January favorites: Crime, Love and Languages!

Sunday, February 25, 2018 4 Comments A+ a-

Hello sweets!

So in this blog post I'll be talking about 5 of my favorites this month, some bonus items might be included 😉 . I plan for this to be a new series on the blog, so each month or so I'll try to do the same. I'm going to see how it works out and whether this is going to be a monthly thing or not.

So for this month, here are my absolute favorites:
  1. Him & I by G-Eazy Feat. Halsey (category: music)
    My current obsession. I can't go a day without listening to it or at the very least sing it while working.
    It has a big place in my heart. A sincere lyrics, amazing music and a genuine #CoupleGoals couple. I loved Halsey's voice the moment I heard her voice on The Chainsmokers' "Closer", and G-Eazy's when I listened to "You Don't Own Me" featuring Grace. Imagine my absolute delight when I realized they are actually a couple, a dream come true 💜 .
  2. Stranger Things (category: TV Shows)
    A new discovery for me. I discovered it through Twitter, and decided to give a try. This is genuinely one of my favorite shows now. It made me fall back in love with old times and especially old music and the simplicity of life. The sci-fi aspect to it is seriously impressive. I can't wait for season three 😍.
  3. LingoDeer (category: Android/iPhone apps)
    My latest favorite language learning app. I discovered through one of my favorite Japanese vloggers (Sharmander) and I've been using it ever since. This app helps you learn Korean, Japanese and Chinese. Amazing and simple UI, very intuitive and very helpful. It is split into many categories and has voice training as well as many other functionalities. Very useful if you're trying to learn any if the above languages or you want to brush up on them a bit.
  4. Forest rain (category: Calm melodies)
    Whenever I'm feeling an anxiety attack, feel depressed, have stress or just have insomnia, I search for forest rain sounds on YouTube or use a dedicated app (Rain Sounds or Calm). Rain is my absolute favorite thing ever.
  5. Bonnie and Clyde (category: Movies)
    This has been on my to watch list for as long as I can remember. I don't watch old movies, I never did. I know their story but from a completely different point of view. I heard songs written about them and read books based off of them. It was about time that I watch the movie. I was so excited for it and didn't know what to expect at all. I love crime movies, I don't like romance at all and I don't know a thing about the actual story. I was hooked and had goosebumps, not joking, within the first 30 minutes. I loved it, it was so meaningful, to me at least and a great experience to watch an old, well made movie. I'm not a big fan of a little detail but that was fine and it was easy to get over it. One hell of a story and an amazing movie.
  6. Bonus entry: Star Music Tag Editor (category: Android apps)
    If you're a music lover and you often receive music files from your friends with wrong or corrupted metadata, then this app is for you. This app is a music life saver, sometimes I get music online but it comes with wrong or corrupted music info, and being the OCD person I am, I can't have it show up in my music library with no proper title/album title/singer…etc. So, I use this app to edit the info on the go. It's so simple to use and to update the info of any song/album. Very useful.
That's it for this month! I hope you enjoyed this little blog post, I'm considering, in the upcoming months, to add maybe screenshots or/and images of the things in the list. I'm still experimenting with this, I want it to have my own signature and vibe and energy.

Please let me know in the comments, or via Twitter or Instagram, what you think, and how I might make this better, or any suggestions for the content you want to see (this series or for future posts). I have few blog ideas, one of which might be up on the blog before the end of February.

Thank you for reading as always and for the continuous support and suggestions 😊!

Nice Post Rand. I'm not into music much (sounds weird, but yeah) but I really like You & I too in a very weird way, it's catchy and it's not even my kind of music. As for Stranger Things, OMg I'm hooked, can't wait for season three too.
Keep up them blog posts coming :)

Thank you hbiba! 😊💜
Naah that's not weird at all, actually :D I'm not into most things that people consider "normal" that I realized that we are, each, truly unique 😊.
Exactly! It has something catchy about it, the first time I heard the music I got goosebumps, I'm not even kidding xD
Thank you so much for the comment and for taking time to read this, it's such an honor 😊💜.
