Chapters 308, 309 310 & 311: Countdown

Happy Thursday!

A few months ago, I mentioned that in August, I’d be flying out to Chicago to attend the Lollapalooza Music Festival. And GUESS WHAT? I’ll be flying on this Friday for a lovely weekend with my dad in Chicago.

I’ve been waiting for this for months, so I’m super excited! However, I’ll be on a 6 AM flight, so that’s the only major downfall of this trip, but I guess I’ll drink some coffee and power through it!

So, what are you doing this weekend?

Have an awesome weekend! xxoo

Chapter 169: Instrumental Music

Happy Thursday!

In past posts, I’ve talked about how music is an extremely important part of my life. Today, it’s become a bigger part, but not because I’m in a rotten mood, but because I’m happy. For the past few days, I’ve been in a pretty good mood (despite the colossal amount of work), and today, I’ve found a type of music that has boosted my mood even higher. Instrumental music, which means I’m listening to songs without words, and without vocals. It’s a simple genre, but it’s one of my favorites. 

Hope you all have a great Friday!

Chapter 111: Lyrics

Happy Monday!

Song lyrics are like snowflakes, each one is individual, and none of them are identical. There are great lyrics and sucky lyrics, but the words still mean something either way. I’ve spent the past hour or so trying to track down lyrics, and each one has its’ own story or influence…which is amazing.

I write lyrics somethings, and I know how important the words are, because each one holds a meaning, and that’s what makes each song so special and unique.

Hope you all have a great week!

Chapter 108: Other People Have Emotions Too

Happy Friday!

Sometimes it feels like what I have to say is never good enough, that I’m wrong and always will be. It’s frustrating, because while I know and understand that people have thoughts, emotions, beliefs and pasts that they don’t wish to share or are haunted by them…it’s not alright to attack another person who is only trying to help them. Instead of being able to sit down and have a honest conversation about it, it only builds a wall between, straining the relationship until eventually if it’s not resolved, will snap and crumble.

But like I said in my last post, at least I’ll always have music to help me get through anything.

Hope you all have an amazing weekend!

Chapters 106 & 107: Music

Happy Thursday!

Music cures everything, at least in my life. Wether I’m ill, a rotten mood or just having a bad day, music is the one thing that makes me feel better, no matter what. I’ve created playlists of specific bands, which I have a tendency to listen to the band over and over on repeat until someone yells at me to change the song. Currently, my band on repeat is i McFly, who are incredible and  you should all check them out.

Chapter 56: Musical Memory

Happy Monday!

After coming back to school from Thanksgiving break, I had hoped that the amount of school work given would be a bit lighter. Yet the second I cracked open my assignment planner, any feeble hope I might of had was destroyed as I stared at the mass of black ink that was scribbled all over my week. 

So where does coming back from break leave me now? Sitting in my room, blasting classical music while frantically looking through a textbook to finish a music essay. If anyone asked me how much fun I’ve had at school, my current response will be, “ask me again once finals are over.”

Hope you all have a great week!

Chapter 35: Memorizing Music

Happy Monday! 

Today is going to be bit of a short post, only because I’m attempting to cram in notes while studying for my music exam tomorrow without procrastinating. Sadly, it’s not going as well as I hoped, memorizing really isn’t my favorite way to learn a subject, but I guess it’ll have to do for now…

Hope you all have a great week! Also, in case you didn’t know (which would be pretty difficult at this point), tomorrow is Election Day, so don’t forget to vote!

Chapter 18: Musical Moods

Happy Friday!

Today, I get to attend a music concert at my school, and even though it’s because I’m required to go for a class assignment, I’m still excited that I’m going. The upcoming week is going to be a tough one for me, both personally and academically, so this concert will hopefully give me a chance to just relax and listen to the music, without having to worry about school and life. It’ll be a chance for me to escape, if only just a little while.

So, this weekend, despite all of my concerns, I’m also planning to escape for a bit and just listen to the music. xxoo
