I love this album. It’s simple and pure and the lyrics are full of positivity and love. The songs are bursting with love. It’s exactly what I need at this very moment. And so I think you should give it a listen, and let me know if it’s what you need, too.
I’m letting myself off the hook for things I’ve done I let my past go past And now I’m having more fun I’m letting go of the thoughts That do not make me strong
I’m letting myself off the hook for things I’ve done
I let my past go
And now I’m having more fun
I’m letting go of thoughts
That do not make me strong
When I look into your eyes
It’s like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
Well there’s so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you’ve come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?
You don’t need a vacation when there’s nothing to escape from
Whether it’s your birthday or your dying day it’s a celebration to rejoice
To use your voice
And give wings
To any old choice
(I think this one is my favorite on the album)
Son in life you’re gonna go far
If you do it right you’ll love where you are
Son in life it may seem dark
But the absence of the light is a necessary part
Just know that where ever you go
No you’re never alone
You can always get back home.
This is your life. What are you doing with it?
(If someone gave me money to make a video about making life count, this is what I would do)
I’m sorry it’s been a while. The words aren’t making it past my journal or Google Docs.
Things I Love:
Dermalogica Redness Relief (even though it’s a lot of money)
rereading what I wrote during NaNoWriMo in November and still being excited about the story
Dunkin Donuts Sun dried tomato bagels
making gratitude lists daily
I’m rereading the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
delivering Easter chocolates a day late
“favorite parts” of hanging out
making up ice cream sundae concoctions (mocha chip with peanut butter sauce, a tiny bit of hot fudge and lots of cinnamon)
playing with camera apps on my phone (like Instagram. Starsgoneblue. Add me).
deactivating my Facebook. Seriously refreshing
the exact temperature of 6:30 this morning while the birds were chirping a the sun hadn’t quite hit my window yet
spending an entire day alone sitting by the beach, drinking Peanut Butter Cup iced coffee, eating a Sierra Turkey sandwich before going to another beach/ park and sitting and reading
writing blog posts by hand. the disconnect is that they never make it to the screen
being told I smell like a girl (instead of, what, a boy?)
coconut & lime scented body butter
talking about going to Paris
thinking about taking a lone road trip up the coast of California
homesickness for Lucca, Italy
daydreaming daydreaming daydreaming
I got accepted to San Jose State University! I don’t think I’ve mentioned it on here before. I’m going to be participating in their graduate program to get an MLIS - which stands for Masters of Library and Information Science. I’m not sure how this will affect my blogging efforts, but we’ll see how it goes when the time comes. It’s my understanding that graduate students don’t have any free time, so we’ll see! (Also I’m planning on trying to find scholarships. If anyone has any experience with this, please let me know.)
I’ll share music any time I feel like a song is about to burst out of me. I’ve loved Fun. since before they were Fun. Since the lead singer was in the Format (they remind me of the entire year of 2005). It’s great to hear a familiar, nostalgic voice.
We are young. So let’s set the world on fire.
I still buy CDs sometimes. And sometimes I’ll stand in Best Buy looking for something new but not sure of what I want. So I’ll just buy something on a whim. I’ll buy something I’ve never seen before or heard of. The other day I bought The Anthony Green album Beautiful Things purely because of the title of the cd. I’m not regretting this purchase.
Occasionally I come across inspiring, well put together videos that make me want to leave my bedroom right this instant and start climbing mountains or biking around Provincetown. This is one of these videos.
ps. I got my power back at 2am on Wednesday morning and I’ve been crazy busy since! <3
