Video of the week #31 - Lorde - Royals

Hey all! How's it going?
Yeah, I'm so busy I didn't do a Thursday OR Saturday post -_- Don't be mad, I'm working, it's beneficial ...
Yeah anyway

So I love this song! Lorde! I have to listen to her whole album, because I love this one song
Pure Heroine was released last month, actually

Royals is a minimalist and art pop song on her debut album
And I love this! So I thought I should post about this today
And if you've been keeping up with my Tumblr, you may have seen the odd one or two pics I reblogged of her
She's awesome, and also really influential
She's only 17 and she's making amazing music

And on that note, here's her song!

Hope you loved it as much as I did! See you all later!

Video Of The Week #30 - Paramore - Daydreaming

Hey all!
Ok, I know what you're thinking
"Why did you leave us without any material this week we suffered without youuuuuu"
Kidding! But you probably did wonder why I disappeared this week

I had to take a gap week
I know I've been saying I've been messing about on Candy Crush and all that jazz but I haven't even got time for that anymore, let alone much other things that would be classed as "fun"

So I'm sorry I went on a mini hiatus, but GCSE year is killing me (and for all you non British fellows who don't know what those are, they're exams we prepare for over the next two years fml)

On with the video
Ok so you know I love Paramore, I was so overjoyed when I found out they released another music video for a track on their latest album, Paramore
This track is called Daydreaming and it's about two friends who travel to London to see Paramore in concert
See it for yourself!
It's different from their older material but I love it all the same ♥♥♥

Have a great week!

Getting through High School: The Procrastination Problem - Candy Crush

Hey everyone!
Alright, a Saturday post at last whoop!
I have been procrastinating a lot since September
Which has inspired me to tell you all about it in a series of posts, The Procrastination Problem
Here we go..

So I'm in a predicament
I'm pretty sure you've heard of Candy Crush, played it, all that jazz
But if you haven't Candy Crush is basically an app you can get on your Apple or Android
(If you're still with a phone from the stone age, sucks to be you!)
And a trailer to explain it all because I'm too lazy to do that myself
Yes, it may look all sweet and innocent but..
I'm literally addicted to this game.
This game has stopped me from doing much, much more important things
Like homework for example
Apparently that stuff is important
Ew, I get so much of that stuff these days.

I'm on like, level 50 right now and I very nearly completed the level, I just needed one more move..
But no. The game hates me.
And I still have to finish that essay
Yay procrastination! (y)

You have no idea how much time I spend playing this game and draining my phone battery everyday
Oh the horror!

And that's about all for this post
Now I'm gonna go continue my saga 'cause I got full lives! Do my homework, obviously
If you have a procrastination problem, say so in the comments
And we can all complain about not bothering with homework together

Throwback Thursday - Dumb Ways To Die Video

Alright! As I said on Monday, I'm now doing Thursdays again
So I thought Thursdays could be a mixture of all sorts if things
Movies and whatnot
This week is a throwback, I like telling people all my favourite memories (both successful and disastrous) and I thought it wouldn't hurt to share them with you every once in a while

And so it begins

About a year ago I found Dumb Ways To Die on YouTube, some hilarious viral video
And I loved it, so one day in my music class, I went on the iMac and watched it on YouTube
Which of course got the whole class's attention and everyone huddled around my Mac instead of doing their music compositions on theirs

Well you know how YouTube has the list of suggested videos on the side next to the one you're watching?
Well while we were watching Dumb Ways to Die, someone said to me
"Hey Sara! Click on that video!"
And someone else got my mouse and clicked on the video

Needless to say, a cartoon video called Willy Bum Bum probably wasn't the best thing to click on
That was by far the most graphical cartoon ever, really
It was so cringe!
And then we all screamed and closed Safari
But hey, I wasn't the one that clicked on Willy Bum Bum, wasn't my fault O:-)  >.<

So that's about it! I hope you found our cringing amusing and I'll post again soon!
By soon, I mean Saturday (maybe) and definitely Monday

Video of the week #29 - Sleeping With Sirens - Roger Rabbit

Hello hello! How's it going everyone?
So I was venturing through YouTube and Tumblr all last week because it was my holiday
I call it my Hobo Holiday because I did nothing but eat, sleep and scroll on the laptop
They see me scrollin'!
I did go out though, went cinema, shopping, all that

I'm not a vampire -_-

So anyway, I was listening to this Sleeping With Sirens song and I quite liked, so I decided to make it the video of the week

Just because, ok?
Here it is, enjoy my friends
It's so wonderful, isn't it? =D
It's always cool to try new genres because it's great to listen to more artists
So if you don't listen to this sort of music, well there you go! I bet you liked it, hm?

Have a great week!
Sara xx

PS - I'm going to make posts on Thursdays and Saturdays as well as Mondays now, I'm trying to regulate and make more than just one post per week
Or at least try, I'm sorry if I can't always, piles of homework await :'(
