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!

NEVER FORGET YOU – ANGELA CHANG
Yes! I like it.

WHY IS EVERYTHING SO HEAVY – SOUNDTRACK DELIGHT
I think it’s okay. I will keep it in case I am in the mood.

SCARED TO BE LONELY – BEN WOODWARD
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.

The Week That Passed 18/2020

I thought I would start up with this again. Talking about the week that passed. This is something I used to do all the time. I like talking about my favorite things.

LAST WEEKS HIGHLIGHTS:
Hmm… Wednesday. I changed to summer tiers on my car. But also something else happened.

LAST WEEKS DOWNTURN:
I just have had some off days. A lot of the days this week has been off days. Where I have just been so tired and not feeling like doing anything else.

LAST WEEKS MOVIE:
I didn’t watch a lot of movies last week. However, I did watch the entire Chronicles of Narnia. All three movies. I just love these movies. They was such a huge part of childhood, and I just still love them because of that.

LAST WEEKS TV SHOW:
So, I only watched three episodes of Baywatch last week. The last three episodes of season 1. And I will tell you, this first season is such a drag! I will continue on, just because I am curious about how it is. I have just seen the 2 last seasons, never the ones leading up to those.

LAST WEEKS SONG:
What’s My Name by China Anne McClain, Thomas Doherty and Dylan Playfair.
I have been listening to this one so much!

LAST WEEKS BOOK:
I read a lot of 3 star books last week. However, the one that got 5 stars and I liked the most was Restore Me by Tahareh Mafi.

LAST WEEKS CELEBRITY:
So, only watching only Narnia and Baywatch I can only have 1 person I like. Or… two, kinda.

These two. Skandar Keynes and Ben Barnes. These two are my favorites.

LAST WEEKS COUPLE:
I have to say. There are not a lot of couples in things I have seen this week. I have to say Shauni and Eddie for this week.

That was the week that passed. I hope you enjoyed. I hope to get more into this as time passes.

How I Stay Creative

I do a lot of different things. And there are things I choose to do to keep my creativity there. I have different things, and I usually find new things that I would like to do. I love being creative, and doing a little every day helps.

Drawing:
I have been talking about this one before. I am doing a challenge, draw one drawing a day for 365 days and see what happens. I have been drawing for 20 days now. I like the challenge, and that makes me come up with new things every day. How good the drawing get, depends on my mood and how long I feel like drawing.

Brush Lettering:
This is something I started now in May. I spend a few minutes every day writing a quote using Brush Lettering. This is to get even better at it. I try out different pens, and see what I like the most. I hope to be able to buy even more brush letter pens.

Bullet Journal:
This is something I got into this year. I try out different things with it every single time. This not only helps me stay creative, but also to stay organized. I hope to be able to do this even better when I get a real hang of it. I like to see how the different themes changes, and how good or bad they get.

Videos:
Filming videos is also a great way to be creative. You can do what you want to, and make it how you want.

Pictures:
This is something I want to get better at. Taking pictures and see how I can be creative that way. Hopefully this is something I can get into.

I do my best to stay creative. I love being creative. It is a time where I kind of stopped doing things like this, and I can see how much things like this changed. I am also drawing worse than before, but I think with time I will bet better at drawing again.
