So little time

A week from now I will be starting my journey to San Francisco and I sill have so much to do. Let's see I have to:

  1. Buy two Suitcases 
  2. Wash clothes 
  3. Buy medication
  4. Buy new underwear
  5. Tidy room 
  6. Pack
I'm going to focus on numbers 2 and 5 today so I can start with number 6 as soon as possible. I even forgot to schedule an appointment with the hairdresser for her to come before I leave but what you gonna do. 

Tomorrow I'll buy the rest of the things I need too, as I'll be out all day. 
In the morning I'm getting a tattoo with my sister. This will be her first one and it's so cool to me that her first one will be a matching one with me ^^ I'll show you guys when it's done. 
So I will go buy the stuff after that. 

I feel better already just writing everything down. 

Man I am so excited and so nervous omg. I need to get everything done, I'm sure I'm forgetting something. 

Wrapping paper! I need to buy wrapping paper too. And a present for my friend, it's her birthday on Thursday. 

Also, as I am going to be away during the holidays, we will be celebrating Christmas on Wednesday apparently haha that way I have a Christmas with my family ^^ so I need some little gifts for that too. 

What an exciting week, heavens.

Good day

I'm just sitting here with my cat and one of the vlogs I'm editing in playing in the background. I forgot to film an outro so I'll do that in a little while and paste it in the end.
I finally got some editing software as you may have noticed.

So the Panic! at the Disco concert was amazing! (< short video of the concert in the link) I had so much fun seriously. I though I was going to be a bit uncomfortable with the crowds of people but I was so wrong. I loved :D A vlog will be coming.

I'm really excited too because I'm going to be able to see The Gabbie Show !!! Gabbie is touring and she's in San Francisco just after I get there. If you don't know her, she is a youtuber and she is so funny. Seriously check her out I'm often found bingewatching her stuff.

I'm so excited for how my life is turning out right now. It's terrifying, but good terrifying you know? haha

What music are you listening to a lot of lately?

I'm all dressed up and naked

I’m not really doing much this year in terms of dressing up and celebrating Halloween like that (to be honest it’s never really been that much of a big deal around here) but! What I am doing is so much better and I’m so excited! 
I’ll be going to Madrid tomorrow, which is not too far, it’s about 3 or 4 hours away by car, and tomorrow night we will be seeing Panic! At the disco, live (!!)  And by “we” I mean my friend Belen and I.
I will be vlogging and it will be up next month as soon as I have my editing software and equipment up to date. I also have a vlog in which in revisit Almeria where I lived for 4 years so that will be up too, soon as possible.
I can’t wait to be able to share all these things properly, I’m so excited (!!)

^ Thats from my other blog btw, if you want my social media updates that's where it's going to be. This is going to stay like my more personal/diary type blog. 
So apart from being so excited about seeing Panic at the disco tomorrow, this week has been pretty good. 
A lot of walking around book shops and I found a couple I'm going to give Sam when I see him, I've also been practicing a new skill I'm learning, but more on that in the future. It's kind of a secret project right now (sh) 
Anyway, take care my dears, I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Seekers and Comments

> Bella ^^ How are you lovely? 
The theme of the YouTube channel is going to be travel vlogs mostly and some daily (or weekly more likely) vlogs. Also we'll be vlogging any like, concerts and things we go see. 
We'll be exploring Californa a lot; we've also got some interesting social experiments planned. 
Just plain "The Seekers" is also a good idea; I'll put it in the list thank you :D 
Yeah, I miss the kids at my job all the time but this is such an opportunity, to see world, to be with Sam, to take my life in another direction... I'm really excited!! 
And I have decided I am cross with the app haha
Take care lovely xx

> Sammy! Of course you didn't offend me! How could you possibly. 
Never mind, the offer still stands if you ever change your mind haha. 
So the Teaseekers is very me actually hahaha I'll pitch it to the list too hahahaha I love it. In the reply above ^ I mention what the channel will be about; mostly travelling and exploring, and a bit of anything else interesting that might happen in our life. 

Reading back it does seem like my life is rather fast paced doesn't it hahaha doesn't help that I don't update for large chunks of time so I bombard the updates all at once XD
Regardless, my life does move fast, but I love it that way. I don't believe in waiting around for something you want in your life. If you have the means and opportunity go for it. The worst that can happen is that it doesn't work out and you're left where you started and you always ALWAYS learn something. 
I've lost a lot of fear haha I just go for it. 
Take care lovely xx

We have Ruby to thank for my return

She recently reached out to me on social media and it brought back how I miss this little community. I hate how life seems to distract me from coming back here for periods of time.

I really want to be better at social media though because the plan *shhh* is to start up a YouTube channel with Sammy (my boyfriend - not beautiful Zumba and B&J Sammy from here - though if you want to be in our videos that would make me so happy)
So here we are again and here's to the ultimate effort.

Still on the subject of YouTube; We don't have a name yet. We've narrowed it down to something with the word "seekers" in it. Like "the ______seekers" (Think "thrillseekers" but more original)
ANY suggestions are welcome please. Please.

More big news.
Lost my job.
I'm currently working as a private teacher all over the place;
And next month I'm moving to California.

So that's happening haha, and to be honest I'm not even scared. I'm SO excited. It is going to be an amazing experience working and living over there and being with Sammy (!!)

We have two concerts lined up; We'll see "Daughter" (mentioned them in my last post) at the end of November, and Relient K which Sammy loves, but I don't know much about but I like them a lot too. That one is in December.

Also I have a question. I can't seem to find the blogger app in the app store, Does it have a different name or something? WHERE DID IT GO?!
I want to be able to post things on the goooooo

Love you  guys to bits,
talk to you soon xx

Sunday, 12 June 2016

I was going to apologize for being emotional but I've decided that loveing people shouldn't be something to be ashamed about.

I know summer is starting when I start getting really in to Daughter's music.
This week has been nice.

A couple weeks ago I passed the theory part of my driving test and I've had a driving session with my mother almost every day since then and every time I'm getting better, more relaxed and instinctive. I feel I will quite love driving once I gain a little experience.

To be honest I can't wait to pass my test. I'm really excited to be able to drive about (!!)

My god it has been so lovely and uplifting to read all your lovely comments on my last post <3 It really hit home how much I'm missed you guys.

I'm just taking a moment right now to appreciate some of the people in my life.

Sammy, to start with, all the way over in California. He's that sensitive thoughtful and amazingly sweet guy that loves taking photographs and refuses to be called a hipster. He's one of those people who are beautiful to start with but as you get to know him, seems even more breath-taking. He's smart and quick and I need a whole post to go on about his qualities.
I can't wait to go see him.

My best friends Tom and H. who live in England. Right now they are walking their dogs and they are just sending me videos of each other on the walk. I love how much I am a part of their lives even when I am far away.

Tana, my best friend over here. ( I think all of my friends I consider my "best friends" because I am only truly friends with people who are truly amazing ) she will literally never ever judge a thing with me. She's the kind of friend where you can just speak your mind and say whatever and she'll take it in her stride.
I do spontaneous things on a whim with her, like get pierced or tattooed.

Jota is another amazing person in my life. He is eloquent, he's a reader and a writer and a teacher. We connect on so many levels, I love talking to him. He's the seemingly quiet, sensitive friend, who would accept and admire you for all you are worth.

I have a whole list of people I could go on about. I'm grateful for Ami, Indra and Angy, who envelop my childhood in to three amazing adults. And for all the friends I've made through Ami, those guys are some of the most open minded and fun people I've ever met.

I love my sisters and my niece. My mother and my grandma. My cousins from London, who broaden my horizons and my cousins from Spain who do a bit of broadening and a bit of grounding.

I love my dad and I miss him very much.

I love people so much and I am not going to apologize for that. If there is someone that can't handle the way I feel things then obviously they have no place on my list.

And last but not least, Sammy (yes you this time <3), Ruby, Bella, Mich, Anne.. All of you, people from all over the world that I feel I have met, and definitely feel like you are part of my life. I love you to bits.

You guys are amazing <3

On blogs and vlogs

I've been pretty consumed by work this year. I'm just about coming up to my summer holidays now though and I'm trying to make a comeback in to social media.
If you still remember me, Hi. I've missed you so much.

It's weird that feeling of being so lonely on a Saturday and it's only 9am. It's because everyone I talk to online is either off doing things already or gone to sleep because they are in another continent. Do you get that? that lonely-as-fuck feeling with no apparent reason. Everyone just feels extra far away today I guess.

In my experience these feelings of overwhelming loneliness go away after a while. It's almost 12 now and I'm feeling much more upbeat.

Quite a few things have happened in my life since the last post.
I got a turtle and a tattoo, and my industrial piercing done. Yesterday I got an appointment for another tattoo on the 13th of July, and on the 23rd of this month I will be flying to San Francisco to visit Sammy.
I'm hoping to get another tattoo over there too, the one for my dad. Fingers crossed.

Because I'm going to start travelling again and I want to record/vlog my journeys as little souvenirs for myself I'm going to set up my own youtube account (I'll link it to you guys when it's done)

Also I'm having a little go at wordpress. I'll be writing a post there every Saturday and it's where I'll be doing my "10 good things that happened to me this week" posts on Sundays. It's also where I'll share my vlog videos once I get round to it, on Wednesdays I think .

In any case, go check it out and follow if you'd like the updates, it would be much appreciated <3

I'll still be writing here as well though.

I've missed you all my lovelies, so much, and I'm now off to check everything I've missed from you guys.

Amanda xx
