The Weekly Bullet Journal (4.8.19)

By on Apr 8, 2019 in Weekly Journal | 0 comments

Hello, and welcome to another post on the Weekly Bullet Journal! Ah… The weather’s rather odd today, yes? Rainy days are my favorite days. The Earth is constantly replenishing the earth with colorless joy. Speaking of color, the week aesthetic is blue~ This week’s shade of blue stands for healing. It’s fascinating how yellow is seen as happy, and blue is seen as saddening. It takes time to heal and sadness is apart of the process. When the dog bites and when the bee stings, and when you’re feeling sad, what do you do to cope? When I’m feeling sad, I use music to cope with it. This week’s playlist is a collection of songs to maybe help you feel better when you’re sad: April 8th, 2019 Playlist: Epiphany- BTS Jin absolutely killed it on this song, and I feel like a proud mom (even though I’m 13 years younger than him) because he’s so confident in his voice now uwu Truth Untold- Steve Aoki Rain on Me- Joji I don’t love you- Urban Zakapa This song is beautiful, and I love how all of their voices blend perfectly to form this song. When me and my mom don’t get along, I play this song in my room to calm myself down. Promise- Jimin Jimin recently released this song. He really puts his soul in his songs when he’s singing, and the breathy(-ness?) notes makes it more heartfelt in my opinion.So sad, So sad- Varsity This song has “Chasing Dream” (Echosmith) vibes, no?Postcard- Troye Sivan Postcard is just one of those songs you listen to when you miss someone, ya know?Why won’t you love me- 5sos The song I listen to when I look at my crush and wish he would just like me back *cries in Australian*NYC- Blackbear The national anthem for BIG SAD.26- Paramore Hiding- E.views E.views is similar to Joji and Keshi in style, but he’s more upbeat lofi. When I discovered him, I listened to his whole playlist 3 times in a row. I don’t wanna be you- Billie Eilish Billie sings “I don’t wanna be you anymore” to a mirror, and honestly it’s the biggest mood. Make Up- Sam Kim & Crush Honestly, when me and my best friend fall out, I need advice from Crush and Sam Kim. Jocelyn Flores- XXXtentation For a very odd-but understandable- reason, sad songs cheer people up. Maybe it’s because we feel understood.Bohemian Rhapsody- QUEEN (psst, the PATD version is even sadder) Galileo must of wronged Freddie Mercury too. I too am angry at the man who proved that the world doesn’t revolve around me >:(Serendipity- Jimin Cold- Rich BrianGoes to Waste- Keshi Keshi is an Asian-American singer-songwriter, and his music is the chill pill you take everyday. Prescription Pills: Keshi; How many to take per night: whether your smoothing out your eyebrows, or mad at someone. Anytime.Lie- Jimin Every track in the “In Tongues” EP by Joji There’s a lot of controversy on whether or not Joji actually sounds good. My opinion? It sounds good to me, and that’s the tea. It didn’t at first, but I warmed up to it. The lofi style really suits me. It’s chill and I like it~ In last week’s blog, I asked you what your ONE BIG THING was. What was it? Did you complete your goal? Leave a comment below to tell me your progress~ Or, ou may have a different goal. What’s your goal this week? This week’s advice column: Beauty refers to everything attractive about you as yourself. The world’s standards lie to people. The standards include things such as “having big breasts make you gorgeous” or “a small nose is cute”. Everyone is beautiful, truth be told, because regardless of what the “World” says, inner beauty is more important.  What we fail to realize is that even though the first ting people see is the outside, the most important people in your life will have the courage to get to know you for who you are. The people that are currently in your life and closest to you have detached themselves from how they first saw you and have explored further into the garden of you mind. Once they understand to some degree who you are as a person, they see you as more desirable; perfect. People may argue that some people are not beautiful on the inside. As I stated, however, anyone can be beautiful. It is up to the person to show these characteristics of inner beauty. If you know someone who chooses not to, try to convince or inspire them to want to grow inside; maybe it’s time to put the make-up down and let our flower bloom without suffocating underneath greaser. Of course, there is nothing wrong with wanting to look beautiful, but I believe it’s time we check on our relationships with others. Ask yourself: do they love for you for who you are? Mayhaps, it’s also time to reflect on the inside and check how much we love ourselves for us.  Let’s love ourselves. . . This week’s story is based off my experience this year in the 8th grade. Enjoy~ A Friend in February, Forgotten in April Written by Makeba Waddy It had played with my mind many times. The belief that true love possibly could exist is a rather strange notion. My best friends have mentioned their “true...

The Weekly Bullet Journal (4.1.19)

Hello, and welcome to the Weekly Bullet Journal! At the start of each week, there will be a post containing a little bit of everything you need to begin the week. This week’s aesthetic is yellow. This week’s shade of yellow stands for energy and optimism; try to be optimistic and energetic about anything (and everything) you are looking forwards to and/or doing! Are you searching for good music? Hungry for new music? Well, look no further! WITH OUR NEW INVENTION- HAH! Just kidding. It’s because I have a playlist for every week~ April 1st, 2019 Playlist: Bambi- Hippo Campus I absolutely love this song~ They are definitely one of the more attractive western bands I listen to 😉 just a heads up. 23- Chase Atlantic I’m nowhere near 20, but this song is so nostalgic for some weird reason. Jello- Prettymuch Just One Day- BTS This was one of the first songs I’ve ever listened to by them. I fell in love instantly.She looks so perfect- 5sosLosin’ You- Boy Pablo I found this chill band about a few weeks ago. Watch- Billie EilishTeenager- Got7 Friendzone- UMI History- Rich Brian Every song from Rich Brian is pure fire, and history is one of them.Can’t get over you- Joji Seventeen- Troye Sivan Greek God- Conan Gray Conan Gray is one of my favorite artist. He’s becoming quite the talk these days 😉Oasis- Crush Primadonna- Marina and the Diamonds Glow Like Dat- Rich Brian Pool- WOODZ Bone and Tissue- Gallant Playdate- Melanie Martinez No fun- Joji The Questions of the week: What is the ONE BIG THING I need to focus on this week? You may be asking why there is a question of the week. It is important to ask yourself questions like these in the week so you may set your goal straight. Without a goal, you are disorganized and all over the place in what you want to do! This week’s advice column: “I’m walking into 2019 wearing Gucci Slides with no socks and friends that are faker than my nails. Raise your courser if you too suffer with “stuck-on-snakes” syndrome. Exactly. If you didn’t raise your courser, you’re no fun. If you did, you’re honest and I love that. If you didn’t raise your courser because you “have never had fake friends”, you’re either a psychologist or blind.  Disclaimer: These methods ACTUALLY work. First, we must recognize this creature. The creature that blends in with the crowd so well, we may have made the mistake of taking them to our birthday party. The creature can be physically identified as having: A big mouth Fake nails longer than their toes Wearing socks with flip-flops Bad fashion sense (but always says something about yours because their salty as the buildup between their toes) Having all 4 and then some After identifying what may be the creature, test it. Start by asking how you look. That day you know you ooze style when you come in, ask them how they think you look. If they answer negatively and are insistent you look bad, you know you have your crusty, dusty monster. Lastly, we must initiate “operation do not disturb”. IGNORE THEM AT ALL COSTS. Being a social butterfly myself, I would find this hard. But, recently, I found a way. Think of them as invisible. Don’t even recognize their presence. Pretend you have better things to do- and you do because I know all my readers are BOOKED AND BUSY. Amen! Warning: This can tick them off, especially if you’re talkative. It shows you genuinely don’t care about whatever they have to say. By using this method, you can easily unfriend them and get back to the more important things. Don’t let the fakies book a space in your mind when you have better things to do than think about them. They are irrelevant, and don’t you forget it! Hey, guess what? You learned something! Congrats, sis~ If you have an issue you personally want me to give advice on, message me on Instagram @makebashangwe or email me at theiamprincesscollection@gmail.com, and I’ll be sure to get back with you~ Story Time! This week’s story: The First Day Written by Makeba Shangwe Today, my first day attending Wildwood Middle School, was exciting. The possibility of seeing all the people who I met in elementary school about 3 years ago was high, and the possibility of me having zero friends the first week was also high.  I plastered a nervous smile on my face as I walked into “Ms. Walker’s Band Class.” Everyone turned to look at me.  I noticed a good 4 people: Kingston, Makayla, Michael, and Joy.  Kingston (I secretly called him “King Tons” because I was salty) was my ex-short-term-crush. Yes, a mouthful, I know. He was smart, but he acted as stupid as he could with his friends. He was definitely better looking now that he had matured physically. He watched me shuffle nervously to my seat over at the percussion section.   At the end of class, he greeted me. “Hey, Niqo.”  “Why are you talking to me? Boys don’t talk to me.”  My bird heart started beating against my ribs. I smiled, “H-Hey.  Everyone wanted to walk the new girl to her classes. Everyone wanted to talk to the new girl about where she’s from. But, no one wanted to be friends with the new girl. No one except Natasha.   Natasha was prettier than me. She...
