My Safe Place.

How vivid can a memory be?

I'm sat here amazed. Years ago, on a hot afternoon, I can hear the fan humming and the feel of my hair following the breeze, stroking my face. I lay on the opposite of the bed where my feet would normally go so I can look up out the window. There was not one voice to be heard.

So I did.

This moment is probably the most serene I have ever felt in my life All I saw were leaves dancing with the breeze, the light seeping through. I can't describe the picture in my head, nor the experience enough to give it justice! There was a cluster of leaves that I focused on, rays not directly to my eyes. Then I paused.

I told myself there and then, that I would remember this moment for the rest of my life.

I'm thinking of it right now. A little old me, creating a safe place in my head without knowing it.


Just do what you gotta do.

I've retyped the start of this post countless times, failing too, without the genius coming to me. All those lines were lousy complaints. It may be the time of day and the current situation but I'm just going to put it this way:-

Just do what you gotta do. 

..And not wait for some "motivation" to come to you and fire you right up. A mentor did point out that motivation is overrated. It's revision time and my head is all the way in the future. One easily forgets to live in the present. *cough me cough* And obviously it's me escaping the now. This happens too regularly because I practically live in my head. This is not advised. 

However, lately I have been making the effort to change my attitude and with results! It caught up to me that most of what I have been experiencing mentally and physically is my own doing, and thus, only I can do something about it. It's all part of the growth and like I always say, "I can only get better." Positivity!!

Just let go.

That's it. 


Listen to Tim Atlas right now.

Great News! One of my favourite artists released his first song in his upcoming EP and I am incredibly excited to share. 

His name is Tim Atlas (he used to be Tim Ferguson) and I fell in love with his acoustic covers. When a very skilled guitarist with a very suave voice that has the right amount of rasp can sing lyrics with correct diction, friends we've found ourself a star. Plus his music videos are very well made. I rarely watch music videos because I generally put a song on and listen, and obviously his definitely has heart. Tim is greater than Ben Howard. His music can definitely give me a thousand feels which is always a good sign. Hope you like it!  



Do they really know you?
Know how you're doing?
Heard that you've just reached a milestone in your life?
Or that you're struggling with your head aches or that your cat has stomach problems and you're really worried?
How many times have they let you talk about your problems to them?
Did you notice that they always always just talk about themselves?
When it's time for you to talk, it's suddenly time's up.
You're missing out.


What do you call a guy who's got seagulls resting on his head?

Cliff  *lol*

I just had to. I hope it makes you giggle friends! xD
I believe not having rice for dinner is waving sleepy away. Because you know, carbohydrates knock you out snoring.

Sweet Dreams!



Blood - The Middle East // Tuesday Tunes

Hallo Friends!!

Tuesday Tunes is here to bring you two treats. First of all, this song is called Blood. It's a simple song with a simple message. What's Blood to us? I am no interpreter but this song is enough to pave the way to nights of pondering about things in life that we don't normally touch through the day. Specifically, family life. It is a song that's very open to each individual interpretation.

"And you'll find somebody you can blame
And you'll follow the creek that runs out into the sea
And you'll find the peace of the Lord."

Second, I introduce to you this YouTuber, Mree and her cover of this song. As I post more tunes, you will realise a pattern to what kind of music I listen to.This is mostly acoustic to folk tunes, soothing. Mree has a soothing voice. Incredibly relaxing to listen to after a full day. I recommend you go check her out. She's releasing an album soon!

Share me a song you're listening to recently? I'm very open to new material! :)



Warm Bodies Review *No spoilers* // Movie Mondays

Hi Friends! Here is a mini review, that is hopefully very easy to read, of the film Warm Bodies starring Nicholas Hoult. *Oh yeahh* Now to my thoughts on it...

Summary:- R (Hoult)  is a cold dead zombie who stumbles upon Julie, a living human, and falls in love with her.

What I liked about the film:-
  • Hoult did a decent job playing the R role and carried the film..
  • It had a love conquers all moral to the story.
  • Had very amusing moments, but not amusing enough to make me chuckle out loud.
  • I liked the "boneys" concept.
  • The pace caught up in the last thirty minutes or so.
  • It made me think about how the story was going to end for a good five minutes because the storyline is just one of the weirdest I've seen yet. Definitely didn't guess the ending to this one, oddly enough! (haven't read the book and will not ever)
What I did not like about the film:-

  • I thought the concept was way off. It just didn't make sense to me. 
  • Preferably films should keep zombies, zombies, meaning man eaters and brain eaters. 
  • The love story was very shallow. Because of what R did, the relationship shouldn't even have happened.
  • This was a slow starter. I usually know this is the case when I put the film on and I start browsing other pages and not paying attention to it. It wasn't grabbing enough! Not even Nicholas Hoult's eyes!
  • Story development was minimal.  It was the usual infection, survival of the fittest 'meh' of this genre. 
Should you watch it?
Sure, if you have time to kill and you have absolutely no other choice. Will I pick this over Dumb and Dumber? I would, any day. That film annoys me, just the title.... Anyway, this is a one time watch. Nowhere near Shaun of the Dead standard. If you're curious enough how a love story between a 'corpse', what they call the zombies in the film, and a human then please do. If you can take a bit of the corny concepts and just looking for a quick rom-com, this is also for you. Otherwise, you're probably better off doing the laundry and folding clothes whilst watching the news... Nicholas has other better films.

Have you seen this? If so, I would love to know what you thought of it! :) 


The lead actress is practically Kristen Stewart's long lost twin! Have a secret obsession with Kristen. I love her style. I love her straight face. I love her. Oops, I guess it's not so secret anymore...
