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!
Happy New Years Twisters!
Sorry that we haven't been super active. Bianca and I are planning on graduating early (graduating in our Junior year!), which means a heck ton of extra school work. Trying to get those extra credits to graduate are super tough and the load work is crazy, but we'll get through it! I'll just take a lot of planning and prioritizing. Especially to include blogging again.
And with that, I'm here to share with you my new year resolutions!
New Years Resolutions
Anyways, that's all I have for my resolutions! There are probably more, but I can't remember them right now.
Thank you so much for making 2018 a great year! Here's to an even better year!
See you in 2019 Twisters!
Last year today (man was that a LONG time ago) I posted a blog post called 'Follow Your Inspiration Month and Chocolate'. It was in that post that I said that I would be doing 'it' (I'm not exactly sure what it was...) every year.
I decided not to do it this year and probably never again.
Before I let you all go, I wanted to share this really cute recipe video with you (it has an adorable song with it. It sounds like something that would be in a Studio Ghibli moive).
I absolutely love instrumental music and 2 composers - Steve Jablonsky and Hans Zimmer - just make these instrumental songs that feels like it's giving you power, strength, the ability to do anything! :3
So I'm going to share those wonderful powerful songs! :D
Steve Jablonsky - Arrival to Earth
Steve Jablonsky - Optimus
Steve Jablonsky - Ender's Game [Full Soundtrack]
Hans Zimmer - Time
Hans Zimmer - Time [Instrumental Core Remix]
So, what do you all think? I love the sense of absolute strength, though your just listening to a song! Those are the songs that I love! Songs that uplift me and make me feel like I can do anything! :D
What's you're favorite? I don't have one, but I'd love to hear what your pick is! Tell me in the comments!
I am SUPER sorry that you guys haven't received a post from the guest blogger yet, but we've been having some minor.... difficulties.
So please, please, PLEASE stay intuned! If the guest blogger doesn't blog on Saturday, I'll make sure they blog next week.
(Follow Your Inspiration Month ends on March 1st!)
I guest blogger had to reschedule from today to tomorrow. So expect something great and awesome tomorrow! :3
A lot of people take their beauty for granted. Sometimes, I do to. I just think, 'I'm good enough for the world and that what's matters most'. But, it doesn't matter if you're good enough for the world, it matters if you're are good enough for yourself... And are you good enough for yourself?
are, and no one can change that. You light up a room when you walk in, you make your friends smile and laugh, you help make people feel they're special. That's what YOU can do. You can do so much more in life, you just have to believe in YOURSELF.
(P.S. I give credit to DespicableMeQuotes.org for the image. The image is not mine, I just found it on that site.)
Guest Blogger is coming tomorrow? Are you guys excited? Tell me in the comments!
We've got a surprise for you! And it's an exciting one too! We're getting a guest blogger to do a blog post on the 23rd! I'm super excited, and I know this person SUPER well. But, no more spoilers... What do you guys think?
Yes, yes, I understand, it's mind blowing and super UNBELIEVABLE, but I'm really happy to have this person do a blog post for us! BTW, this person is super good at doing blog posts, so you won't be disappointing.
It's going to be awesome!
Are you excited? Tell me in the comments!
Konnichiwa everybody! :3 (I absolutely love Japanese!)
Now, for those otaku's (anime and manga fans) out there, you probably know what konnichiwa is, but for those of you who don't, konnichiwa is Japanese for hello. :3 It's pronounced co-KNEE-chi-wah. Very simple, and it looks amazing with the cherry blossoms (which in Japanese is Sakura). I wanted something different than the Aloha that we used to have up, but still use the same element of a different language.
How do you guys like it? I hope you all like it, Bianca and I had a long... discussion on what the Twisted Two header should be. We each had a different vision and my vision was NOT at all what you see on the header. I wanted something really crazy, so crazy, I have no idea what it was. But we decided on this and I'm really happy with it. :D
Please comment what your favorite language is!
So Charisma and I have offically decided to shut down the Monday Mayhem's and Saturday Specials, because it just wasn't working for us. Instead, we are going to do Top Ten Tuesdays created by The Broke and the Bookish. We will have redesign the page that use to be for Monday Mayhem and Saturday Specials and instead use it for the links for our Top Ten Tuesday Posts.
I, for one, am SUPER excited, because I saw TONS and TONS of other people do this and in my head, I was thinking, 'Where in the world did they find that?' AND I FOUND IT! It actually took me a long time to find it. I had to go to like, three different blogs to find this one. It was super funny, but very nerve-racking, although, I did find some pretty good blogs.
Not only do I have Enrichment Classes today I've got Yoga! And that gets me all pumped up and super happy. X3 How awesome is that? Okay, so you know how Disney is making a live-action Cinderella? Yeah, I went to the Disney blog and apparently Disney is making a live-action Belle next! I am SO excited!
I'm mean don't you just love Belle?
Okay, okay, I get it. Only some people LOVE Belle, others like her and all. But really who doesn't love her? She's got the cutest outfits.
She reads like, all the time. ALL THE TIME!! I WANT TO READ ALL THE TIME LIKE SHE DOES. SHE CAN SING AND READ PEOPLE.... SING AND READ! I can't do that...
Yes, Belle, I'm sure you did! (Would you mind telling me the title?) I would love to talk to Belle, IT WOULD BE LIKE TALKING TO A CELEBRITY!
WE LOVE YOU BELLE!
BTW, reading is so much fun! IT TAKES YOU TO BEAUTIFUL PLACES! I like to read whenever so I can escape to my Fantasy World (Reality.... It sounds different from Fantasy huh?). Again, I'll be doing a blog post in Coming Soon: Book, I've got TONS to tell you guys about! So stay in tuned!
