Top 3 Songs Whose Lyrics Really Spoke To Me

Hey, guys! I’m back! Today I wanted to share with you guys some songs whose lyrics really spoke to me. Here we go!

1. Epiphany by Jin of BTS

The lyrics of this song are so touching that I almost cried when I first heard it. BTS has made a huge impact on my life. I encourage you all to listen to this song.

2. Perfect to Me by Anne Marie

My favorite line of this song is “I’m okay with not being perfect, ’cause that’s perfect to me.” It reminds me of the quote from Dr. Seuss: “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” This song also talks about being cool with what’s underneath, focusing on body positivity, which I talked about in the last post.

3. The Truth Untold by BTS feat. Steve Aoki

I love this song, not only because it’s calming and soothing, but because of the lyrics. The Truth Untold is based on La Citta di Smeraldo. It’s the story of a man who lived in a castle and kept to himself because he thought himself to be ugly. One day a woman came near his castle and picked his flowers. He was angry at first, but eventually became curious and waited for her. He found out that she was actually selling those flowers for a living. The man fell in love but didn’t want to show himself because he was “too ugly” (you know that I can’t show you me, give you me..) So he decided to plant a flower that didn’t exist on the planet so she could sell it at an expensive price. Eventually he manage to fill his garden with them but the women stopped coming. He then learned that she had died. That part where they sing ‘but I still want you’ is about him regretting not telling her his feelings all because he didn’t love himself first. It fits so well with the ‘Love yourself’ concept.

I hope you guys enjoyed this. I encourage you guys to listen to the songs listed above, because they will make a huge impact on your life, especially BTS’s songs. I love you all, and I will see you in the next post!

Love,

Carissa 😉 ♥

What is body positivity to you?

Hey, guys! So recently, I watched Blogilates’s Youtube video about body positivity. I have been a Blogilates fan ever since 2015, and lately people have been saying bad things about her that made my blood boil. Honestly, people are being so mean about her being “fat,” “anti-body positive,” etc., etc. So I wanted to get straight to the point.

What is body positivity?

Now, I know I’ve posted a post like this before. But I really wanted to dive deeper into this subject, due to how many kids are being bullied at school because of how they look. Especially today, social media is a place where people judge others just by their body and how they look. Never judge a book by its cover, guys! It doesn

To be honest, there is no official definition for body positivity. Everybody has a different body structure, nobody’s perfect and never will be, and all in all, everybody is different. Being overweight myself, I have struggled with my weight (and still am) and have worried about how others will think of me. I always cried myself to sleep at night because I hated on how my body looked and I wanted so desperately to be thin. But as I listened to this mini documentary by Blogilates, ( the link is right here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ncuh7cfF2RI ) I realized I was being negative. Sure, it’s always good to have a goal, but you can’t let people put you down because of your body and how you look. I really love this quote from RM of BTS: Nobody is born ugly; we just live in a judgemental world. This is so very true.

To those who are having weight problems and feel hopeless because of how you look, DON’T BE! You’re not the only one; know that I’m always here and can lend a listening ear. While having weight problems is difficult, don’t hate yourself. You are perfect just the way you are; trust me, I know what it feels like. Remember, everything starts from the inside. When you refocus your energy from negativity to positivity, you’ll see a lot better results. When you wake up in the morning, stand in front of your mirror and look at yourself. Don’t hate what you’re seeing; instead, love it! If you keep on hating your body, you’ll never see good results.

I hope you guys really enjoyed this post and found it useful. I really need your feedback on what other kind of posts I should write. Tell me in the comments below:

what does body positivity mean to you?

A Promise Sealed (Reader x Namjoon) WARNING: VERY FLUFFY

“Honey, I’m home!” you call, closing the door. You reach down and pet Luna, your Persian cat who comes to greet you, purring contently. “Joonie?”

No response.

“Joonie, honey? Where are you?” I begin to get worried, looking around.

“SURPRISE!!!!!” Joonie (Namjoon’s nickname) cries out, jumping out from his hiding place from the kitchen, a wicked grin plastered in his face. Gosh, why does he have to be so frickin’ cute? you think.

You shriek, caught completely by surprise, and fell onto the couch, which was thankfully close by. Namjoon walks up, his dimples showing as he smiled widely. He throws himself on top of you, you squirming and wiggling, trying to get up, but do so in vain as he peppers your face and neck with kisses.

“Aish, Joonie! I just got home from a stressful day, and you’re being so sappy? Whyyy??” you complain cutely, glaring daggers at Namjoon’s face.

Namjoon grins, getting off you. “Sorry, ______,” he apologizes. “I was just so excited. Guess you’re not in a good mood, huh?”

“Nope,” you grump. You head for the stairs, sighing, peeling off your jacket as you go.

“Hey! Where are you going?” Namjoon calls out, panic rising in his voice. “Don’t leave me, ________!” He trots up the stairs after you.

“I’m going to take a relaxing hot bath and then change into clean fresh clothes. Why?” you reply, seeing a smirk cross his face. He can be so weird sometimes, you sigh. “You wanna watch or something?”

“Can I?” Namjoon asks, his eyes begging you.

“Not this time, dear. How about you cook the tteokbokki I taught you how to make? The members are coming over for dinner, by the way,” you answer, giving him a peck on the cheek, making him giggle. Gosh, his giggle is so cute and gorgeous.

“OK!” Namjoon answers brightly, eager to show his new cooking skills to the members. I closed the bathroom door as he bounced down the stairs to the spacious kitchen, singing off-key and rapping all the way.

You chuckle quietly to yourself, turning on the bath’s hot water. You are so lucky to have Namjoon as your boyfriend. Not only is he part of BTS, but he is so kind and funny. Once the bath is entirely full and you’ve dropped a few drops of peppermint oil into the water, you slide into the steamy, hot water, relaxing your shoulders and inhaling the spicy peppermint smell. The peppermint oil always soothed your tense shoulders and mind. As soon as you finish bathing and rinsing,you slip your outfit: denim jeans with a flower blouse and a black lace choker. You then slip on your left finger on the left hand the promise ring Namjoon had gave you when you two had first started dating.

You then skip lightly down the stairs, lured by the delicous smell of tteokbokki. You can also hear the members chatting and laughing away in the living room.

“Hey, ______!” Jimin calls out to you, waving enthusiastically from his spot on the couch. The other members greet you as well, Taehyung coming and hugging you with so much strength you gasp for breath. You’ve hosted many dinners for them and Taehyung is the one that always catches you off guard.

“Tae! She needs space to breathe!” Jin scolds. “And remember, don’t get too touchy,” he reminds Taehyung, laughing at the way his cheeks redden.

“Sor-sorry,” he apologizes quickly.

“It’s fine,” you assure him.

As the members sit down to eat, Namjoon is, of course, sitting next to you, his fingers entwined in yours. You lay your head on his broad shoulder, sighing in complete bliss as he smiles down at you. You love him so much.

Time Skip

You groan, rolling over onto your side. You had slept fitfully throughout the night tossing and turning. You close your eyes, and then they snap open. You look over, and panic. The space, usually occupied with Namjoon, is empty. Wait a minute. Where’s Namjoon?

Annnddd, cliffhanger! Hahahaha, see what I did there! Anyways, I hope you guys really enjoyed that! I’ve been reading a lot of BTS fanfiction lately, so I decided to write one of my own! Hopefully, it wasn’t too short, but I’ll try to update more. Comment down below if you like posts like these! Honestly, I am clueless about what to post these days, so please give me feedback! Thanks, and I love you guys so much! Bye!

What is positive body image?

Hey, guys! As you can see from the post title above, I’m going to be talking about positive body image and why it’s so important now.

Recently, Cassey Ho (aka. Blogilates) asked on Instagram: What is positive body image to you? Honestly, there are so many answers, but I put down:

“Positive body image to me is loving your body no matter how fat or thin you are and not letting people put you down just because of your. body Not everybody’s perfect or the same.” While I haven’t been bullied because I’m overweight and because I’m homeschooled, I know a lot of kids are at school. And if you are somebody who is being bullied because of your body, know that I am always here on WordPress, ready to lend a helping ear if you need it. I know how you feel, because I have been through this stage and have hated my body, that is, until I found Blogilates and BTS. Blogilates is Cassey Ho and she has a Youtube Channel that has workout videos for every single part of your body. Not only that, but she has a positive body image and encourages you to love your body instead of hating it. She says, “When you refocus your energy from negativity to positivity, you’ll see a lot better results-” and listen to this part, “Everything starts from the inside.” If you don’t love yourself, then how can you love others? And that is where BTS comes in. I actually found BTS through KHS, Kurt Hugo Schnieder, (I don’t know how to spell his last name and I’m too lazy to look it up) through a cover of Idol by Sam Tsui and Megan Lee. And as some of you may know, I was absolutely CRAZY about Sam Tsui a few months ago.

Until I found BTS. Now I’m a complete ARMY fan! BTS has influenced my life, as well as many other ARMIES’. They taught me how to love myself, and I recently wrote RM a letter, telling him how much I love them and how their message of loving yourself influenced me, but I haven’t got a reply yet. My mom’s like, “They have thousands of fans; it’s probably going to take a while for it come.” Yeah, I guess she’s right. As long as they get to read it, I’m fine with that. I hope you have come to love yourself and your body, and if you have any questions on how to love yourself, please feel free to ask in the comments below! I love you all so much, and I will see you in the next post! Bye!

Love,

HAPPY LATE BIRTHDAY, OUR MOCHI JIMIN!

Hey, guys! I’m back from the dead again! (hahahahhahaha, jk. I’ll try to post more after this, guys! I’m just really busy with school and stuff) If you are new to my blog, welcome! Beware this post contains severe fangirling over our little mochi, Jimin, whose birthday was actually last week, on the 13th.

As some of you know, I absolutely love BTS!!! I actually got myself a pair of Chimmy socks today! (And I absolutely LOVE them!!!) ARMY knows Jimin has gone through some hard times, especially in 2016, during the WINGS era. During that time, he had severe weight loss, eating only one meal per day. The other members were concerned about him, and they told him to look after himself because they didn’t want him to treat himself like that. Jimin, you are so cute and you have such an angelic voice! I’m listening to The Truth Untold right now, and the vocal line is so good! You guys should check it out; it is soooo beautiful. Jimin is still well and happy today, so I’m so thankful!! Anyways, I love you so much, Jimin, and we ARMY love you no matter what; always remember that!!

Love,

My Recent Top 10 Favorite Pop Songs!

Hey guys! I’m back from the dead! Hehehehe, jk. But honestly, I’m soooo busy with school starting and all! This school year I’m attending two different charter schools, a essays and speeches class, flute class, Pathfinders, and homeschooling in between. UGHHH…… I’M DEAD. I HATE SCHOOOLLLLL……….. Anyhoo, let’s get started with some of my favorite pop songs!

  1. F*ck, I’m Lonely by Lauv and Anne-Marie

I love this song! It’s upbeat and Lauv’s voice is sooo good…. I know, guys, it has the “f word”, but I try to listen to the clean version. I’m also digging Anne-Marie right now. I’m kinda out of my BTS phase, if you remember how CRAZY I was over them. (Don’t worry, ARMY, I still love them; I really do!)

2. 7 Rings by Ariana Grande

I’m listening to it right now, and I can do the rap part, too! And yeah, I know, it has bad words too, but recently I’ve been listening to Ari more, and I think it’s gettin’ into my head…

3. Thank U, Next by Ariana Grande (again!!!)

And of course, you gotta have this hit song from last year. And yes, it has the “f word” again. But honestly, Ari’s voice is sooo gorgeous, I can’t blame Jungkook for being a fan of hers!

4. 2002 by Anne-Marie

Just to let you guys know, I’m really digging into Anne-Marie, Ariana Grande, and Lauv rn. 2002 is a great song, and it’s also popular in Korea! Anne-Marie has got a awesome voice, too!!

5. Ciao Adios by AM

Anne-Marie is definitely one of my favorite pop artists rn. She has a unique voice, and her voice breaks at the most awesome times in this song. The MV is awesome too, and there is some choreography too.

6. Perfect to Me by AM

I KNOWWW. YOU’RE ANNOYED BY HOW MANY ANNE-MARIE SONGS I’M PUTTING DOWN. WELL, YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH IT, ‘CAUSE I LOVE ANNE-MARIE. AND IF YOU DON’T LIKE ANNE-MARIE, THEN GET OUT. Hahaha, just kidding, It’s okay if you don’t like her. I like the line from this song: “I’m okay with not being perfect, ’cause that’s perfect to me.”

7. Mic Drop by BTS

I still love BTS, and I don’t know if this is considered pop or k-pop. I consider it pop, since most of the words are in English. Anyways, I STILL AM AN ARMY AND ALWAYS WILL BE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

8. Friends by Marshmello and Anne-Marie

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know. You’re sick and tired of all of my favorite songs which are mostly Anne-Marie songs. Well, you’ll have to deal with it. HAVEN’T I MADE IT OBVIOUS, HAVEN’T I MADE IT CLEAR?? WANT ME TO SPELL IT UT FOR YOU? F-R-I-E-N-D-S.

9. Wolves by Marshmello and Selena Gomez

“Ah, finally,” you sigh, settling back into your chair. “Something that isn’t Anne-Marie.” Yep, I am also digging Marshmello too, and I am starting to like EDM, which my sister says is normal, ’cause she liked EDM at my age too.

10. Why by Sabrina Carpenter

Sabrina has a very fine voice and I enjoy listening to her other songs, such as “Thumbs,” “Can’t Blame a Girl For Trying,” “Sue Me,” and “Paris.”

All right, that’s it for tonight, as my mom just told me I have to do math and flute. WHY……………………………………………………………………………………… Anyways, I will see you guys in the next post, whenever that’ll be, ’cause now you know my hectic schedule. I love you guys so much, and see you next time!! Byee!!

Love,

Carissa 😉
