Prioritization

Hey guys!
It's not super late right now, which is kind of surprising because I'm really exhausted! But, I wanted to get this post written for you because prioritization is something that I've been pondering a lot recently. 

The sad fact of life is that there is never enough hours in a day for us to accomplish what we want to. That's where prioritization comes in. We put what we value most on the top of our to-do list, and leave whatever remains until the next day. Is this system perfect? Not quite, but it's the best that we can do. Lately, I've been trying to think about what I prioritize and I've been trying to prioritize based on what is important to me rather than what society or others tell me to prioritize. 

For me, the things that I put on the top of the list are the things that make me happy. That's blogging and making videos. Exercising, eating, spending time with family and friends, sleeping. Some of these things are actually important (like exercising for my health), but other things are small things that I just really like. Before, I would put schoolwork and homework really high on my list and I would stay up late trying to finish it all, but now I really try to evaluate everything and make decisions based on what I want. For example, if I'm really tired and I have a bit of homework left, I'll go to sleep rather than staying up (which is something that I wouldn't have done a few months ago). 

Societal pressures and the internal pressures we feel to do our best sometimes negatively impact the quality of our lives, so I want to challenge you to evaluate your life. Figure out what you truly want to place on the top of your list and compare that to your current list right now, and make changes! I understand that it's hard to feel like you're disappointing others or not trying hard enough, but if you spend time doing things that you personally value, you will feel so much better every single day. Let me know your thoughts on this post in the comments below and let me know what you guys put on the top of your list!

PORTLAND!

Hey everyone!
I was in Portland, Oregon last weekend, and I meant to film a lot so I could do a vlog! I didn't. I got a tinyyyy bit of footage and a few pictures, however, so I used them in this video! Hope you enjoy it!



Let me know in the comments if you've ever been to Portland and what I should do if I go back there! Also, don't forget to subscribe to this channel and give this video a thumbs up if you liked this video!

Where Have I Been?

Hey guys!
I have a video for you today! I know what you're thinking... "a video? what!?!" because it's been over two months since my last video on my vlog channel, which is absolutely crazy and way too long! So if you want to know what I've been up to lately, watch this video!



So, if you like this video, please give it a thumbs up! And don't forget to check out my beauty youtube channel because I post a lot more frequently on that channel and I have a ton of really awesome videos up! I do have a tinyyyy bit of footage for a Portland vlog, but I really don't have enough for a full video (maybe 2 minutes worth of footage at most), so maybe I'll do a travel video on my main channel and stick the footage at the end? Or I could do a video of me talking about my trip and overlay some of the footage on that... Let me know if you have thoughts on how I should do it in the comments!

Music Favorites: January 2015

Hey everyone!
I thought that I'd change the titles of my music favorites to represent the month that I'm loving them! That way, you won't get confused by the tons of "music favorites" posts! Okay, so these are my favorites for January 2015!

Prayer in C - Robin Schulz Remix
Love this song so much! I've probably listened to it around 20 times already today, and I don't plan on stopping! This version is so awesome, and I love it more than the original!



Uptown Funk - Ronson and Bruno Mars
This song has actually grown on me quite a bit. When it was first played, I wasn't a huge fan, but I think that it's super catchy and I'm loving it!



Milky Chance - Flashed Junk Mind
Love Milky Chance! This song is really chill and is something that just relaxes me! Definitely listen to this if you haven't heard it already!



Alesso ft. Tove Lo - Heros
I love Tove Lo! I think her voice is so crazy amazing and this song is another really catchy tune!



So those are a few of the songs I've been loving during January! Let me know what songs you've been loving in the comments below, and check out some of my links too!
