New segment

So I'm the midst of procrastinating revision, I have decided on a new segment for this blog. It's called Quite of The Day!

I know it's not creative as hell but such is life. I find some really interesting quotes about identity in the most random of places throughout the day and I jot them on my memo pad. But since posting about my Saturday blues, I decided that they were worthy enough of sharing with you all.

These will be posted every Wednesday starting this Wednesday coming. I know I've tried committing to ideas before and look where it gets us – I feel like a serial liar to you all every time I post and give myself a schedule. My brain has this subconscious trait, that when I commit to doing something, I automatically find reasons not to stick with it.

We shall see how this goes haha!

I guess if I don't post before Wednesday that I'll see you then. I'll also let you know how my test goes tomorrow!

Saturday Blues

I’m not sure why but today just seems to be dragging on – I’ve spent literally hours studying about the financial service and I can easily say my brain has died.

I’m only revising as I have an exam Monday and I kind of don’t want to fail. I mean hopefully I will pass and  can sleep easy knowing it wasn’t for nothing, but my brain could literally just go through a fart phase and not work. High possibilities on both.

So I recently found out that I’m vitamin D deficit. It really isn’t a surprise, I mean I avoid the sun like it’s the plague.

This post is super short today. Just wanted to share the feature picture with you. I took it a few weeks ago and it just makes me happy looking at it. No one judge me its been a very, very long day.

I’ll write soon hopefully.

Mellow Monday! Dig – Incubus

So for the first time in a long time, I am on time to post this Mellow Monday! Today’s song choice is one of my favourite songs since it was released. I’m not sure why but I feel some sort of emotional connection with Incubus as a band; their songs have got me through a lot of shit in the past and their lyrics are just so captivating.

I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you that Brandon’s voice soothed me through my break up with my boyfriend, through the end of friendships and the like. Plus the man is attractive as hell and that’s always a plus point for admiring the unattainable.

There is something just melodic and lulling about the choice of chords in Dig. I’m not sure why but I really love it!

I could have chosen to share Drive with you, their more popular song – which as a mile stone is one of the only songs I learnt, well attempted to learn, to play on guitar. But just known whichever I posted I could tell you I have on many occasions, attempted to sing along too – I’m not a bad singer but I sure as hell ain’t great!

So I’m hoping every single person who stumbles across this blog is having a great Monday and enjoys listening to Incubus and their music as much as I do; whether its your first time or just a gentle reminder that you love them.

I know I mentioned last time getting ready to schedule blog posts, but this time I am ready to do so – I’m feeling especially motivated after finishing a book and wanted to do nothing but talk about it to anyone and everyone who will listen to me ramble on.

Potentially post tomorrow, I’m hitting up a quiz night at my other work place and I won’t turn down a cheeky glass of red!

Mellow Monday! (But on a Thursday) 1979 – Smashing Pumpkins

My posting on here has been erratic to say the least. I’m looking to blog over the weekend and prepare plenty of posts for scheduling – an 8 hour hairdressers appointment will surely buy me enough time to get this sorted out, haha.

But in the time between now and then, enjoy my ‘late’ Mellow Monday of 1979 by the Smashing Pumpkins. It’s a great song and I think I’ve had it on repeat so much over the past few days.

Post soon!
