Since it’s Wednesday, you guys deserve a Writing Wednesday post. I really enjoy sharing snippets of my stories with you, and I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I do writing them. If not, that’s okay. You don’t have to read these if you don’t want. I’m just glad to be back and finally posting again after a crazy couple of months.
This comes from Betrayed, and it’s one of the last chapters that I posted. I should have picked something more light-hearted, but I think it’s a necessary fit for what I’ve been through.
Jason’s depression is getting the better of him in this excerpt. In fact, he’s contemplating suicide. Trigger warning for anyone sensitive to those subjects. It’s a really short excerpt, and again, I apologize. I don’t want to overdo it, you know. Love you guys loads!
Until next week,
I realize it’s been ages since I’ve done one of these. I had to take some time off for myself, but I am finally back at it! I’m sorry for being gone for so long. I hope next time I take a break, it’s not for months. Anyways, here’s today’s song of the day.
There’s a reason why Secret Garden’s “Nocturne” won Eurovision back in 1995. It’s just stunning! The Irish-Norwegian duo impressed with this serene, predominately instrumental number. Whenever I listen to this song, I feel like I should be dancing in an enchanted forest or something magical is about to happen. It just has that Celtic vibe to it and it makes me swoon.

Wow. It’s been over a month since my last post. It’s not that I wanted to neglect blogging; I just couldn’t do it. Since it’s Sunday, a song of the day and book tag is expected as always but I’m not here to write either posts. I’ll try to return to my usual, but I can’t promise anything.
What I am here to write about is something highly personal. I’ve touched on mental health before, but I’ve never really spoken about my experience. Ironically, it’s World Suicide Prevention Day. Exactly two months ago, I attempted suicide.
*TRIGGER WARNING* This post contains talks of depression, self-harm, and suicide.
Happy Tuesday everybody! Hope you’re all having a nice start to your day or whatever time it is where you are. It’s a beautiful day and I think I’m gonna get some writing done. Here’s today’s song of the day.
I chose “Незавършен Роман” by Bulgarian singer Victoria Georgieva because it’s such an amazing ballad. (I added an extra “n” in the title…ugh!) The first time I heard this song, I was captivated by everything—her voice, the melody, the lyrics. Everything about the song just moved me because I felt Victoria’s heart. The girl sings with soul and conviction. I had goosebumps the first time i listened to this song because it’s just that beautiful.
Naturally I don’t have a clue what she’s singing about, and I’m frankly too lazy right now to look it up, but that’s not necessary. The song translates to “Unfinished novel,” which insinuates there’s a touching narrative in the lyrics. Again, I feel it. She a very sweet, mellifluous voice that can smoothly recount a story, and that’s the vibe I get from this song.
Look this one up on Youtube and check it out. It’s stunning song. I guarantee you’ll be moved.
Happy Monday everybody! How insane is it that July is nearly over? This is the last full week and then it’ll be August?!?!! Where did the time go?
Hope you’re all having a splendid morning/afternoon/night wherever you are. The sun’s out and there’s no more rain. It’s gonna be a good day (I think). Here’s today’s song of the day.
Cage the Elephant won a GRAMMY for this album, Tell Me I’m Pretty, beating the likes of Blink 182, Panic! At The Disco, and Weezer. Me being a fan of all four bands, my hopeful winner was up in the air. I didn’t really care, but I was secretly pulling for Panic! just because they’ve been my favorite band since basically the start of their career.
“Mess Around” is my personal favorite from this album. It’s such a catchy, groovy tune about a girl who’s kinda promiscuous. It’s one of those songs that, from the first second, you’ll want to dance around and belt to because it has such an infectious vibe. Y’all should give it a listen for yourselves!
This is the first book tag I’m doing in what seems like ages! I missed doing these, and I’m so glad to be back and feeling better enough to post again.
I’m feeling very nostalgic today. Who wouldn’t when there’s news of Hey Arnold! coming back and the That’s So Raven reboot has kicked off? I love that my childhood is slowly, but surely making a reappearance. Now I feel the need to dig out some VHS tapes (those 2000’s kids don’t know what they’re missing out on) and watch some Swan Princess or Little Giants.
I give to you the 90’s Movie Book Tag, which I took from erikabooksandstars. I’ve seen 8/10 of these movies in my life. Growing up mostly in the 00’s, I probably wasn’t old enough to watch majority of them, but I definitely dug into them during my teen years.
Hope you guys enjoy my responses, and see you Wednesday for another Writing Wednesday post!
Happy Sunday, everybody! Hope it’s not as gloomy where you are as it is for me. I love rain and I love petrichor, but the darker sky during daylight hours is making me so sleepy, I can barely function. See you later for today’s book tag. Here’s the song of the day.
I totally forgot how much I love The Strokes until “Two Kinds of Happiness” came on shuffle yesterday. I never really listened to this particular album, but when this song popped up, I had a feeling it shouldn’t be skipped. I was right.
“Two Kinds of Happiness” has such a great rhythm and the song, itself is very The Strokes-esque. If you’ve ever listened to their first albums, which I’m sure a lot of people have in the 2000’s if they listened to alternative/indie music, then you know that The Strokes has such a distinct vibe and Julian Casablancas’ voice is unlike any other frontman’s.
I really like this song and I’m currently listening to it again as I type this. Hopefully you’ll give it a listen if you’re not familiar with The Stroke’s music.The first two lines of the song are really telling and something we should all keep in mind when we try to find our whoever. It’s definitely a great life motto go live by.
Happiness is two diff’rent things
What you take and then what you bring
