Some of my Favorite Things

Some of my Favorite Things

I want to take a look back and remind myself that there are some good things, the best things, and favorite things in my life. I thought of this when I was going for a walk today around my campus and it reminded me of some beautiful things hidden. I’ve realized that I really like hidden corners haha. But, I felt like I should share some things that I appreciate.

GOOD THINGS- small talk, people, things, smiles

GOOD THINGS- small talk, people, things, smiles

SO, how long has it been since I made a video? Almost since the summer, I think.

I’m really glad I made this video. It felt good and I was in no rush to make it. I know when I did the youtube thing I planned heavily or I made dumb goals that were unattainable.

This video is everywhere! I do a little bit of catch up on where and what I’ve been doing and at 7:07 the rest is a cute little montage of some good things 😉

Please enjoy!

If you like things like this pls lemme kno!

EVERYONES ALWAYS SAD – a new song

EVERYONES ALWAYS SAD – a new song

Okay okay, I really stalled this post because posting about my own music is pretty vulnerable. Some days I like my music and other times I really don’t. But I have to post about it sometime. And who knows! I have the choice to delete this if I wanted to :o. Anyway, I hope you enjoy 🙂

I really don’t know what this song is, but it was fun making it!

Give me a follow if you’d like 🙂

I have other songs like these…

Things I Hope To Do By The End of The Year

Things I Hope To Do By The End of The Year

Here is a little evaluation time. I remembered that I has some goals for the summer and some I did and didn’t do. So, I decided to compile a list here and also in physical form in a journal. These lists won’t be far fetched, just some goals and fun things I want to do. I feel like everyone should keep a list like this; so on a boring old day you might have something to do. Also, we’re at a half point in the year, I have to get some things done while I can.

Now, some of these things may cost money and others won’t. It really depends on the situation and task at hand. Now, let’s get to the list.

What I Do When I Feel…Creatively Frustrated

What I Do When I Feel…Creatively Frustrated

If I’m writing this post, it might be because I’m creatively frustrated. Haha – just a lucky guess.

I realized I forgot to write a post for today and here I am doing it very much last minute. Sounds like something I would do but I guess I work better under pressure.

I figured that I am not the only artist stuck in a rut, all of us (yes you are an artist too) are sometimes in a difficult place. Especially when it comes to a creative project or when you want to rekindle your creative spirit. It’s okay – we have al been there and we all will be there. Creative frustration should be a time to rebirth your spark.  I have a problem of thinking too much, way too much, to the point that I forget what I wanted to do/say/make/or act in that moment. It sucks, but I live with it. I have so much pen up excitement (and frustration) to just produce the words and images in my head. I just want to share, love, and make things for everyone! Here are some things I do to help myself. I find that this helps out a lot with how I think things through.

I give myself a solo music/dance scene


Yes. This is a faithful technique. It really just helps me feel better when I do this. I lip sync or literally sing along to my music while dancing in front of a mirror. I do this in the Continue reading “What I Do When I Feel…Creatively Frustrated”

Hollie’s Notebook – New Skills, Personal Goals, Life Goals

Hollie’s Notebook – New Skills, Personal Goals, Life Goals

Is this a new series? I don’t know, I feel that I have a lot of ongoing series happening to holliesongbird.com. I have playlists, Songs of The Week, Monthly Updates, What’s In My Journal, Gratitude, Reviews, Favorites, and many more that I’ve been thinking about but too afraid to start. I don’t want to lose my posts within themselves, so I decided to think about reorganizing. Before I get to that, I wanted to let you know that this may or may not be a new series. I wouldn’t categorize it as a Monthly Update since it won’t be anything about what is happening in my mental health or life. These are just notes I could have written down in my note book about bettering myself, or things I plan or wish to do over the break or free time. So I hope you enjoy, I figured that If I gave an explanation for this post it might help you better understand the messes I make for myself, hahaha. Here it goes.
