Soundtrack to my life

I know I have mentioned this before, BUT I really love love love music. And coincidentally I am the only person in my family that wasn't born musically inclined. Even my mother... YES myyy mother was in a "band" back in high school! Her and her best friend would play gigs around town. My mom rocked the guitar while her friend "white magic" {her wicked cool stage name} would sing. So since I don't have the gift to share my music, I really like to listen to everyone elses. I have found a more profound appreciation for music since its something I long to be good at. See, this one time in elementary school I signed up to play the clarinet. I practiced all the time, and I mean ALL the time. I thought this was it, I was going to grow up to be a clarinet player. Now in reality I was terrible, but I certainly didn't think so. It wasn't until one night while I was playing my little heart out on the couch in the upstairs living room, when my sister screamed that I sounded like a dying duck and begged my mom to make me stop. Since then, I have stuck to listening and exploring different kinds of music. I am a real sucker for live music, no matter who or what kind of performance it is.

ANYWAYS today I was feeling incredibly overwhelmed. I had dedicated my day to homework and laundry. The stress didn't settle in until I realized my school work wasn't really as organized as I had thought. YES all of my classes had their own separate notebook and folder, but my assignments were all separated in their designated notebooks! I needed everything to be in one place. A trip to Barnes and noble was in order...I needed to get organized.

How could I have let this happen? This is my fifth year in college, I should have this down to a T by now. I mean come on, I have my first quiz this Friday.... Let alone my first exam on Monday! Its the the third week of school and I am falling behind already?? AHH I just want it to be overrrr

AND THAT'S WHEN IT HAPPENED...Sweet Disposition by Tender Trap popped into my head....It was actually more like a wake up call. I am NOT behind in school. I do NOT need to stress myself out. Once I buy my handy dandy weekly organizer it will all be there for me to see.
won't stop til it's over
won't stop to surrender

Music is everything...And that is the first song on the soundtrack of my life, I will continue adding songs as my life goes on :)

love love love love love

Sometimes when I cant sleep I sign onto youtube and listen to music. I am always fascinated by the amount of talent I just stumble upon. Tonight I came across Alex Cornell, he has like 20 cover songs on his account. Now usually I prefer to hear an artists original work, BUT this guy is amazing. I love love love him, and his voice... enjoy :)

This all seems very familiar :)

I must say its good to be back. Although I am extremely sad that summer is ending I look forward to the fall. Summer is all about relaxation, beaches, bare feet {ew}, stiff drinks, and concerts. I can proudly say that I had my fair share of each this year and I really cant complain.

Now as for fall, it brings crunchy leaves {I adore walking through those}, scarves, light jackets, apple cider, thanksgiving, and cuddling to stay warm :)... Only downside is that school has once again started and I find myself spending countless hours in front of my computer {for my online courses of course}.

So, I am going to start up once again slowly until I start remembering to update with cool things, pretty pictures, sweet music, and funny sayings!

life is beautiful

I read this book and cried throughout the entire thing. I can literally remember where I was and who I was with when I finished this book, and cried for about a half hour. I can't wait to see how it was made into a movie, and I am curious to see what they did with the ending :)

"while i'm out chasing my own dreams"

"love is blind"

"I've found almost everything ever written about love to be true. Shakespeare said, "journeys end in lovers meeting". What an extraordinary thought. Personally, I have not experienced anything remotely close to that, but I am more than willing to believe Shakespeare had. I suppose I think about love more than anyone really should. I am constantly amazed by its sheer power to alter and define our lives. It was Shakespeare who also said "love is blind". Now that is something I know to be true. For some, quite inexplicably, love fades; for others, love is simply lost"- The Holiday

cause in the daylight anywhere feels like home

Camp orientation was last weekend and luckily it took place on the one sunny day we have had in weeks. I feel like its the official start to summer! I also have a lot of plans coming up which I am super pumped about! A few things to keep my mind off of other things :)... Right now I am actually on my way to the midnight showing of Transformers!! WOOO {total nerd, and I LOVE IT}

Soo yeaaa sun please come out... I miss you.... and I miss wearing my sunglasses that make me look like a bug... I miss driving will all my windows down with usic blaring...running barefoot outside {without having to worry about all the mud and puddles}... I EVEN miss the smell of sunscreen. Hopefully with camp will come sunshine and weekends at Cape Cod :)

here's a good song :)

Away we Go

I went to see Away we Go tonight. And the one thing that I really really loved was the music used. Most of the songs were by Alexi Murdoch, and amazingly beautiful. This thursday when I get paid, I am buying the album :)

I run to you

What is it about guys that ignore and treat girls, ladies, and women like crap? More importantly WHY do I always seem to be interested in them?? Does that even make sense?? I sure hope not. Anyways I was talking to a friend who let me in on a little secret, he said all a guy has to do is ignore a girl, and she will be crazy for him. Immediately I dismissed his little insight on women until it got me thinking. I think {scared to admit it} he's right.

I feel like I can count several missed opportunities on my part, because I was too busy obsessing over a guy who was either a dick or really wanted nothing to do with me. It's almost like I am drawn to the guys that drive me crazy, I am used to the feeling of insanity. What I really need is for a nice guy to come along, shake me, and tell me "Nice guys are the best" or something along those corny lines.

I am done with guys who don't have time for me! WOO

Such a random ramble I know {I did just rent he's just not that into you}

anyoo I leave you with a song that I have literally had in my head for days...I catch myself singing it all the time!

It's been a while...

"your life is so random" {a good friend of mine talking about my life}

I know I know, I have really been slacking lately when it comes to blogging. I signed on today with my intentions of sharing the adventures of kitty (myself), because sometimes I think my life would make a pretty funny reality show.

For example, last Friday I went to pick up a new pair of glasses, I got lost trying to find the high way when I realized my gas light was on. By the time I found a gas station I was pretty much all out of gas and all I had on me was my bank card. I saw a sign that they accepted Visa, so I was in the clear. I asked for five dollars regular, and the man who barely spoke english complied. Once he was done pumping the gas I handed him my card, he then began shaking hid head and tried explaining that there was a fifteen dollar minimum for cards and that It's ok, he would just put ten more dollars of gas in. Embarrassed, I tried explaining that that wasn't possible, since I only had seven dollars in my account, and that I would be getting paid the next morning. Lets just say he was not happy, and I had no cash on me. He told me to wait while he continued to help the rest of the customers. I felt foolish just sitting there, I started to become paranoid as I noticed other customers shooting me glances through their windows. After what felt like an eternity {but really was like fifteen minutes} he told me I was free to go. Free to go? Just like that? Why the hell did he make me sit and suffer? Did he know I would over think the situation and stress myself out by being paranoid? WHAT? Unsure of what really just happened I pulled out of the privately owned gas station in search for the highway. About thirty seconds into driving down the road, I see a sign for the highway {finally} and a mobil gas station {where it is totally acceptable to put five dollars of gas on a debit card} fml.

a ramble of an update :)

Wow I have no been on here in a while! I have seriously been sooo busy ever since spring break... Soo here is a quick update. After Spring break and midterms I basically was just keeping up with my homework and working. I did see Lady Gaga {I had an asthma attack while watching the concert squished in the third row}.... I didn't have my inhaler on my obvi, so after I caught my breath I spent the remainder of the concert safe on a balcony with dangaa.

And then this past weekend was my schools spring dance, Senate Banquet. It was a lot of fun! We danced the night away all dressed up and did our best to dodge the vom on the dance floor from all the silly little freshman. After the dance our on campus bar was offering free food! I ate a hot dog {so not classy} aaaand of course spilled ketchup all over my new purple dress.....{shouldn't have had the dog}.

Tomorrow I am heading back out to school for a girls night out before Easter weekend! I think I might even stop after work and get a new shirt.... because I just feel like a new shirt is needed for this long awaited girls night out dancing!

I know I mentioned a while back that I wanted to start the Twilight books. Well I am now on book number three and I have become one of those girls who are madly in love with Edward. I have a hard time putting the book down! It's truly making me crazy haha

Here is a beautiful dance that I had seen a while back on so you think you can dance. It is absolutely amazing, but when I look back at it now, it makes me think of Edward and Bella... read the books and you will know exactly what I mean. {I warned you, Twilight is taking over my life}

I found a reason

I love love love this song. It's perfectly short and sweet. I am actually also in the middle of choreographing a dance for it. {and when I say middle I really mean I only have the first thirty seconds done}. To most people thirty seconds means nothing, but to a dancer 30 seconds is 30 different steps or moves, its actually a good little chunk of choreography. It took me two and a half hours to get that far! And it is really pretty so far {if I do say so myself}. The style is a mix between ballet and contemporary, although I have no training in contemporary its coming out quite nice :). Its a good thing I have sixteen years of dance experience behind me! Anyhoo I plan on recording the dance once it is finished and wonderful, so I will be sure to share it!
