Math Problem Solved!? Sorta

Good Afternoon everyone, hope you’re all having a nice start of the week so far, we’re nearing the middle of August now, still a bit to go though before we actually approach the end of the month! So I know you’re probably wondering what this post is all about…..it’s sorta math related, but it’s not me complaining about it this time, I mean it’s still not my favorite subject, but this time what I’ll be talking about with math is a little important……to me and I wanted to share on it because I was really happy with myself so that’s another reason I thought I’d talk about it!

Let’s get to what exactly is this math important breakthrough we’re talking upon…..okay so some of you know that Math is usually not my strongest suit I like to wear, I don’t actually wear suits, but if I did I think I’d probably be a nice looking secret agent out there don’t you think!? If we’re talking math however…..well I know it’s one of my weaknesses, I’m not quite the greatest at it, but I still attempt and try to understand it regardless, speaking of that….it’s actually what I wanted to talk about, we all know a good amount on counting money right, I’m sure we all do!

The same question goes for counting coins in replace to dollars as money counting, a lot of people might be able to do that really well….me for a very long time, I’ll admit that counting coins and giving it as money if needed, I always had a problem with that, it was always something I felt to be a little bit of a big challenge to me and yes I know, it’s coins how can you mess up coins….there’s ways, also whenever we’re given coins, be honest no one really sees them as worth much, we see it and we’d rather have someone else keep the coins or we put them in jars and never look at them again, but coins are worthy, it’s just our brains don’t see them as worthy, me well if I see a penny on the floor, I check to see if it’s on heads and if it is I pick it up and if it’s not I turn it over for someone else to find who would like a little luck and that, most of you probably don’t believe in that stuff, but I do!

If someone is having a bit of a tough day, I like to think that a penny that’s turned on heads will catch their attention and bring a little smile to them, who knows, but yeah that’s not what we’re talking about here, I just thought I’d throw that in there….but to the story we go….long story short, I was organizing my bag and well I won’t say I found coins in my wallet, they were always there I just kind of forget about them being there a lot of the time….anyway, I took out the coins and I don’t really know why I did this, but I decided to count them! Now I know the basics of coin counting,

Mainly with the quarters, you know the 25, 50, 75, 1.00 that, but when adding in dimes and nickels to the mix, normally that’s when my brain goes into a sing along of the Night Before Christmas song, where Jack sings about I think the other seasons or when he sees snow for the first time, but just the part that goes “What’s this, what’s this” yeah just that part over and over ooor the High School Musical part of Status Quo, where Sharpay sings “This is not what I want, this is not what I planned and I just got to say, I do not understand….that’s me with adding up coins together!

HOWEVER today was a breakthrough, I even took a math quiz that asked some questions about what coins equaled to the same amount and how much each amount had within the set of coins shown if that makes sense, so “Here’s a set of coins, how much is here” that kind of thing! I sat there and did my best to answer correctly to see if I understood it well enough and guess what guys…..I got it! I got 5 questions in a row correct, my lucky number by the way…..we won’t talk about question 6…..I missed counted…..not by a lot, I just went a little over when I should’ve went lower, had I counted correctly I would have definitely gotten it, but I just didn’t double check, but it’s okay!

I got 5 correct back to back and that’s a new record for me and I am proud of myself for it lol, so proud that I wanted to write about it, but yeah, August 9th, 2021….I figured out and can now say, I know how to count coins, I know you’re probably reading this and possibly went to another more interesting post or may be reading this as if I’m a little mad and wondering why I am excited about it, it’s because even though it’s a small thing, I still consider it both an achievement as well as an improvement in my math skills, I’m still not the greatest with math, but for me I see it as a step closer to getting a little bit better with it and it’s important to try your best to improve on the things that you may not be that great at, it doesn’t matter how big or small it may be a little improvement is still a pretty big achievement!

So remember don’t think small things aren’t important, if it makes you happy and you’re enjoying yourself and feel proud of yourself for it, then go right ahead and celebrate those small victories, they’re just as important as the big ones!

Sooo I also recorded this post as an episode, it’s similar with a slight different thought approach, it’s pretty much a shorter version of the story in case you don’t feel like reading this lengthy post!

Don't Stop Improving or Believing….Ep. 31 Daydreamer's Podcast

Happy Monday, hope you're all doing alright! In today episode, we just chat a little about self improvements and being happy and proud of yourself on any kind of achievement that you come across including the small moments in life, we always focus on the big achievements that we have in life, which is great, but it's okay to embrace and feel happy about some of the small moments that we get as well, they too can be pretty important!!

Let’s Talk: High School Musical 2 (13 Year Anniversary)

How’s everyone’s Monday going so far!? Hope it’s treating you all well and isn’t giving you too much of a time!! If today’s been a little shifty throughout your day hopefully a little nostalgia might help, now I know not everyone is a big fan of the High School Musical movies franchise (also series now apparently) but when I was younger, High School Musical and anything Disney really, well it was all I really watched at the time, now not so much,

but I still like to enjoy all the old shows I grew up with within the Disney Channel as well as most of the movies, if you couldn’t tell by the title already today we’re going to be discussing the anniversary of the second High School Musical Movie, it was today August 17th when the movie premiered in 2007 making it 13 years old today…….

13 today, how crazy is that!? I remember when this movie first premiered and how excited I was to be watching it, for those who have watched all the High School Musical movies, I believe this one was everyone’s favorite between the first and third movie, all the movies to me we’re great so asking me if I have a favorite well, i’m not sure if i’d be able to answer that really!? I think for a while anytime Summer came around the first song that people thought about was “What Time Is It!?”

I mean this movie was pretty much a Summer theme tradition to watch whenever Summer Vacation was a go, to be fair i’d say High School Musical 2 had one of the best soundtracks within the High School Musical franchise, I mean you had Bet On It, I Don’t Dance, Work It Out and so fourth, but besides the soundtrack, High School Musical 2 is probably one of the best movies of High School Musical, although you can’t forget about the first movie that introduced HSM and of course the great send off that the last movie gave us of the characters we’ve grown to love and still love in fact!!

I’m sure that most of us probably still listen to all the soundtracks from each movie, I won’t tell you that I don’t because that’d be a lie…..I actually have a few songs from each movie that I still listen to, til this day not all the time, but when I feel I need to or just cause I want to, in fact I just recently checked out the soundtrack (all of them) as well as purposely going to listen to certain songs within this month so yeah i’m still a fan of HSM!!

That all said though, the fact that today marks 13 years since this movies original release, is mind-blowing!! Although I know it’s to be expected for anniversaries of movies and albums and that to come, I mean if something is released on specific day it’s bound to have an anniversary one way or another right!?

Still though, it’s always amazing when you know you’ve watched something or maybe listened to something for the first time and then years go by and sometimes if it’s something that’s important or just meant a lot to you,

it’s amazing how you still remember the very first time it appeared to you and maybe what you were doing in that moment when it happened or even where you were, it’s the details of it or with it to where that feeling of I remember this…..comes from, it may not mean much or be as big of a deal to a lot of people, but to you and those who shared that same feeling with you in that moment, it can mean everything and that’s what’s so great about it, that experience of getting to see or hear something for the first time!!

I don’t think there’s ever going to be a moment where we’re not still surprised with that kind of thing, but that’s all I have to say I just wanted to share this, HSM was a big part of my childhood, I grew up with it and still grow up with it……I don’t care how old I get I know that i’ll still quote and sing all of the songs when it comes to these kind of movies!!

Now Playing Ashley Tisdale, Song Of The Day/Night: Voices In My Head

Now before you ask, I just want to let you know that i’m actually having a pretty good night, although i’m super tired, but I needed to write a blog post because I didn’t yesterday, so if I have to stay up until midnight or even later I will, if it means posting something new, it’s only 11pm at the moment, but it is close to midnight and I normally try and fall asleep around that time so i’m hoping I don’t make this blog post a long one.

The reason for this title here, is because I just listened to Ashley Tisdale’s new single Voices In My Head and I loved it!! Now a lot of you might know of her and a lot of you might not, but that’s okay no worries, i’ll tell you a bit on her, like for one, she’s mainly known as an actress, you might’ve heard of the movie called High School Musical……yeah Ashley plays the character Sharpay Evans, she also starred in Suite Life Of Zack And Cody, she had her own spin off after High School Musical called Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure, so she’s pretty much apart of the Disney Channel circle, well she was.

She’s been in a whole lot of other movies, she also I believe directed and guested starred on a show called Young & Hungry, which i’ve watched, but haven’t finished watching so I have to catch up, even though I think the show finished already so I think I just have to watch it, but yeah Ashley’s known, but I don’t think she’s super big, but she’s known.

Anyway back to the song, which again is great, really great……..well to me anyway, I don’t know if you guys are gonna like it, but if you want to hear it, i’ve added it for you if you’re interested, I loved it though, had a big smile on my face while listening to it. I only heard it once, buuut once is enough to get me to like it and it’s Ashley of course i’m gonna love it!!! I’ve been waiting for new music from her for soooo long and finally she’s released a new single, how amazing is that!!? Okay caaaalm…….caaalm…….alrighty, okay.

Like I was saying, Ashley’s great and her voice is great as well, now her voice isn’t like everyone else’s, but I still find it to be very unique, it’s not like super powerful, but I find her voice is still very lovely. Now although a lot of people know her as more of an actress and of course a lot of people know that she has a voice on her because of High School Musical, what a lot of people don’t know is Ashley did and does music as well, besides her singing and starring in High School Music (1, 2 & 3) She actually had two pretty good albums (in my opinion).

Her first album being Headstrong, which is a classic and one of my favorite albums to go back and listen to, whenever I want to relive part of my young years (i’m not that old don’t worry, still young) I still have that album til this day actually (there’s a story on the first time I owned it, but I won’t bore you guys with that one…….I hope i’m not boring you guys now) Headstrong released back in 2007 and her other album Guilty Pleasure released back in 2009, was also pretty good. That album, i’d say was a little bit more on the mature side, more than headstrong was, but I liked that it didn’t go too overboard, however I still would say that it was mature for it’s time, just when it comes to certain songs, but it wasn’t like super bad on the mature scale, which is good.

Both albums we’re great, I loved them, like I said not only do I have Headstrong, but I also own Guilty Pleasure too, I was a pretty big fan of Ashley, not like super, but a big fan, you know sometimes you have those artists that you love and then you have your all times favorites. Ashley Tisdale is on my favorite artist lists, so there’s all time favorites, favorites, artists you like and then you have the “ahhh their alright” kinda artist. You know what i’m talking about…….and if you don’t, well then don’t mind me, i’m just in a really good mood and have this crazy amount of energy for some reason and decided to write my blog post for tonight all about Ashley Tisdale and you know what I don’t regret it, because this is actually the first blog post where I knew everything I was gonna write.

Probably my quickest one too, I started this close to 11:30pm and it’s around 12:30am midnight at the moment and that may seem like a long time to you guys to write on a post, buuut for me, it’s not, I normally take longer and that includes on shorter posts then this. I don’t really have much else to say, although it’s practically 1am……update it’s now around 1:30am as i’m finishing this so i’m just gonna leave this post here and get some sleep now………I hope you all have a great night/morning and or evening.
