Good Evening everyone! Hope your weeks been well so far, it’s Tuesday almost Wednesday and we’re nearing the end of this month….I just came to the realization of that today that we’re in the last week of July! We’ve got one more Summer month to go that is August and right after that we will enter the Autumn season, crazy, crazy, crazy!! I don’t even know what exactly to say when it comes to this month, I mean a lot has happened within this month that was a little unexpected, but it’s been good I feel….I had a new experience and adventure this month and there’s a lot of changes that has either been occurring or in the works if that makes sense!?
Overall though, this month has been surprisingly good, I’d say, but it’s also been on the mixed side as well in terms of pretty good and it’s had it’s days, but other than that….I honestly don’t know what else to say, I probably said a bit of it in my last post and most of my feeling of this month in my latest podcast episode so whatever you don’t see me say here, you’ll either see some of it in my last blog post, well sorry the one before my last one, my July 22nd post or you’ll hear me talk on it in my Podcast episode! I won’t lie, the fact that the month is just coming to an end, feels surprising to me even though, it felt like it was here for sooo long as weird as that sounds…..this year in general, just feels like one day it’s speeding by and the next is just taking it’s sweeet time, not that that’s a bad thing, it’s just how I feel it to be!!
Could be different for everyone else which is most likely the case yano!? buut yeah…..not a lot of thought writing wise for this month, but I do still have thoughts which I shared in some way or form, maybe not in this post, but in my 22nd of July post and my latest podcast episode! I hope you all have been well and I hope that July has been good to you, that you enjoyed it and whatever you had planned for this month or what you didn’t have planned to where it just showed up randomly and unexpectedly…..I hope that it was good and that it made you happy or maybe you learned something new, experienced something new, whatever this month brought you, I just hope that it all went well for you,
Maybe you’re still being patient for it to arrive and when it does, I wish nothing, but the very best for you all and I hope it goes well regardless to how it shows up for you….those are my thoughts of this month, I know it’s probably short, but sometimes short is good, you don’t always have to say so much, but if you want and feel you want to that’s okay, it’s how ever you feel you want to express!!
If you would like to hear more of my thoughts of this month, check out my latest episode, I discuss upon a few different things, but I like to think they all tie in well together, I hope you enjoy it!
Happy Weekend, hope you've been well!! I'm back and with a new episode, in todays episode I talk about a few things on my mind, from how the months been, how it's important to take moments to yourself and recharge and a whole lot of other things as well! It's been an interesting month, full of new experiences, adventure and changes to come…..plus this summer has been pretty darn hot!
Gooood Morning, although it’s almost close to the afternoon here!! Hope everyone’s well and having a good day, so today I thought I’d talk about a movie that, honestly not going to lie I didn’t think I’d ever discuss upon this movie other than going on about how I never really liked it all that much, but then I was forced to watch the the second part of this movie and it turns out…..I actually really like Frozen 2…..like I REALLY like it, only the second one though, just to be VERY clear about that!! I’m still not all that big of a fan of the very first Frozen movie okay!! It’s an alright movie, but no…*shaking head* nooo, if we have to say something nice about the first movie, well I’ve grown to like Let It Go, yes I know it’s the most popular song of the first Frozen movie, but I got to admit, it’s got good lyrics *Shrugs shoulders*
Let’s talk about the movie that we’re here for though, Frozen 2, the movie that I feel in my opinion has the better soundtrack to the first movie, by better I mean I like more songs from the second movie compared to the first one, now I will say that I’ve watched Frozen 2 twice and have listened to the soundtrack a few couple times…..I even have a few favorites saved on my Spotify so I listen to the tracks quite often, more when they come on randomly or if I want to listen to a specific song I’ll go out of my way and look for it, but yeah, I’ve listened to the soundtrack more times than I’ve watched the movie is what I’m saying!!
Let’s discuss this movie though shall we!? Now this won’t be a movie review because I don’t really know how to do those, so in this post we’re going to, well I’m going to try to describe what my thoughts were, when I first watched this movie, as for the soundtrack, I’ve got different plans for that so I won’t be discussing it here today, but the movie I’m going to do my best to give my thoughts and reaction of it…..so where do we start…..
Well I wasn’t thrilled at first when watching this movie, I didn’t want to watch it because I wasn’t really into the first one, but a friend of mine insisted that we watch it, after I told her I hadn’t seen it, so she went ahead and put it on and I wasn’t able to really escape from watching it with her…..so here we are on Christmas Eve watching Frozen 2, as we’re watching the movie, she keeps telling me I’m gonna like it and I’m like “we’ll see” I wasn’t sure if I would, but as I’m watching it, I find myself kind of getting into it, but I’m not saying anything because I know she’ll bring out the I told you so’s and it was too early to be saying all that, so I continued to see if I would get more into it as it progressed
Halfway into the movie and I’m like “okay it’s not that bad” the songs were really good, you got your funny moments, Olaf is pretty funny, I loved the whole scene where they’re in the forest and he’s looking for Elsa, Anna, Sven and Kristoff and he’s calling for a Samantha and he’s cracking up and says the famous line “I don’t know a Samantha”
I thought that was really funny, I laughed watching it!! I have my own theory or more like an idea on what they can do with that, the whole Samantha bit, but I also thought that maybe they were shouting out one of the people who worked on the movie or, oooor this proclaimed Samantha miiiight just be a foreshadowed character we see later, if they make a third movie, maybe a potential girlfriend for Olaf or just a new character they have in mind to add in the future, I think that’d be pretty cool, we’ll see I guess!!
At this point I’m actually enjoying the movie, I love the little lizard that Elsa befriends in the forest, he’s soooo cute like if I can have him myself I would…..maybe, he’s probably based off a real lizard so that’s why I say maybe…..but he really is cute, I like to think that, he’s Elsa’s new pet and sidekick partner and that! I like what they did with Anna again in this movie, I know she was a significant part in the first movie and they also gave her a significant part in this movie as well…..Elsa’s story is really beautiful, I like how they have the voice be as her guide to her discovering herself
I love how they gave her a spirit animal to help her along the journey that she’s on, that at first she herself isn’t aware of, but later throughout the movie she starts to be come more aware that with the voice that she’s following, how it’s trying to get her to come more into herself and learn something important as well and I guess as I was watching that all unfold, it was getting to me in a way, because I felt a weird connection to this movie and part me kind of didn’t like how I was enjoying this movie, but at the same time, a part of me was happy that I gave this movie a chance to change my mind about Frozen and the whole part at the end that I won’t spoil, here’s hoping I haven’t already spoiled too much already, but the thing at the end that I won’t talk too much about…..I liked it, it was a good choice, I did get emotional watching this movie, I’ll admit it…..okay…..I wasn’t expecting to, but I did and I’m okay with it sooo….
I have a very big soft spot for Frozen 2, I loved this movie, am I surprised about it!? Yeah because I honestly didn’t think that I would feel connected to it as much as I did, I wasn’t ready to feel this movie on a deeper level, I mean I wasn’t a fan of the first movie so I wasn’t expecting this movie to do much, but it did and I thought it was really good, I liked the story and the deeper meaning that it had and I hate to admit it…..but I’m K.I.N.D.A. obsessed with Frozen 2! Every time I see Frozen anywhere, I’m like “ooh Frozen” always referencing the second movie though, like at one point I didn’t like it one bit and then all of sudden the second movie comes around, I watch it and I’m fan girling than I’ve ever fan girled before in my life with it…..like seriously “Oh how the tables have turned” but it’s fine!
I really like the meaning behind things and the meaning that this movie brings, is the reason I like it so much, plus it’s actually really pretty and I think because they had fall and winter together in this movie, might also be the reason to why I prefer it to the first…..I LOVE the fall season, but also, that soundtrack….I’m looking forward to discussing about it and sharing my thoughts on it, especially that Kristoff track….laughing to myself just thinking about it….don’t worry it’s not that bad!!
It probably seems a little odd that i’m finally writing about the month of October when it’s pretty much halfway finished, I mean Halloween is literally around the corner now, but whether you noticed or haven’t really noticed, it’s been three weeks today since my last post so I figured,
Well more like felt I need to write something, do I know what this post is going to be about!? Not really at this point i’m just writing and seeing what comes out, I was trying to figure out what would be a good topic to write on,
but yeah thinking on that i’d be stuck on it all day so that’s why i’m just writing, trying to not think on it so much……if you’re wondering on the title well we’ve been having a lot of rain lately this month and so I figured, perfect title!!
These days i’ve been finding myself away from my computer and so that’s kinda why I haven’t been writing as much, also I haven’t really had a lot of things i’ve wanted to talk about which is also the reason I haven’t written in a while, October has been pretty alright i’d say, i’ve gone to appreciate this month a little, October might be the month of horror, which isn’t my favorite kind of thing, but that aside it’s been pretty alright nonetheless
I’ve been on a small amount of adventures sorta, if you want to count what my definition of adventures are, it probably wouldn’t be called adventures to you, but to me they are, i’ve slightly embraced certain things I normally wouldn’t quite go with and I guess that’s good, it might not mean much to most of you, but for me this month has invited me to enjoy and kinda go with whatever the day has in mind and I appreciate it……
Some days aren’t always full of it, but when they are, i’ve had a good time when in the moment of course and I guess when in those moments that’s all you can ask for, enjoying what life wants you to see, in the moments that you’re seeing them, but that’s my October post, sorry if it’s a short one….
Hope you all are enjoying your day and having a good one!!
It’s now both the beginning of a new season and the ending of a month, which is September……I feel like this month went by quite quickly yet at the same time I remember when it first arrived, goodness……I feel like I don’t have a lot of words today…..at least with writing a post, on a brighter note, one of the best things with this month is the different colors of the leaves
I just think they’re really pretty and sometimes you come across unique ones or at least some that catch your eye……i’m not really sure how to feel knowing that we’re literally on the last day of this month, I was thinking of that when I went outside for some fresh air earlier this morning, normally I feel like the other months were taking their time, but this month i’m not sure, I mean it arrived and now it’s going……I guess this month has always been like that, but maybe i’m just noticing it!? Maybe it’s just me.
September……to describe it I can’t, I just know it’s the month that brings us the colors that the trees soon take on as well as a whole new season that’s been a little indecisive on what kind of weather it wants to be, sometimes it’s hot, sometimes rainy and stormy leaving wondering how you oughta dress for it…….I think fall in general may just be that way……but yeah….
September was here and now we’ll be welcoming the month known as October a.k.a. the “Spoopy” month, I know it’s Spooky, but some people call it that and I like it, not sure if it’s spelled the way I have it, but still I like it!! Just so you know, i’ve never really been a fan of the Halloween month, so with October literally arriving later tonight……i’m not sure what it’s going to be like, it might just be how it normally is, but also different I feel just based on the way the year has gone, we’ll have to wait and see on that won’t we!?
Have you ever listen to a song of an artist and just admired their way of expression!? Of course everyone has their way of expressing something that their trying to say without having to actually say it, but I just can’t help, but be amazed with the way some artist go about their expression, especially Musicians, if you haven’t known already i’m pretty big fan of music,
I tend to give everything a listen, but there are specific kinds of music that I either prefer or just have a odd gravitation towards and for me i’ve always enjoyed and admired how Indie artist express their art of music, but I can also appreciate how other artist express as well, the reason i’m focused on indie artists is because I always find it interesting just how well they go about every lyric they write, I can’t explain it really, but there’s something about it…..i’m sure non indie musicians have done it this way too and i’m sure i’ve listened to a few or more before, I guess we’ll go ahead and keep an open mind on these other artist as well and not just the indie world of it.
What i’m trying to say is any song that has a very unique way of writing that’s hard to explain I like…..as you can see from the title two of my favorite musicians are within this category, both Scott James and British musician Michael Kilbey always leave me without words whenever I listen to their songs, they write so beautifully!! Scott James tends to have a wandering feel with his music, while Michael Kilbey is more mysterious with his music, but you always feel you’re going on some kind of journey of some sort, at least that’s how I feel about his earlier songs anyway….
To be fair these two might’ve switched a little for all I know, to explain their writing styles would be a hard one for me to do, I always tend to listen to songs and see if I can get a feel to what it sounds like to me and wandering, journey and mysterious is what I came up with when I tried thinking about it with these two, Scott’s voice when he sings is very melodic, his music gives me fall meets Spring vibes, it’s just really pretty his sound, I don’t know how else to say it, it’s really calming…..As for Michael Kilbey’s voice….
It’s very deep, yet angelic at the same time and his music gives me winter meets fall vibes, again his earlier stuff, I don’t know about his new stuff, I have yet to actually hear that, maybe it’s the same, but maybe it’s changed I don’t know, still though whenever I listen to his music, it always leaves me deep in thought, if I went and studied his way of writing……i’d feel like it’d be quite hard to figure out, but I know that it’d still leave me wondering.
Both these musicians always leave me curious with their music and I admire the way they use their words in their writing, also they remind me of both the night time and the evening, Michael Kilbey representing Night and Scott within the later times in their music, maybe that’s confusing, might be weird, but that’s what came into my head a moment ago,
I don’t know if that made sense or not, I thought it as if when hearing these songs where do I tend to listen to it the most, around the later times, this is how I think sometimes, so don’t mind me, but I just wanted to express all of that…..I made a video on this last week, which I posted last night, but I wanted to be able to explain it a bit better and for some reason this tends to be the only way it makes sense and so I wrote most of the other stuff I wanted to say then here, if you want to check out that video, you can watch it here: Let’s Talk: Musical Talents (Scott James & Michael Kilbey)
What favorite artist of yours do you feel have very unique writing styles!?
Hiya i’m sure you all have noticed, but in case this weather is giving you some mixed feelings, we’ve now entered a new month and we’ll soon be entering a new season as well, it’s a little crazy that we’re already in the month of September it feels like for a while we were in the Summer months for quite some time, but once August came around things started speeding up just a little bit, however just like all the other months we’re having to say see you the next time around and get used to the colder months now.
Now I gotta say, i’m kinda a little happy that we’re getting into the more colder part of the months, mainly with the fall, not so much winter, although I may have been born in the Springtime, I do really enjoy the months of Autumn, I can’t really tell you why, but fall has always been my second favorite season, I just really love the look and feel of it, you know!?
Spring is great too, I mean that’s the season I was born in so I have to make sure to give it some kinda of love, but there’s just something about fall that I can’t quite explain, maybe it’s the way the leaves change color or just the aura of it, if seasons have aura’s that is, who knows really, for all I know I could just be talking nonsense, but nonetheless it’s still great!!
Summer however was…..well I guess you can say that it had its moments, I won’t say it was the best summer, but I won’t go putting it down either, to be fair, i’ve never really been all that into the summer, so there’s not really much to say when it comes to it, summer and I…..we’ll just have to always agree to disagree, it’s not that it’s a bad season, just not mine……
Fall on the other hand, love it!! I can’t tell you what exactly i’m expecting to happen with it, so I guess i’ll just have to do my best to embrace it as best as I can with whatever it chooses to bring along…..if I had to describe what fall is like…..i’d say it’s both deep thinking and curious, but it also give you that sense of something that you just can’t quite grasp if that makes sense, you can take on that what you will, hopefully whatever you feel fall to be for you is something that is good and worth to be the season that it is…..
Well it’s November already, October sure came and went didn’t it!? We’re getting closer to Christmas, but before we try and zoom by into the winter of wonderlands, we should really let this month sail nice and smoothly downwards before getting out the Christmas tree and letting deck the halls and let it snow play all over the place……
(not saying I don’t enjoy Christmas tunes, i’m just saying we really should let the months have their time in the spotlight and November is the month where we for some reason always feel the need to skip over, which I get it, November has Thanksgiving which isn’t all that big of a holiday, but still let’s give it the moment it needs, we’ll get to Christmas in time, it’s only another month away, i’m sure we can deal…….who am I kidding, November will always be that month that, people will continuously, yet quietly tell to move along…….)
Moving away from November being the “skip over” month, hope you all are doing well, long time no write I know, it’s been a pretty long while, 3 weeks i’d say……3 weeks today anyway, you might be wondering why I haven’t written in a while, well i’ll tell you, I kinda went and took a break from writing, there was a lot of stuff going on in my personal life,
plus I was feeling pretty stressed out and I just wasn’t doing well and needed to take a bit of time away, I ended up doing it naturally, it wasn’t until I was maybe close to 2 weeks in to where I actually went and wrote a post that I never posted expressing how I was going to take a break because there was just so much happening and going that I couldn’t even focus,
I wasn’t trying to keep from writing, I just didn’t feel the need to write, I didn’t have the mindset to write is what i’m trying to say, my head wasn’t in it and so that’s why I haven’t posted in a while. I was also going through my own thing that I needed to sort through, still trying to sort it all, it’s one of those things that’s going to take a bit of time, but compared to how I was feeling before to how i’m feeling right now……i’m okay, as okay as I can be anyway.
There’s still a lot that I feel needs work personally, a lot of work if i’m being honest…..but overalli’m okay, everything is pretty much in the okay bracket right now to be fair, this year has been quite the year I gotta say, I won’t say too much on it right now, but i’ll do my best to write a summary on it when I get the chance, sometime next month hopefully, I might have to pre write it so that way i’ll be able to have everything laid out even if what I have written down isn’t exactly what I have written down if that makes sense!?
For now, i’ll just share a little update as well as say i’m back from being away for a while, sorry for disappearing like that, I think that was the longest i’ve gone without writing……not good, but I hope you all have been doing well and you guys had a good October month as well as a fun and interesting Halloween, I didn’t really do much for Halloween,
It’s not really my favorite month, although I did watch a few Halloween classics (movies), well kinda, I watched maybe half of certain movies…..I think the only thing I enjoy about Halloween is the movies, the holiday isn’t bad though, I just don’t really celebrate it much, but it’s a pretty alright holiday, as for this month, we’re 2 weeks away from Thanksgiving, well from most it is, I know not everyone celebrates it, but it’s close by, which is pretty insane because soon December will be here, which means we’re coming extremely close to the end of the year that is 2019 and…..yeah…..
I’m just going to try and keep my head in the remaining days and months of this year and worry about everything else when it comes, not saying i’m not already thinking about the future, I am, believe me, but sometimes you gotta set a reminder for yourself that there has to be some kind of balance with it otherwise, you’re just going to end up losing your mind.
That’s the update, I should be good on getting back to posting now, but I just have to figure how much I want to be posting, it’ll come to me!!
Disclaimer:As you can see, I wrote this post 3 days ago, it’s just a small story on a butterfly wing that I came across, I thought it was interesting and wanted to share it, however I didn’t post it, but i’m going to post it today, I hope you enjoy half of the pre writing to it, plus some added things as well.
Happy August 2nd Everyone!! Can’t believe we’re already on our last Summer month, soon all the leaves will change colors, we’ll start going back to wearing sweaters with it getting a little colder and we’ll be in the season of Fall (a.k.a Autumn, also known as the Autumn Solstice……I know I could’ve just stuck with fall, but I just wanted to add them all for some reason)
Okay so I don’t really have all that much to talk about, although I did come across something interesting while on a walk coming back from the store, that interesting thing so happen to be a butterfly wing……yep, you read that right, just a butterfly wing, singular, no butterfly attached……..it was weird, i’ve never seen just half of a wing from a butterfly before……..
I was tempted to pick it up when I saw it, I didn’t, I ended up just leaving it be, should’ve taken a photo of it though, I could’ve shared it with you had I gotten a picture of it, but the thought of taken a photo didn’t come to mind until I got home and left it for a bit, it was weird, but also cool.
I also tried looking it up to see if there was a meaning to seeing one (don’t ask why, I just tend to look up things when i’m curious on something or something interest me, heck i’ll be honest, I look up pretty much anything…..well not anything, anything, most things, we all do it)
The search for the meaning of seeing a butterfly wing didn’t really come up to anything, it was more on coming across a butterfly, nothing on just the wing itself……I really should’ve taken a photo, but hey who knows it might still be there or may not (well seeing as it’s the 5th already, I don’t think it’d still be there, although i’d be very surprise if I saw that it was)
but hey at least I got to see one up close for the first time, butterflies I know are seen as good luck, as well as other things so maybe seeing the wing isn’t bad, i’m not sure…..if you’re wondering what kind of butterfly it was (you’re probably not, most likely) but i’m going to tell anyway, because…..why not!?
It was a Monarch Butterfly, they’re lovely they are, all butterflies are, except for moths I don’t like them, not.at.all…..I do have a photo of a Monarch that I took a long while ago, last year to be exact……it’s not the greatest photo, but I could share it if you like!!! I probably could’ve focused on it better, I used my phone to take the photo and that was as good as I was going to get…….
I also drew a butterfly although the pattern on the wings are a bit different to how normal butterflies look, but hey all butterflies are different right!? A little creativity doesn’t hurt anyone….looking at it now though, i’m not really sure why I did this pattern, I tried to draw a butterfly with the actual patterns on it, but it wasn’t working so I ended up just improvising.
Update: So those are the photos, couldn’t transfer them through my phone onto my computer for some reason, so I had to send them to my email….
With my butterfly sketch, I only outlined it with a gel pen, i’m debating on whether to color it in or not, I kinda like it the way it is, hence why there’s still pencil shading, it might not be the best pencil shading, but shading is there….i’m still trying to figure out whether I should give it color or not,
If you you’d like to see color to it just let me know and if you have color suggestions feel free to add them down in the comments, because I have no idea what colors to use if I do decide on coloring it in.
Hope you’re all doing alright and having a good day!!
