Isnt it funny?....

      Its funny, I went to a show last night, and there were soo many different types of people there. Some older, many younger, some with peircings and head banger hair, others clean cut and dressed up. 

     My favorite part  about music, is just that. It brings so many different people from such diverse walks of life, to a crowded bar, stadium, or feild and everyone is inertwind by the constant pulsations of the bass and drums...and are connected through lyrics and sweat. ahhh...live music is like the heartbeat of creativity. It takes every ounce of energy to create, and can touch so many lives in a five minute song. Oh how I wish I could create that way. I am and always will be indebted to all the musicians and lyricists out there. You have helped me through some of the toughest times, and contributed to some of the best times in my life. Songs are what can link the past to present. They are what can bring back memories and feelings that you may want to forget, or hold onto forever. I know that when I fall in love the infamous "our song" will be the most significant song to me. One that I want to live on in my heart forever :) Music is what connects people. Its something that can be shared no matter where you are, or where you're from. 

    One summer, when I was 18 my closest friends and I decided that we were going to have the best and most exciting summer EVERRR!!!. So we decided that we were going to do every single thing in the Ataris song, "In this Diary"...it was the best summer we ever had. there is a line that has stayed with me as I grow up,

Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up:
These are the best days of our lives.
The only thing that matters
is just following your heart
and eventually you'll finally get it right. 
 Its an anthem that I will never forget, and always live by...one that will help me remember the best summer ever. :) That my friend, is the reason music is so profound. It is a memoir that we wouldnt of been able to create for ourselves, but when a song comes on the radio or ipod, and all those feelings of jubilance and youth come fluttering back we are reminded of where weve come from and where we aspire to be.

Hey remember that time when i ate boxes of tangerines?

Its funny how quickly life can change. One minute you're 18 and the whole world is at your fingertips, and the next thing you know, everything that was comfortable to you is gone...people change, people grow up, people grow apart. Its all a part of growing up. I'm fine with it all it just takes time to adjust. And then once you've adjusted, everything changes again...its a continuous cycle.
This blog isnt intended to catch everyone's attention its just an outlet for me. An outlet to get my feelings across on some broad subjects, and some unpretentious subjects. I'm trying to get back to the basics of me...of who i am...Ive seemed to have lost myself in being there constantly for others. Its frustrating when others seem to know you better than you know yourself. I've began doing the things that brought me joy and definition to my life, things in which i have given up in sacrifice for, what i believe to inevitably be accepted by my peers.
I've always been quirky, and a bit dramatic at times lol. But I'm on the path of getting my "spunk" back, as one of clients described it. He is actually the one that initiated this blog. I used to write creatively ALL THE TIME...I used to paint, I used to be into photography, anything that i could have a creative outlet...I lost that for a bit, but I'm working on it again...it feels good to be honest with myself and anyone else who reads this.
This past year has truly put a test on my faith and my character. What did I learn from this? I actually learned that I AM an independent person and a confident one at that. Especially when it comes to my beliefs. I have a fighting streak in me, in the sense that ill fight till the end if its for something i believe in. I guess that would make me a passionate person? I like that :) Ok im done for now. But my goal is to stay up to date with these posts...maybe entertaining some people at the same time :)

Sealed with a Kiss,
