Latest YouTube Videos

Recently I made a whole bunch of new YouTube videos, including two new animations, one new game play, and a new vlog. Check them out and don’t forget to subscribe! xx

In the video above, I talk about how people are stealing my videos. I said it once and I’m going to say it again: PLEASE DO NOT STEAL MEDIA THAT DOES NOT BELONG TO YOU. That includes fan art, fan fiction, fan games, videos, game plays, SFMs, pictures, and other forms of media. These are things that people work hard at to enjoy with the rest of the community. It’s not cool to steal from other people. Make your own work.

7 Things I Learned From Being A Kid

fasdgfs

We’ve all learned a couple of things from being a kid and we have all had some positive and some negative childhood experiences. As a kid, I was extremely shy and very awkward. Which is like the complete opposite for me now, seeing as I am outgoing and talkative. But nonetheless, here are the seven things that I learned from being a kid.

You’ll never outgrow your favourite toys.

I still wish I had my entire Hamtaro play set, all four of my Tamagotchis, my Pixel Chix set, my Hamtaro plushies, and my My Scene dolls. Some days I just look on eBay and dream of buying them all back. On a more positive note, I still sleep with Blankey every night. It’s a Winnie the Pooh blanket that was bought a week before I was born for me, and my boyfriend and I love it. As a kid I’d tell my parents, “When I become a bratty teenager and want to throw it away, make sure you hold onto it, okay?” Well thank God I never went through that stage.

Christmas is the absolute best time of year.

Even though Christmas is great as an adult, it just doesn’t feel as magical as it did when you were a kid. I learned that being a kid is great because you believe in magic, you are innocent and carefree and just focus on having fun. Cookies, presents, trees, snowmen, snow angels, Santa, reindeer, Christmas movies, and the scent of pine all bring back nostalgia from a person’s childhood. 

Adults are not always right.

When you’re a kid, adults seem so superior. They are older, can tell you what to do, and can boss you around. As a kid you think adults are perfect and never make any mistakes. But as a matter of fact that is indeed very far fetched from the truth. Adults are not always right, and as we grow up, we learn that.

It’s okay to be weird.

Let’s get one thing straight: people are judgemental assholes, even as kids. If you’re not alike everyone else and you do your own thing and have different interests, you will be an outsider, teased, called weird, and even bullied. But as we grow older, we tune out what everyone else is saying because we are happy for who we are and what we like. We no longer need to listen to others, we’ve grown and learned that it doesn’t matter what anyone else has to say. If we’re happy, then that’s all that matters. Besides, being weird is better than being just like everyone else.

You need to have confidence in life.

Confidence is key. Once you have confidence, you can be happy anywhere you go. Having confidence in life is crucial. If you never think you’re good at anything or have a good ability, then where will you go? Doubting yourself is the worst thing you can do for low self esteem. Be positive, be confident, and good things will come your way.

Never take anything for granted.

If something (or someone) good is happening in your life, never take it for granted and assume it will always be there. Smile, be happy, and love it. 

Just breathe because you’ll make it one day.

This last one is more like a message to myself. Like previously said, I was a really weird kid. As I grew older, I didn’t have many friends, I had a weird style, I didn’t act like everyone else because I matured way quicker than the other kids, I had different interests, and I had a different personality. Therefore, in grade school I was bullied and teased and harassed, even by the teachers. There was probably two teachers that actually showed me respect at that school. No one ever believed in me, I was just that ugly weird girl in the corner who has one friend, wears Hannah Montana tattoos in her face, hides in the bathroom during recess and hides in the locker room during gym class. Yeah, I didn’t have much confidence then. But bam, I was thirteen and I wrote and self published my first novel which made kids in my class glow with envy. Then I wrote, directed, and starred in a Christmas play that the whole school and their parents came to see. Then I graduated and more years passed. I fixed my eyebrows and my hair, I wore make-up, I had a better style, but more importantly, I found myself and grew confidence. (I was kinda teased in high school too, but I brought it onto myself by being a bitch. Oh well, those people deserved it.) Now I run a blog, have an amazing older boyfriend, run a YouTube channel and actually have a fan base, and I’m trying to get my books in the stores. So see, kiddies, anything is possible. Believe in yourself to be a better person. Just remember to be kind to others even when it’s hard, and love yourself!

See you soon,

Learning About Life

tumblr_nfiapp36Ka1r02k5vo1_500

Love. That’s probably the number one thing about life. It’s the number one purpose, the number one reason, the number one everything. Not love as just in two people (although yes, it does count) but love for anything at all. Love for an item, love for a person, love for a place, or love for your life. And because of love, it drives us to do something that we’re passionate about. Whatever your drive is, your goal, destination, the number one life lesson is to never give up.

I’m young, but I still am able to preach this. I’ve lived enough now to know myself, to know others, and to (partially) know the world. Never let small minds say your dreams are too big. Never let someone tell you who or what to love. Just be yourself. 

In life, you only get one body, one soul. And that’s you. Always protect yourself. Take care of yourself. Love yourself. Never be fake and do what you love to do no matter what anyone else says. Trust your heart, take chances, but also be wise and careful.

Dream so big that it scares you and don’t be afraid to fall flat on your face. If you believe in yourself, you’ll never give up, and the world will never give up on you, either. In one sentence? The number one lesson in life is to be yourself, to be a nice human, to not let others ever bring you down, and to love.

That’s what I’ve learned thus far about this crazy world.

11 Tips For Success And Confidence

bottle-of-dreams

If you’re reading this right now, then I want it to be no secret that you have a talent, hidden or not, and you have all of the potential in the world to gain success and confidence. We all (hopefully) have major goals that we want to accomplish in life. The problem? Less than 50% get there. Is it because they simply couldn’t? Is it because they weren’t good enough? No and no. It’s because if things fail for a while or it seems hopeless, then people lose hope. They give up. But you can’t. Because you will make it one day.

11 TIPS FOR SUCCESS AND CONFIDENCE 

  1. If it feels wrong, don’t do it. 
  2. Say exactly what you mean and never less.
  3. Don’t be a people pleaser. In life, it’s okay to be a little selfish. You don’t owe anyone anything.
  4. Trust your instincts. They could bring you to your fate.
  5. Never speak bad about yourself. Throw away the idea of being your worst critic. Instead, be your biggest fan.
  6. Don’t be afraid to say no.
  7. Don’t be afraid to say yes.
  8. Be kind to yourself.
  9. Let go of what you can’t control. 
  10. Stay away from drama and negativity. You don’t need it. Be positive.
  11. Love. Love yourself, love others, love things, love life.
