I started reading Real Artists Don’t Starve this week, and it seems like this book has been meant exactly for me to read it. One of the most important things it reminded me of is how important your thought life is and how what you think affects how you experience your life.
Welcome to the 10 best mini-series
Highly subjective, yes, but personally curated by someone with not too horrible taste that may match yours (or not….)
Let’s start with some of my favorite Youtube videos….
Pretty much anything by Lindsey Stirling is going to be in my favorites, but she has 2 newer videos: Beauty and the Beast and Pure Imagination with Josh Groban (SWOON!)
(If you have time, you should also check out her Phantom of the Opera medley.)
Next, we have singers Julie Koep and Alexander Böhm a.k.a. AlexiBexi (Warning: Burn is an intense song, and not child-friendly)
(They should definitely do a duet I think.)
And who doesn’t love a good Netflix series with a catchy theme song? These are 2 of my favorites. (Warning: The Kimmy Schmidt theme does have a touch of language in it.)
I am also a sucker for a good Disney song. (especially in other languages. Youtube has pretty much any Disney song in any language you could think of.) Now with translations, the quality varies by song and by language, but there are some amazing ones.
(Do you recognize that voice?)
(Thank you, Melilotona for helping me study German. Prost!) But I would recommend checking out KariMeru’s Let it Go translation with subtitles and translation as well.
With this next video, these kids have such presence and I love their enthusiasm.
That wraps up the 10, but here are some honorable mentions: (Note: with the Dr. Who/Call the Midwife/One Born Every Minute Parody, please use your discretion when watching with youngsters.)
If you read this and find some great Youtube videos, please send them my way. Leave a message in the comments. Youtube has so many videos and channels. *I didn’t even mention BlimeyCow, Captain Valor, or that Weird Al has an official channel.
Tune in next week for the 10 people from history I wish I could meet.
In some ways late, life has seemed to stall. My motivation’s dried up. I know it sounds awful, but things have been pretty good all in all. I’ve still been trying to figure some things out, so that’s been interesting. It’s funny how sometimes life can feel like nothing makes sense where at the same time it seems like things are in the works.
So keep on trucking everyone. And if you need an ear to listen, I’m here for you.
Waiting is tough, y’all. Having so many dreams, but being afraid nothing will ever come of them. It does not come easily for me, but I guess it doesn’t for anyone really; right now I’m kinda stalled again with the two biographies I’ve been working on. I’ll keep y’all posted though if there are any new developments in the writing world.
On a happier note, summer is upon us. That means we get to go swimming right? (That’s my favorite part of summer)
So today’s been one crazy-@$$ day. Woke up early as usual. At least my throat wasn’t hurting. But allergies were acting up. I was just feeling kinda blue. Lately, I feel like I haven’t really had anybody to rely on; like I had to be the strong one, and lately, my dad’s been annoying the crap out of my for some reason (Sorry, Dad!) But I just really haven’t felt like talking much with him. I mean, what is there to say? All he cares about is guns, and he doesn’t even seem to listen to what I’m saying sometimes anyway. And if I dare to get upset in the slightest, he gets on a high-horse and tells me not to be upset; also, he doesn’t know how to handle me if I’m not “Ok” (Yes, I’m being the ugly daughter for a moment, but that’s the end of the digression) But yeah, I was just feeling blue, and had to go into work anyway. So work today wasn’t too bad, just the usual running around like the proverbial beheaded chicken. And my feet still hurt. But near the end of the day, one of my dear coworkers gave me a pin that said “Best Seller”; I’ve already put it on my lanyard. That made my day! On the drive home, I find out my aunt is coming over tonight, and 3 of the rooms in our house are a mess. My mom’s gonna be freaking out when she gets home from her surgery-filled day. (She’s a veterinarian.) So that’s how my day’s been so far, and it isn’t even 17h00! I should be signing off soon to feed the dogs and go be productive. I know this is more of a journal entry than blog, but at least it’s writing. I’ll keep y’all posted.
Life ain’t easy, y’all. But you’ve probably noticed that. It can befuddle us, bring us to our knees
I don’t know about you, but I don’t like being treated “differently”. That makes me think of being the trouble case or weird. I want to fit in but at the same time, don’t exactly. It’s tough figuring out and owning just who you are exactly. I do like to feel special though.
