Music is one of the things in this world that can change one’s mood, weather it be to a better or a worst one of that. I use music to help relax me. Sometimes my life can get really crazy, but by continuing to listen to music it makes it easier for me to get through tough periods in my life. Some people need a therapist, but I think of music as my therapist. Listening to music, helps me understand things better. Sometimes in songs, the artist describes a time in your life that you have gone or are continuing to go through. And by listening to that song, it can help you understand how to move on easier and better and let you know that you are not alone. Music always finds a way to be relatable. Listening to something that is relatable to yourself, it really can make you feel better about yourself. I listen to music all day long, and without it I would living a boring life. Music really does help me get through the day, and my toughest battles.
OCD, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Some people think that OCD is just something you automatically have when you want things neat and organized, but that is false. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is defined as, “Excessive thoughts (obsessions) that lead to repetitive behaviors (compulsions).”. When you have OCD, you can not always help how you think. Your mind tells you that you have to do certain things in certain ways, or else something bad will happen. If you have OCD, it is more than just always being organized. OCD makes people feel anxious, worried, aggravated, and can cause frequent panic attacks. Living with OCD is more difficult than many would think. Sometimes people will call you crazy because they really don’t understand. OCD changes lives, and not always in a good scenario. OCD can affect you in the smallest and craziest ways, if you have a bad memory that happened while you were drinking a certain drink, sometimes your OCD will cause you to want to never drink that drink again because it brings along those bad memories. For me, every night before I go to bed I need to do the same thing in the same order every time or else it will cause me to have a panic attack and feel like something bad is going to happen. Also, when I got into a car accident a few years ago, I remember the song that was playing. I never wanted to listen to that song again, because I felt like if I did, I would get into another car accident. I know it sounds strange, but it’s true. Living with OCD is difficult, but every day is a new obstacle that I am willing to overcome.
Ever since I was a kid I have always been interested in architecture. Recently I watched a Netflix original series titled, The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes. This show currently has one season out on Netflix, which consists of four episodes. Each episode is surrounded upon a lifestyle in a different location and presents to viewers the most extraordinary homes. The first episode’s title is, mountain. In this episode you can expect to see the most glorious homes built with the view of a wonderful mountain, or even at the top of one! Some of the next episodes are: forest, coast, and underground. Within each episode, you are able to definitely infer that every inch of space was utilized, and for the most part, they all built around the nature and made sure to make that their main focus point. After watching all four episodes, I for sure agree that these are all extraordinary homes. As a lover or architecture, I was intrigued every second of every episode. If you would like to find out more, be sure to take a peek at the show!
So, if you have read my previous blog posts, you may remember that my first blog was about the television show, “Big Brother”. At the end of the most recent season, the TV Show Host, Julie Chen, announced that for the first time they were going to premiere a new series called, “Celebrity Big Brother”. I watched the first episode (which premiered February 7th) and I was well-humored by the celebrities that appeared on the show. Usually, the show (Big Brother) lasts for about three months. Therefore, the houseguests that wins will usually be locked in the house for three months, but this season, they will only be locked in the house for 18 days. This season consists of 12 celebrities (who are in a sense, washed up). Some celebrities who are in the house include; Omarosa, famous for her role in, The Celebrity Apprentice, James Maslow, Big Time Rush, Chuck Liddell, UFC Fighter, and Metta World Peace, Basketball Coach and Former Player. If you would like to know any more about the show, be sure to refer to my first blog post titled, “Big Brother”.
So, I recently started a new show on Netflix called, One Day At A Time. This is a television show that presents the life of a Cuban-American family, where the main character is a woman who is now new at being a single Army veteran while trying to raise her two teen-children in the same house as her mother. This show, shows the world the real-world struggles of being a single-mother, while also trying to balance the chaos and craziness of her life. Right from the start of the first episode, the show gets you hooked in a way that you want to spend a whole night, just lying on your couch in your living room while eating pints and pints of ice cream. Each second spent watching this show, is a second spend laughing. Season two was just recently premiered (January 26th). If you are looking for a new show to get hooked on, try this one out. If you do get a chance to watch this show, be sure to leave me a comment in my comments tab, to share your opinions.
Happy New Year! So, it is officially 2018 and everything that was in 2017, is in the past. I love when it is a New Year because, it gives people a chance to start the new year with a clean state of mind. All the bad that has happened in 2017, we should leave in 2017 and learn from it and move on as we begin a new year. In order to start the new year with good vibes, we as people, should all be open to change. Change is good because it gets people a little bit more prepared for whatever is coming their way. Change may not be able to fully prepare someone for whatever is coming their way, but it will for sure help them when it happens. In life we experience many things, and we may ask ourselves, “why is this happening to me?”. But we are made to dealt with things that come up in our life, and even though we may think of them as “bad” now, we will later learn that they are there to teach us and that that happened this we we are able learn from our mistakes. When I start a new year, I always make resolutions. But instead of thinking of them as resolutions, I like to think of them as goals, because if we set our mind to something, we will achieve it. This year my goals (resolutions) are, to get better grades this way I can hopefully get into more honors classes for my junior year and to be able to help people with anything that I can. Do you have any resolutions for this year, if so be sure to let me know what it is in my comments tab of my blog.
Now, I, sure we have heard of the show, Full House. This show came out with new episodes every week from about 1987-1995. As a person in the television industry, one would easily be able to identify that this was a great show because it consisted of eight seasons, and each season consisted of many episodes. This show was about a big family that lived together in a house and they would help each other out and not only would it be only about what goes in, in the house, but it would show part of the lives of the friends of the daughters (in the television show) and also about the problems they would have during school. The creation of this television show, gave the producers a great opportunity to teach kids about things that they will go through during their life, including many experiences they went through, and experiences kids watching might have gone through, or will go through. Decades after the show ended, they went on to make a sequel (Fuller House) which would showed the audience the life of the three daughters and their neighbor, who would live in the same house they grew up in. They were very brilliant to call this show, Full House, because the house they lived in consisted of many people and it really was a Full House.
Now, if you’re reading this, I know what you must be thinking, “Is this really going to be another blog about another TV show?”. Now, if you did ask that question to yourself, then you already know that the answer is yes, but I promise this is an awesome TV show! So, Halloween is coming up this Tuesday and I know, that the best costume is the most comfortable costume. So, I’m going to be a surgeon (this way I can wear scrubs of course). So, when choosing my costume, I thought why not really get into character and learn some medical terminology, so I started watching Grey’s Anatomy, and listen you know this is a good show when it has 14 seasons already, and counting! So far, I am only on season 2, episode 1, but I can already tell that it gets better. It starts by introducing the main character, Meredith Grey, who recently finished medical school and is now an intern at the hospital where her mother became a legend. Her mother no longer works there (because of medical reasons) but Meredith does a great job at making a name for herself, and along the way she meets many other interns, and she ends up letting two of them be her roommates (in the gigantic house, that she grew up in with her mother). Now, I’m not going to spoil the wholeee first season for you, but if your interested in watching the surgery’s they do, while also watching all the person drama they have go down, you can start watching it from season 1 on Netflix. If you do end up watching, be sure to leave me a comment in my contact page. Hope you enjoy!
Recently, I started watching a television show on Netflix called, “The Good Place”. I enjoyed this show so much that I finished the first and only season at the moment (which consists of 13 episodes) in about two days. This show is about a girl named Eleanor Shellstop (played by Kristen Bell) who finds herself dead, and in an afterlife called, “The Good Place”, but the only thing is that she is not suppose to be there. The Good Place is essentially for those who did good deeds all their life and have been rewarded by going to The Good Place (essentially like an eternal heaven). She makes some friends along the way and they try their best to help her to make the decision, whether to stay or not, because the city architect, who made this afterlife, has no idea that she is not suppose to be there. A lot happens throughout these 13 episodes, and it turns out to not be what you expected in the beginning. You can watch this on NBC, or if you're anything like me, just wait till it’s all out on Netflix. I hope you end up watching this show, and enjoy. If you do get a chance to at least watch an episode or two, be sure to leave me comment in my, “Connection” tab. Hope you enjoy!
If you have read my previous blog posts, I am sure you can already infer that I am one that is very interested in television. A little bit over a year ago I started watching The Office on netflix, and a few months later I finished the show (which includes nine seasons). Basically this show is a reality show, but instead of it being about the actor’s lives, the actors play as various characters and act as if it is their life. The show is about people in an office who work for a paper company (Dunder Mifflin), and in this day in age people are using less and less. It aso shows the lives of the accountants for the branch, salesman, and the branch manager, Michael Scott (Played by Actor, Steve Carell). As you watch the show, you become more and more attached to the people in it and as people leave the show through the many seasons, you become more and more emotional. At first the show may seem as boring but as you watch on, the show really goes into the characters lives and includes both drama and comedy.
