This Is Halloween A.K.A The Nightmare Before Christmas!

Well I’ve got the title down so that’s good! Good Morning everyone! Happy Monday, we have arrived to a whole new week….yeah the weekend sure went by quickly didn’t it!? Hope you all had a good weekend though…so what shall we discuss for the start of the week, gee I wonder!? Okay I’m sure you can all guess what we’ll be talking about here, that’s right today’s topic we’ll be on the pumpkin king himself Jack the Skeleton!! Now I’d like to think that a lot of people know of this movie and probably have it listed as one of their favorites even….I wouldn’t say it’s a favorite of mine per say, however I do really like this movie and whenever it is on, I watch it most time, it’s a really good movie!

It’s also very creepy at time, I’ve been watching a lot of Halloween movies these days, I mean we are in the season of it so might as well check out a few Halloween based movies and The Nightmare Before Christmas is the kind of movie that everyone plays around this time, it’s also the kind of movie that people play around Christmas as well….if you didn’t already know there’s even a debate on whether this movie is to be considered a Halloween film or Christmas film which is if you really think about, it’s really more Halloween then Christmas, I’m on that side yes, but also not on that side….

What I mean is to me it’s more Halloween then Christmas because let’s face it it screams Halloween, even when you get to the Christmas parts of the film, it’s has that undertone of Halloween to it, but I can understand people seeing it as a Christmas film because most people prefer to watch it around Christmas then Halloween…that being said I think it shouldn’t be a debate with “Is it Christmas or Is it Halloween” just go with it as you feel! If you prefer watching it during the Winter around Christmas time then it’s a Christmas movie, if you like to watch it the moment the Halloween season starts then it’s Halloween, although Tim Burton himself said it’s a Halloween movie not Christmas, but who says you can’t change the rules and decide with it how you feel it to be!

Anyway, is a very great and creepy movie, like there’s this one scene where Jack when he happens to get pulled into The Christmas world and he’s singing about what everything is, you’ll see him going through someone’s window and the way he does it is very unsettling, like seriously, you won’t notice it when you first watch it, but after a few times….you start to notice and question a lot of things in that movie also did anyone see Sally jump out of the tower and just land on the ground the way she did!? She’s lucky she’s able to just sow herself back together with her being a ragdoll kind of character…..goodness gracious, every time I watch that part I’m like “Sally girl, what the heck!?”

And let’s not forget the Boogieman is this movie…..he always gives me the hibbie jibbies with just the stuff he’s made out of…..it doesn’t matter how many time I watch the movie…..I will never EVER get over his reveal of being made out of bugs….he’s LITERALLY just a sack of bugs….it’s sooo gross, I have to look away every time that part comes up, it’s just NO….no, please no! I think the best part about this movie is that it’s pretty much all Claymation based, it took them 3 years I believe to create this movie, because they had to get everything exactly the way they wanted! The amount of time and effort and the creative way they chose to make this movie, is incredible!!

I give very big props to those artists that work with Clay and turn it into something so unique, let alone decide they want to make a whole movie or show with it! I know animation and video games take so much time, but people who put so much heart into stop motion and having to do so many takes with it just to turn it into something that we’re able to watch, like the Nightmare Before Christmas…..that’s a lot of work! They’re not just doing one thing, they have to make sure the clay doesn’t fall apart and that it doesn’t dry too much either when doing specific scenes, that’s like a whole new experience that they’re giving us…now I’m not saying that we don’t get cool experiences with regular animations or anything, animation is also something that gives us something different to experience, but I just find it fascinating how people who work with Clay do things like this!

I would have thought this movie to be just drawn and animated, but no it’s made with Clay this entire movie, how awesome is that!? I mean I also feel they combined animation with it of course, but still, it’s amazing!! I mean that takes a lot of time and creativity to do something so out of this world that you probably wouldn’t even believe it! Back to the movie though, Nightmare Before Christmas, great movie, it’s got some nice songs…it’s sweet at times, Sally and Jack are great, the other characters too, but yeah….it’s just super creepy, will I watch it though!? Of course I enjoy that movie!

Happy Spooky Season!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Up Next: Animal Crossing New Horizons Direct Thoughts

Good Morning and Happy Saturday! We have arrived to the weekend finally, I don’t know about you guys, but it felt like the week was both long and short, not sure if that makes sense, but it’s just been a week lets just say! I hope that you’re all doing okay though and that regardless to how long and short this week felt to me, I hope it was at least good for you guys!

One good thing to happen during this week though was a very special and unexpected moment which happened within the Animal Crossing Direct yesterday on the 15th of October…..if you’re not familiar or maybe you’re not into video games or just Animal Crossing you might be new to this information or you might have already heard a bit about it, but still aren’t interested which is completely alright! For those who have heard the news and are a fan of the game in someway or form, then you are quite aware of all the goodness and beautiful things that will soon be arriving to us next month!

To explain it would be hard to do, at least here anyway, I have thoughts and feelings to it all, but I need to gather them properly to be able to give them all out in the best way, although when it comes to Animal Crossing, my favorite video game series it’s hard for me to keep calm, because I just love it so much! You can’t even see me right now as I’m just sitting here writing all of this out for you guys, but if you did….you would see me still trying to process everything from yesterday’s Direct, but like I said it would be too much to explain here so, plus I haven’t even jotted everything down that will be coming soon in the game, plus other things that I happened to miss from the Direct, which was quite a handful to be fair, I’m still learning things from it lol!

So what’s going to happen!? This post is just to say what’s to come for the next post that I’ll be sharing, I used to write these kind of post before, but I haven’t done one in quite a while so I thought I’d write one today! I’ll be recording an episode upon this topic on my podcast sometime next week, I’m thinking of recording it Wednesday! There’s some other stuff that I want to talk about for Monday, plus I’ve been doing a lot of these video game announcement thoughts episode so I thought I’d switch it up and give it a bit of a break at least until Wednesday and then I’ll find something else to talk about for Friday and maybe Saturday!

I mean we are still in the spooky month and I’ve been meaning to talk about some movies and add some music topics in there to go with the Halloween season so I want to at least finish this month with those things, I’ve been switching things around lately especially during this week so I would like to get some balance in there with recording and posting on here, so keep a look out for my Animal Crossing Direct episode where I talk about everything I felt and what I’m most looking forward to with this upcoming update we’re getting because man did they give us a lot of thing in yesterday’s direct…I’m super excited for this…it should be good so stay tune!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Let’s Talk: The Phantom Of The Opera

Good Morning Everyone! I hope you’re all okay, I’ve been up for about an hour now, it’s about to be 8:30am, by the time I finish this post it might be a bit past that time, who knows…..anyway I don’t know how many of you are familiar with the movie/musical Phantom Of The Opera, yes I know there’s a Broadway show to it as well, but I have only ever known and watched the movie so the Broadway show won’t be mentioned much here!

If some of you know of this musical then you’ll know what I’m talking, if not that’s okay, but if you would like me to explain a bit, well then I’ll do my best…..Phantom of The Opera originally it’s based off a Broadway play, but it later turned into a movie/musical…..it’s quite an interesting one and I don’t know how well I’ll be able to describe it, but to put it into short words, You have this girl whose name is Christine who is obsessed with this voice I guess, I’m not going to lie to you I never quite understood the concept of this play turned musical movie, I just always liked watching the movie and hearing the songs I’d always watch it with my brother on occasions, we’d love watching it when we were younger!

We don’t watch it much these days, but I’d still consider it a favorite if not that, It was always a movie that I enjoyed watching….but anyway, back to the explanation of this movie…..Yeah so Christine, she’s obsessed with this Phantom guy, but mainly because of his voice and the Phantom guy is obsessed with Christine who is engaged to another man…..that’s pretty much the round up of the movie, I mean there’s more to it of course, but it’s the only way I can explain it really!

Now onto why I want to talk about the Phantom Of The Opera, so as we all know we are in the Spookiest of months right now, everyone’s favorite season except for mine Halloween, unless we’re talking about the Halloween event in my favorite game Animal Crossing then…..well I got mixed feelings on that one, but we’re not here to talk about Animal Crossing, not yet anyway, soon though!

We’re slowly, but surely nearing the Halloween event and I know most people are probably looking forward to getting all dressed up and going out to get candy and what not, I’m not really sure how most people will celebrate it this year, however they choose, I just hope everyone enjoys themselves and most importantly that they stay safe! I’m getting off track here aren’t I!? Right….caring on, reason to why I want to talk about this beautiful movie musical…..

We are at the peak of Halloween, it’s closely around the corner and so for this month, I’ve been slightly challenging myself to have a theme so I can write more and record more! Out of all the months that I get most inspiration, October has literally screamed at me and so I thought this could work, let’s see if we can make things interesting! I’ve been sharing recently anything that gives me Halloween vibes, it doesn’t have to be exactly Halloween, it just has to feel like it and Phantom Of The Opera gives me HUGE “yeah this can go well with the Halloween season”

I recently found out that it actually released during the Halloween season at least the novel did…..it fact it just had an anniversary this past Saturday the 9th of October, true facts! 35 years that we were given this gift and you want to know what else I learned!? Apparently it’s meant to be a Graphic Horror…..how did I not know that!? I’m not sure, but let’s just say I knew that from the beginning to save time…..35 years is a long time I mean it’s older than the Nightmare Before Christmas and that movie just turned 28 TODAY!! like right now today…..can you believe that!?

I like how meant to be focused on Phantom Of The Opera, but I keep mentioning other things…..sorry about that I just can’t help, but mention these things! Really I just wanted to talk about the soundtrack of this movie, it literally screams Halloween…..anytime I just hear the Phantom Of The Opera theme song, I always would say to myself how you could add that to a playlist with other similar songs that just give you that spooky sound or just reminds you of the season of Halloween! It’s a such a good soundtrack though Phantom Of The Opera, also the two leads to that movie did fantastic together, both have amazing voices and I kind just want to watch the movie now at this point, I’ll try and watch it soon!

If you ever listen to the Phantom Of The Opera soundtrack then you’ll also feel the familiarity that it brings to this season! There’s a lot of songs that will sound like they were made around the month of October just because they give you those horror type of sounds to them, but also it could just be that they fit well and probably should’ve been made during the month of October, but I guess that’s why playlists were invented so you add things to them that remind you of a certain holiday event, that bring back certain memories or just because you need a bunch of songs to help pick you during the day!

Regardless Phantom Of The Opera is quite the musical/movie and recently just found out about Novel and I can’t believe it’s 35 years old, like it’s still young, but goodness 35 years!? That’s mind blowing right there, by the way I have never read the novel if it weren’t obvious, I didn’t even know there was a novel for it, I always thought it was a musical play only turned movie, but then again most of these musical plays come from books sooo I don’t know why I’m so surprised….Happy 35th Anniversary POTO!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

The Last Challenger Approaches, Completing A Life Long Journey of an Era (Super Smash Bros Ultimate)

Happy Friday Everybody!! We’ve come to the end of the week and beginning of the weekend, who else has let out a breath of relief I know I have, I don’t know about you guys, but it seems like this month is going by both slow, yet also pretty quick….is that weird to say!? I mean we’re still in the beginning process of the month, however we are heading towards the middle of the month as well, we’re literally half way there practically lol!

This week has been…..something, now when I say that it just means you can’t quite put your finger on whatever it is your saying something to, there is that specific thing to it if that makes sense!? Overall it has been quite the week hasn’t it! I’m not going to lie I’ve been feeling a bit nervous this week, I don’t know if it’s because I know I’ll be getting my second vaccine Sunday or because of other things, probably a mixture of it all if I’m being honest, but as Isabelle would say in New Horizons “Give yourself a pat on the back you made it to the end of the week” something like that anyway!

Speaking of games, let’s talk a bit on what you’re probably here for shall we!? First up I just want to say that I already recorded my thoughts on these topics, I’m just adding anything that I managed to miss or just recently found out about so that’s what this post is…..so anything I said within my podcast episode I won’t be saying too much on here, I’ve scheduled the episode to be up a bit later today so once it’s officially up that is when I’ll share it!

Real quick I actually had something else in mind that I wanted to record for you guys, but Anchor is being a bit, troublesome today well my microphone is anyway, although it let me record this episode early this morning that I was actually going to share tomorrow and what I was going to record today was supposed to be up for today instead, but I guess this episode wanted to be up on a Friday instead of Saturday so change of plans…..the episode was going to be music based, I was going to challenge myself to speak about an artist that I listen to often, but is a bit out of comfort to share my thoughts on, but I shall leave it for another day and hopefully by then I’ll get to share this amazing artist with you guys!

Back to video games…..we all know by now I presume that Sora from Kingdom Hearts will be joining the Smash Ultimate roster and how excited everyone is about that really big news, we also know that he was the last challenger to be added to the game which means no more other challengers to unexpectedly show up and join the fight, it’s a bit bittersweet that we’ve come to the end of finishing up Smash, but we all knew that at some point it was going to happen!

Now I just recently found out that Sakurai the director of Super Smash will be taking a break now that the last character has been revealed within the game, I did a little research and I knew Super Smash Bros Ultimate came out a few years ago, but I just didn’t realize how long it actually has been…..2018 is when this game released and it took 3 years…..3 YEARS……to complete Super Smash Ultimate’s roster!! If that’s not both insane and mind blowing I don’t know what is!?

Sakurai has been at this game for so many years not including Ultimate, we’ve had so many Super Smash games come into our lives and to see the transformation of it to what it was and what it is now…..you wouldn’t even believe it, so YES Sakurai definitely deserves a long rested break, I mean he’s work tirelessly without much of a break just to finish this game! Now I understand everyone getting emotional and feeling the way they feel, because it’s been a very long journey in the Super Smash franchise and so it’s an important event in the Nintendo world….

So I shall say a bit of what I said in the episode, but a bit better….Thank you Sakurai for everything that you have given us with this game, thank you for putting your heart into something and sharing it with everyone, I hope that you have the most deserved break and whenever you decide you want to return I just hope that you feel the most refreshed that you’ve felt in a while and if this Smash game is to be the last again thank you for giving us something to be able to enjoy for generations and generations, I don’t know what you are thinking about for your next journey, but whatever it is, I hope that it brings you much joy and happiness, but for now just take care of yourself, see you when you return!

Update:

My latest podcast episode is now up is you want to check it out, take care and have a good weekend!

P.S.

In case this is appearing as Episode 42 instead of Episode 43, I don’t know what’s happening, when I shared it earlier it said Episode 43…..hopefully it updates itself and changes back to the original episode I posted….I’m going to give it a day and wait to share both this post and podcast episode on my Twitter, until this glitch clears out! Here’s the link to the actual episode if you guys want to check it out: Let’s Talk: The Final Ultimate Character Joining The Roster & The Upcoming Animal Crossing Direct Ep. 43

Let’s Talk: Monsters Inc and Monsters University

With the Halloween season spicing up everyone’s life right now, literally I mean have seen all the Pumpkin spice things that everyone is going crazy for…..I don’t really understand why everyone likes Pumpkin spiced food and drinks, I mean I do love me some Pumpkin donuts from Dunkin’ don’t get me wrong, but aren’t we going a little bit too far with it!?

I understand the Pumpkin candles, those always smell lovely, so those are okay, everything else that’s Pumpkin inspired though…..that’s different….but we’re not hear to talk about Pumpkins…..not yet anyway, that will be coming up soon! Today I thought we’d talk about everybody’s favorite and most adorable Disney movie at least to me it’s got adorable things in it…..in this post we are discussing both Monsters Inc and Monsters University combined!

Why exactly!? Well because without Monsters University we would never know how Sully and Mike Wazowski got into the Scare business and without Monsters Inc we wouldn’t know who Boo was…..those are the two main important things about both these movies…alright alright, I’ll give them both more credit then that…..we all know how great Monsters Inc is, it was the first to release between the two and it’s still being played every Halloween as well as during most days really if you can’t bother to wait for the Spooky season, although a lot of movies are like that if you really think about it….

Monsters Inc is just one of those movies that are just fun to watch, like when you see that it’s on and you’re able to watch it….7/10 you’d be the first to switch over to it, now I didn’t say 9/10 because I feel like it’s easy to pass by, I mean there have been times where I’ve seen it on a tv guide and just not gone to watch it, but I think it’s okay to say that seeing Monsters Inc even if you do skip it and choose to watch something else, you do stop and acknowledge it before you start watching that show or movie that leaves you wanting to make snacks for or just to enjoy!

Now as for Monsters University…..I’m not sure how many people would skip it or would switch to it right away, now that’s not me saying that it’s a bad movie, cause it’s not, Monsters University has it’s own charm to it, it’s not exactly a Monsters Inc 2, which I think a lot of people we’re upset about at first, I feel like a lot of people were really wanting a second Monsters Inc movie, but we’re a little disappointed when we were given Monsters University instead…..but I think people have gotten over that already!

Like I was saying though, it’s not Monsters University does have it’s own charm to it and it was nice to see what Sully and Mike Wazowski were like during their younger heading into adulthood years, it’s not what we were expecting, but it was pretty good, at least I thought so…..it was cool seeing the two best friends and some of their school friends from Monsters University visit the company that they would later be apart of in the Monsters Inc movie, like what I great way to foreshadow a classic movie that already exist!

Just in case that sounded like sarcasm, just know that it’s not I was just expressing in a very weird way that I like that they referenced Monsters Inc in Monsters University, yeah I probably didn’t need to explain that, but I felt it feeling like I was saying that sarcastically so I wanted to clarify it for myself and in case people read it and wonder if I was using sarcasm or really felt it like that…..moving on…..both Monsters Inc and Monsters University are great movies, they both are similar, but are also very different from each other, they’ve got their own thing going for them, which I like!

I love how you’re able to see Monsters Inc being told in many different ways as you’re getting to see both stories unfold and transition to being what they both are now, with Monsters University being the starting point of the journey even though it was released later and Monsters Inc being the butterfly that emerges out of it’s cocoon, it’s a weird and backwards way of telling a story, but I guess it worked out for the best, regardless I think both movies should be given better credit and more love if they haven’t been getting much of it these days!

P.S.

I might just record an episode talking a bit more about Monsters Inc and Monsters Uni sometime soon, I feel I have a bit more I want to get out, but writing it all here would be a very long read it’s pretty much be the same thing to this post, but with some added thoughts that I hoping I haven’t expressed yet so keep your eyes peeled for that….

Up Next: The Reveal Of The Final Smash Character….Thoughts and Reaction

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday! Hope you’re all doing alright and although late, I hope you had a good weekend as well! Now before you think I’m about to tell you who on earth the final Super Smash character added to Ultimate is…..I just want to it to be clear that I still have to learn who it is! I’m just writing out my final thoughts before it is announced who is shall be!

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m quite excited to see who Nintendo has decided will be the final character to be approaching and added to the Super Smash Ultimate roster…..update: I hadn’t yet finished this post before I saw the reveal, I started writing this early morning, but didn’t get to quite finish! I recently just learned who the last final smash character is, now in case some of you have yet to see it….I won’t go spoiling it here, although I ended up getting spoiled on the new added character myself I’m not going to do that to anyone else…..note to self, don’t go on Twitter the day of special announcements that you’re looking forward too…..always a big mistake!

Now even though I will keep away with the spoilers here, I will reveal who it was and give my honest thoughts and reaction to what I felt when I finally saw the trailer earlier tomorrow on my podcast so if you would like to check that out, just stay tune to my thoughts on that! I know I could just tell you who it was, but before I do that, I want to make sure that I give my best thoughts to the reveal, plus I kind of already decided to have my reaction as a podcast episode anyway, hence why I’m not saying everything here!

Sorry if this is a short post, originally this was supposed to be my before thoughts to who the character was going to be before the actual reveal happened….buuut seeing that I went onto twitter forgetting that we were getting this announcement earlier today….my fun guesses are now invalid sooo this is now an update post, well slight update anyway! I’ll write another post tomorrow after I’ve recorded the episode talking about Super Smash with any other thoughts that I might’ve not said in the episode already! You guys have a good night!

All The Love ❤ ❤

1st Of October…..Happy Weekend Everyone!!

It took me a minute to try and come up with a title…..Happy October 1st, we’ve arrived to another weekend, who else is happy!? I hope that you all had a nice week and that September left you feeling pretty okay at the end….I don’t know about anyone else, but I felt like the last day of September went on a bit long, but then again it was the last day so I guess it wanted to stay for as long as it could which is why it felt a little dragging!

That was yesterday, we’re now in a whole new month and it’s Friday can’t get any better than that am I right!? I’m feeling a little excited today I don’t particularly know why….but I’ve been trying not to question it, I’m just embracing it as it comes all while trying not to let it all out at once…..I have to keep it balanced don’t want to waste all that energy in one take! I’m not really sure what most people are hoping for out of this month, I feel like it unfold in many different ways….for me I just want to continue having inspiration and creativity flowing towards me as well as just hoping for this month to be a good one

We’ve crossed the spooky parts of town in what is October, spooky equals Halloween and Halloween equals: Candy, Costumes, Halloween movies and the things that people look forward to when October arrives! We’re also getting more colder weather, seriously…..I know in the beginning of September it felt like Summer hadn’t gone anywhere, but once we were at the last days of September…..the air changed so quick!! I went outside yesterday a few times and during the late evening I wanted to see what it was like and ooof, was it chilly out and I was only there for a split second so you know that fall has definitely arrived! After all that heat we were getting, Autumn finally showed up and let us know she was around!

So with that information, just make sure you’re grabbing your coats, sweaters, cardigan, gloves and maybe a scarf, but only if you need it of course, just make sure that you’re staying warm because that’s important coming from someone that gets cold very easily, it’s very important! All that aside, I’m excited to see what this month has in store…..I do have some ideas on what I would like to bring and share with you guys….mainly for my podcast…..in terms of this blog…..I’m hoping to get inspiration and bring some nice and hopefully interesting ideas that will be enjoyed, I’m going to try anywhere!

If I’m being honest, I’ve not really been in the zone with writing, I’ve been trying to get some posts out, but I also have been struggling to come up with ideas for this blog, so if you see I’m not writing as much just know I’ll get there eventually, I’m just trying to get inspired! I’ve been wanting to be more creative with this blog, but I’m also not sure how to do it just yet…..

Plus I’ve found that in the month of September, I was becoming a little busy, nothing too dramatic….I’ve just been preparing for a trip that I’ll be going on soon, but that’s not until the month of November, which I am super excited for by the way, I can’t wait for November to arrive…..but more on that later when we get closer to it of course!

I’m looking forward to seeing what October has coming, I hope you guys are too!

Update:

Here’s my latest podcast episode that I recorded earlier today, it’s all about the month of October similar thoughts to this post, but also a bit different, check it out!

Wake Me Up When Sept….Oh We’re Here!?

Good Morning Everybody! Hope that you all are having a good Thursday so far!? It seems we’ve arrived toward the end of September and yes I checked there is no September 31st…..it always leaves my mind that not every month as a 31st to it…..except for February, I know that month has no 30th, 31st, it barely even has a 29th unless it’s a leap year, still I do forget that not every month (not including February) just doesn’t have a 31st, anyway moving on…..

I’m a little surprised that we’re already finish with this month and that October has very much arrived, we’re did September go!? I don’t know, but hey we knew it wouldn’t be long until it headed off from it’s time being here! If you or I were to ask….how do you think September went!? It’s a bit of a hard call to say exactly, September had a lot of interesting moments to it, as for the other parts of September…..I honestly wouldn’t be able to tell you, the only thing I’d be able to say is I know that there were a lot of special and important events within this month, but September pretty much flew by!

I wouldn’t say that September was a bad month, because it wasn’t…..just like with each month it’s had it’s moments, but it was okay, it wasn’t too bad of a month, at least I don’t think it was, I’m sure it’s probably different for a lot of you, maybe it was a great month for you or maybe September wasn’t your favorite month to explore, I understand that it’s different for everyone and that’s okay! I just hope that however this month went for everyone that you got something good out of it as well, even if it was the best month or not so great! I hope that you discovered something new and exciting, hopefully you learned something interesting that you may not have known before…..I just hope that you did okay!

One thing I will say with the start of the month is how hot it was getting into September, I would always question if it were still Summer and why were even in September, you would’ve thought the moment it got to September 1st that it was going to feel like the month we were in…..not at all….it took for us to get to the middle and end of the month for it to start getting very chilly, you know how it should’ve went, but hey at least you feel it now so that’s good, it’s not as hot as before and now we can really start getting out our sweaters, cardigans, boots all the good fall attire we own!

Any reflections with September I have, I might just do a podcast episode on, but it’s probably going to be a short one, overall September leaves me wondering just how this month went and it’s the only month so far that has me feeling like I need to think on it for a second or more than a second, but I’m going to try my hand at reflecting with it! Get ready everyone as we get into a whole new month that is October, it’s the month that everyone likes to call the Spooky month as they’re bring out all their Halloween decorations and just enjoying themselves and if there’s some that don’t like to decorate for October, they’re still enjoying the Spoopy holiday, by watching 31 Nights Of Halloween on Freeform!

(F.K.A. The ABC Family Network, yes that’s what Freeform was called before, I haven’t forgotten those days)

One last thing I want to say with September…..Thank you, for all that you have brought with you and shared, thank you for the bad moments and good moments, I hope that you have a nice safe journey wherever you are headed, see you next year September…..as for October, we’ll see you tomorrow!

Update:

I was going to try and see if I could write another post before we officially get into October, but nothing is coming to mind sooo I shall add this now…..here’s my latest podcast episode if you would like to check it out!

Bonding & Just Being Together….

You know what I love!? The show that is The Masked Singer, now before I continue, I just want to say that this post was going to be all about The Masked Singer and how great it is in my words, but then I started writing and I felt it change into a different topic as I continued soo it’s not just going to be about the Masked Singer…..it might end up being a little deeper than that….maybe, we’ll see where it goes…..back to part of the Masked Singer, like I said I love that show, I can’t even tell you how much I love it!

It’s such a cool and interesting concept to sometimes wrap your head around, but you love anyway! It’s obviously a singing show, but with a more unexpected twist to it and it’s just beautiful!! I always watch the show with my mom, we both enjoy it and I won’t watch it without her! I do that with everyone though, if I start a show with someone or I know there’s a specific movie that I like, but is also a favorite to someone close to me, it’s not just a regular movie or show anymore, it turns into a tradition shared with someone you love and means a lot to you!

For example featuring a confession time:

I won’t watch the movie Grease or watch the show Jane The Virgin without my guy/partner I can’t do it! Especially Grease like even clips of Grease moments or hearing some of the songs is a no go, well I can hear the songs now a bit…..I have two of them on both my Spotify and regular phone music, but when I’m missing him loads…..it’s really hard to hear them! I have the movie and I love the movie, it’s one of my favorites…..but I won’t watch it without him at all, because it’s our movie so yeah lol!

Anytime I think of watching something that was shared with somebody, I won’t watch it and the same goes with specific songs too…..if a song reminds me of someone, it can be hard to listen to at times, not always, but there are moments that I’ve had where a song that I love or enjoy has played and I quickly change it because it reminded me of someone! There are songs that I do let play even if it reminds me of a specific person, it really depends though on the song and what memory comes with it!

It might be a weird thing to not want to watch or listen to something because someone specific isn’t around to watch it with you or because you get a moment in time that plays out when hearing a specific song that has you thinking of that person, but I don’t see it like that! The way I see it, if you are watching something with someone else, listening to a song that gives you those fond memories or just doing something in general with that person…..you are sharing something and being open and inviting to want to have that experience with just that person and no one else…..it’s a bonding experience as well as being/spending together and enjoying this special thing at the same time!

We can enjoy these things by ourselves of course, but there’s just something about having that special bond with someone and both of you just happy to share those moments together! That’s a different experience, different feeling in itself and again it may be weird to some people and it might get seen as corny, don’t ask me why I chose to say that word, it was the first one that came to mind…but I don’t care because I love those moments where it’s shared with someone close to you and you see the other person enjoying it the same way you are!

My favorite is when you’re showing someone something they haven’t watched/listened to or maybe haven’t experienced yet and as they are learning about it for the first time, you’re there looking for their reaction to see if they’re liking it or not (hopefully I used all that correct) I don’t know how to explain it, but those first time moments are one of the best, because you’re getting the most honest reactions that you’re only going to see once! 9/10 most of the things that you like, isn’t always going to be something someone else likes…..

When that happens you have to learn to accept people not having the same interest as you, cause in reality it’s going to happen…..however there will be times where you both are showing interests into something and you find out that you both either really like it or you hate it! One of you may even enjoy it more while the other isn’t for it as much!

It’s the process of the thing, trial and error, but at the same time you learn something new with it and you grow to know someone as well with what they like and don’t like! It’s nothing personal if someone doesn’t enjoy the same things you do same goes vice versa, at the end of the day, it’s all about being together and being open to giving these moments a try even if it’s not your best cup of joe or tea! What’s important is the experience as well as bonding and enjoying each other’s company!

Animal Crossing Update: The Bird Is Word

I’m going to try not to have that song in my head…..but I was trying to say what’s to come without spoiling anything in case some people haven’t gotten the chance to watch the direct yesterday that Nintendo showcased, although I’m sure most already know what bird I’m on about here! Just in case though I’ll do my best to not spoil the news, but what I will say is that I’m very excited, I’m so looking forward to getting this new update!

It’s been a whole year since we were given Animal Crossing New Horizons and although it too as long as it did, for us to get this update, I’m happy nonetheless, because we did eventually get what we have been wanting and I feel it’s just going to be good from here going forward with Nintendo, even if sometimes it may take a little longer I will forever love Nintendo for surprising us yesterday with the announcement that was made!

October is going to be a good month in the Animal Crossing community, now I will probably do a podcast episode about this as well, sharing my reaction to the news when I saw it and how I felt when I saw it, even though I chose not spoil anything on here, there will be spoilers in that episode regarding the upcoming update and what to expect from what I know of course!

I will also be giving my thoughts to what I feel they’ll have going with this new upcoming update that we will be getting in November from the announcement that we will be getting next month, so it’ll be a bit of predicting that I will share in the episode! I don’t know if I’ll do it today, as I already have an episode scheduled, it’s actually up now if you would like to have a listen, I’ll share it in just a moment!

Stay tune for the next episode talking about my thoughts on the Nintendo direct as well as what will be arriving in the next Animal Crossing update (That will be the main focus of the episode) I’m sooo excited and I can’t wait to share it with you guys! For the time being you can check out my newest podcast episode here:

Let's Talk: Life Control, Care Packages & The Start Of Fall Ep. 40 (Re-Upload from Sept 24th) Daydreamer's Podcast

Happy Thursday (Friday) and Day 2 of Fall!! In today's episode I thought we'd just let whatever we felt come out, there's a lot of different topics talked about in today's episode! I felt like I had some things that I wanted to share that was on my mind, plus I just wanted to have a bit of a chatting session, September is turning into a slightly crazy month and we're getting closer to the month of October…..

P.S.

I might have accidently deleted this episode….so that’s why it’s now considered a reupload, I was working on the app from my phone and who knew that by hitting undo that it would delete a whole episode…..at least I know now! Anyway now this episode is a 27th upload instead of a 24th of Sept one!!

All The Love ❤ ❤
