Fun Friday: Me and Music Tag

Heyo peeps! Happy 🍟 day!

Today, I decided to do the Me and Music tag. I first saw this tag from Riddhi @ Whispering Stories and thought it looked fun. A thanks to her for leaving a nomination open for anyone to do.

Without further ado let’s begin!!

~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~

The Rules

  • Link back to the original (Sophie @ Me and Ink) so she can see your answers and listen to the tunes.
  • For every prompt you choose to do, name 1-5 songs (you can use Sophie’s graphics)
  • Have fun and play your music LOUD!

You will notice that I have used Sophie’s graphics, they were just too cute not to.

~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~

Apologizes in advance for if I repeat songs that I’ve already recommended before…they were probably just too good not to associate the prompt with them.

Cool Down – Kolohe Kai // “We’re living in Hawaii with Aloha and pride, yeah”

He Mele No Lilo – Mark KealiΚ»i HoΚ»omalu

Bamboo – Kimie Miner // “Oh love it’s true the storms will come but we’ll make it through”

Freckles and Constellations – Dodie // “All those cute conversations” // “I’m star struck, for you” // “Never had a moment that was quite like this”

Hopelessly – Reinaeiry // “I’m a hopeless romantic” // “Great poets are made of
Unrequited love.”

All My Love – SEVENTEEN // “Hello my joy” // “I’ll become your umbrella in the rain”

I don’t know why but I really struggled with this prompt. Maybe I don’t dance around to music as often as I thought I do? Idk…

Super Trouper – ABBA // “Feeling like a number one”

I love ABBA and I can not stress that enough. I also adore all the different recordings of the classic songs from A*Teens and the Mamma Mia cast. Not only must I dance but I must sing along.

The Coast of GaliΓ§ia – Celtic Woman

This song is an instrumental/orchestra piece so there are no lyrics but it’s so fun to twirl around to. I first listened to this song while reading a dancing scene from a fanfic and I fell in love with it. If you read fanfics from the Harry Potter fandom I totally recommend it, it’s called, “What the Room Requires.”

Better When I’m Dancin’ – Meghan Trainor // “Just move those left feet” // “Prove to them you’ve got the moves” // “We knew that you could do it”

Elephant Love Medley – Moulin Rouge

I must admit that I’ve never made it through one sitting of Moulin Rouge. But, this song was on my parent’s wedding video and I absolutely love it.

Don’t Lose Your Head – Six the Musical // “I didn’t really mean it but rumours spiral”

I adore this whole musical, the songs are so fun to sing. This historical inspiration behind it is tragic but it’s still a fun album to listen to.

Good Enough – A Week Away // “Not exactly what the kids these days are calling cool” // “Don’t let them tell you you’re not good enough” // “You just gotta be you, don’t break yourself apart”

I found myself really surprised when I realized how many songs on this soundtrack I actually liked. Normally I’m not very into religious/Christian songs, but this soundtrack was very subtle. My two other favorite songs from this movie were “Let’s Go Make a Memory” and “Best Thing Ever.”

Anybody Have a Map? – Dear Evan Hansen // “Another stumble as I’m reaching for the right thing to say”

I love the entire album but I relate to this song a lot. I know it’s about parenting but just being in high school is confusing. It’d be great to have a map lol.

People I Don’t Like – UPSAHL // “Yeah, I don’t really wanna be here like, ah-ah-ah-ah” // “So let’s pretend we like each other”

This song got me through the majority of my sophomore year group projects. I don’t necessarily love group projects…really I hate them, but sometimes they are just unavoidable. I found peace in this song when I really felt done with my group members.

Awesome God/God Only Knows – A Week Away // “All the memories, they somehow never leave you” // “God only knows how it’s killing you”

We Still (Be With U) – ASTRO // “I’ll protect you, an unchanging confession” // “I will pick you up, don’t be alone”

I adore ASTRO, they’re one of my favorite groups. Normally I would say You & Me is my comfort song from them but since I believe I mentioned it before I decided to pick one of their other songs.

Stay Beautiful – Jamie // “Don’tβ€…let these haters come by” // “You better hold your head high”

There are two versions of this song I like the first version a lot, but the Jamie ver. is also very good.

Halfway Around The World – A*Teens // “Halfway around the world. That won’t stop me from loving you.”

Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride – Mark KealiΚ»i HoΚ»omalu // “There’s no place I’d rather be, then on my surfboard out at sea”

Let me be clear that I do not know how to surf lol. I also don’t exactly like going to the beach…but this song was on the radio constantly when I was in elementary. My class even did our May day dance to it one year.

Count on Me – Bruno Mars // “You’ll always have my shoulder when you cry”

I used to listen to a LOT of Bruno Mars when my mom and I were in the car. Mostly because we had the album this song came from on CD but we also liked the songs.

What Makes You Beautiful – One Direction // “You’re insecure, don’t know what for”

I was never really a big fan of One Direction, don’t get me wrong their songs are really good, but I wasn’t one of those people with posters of them hanging on my walls. I just remember listening to this song a lot in the car, it was also the song picked for my summer fun’s end of summer dance program.

Into the I-Land – IU // “Let’s do our best, let’s just try”

I love IU’s version but I also really like the Final Version from the I-Land Applicants.

Dear Me – Taeyeon // “I trust myself” // “See how I’ve endured through the long darkness”

Left & Right – SEVENTEEN // “Keep your eyes wide open and your chin up” // “Let’s go together with no worries”

Kiss Me – Sixpence None The Richer // “Oh, kiss me, beneath the milky twilight” // “Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance”

Leaving on a Jet Plane – John Denvers // “Kiss me and smile for me” // “Hold me like you’ll never let me go”

I like most versions of this song but I’m particularly fond of The Macarons Project cover of it.

Fly Me to the Moon – Frank Sinatra // “Let me play among the stars” // “In other words, hold my hand”

Head Over Heels – The Go-Go’s // “It looked so easy. But you know looks sometimes deceive” // “Looks like the whole world’s out of sync”

I adore older music, and I have so many more favorite songs but I held myself back.

I Hear a Symphony – Cody Fry // “Perfection is so quick to bore”

Remember – WINNER // “There’s no good in ending us” // “We carrying nothing but a goring burden” // “So I put β€œSORRY” ten times for sure”

Us, Again – SEVENTEEN // “Oneβ€…day, we’re gonnaβ€…have a lot of waves” // “We sing together again, until that day”

So, these songs probably won’t make everyone cry but for me I start tearing up every time. It’s probably my fault that I associate the first song with crying because when I first listened to it I was watching a sad(ish) animatic. The other two are just well I guess I’m afraid of good things ending. It’s hard to imagine your favorite band/group/friendships breaking up, and these songs really strike those cords for me. Seventeen also has a song, “Smile Flower,” that made me cry when I first listened to it and read the lyrics too.

7up – Boy in Space // “I promise I will love you even with my broken heart” // “I don’t really mind ’cause I love you” // “And I was writing poetry about you everyday”

Good 4 u – Olivia Rodrigo // “You look happy and healthy, not me” // “You’re doing great out there without me, baby” // “Like a damn sociopath”

Retro Love – BOYHOOD // “Because you are just you without any ‘Why'”

picking flowers – kayden // “What happened to all the dreams that we had?” // “When it was easy to be grateful”

I didn’t really pay much attention to these songs’ lyrics before this…now they seem so sad. But they’re so catchy and will remain on repeat for a while to come.

For some reason this was the last prompt I filled out. It’s not that I don’t have favorite lyrics, it’s just that I like so many songs lyrics (if that’s not obvious from the lyrics I pulled in the previous prompts lol).

Simple – Woozi (from SEVENTEEN) // “Happiness is only a word” // “In this exit-less, maze-like world” // “I hope we can all smile when the night is over”

A Good Song Never Dies – Saint Motel // “The first time it made you cry, the first time you felt alive”

Shop Of Wonders – Reinaeiry // “Am I loved in a photograph?” // “Don’t need money / To spend my time with you” // “You’ll be my song / I’ll be your melody”

dancing in the kitchen – Zachary Knowles // “I just wanna dance with you” // “Let’s get dressed up for no occasion” // “We’ll stay up talking ’til it’s light out”

I’ve decided to skip this prompt because I’ve never really kept up with what songs are on the charts…like I might like a popular song but I won’t know if it’s on the Billboard’s Hot 100.

Come and Get It – Selena Gomez

I must say that this is not my favorite song. It is however very strongly ingrained into my memory after spending a good portion of my summer listening to it. I forget how old I was but my friends at summer fun decided they wanted to dance to this song for the talent show. I was not apart of the routine. However, in order to practice with music they requested to borrow our leader’s phone. I got to be the responsible one, trusted with the phone, and so I was stuck listening to this song pressing pause and play when needed.

Keep Your Head Up – Andy Grammar // “This is just a journey, drop your worries” // “Skeptics mess with the confidence in my eyes” // “Only rainbows after rain”

The entirety of 5th grade wrapped up in one song. My 5th grade teacher had this thing with her classes where we picked a class song, this was our’s. We learned the lyrics, sang along, and played it in the background of our class parties. 5th grade drama seems so silly now. I miss it.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow – Israel “IZ” KamakawiwoΚ»ole // “Where trouble melts like lemon drops”

This particular memory comes from middle school, and while my time in middle school was full of regret and embarrassment I’ve come to cherish my memories. I forget what grade we were in, 7th or 8th, one of those two. My homeroom/advisory were just hanging out before lunch time, and one of my classmates started playing the song and singing (he always carried around his ukulele). I don’t know what it was, maybe something was in the air lol, but everyone else joined along with him. We weren’t all the best singers but it was good fun and I’ll look back on that moment fondly. I used to find my homeroom annoying at best, but now I miss them. They were a constant that high school no longer offers.

Paper Rings – Taylor Swift // “I like shiny things, but I’d marry you with paper rings”

Can I Have This Dance – High School Musical // “Now won’t you promise me
that you’ll never forget.”
// “Don’t be afraid, afraid to fall.
You know I’ll catch you through it all.”

Honestly I can’t help but sing to any and all High School Musical songs. πŸ˜… πŸ˜‚

Pretty U – SEVENTEEN // “When I see you, it’s breathtaking” // “I want to pick and gather all
the pretty words for you”
// “I am counting flower petals all day long”

Monster – Shawn Mendes & Justin Bieber // “I was fifteen when the world put me on a pedestal” // “I came in with good intentions, then I let it go”

Cabinet Man – Lemon Demon // “You can’t win me, I can’t be beat” // “I only want to have fun”

I never really paid attention to the lyrics in this song…or really any Lemon Demon song, they were just there to drown out my thoughts. But dang these lyrics are really good.

Dead Girl Walking (Reprise) – Heathers the Musical // “It’s one more dance and then farewell” // “I wish grown-ups understood!”

I must say I don’t normally get attached to full albums so I struggled with this prompt, I’m more of a single song obsession girl lol.

Semicolon – SEVENTEEN // “It’s okay to think about it more” // “This feeling of wanting to know more” // “My love only amounts to this”

I love all of SEVENTEEN’s albums, I found it really hard to pick just one. Some of my favorites from this album are, “Do Ri Me,” “AH! Love,” and “All My Love.” I also really love their Love & Letter Repackage album.

Woodland – The Paper Kites // “We’re all just searching for something” // “And we’ll hate what we’ve lost but we’ll love what we find” // “Success is a song of the heart, not a song of your head”

This was the first album I’m ever listened to from The Paper Kites, but I absolutely love it. I often listen to it while doing homework.

Snap Shoot – SEVENTEEN // “Our laughter in the picture is all” // “”Snap shoot, I want to capture that smile”

Seventeen never fails to make me smile. I love the candidness of this music video and the fact that it was directed by Mingyu just made it so much more special.

All Night – ASTRO // “So ridiculous, here I am waiting for your call tonight” // “Gonna stay up all night telling you what I couldn’t before” // “I’ll never get tired of your voice”

This music video is just everything. I think it was Astro’s first dip into a more elegant style and it’s just so etherial, the flowers, the outfits. It was just so different from everything I knew them to usually be and it was amazing. Don’t get me wrong, I love their more boyish and playful music videos, but this one is just on a different level.

The Way You Felt: The Story – Alec Benjamin // “Oh I fell for your charm I was so infatuated” // “Is your heart just preconditioned for brevity”

This was such an interesting music video to watch. The way he included the story with subtitles just made it so much more personal.

~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~

🎧 Spotify Playlist 🎢

Unfortunately “Freckles and Constellations” isn’t on Spotify but here’s the Youtube link! As I was adding the songs I also realized “Us, Again” isn’t either so here’s the link. I added on Downpour from I.O.I and Smile Flower in it’s place on the playlist.

~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~

I had loads of fun doing this tag, though it did take me what felt like forever to find songs, and I was definitely using it to procrastinate on some very important homework :T

If you didn’t notice, I was heavily inspired by the colored text in Sophie’s post, and so I thought I’d try it out. The colors were a lot of fun to incorporate, and it was a new concept to me (before this I didn’t know how to make certain lines different colors). I probably won’t use colored text very often after this but I want to try use it sometimes!

I hope you guys had fun reading this post, maybe you even learned something about me from these songs. I don’t really have anyone to nominate…so I’ll just leave it open for anyone to do!

Until we meet again….have a wonderful weekend & 🍟 day, don’t procrastinate, and stay safe!

Fun Friday: GIF-Y love tag

Hi! Happy Friday, the end of another week…my actual first week of summer without summer school, though I still have AP summer work :/

Anyway, today I’ve decided to do the GIF-Y love tag. I first saw this tag on Annie’s blog at evening tea musings and I thought it looked like a lot of fun (considering I use GIFs a LOT when I text lol)!

~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~

Tagging Stories with Color: Webtoon and Music

Heyo peeps…this has been sitting in my drafts waiting to be finished for a while now, but school sucks so I wasn’t able to finish it until now. Anyway, thank you to Annie from evening tea musings for tagging me in this challenge! I’m so excited so let’s just dive right in.

~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~

Rules

#1 Share your favorite storiesβ€”movies/books/anime/manga/drama/songsβ€”by classifying them on these seven colors’ traits: 

  • red: passionate, exciting, invigorating
  • blue: peaceful, calming
  • pink: romantic, caring
  • orange: warm, motivating
  • black: mysterious, thrilling
  • green: fresh, unexpected
  • white: random

#2 Send this challenge invitation to at least one of your friends. Let them fear your superiority, as youβ€”decide their fate.

#3 Link back to the original post here! And, enjoy!

Note: It’s always recommended for you to thank (or link back to) the people who nominated you, but if you think there’s already an unbreakable bond between you and the challengers, then feel free to drop the courtesy.

~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~

Word of caution I struggled with categorizing and explaining a lot of these.

Red

For red I decided to focus on the word ✨passionate✨ as I wasn’t sure what could be considered more invigorating than being inspired by another person’s passion. While reading both Gourmet Hound and Annarasumanara I was inspired by their love for cooking and magic respectively.

Gourmet Hound” (by Leehama) tells the story of Lucy and the ex-chefs of her favorite restaurant, Diamche. It all starts off when the kitchen staff changes and the cooking that Lucy used to love disappears. She then sets out on the journey to rediscover that “perfect taste.”

Her journey is full of her own passion for food and the passion of the chefs’ that surround her. As the reader you receive a sample of the passion a person feels when they love what they do. It’s a lovely story that I highly recommend.

Do you believe in magic? That’s the question that is most prominent in “Annarasumanara” (by Ilkwon Ha). It follows the story of Yun Ah-ee, the magician (L), and Na Il-Dung. Ah-ee rediscovers her belief in magic when she meets L. L shares his passion for magic with her and gives magic back to her. The story often refers to being trapped on an asphalt road of expectations, but with their passion for magic they are able to break free from others expectations.

Really this story tells the readers to follow their dreams and to make their own paths. As a reader you get to see how having passion in life can be the most important thing. I highly recommend it as it can really change some perspectives.

~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~

Blue

I really struggled with this category, I just wasn’t sure what was calming or peaceful because I hardly ever listen to mellow music I’d rather drown my thoughts out with rock music. I guess I’m never really relaxed lol.

Don’t Run Away” is an OST for A-Teen, one of my favorite k-dramas from Playlist Global. It’s sung by Motte who’s voice is so calming, it lulls me into a sense of security. The song’s lyrics sing of trusting others and not pushing people away. It’s a really beautiful song that I adore and recommend.

Little Rain” (by Mai) is a new feature to Webtoon and it’s very calming. Not much of the storyline is known yet but it follows unlucky Lisa and her cat Rain who’s a guardian angel with memory loss.

The colors are really mellow tones and the background ambience is everything. In each episode, so far, there’s background music that varies with different weather ambiences and white noises. This has elevated “Little Rain” from it’s time in Discover. I highly recommend it if you need something relaxing to read.

~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~

Pink

I absolutely adore “#muted” (by kandismon) with Jasper and Kai. It starts with Jasper meeting Kai, a boy who doesn’t speak. As they face the trials and tribulations of a relationship Jasper does his best to support Kai. Their story is a lovely but realistic romance with ups and downs but still full of caring. It melts my heart and the art style is beautiful. Highly recommend!

It can be found in the Discover/Canvas section of Webtoon.

You & Me (Thanks AROHA)” comes from ASTRO’s special album Winter Dream. It’s one of the songs I put on when I feel down and need to smile. It just makes me feel so cared for and appreciated.

It’s an upbeat song that’s dedicated to AROHA, ASTRO’s fans. The lyrics talk about how happy their fans make them and recollecting upon fond memories. It also thanks their fans for supporting them and how in the future they hope to make us smile.

~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~

Orange

Crumbs” (by Whithering) takes place in a world where magic is the norm and getting a slice of romance isn’t too hard. The story follows a young seer named Ray and with her order of hot tea and a slice of romance, we meet Laurie, a familiar face at the bakery Ray loves. Love is in the air as Ray and Laurie learn how to balance a relationship and their dreams.

I absolutely love this webtoon, it just gives such a warm feeling. Ray and Laurie’s relationship offers the wholesomeness of having a crush and the warmth that comes with a caring partner. They motivate each other to follow their dreams and support decisions made even when they don’t totally agree. It’s just so cute and I just love the idea of magic being normalized. I totally recommend reading it!

Seventeen’s song “My My” from their mini album Heng:garΓ¦ tells us that everything’s okay. It’s motivating and comforting all at once. It ensures listeners that it’s okay to move at their own pace and that where they are in life is just fine. While also encouraging listeners to reach for their dreams and to make their own path in life.

A few of my favorite lines are:

  • “Nothing’s set in stone”
  • “No need to rush, you’re doing fine”
  • “Just stay as you are”

~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~

Black

Purple Hyacinth” (by Ephemerys / Sophism) is a thrilling mystery that follows Lauren, a police officer who can detect lies, as she teams up with Kieran, a deadly assassin, to bring down a notorious crime organization that connects a to a gruesome event that haunts Lauren’s past.

The twists, turns, and constant danger of this webtoon keeps readers on their toes. Cliffhangers are deadly and keep you wanting more. The art is also really lovely, with striking color. I would definitely recommend it!

I was really conflicted when deciding where to put this song, I almost put it into the green category. I think that the concept is just so cool, but I ultimately decided that it belonged here because of it’s mysterious tones and background story.

DONGKIZ’s song “LUPIN” is upbeat and smooth, heavily referencing the gentleman thief, ArsΓ¨ne Lupin. With the Netflix series “Lupin” (Totally recommend watching, in the original French w/subs, of course) I’ve fallen even more in love with this song. The choreo is also so cool, I’ve watched the dance versions so many times because I just couldn’t get my mind around the magic acts they incorporated into it! O.o I definitely recommend watching it, even if only to see how smoothly they did the moves that involved the magic acts.

~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~

Green

This category was rather hard for me to find a song for so I only have a webtoon. :/

Blades of Furry” (by Deya Muniz / Emily Erdos) is a webtoon I never knew I needed. The story heavily involves the sport of Skate Battles, a mix of figure skating and martial arts. We follow up-and-coming skater Emile and his relationship with the famous senior skater Radu. In a match between the two, Emile discovers a secret that could ruin Radu. Which sends the two spiraling into cahoots and love?

Though fairly new with only 26 episodes, I adore Emile and Radu. The plot and universe it lives in is so unique and refreshing! I also find the idea of Skate Battles so interesting, it’d be so cool to watch irl. 10/10 would recommend!

~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~

White

I just really love these webtoons, they are HILARIOUS. Both can be found in the canvas section, previously known as discover.

Here’s The SHITuation” (by Daica.) is the story of 4 amazing friends, adorable ships, and their shenanigans. We follow Robyn, a fangirl for dramas and their clichΓ©s, as she tries to get her best friend Irene, a cat lover, together with Edison, a shy cat owner. Ian, a romance skeptic, and Edison’s best friend comes along for the ride. Who knows what will happen next?

Humor Me” (by Marvin.W) follows Charlie as she just tries to get through high school and life while taking care of her younger brother. It doesn’t help that her school does allow jobs, everyone thinks she’s a guy (though maybe that’s a positive?), and famous James Hardford thinks she’s stalking him.

Nominees

~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~

It has been a journey finishing up this blog post. I’ve had loads of fun but gosh it has taken me forever to finish it and I’m so sorry for that. I blame my tardiness mostly on school, I started writing this during my spring break and now it’s been summer break for a few weeks now. >~< I hope you guys enjoyed it though, I loved recommending my favorite webtoons and hope that maybe some of them struck an interest. Also if I tagged you, I hope you have fun completing this tag!!

Thank you again to Annie for tagging me!!

Until we meet again…stay safe ❀

Wandered right into a tag …or two

Heyo peeps, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted but I can explain. I’ve had the worst case of writers block, and all the poems I have been able to write I couldn’t post because they were for a school contest and yeahhh. Anyway, I am so excited to do this post because this is the first time I’ve ever been nominated for a tag! Thank you to Pavithra from Small Talks for nominating me! I must admit I haven’t read a lot of her posts, but the ones I have read are amazing, so check out her blog!

~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~β˜†~

Questions

1. What kind of music do you listen to and why?

I like to think that I listen to a wide spectrum of music, but I often find myself listening to pop, kpop, indie pop, some light rock, musical soundtracks, and classical pieces. Heh, that’s a lot of pop, but I’m not very good at identifying music genres. I often listen to kpop because of the meaning behind the lyrics and a lot of my favorite songs are kpop so…yeahhh.

2. What is your favorite quote? Why do you like it?

I had the hardest time picking a quote but I finally settled on,

“You say ‘amateur’ as if it’s a dirty word. ‘Amateur’ comes from the latin word ‘amare’, which means to love. To do things for the love of it.”

Mozart in the Jungle

Currently it is my favorite quote because I am always really self conscious about trying new things. I have tons of interests but I find myself not pursing them because I’m too scared of not being good at it and embarrassing myself in front of others. This quote is a reminder to me that it’s okay to do things just because I love it or I’m interested in it, and I don’t need to be exceptionally good at it.

3. How do you handle stress or anxiety?

I bake, write a poem, or text my friends. No matter what I end up doing there will always be music involved.

4. Are you a inside or outside person?

I thought I was more of an inside person, but maybe I’m a bit of both. Like I don’t like hiking, but I don’t totally hate the beach or parks, but I like being at a library or mall more than the nature scenes…so idk.

5. (Random ques) what did you searched last in your Google!?

My last Google search was for a hot rod and classic car show at Pearlridge. Basically, there was a car show at this mall I was at and I wanted to know more about it, like it would end at a certain time…that search gave me nothing but I did get to see the cars so, yay! Fun fact: I think that classic cars are just so cool, and I wish I could have one…even though I don’t know how to drive yet lol

Joys

1. Dressing up and dancing to waltz/classical music @home by myself

I’m going through like a constant regency era/ballroom dancing phase…so yeah, living my dreams lol.

2. Reading for fun

I don’t read for fun a lot anymore or recently because I’m in a reading slump and I just don’t have a lot of time anymore. But reading for school just takes the fun out of things, so I only really like reading on my own time.

3. Watching favorite tv shows/movies

I have tons of favorite/comfort shows and movies including Criminal Minds, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Anne with an E, Gilmore Girls and Harry Potter.

4. Fangirling over…my biases, OTPs, and so much more

5. Writing poetry

So my thing is kind of writing poetry..so, it’d be kind of awkward if I didn’t find joy in writing them πŸ˜…

6. Talking with friends

I love my friends…they make great therapists and fangirling partners!

7. Being with family

8. Taking photos

9. Watching fave youtubers/streamers

10. Writing letters to friends/family

There’s just something about decorating and writing letters. Snail mail is just so cool!

11. Baking and desserts

I find baking very therapeutic and I have a huge sweet tooth.

12. Performing in speech and debate club

If you don’t know I’m in my school’s speech and debate club and I love it to pieces. I’m currently a part of a duo and it’s just so fun to act with friends.

13. Jackets, collared shirts, and shoes

I have absolutely adore jackets, collared shirts, and shoes. What more can I say?

This has been so much fun…and I definitely procrastinated on so much homework while writing this post. πŸ˜… And this is also the most gifs and photos I’ve ever put into a post, but it was just so addicting; adding gifs. Anyway I hope this was a fun post, and I look forward to posting again soon! Thank you again to Pavithra for nominating me!

Until we meet again…
