Announcing Everyday Enthusiasm

After much debate, I’ve decided to post every day in September. Yep, that does mean Enthusiast every day for a whole month! *hears distant sounds of Enthusiasts screaming in excitement*

Everyday Enthusiasm Header

Starting tomorrow, Everyday Enthusiasm is going to be bracing your screen with exciting new content! I’m so excited to be announcing this because I’ve always wanted to do something like this, but never really had the time to put it together. But now it’s all coming to life! Now, because I need to save my typing fingers for a month of enthusiasm, I’m going to explain Everyday Enthusiasm and then drink a smoothie. Let’s go, team! Continue reading

August Faves: Movies, Music & More

August was one of those months where everything was awesome and I was introduced to a lot of cool new things that I love. So, what better way to show you the things I now consider staples to my enthusiasm than to make a cheeky little list for you. Here are my August faves!

If These Aren’t Your Faves, They Should: Morgan’s August Enthusiasms

Movie

I didn’t go the cinema much this month (it kind of ran by me and suddenly it was August 27th) but I did go once, and this is the movie that became my obsession.

TMNT was so good! I know it’s probably meant for 12-year-old boys, but I loved it. I grew up with the cartoon and it’s like the cooler version now that I’m an adult. I’ve always liked live action movies more, and this film just proved that live action makes all better. It was funny and clever and I think everyone could like it. I know all my male friends who have seen it loved it, and I liked it as a young adult girl, and my dad saw it with me, and I know he chuckled several times. Definitely a must watch for someone who wants to escape at the cinema for a few hours and focus on something entertaining rather than their stresses. TMNT is my movie obsession for the month.

Seattle, Sheeran & Sleep Deprivation

Hello all, I am back from my exciting week away! I have so much to tell you, so let me start!

Seattle

Seattle is one of those places that whenever I go there I immediately want to live there. I went to Seattle with two of my best friends and one of their sisters, and we stayed with the other’s older sister. Yes, I am aware that is a lot of sisters. Anyway, we’re sitting on a dock next to the Kirkland outdoor market with the ocean spread before us and I’m thinking, “I should have gone to school in Seattle. I love it here.” But alas, I do not live in a house by the water, I live in rainy Eugene.

One of my favourite parts of being there was going to the lake near the house we were staying at. Having grown up on a lake, I’ve forgotten how much I enjoy the serenity of being surrounded by water and trees and dirt. It’s a special feeling. My friends and I ended up jumping into the lake (in improper swimming attire) and it was just a blast. Here’s a video of me doing just that.

“x” Album Review

In honour of me seeing Ed Sheeran tonight (yes, I am going to see the wonderful British music genius tonight) I am putting up my review of “x” Ed Sheeran’s latest album. This album is so amazing and I’ve been putting the songs in every playlist I’ve made for weeks, so reviewing it only seemed natural. Thought please remember that I only know my own musical tastes and that’s it. I have zero musical training (though I can play two chords on the guitar.) So, without further ado, here is my review of “x.”

If this review really gets your music vibes going, you can purchase it on iTunes. And next week I’ll let you know if it sounds just as good live! (Yes, I am internally combusting about getting to see him live because I love Ed’s music.)

“x” by Ed Sheeran

1. One

This song is slow and sweet and I always find myself singing along. A lot of Ed’s music is slower, but on this album this slower song is definitely one of my favourites. It’s just too cute and all about there only being one person for you. It’s great for car listening music.

Commenting: Time to Speak Out

As all bloggers do, I encourage all of my readers to comment on my posts to share their thoughts. Two  years ago, I wrote a post about boys and told my readers to comment on it, so that I may help them. This was a gigantic mistake on my part, and today I would like to talk about why.

Almost daily I receive comments very similar to this one.

I like this boy and I am shy. How do I get him to like me? HELP ME ASAP!

No hello, please, thank you, or anything. They don’t even address me by name! It is hurtful for me to basically be treated as an advice slave by a bunch of teenage girls because they don’t know how to use their commenting manners. Sometimes it irritates me so much that I will deliberately not answer a comment for days because I feel hurt. Yes, like all human beings, my feelings do get hurt.
