Friday Mood

Today is a good day. Friday is always a good day.

On Fridays I’m always listening to music and thinking what I’ll be ordering for dinner. I usually don’t cook on Friday night, specially now, during quarantine, since we cannot go out to eat or hang out with friends, I’ve figured out a way to have a good time at home.

Below is a list of songs that I have saved on a playlist for Fridays night at home and that put me in a good mood.

I have only chosen these 5 because they were under the “most played” on my Spotify. So I guess I listen to them even when is not Friday!

I could keep adding more, but I will do more of these posts in the future for sure.

Happy Friday everyone!

10 things about me

There is always a first time for everything. I have never been keen to sharing a lot about me other than expressing my feelings, really.

There is more to a person than just feelings or hobbies, which is why I decided to make this post about things that make me who I am as a person.

Here they are:

  1. My childhood nickname was Tote or Tete, which you can imagine where the name of my blog came from. It all comes down to a game of words because I could not pronounce my middle name properly when I was a kid. So that’s how my family would call me- Tote.
  2. My star sign is Sagittarius. According to astrology.com “Sagittarius women in love are passionate, energetic, and usually down for pretty much anything.” No need to say more, right?
  3. My favorite color is Purple. It always has been. I remember dressing up my barbies and dolls with purple or fuchsia dresses. I have a purple winter coat and a purple backpack. Sometimes I’ve dreamed about dying my hair purple. Crazy.
  4. My first thought when I wake up in the morning is I need coffee and what am I going to have for breakfast? After making my bed and leaving my room in the morning I go straight to the kitchen, have a glass of water and open the fridge to figure out what to make for breakfast. It honestly is like that everyday. Eggs is always the answer.
  5. My favorite meal/snack are nachos and pizza. I can definitely have nachos every day for lunch or dinner and I would not care. Pizza – I can eat one by myself. I wish I could do it everyday. Might just order one after writing this.
  6. Favorite type of food is breakfast food. It doesn’t matter what time it is I am eating breakfast food. Veggie Omelette, pancakes and Avocado Toast are my go-to options.
  7. My favorite ice cream flavor is either Vanilla or cookies & cream. I don’t have any other ice cream flavors. Even if there’s a thousand more I will always choose those. I know, pretty boring, right?
  8. I’m scared of thunder and snakes. I really am. Whenever there’s thunder I get really anxious and start praying to which ever God is up there. Snakes – I have nightmares with them and whenever that happens I wake up and feel tingles all over my body. THE WORST.
  9. I hate the smell of feet. I really can’t stand it on other people or even on myself.
  10. My favorite movie of all time is Harry Potter, always. All of them. I have seen all of them multiple times and will never get tired of them. I have to admit that I most likely know the dialog to all of or most of them.

Of course there is so much more to me than these 10 facts. But those will just give you an idea.

If you read this, comment with one thing you hate the most.

Uncertainty, Frustration, Tiredness

Those words can just be a summary of my time at home. Don’t get me wrong, I like being at home and enjoy time on my own.

But anxiety has kicked in.

There’s only so many things I can do at home and the things that excited me at the beginning don’t seem to be helping me anymore. It really is a strange feeling.

You see, I love writing. I love taking the words out of my head and make them into paragraphs or stories. However, this is not what is happening anymore. The words are stuck in my head, and it’s heavy. Heavy full of words that are trying to make it into one of these paragraphs.

But you know what the good thing is about all this? Trying to stay positive and to come out stronger than before. I am acknowledging the issue and I am trying to overcome it on my own.

And what is the issue? You ask. Well, the issue is I am not writing. And not because I don’t have the time, because that’s not true, but because I have been procrastinating and to tell you the truth, I have been lazy. And no, it is not an excuse but just the fact that I acknowledge it is a start, don’t you think?

My mind is full of ideas and projects that I want to work on and I just don’t understand why none of them are happening. Maybe that’s where the issue starts? Trying to do multiple things at once and completing none of them? is that why I feel frustrated and tired? It is definitely something to think about.

Today is the day to start something. It is Monday, the beginning of a new month and the perfect time to start. And the only reason why I am writing this is to have it as a backup when I feel down again. I will remember that post I wrote on June 1st talking about new beginnings and this will be my go-to post when I am feeling lazy, tired or with a big head full of words.
