MENTALLY OBSESSED

(Featured image by @_kitra_ on twitter)

Happy Monday everyone,

Have you heard BLACKPINKS new song? Kill this love? Well it broke a record yesterday, the Korean group reached 100 million views in just 2 days and 14 hours.

Blackpink became the fastest music video EVER to reach this amount in that amount of time!

Now, in celebration of this amazing milestone for the girl group, I’d like to announce my podcast episode with the dark Lady is being released tomorrow! If you’re a World of Warcraft fan and a horde player, I suggest you tune in on Tuesday 9 April at 6.00 PM BST.

Are you excited for the interview with Patty Mattson the voice of Sylvanas Windrunner from World of Warcraft!

See you then!

FOR THE HORDE!

My phobias – things that frighten me.

We all have a phobia. I have many.. some really bad, some I’m getting used to now. Dive into my phobias. What phobias do you have? Comment below and let me know!


Spiders

My number one fear has got to be spiders… I am petrified of them- I can’t be in the same room as one; they give me the shivers. I can’t eat my food if I see a spider on the television. I have to get rid of them. My motto is ‘Outside they go, otherwise they will procreate’.

Clowns

Clowns aren’t that bed but at the back of my mind they’re still scary to me. I’m watching IT as I’m writing this and it gives me major goose bumps. Here’s a story; I was walking back from work after finishing a long shift and these sightings of clowns were all over the news. I have to walk through this ally way to get to my house and I saw something in the middle of the ally way so I quickly went an alternate route and quickly called my assistant manager to tell her what had just happened.

Heights

I had a major fear of heights. I wouldn’t be able to get on a roller coaster ride without my legs shaking from fear. Safe to say I don’t have the fear of going on rides, but I still can’t go on super high rides.

Holes

I have a strange fear of little holes all together. It sends me nuts. When I was young my older sister had a doll which she could practice her hairstyles on. To torment me she used to pull the hairs apart so I could see the scalp and there was all these little holes. I used to HATE it.

Closing my eyes in the shower

I wouldn’t say this is a phobia but it’s a fear, whenever I’m in the shower I hate closing my eyes for a split second, my brain just imagines what might be behind me; a spirit, a demon … but most of the time it’s nothing and my imagination gets the best of me.

Questions I get randomly asked about my sexuality by others.

Hello everyone, I decided to republish this blog post I wrote not long ago on my old website.

I just wanted to share with you guys questions I get asked randomly about my sexuality by others who are curious, VERY curious. These questions are asked too many gay guys. I don’t mind answering these questions however after a bit they do get annoying and repetitive. Have you got asked questions that are random? Let me know. 

Are you a top or bottom? 
This question is asked 99% of the time. My answer is always bottom. 

Following on from are you a top or a bottom, have you ever topped? 
I answer yes, I have topped once or twice… I don’t like the experience, I’d prefer bottoming. 

If you’re a bottom how do you clean? 
This question I have no problem answering, people are curious and it’s good to learn about a gay guys experience. I use a Enema – It’s a good tool to help getting you clean properly for anal sex. 

When you’re having sex how does he get it in?
Funny enough this question pops up more than are you a top or bottom. It’s so weird that people ask that question. But i never know what to say to them… so I usually just say the same way that a Man get’s it in a women? Its not as hard as you think. Just need to find the right position. 

Do you use dating apps? 
Yes. I do use Grindr sometimes. If you are unaware of what Grindr is its a gay dating app where you can meet guys online. Sometimes the app can be really weird… loads of people don’t want to date they just want sex! 

Do you consider yourself camp? 
When in my working environment I try to not be as camp as I would be outside of work. I do like to keep some professionalism. 

Do you have a gay dar?
I do like to say yes, however sometimes you can’t tell if someone is gay, you can always jump to conclusions and someone might not even be gay? it’s embarrassing right? 

His gay, why don’t you hook up with him?
I dislike it when people do this, I admire their attempt to help me getting a boyfriend however not everyone who is gay is my type.

What would you tell someone who is in the closet to come out to their parents?
It’s the hardest thing to come out to your parents, I was nervous when I told my Mom and what she said to me afterwards made me smile “Rhys, I already knew, and I don’t care who you love, as long as your happy.”.  Loads of questions probably go around your head about what will happen and what will she do? Your parents should love you no matter what. If they don’t they don’t deserve your love – but more than likely your parents will already know and they are waiting for that special day you sit down with them and tell them that you love men or women. 

Have you been to a gay bar yet? 
Yes, I’ve been to a gay bar, I went to bar diva in Dudley Town center, let’s just say I probably won’t be going back to that place.

It’s completely different from my normal blog posts about Mental Health and KPOP, however I wanted you to know even more about me.

DEAR 2019, GOODBYE 2018!

2018 has officially ended, thank god for that! I can’t even fathom how dreadful 2018 was. I’ve gone through such a traumatic experience, but towards the end of 2018 I reached some really awesome goals! But I hope 2019 will be my year!

Dear 2019, I hope I can successfully continue my YouTube channel showcasing my KPOP reactions and other stuff! I will try my hardest in trying to achieve this!

Let’s just say, I hope 2019 will be a really good year for us all! If not, let’s continue to live life to the fulliest, let’s love, let’s enjoy and most of all let’s share memories!

WHY BLIPPI IS AMAZING FOR YOUR SIBLINGS WHILE BABY SITTING.

There’s nothing better than having siblings who are incredibly quiet and sit well when they’re watching someone who does an amazing job on YouTube.
As I write this article in the comfort of other family members, my little brother and sister are both engulfed.
Blippi and his education videos will keep your children quiet but also well educated. I wish I had YouTube when I was younger. You’re doing amazing Blippi! So thank you blippi for your videos!

INFORMATION OF DEBT AND SOME ADVICE

Debt is the main problem in our society. I share some information and advice on what to do if you’re in debt, I find these tips helpful whenever I have some problems with my debts. 

The average total debt per household, including mortgages, was £58,776 in August. The Revised figure for July was £58,648 – https://themoneycharity.org.uk/money-statistics/

According to The Money Charity – Lenders wrote off £1.049 billion (of which 309 million was credit card debt) amounting to a daily write-off of £3.3 million.

Now, most of us if not all of us would have encountered some sort of debt in our lives ranging from phone contracts, overdrafts and credit cards, realistically if someone can’t afford to pay a debt they’ll just stop paying, which can’t be helped, but communication between the provider will help a lot.

I found it so much easier and so much more of a relief to contact the provider to let them know that you are having some issues with your finances, tell them what you can afford and come to some sort of arrangement. Some service providers are so understanding when it comes to your current circumstances.

If the provider won’t come to an agreement (but most of the time they will) contact debt charities like step change who are incredible at helping people with their debts!

HAPPY 5TH OF NOVEMBER YESorYES AND BONFIRE NIGHT

Happy Monday everyone. What a good day, it’s bonfire night here in the UK. If you non UK folk are confused as to what Bonfire night is, let me explain before we get into the blog post. 

So basically we celebrate someone who “nearly” blew up parliament in 1605, Guy Fawkes was a member of the Gunpowder plot who plotted to destroy the house of lords. Guy was arrested while he was guarding the explosives that were placed below Parliament. Still wondering why on earth we’d set off fireworks for someone who “nearly” blew up the House of Lords? Good question, I’m sure someone would be able to answer that for you in the comments below or google maybe?

Now. I can’t wait to be sat inside watching everyone set off fireworks, although when I was younger I’d sit at the highest peak and watch the fireworks throughout the black country. It was a lovely sight to admire.

Last year I remember sitting inside in the warmth listening to the sound of fireworks bang and the air filled with smoke, This year I’m going to do exactly the same, I can’t wait to sit in front of a “pretend” fire and devour 100 ginger nut biscuits and a tin of Jaffacakes. Will you be setting off fireworks? If not what else will you be doing?

Another thing to celebrate!! TWICE!! They released YES or YES… and as you can already tell I AM SUPER happy right now. (This post is scheduled) but I can just imagine how pleased I am with the song. Have you listened to it yet? Let me know what you think!

I’ve introduced something new on my Instagram, or testing, I’m not completely sure If I’ll go through with it but I shall be doing weekly film recommendations. Rhys’ film club! If you want some awesome film recommendations, give me a follow on Instagram!

What an awesome Monday, Guy Fawkes night AND TWICE!! Eeeeek!

Peace out!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, IT’S TIME TO GET DRUNK!

Today is Halloween, Today’s the day it’s acceptable to look dead, I know I look dead all year round, but that’s ok.

It’s finally 31st of October it’s time to plan our Halloween outfits, time to assemble squads and family and time to party. Traditionally my auntie always has a party on Halloween night to celebrate my cousins birthday which is the 1st of November.  However, Halloween lands on a work day this year so my auntie had her party on Saturday while I was at a different party.

My family has always drunk excessive amounts, especially my Mum. (We don’t call her Nemo for nothing).

Any special occasion and everyone in the UK likes to have a good ass drink, party, dress up nicely and go out. I do too love to party and get absolutely smashed occasionally, but after past troubles with alcohol, I don’t drink as frequently as I used to.

What are you dressing up as on Halloween? Let me know in the comments. (Comments are anonymous, you don’t need an account to comment. Comments, however, are monitored).

Enjoy this blog? Please spread the word :)
