One of my favourite songs

Over the last couple of months, I have become completely addicted with watching Rupaul’s Drag Race on Netflix (they have all six seasons available!). Through these shows I discovered RuPaul’s music and have more or less listened to them every week religiously. So, since I zipped through the seasons so quickly and unfortunately Netflix haven’t made Drag Race All Stars or Untucked (the extra bits from Drag Race) available to watch, I’ve decided to deal with my withdrawal symptoms by creating these cool little quote images of my favourite lyrics and sayings that have come from the legendary Queen of Queens!

This one is from a song called The Beginning – I really relate to these lyrics at the moment as I am planning to move into London for the first time, which I’m exceedingly excited about. Of course, there are those moments of sheer panic thinking about how it’s all going to turn out, but then I just listen to this song! It’s upbeat and full of motivational lyrics that make you feel better about what may lie ahead…

Mixtape masterpiece

#279: You make a new friend. Make them a mixtape (or playlist, for the younger folks) that tells them who you are through song.

Hmm… a tricky one! I don’t know whether there are songs that could sum up or narrate my life – and I’m not saying it to insinuate that my life is completely different from every other persons on the planet, but purely that I’ve never thought of songs in that way. So instead, I’m going to examine my (current) favourite songs, to see if there is any relevance…

Pentatonix – La La Latch. The ‘La La La’ parts of the song of the song refer to families future responses to upcoming (exciting) decisions and the ‘Latch’ parts refer to a new interest in my life.

Pentatonix – Rather Be (cover). Again, referring to a new interest.

Sigma ft. Paloma Faith – Changing. Referring to a part of my life that I hope is going to continue to change over the next 6-12 months… exciting times!

Meghan Trainor – All About That Bass. I believe that the use of PhotoShop to manipulate models images for glossy mags/billboards etc, should stop as it’s damaging to tonnes of teens around the world. Fair enough, I’m only a size 8-10 but women should be portrayed as healthy weights and as Megan rightly references… no plastic, stick thin barbie dolls!

Pharrell Williams – Happy. Self explanatory 😀

The Lion King – Hakuna Matata. A motto that I try to live by… it means no worries for the rest of your days!

Les Miserables – Little People & Do You Hear The People Sing. Just because some of the verses are very relevant at the moment (and I LOVE Les Mis!) – plus I’m only 5″3, so Little People signifies that height doesn’t restrict an individuals capabilities.

Hercules (Disney’s) – Go the Distance. As I believe that I can (and will) achieve great things in my lifetime.

And I couldn’t write this post without including… Frozen – Let It Go! Signifying that I’m ready for the next stage of my life, no matter what anyone would think of me.

Eeek! Tomorrow is the big day!

So in the UK, I only have 20 minutes until it’s tomorrow and I realise I’ve been so busy preparing for tomorrow’s race, that I’ve completely forgotten to write todays post! Major eeek! I read the prompt but couldn’t think of a suitable answer, so I thought I’d instead write a brief post about tomorrow.

Tomorrow, also Father’s Day here in the UK, will be my first ever charity run. I’m competing in Cancer Research’s 5K Race for Life, with my mum, cousin and brave Auntie, who beat cancers tookus a couple of years back. My target was to raise £100 but unfortunately I am £40 short 😦 I’m thinking of selling some of my stuff on eBay when I get home tomorrow and giving the money to my page so that I can reach my target. If anyone fancies donating, my page is http://www.justgiving.com/chloe-may-ward. All donations, no matter how big or small, are greatly appreciated. 

For a long time, and before the incredibly inspirational Stephen Sutton, I’ve seen donating to Cancer Research as an investment into the lives and futures of all my friends and family. So many people get this truly cr*ppy disease and it needs to stop. So, cancer… I’m coming to get you!!!

#95: Tell us about another blogger who has influenced your own online journey.

Since I only began blogging on New Years Day this year, I have yet to find one blogger that has influenced the way I write my own posts. That said, I always look forward to reading posts from the following bloggers, as they’re either completing the same blogging challenge (so it’s always nice to compare prompt responses) or they’re just generally fun and uplifting… Or both!
