London Thoughts

Currently at work. Listening to Alicia Keys.

I have completed my projects for the summer by probably 85-90%. There's only 20 minutes left, and I am as they say here blocked. As in I don't know how much more I can do until I have some feedback, critique, and editing on my digital piece.

So for the last 20 minutes I guess I am just reflecting on my experience here in London. I can't believe I am further than the half way point, I can't believe that I have only two more weekends over here and I'm not even spending them in London because we're going to Germany and then Spain after that. I can't see going out any other way.

This trip has been a roller coaster. Like literally at one point we were riding roller coasters. I did not think it was possible to do so much in one summer. It is the most crazy fast paced life ever. It's a bit exhausting but it is so amazing. When I get back it's going to just be a magical dream in my memory. ~ You think that it was an adjustment coming here? No. I think the real adjustment is going to be going back.

There are so many crazy things this life has to offer, and this trip has kind of taught me that you just got to go for them. It may be scary to take that leap of faith, but it is so necessary for you to grow. And I don't think anyone wants to get to the end of their life and feel like they just allowed themselves to get stuck in a rut.

You have one life to live. Write your own story. And few more cliches, but for real.

peace

Memories in Music

Lately I have been going through my bedroom to clean stuff up and get rid of things that are just unnecessary. So during this process I have found old trinkets and mementos and photos. Looking at the photos it just amazes me that I can look at a picture from when I was 4 years old and I am amazed that I can recall the actions that accompany the photo.

Okay so anyway, that just brings me up to today. I was outside just ya know playing some Candy Crush and listening to music. And I just come across a song that just kind of makes me laugh. For me, memories that go along with songs are usually related to relationships I have had.

I just think it’s interesting that for every relationship that I am apart of I usually get introduced to an entirely different body of music. And since it is music that I don’t actively seek out, I usually only listen to what they show me and add it to my playlist. Therefore being that some of these relationships go some years back; here I am probably with these specific songs that remind me of them and they are probably so far past knowing that insignificant song anymore.

So there you go. Memories and music. My take.
