Netflix, No Chill

Hey Guys!!

As you may or may not know I AM A TV SERIES ADDICT *don’t worry I know my limits*. What can I say? I have a lot of free time and it’s so easy to get wrapped up in shows. Binge watching shows isn’t all bad; it could be a stress reliever in some ways. Think about the idea of forgetting about all your problems for a couple of hours and getting entangled in another world. Seems safe enough right?

So I watch a variety of shows, but I think they mainly revolve around supernatural beings, teenage drama, action films and marvel series. This list is mainly what I’ve binge watched recently and currently watching on TV.

5 Things To Do In Montserrat

Hey Guys!

As promised, here is my third post in relation to my travel weekend for Easter (First, Second). Known as The Emerald isle of the Caribbean, Montserrat provides nothing but lush surroundings, perfect for relaxing or exploring. These are five activities I would suggest to keep you active during your stay. However, I’m pretty sure you can find many others around the island.

Weekend Getaway // What’s in my bag?

Hey Guyyysss

Guess what’s this weekend……..Easter “holiday”

That means it’s a long weekend (no work Friday and Monday). However, that doesn’t matter to me, but for those employed *yay!*
This is my first Easter weekend being home since 2012; usually we (my family and I) go camping on one of the neighboring islands. However I felt like doing something different this year, so my best friend and I decided to go to Montserrat!
It was probably her idea initially and I just jumped at the opportunity. =)

Let’s Talk: Outgrowing Friendships

So last week we started out with Relationships, dating, situationships etc this week it’s OUTGROWING FRIENDSHIPS.

How many of you still have the same best friend from primary/high school?

Firstly, nothing is wrong with that and kudos to you. However, if you’re like me you probably don’t and that’s fine too!

When you’re first starting out in high school, you’re probably looking for someone you can get through those five years with; who you can relate too, and have similar interests in. I was never one to make friends easily, but I always felt like I never really fit in with the people I associated with. Yes, they were good company but our interests in life seemed different.

Of course you can still remain friends with that person after high school, but as you begin to grow things change. If you’re leaving your hometown for college in a totally different part of the world, your friendships may take a hit. As you go off to experience the world you begin to learn how it works and end up finding new interests. It’s understandable.

Age doesn’t necessarily define maturity but you may be growing at a different rate than your friends and suddenly you don’t mesh anymore. That’s fine too.  Note, you also meet people for different reasons. Whether to learn something from them or just to aid in your growing process. So it’s very common that a friendship may have just ran its course.

What do you do when you’re the one getting left behind tho?

It’s probably a hard thing to understand coming from this side of the situation, but take some time out and actually analyze it. Maybe, your friend has a different path than you and realized it before you did?

Thinking about it, the breaks I’ve taken from friends weren’t decisive ones but rather due to arguments. But isn’t the fact that we found ourselves back to each other a testament of how good our friendship is? There are other friends I’ve also had disagreements with that I still think about now and again, is that sign? Is it the memories I miss or something about the friendship?

What are your thoughts on giving friends space? Like in a relationship for instance you decide to take a break from your significant other…do you think that’s possible for friends? Maybe you need some time to readjust? Figure out your path in life?

Obviously I’ve reached the point of rambling, so tell me what do you think about outgrowing friendships?
Have you ever fell out (stopped speaking) with a friend?
What was the outcome?
Do you believe in rekindling old friendships?

What other topics would you like to see my views on?

Hey April!

(via brookeweeberillustration: April Flowers. | ❀ Spring Sweetness ❀ | Pin…):

Hey guys!

Welcome to a new month.  I like the feel of new months, because I think they’re a chance for a fresh start. As cliché as it may sound it’s a great time for a new beginning; forget all about what went wrong last month and focus on the current moment. All the goals you made at the beginning of the year, continue to work on them and set individual steps to reach them. Continue reading “Hey April!”

So besides my ‘Lessons learned from my Exes‘ post I don’t think I’ve ever spoken about relationships on here. Which by the way it doesn’t seem like I learned anything, but also because it’s a touchy/complicated thing for me.

However, Let’s talk! Continue reading “Let’s Talk: Relationships”

Get to Know Me Tag

Hey Guys!!

Due to the growth in followers/views recently, I decided to do a fun little ‘Get to Know Me Tag‘. I thought it would be a great way to reintroduce myself as well as let my new viewers know who I am. I don’t think I’ve ever done one of these before, so the only option previously was to visit my About Me page.
I found this tag online via Root Report and you’re welcome to try it out if you’d like.


(This is me currently, peep the hair growth)

Here we go, get to know me —>

5 Lessons of Blogging (+ tips)

Hey Guys,

Before we get into today’s post here are a few facts:

I’ve been blogging on and off for about three years now *whoa*.

I’ve had about three name changes finally sticking with ATBA.

When I first decided to start blogging I had no idea what I was doing.
(I don’t even recall doing research or anything; I just jumped and signed up on WordPress.)

I wish I could I remember my first post to share it with you guys, but overtime I’ve gone back to the earlier years and cleaned up some posts. Reading over old posts really makes you see how much you’ve grown and the way in which things change.

Anyway enough chit chatter here are my 5 Lessons of Blogging.
