Its been a while since I’ve done a music obsessions session! I usually like these quite a bit. Plus, it fills on the rather eventless week.
Unless you’d like to listen to me rant on about my ridiculously bad days and the crazy busy days that go too fast and well, that I’d really hope for all of you to wish for some miracle where I can pull off this deadline. Today has embarked into 10 hour work day already, and as the end of the month inches closer, tomorrow looks pretty intense. Not really looking forward to that so yes, my MP3 is loaded with new music to get me through and when in doubt, I have my trusty radio (although they haven’t been playing really good music). I don’t know about your stations but every time I turn on mine, its either player Timber (*rolls eyes*) or some Rihanna song. I’m not a huge fan to begin with as in I tolerated it when it first started but now, its just getting annoying.
Ah, the ranting started…I’m so sorry. Let me get back on track!
I’d have to take back that this week was eventless. It actually was pretty busy with hangouts with friends and house stuff. Before we get to the music, lets give you a few updates on my house renovation progress 🙂
My boyfriend had a week off and he was mega awesome and while I found little bits of time here and there to start shifting my stuff over (such as winter clothes). He officially finished everything for the master bedroom and can sleep in there now. We have a lovely shade of purplish-brown with trimmings of an off whitish-yellow. It looks really awesome! Seriously, its way better than I had imagined. Plus, my bathroom color was a guesstimate when we went to buy the paint and it was THIS COLOUR! Its still missing the trimmings but the bathroom is absolutely soothing to look at 🙂 I don’t know who showers and looks at the ceiling but I know I’ll be admiring it quite a bit and drifting off into my zone.
Nothing really beats how I really felt this quote represents my weekend.
This weekend, my best friend had some good news to share which actually makes me so happy for her. Seeing the people I love happy really makes me feel great. But, my best friend knows me well enough that she initiate a hangout in my busy time because she knew that I needed it to just breath and chat. We ended up going for dinner then karaoke but nothing really replaces that feeling of her just being there for me and making sure I’m going to make it through this crazy time. She doesn’t read the blog normally but she knows that I thank her so much for taking me out.
I’ve been really lacking on the movie reviews front and Netflix is joining forces to mess with me because I have 5 movies expiring on May 1st and only a few days to watch it. So I need to make some choices. What movie do you think is a must-see among these five?
- Less Than Zero (1987)
- Welcome to the Rileys (2010)
- From Paris with Love (2010)
- Anna and the King (1999)
- An Invisible Sign (2010)
Please tell me in the comments and tell me what you think?
Now that all the business is out of the way, I’ve been listening on repeat these songs 🙂
Crazy For You – Hedley
I’ve never been much of a Hedley fan but somehow this song is really addictive and catchy. Plus, I just checked out the video this weekend and I think its pretty cool 🙂
We Are Stars – Virginia to Vegas (ft Alyssa Reid)
This song is inspiring and encouraging. Its not about love but just a boost of energy to listen to. It matches what I need nowadays! 🙂
Story of My Life – One Direction (Alex Goot cover)
This one is the most recent one as this cover was only out this weekend, I believe. I really like Alex Goot a lot and I love it when he does videos where he does everything: guitar, drums, voice, piano. It shows how talented it is and I aspire to be like him one day. As much as I love his collab covers and original works, I like that he went back to this roots for this cover 🙂
What song(s) have you been listening to on repeat?
Now that I’ve taken a little break from work (that I brought home, yes) and written up some nice positive stuff, I’m feeling a lot more relaxed and ready to be focused and hopefully get into turbo mode 🙂
So yes, I’ll be waiting for your suggestions for which Netflix movie to start with. It’ll be my companion tonight, haha!
Okay! Break over! Back to work!!

I haven’t seen any of those five movies….. 😦
Haha! I haven’t heard of them before either. My boyfriend says he heard Less Than Zero is good so I started that one last night.
Did you two love it??
I was the only one who watched it..haha! I should be writing a review of it soon 😉
