Tuesday Tuneage #7

I absolutely love music. I can’t go through a day easily without it. Even at work (at least with my early shifts) I’ll have one of three music apps on my phone playing before the store opens. While working on a blog or even writing in my journal, I have to listen to one of my several playlists on itunes (playlists are the best things ever) or on 8tracks. Because of my love of music, I plan on sharing one song a week here on my blog. Either something I’ve always loved or a new song I’ve recently discovered.

Don’t Love You – TV on the Radio
“It’s been said best by you
Been said best before
But I just want to let you know
I don’t love you anymore.”

I had never even heard of TV on the Radio (an American indie rock band from Brooklyn) until a (now ex) friend introduced me to their song Wolf Like Me back in 2009. It was fantastically catchy and I immediately played it like 3 times, singing along loudly each time. It was right after that I looked up several of their songs. My favorite of all of them is Don’t Love You, but I also really like Wolf Like Me, Staring at the Sun and Love Dog. Many of their songs are actually great for getting ready to go out on a date or for a makeout mix. I also add them to my workout mixes as the fast songs are perfect for getting your blood pumped while going for a long walk or doing cardio.

What songs/bands have you been listening to? Feel free to comment with some of your favorites or the ones you just discovered and can’t seem to stop playing.

Sunday Secrets #1

“And I know, there is
Some place I can go
Where no one knows my name.”

People tell me I’m brave. The fact is, I’m not. I’m scared. Scared of so many things. The dark, men, love, death. And I’ve done things in the past to ensure the fact that I wouldn’t be hurt, because I was so afraid.

I have a tendency to push people away because I’m afraid that I’ll end up hurting them like I’ve been hurt. So in my warped mind, if I push them away and make them hate me, its better than if I really hurt them – even if it’s not intentional.

But it’s wrong, and I know it. And I’m sorry for the things I did to purposely drive people away. I want to take it back and apologize but feel I can’t because those few people I hurt will just see it as an excuse. This is the reason I always feel like running away to somewhere new. So I’m choosing to focus on the future instead and stop worrying about mistakes I made in the past. The past is the past. It’s over.

But I am sorry. More than they know. And I regret it.

This one was a bit of a heavy secret, but it’s true. Have any sunday secrets you’d like to confess? Feel free to comment or create your own post. I’d love to see it.

How Sweet It Is #5

I’m always telling my friends how it’s the little things in life that truly make me happy and give me the most enjoyment. I definitely need to start focusing on the positive things in my life, so I’ve started to chronicle the things that make me smile or bring me joy, each week.

01) My walks to and from work, making me realize just how beautiful this area really is. See? ^^
02) Finding a red lipstick that compliments my coloring. Loooove it.
03) Rediscovering my love for Tumblr.
04) Reading tons of books. I hadn’t been reading as much as I had missed it.
05) Getting internet again. Dear god, how I’ve missed it.
06) Seeing C every week. I miss him during the week but it makes cuddling that much more important.
07) Losing weight – I’m officially down 30 lbs. And it feels good.
08) Wearing C’s shirts when I stay over – and being small enough that they fit.
09) Baggy men’s pj pants. My own. I buy the mens ones because they are super comfy.
10) Shopping with Twitchy and the kiddos.
11) Long talks and tons of laughs with twitchy while tackling mundane activities such as folding laundry.
12) Hanging out with my closest girl friend Rachel. Love her to pieces and love learning more about this nerdy, awesome chica.
13) Having to go shopping because all my clothes are too big.
14) My new tablet. Makes blogging easier.
15) Making plans with C for the spring.
16) Planning to see my uncle and his family in June!
