Coffee Mornings 1

I know it’s not a coffee but it’s my choice of beverage for today, so lets role with it.

I’m very tired today, I won’t lie – I was up late rereading ‘Perks of Being A Wallflower’ and realised I should probably sleep when it hit 2am.

It’s an interesting book and I like how it’s written in epistolary style.

I’m feeling an early night tonight.

See you tomorrow morning.

Mellow Monday! BTS – Intro:Serendipity

So, I held off putting this into a Mellow Monday until the album officially came out. The whole video for me, on a lyrical and visual level, is incredibly satisfying.

The entire video for me, on a lyrical and visual level, is extremely satisfying. Jimin’s smooth vocals, coupled with the aesthetically pleasing video, makes for a full-on ear-gasm. It’s not a complicated song. It’s not filled with heavy bass drops or teeming with overused samples. It’s just a beautiful song.

BTS for me has always been a favourite – Every album has songs I can vibe to. Songs I can relate to. And even that one song you can play 100 times, and still love it enough to play 100 more.

I’m going to contemplate doing an album review. Simply because the album, is fantastic. But I won’t promise this outright as I know myself – I have photos and a half written post about a skincare routine, that I promised to do back in February. So if we get this post count yourselves incredibly lucky. 

I’m going to end this post now because I must sleep. I have work in the morning and want to be at least 80% functional for my shift.

Break

This is just a small update to say I probably won’t be posting very long posts this week – As I write this, I’m sat on a king-size bed in a hotel, an hour and a half from my bed at home. I’m involved in a work based event and offered my services. This, in turn, has meant that the majority of my time is spent working, and the minority is spent missing my creature comforts in my room. Leaving no space for inspiration and motivation to blog.

This whole thing has its pros and cons:

  • Pro – the breakfast offered is great, the choice of continental and full English breakfast
  • Pro – free wi-fi.
  • Con – my room has a shower when I too wanted a bath.
  • Con – although big beds are nice and spacious, it’s too empty and too cold when I move around.
  • Pro – I have a bedside table with snacks and nibbles on the go.
  • Con – the 8 kg I lost won’t stay lost with all these damn snacks

However, I will be doing 5 minute coffee morning posts, just to fill the space. Short. Sweet. Simple.

I know I’m late on upload for this weeks Mellow Monday, but I will post it within the next 10 minutes or so – BTS just released a new album and boy let me tell you, it ain’t no joke. But enough spoilers.

See you in roughly 10 minutes

Somewhat Achievable Things

Has anyone ever had that nostalgic feeling when cleaning your room, so the motivation for cleanliness is lost and suddenly you have piles of books and notepads spread around you? A blanket of paper filled with things you jotted down or aimless doodles from lessons you can’t even remember clearly?

Well the other day I finally got round to sitting at my desk – I know you probably wondering what the hell I’m on about, but in short I decided to buy this desk, that I havent used since building it. But I pulled down the flap and was greeted with all my old notebooks just crammed in there. I’m sure I had a reason for throwing them in there when i built the desk, however I can’t remember why.

Mellow Monday! Wake Up Alone – Amy Winehouse

This is one of my favourite Amy Winehouse songs. It’s very vocal on the isolation and loneliness after a heartbreak.

There isn’t really much to say after the point, so just enjoy.

Update guys, by the time this post is up, I would have quit smoking – let’s hope this isn’t another bullshit thing i say and go back on.

Blog soon.
