We’ve entered a week now in the month of January, what does that mean!?…..that we just entered a week within the new year pretty much, nothing else to it really just that, the day started out pretty well…..
I say well in a both sarcastic and regular way, spilled some tea this morning and I don’t mean just regularly, I mean I SPILLED IT!! You should get what I mean by that when I say it, it was great though, nothing like a very hot tea spilling on you early in the morning, yeah loved it, wouldn’t have asked for anything better (no but seriously it was really hot it and it burned) luckily though I was able to change, it wasn’t too bad though, but still no one likes hot tea or any hot beverage for the matter spilling on them you know!?
I blame the honey I was trying to add to it for being so rock solid that it knocked over, but hey it happens, it’s fine!! I know I haven’t quite written in the past three days, I just hadn’t had anything I wanted to write about so I thought i’d leave it for when I knew I had something, plus I thought i’d be nice to be able to write once it hit a week for this month and year, why!? I really don’t know, but it just seemed good when I thought about it!!
Today just probably wasn’t the best day in terms of things going on properly the way they should’ve, but sometimes you just gotta make yourself another tea and go with what the day has set up for you, even if it happens to be specifically one of those type of days you know!? Overall though, the day wasn’t too bad, it was okay, sure the day wasn’t on my greatest side,
but I took it as best as I could, what else can you do right!? I tell you though if the day was actual person and you could speak to it, yeah it would have the time of it’s life, it’s like your best friend just randomly feeling the need to prank you for whatever reason you couldn’t guess, but you just go along with it because, you know their just going to keep at it no matter what you say……that’s how i’m choosing to look at it anyway!!
Better to look at it in a some kind of good light then stressing over it and choosing to react negatively to it, it’s easy to do that, it’s harder to view from a more lighter perspective and give a situation of some sort a more positive outlook or at least somewhat of a decent outlook, sometimes things don’t align right at/in that very moment in the way you think it’s going to go and sure it’s not always the greatest feeling when that happens,
but it doesn’t mean it won’t come together and intwine, it will!! You just got to have those kind of trip up days a bit and when you least, least expect it, you’ll see it come together properly, patience is key here!!
It’s not always an easy thing to keep in mind, but staying calm as best as possible and keeping patient is what is needed in order to not freak out.
Hiya, hope you all are having a good one and have been enjoying your weekend. If you ask me how i’ve been doing, well I would say fine and not another word more, let’s just get straight into this post here shall we!? Now I never shared one of these before, so I don’t know if i’m even doing it right, if there is a specific way to do it, but I also feel it’s not all that hard to figure out the more you go along.
Before we get to the titled things that I will share upon being my favorites, I just want to say that I looked at the date earlier today and I can’t believe how quick this months gone, we’re literally at the end of the month and soon, real soon, we’ll be in the spooky season that is October, how crazy is that!? I’d say very, but is it really!?
These months always tend to speed on by, before you can really settle into a month, another month is already arriving to town, Halloween town!! Ha kidding, although it is a pretty good movie!! Moving on let’s talk favorites, again i’m not really sure how this is going to turn out, I mean I know it’s just writing, but i’ve never done a post where i’m just talking about my favorite things, but let’s see where this goes.
Okay first up on the favorite list is book: Crazy Is My Superpower (How I Triumphed By Breaking Bones, Breaking Hearts and Breaking The Rules) By AJ Mendez Brooks (formerly known as AJ Lee)
I adding this first because I just finished reading two chapters of a book I started reading last month, towards the end of the month to be exact. I actually started reading this on a Sunday and ironically today is Sunday.
Fun fact (sorta): originally I wanted to read this book every Sunday since that’s when I started reading it, I was only going to read 1 chapter every Sunday, but uhh, yeah that didn’t happen…..I did keep the routine going for two Sundays when I picked it up finally, i’ve had this book in between my bookshelf for a good while and when I say good while I mean, a year….
Update:I just relooked at it and it’s been in my bookcase for not 1, but 2 YEARS, YOKES!! Yeah I wrote that right, goodness that long *heavy sigh*
I actually preordered this book, but yeah that’s just a small uninteresting fact ha…..ANYWAY!! When I started reading this, it was on a day that I was feeling really…..not my best, I was just not having a good day and was feeling a lot, so I ended up picking this book off my bookshelf to give it a read and it made me feel better, while also allowing me to let my emotions out that day, it gave me an excuse to just feel without worry.
I also laughed because it’s just a really good book, i’m going to be honest I have no idea how to “book review” like at all……when I first read this, I wanted to talk about it, but I didn’t really know how, so I kinda just enjoyed it in the moment instead which I didn’t mind. To give you a brief idea of what it’s about, i’m going to attempt a brief run down, because I can just ramble on and on without stopping, but this book is an Autobiography,
Written by one of my favorite people, she’s a former wrestler, now author and actress I guess you can say, she’s been in some shows and movies that I never actually watched, yet anyway, but this book is about her life, she talks about all that she’s been through, her time in the WWE and also her struggle having to deal with being bipolar and what that’s like, there’s a lot more that she writes about in her book, but i’m only in the beginning part of the it, after reading two chapters today, i’m now on Chapter 5.
I’m saving it for next weekend, don’t want to finish the book too early, although I did debate on whether to read Chapter 5 as well after getting past 3 and 4, but I was like no i’ll save it for next time. I’m really enjoying this book, whenever I read a book, I never tend to finish the whole thing, there’s been a few occasions where I have read books towards the end,
Nowadays I read a book, stop at a certain chapter, open another book and repeat….but i’m giving this book a good amount of breathing room before I actually finish it, I don’t want to finish it too quickly because i’m really enjoying it and I want to keep the suspense to what else is going to be revealed possibly, there’s a lot of emotional moments in this, but with the way AJ writes, you’ll laugh, cry and get a better understanding of everything, pretty much your emotions will be all over the place.
I don’t know how to really give a good “Here’s why you should read this book” i’ve never reviewed a book before so I don’t know if i’m selling you this well enough, i’m not actually trying to, I just wanted to express how much i’m enjoying it, AJ is one of my favorite people, I love her so much, she’s really incredible and I know she’s writing another book so when that comes out, I will be getting it, but in the meantime, i’ll just keep on reading and enjoying Crazy Is My Superpower.
AJ’s quite the busy bee right now, she’s doing a lot of things and working on different projects, I think she’s going to be in a comic book or show something like that, I know she’s in a movie named Rabid, it’s a horror film and it’s a remake of the 1977 version, she plays along side her husband Phil Brooks (formerly known as CM Punk) and an actress from one of my all time favorite TV shows, that is Instant Star, Laura Vandervoort, she played Sadie Harrison, Jude Harrison’s older sister, played by one of my all time favorite artists Alexz Johnson, such a great show that was…..but back to AJ
She’s doing great, I love her!! Something I really like about the book is the fact that you get to feel her personality coming off the pages, when you read it, you’re literally hearing her voice inside your head as your reading it and I find that to be really neat, if you know AJ and know her personality and the way she is, then you’ll know what i’m talking about, but if not then your going to be so confused to what I just said and that’s okay!!
This is a really good book, I would recommend giving it a read, you don’t have to, but if you’re curious, it’s on the invisible table in front of you, unless there is a table in front of you than imagine it there.
Moving on to next favorite on the list Song: Mad By Cassie Steele
Just want to say, this song is AMAZING!! I love it!! I ended up coming across this one about a few days ago and after hearing it for the first time, I can say i’m pretty hooked with this one, I only heard it once when I first listened to it and that one time, I kept thinking about it. I didn’t listen to it for a few days after, but it stayed within my mind, where I kept thinking, “man I really want to listen to that song again.” it’s really good and it’s now my favorite song at the moment. For those who aren’t quite familiar with Cassie
You might or may not know, but she was in a show that I was obsessed with a couple months ago, it’s simmered down now, still a favorite though, but she played Manny Santos in the show Degrassi: The Next Generation from Season 1 to Season 8, plus 3 movies within the show, she’s got a few songs out as well as albums, she hasn’t made music in a while though, but there’s always hope that she will surprise us with something good maybe who knows, but Mad is one my favorites right now, she is so underrated as a singer it’s not funny, at least that’s my thoughts anyway, but it’s so good!!
Third on the list….Tea: Yeah I know, what!? Yes Tea, I don’t think i’ll have a whole lot to say with this one, but I have this specific tea that i’ve been drinking lately and it’s quite nice actually, it’s organic too, it’s called Organic Moroccan Mint Green Tea and it’s great!!
P.S.Sorry if this is a crappy photo, I took a lot last night and this came out to be the better looking, at least I thought it did, but yeah….
Anytime i’m feeling a little nervous or I feel my stomach is a little unsteady, which is often for me, I always go for tea, preferably peppermint, because it tends to help calm my stomach down, but we ran out of that one and I had this one to try out and so yeah i’ve been drinking it a lot lately, it’s really good and I actually have some next to me, it’s cold now, very cold, I don’t drink tea all that much and I also don’t drink it very quickly, that would burn if I did that, I actually burned my tongue yesterday by accident,
that was fun, but it happens…..I only drink tea every few days, I tend to make it the most when I start feeling anxious or when my stomach acts up, now don’t kill me, but I don’t always finish it…..but I do feel bad when I don’t because I know I made it to drink it, but I somehow end up forgetting about it and it’s not until i’m heading to sleep where i’m like “ahhh I did it again” but i’ve been really enjoying the mint/green tea i’m going to have to get some more soon because i’m running out, it’s a favorite of mine though.
Last, but not least, Channel Series: Jacksepticeye’s Minecraft Videos…..
I’m going to say this now…..i’ve never in my life thought I would ever write this, i’m not really into Minecraft, I wouldn’t go playing or going out of my way to watch videos on it, but Jacksepticeye’s series on it…..is pretty alright, i’ll be honest I didn’t get into it right away, it took me a little bit to sit and watch his gameplay on it, the first time I watched it, I couldn’t really be bothered to watch the whole thing, I went out my way to skip it, but I later went “let’s just give it another go” I used it as background noise while I rested my eyes a bit in the start, but after a couple of episodes in,
I ended up actually wanting to watch it which surprised me big time because I would never watch a Minecraft video, I actually remember talking about this to my little cousin when we were talking about video games, he was obsessed with Minecraft at one point, made me watch a few videos of it, I didn’t want to, but I did because he was interested in it and it made him happy. I watched as much as I could back then, until I couldn’t anymore, but now i’ll say it’s okay, Jack always makes his gameplays fun and enjoyable so that’s why I watch his channel, plus he’s one of my favorite people to watch, I love his video’s they’re very entertaining!!
We now have reached the end of this post, this was actually pretty fun, i’m not going to lie, I enjoyed writing about my favorite things at the moment, it’s something new and different, didn’t expect to write so much about the book i’m reading, but I did which is insane, but hey if you enjoy something why not talk highly about it right!? Plus AJ, she’s the best we all know that……okay maybe it’s just me on that boat, but with all of that seeing as though this is very long, I won’t keep you anymore than I already have, I hope you enjoyed this post, I felt it to be a good distraction.
P.S. I wrote this all last night, but wanted to add photo’s to it so that’s why it’s being posted today, so Sunday’s post is now Monday’s post.
What are some of your favorite things at the moment!?
This one was inspired from one of my favorite video game series, Animal Crossing, there’s a cafe called the Roost in the game and so I went and created my own little cafe or just a place to “Chill & Relax”
By the way this creation here now has a backstory to it, that I won’t forget nor will ever live down……*sigh* I seriously don’t know how I messed that up……..you guys are probably wondering what i’m talking about right!?
Good because i’m not telling you, it’s a secret…….while I leave you guys maybe wanting to know what the backstory to this is, I shall leave this 4th creation unnamed, at least until I come up with a good name for it……
Now it may not look like much to a lot of you, but I like to think of it as a calm, yet pretty simple place that i’d say has pretty nice Coffee and Tea, especially green tea and wild berry, but that’s just me…….
P.s. I don’t actually really like wild berry, but some people might, I know one person that does for sure, green tea and peppermint is where it’s at for me though, they’re so good!!
Now that’s something I can do, although there’s times where I just want to shut my brain off, but doing that for just one second, is impossible, it’s like your brain forbids you from doing so…….
The minute you start to think about something, just one little thing, that’s it you’ve step on a bobby trap and now you’re going to be thinking for the next few hours, how great, I mean who doesn’t love thinking to the point of no return, I know I do……no but seriously sometimes I wonder why it is we think, not that it’s a bad thing, it’s just sometimes it can be a whole lot to deal with, especially when your emotions decide they want to get involved.
It’s like no, this is not a party, I already have all these thoughts coming in unannounced, I don’t need you here too emotions……like why is that a thing!? Why does thinking become so intense to the point where you want to just throw all your emotions at someone or at the window, I mean if we could wouldn’t we through our emotions out the window!?
I mean I might, but then I guess if you do that, you just won’t feel anything……even though it can be a pain to feel, sometimes we need to feel emotions that way they become easier to deal with and to process, although when you really think about it, it’s not always easy processing emotions……
Sometimes they end up having a mind of they’re own and then your forced to try and control them as best as you can, which isn’t always easy either…….but I tell you if thinking was some kind of contest, let’s face it we’d all be winners, even though some of us think more than others, so I guess there would be some kind of tournament for it, which makes me wonder…..
What kind of thinking tournament would it be!? Would we have to think on all things bad or maybe we’d think of fond memories, it could be a gauntlet of things who knows…….as you can tell i’ll be here thinking for a while…….
At least I have tea, just in case I start to feel stressed out or something…..
Calm stressing that’s a thing right!? Can it be a thing!? If you’re asking why i’m asking this well then, i’ll just say, just wondering…..
No, but seriously is it possible to calmly stress!? i’m not saying that i’ve been calmly stressing, because that would be false if I said that, my morning did start out roughly it’s about 1pm where I am and i’m still having toast and coffee and just for good measure, I have a cup of tea next to me as well.
Talk about all over the place, no i’m kidding, I always have tea next to me now even if I do have a small cup of coffee…….going back on track now…..
Calm stressing not sure if that’s a thing or not, but today i’ve been on the stress train today, but i’ve been trying so hard to keep myself from letting it overtake me. I’m just trying to think calmly without issue, you know!?
My brain was scattered everywhere you should’ve seen me, i’ve noticed that whenever I feel really stressed or overwhelmed or something, I always feel the need to organize and clean everything and I don’t know why I do that!? Habit I guess, I don’t really know…….anyone else do that!?
I know this post is probably going in a bunch of different directions, sorry about that, i’m just pretty much everywhere at the moment, but i’m doing my best to be calm about it and not overly stress……..but yeah……..
I don’t really have much to say, I was just curious on whether it was possible to stress calmly, but come to think of it, if your stressing chances are it won’t be in a calm way, you’re just trying to keep calm during a stressful manner, which in a way means you’re calmly stressing……right!?
Update:it’s now 2pm and I still have the coffee, tea and toast…..
