Plans & Decisions…

I’ve never been one for planning you know, which you probably do because I’ve mentioned it a few times on here, me and plans….don’t mix, however I’ve come to a point in my life where, I’m finding myself trying to plan for things which is usually not my department, but if the time has come for me to really sit and plan things properly then I’m going to do it! I’m going to put myself in an uncomfortable situation and face it the best way I can, scared and full of nerves combined!

Today has been a bit of a rough day for me, I’ll admit, I woke up with soooo many thoughts in my head and trying to sort them is completely new to me, I don’t normally sort my thoughts out well and so trying to do that today has got my head just full of aches lol…..but it’s okay because I know that there’s something that is very important I want to do and if I end up losing a little bit of sleep from it or feel myself getting slightly anxious on, I’m alright with that! Plans aren’t my normal cup of tea, but I’ve been trying to embrace it a little better instead of getting intimidated by them,

Plans are important they can help layout things so you don’t feel all over the place! Normally I like going with things naturally, but I’ve also been learning that sometimes you need to plan for things in order to work them out, if you just let things always go as they are, whatever is most important to you can get away from you and if that’s something you don’t want then you have to really work at them and take those steps to having them come to fruition and making them happen…..I’m always being told that life is short and you want to make sure you’re always giving attention to the things that matter most even if it seems hard, it can seem like you won’t get there, but if you want it enough and you believe in it enough….you already know that it can get there, you just have to take those steps to get them there!

Now with the things that I’m planning, there’s a few decisions that I’ve come to realize I need to face and deal with, even though some of the stuff may not be my favorite to want to deal with…..it’s up to me to take that breath, put on a brave face and do it anyway…..with planning you also have to make decisions tough or not, because that’s the only way for you to grow better and to experience things without all the limits of it all it all, you have to allow yourself to fly even if you are bat scared shit of it and yes I’m saying it just like that because it’s how I’m feeling it at the moment….if we continue to always keep ourselves on the ground, as safe as it may be sometimes you have to also fly or float otherwise you’ll always be there wishing you could soar that blue sky!

I recently went on a trip as you may know if you read that post and I was really nervous when I was waiting to go on the plane, but once I got on the plane…..I don’t know I was very happy, I smiled to myself knowing I did something that scared me and even when I was on the vacation I was on…..I was ready to go back on the plane……it just felt good and I really enjoyed myself knowing that I was ahead somewhere that I hadn’t been yet and that’s what I want to continue, I want to keep discovering, exploring and going on adventures…..but also I want to share that experience and so if I need to plan in order to do that, like I said…..I will!

The upcoming plan idea is to finally be able to see my love again and figure out how we can be together permanently, we both have wanted that for a good now sooo, I’m just hoping that it all goes well for us this time, which we’ll make sure it does!

Planning By A Non Planner (Personal Thoughts) Ep. 32 Daydreamer's Podcast

Hiya everyone, hope you've been having a good week so far! In today's episode, I talk about some of my own personal thoughts that I've been feeling today and about planning….something I see as intimidating normally, but I've been trying to embrace it a little better this time around and really do my best with it all!

Last Month Of Summer….

Good Afternoon Everyone, Happy August….that is if this month started off well for you! If it didn’t I hope it goes better from here on out, I mean we’re only on the second day so don’t worry on it too much, sometimes we have slow startups, but that doesn’t mean we won’t get going eventually! Farewell July and welcome August, the last month of the Summer….how mad is it that Summer is practically over and we’re getting closer to the Autumn season!? I’d say pretty mad, although I always feel summer flies by normally, however Summer this year, has stayed for quite a while so the fact that we’re just now reaching the end of Summer, that’s the mad part to me at least!

The start of August started a little rocky, by rocky I mean more on a personal manner, it kind of followed in toward the end of the July month and started on a less of a high note with the start of this month, but the rest of the day yesterday wasn’t all bad, there weren’t great moments, but it wasn’t too bad! I want to say that I know what this month will have in store, but I’m going to hold off on saying that, do I have an inkling on what I feel this month will be like!? Not really….but I have a lot of hope that whatever it turns out to be that it’ll be good!

July was a bit of an up and down month, well to me anyway, It might’ve been different for you guys and if so I’m glad that you had a good month last month, when it comes to August who knows what it’ll be like, just because it may have started off a little rough, doesn’t mean that it won’t turn around! August may start off delayed for a lot of people and if that is happening try not to get too worked up about it, it being a bit delayed may just mean that something needs a little more time to make progress or need times to be able to really get the ball rolling on whatever important decisions you find yourself unable to really make a definite choice on, which is alright!

We may just need that extra moment of thought or whatever it is we feel is needed even if we may not know or really see it if that makes sense!? Everything is going to turn out alright, some of us just maybe need to wait it out a bit or let it take natural form in a way that we have yet to witness, who knows maybe it’s already happened for a lot of you already, it may have started that way at the end of last month and there’s a possibility that it’s continuing to make that progress that you will eventually see unfold one by one, it’s just a matter of time!!

Again, if it isn’t happening like that right away, don’t freight, it will, it just might need a little more time to get started! Like I said I have a lot of hope that August will be a promising month full of surprises and new beginnings, be it planned or unplanned, I guess we’ll have to wait to find out!

All The Love ❤ ❤

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!

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!?

All The Love ❤ ❤

This Was Meant To Be An Album Review Post…..But Now It’s Something Else….

Okay so as i’m writing this, it’s the first of April, speaking of first let me just say, I kinda can’t believe it’s April already, just a couple months ago, like the beginning of this year, it felt like it was slowly going, but the fact that we’re now in the 4th month of 2020…..is a little insane!! Now even though we’re in the fourth month of this year, it doesn’t mean that it hasn’t took it’s time arriving, I think each month so far has had their fair share of importance,

Meaning I wouldn’t quite say the months have zoomed by like they usually do, which I guess is pretty good so to say, yeah this year so far hasn’t really been all that great with everything going on now, but still……let’s just try and keep as positive as we can though, it’s can be a little hard in these times, I know, but if we can spread a little light in someway, then it won’t be so bad right!? As you can tell from the title, we’re going to try or shall I say were going to try and review/share some thoughts on one of my favorite bands the Jonas Brothers and their latest album Happiness Begins

Now I have yet to really sit and listen to this album, I was meant to listen to it earlier and get my thoughts going on it, but I ended up doing something else that I wasn’t expecting, but on a good note, I made something that i’m pretty happy with, now I know it’s not the best photo, but i’m pretty happy with this little decorative branch tree, there was a lot of trees and vines removed from my backyard…..now you might be wondering why I made this well, it wasn’t planned, I was just going for my usual trip to the backyard to sit and get some air and when I got there, it was everywhere

Kinda got emotional, not sure why, I think it was the fact that i’ve been going there for a while now, it’s the only place I go when I need to think or just want to sit for a while and the trees are always there and to see it without anything really, I didn’t like it, also there’s a log that i’ve been using as a stand for my camera when i’m recording and that was also gone for a moment, I found it and did my best to hide it away where only I know where it is, so hopefully that doesn’t get touched again!!

Also don’t mind the blinds, especially that one sticking out, other than that, I really like this, there’s some pebbles inside the vase that I cleaned out when I was outside and then Lysol’d when I got inside, the pebbles are there to keep the branch tree steady, these pebbles I had for a long time, I still got more in case you’re wondering, you probably weren’t though……

I knew they’d come in handy eventually, there’s also something else in the vase keeping the decorative branch tree up, but uhhh it’s a secret…….alright it’s a bag of coins, happy!! IMPROVISATION GOTTA LOVE IT!!! As for the album review that will be set for tomorrow, I want to do it a certain way,

but I kinda don’t have the energy to do it the way I want right now, I probably shouldn’t have stayed outside so long…….in my backyard, not near people just to make that clear, I was trying to do something,

What you see in the photo, however I had a completely different thing in mind to what I ended up going with instead, I gotta say though, my original idea probably wouldn’t have fit anyway, due to not really having space for it, but hey this one works too, I just picked a few branches that I felt would fit and tied a rubber band to it, it’s doing it’s job well i’d say!!

I’m going to have to change the title to this post now, by the time you read this the title will be changed to something else, it was just going to be the album review as the title, luckily the planned post doesn’t need to be up until the end of the week, at least that’s how I set it anyway in my journal, but tomorrow definitely we’ll be taking a look at the Jonas Brothers and their latest album Happiness Begins…….still excited and I can’t wait!!

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.

Just Gonna Wander A Bit….

You ever feel like you need your brain to wander, but you don’t really know why you want it to wander around for!? Yeah that’s how i’m feeling at the moment…..My brain isn’t in the mood to want to cooperate with me today, but I guess I need to let myself be okay with that, I did really want to record a video today, but I just couldn’t get my thoughts to form properly so I might have to rain check on it, I think the way the day went might’ve tuckered me out a bit, didn’t do that much just some slight running around, but yeah……

I shouldn’t go taking it as such a “Sigh” moment though, I mean I was saying to myself yesterday that I felt like I needed to write something it’s been about 5 days since my last post and I was going to try and write on here yesterday, but I had no idea what exactly I wanted to share so I didn’t,

But maybe today was the day to write for me and just relax a bit……i’ve kinda been in a mode trying to get some ideas down in terms of videos, trying to set it a certain way, just to get an idea, but maybe I just need to not think so hard and give it a little, i’m sure it’ll all come to me in time

I think that’s all I have to say though, but before I finish up this post, I did upload a new video, it was posted last night so if you want to take a look at that, it’s on the channel for whenever you guys want to watch it,

If you’ve been watching my videos I just want to say thank you, I really do appreciate it and I hope that you’ve all been enjoying them, but anyway I hope you all have had a good day and are enjoying your night and I hope your three day weekend treats you all well!! ^_^

I Think I Unknowingly Signed Up For Blogmas!?….

This is a real title you’re reading here, i’m not just writing this just because, so far as i’ve written a post everyday since the start of December and I didn’t even pay it any mind, it wasn’t until I really looked at all my posts today that I realized I think I might’ve signed up for blogmas unknowingly.

It’s no wonder I was so eager to post my last post before midnight last night, literally, I could’ve posted my post a little earlier, but I wanted to have a cover photo for it and I wanted to be one of my doodles, it took a while to get it from emails, had to send it over from my phone to my computer, so yeah that’s why it was posted a little later during the night.

Since we’re now on the topic of blogmas, this is actually my first time really trying one of these, although i’m not really sure if i’m officially apart of it, considering I haven’t quite added blogmas to my posts to show i’ve joined it, i’ve kinda just been writing posts everyday this month so far, again I didn’t really think about it until today really……in a way though, maybe that’s a good thing, i’ve heard how stressful blogmas can be at times…….

Having to find a topic to write about everyday for a whole month, I know sometimes some people don’t always get a chance to finish it all the way, not because they don’t want to, but because of how much work it is, you wouldn’t think it’d be so overwhelming, but it can be if it’s not balanced right, that goes with blogging in general i’m sure as well as everything else.

You know to be honest though, i’m not really sure on the whole concept of blogmas and if there’s a certain way to participate, I just always took it as you have to try and blog everyday up until Christmas I believe something like that, i’m not really sure, again I haven’t actually officially joined really, it just feels like I have because i’ve been writing a post everyday since the start of this month, willingly, I haven’t forced myself, i’m kinda just going on the randomness of it, it’s probably why it’s working because i’m not thinking too hard about it and not stressing, not that much anyway.

However i’m feeling as though I have a deadline with this post, for some reason I don’t want to miss a day so i’m trying to see how long I actually last with this, with blogmas you kinda have to plan out your posts, I don’t do that, planning as you all know just isn’t my thing, so that’s why i’m going with whatever floats out of me when it comes to posting, although…….

There is one post that i’m planning to write, it was suppose to be written today, but i’m going to either leave it for tomorrow or Friday, I thinking end of the week fits it better, if you don’t see the post i’m talking about tomorrow then expect it Friday, i’ll make sure to tell you “this is the post I was talking about guys” so you guys know, but anyway here’s to hoping I can keep up with Blogmas now, this should be interesting……..

Pre Prepping For Post Writing Or Anything Really…. (Aug 6, 2019)

Pre writing and prepping before the initial due date or when you plan to have something done, may actually help get something done on the time, you hope to get it done…….thinking about what to write about, I started trying to plan a writing schedule for my posts, this is something i’ve been thinking about for a while now, but I could never come up with one that quite fit so I never bothered sticking to one……

However I think I figured it out this time, there are certain topics that I have wanted to have a specific “post day” for, posts in the Now Playing….category where I talk about certain artists and discuss their new music and my thought on it, even going and talking about the artists themselves, sometimes it won’t even be about an artist and their new music, but just sharing some of my favorite songs and everything,

While hopefully maybe giving you guys some recommendations for new music to listen to in the process….i’m sure you get what I mean though….

It’s those kind of posts that I keep wanting to set specific days for, i’m not really sure why, I have this thing where when I think of music, I think of the weekend (no not the singer) the actual weekend, although you can listen to it on any day of the week really, you don’t have to specify it,

but when I think of music and the feeling of it, it gives off a relaxing chill down time kind of mode or mood (whichever you prefer) it’s exciting and inviting and it lets you just wind down and enjoy yourself for the moment.

Just like when you get that weekend feeling, you know!? I’ve been trying to set it up that way for a while, but with the way I write it never works out quite that way……but I think I have it lined up this time, I think pre writing it and scheduling it to when I want it to be posted might just help with that…

It’ll also keep the stress of thinking I have to hurry and get this done down, when it gets close to the day, by that time, it’ll already be up which means I won’t have to worry…..when it comes to my other posts those should come naturally, but let’s see how prepping and pre writing a post works out……

All The Love ❤ ❤
