Hello :)

Hey guys :D
How have you all been? :) 

It's been a while since I've last posted but I'm back and feeling more empowered then ever! But first...
Please just take a minute to listen to adele's new song Hello!! I promise that you won't regret it! That woman is pure genius and I am typing this as I am listening to it and I - I just can't I just can't sit here and not share this with you guys because I'm crying, because her voice! That voice <3 It mends my heart :') and it just has so much power and passion and emotion and I'll stop talking. She has risen. *crying emoji*



So I think we all know how stressful school can be :'( I've been busy with homework, after homework, after homework, and just when I think I've finally caught up I get another curve ball thrown at me.

On top of that I've been trying to work on my health. I've been so stressed and anxious about my future lately, but I think I've come to terms with not having control of everything. And as Rainbow suggested in her amazing blog post (Check it out here) it's okay to not have control of everything. It's much more important to take things at your own pace. So I've taken control of the things that I can control. I applied for a job :D and I got it!! So I'm so excited about that, I've been worrying about not having money in my bank account. Now I know that money shouldn't be a problem, of course I have my parents and I know that they would help me out with whatever I need, but it's also time that I start doing things on my own. I need to not be so dependent on them because in about two weeks I'll be 19 and that's one year closer to 20 :O. I'll be done with my teen years and now I'll be an actual adult! So I need to gain some independence and confidence. I've been putting off getting a job for a while now because I was scared that after I got a job it was like I officially grew up. Now I've had a job before but it didn't really feel that different because it was at the dorms where I was living last year so it didn't really feel like a "job job" to me. But now it's official and I think I'm ready this time :) 

One technique that I've found really helps me out is listening to music. It seriously does help! I like to just lay in bed, turn off my lights, turn on my christmas lights and just listen. I listen to the music and I listen to myself. And I let myself feel whatever it is that I need to feel. I also focus on my breathing because improper breathing is the number one contributor of anxiety and stress. I also found that whenever I'm feeling anxious it always helps to listen to a guided mediation in my car before going on about my day. It really helps to bring the anxiety levels down and get my breathing on track.

Some other updates :)

  • I was published in my schools news paper :D Which was really exciting! I wouldn't say I'm a great writer but I made it on their so yay :D 
  • I also finally finished a video that I've been trying to finish for about 2 weeks now haha. I hope you guys enjoy :) 


I hope you guys are all having a great week!! <3 

I just wanted to let you guys know that if you would like to stay in contact with me or see what I'm up to when I don't post, I'm always on my social medias which are all linked on the right hand side of the blog. I will warn you though, if any of you decide to add me on snapchat... you may regret it. I may or may not be that one person who posts about 300 seconds of videos ':D sometimes daily and sometimes continuously haha. But I love snapchat <3 So I'm always on there :) 

What made you smile this week? :)

September Playlist - On My Mind

Wednesday, October 7, 2015

Hey Guys!! :D 
I feel like I haven't really had time to make posts lately. I've been flooded with assignments and it's midterms so I've been having to make sure to turn all my assignments in, make sure everything that needs fixing is fixed, and studying for tests *crying emoji* 

I seriously can't wait for the fall semester to be over because I already need a break :'( . But it's okay I'll power through it, plus it's finally fall :D and the weather has actually started to get nice around here. Although I think it's supposed to get up to the 100's again next week :'( So I'll enjoy it while I can :) 

Fall and Winter are my favorite seasons!!! Halloween! My Birthday! Thanksgiving! Christmas! New Years!, and Valentines day! <3 

But without further ado. Here are some of my favorite songs that I've been listening throughout September and currently in October :) 



Now I don't know if I'm just really uncoordinated when it comes to time periods but this song has me feeling like I've gone back in time to the 50's/60's, basically the movie Grease era. These woman have amazing voices and they never fail to hook me with their music <3 



As soon as I heard this song I was hooked. I couldn't stop listening to it and I've had it on replay ever since. I probably jam out to this song numerous times as I'm heading to school or even just here at home really. 


I just love the beat in this song so much. I heard about it just the other day but I had to include it because it's definitely one of my favorites. 



My dad actually introduced me to this song, which isn't something you hear quite often haha. He told me that his cousin was actually friends with the rapper, Futuristic. They were even roommates :O   :D. That's so cool! When my dad showed it to me I instantly loved the song and it has now been on replay ever sense. That's the bad thing about me though, I will replay a song a million times until I get tired of it and won't be able to hear it for at least a couple of years haha. 



I have to pay a little tribute to my Latin blood this month because I haven't been able to stop listening to this song. It's just so good!! If you've never heard a song in Spanish, let this be your first one :D

Infinity - One Direction


I couldn't find a video to this one that worked :'( but this song is just so beautiful :') and amazing <3 and I can't wait for their album to release!! <3 I don't think this really needs and explanation ;) If you have a chance to listen to it, I definitely suggest it :) 



Basically. I love me :D How can you not love this song! It sends such a good message about loving yourself and not needing anybody else to do so. Because you are strong and you are beautiful, so love yourself <3 



I'm just so sick of that same old love, you know? 

and here are some of the older songs that I've had on repeat this month. These songs basically never get old and their my go to jam songs for my route to school because I just love singing along to these songs with so much emotion and what better time to do so then when you're alone in a car. 
P.S. While keeping my attention focused on the road! You should always keep your attention on the road! I don't care if Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston is playing you pay attention to that road DAMNIT! 


I hope you guys enjoy these song suggestions :D I've been loving them A LOT! So I hope you guys can find at least one song that you enjoy :) 

What have you been listening to on repeat lately? 

"Love yourself. Without your flaws, you wouldn't be you."
