Happy Mardi Gras!

Hey everyone! Happy Mardi Gras! Today is the day where we celebrate by consuming pancakes! I love eating pancakes. I’m going to be having pancakes for dinner tonight. I cannot wait! It is also a day where you wear purple, gold, and green. Whereas purple represents justice, gold represents power, and green represents faith.

Mardi Gras translates into Fat Tuesday, because it’s a day where people use up their ingredients such as milk, eggs, flour, and sugars since most people will be fasting starting tomorrow until Easter for Lent. I don’t partake in this, because that was how I was raised. But I would love to go to New Orleans to see all of the celebrations. I have never been to New Orleans before, so I would love to visit.

I hope everyone is enjoying their day.

#ThatPower – Will.i.am ft. Justin Bieber

Today’s song of the week is #ThatPower by Will.i.am and Justin Bieber. It used to be one of my favourite songs. It samples lyrics from electronic duo Daft Punk‘s Better, Faster, Stronger.

To me, this song is about keeping your motivation and always moving forward. And that no what happens, you can achieve your goals. And not caring about what your haters may say or think about you in the process.

“I stay on that hustle, I flex that little muscle
Hate to bust your bubble
I’m on that other level
I’ma take it higher and high and high and higher
I stay in fly attire
Keeping burning like that fire”

-Will.i.am ft. Justin Bieber, #ThatPower
