Relax

Have you ever drank so much coffee that you were so hyped up that it caused you to literally shake? That has been me my whole life. Minus the coffee. Ever since I can remember, I've been a nervous wreck. I went through a stage as a child, where I was afraid to go outside. I remember grocery shopping with my parents once, and just breaking down to tears because I thought I was susceptible to catch some deadly virus because I left my house. Luckily, I got past that awful stage, but it was still hard. High school was a bit better, but After high school has been terrifying. So much gets thrown at you all at once and I've never felt more lost an confused. Luckily I have a very supportive family and good group of friends to keep me sane. 

I've picked up a few things that help me relax, and maybe can help you too, because I know I'm not the only one who's stressed out! 
1) read. Read lots, read often. It gets your mind off everything going on in your life. I've collected quite the collection of books in the past couple of years. 

2) don't be afraid to have a bath. I always hated baths, but lately I've really been loving them. After discovering bath bombs, how can you not love them? 

3) sing. I'm not much of a singer, but just belting it when I'm stressed really helps me let loose and get rid of all those negative feelings. 

4) surround yourself with positive, upbeat people. If you're around negatives, you're likely going to become one. So surround yourself with people who can be a role model. 

5) take deep breaths. 5 seconds in, 5 seconds out. Relax the shoulders, it works wonders. 

I still get stressed out over silly things all the time, but over the years I've picked up these techniques and they've helped me considerably. So hopefully, they can help you too! Do what you enjoy doing and try to live light. Don't worry about what anyone thinks and you'll be just fine. Good luck!!!!!

Welcome to my Blog!

Hey guys, how's it going?! 

Welcome to my blog! Since this is my first ever blog post, I thought I should tell whoever's reading, a little bit about myself. 
I am 19 years old and was born in Vancouver, Canada. I have a dog named Saki, and a cat named Baby. 




I just started a YouTube Channel about a month ago with my best friend, Rachelle. Watching all of the great YouTubers, such as Pewdiedie, Zoella, Shane Dawson, Tanya Burr and so many more, got us inspired to start our own channel. 


So far, it's been great, we're both enjoying it so much! We're very committed and proud of the work that we have put into it so far. I really never thought that I would have YouTube as one of my main hobbies, but now that I've started, no matter how many people are watching, I don't want to stop. 

At the moment, I am working with my mom, in home. We run a licensed daycare together. I've always loved kids, I volunteered at a daycare when I was younger and I guess it just stuck. Everyday is so different and I never know what to expect. One day, I'm baking brownies, and making new crafts with the kids, the next, I'm literally washing poo off the floor. Don't ask. 
It's such a rewarding experience and I'm really fortunate to be doing what I really enjoy. 

Though YouTube is now going to be a big part of my life, I do have other hobbies. If you live in Vancouver, you have to be a mountain freak. Some people ski or snowboard, others mountain bike. Though I'm not very good, I love snowboarding. It's so calming and exciting at the same time. It was another thing I never thought I'd find myself doing. I'm very cautious and have never participated in many sports, but being a Vancouverite I guess I had to give in sooner or later. 
Another hobby I have is cooking and baking. I love to blast music and spend a few hours in the kitchen, I also find that calming. I may even post some recipes on here if I think they're unique or exciting enough! 

Well I think that's enough of an intro! Hopefully you're not asleep yet! I'll try to write as often as I can about as much of a variety of things I can. Thanks for reading! Bye guys! x
