I fell off the bandwagon. Obviously.
The challenge was to do a post a day with the music thing and I failed. Miserably.
I haven't touched the blog because my mind has been a chaotic disaster. Should have been fodder for blog after blog, but I couldn't even wrap my head around my thoughts let alone my words.
So the last days of disco for the music challenge I suppose I can wrap up and get it over with. In true slacker fashion, just so I can finally say I completed it. So I know that I actually did what I set out to do. I may have taken the long way, and not exactly followed the actual rules of the challenge, but I did it.
Day 23: A Song You Want to Play At Your Wedding
There is only one song I know I need. One song that I know I have to have, and that's mostly because of what it means to me, and that is also because of who it is I want to spend the rest of my life with. No one else needs to understand it or like it. It's ours.
Day 24: A Song You Want to Play at Your Funeral
Short of Will Farrell singing Dust in the Wind and shouting "You my boy, Blue" I don't think I can imagine my own funeral.
I can't think of myself dead. I don't know that I can see anyone mourning me aside from my family, which is obvious.
I never had those thoughts of wondering who would show up and care if I died. I guess I assumed that no one would really bat an eyelash. But I guess I would want to know that I was loved. That I was forgiven for anything I may have done to anyone. I would want to know that the good I did outweighed anything else. That people remembered I did try to make them happy as often as I possibly could.
Whatever people are reminded of when I'm gone is what they're reminded of. I just hope it's all positive.
But if there are a couple I could think of
This one always makes me think of my dad
Day 25: A Song that Makes Me Laugh
Glad to be off the funeral topic. Especially since I miss my dad more than ever right now.
But songs that make me laugh there are a few.
You can't go wrong with Lonely Island!
Day 26: A Song I can Play on an Instrument
Bet most of you don't know that I was a drummer. Not like a tattoo covered rock badass like Tommy Lee or anything, but I was played all those cadences you used to hear at football games and in parades back in the day.
It wasn't ALL I did in high school, I was also a cheerleader, played soccer, did every club known to man. It wasn't all white and nerdy.
Day 27: A Song I Wish I Could Play
I inherited a piano when my grandmother died. Now granted she wasn't my biological grandmother (my mom's mom died before I was born and my dad's mom lived in Florida most of my life so we weren't as close) but she was basically the only grandmother I ever knew.
I used to tinker and play and what not, and I can read music and stuff, but I could never quite tickle the ivories the way I had always wished I could. My piano now sits at my cousins house, since I haven't lived in a place with enough room for it since being an adult, but someday I hope to have it in my own home, and have the ability to play at least ONE song well.
Day 28: What Song Makes you Feel Creative and Inspired?
A song in and of itself doesn't make me feel creative per say. Maybe the thoughts provoked by it or the sentiment. The particular person who it makes me think of that then inspires me. It's a cycle.
Right now I'm inspired to make sure someone knows how I feel about them. Because I mean every single word.
I'd go hungry, I'd go blind for you...
Day 29: A Song From Your Childhood
Day 30: A Song that Makes You Want to Help the World, the Environment, End poverty, Help Society...
Ok seriously, this is where all the cheesy cliche's come in right?
And I'm spent.
