The King of Lions

Do you like what I did there?

Now I wont be giving too much away, because I don’t want to spoil anything and I really did enjoy the movie. So there isn’t really too much to complain about. When I got back from the movie, I saw some article about there was lash back against “Hakuna Matata”? But I literally don’t know what the problem was.

I think the first thing for people to recognise with any of these live action films. They are not cartoons. There are only so much expression that one can give on a live action film, especially with animals. i think once you can recognise that, you’ll be fine. Other than that…

I absolutely loved it! Cartoon less and everything.

There was genuinely one part I did not enjoy and that was because I felt that they had messed up a really pivotal song, and that should have stayed exactly as it is. I was trying to get to into the different version of it, but I couldn’t. You know how some songs make the scene?

Other than that I genuinely loved it all. I know there’s been a few complaints about the non-expressions, but I didn’t have a problem with them. For some reason I always cry at the beginning, in all the cartoon, live action and (lucky me) the musical as well. Do any of you? I don’t understand it.

I totally understand why they chose Chiwetel Ejiofor to play Scar, but I really did want Jeremy Irons to play Scar. But Chiwetel does always play a fantastic bad guy. I really wanted James and Jeremy together again.

Christmas’s in July

Do any of you celebrate Christmas in July? It’s becoming a big thing over here. I think because it actually is Winter and cold in Australia during July. So it’s a bit more appealing, than the usual hot summers we have in Australia.

Magically Monday #2

Welcome to my second “episode” of Magical Monday, where I am going to write nothing but something positive. Mondays have a very bad reputation and I get it, I mean most people’s working week starts on the Monday. From there it seems like a very long road. So lets try to make it fun.

For this Magic Monday, I wanted to talk about probably my most favourite musician in the whole wide world. Even if they are no longer apart of this world anymore. I almost have a whimsical love for this artist. Different time, different place, it totally would have happened,lol. He was kind of a whimsical person. I think it’s also one of the reasons that I liked my ex, a couple of years after we had broken up and I saw a photo of him. It freaked me out a lot, because my ex looked exactly like this artist. I do miss this artists beautiful spirit in the world.

Shall I stop speaking now?

I know that John probably talked the most about Peace, and I don’t think there isn’t a single soul that doesn’t love “Imagine” But too myself, George was the one who practised it the best. He wasn’t like John in that, George was a lot more gentle than John was. George was my kind of “peaceful” person. I just really think he was a sweet soul. Very dreamy, very laid back. Although apparently very serious when need be. He was just a dream.

Below is posted my favourite song of his, I don’t care it was “The Beatles” He wrote it. I always play it on the first day that I really feel like Spring is back. But also when I need cheering up, almost like a metaphorical sun.

The Genetics of White “Socks” in Our Pets — FACE Foundation

White paws, often called socks, are an endearing color marking in our pets. Socks are often seen in cats, but can also be found in dogs and other animals like horses and guinea pigs. Where do socks come from? According to a recent article in Popular Science, which outlines some new scientific research on the […]

Run away with me…

I have decided to spend a few days off of social media. Sometimes it’s just something you gotta do, and there is nothing wrong with that. Something I really love to do when I take “time off” from social media. I love to read! I love to escape…again,lol

What do you love to love when you love to escape? Are there books you love to read and read again, binge out on movies or tv shows?

There are two games that I just love to play: The Sims 4 and Guild Wars 2. I can get lost in these two gems for literally hours without even meaning too. When I first had my anxiety issues, it was the only thing that could distract my brain for hours. Because it was usually fast pace moving and I was actually interested. I would play for hours.

The other escape I have is of course music and books. I know that on Goodreads a lot of my reviews are pretty highly reviewed. I have no problem with that though. I only read these days what I want to read, rather than what I can review and make myself seem “popular”. I have to admit there are some people on Goodreads who I think purposely give books only bad reviews to make themselves seems “serious”. But it also seems to work, I’ve noticed that negative reviews get a lot more likes?

Probably my final form of escape is Comedy. Sometimes when you can get on a comedy binge, it’s just the best thing ever. It also feels like a workout. At the moment, I highly recommend Wanda Sykes “What’s going on right now, is not normal” I think you can only find it on Netflix? But watch it!

Slight Blog Post Freak outs

I don’t know about anyone else, but I can usually have between 5-10 post all scheduled and ready to go. When that number starts to drop, I start to worry a little and then put pressure on myself to write a good post, ready to go. I felt like this all week last week, I was struggling to find inspiration. Over the weekend though, I managed to get the count back up again.

Do any of you get this feeling too? You just hit a blogging wall and that’s it. You can’t get it back there for a bit!

Magic Monday 1#

I am taking inspiration from the lovely “Chocolate and Waffles” and her inspirational “Positivity Wave” on Friday” posts. I’m going to change it up a bit though, I want to start doing it on Mondays.

I haven’t decided yet, if I’m going to do it every Monday or possibly every second Monday…We will see.

I wanted to start off this first ever particular “Magic Monday” by saying thank you to you…Yes, you…and you too.

I feel like I need to say thank you to the people who read my blog and make this experience such a positive one. Blogging has become one of my most favourite things to do. I love logging in and seeing not only all the posts that I have yet to share, but to read through your posts as well. Too read and to know that there are on the same thinking level as myself.

It can feel lonely out there, but I see the political, the gender equality and the silly ones and I feel like I’ve found my sort of people. I love the fun posts, the grateful ones. Even how we may not always agree with something, or the wording or something. But we know that we can talk to each other about it. We know that, within this community, that we can talk to each other, safely.
