Harry, was Sweet Creature written about a specific person?
*deep breath* um...in my opinion, I think most songs are written for one listener, in my personal opinion, in the way that I think, you know, people write books, they probably write them for one reader. and uhm...yeah I think it's a really amazing way of being able to say something to someone that, maybe they'll never know it's about them, maybe there's one thing in there that only they will know is about them. I think it's...you know like I said it's so much easier to say something in a song than it is to say it to someone. and I think it's...it's really amazing to be able to communicate through that and be able to wrap up everything you want to say in three and a half minutes and say it in a song.
for lack of, not like, really wanting to analyze your art right, you kind of said without saying that this song is kind of about somebody right? You had a message that you were looking to convey. Who makes you feel at home?
I think that's fair...I think that's a fair um...acknowledgement yeah
So does this person know that the song is written about them?
.....um...I actually don't know. I think the thing that's important to remember is it's not always necessarily...um...the first thing that you might think of but I obviously...would never...tell someone that what they thought was wrong. I think the best thing about music is that everyone can take away different things from stuff--
different to every ear!
--and that's not wrong, there's not really a wrong answer. I feel like a lot of my favourite songs that mean something to me, I'd be disappointed if someone told me they were about something else, it might ruin the song for me, so, uhm yeah I think Sweet Creature is definitely about one person but uh...yeah I think it's important to remember that there's many different types of things that it could be about you know a person...yeah you know what I mean? That an answer?
sometimes I’m like “bitch I feel fabulous imma put on beyonce, demi lovato, selena gomez, taylor swift, adele and lady gaga cuz im feeling great right now” but then sometimes I feel so nostalgic and i’m like “no let’s put on nirvana, the smiths, pixies, soundgarden, radiohead, pink floyd, michael jackson, elvis, charlie sexton, and janis joplin cuz shit man older music is great” but then I feel so angry and I’m like “fuck let’s blast eminem, kanye west, jay-z, Dr. Dre, thirty seconds to mars, MCR, nickelback, NF, starset, fall out boy cuz shit I’m feeling pumped” but then i get all tumblr and am like “shit man twenty one pilots, melanie martinez, x ambassadors, lorde, troye sivan, halsey, the weeknd, imagine dragons, bastille, lana del rey, let’s smoke a joint and get all alternative in this bitch” and then I’m like “omfg film score is the most beautiful form of music ever hans zimmer, james newton howard, john powell fuck this music is great and expresses so much unattainable emotion” then I hear fucking david guetta, calvin harris, M83, chainsmokers, rudimental, disclosure and be like “EDM is fucking amazing and makes me feel like i’m flying and dancing it’s great” then I put on my singer-songwriter playlist and I’m like “fuck but ed sheeran, passenger, damien rice, kodaline, sleeping at last, mumford & sons, hozier, the lumineers, elmore, dodie, are all so great and simplistic and make me feel like running through the forest on a cold morning” and I don’t have a single type of music because i have so many personalities and it gets really hard to explain sometimes but i guess the music is there to explain it all for me
As much as I love all the music videos they’ve been releasing there’s nothing quite like Scott and Mitch just sitting down and talking to the camera. Heart eyes Grassi and Heart eyes Hoying made several appearances throughout this video. Mitch and Scott making each other smile and laugh is the purest thing.
Hello guys! I’ve been getting a lot of
requests to do studying tips so here it is! I am by no means an expert but as a
student, I wrote this based on what I’ve learnt as I struggled and pulled
myself through my school life!
YOUR STRENGTH & WEAKNESSES
As a student, I personally feel that it’s
most important to know where your forte lies. By identifying your weakness you
would know the subjects that you should tackle rather than focusing on the
thing you’re already familiar with. You should spend more time on your weaker
areas compared to your strong one, however do not get complacent!!!
Studying for exams are always a race
against time, thus mapping out the things you should do is always important. I don’t
have a strict time schedule where I allocate certain timing for my subjects;
however, I do time myself when I do papers. For example, when I was doing math
papers as revision for o levels, the duration given for one Emath paper was 2
hours. Thus, when I practiced and did my papers, I would only give myself 1 and
half hours. This will train me to do my papers faster with maximum accuracy.
You’re also required to have a good grasp of your subject to be able to
complete questions faster.
& EAT WELL
Somehow during exam periods, a lot of my
friends start sacrificing their sleep and food to study. And I can’t emphasize
enough how wrong this is. Most of my friends, who do this, end up making more
careless mistakes in their paper and thus winding up with lower marks. Lack of
sleep is a serious flaw and can jeopardize you paper immensely. If you’re
tired, rest; don’t try to push yourself because your brain won’t be able to
absorb the information any longer. It’s the same situation with the food, if
you sacrifice your meals, you may end up getting gastric that may just affect
your performance during the paper.
Well duh right? Everyone makes notes, but
more importantly, you need to make notes that you would want to read. As much
as the process of writing and remembering is important, if you like the way you
notes look, you’ll feel more inclined to read it. Thus, this is partially why I
enjoy making notes that look pretty to me.
Never ever forget to take breaks. I’d
recommend a 15minutes break every 2 hours. Pushing yourself to sit there
continuously will only cause you to lose focus, causing you to become restless.
Different people have different attention span, thus never ever compare
yourself to your friends and force yourself to sit down and study as long they
do. Find out what works for you and what doesn’t.
I looooove music. But I have to admit, listening
to music while I’m trying to memorize some lit quotes, isn’t working out for
me. Thus, I don’t recommend listening to music as you’re trying to absorb
content heavy subjects. However, if its question based subjects like math, by
all means. Check out my studying playlist!
You need to know what method helps you work
best. Writing? Auditory? Everyone has a different style of learning that works
best for him or her. Some people need to read their content out loud for
themselves to hear before they can memorize, however this does not work for
everyone. Maybe you’re the type that needs to draw diagrams to colour code your
notes. Whichever the case is, its best to know yourself, and the style of
learning that best suits you.
Stress isn’t necessarily bad. A little bit
of stress can get you off your lay bum and to start doing some work. However,
being overly stressed will just backfire and may cause anxiety problems. This
is why it’s essential to keep a healthy balance of work and play. Don’t
overwork yourself and drive yourself into a corner, this isn’t healthy for you
or your studies. Taking conscious effort to distress can help keep a pleasant
attitude and mind that’s good for learning.
If you find yourself being constantly
distracted by your phone or a particular app, delete it. Lock your phone in the
drawer or temporarily delete your social media apps. Downloading focus aps can
help you too. Apps like helps block access to some websites can restrain you
from falling back into the trap that is distractions.
It is important that you’re doing all this
for yourself. Not your parent. Not anyone else, but you. If you lack the desire
to get good grades and do well, it’ll definitely be tough finding the
motivation to do anything. You don’t have to like studying, but you at least
have to want getting good grades. If you desire to have straight As, you’ll
naturally fell more inclined to do something to help you get it. However, its
also important to set realistic goals. It’s impossible for you to jump from a
F9 to A1 in a month. Set practical goals and take baby steps to get there.
Well, procrastination can be a bitch. I
started my studyblr account during my o level periods because seeing other
people’s notes made me want to study. You should find a way to help YOU counter
your procrastination tendencies.
All in all, studying is something very
unique and personalized. What works for me may not work for you, but if you
keep working hard. No goal is ever too far. Thank you for reading!
Drawing and painting her way through an imaginative landscape of intricate and visual entanglements is Austin native, Sophie Roach. Her artwork has endlessly covered surfaces from– guitars, beer cans, Vans, to entire rooms. And if that isn’t already insanely rad, her organic approach and laid back attitude make her not only incredibly humble, but also a super awesome collaborator. While finishing up one mural and starting up new projects, we had the chance to ask Sophie a few questions about her art, her career, and her approach – from finding her voice, attacking a mural, to digging the quietude one might find as a mail person hah!
This is the link to my Spotify account, so if you’re interested by what I have to offer, then feel free to check out my variety types of playlists with numerous forms of music genre. Moreover, every playlist has its own description, in which case you will be informed on each playlists types of music genre.
You and Shawn had a lot going for each other; he was about to go on his first full out tour in the U.S., and you were preparing to go to your dream school. To top it all off, the two of you were nearing your one year anniversary with each other. It’s been a long ride between different schedules and time zones, but the two of you made it work.
Unlike the rest of the anniversaries that the two of you have shared, you suggested having a nice dinner in the comfort of your shared home this time. The contrast from fancy and uptight dinners would be nice for the two of you. All you needed was to be with Shawn, and you’d be happy either way. You had been so ecstatic about the upcoming date with Shawn for weeks now, that every time you thought about it, you couldn’t help but squirm in your seat from excitement. Something about him made every date feel like the first. Whether it was him bringing flowers or giant teddy bears, his gestures always managed to make you melt.
As the days became hours until your anniversary was coming, you picked out Shawn’s favorite dress on you to wear. The dinner might’ve been at home, but you put on as much makeup as if you were about to walk the red carpet. Don’t get it wrong — you were comfortable enough around Shawn to be bare faced, but you wanted this to be the perfect night for the two of you, and that would start by you looking and feeling your best. You also started dinner in the midst of everything to make sure you were on schedule.
Shawn was out with his friends, which gave you the perfect amount of time to tidy everything around the house up. You didn’t mind if he was out for the day, because you would be able to have him for the rest of the night. It was going to be a great night for the two of you.
what i mean:
It's a film that, essentially suffers from an existential crisis throughout the entire two hours it runs. There's no world building whatsoever, leaving too many unanswered questions the audience in regards to the magic and lore of the land. It's inferred the trolls know everything there is to know about magic, but it does not explain how Elsa recieved her powers in the first place, leaving a pretty big unanswered question. Also, the decision to take a fantasy race usually isolated from magicks as the main sage magicians was an ...interesting choice, and would have worked out a bit better if the world was built up more. The plot is all over the place, with there being no clear antagonist until the final arc of the movie. Is the Duke of Weaselton supposed to be the antagonist? No, and he honestly doesn't even belong in the movie: in what way does this character move forward the plot? He doesn't, so why is he given such emphasis? Is Elsa supposed to be the antagonist? Through the film the audience is constantly being given conflicting views as to whether or not we are supposed to sympathsize with her or hate her, and we're never given our answer until the final arc of the movie, which is, ironically, when the real antagonist show his face: Hans. Since he is introduced as he antagonist in the final arc, it makes Hans' development as a villain feel rushed and unnatural. Such a sudden heel-face turn from charming benevolent prince to cold-blooded killer feels wrong, and considering there was no foreshadowing or dramatic irony leading up the reveal, it comes as a shock to even the most watchful moviegoers. Beyond the shock response, there is no reason for the audience to hate Hans, making him an ineffective villain all in all. The audience only hates him because he betrayed the trust that was willingly given in the first half of the film. Yes, he wants to usurp the throne and kill everyone off, but wouldn't that incentive be more effective if it were presented as such from the beginning of the movie? Give the viewers hints and clues that he is not what he seems, making the reveal of his plan much more suspenseful. Additionally, if it were addressed from the beginning, a large amount of the aimless plotless wandering that plagued most of the first three-quarters of the movie would be practically non-existant. In addition, the shock factor response wears off eventually; the impact of his betrayal means less and less to the audience each time they watch it. Part of the reason of the weakness and confusion in the beginning also stems from the fact that the movie is trying to juggle too many characters. Many named characters are completely unneeded and did not need to steal screentime (and by extension, valuble character development) from the main characters (Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and I guess Hans). And the lack of character development is bad. Really bad. Anna doesn't feel like a real person, even by Disney standards. Elsa is a bit more believable, but her "development" is rushed and inferred instead of shown to the audience as it should be. Why was there such an emphasis on the parents in the beginning if they were only going to be killed off for plot fuel? And as an audience member, I did not feel any sadness for their death or for how Anna and Elsa were grieving. Having Elsa locked in her room for upmost of ten years was just...weird. There was absolutely nothing that justified it, making the isolation feel like a cheap way out for the writers to transition from childhood to adulthood. And beyond that, Arendelle is shown to be a peaceful kingdom, so it makes no sense that Anna would not be allowed to leave the castle and walk amongst the city. If magic exists in this world, why was Elsa locked away? Why was it a secret? All of these questions stem from weak worldbuilding that justifies very little of the events of the movie. There are so many unanswered questions that rise up from what happens inbetween childhood and adulthood. Is there a puppet monarch? Was magic seen as something negative or unknown? Why the trolls. Why the trolls. I'm sorry I just do not understand the trolls. The romantic subplot again ties into making the trolls feel even more forced and unneeded and the Hans reveal stale, I don't need to go into this. From a technically standpoint, the animation is subpar compared to its contempararies. Rise of the Guardians, a movie made a year before Frozen, had better ice effects. The particle effects and textures were nothing to write home about and the numerous clipping issues are clear evidence that the final product was rushed. The character design is the biggest complaint everyone has heard the most, but, Jesus Christ, oh my god it's bad. There's virtually no variation in character design. The facial structure of all the women are practically identical. Elsa, Anna, their mother, even Rapunzel all look 100% identical. Perhaps that wouldn't be such a problem if their body types were the same as well. There's no power of silouette in the film, something that is absolutely crucial to animated film, making Anna and Elsa blend together not only in the film, but in the industry itself. They do not stand out. They are blank and bland. The music is the only good thing, and that's only considering some songs. "Let it Go" and "First Time in Forever" are strong, powerhouse showtunes that actually move the plot forward, as songs in a musical should, but "Fixer-Upper" and "Love is an Open Door," while good, solid songs, do relatively nothing for the plot can could be omitted without sacrificing anything. "In Summer" is a total joke song that literally fades into nothing--I could not recall the tune if I tried, and "Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?" has a lot of potential but is, esentially, the same chorus repeated with little to no transition three times. It doesn't help that the song is also the most awkward contrived timeskip in the history of awkward contrived timeskips, again because it is never explained why Elsa is locked in her room at all. And the trolls and the--oh god. Please, all artists and writers, do NOT overlook the importance of worldbuilding. Even the dialogue is mediocre and does nothing to immerse the characters into the world around them. The resulting product is nothing but two hours of mediocrity masquerading as the best film of the decade in commercialization and ticket sales, but ultimately does nothing but leave a bad taste in the audience's mouth and will encourage Disney to continue making mediocre movies because they know they will sell and sell well.
