Song #20: Demons (Cover)

This is a great cover from Kurt & Max Schneider with Sam Tsui.

The original song by Imagine Dragons was really great, but what was so good about this cover is that they stripped it down and you can feel the words even more. Plus, how talented are they? It’s like, all the talent in the world went to these three people, plus other youtubers as well. But come on, Kurt can play almost every instrument known to man. Sam & Max can sing and dance and well, look cute at the same time.

Okay, fan-girling a little too much now.
I’ll leave you to it.
Cheers!

One day

A Bad Day

When thoughts of all but one,

are those I am keeping.

When sore though there is none,

for whom I am weeping.

A curtain drawn before the sun,

And I wish to go on sleeping.

– Love & Misadventure, Lang Leav

I am mentally exhausted from all the paper work.

Sometimes, it is really tiring to be taking care of every body and carrying what feels like the weight of the world on your shoulders. I love my family, I love my brothers, I love helping people out, God knows I can’t help it, but sometimes it gets too tiring because everybody gets comfortable that you’ll do everything yourself. Who am I to complain? I did this to myself. If only I learn how to stop taking responsibility for everything.

I just feel mentally and physically exhausted balancing school and family. Being the eldest is really a tough job. It requires a lot of attention, a lot of patience, and a lot of understanding. You always have to give way in order for them to be happy. I love doing those things – it’s just really tiring at times, and frustrating. I feel like the youth is being sucked out of me. I feel like a granny already.

I have things that I would like to do as well. Like, be able to finish reading my books, or have a little privacy once in a while, or be able to visit the salon again after three months (cause I must admit, I can feel my hair becoming damaged). I want to have fun, but in my own terms. I know it may sound so whiny but I don’t get to spend an hour alone for my own stress-relieving activity. Whenever I’m alone, it’s because I’m doing school work. I think my only, truly, alone time is when I SLEEP or whenever I’m in the shower – oh no wait, my little brother still bugs me whenever I’m in the shower, little attention seeker, lol.

So yeah, just wanted to let some negative energy out without hurting anyone.

Here’s a song from The Beatles to those who are working so hard, you guys deserve a year long worth of sleep! Lol.

Enjoy!

Song #18: Your Melody

I stumbled upon this on my iPod earlier. It reminded me of how many hours I would spend on youtube looking for cool artists that are not so famous, yet. Sometimes those are the best finds. It’s like you have your own MTV, with artists that only YOU know. It’s kind of cool. It’s like you own it or something.

I fell in love with Dave Days’ songs and even covers. He always, ALWAYS find ways to make it the most fun, carefree songs.

So here’s Dave Days with Jake Broido, Your Melody.
Enjoy!

Some things that you can’t help doing

I posted last December 3 that I would read one page or one poem a day from Lang Leav’s Love & Misadventure. There are times when an individual can’t help do something that they know they should not do. So, I hate to admit it, but I kind of cheated on that one. I have failed myself. I was supposed to STRICTLY follow that, and it shows I have no self control whatsoever.

Anyway, since it’s out there, I cheated, and I am now on the 39th page, it happens to be a poem I can really really relate to.

I turn away

and close my heart –

to the promise of love

that is luring.

For the past has taught

not to be caught,

in what is not worth pursuing –

To never do

the things I’ve done

that once had led

to my undoing.

Afraid To Love, Lang Leav

I guess it’s not just about loving that special someone. It’s really loving – in general. I like to be closed off, and sometimes keep myself from loving something – sometimes even just liking something – that I know can potentially hurt in the end.Β This is why I love things that I know cannot hurt me, such as loving books, music, and celebrities – because they make you happy but you don’t expect them to love you back.Β It may sound a little, I don’t know – sad?Β I guess, I’m just not a huge fan of getting hurt, I mean who is?

So, that was my way of avoiding things that can potentially make me happy but I get so scared that I run away from it in the end. An individual’s heart can only take so much pain.

So here’s a song that I’ve been obsessing from the day I heard it on The Voice.

Enjoy!

Song#17: Unbelievers

I finally got my grey castle print sweatshirt, my Vampire Weekend sweatshirt (from Romwe)! It is exactly how I expected it. It’s really soft, the print is amazing. It captured the album art of Vampire Weekend’s Modern Vampires of the City.

Plus a good song from them. Cheers!

Daily Prompt: Five Items

fromΒ Daily Post

A classic question, revisited: what are the five items you must have on a deserted island?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us NECESSITIES.

This is a classic question. Five items you must have on a deserted island, or to survive on a deserted island? I don’t know. I guess, I would have to say that my five items are in an emergency bag:

1. iPod+earphones – I never leave home without it.

2. 3 books: Love & Misadventure, Fault In Our Stars, and Eleanor & Park

3. My meds – I never leave home without them either.

4. Maybe a lighter? So I can start a fire to signal for help.

5. A swiss army knife. Just in case.

I would not include my family or friends, because I wouldn’t want them to experience being on a deserted island.

Anyway, the is it. Cheers!
