5 Movies That I Could Never Get Sick of Watching

We all have our movies we like and dislike. Then there are the movies that we could watch over and over and over again for like a week straight, am I right?!

  1. Harry Potter. Now I mean ALL of the Harry Potter movies. Me being a huge Harry Potter fan I have done several movie marathons and I’ve definitely seen all the movies more than 50 times. Now if you are not a Harry Potter fan that’s okay, but you don’t have to be a Harry Potter fan to love these movies! My favorite character out of the movies are Dobby and Hermione.  Dobby is just cute, charming and wins the heart of everyone! All Dobby wants is to help other elves become free and help his friend Harry Potter and his friends. Hermione is just this sassy, intelligent young girl trying to keep her two friends out of trouble. I love these movies and they are a great way to escape reality and enter the wonderful world of Harry Potter. Decide for yourself which is the best, click the picture below to watch all 8 trailers (All the pictures have movie trailers attached to them by the way!!)

2. Beauty and the Beast. As I said in my previous post, Beauty and the Beast is my all time favorite Disney movie and I’ve owned every version of the movie when released from the Disney vault. Belle has always been my favorite Disney princess out of all of them. She never lets the villagers get in the way of her dreams, and she falls in love with someone because of what he was made of on the inside. I also love all the little castle characters they are always so cute and full of life they were like my friends when I was a young girl. Such a beautiful movie!

3. Bring it On. Like I said in my last post I was a cheerleader in high school, and believe it or not we would watch the Bring it On movies ALL THE TIME! I’ve seen all of the Bring it On movies but my favorite has got to be the original one because of all the little quirks and sayings, however, I could still watch all of them over and over again! I’ve also done a few Bring it On movie marathon, and had a blast! They just bring back so many fun memories of when I was a cheerleader in high school and all the things we use to do.

4. Legally Blonde. I LOVE Elle Woods. She is one of my favorite inspirations when it comes to movie characters! She is full of sassy and she is fierce and even though she hits bumps in the road she never gives up on what she wants! She stays true to herself and does things in her own way to do what’s right not only for her but for others. Reese Witherspoon does an amazing job as portraying Elle Woods and I’ve seen this movie definitely over 100 times and I will never ever get bored of watching it on repeat. It’s a motivational movie to be honest because after I’ve finished watching the movie (both of them!) I feel like I can conquer my goals and dreams and no one can stop me! She also never let a guy tell her what to do, she made sure she found someone who will make her better as a woman and who will support her, I mean come on ladies who would want that! It’s a great message for women out there to know. So if you need a pick me up by a fierce lady I definitely recommend this movie!

5. The Hobbit Trilogy. I love the Lord of the Rings but I LOVE the Hobbit trilogy way more! I have watched this trilogy so many times I have lost count. I always put one of the three movies on while I’m studying as background noise. I honestly can’t come up with words to describe these movies. There is romance, there is adventure, there are also make you wanna cry moments, and there are also times where you just feel warm and fuzzy. It is a fantasy but it is definitely a wonderful trilogy that I would recommend to EVERYONE. There are also a few sexy dwarfs that I know my other ladies will appreciate!!

20 Facts About Me

Here are some random but awesome facts about myself!

1. I love scary horror films, particularly paranormal ones, demonic ones. Movies like The Conjuring 1 and 2, Annabelle, Crimson Peak, Mama, Carrier, Ghost Ship, Rite, Paranormal Activity (to name a few!). I have not found a horror film that really scares or freaks me out, but it doesn’t stop me from watching any and all scary horror films! But I also love the time of year when it’s acceptable to watch these scary movies and that is the month of October and Halloween (which is my favorite holiday!). I go on a 30-day scary movie challenge with anyone willing to try and it’s awesome! I also try to go to all the haunted house attractions around my area and you probably guessed it, I am the one in the front! Yes, it’s awesome! I honestly laugh more than anything because of the people I go with because they are all scared and screaming!

2. My left leg is 3 inches shorter than my right leg. Most people have a leg that is shorter than the other, but not as big as a 3-inch difference. The story that my father told me is that when I was young I was riding a bike and I had fallen down on my side. I apparently fractured my hip, but I was too scared to say anything. So because I didn’t say anything and I was still growing I screwed up my growth system as a child on my left side and leg. I don’t remember doing any of this. But in second grade I had major problems with pain and limping. It got so bad that I was taken to the ER. They did so many tests but they still couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me. Afterward, my second-grade teacher and I talked and she would give me a secret word she would use with me when she noticed my limping and it would remind me to fix it. When I was in middle school I was experiencing the same problems I was in second grade and we went back to ER. But they did a simple test that they did not do before. They put a ruler in between my legs and measure them and noticed the 3-inch difference. Finally, I got an answer but the only cure they saw was breaking one leg and shave the bone, or break the other leg and put a metal rod in it and crank it every month so the bone would grow. I choose the path to no pain, which the doctor then told me that then I would probably need hip surgery when I was around 40 years-old. Some to look forward too I guess.

3. My favorite time of year is fall. I mean seriously how can fall not be your favorite time of year?! The smells, the colors, the festivities, the holidays are all wonderful! The weather here in Wisconsin isn’t bad either! Cold enough to wear long sleeves and pants but warm enough not to need a jacket! I love feeling fuzzy and cozy, and just sipping on hot drinks while sitting outside. My favorite holiday is Halloween as well which just makes that time of year more fun!

4. I played the violin for over 10 years. I started playing in 3rd grade and my last year of playing was my senior year of high school. The only reason I had to stop this was because my younger sister wanted to play so I had to give her my violin. For the 10 years, I played I can say I struggled reading music but I was good! If someone would play a piece of music a couple of time for me I could play it with no problem after that. I ended up playing in competitions in middle school and high school and ended up going to state a couple of times winning 6 medals! Even though I struggled reading music, I loved playing the violin! I found it calming and the best part of my day during school.

5. I’ve seen 67 bands play in concerts. I LOVE music, and going to concerts for me give me such an amazing experience that I could only describe as toxic and addictive! The main types of music I’ve gone to concerts for is country and rock/metal. I’ve also seen a handful of bands more than once. Some country artists I’ve seen are Carrie Underwood, Hunter Hayes, Eric Church, Dirks Bently, Billy Currington, Joe Nichols, Rodney Atkins, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Julianne Hough, Keith Anderson and James Otto. Some Rock/Metal bands I’ve seen are Avenged Sevenfold (whom I’ve seen over 5 times!), Five Finger Death Punch, Slayer, Black Label Society, Get Scared, I the Mighty, Motionless in White, Of Mice & Men, Crown the Empire (seen 2 times), For All Those Sleeping, Korn, Three Days Grace, Theory of a Deadman, Seether, Rob Zombie, Megadeath, Halestorm (whom I’ve seen 3 times!), Twisted Sister, Van Halen, Stone Sour, New Medicine, Skillet (whom I’ve seen twice!), Hawk Nelson, Godsmack, Chevelle, Buckcherry, Anthrax, Saliva, Ratt, Dokken, Jackyl, Superchick, FLAME, Hollywood Undead, Pop Evil, Papa Roach, Breaking Benjamin, Alice Cooper, Warrant, Queensryche, Judas Priest, Lynard Skynard, Miss May I, Memphis May Fire, Pierce the Veil, Our Last Night, Falling in Reverse, 3OH!3, Yellowcard (whom I’ve seen twice!), WhiteChapel, Good Charlotte, and Tonight Alive. I’ve also seen Tech9ne, and StevieStone. Needless to say, I’ve seen a lot of concerts, and my list is only getting BIGGER!

6. My youngest brother has Autism, which allowed me to learn that I have a passion for helping people with disabilities. My brother is the youngest of 4 kids, and when he was 3 years-old he was diagnosed with Autism. When this happened it flipped my world upside down. At first, I was upset and didn’t know how I could ever love my brother. Then as my brother got older I learned how to communicate with him and I his personality started to shine. He is now 17 years-old and I couldn’t imagine my life without him! He is the funniest, most caring person I’ve ever met. I would do anything for him. I’ve also used my experience with my brother to help other families in the area by becoming a Line Therapist for people, children, and families and do therapy with people who are diagnosed with different types of Autism. In my senior year of high school, I held a fundraiser to raise money for local research on Autism. I do annual walks in my area to help raise awareness and research for people with Autism. The only reason I have a major of Special Education is because of my brother have special needs. He has taught me so much that I want to help others with special needs and even their families. Below I’ve shared a video I made for my fundraiser I put together my senior year!

7. My favorite movie that I have always loved is Beauty and the Beast. It has been that way since I was a baby. My grandmother would always tell me that when she would watch me she would pop the VHS of Beauty and the Beast in. Once the movie was over I would start crying and screaming. The only way I would stop crying and screaming until the movie was played again. She would have to watch Beauty and the Beast over and over again for HOURS! That never changed as I got older. Every time the movie Beauty and the Beast has come out of the vault I’ve bought it immediately! Even the remake I saw three times and bought it immediately after it came out! I love it! I love it! I love it! I can’t express it enough. Belle has always been my favorite Disney “princess” as well, mainly because we look so much alike. The grandmother that use to watch me when I was younger and I use to scream at until she replays my movie, died this past summer. I got to go to the hospital and say goodbye before she died, and when I knew I was going to say goodbye I went out and bought a new Beauty and Beast shirt in memory of her and wore it when I went to see her and say goodbye. Whenever I wear that shirt I remember her and her kindness for me and my siblings and the times we had with each other. Love you, Grandma, ❤

8. I dislike summer. I hate being hot and sweaty at the same time. I am okay with being sweaty, for example when I’m working out that’s fine. But when it’s 90+ degrees and humid here in Wisconsin, let me tell you IT SUCKS! I don’t like it. Don’t get me wrong I love summer for being able to go out and do things in nature and with people. It allows for more opportunities to do things than say the snow does. But I still hate it! All I do is work my summers away and get ready for another school year I normally don’t do anything fun or go on any fun trips because I am either working or too broke to go on a big fun trip. So summer you suck!

9. My favorite color is pink, and my least favorite color is purple. If you have ever watched the movie Mean Girls you know that on Wednesdays we wear PINK, not purple. Now to me, purple is like the white and pink is like black. Pink and purple don’t go together in my mind! So pink all day every day, honestly, my wardrobe consists of black and pink, no joke!

10. I all kinds of music! As you saw above I’ve been to a lot of concerts in my life and I’m only 26! But even though I’ve been to a lot of concerts I don’t have a specific genre of music I love or hate. I grew up listening to the 70’s and 80’s hair metal bands thanks to my father. So bands like Ozzy, Quiet Riot, AC/DC, Judaist Priest, Queen, KISS, Twisted Sister, etc. My dad was a huge KISS fan so I listened to a lot of KISS. But since I was born in the 90’s (the best decade EVER!), once I got old enough I started to listen to pop music. Pop music like Britney Spears, Christina Agularia, NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, Now That’s What I Call Music Vol #, Spice Girls, No Doubt, 98 Degrees, Pink, etc. But once I got older and into middle school, I started listening to more kinds of music. I started listening to new rock like Avenged Sevenfold and I started listening to punk/punk pop like Simple Plan, Good Charlotte, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, etc.  It was also in middle school I heard my first country song, which was Concrete Angel by Martina McBride. So after that, I also started listening to country music. So as you can see I had a ton of different music I was listening too. Now during this time, I was also playing the violin so I also loved listening to classical music, and even though I don’t play anymore I still love listening to classical music to this day. I only listened to one rap artist and that was Eminem and I’ve followed him to this day. Now bring you up to speed today, Avenged Sevenfold has been one of my favorite bands since I’ve started listening to them. But I mainly listen to rock, metal and country music. Bands like In This Moment, I Prevail, Beartooth, A Day to Remember, Miranda Lambert, Good Charlotte, Miley Cyrus, Set It Off, Motionless In White, and Kelsea Ballerini to name a few.

11. I love football! I am a football girl born and raised! I grew up watching football on Sundays and loved it! And even to this day, I watch football religiously on Sundays during the seasons. My boyfriend is not a huge sports person but he knows that Sundays are my days with the tv so I can watch football. Of course being from Wisconsin I am a DIE HARD Green Bay Packer fan!! I’ve been to the Hall of Fame, Practices, and I’ve only been to one game in my life (so far!) but I love them through and through! GO PACK GO!

12. I love the sound of water. Whenever I need to get away from the city I always go to state and national parks to go hiking in nature. I always hike until I find a body of water that I can find a place to sit and relax near, to meditate and calm myself. This article by the Huffington Post explains Why Water Makes us Feel Calm.

13. I am a loyal and die-hard Harry Potter fan. I am a loyal Hufflepuff. I was a young child when the Harry Potter books were published in the 1990’s. I remember reading the books and desperately waiting for J.K. Rowling to finish writing the next book! I’ve read all 8 (I am including the cursed child book too!) books and went to all midnight showings of 8 movies. I also went to the midnight showing of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which was amazing by the way and I can’t wait for the second one to come on in 2018. I’ve read the Fantastic Beasts book, and Quidditch through the ages as well. I have and play the Harry Potter Scene It game all the time and am hard to beat if I say so myself. I am always up for a Harry Potter movie marathon and have done it several times. I have my own collection of Harry Potter character POP! figures and wands I’ve made and bought. My (planned) graduation present for myself is to visit Harry Potter World in Florida and go nuts! If I had to choose out of the 7 books which one was my favorite to read it would be Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. And if I had to choose out of the 8 movies which one was my favorite it would have to be Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets all because of dear Dobby, he is my favorite character!

14. I’ve always wanted a dog and I love dogs, even though I may be allergic to them. When I was growing up we mostly had cats because we couldn’t have a dog because of my younger brother. So I’ve grown to dislike cats (a lot!) and love dogs! There are many dogs that I would love to have but I do have a top 5 that I would love to own: Chocolate Labrador, Austrailian Shepard, Weimaraner, Golden Retriever, and Viszla. Honestly, I wouldn’t care what kind of dog I get, I just want one!

15. I’ve been a bowhunter since I was 11 years-old. I’ve always loved the outdoors since I was a little girl. I would go hunting with my dad all the time, and I would go up to my grandfather’s cabin and spend time camping and building campfires (even thought I was horrible at it) all the time. Once I was old enough I took the hunter safety course for bow hunting and BARELY passed (only because I second guessed my answers), but nonetheless, I passed! And every opening weekend of bow hunting season I’ve gone hunting. I have yet to get my own deer but there is still plenty of time for me to get one!

16. Is one of my favorite numbers because I was born on January 19th. Believe it or not, my birthday digits are all nines and ones. I was born 1-1-1991. My other favorite number is 97 because my great grandmother died when she was 97 years-old. She was one my favorite people in my life when I was younger and I will always hold her close to my heart! She passed away in 2001. It was very difficult time for me but I will never forget her in many ways. Her age she died in (97) and wearing different floral pattern clothing (which she made me wear all the time when I was little at her house and when I went to church with her). I also always have a picture of her and I and a rosary in my office in memory of her. I love you, great-grandma! ❤

17. One of my favorite things to do is a workout! I love dancing, strength training, and (some) cardio! I’ve done some CrossFit training, I also use to be a cheerleader in high school and I also use to play volleyball in middle and high school. I loved cheerleading in high school it gave me so much happiness and it made me super fit I remember eating anything I wanted and never gaining a pound! I also enjoyed volleyball very much as well, our team wasn’t very good though but I still love and enjoy the sport very much. Because it’s such an intense hobby I’ve turned my hobby into a profession by becoming a Beachbody coach! I have done Autumn Calabrese’s 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme fitness programs along with Hammer and Chisel, I’ve also done the famous Shaun T’s Insanity, Cize, and Insanity Max: 30. I have also grown to practice and love doing yoga as well! It all makes me feel amazing! So why not turn something I love to do into a profession I can do on my own terms, and the company has great products! Now don’t get me wrong I don’t only use Beachbody products I use other products as well (which I will disclose and write reviews on in later posts). I’ve grown to love and learn more and more about different ways to stay fit and healthy like meditation, yoga, and CrossFit. These three practices are ones that I’ve only recently discovered and learned about in the past 5 years, so I’m still learning and pretty new with them. But everything, in the end, keeps me healthy!

18. One of my biggest vices is soda and candy. It is a horrible vice and it’s something I struggle with giving up in order to get my dream body. It’s a toxic happiness of sugar that I love!! My favorite soda is Mountain Dew (which is probably the worse) and my favorite candy would have to be Skittles (the purple bag) and my favorite chocolate is anything with milk chocolate and caramel! But if you are with me jump on the bandwagon of struggling of letting them go in order to be healthy.

19. I am a secret traveler at heart. I want to travel to so many places throughout the world all because of the history I’ve learned in school. I dream of traveling to all the original 13 colonies, France, England, Italy, Germany, back to Montreal, Quebec, each Ocean, New Zealand, and Australia. I know there has got to be more places I would love to visit but these are my main places I would love to travel too before it’s too late. I’ve only traveled to Montreal and Quebec when I was middle school but I would LOVE to go back because I don’t remember much of it and I had a disposable camera so none of my pictures were saved.

20. My hair is my favorite thing about myself. I love the color it has all by itself. I love it long but the longer it is the harder it is to handle. Believe it or not, I have very thick hair (thank you dad!) So I have to have it thinned and cut on a monthly basis. My hair is like makeup to other girls. If my hair is not to my liking and I can’t get it done just right I don’t go out in public. As silly as that is it’s true. I also love the way my hair feels, I take really really good care of it and straighten it all the time because it is really curly normally (which I also dislike). But I’ve grown to learn different ways to handle and tame the beast I call my hair.

10 Things that Make Me Awesome!

To help you all get to know me better I wanted to share 10 facts about myself that I think make me!

  1. I am obsessed with penguins! When I was 16 years-old I was in a job interview. The reason this job interview stood out so much was because I’ve had a lot of interviews in my time. So when they started the “normal” interview the questions I knew it was going well, until they asked me a question I’ve never been asked before. “What is your favorite animal and why?” At first, I was like “Did you really just ask me that?” After a few seconds, I regained myself and said, “Penguins. They waddle and always make people happy, and they are always ready for a party!” Ever since that interview I’ve been obsessed with penguins! And you may not believe me so let me list some of my penguin items for you:
    • I have over 40 penguins (majority of them have names)
    • I have a Christmas tree with penguin ornaments to cover it.
    • I have clothing (socks, shirts, pants, pajamas, costumes, undergarments, slippers)
    • I have Happy Feet 1 and 2, Mr. Poppers Penguins, Penguins of Madagascar Movie, along with a few mini-movies of theirs
    • I have a Penguin Love Blvd. street sign and a bunch of penguin drawings my old students have given me that I have hung up on my wall of fame.
    • I have penguin books of all kinds.
    • I’ve taught a whole penguin unit!
    • I also was born 27 minutes before National Penguin Day (coincidence I THINK NOT!)
    • Every summer on the last weekend before the school year begins I always visit a zoo or aquarium to see and visit my penguin family!
    • I have penguin figurines
    • Penguin bowling pin
    • Penguin Club Trading Cards
    • Penguin jewelry
    •  Penguin video games and board games

There are probably other penguin items that I am not remembering at this time but none the less I think you get the idea!

2.  I have been in school for almost 9 years! And no I’m not going to college to be a doctor either! I entered college in the fall of 2009 to become a teacher. I’ve known I’ve wanted to be a teacher since I could remember. I am majoring in two majors actually, Elementary grades 1 – 8th and Special Education cross categories. Now, this program with these two majors would normally take up to five years. However, with some bad advice and the discovery of my learning disability, it has now taken me around nine years. I’ll be graduating the program with my two degrees in the spring of 2018. I love teaching kids and always found happiness in it even on the bad days. My goal is to be teaching special education for around three years and then find a position teaching in any grades from 3rd through 8th. After teaching for around 30 years or so I want to have my own school and create a place for kids who can reach their full potential!

3. I am driven! I never give up on something I want. It may take me a while and a few tries but if I really really want something I will never take “no” for an answer and I will never stop until I can’t go anymore.

4. I am afraid of heights, but I love hiking up cliffs. I mean I am not a huge fan of them but I do not let my fear of it stop me from having fun on amusement park rides and hiking on cliffs. I try to be fearless.I was raised by a single parent, a.k.a. my father (who’s a badass!)

5. I was raised by a single parent, a.k.a. my father (who’s a badass!). When I was 17 years old my mother decided to leave my 3 younger siblings and my father. My father being the great and amazing man that he, is decided to step up and take care of us, four children. Almost 10 years ago this happened, my dad has now three daughters graduated from high school and my brother will be graduating next year. And all three daughters are in college and one of those daughters graduated college and is now on to grad school. My dad is an amazing dad and man who works his ass off for his children!

6. I love working with kids of all ages and talents. I’ve been working with children of all ages since I was a teenager. I’ve always loved hanging out and playing with children more than adults. I think it comes in handy at times, but it is especially useful since the career path I am going in allows me to work with children!I myself have a learning disability along with mental illness.

7. I myself have a learning disability along with mental illness. My second year in college I was struggling with school and having trouble retaining information. This was not something that was new, I had been struggling with these problems since 6th grade. I had finally reached a point in my school career where I couldn’t excel. I only had once choice and that was to get tested to see if I had a learning disability. I found out that I have Dyslexia. Dyslexia involves having difficulty in learning to read or interpret words, letters, and other symbols, but that does not affect general intelligence. This does not mean I can’t learn like everyone else because I can. Honestly, it just takes me a little longer for me to learn and remember something. I also struggle with depression and anxiety and have since middle school. As I grew older my depression and anxiety have gotten worse. Being older now, I have accepted that I suffer from this mental illness. I have taken responsibility in understanding my mental illness as best as I can, in order to live my daily life with this. I take mental illness very seriously because of how much it has affected me and my life. So with that being said, I continue to do research to help myself and others with different daily tasks and ways to control and live with mental illness. I feel that mental illness does not make you weak it makes you special! It makes you sparkle in a different way!

8. I love anything and everything about history, and hope to be a part of it one day! My minor is in history! I always think history is like a giant bedtime story, that you can read and learn about over and over. My favorite parts of history are all of American history, European history,  Egyptian history, crime in America history and war history. I struggle with remembering all the facts but I’ve taken classes on all of those areas in my lifetime and I love to read books about all of these events of history.

9. I am human, I am not perfect.I’m a believer. I believe anything can be accomplished by anyone, even if they do not believe it themselves. I can not tell you how many times I’ve failed at a goal of mine or failed to be consistent with things. But I always come back to my goals, I never give up because I know I’m not perfect! Sometimes my depression gets the best of me and when I fall off track and it makes giving up and coming up with excuses easy. But I am a believer that anyone can do anything no matter how many times it takes, no matter how many times they fail they can do anything they set their mind to!

15192744_1001674936611596_6817274218958852828_n

10. I’m a believer. I believe anything can be accomplished by anyone, even if they do not believe it themselves. There are days I feel like a failure, and that I don’t deserve something in particular, and that I could never get where other people are. Then there are days where I feel like I could do anything, and that I deserve the world, and that I could have what other people have. All I have to do is TRY! No matter how many times I fall off the wagon or come up with excuses it does not mean I can’t reach my dreams. Some of the most famous people of today and in history failed multiple times before they reached their dreams!

Welcome to my Blog

Hello everyone!! My name is Hannah Elizabeth Buckson. I live in Neenah, Wisconsin with my amazing boyfriend for the past four years. I am currently attending the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and studying elementary and special education with a minor in history.

 

I will be writing this blog and be offering services and advice about the things I find a passion for.  Things like yoga, fitness, crafts, travel, music, movies, and nature.

 

I am doing this for myself. I struggle with mental illness, specifically from depression and anxiety.  On a day to day basis, I struggle with these different mental illnesses and I  needed an outlet for my thoughts and things I learned. I know I am not the only one who struggles with mental illness. So with that in mind, I want to share my life and the adventures I go through in hope that someone may find inspiration and motivation to do the things they want and dream while struggling with mental illness.

I do most of my learning from reading books and articles from the internet. But I also experience many things through personal experience.

I started this blog to give myself an outlet to share my thoughts, experiences, adventures, and knowledge I’ve acquired and gone through. I have found that writing out my experiences and thoughts out either in a journal or on my blog, has helped me get through difficult times and happy times and has allowed me to reflect on things in my life.

I want to be known for my journey in life. How I go after my dreams no matter how my mental illness is affecting me on that day. I want you to be able to share your own journey whether it is dealing with mental illness, your journey with loving yourself, your journey with health and fitness. Whatever journey you are on I want help, motivate and inspire you to share and work on your journey.

I am very excited to create this blog for everyone to read. But I am most excited to create a place for myself and others where they can be comfortable to share whatever journey they are on!
