Life seemed like a kaleidoscope to me. Everything changed and nothing made sense…but it was wonderful

Miscellaneous Monday: We're back in 1989 with Ms Taylor Swift



We can call it a comeback. After taking a two years break from music (not really 'cause she worked on her new album) Swift is back and not empty handed, she's bringing us GOOD POP, like REALLY GREAT. As always she's change, grown and written her life in songs that we can make ours, all mix with 80's sounds that blend perfectly with the 1989's concept.

The album starts with 'Welcome to New York', the track that says goodbye to Nashville's country sweetheart and hello to the new worlwide pop-star that Taylor has become. She makes us dance along to her new beat with lines like "Took our broken hearts put them in a drawer" "Searching for a sound we hadn’t heard before". This is definitely the best introducing track she could've chosen.

The second song, "Blank Space" IS INSANE. So many good lyrics in just one song, this one is probably one of the radio jams we're getting from this album. It's the perfect combination of base+lyrics+vocals, I just can't stop nodding my head to this beat, one of my favourite definitely. Please take a look at this sassy/perfect lyrics:
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane

Cause you know I love the players

And you love the game

Next two tracks are appearently about Harry Styles from 1D, "Style" (I mean, c'mon Tay-Tay...) and "Out of the woods". Taylor herself said that OOTW is about the breakable nature of some relationships and it's true, she got what she wanted, she made this song sound like the emotions. I CAN'T EVEN EXPLAIN HOW POWERFUL AND GOOD THIS SONG IS OR HOW IT MAKES ME FEEL BUT IT IS DEFINITELY A GOOD FEELING.

Then we've got the typical pop sounds with "All you had to do was stay" and the can't-stop-replaying "Shake it off" and the omg-that-melody-is-awesome "I wish you would". Three different songs about different issues, we have love and how one part of the relationship reminds the other how they should've either stayed or comeback, not throw it all away with stupid fights. AND SHAKE IT OFF IS SUUUUCH A HAPPY SONG.


Now, "Bad Blood", which I personally love, maybe because I feel very identified with the lyrics and the rythm is so cheerleader alike, making it a relatively "sad" song about a bad friendship/relationship that once was kind of perfect and full of good memories. I'm in love with the lyrics 

Band-aids don't fix bullet holes

You say sorry just to show


I'm sorry but I feel kind of weird about "Wildest Dreams" because I feel like she has listen too much Lana del Rey. Don't get me wrong, I love Lana del Rey, but I'd rather listen to Taylor not doing this music because it's hard not to compare them. And as sorry as I am to say lyrics and parts of the beat are so Lana it's uncomfortable.

Another worth mentioning song is "Clean" which reminds me of RED album vibes and I love it. Seriously this track is amazing. i was afraid the album would missed a ballad but here it is.

So without further ado, I recommend listening to this album on repeat anytime at anyday, the sooner the better. Enjoy the lyrics, the beat, the pop sounds we all need sometimes. Swift's riskiest work to date gets her rid of the image of the Taylor we all knew, giving us a new, fresh and powerful woman who knows what she wants, goes and gets it. But we don't have to go deep inside to see tha Tay-Tay will always be Tay-Tay.

PS: Not the best review to date, I kept rewritting it and this is the best version I've got.

PS2: Next post --> TOMORROW (because being the messy person I am, I didn't upload on Sunday).

PS3: Gosh two comments in the same post... THANK YOU!! Thank you for taking time and reading my shit, it is what makes me happy, it's what I love to do, so thank you so much for considering it worth your time THANK YOU!!!

♥ See you soon beautiful people ♥

On future and how it turns out to be one of the scariest things for me

Sooooo the main issue here. I'm scared, extremely fearful about the career choice I've made.
I've chosen to study a degree in Psychology, but I'm not sure I've made the right decision.
Today, I was, very seriously, thinking (wow, my brain actually works) about what I want to do with my life when I finish my degree, basically what I will do for the rest of my life. yeezzzz, I want to do so many things!

Psychology seemed like what I wanted to study at first, and I'm not gonna lie, I really like the subjects I'm taking, but what if I'm wrong?
I mean, I want to help people, of course (that's why I'm studying Psychology in the first place) but I also want to be a speaker, I want to write books, I want to be an expert at Economics and English, I want to be able to speak 5 different languages at least. I really want to make music and discover all of physics' secrets (yes I love physics don't judge), I want to learn about graphic design, design my own clothing line, volunteer for at least two years straight... I WANT TO CREATE FOR FUCK'S SAKE.

Then, after thinking of all that, I had a panic attack, and after twenty minutes I realised that I've bitten my nails way too much much; one of my fingers was bleeding. So yeh...
What I want to tell you with this huge paragraph about how indecisive I am, is that if I would've had all the resources I would've studied English or music because that is what I really wanted (maybe if I were studying any of those, I would tell you that I wanted Psychology, 'cause that's what humans do). I'm not saying I've become the person people wanted me to be, but I'm 100% sure I'm not who I wanted to be by this time in my life either.

My darlings, when deciding about your future, write down your life goals, choose your prior one and divide it in small goals till you find one that is reachable at that time. That must be the next step you're taking in your life.
When deciding your future think for yourself and isolate from any external variables. It's your future, and you should be able to do whatever the hell you want about it.

Summing up, probably the best decision is the one that, when you think where it's gonna take you in ten years time, it allows you to picture yourself as a happy and fulfilled human being.
DON'T RUSH!

PS: I still don't know where the hell I'm going or what the fuck I'm doing.
PS2: Next post coming on Friday!! (omg I'm actually sticking to a plan, this is new)
PS3: If you're thinking about commenting or have just read this post THANK YOU SO MUCH YOU'RE AWESOME

♥ See you soon beautiful people ♥

This songs sound like leaves falling. The ultimate Autumn Playlist




After (at least) two weeks of over-thinking and editing my Spotify playlist a thousand times to find the perfect autumnal sound, I decided to share with you my "Autumn Vibes" playlist.
I love all the songs that are here presented, but I must say my favourites are Pine Trees, Asleep, Slide Away and the masterpiece that is I Gave You All.
I tried to mix as many genres as I could, there are oldies and newbies, pop and folk... but all these songs get me in the fall mood and they've became my soundtrack for the past few days. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do and also, tell me more songs so I can expand my collection.

PS: Do you have an Autumn playlist? 'Cause I would love to see  what kind of music ya'll into.
PS2: Next post coming on Wednesdaaaay any clue?
PS3: Thank you so so much for reading. I very much appreciate that you take time to read my posts and OMG EVEN COMMENTING SOMETIMES

♥ See you soon beautiful people ♥
