Leave Them All Behind: A Message on self-Esteem and Self-Respect and that stuff.

Billy Talent are a band that have helped me through so many hard times, and this post that I made on my DIY blog is really inspirational and I wanted to repost it here so that you guys can see it as well.

Little Miss Talent

Also a Billy Talent song. Yeah. Should I have said that in the title? forget that fact for a minute. this was inspired by a very similar post by supernaturalsnark on her HIP TO BE SNARK blog. Forget the fact that ‘Leave Them All Behind’ is a rock/punk/alternative song for a minute. Just let me explain the premise and relate it to life.

Haters. No other way to say this. You hate them. It’s a fact. Great life tip: DON’T WORRY ABOUT WHAT THEY SAY! Don’t let them bring you down because you know that their words mean nothing. you are beautiful. You are amazing. You are worth the time. Not theirs. Let the haters be haters.

Fake friends. We hate them too. Sometimes, we don’t even know that they are fake friends until they turn on us.

It’s easy to pretend until they turn their back on you

Ben Kowalewicz Quotes to Brighten Your Day

Ben Koawalewicz is an idiot. We all know that. He’s also 100% amazing. He has such a unique voice! Although he is getting older, so maybe they should stop performing ‘This Is How It Goes’ because he is going to break his vocal chords if he keeps screaming like that. Here are some of his best and stupidest quotes to brighten your day!

“Well what else do you do when you’re in jolly old England than go on a search for a teapot? –

Then This Happened….

  • Fuck the Da Vinci Code! It’s the teapot code.
  • In Hollywood I would have found the last teapot and it would be falling off the shelf in slow motion and I would have dove and caught it and we would have walked away in slow motion with you know, hands in the air, high fiving each other.
  • Art doesn’t always mirror life and life’s hard sometimes.

Other quotes from the 2006 II tour in Europe….

  • Busy day, lots going on and for the last interview I decided, you know, to flirt with the microphone.
  • Nothing says inspiration like a plane flying over your head while you’re playing.
  • Lesson one: If you’re ever in a beautiful cathedral, take your hat off!
  • Just when you think that you thought that the guys in Billy Talent partied and did coke and had sex with all these hookers, we actually talk about architecture and, eh…history.
  • You get bored on the road and even a bottle, of water can be fun, if you’re bored enough.
  • So after Humpfest 06, it was time to play our rock show.
  • I feel like Ashton Kutcher on Punk’d!
  • Now there’s no *beeping* way in hell I’m gonna go over because I’m a little afraid of animals.

 

Just some other quotes….

If the music doesn’t move you,
how the hell is it supposed to move anyone else?
– Ben Kowalewicz –

Thank you for still believing in the power of rock and roll music.
– Ben Kowalewicz –

Music are the bookmarks of your life
– Ben Kowalewicz –

Ben: „I miss lazy sunday afternoons, with the windows open, … playing and petting my dog …
Oh and my fiancé“
– Petting you’re fiancé? –
Ben: „Petting my fiancé! Over the clothes of course!“

Ben: One word to convince somebody? I would use two words and I’d say because it’s awesome.
Jon: … that’s three words.
Ben: Shit!

Interviewer: So, where did you guys meet?
Ben: We met in a gay chatroom.
Aaron: The only one in Ontario. No, seriously, we met at a Talent show.

I heard I’m a gay heroin addict, which is awesome, people just create things in their heads about us. I don’t care my friends and parents know who I am so I don’t have to justify anything to anybody.
– Ben Kowalewicz –

Ben: Goodbye ghost

Ben: It doesn’t smell like mold, or puke, and there’s no pubic hair on the pillow …

Ben: I’m going to eat fruit now so piss off Bye!

Interviewer: How did you lose your virginity?
Ben: With my first girlfriend when I was 17 and the floodgates have been open ever since.
It was awful and weird and terrible.

– And in one word, Billy Talent? –
Ben: Brothers

Interviewer: Pre gig rituals?
Ben: We all give each other handjobs into a cup and take a sip from it.

Interviewer: Favorite country?
Ben: Canada.
Interviewer: Favorite food?
Ben: Canadian bacon.

Ben: Life is too short, so remember to have fun okay,
and be the best person you can possibly be!

Interviewer: What can we expect from Billy Talent next?
Ben: WORLD DOMINATION! – laugh –  …
We’re working on a new record.

Ben: How do you say „slut“ in german?
Audience : Schlampe!
Ben: What? I can’t hear you! … Schlampe?
Well, the next song is about a very big Schlampe!

Believe it or not, there is a punk rock band on Warped Tour.

#StudySaturday: The Simple Stuff

For the first #StudySaturday, we will cover the more simple stuff. Like tips that actually work for most people. Hopefully, I can get us through the school year!

This is a series that will cover all sorts of helpful study tips and hacks for the school year.

Tip 1- Schedule Your Time

Schedule your time. It allows you to keep on track and divide your time accordingly, that way you can take appropriately sized breaks. For my schedule, I have half an hour to finish homework, then a half hour break, followed by an hour of any studying that needs to be done, broken up in the middle by an episode of BTV, or as they are more commonly called, the Billy Talent Vlogs. If you divide your time and take structured break, you are less likely to overload your brain.

Tip 2- Comfy Clothes

Wear clothes that you are comfortable in. If nothing is scratching at you or too tight or if there’s nothing on your wrist, you are more likely to focus on the task at hand. Sweatpants and tank tops are the ideal.

Tip 3- Food

You need to eat while studying. Keep a healthy snack close by like carrot sticks or in my case, some sliced peppers. Anything healthy that you enjoy eating. Prepare before you study and keep them close by so that they are within reach when you need to eat without leaving your seat.

Tip 4- Be Preapared

If you need to have certain things with you for certain subjects, make sure you’ve gathered everything before you start. If you don’t need to get up and walk back and forth to get things from your schoolbag, you are less likely to get distracted.

Tip 5- Reward Yourself

Set a reward for when you are finished studying. It can be anything from going to see a movie with friends or snuggling up in a blanket with some hot chocolate to read a book. Or re-read. If you set a small reward for yourself at the end, it motivates you to get the shit that you need to finish done.

I hope that you enjoyed the first #StudySaturday. Please follow my blog and like my posts to encourage me to keep sharing my ideas with you guys! Please enjoy your day and I will see you later!

4 Reasons You Should Get Yourself A Planner

Planners are a great way to stay organized, especially during the hectic school year, but here are four other reasons from Paige at Currently Lately!

Currently, Lately

Recently I came to the conclusion that there are two types of people out there: the ones who love planners and the ones who hate them. I’ve been on both sides of this spectrum, so I understand why there are a lot of people who dislike the idea of keeping a planner. But now that I’ve committed to using one, I genuinely can’t imagine ever going back. Have you ever heard someone say their planner is their whole life? I bet you they weren’t exaggerating. I’ve only regularly kept a planner for about six months now, but I can tell you that it’s pretty much become my life.

Anyways, if you’re someone hates planners, these are a few reasons why you might want to reconsider your stance. And if you’re someone who loves planners, hopefully you’ll be able to relate to some of my experiences.

#1: “I would do it but…
