FavoritesFriday #2

It’s the end of the month, again. Weird right, how the months just keep ending? Okay, this just got too real. For the past two months I’ve been doing these post where I tell you my month’s favorites. And I’m about to do it again!
For the people that want to see my other two posts, there right here and here.

Here are my July favorites.
I always kick things off with some music.
You’ve probably heard this by now, I mean everybody is talking about it, but Disney’s Pixar did it again! They made this awesome new movie, Inside Out. I’ve already seen it twice. Go see it! Let your eyes enjoy the awesomeness.
Okay, back to the music. Pixar always has these fun shorts before the actual movie starts and this time they nailed it. I can’t actually find the clip, but I do have the song! It’s about a volcano that’s looking for love. Who doesn’t like a volcano that can sing!

I lava it!

I love reading, most people on wordpress probably do. I mean, we write blogs for a reason. We like words! This month I’ve got sucked into the world of Game of Thrones. Those books are truly amazing. The way George R.R. Martin can create a universe with such fascinating characters is truly amazing. It’s a lot to get into, though. To be able to create a universe as complex as his, he needs a lot of words. But trust me, it’s worth it.
I’m curious how he’s going to end this epic tale, but we’ll just have to wait and see.

Six-word story
Every month I look for another six-word story. I just love how six words can mean so much more! This one’s good!
Painfully, he changed ‘is’ to ‘was’.

Some of you may know by now that my older sister loves to cook and bake, and is crazy good at it. Well, this month she made something we call ‘spekkoek’. I don’t know what it is, exactly, but it’s amazing.

This is the actual 'spekoek' that my sister made!!!

I don’t just love words. I love art as well. ‘The creation of Adam’ by Michelangelo. I think most of you have seen this painting before. I don’t know why, but I’ve always loved this painting. Michelangelo was a true artist.

I always add a joke as well. I mean, everybody needs to laugh once in a while.
An old woman walked into a dentist’s office, took off all her clothes and spread her legs. The dentist said, ”I think you have the wrong room.”
”You put in my husband’s teeth last week,” she replied. “Now you have to remove them.”

Just some words to inspire you.
“I can and I will. Watch me!”

And last but not least.

I like to end my posts on a high note. There are so many inspiring bloggers out there who write amazing stories, I just want to share their awesomeness with all of you. This month it’s a post that made me ugly-cry, because I was laughing so much!

Have a nice Friday.


WordWednesday #5

You ready? Let’s do this. Here’s how it works: No plan. No ideas. Just words!

For a moment, just for a moment, there’s silence. Then, out of nowhere, the music reappears. The sounds fill the air. Everybody can feel it. The music makes the room come to life. People start moving, dancing.
For a moment, just for a moment, everybody feels free. As long as the music keeps playing there is peace. No hate, no worries, just the music.
For a moment, just for a moment, nobody cares.
Until the silence returns.

I hope you liked these words.

Have a nice Wednesday.

10-things-Tuesday #12

I just accidentally deleted the post I just wrote. Ugh! I really hate myself right now, but I’m not giving up so I’m rewriting it!
Here goes.

I know we’re supposed to shower for only 10 minutes. But are there actually people out there that can shower for only 10 minutes? I mean, my solo singing concert takes at least 15 minutes and then I haven’t even started washing my hair yet. So, here are 10 things I do to make my showers fun.

  1. Singing, obviously. This is a no brainer. Everybody knows that showers have the best acoustics.
    200 (3)
  2. Dance parties. Splashing the water and making up new dance moves is my favorite thing to do.
  3. Use all the soap! I used to mix all the shampoos and body lotions together. It felt like I was making these amazing witch potions. I don’t really do that anymore. Maybe I should…
  4. Try using these awesome witch potions to blow bubbles.
  5. Reliving arguments I had with people many days ago. I always think of these amazing comebacks hours after I had the actual argument, so I just redo the argument in the shower.
  6. Thinking I’m a water-bender and I can manipulate the water with my hands. Maybe that’s just me. I admit, I can be a bit of a geek sometimes.
  7. Pretending the drops of water on the wall are having a race. Whichever droplet reaches the floor first, wins! You can also narrate the race if you want.
  8. Trying to get as much water into your mouth as humanly possible and then creating a fountain by spitting it all out again.
  9. Thinking about the infinite universe we live in.
  10. Actually washing my hair and body.

Have fun with that.

Have a nice Tuesday.

MoodyMonday #20

Mood: Wired wrong

Why, chair? Just, why? What did those wires ever do to you, huh? It wasn’t their fault.
God, I hate it when this happens. My chair is always kind to my butt, but if there’s anything on the floor that isn’t supposed to be there… My chair will attack.
Well, I guess I’ll be buying some new cables for my IPod. That’s how Apple gets to you. They give these cables that get ruined by your chair so you have to keep buying new ones. I’m on to you, Apple!

Have a nice Monday.
