Day 4 & 5 of my 30 Day challenge
Alright folks- yesterday was YOLO themed.... todays theme. HUNGOVER!
I hate YOLO but I think its funny, so yesterdays song was all about getting through the crap and today I regal you with the stupid things I did last night.
To be honest, I'm tried and don't feel like writing, I'll make up for it tomorrow.
You should watch my videos. And you will see the magic.
30 Day Challenge: Day 3
Todays song - MORE LOVE!
I was trying to write songs about - well like a million things- you know the drill super scattered, feeling a multitude of things - I was busy and didn't feel well on top of it all - but I committed to this so here it is! :)
Tonights song is about slipping into love. Remembering it and appreciating it. Because sometimes I just want to think about love rather than the things that make me sad.
So lets breed love everyone! Lets just take a moment to enjoy the times we've felt that.
Also- I eat a blizzard and its really yummy - enjoy vicariously through me.
30 Day Challenge: Day 2
Well, day two has come and gone - and yes there is a song but it has taken forever and actually is still loading. Fingers crossed it is going to work.
Today's song has been inspired by Taylors Swifts new song Red. - In fact I'm re-listening to it now!
Its great, she has this way of saying things that feel so big in a simple way- yet not like the female singers that seem to have brain damage when they are writing. I swear some don't even know how to form a sentence.
Anyways- it is about what I like to call "Big Love" the kind of love that not only takes a part of you but is alive in you always, making it so hard to move on - hell question if you ever should- because how could anything be better than the crazy tornado that it is. And though its the hardest and most painful - I mean the good has too be good to weight the madness. And the good is great.
So, in knowing that love - I constantly struggle to write to a point where I feel okay - or free of the confusing weight.
This song reminded me of the insanely mad love I have for my "Tornado love" , - and I love and hate loving someone this much because its not easy- but its not common. And my love doesn't want to be anything more than existing. I'm not ready to do anything with it at this point in my life - it just can't be my focus, yet some how it is. :P But indirectly - not something I have to put time into.
So today I just let the words fall out of my lips, saying everything I wish I didn't feel. Because I don't want to love him more everyday - but I do, and in many ways I do want to love him more because nothing compares.
So this song is about how there is no use in pretending I don't care wildly for him, and that I don't love him more in every short passing. I just do, and a part of me is embarrassed and wants to bite my lip but hell- YOLO BITCHES! haha I kid, on the YOLO - but we really do only live once and I'm a lucky chick to get to love so fiercely so - thats just it. Big love gets a big thumbs up, and hopefully the songs not bad either.
30 Day Challenge : Day 1
The Challenge you ask?
I write a new song everyday for 30 days and upload the new delights to youtube.
Its no easy task but I was inspired by my friend Renee's ambitious challenge of getting up every day - EVERYDAY - saturday and sundays too - for 30 days to - walk, read, be productive - sometime go back to bed - because no one is perfect but she would get up and make a video- edit it and bring joy to the world. Inspired by that today I bring you my month of ambition.
Todays video - Pretty Little Words
All done with my voice and mouth.
It is about that last 6-8 months- hell maybe more of my life where a lot of people I loved and I had invested myself into made promises I believed and then was left high and dry or waiting, or empty pocketed - or homeless - you name it - promises broken, and words through around like promises at a political debate- big and empty.
So this song developed in my brain yesterday while humming in the shower, today I decided to commit to the tune in my head and put words to it to create its entirety.
So thats it- Day 1. Pretty Little Words.
I'm excited to see the progression, the wins, the inevitable fails and the days where I'm sure I'll cheat - fingers crossed thats not the case.
