Bullet Journaling

Have you seen it? Heard about it? Tried it?

OMG!! I am addicted!!!

I suffer from planning, making lists, and doodling!!

This is perfect for me. I have gone through two books…I also suffer from perfection syndrome.

But I gave that up…okay I’m working on that! I have a master bullet journal and a smaller companion one!! The master one holds, my writing, personal, and workout journals. My travel journal…..well I can take my collections and lists with me.

So if your interested here are some of my favorites online….

The beginning!!!

Start here!

Now step it up a notch!!!

Red Queen Review

When I first pick the book up I wasn’t impressed. It reminded me of Cinder and how it started.

Both books were slow to start…but when it picked up …it really picked up.

Such a great book@ The author had a way of taking me into her world and filling my mind with new ideas. I am working on my first elemental fantasy book. I will keep you posted.

So back to the great book. It centers around a girl who finds out she’s special….I”m not going to give it away….but in the world where Mare lives, everything depends on the color of blood that pulses through your veins.

Those that have silver blood are powerful, rich, mean, and scary. This is where I thought my brain was going to explode with he different types of silvers. It’s almost too much.  There are so many different types of silver to keep track of!! I loved it and hated it at the same time.

Overall, I think the characters are believable and real, the twists and turns were right up there. I loved it1!!

You should take a read!! Now onto Delirium….

Take a peek!!!

I’m Back!!

Self published book 2…Twisted Desire, finished draft of A Girl from Thailand….and working on my dystopian novel, Frost.

Busy busy…what about you?

Baby Boom

Talk about a baby boom! I know about nine ladies who have had babies on my facebook feed! It’s awesome to see how each mother prepares for their new bundle of joy and what they choose to share with the world.

There were a lot of sonogram photos and 3-d images that make me leery of having children….I mean have you looked at one of those things…they are a tad bit creepy. At least they are to me. I’m sure if I ever decide to have a kiddo, I’ll love the one I get….but seriously though. What if they did one of those and spotted an alien or something. CRAZY… okay…enough about that.

I have kept track of all the adorable names that are now going to grace classrooms in about five years or so….

Paxton, Declan, Ashton, Skylar, Marlon Jr., Shayden, Gunnar, Drew, Olivia, and Nora. Wow that’s a lot. Do you like the names? I do!

I can’t wait to see pics of these little people growing up!! If I have a kid I would name the boy Abner Wilson…I don’t know why. And Ruth Alice…so I can call the kid Ruthless…LOL

Okay….so that’s all for now.

N, O, P

Norah Jones, Ottis Redding, and Paul Simon are just a few of my favorites!!

K, L M

Kesha

Uh…I wrote these, but never posted them….I kept forgetting….oppseee, so enjoy!!

Problems, problems…and more Problems.

When she first arrived on the music scene I wasn’t sure I like her music, but then like all pop songs it wrapped itself around in my head. I hummed that song over and over again that summer. Then she came out with a few more. Now…now she’s got drama.

It seems to follower her around. So I decided to stay clear of it and focus on the tunes…so enjoy the song that started it all!

Linkin Park

Okay so I love the Transformers and if you notice at the end of all their movies they end it with a Linkin Park song!! How cool is that? I’ve always like the unique flare of these performers. They can emo it up or rage it up.

They fit right in with the Transformers!!

Auto-bots fall out!!!!

Murder By Death

When I met my life partner, she introduced me to her favorite underground band, Murder By Death and I was hooked. The lead singers voice reminds me of a Johnny Cash meets blue grass. It’s deep, rich, and just all around good. Not to mention they have an electric cello player! How cool is there?

So here’s a few I like….Oh and they’re lyrics are powerful….Killbot 2000 and Ash are two powerful songs.

F is for FOO!!!

Time is of the essence, I have another 12 hour shift at work tomorrow.

So here’s my favorite F artist FOO FIGHTERS!!!

 

E is for ….Ed

E is a wonderful letter when it comes to musicians. Elvis, Enya, and even Enimen. But for more me I have on favorite E artist and that is Ed Sheeran.From the first time, I’d heard “The A Team”. Have you heard it? Ed Sheeran wrote it, which is AMAZING… The drive you have to have to not only create lyrics that make sense, but you then have to add music and instruments to that….Such talent.

To me he the male version of Taylor Swift. They are both so gifted and as a writer, I appreciate their gift of creating words that pull me into their world. And did you know he dropped out of school? Yeah at 16. Brave!

When you know what you were born todo and have the drive that he has, you will do what it takes. Not to mention, he’s charitable as well. I would like to hope that he’s a down to earth person and he doesn’t seem like he’s caught up in the hustle and bustle of the commercialism of the music industry.

Written by Ed Sheeran and Johnny McDaid

Loving can hurt, loving can hurt sometimes

But it’s the only thing that I know

When it gets hard, you know it can get hard sometimes

It is the only thing that makes us feel alive

We keep this love in a photograph

We made these memories for ourselves

Where our eyes are never closing

Hearts are never broken

And time’s forever frozen still

So you can keep me

Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans

Holding me closer ’til our eyes meet

You won’t ever be alone, wait for me to come home

Loving can heal, loving can mend your soul

And it’s the only thing that I know, know

I swear it will get easier,

Remember that with every piece of you

Hm, and it’s the only thing we take with us when we die

Hm, we keep this love in this photograph

We made these memories for ourselves

Where our eyes are never closing

Hearts were never broken

And time’s forever frozen still

So you can keep me

Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans

Holding me closer ’til our eyes meet

You won’t ever be alone

And if you hurt me

That’s okay baby, only words bleed

Inside these pages you just hold me

And I won’t ever let you go

Wait for me to come home

Wait for me to come home

Wait for me to come home

Wait for me to come home

You can fit me

Inside the necklace you got when you were sixteen

Next to your heartbeat where I should be

Keep it deep within your soul

And if you hurt me

Well, that’s okay baby, only words bleed

Inside these pages you just hold me

And I won’t ever let you go

When I’m away, I will remember how you kissed me

Under the lamppost back on Sixth street

Hearing you whisper through the phone,

“Wait for me to come home.”

A for Adele

Adele busted into the music industry in 2008 and has been churning out soulful chart toping hits over the last eight years. She has been the butt of many jokes and parodys of her music, but does she let this get to her? Nope. She pushes through and stands her ground. She is a strong woman and a role model for artists. For me, her music embodies the dark and haunting feelings I keep to myself.

Also I love her voice, it’s so haunting and I know I am not the only one who belts out her music while alone in the car, or in the shower. How could you not?

So here are a few of my favorites!!
