5 Break Up Songs That Will Never Get Old (Des Blog-a-thon #8)

Hello, bloggers, we all been through a break-up and we play certain songs that get us through it. If you are going through one or have experienced any type of break up these are 5 break up songs that will never get old on your playlist. Maybe you will see some songs that are new to you. 

  

Irreplaceable – Beyoncé: Back in 2006 this was every girl anthem when they went through a breakup.  This is a song to tell your ex that you’re fed up with their bull crap and they can make the nearest exit out of your life. Let’s face it this is an addicting song. Think about how hard it is to find someone who tells you they don’t like this song. Beyoncé is the queen of good music.

Say Goodbye – Chris Brown: If you listen to this song, yeah you’ll get in your feelings because no one wants to leave out of a relationship with someone they love deeply. You only want to dedicate this song to someone if you want, to be honest, and tell them you are not happy in your relationship anymore. Chris Brown made it clear in the song that he still loves his girl, but they are growing apart. I have a love/hate relationship with the music video though cause he basically cheated on his loyal girlfriend. I respect that he was bold enough to confess to his girl that he doesn’t want her anymore.

Confessions Part 2 – Usher: This is another one of those songs where you’re ready to tell your boyfriend/girlfriend the truth. If I’m not mistaken the story of the song is based on a part of Usher’s life. Don’t quote me on it though.  You can tell Usher didn’t want to confess anything to his girlfriend, but he had no choice. This song stays on replay on my playlist.

Too Little too Late – Jojo: Jojo sang her heart out in this song. The music video for this song represented Jojo pain very well. I love music videos that give the perfect visualization of a singer lyrics. This is a song that will have you crying over and over because the lyrics are so real. It’s easy to relate to if you experience pain in a relationship.

Take a Bow – Rihanna: The music video for this song stayed on tv. This song was released a while after Rihanna’s breakup with Chris Brown, so you know everyone assumed she was talking about him. If you reached your breaking point dealing with lies and other petty problems then this is the right song for you. I love Rihanna short haircut in the video.

If you enjoyed this post I’ll do a part 2. Do you see any songs you’re familiar with? If so, which one is your favorite? Maybe one day these songs will be added to your breakup song playlist.

90’s Movies I Love (Des Blog-a-thon) #6

Sister Act 2 (1993): Honestly, I think Sister Act 2 is better than the first movie lol. I guess because the second one brings more entertainment. Whoopi Goldberg (Sister Mary Clarence) brings the movie to life along with the other characters. She is so hilarious. I love how she spoke her mind and changed the kids in a positive way. I love when Lauryn Hill (Rita in the movie) sings in this movie! Her voice is so beautiful. She’s one of my favorite singers by the way. I can’t forget about one of my favorite parts when the students are performing the song “Oh  Happy Day!” It was funny when Wesley shocked Sister Mary Clarence when he hit those high pitch singing notes. All the kids in the movie have talent though. This movie is on Hulu Plus if you’re interested in watching it.  

(Oh Happy Day scene skip the video to 2;39 to see when Wesley shocks Sister Mary Clarence)

Good Burger (1997): This movie came out the year I was born. Every time when I went to my cousin house we used to re watch this movie a lot on the VCR. I can quote most of the words to this movie. I love the scene when Ed starts singing “I’m a dude, she’s a dude, he’s a dude, cause we’re all dudes hey!” Kenan (Dexter in the movie) and Kel (Ed in the movie) always are the perfect duo when they play in comedy movies. Ed always was clueless in the movie lol. You can watch this movie on Netflix if you haven’t seen it before or want to re watch it. 

(Ed singing scene)

Pocahontas (1995): First let me start with saying how beautiful Pocahontas is as an animated character. Whoever drew her took their time. I wanted to be her so bad when I was younger. My favorite song she sings on the movie is “Just around the Riverbend”. The song always touches my heart. A funny thing I want to mention is I used to try to reenact the part when Pocahontas jumped off the cliff into the water. Instead of jumping off an actual cliff I would get on a chair and jump from it and pretend that the floor was water lol. Don’t judge me I had a wild imagination when I was younger. Fun Fact: Pocahontas is a real person back in my junior year of high school my teacher told us in history class that Pocahontas was a little girl when she met John and they weren’t in a relationship like in the movie. She die as a young adult from a European disease.

(Just around the riverbend song)

( Jumping off Cliff scene)

Matilda (1996):  Matilda is such a sweet heart. It sucks that her parents treated her wrong.  She was a gifted child. Her teacher is so sweet. It made me happy when the teacher decided to adopt her because I knew she would take good care of Matilda. I used to think I had magic powers like Matilda with moving objects around the room if I concentrated on them hard enough lol.

 George of the Jungle (1997): I had this movie on VCR. I can’t even count how many times I used to watch this movie and laugh at how ridiculous George acted over Jane. George was crazy in love with her.They were a cute couple. I liked how they had the Gorillas talking like humans. Especially the smart one that lived with George he had some funny jokes.

I enjoyed all these movies growing up. Also, I hope you enjoyed reading this post. So tell me what are your favorite movies? I’m interested in reading everyone’s comments!

Anxiety (Des Blog-a-thon) #5

Anxiety…

You make me feel awful

You make going out in public uncomfortable

I always feel like a pair of eyes are staring at me even though their not

I can’t sleep at night because you cause me to over think little mistakes that I made

Whether it was from today, yesterday, a year or month ago…

Why can’t you leave me alone?

You’re a big distraction to my life

Why can’t I be “normal” like others?

Don’t  get me started on trying to explain anxiety without being judged

It’s difficult for anyone to understand if they never experienced it…

So, I sit alone as an outcast dealing with anxiety alone…

Common Bad Habits Most People Have (Des Blog-a-Thon) #2

As humans, it’s natural to have a few bad habits here and there. None of us are perfect. In this blog post, you might be able to relate to a few talked about in the list below.

Overthinking – Usually over thinking comes from worrying or maybe your mind is trying to tell you something urgent. I know we all can relate to this. Overthinking causes us to lose sleep because our minds are so busy distracting us with tiny problems. This is frustrating and annoying. If you have this problem try to trick your mind to relax by clearing your head. If that doesn’t work for you take another bath or shower to relax your body. Another tip is to eat a snack that makes your belly full. I don’t know about anyone else but when my belly is full I get very sleepy lol.

 

Eating Junk Food – No matter how hard some of us try to go on a diet or “eat healthy” we find ourselves falling back into the cycle of eating junk food. First of all, trying to eat healthy is expensive and some of us don’t have money to spend on certain foods even though spending the money could be worth it. Second of all, cooking healthy requires a lack of flavor you are use to in junk foods. I’m not an expert on making tasty healthy meals, but I’m sure there are ingredients that can make this type of meal taste better. Third, we don’t think about the effects it will cause our health later in life. 

Staying in Toxic Relationships – Let’s be honest love can blind you from all the warning signs in a toxic relationship. We try to visualize the problems into a positive light, but in the back of our minds, we know something isn’t right. Please don’t be oblivious if you notice problems in your relationship right away. Be grateful for being wise enough to catch the signs before you’re stuck being miserable. Even if you don’t see the problems ahead of time it’s never too late to end the relationship I REPEAT IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO END THE RELATIONSHIP!! I’ll rather for you to be happy with your significant than feeling insecure, disrespected, or afraid. 

Not budgeting and saving money – Now I know everyone is in charge of their money and can do whatever they want with it. I’m not typing this to tell you what to do. I believe we all should save a bit of money here and there especially when a “rainy day” ( urgent need of money for something important when your other funds are low) comes along. Saving some extra cash could come in handy one day. Sometimes we have to think about how useful saving money for our future is important. You can put aside at least 1 to 5  dollars to put in your piggy bank or where ever else you decide to stash your money.  I know that’s a small amount to start with but it’s really up to you to decide how much you want to stash now and then. Budgeting and saving money is difficult especially if you have bills to pay. Using coupons on items you buy from the store can possibly help save you a couple of dollars. Not going out to eat several times of the week can make a difference also. Try to shop at affordable stores that have items that fit in your price range so you don’t have to spend a chunk of money at an expensive store. These are just a few tips that could benefit you if you’re serious about budgeting and saving money.

My Daily Routine (Des Blog-a-thon) #1

Let’s see where I want to start…

When I wake up I check my phone 📱. Usually, I have a load of notifications from Twitter, iMessages, Facebook, and sometimes my blog. Oh yeah, I check the time to cause I wake up super early like 5 or 6 in the morning lol. It’s crazy because I don’t be having anywhere to go.

 

 

 

 

 

After I lay in the bed for a while checking my notifications. I get up to take my shower and stuff. When I’m done with that I get on my laptop to check my school assignments for the day. I have to make sure I stay on top of that. If I do have school work I get started on it right away if not I start thinking what blog and YouTube posts I should make for the day. If you’re interested in watching some of my Youtube videos here’s the link http://bit.ly/2pBSGvV to my channel. 

 

 

 

 

Y’all would think I would go try to find some breakfast to eat after I wake up, but I don’t eat until the afternoon. I have no idea why I wait so long to feed myself when I’m home lol. 

Anyways, I am lazy most of the day. Sometimes I try to find something good to watch on tv. In the mornings I usually watch the Jamie Foxx Show, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and catch up on some reality shows. My eyes are glued on my phone though because I am on social media. It’s crazy how social media grabs our attention and causes a big distraction from any other task we are trying to do.

If I get bored with watching tv (when I’m actually paying attention to it lol) I’ll do some cleaning around the house or read my book “The Hate That U Give” by Angie Thomas. I recommend my readers to read that book it’s pretty good.

Oh yeah, if my boyfriend is off work I usually talk to him on Facetime for a while. Time flies by faster when we are on Facetime together. I enjoy our conversations.

Honestly, I don’t have a very interesting life. Most of the time I am chilling in the house away from chaos from the outside world. Sometimes, I do go out and that changes up my daily routine. I thank God for that because being in the house gets boring when you want to have some fun from time to time.

I’m hoping everyone enjoyed this post. I tried to make it a little interesting for y’all. Don’t be afraid to follow me on my social media. The links will be down below.
