Currently Watching, Reading, Listening!
What’s going on Jreamers? I came here to share with you all what I am currently watching, reading, and listening to for the summer! This summer has been great for entertainment all around. At least for me and I am ecstatic to share with you what has my attention and why! So let’s jump right in and get started!
In my currently watching, reading, listening list, Euphoria is at the top. I actually just finished this series up and I thought it was PHENOMENAL! Zendaya plays 17 year Rue. She is a struggling recovering drug addict who is fresh out of rehab after an overdose. She immediately begins using again and then meets Jules who she is completely enamored with. Though Rue is the central character, we are introduced to a whole host of characters who struggle with their own issues. The events and absolute shenanigans that go on in this show make me wonder what kind of normal ass High School I went to. I mean people had struggles, but I do not remember this level of conflict and strife.
The story is completely entrancing and immediately draws you into these people’s lives. Overall I really enjoyed this show. It is NOT for everyone, but I personally thought it was great and am anxiously awaiting the second season. Also, they just need to go on and run Zendaya her Emmy for her role as Rue. She SLAYED it!
This show is a little newer and I just started it. So far there have only been three episodes but I was all in shortly into episode one. Pennyworth follows a young Alfred Pennyworth, most famously known and the mysterious butler of Bruce Wayne aka Batman. Alfred has recently been released from the Army and starts up a security firm. Though he keeps falling into security jobs that aren’t necessarily ideal, he is quite skilled in his new profession. I just love how unassuming and clever this character is and am looking forward to the rest of the series. If you’re into a bit of mystery and some kickassery I’d suggest giving this one a go.
I Will Teach You to be Rich
After falling into a few videos on YouTube about people’s books that helped to change their lives I decided to grab this one. I Will Teach You to be Rich by Ramit Sethi was suggested multiple times and one YouTuber I watched even interviewed the author of the book. It is not a get rich quick kind of book. But the author lays out a six-week plan to give you the foundation to get your financial life in order. He doesn’t believe in cutting costs for the things you love but instead gives advice on how to make your money and credit cards work for you instead of against you.
The Six Week Plan:
For Week One: Optimize your credit cards, learn exactly what to say to get overdraft fees waived, and rack up rewards. And Week Two: Set up no-fee, high-interest bank accounts that won’t gouge you. On to Week Three: Open a Roth IRA or a 401(k). Then on Week Four: Learn how to save hundreds of dollars a month and still have enough to buy what you love. For Week Five: Automate your accounts so they work together. And finally Week Six: See how investing is the single most important way to get rich-and create a portfolio of your own.
I’ve just begun this book but I’m looking forward to employing some of the advice to put me in a better financial position now as well as for my future!
The Law and the Promise
I am a huge fan of the wisdom of Neville Goddard and I am constantly re-reading his works. His books and lectures help me to keep my mind focused. I particularly love The Law and the Promise because it’s a book full of stories of how ordinary everyday people put the law into practice and got exactly what they imagined. If you are unfamiliar with Neville and his work, he is an old school mystic who gained notoriety in the 50s and 60s for teaching people how to use their imagination to make their dreams come true.
Know that we are always creating every second of our day. Neville teaches us to consciously create the things we want rather than worry about a problem and create it instead of what we truly want.
“Worry is a misuse of the imagination.” – Dan Zadra
It’s all about the connection between our thoughts and feelings. I have put the law into practice with great results and am astounded every time. So I go back to this book often for guidance and inspiration because I am determined to step into the life I want.
No.6 Collaborations Album by Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran’s No. 6 Collaborations Album is the collaboration album I never knew I needed! Ed does it again and I am in love with his music and this album. He has a very eclectic mix of artists featured on this new CD and there isn’t one track that I do not like. However, I absolutely have my favorites. I think I feel a lot like Ed as he expresses his feelings of isolation and social awkwardness in tracks like Beautiful People with Khalid
“Surrounded but still alone…”
and I Don’t Care with Justin Beiber.
“Don’t think I fit in at this party…”
And I swear Antisocial with Travis Scott was written about me. I had to be the muse for that track considering these lyrics,
“I’ve been lost out inner space…” because this is me all day long.
Besides the tracks I can relate to there is just some beautiful music on this album. Best Part of Me featuring Yebba is so simple and sweet and Cross Me with Chance the Rapper is so upbeat and fun. The lyrics in that one had me cracking up. I could go on and on about this cd, but I’ll end it by saying my absolute favorite track on the album is Put it all on Me Featuring Ella Mai. What an incredible song. The honesty and vulnerability of the lyrics just touch my soul. I absolutely feel these lyrics,
“I try to be strong, but I got demons so can I lean on you I need a strong heart and a soft touch, and ya the one when I want love.”
Just all damn year YES! I will be playing this album for years to come. This is not just a summer jam!
So that’s what I’ve been currently watching, reading, and listening to. I can’t be the only one enchanted with entertainment this summer so tell me all the things you all have been enjoying this summer! You can also check out the video here. Hope everyone is having a great summer and loving and engaging in all forms of entertainment!
