Today is all about movies and shows! As I haven't been working these past couple months, I've been cleaning, writing, working on my video game (the outlining parts), and watching YouTube and movies/shows on Netflix and Tubi.
Charisma found Tube first, I just joined the bandwagon, but I've got to say, it's pretty awesome. There's a lot of old shows and movies that are on it for free and there are hardly any ads.
I like to watch crazy and not widely known romance movies and they are absolutely crazy. Like. I wish I was kidding. Tubi has those movies that no one wanted to watch but needed a platform and I love them. Some are absolute gems that have horrible covers (I watched a pretty good Christmas Prince one that I have to say is 10/10) and some movies are absolutely awful that they bring me such amusement.
The good stuff.
Have you watched any good movies or shows recently? Let me know down in the comments! I've heard that 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' is finally back on Netflix, so if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.
Stay Safe, Stay Home and Until Next Time My Friends... Adieu
Hello Twisters! Sorry for not posting last week. I work on Mondays (Thursdays and Saturdays) and I get really tired when I get back home. As a result, I almost immediately take a nap, then take it chill for the rest of the day. Also! Last week was a complete mesh of days. I had to constantly ask what day it was because time?? And dates?? What's that?
Anyways! I'm writing this at midnight to ensure that it gets out on time. :) You're welcome.
But during this pandemic, a lot of people are at home and some struggle to think of things to do other than binge Netflix (or any other video service), sleep or just vibe. Now, to be fair, this is what I do for the majority of the time, BUT!!
I do a few other things as well!
First off! As I like to draw, I've been trying to play around with my art skills. If you're interested in drawing, give it a shot! You've got a lot of time in the day right now. There are a lot of online workshops and videos that you can use to start your art journey!
Next, you could start a YouTube channel! Lots of people are on there and it's a great way to show your hobby or work off to the world! You could play games, sit down and talk, do a craft, make a skit, etc.! There's so much that you can do for a YouTube video, it's honestly wild.
Another thing you can do is to clean and switch up your room. Sure, that doesn't always sound like the best option right off the top, but hear me out. Cleaning and switching up your room is such a refreshing and satisfying task that it makes you feel super accomplished with your life when it's done. I don't know how, it just days. Not complaining though!
Cook! Bake! Experiment in the kitchen! Follow some recipes! Learn how to not burn the house down when boiling water! It's really fun, but only fully works if you make something small and simple, then work your way up. Trust me, from personal experience, it gets really discouraging when you try for the really complicated one first go without previous experience. I tried to make a different version of hash browns. It did not work. But that's besides the point!
You've got an imagination! You have some kind of tool/medium: a notebook, computer, your phone. Write! You don't have to go full out, "Let's write a novel!", but there's definitely time in the day to at least pump out 100 - 1000 words a day. If you're like me, you're lucky enough to get 500 words a day, but eh. Again, not the point. (If you need a support group to help you write, then I suggest popping over to NaNoWriMo! They've got a ton to offer when it comes to writing!)
And the last one, but is SO SUPER IMPORTANT! Take this time to do as much self care as needed. I know this time is hard, so take this time to take a bath. Do some face masks. Body scrub. Paint your nails. Cut your hair. Refresh your closet. Do the things that make you happy. Do the things that allow you to breathe in a deep breath like you've just inhaled some nice filtered air. Yes, I do like that. And yes, it smells nice.
Okay! That's all I've got for you all today. Or tonight. Whichever it is, I suppose. I'm off to bed now, to sleep. Because, as I said earlier, I work on Mondays, so I work in a few hours.
Catch ya later, Twisters!
P.S. The shop is coming along nicely! It isn't without a few bumps, but that's to be expected. I'll probably give a more in-depth update in my next blog post!
Hey Twisters! Charisma here.
First, I'd like to apologize for the day late post! I started work yesterday (a conversation for another post) and, after eating, almost fell instantly to sleep! But I'm here now!
In my last post, I told you all that I would be opening up an art shop soon and it's still true! I'm going to be opening up the shop with a few stickers. Two of them are going to be my OCs, Jonah and Eriol! I'm quite excited, since I think it looks great, but that's creator's/artist's bias.
For the third sticker, I'm going to be holding a series of polls on my Instagram that'll determine its design. Hopefully you all can participate in it! I'll hold it Wednesday, April 29th, at 1:30 p.m. EST. I'm really excited to see the results! I'm not even sure what to expect, I'm just going to gun-ho it and be surprised.
Anyways, that's all I have for an update. I'm getting a tripod soon, so there will be YouTube updates soon.
Catch ya later, Twisters!
Hello Twisters! We're back at it again with our weekly schedule. Bianca now has a computer, so we each have a device to blog on! (We've both independently tried the Weebly app and we both gave up on trying to figure out how on EARTH it works.)
So, now that we have this extra time on our hands because of the virus, Bianca and I have been trying our best to get as much as we want accomplished as we possibly can. For me personally, I'm going to open up my art shop soon! Trying to find suppliers and where I should get things sourced is definitely an interesting time, but it's going fairly well.
I've also been trying to get further in all of the other, previously planned, items that we were working on. We're still chipping away at that comic (a lot has been happening on that end) and hopefully we can "open up" the rest of our blog in the next coming months. At least, that's my hope.
I don't really have much to offer in terms of an update than that! Bianca and I are both trying to start up a YouTube channel, hers is on studying and mine will be on all things art related! Mostly an artist trying to get a shop up and running.
Anyways, thanks so much for being with us on this journey! I hope everyone is well and safe!
Catch ya later, Twisters!
It's the New Year Twisters!
Year of the Rat!
A new decade!
2020 = Great Gatsby Parties All. Day. You know. If you can afford it, then definitely! But if you're poor, then we can cheer with our water and apple juice.
Twisters, there are so many cool, awesome things that are going to be happening this year! And it'll actually happen! We're already in the works for a lot of things and it will take some time, but we're not going to push it aside any longer.
We are going to blog every week. We're going to update the Twisted Two Official Instagram, but we'll actually be switching up the Instagram a little. Instead of doing updates, we'll be having a twin Instagram! I've wanted one for a super long time, so hopefully this is the change that will be good for both the blog and our update schedule!
Well, I'll leave it here for now. Keep your eyes open to the new things that'll be happening! We'll let you know here all the big new stuff!
Catch ya later, Twisters!
But right now, we're focusing on one because it's less plot heavy than the other. IT'S HAPPENING THOUGH!
As of today, I am currently lining the first page. You know how people are like, "Oh yeah. This [specific thing] takes a long time, just so you know!" WELL. THAT'S MAKING A COMIC!
It takes a lot of time and effort, but it's really fun! Like, superbly fun!
For this comic, I'm going to be rough sketching, lining, and flat coloring the first chapter while Bianca does the shading and the environments. It's a pretty even balance, which will become even more so as we get the hang of everything.
We'll be publishing on Tapastic and Webtoons, online comic publishing platforms. We'll give more information soon, but right now, we want to keep working on it before we do the grand big reveal.
AND I'LL POST SOME ART WITH IT SO IT'LL BE FANTASTIC!
Catch ya later, Twisters!
P.S. Make sure to check out and follow the Twisted Two Official Instagram!
Sorry for not being here Twisters! To be REALLY short, we moved! It was a nice move, although somewhat chaotic, and was really what I needed, to be honest.
Life's been good so far! Nothing really new's been happening, just job hunting. Finding a job is actually really hard? Didn't think it would be so difficult, but eh. A girl's gotta learn sometime, you know? I've applied to a few places and I've had an interview, but I gotta keep applying and searching! Other than that, nothing new has been happening. Been settling in pretty nicely.
We also have a schedule finalized! We're going to be starting small, which means that we only be focusing on updating/posting on the Twisted Two Blog, so all of the other places will be down in construction/in hiatus.
TWISTED TWO - MONDAY
Yup! We'll be posting every week with some new, cool content! Look forward to all the new things that will be happening!
And if you ever miss anything, make sure you check out the Official Twisted Two Instagram for all of our updates!
Until then, catch ya later Twisters!
In the world of video games, there are moments when it's going to get tough. And in those moments, you can't just look down at your controller and spam whatever buttons because you're confused (though this will happen many, many times; this has happened to me waaaaaay too much). So, as you continue to play video games, your hand-eye coordination becomes better. You've memorized what button is where, what each of those buttons do, and when a difficult situation arises, you will have everything down.
Another thing that is very evident in the world of video games are the puzzles. There are a lot of puzzles. Too many, in all honesty. One of the key features of the Legend of Zelda is the puzzles contained inside. And trust me, they do get tough (just try beating Hero Mode). In these types of situations, you'll need to think and use your knowledge that you've gained from the game and just basic logic (both will soon grow) to solve them. Puzzle-solving is also very wonderful if you ever want to tackle an escape room. These are known for being very tricky and you need to think outside of the box to solve them (just like in Fetch!).
*throws hands up into the air pointing at the skills* See! Important skills!
A Visual Story
Have you ever read a book and bonded so much with the characters you felt as if you were travelling alongside them? Have you ever wanted to see what was actually happening and what the places actually looked like? Playing a video game lets you see all those things.
A video game is a book and a movie combined. It's a playable movie; it's a visual story. You still get very attached to the characters. You still get to cry with them. You still get to laugh with them. You still can experience heartbreak and sadness with them. But you can also see (in clear high definition, hopefully) what it was like for them. How it all, those emotions, those experiences, their position in life, came to be.
You're definitely not getting cheated out of an experience. Not at all.
You're getting an enhanced version of one.
Have you played video games before? If so, which one is your favorite? If you haven't, do you want to? Tell us in the comments!!
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has created an Advent Calendar for the Christmas Season. They created this calendar so that, leading up to Christmas Day, people could do acts of service of do some of the things that Christ did.
I discovered this Advent Calendar this past Sunday, as my bishop introduced it to all those that were in the congregation. I was very excited to start participating, because I love the thought of serving.
Service was always something that I really enjoyed. I found it very fun and I could do it with the people that I loved. So when this opportunity came, I new exactly what my first act of service was going to be:
Share it with all of you!
Light the World
I was so inspired by this video, it almost made me cry. (I didn't want to cry in my seminary class... so I tried to hold back the tears. ;3) When I saw this video, I wanted to do everything in my power to serve those around me, but I knew that I couldn't serve everyone in the entire world (because that was my inital feeling).
Writing this blog post on this was the least I could do, and I really wanted you all to 1) take part in this lovely act of daily service and 2) know that Bianca and I were still alive.
#LIGHTtheWORLD Advent Calendar
And what's so amazing about the acts of service is that technology can be used to help spread the word! If you want to be a part of this wonderful service opportunity, go start serving! But, if you want to let your friends know, use the hashtag #LIGHTtheWORLD. :3
I hope you take this chance to serve those around you and be as Christ was: a light to the world.
Matthew 5:14 - 16
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Let's start the Christmas season with a whole lot of service, joy, happiness and love!
Who We Are

Exploration is the doorway to opportunity and the endless possibilities of helping and reaching out to others is something that we endeavor to create.
