Avid Apple Product Supporter


Yesterday I finally got my new iPhone!! I went for the big one, the 6 plus. It's such a difference, and I'm loving it so much more already. My iPhone 4s wore out it's welcome long ago when the battery life would easily go from 40% to 1% in less than 5 minutes anytime I went on Instagram or Snapchat. Horrible!! 

I'm so beyond happy! I've wanted the new iPhone pretty much since the day they announced it last year. Perfect timing too since last night's episode of Modern Family aired entirely shot using Apple products mainly the iPhone 6.


I usually download the episodes, but last night I watched live and I wanted to share my thoughts on the episode. 

Modern Family is still one of my favourite shows, and last night lived up to the hype for me personally. I thought it was so creative and well done. The whole episode was told from the perspective of Claire's laptop. Her and Haley got into a fight, and she's trying to get ahold of her, and ends up getting the whole family involved when she thinks Haley is married and pregnant with Andy. 
Of course it was all a big misunderstanding as I thought it would be. But as you may know, I made a blog post mentioning it, I'm a huge Haley and Andy supporter. So one the one hand, I'm glad they aren't married and pregnant! I would like to see that wedding thank you very much! But on the other hand, I hope they move their story along soon. 
I'm hoping the finale has him leaving Beth, and them getting together. Leading to Season 7 of them being a couple! That's my wish/prediction on the Haley and Andy front.
But yeah, overall great episode! I loved it!!

In other news, I lost my reading mojo. I just can't get into any of the books I have left from my Christmas presents. I want to read Neil Patrick Harris' book, so I hope that sparks my reading love again.

Sorry for the lack of posts. Lack of motivation, and pure laziness is to blame as usual.

I'm hoping March is a better blog month ;) Hope everyone is having a good day, and enjoying life!!

Thanks for reading!!

Abandoned Read: How to Love


Started: Feb 10, 2015 | ABANDONED 

Synopsis: 
Before:
Reena Montero has loved Sawyer LeGrande for as long as she can remember: as natural as breathing, as endless as time. But he's never seemed to notice that Reena even exists...until one day, impossibly, he does. Reena and Sawyer fall in messy, complicated love. But then Sawyer disappears from their humid Florida town without a word, leaving a devastated, and pregnant, Reena behind.
After:
Almost three years have passed, and there's new love in Reena's life: her daughter, Hannah. Reena's gotten used to life without Sawyer, and she's finally getting the hang of this strange, unexpected life. But just as swiftly and suddenly as he disappeared, Sawyer turns up again. Reena doesn't want anything to do with him, though she'd be lying if she said Sawyer's being back wasn't stirring something in her. After everything that's happened, can Reena really let herself love Sawyer LeGrande again?
My thoughts:

Does it really count as a book review if I didn't even finish the book?

I read the first 100 pages to this book, and I just can't finish it. A part of me is interested to see where it goes, but a bigger part of me doesn't care. I couldn't get invested in these characters. The main character was awkward and whiny, and not in some adorable redeemable way.

This book read like bad fanfiction! I'm sorry to say that, but there it is. First book that I've ever abandoned while reading, and I've read the 50 shades series. I make this book sound terrible and it's not that bad. Maybe in the future I'll give it another chance. We'll have to wait and see, but for now, this book isn't for me.

I won't add this to my book review list since I'm not sure if this qualifies.

Sometimes I'm Not Fine


It's currently just after 2am, and I can't sleep again because all these thoughts in my head just won't shut up and so I thought maybe writing it will help.

Lately I've been putting on a brave face, and acting like I'm fine. I'm not! Biggest downside to being unemployed is this. What originally started as taking time to myself became me losing all motivation to do anything, me feeling depressed and tired all the time but I can't sleep. I literally can't tell you the last time I left my house! Last time I was unemployed it was for a whole year, and this is what happened; I became insomniac, I didn't eat properly so I lost alot of weight, and I was really down most of the time. Then I just ended up going back to the job I hate because it was the only job hiring at the time. I promised myself that wasn't going to happen again, but here I am falling into bad, familiar habits...again.

It's times like this where I really hate my life. I'll be turning 27 this year and I don't feel like I've lived. Experiences you think you'd have had by now, I haven't had because I allowed my anxiety and insecurities hold me back. I have zero confidence in myself which is just horrible. But it's like, no-one teaches you how to live. I can't grasp it. I don't know how to make friends. I don't know how to find a boyfriend. I don't know what to say or what to do. I don't know!

The worst thing about having social anxiety is that you literally don't know what to say in social situations, so you don't say anything at all and you can come across as rude when really it's the exact opposite. And when you do say something, you dwell on it so much and will think it's so stupid and no-one likes you or gets you, and you won't be able to stop thinking about how much you regret saying anything at all. I literally still think about things that happened while I was in Elementary school and I'll get so upset with myself. Like why! Why do I care?! I don't know how to not care! I don't know how to overcome. Everyone around me makes it look so easy..

You only get one life, and so far I feel like I'm failing at it. I keep waiting for it to get better, knowing I have to make it better. But I'm so depressed that I have no motivation to try. I just, I feel like such a dud. Like this incomplete person who can't get it right..
