Top 3 Most Mundane Things on Buzzfeed

Inspired by this tweet (and facebook update with accompanying comment) :

Here are the most mundane of subjects featured in Buzzfeed articles according to me. I was going to do 10…but like, that’s a lot of effort. Don’t take it seriously whatsoever. In no particular order, here we go!

1.) This Teen Made A Spotify Playlist To End Things With A Guy And His Response Was Perfect

Should we feature all clever breakups? And his response was literally one song. WHAT A THRILL THIS HAS BEEN.

2.) This Mom Brought Her Son To Work, So He Dressed Up In A Godzilla Costume

My only response to this:

3.) This Person’s Way Of Carrying Pizza Is Being Called Offensive

This one is actually extremely upsetting. But it feels like it was published more for reactions and engagement. But hey, that’s the name of the game. Get it! However, still terribly mundane. Sure, you might have a split second reaction, but that reaction is nothing you haven’t had while out in public.

These article titles are links to Buzzfeed’s website with the pertaining article attached.

 

it’s august 1st, and i’m officially out of my studio…and mind!

Alright, first off, I know I’m weeks behind on Happy Hour, but I’ve got each week’s filmed-just not edited. Because I enjoy being well rested as best I can, full-time employment, and moving out of an office/studio….annnnd working on this “secret project” I’ve hinted around with on social media.

Well, here’s the T.

DJ K Yung  has invited me to host an hour long radio talk show on Flood 93! Which, you’ll be able to enjoy on air, or as a podcast (links to come) and I’m beyond thrilled. I feel like freaking Delilah or something. I’ll be recording live, or in one take, and the unedited audio will be available to listen to whenever you want, wherever you want; as a podcast!

Very excited to get back on the Happy Hour schedule again, and as always-if you ever need anything, I’m always here for you. You can submit any questions, concerns, comments even-anonymously to the Drunk Advice segment! See you all soon! ❤

Thanks for reading, watching, and soon for listening! I love ya’ll! ❤

Also, be on the lookout for some Happy Hour merch! Shot glasses anyone? Sweatshirt?! MMMMmmmmkaaay baiiiiiiiiiii.

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! LET’S GET SERIOUS FOR A MINUTE…

It’s my birthday officially in a few minutes. And to be honest, this year it’s making me anxious. As someone who doesn’t like to take things too seriously, I’m gonna be a little serious for a moment and share somethings that I think are important to realize. Many of which have been inspired by discussions with friends and/or family.

I’m going to be turning an age that when I was 8 I thought I’d have a family and kids, and all that jazz by now. I don’t. But here’s the thing, I know I’m no where near ready for that currently. And that’s fine. Don’t set those milestones to “check off” if they don’t feel right. Each story is different. (One of my friends said, “no one has their shit together.” Think about it.)

Success isn’t overnight. Or over many nights even. It can be over many many nights. Of worry, doubt, and defeat. But don’t let it get you down. Take that moment, feel those feelings. But then get back up and kick ass stronger and harder than before. I’m a firm believer in perseverance and attitude.

Spread joy, smiles, and laughs like crazy. It’s free. It’s contagious. And it always returns. Thank you all for supporting me and my YouTube channel, and our Happy Hours together over this past year. It seriously means a great deal to me that you watch them, and look forward to them, comment on them, share them, all of that. I see it. I love it. And I love you. I hope you’re all having a wonderful evening and an incredible Saturday ahead. Enjoy yourselves and your loved ones.

Love,
Cory Scott

INSPIRATION STRIKES, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT IS UP TO YOU

I know this is completely “off brand” but here we go. Fugget. Can that just be “my brand?” “Fugget?!”…it’s applicable to so many things.

ANYWHO…

I was working the other day, and had to run some deliveries and errands, when out of no where an open field caught my eye. I don’t know if it was the golden grassy (I won’t pretend to be agro savvy) or the scenic wooded backdrop. But I knew I needed to do a shoot with a friend (and fellow in town business owner!) and some of their product. We’d spoken about it about a year ago, and an urgency flew under my ass. Or was it a fire?

Calling her up on my way back into work, I frantically told her, “If I had the time, I’d stop in and we could hammer this idea out. But we’re gonna have to wing it. You in?!” So we chatted briefly about the details. You need to be ready by sunset. Open field. Let’s do this. The weather gave us a run for our money throughout the day, raining off and on. Thankfully it was absolutely perfect at the time we needed it. I was pleased with the results. And thankful for a friend who knows how hectic and urgent I can be, and with the talent to follow through!

The pictures are a result of collaboration amongst the following businesses:

Designs on the Boulevard (photography & home decor) & their blog.

Wirthy Treasures (furniture & props) & their blog.

Sometimes you just have to take the inspiration when it comes. Although, usually for me, it’s right before bed. And then I’m up for hours working on something and lose track of time. Maybe I’ll keep a journal on my night stand? How do you deal with inspiration? What inspires you?

Stay bright, love always,

Self-Imposed Confines & Lines

Self-imposed Confines & Lines. I think this is why some people love starting all over with a new blog, or a new account on something-myself included. It’s as if certain things we’ve worked on have started a life of their own. A certain identity. When really, we’re the ones who have breathed life into that work. So really, we can shatter those self-imposed lines and boxes. Greatness comes from outside your comfort zone. Perhaps I’m still restless today. Contemplated starting a “new blog” (only for a split second) so I could rant and personally vent these kind of things into it. But why not on this one? Just cause this one has my usual kind of content doesn’t mean I can’t spice it up with personal journal-like content, right? Then the fear kicks in.

What if this isn’t what people are following me on here for? What if I piss someone off? What if I’m not working within my “niche?” What if I look unfocused? Or “out of brand.” I think it’s a part of our culture.

I think one thing about American culture in this kind of industry (entertainment) is we often choose to see only one side of a person. For instance, Kristen Wiig is a wonderful comedian and talented actor. People see her as funny. So when she was dancing with Maddy for Sia’s Grammy performance people assumed it was some kind of joke, and everyone was waiting for the punchline. Myself included. Then I started to realize, WHY did I assume such a thing? Just cause she’s funny doesn’t mean she can’t express herself through other mediums and ways. Or that she doesn’t have to be funny all of the time.

This is gonna sound so teen angst lmfao. But whatever. It’s my current truth. I think I’m getting that stress before stress happens. I’m literally stressed about what I’m going to be stressed about at work bahaha. I can’t wait to do another video for my YouTube and let loose! 😀 See you soon! ❤ (Also, I love my job. I wouldn’t do something if I didn’t love it. <3) I made some time tonight to call and catch up with a few friends. I have to tell you, it was more alleviating than I imagined it could be. Love you guys! ❤

PS-I put the Greek Goddess of Victory, Nike, as the featured image-because there is no other option but victory. 😀

Stay bright, love,

Cory

RESTLESS DAY MISSING MY FRIENDS

Do you ever have those days where you’re ready for spontaneous adventure, or something different? That was me today. I’m not sure what sparked it, perhaps a full night’s sleep for once or catching up on sleep. Whatever it is, I was ready to just not be at home.

It’s one of those things, that’s slightly a paradox, but I wanted to go and do something but didn’t want to waste my time or resources doing it. For instance, what if I just hopped a train and took a spontaneous day trip to Chicago? Or drive around for hours with no destination in mind? I went to the gym in hopes that, that would cure my restless spirit, as it was a change of pace. I haven’t been there in too long. 😥

I definitely could talk to a friend through this all or something, just to bounce ideas and thoughts back and forth. But I wouldn’t be sure who to call. So I tried a few, and then didn’t. What do you do when you’re restless?

I think I’m missing my friends. Work has been very busy lately, and I haven’t had much time. I’m grateful that we’re busy, because that means business is good-so I will never complain about that. However, I must admit that I slightly feel like I’m losing some friends from it all. Which, I know it’s hard to be friends with someone who is rarely able to do anything (that’s me btw…) and can’t seem to make plans concrete (also me) or is bad about staying in contact (me again >_<). I just hope all my friends realize I do care about them, and I do miss them. If you even remotely think this applies to you, then it does. I promise. I would love to eventually be able to come and visit, call and catch up, or whatever works. Time is precious, and I need to be better with it. Also student loans blow. Is this part of “growing up” or am I doing it wrong? 

I hope this wasn’t too heavy or personal to share, but I needed to get it out of me somehow. Thanks for reading.

Love,

Cory
