“It’s not about perfect. It’s about effort. And when you bring that effort every single day, that’s where the transformation happens. That’s how change occurs.”

Jillian Michaels

This quote speaks to me because it shows that no matter how hard something is, how far behind you are, you can always catch up as long as you put in the time and the effort. The portion of the quote ‘It’s not about perfect.’ reminds me that everyone starts out on equal ground, we only seem perfect because of the effort that we put into everything that we do. Anyone can do anything, as long as you want to put the effort in, as long as you keep on persisting.

Favorite Youtube Clip

I enjoy watching this clip because it combines real life situations with the fun of animation and cartoon characters. The clip shows the struggles, daydreams, and expectations of buying clothes with the added bonus of sarcasm and humor. It’s great when I need something to cheer me up, or something to help me wind down after a long day. Asides from the reality of the video, the animation and voice effects really contribute to a fun, entertaining video.

Meaningful Photo

This photo is meaningful to me because it shows that there can always be two sides to everything, good or bad, pros and cons. You never know whether you’ll be on the good, the bad or the in between, just remember that each path is a stone’s throw away. It only takes a little to go a long way, to create a lasting impact. The farther you want to go, the harder it it to get there, but keep at a steady pace and you’ll eventually be able to get there. I got this image from Google, but the book cover of a book I’ve read (Shadowhunters: City of Bones) gave me the inspiration.

Favorite Website

Book Series Recaps & Reviews is one of my favorite websites because it provides a clear format and wide database for searching up new books. The layout is very clean and concise, and it provides a detailed and descriptive review/recap of books. I like the fact that there are many different tabs that you can navigate to, some of which include a blog post about writing novels, or a convenient browsing system (you can choose to search a title/author or to browse by author series). Book Series Recaps is my go-to website for browsing books that I want to read, or if I’ve forgotten the plot of a specific book and need a refresher. I definitely use this website a lot, since I’m a total book worm.
