Blogspiration #3

Blogspiration is a new weekly meme hosted by GrowingUp YA and Saz101. Where inspirational quotes/pictures/videos are posted to bring a little creativity or conversation into the blogging world.


My Blogspiration posts are a bit erratic. There's no formula to what inspires me each week and I've felt a little bad for skipping the last couple of weeks, but I couldn't come up with the perfect post. If it wasn't perfect, it wasn't going to be posted. This week I found that perfect post.

A quote my sister and I came across while cruising an Etsy store (This one!), that just called out to me.




Life  isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...
 ...It’s about learning to
 Dance in the Rain


(p.s. I realise that picture is of Troy and Gabriella
 (aka. High School Musical) but it fit so well)

    1. I felt sort of bad using that photo because it's from HSM3 and I still haven't watched it yet, but I loved the first 2 movies.

    2. Oh really? HSM3 is a very interesting little creation. It's got all the kitschyness of the first two, but then there's always this really obvious (we got a budget for this movie) feeling to it because the sets are really fancy and flashy and there's also more of them.

      The music seemed a bit more explosive too. That probably doesn't make sense but it just felt...bigger? Everything felt bigger and grander.

      My favourite song from it is "The Boys Are Back", it's very adorable.

    3. I'm going to have to look into seeing it soon then. I'll probably have to watch the first 2 again to refresh my memory on all the little details, but I can't say that'll bother me :P

    1. I get in strange moods sometimes when I feel like dancing in the rain is the best thing to do in the whole wide world. It's pretty fun :)

    1. It just fit so well and they're pretty cute together, even if they're not perfect for each other.

    2. You mean Gabriella and Troy, or Zac and Vanessa?
      I want to smoosh them together like Barbie and Ken dolls :P

      Delete
    3. Troy and Gabriella...I don't really care about Z&V in real life.
      I always liked my Ken doll better than Barbie...probably because I had Shaving-Fun Ken and it was more fun to shave him than to re-dress Barbie. I know that sounds strange, but it's true.

    4. *snort* my mind's going nasty places with you shaving Ken... like *WHERE* was he shaveable? *hides*

      Delete
    5. OMG, SARAH! Corrupting my innocent mind! You could only shave his face! Although, he's probably like Barbie below the waist: pretend plastic underwear fused to their bodies with the words 'Barbie' printed all over the place...I wonder if Ken liked Barbie's name printed to his arse?

      Now there's a sentence I never thought I'd ask.

    6. OMG I had a shaving fun Ken too, and he was epic awesome. He had the dreamiest hair. And he was the only young Ken I had. The other one I had was like a dad in his 40s with plastic hair (he always reminded me of the dad in 7th Heaven) and then one that I inherited from Saz101 that had real boy parts and I didn't care for that. He also had plastic hair and a really smarmy look on his face. Like he felt he was better than everyone else because of his REAL boy parts and he was so manly he didn't need to worry about chafing. Not that as a 7 year old I thought much about chafing, but it was part of his air of smugness.

      Shaving fun Ken was epic. Except that something went wrong because he was always only half scruffy. But his hair was seriously cool.

    7. I'm a little concerned he had real boy parts. I didn't think Barbie and Ken would go there.

  6. Oh, Kim, I love this Blogspiration post. It's so relevant (literally!) since I'm at the beach for summer break and it's raining like crazy. Other people would have been pissed but I went out with my teammates to swim, throw a football around, eat out, and have fun. It's really just making the most out of any situation!

    Once again, thanks so much for this. It made me smile! Have a great week. :)

    1. Käthe, I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I'm crazy jealous of your beach break, even with the rain, hope you're enjoying yourself.

      Thanks for stopping by.
