June 31st….Oh Wait No It’s July….

This is just a joke guys, I know there isn’t a 31st in June…..a little shocking that we’re in July already…..I think everyone is surprised, it don’t feel anything like July yet, it’s a bit weird, hopefully the start of the month has treated you all well so far, even though we literally just started, the one thing I can say is that we’ve entered the month of my blog anniversary, it’s not yet….but it is coming soon and I have no idea what I should do for it…..I’ve been trying to come up something different to do, we’ll be going on 3 years here on the 11th of this month, 2 more weeks….actually a week from this Sunday coming up, so not this Sunday the following one, just making sure I’m making sense here!

Now I know that I’m not really looking to do anything too grand for my 3 years of blogging, I’m not really a showy kind of person, but I do want to do something special, now I’ve been thinking about this….had I not already brought in a podcast 4 months early that could of been a cool thing to bring in, but it’s here now, which is good, I’m happy that I decided to give it a go when I did! By the way it’s actually 3 months not 4, I introduced the Podcast here on the 3rd of April, but my first episode was uploaded the 19th of March, although on Spotify it will say the 20th, same as when Animal Crossing New Horizons was released (don’t ask) yeah I know, not sure why I did it like that, I think I just wanted to test it out before anything, at least that’s what I’m thinking!

But yeah, Podcast is already a thing soooo, I have to add something else, I did have some things in mind…..one of them I’m going to do when the anniversary arrives, it’s just a post that I’m going to do talking about what it’s been like blogging for 3 years….nothing too special there, but besides that I’m still trying to figure out what would be good to bring here….I could always poll it and have you guys be apart of it, which I wouldn’t mind, I’d love to include you guys, only if you want that is! I could add some choices I have in mind that you could choose from ooor if you have any suggestions on what you’d like to see/read mainly, if anything comes to mind, I could also go based on topics that I did before that you want me to do more of, for example Now Playing….you can choose an artist or song that you want me to listen to and I will give my thoughts on that artist/song the best way I can, stuff like that, just to shake things up, but of course, it’s your choice if you want to do that!!

I don’t know, I just want to do something different this time around and I would love for you guys to be apart of it with me, it’s been quite the journey, even though somedays it doesn’t feel like it, I can’t believe we’re close to 3 years on here though, SUPER close too….I know we’ve got some time left to decide, but I just thought I’d write about where my mind has been these past few days on the very first day of July! Have I mentioned how it doesn’t quite feel like July yet!?

Anyway, I hope you’re all doing well on this fine evening, you have a good rest of the day, stay cool and hydrated, as well as safe!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Bursting Energy…..

Happy Friday! Hope you’re all doing well this fine afternoon…..I got a bit of too much energy right now as I’m writing this and I’m not quite sure how to handle it, I feel good today, I feel a lot better than these past 2 days, the only thing is, I just don’t know what to do with myself with this amount of energy, I don’t want to use it all in one go, I would like to pace it better, but I’m finding myself slowly draining it by each super thought that fills me with excitement or just by thinking too much about things….not in a bad way, but just by like I said getting myself excited with ideas and looking forward to things, for example I’ve got 2 podcast episodes that I’m eager to do that will be coming in the next week or 2, they’re both childhood related and I’m excited to put my thoughts on them after so long, you’ll know about them in due time don’t worry!

Now as for the other thing that always tends to leave me excited when thinking about it, is something that I find myself going back to, that I want to try, that I have yet to try my hand at, I always think about it, but I’ve not yet decided on fully giving it a go even when I do feel it! Recently I’ve been researching on it more and every time I do, I get both happy and nervous about it, but I don’t know I just feel it to be something that keeps kind of calling to me to check it out, I just get nervous!

Although, I always on occasion and if not that, then here and there looking more and more into it and I feel like it’s a good time to see about it and see if I can find myself getting used to a lot, again I just get nervous thinking about it because I don’t know if I’ll be good at it, but then I think well I won’t know unless I give it a try and it’s not something that I need to be serious about in a sense of I can just be me and do it how I feel it to naturally come out, it’s just a nervous feeling one reason being because it’ll require me to show my face again and not just my voice which is something that I haven’t quite done in the past few months and it’s one of the reasons I haven’t decided on it just yet.

I know I’m still becoming more comfortable with my voice and so combining the two is a bit nerve-racking for me, I just get very uncomfortable in front of a camera, even though I’ve done it plenty before, but regardless to if it’s been so long or not it still takes me time to adjust when in front of a camera, part of me doesn’t mind it, but there’s also a part of me that would rather not, yet I also find myself thinking about doing it again…..I’m a weird one okay, I’ve accepted it!

I’m also very expressive though, when I’m passionate about something I either talk with my hands or I move my whole body and this even happens when I’m writing, I can’t help it lol! I’m considering it very thoroughly though it’s always in the back of my mind, I feel like if it was something that I felt strongly to do where it kept coming to me…..I’d pick a random day that felt good to do it and then tell you about it after I’ve done it and that’s how you know I went for it by being very curious and then saying you know what “let’s try it” Prepare yourself because that just might happen!

P.S.

I uploaded another episode to my Podcast yesterday so I’m just updating this post to share it, it’s a bit of a weird episode somewhat, but I feel there may be charm with it, possibly lol, if you would like to check it out you can find it here: Let’s Talk: Months & Animal Crossing (Friday Mood) You can also listen to it on Spotify as well!

January, January….

With this month pretty much over now, you’re probably asking yourself “hey how do you think it went!? Don’t ask me i’m still wondering that myself, you got your good days and your not so great day, but overall i’m still not completely sure how this month went, after being away for 3 months on here and just recently returning, you’d think i’d have a lot to say, well to tell you the truth, I really don’t!! Not as often as i’d like at least! However, I still try to bring something and i’m realizing that it’s probably going to be in the spare of the moment for a bit longer, unless I have something I really want to talk about, not thoughts related, but more on things that bring joy and happiness to me in the moments that they do.

My thoughts lately have been a bit everywhere these days with reasonings to it, but also just because they’re everywhere, whether that makes sense or not, hopefully you still get what i’m trying to say….i’m trying to find different things that I can share that will have me coming back here just wanting to share and maybe it’s going to take just a little bit longer and that’s something I have to be okay with….not just with being on here,

but in general, there are things in mind that I have been jotting down and although the thought and idea of it makes me excited….it’s still something that I get nervous about because it’s a whole new thing that i’ve yet to try and take a chance on…i’ve been trying to map it out, in a way I feel might work for me, in a sense where it doesn’t appear as too intimidating, as well as just trying to get myself warmed up for it!!

I may have it written down in a journal yes….but I know there’s a difference between it being an idea and thought compared to actually giving it ago and that’s what i’m trying to get myself warmed up for, being ready for this step of trying something new and just seeing what happens and it’s something I also find myself worrying about, but at the same time i’ve been trying not to bring it as a worry, but see it as something that i’m just preparing for and wanting to have it work out alright before fully getting into it, it’s just a double checking of everything making sure i’m okay with what I have set to go forth with if that makes sense!?

If I had to say how I think this month went, I guess that would be it, just having the thought of wanting to be better prepared for what i’m actually trying to do or better yet, having the idea of what i’m wanting to do….a lot of stuff has been coming out of nowhere and not saying that it’s a bad thing because most times things that come out of nowhere tends to be good and work out well, but sometime you just want to take a moment to really say to yourself “okay let me think about this for a second” with life a lot of things get rushed passed you and it can get very overwhelming and so having that little bit of spared time to really sit and reflect can save a lot of stressful days and help to clear the mind a little so you can feel a little better with where you feel you’re going with whatever journey you find yourself walking….that’s my view of this month!!

Hiii…..Happy Late New Yeeear Along With All The Other Holiday’s Prior!!

Alright let’s get this all out of the way without being awkward about it!! I’ve been gone for quiiite a while now as most or some may have noticed, my last post was back in October of last year, but as we all know we’re now in the year of 2021, it’s a bit crazy when you think about it I know!! Now we are in mid January close to moving to a New month, but we’ve still got a couple more days to this month before we transition over to that month so don’t go worrying too much about it!!

You might be wondering why i’ve been away for quite some time and the truth to that is……there was nothing for me to bring here…..I didn’t have much to say…..i’ve been also trying to figure out a lot of things in terms of not just new ideas, but I wanted to bring for myself, now whether that makes sense or not is to tell…..I didn’t feel happy with a lot of things, as much as I tried to share here, nothing ever felt important to share and because of that…..I just felt like I needed to step back from the things that I was doing within that time.

There was a lot of sorting that was needed from me and I felt and knew that, i’d like to say that i’ve sorted it all and i’m all good to go, but the truth is that’s not the case lol, there are still things that i’m working on, but from where I was and where i’m at now i’ve gotten a bit better that i’ve had the most trouble with, that aside I do still feel like I have a bit more to go before i’d say i’m at least 80-95% good!! 100% is a little too high right now for me to rate, but i’m in no rush to get to that percentage if i’m being honest I know i’ll get there eventually!!

In terms to how i’m feeling, obviously you have your days, that’s just part of being human, but for the most part i’d say i’ve been pretty alright, I feel good, but not GOOD with capital letters, it’s a little hard to explain,

I guess it’s kinda like a temperature thermostat, but instead of it telling you where you’re at on a hot/cold scale, it tells you where you’re at on a feeling scale and mine is at pretty alright/good, pretty alright is the middle and good (lower case letters) is just above it!! That’s where i’m at right now overall, which is good for me for now, I still worry about a lot of things that’s never going to change, but i’ve been slowly trying to embrace things more which is still new to me, but i’ve gotten better at it that I can say!!

I like to say that i’m still a work in progress, but slowly, yet surely I feel myself getting there little by little and i’m happy with myself about that, I still feel scared a lot of time with not really knowing where i’m going next, but that’s a fear within me that i’m doing my best to get over, I have been thinking of ideas where I have in mind of heading next, it’s something I have yet to try, but it’s something that has caught my interest and once I sort that all out i’ll speak of it more later down the line of course….

I do have another idea in mind that i’m probably going to try to mix in with my other idea, however this idea is one i’ve already had in my head for a while now…..again still have to sort it out first, obviously i’ll be doing it one by one because that’s the only way i’ll be able to fully give attention to it, but that’s just the half of it kinda….i’ve already written down slight notes to what I have in mind so i’d have an idea of how to do it, but because it’s something new and something that i’ve yet to try, I get nervous about it not knowing how it’s going to be, but if i’ve learned anything lately it’s to just let things happen when they happen and try not to think about it too much….which is something i’m still getting used as you can tell ha……

I’m sure once I get there, everything will just come through right then there, I just have to not think too much on it and let myself explore and figure it out on the way as scary as it may be and all, I just have to keep my focus on one thing at a time and know that everything else will follow along in the time that it’s supposed to. Excited, yet terrified in a good way of course!! I hope you all have been well and that this year has been treating you well, if you too are still on the journey of discovery of ones self,

know that no matter how worried you may be or how scared you may be…….it’s okay to feel that way….just take it one by one and whatever moment you’re in right now, embrace it and let it lead you somewhere you’d never think of going, in someway it’s bound to surprise you with where it takes you and wherever that may be….I wish you all the best on your adventures ^_^ Happy New Year and here’s to unexpected journey’s!!

Animal Crossing Wishlist

You know what I love!? Animal Crossing and yes i’m aware i’ve talked about this game a few times already, but I just can’t help it, it really is a good game, i’ve been playing the game since the gamecube…..okay yes and no, I did play the gamecube version, but at that time, I wasn’t sure what exactly I was meant to be doing in it, so I didn’t play it that much, it wasn’t until I got New Leaf to where I understood the whole concept of the game!!

I never played Wild World at least I don’t remember ever playing it……I did play City Folk though, I never had it personally, but my cousin did, I asked to borrow it a long time ago, pretty sure he’s forgotten and so I went and kept it, still have it too, he doesn’t mind, I don’t think he played it much anyway…..to be fair, I think I only played it a few times when I borrowed it, haven’t played it since though, but I did play it!!

Now we have New Horizons and I just love it!! I even went and created a second Island, I did the same thing when I was always playing New Leaf, I bought another copy so I could start from the beginning without deleting my other town……I then later traded that town in thinking I wasn’t going to miss it……in a way I do miss, but only because I would’ve liked to have seen my very first town after not playing it for a while, buuut you know it’s fine.

That aside though Animal Crossing is pretty much my life, not an exaggeration, what I mean by that is I really do love this game, but moving on, I wanted to create some kind of Wishlist, with the release of New Horizons we were introduced to the new add ons, by that I mean Nintendo had the thought of changing things up not just with the new Island setting,

but having it be based around updates, so instead of having all the holidays within the Animal Crossing world just automatically being there like in the previous games, they’ve now been coming in as updates to keep things fresh and new and so that people don’t go spoiling all the big events for other people that have yet to be seen, but with the new updates addition

That’s been brought to New Horizons, you’ve got people making Wishlists on what they’d like to see added to the game or what they feel needs to be improved on, which is pretty cool, I mean there are still a lot of things that have yet to be introduced with the game so to be able to give suggestions on what could be added because of that, is probably one of the best features that Nintendo ever introduced us to now even with the ideas that we may give, obviously they won’t go adding all of them, but there is a possibility that some of the ideas that we may have for the game could be a future add in if not at least a consideration of some sort and with that possibility,

You know that we’re bound to get our creative juices flowing!! Now with my Wishlist, I might not actually have a lot that i’d want added either because I still have yet to think of what I would like to see be brought to New Horizons or mainly due to what everyone else already suggested, but i’m gonna try and think here, see if I can come up with 5 things and if not then at least 3…..

Number 1:

Someone Edited New Horizons to the New Leaf Promotion poster with Brewster on it….

I’ll admit this one being already suggested, however everyone seems to agree on it, so technically it’s nothing new, but i’d really like for Nintendo to bring back the Cafe (a.k.a) the Roost, so we can see Brewster, it been a thing in all of the games so it should be a thing in New Horizons, now with that, there is a chance that we will get this added eventually,

now I don’t really like spoilers so if you know the details on when, please don’t tell me because I want to be surprised whenever it ends up being announced by Nintendo….that being stated, it’d be nice to have a cafe in the game again, I liked visiting the roost and hearing the theme song and also getting to hang out with Brewster, if they don’t end up bringing him back for some reason, although I don’t see why they wouldn’t!?

but if they don’t, it’d be cool to see who they do add to the cafe when it is brought back…..eventually, I just want a cafe just like everyone else, this one highly requested, but we’ll just have to wait and see on it!!

Number 2:

I had to think on this one a bit, but there was one thing that kept popping up and that was Label, if you don’t know Label she is the third sister to the Able Sisters Sable and Mable, she used to be called Labelle and worked with Gracie in the old days, but now she’s on her own Fashion journey, but it’d be nice if she was given her own shop and if not that, then have her working with her sister again, better yet, just upgrade the able Sisters shop all together, that’s something we’ve never had in the other games so why not add that towards the list I mean Nooks Cranny got an upgrade so why shouldn’t the Able Sisters get one as well!? JUST SAYING!!

Number 3: KAPP’N WE NEED KAPP’N THAT IS ALL!!

No i’m kidding, well yes, but also that’s not it, I can’t seem to think of anything else i’d like to see added, so with the next 2-3 add in’s we’ll go more on what i’d like for Nintendo to improve on, one of them being able to do the crafting and such in a grouping kind of way what I mean is Clams and Nook Miles, for example with the clams if there’s 10 of them that should be considered a whole bad of bait instead of it being 1 bait, 2, bait, 3 bait, 4…..you get it!!

It already takes a while to dig up the clams, it shouldn’t take another long while to craft them when those 10 clams could literally be put into one round-up of bait…..I really hope Nintendo takes this one into consideration and improve on it cause people aren’t going to look for clams that’s been added specifically with this game if they’re just going to be crafted one by one, if you want to make it easy just do what you did with the fences when crafting them and add that feature to the clams as well!!

As for Nook Miles, being able to have the option to choose how many Nook Mile Tickets we want to redeem would be nice, with this suggestion I always think about Pokemon and when you’re gathering Potions and restocking on the Poke’ball and how you’re able to choose how many you’d like, I really appreciate Pokemon for this because not only does it save time, but it also keeps it simple and you gotta love that!! I hope Animal Crossing takes a page out of Pokemon’s book because this feature is better!! sorry…..

Number 4:

We’re going to try and get to five here…..here’s another idea that I just thought about, more villager interaction, for example having them come over like they used to or having more games you can play with them besides treasure hunt every once in a while stuff like that, I mean we’re already living on the same Island why not have these kind of features,

I know people talk about wanting more dialog and them having more personality and that, which yes I agree on, but it’d be nice to really hang out with your villagers at times, maybe even have it to where they randomly ask something of their favorite thing, see how much you know them, it’s just an idea…..

Last idea attempt…..Number 5:

I don’t know how great of idea this one is, but it’s in my head so i’ll share it…..maybe and this is a big maybe…..have some special NPC’s make a cameo, an appearance of some sort, so what they did with Reese and Cyrus, maybe have Phineas make a surprise appearance or have Dr. Shrunk appear again, I think having some of the favorite NPC’s that people enjoyed seeing would be nice, even if it’s just for the moment,

Maybe we won’t see them a lot, but it’d be nice if we could have them show up on the Island for a visit and maybe they would have some kind of rare treasures that you can’t really get playing the game everyday or most days, Even if you created another May Day kind of Maze thing and add some of them there like you did with Rover, have that be like a special event that we get here and there, that too would be great, I mean with that we’d always be excited for something and plus I think it’d be nice if we could get a visit from some of the other special characters.

That’s my wishlist for now, I honestly don’t have anything else to add, at least in this one, I might go and make another one when other ideas strike of course, but that’s all for now, let me know what you’d like to see as future updates if you too play Animal Crossing: New Horizons and with that i’ll see you all in the next post!! ^_^

Random Days Of Productiveness (Extra Boost)

So it’s Friday which technically means the weekend has arrived and who doesn’t love that!? I don’t know how you guys are getting on with your Friday, but for me….. I don’t really know where to go really, I just feel like I want to do a lot of things, but I don’t know what those things are exactly, you know what I mean!? It’s like you feel your energy is a bit like woosh,

but you have no idea why, all you know is that your mind is on go, so like you feel more productive in a way than you might on most days, I don’t know if it’s like this for some of you, but I always feel like I just have random days where i’ll get up feeling inspired to be productive out of nowhere, now i’m not saying that’s a bad thing in fact, it’s probably a very good thing, because it’s like my brain finally has something in mind

That it wants to do and so it’ll kind of give me some ideas throughout the morning to see how we want to go about things I guess you can say and this always happens, out of all the days, there’s always that one random day throughout a random week to where i’m just in this mode of extra productive, like I don’t even play New Horizons that’s how much of a mode I end up being in, I know that doesn’t sound like a big deal and it’s probably considered a good thing as well which yes……i’ll admit that!!

I just find it to be wild though how it’ll just randomly happen, it’s really weird, but I guess I shouldn’t go questioning it, those days are probably the best kind of days for me in a sense because it’s making me want to push forward than on normal days, sometimes though, when in that mode, I still have some trouble deciding on where exactly I want my focus to be on

and so it’ll leave me stressing a bit on it, but I always try and take it without having it go away from me if that makes sense!? There are days where I probably don’t use those days as well as I should, but I still try my best with it, even if I don’t always grab it right away, it’s interesting though, but good!!

Have you guys ever had those kind of days!?

Ways Of Productivity…..

It’s the 5th of May today and I believe I just rhymed a moment ago……I know this month just started a few days ago, but anyone else feel it moving a little quickly and slowly at the same time!? Just me okay…..how are you guys doing, have you been holding up well with everything!? Are you feeling okay, how’s the week been treating you so far!? I know things are still ongoing, but I do hope you’re all doing alright at least!!

On to productivity…..we all have different ways of being and keeping productive, some of us are more productive in the morning, some around the afternoon and then you have those little percentages of people that are more productive around the evening, towards the dead of night to be exact

We all have a specific time of day that we may feel more energized, creative or just have times that we prefer overall, whether those times work within or productivity or not. Now even when we try to be more productive with our time, we don’t always know the best way to keep productive, I don’t know about you guys, but I find that my productivity switches at times,

Some days I find that I can be more productive in the morning time and sometimes I do better around the afternoon, it’s actually a preferred time for me and where I feel my productivity works better, on rare occasions i’ll have some random energy that finds it’s way to me somehow and will feel inspired for a moment to use my productivity during the evening,

but those are rare times, I tend to have my productivity come through between the morning and the afternoon, but mostly around the afternoon. Some may say the mornings are better to be productive, but it’s all on where you feel most inspired and creative!! I won’t say i’m always super productive and I don’t always use my time wisely the way I should i’ll admit

but trying to focus on being more productive with my time is something, i’ve been doing my best with, trying to keep in mind and take notes on (both mentally and actually) speaking of I did a video (I know lame way to add that in…..believe me I always find it a little awkward at times doing that)

no, but I did do a video talking about Productivity and trying to prioritize our time a little better, what is expressed in the video i’ll just keep there so you can hear it for yourselves in case you’re curious, you can check it out here: Productivity & Prioritizing I feel there’s some stuff that I should probably expand on now that i’ve written this post…..if it’s still in my head i’ll do it, but for now i’ll just write it down as a later idea, I might not choose to have it be recorded in a video kind of way, but more in a way that i’ve kinda been going back in forth with as an idea for a bit now…..

Where would you guys say you’re more productive in the day!?

Creatively Planning Ways To Be Productive,Well At Least That's The Title Anyway!!

How’s everyone doing, I hope you all had a good weekend and found a way to enjoy yourself in someway, I know everything’s a little crazy right now and we’re having to find ways to not only be preoccupied, but also productive as well, for some it might be a little hard and for others it’s not a problem, it can be a little challenging when finding ways to be productive especially when you know you’re not much of a productive planner type,

but sometimes that can be a good thing, because you’re now having to learn how to plan things out productively, but at the same time, if you’re not use to doing that it can be a little hard, because you may not know where to start even and it might leave you feeling frustrated, anxious or stressed out because of it…..but instead of getting ourselves all worked up about how we can be productive, we should calmly take a breath and try to reframe from stressing because that’s not really going to help us be productive,

well I mean not in the best way anyway…….sometimes it helps to use our creativity to come up with ideas, I mean to be fair our best ideas come to us when we’re not even thinking about them, most of them show up out of nowhere actually!! I think if we’re thinking too hard on it,

That’s where our mind goes blank, sometimes you just have to let the mind wander and see what it comes up with, you might get something good and you might get something that’s not that great, but at least you’d be able to add it to a list or something, I think when it comes to being productive,

It’s not about figure out ideas, but allowing our creativity to express itself in order for us to get those ideas!! You know come to think of it, maybe that’s what planning is too!? Who says planning has to be a serious matter, I mean sometimes it is, but other times we could also get a little creative with it,

It doesn’t always have to look like a blank list, guess that’s why people have those bullet journals and decorate it how they see fit, they’re always so interesting and it’s nice to see what kind of personality they bring to those journals…..but i’m getting off track here, productivity and planning can be creative too, if we just allow it to do so, if that makes any sense……

Even if we come up with just one idea, at least you know it’s getting there and even if it doesn’t sound like the greatest idea, giving it a go anyway may just surprise you, if we just allow ourselves to have a little fun with it, the ideas tend to find themselves and everything else circles in.

My (Unofficial) Blogmas Experience…..

Update: I wrote this within another post of mine that I wrote yesterday, but I decided to make it into it’s own post, I added in some new things and removed some unwanted stuff out, should’ve done it yesterday, but I didn’t think, okay I did, but also didn’t, I hope you enjoy and happy holidays as well!!

So blogmas is now over, I think, was I only supposed to write up until Christmas!? That’s how it goes right!? not sure, either way I think I made it through blogmas, yesterday was the last day for it, not sure how I did or if I did it correctly, but hopefully I did decent, these blogging challenges are quite the mystery to me still, even when they are straight forward……

One thing i’ve gathered from trying this out is, well for one it’s not that easy, there was a fews times where I had nothing to bring to you guys that was interesting…..but I gotta say i’m happy and quite pleased knowing that I gave it a shot and made myself write something everyday.

Even if it was just one post a day and most of the time, I would express how I was blank out of ideas in a few of my posts, there were also somedays where I didn’t always have the energy to want to write, but that all being said it was an experience that was fun……..when I had something to write about, now it wasn’t too stressful, but there were times where I would start to get a little frustrated, not because of having to make a deadline or anything like that, it was more not always having inspiration.

As I once shared, I tend to write with random things in mind and go based off feeling or what I have in my head and if I have nothing that’s where the frustration starts to come in with blogmas, i’ve learned that you need to have some creativity and also a map of of ideas at times, that way when you do run into a dead end of an empty box of ideas, you have something to use as backup you know, you’re not always going to have topics come to you.

Sometimes you’ll need to have something in advance, at the same time however……I liked not always knowing what I was going to write and instead needing to improvise, now did always have the greatest improvisations!? Nooo, not really, but when I did, I enjoyed writing!!

It was nice being able to share something that maybe not many people talked about before, not sure if I was meant to stay within the holiday season of it, if I was, well then I don’t think I did it all that right, but who says you can’t share and write about non Christmas related topics, during blogmas, i’m sure you can write about anything really!?

Maybe i’ll just title this post my unofficial blogmas experience, if anyone ask, there was free trial, so I signed up just to see, not really grasping the whole concept of it…..i’m pretty sure you’re just meant to write up until Christmas right!? There weren’t any special memos I missed riiight!?

Overall, blogmas was alright, there were moments where I felt it was pretty good and other times where I probably could’ve been a bit more creative i’ll admit, but I kinda liked it, it was my first time trying it out, will I do this again!? I don’t know, maybe, I might have to keep a notepad by me just in case, while also maybe doing a bit of research on how to blogmas properly.

Let’s Talk: Blogmas….

So blogmas, where to start…..it is quite the keep up let’s just say!! This is my first time really trying this out, although I don’t feel i’m doing it properly, but writing a post everyday, I mean normally it’s hard to keep on top of blogging about things all the time, but once you sorta or really sign yourself up to make sure you blog and write something everyday up until a certain day……*sigh* goodness, it’s not as easy as it seems, i’ll tell you that,

Especially when you don’t always have interesting topic to talk about, a lot of the time I just come up with stuff and go based off feeling instead of really sitting down and planning out what my posts should be like and that’s probably why i’m finding Blogmas to be quite the task, right now it’s around 10pm and since going along with this monthly blog challenge,

I normally would start writing a little bit earlier, like in the afternoon around 12pm and for the past two days, both days being weekends, i’ve been wanting to simmer down and give it a bit and it’s not because I haven’t been wanting to write, I just haven’t been super inspired when it comes to topics, again I do most of my postings off of feeling and just choosing the first thing that comes into my mind, so if i’m not feeling the desire to write

I just won’t and that’s because I don’t want to just post for the heck of it and if I do happen to post a non interesting post, I also explain and say “hey I don’t really have anything interesting to talk about, but I hope this post is alright” I try not to write uninteresting posts, but sometimes you don’t always know what’s good and what’s not, I can’t really tell the difference if i’m being honest, but I still always try to make it somewhat interesting!!

That all being said, although Blogmas is a task and you find you have to keep at it, it’s not really been demanding, at least it hasn’t felt demanding, to me anyway, I think when it comes to challenges, in this case I get it can feel very stressful because you have to get something out at a certain time,

I think it helps to not stress with it, because if you do then you’ll feel on edge and start panicking about how you have to get a post out, but if you take your time with it and stay calm, you already know in your head, you have to write something, so it’ll automatically be natural for you to post.

It’s kinda like when you know you have to get up at a certain time and your body keeps that as a reminder and it makes sure you are up either before your alarm or when it rings, so it becomes a natural reaction, you don’t have to stress about it or worry or make yourself feel on edge,

You’ll just naturally know “okay better get writing” whether that’s early in the morning, mid afternoon or late in the evening as long as your post is ready before midnight or before you’re heading to bed then you’re good, back to blogmas though, it hasn’t been too stressful for me, even when i’m having days where i’m just everywhere let’s just say, even on those days, writing a post a day especially as a challenge, i’d say it’s been okay!!

Do I always have interesting things to write about!? NO, but for me, I find when even when I don’t have a good topic to share, having these chatting sessions and just talking or writing more like in this case, helps, it’s good to have posts where you just want to talk, we don’t always have to be interesting, we can just be human and talk about whatever it is thats in our heads or whatever you choose to write about, sometimes I want to talk about nothing, sometimes something and other times specifically!!

I think that’s okay and if you guys want to write about something or nothing, all that jazz, that’s okay too!! It’s why most of us created our blogs in the first place right!? We all just wanted a place to talk…….well that is all I have, I don’t know how long this post is, but I hope you enjoyed it for what it was, whatever that is exactly…….you all have a goodnight or good day wherever you are and i’ll send over a new post for you tomorrow!!

P.S. We’re at 11pm again…..

All The Love ❤ ❤
