Musical Monday-Brave by Sara Bareilles

music copy

I did a Musical Monday post last week and if you missed it you can check it out right here!  This weeks I decided to do a post about the song Brave by Sara Bareilles.  This song came out last year but I just found it and I have to say I have had it on repeat because I love the message of this song.

Now that you have listened to the song what do you think?  Do you love what this song says to everyone?  I think people today need to hear this song and the message because there is so much bullying going on and people feeling like they aren’t worth with anything.  If more people tried to do what this song says I am sure there would be fewer people committing suicide.  This post has turned into me basically saying people need to be nice to each other.

Anyway what do you think of this song?  What songs are you loving now?

All Smiles

All Smiles

I was reading a blog post last week by the SITS girls and they listed 28 prompts for the month of February and as I read through the prompts I saw a few I wanted to write about and this was one of them: What made you smile this week?

I chose this one because I am a firm believer that laughing helps relieve stress and for me when I smile I am usually laughing.  I am going to share a few things that made me smile from this past week.

  • My little brothers son is starting to smile and it seems that I am one of the few who can always get him to smile and laugh.
  • My grandma when we went shopping decided that she was going to make flour go all over me because she acts like she is a teenager.  The bag had a hole in it so she pressed on the bag and flour when all over me.
  • Just watching people made me smile because I don’t think people realize all of the crazy & weird things that they do.
  • I loved watching people get offend when they read the hoodie that I was wearing and see their reactions to it.  I was wearing this hoodie because I love the song and I love the hoodie: (FYI: I got the hoodie here if you want to pick one up for yourself)Coldass_Honky_clothing_large
  • I watched this YouTube video that makes me smile every time I watch it.  The ending is the best part of the video and it makes me smile just thinking about it.

Those are a few of the things that made me smile this past week.

What made you smile this week?

Can’t Hold Us-Musical Monday

music copy

I have another Musical Monday post for you today because lately I have loved listening to music on the way home from work.  It seems like I have more time that usual as well because of all the traffic because of the horrible weather we are having.  Anyway this song is Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.  I pretty much love the CD that this song is on but I find that I am just putting this song on repeat while I am driving home because it makes me want to dance.  It also makes me forget that I am stuck in traffic.

Do you like this song?  What songs and/or music are you loving now?

Let Her Go by Passenger-Musical Monday

music copy

I haven’t done a musical Monday post for months and months but I have to post this song because I am listening to it on repeat all day long.  It is called Let Her Go by Passenger.

I am not sure what it is about this song that I love so much but I can’t stop listening to it.  I bought the whole album and I have to say that I wasn’t disappointed.  I am not a huge fan of the music videos but I do love his music.  I think I like it so much because he has a very different voice than anything I have heard in years so that always a good thing to me.

What songs are you loving this week?????  Leave them below because I am always on the lookout for great music.

Top 10 Favorite YouTube Channels

youtube

This week for the Writers Workshop I am going to list my top 10 favorite YouTube channels.  This was super hard because I love so many channels so I just picked the channels that I always watch when they have a new video up.

  1. Jenna Marbles-I did a post last year about YouTube channels I loved to watch and this chick was on that list as well.  She is so funny and I agree with so much of what she says.  If you want to laugh go check her out but be warned that she swears tons in her videos.
  2. Daily Grace-I have only watch this lady for a few months but ever since I found her I watch her videos everyday and I have gone back and watched tons of her old ones as well.  She is funny and you never know what you are going to get with each of her videos.
  3. Lisa MarieTTC-This lady is super pretty and even though I have no idea what it would be like to not be able to get pregnant I can’t stop watching her video’s.  She is just starting IVF and I am hooked and I can’t wait for her to get a positive test.  She is so honest when it comes to what she is going through and the costs of IVF and for someone like me who has no idea about IVF it was educational.  Here is the link to the video where she talks about how expensive IVF is.
  4. Grav3yardgirl-I have watch this girl for years and I can’t get enough of her.  Her videos are always entertaining.  If you are looking for someone who is fun and not your typical YouTube person you  need to check her out I know you will love her.
  5. PiinkSparkles-This girls personality is super bubbly and she always puts me in a good mood when I watch her video’s.  She always have fun tutorials using bright colors and she isn’t afraid to be herself.
  6. LaToya Forever-All I am going to say is that this girl makes me laugh.  If you want to laugh you need to check her out.
  7. blndsundoll4mj-I debated whither or not to put this one on the list because she always has such controversy going on but I do enjoy most of her videos.  I wonder at times  what is really and what is fake with her but in the end it doesn’t really matter and she is entertaining to watch most of the time.
  8. Myish-I like this channel because they have different things and it isn’t just one person.  There are serveral different people that contribute and it is interesting to watch most of the time.
  9. ErinandBaby-I have watched this lady since she was pregnant with her first son and she is currently trying to have her 2nd child with her husband.  I just feel like I can relate to her and I always watch her videos the minute I get an email saying that she uploaded a new one.
  10. Annie Gallagher-I started following this lady right before she got pregnant with her twin girls and then she disappeared for awhile because life got crazy after she had the girls but she is back now and I love her videos and she is also someone who for some reason I feel like we could have a lot in common.

Now those are just 10 of the 1,000 channels that I am subscribed to but they are the ones I tend to watch the most.

What channels do you love?

Changes From Last Year To This Year

Changes

This week for the writers workshop I am going to write about what was going on this time last year and what I think of it all now that it is a year later.  I went through the whole month of April and I really only wrote 5 actual posts.  The few other posts I had were reviews of some sort. Here is a list of the posts from last year if you would like to go back and check them out.  I also will list any changes in how I am thinking from last year to this year.

  • My MS Medications- all of my medication are basically still the same and since I am stable there is no reason to change them or to even mess with them.
  • Standing Still- I forgot that I wrote this post last year and to be honest I still feel like I am standing still but I also feel like I am all alone and I know that is because of how I have treated people.  There are parts of this post that are still true and other parts that aren’t because I really don’t have any friends anymore.
  • MS Tuesdays Medications That Don’t Work For Me- nothing has changed with this post because nothing has stopped working for me.
  • How To: Break Your New Cell Phone- lets just say I haven’t broken a phone since this post and I better not break my iPhone or I am going to be pissed.
  • My Top 10 YouTube Channels- this has changed so much so I am going to make another Top 10 because I have some new ones and I think everyone would like.  I still like all the ones I listed but there are some newer ones that I want to share with everyone.

How has your blogging changed from last year to this year?

My Top 10 YouTube Channels

The last few months I have really started to watch video’s on YouTube and I want to share some of my favorites that I have found.

*It was so hard for me to chose this list.  These are the ones that I have to watch the minute their videos go up.

10-FmunkMOC-I am sure most of you have heard this comedian.  He is the one who does the Stop It B.  He did the pay your bills one that was going around on Facebook.  Everything he says is so true.  You may not want to watch him if you get offend easily or if you don’t like cursing.

9-Friday Night High Lite-I love how honest this chick is.  She will always tell it like it is and she just got engaged.

8- Carla the Bubblelush- This lady talks about cloth diapering and the struggles they are currantly having trying to conceive baby#2.  I know I am not a mom but I do love what she says and they types of videos she makes.

7-Jingleheartart-This chick is from England.  All of her videos make me laugh.  She is does crazy things and I actually started watching her video’s because I loved her bright pink hair.  I believe her heir color is green right now but she always has bright colored hair and I wish I had the guts to make me hair different colors.

6-Gracie from Ugly Face Of Beauty-I love this lady because she has put up videos about bullying and things like that.  She is another one that if she lived in the USA I would so want to meet.

5-Vanessa’s beauty channel & her vlog channel-This girl is always making me laugh.  Some of her videos she makes fun of things that all beauty gurus do on YouTube.  She is a super cool chick that I wish I could meet.

4-GabeandJesss-This lady just gave birth two twin boys and she also has a daughter that is around 2 years old or something.  This girl has tons of haters because she had her daughter when she was a teenager and then got pregnant again with the twins.  She is a great mom and I don’t think it matters how old you are when you have kids as long as they are taken care of and loved.

3-Grav3yardgirl-This girl makes me laugh so hard and I love all of her videos.  She always buys the craziest shoes and does unboxing videos when she gets them.  I love to see what shoes she will get next because they area always so fun.

2- Jenna Marbles- comedy channel & her vlog channel.  So of the her videos might offend some people but all of them make me laugh and I know most people will find her funny as well.  She posts a video every Wednesday on her comedy channel.

1-Samantha Schuerman beauty channel.  She used to do daily vlog’s that included her husband and her son but they stopped making them because of cyber bullying.

There are so many more than 10 but I didn’t want this list to go on and on forever.   If you would like me to post other of my favorites let me know and I will for sure work on another post!

*Now that I am reading over the list there are so many that I missed that I love.  I am for sure going to post some more of my favorites so you can go and check them out! 

If you do go and watch any of them let me know what you think of them!  Do you have any YouTube channels that you love to watch?  If so I want to check them out so leave the link in the comments and I will check them out.
