The Waterboys • This is the Sea

The Waterboys • This is the Sea

First thoughts: Perfect way to start off the weekend with just enough tack but good sound.

Final Verdict: a great album for mixing into a party mix for in between songs. Would listen to again but not regularly

A Weekend of Music…

This weekend on both Friday and Saturday my parents are hosting and going to parties. So, of course I am taking advantage of that and I plan to listen to 18 CDs that I don’t have room for on my IPhone and the 1198 songs that I do. I’ll post a picture of each CD, along with my first reaction and my final verdict on it. For the songs I’ll post in groups of 22 which ones I like the best. Are you ready guys? Here… We… GO!

Day 6&7: what makes you sad and hat makes you happy

Okay so I intentionally put these days together because otherwise I would have been up untill four am. 

So I’ll start with what makes me sad. Honestly a lot of things do. Like how the are so many people everywhere struggling to survive, an how there are also people everywhere wishibg they weren’t alive. But on a smaller scale what makes me sad is just bad days and I know that’s really general but it’s still valid. Also it makes me sad that I’ll be stuck here for at least four more tears. And to wrap it up the death of most fictional characters basically kills me.

Now what makes me happy. Again, i’ll go small scale. Good books, good art, good music, lazy days, tea, being cozy, killer outfits, fall weather, writing something really well, hand written letters, tumblr, quotes and little things like that all make me happy. Especially chocolate and someone genuinely laughing. 

So, I guess that’s it for today then!

Day 7: A show or a movie that has changed you and how

Okay so you’ve probably read my last post about Sherlock, and from that you can probably deduce that I am emotionally unstable when it comes to my favourite characters. But Sherlock hasn’t changed me, it is simply a very, very good form of entertainment. A lot of movies and shows have changed me, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Silver Linings Playbook, and so many more. I think it’s increadible that some flickering stills can so completely alter your view on something.

I wouldn’t say it’s the movies that have changed me, but more accurately the quotes that stick with me long after the movie is over. For example, I remember a quote from Silver Linings, perfectly, and I only heard it once. I haven’t read It or searched it, but I remembered it because it was what I needed right then, and sometimes I still use it to remind me that eventually it’ll be okay.

“The world will break your heart ten ways to Sunday. That’s guaranteed. I can’t even begin to explain that. Or the craziness inside me any everyone else. But guess what? Sunday’s my favourite day again. I think of what everyone has done for me, and I feel like a pretty lucky guy.”

And oh my God the Perks of Being a Wallflower. That movie killed me. I think because I see myself so clearly inside of Charlie. And I don’t know why, but that was amazing to me. And then there’s flipping One Tree Hill. Don’t even get me started on that freaking show.

So yeah, movies and TV shows play a pretty instrumental part in who I am today. I don’t think that that’s a bad thing. Because If no one in the world ever watched movies or TV shows, how would we ever know how magical it can be to step inside a world that is your own but still really isn’t?

1 Week Down, 41 more to go.

It’s finally Saturday. This week had been so long but so short at the same time. It feels like Tuesday was just yesterday, when really it was four days ago. I hope the rest of the school year doesn’t go by so fast. I love high school. People always say that it sucks, but I really honestly and truly do love it. I’ve met so many new people (one boy whom I may need to update you on 😉 and made so many new friends. Yeah, two of the four classes I have aren’t that great, but just being in the actual high school as a student is actually so amazing. I know that loving high school this much can’t last forever, but right now I am so in love with it.

On Monday I’m going to my friend’s house and we’re walking and going to hang out with some (male) people. I think that my goal of having an amazing, teenager-story worthy four years is starting to happen. I can’t wait.

Like, omg, I am literally fangirling over school, what is wrong with me… but like… boys.
