Songs That Mean Something

I listen to a lot of music. Some I love, some I like and some not so much but not many songs actually mean something to me. Here are some songs that have a special meaning to me.

What A Wonderful Word by Katie Melua and Eva Cassidy
This song means so much to me. My great grandmother passed away late last year and from the day she passed till the day of her funeral, I had two songs on repeat. One of the songs was this particular version of What A Wonderful World. I listened to this song non stop from Friday to Wednesday and on the day of her funeral this song was played. I took it as a sign from her and ever since then it's been a song close to my heart.

Dixie Chicks
I've listened to the Dixie Chicks for as longs as I can remember. They're one of my favourite girl bands and I can't remember I time when I didn't listen to their music. My nan always tells me about how we use to sing Hello Mr. Heartache together and to this day we still do. Some of my favourite memories are dancing around with my mum, aunties, cousins and my nans, singing Goodbye Earl.

These few songs have great meaning and I totally recommend you have a listen to them because they are truly amazing.

Favourite Series

I never leave home without a book. No matter where I go there will always be a book near me, whether it's a hard copy or on my kindle.

I thought I would share with you some of my favourite series with you all. So here goes…

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

This is probably one of the best series I've ever read. These books are YA Fantasy and are filled with vampires and romance. Vampire Academy is based around two teen girls who attend St. Vladimir's, a school for vampires. There are three types of vampires. Dhampir's (half human, half vampire), the royal vampires formally known as Moroi and then there are the evil vampires, Strigoi. 

Rose is a Dhampir and her best friend, Lissa is a Moroi Princess. The series follows the two girls as they navigate their way through the danger of their lives and confront the attraction of their forbidden romances.

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

Bloodlines is the connective series of Vampire Academy. This series follows the story of Sydney, a young alchemist whose job is to clean up the vampires mess but is soon sent undercover to help protect the life of a certain Moroi princess, Jill Dragomir. Whilst she's undercover, she goes against all her training and instincts and starts to become friends with the Moroi and Dhampir and soon she falls for a certain Moroi boy…

Firebird Trilogy by Claudia Gray

This trilogy follows Marguerite and Theo who are jumping through dimensions trying to find Paul, her dad's killer. In each dimension, Marguerite has to find that dimensions Paul and see if her Paul is currently inheriting his body. She meets many versions of him and herself and eventually starts to question what really happened to her dad and starts to question her own hearts desire.

Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

I'm pretty sure everybody has heard of Pretty Little Liars as it is a hit TV show. I recently got the series as a birthday present from my Dad and Stepmum and was so excited to start reading them as it's one of my favourite shows. I was a bit weary as I don't usually like watching movies when they've stemmed off books but majority of the books were similar to the show.

If you don't know what PLL is about then let me tell you. The story follows a group of friends who start getting creepy messages from 'A' exactly four years after their friend Alison was murdered. The girls try to uncover the identity of 'A' but it's not as easy as they first thought it would be. If you love romance and mysteries then I suggest to you read this series.

 

Those are just some of my favourite series and I can assure you I have plenty more. I totally recommend you read them as they are all utterly amazing. If you have read any of them then let me know what you think about them and feel free to leave any book suggestions.

‘Broken’ Family

Unless you come from a 'broken' family yourself, you have absolutely no idea what it's like. 

I can't remember a time when my parents were together as I was very little when they split. 

The only memories I have of my parents together is when I'd be in my younger brothers room trying to distract him whilst my parents fought and that one memory I have, they're fighting about me. Because Dad allowed me to get my ears pierced when my mum said that I couldn't have them done. I was 5.

Last October I was very nervous to go to Bali as this would be the first time my Mum and Dad would be in the same place but as it turns out I had nothing to worry about. Everything was better than I had expected. 

Whenever I've talked to someone about having two homes, majority of their replies are "I understand." But the thing is, you don't understand because it hasn't happened to you! 

People say things like that to try and make you feel better but in this particular situation it doesn't work because if your own parents aren't split or divorced you don't know what it's like to be stuck in the middle of it all. 

A lot of my family members have said things to me like "It was a very hard time for your mother." Yeah, well what about us kids? Did you happen to forget about us aswell? We had to watch it all happen and as young kids it's hard to understand what's actually happening. 

I feel like because being the eldest, I've had to grow up faster as I felt I needed to look after my baby brother and now I often get told that I'm 'mothering' him. But because I was the one who always tried to hide the fighting from him and had to lay in bed with him until he fell asleep whist our Mum and Dad were at parenting meetings, I feel the responsibility to look after him. 

I think everyone's happier now though. My mum is a single parent and my dad married his partner and now has two daughters with her. There are those occasional moments that I wonder what it would be like if my Mum and Dad stayed together but in reality that'll never happen and this is the way it's going to be. 

I apologise as this was a bit of a heavy subject.

Music

I do not know how I could live without music. Music is basically my whole life. I don't think I've ever gone a whole day without music and I don't think I'll ever be able to.

I think music is sort of an escape for me. I can put my headphones on and just listen to a couple of my favourite songs and forget the days worries. I can't remember when music became such a big element in my life, it's just always has been.

I've decided to share a couple of my all time favourite songs with you all. So here goes…

  1. Fast Car – Tracey Chapman
  2. Hello Mr Heartache - Dixie Chicks
  3. Godspeed – Dixie Chicks
  4. Can't Help Falling In Love – Haley Reinhart (Cover)
  5. What A Wonderful World – Katie Melua and Eva Cassidy (Cover)
  6. Buffalo Soldier – Bob Marley
  7. Never Grow Up – Taylor Swift
  8. Dear Mr President – P!nk
  9. Stickwitu – The Pussycat Dolls
  10. Stand By Me – Ben E. King

I have plenty more but this is all I can think of at this moment. I hope you like them.

Friends?

I've decided that the term 'best friend' is overrated. I've had a few best friends over the years. Some I've parted with because I've had to move schools, I stopped communicating with others because they started doing drugs and I didn't want to be apart of that environment and others thought I wasn't high enough up their social ladder to hang out with. But just recently I've lost the one person I thought would always be there for me.

This person promised he would always be there for me. But where is he now? He doesn't want to be my friend. He actually told me to never speak to him again and he wants nothing to do with me. That actually broke my heart a little bit. Yeah, we've fought before. Every great friendship has a couple of fights but this time it was different. He wanted to throw our friendship away for absolutely no reason. He believes that we 'fought too much' and that this is the way it has to be. If he truly wanted to be friends then he would've sorted all that out with me. Maybe we just weren't meant to be friends. Maybe, just maybe this was a friendship that was never supposed to happen and it only did because of mutual friends. But I guess we'll never find out.

It makes everything really awkward now because he just started dating one of my friends so whenever I'm with her and he shows up it goes into this really awkward silence so half the time I just remove myself from the situation. It's kind of upsetting really.

Thanks for letting me have a little rant.

New Blogger

Bula World!

I've decided to start this blog. I've made this decision because I'm constantly keeping things in that I'm too scared to say aloud. One day everything I have inside me is going to explode so instead of keeping everything hidden I'm going to slowly dribble it out onto paper… or in this case the internet.

This whole blog will be completely anonymus, not once will you know my true identity therefore I'll be going by the name 'Rarii Rose' and if I mention people in my life then they will be used under different names keeping the anonymus theme. Throughout this blog I hope that by sharing my stories it will help other people or maybe you can even help me.
I will try to post at least once a week and I would really enjoy feedback on my blogs to see how I can improve myself and my writing. I want this to be a safe place where people feel comfortable enough to express themselves so please feel free to do so.
If you don't feel comfortable saying things aloud or just want someone to talk to, you can always contact me via my email.
