If I Can’t Have You

220px-shawn_mendes_-_if_i_can27t_have_youEVERYTHING MEANS NOTHING IF I CAN’T HAVE YOU!

I love this song! Its a cute little ode to a love that’s lost, but in the early stage of being lost. This song is basically about being on a break or a new break up and then realizing that you truly love and want to be with that person but it also feels like understanding that its okay to love someone and know that its time to move on. I just also think that this is a great song and well written. While Shawn Mendes did record this song, we all know that Teddy Gieger (his trusty ghost writer) penned this song, and she wrote it around a time when she broke up with her Fiance.

Overall, the lyrics are simple and repetitive but this is a quality top 40 pop song. Happy Listening!

Book Review: Dirty Rush

21412138._uy475_ss475_Hello Everyone! Sorry that it has been so long since my last book review. I was in a bit of a reading drought and I really couldn’t focus on any new books. I also realized that I no longer like reading ebooks, so I now have to venture to the book store (or Amazon Prime) to find new and good hard-copy reads! I finished this book last month and I never really go around to writing this review because I was busy, but here we are and here we go! Hopefully, this book is something that you will enjoy and pick up to read!

Dirty Rush is a book about and authored by the same person, Taylor Bell. Taylor is academically superior and she gains a full ride scholarship to the same school that her mom and her sister have attended. Both her mom and her sister were in the same sorority during their undergrad and they expect Taylor to join as well. Taylor is ultimately against joining and intends to spend all of her social time with her gay best friend (I have forgotten his name y’all), however, the sorority girls have other plans for her and they use various tactics to convince her to join. She is also in love with this super attractive and athletic guy (also don’t remember his name) and she eventually gets to date him as this book goes on.

After all of her resistance at the beginning of the book, she eventually realizes that she likes these girls, joins the sorority, and finds her forever friends. Yes, there is a bit of drug selling induced drama but overall, it was a good little read that I enjoyed while riding the subway. My favourite part of the book is when her boyfriend at the time breaks up with her during her weakest moment and the moment of her greatest embarrassment. A fake sex tape of Taylor was leaked and because her boyfriends sorority brothers didn’t approve of the video, he had to break up with her to save his reputation. This action comes full ridicule when he comes back to  reconcile with her, looking dishevelled and acting like a total drunk mess. Sometimes, life is really about how you treat people and Karma is always a big bitch.

Overall, I would give this book 3/5 stars. It was a fun book and it was written pretty well, but the drama came in too late, it lasted too briefly, and while we saw great character growth, the growth of her supporting friends could have been elaborated on to add more strength to the text. Anyways, if you’re looking for a quick and fun read, then this is it for you!!!!

 

Hot Girl Summer…NOT

This is not my hot girl summer, I can tell you that for sure.

I have always had an issue with my weight but this is the first year in my life where I can honestly say that I actually feel FAT.

I feel like a Santa Clause running across the roof and getting stuck in the chimney on the way down to deliver your toys.

I got a gym membership but I can just never find the time or the energy to go.

I started to eat healthy and cook all my meals. I even started intermittent fasting, but that hasn’t even helped to budge this weight.

I am 24 and I kind of feel like I want to hide. I don’t know what to do to make this weight move or how to find the time to build a regular schedule that will allow me to prioritize myself and my health.

If I can remember, I will blog about it here for you all to see.

End of rant!

It Has Been A While…

Hi There Everyone,

I know it has been a while since I updated this blog but honestly, I haven’t really had anything compelling to write and also, I kind of forgot about this blog.

Things have been really good in my life and my mental health has never been better! I am going to start a new full-time job on Monday and I am super excited about that, but I am also afraid of having structure in my life in that way. I love having a flexible work schedule.

Anyways, hopefully this summer, I will find interesting things to blog about but as of right now, I don’t have anything to write.

Maybe I will go back to writing about my favourite songs? Who knows right now. Take Care Y’all!

One Week of Eating Clean(ish)

For the past week, I have committed myself to eating clean foods only. I have only bought food twice and I have made nutrient rich lunches and dinners to bring with me to work. I have noticed a few things as I start this lifestyle change journey:

  • I have more energy and I am able to work longer days
  • My focus has been better during the day time hours
  • I am calmer – I don’t feel as angry and bitter
  • I don’t have any desire to buy food unless I really don’t have any more food
  • I actually enjoy meal prepping
  • I still need to establish a cut of time for eating

Things are definitely improving diet wise and I think I can commit to eating better and preparing my own meals. Yes, it can be tough and time consuming at times but it is totally worth it. I will follow up with you all and let you know how things are going.

40 Pounds in 2019???

Hi Y’all!

I apologize for being super absent on the blog lately but I just haven’t really felt like writing anything. I have composed a set of goals for 2019 which I plan on sharing with all of you very soon, however, I just haven’t been in the mood to go through all of my aspirations for this year. So far, 2019 has been pretty great. It was my birthday on January 24 (24 on the 24th!!!) and I had a great time at a cool bar with a few of my close friends. I have also been incorporating low impact cardio into my daily regime for the past 2 weeks and I have never been more proud of myself for the level of discipline I am showing.

My number one goal in 2019 is to lose 40 pounds. I have seen so many people do it and I think that I can too. I am tired of gaining weight and seeing cute outfits that I would love to fit into, but I just cannot. I have been making little changes to my diet and athletics lately and I hope that these efforts will become a lifestyle change for me overall. My goal is to be in better health long term and to also feel like a cute girl in her 20’s again. After the terrible 2018 I had (and y’all would know if you really followed my blog), I think its time for me to feel like me again and for me to feel happy and amazing again. 2019 is the perfect year to boss up (as Rick Ross tweets daily). I hope that I will be able to update you on my great progress one day soon!

Bye for now my lovelies. getty_1004613044_376718
