Rating: 4.5/5

My Review:

Yes another YouTuber book! I tried to break it up by reading a fictional book, but the one I chose just wasn't grasping my attention. I won't say what it was because I still might read it in the future. But so far I'm loving all the books the YouTubers release this year. I have 5 on pre-order, so many more YouTuber book reviews to come in the future.

I've been watching Tanya's videos for almost 2 years now, and she's always so positive and lovely that I had no doubt her book would have the same vibe, and I was right. It was nice to get a further insight into Tanya's life, a new way of getting to know her better. This book covers Tanya's experience with growing up, her love life with Jim, life experiences in general including her experience with anxiety, Youtube, etc. Along with that she gives tips on Make-Up, Hair, and Fashion.

I really loved and enjoyed Tanya's book. It was nice to hear about her thoughts on everything she's been through thus far. As a viewer of hers, I'm eager to find out what she had planned next. Only nitpick I had with this book, and it's very small, is small grammatical and spelling errors. I have this problem with any book that has them. So overall, great book! If you are a fan/viewer of Tanya, then you will love this one.

Do you watch Tanya's videos? Have you picked up her book? What did you think?

Thanks for reading!!

Filled with a Massive Amount of Regret


I woke up this morning with a huge sense of dread and regret. This has been building up over the last month or so, and I think it finally boiled over today. Remember back in January where I was celebrating my unemployment, yeah that's long over. I've been feeling and feel it heavily now that I made the biggest mistake leaving my job the way I did. At the time, all the stress and panic attacks just got to me, and I thought at the time I was making the best decision ever. Wrong!

My job wasn't the greatest, in fact I hated it at times. But at other times, it was actually great if I'm being honest. The people I worked with were the best people ever, and I miss them so much!! I also knew my job, and not to brag but I did it very well. Plus my hours were amazing! I worked 4 days on, and then had 4 days off, working 6-2 everytime. That is amazing, and I'll never get that again! How could I give that up! I actually feel sick with regret just thinking about it.

At the time, I just needed time away and what I should have done is gone on stress leave or something instead of just up and quitting with no guarantee of getting another job. My "plan" wasn't foolproof, it was stupid! I made a stupidly wrong decision, and I regret it so much right now.

This keeps happening! I make a decision that at the time I think is great, and then a few months down the line, I realize how dumb that was and wish I could go back and tell myself "no, don't do this! there's other ways to go about it!" but you can't change the past, and I'm not sure how to go forward just yet. I screwed myself over, and now I just feel horrible.

Sorry this post is just a whole bunch of moaning and venting. But this is my little space on the internet to be me and say what I want to say, and today I need to vent and let it all out because I've been bottling this up for quite some time now.

A Work in Progress - Book Review


Started: May 19, 2015 | Finished: May 20, 2015

A Work in Progress by Connor Franta
Published by Atria/Keywords Press on April 21, 2015
Genre: Non-fiction, memoir
Pages: 224
Book Edition: Paperback, Audiobook
No. of times read: 1
Links: Goodreads

Synopsis:
In this intimate memoir of life beyond the camera, Connor Franta shares the lessons he has learned on his journey from small-town boy to Internet sensation so far.

Here, Connor offers a look at his Midwestern upbringing as one of four children in the home and one of five in the classroom; his struggles with identity, body image, and sexuality in his teen years; and his decision to finally pursue his creative and artistic passions in his early twenties, setting up his thrilling career as a YouTube personality, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and tastemaker.

Exploring his past with insight and humor, his present with humility, and his future with hope, Connor reveals his private struggles while providing heartfelt words of wisdom for young adults. His words will resonate with anyone coming of age in the digital era, but at the core is a timeless message for people of all ages: don't be afraid to be yourself and to go after what you truly want.

This full-color collection includes photography and childhood clippings provided by Connor and is a must-have for anyone inspired by his journey.
Rating: 4.5/5

My Review:

While I don't watch his videos as regularly as other YouTubers, he's still one of my favs. I've been watching Connor's videos for about a year now. He's extremely likeable and charismatic from the moment you push play to his videos. He started 4 years ago, and to this date has over 4.4 million viewers watching his videos which is incredible.

In Connor's book he shares his upbringing with his parents and 3 siblings. His highschool days, and his experience with college. What life as a YouTuber is like, and how people don't understand that it is considered a job. All that and more, in every chapter, Connor imparts a lesson learned and offers advice and inspiration along with it. I left this book feeling very inspired to stop making excuses and just go, and live life to the way I want.

Like with Neil Patrick Harris' book, I purchased the audiobook along with this book which I find enhances the read, for me anyways. There's something about having the book be read to you by the person who wrote it that you like and admire. It makes it that much more enjoyable in my opinion.

I loved Connor's book very much. He's very inspiring, and I feel like if I'm ever feeling self-doubt and need a reminding to live life the way I want and to stop worrying, I can read or listen to Connor's book. It left me feeling that inspired which is an incredible gift. I can't wait to continue to watch Connor's journey and where he goes next with his career.

Do you watch Connor's videos? Have you read his book?

Thanks for reading!!

First Look at The Scorch Trials Trailer


I can't even begin to tell just how excited I am for this movie! Out of the series, The Scorch Trials was my favourite. Yesterday, they released the first trailer for the movie that will be in theaters September 18! Official countdown starts now!!

Here's the trailer. Let's talk about it!


There's already been changes from what I can see, which kind of annoys me but I can deal with it. Just like there was changes in The Maze Runner, but it was tolerable. I'm hoping the same will go for this one. It makes sense that some things need to change in order for it to make sense and flow better on screen.

The biggest change I noticed was Theresa. She's not meant to be with them throughout all of this. She gets taken away at the start of the book, and isn't in it much. I'm fine with them having more of her in the movie, but I'm hoping they don't change the role she plays in the book, in the movie. If that makes sense.

Overall though, the movie looks amazing! So, I will continue to reserve my judgment until I see it all play out on screen. Sept 18th couldn't get here soon enough!

Are you excited for The Scorch Trials movie?

Thanks for reading!!

TV Talk; Girl Meets World


When I think about Girl Meets World, I think my childhood show grew up and had kids and I love it! Boy Meets World was my favourite childhood show. When I was in 6th grade, I loved Cory and Topanga so much that I wrote a paper on their first kiss and decorated my agenda and locker with pictures of them! So to be able to watch them 15 years later all grown up with their own kids has been amazing. What a time to be alive!

I finally got around to catching up on this show this past weekend. I wanted to rewatch all of Boy Meets World before I did. That took me longer than I was expecting. But considering I rewatched Boy Meet World around the same time I was watching The Office, it makes sense. 9 seasons of The Office with 7 seasons of Boy Meets World is alot of TV to watch.


Riley Matthews; "You're Cory with Topanga's hair" - Shawn Hunter. I can't think of a better way to describe Riley. She really is her father's daughter. I love the relationship she has with her parents, particularly Cory. The staple of the show is her relationship with her best friend, Maya, they have a very Cory/Shawn relationship and it's adorable.


Maya Hart; She's the Shawn of the show where she's the best friend who has abandonment issues with her parents, mainly her dad. I love that she has similar problems like Shawn, but she's also got her own thing going on. She's fierce, loyal and doesn't take crap from anyone. I really love the relationship they are building with her and Shawn. (More on that later)


Lucas and Farkle; I like the addition of these boys and how they are in a group of friends with Riley and Maya. Lucas is the pretty boy from Texas who transferred to their school. He immediately is pegged the love interest for Riley. But I like how they are working on becoming friends first. Farkle is a Stuart Minkus' son which I think is fantastic. He loves both Riley and Maya equally, but he loves being their friend first and foremost. I love that him and Lucas are also best friends.


Auggie; Auggie is Cory and Topanga's second child and he is the most adorable little guy ever!! He's so funny, and I love his relationship with both of his parents. He idolizes his father, but is also a Mama's boy. Adorable!


Cory and Topanga; My childhood OTP! These two were perfect from the start, and they continue to be as they handle married life and being the parental unit on the show. They are just the perfect sitcom couple. I love how they work as parents, but also still make time for each other. Cory is filling the role Feeny had in that he's the kids' teacher and also imparting wisdom but still being very much Cory while he's at it. Topanga is a lawyer, but also took over the local bakery and making it a hangout for the kids. It's great to see them so interwoven in the kids life without making it too much. It's perfect, they're perfect!!


Shawn and Katy; I'm so happy they have Shawn starting to come in more, and I hope they can make it more a regular thing this season. As much as I loved Shawn and Angela on Boy Meets World, I think a part of me always felt like they weren't going to be endgame. They were so back and fourth, and I think they want different things in life. I'm not sure, I'm waiting to see what happens when Angela makes an appearance on the show. So far I'm actually liking the direction of Shawn and Maya's mom, Katy. I like that she was perceived wrong at first, and that Shawn made sure Maya knew that her mom is the good one, the one who stayed and works hard for her. I'm interested to see where they go with this storyline.


Shawn and Maya; I love the father/daughter dynamic they are setting up with them. They have so much in common, it's nice to see how much Maya wants him in her life. Even if he and her mom don't end up together, I'm more interested to see how they continue to handle these two. Anytime Shawn is on the show, the highlight is always his moments with Maya in my opinion.

BMW Characters; I love how the show will give callbacks to moments on Boy Meets World, showing brief clips from the show. I also like that characters from the past are starting to make appearances. Like when Alan, Amy, Josh and Shawn made their first appearance in the Christmas episode. It was great to see them all again. I also like that Josh and Shawn have been in more after that. Eric made his first appearance last friday and it was absolutely fantastic!! They all add a sense of familiarity to those of us who watched Boy Meets World. It's a really nice element of the show.


I've loved this show so much! I'm so glad I got caught up. I'm looking forward to where they go with this show, I hope it's on for a while. It's just such a fun show to watch!

Was Boy Meets World one of your childhood shows? Are you loving Girl Meets World?

Mental Health Awareness Week; Zoella raises awareness about anxiety

It's Mental Health Awareness Week this week, and I thought I'd touch base on anxiety and my experience with it by highlighting an amazing article from Glamour Magazine UK where Zoe Sugg aka Zoella spoke to them about her experience with anxiety.

 

As I may have mentioned once or twice on here, I have alot in common with Zoe, but one of the main things is unfortunately anxiety. From the moment I first heard Zoe's experiences with anxiety, I immediately related to her and have also learned a few things through her blog and her YouTube channel. This article is great because it helps further raise awareness that anxiety is a severe form of Mental Illness, and it's not something you can easily shrug off.


What anxiety is

"I would describe anxiety as a little part of your brain that refuses to let you do particular things with ease because of the way it's programmed. I also like to say that a person with anxiety is like a car on the street whose alarm gets set off by a little leaf that's fallen from a tree, whereas the people who don't experience anxiety are the cars that the only time their alarm goes off is if someone is breaking into it. It can really debilitate and control the way people live their lives."
I wanted to highlight this because I think that's a perfect analogy of what anxiety is. I hope for those who don't suffer with anxiety or who don't suffer as extremely will read this and get a bit of a better understanding what someone who deals with anxiety on a regular basis goes through.
I first realised I was suffering from anxiety and panic attacks when I was 14
"I noticed that I started declining exciting things in the fear of feeling as though I might have these strange symptoms creep up on me like they had been more and more. Anxiety is something I knew absolutely nothing about as a young teenager; in fact mental health was something that had never been on my radar, so for a very long time I was confused.

"I thought that all teenagers must experience these strange feelings as they go through puberty, and when I realised that my friends didn't feel the same way I did, I looked into it more myself. My initial symptoms would happen whenever I felt in a situation where I felt forced, or felt I couldn't leave. My heart would race; I'd feel sick; my breath was short and quick; I felt so hot but shivered with cold and I felt like the room was closing in on me."

I also had my first panic attack at 14, and was suffering with anxiety before that, I just never understood what it was that was wrong with me. I knew I was different. It felt like, and still do at times, that everyone around had a handle on things, and I couldn't and I didn't understand why. You always just chalk it up to being shy because that's what everyone around you calls it. But it's so much more, and I never knew and I was too scared to tell anyone or look into what was wrong with me. Big mistake on my part. I wish I had done things differently, but when you're young, you don't know.
The biggest difficulty is not feeling able to do the things I want to
"The most difficult thing for me having anxiety is feeling like I am not able to do all the things I'd like to do, or that I'm asked to do or take part in. Where I am taking part, there is usually a huge build up in my mind, months and weeks of feeling anxious about it before it takes place, making it even more of a big deal. I also think it's very important to keep trying to do them. So where I have done something that's scary (for me) and managed to get through the day, it feels great. It's important never to give up even when you feel like you can't do things. It's also important not to push yourself too hard that you never want to do anything ever again. Another difficult aspect is when people who don't understand, don't TRY to understand or have no empathy. It can feel very isolating and disheartening."
         There is a myth that people with anxiety should just get over it
"Or that they should pull themselves together or that it's really not that bad. To the person feeling the effects of anxiety, it's very real and can be frustrating, upsetting and scary. If it were as simple as just getting on with things, that's definitely what we would be doing and nobody would have this issue. Anxiety isn't something that people get rid of, it's something that you learn to manage and control. That can take time and patience from the person experiencing it and from people around that person." 
This is the biggest downfall. There's plenty of things that I want to, but my fear and anxiety will keep from doing. I build up certain things too much in mind that it can start to make me feel anxious, and then I won't want to do it. But I agree it's important to try, and I'm trying more lately slowly, one step at a time.

When people don't understand or try to, Zoe's right, it is very isolating and disheartening. When I hear people say to me or to someone I know with anxiety things like "it's all in your mind".."you just need to not think about it and get over it"..etc, it absolutely infuriates and upsets me because people like that clearly don't understand, and don't want to. I'm not saying it's something you need to learn, but if you care about someone who is suffering, trying to understand goes a long way. Understand that the person suffering can't help it, and be sensitive to the things you say and the way you act around them. Because without knowing it, insensitivity towards anxiety can cause an anxious person to feel anxious and like they aren't normal and like they're alone. When really, the opposite is true.


This is a video Zoe bravely uploaded last June when she was daily vlogging, showing her having an anxious day where she was overwhelmed and experiencing self-doubt. Too big factors in anxiety. I remember when I first watched this, I cried because I felt for her, and I've been there many times.





I've inserted these three videos of Zoe's because all three are ones I rewatch whenever I'm feeling particularly anxious and need a reminder I'm not alone. I've post two of these ones before in my Living with Anxiety post I did back in October. But they've really helped me, and I'm hoping they can help others who may not have seen them. Her 'Just Say Yes' is mostly about learning to say yes to things you wouldn't normally in fear of anxiety getting in the way. Something I'm trying to do more and more as of late. (Ignore the NCS bits, unless you live in the UK or Ireland and are of age to sign up because it does sound like an amazing program to be apart of).

Anyways, I hope this has helped further raise awareness of Mental Health, and anxiety. Please read Zoe's article and watch her videos if you want a better understanding of anxiety, whether you suffer with it yourself or you want to learn more about it to help understand someone you know who suffers. 


Thanks for reading!!

Fangirl - Book Review


Started: May 6, 2015 | Finished: May 13, 2015

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Published by St. Martin's Griffin on September 10, 2013
Genre: YA, contemporary 
Pages: 433
Book Edition: Hardcover
No. of times read: 1

Synopsis: 
A coming-of-age tale of fanfiction, family and first love 
CATH IS A SIMON SNOW FAN. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan... But for Cath, being a fan is her life--and she's really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it's what got them through their mother leaving. 
Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fanfiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere. 
Cath's sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can't let go. She doesn't want to. 
Now that they're going to college, Wren has told Cath that she doesn't want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She's got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend; a fiction-writing professor who thinks fanfiction is the end of the civilized world; a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words...and she can't stop worrying about her dad, who's loving and fragile and has never really been alone 
For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?
Rating: 5/5 

My Review:

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! It was right up my alley! I identified with Cath so much in so many ways. Her fangirl lifestyle, and her anxieties. Obviously there was some things I didn't identify with, but I understood her so well. I'm going to miss her, and all the other characters in this book.

I immediately loved Levi, and Reagan was so cool. I liked Wren, and the sisters bond and the drama between them. Their dad was cool, and I loved Cath's relationship with him. Honestly, I just got so invested in all these characters this past week and I'm defintiely going to re-read this one at some point in my life.

I actually enjoyed the fanfiction element of the book. I liked that it was basically Harry Potter, but with different characters and a different world. I've been reading fanfiction since I was in the 7th grade, so around 12 or 13. I don't read as much as I use to anymore, but I completely get it. There's also really talented writers out there, some I call my best internet friends, who I'm so lucky to have "met" through fanfiction and the internet.

I can't express just how much I loved and connected with book enough. I love love loved it!!!

Have you read Fangirl? What are your thoughts on it?

Thanks for reading!!

Book vs Movie: The Best of Me


Book vs Movie: 
The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks

Synopsis:

THE BEST OF ME is the heart-rending story of two small-town former high school sweethearts from opposite sides of the tracks. Now middle-aged, they've taken wildly divergent paths, but neither has lived the life they imagined . . . and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever altered their world. When they are both called back to their hometown for the funeral of the mentor who once gave them shelter, they will be forced to confront the choices each has made, and ask whether love can truly rewrite the past.

The way I go about book adaptations is usually watch the movie first instead of the other way around. Of course this isn't always, but mainly I try to do it this way because it's less unsatisfying. Almost everytime that I've read the book first, I was disappointed with the movie because I was too busy focusing on what they changed and what they left out. But when I watch the movie first, reading the book is like getting a better version of what I just watched, most of the time. I'm telling you this because I want to do more posts like this, and I thought I'd tell you how I go about it as from what I can tell, the majority of people are opposite to me.

Okay The Best of Me, let's dig in shall we! I'm going discuss certain changes in this post. I'm assuming if you're reading this then you've either read the book or seen the movie, or both.

What I liked in the movie was that the chain of events circled more around the Cole family, and that there were no outside parties. In the book, there was the Bonner family as well as Candy's story, while it all tied together in the end. I felt like it was just unnecessary and I wasn't interested in that part of the book so much as the main characters stories. Instead of Dawson accidentally killing Dr. David Bonner in a car accident, he accidentally kills his cousin/best friend while fighting his father.

The movie was more realistic in my opinion. There was no ghost guiding Dawson along the way. I liked that we got to see more of Amanda and Dawson's love story when they were kids in the movie. But I also liked that the book gave more focus to their reunion. So as far as Amanda and Dawson's story goes, I liked both. I also really liked that the relationship between Dawson and Tuck was stronger in the movie than in the book.

The actors chosen for the movie did a great job. It's just tricky when you pick two actors to play the young version, and two different actors to play the older version. I get nitpicky if they don't look similar, and in my opinion the guy who played Dawson didn't look like he similar to James Marsden. But his performance was so well done, that I got past it, and it ended not being as bad as I originally thought when seeing the trailer.

So with all that said, this round goes to..
Movie wins over Book

What did you think of the book to movie adaption of The Best of Me?

Rating: 3.5/5

My Review:

First, I just wanted to say two things. Remember my post about the Nicholas Sparks franchise and how I was going to read all my Nicholas Sparks books in a row...changed my mind! I will try to read them all this year, but in between other books. Also my mom and I never got around to seeing The Longest Ride and now it's no longer in theaters here. So I'll wait until that is released on DVD before I read it because I want to read and watch around the same time.

Okay onto The Best of Me.

When I first read this book, two years ago, I was so devastated by the ending that I felt unsatisfied with it. But after revisiting it and having watched the movie, as heartbreaking as the ending is, it all ties up nicely and makes sense so I've come to terms with it.

What I love about this book is the love story between Amanda and Dawson, and how it's everlasting. A tale of two kids who fell passionately in love, separated by circumstances, and reunited 20 years later to realize that love is still there, and always will be. I also really love the relationship each other them had with Tuck, and how he arranged for them to handle his dying wishes.

What I didn't love about the book, as with most Nicholas Sparks books, is all the exposition. Nicholas Sparks has a tendency to go a little too in detail when it's not necessary. It makes the book drag at times, in my opinion. It's the one thing that does bother me about his books. But he's still one of my favourites because he does writes beautiful love stories.

Were you a fan of The Best of Me? What are your thoughts on it?

TV Talk; The Office


Genre: sitcom, mockumentary
No. of Seasons: 9 | No. of episodes: 201
Network: NBC
Premiere Date: March 24, 2005 | Series Finale: May 16, 2013

I finally got around to watching all 9 seasons of The Office on Netflix. I've always wanted to watch this show, especially in the last 5 years that I've been on tumblr. Anytime I saw a gifset of funny Michael Scott one-liners, or of the romance between Jim and Pam, I'd want to start watching but continued to put it off. So finally for the last month, I've been catching up of 9 years of television, and I was not disappointed. 


I'm not the biggest Steve Carrell fan. I don't hate him, but I don't love him either. Sometimes his character was a little too much for me personally, but I ended up loving Michael Scott for his obliviousness and how much he cared for his employees, and yes I sobbed during his farewell episode. 

 

The core romance of the show is Jim Halpert and Pam Beesley. He's a salesman, she's the receptionist. They start off as just friends though he's loved her right from the start. Their romance is every shipper's dream. Of course it's not all smooth sailing, but that's the fun of it. They are just so realistic, but also so idealistic, if that makes sense. They are mainly what drew me in to the show, and I'm so glad because I loved their story the most and I knew I would.


I can't talk about The Office and not mention the rivalry between Jim and Dwight which I loved! Jim's pranks are always the highlight of the show in my opinion. Dwight's character is such an easy target because he takes everything so seriously. So it's always fun to watch the pranks Jim comes up with for him, and seeing his reaction. 

Here's one of the many Jim/Dwight pranks that I loved!


Overall, I really liked the whole ensemble. They all gelled really well together, and all had their own uniqueness. I also liked that it was a true mockumentary. It was presented like they were filming a documentary the whole time, and it felt that way throughout the whole series and of course payed off in the final episodes. Shows like Modern Family and Parks and Recreation have mockumentary style in them where they are sitting down and talking to the camera, but you don't feel like they are in a documentary. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love those shows! But I just liked that The Office really felt like it was filming a documentary making the looks to the camera and the sit down interviews valid.

Are you a fan of The Office? What do you like about it? Who's your favourite character?

Thanks for reading!!
