play by play of my day

If you care to read:
Went to bed insanely early last night due to stomach cramps.
Woke up several times during night, groaning in pain.
Guess what greeted me in the morning? Right, again – stomach pain!
Stayed home all morning, lying on couch.
Forced myself to school in afternoon so I could go to English (yes, I am that cool, thank you).
Somehow made it through my shift at work and then came home to an hour and a half of studying for tomorrow’s Math test.
Dreading, dreading, dreading.
Have high confidence in my bombing that test.
So nice to be sure of things in life.
Have to think of a movie costume to wear to a party.
Thinking of something involving blue hair.
Would be quite fashionable for church the next day, don’t you think?

sondre lerche

Just discovered songwriter/guitarist Sondre Lerche! Very impressive! Quick facts: at age eight, he began guitar lessons and soon started singing regularly at local open mic sessions (though underage). By 16, he had signed a record deal with Virgin Norway! (And what have I accomplished before my sixteenth birthday?) Now 27, he has just released a wonderful new album titled “Heartbreak Radio”. Love the mix of acoustic guitar with cello, deep drums with violin. Hope you enjoy!

valentine’s day plans

Valetine’s Day is fast approaching.  At the risk of huge embarassment, I will let you in on a secret. My friends have proposed a “friendship party” (aka a “let’s eat ice cream and cry about our singleness together” party). We’ll watch romantic movies and dream of the guys we’re destined to meet someday (where are they now?). I am not ashamed to admit, I think it will be a lot of fun.  Are you doing anything fun? (Warning: if you say you’re going on a date with your beloved I will throw pie at you!)

for the love of tea

Combine your love of the Beatles and tea with this ingenious TeaSub from Monkey Business. While you’re at it,  listen to the classic “Yellow Submarine” below:

coeur de pirate

In the mood today for Coeur de Pirate, an up-and-coming singer from Quebec. Half the time I have no idea what her lyrics mean, but I find her songs soothing nonetheless. French is such a poetic language, don’t you think? Check out her hit, “Comme des Enfants”, below:
