2 Years Of Blogging (Part 3)

Alright so this will be the 3rd and final part to my 2 years of blogging, I did originally write something already, but I haven’t yet posted it and i’m not sure if i’m going to post it, so whatever this post turns out to be this will be the part 3 of it, now in case you’re wondering what the other one was about, I was pretty much just about not really having a theme for this blog, it was kinda what I had already written within the second part to this and it’s kinda why i’ve not shared it yet, I didn’t want it to sound like I was repeating myself, even though it felt like I was so yeah……

I’m not really sure where I want to start on this third part, I probably could’ve left it at 2 parts, but in the moment of writing the second part of this post, I did feel like I had more I wanted to say and I thought it would’ve been too long of a post to say whatever it was I was going to say within two parts and so that’s why I said i’d make a third part to this…….

This blog really doesn’t have a theme with it as i’ve already stated this is just a place of expression, be it serious or just because I really want to talk and share something here, I feel like i’ve gone from writing whatever to really thinking of what I want to bring to this blog and so I guess that’s why I have all these different sections/categories for things, I want to always keep it interesting, even though i’m not actually sure what part of my posts you guys enjoy, sometimes you really don’t know what people are going to be interested in and so I find that when you just go with something just to see if it’ll stick I guess you can say or not, it can really be of help……

To be honest I never actually know what I want to bring to this blog, I just go with what feels right in the moment even if I may not always feel 100% about those ideas……with blogging there have been posts that i’ve written to where I thought “I probably shouldn’t have wrote that” and there have been some where I wasn’t sure if I should’ve written them, but found that it ended up working someway……it’s weird you know!?

With blogging/writing really one thing I like about it is that you can express however you want, it doesn’t have to be specific, I feel it’s easy if you don’t think too hard about it, you can just go with what feels right to you in the moment and if you ever want to change it up later, you can, at first for me it was to say what I felt I couldn’t at the time, now, when I look at it, I think how should I express today!? Most of the time, it turns out to be random, but I still have moments where I want to express on something that’s a little more deeper and kinda serious…….if you’re thinking of starting a blog,

but you don’t know where to start, maybe you’re not sure what theme you want if your a theme person, just go with what feels good to you in the moment, it doesn’t need to be specific, sometimes you find what your theme is a little later, maybe you’re not meant to have theme and you’re just suppose to go with it……inspiration strikes when you least expect it so until then just go with the feeling and see what comes out from it, because you never know what could work, but I do have to thank this blog for giving me a place to express when I felt I couldn’t at one point, if i’m being honest,

Having this blog, really did help me to express more and it’s for that reason that I guess I still have it and why i’ll do my best to stick to it, even when there are days where I have no inspiration or just don’t feel like writing, i’ll still have it, because I know that eventually there’s going to be something that I will want to share and I know this will be the place i’ll come to, to do that…..but to wrap this post up I just want to say thank you to those who have been apart of my blogging experience and for those who have just arrived and if you were here, but aren’t anymore, thank you as well for taking that time and being here for the moments that you were here for.

For those still apart of my journey here, I hope I can continue to bring you guys posts that you find interesting and some that you may find help at times, however you have enjoyed, I hope you continue to enjoy and all that in between, I think that’s all I have to say, if you read all of this to the end thank you and if not, it’s fine, I just wanted to express my thank you’s and that, but I hope you all are having a nice day and are doing well,

If you haven’t read the first and second part to this post, you can find them both here, you all take care and i’ll see you in the next one:

2 Years Of Blogging (Part 1)

So this might be a few days late, but I did want to write something for my 2 year anniversary of starting this blog……not really sure what i’m going to write, you may not even see this until a little later, but I just wanted to get at least some of my thoughts down just so I have at least an idea of it.

To start, in case some of you are wondering, this past Saturday (July 11th) made two years since I went and created this blog, as well as something else, it was a bit of an event kind of day, but nonetheless, for the most part it was the anniversary of my blog…..now I knew the anniversary was coming up and leading up to it, I was trying to think of what I could talk about or what kind of things I wanted to share on that day……as you can tell,

I didn’t end up really sharing much the day of the anniversary, I ended up doing some other stuff and by the time I finished, I didn’t have time to share on anything and to be honest……I didn’t really know what I wanted to share or talk about, motivation, as well as inspiration has been a little…..

Dimmed these days……that being said, even though I didn’t really have much planned for my 2 year anniversary of the blog……I still wanted to try and do something for it, even if it was just me saying “It’s been 2 years can you believe it!?” on the note…..it’s kinda a little surprising that i’ve had this for that long and that i’m still using it actually……it’s slightly like “wow” but also not at the same time, I can’t really explain it…..still though also you may have noticed, I wrote part 1 to this post, Reason being!?

I feel like there’s more I want to say and I don’t know if i’ll be able to put it all in this post, again i’m not quite sure what those things are just yet, I just feel I want to express some other stuff if that makes sense!? Now I know this post isn’t really all that long, but I know that if I go and write whatever it is I feel I want to express on, it’ll start to become quite lengthy and so i’d rather have it be not that short, but not that long either sort of a post and have it be a part 1 than continue on and have it be a little too much to read.

To be fair when I get to the second part to this and I will, i’m not really sure what it’s going to be about, but I want to make sure that I get my thoughts out in the best way possible which is why i’m going to take my time with it a little so that way whatever what’s to come out, will and hopefully it’ll make sense in the process, who knows that might end up being the longer post for all I know, hopefully not, but if it is it was already kinda stated beforehand, I do my best to keep it semi short and not have it ramble on, but for now…..i’ll leave you with part 1 of 2 years of blogging!!

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!?

What Day Of The Week Was It Written!?

Okay so a lot of you might be confused to what this is about looking at the title here, there’s also a chance you might just be curious about the title, I don’t know, but what I will tell you is that, this was literally something that just came to mind a moment ago…..now we all listen to music, some of us may have the same taste on the kind we listen to, some a little more different or maybe in between somewhere, nonetheless though we all enjoy it in some way or form……okay so it’s going to probably get a little weird, but also possibly interesting……maybe……I don’t know, maybe it’s just me

Like I said this is something that just randomly came to mind, i’m going to ask a question and you tell if you want, if you sometimes wonder this….have you ever listened to a song and thought “I wonder what day of the week this song was written on!?” Now I don’t think about this all the time, today is literally the first time that thought came to mind!! I mean it’s quite interesting if you think about it, we all know when an album of an artist released (do let me know if that made sense, because to me it doesn’t feel like it does, but I hope you at least know what I mean there)

In case it got a little confusing, we know when an artist released their album, because it’s first announced when they’ll be releasing it, but also there’s an anniversary for that album so if you we don’t know, we learn later, but how come we never really think of the day a song was written!?

Is that a weird thought to have!? Is that not as important compared to when an album is said to come out!? I mean yeah okay it’s a small thing, but I believe that it can also be a significant thing too, I mean we hear a song and depending on whether we like it or not, it’s still pretty fascinating to think about and possibly discover those little details even if they aren’t as important, sometimes it’s the minor details that unveil the magic if you will that had the song come to life in the first place, don’t you think!?

Now i’m not saying we need to know every detail to it, just certain aspects, like what part of that said day was it being created, was it early in the morning as they were having breakfast or taking a walk somewhere, maybe during the afternoon hanging out in a garden…….maybe it was later in the evening or a little late at night just as they were about to go to sleep…….

I know some artists have even woken up in the middle of the night, because they had a dream and a song played from there and they did not want to forget it most likely……which is a pretty awesome thing to discover….maybe it’s not that big of deal and not many people care for that kind of thing, but seeing as i’m thinking about it…….I feel it to be important even if it is a small little detail……sometimes those are the best kind……at least to me it is……

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!?

Creators Spotlight: The Flood, Midnight Mind & Paraphernalia (Updated)

Update: Okay so relooking at this, I felt I should change it, so for those reading it how it is now, just know that it won’t be like this later, some things might stay in, but the rest i’m going to try and change around…….

I got to read 3 great posts, by three great writers the other day and I just wanted to write a post about it, it was originally going to be a video that I wanted to do, but I later decided that writing on it would be better, I thought what they did was creative and I thought all of their posts were incredible and I wanted to share it in someway and I hope that’s okay

Just to give you a quick idea on what their post is about, without spoiling anything, they took a song lyric from one of their favorite artist and wrote a story with it, it was very cool, amazing and pretty creative too, very creative actually, they’re are a lot blog posts that i’ve read, but reading theirs, well let’s just say there aren’t much words I can say to describe them, but their way of writing and expression is something truly special!!

I can’t really express what i’m trying to say right now, but it’s good, when you read their posts, you’ll know what I mean right away, but i’m telling they really are amazing writers, but don’t take it from me, read their posts and have a look for yourselves, I think you’ll find it to be really interesting, I sure did!! You can check them and their blogs out here:

The Flood: A Shadow Tilts It’s Head At Me (Sarah’s Post)

Midnight Mind: Spirits In The Dark Are Waiting (Jul’s Post)

Paraphernalia: I Will Let The Wind Go Quietly (Clara’s post)

Just a heads up though when you’re reading, the posts that i’ve shared are hosted ones between the three of them, they did a collaboration post, which means they’ve gone and hosted each others post on their blogs so you’ll be reading them in a different way, but don’t worry they’ve been nice to share the links on their blogs to each others post so you can easily access them once you’re finished reading the one you’ve read, but do go over and share some love and and support toward Sarah, Clara and Jul’s blogs,

I’m pretty sure they’d appreciate it and i’m sure it’d mean a lot to them too, they’re all talented and great writers and I think they deserve for their blogs to be read so if you can and are interested do go check them out!!

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.

Imagine This…..

You’re the age you are, but one morning you wake up in a completely different environment and learn that you have this completely different life, what would you do!? If you were to ask me, I would probably freak out, I mean what else would you do, you’re not going to be calm, I mean you’re waking up different to when you fell asleep, how else would you react!?

I know you’re probably confused to what i’m talking about, well don’t worry i’ll explain, i’m watching one of my favorite movies right now, I don’t know if any of you know it or have ever watched it before, it’s called 13 Going on 30, I don’t really know what it is about this movie, but anytime it comes on I always want to watch it, now I don’t watch it every single time it comes on, but it’s one of my favorite ones to watch if I know it’s on.

Okay so I didn’t really know what to write about earlier today, like at all, I was kinda stressing about it too, but I thought if I gave it a bit, i’d come up with something, I then started to watch this movie and kinda had the idea to write this post, it might not be a long one, but it could be something to think about.

You wake up one day to a life that is unfamiliar, but you’re the only person that feels that and you go around asking everyone what’s going on, but they’re acting as though everything’s fine and normal and like they’ve known you for years, yet you don’t really know them all that much and if you do, it’s from forever ago…..it’s an odd thing to think about…….

However it’s also pretty interesting as well….I wouldn’t know what to do if that happened, i’d ask so many questions, but probably wouldn’t get any answers from asking them, it’d be a weird few days if that happened.

I love that movie though, it always gets me every time and by that I mean my emotions go everywhere, I get excited, happy and sad at the same time, it’s such a good movie and the message and meaning to it, is also pretty good, but I think that’s all I have for you guys, I know this wasn’t a lot, sorry about that, I hope you still like this post though.

If you did wake up one morning to a whole new life that is yours, but it’s an unfamiliar one, would you live it as if it was normal or would you live it a different way!? How would you react knowing you’re not where you were, from when you fell asleep!?

All The Love ❀ ❀

Green like the forest, blue like the sea and when it comes to the other colors, just throw them all on a canvas and see if you can find something in it that speaks to you, see if you’re able to see something else within all that paint. If you can, tell me what you see or if it’s a personal thing just tell yourself what you see instead, how does it make you feel, what does that hidden image mean to you!? Try and connect with it if you can………….

You might be wondering why I just wrote all of that, well i’m trying something different, instead of thinking about what exactly to write about, i’m just having it to where, words are just being added as I go along, it may not make sense, but what’s the harm in just writing a few random words, or just wanting to see what comes out of you and why it’s coming out of you!?

Just like painters sometimes just throw paint on a canvas to see what comes out of it, i’m just trying to throw random words together to see what it comes out to be later………sure I may look at this and be like “what the heck is this, this doesn’t make any sense!?” but at least it’ll be something to read back and go “oh remember when I wrote this, come to think of it……..

Why did I write this!?” the best part about that is, I can go and look back and have it where I try and remember what mood I was in when I decided to write this weird post or go back and try and figure out if whether there was some kind of meaning behind it somehow……….it may not be, but who knows maybe if I read it back, i’ll have a different kind of interpretation for it……..it’s like when a painter creates a new painting, in the moment as they’re painting it, they don’t really know what it is their exactly painting…..

They just go based off a mood they’re feeling or are inspired by something……..it’s not until their finished with that painting to where they then come up with some kind of interpretation for it. Sometimes that interpretation may change over time to them, depending on whether they still feel the same about it or if they may see it differently……….

It’s all in the eyes of the artist and how they feel on it, so when it comes to this post, right now, i’m not really sure what my meaning for it is, I just know I felt like writing it, now when I read it back in second, whatever my interpretation for it is after, that’ll be what the meaning of it is, now if I ever decide to read this back later however, i’ll probably feel the same about it ooor i’ll change my mind and it’ll have a whole new meaning to it, i’ll let you know if I ever return to this post in an update………..

Music Album Review: Paramore’s After Laughter Album (Dec 19, 2018)

Originally Written Dec 17

Hey there everyone, okay so i’m not sure how long this is gonna be, it might be very long, but it might not be at the same time, we’ll just see as we go along. I hope you guys are all doing well, today I wanted to discuss and review an album, i’ve never reviewed an album before, only certain songs, but I thought i’d give it a try and just see how I do with it, today we’re gonna be discussing Paramore and their latest album After Laughter. Now for those who don’t know Paramore well they’re a band of course, their genre of music goes from: Alternative rock, Pop punk, Pop rock ect….

Obviously when you’re a band or an artist, you tend to want to change your sound if you’re feeling you want to mix it up a bit, instead of always sticking to the same one, now before we talk Paramore’s latest album, I just want to kinda do a little backstory on them just so you can learn more about them, so without further ado, let’s talk a bit about Paramore: Paramore’s first debut album was All We Know Is Falling which came out back in 2005 and featured songs like Pressure, Emergency and Conspiracy, now i’ve heard Pressure and I believe i’ve heard Emergency not sure on Conspiracy, but at the same time I feel I might’ve heard it once or something i’m not sure.

Their 2nd album Riot! came out in 2007 one of the famous songs from that album is the good ole’ classic Misery Business, as well as other songs like CrushCrushCrush, That’s What You Get and one of my favorites When It Rains. Now even though Paramore had made two albums and all these lovely songs, it wasn’t until their breakout hit Decode to where they started to become well known and very popular. Decode featured on a popular hit movie that i’m sure all of you are aware of and if you’re not then don’t worry it’s okay, you’re not really missing much in my opinion, but the song appeared and was one of the featured tracks off the famous movie Twilight.

Everyone (mainly teen girls) loved Twilight, if you haven’t heard of it again don’t worry about it, but if you have, you know what i’m talking about here, there was even teams made from that movie, not kidding!! Twilight came out in 2008, it’s about this sparkling vampire guy named Edward, a teen girl, I think her name is Bella and a werwolf name Jacob, there’s more to the movie of course, but i’m not gonna go into it because this is about Paramore, I just thought since I brought up Twilight, might as well give you a brief description on it.

As I said before Decode was one of the featured songs off there and was actually very popular too, I remember coming across that song because the music video was on and also because it was one of those songs that was just everywhere, no matter where you went, you would be sure to hear that song. I can’t remember exactly, but I believe I wasn’t too fond of the song at first and i’ll be honest I think I might’ve judged it quickly because of the fact that I didn’t like Twilight (still don’t really like Twilight) I do however like the song decode now though. Decode also appeared on Paramore’s 3rd album I believe, Brand New Eyes, along with the songs Ignorance, Playing God and Brick By Boring Brick making it’s debut in 2009. They have more albums, but those are just a few of them that I wanted to talk about, but let’s get on to their new/latest album After Laughter and talk about the songs.

These are the songs off the album with small descriptions to them, all the songs are about Hayley Williams and her bands personal life:

1. Hard Times– Is pretty self explanatory, it’s all on Hard times and how even though we have them we don’t ever hit rock bottom (that’s an actual line in the song)

2. Rose-Colored Boy– This one is a little hard, but I think it has to do with someone who’s always so optimistic, while everyone else isn’t.

3. Told You So– This ones all about having those people who love to look for and call you out on your mistakes and love the whole Told you so line that Hayley sings about in the song.

4. Forgiveness– Is on the personal side of town, Hayley sings about not being able to forgive someone that hurt her really badly.

5. Fake Happy– Is a very clear song about pretending you’re happy when you’re not, but also knowing that you’re not the only one feeling that way.

6. 26– Is about keeping hold of what’s left of your hope and happiness the older you get, so this is one of her reflective songs.

7. Pool– Is metaphoric dark love song, you’ll have to hear it to understand it

8. Grudges– Pretty self explanatory, it’s all about letting go of grudges that we hold against someone.

9. Caught In The Middle-Is what I would probably say to be a reflection songs on Hayley early days in Paramore as well as her life in general.

10. Idle Worship-Is a song to all of her fans where she expresses that she shouldn’t be looked at as an idol.

11. No Friend– Is a letter she wrote to her fans, but it’s not sung, it’s spoken and she doesn’t speak the words, but a friend of hers does and it’s pretty interesting, different, but I like it.

12. Tell Me Now– Is…….i’m actually gonna let this one speak for itself, so give it a listen if you’re curious.

Now a lot of people complain about Paramore’s new sound and everything, but in all honesty I like their new sound, it’s different, but good different in my opinion. I think what it is that people don’t like about Paramore sound is the fact that’s it’s all poppy sounding now and I get having a favorite artist or band and knowing them from when they first started and being so used to the music they use to make, we all would love to have our favorites stay with the same thing, but at the same time if they feel they need to grow and want to experiment with other sounds then who are we to say they can’t.

These artists and bands make music not for us mainly, they write their songs from personal experiences that they share with us and maybe it’s different to how they use to do it, but if they decide they want a different sound then they have every right to change it up, I mean it is their music, we aren’t in any position to demand they stick with the new sound or old sound at all. If we really love that said band or artist we will grow with them and their music without hesitation, plus I always feel that sometimes it’s good to change it up as well as giving things a chance before judging it right off the bat……..I like their new sound, but that’s because I like Paramore and again if they felt in their hearts they needed to change something with their music then you gotta trust and embrace them on their sound, even if you may not like it.

Also if you think that these songs are just pop songs really listen to the lyrics, just because a song is upbeat doesn’t mean that the lyrics don’t have a deeper meaning to them, this whole album is upbeat with the exception of 26, Tell Me Now & Forgiveness (theses are the songs I consider to be not so poppy, but still great songs) The lyrics hidden behind the poppy dance music are actually very deep and dark when you really listen to it.

It’s all about reading between the lines, with this album and I love it, i’ve become very obsessed with this album and I just heard it the other day, some of my favorites are: Fake Happy, 26, Hard Times, Tell Me Now, Rose Colored Boy & Caught In The Middle, these are the songs i’m constantly playing over and over, although I love the whole album in general, it’s great, but Paramore has always been great, even with the sound change they’re still an awesome band, but that’s just my opinion.

Let me know your thoughts on After Laughter, have you heard it and if so what are your favorite tracks from it!?
