Teaser Tuesday: The Barcelona Job

We’re already panicking about the new season and pressuring the board to buy proper players although the La Liga is yet to kick off. This season, it’s all about the football life.ย 

Teaser Tuesday:

A week ago (or maybe it was two weeks ago? Not sure with the time flying by so fast), I announced my new writing projectย The Barcelona Job which I am currently writing during the 2017/18 football season. I must admit that I am nowhere near the 5th chapter as yet, but I’ll be getting there soon. I am currently trying to write the 3rd chapter.

It’s going to be an interesting season!

I am contemplating on sharing this story on Wattpad, but I am not sure if I’ll share it outside of my friends and family circle just yet.ย 

Twinning is winning!

Over on YouTube, you’re either in a gang or in an army. Then there’s twinning. If you have a twin, then think about how many people you can make happy on YouTube.

People are fascinated by twins (whether identical or fraternal) and now that many of them have YouTube accounts and haveย amassed millions of followers, I can safely say that twinningย is winning. We love to see how they interact with each other because they have that twin telepathy that we normal people don’t have… or do they? Whatever, I love twins. I think they’re awesome!

Although many twins are taking over YT, three pairs stand out for me because on almost every reaction/compilation video I watch regarding Musical.ly or Vines, people are always commenting about…

The Dolan Twins

Grayson and Ethan Dolan has amassed over four million subscribers on YT. The twins are from New Jersey and they mostly perform stunts and challenges on their channel. I can’t say much about them because I don’t know them well.

Here’s their most popular video which has over 11 million views. Grayson, I’m sorry about your wisdom teeth, but I laughed my face off.

Fun Fact: this was actually the first video I sat through of the Dolan Twins given that I don’t follow them and I enjoyed it.

The Martinez Twins

Emilio and Ivan Martinez are from Barcelona, Spain (I think. I am not quite sure). Their fan base is still growing, but they seem to be doing all right.

I have not watched any of their videos, but I’ll post their most popular video which has over six million views. In this video, Emilio pulls a prank on Ivan. And like the Dolan Twins, this is the first time I’ve watched a video from these Latin twins.

The Dobre Twins

These are my twins and they’re literally the cutest thing on YouTube! They started in the grocery store (dancing) and they were known as Twinbotz back then. Marcus and Lucas Dobre are the offsprings of former Romanianย gymnastย Aureliaย Dobre and formerย Iranianย gymnast Bozย Mofid.ย 

They’re known for their backflipsย so we basically call themย Theย Flipping Twins and they makeย me want to do backflips too.ย Hey, if you’re reading this andย you canย do backflips andย front flips, you are AWESOME!

The Dobre twins haveย the sweetest merch ever! They’re very energetic and I like their smiles, too. Have you met their smiles?

Lucas over there with the bear. Marcus aboveย there with the merch.

Their most popular video has over 11 millionย views, butย my favorite video of theirs isย the 100 Layers of Pancakes one, not because I love pancakes, but because of what they did at the end of the video by givingย the remainders to the homeless instead of throwing them away. Stay lit, Marcus and Lucas. Stay lit.

Hit it if you know you lit!

It pays to be a YouTuber and they know it. When they’re not busy pushing their merch in our faces, they’re, well, rapping about being lit.

LIT (English meaning)ย – past and past participle of light

LIT (this generation meaning) – When something is popping or turned up.

I think I might have used this GIF a month or two aback. ๐Ÿ˜›

If it’s one word that is overused by YouTubers it is ‘lit’. Almost every channel I visit (or YT suggests), everyone is like ‘That’s so lit!’ or ‘It’s lit, y’all!’ Once there was a rock band call Lit (‘My Own Worst Enemy’ fame) and that was a time when the word ‘lit’ was not thrown around carelessly as the youngsters are doing now. We can blame the rappers, though. They’ve taken ‘lit’ to another whole level because every day they’re lit. *insert eye roll here*

Speaking of rapping,ย YouTubers are rappers now and it doesn’t exclude the Dobre Brothers (Cyrus, Darius, Lucas, and Marcus). The brothers have abused the word so much so why not make a song about it, eh? Guys?

Hit it like you don’t care

They have no bars, or flow – save Cyrus – but I like silly. I like the fact that the super cars are their very own and not a rental and how they give God thanks for everything that they have. Now, that is lit! But I still don’t know what I’m hitting although I’m not scared… oh, the subscribe button. Hit it if you know you lit. I see what they did there, guys. ^.^

What’s on the menu for YouTube week?

YouTubers be like, “If you like this video, give it a thumbs up and please subscribe to the channel.” No, don’t tell me what to do! I don’t want to be forced to subscribe. I just came here to watch a video! Most of the titles are click bait, too, but I still click it. Welcome to YouTube.

Whaaattt’s up guys and welcome to my channel! Today we’re going to talk about… hold up, wait, this is not YouTube.ย 

I haven’t been on YouTube for a while, but because of my lack of inspiration towards life in general, I ended up lying in bed and catching up with some of my favorite YouTube channels over the weekend. And an idea struck: why not have a themed week every once in a while? So I start with YouTube.ย

My lack of inspiration has led to this so blame it on that. Here’s what to expect this week:

^ Hit It If You Know You Lit

> Twinning is winning

^ Reaction videos!

> The dark/weird side of YouTube

^ Thursday Ten: My favorite YouTube channels

> Clickbaitย 

So, those are the topics. I am not certain how it’s going to go as yet, but I’ll try to complete some of them if not all this week. YouTube Week, let’s go!

Teaser Tuesday: The Barcelona Job

Teaser Tuesday:

My love for football is only growing despite our love-hate relationship. This 2017/18 season, I’ve decided to work on a story revolving around FC Barcelona which I’ll be working on at least twice a week. It’s also an excuse to practice my writing. ^^

There’s going to be talks of dribbles and tricks…

Record breaking milestones and silverware…

Potential goodbyes…

And of course, friendship and love…

Here’s what I’ve worked on thus far:

SUMMARY

I literally suck at writing summaries, plots, etc., because they tend to change as the story progresses and I have to go back and rewrite them, but I have something that I can see myself sticking with.

Itโ€™s a French revolution in Spain!

Marcus da Dรญxon is a young football coach who is given the monumental task of overseeing FC Barcelona for the 2017-18 season. The team is aiming to win every silverware available beginning with the International Champions Cup. When Marcus first takes charge of the team he makes it clear to the boys that he did not take up the position to lose and he wonโ€™t be tolerating bad conduct.

The boys soon learn that their new coach is very vocal and vows to try their best to avoid embarrassment in the press, but things donโ€™t always go as planned when they discovered that their new boss dislikes everything that their rival Real Madrid stands for including their bald headed coach.

EXCERPT

The story is still in the early stage, so I don’t have many chapters as yet. This bit is taken from the first chapter that I am yet to edit so excuse grammatical errors and lame sentences. ๐Ÿ™‚

The journalists couldnโ€™t stop staring at the new FC Barcelona coach and his mirror identical assistant. They were around 5โ€™11โ€ with strong handsome features. Their eyes were bluer than the skies above and their hair so brown that it could almost pass for a shade of auburn. They couldnโ€™t be told apart very easily and the journalists were afraid to address the wrong one so no one said anything for a little over a minute until Marcus sighs and broke the silence with a dry joke,

โ€œDonโ€™t be afraid to speak Catalan; Iโ€™m a polyglot and so is my other half.โ€

A few of the journalists chuckled.

โ€œWelcome to Barcelona, Mr. da Dรญxon,โ€ a blonde haired man decided to go bravely. โ€œWeโ€™re still on the fence about you given that the club ditched tradition this time and went for someone who didnโ€™t even play for the club to coach the team. What makes you so special?โ€

Marcus shrugs. โ€œArenโ€™t you special too?โ€

COVER REVEAL

I am having fun working on covers for potential stories and this one is my favorite thus far…ย 

Thank you for reading. ๐Ÿ™‚

Teaser Tuesday: Cover wars!

Teaser Tuesday:

Good evening all. I hope that you’ve been having a blessed day. I still have to do some catching up where it concerns some of the blogs, so if I don’t get to yours anytime soon, I’ll certainly be doing so before the week is out.

In the past few days, I’ve been trying to come up with the perfect cover for my new story,ย Setepai. This story takes place in Ancient Egypt and modern London and yes, it was inspired by The Mummy (the Tom Cruise one). Had it not been for Sylvia ofย thatdiary this story wouldn’t have existed. So, this one is for you, girl. โค

I’m still learning to use colors and what not, but these are the covers that I’ve come up with so far:

I like this one because it captures the Ancient Egyptian setting.

This one is actually my least favorite. Note the smudge. I thought it was creative
at first, but now, not so much.

This one kind of resembles the first one (& 2nd because of the top smudge),
but itโ€™s not as dark as the first and you can see the words clearly.

My utmost favorite, but I still want to go with the first.

You might ask why do you fit in this. Well, you’re going to help me decide which cover do you think is best suited for the story. Let me know in the comments below. ๐Ÿ™‚
