You ever have like a good week or two, where everything just plain fails on you? Well that’s kinda how I feel right now, and as much as I’d like to curl into a ball on my bed and go at a futile attempt to sleep away my problems, I can’t.
Cos people need me… I wonder if Superman ever beat up the baddies a little extra whenever he had weeks like this. Having everyone in the city constantly need you despite your crap ass week must epic suck.
Well like most people I don’t really have a favorite song. Just current addictions and attachments to certain songs or artists. Oddly though I haven’t listened to even half the music I used to since the untimely death of my computer :[. Having limited 10 minute pockets of time on my brother’s computer doesn’t allow for much music exploration..
I don’t know what it is about Taylor Swift that draws me in so much…but yes this is one of the songs that has looped endlessly in my mind for the last while. Another awesome country-pop piece, I’m finding that I’m always taken in by her vocal lines…kinda hope she writes her music herself still. The 4th hit single from her album Fearless, and just another reason for me to keep falling for her. Viva La Taylor Swift! Honestly I just tried listening to the song again and I’m starting to grow out of it hahaha.
A mix of rap, reggae, and rock featuring a fresh voice, this song will appeal to fans who enjoy any of the above mentioned genre’s. It’s acoustic based so definitely on the softer side, the minute me and my brother heard this we both thought the same thing…who are these guys?
And just cos I have a little extra time~ A song that will always be a favorite with me(Not the favorite, but a favorite):
"Vindicated" by Dashboard Confessional From their “Dusk and Summer" Album. All kinds of emo and alternative goodness packed in a feeling explosion of a song. Awesome. I always come back to this song every once in awhile.

this time with a new track called Katie a.k.a. Beatnik8 who is based outa London of all places haha. Anyways here the link for the free download (Sweeeeettt). With an uber awesome beat and DFD’s signature flow, he once again makes me take another step towards being a serious fan of his stuff. I posted this cos it’s free music! ;D I mean c’mon….who doesn’t like free stuff?
“Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.”—Albert Einstein
..that feeling again. I lost it and I want to find it again. Jam Band, Praise Band, Real Band, just playing by myself…..anything.
Where everything starts to melt away, taking my troubles along with it all. Where nothing else is left but the chemistry between you and your band mates, the music, and that natural high that feels like nothing else matters.
So many of the “dongsengs” seem to be planning on going off to college out of state~ And perhaps with the mindset:
New place! New Adventures! New Food? New Friends! New Start! NEW ME?! SO LONG BORING VALLEY~
Mhmmmm, I remember thinking that way too. Guess what though? I came back the very first chance I got. Hahahaha I know alot of you dudes are more than capable of making new friends and adapting to new things, but I get the feeling at least of you are gonna be finding solid truths in 2 quotes eventually:
"Home is where the heart is." and "You don’t know what you got till it’s gone."
Cliche, overused, and oh so common…but I found several truths in those two quotes over and over again in my time spent on the East Side, the hard way.
If you’re lucky, you won’t get the same amount of home sickness I got. But if you’re like me, pack some mementos, gather up those memories on something solid, cos when you guys fly off next year, you’re gonna miss something or someone, and you’re gonna sorely regret that the internet is your only reminder those memories are real. I can remember several times where old pictures, little gifts and trinkets that held memories had kept me together.
Note: If you’re off to the East Side, enjoy Mexican Food while the good stuff is still around.
I’m actually really curious to see how many of you are gonna turn out in regards to this whole thing. But either way, (its a bit early but) I wish you all the best, I pray you all still continue(or start anew) your walks with Christ, make lots of new friends, and I hope you guys will keep tumblr-ing.
I had a huge bout of dissapointment earlier; something material I thought I could obtain had slipped away from me. I got my own hopes up only to get them shot down again.
It got me thinking though(big surprise), in the future I want a stable job so I don’t have to worry about money. That’s the best way. I won’t have to walk up to my friends longing for what they have because I’ll have it as well, my problems will dissolve. Life will become so much more easier.
Like hell it will.
Growing up below the average line in terms of income, my family has always had to hold back and save up, borrow and take out loans, stress over a pile of bills and find ways to conserve. However even with that, we lived comfortably (cmon Its America), though always a step under the “haves”. I grew up thinking I don’t have to be rich, I just wanna make enough so as to not have to worry about bills and junk. But would that change anything? Would that halt my ever increasing need for more? There had to be a different answer…cos this wasn’t it anymore.
I wanted Freedom. I wanted to stop worrying, not because we have enough to last, or enough to survive but because it no longer mattered.
It hit me when I reviewed some of my Bible Study stuff… none of this stuff is mine anyways. To you less religious folk, it’ll sound cheesy and irrelevant but all of the physical world came from and will always belong to God. All of it fades and none of it lasts, things break and wither and it will do so without you ever truly owning it. So tell me again, why do you need this?
I want to live life free of the chains from our material world…I’m sick of needing something because cos it’s not true. I don’t need to upgrade my computer, I don’t need to buy a guitar, I don’t need a new pretty cell phone with nifty apps. I want them…heck yeah I want them, but I don’t need them.
You’re iPhone or Blackberry is gonna break or become obsolete in a couple of years, you’re new gen game systems and your new macbook are all gonna fade eventually…but what about the things that don’t? The things we really do need?
Here starts my quest to stop wanting. To reach that point in myself where freedom can truly be called freedom. Dealing with my stress not by feeding and satisfying my greed but eliminating the greed itself.
Instead of going out and buyin God of War 3, a new laptop, a new phone, I want you guys to buy flowers, candy, dinner, lunch, breakfast for that Family member, that friend you know you never fully appreciated, or even that special someone. And when they ask "whats this for?" "Whats the occasion?"
I want you to tell them “Cos the ________________ I was about to buy myself with this money is just something I wanted, but you’re something I need, so enjoy.”
Cheesy isn’t it? I like Cheesy things(both literally and figuratively). :]
