Elements + A Little Change To My Blog!

Water is something interesting. Sometimes it can literally save your life. We do need it to live. Other times though you seem to drown in it and it suffocates you until you don't need it anymore. Sometimes there is just too much. Some people say rain is god crying. I very much disagree. That's just sad and rain should not be sad. But then again it's not good either. It's just somewhere in between. I would say rain is god both cleansing and feeding the earth. Everyone has a water in there lives that they can't live without but can also kill them in the process.

Earth is what makes us whole. It is what we are and what we do and who we are. It is our home. It is everything. It gives us life. Sometimes though it gets angry at us and moves a bit. Because like all beings. It has feelings. It can't help but get mad. Just as we can't help but feel. But feelings are natural Just like earth.

To breathe we need air. It's Oxygen. Breathe in. Breathe out. Calming. Invisible. But essential to everything. A gift from the trees. Without air we would be corpses without a heartbeat because it is what makes us go and move and survive. But air can also come in it's full force and seem to just knock the air out of us. It can push you and make you stumble. It both gives and takes away.

Fire. Usually a destructive force. It can some suddenly. Just a flash of those autumn colors we love and then everything is gone. It can almost bulldozer everything and leave nothing but ashes behind. But then again. Isn't fire supposed to be what made us humans as in actual humans and not cave men? It lights our homes with just a flip. It cooks our food and warms us on cold winter nights. It's beautiful.

There are so many different elements to this world. Things that makes us who we are. It is what we are, how we think, what we like, and what we do. They are all elements of us. There is a good and bad to pretty much everything in this world. You just have to look on the good side and you will be a million times happier.

I think one reason people are sometimes so down is because they have this mindset that some things are good and some things are bad. Sometimes yeah this is true. One area where this isn't true? People. People are so complex and everyone has a good and bad side.

So that was different. Lol. So I was thinking about my blog lately and I realized I hadn't done one of my more.... I don't really now what to call them. Like all of the posts on my blog that aren't lifestyle for example this one or this one  or this one.  There like writing posts and I've called them poems in the past but something like this post wouldn't be considered poetry and I put them in the same category in my head. I think for now I'm going to call it my writing. So anyway I was thinking how much I love doing posts like this and how I haven't done one for a while mostly because I feel like there not long or good enough I guess. Starting now there will be more posts like this sometimes on my regular posting day which is Monday but also I will be doing a little extra post for you guys on Thursdays sometimes! 


What do you think this means? Do you like these types of posts from me? What something awesome you did this week? Are you excited to see more of this stuff from me? What kind of post would you call this?

Interview With Jaiya Victoria A 10 Year Old Model, Actress, and Dancer

Hello you guys! Today I'm pretty excited for this post because I have an interview with Jaiya who I met on Instagram recently! Soooo she's basically famous. Like she has a IMDB page which in my book makes you famous. She's also a dancer and model and skater and drummer and everything else. Did I mention she's 10??? Like this is not fair. So I decided she was like the coolest person so I messaged her and asked her if I could interview her for my blog and she kindly agreed. Let's get started!

In your bio you say you are a dancer, model, and actress but what does that actually mean?
Well it takes a lot of practice and patience and being confident. I take 15+ hours of dance classes per week, plus trying to make time for auditions, and homework of course! 

Ok wow. 15+ hours is super impressive! Who would you say inspires you the most? 
Someone who inspires me is Beyonce’ because she is so brave and confident.

Beyonce is super awesome! If you could have coffee with anyone (dead or alive) who would it be?
Prince because he was so unique and confident.  From the first time I heard Prince, when I was 2 years old, I used to hold onto the Prince CD cover and ask my mom to play the CD over and over and I even brought it to preschool for show and tell I love Prince so much!!  Also King Bach because he is really cool and funny and he does all these try not to laugh videos mostly by himself.

That's so sweet! How would you describe yourself in 5 words? 
Kind, confident, beautiful, amazing, successful.

Love it. What's something that you've done that you are most proud of? 
Shooting Chronicles Of Jessica Wu and it came out on YouTube on November 19, 2017, and I am proud of shooting it because its about a girl that grows up with autism and discovers her own power and grows up to become a crime-fighting hero. You can watch and subscribe at the following link, I hope you do!!

Everyone should go check that out by the way! I've only seen the trailer so far but even that looks super cool! What advice would you give kids your age who also want to do things like act and dance? 
Just believe in yourself and be confident and brave and respectful and trust yourself.

Totally awesome advice! What would your dream day look like?
My dream day would look like a bunch of unicorns and candy and so much fun and happiness and it would never end and you wouldn’t get bored or tired!

OK same. Unicorns are freaking awesome. What is your favorite thing to do? 
My favorite thing to do is dance, watch tv, spend time with my friends, and be myself.

Nice! What is something that you always try to remember? 
I try to remember that I’m perfect the way I am and everyone else should remember that, to stand up for what you believe, and be yourself.

Everyone should totally remember that! 

Make sure to follow her on Instagram (and while you're at it feel free to follow me as well) and check out the series she's in Chronicles of Jessica Wu!  I absolutely love doing interviews like this or general collabs with other people so if you're a blogger or someone with an online presence make sure to check out my collab page as I would love to work with you!

Do you like when I do interviews? Should I do more interviews like this? How could I improve my interviews? What type of post would you like to see more of on my blog? What would your dream day look like?

7 Things I Have Learned About Instagram So Far

So I got an instagram account recently when I turned 13 and I have been really enjoying it so far! I was super excited because my parents said I couldn't get an account until I turned 13. Also no this whole post is not just me trying to get you to follow me. That is what most of this post is about but not like the whole thing. I'm like so funny. So anyway I thought I would do a fun little post where I shared 7 things I have learned about instagram. :) Some of these are tips for other newbies and some are just general life things. Let's get started!

1. Hashtags Are Super Important

Before I started Instagram I realized hashtags were of course a thing but I don't think I realized how much. I know some people who use like 30 hashtags per post which is super impressive first of all because hashtags are actually harder to think of then some people think. For people who have like an amazing feed that is basically all the same you can use the same hashtags but for most people there pictures are different.

2. Looks Are Everything 

Instagram is how things look. That is the basis of what the platform is about. It is looks and perfection and pretty colors and how things fit together. On instagram I've realized that it's how pretty and how pleasing to the eye the picture is that makes them popular not really how cool they are.

3. It's Harder Than You Think

Like seriously. Before I got an account I'm pretty sure I had it in my head that I would post like ten times a day or something. I love photography and am always taking pictures but I've realized that most of the time those pictures aren't that great. Even posting everyday is pretty hard.

4. Captions Should be Interesting 

Although as I said above Instagram is all about looks but the captions should also be good. I think one of the best example would have to be paperfury who is an amazing book blogger. Her feed of course looks amazing and like a magical rainbow unicorn library (I'm not kidding) but her captions are also super funny and snarky and interesting. Also I've noticed that shorter captions just about blogging things to better then longer captions about life things. Like are you guys not interested in my wonderful life???? Am I not cool enough for you???? I'm kidding but still that interested me.

5. Filters Are Addicting

I've never had snapchat or anything and Instagram is pretty much my first social media and seriously the filters are so addicting. A couple weeks ago one of my little baby cousins came over (she's one of the cutest beings on the entire earth) and I was just playing with all of the filters and we got a couple adorable pictures. When I'm bored I literally find myself just taking random pictures of me with maybe the dog filter. I have an actual problem.

6. You Have To Actually Interact With People

Sadly like most of the rest of social media internet things you have to actually interact with people to get interaction. This means liking posts, commenting, and a bunch more stuff like that. I knew this from my blog but I'm realizing it more now is that I'm actually bad at commenting on people's things which sounds weird but let me explain. A lot of times I want to say something nice but genuine and cool and funny but then I think too much about it and just end up putting something like "awesome picture" for instagram or "awesome post" for blogs. This is an actual problem of mine. We all know those people who are genuinely funny and amazing and always make people smile online because that's their personality and I guess that's just not me? I'm not sure. Anyway... We've gotten off topic.

7. Themes Aren't Essential

I've been debating over this a lot lately and I have to admit I can't really decide but I would say in general this is true. Before I got an instagram I heard a lot about themes and being consistent and all of that general stuff. I've realized that first of all themes are freaking hard to keep up with. It's hard to even find good photos to post and it's even harder to make them actually look good together. Second it's not necessarily essential to have a theme. 

And that's it for today! Make sure to go check out my account  and comment down below your own! I'm not like a stalker but all of you guys are awesome so I want to get to know you! 

Do you have an instagram account? If so what were your first impressions of the app? Have you followed me yet (this answer should of course me yes)? What are some of your tips for instagram? What is your favorite social media app?
