My mental health sucks right now. Lockdown is draining me and I feel like I’m stuck. Right now, my main way of making myself feel less glum is listening to some motivating, spirt lifting, happy, positive songs.
Music has a weird way of making you completely change your mood and it can even give you courage that you didn’t know that you had. That is why I think that music is more important than ever right now.
I’m not sure if your mental health sucks too but I do know that a positive and uplifting playlist is great all of the time. It’s just especially great when your mental health isn’t at it’s best.
Calling all Swifties – this a post for you. Whethere you’re a old fan or a newbie (like me) we all need to gather together and get excited because Taylor Swift’s ‘Lover’ album is here and I can’t get enough of it.
Since the album is completely relatable, I thought I would share some of my favourite lyrics from the album so that we can all use them to express how we are feeling from now on…
“I hate accidents, except when we went from friends to this” – Paper Rings
“I’m so sick of running as fast as I can. Wondering if I’d get there quicker if I was a man” – The Man
“Maybe you ran with the wolves and refused to settle down” – Daylight
“I lived like an island, punished you with silence” – Afterglow
“Swear to be overdramatic and true to my lover” – Lover
“I don’t wanna keep secrets just to keep you” – Cruel Summer
“Lived in the shade you were throwing. ‘Til all of my sunshine was gone, gone, gone” – I Forgot That You Existed
What are your favourite songs or lyrics from Lover?
I love Q&As as they are a great way to find out more about people. So, I asked on Twitter for people to send me some questions and they lovely Twitter people did.
Aside from your phone/laptop, what’s one object you couldn’t live without and why? – What Abigail Says
I would say my laptop but since I can’t say that, I’m going to do with my favourite teddy called Rosy. I have had her since I was very young and she is my most favourite possession. I also have another teddy bear called Honey who is also super precious so really, I can’t live without either of them.
Who is your favourite book character(s) & why? – Raiin Monkey
Okay… so… I thought about this for a while and I think that my favourite character is Eleanor from Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. She is quirky and she isn’t afraid to be different. A few other characters that I love are:
Oh my gosh, this is such a difficult question to answer! After a lot of thought, I think I’m going to have to go with Monsters Inc. It’s the film that I remember most from my childhood and probably the film that made me love Disney most of all. I also love Mulan and anything with Chip n Dale in.
I do play video games. Not too long ago, I bought a Nintendo Switch so I have been playing some Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee but my all time favourite game is Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer for the Nintendo 3DS. I’m kind of a Nintendo Nerd!
So… I started a booktube channel about one year ago. I filmed the booktube newbie tag and it got over 100 views which was a huge shock to me. I figured that people wanted to see more bookish content from me so I went with it. I started watching booktubers and seeing what tag videos were out there.
Over time, I got bored of talking about books all the time. So, I started vlogging. I pretty much daily vlogged for a while but my vlogs got boring as my depression got worse and I didn’t have the motivation to do anything.
When a bit of my motivation came back, I got into fitness. So of course, I started vlogging again and talking about fitness.
Now, I film fitness related videos at least once a month and it’s great for me because it’s not too much pressure and it’s also really fun.
What’s a song that you can’t help but jam out/sing along to when it comes on?! – Inspired By Tor
I always tell people that I don’t like Motionless In White but whenever Simon plays one of there songs, I catch myself headbanging and singing/screaming along.
We actually met on Tinder. I had only just downloaded the app and didn’t take it too seriously but Simon and I got talking and we ended up really enjoying chatting to each other. Over time, we decided to meet up and it all went from there…
If you enjoyed the Q&A feel free to leave a question in the comments for my next Q&A or I will answer in the comment section..
Sometimes, I get something in my mind and I just can’t stop thinking about it. That was the case with wanting to learn the play the electric guitar.
So… what did I do? I bought one!
I’m a compulsive spender, I know. But, in my defense, I even had a dream about owning an electric guitar. But isn’t my guitar just beautiful?!
I chose a sunshine yellow, Les Paul guitar. I bought it from Dawson’s which is great because the staff were super helpful and even answered all my dumb questions.
But anyway, buying the guitar seemed to release a new person who was trapped inside of me. I now have way more motivation and energy. I wake up easier in the morning and I am actually excited to play my guitar.
I haven’t been excited for something in a while because of my depression but it’s like I have changed now!
So, I was setting myself some goals while I’m feeling better…
Learn to play the guitar. It doesn’t have to be perfect but I would at least like to sound decent.
Hit my goal weight of 10 stone by the end of the year. I haven’t given myself much time to lose 5 stone but I think I can do it if I really try.
Stop buying pointless stuff hahahahaha like that will happen….
