Octember Weekend….Just Go With It!

Good Evening! Hope you’re all doing well! We’ve come to the end of the week which also means we’ve just finished the first week of November and are headed towards the weekend and will be getting ready for the 2nd week ahead! I’ll admit it’s still a little shocking that we’re in November, I mean the last days of October we’re literally well last weekend, hope you all had a good Halloween by the way if you celebrated it at! I didn’t really do much on Halloween, just stayed in…..to be fair you don’t really do much other than going door to door asking random people for free candy…..it’s pretty much all there is to the holiday if you really think about it, at least the tradition of it anyway!

However if you’re the kind to see it more than just that and you celebrate the deeper spiritual side of it than it might mean something more to you and if so it’s a different story ain’t it!? That being said, I know that it’s not always about the candy with Halloween, most people enjoy it for the decorations, costumes, the feel of it even, I guess it all depends how you choose to celebrate it really, for kids they probably love it for the candy mainly, but also the costumes…..I mean what kid doesn’t like to dress up, better yet what kids doesn’t like getting a whole load of candy!? That’d be the real question,

If you were to create a poll on what everyone’s favorite thing about the spooky season is well then you’d be in for a load of many different answers, wouldn’t you!? We all know Halloween has a bigger story to it, beside the candy, costumes, decorations all that jazz, but most of us don’t tend to focus on the actual reason of Halloween just the fun stuff you can do with it, but yeah I don’t really know why I’m going on about Halloween during November, I mean it was last weekend, why is October coming in to head, I’m not sure…..guess there was a few things that I wanted to say with it!

Into November though….what can we say about it, well we were on Monday and now we’re on Friday which will tell you how quick this week went by, the first of November had a bit of both pretty alright and not alright at least for me, the rest of the days wasn’t so bad…..I mean one good thing is that we got the new Animal Crossing update, although it’s release happened a day earlier than expected, well two days early if you want to get technical, I mean we were meant to be getting it today on the 5th of November at least it was announced to be released on the 5th, however Nintendo had other plans in mind and had the thought of “You know what would be grand, if we just dropped the update two days early, that would surely catch everyone off guard and have them losing their minds”

Which they were right about about I didn’t learn of it until yesterday, but once I updated my game, I barely knew what to do with myself when experiencing all the new things we had gotten…..it was quite the chaotic, but not the chaotic day in the Animal Crossing world, although we had the update come to us early, we did have something to unbox for the 5th of Nov that being the second installment of Happy Home Designer off the 3DS, but the newer version of course that is Happy Home Paradise, which I plan on getting, just not sure when exactly I want to get it, but it’s in the wish list!

So that’s kind of what November has brought so far….there’s been a few other things as well, but for the most part, this week has been okay, sure there’s been some slight changes with it, but it was still an okay week I feel! We arrive to another weekend and then on to another week, but before we get to that second week, for now let’s just enjoy the weekend as it comes, hopefully it’s not been too bad of a week for you guys, if it was a bit stressful or was a bit rough starting, I hope you’re able to enjoy a nice chillax weekend with all your favorite things waiting for you, but if it was a good week for you, well I still wish you all a well deserved chillax weekend as well!

P.S.

I recently uploaded a new Podcast episode, it’s a bit of a short one compared to the other ones, but if you guys are interested it’s up if you want to check it out!

The 1st Of November….(Short Post)

Good Evening! Hope everyone has been doing alright, hard to believe that we’re already in the month of November, I hope those who celebrated Halloween enjoyed themselves yesterday and got a good amount of candy at that! I’m not really sure how to describe the start of the month, I guess you can say it’s been….all over the place, it’s hasn’t quite gotten it’s feet on the ground entirely just yet, but you can tell it’s trying despite the stress and non stress…it’s just been pretty weird is what I mean, however it did just start sooo….it’s a little too soon to talk fully about it!

It might be a lot different for you guys though, maybe some of you are trying to sort out things and get yourself going in a way, some might be doing a bit of self reflection, maybe November has got you in all sort of ways, it’s got me feeling different things that’s for sure….that being said, again November just started, we still got time to turn it around somehow! I thought I at least had an idea to what November was going to be like, but now I’m having to sit and think of what I want it to be like, although that was probably going to be something I thought about anyway regardless, with every new month, you tend to think about what could come from it!

November is no exception to that, I have to think up some new ideas that I would like to bring for this month, with October I tried to stick with the themes I had for it, but I will admit that I didn’t really do everything I had in mind for it, so with November I’m hoping that I can come up with new things and see what they turn into, all while trying to keep my cool in all of it as well! I guess I just need to feel out this month and see what works with it….try and find a good footing to it!

Yeah, I don’t really know what else to say….so I guess this post is meant to be a short one for now, I hope that you all have had a good start to November and that it continues to be all that you hoped for and some that is still yet to be unknown and unexpected, but good as well!

All The Love ❤ ❤

It’s A New Dawn, New Day, New Month! Well…..Almost…..

Anyone else feeling exhausted!? This month is nearly over and I can’t tell you how tired I am, I’ve not been able to really sleep properly for the past few days, I just started getting a little bit of sleep, not fully, but somewhat! I don’t know if it’s just me that’s been feeling that way though….all I know is I’m ready for a nice chill break! Last week….let’s not talk about it actually….weekend kind of similar, but it was fine! We’ve arrived half way through this week with it being Wednesday and we’re on the last few days of October with Halloween being this Sunday talk about crazy yeah!?

We’re coming to November next week, hard to believe, but it’s true! I want to say that I’m looking forward to the arrival of November, I mean I am, but I’m also just very nervous about it….I have this trip planned for next week and I just don’t know how to feel about it, really….I want to be excited about it, but I don’t know if I should approach it with caution or if I should just embrace it regardless to how I’ve been feeling lately!? November is usually one of my favorite months during the fall season, it’s the first time I’m not sure how to feel about it…..although I don’t think I’ve ever really thought about it before either to be honest!?

I never really understood why that is!? Why it’s one my favorites is what I mean….I’ve just always been drawn to it, like if I had to pick a new month to switch my birthday on, it would be November! Now I’m not saying I don’t like May….I’m glad that I was born during the Spring time, May is actually one of my favorite months and no it has nothing to do with that fact that I was born during that month, I just always liked May, plus I always felt it made for a nice name!

I’m just saying there’s just something about November that I’ve always liked, I guess cause it’s one of the Autumn months and Autumn is my second favorite season, Spring being my main favorite, again nothing to do with my birthday! There’s so much to this season….fall is the season of change, sometimes good and sometimes not always…..but still we have no choice, but to just allow it even when we may not want to allow it….I mean you can’t change a season, the only way the weather can change is if it changes itself! Sounds similar to how us humans change huh!? Some times it comes naturally while other days it may be a little forced!

One thing I’ve learned though is how important change is, we all know change is inevitable, there are things that happen that we may not want to happen and it can leave us confused, as well as unsure about a lot of things! One minute things are good and one minute you feel it shift and you don’t know how to feel about it when that does happen, what I’m saying is Change is frustrating ha! I used to strongly dislike change, but later down the line, I started to be okay with it, because I knew that it was needed in order to grow and be who you felt yourself transforming into, sometimes it hard though and you don’t always know the ways you’re changing, you just know that things are different with it!

You feel different, the way you used to see things are different and you tend to notice that what once was….is no longer the same, at least what it used to be anyway and not a lot of people like that, nor can they handle it…..but as much as you may want it to be, not everything is going to be in our control! You have to let people do what they feel they need to do, you have to allow them to grow and figure out what it is they want for themselves, not what you want it to be! Not a lot of people get that though….but it’s very important that we do get that and understand it as well….

It may leave us not feeling the greatest, but when you deeply care and love someone, all you truly want is just for them to be happy and so it takes a lot of courage and maturity to say “Hey if this is what you want, I support you” You always want people to be the best they can be for themselves even if they stumble a bit, it all comes down to just letting them know that you’re always going to be there, no matter what their choices are or the mistakes they make along the way, that regardless you’re going to love them anyway! We’re always so quick to assume or judge and although it’s not how we may want it to go, it’s how life is in reality and that’s coming from someone that continues to learn that….but that has nothing to do with November, it’s just what I’ve been feeling this season to, well feel like!

I have hopes for November though and faith, I need something to hold on to and those two things have always been with me since I was old enough to remember, I’m just hoping for something good to come from and I’m hoping that thing to be what I truly believe in and have always believed in….

I took this one when I went Pumpkin picking….

Let’s Talk: Monster House (Thoughts)

Good Afternoon! I hope you guys are having a good start to your week, it’s another Manic Monday as The Bangles would say, if you know that song then you’re a cool person and you were either born in the era that it came out or you’re just someone that has good taste in music, I wasn’t born in the era that this song released, I just listen to a lot of old music and music in general, but it’s good a song if you haven’t heard it!

So let’s get to talking about some movies, shall we!? As you all probably know Halloween is this upcoming weekend like we’re literally at the end of the month, can someone say “what the heck!?” because I want to….in all fairness this month has felt like a whole chore to get through, I don’t know if that’s just how I feel it to be, but it’s been on hell of a month and the fact that it’s just coming to an end is saying so much…..then again it might’ve been a different experience for anyone reading this right now so It’s probably just me at this point that has felt that! Also I might’ve said this a few times before, but I have been trying to keep with a theme for this month which is having anything I write be Halloween based, not including personal thoughts I want of share of course, but in a sense of movies, music, you know things like that!

However not everything I choose to talk about will be definite Halloween, but certain things that remind me of it, if that makes sense!? Today’s movie choice that I would like to give my thoughts on is the 2006 movie that really should have been released during this time or at least around the fall season, I mean it literally screams I WAS INTENDED TO BE A HALLOWEEN MOVIE, BUT I’M TECHNICALLY NOT A HALLOWEEN MOVIE! Something along those lines, if you couldn’t already tell from the title, we’re going to be talking about Monster House…..now to be fair, I have not watched this movie in quite some time, last time I revisited this one was about…maybe 3 years ago!? After that I haven’t really seen the movie….but it’s one of the movies that whenever this season rolls around I think about it!

Don’t ask me why, but it comes to my mind…..how many people remember this movie, I’m curious to know because I don’t feel like a lot of people talk about this one enough, nor do they even consider it as a Halloween movie at that, I mean if you really look at it, this movie did came out in the Summer….not kidding, July 21st to be exact, why!? I wish I knew, I mean it would have made a good start of the fall season movie, even if it wasn’t necessarily for October, September would have been fine for this movie to come out, but no they said July is a good month for this Halloween movie to release!

I will never understand how there’s some movies that literally tell you it’s for a specific theme, but come out on very odd months!? I thought I’d set the record straight and put this one where it’s meant to be and that’s with all the other Halloween non Halloween movie section! Let’s get into Monster House though, because it at least deserves that much…..again I’ve not watched this movie for a few years now, but I do remember always enjoy it when I would watch it! The art style of it is a bit weird yes, but that’s the whole aesthetic of it, it’s supposed to me weird! The movie from what I can remember was pretty darn creepy, not going to lie! Seriously imagine being eaten by your own house….

Scratch that your creepy neighbors house at that! Like your just minding your own business taking a walk and next thing you know you’ve been swallowed by your neighbors house, that happens to be haunted by his late wife who wasn’t really treated nicely when she was living! The only person to really care about her was her husband and when she passed….her spirit took over the house and she’d go after anyone that tried going near it! Hence why Mr. Nebbercracker (I think that was his name anyway) always screamed at kids and anyone not to go near his lawn, everyone thought he was a mean old grumpy face of an old man, but really was just trying to keep everyone from getting eaten by his house of a wife!

Plus he never really had anyone going out there way to really get to know him, but then again he never let anyone in anyway, because he was afraid and due to everyone constantly torturing him and his home so there’s that! It took 3 kids to be curious to why Nebbercracker doesn’t let anyone near his house to become curious and explore it anyway after being told not to go near it…..but you know kids, they do it anyway! You know what they say curiosity killed that cat, I’m not really sure why people say that, I mean that doesn’t always happen!? Who came up with that anyway?

Anyway….I can’t really go into full detail of the movie, although I do feel like I can remember the movie a good amount, but Monster House was quite the spooky movie, but I feel it’s both underrated and a really good movie as well, if these 3 kids didn’t allow their curiosity to wander, they would’ve never learned about Nebbercracker’s backstory and helped him get out of his own home that he felt trapped in and released all that fear he was holding himself in, I feel like this movie had a very interesting story to it and that the message that they tried to have come across was good as well!

It’s just a shame that not many people talk about it anymore or at least as much because I feel it to be a hidden gem of a movie, had it been released during the fall or around the Halloween season, I think it would’ve gotten more recognition, but I’m sure there’s some people out there that remember it and either really like it, didn’t like it or maybe they just thought it was okay! Everyone’s got different views which is fine, I personally really enjoy this movie, even though I haven’t watched it in quite some time, but that being said it’s always one that crosses my mind during this season because I just don’t understand why it wouldn’t, I guess everyone’s different!

P.S. This was written yesterday, but I ended up finishing today!

October Stress…

Happy Weekend Everyone! I hope that your day is going okay so far! I must say I’m a bit happy that this week is done and that we’ve entered the weekend….it’s been a long stressful anxious week and it’s not really been the greatest! If I’m being honest I’m still feeling quite anxious and a little overwhelmed, I thought it would go away, but no, it’s still there ha! It’s just been a really shit week and I don’t normally swear, but it’s how I feel, but I’m doing by best to try and make the most out of these days and keep positive in the best way I’m able to….key word trying….!

I normally don’t like talking about the way I’m feeling, but I don’t know how else to handle these emotions that have just come out of nowhere for me, since yesterday all I’ve been wanting to do is cry, my Anxiety has been up the wall and the sucky part is I really don’t know why…..scratch that there’s a few reasons, but I choose not to share upon them, but other than part of the reason, the other parts I really don’t know….all I know is I’ve just been feeling super stressed out this week and I’m trying to keep my emotions under control, but it’s becoming very hard….I don’t know if maybe sharing these feelings this way will help me to calm down a bit, I’m hoping it does, maybe that’s what I need a good expression session!

October has been very odd, it started off okay and not that bad, except for a couple of things and now it just feels like everything is going all over the place, so much is happening and I guess it’s happening super quickly and that’s why I’m feeling overwhelmed by it all, I’m not used to everything going by super quickly, I thought I was handling it pretty well and maybe I was, but all the craziness and just everything has started catching up to me, but I’m trying to stay calm! I’m trying not to lose control of it, because I know that if I do, it’s just going to get worst and I don’t want that to happen!

So I’m trying to keep my feet planted even if I do get pushed back a bit…I know I got to keep them planted and keep going, it’s the only way things will get better….I got a trip coming up in literally a week now and although I feel excited about it, I’m also very nervous and as much as I don’t want to be nervous I am…..I guess part of me is just hoping that it all goes well, it’s a long of way as I’ll be going to visit my partner finally being able to see him after a very long while…..not only that, but I’ll be seeing something completely new…..which is a bit scary, I mean anything new is quite scary really, but I’m excited because at least I’ll be able to see him….it doesn’t mean I’m not still nervous though! There’s just so much going on in my head and they’re all just combining together to the point where it’s just an overwhelming feeling and it’s the only feeling that I can seem focus on at the moment!

I’m just tired, but I’m still going to do my best to push through it as best as I can, I’m just hoping that the upcoming week is better than this past week and that there’s at least a good amount of fresh air to be inhaled, but for the time being I feel I just need to hold my breath or catch my breath even, before heading into the next few days coming…..I really hope that you guys are having a much better day and weekend…..it’s been quite the month and we’re just getting ready to wrap it all up, one thing I will say is…I do feel slightly better, not quite, but a bit, but hey I’ll take it and I’ll keep trying to make the most of these next few days, you guys take care!

By the way my latest podcast episode is up, if you guys want to check it out, you have a good rest of the day!

Animal Crossing Direct Thoughts (Part 1) Ep. 44 Daydreamer's Podcast

As you can see this is just part 1, last Friday was quite the surprise with Nintendo announcing what we'll be getting on the update next month and I'm just so excited and cannot wait for it all!!

Now Playing: Lady Leshurr (Introduction)

Good Afternoon Everyone! Hope that you all are having a very good day today! We’re getting closer to the end of the week, one more day before we reach the weekend, which also means we’re nearing Halloween! I’m not really sure if I’m super excited for Halloween, but I’m not seeming to mind it this year, normally I just wait for it to bypass, but this year is different! I’ve been feeling pretty inspired this season and so I feel that could be the reason that I’ve been okay with October this year! Now I feel like I might’ve already said this, but I’ll say it again for anyone that may be new or just haven’t heard me say it before….now like I just stated this month I’ve been feeling oddly inspired and with October being the month that we’re in, I’ve been trying to attempt to theme out my blog posts as well as my podcast episodes!

So far I feel I’ve done more blog posts then podcast episodes when it comes to things that remind me of Halloween! I’ll get back to podcasting soon and see if I’ll be able to throw in a few ideas involving Halloween themed topics before the month ends officially, for now I want to talk about a specific artist that is a little out of comfort for me, although I do listen to her often, to explain the kind of music that she does is a little hard to do, especially since she’s from a whole other country, but I will give it a try and see if I’d be able to properly explain everything in the best way I know how!

I actually did record an episode about this artist recently, but I didn’t quite like the way it came out, I was very nervous and also didn’t feel like I did it justice to how I wanted it to come out, so I most liking will be redoing that episode probably tomorrow for Saturday and see if I can get it to come out better! I want to be able to present it in the best way that I’m able to, in my own words of course, because that’s how good I feel she is, so stay tune for that one!

This post is going to be a bit of an introduction kind of post, I don’t know how well it will be, but I shall do my best with it and hope that it goes well….so today I would like to introduce you all to Lady Leshurr, if you’re not quite familiar with her, which I feel most people won’t be at least those who are from the US mainly….although there might be some out there who are from the US that have come across her and listen to her like I do, if so then you’ll know who I’m talking about! For the new people though…..Lady Leshurr is a UK Grime artist, so an MC rapper, she also sings too, but she’s mostly known for the way she freestyles on the mic, It’s the best way I can explain it.

Now if you’re asking what is Grime!? That’s a whole other thing, but to specify a little on it to how I can describe it….Grime music is pretty much just like our rap music, but better! At least I think it to be better anyway, this coming from someone who normally doesn’t choose rap as her go to kind of music, I’m sure I’ve already said this, but I’m not actually that big of a fan of rap, however I do listen to it at times, it just depends on the artist really for me! Although I have specific music genre’s that I like, I’m pretty open minded to music so I’ll listen to anything as long as it’s good and as long as I feel something with it…back to Lady Lesh though….like I said she is an amazing female Grime artist, I can’t even begin to express how great she is!

I’ve been listening to her for quite some time now and let me tell you she’s just something else!! Her style in the way she does music is on a whole other level and to explain it to you guys, I feel like I wouldn’t be able to do it properly! When it comes to Grime music I’ll be the first to say that I’m inexperience I’ll be honest, even though I’ve heard a few artists within the Grime scene, I’m the wrong person to sit here and try and give you my in depth thoughts of it…..all I can say is with Grime you get a whole different experience, but it’s so worth it! and with Lady Leshurr, you definitely get an experience!

She’s the kind of artist that will always leave you blown away! The way she is when it comes to her music, it’s like with her, it’s not always serious, but it is serious at the same time….it’s hard to explain so I don’t know if I’m makes sense here, but it’s the truth! I’ve never heard anyone like her before, she’s weird in the best way possible and I love that about her, I think that’s why she’s one of my favorite artists to listen to, because she’s got such a uniqueness to her that you can’t ignore and if you try to ignore her, she’s the kind of person that she’ll make sure you notice her to where you won’t be able to ignore her again, I love it!

Like I said she’s on a whole other level…..

One thing you’ll notice with her is when you hear her songs, most of the time she’s just joking, however there may be some hidden truths within them I won’t lie to you, sometimes it’s hard to differentiate, but they’re not always meant to be taken seriously, it’s just Lady Leshurr, being Lady Leshurr! Now that being said that doesn’t mean that she won’t tell you how it it, if she’s got to tell you straight trust and believe she will and when she does you won’t be able to say much about it, that’s how good she is and that’s the other reason why I prefer Grime music over our kind of rap, because they all are like that at least some of the artists that I’ve listened to from the Grime scene so far!

They will be extremely real with you and will speak the truth always…..it’s not just with their songs, It’s what they stand for and who they are and when it comes to music that’s what I like! I like listening to music that speaks something real, music that has meaning where you feel it….I don’t know how else to explain it, but I’ve grown to really enjoy and embrace what Grime music is, I respect what it is they do!

When it comes to Lady Leshurr, I’ve grown to really appreciate what she does and how she does it, I’ve become a really big fan of hers….I really feel her to be such an amazing artist! I do need to listen to more of her stuff, I’ve only really listened to a few of her Queen Speeches (my favorite’s being 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7) as well as her song Black Panther, I love that song! I’ve been meaning to really listen to her newer stuff though, the only recent one that I’ve heard from her is Brenda, but I think that was just a freestyle that she did on her Youtube Channel other than that I’ve not heard any other tracks from her, which I know I need to!

I always have it in my head to listen to them, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet, but I will!

Lady Leshurr is one of the best UK Grime artists I’ve ever listened to! I do have a few other favorite artists in Grime that I like, but she’s one of my top favorites and I would definitely recommend anyone that’s looking for new music or is just looking for something new to experience to check her out! While you’re doing that definitely check out other Grime artists because I’m telling you, you won’t be disappointed, the only way you’ll be disappointed is if it’s just not your thing, that’s fine if it’s not, everyone likes different things, but if you are at least interested, give Lady Leshurr a listen as well as all the other Grime artists too, you’ll be in for a real treat!

P.S.

Seeing that we’re getting close to Halloween and going on about themes I wanted to share one of Lady Leshurr’s songs Queen Speech 6 one of my all time favorites, it’s got that Halloween vibe going in a way, I mean she released it on Halloween, she even says Happy Halloween in the song so in my book it’s considered Halloween like! She even dressed up for it in the video so go ahead and give it a listen, it’s a great song, you’ll get a kick out of it as you’re enjoying the song! If you want to check out her other stuff, all you got to do is keep listening to her, but yeah go over there and give her some support and love, she deserves it!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Let’s Talk: The Phantom Of The Opera

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

All The Love ❤ ❤

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Update:

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

Wake Me Up When Sept….Oh We’re Here!?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Update:

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

Animal Crossing Update: The Bird Is Word

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

P.S.

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

All The Love ❤ ❤
