Dear Little Me…..(Updated)

It’s been a while hasn’t it, if only you knew all things we have been through…..I mean seeing that you are apart of me, you probably already know huh!? I’ll be honest I wasn’t really expecting to write to you, it was only after that I read a bit of the first I guess you can call letter post that I wrote to you back in 2018 that I felt like I wanted to update you on a few things that we’ve managed to do…..I’m writing this a bit on the late side on the 15th of September nearly midnight, but not necessarily midnight it’s still around 11:30pm as I’m writing this now, I might just continue this post in the morning so I could really tell you everything that I want you to know….I’ll catch you up on what those things are soon, a part of me might keep the rest as a surprised though, see you in a couple of hours!

Good Morning me, well younger me…..it’s a little early, around 8:40am almost 9am, I don’t know if you remember us always getting up earlier than we needed to back then, there were moments when we got up a bit late as well! Sometimes we’d get up at almost 10am and if we got up at 11am we were upset the whole day…..I’m glad that I changed our sleep schedule all those times ago ha! I don’t know where to start with what’s been going on….We’ve been on quite the journey you and I, a lot of stresses, emotions both good and bad, we had some loses in our lives as well, that meant a lot to us….but on a good note, we did find someone that loves us for our weirdness as well as everything else believe it our not lol…..there’s a lot of things that’s happened since the last time I spoke to you!

We’ve been through some storms, but the one thing though that I feel you’ll really like is that…..we got through them and most of them we’re really hard, because they pushed us to really grow ourselves more and change as well, in the last letter I wrote you…..I felt like I was not doing you proud, that I had failed you as an older version of me and I never knew how to really express that in the best of ways, I only knew how to say sorry and feel bad about everything we were going through at the time…..I wanted you to be happy and I didn’t really give you that chance to be happy then….it took a long while, but I just want you to know that we’re doing good now, where we were then, we aren’t there anymore!

We managed to find our voice, now I won’t say we found it fully fully, there’s still some things that we both are still working out and trying to understand better, which is normal, because not everyone has figured everything out yet, but we have learned a lot and I can honestly say that we are becoming better versions of ourselves more and more each day! Don’t get me wrong we still have our moments where we aren’t always happy and feeling our best, but to how we used to handle those days to how we handle them now…..we’re doing pretty alright for ourselves, our emotions don’t constantly get at us the way they used to, we’ve learned to control them a lot better and not be so hard on ourselves….I mean we’re still hard on ourselves at times, but I think that’s never going to go away really, but that’s okay because it helps us to want to be better!

We’ve grown on a personal level, we’re still the same, but there our some new differences within ourselves that we’ve gained with our personality, for example….we’ve gotten a bit more sarcastic lately, we say what’s on our mind a lot more these days, a bit quickly too, might I add and we’ve gotten better at not taking up things that we know we don’t need in a negative sense….I guess you can say we’ve gotten a bit tougher and stronger since the last time, but I think part of those part of me comes from you if that makes sense, especially all the sassy parts that I wouldn’t have ever thought to come out!! All our fears that we used to worry ourselves about, we have moments where they pop up, but you’ll be happy to know that instead of always wanting to avoid them and run away, we try and face them the best we can…..we come way out of our comfort zone, well we’re nearing the surface at least, we don’t swim the best, but we do our best to get to where we want to be!

Like I said we’re still learning as we go along, but that’s only part of the journey we’re on…..it’s just the beginning and we’re just getting started, but we’re flying little me, just like you always wanted and I promise that I’m going to keep doing my best to make you proud to be me older, because I just want you to be happy and I want you to know that the adventures you go, as new and hard as they may be at times and you may feel like you’re not getting where you need to, but know that you’re always going to get where you need even when you get lost a bit, sometime you have to get a little lost before you’re found! We’re always going to be okay, I know that because I got you and I know that when I’m lost, you’ll found a way to point me to where you feel it’s best to go so I know to keep going, because together is where the magic starts to happen!

All the feelings of being scared, but wanting to still give it a shot anyway, taking those risks, I never thought we’d get to that point, but I got to say that, doing those things, makes me happy, I still get nervous and scared, but I hope that you feel happy that we’re finally doing them…..there’s still some stuff that I know I want to tell you, but I know know how to express them properly just yet, so I will leave them for another time, the moment I find those words and I’m able to piece them all together you’ll know…..I just wanted to tell you that we’re okay and that we’re a little bit more happier than we were before…..I’ll see you soon!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Now Playing The Bones By Maren Morris Ft Hozier

Good Afternoon, hope everyone is having a nice Friday, we’ve come to the end of the week and start of another weekend, this week has been zooming by a bit! You can probably guess form the title what we’re going to be discussing, seeing that it’s the end of the week, I thought we’d just talk about music, now before we talk a little about today’s song, I just want to give you all a bit of an update to what I’ve been doing, so I actually recorded this as an episode yesterday for my podcast, normally I like to record on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, but I ended up changing it up this week and have been recording Tuesday and Thursday so far,

I just wanted to see if I liked it for this week….it’s been okay, I don’t know if I’d say I like recording during these days, there have been times where, my days felt weird, I got so used to recording during the beginning, middle and end of the week that it threw me off, so we’ll be going back to the original schedule of my podcast episodes, I wasn’t going to keep it this way anyway, I just wanted to test it out and now that I have, I can say, I prefer Monday, Wednesday and Friday days!

On to the rest of the post, even though I did an episode about this song, I also wanted to write about for the simple reason of I forgot to mention a few things within that episode and I messed up on certain parts to what I was talking about so pretty much this post will be of what I want to add and fix, without giving too much of the episode away! First up, I talked about how Demi Lovato covered one of Hozier’s song Take Me To Church on BBC One Radio (BBC Radio One!?) but I completely forgot that he had covered her song which was I believe Sorry Not Sorry on there as well, it came to me when I was uploading the episode and so I wanted to add that! I also messed up on the song title to what I had said The Bones by Maren Morris ft Hozier was similar to,

I said the song was named Let It Be, but it ‘s actually called Let It Go (like the frozen song) and I finally got the name of the artist that I was trying to remember that sang the song when I was talking about it, I knew that was going to happened cause it always happens, right when you stop recording you remember or you find it! I actually just searched it up on my Spotify last night, the artist is named James Bay and the song is Let It Go! I think it’s the way both songs start, to why they sound very similar to me, but just because they sound similar doesn’t mean they are, they’re both two completely different songs, they just share a same sound vibe is all…..well The Bones sounds similar to Let It Go is what I mean, I mixed some lyrics up there, Let It Be is one of the lyrics in the song, but it’s not the name of the song! I guess I was thinking about The Beatles song when I said that in my episode, sorry about that!

Another thing I’ll give you a heads up on about the episode is that I sing…..don’t mind me, whenever I’m talking about a specific song, I tend to sing some of the lyrics, it’s what I do so hopefully you don’t mind, but yeah that’s pretty much it, if you would like to check out both Demi and Hozier’s version of each others song, I will leave it for you, both are good, I watched it before so I think you’ll enjoy them as well, I’ll also leave you all the other songs and that if you want to check them out, that’s is everything that I wanted to add as extras, the rest of what I gave my thoughts to is in the episode so if you would like to check it out, here you go:

The Journey Of Learning & Growing….

One of the best things to witness is watching someone grow and evolve, be it a child, someone that you saw go through a very tough point in their life or even just you yourself, there’s no age limit when it comes to learning and growing…..you could be in your 50s and you may already know a whole lot, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still learn something new let alone won’t learn something new, there’s so much to life that will always leave us surprised even when you think you’ve seen it all already!

I’ve witness a few transformations, a lot of them may not be fully, but I’ve seen a few and the ones I have seen, still amaze me and sometimes I find myself thinking about those transformations, I’ve watched my boyfriend come out of something that he struggled with for a while, not necessarily in person, but just the aftermath of what happened in his life in that time, it’s how we met, he was just starting to get back to himself again! I’ve seen my nephew who I consider my nephew, I first met him when he was 3, so I’ve only known him for a year now pretty much and I remember how he’d never wanted to listen to anyone, you know usual kid stuff, his favorite word was always NO and you couldn’t tell him anything, without him crying and throwing tantrums and wanting everything to be his way

and then you have his mom who worked all the time and when it came to trying to stop him from having those tantrums it was hard for her to put her foot down with him, obviously no parent wants to yell at their child, any good parent anyway, it’s hard because you try to be a parent, but you also don’t want to be a parent in a sense of when your child starts throwing those tantrums and they aren’t listening to you, you don’t want to have to punish them for it, because all you want is for them to see you in the best light possible and when you come to those moments to where you know there needs to be rules……it can be hard, but sometimes you know you have to do it!

But back to what I was talking about…..all three people here have gone through big transformations and you wouldn’t believe it if I told you, my boyfriend one of the biggest transformation I’ve ever seen and also haven’t seen, but if you knew him when I met him and you were to see and learn about everything he endured, you’d be extremely surprised, it still surprises me when I think about it sometimes, just to see and learn the difference in the person that he once was to who he is now, like I wouldn’t know where to begin on that story, hopefully I’ll be able to really tell it or have him tell it one day, I mean it is story about his journey anyway and it really is a beautiful and life changing one at that! I’m very proud of how far he’s gotten, I love you Jord, forever and always!

As for my Nephew…..he’s 4 now, but will be turning 5 in November and let me tell you something, he is one hell of a smart kid, seriously and he’s gotten a lot better at really trying to understand everything, he doesn’t give you too much of a issue now when you are telling him not to do something or you’re trying to help him learn certain things, he actually listens expressing something to him which I’m glad to see, it was a mission and a half when I first met him, he talks a whole lot more now, like a lot, he wouldn’t really say much before, he was just always shy and wouldn’t come up to you, he’d just be in his own little world, now forget about it!! He will talk to you for hours if he really wanted to, he’s quite the character, very silly, but he’s the sweetest boy every, he’s very kind, he likes making people laugh and just showing you things all the time, buut don’t let his adorableness fool, he knows what he’s doing!

He’s a little demon and I say it all the time to him, which he knows too because he always laughs about it! He knows how to get what he wants, however he knows who to go for when he wants something, spoiler it’s not me, he knows better than to pull anything with me, like I said he’s a smart one, I wouldn’t be surprised if he turned out to be an evil genius, I’m joking, he’s a good kid when he wants to be, but he’s also grown to know better and I just hope that continues the older he gets!

Lastly, we come to my Nephew’s mom who has also transformed a lot from when I met her, she’s kind of hard to explain with her transformation though, but I’ll do my best, when I first started coming around and hanging out with her, she was always working, but she worked from home, so she always tried her best to balance out work and her son and when I was hanging out with her as she was working, I would notice a lot that she was having to do, when it came to her son like I said earlier it was hard for her to put her foot down with him at first, because she didn’t like having to be that….not strict parent, cause she’s really not that strict, but he’d would get babied a lot before, he still does, but it’s not so much from his mom these days, but the grandparents…..you know how that goes!

It was hard for her to tell him when he was doing something wrong and when it came to punishment so that he learns that he can’t do certain things, with work she was always stressing, she dealt with a lot….I guess the only way I can say it is her transformation comes from how she’s grown as a parent from when I met her and what I know her to be now as well as how certain parts of her personality has changed and grown, she’d always wanted to please everyone even when she didn’t want to do whatever it was that she didn’t want to do, she’s showing more of her voice with people,

Which is good and she would always feel like nothing was going her way, but now everything is now working for her which is great, in terms of her son, she’s learn to put her foot down with him more and not let him try and control her and what I love about that is, I feel since then, both her and her son have gotten more closer and it’s a beautiful things to see, because you can tell she loves her son and only wants the best for him and that’s how parent should be and he loves her which is also wonderful! I’ve witness what she had to go through before and I’m so proud of her for how far she’s come even if she doesn’t know it, she’s an amazing mom and an amazing person, as well as a really good friend and I’m glad that I got to know her and continue to get to know her, fun fact, we’ve crossed paths before me and her a few time even, but we never actually encountered one another face to face just always by a pass by, it wasn’t until she started dating my brother to where we finally met, I guess you can call it a small word!

The three people I just spoke about all mean something to me and I’m glad to know them and have them apart of my life, I’m glad that I’ve been able to experience the transformations they’ve gone through, they all have taught me a lot of things as well as important lessons and are still teaching me a lot even if they don’t know it necessarily, but I wouldn’t trade them and all that they’ve taught me for the world and if ever down the line our journey’s together were to take different paths or transform in some kind of way to where I still have them in my life, I’m always going to take what they’ve given me and do my best to make sure I never forget it!

F.Y.I. I didn’t expect to write all of this, the way I did, I just felt very strongly to write this for some reason so I did, call it a moment of a thought in time!!

P.S.

By the way, I’ve switched up my podcast episode schedule just for this week, so instead of Monday, Wednesday and Friday, I’m doing Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday (I’m going to try for Saturday anyway) again just for this week, I just felt like switching things up a a bit! You can check out yesterday’s episode here:

Just Another Manic Monday….

Okay so it’s not really a manic Monday, I just wanted to quote The Bangles song, I went to double check to make sure it was The Bangles I was quoting….we’re good, Good Morning by the way! Hope everyone is enjoying their 4 day weekend, I say 4 because everyone knows once Friday hits, it’s automatically considered an extra weekend, I’ll never understand why we only have 2 days during the weekend, like we have a full week to be as productive and busy, if you like busy as you can be and then the only rest time you have is Saturday and Sunday!? No wonder everyone adds Friday to the weekend days!

I remember when I was younger I’d always think “If there was an extra day added to the weekend and we had 8 days of the week instead of 7, what would we name it!?” and I would try and come up with some weird name for it, but it never felt right, although I do like mashing up words together, but it was very hard coming up with a third day to the weekend and trying to figure out a name for it, so I guess making the rule that Friday is both apart of the week and weekend, I’d say that was a good call, we don’t always need more days in the week, 7 is just fine!!

I hope that those celebrating Labor Day are having a nice relaxing day, if you’re out and about running errands or maybe you’re on a nice vacation, I hope you’re enjoying yourself and that it’s not too hectic, I mean we all know how holidays can get right!? If you don’t celebrate Labor day, I just hope everyone is having a good day overall and that it’s going well for you! I got up at my usual time this morning which is around 8am and I sat outside for about an hour, did you know that during the earliest mornings, you’ll find that it’s the most peaceful!? Especially during a holiday, it’s true!

If you ever go outside, be it for a walk, or just to get some fresh air, just take a moment to listen to everything, without saying a word….you’ll be amazed to how nice it sounds! Sometimes we don’t really have a lot of time to enjoy the day because we’re always doing something, always busy, but when we finally do, it’s important that we take advantage and do our best to embrace certain moments, even if it is to just listen to the birds and see them fly by, maybe hear the cicadas sing loud during the fall, even though they’re only supposed to be around for the summer, but hey I guess they stick around for longer after a while…..but however you choose to enjoy the day, don’t forget to just take in a bit of fresh air and have a listen to what’s around you!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Up And Early….With Some Thoughts!

Good Morning! Happy Saturday hope you’re all having a very nice and relaxing weekend or just a nice weekend, if you’re up and running around today! I got up a bit early today for no reason, but then went back to sleep for a while, originally when I got up it was about 7:48am I believe, I had a feeling it was early the first time I got up, I just didn’t know it was that early and when I went back to sleep and got up again, it was about 8:26am! I tend to get up around 8am anyway so that’s my usual time of getting myself up, if my body wakes me up early….I’ll get up about 7am and will stay up during that time if I feel I can’t get back to sleep or I’m just feeling like an early bird!

but if I’m just getting up early for nothing, I’ll randomly find myself up between the times of 2am, 3am, 4am, 5am & 6am, lately though the earliest of early of me getting up will be about like maybe 5am or 6am tops the other times are only when I have too much in my head and I have trouble sleeping…..the latest that I tend to get up or prefer to get up is 9am…..sometimes on rare occasions 10am, but that’s only when I’m really really tired and haven’t slept in a while, it’s not my preferred time to get up, but when it happens I know it’s because I barely slept so I try not to beat myself up when I do get up at that time!

I don’t really know why I’m writing about this so if you’re confused well so am I, sometimes I just write whatever feels like coming out and I try not to question it, but I don’t have a clue on why I just explained all of that to you guys…..don’t mind me! Hopefully everyone’s morning has gone well, I know for some of you out there, it’s probably the afternoon or getting close to the evening time, It’s 10am now as I’m continuing writing this post….when I got up this early morning I sat outside for a bit and was taking a lot of things in, for one….you know we’ve arrived in September cause it’s getting more chilly out, although it tends to be pretty cold in the early mornings anyway, but even when it’d not super early and the suns out beaming all over you, you tend to notice how different the air is and how cooler it’s gotten compared to the other days!

You know it’s September when you start to see more Crows flying by, before you’d only see them here and there, but the amount of crows I’ve been seeing since September started just by sitting outside is a good amount to count, it’s quite mad! I know I recently talked about doing a lot of thinking about things, which I am, I’ve not stopped thinking recently, there’s a lot going on personally, some a little too personal to share on here, although sometimes I want to, but I don’t for the simple fact of, it’s not everyone’s business, there are things you keep to yourself and there are things you only share with close people…..

Sometimes though, you don’t even want to share it with the people around you either, because you feel like it will only burden them and it’s best to not say anything and deal with it yourself! However it can get a lot to handle and sometimes you don’t know what to do, but you keep trying anyway, even when you know you should probably stop…..and you want to stop, but then just when you think that everything is good…..it comes right back and you’re there having to deal with it again! You keep strong though and you push through!

but life will keep pushing you until you do something and that could either be approaching the situation and facing the music or you leave it alone and sometimes life pushes you, for you to leave it alone or for you to finally say “THAT’S IT, NO MORE” I guess it all comes back to choosing your battles knowing when to fight or to just surrender, lay down the sword and walk away…..sometimes that’s hard because it could mean leaving something that was once important to you behind…..but at some point you have to realize that you can’t fight every battle and you can’t be the one to fix everything! You can be there for people and you help them in the best way possible, but if they refuse to listen and just continuously bring nothing, but drama after drama, you have to think about what’s best for you and your health!

Ask yourself if you want to keep fighting this fight!? Don’t get me wrong some things are definitely worth fight for, like love, happiness and whatever else you feel is worth it! That being said…..there are things that don’t need to always be fought over and if you find yourself stuck in the same old storm and fighting the same battle constantly, eventually you’re not going to have enough energy left to fight or just use for yourself and that’s where you’ll need to worry because without energy, you’ve already lost the battle….so save your energy and use it wisely on what to use it on!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Let’s Talk: Clocker

Happy Thursday! Hope you all are well and safe, boy was yesterday quite the day, I don’t know how many people experienced last nights hurricane, we had a lot of flooding happening, water even came into our house, it wasn’t too bad, we caught it before it got worst, but it was a good amount of water, but more like puddles of water so nothing got damaged luckily, in other places though that’s a different story, but it was okay! For those who also experienced the really unexpected bad storm, I hope you all are doing well and that it wasn’t too bad for you guys!

Now let’s talk about what this post is about…..you’re probably looking at the title going “huh!?” Clocker for those unsure, is a video game that I downloaded not that long ago, I’ve only played it once, it’s pretty much a puzzle game with a pretty neat story, you can also consider it an adventure game as well! Clocker from what I gathered playing it is about a father trying to get back to his daughter, I’ll try not to spoil the game too much in case some of you find it interesting and want to play it for yourselves, but pretty much you are given this old looking Clock by some random old guy and as you advance in the game, you find that time has stopped and you’re there trying to figure out how to restart it so that you can get back to your daughter!

There’s more to it obviously, but you have to play it to understand the concept of it! Like I said it’s a really neat game, it’s different to what I would normally play, but it’s really nice, in the game the clock that you get from the old guy, you soon discover that it let’s you control certain events so whatever is frozen you can help advance it and rewind to get through each section so you can collect the things that are needed, did I mention that the father character in the game fixes clocks for a living!? So being that you disable and reassemble clocks and watches and that, you have to get all the missing pieces that came off from the stopwatch, yeah! Like I said it’s pretty cool, I didn’t get that far into the game, I’m kind of stuck on a level, I would get so close to solving it, but will still end up missing something so I got to go back and figure it out!

I wasn’t expecting to enjoy the game has much as I did, when I first played it it wasn’t hard to understand, you start off taking apart a watch and going through the story mode of the game with certain dialogs, which was kind of fun, I liked taking apart things, I haven’t played it in a couple of weeks though, but I will eventually get back into it soon, it was really fascinating! I have a feeling I know what the message of the game is, but before I share it, I want to play it more to see if it is what I think it is, which it might end up being cause it seems to be going in that direction, but I want to enjoy the game and discover what other things it has going for it, just play it, understand it better, once I finish the game I will do a part two on it and update you on it’s story and let you know if I got the message to it correct! Hopefully I didn’t spoil anything on the game for you guys if I did….I’m sorry, but if I didn’t then cool!

I would recommend anyone who wants to try out a new game to give this one a try, the graphics and gameplay may be a little different to what you might like in a game, depending what kind of games you like and all, but I still would say to give it a try, it might surprise you and who knows it might be your new favorite game, but if it’s something that you think you personally wouldn’t go for then that’s okay too, I didn’t think I was going to go for it before I actually played it, but I also still had it in my wish list to try, because it was something that looked interesting, but everyone’s different!

If this game is something that catches your attention then go get it, it’s actually not that bad in price! I got it during a sale, but I think it’s about 6 dollars-10 the max…..correction it’s actually 4 dollars ($3.99 USD 3.59 GPB) I went and checked, but yeah you can find this game on the Nintendo eshop, if this game is something you’d consider then I definitely recommend it! Part 2 of this post will be up eventually and that post will be my full thoughts on the game once I’ve finished it of course!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Transitions With Rain….

Good Morning and Happy September 1st! Hope that you all are having a good one so far, it’s a bit mad that August is now over, which means that we’re getting closer and closer towards the cooler and colder days so say farewell to the short sleeves, capris/shorts and beach days, unless you’re planning to go somewhere where it’s summer year round or your moving to a more hotter environment if you are then you can just keep all your summer clothes out and say hi to summery weather again pretty soon! I’ll never understand how people can live in very hot places, I was in PR for a week and a few days back in July and oh my gosh, I could not handle the heat every single day, I was done with it by Day 3 of being there, I wouldn’t be able to live in a place that’s hot all the time, so it always mind boggles me how some people genuinely talk about how their going to move to places like PR or Florida!

Ask me that and I’m like no thanks, I never wanted to live in hot places, I really don’t like Summer that much, some days are fine, but after a while I’m hoping for Fall or Spring to roll around, I love Spring and Autumn, because with Spring it’s not too hot and you can enjoy the weather without it being too much, it’s always breezy during that season and with Autumn…..it’s always just cool, not too cold, you can wear cardigans, boots, sweaters, both Spring and Fall have the right amount of warm and cool and you can’t go wrong with that, might be just me that thinks that, but it’s true!

I probably already spoke about this a few times, but when I was younger I always wanted to go to the UK and visit, not only that, but I always pictured myself living there as well, I don’t know why!? I just always felt a connection with it and so it was always on my Wishlist to go over there and see what it’s like, I still feel that and still hope to go there, plus I always thought that it had pretty good weather, like over there is always just cool weather and that! I know it tends to rain over there a good amount, although I did learn recently that it’s not all of the UK where it rains! I guess we just assume that it’s always raining overseas because it’s what we hear….like I used to think that it always rained in London,

but noo, in England it doesn’t rain as much as people think, it’s actually just in Scotland that it rains mostly and if I remember correctly that’s because they’re closer to the mountains compared to other places within the United Kingdom, it’s quite an interesting thing to learn! England’s weather is similar to our weather though, which is cool, it’s nice knowing that it’s both the same and different at the same time! Don’t really know why I’m taking about the weather over in the UK, I guess it was in my mind and so I thought I’d let it out!

Let’s talk about September that was the whole point of this post anyway right!? It’s a weird start with a September for me anyway, although now that I’m thinking about it, I kind of have been feeling like that with these past few months lately, them being weird and all, not sure why, but today specifically started off weird, I woke up feeling fine and then emotions started coming to me and fear crept up on me, right when I was about to record a new podcast episode, I have no idea why it happened, but I did push through after I gave myself a bit, but it was just very weird, I recorded the episode and even talked a bit about what I was feeling and other things, I’m debating on whether or not to post it, but I feel seeing that I’ve got and mentioned it in this post that I might as well go through with sharing it!

I feel like September is going to be another odd month, but I also believe that it will hold something good and unexpected and that we shouldn’t give up on it too quickly, I mean it just started so it’s best to keep our heads up and look for the good that it has in store or at least expect what is coming without expecting it if that makes sense!? Pretty much just keep a look out for it, but still try and keep yourself productive and slightly busy and whenever it arrives you’ll be both happy and a little surprised as well, sometimes that’s the best experience!

Update:

Here’s my new podcast episode, it’s got a mixture of both August and September thoughts as well as some other things!

Let's Talk: A Bit Of August and September (Plus Some Personal Thoughts) Ep. 36 Daydreamer's Podcast

Zoo Adventures (Giraffe’s, Stingrays and a Dog!?)

Good Evening, hope everyone is doing well, I know in my last post I said I was going to be out a while, but I also said that I would write when I was feeling inspired as well and today I was feeling a bit inspired, now I’m not sure how long this post will be, but I just wanted to share on an experience that I had today, I’m writing this post on Sunday by the way, not sure if I’m going to be posting this right away, but I figured I still write about what I have in mind of sharing!

So I went to a zoo today, not the first time I’ve been to one, but I did do a few new things that I haven’t done before, I went with my friend/sister in law and her 4 year old son (my nephew) and it was a good time, it wasn’t too hot, which was nice after this very long of a heatwave week, it was nice and cool today even though it was pretty cloudy, but it wasn’t that bad, it was good!

I fed a giraffe which was kind of interesting, I’ve never fed a giraffe before so it was a nice experience, I tend to forget just how big giraffe’s are, like I know they’re pretty tall and everything, but when you haven’t seen one for a while you tend to forget just how tall they actually are and being in front of one today, giving it lettuce to eat….it was kind a very cool experience, I liked it! We also saw two males trying to out dominate each other…..one thing I will never understand is why giraffe’s insist on hitting each other with their long necks!? They weren’t going at it too bad, but just seeing them smack each other just to see who was the strongest…..it’s like why, but I guess that’s how it is in the animal world, it’s an odd and sometimes scary thing to see, but luckily it didn’t go too far, they were still small giraffes anyway!

I also got to feed birds for the first time, they were like little parrots or parakeets, I’m not really sure on the bird species, I wasn’t looking at the signs there, but I think they were like parakeets or something, I had one bird just sit on the stick with the bird food on it and just go to town, never had that happened before, but it was nice, we were with the birds for a good while, my nephew was trying to get the birds to come to him eventually he had a few near him, getting to feed them and everything! We went into a butterfly exhibit as well, it was nice, I’ve never been in one before, we also got to feed some goats…they’re very greedy, but also cute in their own way!

We saw some reptiles, monkeys, one monkey was loving the little playground they had and was moving on the obstacle course, he went down the slide, he was just having a great time, it was good to see! Oh get this a dog and a cheetah in the same exhibit!? Not even kidding, we were heading to go where the ponies were, my nephew wanted to ride one and as we were walking, we stopped to see a cheetah taking a nap and I noticed across from the cheetah their was a dog, like an actual Labrador retriever dog…..at first I was a little concern wondering how the dog got in there,

but I soon learned that both the Cheetah and dog were best friends and that they were raised together, plus they were only born a week apart! That’s the most adorable and cutest thing ever, never would I have guessed a dog and cheetah to be best friends and to see them in the same place, it was soo awesome!! We saw some pigs as well, I got to pet a stingray….it was odd and slimy, but pretty nice, stingrays are kind cute I won’t lie, one stingray loved getting petted he kept going around the same place just so people would acknowledge him lol! There was a lot of different animals that we saw while at the zoo, we also went on a little trolley train ride, it was pretty short, but it was mainly for the kids to enjoy so I guess it was okay, my nephew kept calling it Thomas the Train…..

Yeah he’s in that phase where everything train wise is Thomas or the other trains in that show that he knows, he’s a weird and sometimes scary kid, I say that for a reason, but I do love him, he’s a funny one! But yeah, it was good day, got to see a lot of things and experience new stuff too and see cute animals, we didn’t get to see them all, but we saw a good amount which was good!

P.S.

We got to see some turtles too, some were huge then you had the sea turtles, one of my favorite kind of turtles might I add!

I Just Realized Something….

Hiya everyone, I just wanted to write something real quick, it’s been a few days, I know, but I’m back…..Hope that you all are doing okay and that your week’s been good! On to what I wanted to share, it’s going to be one of my random posts so just bare with me! So I just came to the realization earlier today that there’s no holidays in August, at all! Every other month has a holiday, but August, it literally goes from January-July and from there Sept-December like WHAT!?

Am I the only one that finds that odd!? I probably am the only one that finds that odd, but I was having a look at one of my journals and in it, it has a section where it tells you each holiday and what month and day it’s on and I saw nothing for August and I just found that super weird so I had it in my head to want to write about it for some reason like it was my first thought…..but yeah….I mean I guess you could count birthdays, but they aren’t really a holiday are they!? Not an actual question by the way, I know they aren’t,

Unless you’re the kind of person to celebrate your birthday the entire month then I guess it would be considered a holiday for you, other then that, not a holiday, I don’t celebrate my birthday the whole month, just that one day only! I just found that to be very interesting, a little surprised I never actually noticed that before to be honest, although if you really think about it, why didn’t anyone come up with a holiday for August!? Maybe there weren’t anything special going on then which could be the reason to why we don’t have an official holiday with this month, but still, it’s something that gets your mind wondering innit!?

Who knows maybe someone made up a holiday for this month, I mean we do have things like National Relaxation day, National Donut Day, I think there’s even ones for siblings and that….I guess those would technically be considered holidays for August, but official, OFFICIAL…..I think I need to accept that there isn’t one for this month and that’s okay, not every month needs a holiday, I just feel bad that August is left out of the official holiday month party…..then again,

August would be the only month to have a whole lot of creative holidays with it so in a way….it’s probably a good thing, who needs an official holiday anyway when you can be creative!?

That’s all my thoughts on that, I know it’s bare random and probably wasn’t worth a whole blog post, but my mind couldn’t help itself, I mean I almost just wrote it as a tweet, however I felt like giving it a post and seeing what came out with it sooo here it is!

P.S.

Happy Birthday to anyone celebrating in August the whole month and to anyone celebrating it during this month in general, hope you’re enjoying it and it’s been a good one for you!

Update:

I thought I already shared this episode on here, but think I forgot, here’s one of my podcast episode from last week!

Let’s Talk: Favorite Summer Movies….

Goood Morning Everyone, hope your days been going well so far! We’re coming close to the end of Summer as well as this month, although this month has made me all confused, the fact that it’s just now gotten to the middle of the month feels very weird, I’m writing this post on the 12th of August, you might be wondering why I’m saying that, it’s because this post won’t be posted today, also I don’t know if it’s just me, but this week has felt like it’s taking a bit to get over and we’re only half way there…..but it’s okay we’re going to keep going the best way we can, that’s all you can do!

Seeing that we’re in the summer still, I thought we’d talk about some movies and by movies I mean some favorite of minds, I was trying to do some thinking yesterday and came up with this idea, it’s probably not the first time someone has done it though, but I had this idea (now that I’m thinking about it, it probably was the day before yesterday that I thought about this) I wanted to talk about “Summer movies” but what I consider to be summer movies, if they aren’t considered to be summer movies already! I have 3 movies that I’m going to be sharing upon, one is already a summer movie while the other two I’m going to put them in that category in cases they aren’t, but should be!

First Up: High School Musical 2

Yes I’m talking about a Disney Original Movie here a.k.a DCOM, when I think of Summer movies this is pretty much the one movie that always comes to mind for me, even though I haven’t watched this one in quite some time, it never leaves my mind! High School Musical was one of my favorites growing up and High School Musical 2 is a very well known and loved movie, most people will probably choose this one over the first movie, but some people like the sequels better then the originals, doesn’t mean the originals don’t have love either, it’s just like that at times!

With High School Musical 2, once summer hits, this is the first movie everyone goes to cement the moment of Summer vacation and let’s not forget the famous song that starts it all “What Time Is It!? (Summertime) like that is every kids theme when summer arrives so of course it has to me on my list, plus it’s a good movie and the reason why it’s in my top favorite summer movie list, it’s the kind of thing that gets you pumped, excited and just ready to enjoy Summer….even though Summer isn’t one of my personal favorite seasons….whenever I see this movie, I won’t lie, it can get you in the mood of wanting to have a good Summer!

Up Next: Lilo & Stitch

Okay hear me out on this, Lilo and Stitch is probably one of the most UNDERRATED movies EVER!! It’s crazy though because people remember the movie, they just don’t talk about it enough and that’s my problem, like how can you not love this movie, I just don’t understand!! I’m always thinking about Lilo & Stitch, it’s always in the back of my mind, always and I just don’t get why people don’t see it as a Summer movie, I mean it’s literally set in Hawaii!!? Tell me who doesn’t get hyped over the opening of the movie when they see Lilo in the ocean swimming as the title of the movie pops up and you hear that wonderful song that is Hawaiian Rollercoaster coming in as the scene plays while you watch Lilo rushing to get to her Hula class because she was late trying to feed Pudge the fish his usual PB&J because she didn’t want to give him tuna which is all they had in house like come on…..you got to love it!

And I do, I flipping love this movie, I don’t watch it often, but it’s always on my watchlist, it’s such a beautiful storytelling movie, like if I could explain it I would, but this movie is sooo wonderful, this little girl takes in an alien, that’s actually an experiment gone rogue, because Jumba messed up that she thinks is a dog and she’s raised by her older Sister Nani because their parents passed in a terrible accident…..it’s a heartfelt kind of movie, but it’s so worth watching if you’ve never watched it before, my wording of what the movie is about isn’t probably very good….but the movie is and I would love it, if people both watched and talked about it more, because it deserves our love and attention, hence why it’s in my Summer movie list, I mean why not consider it a summer movie, it’s got all the feels of summer and again it’s based in Hawaii which it’s always summer over there, I mean it is an island after all, just watch Lilo and Stitch, you’ll love it!!

Last, but certainly not least: The Parent Trap (with Linsey Lohan)

Okay so this might already be considered a summer movie, I’m not really sure, all I know is that I enjoy this movie a lot! Now I am aware that there is an older version of the Parent Trap, never watched it though, probably should because I’ve never seen it and I’m sure it’s very good! Anytime The Parent Trap comes on…..I’m always watching it, whatever I’m able to watch of it anyway, I don’t always watch the whole thing, however I have watched the whole movie before though! I must say The Parent Trap has become a little bit of a favorite of mine these days, I don’t know the actual release date of this movie, but from the time it premiered to seeing it now….I’d say it’s aged like a fine wine and I don’t even drink, I just like that saying lol!

Again, I don’t know if people see this movie as a Summer movie, but it should be I mean their at a summer camp at the start of the movie, maybe not at first, but they’re at a camp so if this movie is not considered a Summer kind of movie, then I’m personally going to put it in the Summer movie category, because it needs to be there! I love this movie though, I just love the vibe that it gives off, plus it’s got a love story and I’m quite the hopeless romantic so you know I’m sitting there enjoying every moment when Annie and Halie (however it’s spelled) switch places and full their parents all while trying to come up with a scheme to get them back together again so they can be a family again,

Even the butlers of Annie and Halie’s household’s find love with each other, how sweet is that!? I just love those moments and the fact that they find a way to reunite, mainly because of their daughters, but still, I think it’s adorable, plus The Parent Trap is just one of the best movies if I haven’t said that already, but yeah definitely a summer movie The Parent Trap!

What movies do you guys consider to be Summer movies if not already in that category!?

All The Love ❤ ❤
