5.0 out of 5 stars My Amazon Music Membership Encouraged Me To Listen To This, December 11, 2016
This soundtrack of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them; Original Motion Soundtrack (2cd deluxe edition) by James Newton Howard is fine to listen to if you have previously enjoyed watching the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them (due to such tracks as track 16 Newt Says Goodbye to Tina/Jacob’s Bakery). This collection is also good to listen to if you are an eclectic music listener (due to the influences of classical music within this collection).

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This movie titled Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is a film that my husband and I found meaningful to watch. There is an all star cast featured in this film and one of the themes that I noticed in the movie is how people are often more than what they seem on the outside. I also like how the film touches on how friendship andor alliances can change a person for the better (such as the case when the characters of Newt Scamander, Porpentina Goldstein, Jacob Kowalski, and Queenie Goldstein end up joining forces for a common cause).

5.0 out of 5 stars Encourages Me To Make Friends With Part of My Taboo True Nature, December 11, 2016
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This kindlebook of Discover Your Writing Self: 31 Days to Deeper Understanding of Who You Are as a Writer Kindle Edition by Andi Cumbo-Floyd touches on continuing to write even when a person is aware of any judgment that they may bring upon themselves for doing so. The author gives an example from her own life and explains why she writes at least 5 times a week and holding space in her life for writing. I’m glad that that Cumbo-Floyd also shared how she came to believe in herself regardless of how her writing turns out. This was important for me to get a glimpse of because I know that part of the real/true me is a sensual person capable of channeling that energy into writing. However, even creative writing therapy for me can get risky because I’m aware that a person like me is technically different from what others expect to be a passionate writer. Coming across this book was healing for me to find safe and healthy ways to own it. This is especially because I do acknowledge the people who have taken the time to look at my freestyle stories online. I have noticed that some of my freestyle writings online that have gotten the most views are the stories colored by my true sensual spirit coming through. I reluctantly admit that that it has taken me weeks to eventually figure out encouraging myself as a writer comes first and the journey of safely and constructively allowing my true sensual self to come out more easily follows (even though my own adoptive father encouraged me to be a writer around the time I was between 11-13 years old and even provided the environment that helped me become valedictorian in 8th grade).

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This collection of Walk Yourself Thin by Bob McElligott Jr. is a cheap kindlebook that I got more as an encouragement to myself to keep up a solid walking routine in the winter. The kindlebook basically also touches on some enhanced emotional well-being effects from the walking and getting someone to walk for emotional andor spiritual support (fortunately my husband sometimes walks with me for encouragement).

This music collection of Now That’s What I Call a Workout 2016 is a various artist collection that contains an array of greatest hits from various artists David Guetta, Nicki Minaj, Jason Derulo, Major Lazer, Pitbull, Maroon 5, Zedd etc. However, it helps to hear and enjoy the original versions of the multiple songs on this collection because it would enable the enjoyment of the mixed versions on this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dazzling 80’s Pop, December 11, 2016
I remember first hearing music by Martika around the time I was 9 years old with the songs I Feel The Earth Move and Toy Soldiers. I think one of the reasons why I enjoyed these songs is due to the romantic quality of these songs in the similar vein of some other songs that I first enjoyed around the time I was between 7-9 years old (Heaven Is A Place on Earth by Belinda Carlisle, Come Go With Me by Expose etc.). Fast forward to the year 2000 and I come across the song I Feel The Earth Move by Martika again because this song was featured on an Only Girls Music collection cd that I bought at a department store in the Darwin Australia area. Anyhow, I recently had an innocent dream where Martika was referenced and this indirectly influenced me to check out this collection of Toy Soldiers The Best of Martika. I was pleasantly surprised by some of the others songs that I found good to listen to on this collection such as Love Thy Will Be Done, Martika’s Kitchen, Safe In The Arms of Love etc. There are international editions of some of her songs on this collection such as what appears to be a Japanese fan version of Toy Soldiers. There is also a Spanish version of More Than You Know. I admit that I only know a few Spanish words even though I have been confused on multiple occasions as someone who should know Spanish so I would not know the lyrics to the Spanish version of More Than You Know (I’m an American born (Menominee Indian/Puerto-Rican)female who was adopted by an American born Mexican/Aztec Indian man and an American born French/Cherokee Indian/Caucasian woman who did the best they could for me but did not know much Spanish either).

I admit that listening to the music of Arianna Grande was an easy decision for me because I have previously enjoyed her songs Dangerous Woman, Into You, and Side to Side (feat. Nicki Minaj). An open mind helps to listen to this music because of the boldness of songs such as Let Me Love You (feat. Lil Wayne), Moonlight etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Concert Showing, December 11, 2016
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
As a Madonna fan since the time I was 14 years old,I found this Madonna Rebel Heart Tour very fun to watch with brilliant performances throughout. I especially liked that her tour performance opened with the Iconic song at the beginning of the concert tour showing. This song featured the vocals of Mike Tyson, Chance the rapper, and I noticed that some of the dancers were coming out in what looked to be samurai like costumes. Burnin Up, Vogue, True Blue, Deeper and Deeper, Like a Virgin, Candy Shop, Illuminati, Dree You Up. Unapologetic B, and Holiday are only some of the multiple songs that are featured in this nearly 2 hour concert show. Various celebrities come out during one of her songs and watching the show gave me an experience akin to almost feeling like I was at this concert.

This review is from: Emotion Side B (MP3 Music)
This music collection of Emotion Side B by Carly Rae Jepsen is perfect if you like pop/dance songs with the themes of love. What adds strength to this collection is the spirit of her singing voice which gives the songs a more upbeat feel.

This collection of Electrisized Festival Anthems feat. various artists has a upbeat vibe to many of the songs. There is a bold feel to many of the songs with such unique tunes as Medicine (Crew 7) by Kim Leoni and My Passion by Kris McTwain etc.

The Nanny Chronicles of Hollywood

5.0 out of 5 stars 411 on Nanny Careers?, December 11, 2016
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
The Nanny Chronicles of Hollywood Book by Julia Swales and Stella Reid is a book containing information such as the mention that people who vie to be nannies in Hollywood must undergo some unconventional means to sometime get the job. For instance, there is information included that an employer’s psychic may sometimes act as one of the people who influences the outcome of a nanny to be getting a job. Additionally, there is information suggested that sometimes the employers of nannies in Hollywood will not necessarily write off someone who has children when it comes to hiring a nanny, but they would want to know that this would not interfere with the prospective employee being there for their children. Employees without children are not necessarily in the clear either. There is information to imply that there are employers of nannies who would want an employee without children to not get too attached to their children andor cause the children to favor them over the parents. As a writer, I am glad to have came across this book especially as a way to help me understand a way of life different from my own background. I admit that my late adoptive mother tried to install a love of having children and caring for children by having me build my life around my younger siblings and whichever children that she took in from the time I was 10 years old until I was 18 years old. She even treated me as her own biological daughter even though it was clear to others in her family racially that I was adopted (my late adoptive mother was a Caucasian woman with Cherokee Indian and French ancestry). I have nothing against parents or children but the love of having children and being a mother that my adoptive mother tried to instill in me had just never passed down to me despite her best efforts to do so.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Discovered Her Music via radio and tv around the time I was 10 years old and, December 11, 2016
This review is from: Greatest Hits (MP3 Music)
I find this collection of Greatest Hits by Mariah Carey is worthwhile to listen to with my Amazon music membership (even with me already having purchased and reviewed her #1 to Infinity Collection back in July 2015) because there are some songs on this collection that are not on the Infinity collection; such as Butterfly, When You Believe (From The Prince of Egypt feat. Whitney Houston),Anytime You Need A Friend, Endless Love, Underneath The Stars, Make It Happen etc.). Of course, there are also Mariah Carey’s other well known classics on this collection that can be easily listened to online such as; Honey,Emotions, Fantasy, Dreamlover, Heartbreaker feat. Jayz, Sweetheart,Hero etc

    My husband and I recently went to the National Postal Museum in Washington D.C. this past Friday. The security to check items on the way to entering was efficient. The following are some of the multiple exhibits and monuments inside of the National Postal Museum; photo of navy personnel aboard the USS Boxer awaiting their mail, a live model of the de Havilland Plane, an exhibit of the Stinson Reliant aircraft, an exhibit showing “secret” postcards, photo of Postmaster Mary Katherine Goddard, Creating Postal Routes Exhibit, Early Rail Routes, and much more.  Additionally, entrance to this museum is free and super close (within walking distance)to the Union metro station.

    I actually had to come to this post office in Hyattsville, Maryland (listed under the Langley Park address on the USPS website) because of a package issue related to what I had ordered online from a seller. Fortunately, the employee at the counter helped me find the package in question in a timely and friendly manner. Additionally, I went on a Friday afternoon and my wait in line was pretty brief. This post office is also near an Aldi’s Grocery store for anyone who might want to grocery shop after leaving the post office.
