Growing!

I’ve grown a lot as a blog. Because of this, I built a Patreon and it’s even under my blogs name. I’ve been going at this for long enough now that I felt it was necessary to finally get that made so I feel like a real creator. That and I have my paypal built. I know I’m not the best in the business but I’m really trying to grow as a person and as a blogger / writer so I can start making a living on it. Needless to say I’m really learning a lot and I appreciate everyone who reads my work. Even if it is mostly rambles, I still love all of you! I really can’t thank you enough.

I’m sitting here listening to Sabaton and mildly drunk hoping that future me fixes this post enough (I did, don’t worry you idiot) that I don’t sound completely dumb. Because I’ve been writing for like, two hours trying to get words onto a document for my future novel. Do you write? I’d love to get to see your writing! Especially when I leave Chesterfield and head to Leicester. It’ll be more “what do I do” down there. For those who don’t know, I have family down there. To be more .. precise, my grandmothers cousin. She’s an amazing woman. Last time I was in England, I made it a point to visit her, and it was a great time. Every day she made a beautiful meal and kept me entertained while I was visiting.
On a side note, why is Leicester pronounced Lester? I’m still bothered by that.

Have you listened to The Red Baron? Because I’m addicted to this song right now! I’ve listened to this song on repeat for a few hours now and it’s amazing! (Can you tell I was drunk when I wrote this? I really do enjoy this song though. Frig I must have listened to it on repeat for almost an hour) This band is truly amazing!

Now that I’ve sobered up a bit, I’m hilarious when I’ve had too much to drink. I just ramble and shit. But that’s okay because I actually write. I’ve noticed reading back on this post, it’s basically a Sabaton love letter. Which in all reality isn’t a bad thing as they’re one of my favourite bands! I really started writing this post to say I built my Patreon and PayPal properly so if you really like my stuff than you can support me!

Once I get through this first draft of my novel, I’ll start posting for advice and such. I’ve been trying to write this stupid book for almost two years. I really hope that as I get to that point, everyone will be as excited as I am for it. Something about making a whole world yourself is just exciting ya know?

I head home a week from today and I’m honestly wishing I was here longer. I love the friends and family I have! But at the same time, I miss my dad, and Shadow! Tomorrow is the 1940’s market, so I’m going to that! Man, if you ever get the chance, this place is amazing! Just seeing the people was worth the trip for me! Anyway, I’ve talked your ear off, have a good day!

Thanks for dealing with my rambles! I love you all!

Feeling Musical

Yesterday blessed my Twitter feed with High School Musical trending. After that I’ve been just breaking into song, everywhere that’s inappropriate essentially. I was washing dishes dancing to fifties music and going all out. Or cooking dinner rapping as best I could to some Eminem. Music makes my house come to life and I’m honestly so happy I’ve been grooving more.

“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.” — Billy Joel

I was telling my dad about the whole musical situation and he’s one hundred percent into it. We spent way too long singing and being huge dorks. My boyfriend on the other hand, has two left feet and zero groove so, there’s some “but I don’t wanna!!!” going on.

Being in the awkward age group I’m in, stuff like this makes me feel so much better about being me. I love the musical atmosphere I’m creating around myself. If I were more confident in my singing I’d sing literally everywhere. Like waiting and riding the bus, or even while walking through the mall. Actually I think that’s a new goal! Learn to not suck at singing! My friends would hate me if I did, but it would be 100% worth it.

Anyways…
Enjoy my posts? Let me know!
