Positive Monday

Positive Monday: SMILE

 :

I was told that if I smile hard enough, my left dimple shows up to the party too. 🙂

Anyways, it’s Monday, I’m in a good mood, and I just want to share some of my favorite pinned (Pinterest) photos to put a smile on your face today. And remember, smiling is free, but it’s worth a lot especially if it can make someone’s day. 🙂

We first met Juniper on Instagram, where we saw her frolicking on her mom's bed, and instantly fell in love. Who was this cute fox? So we decided to reach out to her owner, who gave us the full scoop!

Weekend blessings!

           You’ve got mail…

Hello everyone! I just want to wish all of you a wonderfully blessed weekend!

I won’t be logging into any social media platforms this weekend as I’ll be using this weekend to rewind and catching up with my writing, that is, after the Sabbath of course! If you happen to read any post while I am away, it’s because they’re scheduled. 

Have a fantastic weekend. God bless.

Inspiration & Words

Thankful Thursday: World Gratitude Day!

Be grateful for every new dawn.

It’s easy to focus on the things that we don’t have and complain about it, instead of being thankful and content with the things that we do have.

I know I always say this, but I am thankful for life; that I am breathing because I did not have to wake up this morning. I am grateful for life’s little moments because with everything going on in the world right now, life is fleeting. I am grateful for my family, my friends, and my co-workers. I am eternally grateful for our Savior. My sister just brought me a small token and I am very grateful for it. ❤

Gratitude improves our lives and that’s why we should be grateful for every living moment. For me, every day is World Gratitude Day!

On the Real Tho

Hahaha! I laugh because I actually like the Dobre Brothers and this song shouldn’t have made it on the list given that I already watched the video.

I don’t know how many of you know the brothers, but they might not ring a bell because they’re not famous (as yet) and they’re actually YouTubers currently trying their voices out on the YouTube rap scene. 

Maybe I’ll just talk about the lyrics or point out how many times they do a backflip because, really, I’ve seen this video so it’s going to be hard to react to it and they’re known for doing backflips.

Also, my reactions may not be your cup of tea. It might be sarcastic and I also tear lyrics apart. Let’s react to it in 3…2…1…

0:01: The beat, though! And it’s shot in New York City, once the city of big dreams.

0:08: Their jackets are SLAYING! If it’s one thing, these boys know how to dress.

But I am not a fan of ripped clothing:

0:34: Backflip. Lucas.

0:36: That escalated quickly. Another backflip; this time by Cyrus.

0:37: You can’t judge. You can’t talk. You just sit and hate. Step it up. Show us up. Show what you create… Currently just nodding my head along.

0:44: And another backflip! Thank you, Marcus.

0:45: Time to stick the truth. If you don’t change the game. Nobody won’t remember you… But I don’t want to be remembered! 

0:50: On the real tho. On the real tho. On the…

1:01: Come in Lucas!

1:03: You didn’t know before, but now make sure you better know… I feel so threatened! Why is he threatening me?

1:16: Try to bring me down. I stay above. We doing well… Don’t let people bring you down. Regardless of what they try to do to bring you down, stay focus because with God on your side, who can be against you?

1:21: You can’t break me. God has eyes on our back and our phones… Honestly, I don’t know if he’s saying ‘God has eyes on’ or just ‘God has our’ because he’s saying it so fast. Eh!

1:25: On the real tho. On the real tho… 

1:29: Lucas be getting his dance groove on with that fancy hand gesture. Haha!

1:37: And here comes the brother who can’t wait for his name to be written in the stars: Darius. Lowkey, his eyebrows are goals.

1:46: That smiling shot of the brothers is the best shot of the video.

1:47: I got my brothers. We counting we counting. No, we ain’t stopping… The Count, is that you, bro?

Image result for The Count gif

1:58: Haters wanting this. They just sit and wish… Yes, because it’s easy to hate someone who is going after their dream wishing that you were in their place. I mean, why hate when you can be happy for others?

2:01: On the real tho. On the real tho… 

2:12: Last, but not least, Lucas’s other half, Marcus. *shrugging* I don’t understand how people mix up the twins. They’re very easy to tell apart. 

Image result for marcus dobre

2:18: Backflip! Brought to you by Marcus. 

2:19: Listen to them haters. They just beggin for attention. Sit yourself down. I’mma take you to detention… SAVAGE!

2:28: You just hating like the rest. You ain’t nothing new. Words mean nothing. I’m all about the action…

Image result for gif mic drop

2:38: HAHAHA! 

2:47: Backflips! I think it’s 7 in total. I lost count.

On the real tho, you don’t need a million dollars to make a video look good. On the real tho, the Dobre twins give you happy vibes. 

On the real ‘tho, this is Dobre Brothers before fame. When they blow up, I won’t be expecting any more family-oriented content videos or music videos such as these.

This Reaction Music Week theme was a blast! I’ll like to do Part two next week God’s willing (if you’ll like to leave suggestions), but I already have another theme in mind so I’ll probably do part two next month. God bless and I pray you have a safe and blessed weekend.

Six-Ten-Word Story Week!

I love fun writing challenges! This week is going to be a blast!

I asked for photo prompts and I received them! 

This week, I am doing a six-ten-word story challenge and I am excited to get a move on it. It’s been a while since I’ve done photo prompts with limited words and I am anticipating what words I can dole out during the week.

These are the pictures that I received:

Six-Word Story (Monday)

Yay! My twins! See those identical smiles? This story is going to be about smiles. 🙂

Thursday Ten: favorite YouTube channels

Subscribe? *shrugging* why not?

I have a few YouTube channels that I frequent whenever I get the time. It’s around 15, but I’m going to just randomly put down whatever comes to mind first. Let’s do this!

1. Matthew Santoro

This lovable shiny bald head goof probably has the brightest smile you’ll ever see on YouTube. He is my utmost favorite YouTuber. Santoro mainly posts “50 Amazing Facts” and top 10 lists videos. I dubbed him the Dr. Reid of YouTube and I love learning from every area he covers on his channel even if it’s haunted history. 

2. Lucas and Marcus

They make me wish I had a twin.

Image result for marcus and lucas with dog

My twins! Well, I’ve featured them quite a bit this week, so I won’t go into many details. They post videos about pranks, gymnastics, and challenges, and sometimes the entire family makes an appearance.

One day, these two lovable idiots would go far with a prank and their mom would kick them out of the house. They’re lucky they have cool parents.

3. Dobre Brothers

“We’re the Dobre brothers and we do backflips.”

Related image

This channel is relatively new, and they have 12 videos so far. It consists of twins Marcus and Lucas and their older brothers, Darius and Cyrus. So far, they’ve posted some really cool harmless pranks like the sticky note on the twins’ car (video below).

4. Fédération Française de Football

This is the national French football team channel. They mostly post training sessions, highlights from games, and interviews with the players. 

5. Tottenham Hotspur

Another football channel that I like. I recently enjoyed captain Hugo Lloris’s saves against Juventus. 

6. Comme une Française

Image result for Comme une Française

Geraldine is my overall favorite French teacher on YT. She takes her time to explain what words and phrases mean making you pay attention. I highly recommend her channel for English speakers interested in learning this beautiful language. 

7. Lily Petals World

Image result for Lily Petals World

I love interracial couples and this Blasian family is too cute. Lily is from Korea and James is from Kenya. The pair met and fell in love in Korea. I love their channel because it gives you an intimate insight into Korean culture. Love is a feeling, not a color.

8. Meet The Eagles

I recently came across this couple and I think they were cute, so I stayed a little bit. I am relatively new to them so I’ll watch more of their videos in my spare time. Ovoke and Giuseppe are an interracial pair (Nigerian/Dutch/Italian) and they live in the Netherlands. Love is a feeling, not a color.

9. Learn French With Frencheezee

This channel was actually recommended by YouTube and I am happy that they did because this channel is incredibly helpful when it comes to learning French.

10. Saddleback Church

I came across this channel also recently by accident and decided to stay.

August 10th: Moved to tears

 :

Describe the last time you were moved to tears by something beautiful.

Oh, great, I get to keep up with my YouTube Week theme. Yay! 

I am a sensitive crybaby. There, the truth is out. The simplest things may move me even if it’s a sunset splendidly setting in all its glory. I get moved by the stories I read and the movies I watch. I returned to YouTube recently and caught up with some of my favorite channels. I know you might be sick by now of seeing the Dobre twins, but hey, it’s YouTube Week and I am answering the prompt. 🙂

So, to reply to today’s question, the last time I was moved to tears was when Lucas brought his twin his dream car. I mean, I know the car is materialistic, but the feeling of fulfilling your dreams, the appreciation and unconditional love from family, is beautiful. And this is why some of us work, so we can reap the rewards and benefits and share it with our loved ones. ❤ Lucas could’ve bought himself a car because I am certain he has a dream car in mind, but he selflessly brought his twin’s dream car. If this is not a beautiful gesture, then I don’t know what is.

Entertainment

Reaction videos

I don’t know what it is with reaction videos on YouTube, but we love them!

Some YouTubers are popular for dancing, twinning, dissing, or tutorials, and then there are the ones who react to videos. 

Image result for gif reactions

Reaction videos are the rage! YouTubers react to any and everything once it’s a video. They react to newly released movie trailers, music videos, video games, TV shows, fandoms, and fellow YouTubers’ videos. I think the reason why we love them so much is the fact that there are people out there who might have the same reaction as us while watching a video and we can discuss what we like or didn’t like about it.

I tend to choose my reaction videos wisely, though, for some of the people doing the reacting tend to curse a lot and it turns me off. The last one I watched was a YT suggestion for Marcus and Lucas’s I Brought My Twin His Dream Car (Emotional) by ReactBros. The twins made a lot of big guys cry with this video, but this reaction was one of my favorite.
