French has been a language I have been trying to learn for the past 4 and a half years. Being one of the hardest languages I have even encountered this year seemed to have become the year I actually motivated myself to learn the language.
As any language it’s always good to listen and what better way to listen then to listen to music? Here are a few of my current favorites. Hope you like them just as much as I do.
10. Le coeur éléphant
This calming love song has found it’s way to my heart. The soft guitar and calming voices of the talented Fréro Delavega duo could make any morning a good one.
9. Te Quiero
Stormae. A well respected French speaking artists in Europe and outside of it. This is one of his older songs but it’s still in my mind one of the most underrated of his. One for dancing at home alone, maybe?
To be honest I never heard about Colonel Reyel until making my French playlist. This song brings some early-2000s summer feelings to me for some reason. A real lighthearted song for lighthearted moments.
7. One Shot
One Shot. An energetic anthem by the one and only Maître Gims. Off his last album One Shot won’t fail in getting you to dance.
6. Fais-moi Rêver
This tune makes me dream just as it promises you in the title. Black M is an artist I have really grown to love. And Fais-moi rêver is not an exception.
5. Ton Visage
Yet another calm one by Fréro Delavega. This one is for when you just want to be happy but calm at the same time, or one for when you just want to daydream.
4. Là c’est die
This song really makes me happy for some unknown reason. It’s almost as if you can hear the smile on the singer’s voice when he is singing. One you could totally bust a smooth move to.
3. On s’endort
Yet another new found love. Willy William. A real dance anthem for whenever you are out partying or throwing your very own. This song truly brings energy to the room.
Ego. There is just something about this song that makes it one of a kind. I can’t put my finger on whether it is the sound of the toy box used as an instrument during the whole song or the rhythm that made me fall for the song. Either way it’s worth the listen.
1. Cheveux Blanc
If you know me even a bit you will know that I have been absolutely obsessed with this song for the past two weeks. Although I have been listening to it constantly I’m still not tired of it. Black M has done it again and done it magnificently. Maybe not one for the club but definitely one to listen to.
It’s been awhile. I guess there is no way I could come up with a better excuse than having a huge workload; something that is unavoidable when you are a part of the IB. Although I have not been active here I have had the biggest urge to write because of how light I feel after my feelings have flown into my the words that have lingered from my the tips of my finger tips.
I want to be writing more but the issue is always what to write about. In a way it feels as if I have abandoned this place of reconciliation because of the fear of becoming too personal. At the same time I want to come with the ideas I hold but there is always a fright of hurting someone and feeling like targeting people without thinking about it.
I stand thinking about what to write, wanting to touch people and pressing their buttons to get them to start thinking a bit more. I guess it is time to experiment a bit.
If any of you reading this have an idea, please present them to me and reach out to me. It would be nice to get some input and feedback.
Never did I think I would fall in love with a city as I have fallen in love with York in North England. Although the streets were bare on Christmas day it caused a feeling of nostalgia and wonder lust within me. Everything is so pretty there, whether it is York Minster, the old wall of the town.
The small allies were my favorite. Somehow they got me wondering what would lay behind them. Stores that we are used to were all around York but they were hidden within the old aesthetic. Trust me, it took me some time to get use to looking at old buildings with signs indicating that there was a Urban Outfitters or Starbucks located within.
The town has so much history, being the old viking capital. Yet, there is so much potential for the future. To say the least, this was not the last stay in York. It might even be the beginning of a new obsession for me.
Sometimes the world just gets a little too much. Whether it is an internal struggle or an external one, everyone has in some way, shape or form gone through falling into oblivion. Never did I intend my blog to be a place of sorrow or be a quote-on-quote Deep blog but I guess sometimes the thoughts just hit you.
I am not writing this for people to feel sorry for me or anyone else because that is nothing I would want but I feel like I need to say it for the portion of you whom have felt the same in some point in time.
You are Enough.
No matter what you are thinking right now; you are enough. No matter what is going through your mind you will always be enough. No matter how much you think you should change, don’t because you are unique and there is no one like you. The world needs someone like you and if you feel like you need to change for someone than you should just stop and ask yourself if that person is worth your while. The only thing you have to do is be yourself.
I am painfully aware of the fact that I have not produced anything in ten days. Darn, that’s a long time. But when you are High Schooler life tends to get in the way, sometimes. And by sometimes I mean all the time.
I also know that I was in the midst of writing Blogmas, something that I was very excited for at the very start, the first two days to be exact. But as someone who likes to write to express myself and my thoughts I felt like Blogmas was basically pulling words out of me that meant nothing. It did not have a value in the same way as a lot of things I write about do.
As said, life gets in the way. Being a teenager is a time of growing as a person and finding your own words as they come to you. It is not a time to listen to there people and do as they wish but a time to find your own path.
At times that means not being able to write as much quality content as I would wish. But I am back. At least I will try to be.
