To be honest, I have been going through a lot lately and I don’t exactly know how I feel about some things. I was watching my favourite show, This Is Us, and this song came on and it was as if I found clarity and peace within myself, even if it was only for one minute. When I later googled it, it was called Into the Mystic by Van Morrison. I listened and listened to this song over and over again on repeat and I felt calmer each time I did and I felt at peace each time I did. Time stopped for a moment and everything was finally okay. Then I went searching for more of his music and actually stumbled upon a few that I was quite familiar with. I made this playlist of my top 6 Van Morrison songs to help me calm down when I am stressed and anxious. You can access them via Spotify below. Happy listening!
I originally stumbled upon this song on an acoustic listening Spotify playlist. I then went to research more about the artist, JP Cooper, and I found the more mainstream pop version of the song. This is probably one of the cutest songs I have ever heard, however it is not too lyrically complex which allows for a more easy listening experience. I have been listening to this song on repeat as it is just great period and the artists voice amplify the song. This is one of those songs that you will find yourself listening too repeatedly on a road trip.
To all of my lovely blog followers, whom I have neglected by not writing as much this year, Happy New Year to you. I hope that this year brings you loads of blessings and happiness. Thankfully the year of realizing is over.
I am also going to get back to writing on this blog…for the remainder of the year and then I will retire it in the most wonderful way possible. I have maintained this blog throughout high school and university, and as I progress into my professional life, I don’t know if it will be feasible for me to keep on writing here. I may want to venture into different types of writing or I may simply just one day run out of time. As a final thank you to myself and a final goodbye to this blog, I will finish this in May 2017 and I will move on to other things.
I look forward to seeing your likes on my new blog posts!
I am bored.
Since 2012, I have dedicated this blog specifically to writing about music and documenting my changes in musical interests. It is now 2015 and I am bored with the whole concept of this blog. I have had the blog for over 3 years now, I have had the blog since I was in high school ( I am now in university) and I feel as though it has not evolved or changed with my personality over the years. I feel like I need to change my direction for this blog, maybe I need to start writing about the new things that I like. While I do want to do that, I feel like this blog has a point and purpose and that is for me to write about the music that I like so that when I am 35, I can look back and say “I liked THAT song?” and be shocked and appalled or maybe even curious about what was going on with me at that time. Focused writing has always kept me inspired to write and that is truly what I like about this blog. So, instead of completely trashing the dream of having a music blog, I have added two new tabs to my menu bar: Books to share and Interesting Posts. Here I will be able to chronicle the books that I’ve read and enjoyed (and maybe give away a few ebooks) and I will now be able to share the posts that I find intriguing through my other tab.I did contemplate ending this blog but I think that I am going to wait until I finish university, just so that I can look back on my younger years and read more about what I was thinking and doing at that time.
