Happy First Day Of Autumn!!

If you haven’t already noticed, We have said farewell to Summer and have welcomed the Autumn season, So far it’s been what you would expect the fall weather to be like, it wasn’t too hot today, I saw a few leaves falling earlier and the air has come down in temperature a bit which is good, the past few days, well weeks shall I say, has been pretty darn hot, so now that we’ve entered the fall season, at least we can say the air will become a lot more cooler!

We might still get a bit of hot weather, even though it’s officially fall now, but I say give it another week or two and you’ll see just how cool the air starts to get, then again I can be wrong and we’ll be feeling heat for a bit longer mixed in with cool weather as well, which of course we all love *Sarcastically speaking* in all seriousness though, I love the fall season, I’ve probably mentioned that so many times on here before, I don’t know what it is exactly, but there’s just something about this season that gets me so happy!

I just love the feel of it, I enjoy seeing the way the leaves on the trees change from green to red’s, yellows, orange and browns! My favorite is when they dry up, this may sound a bit weird, but I love making little bouquets with the leaves, I have a big square vase with a lot of dried up leaves in it that I’ve collected and sorted together, it’s like having a vase full of flowers, but with leaves instead, I love it!

Another thing I love about Autumn is being able to wear fall clothing, like sweaters, cardigans and boots, I don’t know why, but fall clothing has got to be one of my favorite attires to wear, I love wearing short sleeves in the Spring which is my other favorite season, but there’s just something about being in a sweater and wearing a cardigan that just feels right…..I guess it’s because they give you that cozy feeling and who doesn’t love that!?

I wish I could say more about the fall season, but I guess we can just keep it short for today, plus I feel like today is not a day for a long post anyway, I’ve been trying to write all day and I did write something, but for some reason I’ve been having trouble explaining what it is I was trying to write so it’s not really finish, I’ll try and see if I can explain it better within a few days, it might end up being a podcast episode instead of a post who knows, it’s just been a very productive non productive day and very interesting as well!

Hope you all have been having a good Wednesday and enjoyed the beginning of Autumn, although short and sweet is nice, sorry if this one was a little too short!

P.S.

The Journey Of Learning & Growing….

One of the best things to witness is watching someone grow and evolve, be it a child, someone that you saw go through a very tough point in their life or even just you yourself, there’s no age limit when it comes to learning and growing…..you could be in your 50s and you may already know a whole lot, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still learn something new let alone won’t learn something new, there’s so much to life that will always leave us surprised even when you think you’ve seen it all already!

I’ve witness a few transformations, a lot of them may not be fully, but I’ve seen a few and the ones I have seen, still amaze me and sometimes I find myself thinking about those transformations, I’ve watched my boyfriend come out of something that he struggled with for a while, not necessarily in person, but just the aftermath of what happened in his life in that time, it’s how we met, he was just starting to get back to himself again! I’ve seen my nephew who I consider my nephew, I first met him when he was 3, so I’ve only known him for a year now pretty much and I remember how he’d never wanted to listen to anyone, you know usual kid stuff, his favorite word was always NO and you couldn’t tell him anything, without him crying and throwing tantrums and wanting everything to be his way

and then you have his mom who worked all the time and when it came to trying to stop him from having those tantrums it was hard for her to put her foot down with him, obviously no parent wants to yell at their child, any good parent anyway, it’s hard because you try to be a parent, but you also don’t want to be a parent in a sense of when your child starts throwing those tantrums and they aren’t listening to you, you don’t want to have to punish them for it, because all you want is for them to see you in the best light possible and when you come to those moments to where you know there needs to be rules……it can be hard, but sometimes you know you have to do it!

But back to what I was talking about…..all three people here have gone through big transformations and you wouldn’t believe it if I told you, my boyfriend one of the biggest transformation I’ve ever seen and also haven’t seen, but if you knew him when I met him and you were to see and learn about everything he endured, you’d be extremely surprised, it still surprises me when I think about it sometimes, just to see and learn the difference in the person that he once was to who he is now, like I wouldn’t know where to begin on that story, hopefully I’ll be able to really tell it or have him tell it one day, I mean it is story about his journey anyway and it really is a beautiful and life changing one at that! I’m very proud of how far he’s gotten, I love you Jord, forever and always!

As for my Nephew…..he’s 4 now, but will be turning 5 in November and let me tell you something, he is one hell of a smart kid, seriously and he’s gotten a lot better at really trying to understand everything, he doesn’t give you too much of a issue now when you are telling him not to do something or you’re trying to help him learn certain things, he actually listens expressing something to him which I’m glad to see, it was a mission and a half when I first met him, he talks a whole lot more now, like a lot, he wouldn’t really say much before, he was just always shy and wouldn’t come up to you, he’d just be in his own little world, now forget about it!! He will talk to you for hours if he really wanted to, he’s quite the character, very silly, but he’s the sweetest boy every, he’s very kind, he likes making people laugh and just showing you things all the time, buut don’t let his adorableness fool, he knows what he’s doing!

He’s a little demon and I say it all the time to him, which he knows too because he always laughs about it! He knows how to get what he wants, however he knows who to go for when he wants something, spoiler it’s not me, he knows better than to pull anything with me, like I said he’s a smart one, I wouldn’t be surprised if he turned out to be an evil genius, I’m joking, he’s a good kid when he wants to be, but he’s also grown to know better and I just hope that continues the older he gets!

Lastly, we come to my Nephew’s mom who has also transformed a lot from when I met her, she’s kind of hard to explain with her transformation though, but I’ll do my best, when I first started coming around and hanging out with her, she was always working, but she worked from home, so she always tried her best to balance out work and her son and when I was hanging out with her as she was working, I would notice a lot that she was having to do, when it came to her son like I said earlier it was hard for her to put her foot down with him at first, because she didn’t like having to be that….not strict parent, cause she’s really not that strict, but he’d would get babied a lot before, he still does, but it’s not so much from his mom these days, but the grandparents…..you know how that goes!

It was hard for her to tell him when he was doing something wrong and when it came to punishment so that he learns that he can’t do certain things, with work she was always stressing, she dealt with a lot….I guess the only way I can say it is her transformation comes from how she’s grown as a parent from when I met her and what I know her to be now as well as how certain parts of her personality has changed and grown, she’d always wanted to please everyone even when she didn’t want to do whatever it was that she didn’t want to do, she’s showing more of her voice with people,

Which is good and she would always feel like nothing was going her way, but now everything is now working for her which is great, in terms of her son, she’s learn to put her foot down with him more and not let him try and control her and what I love about that is, I feel since then, both her and her son have gotten more closer and it’s a beautiful things to see, because you can tell she loves her son and only wants the best for him and that’s how parent should be and he loves her which is also wonderful! I’ve witness what she had to go through before and I’m so proud of her for how far she’s come even if she doesn’t know it, she’s an amazing mom and an amazing person, as well as a really good friend and I’m glad that I got to know her and continue to get to know her, fun fact, we’ve crossed paths before me and her a few time even, but we never actually encountered one another face to face just always by a pass by, it wasn’t until she started dating my brother to where we finally met, I guess you can call it a small word!

The three people I just spoke about all mean something to me and I’m glad to know them and have them apart of my life, I’m glad that I’ve been able to experience the transformations they’ve gone through, they all have taught me a lot of things as well as important lessons and are still teaching me a lot even if they don’t know it necessarily, but I wouldn’t trade them and all that they’ve taught me for the world and if ever down the line our journey’s together were to take different paths or transform in some kind of way to where I still have them in my life, I’m always going to take what they’ve given me and do my best to make sure I never forget it!

F.Y.I. I didn’t expect to write all of this, the way I did, I just felt very strongly to write this for some reason so I did, call it a moment of a thought in time!!

P.S.

By the way, I’ve switched up my podcast episode schedule just for this week, so instead of Monday, Wednesday and Friday, I’m doing Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday (I’m going to try for Saturday anyway) again just for this week, I just felt like switching things up a a bit!

Just Another Manic Monday….

Okay so it’s not really a manic Monday, I just wanted to quote The Bangles song, I went to double check to make sure it was The Bangles I was quoting….we’re good, Good Morning by the way! Hope everyone is enjoying their 4 day weekend, I say 4 because everyone knows once Friday hits, it’s automatically considered an extra weekend, I’ll never understand why we only have 2 days during the weekend, like we have a full week to be as productive and busy, if you like busy as you can be and then the only rest time you have is Saturday and Sunday!? No wonder everyone adds Friday to the weekend days!

I remember when I was younger I’d always think “If there was an extra day added to the weekend and we had 8 days of the week instead of 7, what would we name it!?” and I would try and come up with some weird name for it, but it never felt right, although I do like mashing up words together, but it was very hard coming up with a third day to the weekend and trying to figure out a name for it, so I guess making the rule that Friday is both apart of the week and weekend, I’d say that was a good call, we don’t always need more days in the week, 7 is just fine!!

I hope that those celebrating Labor Day are having a nice relaxing day, if you’re out and about running errands or maybe you’re on a nice vacation, I hope you’re enjoying yourself and that it’s not too hectic, I mean we all know how holidays can get right!? If you don’t celebrate Labor day, I just hope everyone is having a good day overall and that it’s going well for you! I got up at my usual time this morning which is around 8am and I sat outside for about an hour, did you know that during the earliest mornings, you’ll find that it’s the most peaceful!? Especially during a holiday, it’s true!

If you ever go outside, be it for a walk, or just to get some fresh air, just take a moment to listen to everything, without saying a word….you’ll be amazed to how nice it sounds! Sometimes we don’t really have a lot of time to enjoy the day because we’re always doing something, always busy, but when we finally do, it’s important that we take advantage and do our best to embrace certain moments, even if it is to just listen to the birds and see them fly by, maybe hear the cicadas sing loud during the fall, even though they’re only supposed to be around for the summer, but hey I guess they stick around for longer after a while…..but however you choose to enjoy the day, don’t forget to just take in a bit of fresh air and have a listen to what’s around you!

Up And Early….With Some Thoughts!

Good Morning! Happy Saturday hope you’re all having a very nice and relaxing weekend or just a nice weekend, if you’re up and running around today! I got up a bit early today for no reason, but then went back to sleep for a while, originally when I got up it was about 7:48am I believe, I had a feeling it was early the first time I got up, I just didn’t know it was that early and when I went back to sleep and got up again, it was about 8:26am! I tend to get up around 8am anyway so that’s my usual time of getting myself up, if my body wakes me up early….I’ll get up about 7am and will stay up during that time if I feel I can’t get back to sleep or I’m just feeling like an early bird!

but if I’m just getting up early for nothing, I’ll randomly find myself up between the times of 2am, 3am, 4am, 5am & 6am, lately though the earliest of early of me getting up will be about like maybe 5am or 6am tops the other times are only when I have too much in my head and I have trouble sleeping…..the latest that I tend to get up or prefer to get up is 9am…..sometimes on rare occasions 10am, but that’s only when I’m really really tired and haven’t slept in a while, it’s not my preferred time to get up, but when it happens I know it’s because I barely slept so I try not to beat myself up when I do get up at that time!

I don’t really know why I’m writing about this so if you’re confused well so am I, sometimes I just write whatever feels like coming out and I try not to question it, but I don’t have a clue on why I just explained all of that to you guys…..don’t mind me! Hopefully everyone’s morning has gone well, I know for some of you out there, it’s probably the afternoon or getting close to the evening time, It’s 10am now as I’m continuing writing this post….when I got up this early morning I sat outside for a bit and was taking a lot of things in, for one….you know we’ve arrived in September cause it’s getting more chilly out, although it tends to be pretty cold in the early mornings anyway, but even when it’d not super early and the suns out beaming all over you, you tend to notice how different the air is and how cooler it’s gotten compared to the other days!

You know it’s September when you start to see more Crows flying by, before you’d only see them here and there, but the amount of crows I’ve been seeing since September started just by sitting outside is a good amount to count, it’s quite mad! I know I recently talked about doing a lot of thinking about things, which I am, I’ve not stopped thinking recently, there’s a lot going on personally, some a little too personal to share on here, although sometimes I want to, but I don’t for the simple fact of, it’s not everyone’s business, there are things you keep to yourself and there are things you only share with close people…..

Sometimes though, you don’t even want to share it with the people around you either, because you feel like it will only burden them and it’s best to not say anything and deal with it yourself! However it can get a lot to handle and sometimes you don’t know what to do, but you keep trying anyway, even when you know you should probably stop…..and you want to stop, but then just when you think that everything is good…..it comes right back and you’re there having to deal with it again! You keep strong though and you push through!

but life will keep pushing you until you do something and that could either be approaching the situation and facing the music or you leave it alone and sometimes life pushes you, for you to leave it alone or for you to finally say “THAT’S IT, NO MORE” I guess it all comes back to choosing your battles knowing when to fight or to just surrender, lay down the sword and walk away…..sometimes that’s hard because it could mean leaving something that was once important to you behind…..but at some point you have to realize that you can’t fight every battle and you can’t be the one to fix everything! You can be there for people and you help them in the best way possible, but if they refuse to listen and just continuously bring nothing, but drama after drama, you have to think about what’s best for you and your health!

Ask yourself if you want to keep fighting this fight!? Don’t get me wrong some things are definitely worth fight for, like love, happiness and whatever else you feel is worth it! That being said…..there are things that don’t need to always be fought over and if you find yourself stuck in the same old storm and fighting the same battle constantly, eventually you’re not going to have enough energy left to fight or just use for yourself and that’s where you’ll need to worry because without energy, you’ve already lost the battle….so save your energy and use it wisely on what to use it on!

Transitions With Rain….

Good Morning and Happy September 1st! Hope that you all are having a good one so far, it’s a bit mad that August is now over, which means that we’re getting closer and closer towards the cooler and colder days so say farewell to the short sleeves, capris/shorts and beach days, unless you’re planning to go somewhere where it’s summer year round or your moving to a more hotter environment if you are then you can just keep all your summer clothes out and say hi to summery weather again pretty soon! I’ll never understand how people can live in very hot places, I was in PR for a week and a few days back in July and oh my gosh, I could not handle the heat every single day, I was done with it by Day 3 of being there, I wouldn’t be able to live in a place that’s hot all the time, so it always mind boggles me how some people genuinely talk about how their going to move to places like PR or Florida!

Ask me that and I’m like no thanks, I never wanted to live in hot places, I really don’t like Summer that much, some days are fine, but after a while I’m hoping for Fall or Spring to roll around, I love Spring and Autumn, because with Spring it’s not too hot and you can enjoy the weather without it being too much, it’s always breezy during that season and with Autumn…..it’s always just cool, not too cold, you can wear cardigans, boots, sweaters, both Spring and Fall have the right amount of warm and cool and you can’t go wrong with that, might be just me that thinks that, but it’s true!

I probably already spoke about this a few times, but when I was younger I always wanted to go to the UK and visit, not only that, but I always pictured myself living there as well, I don’t know why!? I just always felt a connection with it and so it was always on my Wishlist to go over there and see what it’s like, I still feel that and still hope to go there, plus I always thought that it had pretty good weather, like over there is always just cool weather and that! I know it tends to rain over there a good amount, although I did learn recently that it’s not all of the UK where it rains! I guess we just assume that it’s always raining overseas because it’s what we hear….like I used to think that it always rained in London,

but noo, in England it doesn’t rain as much as people think, it’s actually just in Scotland that it rains mostly and if I remember correctly that’s because they’re closer to the mountains compared to other places within the United Kingdom, it’s quite an interesting thing to learn! England’s weather is similar to our weather though, which is cool, it’s nice knowing that it’s both the same and different at the same time! Don’t really know why I’m taking about the weather over in the UK, I guess it was in my mind and so I thought I’d let it out!

Let’s talk about September that was the whole point of this post anyway right!? It’s a weird start with a September for me anyway, although now that I’m thinking about it, I kind of have been feeling like that with these past few months lately, them being weird and all, not sure why, but today specifically started off weird, I woke up feeling fine and then emotions started coming to me and fear crept up on me, right when I was about to record a new podcast episode, I have no idea why it happened, but I did push through after I gave myself a bit, but it was just very weird, I recorded the episode and even talked a bit about what I was feeling and other things, I’m debating on whether or not to post it, but I feel seeing that I’ve got and mentioned it in this post that I might as well go through with sharing it!

I feel like September is going to be another odd month, but I also believe that it will hold something good and unexpected and that we shouldn’t give up on it too quickly, I mean it just started so it’s best to keep our heads up and look for the good that it has in store or at least expect what is coming without expecting it if that makes sense!? Pretty much just keep a look out for it, but still try and keep yourself productive and slightly busy and whenever it arrives you’ll be both happy and a little surprised as well, sometimes that’s the best experience!

Update:

Here’s my new podcast episode, it’s got a mixture of both August and September thoughts as well as some other things!

Let's Talk: A Bit Of August and September (Plus Some Personal Thoughts) Ep. 36 Daydreamer's Podcast

Happy September 1st everyone, hope all is well! In today's episode we discuss quite a bit, it's kind of a weird one! There's some thoughts about the month of August and how it went, as well as how the start of September is going! I've also shared some personal thoughts both with the start of this month and in general, a lot of different emotions going on in this episode as well!

Let’s Talk: Spiritfarer

Good Afternoon, hope you all had a very good weekend and that you all were keeping safe as well with this Tropical Storm turned hurricane, turned back into a Tropical Storm again which I just looked into a few minutes ago by the way!, We were meant to get a lot of wind with the storm named Henri, but it ended up weakening and just giving us a lot of rain instead this past weekend and were informed a good amount of times of very bad flooding, so if anyone received a lot of flooding during the weekend with Henri, hopefully it wasn’t too bad and if it was I hope that you’re all okay!

I’m hoping you all are having a good Monday though, although we’re getting a lot of on and off rain over here, Monday has been going pretty alright, not too bad! I thought for today’s post we can talk about a video game that I have a few big soft spot for, I don’t always play it and I haven’t played it in a good while, but I still enjoy it and still consider it to be one of my favorite games to play when I do pick it up! Now the video game I’m talking about if you haven’t already picked it up by the title, which I’m sure you have is Spiritfarer…….I remember when I first saw the trailer of this game and I thought it was a pretty cool concept, if you aren’t familiar with what kind of game this is, I’ll try and explain it real quick in the best way I can!

So Spiritfarer is a very unique and beautiful kind of game, It’s one of the games that is a little deep and can really pull at your heartstrings as well….you play as this character called Stella and without trying to spoil it too much, at least I’m going to try not to anyway, but you play as Stella where she becomes the new Spiritfarer and her job is to recruit any Spirits she happens to come across that still has some kind of unfinished business of some sort and invite them to her boat to befriend, help with any request that they are asking for and eventually get them to cross over through the Everdoor (a.k.a. the after life) It’s weird because I didn’t think I’d have a hard time explaining this game, it makes sense when you actually play it and it really is a great game!

I played it to one try it out because I liked the gameplay look of it, but also because in the time I went to play it, I was dealing with a loss and I don’t know this game seemed like the kind of thing to help me understand things better in that aspect and taught me that even though it’s a hard thing to do, we can’t really stop the process of life from happening, but that no matter what, we’re always going to have those love ones there with us even if they aren’t around physically to be there, which I find to be beautiful, now even if you aren’t the most spiritual of person, it’s still a great game to try, you don’t have to believe in that kind of thing to play this game, it can just be a game with a story like all the other games!

For me though, I found that it came around when I needed it most and I’m glad that it caught my eye and that I ended up enjoying it, it really helped me in a lot of ways just like the last game I spoke about called Gris, both those games were like a healing process for me….it took a good while before I started to feel better and the fact that I had these games to help me explore my emotions and deal with them the only way I felt I knew how was great!

Plus the little spirits are adorable, okay one spoil alert, they go from hooded cloaked figures to Spirit animals that help teach you many different things and sometimes you grow a connection with them, even though you know you probably shouldn’t because after they finish their last mission, you’ll have to say farewell to them and that might get you emotional especially when it happens to be one of your favorites, but at least you’d get to hug them before they go (I love doing that) that aside though, the game is beautiful and just an overall well designed game!

I’d definitely recommend at least giving it a try and seeing how you like it for yourself, it’s proper worth it and you can learn a lot from the game and if that’s not your thing, then at least you’ll get to explore and experience something totally different with it, but if it’s not your kind of game overall….that’s completely alright and perfectly fine, not every video game is going to be enjoyed, I just wanted to share on it, it’s one of my favorites and in case someone is looking for a new game to try Spiritfarer is something I’d put out there to get discovered, definitely worth it, you can’t go wrong with it!!

P.S.

The soundtrack to this game is wonderful, Just thought I’d add that in!

Happy National Relaxation Day….

So apparently it’s National Relaxation Day…..I didn’t know that until I went onto Twitter to see Nintendo themselves posting about it with an Animal Crossing post earlier…..you’d think that it’d be easy to relax especially during the weekend, I mean that’s normally when people relax, chill and enjoy themselves, but sometimes relaxation feels like a whole task to master…..there’s moments where I can get into a relaxed state and then quickly I find myself becoming a little uneasy, it sounds a little weird, but I don’t really know how to relax if I’m being honest!

This has got to be one of my most un relaxed weekends that I have had in a very long time…it’s probably my most sleepless weekend too, I’ve just been full of a lot of thoughts lately and I’ve been trying to put them all to the side and not think so much, but it’s not really been easy, I’m not trying to complain by the way….that’s just how I’ve been feeling

All that said, my weekend hasn’t been a bad weekend, it’s just not been my favorite in terms of not being able to relax or sleep properly, other than that it’s okay…..I wish that I had more to say in this post, but I honestly cannot think at all so I’m just going to keep this one short…..I think I’m going to take a couple of days off from writing for a bit, I don’t know, I may not at the same time, although I feel I maybe should just to until I feel better, in terms of energy,

I feel I’ve been going on low energy for a bit now so depending how I feel will determine if I write often, It might not be for as long as I think so if I don’t write tomorrow, I may write Tues and if not Tuesday then Wednesday there is something I have in mind that I want to record for a podcast this week so whatever day that is, I’ll also do a post, I’ll try not to stay away too long, but if I feel that I’m not in the best headspace then I’ll have to allow myself to take the time that is needed before I come back here even though I’ll probably fight with myself on it, we’ll see what happens!

I hope you guys have a good rest of the night and that you’re enjoying your relaxation and that you’re all okay, see you soon!

Here’s my latest podcast episode if you guys want to check it out: *quick update…..I missed spelled the name of the artist, I fixed it, but some of it is still there…sorry lol*

Now Playing….Trampoline By Shaed (Feat Zayn) Ep. 33 Daydreamer's Podcast

Happy Friday Everyone! Hope that you're all well, in today's episode I thought we'd change up the energy and talk about some music, I'll be discussing the song Trampoline by Shaed featuring Zayn and sharing my thoughts on it, as well as the original version, this song has been in my head for a while and I just felt like talking about it!

Let’s Talk: Favorite Summer Movies….

Goood Morning Everyone, hope your days been going well so far! We’re coming close to the end of Summer as well as this month, although this month has made me all confused, the fact that it’s just now gotten to the middle of the month feels very weird, I’m writing this post on the 12th of August, you might be wondering why I’m saying that, it’s because this post won’t be posted today, also I don’t know if it’s just me, but this week has felt like it’s taking a bit to get over and we’re only half way there…..but it’s okay we’re going to keep going the best way we can, that’s all you can do!

Seeing that we’re in the summer still, I thought we’d talk about some movies and by movies I mean some favorite of minds, I was trying to do some thinking yesterday and came up with this idea, it’s probably not the first time someone has done it though, but I had this idea (now that I’m thinking about it, it probably was the day before yesterday that I thought about this) I wanted to talk about “Summer movies” but what I consider to be summer movies, if they aren’t considered to be summer movies already! I have 3 movies that I’m going to be sharing upon, one is already a summer movie while the other two I’m going to put them in that category in cases they aren’t, but should be!

First Up: High School Musical 2

Yes I’m talking about a Disney Original Movie here a.k.a DCOM, when I think of Summer movies this is pretty much the one movie that always comes to mind for me, even though I haven’t watched this one in quite some time, it never leaves my mind! High School Musical was one of my favorites growing up and High School Musical 2 is a very well known and loved movie, most people will probably choose this one over the first movie, but some people like the sequels better then the originals, doesn’t mean the originals don’t have love either, it’s just like that at times!

With High School Musical 2, once summer hits, this is the first movie everyone goes to cement the moment of Summer vacation and let’s not forget the famous song that starts it all “What Time Is It!? (Summertime) like that is every kids theme when summer arrives so of course it has to me on my list, plus it’s a good movie and the reason why it’s in my top favorite summer movie list, it’s the kind of thing that gets you pumped, excited and just ready to enjoy Summer….even though Summer isn’t one of my personal favorite seasons….whenever I see this movie, I won’t lie, it can get you in the mood of wanting to have a good Summer!

Up Next: Lilo & Stitch

Okay hear me out on this, Lilo and Stitch is probably one of the most UNDERRATED movies EVER!! It’s crazy though because people remember the movie, they just don’t talk about it enough and that’s my problem, like how can you not love this movie, I just don’t understand!! I’m always thinking about Lilo & Stitch, it’s always in the back of my mind, always and I just don’t get why people don’t see it as a Summer movie, I mean it’s literally set in Hawaii!!? Tell me who doesn’t get hyped over the opening of the movie when they see Lilo in the ocean swimming as the title of the movie pops up and you hear that wonderful song that is Hawaiian Rollercoaster coming in as the scene plays while you watch Lilo rushing to get to her Hula class because she was late trying to feed Pudge the fish his usual PB&J because she didn’t want to give him tuna which is all they had in house like come on…..you got to love it!

And I do, I flipping love this movie, I don’t watch it often, but it’s always on my watchlist, it’s such a beautiful storytelling movie, like if I could explain it I would, but this movie is sooo wonderful, this little girl takes in an alien, that’s actually an experiment gone rogue, because Jumba messed up that she thinks is a dog and she’s raised by her older Sister Nani because their parents passed in a terrible accident…..it’s a heartfelt kind of movie, but it’s so worth watching if you’ve never watched it before, my wording of what the movie is about isn’t probably very good….but the movie is and I would love it, if people both watched and talked about it more, because it deserves our love and attention, hence why it’s in my Summer movie list, I mean why not consider it a summer movie, it’s got all the feels of summer and again it’s based in Hawaii which it’s always summer over there, I mean it is an island after all, just watch Lilo and Stitch, you’ll love it!!

Last, but certainly not least: The Parent Trap (with Linsey Lohan)

Okay so this might already be considered a summer movie, I’m not really sure, all I know is that I enjoy this movie a lot! Now I am aware that there is an older version of the Parent Trap, never watched it though, probably should because I’ve never seen it and I’m sure it’s very good! Anytime The Parent Trap comes on…..I’m always watching it, whatever I’m able to watch of it anyway, I don’t always watch the whole thing, however I have watched the whole movie before though! I must say The Parent Trap has become a little bit of a favorite of mine these days, I don’t know the actual release date of this movie, but from the time it premiered to seeing it now….I’d say it’s aged like a fine wine and I don’t even drink, I just like that saying lol!

Again, I don’t know if people see this movie as a Summer movie, but it should be I mean their at a summer camp at the start of the movie, maybe not at first, but they’re at a camp so if this movie is not considered a Summer kind of movie, then I’m personally going to put it in the Summer movie category, because it needs to be there! I love this movie though, I just love the vibe that it gives off, plus it’s got a love story and I’m quite the hopeless romantic so you know I’m sitting there enjoying every moment when Annie and Halie (however it’s spelled) switch places and full their parents all while trying to come up with a scheme to get them back together again so they can be a family again,

Even the butlers of Annie and Halie’s household’s find love with each other, how sweet is that!? I just love those moments and the fact that they find a way to reunite, mainly because of their daughters, but still, I think it’s adorable, plus The Parent Trap is just one of the best movies if I haven’t said that already, but yeah definitely a summer movie The Parent Trap!

What movies do you guys consider to be Summer movies if not already in that category!?

Math Problem Solved!? Sorta

Good Afternoon everyone, hope you’re all having a nice start of the week so far, we’re nearing the middle of August now, still a bit to go though before we actually approach the end of the month! So I know you’re probably wondering what this post is all about…..it’s sorta math related, but it’s not me complaining about it this time, I mean it’s still not my favorite subject, but this time what I’ll be talking about with math is a little important……to me and I wanted to share on it because I was really happy with myself so that’s another reason I thought I’d talk about it!

Let’s get to what exactly is this math important breakthrough we’re talking upon…..okay so some of you know that Math is usually not my strongest suit I like to wear, I don’t actually wear suits, but if I did I think I’d probably be a nice looking secret agent out there don’t you think!? If we’re talking math however…..well I know it’s one of my weaknesses, I’m not quite the greatest at it, but I still attempt and try to understand it regardless, speaking of that….it’s actually what I wanted to talk about, we all know a good amount on counting money right, I’m sure we all do!

The same question goes for counting coins in replace to dollars as money counting, a lot of people might be able to do that really well….me for a very long time, I’ll admit that counting coins and giving it as money if needed, I always had a problem with that, it was always something I felt to be a little bit of a big challenge to me and yes I know, it’s coins how can you mess up coins….there’s ways, also whenever we’re given coins, be honest no one really sees them as worth much, we see it and we’d rather have someone else keep the coins or we put them in jars and never look at them again, but coins are worthy, it’s just our brains don’t see them as worthy, me well if I see a penny on the floor, I check to see if it’s on heads and if it is I pick it up and if it’s not I turn it over for someone else to find who would like a little luck and that, most of you probably don’t believe in that stuff, but I do!

If someone is having a bit of a tough day, I like to think that a penny that’s turned on heads will catch their attention and bring a little smile to them, who knows, but yeah that’s not what we’re talking about here, I just thought I’d throw that in there….but to the story we go….long story short, I was organizing my bag and well I won’t say I found coins in my wallet, they were always there I just kind of forget about them being there a lot of the time….anyway, I took out the coins and I don’t really know why I did this, but I decided to count them! Now I know the basics of coin counting,

Mainly with the quarters, you know the 25, 50, 75, 1.00 that, but when adding in dimes and nickels to the mix, normally that’s when my brain goes into a sing along of the Night Before Christmas song, where Jack sings about I think the other seasons or when he sees snow for the first time, but just the part that goes “What’s this, what’s this” yeah just that part over and over ooor the High School Musical part of Status Quo, where Sharpay sings “This is not what I want, this is not what I planned and I just got to say, I do not understand….that’s me with adding up coins together!

HOWEVER today was a breakthrough, I even took a math quiz that asked some questions about what coins equaled to the same amount and how much each amount had within the set of coins shown if that makes sense, so “Here’s a set of coins, how much is here” that kind of thing! I sat there and did my best to answer correctly to see if I understood it well enough and guess what guys…..I got it! I got 5 questions in a row correct, my lucky number by the way…..we won’t talk about question 6…..I missed counted…..not by a lot, I just went a little over when I should’ve went lower, had I counted correctly I would have definitely gotten it, but I just didn’t double check, but it’s okay!

I got 5 correct back to back and that’s a new record for me and I am proud of myself for it lol, so proud that I wanted to write about it, but yeah, August 9th, 2021….I figured out and can now say, I know how to count coins, I know you’re probably reading this and possibly went to another more interesting post or may be reading this as if I’m a little mad and wondering why I am excited about it, it’s because even though it’s a small thing, I still consider it both an achievement as well as an improvement in my math skills, I’m still not the greatest with math, but for me I see it as a step closer to getting a little bit better with it and it’s important to try your best to improve on the things that you may not be that great at, it doesn’t matter how big or small it may be a little improvement is still a pretty big achievement!

So remember don’t think small things aren’t important, if it makes you happy and you’re enjoying yourself and feel proud of yourself for it, then go right ahead and celebrate those small victories, they’re just as important as the big ones!

Sooo I also recorded this post as an episode, it’s similar with a slight different thought approach, it’s pretty much a shorter version of the story in case you don’t feel like reading this lengthy post!

Don't Stop Improving or Believing….Ep. 31 Daydreamer's Podcast

Happy Monday, hope you're all doing alright! In today episode, we just chat a little about self improvements and being happy and proud of yourself on any kind of achievement that you come across including the small moments in life, we always focus on the big achievements that we have in life, which is great, but it's okay to embrace and feel happy about some of the small moments that we get as well, they too can be pretty important!!

Honestly….I Want To See You Be Brave (Title May Change)

There comes a moment, well I guess you can say there comes a good amount of moments in life where you have to make some really hard decisions and sometimes those decisions aren’t always the easiest, most times you’ll find that not a lot of people agree with the decisions you make, but whether they agree with them or not, it’s up us to decide what we feel works best for us and if it’s also healthy for us as well! What I mean by that is if you find that you’re in a situation where everyday it’s always issue after issue and no matter how much you try to make it better, it never feels like it gets anywhere, that’s where the really big decision comes in…..you have to ask yourself is this worth the time and energy am I sacrificing too much of my happiness trying to make everyone else happy!?

Sometimes it’s difficult because you feel like with certain situations you don’t have a choice, especially when say it’s family or really close friends or just anyone you feel a great connection with! If you are the kind of person that always puts everyone else’s needs before their own this can be especially difficult and a bit of a battle to get yourself out of, but once you do get out of it, you’ll start to find yourself getting more and more better and you’ll also start to become happier because you’re not having to always please people, you might have moments where you feel slightly guilty, but that’s only due to the fact that you’re used to helping so many people out without a single thought about yourself so it’ll feel a little weird at first of course!

However you have to know when to say no and that it’s okay to say no, as hard as it is, it’s important for your wellbeing, if you’re constantly agreeing to everything that someone says or always saying yes when really you mean no, you don’t give yourself that proper attention that is needed and when you know you have no energy left, yet you still try and give everyone what their asking you for…..it’s just going to be this endless cycle only you’ll be the one without energy while others knowing they have their own energy, continue to take all of yours!

You never want to allow yourself to enter that cycle, but then you ask yourself, how do you know you are in that situation!? Sometimes it all goes based off feeling, so if someone askes you for something or to do something, whatever the question or situation is and inside you feel like it’s not right or maybe you just don’t want to do it in that moment, yet you do it anyway because you’re being asked that’s the first sign of it’s okay to say no when you feel it to be no…..as for situations alone, you have to know which ones are worth putting yourself into and which ones are best to stay out of, it’s not always an easy thing to do, but for the best shield for yourself,

Don’t know how else to state it….it’s important to be aware of and if people choose to scold you for wanting to stay away from all the drama and not wanting to be around them because it’s never a good moment or there’s always something then just a genuine let’s spend time together or conversate and all that jazz, then those are the people you want to keep at a distance, if they can’t respect that then you’re best to just keep to yourself and look towards filling your circle with better surrounding people that you know will keep your energy high and not the other way around, the people who really care will always support you, even if they maybe don’t agree, a good support system will always encourage you to just go out there and do your best and will always want to see you happy!

I express a little more on this topic in my latest podcast episode, it’s a bit lengthy, but I felt it was important and wanted to share on it, if you would like to have a listen, check it out:

Wind Of Change….(Personal Thoughts) Ep. 30 Daydreamer's Podcast

Happy Wednesday! Hope you're enjoying the day…we've reached episode 30….wow! In today's episode, we go a bit personal with it, I had a lot of thoughts that I wanted to share with this episode and it's pretty much based on a situation that I'm dealing with currently! I don't normally share on personal issues, but I felt I wanted and needed to say some stuff and so this episode might be a little heavy topic wise, but I try to keep it a little light as well, without all the extra details so it's not all that bad, just some thoughts…  

All The Love ❤ ❤
