Happy Saturday, hope you all are having a good day!! Now I know that I haven’t properly talked about this so I thought I’d have this post be the introduction for it…..a late introduction, but an introduction nonetheless!! Now in case a lot of you don’t already know I went ahead and created a podcast, some of you may already know if you’ve read some of my latest posts, but if you didn’t…..I have a podcast now, it’s called Daydreamer’s Podcast and I created it out of curiosity, I was actually writing a post and had just finished posting that post when I saw an opportunity to be able to turn a post into a podcast episode and so that’s exactly what I did, so I kind of have WordPress to thank for giving me the idea of creating one, I only have 2 episodes right now, but so far I’ve been enjoying myself,
I have found that I actually get pretty excited to record the next episode, which is something that comes rarely for me, but this is something I kind of been wanting to do for a bit of a while now, I tend to talk quite a bit and sometimes a lot of the things I want to share can be too long to write in a post and so I thought this was the perfect thing to give a try, It’s something I’ve always thought of doing and it’s something that has literally presented itself to me and why not give it a shot!!
Now the content to my new Podcast is going to be a bit of everything in the sense to the way I do it here on my blog, it’s pretty much interest based, so for example music, video games and sometimes serious topics that I feel I want to share upon and discuss a bit about…..sometimes I’ll even incorporate some blog post topic for the days where I feel I want to express a bit more, the two episodes that are up now were based off two blog posts, but it’s stuff like that! I just want to create a place that everyone can just hang out and hopefully have a good time!! I already recorded a third episode which should be up pretty soon, but if you guys are curious and would like to check out the last two episodes of my podcast, that would really mean a lot to me, you can have a listen to both episodes here:
For those who do manage to check it out the podcast, first I just want to say I appreciate it in advance and I hope you all enjoy the episodes that you decide to give a listen to, with that said, Welcome to The Daydreamer’s Podcast, I’ll be your host, Alexa, but you can just call me Lex or Lexa, I prefer it anyway! I hope you’re all able to enjoy the content and atmosphere that I do my best to bring to this podcast, hope I can get some of you to hang around and stay a while!! ^_^
I can’t believe it! New Horizons has came to a year of being released…..I remember watching the trailer for this game and how excited I was knowing we were getting another Animal Crossing game, the last game in the series was New Leaf and when Nintendo announced we would be getting a whole new experience with it I couldn’t wait to play it!! Originally it was thought to come out back in 2019, but it ended up being delayed and pushed back to 2020 of March on the 20th, when learning that my first thought was…..it would’ve been cool if it was in February, because then it would’ve came out February 20th, 2020 (2/20/20) that would’ve been something….March wasn’t a bad month for it to come out either, don’t worry I’m not complaining or anything, I just thought it would’ve been cool that’s all!
Knowing that we were getting a New Animal Crossing game was the important thing, I’ve been a fan of this game for a very long time, played it on the Gamecube, Wii, 3DS and now I’m enjoying it on the Switch and I couldn’t be any happier, I love the game, it’s one of my all time favorites, it’s my top played game actually haha!! I also got two Islands, so you know it’s a favorite of mine.
(I haven’t quite been on my second Island in a hot minute….I’ve got my reasons okay nothing against the game or my villagers there…I just think it was time to focus on my main Island, plus I both wanted and needed to give it a bit of love sooo)
Back to the post…although the game came out on March 20th of last year, I didn’t start playing the game until April so while most people played it on release day….I started on my Island a month after, but everyone plays at different stages so it’s allll right! To know that it’s already been a full year of this game, is insane, there’s a lot that I have enjoyed with it and playing it for a longer period of time after a while, there’s also a couple of things that I’d say could be improved on now that I’ve played it long enough, however I won’t get to it here, this post is more talking on the good stuff, the celebration of it being a year of gameplay for everyone, as much as I would love to say it all here….I’m gonna wait on it, because I’ve got a better and fun idea for it, some of you might already know and if not you’ll soon see!!
Animal Crossing: New Horizons so far, has been very good, it came to us in a time that we really needed it, with the whole Pandemic being a big issue that we had to take precaution on, everyone was put on lockdown and we weren’t able to come out of our houses for a long while unless we really needed something of course and with not being able to be around friends/certain family members or being able to go to certain places, most of us became bored out of our minds, not only that, but it just became really tough to get through after a while, not being able to leave our houses, in fear of not knowing what would happen or even knowing the risks…..
So for New Horizons to release in the time it did and become our little escape from what was/still is our reality and be that light to help us get through all of this, it couldn’t have dropped at a better time!! Even people who never played, let alone probably never heard of the game, even they grabbed a copy and gave it a try and some of them even became fans out of it, it brought together old and new communities and helped people to de stress and relax for a couple of hours without the worry!! They got to experience something new from it, heck people who were already a fan, like myself got to experience something different with the whole Island introduction of it, making the island how you want (with some limits) but also getting to see the different things that were added that we never had before until this game, so there’s just a lot to thank this version of Animal Crossing for, because in the era that we were forced to be in, this game this game became our Savior in making sure we didn’t lose our heads and allowed us to focus on something a lot nicer and positive for a while!!
Yeah it’s got it’s moments where you get a little frustrated with it, mainly when terraforming and other things, but it’s still a pretty great game overall and I’m glad we have it, so Happy 1 year Anniversary New Horizons, thank you for being our enjoyment and the escape that we needed during this crazy era that 2020 brought, may you continue to bring us great things with this game, now that you’ve got updates!!
Yes I know the anniversary was yesterday, but I didn’t get a chance to write on it and that’s why I’m doing it today, it’s only a day late, it’s the weekend of it, better late than never right!?
Episode 2 of my podcast is now up….it took me a bit to get it up, due to having to re record and look it over, it’s pretty much a part 2 to this post, but this time I give my thoughts on some of my favorite features that’s been added to the game, discuss what I feel needs a little improvement and also give a Wishlist to what I would like to see added in future updates, if you would like to check it out, you can take a listen here: Let’s Talk: 1 Year of Animal Crossing New Horizons
So as you all may know, i’m a pretty big fan of the Animal Crossing series, it’s one of my favorite games EVER!! I pretty much play it more than any of my other games to be fair and i’ve got a few i’ve still yet to start…..but today we aren’t talking about the game itself, but the music of the series, well more like K.K. Slider songs, because who doesn’t love K.K. Slider!?
Now some of you might remember, but if you don’t I actually wrote a first part to this three months ago which I just looked at and it turns out that uhhh….that was yesterday so the fact that i’m writing the second part to this today is a little crazy, the timing is a little late, but only by a day……but if you want to read the first list of my favorite K.K. Slider songs you can find that here: 3 K.K. Slider Songs I Never Get Tired Of (Songs From Animal Crossing)
On to the second part of this list, this list might actually be a little different, because instead of it being songs I never get tired of, it’s going to be K.K. Slider songs that i’ve either grown to like or are also some of my favorites that I didn’t get to talk about before……are you ready for this, I hope so because we’re about to begin starting with……
By the way this list is in no particular order or anything, the reason I started with K.K. Bossa though is because I have this one playing in my characters room so I thought let’s start with that one first!! How can I explain K.K. Bossa…..well I like this one because it’s very relaxing and has such a nice sound to it, there’s just something about it that I can really appreciate and it’s actually become one of my favorites, it’s just a good song!!
Next Up……K.K Stroll
Okay so this one was one of those songs that I didn’t mind, but it wasn’t really a favorite either…..however, I gotta say that K.K. Stroll is a song that has grown on me, it’s funny because last weekend when K.K. Slider was in town (on my Island) I requested this song, but I was hoping to find it through the town hall of my New Horizons Island and after looking for it for a good while, I ended up asking K.K. to sing it and long story short the same day I requested this song…….you’ll never guess what song was in the town hall…..yeah K.K. Stroll…..I was like are you serious of course you’d be in the town hall the day I go requesting you…..
All that aside, this one did end up growing on me, it’s a pretty catchy song and also a pretty good one too, would I say it’s a favorite now!? Not really, but it’s one I can also appreciate for it’s catchiness, plus I just feel it to be one of those tunes that just carries your worries away and I like that!!
Last, but not least……kinda……Drivin’
There’s a reason I said kinda……we’ll get to it in a moment, but first let’s talk this K.K. Slider song…..firstly….it’s a new one that was introduced to New Horizons and I think it’s a lot of people’s favorite, the reason it’s on my list is because I love when my Villagers sing it, I said that, but really I love when my villagers sing in general, it’s just so cute and sometimes is at the best or not best moments and it just makes you happy…….but back to the song
It’s actually a really nice song, i’ve found myself humming along to it to myself a few times, just like all or shall I say most of K.K. Slider songs it’s pretty darn catchy and has a very nice groove to it, it might be a favorite actually, I even have it playing near my town hall entrance way, it just fits there which is why I have it playing there, but it’s pretty sweet when my villagers sing along to it as it’s playing, by villagers I mean mainly Roscoe and Tabby they sing the most on my Island, Tabby probably more….but
It’s a good song and I can see and understand why everyone loves it so much!!
Now on to the song that the kinda came from…..
it’s actually a non existing one and is considered an “error” song, but it come from one of the older games of the Animal Crossing Series Wild World and no it’s not Wild World itself, although I have been trying to get K.K. Slider to sing it for me just so I can hear it, but the two times I tried……it didn’t work, but to explain a bit…..when you ask K.K. to sing Wild World, there’s a chance you might actually hear it, but it’s not a guarantee, I think you’ll have to try a few times before you randomly just comes across it……if you do great!!
However if you request it and you find that it’s not quite what you were looking for……he’ll sing, well so far i’ve only heard two filler songs…..maybe it was just one, but I feel like it was two…could be more for all I know, but if he’s not singing the Wild World theme or a song within Wild World…..he’ll be singing a different tune and I can’t tell you which one it is, because it doesn’t “exist” so to speak
When I tried the error song trick I guess you can say, it was the second attempt song the first time trying to get it that was my favorite one and I know how confusing that sounds because i’m talking about a song that you can’t even get from K.K. Slider, but it’s so good that last weekend when I tried the Wild World trick again that when I didn’t get it……I wasn’t actually upset because he ended up singing the song I like anyway, i’m going to have to try and record the song when I hear it, probably from my camera when i’m playing the game, i’d screen record it from my switch, buuuut…..I got no room…..yeah i’m going to have to fix that, because it happens all the time
but even though the song i’m talking about doesn’t technically exist in the Animal Crossing world, I still love it, I can’t actually explain it, but when I hear it probably tonight since K.K. Slider’s on my Island i’ll update this post and share it with you guys, it might look weird, but that’s okay….i’ll also let you know if I do end up hearing the Wild World theme or a song from there
P.S. reason K.K. Slider’s on my Island today is because there’s a bug off happening on my Island tomorrow K.K. usually shows up on Saturday’s, but because of the event he’s there today, which I don’t mind, I just gotta remember to play so I can get a new tune from him also it’s actually my very first bug off event since i’ve started New Horizons so i’m pretty excited for it……not that that’s important, but I still wanted to state it in case it was asked…..
butAs Blathers (the owl who owns the Museum) would say and there you have it…….that’s my list to this part two post, you might see a third part to this….there was a few more songs that came to my head as I was writing this post, I actually ended up moving one of the songs that was meant to be here to be added in the most likely next part……so keep an eye out for it, you never know when it’s going to pop up….probably a month from now like this one here…….but it might also be a little later who knows,
For now I hope you all are having a good Friday and that you enjoy the rest of your weekend, stay well, stay safe and have a good one!!
Alright so I have attempted a few times at writing about Animal Crossing New Horizons and those times…..well……I just never quite finished them, but we will finally go and share some things with it today, now before I go and express on Animal Crossing New Horizons I just want to say that I was planning on writing a different post first, buuut then something happened and this one is going to be first written instead……..
Okay so New Horizons what can I say about it!? Well i’ve been playing this game for about two months now, I started on my Island adventure on the 11th of April even though the game made it’s debut on the 20th of March, for those of you that don’t know or have never played Animal Crossing it’s pretty different from the other Animal Crossing games we had before, however the heart of it hasn’t changed that much, so even though the series has evolved into something different instead of a town, it’s now an island,
the concept and everything that makes Animal Crossing is still there!! Now I can talk a whole lot about this game and the different things with it, but than we’d probably be here all day or so and i’m sure you all have important things to tend to so I won’t do that, I must say one of my favorite things about this game is not only the moments that you’d get from it,
but also the bonds and connections that you develop with your fellow islanders/villagers, it’s odd thing to explain, but if you ever played any of the Animal Crossing games than you know what I mean….. sometimes you find that you instantly are drawn to a villager without really knowing why and so instead of questioning it you just go with it, than you have those villagers that you know seem nice, but don’t really feel a huge connection to so you kinda just keep them where they are, as well as those that don’t really appeal to you all that much (a.k.a you don’t like them)
Then there’s the soft spot villagers/islanders as I like to call them where at first you don’t know what to feel when you come across them and so out of curiosity you invite them to your island so you can get to know them a bit more and you don’t think they’d be someone you’d become attach to or at least feel attach to, but you keep them anyway because you learn that you like them and so after having them around your island for a while,
One day you come across them and they’re having some deep thoughts and you’re curious to what they’re thinking about, could be anything (literally) and as you approach them…..you find that they’re thinking of moving, now in this moment you’re not sure whether to let them leave or have the stay, part of you wants them to stick around, but then there’s that part that…..doesn’t mind if they leave……and so after thinking on it for a bit,
You tell them…..they can go and you feel fine with your decision to have them venture out towards another Island……but then there’s this moment where you’re having a heart to heart and they thank you for being their friend and it’s in that moment you realize…..they truly meant a lot to you and you feel that deeply……..I say all this because well….. I had that moment today with a purple cat that you might all know very well named Bob,
He asked to move today and it was actually a pretty tough decision, didn’t think it’d be, but it was and i’m going to admit it…..I got a little emotional, but it’s because of what he said, I didn’t expect it, but as cheesy and lame as it is, it got me and I felt like such a nerd that a video game, better yet a villager that I never had before made me emotional….like…..WHY BOB!!!
I’m never going to forget this day….but most importantly, i’m never going to forget bob, he’s just a snack loving, bug friending……don’t ask (there’s actually a few of them to be fair) purple cat who was a delight to have on my island and to be honest….i’m going to miss him and his interesting character personality, he was one of my 3 villager move ins after playing for a while and i’m glad I got to get to know him so thank you bob, for being bob…i’m sure i’ll see you around eventually, for now you go enjoy those new snacks!!
Hope you get my letters, I sent two…..but for those who might still be reading, thanks for that, I know this is a weird post, but really this game means a lot to me and if I can express it deeply, I would, but this is long enough so i’ll just end it here, maybe i’ll make a part 2 post…….maybe….
Okay so i’ve had this post held as an idea for a while now and i’ve come close a few times writing it, but I never knew how i’d write on it so I kinda just let it be for a while, now some of you may remember some of you may not, but I actually talked about Blume before and even shared a few of my favorite playlist mixes of theirs, now my favorites tend to go at a rotation
So the ones before are still favorites I just haven’t heard them in a good while, but I should probably explain what Blume is, it’s a Channel that creates playlist of music with different artists featured pretty much, they also have a gaming channel, but I haven’t really explored that realm of theirs properly, I just went on the channel out of curiosity to what kind of games they played in case there was one I caught interest in……..
it’s mainly the Witcher, Call of Duty…..games in that category and although they might be entertaining games for those who are also fans of those said games…..it’s not really my kind of entertainment, so that’s why I hadn’t checked it out, but i’m sure it’s a good channel nonetheless!!
Back to Blume’s music channel though, how do I explain it!? It’s quite ambient if you want to say, although there is a lot more to it, but it’s great if you’re looking for something to listen to, but don’t really want to have too much distraction going on, although it’s great to sing along to songs, sometimes you just want something a little more chilled that won’t make you lose focus or take you away from being and keeping productive
That’s where Blume comes in, the great thing i’d say about his channel is you get a little bit of everything when it comes to their playlists, now I will say that some of the playlists have the same songs in it from prior playlists, but trust me when I say they all fit well with the theme of the playlists created, I think this channel actually creates their playlists by listening to each song that they choose and adding them based on where they may fit!?……if that makes sense……they go mainly on feeling, I think,
I can’t really explain what I mean right now, but just know with each song that you hear within these mixes all fit well with each other!! I feel there’s more that I want to express with this one so……i’m probably going to talk about it as well at some point and see if can make sense in some other way as well…..but yeah this is just a few things about this channel, if you’re interesting in checking out any of the mixes from there, i’ll leave some of my current favorites at the moment that i’ve been listening to non stop:
I’ve been going back and re playing the first recommended mix a lot:
Silence Around –BLUME (I don’t know what it is, there’s just something about this mix that I like)
Shelter – BLUME (This is probably my second favorite)
Rain In Dreamland – BLUME (Now although I haven’t heard this one in a good while…..i’d still consider it a favorite, especially that one song that I played over and over, it’s the first song called Divine, it’s so good as well as the rest of the playlist of course)
Those are just a few of my favorites to listen to that i’d recommend checking out, if you’re curious on the gaming channel they have as well, you can always find it listed within the description or on their channel page, hope you find one you like, if you do manage to check it out!!
I’m finding myself going back and forth through two posts that i’ve pre written, but still yet to post, it’s like I don’t really know what to keep my focus on other than Animal Crossing New Horizons, which by the way (side tracking here for a brief moment) is a REALLY, amazing game!!
Well it’s pretty great anyway, the amazing part might just be me hyping it up just a little bit…..but New Horizons aside……I don’t know what or where to keep my mind on……I don’t know if any of you are having that kind of day as well or have been having those kind of days!?
Speaking of how are you all doing!? How have you been dealing and getting through all that’s been happening!? I know a lot of people are probably finding it a somewhat difficult or maybe a whole lot difficult, maybe some of you are taking it somewhat okay than most people might…..
I know everyone has different ways of dealing with things, I don’t know how a lot of you are getting through this, but hopefully you’re all doing alright and are keeping safe and well, I know it’s not been the most best of days of late, but hopefully you’ve all had something to look forward to, maybe it’s a new video game, book, music, organizing something!? You’d be surprise on what can be a big help to kick up a low kind of mood!!
This isn’t a long post as you can see…..i’m just curious and genuinely want to know how you guys have been getting through all of this and if there’s anything right now that has been not only keeping you busy, occupied and productive, but also just giving you something to look forward to and keeping your minds to not have you think about what’s going on 24/7!?
Okay yeah i’ll admit, this may seem like a weird of a post, but here me out okay, I had this idea after watching (listening) to a streamer, whose stream was already recorded and posted onto Youtube while I was cleaning up my room, in the already streamed video Crystal the name of the streamer that I like watching, although her channel name is called SimplyPressStart on her channel she plays a lot of different games, but Animal Crossing is like the mascot on her channel, I think I actually spoke about her before on here…..
But anyway, in one of the already streamed videos that she recorded she asked the question to what K.K. Slider song is our favorite to listen to and I thought about some favorites when she asked and I thought hey this is a good idea to write or make a video about, I think I wrote it down originally as a video idea and then decided to just write about last night so here we are!! Now I won’t go making this post super long, i’m going to do my best at least, but without further ado I thought i’d share 3 K.K. Slider songs that are both my favorite, but also ones I don’t really get tired of as well.
First Up……K.K. Soul(I picked the Chill Mix, but I love the original as well)
Now you can’t see me, but i’m actually laughing to myself because I can’t believe i’m actually writing about this, but hey sometimes, weirder things happen and I love animal crossing as well as the songs on there, yes their weird, but they’re also quite entertaining……I mean look at this album art that the people who created animal crossing made, they went all out to make animal crossing have it’s own little thing, even with the music…..
You gotta appreciate that man and if you don’t hey that’s cool to each their own, no worries about it!! Now let’s talk why I like this song, 1. It’s just really relaxing, every time I hear it, i’m just like “ahhh such a good song” I could listen to it all day, I love it so much that, say you were to play New Leaf….yes NL I still play it, even though I haven’t been in my town for a couple days now, but if you were to visit my animal crossing home,
You’ll be greeted with this song, because it’s the main song that plays in my animal crossing home, it’s just one of my favorites, can’t really explain why, I think it’s just the soothing and calm sound of it, but I love it!! That’s it….
Moving on to the second K.K. Slider song……K.K. Cruisin’(This is the live version that he sings in the game I believe….)
Well that’s funny as I was about to write on K.K. Cruisin’ the song came on, perfect timing (i’m listening to an animal crossing mix, in case some of you are wondering…..I wanted to get in the mode to write this post….it’s working) anyway K.K. Cruisin’ first check out the artwork for this song, I tell you man, it’s just so good, but why……why!?……actually let’s not question it.
Let’s just admire it for a moment……..Did you take it all in!?
Okay then onto the reason I like this song, it’s very chill….yeah…..just that actually, also there’s a sneeze in it and so some of us Animal Crossing fans, nicknamed it K.K. Sneeze, at least those in the SimplyPressStart community, it’s really great, it’s one of those K.K. songs you can really jam with and get into, this song is actually in my room, room, in my animal crossing game, this song is just another one of my favorites that I can’t actually explain either, I just really like the vibe of it I guess…..
Last, but not least, another favorite of mine……K.K. Disco(This is Disco like the in game song in animal crossing)
Yes I know, some of the album covers are weird, but again you gotta give the creators of Animal Crossing some props I mean, the dedication they put into these non existent, yet also existent songs within the game is just……Magnificent, they really did make this game stand out, I mean it has it’s own album collection……I don’t know any other game that has that!!
That being said, let’s talk about K.K. Disco……..how to explain it, it’s a groovy song and it’s funny because there’s an actual song by K.K. Slider called K.K. Groove……but we’re talking about K.K. Disco and so K.K. groove is going to have to take a backseat on this one……so yeah K.K. Disco,
What I like about it, it’s fun, upbeat and whenever I hear it, it makes me groove and I can appreciate that, it’s a nice unreal track to listen to, I actually at one point had this as my main song in my old Animal Crossing game town, but then it got replaced by K.K. Soul, but even though it’s no longer the main song that plays in my town, it’s still one of my favorites to listen to whenever i’m playing New Leaf, but yeah it’s a really good song!!
That is all the K.K. Slider songs I got, I was going to pick 5, but I thought 3 was a good amount to choose from, also I only really had three songs in mind so there’s that, animal crossing is very interesting, but really great game and if you’re a fan of it like I am, you really can appreciate all that it has to offer, it allows you to just chill out to and destress for a while,
Unless you’re planning something, like where to put a public works project or you know getting frustrated with villagers moving where they feel like, but other than that, Animal Crossing really is a great game to wind down to and just enjoy, I actually still need to download New Horizons, I know it came out last week and i’ve been wanting to play it, but i’m waiting a bit to download it so yeah, i’m excited for it though, i’m sure people are loving it!!
Disclaimer:I started this post Friday, but I just hadn’t gotten the chance to finish it just yet, but i’m going to be finishing it today so……on to the post!!
Well we’ve come towards the end of the week, hope everyone’s Friday is treating them all well and I hope you’re having good weather, it’s pretty cold and windy with a bit of rain, over where I am, although there’s not much rain happening at the moment, but the weather has been pretty gloomy these past few days, Spring should be around the corner soon so i’m sure it’ll clear up eventually, but to be honest…..I don’t really mind the cold,
Somewhat anyway, sometimes it’s too cold for my liking, but i’d say it’s better than being really hot so it’ll do for the meantime…….
Anyway, I thought since it’s the end of the week i’d talk about some of my favorite things that i’ve been enjoying lately, it’s been a while since i’ve done one of these, so I figured why not give a new update on some things that I have been into during this month and past month as well!!
First on the list……..RIME:
First on the list is one of my favorites to where i’d probably say it a second time, i’ve just started playing this game a couple days ago and it’s quite the story I must say, there’s so much to this game that a lot of the time i’m questioning just what exactly is going on, but whenever I play this game, I find myself becoming easily immerse in it, it’s just a really good game!!
I love adventure type games, where you get to explore and do all these different things…..now Rime is the first game that i’ve played that is more open world based, where you get to take your time and explore and see everything without having to automatically beat the game right away,
You’re not having to rush through it, with rime I find you have to have patients, what I like about this game is that it makes you really pay attention and look at everything, if you just play rime with the mindset of wanting to just finish the game, you’re going to miss a lot and I like that it allows you to really soak the world you’re playing in……in ha!!
It’s a game that i’d recommend giving a try and really letting yourself get lost in when you play, now there’s obviously some stuff to it, that can be a bit of a annoyance and it’s more the way the camera can get at times as well as it sometimes carries some lags with it, but other than that, it’s still a pretty top notch game, the stories great, even though i’m still putting the pieces that it reveals together, soundtrack to it is just beautiful!!
It’s just a really enjoyable and all around game that has really become one of my favorites at the moment, so again i’d really recommend it!!
2nd on the list……Dark Chocolate Kit Kats
Yeah probably a very weird and random thing to put on a list, but don’t worry this won’t be long, i’ve just been very obsessed with these lately, it’s just really good, I know that dark chocolate isn’t really everyone’s favorite, because it’s a bit more bitter than regular chocolate, but I really like these, I don’t eat them all time, that would not be healthy, but I must say these are simply the best, probably prefer them over the originals to be honest,
Don’t know why, I didn’t really eat kit kat’s all that often, in fact they were probably pretty low on the list of chocolate’s I liked, but when I tried this one for the first time, I couldn’t really get how good they were out of my head after trying them so yeah they’ve climbed a good few spots on the list.
Last on the list…….Mediative Chilled Music (as I like to call it)
I’m not really sure what it is about mediative music, but it’s soooo soothing and there’s so many different ones to choose from, that it’s ridiculous, but in a good way of course, i’ve been listening to it for a good few months now, but it’s great to have as background noise when you need to re clam yourself, if you’re reading working on something whatever you do really,
It just brings a good feeling with it, there’s one for every category, seriously not kidding, if you need something nice and calm to listen to, definitely try it out, if it’s something you’ve never considered doing before!! Here’s one of my favorites in case you guys are interested, i’ll leave a few actually:
And that is all my favorites at the moment, not that big of a list, but it’s still good, yeah still good…. (says in a stitch voice….sorta) let me know what are your favorite things are at moment, i’d love to hear about it!! Hope you’re all having a good weekend, even though it’s almost over……hope you also had a nice week as well and hope you have a good upcoming one.
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!?
The other day I was watching one of my favorite gaming channels Jacksepticeye (well I watch him quite a lot actually) you might remember me talking about him before or you might not, he’s quite the entertainer, his content is very interesting and he has a very unique and great personality!! He not only plays video games, but he also has original content that is a little more intimate, by that I mean not video game type videos,
but more the kind that make you laugh when you’re having a rough day and need something to pick you up. Some people like him and others tend to stay clear of him because of personality and how weird he is, but I don’t think he’s that bad, but everyone has their own view on things and that is perfectly fine, I still enjoy his content, but anyway……
Let’s talk about the game, I don’t really know how to introduce the game to, because it’s on the serious part of town…..the name of the game is called Missed Messages and it’s a pretty deep and interesting kind of game…..
It’s based around self harm and suicide, but has other things to it as well that is a little more lighthearted, although it is pretty sensitive, so if you don’t want to get into those topics that’s okay, the game does warn you with any possible triggers before playing the game, but for some who are interested in seeing what the game is like, I would say check it out,
I don’t really know how to describe the game, so i’m just going to let it speak for itself, so if you do watch it you’ll understand it a lot better, i’ll leave it in case you are curious to seeing how the gameplay is. It’s actually pretty nice from the looks of it, it’s one of those choice based games to see the different outcomes to the story, but with a deeper meaning to it of course…..
It has a pretty cool art style to it as well, when you first look at it, it’s pretty calming and chilled, but the more you get into the story, it does get pretty intense……but the reason I bring up this game, is the message that comes with it.
It shows you just how much you don’t know, when it comes to someone and what they’re thoughts are, they could seem fine, yet you wouldn’t know that deep down, that’s not exactly how their feeling, unless you really get to know them and just talk to them. People are so used to keeping things bottled in and because they’re so used to it, they have trouble asking for help or just opening up alone about things in general….
We’ve all been there, where if there’s something we’re struggling with or dealing with, we keep it to ourselves thinking we can handle it and adding our problems onto someone else, even though it shouldn’t be a worry or they may not have a problem with you coming to them,
You still think of it as being a burden in a way and so we chose to just keep to ourselves to avoid adding to their problems even if we are secretly needing a bit of comfort or reassurance.
It’s easy to have a simple conversation when it comes to things you might have in common with someone or something random and that……but when it has to do with a problem or something that is hard to talk about that’s when it becomes difficult and where people start to shut down and sometimes that’s dangerous if you’re not careful, in many different ways.
However it isn’t always dangerous, some people just prefer to be alone and stay to themselves, which is fine, there’s nothing wrong with that, but sometimes it’s good to see how people are from time to time, because you don’t always know what they’re dealing with and the kind of struggles they’re going through, even if you aren’t sure what to do,
Just showing them that you’re there if they need you and even sitting with them in silence would probably mean so much, sometimes not saying anything is better than trying to say something, most of the time all people really need is comfort and reassurance and just for someone to be there.
Final Thoughts:Just by watching the gameplay, it looks like a pretty great game to play or check out, I don’t really play games as often as I used to and when I did, it was mainly on my Xbox One or my 3Ds, sometimes my tablet too although I rarely play with it now…..but this game is something I think should be given a try and if you don’t want to play it, i’d say it’s worth checking out, there’s so much more to it than just the art style…….
You get a lot of realness and emotion from it as well, believe me it’s worth the time and understanding with the message that it’s trying to share with everyone, even Jack shares his thoughts on it, as well as knowing that kind of struggle that is talked about in the game, so if you’re willing, seriously check it out, I think you’ll find it very interesting and maybe even helpful too.
Here’s the game if you want to check it out: Missed Messages if it’s too much while you’re watching it remember you don’t have to continue, but if you do continue I hope you enjoy the story and gameplay of it!! If there’s anyone who is having a hard time and wants to talk, could be about anything, music, favorite tv shows or you need someone to just vent to a little, you’re more than welcome to here, i’ll be happy to be an ear for you.
