For all my Moods

So today I am sort of copying Classic Bronte’s post on music and the different affects it has one her. Except I am posting about what music I listen to when I am in a certain mood or am trying to get out of a certain mood.

When I am over the top happy I listen to: Yael Naim

When I am feeling discouraged I put on some: ‘Come, Weary Saints’ Sovereign Grace Music

When I am feeling girly I go to: Disney Princesses

When I am normal and trying to focus its all: Mumford and Sons

When I feel like dancing: Big Band  (Just try not to dance to this)

When I need a laugh: Apologetix

When I am feeling romantic: Braveheart

When I am feeling sappy: Owl City/Skysailing

When I want to bob my head: Rehab

For a floating around the house: Florence and the Machine

For most other times I put on: Coldplay, Abigail Washburn and the Sparrow Quartet, or some good musicals.

A sketch I did on Christmas Eve while listening to “The Luke Reports” By Focus of the Family Radio Theater. It is a sketch of a one of little girls from the CSA farm we got our veggies from this summer.

Don’t read this post

So I am up late. Can’t sleep. Story of my life. A friend is sleeping over so I am sleeping on the futon, which is not comfy at all. I was just laying there thinking about things of no interest to anyone but maybe my dog, and said to myself “Self, go write a blog post.” So here I am.

Tonight I went swing dancing. It was a lot of fun, but far too crowded. My hair got all messy and in my face, but I didn’t really care that much.  Should I care? I don’t know. Does it matter. Not at all. Why am I saying this? I am tired.

I ate some cheese cake when I got home. It was very yummy. I made some toast, and didn’t eat it all. I hadn’t eaten anything since breakfast. My fault, I was just lazy and didn’t feel like cooking anything. I forgot to feed my pigeons today. I feel really bad about it but don’t really want to go outside by myself in the dark and in the cold. If you are reading this I am so sorry. You might just want to stop now. It can only go down hill from here.

Sometimes life is hard, sometimes it’s not. I am so glad I know that God is sovereign. It helps a lot, a lot. And I mean a lot. I feel bad for people who don’t know that. How do they get though life? I don’t think I could.

I picked up my books from NCU today. They are new, last year they were used. It’s special.

Wow, I really am sorry. But I guess this is my blog, I am just throwing out my most random thoughts right now, and I guess that is what a blog is sort of for right?

Oh make a wish! Its 1:11! I wished for something. You wish you knew what it was. But not really, because it was lame and will most likely never happen.

I am sorry…again. I should just go. This is a bit awkward. Not to mention boring.

Goodnight moon. This has been a good chat. Because apparently I was talking to the moon that whole time…right….

Goals for 2011

I am posting a list of the goals I have for 2011 because I need to write them down somewhere. They are sort of lame but it’s better than nothing right?

I hope that I meet these goals this year, I can’t even remember what my goals were last year. But that is I why I am posting them. This time next year I will do a post on what goals I meet and how that all turned out. But for now, my 2011 goals (not in order of importance).

2. Get my drivers license

3. Audition for a summer show or two

4. Get a job
