5 of my favourite Youtubers

Mention YouTube to an adult and their likely to not have a clue what you mean apart from "oh those videos".
Mention YouTube to people of my generation and you can make a new friend and have a great conversation.
I could spend hours of my time watching YouTube and it's so easy to go from watching a morning routine to the most randomist video on the web. Thats whats good about YouTube nothing is to extreme and anything you think of has probably been made into a video.

As youtube is so incredibly popular and their a millions of YouTube creators sometimes it hard to find new creators.I have my personal favourites so I thought i'd share them with you so you can enjoy some new awesome people.






Those are a few of my go to favourite YouTubers and I also have a channel so i'd appreciate if you check me out too !

8 of my favourite things to watch on Netflix

I could pretend that I never watch TV and that I spend my time exercising and reading books.However that would be a little bit untrue.We all know secretly that when we say just one more episode we really mean one more series!

I love watching movies and TV series's,as it's a way for you to escape your typical life, and relax.For your mind to focus on something different, whether it be romance or fantasy.

This post is to share with you a few Netflix recommendations :

1. Riverdale / This is new to Netflix with 7 episodes and more being released every/other friday.Riverdale is about four teens and their lives after the death of a fellow student, as they try to find out what's actually happened to Jason.

2.Orphan Black / Is a 4 season series focused on Sarah who starts of with witnessing a stranger commit suicide, however the stranger looks extremely similar to herself.Sarah is actually a clone and the episodes discover a whole new mystery and life for Sarah.

3.Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt / kimmy goes to New York after being held hostage by a cult leader.Its so light hearted and really does have you laughing out loud.

4.The Duff/ About a high schooler who realises she's the designated ugly fat friend in her clique,she asks for help from her neighbour jock friend.The perfect romcom.

5.Haters back off/ A series about Miranda sings and her dream to become a singer.I don't actually watch Miranda sings on YouTube as the content isn't my typical interest,however I really enjoyed watching haters back off, it was extremely funny.

6.Stranger things/About a group of young boys and Wills discovery.A sci fi fantasy sort of series.I can see a lot of genres enjoying this series.

7.I boy/Shards of a cell phone get lodged into a teenagers brain,he discovers a special Power and uses it to get revenge.

8.Radio rebel / When a student has a secret identity,she is a school dj who helps others popular and unpopular.

That's a few of my Netflix's favourites let me know if you'd like to see a part 2!

How do you deal with your mind ?

How do you deal with your mind ?
A feeling you get but you just can't describe
Almost an aching that won't rub out
Why do I feel like this ?
What am I feeling ?
Am I anxious?
Or all of the above ?
Whatever I am
Whoever I am
I don't like this feeling and how it's making me feel
Shake it off they say
Shake what off
It's not a crumb and easy to dispose
It's my mind
My brain
My life
It's me
I am who I am
I don't know why
But it's me for now
I'll work on me until one day soon
I feel better
Am I ill?
No just not me yet
I'll know
When I feel better
I can't wait to feel those feels
When my mind wanders off again
Like it does in dreams and stories
That's the best feeling
If we didn't dream we wouldn't live
But for now I'll be ME.
