2.21.15 | Hush – Kula Shaker

Stand-out Lyric/s – Hush, hush…I thought I heard you’re calling my name now / Hush, hush…you broke my heart but that was a dream now

SO today, I was kinda in a daze. I was definitely hungover from a long night of partying with some of my new friends from work. I don’t remember drinking very much, but it’s been so long since I had done some drinking, that my body was not prepared. So work was a definite journey, and I had to be there all day.
I got a burst of energy though, when my friend, Liz, text me and some other friends about going to see Kingsman: The Secret Service. I was the only one who could go but I was definitely ready to get off work and go see it. My fiancé was out of town, visiting with his friends and I had nothing to do and was scared I was gonna be home all alone for the night.
After I got done a dismal day at work, I ran home, got changed and was off to the movie theatre. Liz was there and ready to go! The movie was great and I loved how it was shot and directed. I also loved the main guy in the movie but we’ll be quiet about that one! 😛 A lot of people told me it would be a little like Kick-Ass and I love Kick-Ass, but from seeing trailers, I didn’t really believe them. It was very similar though! I was glad and I can’t wait to see it again with my fiancé.
I thought of this song for the day because it was in a trailer for the movie and because it had my sense of urgency in the lyrics and fast pace that I had at work in the beat.

2.11.15 | Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) – Eurythmics

Stand-out Lyric/s – Sweet dreams are made of this / Who am I to disagree / I travel the world and the seven seas / Everybody’s looking for something

Today I awoke from a really weird dream. I was in Disney World with my parents, my brother, and my boyfriend. My dad came into the hotel room to wake me up (it felt like I had missed breakfast with the family or something?) and he kept saying “We’re going to Disney today, you gotta get up!” And in my dream I was SO tired, I could barely move any kind of muscle, or keep my eyes open. I had never had this type of dream, where I was sleeping and even in my dream I was tired. I also remember, in my dream, that we went to Disney and I had to find a restroom nearby to take a nap.. like “What?!?!” So strange.
The rest of the day, I was at work and I chose to pick up two shifts. What was I thinking? Needless to say, the whole day felt a little off.. I kept thinking about the dream and why I had it and just ended up thinking of nothing but what the table just ordered and if I got it right or not.
I love this song and I think it kind of goes with my dream-like-state that I was in all day. I also love this song in the movie Suckerpunch as well. Every time I hear it,  I think of that movie and I feel like a badass for the rest of the day, ready to tackle on any enemy that comes my way.

Yours for the listening,

1.11.15 | No One is Alone – Into The Woods (Soundtrack)

Standout Lyric/s – Sometimes people leave you. / Halfway through the wood. / Others may decieve you. /  You decide whats good. / You decide alone. / But no one is alone.

I saw Into The Woods in theaters sometime last week. I never got into the musical, even though, I did a lot of theatre in my life, it just never stuck with me. My boyfriend came with me to see this and this time it stuck with me. He brought up points about how the Wolf was the devil showing us the “pretty things” and the woods was the world that we live in, where if we wish for something or work hard to achieve something, we better be ready to reap the consequences, whatever they may be.
I especially loved this song in the musical. A lot of the songs felt like they were the same melody just with different lyrics and to me that kind of seemed l a z y and made the film seem a lot longer to me then it actually was. This song felt sincere and true. I think it hit a chord with everyone in the theatre and gave us all a sense of togetherness, which I am all about.
The lyric that I put above, I just can’t stop singing!! “You decide what’s good. You decide alone. But no one is alone.” Your choices are what you choose, but they don’t define who you are or where you’re going. There is always going to be someone who is going to believe in you and support you. This world is way too big to claim that you have “no one”! If you feel that way, I encourage you to get out and make friends today. Start small talk with strangers, play a board game at the coffee shop with someone new, or buy the person’s coffee behind you in the starbucks drive through! You get what you put into this world. Only putting negativity and desolating yourself from others does nothing for you! If you have a ton of support around you, I encourage you to find someone who maybe doesn’t and interact with them as much as you can get out of them! Sooner or later, they’ll come around to you, and if they don’t, you tried!
You are never alone in how you feel or what you believe.

Yours for the listening,
Kelly
