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.

#2-I am sure everyone out there has already seen this one but I find myself watching it over and over because it makes me smile.


#3- I found this video through another one and I have to say that these guys are my latest musical obsession.


#4- There isn’t much to say about this next video other than I love this girls music.

#5- I love this one because it is an amazing story and like the title of the video says “Try to Watch Without Crying. . .”

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?

Cyberbullying

I recently have started watching YouTube video’s and am totally disgusted in what I have seen these past few months.  I am disgusted that there are people who have nothing better to do than  watch a video someone has put on there and then leave nasty rude comments.  If I don’t like a video that I watch I just leave the page and don’t subscribe to their channel or read their blog.  There is no reason that any human being needs to bully anyone else.  I am so tired of hearing about all the bullying that happens to people.  I don’t agree with everything I see or read but I am not going to bully someone because I don’t agree with them.  They believe what they believe and I believe what I believe.

Also I don’t understand how people can be so rude to people they have never met.  I can pretty much guarantee you that the people doing this wouldn’t say anything to the persons face if they did meet them.  At work there is a policy that says that “Do not write anything in an email message that is inappropriate to say to others face-to-face.”.  I believe that everyone needs to follow this rule.  If you can’t say it to the person’s face then you shouldn’t say it at all.

I grew up being bullied so now I don’t stand or it or even deal with it.  I have been lucky this far because no one has been mean to me yet in the blogging world but I don’t think it will stay that way forever.  I am sure at some point there will be people trying to bully me but I also know that I personally won’t allow it to happen.  I won’t stand for it and I also won’t acknowledge the people that are doing the bullying.  I believe that the bullies love the attention they get when they bully people so the keep  doing it.   I am sure if everyone just ignored them then they wouldn’t keep it up.

If anyone is being bullied hang in there I know it is hard but you can make it.  It will be a hard fight but I made it and I know all of you can make is as well.  I hope everyone had a great Christmas and has an even better New Years!
