My Life Monday #6

July 2, 2017

Wooooooooooo. I don’t know. I’m just writing. This is how my mind works.

How are you? I’m doing well if you were curious. Having one of the greatest summers of my entire life.

Sorry for not posting on Friday this was my week:

Let’s start from what went down at the beginning of this week. Working out is so, so difficult right now. I am in so much pain, and working and working out twice a day is killer on me. I was alo in a little rut this week of the month, so I will hopefully be ready the next day.

Monday I was doing the best that I could, but I was also out riding my horse in the evening when it was cooler. I put on a good ride and my legs were screaming. But I think one of the best parts were I got to see one of my favorite people in the whole world. She is addicted to horse riding and I only see her once a year for fair, and it was amazing to see her.

Look, personally I am a goal oriented person and I am doing things all the time. It is so hard to be self motivated sometimes but I find that without even knowing I have to be around people that work hard and are goal oriented to and have a good energy that helps me. Most of my friends in school are honestly too young to be as self motivated as me, but they feel me with good vibes, but my older friends really push me and help me to push myself. It’s all just good vibes and it makes me happy.

We worked really hard on my horse riding skills so I could kill showmanship, and I gave it my all.

The next day was the horse show. I was up bright and early, got down to the show. My beautiful boy Halo was all ready to go. We won second in advanced, second in trail, second in equestrian, first in western pleasure, and first in horsemanship. It was amazing, I gave it my all, and I had such a good time. I was with this family that I only see once a year but all we did was lift each other up and congratulate each other, and we had an amazing time. Good vibes.

Wednesday, Thursday were surviving, but Friday. Friday I got to see somebody that I love very much. We have known each other since I was 9. She graduated this year and I absolutely love her. I slept over at her house for what was supposed to be one day, but ended up being two. We were clipping goats for fair, and I will tell you, that binds friends together. It was so amazing to be with her, and around her good energy. Her sister is also amazing and made funnel cakes. Uuuuugh so good. Because we’ve been going to fair together for years I felt comfortable with her family and their was no awkward period where you try and be on your best behavior, it was all super chill.

Nothing but good vibes and lots of goats. I can’t wait to see her at fair in a week, and again before she leaves to college.

Saturday and Sunday were spent clipping goats. My allergies were going off. But it was great being with those people and to sleep in my own bed.

So anyways that’s why I forgot to change the pictures a few days ago and yeah. Wow I’m such a good writer… and yeah. Okay I should stop while I’m ahead, catch ya on the flip side.



March 30, 2017

It’s actually March 29th, Wednesday. I’m sitting here trying to get the blog squared away for the rest of the week. I tried to pull a chapter of The Telepathy Twins out, but it ended up just being horrible. Nothing’s wrong but I’m getting into a rut I think. It’s so stupid. Life is fine and dandy but something has to go wrong in my mind. Nah, not this time. I am literally fighting my mind a bit because while life is being all fine and dandy my mind is doubting itself trying to screw everything up. NO, NOT THIS TIME. I’ve been doing a lot of work. I’m trying to get my grades up, maintain the blog, clean the house, take care of my parents, work with my animals to make show goats out of them, I’ve also been trying to get over my anxiety, trying to really be closer to God and try new things. I guess it runs a person down. Now I know my mom is reading this, and saying you should take some of it off of your plate, and I should, and I think I will. The most time consuming thing keeping me from being able to do all these things is my mind, not this time. Geez man, I procrastinate, and my mind just makes up all these reasons why this thing I need to do is going to suck, and I don’t do it, or I do a bad job.

I had a pretty big week last week, but I need to bounce back. Maybe with experience this will come, but I want to be able to bounce back faster. When I got sick last week I totally shut down. I started eating bad foods, and when I would go to write, I just wouldn’t. Not anymore.

So the goals:

  1. Take care of my parents, and let them take care of me
  2. Drink lots of water
  3. Eat healthy
  4. Work out every now and then
  5. Walk the animals twice a week
  6. Have a social life
  7. Do things
  8. Do your homework
  9. Keep in touch with the people you love
  10. Do more of the things you love
  11. Have a relationship with God got damn it let your guard down to let Him in

Life is actually pretty great, but I think my mom is right, and this is going to sound crazy but the devil tries to get in our minds and screws everything up. It sounds crazy, but I’m crazy, and I’ve had a lot of crazy happen to me in my life. Nah boi, not today mind, not today satan, I got God, and I got a good life.

I literally took the day off today. It was great, I tried to get as much work done as possible without overexerting myself. Could not get everything done. Not enough hours in a day, What’s that one saying? Rome wasn’t built in a day. Oh, damn it’s 8:13pm oh crap it’s almost my bedtime!

Catch you on the flip side!

Oh, hey, thanks for the people who stuck with me, and keep liking and subscribing although I was feeling like poop. I appreciate it, if you made it this far, please like and subscribe for more.


Photography Friday #2


Awhile ago, my mom and I were out looking at livestock, and while we were on our excursion out, we found a beautiful place with rolling hills, and beautiful mountains behind it. We decided that one day we would have to go and look at the place.

We found the place during winter, and we went back in spring. Where I live it was raining more than I could describe, so the change between winter and spring was quite beautiful.

Our day started at 5am and we were on the road by 5:30. I brought my Nikon camera Brendon (More about my camera type and full name in my about tab). I must say Brendon is a camera that focuses more on the glow of a picture. When editing and taking a picture there are many aspects about the picture but one of them for example is contrast. You have the contrast which creates lines that make objects in a picture crisp and visible, and my camera I find has more of a glow quality, which means that when I take a picture it blends the lines, makes everything much brighter, and makes things look more as I call, angelic. Glow quality in a picture makes them lovely, but they’re not good for all types shots. I love photography but this camera was like a small investment to see if I really loved it or not, and now that I do, I want to invest in more, and a good camera, but I am still a beginner learning as much as I can about this art technique.

Anyways. We were on the road to only God knows where. Listening to my Pump Up Pop playlist (made for positive motivation, working out and good vibes), and my Good Vibes playlist (self explanatory purpose) on my Spotify. My spotify is ‘ispat1000’, I don’t care if this is a self promo because I have good taste in music. I listen to rock, pop, christian, country, christian rap, rap, hip hop, alternative, indie, disney music, classical music, contemporary music, screamo, classic rock, old 80’s and 70’s pop. I recently made a new playlist called ‘I was born in the wrong generation’ it has old music from classical music, to classic rock. I’m still in the process of making it, but I think it’s pretty dope. I want to listen to more R&B, and hip hop to be able to relate to my generation more, but I need people to drop some artists in the comments.

An hour into driving, screaming the lyrics to “Edge of Seventeen” by Stevie Nix. We passed by this one orchard where I screamed pull over. We got a nice road shot. Normally when I take pictures its out in the mountains, where I can get in the back of a pickup truck and take pictures. But this was more of a visible picture so my mom told me to get in the truck and put my head down. It was super funny. I took this picture of my feet to remember this stupid moment with my amazing mom.


Eventually as we started driving we found another almond orchard, where I live they’re not that hard to find. When you find an almond orchard in the middle of nowhere you have to take a photo shoot. So I took some pictures of the blossoms, but the best part about it was I got the dew on the blossoms (which is now my home-page picture).


I also started posing in the middle of this little abandoned road. Where my mom took some pictures of me and proceeded to ask “Are you going to look at the camera?!” I did not.

Nope, did not look at the camera.

We kept driving and I don’t entirely remember everything but we just kept getting some amazing shots.

The rolling hills and the silhouettes of the mountains were absolutely beautiful.


Towards the end of our adventure my Mom spotted a red tailed hawk sitting on top of one of the orchard tops. She turned around and told me to get in the back with my camera ready. I had no clue what was going on for a bit, but then I caught it. The red tailed hawk. It was beautiful. I only wish my camera could have captured it in better quality. It is one of the crowning jewels to my photography.


All of these shots can be found on my instagram thatgirlissie. I post pictures every time I publish a blog post. Gradually as I edit those pictures, they are showing up there if you want to see more of my photography.

Thanks for reading, please like and subscribe for more. If you can give me tips for photography and names of artists that you love so I can find more music.

I hope you have a good live, and a amazing Friday.

Good Vibes=Good Life

Music Monday #2

March 11, 2017

I am way too excited to write this, way too excited.

Hello you beautiful human beings and welcome t my second ever Music Monday. Today I am finally reviewing Ed Sheeran’s new album Divide. I listened to nothing but this album for a few weeks. My top favorite songs are:

  1. “What Do I Know?”
  2. “Galway Girl”
  3. “Barcelona”
  4. “Biba Be Ye Ye”
  5. “Happier”

I can adore every single one of those songs, but you probably wouldn’t read all of that so I am going to review my top five starting from number five, kinda like a countdown.

Note: I have never been a hard core Ed Sheeran fan before this album I’ve only know the songs “Photograph”, “Don’t”, and “Thinking Out Loud” by him. Now I’m willing to say I’m a part of his fandom, and I can’t wait to see where his music goes. I describe him as a sit down play guitar, and sing kind of performer but you need one of those in your life.

5. “Happier”, this song is one of Ed Sheeran’s signature sad, slow songs, with only him and his guitar. This song is about his ex being with a new man and about how she’s happier with him. He mentions that his friends claim that he will feel that sort of happiness again, but he says he was happier with her. It’s that hard in between time when you have to move on, but you can, and the other person that you cared about so much has already moved on without you. It’s a lovely song, if we’re being honest it sounds a bit like “Stay With Me” by Sam Smith. But I love the sound, it’s peaceful.

4. “Biba Be Ye Ye” I love singing, and it is so hard to sing this title. It sounds and feels very original and as a person that loves to dance, this song makes me want to move. It’s about I don’t know, absolute nonsense. He talks about basically being hungover and not being able to remember what happened last night. I don’t know, I love it. It also talks about how when you’re honest with yourself sometimes life sucks, but that’s okay because when you live, life can be great.

3. “Barcelona” by God I love this song. I cannot listen to this song without dancing, this song is my true weakness. He uses his voice in a different way to create a cool intro, then he just sings about living it up in Barcelona. It’s so upbeat it’s amazing I don’t know what to say. The instrumental has a sax, and I just love sax, sax is like the way to my heart. I have a friend that plays sax but that is besides the point. The best part of the entire song is when this acoustic british male starts speaking spanish. I know I am a gringa, but I can speak spanish very fluently but oh my gosh his spanish speaking is hilarious. I love Ed Sheeran.

2.”Galway Girl” Wow, I, I love this song. It really shows some of his roots, and uses a fiddle, and I loves me some fiddle too. I want to be that Galway girl, damn. I always randomly break into song slinging the intro. I find it funny when he tries to rap, it’s funny with his accent, but I love it. It’s adorable. I listened to him play this song live and it was so good. For a guy playing a fast song with different instruments, it was amazing. He kept up with his rhythm so well with his guitar and his voice. Songs always sound different live, and over video and it was amazing.

1.”What Do I Know?” This song is definitely my favorite. It reminds me of “Castle On the Hill” I didn’t consider that song in the my top five list because it already came out the month before. This song give the best vibes, and shares fantastic value that I think we often forget just love, understanding, positivity. It actually gives me goosebumps when I listen to it. I’ll probably make a Quotes Wednesday out of the chorus.

Comment below what your favorite type of music is, and your current favorite song, if you’re anything like me your favorite song changes a lot.

I could always do a cover video if you would like, I can kinda play guitar, piano, and sing a little.

Catch ya on the flip side!

Man was I determined to stay up past 8:30pm tonight.

Good day everyone! I sound like Joey Graceffa… I hope your day was good, mine was fantastic. If you care to hear about it, read on.

The day started at 5:30am… on a Saturday. I woke up early and eager (well, somewhat happy) looking forward to this photoshoot my Mom and I were going to go on. Wow, it was fantastic. I think I finally have the right stuff to change up the blog for spring! The trip was so much fun. It involved a lot of screaming “PULL OVER!” for this and that, but it was totally worth it. Some of it also involved riding in the very back of the pick up truck just to get the right shot. I remember I asked my Mom if she could take a picture of me. She agreed to, so I hopped into a position. “You’re not going to look at the camera?” she asked. I most certainly did not. In the end we got a lot of good pictures, one of which was a perfect high quality picture that my Mom took of me up close… with three chings. I looked fantastic. As usual. Getting to that scenic destination at first light was key, and it made all the difference in the world.

We listened to a lot of good music. I almost died when “Highway to Hell” came on. My Spotify is ispat1000 and I have such diverse taste, I am what my friends call me “Band Trash”.

I had a great time with my Mom, and for waking up so early I was doing just fine. We got home around 10:00am. When my father eagerly put us to work doing things around the house. I swear most of our ‘family bonding’ is normally found when we’re working.

With an hour and 3o minutes to spare I decided to get ready for my bestie JoJo’s ‘party’. Dude, I know you’re reading this, that was not a party, but it was the dopest hang out ever thanks bro. I got ready, and was honestly looking good. Now, I hang out with a lot of guys, and I am most definitely the short one of the group. I get picked on alot for it. But, that’s friendship. So, JoJo’s dad got in on it, and told me he got a special vegetarian pizza, and some salad for me, so I would grow. JoJo, tell him I said thanks for looking out for my health. Long story short I stuffed my face with meat lover’s pizza. We mainly hung out in JoJo’s garage which is a pretty dope hang out. Pool table, TV, video games, punching bag, lots of chairs, karaoke, and we had a speaker.

I learned how to play pool. I had no idea how to play the game, so I went up against my friend Victor who sort of knew how to play the game, and I won. I will forever rub that in his face, because that’s our friendship.

We watched Suicide Squad. Everyone had watched it except me. I didn’t cry. No way I was gonna cry in front of the guys! But I really liked it. We played more pool, drank a lot of soda and next thing you know it’s almost 11:00pm. So we sneak in a little karaoke for the road, then we part ways. But, I wasn’t about to leave without a polaroid.

In all honesty today was one of the best days that I’ve had in awhile, and I’m so blessed to be able to have them.

If you feel like it, like, and subscribe for more, it would make my day!

Hope you have a good life, and catch ya on the flip side!

The weather has been nice too, in fact today I somehow managed to have a fantastic day at school, walk my animals and clean the pen (which in fact is hell), do my homework, and finally  I worked out, and now I’m sitting down and writing this! I am so productive. Not to mention it’s past 8:30pm and I am still awake!

Soccer season is over, and I am supper sad about that. Normally in gym class we work out in the weight room twice a week, but we’re not gonna be in the weight room for two weeks! And over that extended weekend I had last week, I ate a lot. Of. Crap. So I really needed to cleanse myself of all of it, and I lost motivation to work out for awhile and I actually did!

Music Monday #1

Happy Monday everyone! Said no one ever. Monday sucks, but what doesn’t suck is music. Music is the soundtrack of our lives. You listen to music in one ear bud and go about your day, and everything just has a certain vibe, and you feel more alive. In our playlists you can find the evolution of us, and I have been a hard core, band trash, music loving freak for about three years now.

Spotify: ispat1000

I have 5 playlists all with over 200 songs, and I am constantly updating them.

Now to talk music!

I have been into Hey Violet lately. They ar the band that sings “Guys My Age” All my friends know I’ve been raving about them so, so much. All of my friends know I talk about them way, way too much. Their old stuff is Pop Rock, and I love it. But if we’re talking about their new stuff, “Brand New Moves” is so good, and I have found that this band is so good at playing songs stripped.

Let’s talk about The Chainsmokers. Holy crap The Chainsmokers. The Chainsmokers released their new song “Paris” Not to long ago, I think last month actually. I just found that this song gave me the best good vibes. It made me think wanderlust, and made me super calm. Ugh it’s so cool. But the have released about six remixes so I am going to review them. And then review the new music video.

The Chainsmokers – Paris (Pegboard  Nerds Remix)

I am not a fan of this one. This remix is my least favorite. It starts out with vocals almost sounding like a wedding song, band then it has this weird beat drop and complete transition into this sound that is nothing like the intro of the song and nothing like the original, I think this remix is all over the place and annoying, but that’s just me.

The Chainsmokers – Paris (LOUDPVCK Remix)

I like this one. The original “Paris” song is something hard to remix and doesn’t give many bits and pieces to remix but I feel like these people did a good job. Especially in the chorus, it feels like something that you can dance to, but not particularly, it’s got more of a remixed tone that you would use in the background of a travel video, or you would play in the car for good vibes.

The Chainsmokers – Paris (Jewelz & Sparks Remix)

They use the original intro with a bit of a twist, which I like because it doesn’t give away too much. They add a nice beat, and you can tell the song is slightly sped up. The bridge is interesting. I like it. Chorus is definitely made for dancing, especially more hip hop dances, and dances that incorporate more footwork to a deeper beat. But this song always makes the original song more alive while still keeping the good vibes.

The Chainsmokers – Paris (VINAL Remix)

I like the intro, and it uses what in the original song is the final bridge to make the intro. The build up is original but still ties to the song. The song is pitched in a higher tone. Definitely better for dancing in my opinion. I’m not a fan of this one as much as the other ones, but this one is definitely beautiful.

The Chainsmokers – Paris (Party Thieves Remix)

The intro is awkwardly sped up. It’s got more of a forest calm with whispering voices vibe. I’m not a fan, but let’s hear the chorus. The chorus has parts I like and don’t like, but overall I think the sound is unique. I may not like it that much, but It’s great to dance to.

Last, but not least.

The Chainsmokers – Paris (FKYA Remix)

This one is more contemporary, and I like it. It stays true to the original while being original in itself. This gives you shiver down your spine good vibes, this one is most like the original song. I really like it.

Now for The Chainsmokers “Paris” Music video

The music video has this girl sitting on a bed, with a fiery eye shadow. She looks depressed, and scared. As she wanders this home where she finds a bae window. Soon as she looks out it you get a view of the people on the ground. The house is floating she looks relieved, happy, and wanderlust. She seems so happy. She shouts out it, she leans out it, until finally she jumps. Halfway through she looks like she’s thinking that that was one hell of a bad idea, until she wakes up in her bed.

I hope you enjoyed my review of the new The Chainsmokers “Paris” remixes. If you find me tolerable and want more, please like and subscribe for more, until then…

February 19, 2017 8:36pm

Now that winter is here, as lovely and beautiful as it is, sometimes it has you boxed in, so after church I spent an hour calling up friends. I was on the phone for an hour with JoJo listening to him and his sister argue about what to watch on TV, and added to the conversation a bit. Until Andrea and I figured out we can hang out.

If you remember her, I talked about her a bit. I gave her some advice a few times. We decided to hang out, then found out we’re only seven minutes away from each other.

We talked for awhile threw a yoga ball at each others faces (long story) took Snap Chats, made mug cakes, watched Finding Dory, and we took Polaroid pictures.

It’s a thing I do. When people come over to my house I take a polaroid of them, or with them, and the n put it on the wall. At the end of the year you reflect upon all the good times and all the people that love you and I put them in my journal.

I bring my camera with me everywhere, but I still don’t have any good shots of anything. Everything is fodder and almond trees are starting to blossom. That’s how you know it’s spring where I live. When the almond trees start to bloom. But now that the almond trees were blooming, and everything was flooded, you’d think you can find something.

Tomorrow I have to wake up at three in the morning and take my Dad to the airport. The airport is so far away though, that if it isn’t raining, it would be the perfect time to go on a photography trip.

My Mom and I we’re wandering around, and we found this spectacular view. We wrote it down in case we could ever make it back, but so far we haven’t so maybe if we’re lucky tomorrow and the weather grants us, I’ll get some great spring shots.

I hope you have a good week. I am going to have a good week this week, because I have Monday off EYY.

Catch ya on the flip side!
