them, in a sense of I don’t really keep up with them, I do like some of their songs though and I think they’re very talented artists, even though I may not know too much about them, I still enjoy some of the music that they bring to their fans! I also like to think of them as very nice people which I’m sure they are!

Now on to the song that is Car Radio…..I can’t really say when I first heard this song and where I was when I heard it for the very first time, but I do remember hearing for the first time and watching the music video to it if that makes sense!? I can remember watching it on the tv somewhere and seeing Tyler, I believe his name is and him being in a….what looked like a red room on the floor and then randomly jammin’ it out on stage alongside his drummer and friend Josh. That is the best way I can describe ever encountering the song, now when we think of the lyrics or look at the lyrics, there’s a lot of deep meaning obviously to it…..you really feel each emotion that he brings to the song, to highlight a few of the lyrics, first you got the opening which reads:

” I ponder of something great, my lungs will fill and then deflate, they fill with fire, exhale desire, I know it’s dire my time today….I have these thoughts so often I ought, to replace that slot with what I once bought, cause somebody stole my car radio and now I just sit in silence…”

and then the one line I want to add is…..

“Sometimes quiet is violent”

Now with those lines alone, you obviously can see the frustration, well what I would call frustration anyway…that Tyler is delivering here, we all know the whole feeling of becoming hopeful and excited by something and then feeling like you have to dim it down because maybe in the moment, it can feel a little too good to be true right!? Now there’s that line of pondering, where you’re feeling yourself thinking about things a little too much then you probably should, mash that with the line “Sometimes quiet is violent” and you’ll soon find yourself just caught in this moment of just overly thinking, now you’re feeling overwhelmed, you don’t know what to do with yourself and you’re trying everything and anything just to get yourself out of that thought mode…..now we come to the lines that read:

“I’m forced to deal with what I feel, there is no distraction to mask what is real”

This line alone, first let me just say, is probably one of my favorite lines in this song, because it just without warning drops a whole lyric that makes you take a moment to come to the realization of, no matter how much we try and keep our minds distracted from all the worries, doubts, fears, whatever we’re stressing ourselves out about and pretty much says that not even music can be a distraction to what we’re feeling in the current moment that we’re feeling it and it’s a bit odd because a lot of the time we listen to music to escape or just because we love listening to it, but if you really think about it, we tend to only hear a song and sing along to it if we know it or it’s a favorite of ours,

Only do we truly listen to a songs lyrics….when we’re in the state of mind of feeling a certain emotion, if you notice it’s not until we’re feeling a bit crappy or just not having the best of days to where we really hear the lyrics of song, I mean it doesn’t necessarily have to be when you’re feeling low, it could be when you’re happy as well, but a lot of the time we pay attention to the lyrics when the day just feels off…..why is that!? It’s kind of like your ears just know the right moment to listen, the only time we actually truly listen to the lyrics of a song beside on a not so great day, is when we’re listening to it for the very first time, after that we already know the song, we’ll sing to it, do a little dance and just pretty much hear it from then on….we don’t listen to it until a random time calls for it, which is really weird…..

I guess in a sense, maybe we don’t always listen to the lyrics closely because in the moment we don’t need to, we just enjoy it, but it’s when we’re “in our feelings” so to say and I mean that more on the term of just in general, when our minds are becoming to feel as though it’s on an overload setting….where music just knows what it is we need, sometimes we need to force ourselves to deal with sitting in silence and dealing with whatever it is that keeps clouding our minds and trying to get through the issue that we keep trying to avoid and procrastinate on, which is why you’ll find some songs tend to come on more regarding that feeling if that makes sense!?

Like you have different categories for each emotion, guess that’s why we keep making playlists! That aside, Car Radio is literally the song to play when you know how you’re feeling and you just need to allow those feelings to take place as they’re happening, because sometimes that literally all you can do, play a song let it say how you’re feeling and hope that it does it’s job and helps you to feel a bit better in getting whatever it is you needed to get out….out!

Now I know there’s a lot more to the lyrics of Car Radio, but I actually feel I’ve said what I wanted to say with certain lyrics, I also feel like I already discussed on the second verse of this song in one of my old posts can’t tell you if it was the one on Twenty One Pilots or one of my entry post where I would just write on my thoughts, but I feel I brought that up already and so I think I’ve said what I felt I needed to say in a sense to these lyrics, I didn’t know where this was going to go I was just hoping it would make sense as I was going along with it, I just wanted to talk a little on it!

I really love the lyrics to this song, it’s got so much depth to it and it’s like what you expect it to be, it doesn’t give you any idea of being something else then what you see it as, it’s literally just saying “this is me, this is what I’ve been feeling, here you go” this song is not afraid of showing it’s vulnerable and real authentic side here and that is what I love and appreciate about it, It’s one of my favorite songs by the duo and I just love everything about it, it gives you a lot to feel to where you just resonate with it…..if it’s your kind of thing anyway, everyone’s different!

That’s pretty much it, hope you all are enjoying yourselves today!

P.S.

There’s two different versions of this song, I just found that out recently, I’m sure most of you already know about it though, I just thought it was cool!

All The Love ❤ ❤

I’ve Got The Month Of May

I was going to go with N’SYNC, but I chose to do it old school and go with The Temptations, plus I thought it was best suited seeing that I literally do have the month of May so it works out! I seriously cannot believe that we have just arrived at the end of April, I do got have to say though, I do appreciate how the months are taking their time to arrive, at least that’s how I personally feel, can’t really speak for everyone else, but I like to think that each month so far has stayed a while, in a sense of they haven’t over stayed, but have just been enjoying themselves for the time they were here for, it’s nice, but that’s just how I have been looking at it, might be weird to say, who knows!

Now although May is set to arrive in a couple of hours, we still have to spend one more day with April and really let her know that she did alright, sure we probably had our up’s and downs, but I got to say that I have a soft spot for April, I mean she gave us a beautiful Super Moon the other night, so gorgeous it was, I didn’t get a photo on the day of it, but I did get one where it was big and bright before the actual Pink Super Moon, I did see it glow though! April for me, has it’s mixed feelings, I do like it, but it also makes me go “oh gosh” that’s only because it’s quite a special and important month to me in many different ways, but yeah April and I see eye to eye and at times don’t, but I still like to acknowledge it as well!

When it came to the month of April, I won’t say it was bad, but it definitely had it’s frustrating and non favorite moments we’ll say, but all that aside, it wasn’t a terrible month, I’m going to choose to take the positives of this soon ending month that is April and I’m going to hope and count on this month that will soon be called May and just trust that all is well with it, because to be honest…..I’m slight wary on it, you might be thinking why!? I have my reasons, but I have a lot of hope that it will be fine, because I’m going to do my damn best to make sure that it is! Just like April, May and I have our moments, but it’s still the month that I have a soft spot for, can’t really tell you how it’s going to be this month, to be fair we all won’t really know how it will be…..guess we’ll find out once we’ve entered it and sat with it for a while, but until then, we’ll wish April a safe and well trip and welcome May once she’s all set!

Here’s a few photo’s I’ve taken throughout the month of April and just some personal favorites of mine ^_^ a bit crazy knowing this is the last blog post of the ending month, hope you like the photos I’ve shared, I’ve been kind into taking pictures of things that inspire me lately, not as much, but somewhat!

Podcasting Schedule….

How’s Everyone’s Thursday Been Going!? Hope you all have been enjoying yourselves, alright so I wanted to write a quick post on the schedule of my podcast episodes, now I’ve been trying my hand on recording podcast episodes for about a month now and at first it was just to give a try and see how I liked it and everything, but since then, I have actually been enjoying myself when recording episodes, I actually really like it! Now I will admit that at first I didn’t really have an actual schedule, I was just posting whenever I recorded a new episode, but I like to think that I have found a good footing on the days that I upload to Anchor and Spotify, I always record my episodes towards the evening on Fridays and sometimes I’ll also upload on that day depending on the length of the episode, if it’s not too long then I’ll have it up then, but if I need to look at it a bit, then you normally see it on a Monday or other days!

Now so far my episode uploads are, Fridays (Recording always, uploads every so often) Mondays and Wednesdays, I’m also going to be adding Saturdays, but just like Fridays it’ll be on certain days only on Saturdays! Now to give you an insight on what my content of the episodes I share at times on my podcast, it’s just a hangout session kind of podcast, I like to share upon topics of music, certain video games and just give my best thoughts to those kind of topics, I also try and share on some thoughts of my own in terms of little reminders and personal things that I might write here on this blog and want to share sometimes on my podcast, just in case I have other things to add that maybe a little too long of post to write! It’s pretty much interest based the content of my Podcast,

I share on loads of different topics mean something to me in the moment! I just want everyone that comes by to have a listen to chill out and hopefully enjoy themselves, because I enjoy myself, so hopefully with a set schedule so far, anyone reading this or listening because this is probably going to be in the next episode that I do, you’ll know when to look out for it, I also post new episodes and even blog posts on my Twitter so if ever you’re unsure to when I upload or just want to catch up or say hi even, you can find me there, my Twitter is literally the name of my blog Life As A Daydreamer I’d like to think I’m pretty friendly, I don’t mind getting to know people and say hi, I can be a bit shy, but I can also be the one to start conversation too depending how I feel haha!

Those are my upload days so far with my podcast episodes, if by any chance I need to change it or I got other things to add on anything, You’ll see it in a new blog post update of course, this promoting thing is very new to me and I can get a bit nervous with it, but I’ve been doing my best with it and everything else I do, which is all I can really do, but yeah if you would like to come by and hang out with me, those have been the days I’ve found myself uploading the most and that’s why I thought I’d just write a post on it! I have a few episodes up now if you would like to have a listen, some are a bit lengthy I’ll be honest, but I do have shorter episodes too, so get cozy, grab a snack, friend, pet, favorite drink and come by and hang out if you like!!

Daydreamer’s Podcast is the name of my Podcast and like I said a bit earlier you can find it on either Anchor which is where it’s hosted or you can have a listen on Spotify, maybe you prefer it as background noise instead of a sit and listen which is completely fine, however you choose to enjoy it! I hope you all are having a great evening or day in general and I hope to see you around ^_^

All The Love ❤ ❤

My Thoughts On Stardew Valley So Far….

Good Morning Everyone! (It’s the morning in the time of me writing this) hope you you’re all having a nice Tuesday, for today’s post I wanted to talk about a game that I’ve been playing for a bit of a while now, by the title you can probably take a really big guess on what that game is, if you said Stardew Valley, you’re right, okay so just want to make it clear that, I’ve not played this game that long so it’s not going to be a full on review, the only time I’d give my honest thoughts fully with games is when it’s a favorite of mine and I know I’ve been enjoying it to the point where I speak upon it a lot, for example Animal Crossing, I’ve played that game since Gamecube, even though I didn’t start really getting into it, until New Leaf…..but this post isn’t about Animal Crossing, It’s about Stardew Valley!

Now I will give you guys a bit of a heads up, whenever it comes to new games that I’m not really familiar with, I don’t really know how to talk about them, so I’m just going to give my best honest thoughts on this game and hope that I don’t offend anyone who really enjoy this game, with not having much knowledge on these type of games, at the same time this is my post and if you don’t like what I write about it…..feel free to find a post that you do enjoy, however I don’t really plan on saying anything bad about it, because I’ve still yet to really get to know the game, I was just stating that part on more of a not knowing much about it….. onto the thoughts though!!

Alright so since starting the game, which I actually started playing a day after the anniversary of both my blog and my Animal Crossing journey on a new Island on my main Island (April 11th) started the game (April 12th) Yeah I know crazy, you know what else is crazy!? Today marks 1 week since I’ve touched the game, like I haven’t played in a week, probably not that crazy I know, but still it’s kinda weird how it all intertwined, don’t mind me I tend to make something small into something big, that’s just me!

That note aside, even though I had the game on my console for a bit of a while, I didn’t start playing it until recently, I think I had it downloaded on my console for like a month or something, I can’t really remember, but starting the game, I found it to be interesting when I first started it up, it’s got a old fashion pixel style going on and normally I don’t really play those type of games, it was the same when I played A Short Hike it was something completely new to me that I had never tried, but I grew to enjoy it! By watching a lot of different gamers, I heard a lot about Stardew Valley and it always interest me, when I would hear about it, but I never gave it too much attention, the first time I purchased a Stardew Valley game was when I bought the game for a friend of mine, me being the curious little pup that I am,

I wanted to see what it was about and so when I played it for the first time, I’m not going to lie…..I played it for a couple hours and then after that first time, I just would look forward to playing it, it’s a very cute and relaxing game and it’s pretty similar to Animal Crossing which is my all time favorite game, I love that game with all my heart! Again not an Animal Crossing post….got to remember that!! Stardew Valley that’s our focus…..playing the game, I actually grew to enjoy it, that being said…..there are some pretty big differences to Stardew Valley compared to Animal Crossing that I had to get used to…..for starters the inventory….I’ve been trying to upgrade my inventory to have more spots to put things in since I started….. and I still yet to get it!

Selling things is a lot different also, even with the things I put up to be sold, I also feel I never get the amount I need so I’m able to get that new shiny beautiful backpack in that store I can’t remember the name of, it just seems to be like a whole mission and a half just to get it, like I don’t understand…..also I’m NOT good a farming and that’s LITERALLY the whole concept of the game!! You get passed down your grandfathers farm to maintain and take VERY good care of and I can’t even do that right, it’s like why’d you give me the farm grandpa!? I just always feel bad, because while I’m supposed to be having the farm looking like it’s 30 and THRIVING, I’m just doing an awful job at it,

I’m just ignoring the farm while my dog in game just barks all the time, I give it love and water don’t worry!! Before you even say anything, you can’t feed the dog in Stardew Valley I looked it up, I didn’t want to be a bad owner, it has a whole dog bowl behind the farm and the only thing you can give it is water…..WATER!! You want to know the best part though!? It doesn’t even drink the water, the water just disappears the next day, like what!? I don’t get it, I almost felt bad and then realized I didn’t need to feel bad about it after all!

You know I just realized that I have a lot more thoughts on this game then I anticipated, I was sitting here talking about a certain dance event in Stardew Valley that takes place in Spring to myself and then I thought, I’m going to turn this into a podcast episode and I did, just finished actually! That episode highlights what’s already on here and adds to that as well so when I look it over and post it, I will add it to this post and you can take a listen if you want, I wanted them to have different personalities which they will in a way, I think you’ll see a difference to this post and that episode! I know that if I wrote it all here this would be too long so, I hope that you enjoy both contents, but so far those are my thoughts on Stardew Valley, it’s a pretty good game that I’m still getting used to and trying to understand, but so far I like it!!

P.S.

I just looked at some of the Stardew Valley farms as I was looking for some Stardew Valley pictures and my Animal Crossing Island is better then my Stardew Valley farm…..I have got to figure this game out lol!!

Update

My latest podcast episode is up for listening if you guys want to check it out: Stardew Valley Thoughts (So Far) you can also find it on Spotify by searching Daydreamer’s Podcast

Happy Birthday Planet Earth!!

I’m not really sure how old you are, but all that matters is that you’re doing well and are still going strong, for everyone else Happy Earth Day!! I hope for those reading this right now that you’re doing well yourselves and are having a nice Thursday! Now for the topic….is there a topic!? Nope, not a specific one anyway, so this post is going to be pretty much whatever comes to mind, call it a surprise post if you will, might make it more interesting if you do if I’m being honest lol!!

Let’s turn it into a game, what kind of stuff can we add to this post to make it feel interesting!? Hmmm….well here’s what we know, we’re in the process of the Spring season, which is also allergy season and let me tell you, I’ve got a bit of allergies happening, but it’s going away, I’ve gotten pass the sneezing stage, where I was having a sneezing attack every few minutes these past couple of days, it’s clearing up little by little though! I know it probably hasn’t gotten interesting yet, but I’m sure I’ll get there….since it’s Earth Day, let’s talk about some Earth Day things in way, like did you know that Venus is Earth’s twin!?

Okay you probably knew that one, but did you know that when Earth had formed, it was all because an unknown planet or space rock had crashed into both Earth and Venus, but Earth had protection and it’s own armor which was it’s magnetic field, to keep it from having the massive impact that Venus took, it’s probably confusing I know, but you see at one point in space and time, you couldn’t really tell Venus and Earth apart, they literally looked the same! It took a collision to happen from another planet to have Earth be the Earth that we know and that a good amount of us out there love! With Venus on the other hand, well…..it’s full of fire, it’s literally called the hellish planet, now the debate is what’s hotter, the Sun or Venus!? Might be a stupid question, but that’s okay, because I’m the type to ask those types of stupid question and I’m alright with that!!

Seriously though I’d like to have a side by side on Venus’s heat level and the Sun’s heat level, yes the Sun might definitely win, but I like to think Venus can give it some serious competition alright, that’s just some stuff to know!

On a whole different random side note, when I played Animal Crossing: New Horizon earlier today, I expected to play the Nature Event in honor of Earth Day, in case some of you don’t know in Animal Crossing: New Horizons they have special events for certain holidays and they have a small little event for Earth Day, but anyway when I played the game earlier I was kinda looking forward to playing the event, but when I arrived at the town hall plaza, there was no Leif, no other Special Characters either…..well besides Flick the bug enthusiast, but yeah no it was just empty which was a little confusing to me, I then searched up when the Nature Day event was and I learned that Nature Day started on the 15th of this month and ended the 22nd which happens to be today! I thought that today would be the last day to do the event, whatever the event was this year, but apparently not, I personally think they should’ve kept it for the day of Earth Day as well because it would’ve worked well for one, but it is what it is!

I found out anyway that they removed some stuff from the event, which was cool (not that it was removed, just that I liked the things that they had with the event, just to be clear) wasn’t like a big thing, it was just a special bonus involving the nook miles, don’t know why they did that to be fair, but *shrugs shoulders and puts hands up* maybe I didn’t missed much after all who knows! Well that’s all of the thoughts that I have for this post, I just thought I’d share a couple things that came to mind, I know it was a bit random and I tried to keep it in the theme of today, so hopefully this was a somewhat interesting post to those reading this right now, I hope you all have a goodnight and Happy Earth Day or just Thursday!!

Let’s Talk: Frozen 2 (Movie Thoughts)

Gooood Morning, although it’s almost close to the afternoon here!! Hope everyone’s well and having a good day, so today I thought I’d talk about a movie that, honestly not going to lie I didn’t think I’d ever discuss upon this movie other than going on about how I never really liked it all that much, but then I was forced to watch the the second part of this movie and it turns out…..I actually really like Frozen 2…..like I REALLY like it, only the second one though, just to be VERY clear about that!! I’m still not all that big of a fan of the very first Frozen movie okay!! It’s an alright movie, but no…*shaking head* nooo, if we have to say something nice about the first movie, well I’ve grown to like Let It Go, yes I know it’s the most popular song of the first Frozen movie, but I got to admit, it’s got good lyrics *Shrugs shoulders*

Let’s talk about the movie that we’re here for though, Frozen 2, the movie that I feel in my opinion has the better soundtrack to the first movie, by better I mean I like more songs from the second movie compared to the first one, now I will say that I’ve watched Frozen 2 twice and have listened to the soundtrack a few couple times…..I even have a few favorites saved on my Spotify so I listen to the tracks quite often, more when they come on randomly or if I want to listen to a specific song I’ll go out of my way and look for it, but yeah, I’ve listened to the soundtrack more times than I’ve watched the movie is what I’m saying!!

Let’s discuss this movie though shall we!? Now this won’t be a movie review because I don’t really know how to do those, so in this post we’re going to, well I’m going to try to describe what my thoughts were, when I first watched this movie, as for the soundtrack, I’ve got different plans for that so I won’t be discussing it here today, but the movie I’m going to do my best to give my thoughts and reaction of it…..so where do we start…..

Well I wasn’t thrilled at first when watching this movie, I didn’t want to watch it because I wasn’t really into the first one, but a friend of mine insisted that we watch it, after I told her I hadn’t seen it, so she went ahead and put it on and I wasn’t able to really escape from watching it with her…..so here we are on Christmas Eve watching Frozen 2, as we’re watching the movie, she keeps telling me I’m gonna like it and I’m like “we’ll see” I wasn’t sure if I would, but as I’m watching it, I find myself kind of getting into it, but I’m not saying anything because I know she’ll bring out the I told you so’s and it was too early to be saying all that, so I continued to see if I would get more into it as it progressed

Halfway into the movie and I’m like “okay it’s not that bad” the songs were really good, you got your funny moments, Olaf is pretty funny, I loved the whole scene where they’re in the forest and he’s looking for Elsa, Anna, Sven and Kristoff and he’s calling for a Samantha and he’s cracking up and says the famous line “I don’t know a Samantha”

I thought that was really funny, I laughed watching it!! I have my own theory or more like an idea on what they can do with that, the whole Samantha bit, but I also thought that maybe they were shouting out one of the people who worked on the movie or, oooor this proclaimed Samantha miiiight just be a foreshadowed character we see later, if they make a third movie, maybe a potential girlfriend for Olaf or just a new character they have in mind to add in the future, I think that’d be pretty cool, we’ll see I guess!!

At this point I’m actually enjoying the movie, I love the little lizard that Elsa befriends in the forest, he’s soooo cute like if I can have him myself I would…..maybe, he’s probably based off a real lizard so that’s why I say maybe…..but he really is cute, I like to think that, he’s Elsa’s new pet and sidekick partner and that! I like what they did with Anna again in this movie, I know she was a significant part in the first movie and they also gave her a significant part in this movie as well…..Elsa’s story is really beautiful, I like how they have the voice be as her guide to her discovering herself

I love how they gave her a spirit animal to help her along the journey that she’s on, that at first she herself isn’t aware of, but later throughout the movie she starts to be come more aware that with the voice that she’s following, how it’s trying to get her to come more into herself and learn something important as well and I guess as I was watching that all unfold, it was getting to me in a way, because I felt a weird connection to this movie and part me kind of didn’t like how I was enjoying this movie, but at the same time, a part of me was happy that I gave this movie a chance to change my mind about Frozen and the whole part at the end that I won’t spoil, here’s hoping I haven’t already spoiled too much already, but the thing at the end that I won’t talk too much about…..I liked it, it was a good choice, I did get emotional watching this movie, I’ll admit it…..okay…..I wasn’t expecting to, but I did and I’m okay with it sooo….

Final Thoughts!?

I have a very big soft spot for Frozen 2, I loved this movie, am I surprised about it!? Yeah because I honestly didn’t think that I would feel connected to it as much as I did, I wasn’t ready to feel this movie on a deeper level, I mean I wasn’t a fan of the first movie so I wasn’t expecting this movie to do much, but it did and I thought it was really good, I liked the story and the deeper meaning that it had and I hate to admit it…..but I’m K.I.N.D.A. obsessed with Frozen 2! Every time I see Frozen anywhere, I’m like “ooh Frozen” always referencing the second movie though, like at one point I didn’t like it one bit and then all of sudden the second movie comes around, I watch it and I’m fan girling than I’ve ever fan girled before in my life with it…..like seriously “Oh how the tables have turned” but it’s fine!

I really like the meaning behind things and the meaning that this movie brings, is the reason I like it so much, plus it’s actually really pretty and I think because they had fall and winter together in this movie, might also be the reason to why I prefer it to the first…..I LOVE the fall season, but also, that soundtrack….I’m looking forward to discussing about it and sharing my thoughts on it, especially that Kristoff track….laughing to myself just thinking about it….don’t worry it’s not that bad!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Welcome To The Daydreamer’s Podcast

Happy Saturday, hope you all are having a good day!! Now I know that I haven’t properly talked about this so I thought I’d have this post be the introduction for it…..a late introduction, but an introduction nonetheless!! Now in case a lot of you don’t already know I went ahead and created a podcast, some of you may already know if you’ve read some of my latest posts, but if you didn’t…..I have a podcast now, it’s called Daydreamer’s Podcast and I created it out of curiosity, I was actually writing a post and had just finished posting that post when I saw an opportunity to be able to turn a post into a podcast episode and so that’s exactly what I did, so I kind of have WordPress to thank for giving me the idea of creating one, I only have 2 episodes right now, but so far I’ve been enjoying myself,

I have found that I actually get pretty excited to record the next episode, which is something that comes rarely for me, but this is something I kind of been wanting to do for a bit of a while now, I tend to talk quite a bit and sometimes a lot of the things I want to share can be too long to write in a post and so I thought this was the perfect thing to give a try, It’s something I’ve always thought of doing and it’s something that has literally presented itself to me and why not give it a shot!!

Now the content to my new Podcast is going to be a bit of everything in the sense to the way I do it here on my blog, it’s pretty much interest based, so for example music, video games and sometimes serious topics that I feel I want to share upon and discuss a bit about…..sometimes I’ll even incorporate some blog post topic for the days where I feel I want to express a bit more, the two episodes that are up now were based off two blog posts, but it’s stuff like that! I just want to create a place that everyone can just hang out and hopefully have a good time!! I already recorded a third episode which should be up pretty soon, but if you guys are curious and would like to check out the last two episodes of my podcast, that would really mean a lot to me, you can have a listen to both episodes here:

The Latest Episode:

Ice Breaker (A Blog Post)- Ep. 1

Let’s Talk: 1 Year Of Animal Crossing: New Horizons- Ep. 2

For those who do manage to check it out the podcast, first I just want to say I appreciate it in advance and I hope you all enjoy the episodes that you decide to give a listen to, with that said, Welcome to The Daydreamer’s Podcast, I’ll be your host, Alexa, but you can just call me Lex or Lexa, I prefer it anyway! I hope you’re all able to enjoy the content and atmosphere that I do my best to bring to this podcast, hope I can get some of you to hang around and stay a while!! ^_^

All The Love ❤ ❤
