Talking About TV Shows

If you have seen me talking about tv shows before, you know that I start new tv shows all the time without finishing the ones I am currently watching. And… let’s face it… I haven’t been better at this. The thing is, I should work with finishing the tv shows that are finished, I have a lot of those… some of them are rewatches that I want to watch again and cross them of at the time TV Time. The plan is to talk about the tv shows afterwards, but I have to refresh myself if I have watched it before, because I don’t remember a lot.

I am working on two series right now, the first one is Heartland, I have watched maybe half before I stopped, one of the reasons was where to watch it. However, New Faith Network recently started to put out one season a month, and now I can watch it again. Heartland is for more a series I want to call something like, watching horse shows and see how they are, or something like that.

The other one I’m working on is Pretty Little Liars. I used to watch the latest seasons when they came out, and I used to love it. I need a refresher, but I definitely don’t find it as intriguing and interesting as I did the first time around. I am actually struggling to get through it. So I have to say that I might set this one on a break at some point and watch something else before getting back to it at a later time. Maybe watch something else and then get back to it later, or have it one the back hand and watch an episode here and there.

I try not to watch too many at the same time, just because I rather want to finish tv shows instead of starting new ones, finding things I like and not finish the ones I have started.

How I save up money

I have never been good at saving money when I have them on my bank account. And saving has always been a big struggle for me. Everything got a little easier once I grew up and started to make my own money, but it’s still a struggle at times. Especially now, when I don’t have work, and my bills are the same, and the money I get aren’t too much. However, I make it work, with a few different things.

First off I have to say: I am NOT an expert, I can only do what works for me, and even if I do them, I still struggle from time to time.

1. Be aware of what your monthly income is, and your monthly bills. Then you know how much money you have left, and then you can start to plan from there.

2. If you want to have more money left in the end of the month, start to think of places to save from. Can you cut down on things you buy, clothing, food, etc. and see if there are places you can use less in. Also, go through subscriptions you have, are there things you pay for that you do not use? If there are, maybe cut it out, if you don’t use it there is a small change you are going to miss it.

3. Choose if you over all want to only save money for a certain thing, just save money over all or both. I can say that I do both, and I have those two savings separately. And after you have chosen that, how much money do you want to save every single month. And then choose when to put it over somewhere else, this is mostly up to you. Save the money once you get the money, or at the end of the month, both has it positives and negatives. Let’s talk about some of it before we move on.

Save the money once you get paid. A positive is that you know that the money you want to save gets saved, because you set them over before you starting to use anything. A negative is that you might have to put something back if there are a unexpected bills.

Save the money before you get the next paycheck. A positive is that you know that all the bills are paid and you can put all the money you have left, or some of it into the savings account. A negative is that you might have used more money than you anticipated, because the money was there.

4a. For saving money over all I think the easiest thing is a savings account. I have one, and I put the money I have left into that account at the end of the month, and I know that I use more money that I am supposed to, and therefore there aren’t too much money, but I try and put a little bit in there, in case there are some unexpected bills that I haven’t thought of.

4b. For saving for a specific thing and only that, the same thing apply as over. Savings account, so you get the money you need, and then when you have saved enough you can buy whatever you had in mind.

4c. For saving for both. I would not recommend having the same savings account for both. Why not? Because then, when you have the money on that account and use it you no longer have anything in your savings account. I have a savings account and then something else that I put money into to save for a specific thing. I don’t think the app I’m using is available outside of Norway, however I will tell you the app I’m using, and then maybe you have something similar where you live. I use an app called Dreams, and I love it! In this app you make a dream, put in the amount of money you need to accomplish this dream, and then you have so many savings options. You can have as many or as few dreams as you like, and then you choose how much you want to save in each dream.

5. Never give up. In the beginning saving money can be difficult. However, try again and again, and eventually you will become better.

Here are just a few on my tips. I would love to hear your tips too!

Already 8th of August

That we already are 8 days into August is sick! I have done a lot of reading this week, I have to be honest.I have finished 14 books this month, and that is crazy! So that means I at least have 1 video to film, and that is a mid month wrap up, because if I keep up the speed I will be over 30 books this month… however, I do have some chunkier books to read, I have started Word of Radiance, and will read 100 pages a day, so that will take me 10 days to finish.

I hope to finish a lot of the books I need to, because I also have a video idea, and I would love to post the fist one this month, and maybe another next month, it is from a genre that is quick to read. I cannot wait to start this video, and I’m so excited!

I haven’t done much else, I am a member of We Be Book’n on Facebook, and this month we are doing a bookish Jeopardy, and I am so competitive that I have finished a book a day. This have been so much fun!

This Happens Every Time

Let’s be honest. Over these last few months I have felt a little slumpy at the end of every single month.
I had a goal of joining one readathon every single month, but I think it might be a bit too much. A lot of the readathons are month long with loads of prompts, and let’s face it I am an overachiever, I want to complete every single prompt, and when I see it doesn’t work I get slumpy, this has happened over the last few months, and I see it again this month.
I have to say, I am joining a readathon in August. G from Book Roast is low key hosting the Magical Readathon, just for people to finish their career if they want to. This is my first year joining, and I want to complete it. And then a new chapter of this readathon will start next year. And I get that, with everything that has been going around I understand.

I have books for every single prompt, I have to finish 18 books to finish my career. I hope that will happen, I hope I will be able to finish the books that I need to, and not read everything else. I have chosen books I am excited for, and I hope that helps. I will also be participating in a game on a Facebook group called WeBeBook’n called Jeopardy, and if anyone has seen the game on YouTube or Netflix it’s the same just with book prompts. Let’s be honest, I want to win. I think that this might motivate me to read some more, and I hope the prompts I get will fit to the books I want to read this month, if not I might have to change something.

I have 2 books from the mytbr website I should finish, I will talk more about them in a post when I have finished all 3, I have read 1 of them and I need 2 more, before giving them a review back on how they did, I guess that mail will be here any day now because it’s maybe a month since I got the titles.
They did really good with their first pick, so I hope that the other books they have chosen are just as good.

I cannot believe we are soon in August. It’s a day or so left of July, and until then I don’t plan on doing much, maybe I will try and read a book or something.

So my Bookopoly Chooses My August TBR will be going up later today, I was supposed to upload it earlier, however, I just didn’t feel like editing.

Typically My Brain

So, this morning I had a great idea for a post. But I didn’t write it down, and right now I regret this… because now my brain can’t remember what it was.

Today I haven’t done much, I am participating in the Reading Rush, so I have read 5 books this week, and I am hoping to read more, I still have 3 books left on my TBR, and I am hoping to be able to read all of them, if that is happening I can’t say. So, tomorrow it’s definitely possible to finish 2 books, I have already started one, and I might read some more today of it. And tomorrow I am reading Heartstopper, and since it’s a graphic novel it will take me maybe an hour.

I have to tell you about something I watched yesterday, I found it in my YouTube feed, and let me tell you, it highly upset me. I was like super sad right before I went to bed.
Let me link it here first, and then tell you what it’s about:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BR6VHTchtf8

This youtuber is talking about equestrians and industries around that. And one of these are big lick. She explains it all good in this video, I’m not going into too much detail because I just get upset talking about it.

Walking horse study once blasted by industry now trumpeted ...

This is a picture of what it looks like. And let me tell you, this is the worst thing I have ever seen. But as normal, those people who in on these sports and support it, they don’t see anything wrong.
Hearing what they do to these horses to get them to lift their legs un-normally high was heart-breaking. And the way the horses move it’s back legs it shows how much pain the horse is in, it is trying to take off as much pain from the front legs as possible.
I can’t talk about it anymore, I just get so upset.

Anyways, that was it for my rant today.

Reading Update

So, I don’t have many ideas. So why don’t I just talk a little about how my reading is going. I actually have read over 100 books so far this year, so I think I will get close to 200 books this year, and that is sick. Now, I do read all kinds of genres, but my favorite is Romance, and romance books are easier read than most.

I have read some shorter books, and when I’m not in the mood to physically read I usually have an audiobook on. I try and read a little all over the board of genres, and different lengths of the books.

I have an idea for a video series I want to do on my channel, I just have a lot going on right now. And in August I have a readathon that I have a large TBR for, so I won’t be able to start it in August. So it looks like I will start in August, I have to see how many I will do, because I have some other books i should get to as well.

I have noticed that I have been slowing down a little on my reading, and I think that it’s because I have been doing a lot of readathons with a lot of prompts, and then I have to keep to the TBR and not mood read a little, because I have to stick to the TBR. So from September I think I need to just relax a little, and if i want to do a readathon of some sorts, be in on it low key.

But, now I am going to my room again. I am writing a story and I want to keep on going. But first, upload my Reading Rush Vlog for day 4.

I so Need Some New Ideas

I find myself sitting here every time I am going to write something, and I just blanks. I never know what I am going to write about, I used to have all these ideas running around in my head, but all of a sudden I just blanks.

This time we are in, are a little strange. I have so much time to think, but I just feel like I sit around and do nothing. Feeling demotivated and just need some ideas.

I don’t have anything to write, I spend all day thinking about this, and when I am going to write, I have nothing. I know there are a lot of things to write about. I have to say that a lot of the things that is online I don’t feel like writing about.

I like to write about my life, the only thing is: I don’t do much. Let’s be honest. I am inside most of the day, reading, or watching tv, or just relaxing and doing nothing.

I will continue to post as frequently as I can, and hope that ideas will come to me eventually.

I’m so TERRIBLE

Here we are for the 100th time apologizing for not writing. It has been some difficult times, for a lot of reasons. And so there are some reasons for my hiatus.

I bough myself a keyboard to my iPad, so I could write blogpost from there when I didn’t feel like turning on my computer, and just a few weeks in it stopped working, and I have no idea why. I have tried charging it but… nothing. There are a few keys that works, but I can’t write full sentences with it anymore. And that sucks!

Then when everything locked down, and things started going online my computer got moved into the living room. Because my computer is the only one with a camera. And now I find it difficult to do everything. Edit videos, write blog posts and everything. I just don’t feel like sitting in my living room doing that, with my headphones on, and people talking to me at the same time.

I am also feeling a little sulky, I have been wanting a new computer. And I know what I want, I just don’t have the money. I am saving, but it goes so slowly. I can notice my computers age, it starts to be slow and I hope it will be able to work for a while longer. I’m not even half way to my new computer.

I have also just had a lot of s*tty days. Being tired to the point where I have done nothing for an entire day. Having headaches. But also, people are always at home, and our house is 70kvm. And for 3 people it is small. It is noisy half of the time, and the house is from the 1970, and it has no isolation in the walls, so you hear everything.

Well, now I am going to sleep. I am super tired, and have migraine coming.

Your Rebel Dreams Review

This post have affiliate links

44008877

I want to say that Your Rebel Dreams is more of a self-discovery that a self-help book.

In Your Rebel Dreams you will get help with what your passion is. This is not only a book to read, you have loads of worksheets in this that will help you discover your passion and purpose in life.

This is the first in a three book series called Rebel Diva.

The book will make you think, and you will have to work hard to find some of the answers for this book, but it is all worth it in the end.

If you don’t have this book physical, inside the book you get a link to get a worksheet you can print out that has the exercises you will do in this book.

In this book you will find your values and your purpose in life.
Your talents and skills in your passion.
The environment that brings out the best in you.
And create a vision for your life in line with your calling.
And so much else.

There was so many good quotes in this book, that will inspire you, and they all fit so well with the chapter they where in.

If you aren’t sure what your passion is yet, this book is for you. Set off some time, for this is not a book that takes a short time. The author would like that you work on this for 8 weeks, and discover your passion and meaning in life.

I would highly recommend this book. And least try it out. See if this is something for you.

A lot of the books I read are under rated books. This book has only 19 ratings on Goodreads, and only 46 ratings on Amazon, so there are not a lot of people who knows about this book.

Discover Weekly Songs

If you have Spotify you know that every single week you get new songs on your own playlist called Discover Weekly. A playlist that changes every single Monday. I use this one sometimes, but maybe not enough. That is why I want to try this out. I will put on the playlist here at home, and write down the song and how I am feeling about it, then I will say if I decide to save it or not.
Let’s go. I wonder what Spotify has in store for me this week.

BOYS LIKE YOU – ANNA CLENDENING
A love song of some kind. I like it. I think this is a song I can listen to again. Definitely, I actually is listening to the song rather than writing a lot about it.
I’m gonna save it, so I can do just that. Listen to it again.

STONE COLD – DEMI LOVATO
I mean, it’s Demi Lovato. She is amazing! I have been bad at keep up with what she has made, so I am so happy that things like these comes up so I can catch up a little.
I’m gonna save it! It you didn’t catch what I was just saying.

LET ME LOVE YOU – UNTIL YOU LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF – REDCARPETPOPS
This was a long title. I don’t really know. I could change my mind, but right now I don’t feel a connection. However, my music changes with my mood.
So, I am going to skip it.

SYMPHONY – CLEAN BANDIT, ZARA LARSSON
I have of course heard this before. I have heard this one on the radio time after time. And that is the reason I don’t have this one on any lists. And that is also the reason I am going to skip it now too.

BEAUTIFUL MESS – KRISTIAN KOSTOV
I am instantly drawn. He has a beautiful voice. And I think this is a song I can listen to more.
So, I am going to save it.

I WON’T GIVE UP – CHRISTINA GRIMMIE
A cover. I love the original song. This girl has a good voice. And I love a good cover of songs. So I am going to save it.

I’M NOT HER – CLARA MAE
I like how it sounds. This is a song I can see myself listening to in the car. That is that kind of song.
I am going to save it.

EVERYTIIME WE TOUCH – COOLEST HITS VERSION – SWEET SOFT LADIES, WINTER LOUNGE EDITION:
I have many of these covers of this song. I’m not going to save this. It’s nothing wrong with it, this is just a song I don’t listen to too much.

LOVE CAN SAVE IT ALL – ANDRA
I instantly am attracted to this song! I will save it, even if I won’t listen to it all the time I don’t want this song to just disappear without me can find it again.

HERE COMES GOODBYE – CHRIS SLIGH
I have to be honest. No one will be better at Rascal Flatts.

UNSTEADY – TRANSFORMATING DUKE
I love this song. However, I don’t listen to a lot of versions of it.

THE DOCTOR SAID – CHLOE ADAMS
This is a no for me.

OVER AND OVER AGAIN – NATHAN SYKES, ARIANA GRANDE
No. I don’t like the start, and then my problems start. I usually don’t listen to songs if I don’t like the beginning. And, the way I feel today, this is not the song for me.

HURT LIKE WE DID – FO&O
I am intrigued. Ok, I like it. I think I want to keep it!

NEVER ENOUGH – CIMORELLI, JAMES CHARLES
I love this song. But, I don’t think I will ever like anything just as much as the one in The Greatest Showman.

I THINK I’M IN LOVE – ANDIE CASE
This is something I would listen to in my car. So, sure.

DU STO DER å LO – VANJA V
This is a Norwegian song. I like it.

I KEEP DANCING ON MY OWN – DJ DRIVE
I have listened to this song way too much!

I have heard this too much!

GATUVÅLD – BELL MOTHANDER
So, another Norwegian song. I don’t think so with this one.

DANCING ON MY OWN/ I WANNA DANCE WITH SOMEBODY – NICK PITERA
Another one?

RESET – TIGER JK, JINSIL
More like k-pop. It’s catchy! So, yes.

REALLY DON’T CARE – I DON’T FLY
Nothing will be better than the original.

GOTTA GO MY OWN WAY – GABRIELLA, TROY
NO!

UMBRELLA – J2, JVZEL
I am not the biggest fan of this song. I don’t listen to it that much!

UTAN DINA ANDETAG – IDA-LOVA
Why? Just, no.

ONE MORE LIGHT – ONYRIA
I like it. So, yes.

UNHINGED – NICK JONAS
I don’t listen to a lot of Nick Jonas. I find out that I usually end up liking his songs.

That was all the songs! So, I found a few new ones.
