Music and Hugs

I just saw "My Sister's Keeper". It was an amazing movie, I cried for probably 95 percent of it. I read the book a few years ago, the movie did a really great job of capturing all the emotions. Now I want to go give a bear hug to every person in my life, look them in the eye, and say "thank you. I love you".

So, the day I came home from Western, one of the things I decided to do to keep my mind busy was to come up with a list of my 100 Favorite Songs. It was hard- I started it in May, and would randomly add songs when I thought of them or heard them. It was tough to decide between certain songs for artists, think back to some old classics, and eliminate crap songs that I just love in a moment. Anyways...I finally have the list completed!

What I'm going to do is randomly pick 5 songs each week and discuss them here- I'll post a video of the original (if possible), talk about it's meaning in my life, perhaps dedicate it to someone, and maybe post a video of a cover that is my favorite. Depends on the song...I can say that each of these are on here for a specific reason, and reading over each title makes me think of someone in my life.

Okay I just twittered for someone to pick 5 numbers between 1-100, so watch out for the next blog for the first five choices !!

My life is going really well right now...just living it one day at a time, taking whatever is thrown at me. Have for sure had my share of ups and downs this summer, but I am trying my best to stay positive through it all. I like my job, I'm working really hard on losing weight, I'm happy. I will find out Monday or Tuesday if I am accepted into Mercy Volunteer Corps. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Okay, coming up: 5/100 songs. Woo!
