oops, been too busy so i didnt get a chance to do december 5, 6 or 7. but its ok. cause im officially done with all standardized testing and i dont give a shit anymore. so here goes nothing. (will attempt to do all three now. so this will be super long)
Day 5: What Are Your Obsessions? (Explain why.)
i dont think i’d say im seriously obsessed with anything because its such a powerful word. sure i use it in my daily speech, exclaiming that i am obsessed with “blah blah blah”. but now that i think about it. i dont really remember any of those. (side note: i really like how this december writing thing is forcing me to reflect on the little things i say everyday.) anyways. actually, i think have/had two obsessions.
1. when i was younger (and still happens sometimes now), i was in love with buying stationary. there was something about buying pens and pencils that made me super happy. i still have two boxes full of miscellaneous pens, pencils, erasers and even notebooks. and i just dont use them… i dont/didnt get myself. i loved the action of buying but not actually using because i was not willing to use the “precious pens” that i found. wtf, i was so weird. but yeah, this happened from i think elementary school (around 3rd or 4th grade) to about my sophomore year. (oh god). so yep. sorry mom for spending so much money on crap that i dont even use now. (whoops) (lol i guess ill start using them now.)
2. my obsession with the maine. a friend of mine introduced me to the maine in 7th grade and i instantly fell in love with the band. idk. something about john’s voice and pat’s quirky-ness got to me. i have every single song they have ever released (some demos too). and though they’ve grown from “pop punk” to indie rock. i’ve grown with them. im glad to say that the maine has been part of my “growing” process and actually has influenced me a lot. the change in john’s voice gets to me everytime. from their up-beat songs like “everything i ask for” and “i must be dreaming” to the rawness of john’s voice in “misery” and “birthday in la”. i just cant. im in love with him and his voice. and the way he says “town” in into your arms. (oh my god, i die)
but yeah, these are the two obsessions i can think of right now that were pretty serious.
Day 6: What Is Your Favorite Quote. (Explain.)
lol, the very first quote i think of is one that john said. (go figure). “the only dreams that matter are the ones you have when you’re awake”. i think this quote is so true. no matter what dream you have in your sleep (good or bad) it’ll only true in your fantasy world. if i dream of meeting john, i’d only be kind of happy and kind of sad it didnt happen. the only dream that will make me ecstatic is actually meeting john irl. so yeah. i think i try to create dreams that matter, but none have really stayed with me for a long time yet.
another quote i really like is “never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game” which i think is originally said by babe ruth, but i heard from a cinderella story. idk i just like the quote. heh
Day 7: What Type Of Music Do You Favor? (Write about the bands/singers you listen to.)
oh boyy, this one is going to take me a while. um i wont type in any order. but just what pops into mind when i type.
ok i think my love for the maine is pretty self-explanatory (especially if you read day 5.) but yeah, i love them to death. since 7th grade (zomg 5 years ago) and i still do now. i think they’re more indie rock now? and i prefer their current music over their old ones (however into your arms will always get to me because it is my first). so yeah indie rock is something i really like now.
i also really like all time low. but i feel like atl has become more of a guilty pleasure and not something i would listen to on a daily basis. (zomg that coming out of my mouth) i actually got the privilege of watching them live a couple months ago (and actually go on stage, say what!) but yeah. theyre a little tooooooooooooooo pop-ish for me now. their old stuff? i will always be able to listen to, but their new stuff. meh depends on my mood.
talking about their old stuff. old pop punk is something i love to listen to. taking back sunday, simple plan, blink 182, fob, new found glory, the used, yellowcard. zomg typing these bands are just bringing back so many memories :’) but yeah. old pop punk is what i grew up listening to, and they’ll always be there for me.
OH YEAH. talking about “being there for me” the ONE song that will instantly make me ^__^ is wonderwall by oasis. something about that song just gets to my heart right when the first strum is played. ugh, i love this song so so so so much and i honestly can just listen to it whenever with whomever.
what i just mentioned are songs that i am familiar with and will always be familiar with. however, towards the beginning of my sophomore year, i became exposed to edm and just like remixes in general (idk what genre that is, chill music…? lol) anyways avicii is one of my favorite artists. idc if people say he is overrated. i love him and that is that. also many of the remixers out there are also amazing. like RAC. ugh
oops i think this post is too long. so ill stop here. (even though im pretty sure i could go on) hopefully now that everything is over ill be able to post everyday ^__^
