What’s your top 5 or top 10 of the map of the soul :7?! Yes I know I only did nine, figured I’d stop now before I list the entire album.

BLACKPINK in your area!

. BLACKPINK!!!!. Now I’ll be the first to admit…I was EXTREMELY nervous when it came to this album. Their first two singles ( even though they’ve grown on me now) were kind of a let down and repetitive. But lovesick girls didn’t let me down ONE BIT. From the actual single lovesick girls to the video, I AM LIVING. IM SHOOK….I actually low-key thought this album would sound the same. They really had me worried, but of course the girls came through and went SUPER HARD. and even have a few songs telling the haters to F off and they’re those girls for a reason!!

Favorites: PRETTY SAVAGE

Love to hate me

I’f you’ve been on the fence about blackpink or if you’re a black pink hater, listen to this album. It may change your mind!!! Either way the girls don’t care. And I’m living for SAVAGE BLACKPINK. YESSS GIRLS.

The Craft is finally here.

The Craft REBOOT OR REMAKE…I’m not quite sure which, but it’s finally here! Well the poster and trailer that it is. It seems to be trying to do something a bit different than the original while copying the original story line. So I’m honestly a bit confused on how it will play out. First impressions from the poster, I was HYPED. first impressions from the trailer, I’m big worried. It does look decent and the acting seems fine, it’s just when they’re showing the girls using magic it looks a little *disney* to me and cringe. I know sometimes trailers suck and don’t do the movie Justice. So I’ll hold out until I can actually watch the entire film to judge. I’m still excited for it, and of course it can’t replace or beat the original. But maybe it’s not trying to and it’s continuing the legacy, hence the movie name. They do make a few references to the original, so I’m very curious to see how it all plays out. You know the plot already, new lonely cute (white) girl moves to town and befriends a bunch of other lonely cute girls. I will say I like the little diversity we got going on this reboot. We have a CHOCOLATE black actress, a trans actress, a Jewish actress and then our white lead. I’m a fan of the actresses by themselves, so I’m also curious to see their on-screen chemistry. I also LOVE that it’s being released during October and just in time for the best Holiday ever-Halloween. It already gets points from me for that. Guess we will just have to wait until October 28 to see if it flops or it’s a Bop. I’m sure I’ll enjoy it either way. Are you down for the remake or over remakes ?! Let me know down below.

Why I’m so hard on Little Mix

I talk ALOT of mess when it comes to my girls. But I feel like I can do that. Because one, I’ve been a fan since X -factor days. I’ve watched them grow and get better with each album..I KNOW what they’re capable of. The damage they could really and truly do if they had a better team. There is no reason why little mix shouldn’t be up there with blackpink in terms of popularity!! They have the visuals, the VOCALS, the dance routines, the fashion and they come up with really cute ideas for each album. And they all actually love each other and love being in little mix. They just have a sucky team AND they don’t want to actually do the work. When holiday was being released and they had to choose between promo and vacation and they chose VACATION I was so aggravated. Like you all are NOT where y’all want to be with your careers and you’re choosing to go on a damn holiday!?!! I’ve recently gotten into kpop and the amount of work and time and details they put into their craft- I’m honestly SHOOK. little mix would never, which sucks because if they had the work ethic of a kpop artist they would be MASSIVE. I go so hard for them and I’m so hard on them because I know they can be the best!! They’re the best girl group we’ve gotten in years!!!! They have it all, and I’m not just gasing them up because I love them or because they’re pretty. They can actually SING AND DANCE . They have great music. Their ballads are untouchable!!! I just want the world to stop sleeping on them, I want them to finally get with a team that loves them and promotes them and I want them to work harder!! Because if they really push themselves, they could be the BEST GIRLGROUP OF ALL TIME. PERIOD!!! they’re almost there, like literally on the tip of worldwide success, they just gotta push a little harder and make more sacrifices. I know they can do it, I wish they felt that way too and pushed a little further and a little HARDER. WE ARE READY FOR THEM TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD.

Steady are we READY?!?

Listen…. I have such small but high hopes. My girls are talented… So talented. But the lack of promo and decent videos of the last two singles has got me a little worried. Will the album be Amazingg?! I’m sure, if it’s one thing little mix does well every single time.. it’s produce an amazing album!!! They give us visuals with the album artwork and they always deliver VOCALS. IM just worried about the roll out of promo, since that’s their weak spot. At the moment they’ve been doing more promo for their new tv show and the album had kinda taken the backseat. Am I excited!? Yes, am I also super nervous? Yes! Do I even care about the new tv show!? Not really, but it’s a boss move and it’s good promo. They’ve recently filmed ANOTHER video for another single… And PERRIE has been hyping it up.. but they also hyped up holiday. And although the song was great, the video and promo was lackluster. Not to mention we had to wait a whole month for the video. I’m trying to refrain from doing to many reviews until the actual album comes out. So we will see with this new single+video. Fingers crossed little mix finally get it right.

BTS

Maybe I’ve been living under a rock or maybe I was just ignoring all the glory that is BTS. I think the toxic part of their fandom and the hysteria turned me off to be honest. And I ran as fast as I could from BTS. I didn’t want a repeat of my one direction days. But alas after hearing dynamite (watching the video and becoming CURIOUS), I’ve become a full blown fan within a month. I don’t know how it happened… Or when it happened or WHY it happened. But I’m now a bts stan and LOVING EVERY BIT OF IT. I WAS A BIT overwhelmed at first trying to catch up on 7 years worth of interviews, music videos and albums.( I’m still not caught up). These guys are truly the whole entire package and I’m not even the slightest bit KIDDING. Their dance routines ALONE are super intricate and complex. And every time they perform THEY BASICALLY TURN IT INTO A BTS CONCERT. THEY ARE INSANE. not to mention they have vocals to match their dance skills ANDDDD they have a rap line. Who are absolutely ridiculous in their own right. Them being cute just puts the icing on the cake of their massive talent. And they happen to be extremely humble about all of their success. Which you don’t see often , especially with stars that young‼️ they aren’t flashy and for the most part stay out of the tabloids . I could go on and on about how talented they are,and how HARD THEY WORK, but you truly would have to see it for yourself. I see them often being compared to one direction in terms of fandoms and how famous they are, and as a one direction stan I have to tell you… ONE DIRECTION COULD NEVER. THEY CAN’T SIT WITH BTS, THEY CAN’T BREATHE THE SAME AIR AS BTS AND THEY MIGHT AS WELL BE ON ANOTHER PLANET FROM BTS. BTS are truly the group of this generation and in a league all their own!!!! Stop sleeping on them because their fans are mostly teen girls and you’ll be surprised. They have bops on top of bops. Check them out for yourselves!!!!!

They prove that language has no barrier when it comes to great music!!!!

Don’t EVER settle

I’ve finally reached that point in my life. The point where I realized I’m gonna be single for a while until I can find my equal. Ever since I’d become interested in boys and dating ,I settled. I may have not known it then, but any boy who called me cute or paid me any type of attention , had my heart. I didn’t care that they treated me like shit or they strung me along. As long as I had “someone”. Yes, I had super low self-esteem and was supper shy and had about a billion insecurities. I once wasted 10 years on a guy. Who was never my official boyfriend by the way. And never intended to be . But loved the girlfriend type things he got by being with me. Imagine the type of low worth man you have to be to string someone along for a decade when you know you’ll never commit to them. And Imagine how much I didn’t know my worth that I put up with it. He always made me feel like I wasn’t good enough for him, when truth is I was probably too good for him. I just didn’t know it. I’ve had more than enough of those type of relationships to last me a lifetime. Seriously, I’ve learned my lesson. My point being is I’ve settled for everything in my life

Jobs

Grades

Friends

Boys

I always accepted the bare minimum. Not until recently have I worked my butt off in every aspect of my life and stopped settling for the bare minimum. And guess what!? It’s cost me friends, and guys. But guess what I’ve gained? EVERYTHING I was supposed to become. I can no longer accpet the bare minimum and I don’t want too!! Those people were simply a distraction, keeping me from achieving my goals. So don’t settle! And if people fall off or leave…. Well LET THEM. They’re not meant to be in your life anyway. Does it absolutely suck being alone and single, especially during a pandemic!??? Yes!! , Trust me I know it does. But imagine the blessings that are about to enter your life for not settling. The best is yet to come and comes to those who are patient. We’re gonna make it, we won’t be alone forever.

Being Ambitious

If I’ve learned anything this year, it’s that when you’re overly ambitious people tend to either be scared of you or doubt you.

This is the busiest and most driven I’ve ever been and instead of being met with praise and positives, I feel like I’m being met with negativity and doubters. I feel people pulling away from me. I feel people rolling their eyes when I talk about my goals and ambitions. I don’t always get the same support I put out. I’ve noticed I’m the only one going hard for my brand. And you know what!?

That’s fine with me. I’ve got an insatiable hunger now that I’ve gotten a taste of what it means to be a boss and I honestly love it. I find myself no longer wanting to be around people who don’t have that same hunger . I now longer look at men who do the bare minimum and get excited about it. In my eyes if I’m doing xyz and beyond, so do you. I can’t sit at a table where there’s no talk of substance going on. I can’t even begin to think about dating you if you’re not matching my energy and being just as busy if not busier than me. What I want, I get but only because I’m willing to work my ass off for it. If you can’t keep up, I suggest you move to the side So I can get it done. I’m no longer waiting on anyone to get what I need done. I’m doing it by myself and for myself.

God’s Timing…

I’ve been feeling low latley and feeling like God has left me to suffer. I often ask him “why would you make me this way only for people to not understand me or like me” . But the thing with God is who you are is exactly who you’re meant to be. If the people in your life don’t like you or understand you, those people aren’t meant to be in your life. Period. When the same type of negative , manipulative people come into your life over and over , God is trying to teach you a lesson. Those people aren’t for you and you deserve better. But until you see that and believe it, he’s going to keep testing you.

I don’t know what God has in store for me. And I sometimes get impatient because I’m ready for my BLESSINGS NOW. But I know God has something AMAZING for me. It has to be, there’s no way he would take away something bad to only be left with nothing at all. And from what he’s done for me so far…. I can only imagine the blessings I’m about to be rolling in.
