Hey everyone!

How’s everyone doing today?

I hope everyone is getting along well and having success with their blogging.

I did a post a while ago about my top 3 songs at the moment and it was pretty popular so I thought I’d do another one like that.

Before we get into it I want to say a huge thank you to TheBlogComplainer who posted my poem on his site. Please go check him out!

Another quick note: I am hoping to be moved into the new place by the 22nd and I work everyday until the 21st so I will try to blog as often as I can but I might not be able to regularly.

With all that stated here we go!

My first current favorite song is Throne by Bring Me The Horizon.

This actually isn’t a band I listen to very often but I have been listening to this particular song a lot lately and I love the beat and I especially love the lyrics as well. Even if you don’t normally listen to that kind of music I definitely recommend it and it’s actually the song I’m listening to as I write this. (And how I just realized I need a new headset)

 

The second song that I have been listening to a lot is an old favorite and I’m not actually crazy about the verses but I absolutely love the chorus and that’s Gravity by Papa Roach. I’m not a huge rap fan and I wish the verses weren’t so screamy but I still love the song.

 

The last song is quite different from the other two since it’s a country song and it’s actually a pretty sad song but it’s been prompted by seeing someone I haven’t seen in a very very long time and I have had it stuck in my head for about a week now and that’s Mine Would Be You by Blake Shelton

 

I hope you guys liked this post and if there’s any other certain kinds of post you would like me to do let me know! Also feel free to share with your other blogger friends and I would be glad to let someone guest blog on one of my posts if you’d like!

Thanks again for all the support!

My Favorite YouTubers!

Hey everyone!

So I noticed that some of my most read and liked posts are about my favorites. Like my favorite songs and quotes and post like that. So today I wanted to talk about a few of my favorite YouTubers!

The first one I want to talk about is Gabbie Hanna. I watch her videos all the time now and one of the things I love most about them is that there’s always something different. Whether she’s trying something new like the keto diet (or should I say, torturing herself), or freaking out about getting a new piercing, there’s always something new and excited and sometimes heartfelt to watch from her. I will admit she can be a little obnoxious sometimes but, then again, aren’t we all?

I also love how relate able she is as someone who also has anxiety and depression I love how I don’t feel so alone in the anxiety and depression when I watch her videos. I definitely recommend watching her videos!

Another YouTuber I’ve been watching lately is a little less heard of but he’s fascinating nonetheless and that’s Sam Johnson.

Sam Johnson is a voice coach who analyzes and reacts to famous singers singing. He analyzes their voices and what they’re doing to achieve certain sounds. He also sings a bit himself.

What I love about Sam’s videos is that he’s very honest and down to earth. He doesn’t judge singers on anything except their singing and voices and he just calls it likes he sees it

His videos are always fun to watch on his channel here:

Another YouTuber who I enjoy watching quite a bit is Glam&Gore aka Mikey.

I like her videos because she goes Glam and Gore makeup which nowadays makeup is fairly common online but I like the quirky twist she brings to it which keeps you watching to see what she’s going to do nice and her videos are always great for a laugh.

Her channel is here: https://www.youtube.com/user/GlamAndGoreMakeup

Most of all I like how they make their viewers feel appreciated and how they’re actually doing it for their viewers.

Thanks again for all the support!

The Boy

Hey everyone!

My former post about my favorite songs was pretty popular so I thought I’d write a review of the movie I just watched last night called “The Boy”. This has been advertised on tv a bit and it’s a horror movie about an older couple who hire a nanny to watch their son….who turns out to be a doll. Now before I continue writing this I want to add that I’m going to try to write this with as little spoilers as possible but there still might be some. So I apologize for that.

Now I did like this movie. It wasn’t as scare as I would’ve thought given all the hype but I still thought that is was good. I will say the movie spends a lot of time trying to get you to believe it’s going in one direction and make you think one thing is happening when, in reality, that’s not what’s happening at all! The twist ending is crazy but I thought it was pretty cool. I still recommend seeing it though and let me know what you thought of it!

I know that was a pretty short review but I didn’t want to give too much away.

There is something else I’d like to share as well.

As some of you might know, I have been getting more into makeup and doing my makeup and trying to do videos as well. Recently I entered a giveaway on YouTube to win Jefree Stars new palette, Thirsty. I am still waiting on the results of that but, if I don’t win it, I will probably buy the palette. Or an Urban Decay palette. So, down below let me know if you’d like to see that video and also if there’s a specific palette you’d like me to use! Thank you 🙂

News and new articles

Hey everyone! How are you? I’m sorry it’s been a while since I’ve been posting new things. I’ve been working a LOT recently and have been too tired when I’m not working to really post anything. However that’s hopefully going to change and that’s kind of what this post is about. I want to turn blogging into a living. I hate my current job because I work with the public and it makes me irritable and annoyed and quite tired as well to be around people all day. I much prefer to have time to myself and just relax. Since it takes money to do something for a living, I have made a Patreon page which I will include the link to if anyone wants to subscribe. Basically in return for subscribing you will receive a monthly newsletter letting you know about upcoming articles and videos (yes I will be trying to transition into video blogging alongside this blog) before anyone else knows about them and little tidbits and details others won’t know about. If you pick the next tier up to subscribe you will also receive a shout out both in this blog and whatever video I post after you subscribe as a thank you! As my blog and video blogging increases and my following gets bigger, there will be better rewards and information for subscribers.

If you can’t help through Patreon that’s absolutely ok! Just having people read my posts and be interested in what I’m doing and talking about is amazing to me! So thank you SO much for your support and for inspiring me to continue writing!

So, since as of yet I don’t have any subscribers, I’m going to let ALL of my wonderful readers know what’s coming up. First is going to be an article about motorcycle gangs and their connection (Real and imagined) to hell and Satan. After that I’m going to try to get back into writing fiction with my short stories and poems and I also want to do a makeup video. So, that’s what’s in the works and I’m so excited for you all to join me in this journey! Thank you again. As always, have a good night!

Identity Crisis

Hey everyone!

This is the article I mentioned in my last post that I would be doing.

The backstory for this post is that I watched a documentary the other night on youtube that featured a youtube star that I watch pretty frequently. She’s gothic and she lives in Germany. The documentary was on gothic life and the gothic scene and the lives of individual gothic people. While I was watching the video I just related so much to what was being said and the people that were featured in the video. When the video was done I started thinking about my personality and the things I’m interested. I looked around my room which is covered in Nightmare Before Christmas and my window which is covered in a Nightmare Before Christmas blanket. I thought about my 90% black wardrobe and black shoes and how I spend my free time taking pictures of abandoned places and cemeteries and realized that I identify as gothic, or at least some subset of gothic.

This made me sad. Not because I wasn’t thrilled (I was). But because I can’t truly be myself. See while I was thinking about all this, I also thought about my anxiety and my depression and my family and job and my boyfriend. I realized that none of them would understand or accept me as a goth. My family for the most part and my boyfriend’s family is very religious and my boyfriend himself, while a very supportive and understanding person, wouldn’t be very tolerant of that lifestyle. Would I love to dress in black all the time and do up my face and paint my room black and red? Yes, yes I would. However, the people I love and care about most wouldn’t accept me anymore and I feel like that’s too big of a price to pay. I’m relatively happy on a daily basis and have developed a sort of day to day routine. My town in general also isn’t very welcoming to outsiders.

I have decided not to adapt the lifestyle but to be comforted by my books and poetry and visiting cemeteries and abandoned places in my free time. Does anyone else struggle with this or something similar? If so, how did you cope with it? Let me know in the comments!

PS: I mentioned above how photography is a way I cope with this struggle and also my anxiety. Below are some pictures I’ve taken if you’re interested!

Also please no messages saying I’m making the wrong decision or that I’m being stupid etc. It’s my own personal choice I’ve made. Thank you.
