Downer and Anna Akana

Hey folks,

so the past few days I've hit a real downhill on my mood. I'm tired like 80% of the time, and all I want to do is snuggle up in bed with my cat, whilst drinking hot chocolate and watching a movie.

Instead of doing that I went for a walk with my mum and the dog.

We went to the usual place - the "green" and I couldn't not go without getting a picture of a tree. 
FUN FACT - I once hugged that tree after being advised by a spiritualist. I got as far as hugging it for 0.2 seconds before something flew in my face and I screamed. 

After our walk mum took me on a trip around the garden, telling me all her plans on what she wants to do with it, when I spotted one of my favourite flowers- the passion fruit flower. 

After this I was still feeling a bit low. 

So I decided to just get on and do work, which led to procrastination - obviously, which then led to me discovering Anna Akana. 

If you don't know who Anna Akana is, I highly recommend following her and subscribing to her. Her short films are just amazing, and her vlogs are so upbeat and inspiring. 

One of my favourite series was 'Riley Rewind'. It's close to Anna's heart, and her acting in it is incredible. It's about a girl who can turn back time and change past events to get a different future. The plot had me hooked and I literally sat down and watched every single one, one after the other. (well apart from the last one, because I had to stop for lunch). 

Lunch. This brings me to the typical salad. It was bacon and cheese and gorgeous and amazing, I could have it all again. 

After lunch I watched some more of Anna's videos and vlogs, before I decided that I should test some makeup for my youtube videos so I don't look like a sheet of paper. 

I looked to Tanya Burr for inspiration and did some testing with my video camera. I'm fairly happy with the results. 

Tomorrow, hopefully, I'll have filmed a new YouTube video that can get to you by Thursday. 

For now, live long and prosper my friends.
