Songs to Listen to While Deep in the Midst of a Top Secret Operation that May or May Not Result in You Getting a Boyfriend

I can’t talk long or give you any details (like the subject line says – top secret) but I’ve been listening to these songs a LOT the last few days and I will be relying heavily upon them in the coming week.

1. Hurricane by MS MR
I jumped the gun
so sure you’d split and run
ready for the worst
before the damage was done

2. Please by Selah Sue (feat. Cee Lo Green)
so please, please, please help me
give me some kind of sign
please, please, please, please, please
I want to be somebody, somebody, I want someone to be mine

3. Kiss Me by Ed Sheeran
I’m falling for your eyes
but they don’t know me yet

4. Keep You by Wild Belle
I've got a pretty face and I wear a nice dress
why can't I keep you?

5. They Could Be Wrong by Lianne La Havas
the way you smile when I'm speaking
I feel how clearly you see me

6. VCR by The xx
watch things on VCRs
with me and talk about big love
I think we’re superstars
you say you think we are the best thing

7. Little Bit by Lykke Li
hands down
I'm too proud for love
but with eyes shut
it's you I'm thinking of

8. Dead Sea by The Lumineers
like the dead sea, you told me I was like the dead sea
you'll never sink when you are with me
honey can't you see
I was born to be your dead sea

9. Not With Haste by Mumford & Sons
and I will love with urgency
but not with haste



Over and out.

you’re like a big parade through town

Ugh, you guys. I don’t know what the deal is. I suck at blogging now. Which is dumb, because I’m definitely not too busy, and I have totally had ideas for posts. But I’m not motivated at all. I get halfway through writing something and then save it on my computer and forget to go back to it. Or, in the case of the hockey post I was working on (which no one would have read anyway), I got depressed about it because there’s probably going to be a lockout and I won’t get to see any NHL hockey for a long time. (I refuse to start stoking the fire of my Avalanche feelings until I know I have a good reason to.)

I EVEN LOST A FOLLOWER. I DON’T EVEN CARE ABOUT FOLLOWERS, BUT SOMEONE UNFOLLOWED. That’s how boring and lame my blog has been the last couple months.

I’m going to try super hard to start caring about my blog again. I promise. Unfortunately this post probably won’t make YOU start caring about my blog again, but I can’t control that. However, I can show you a hilarious and adorable picture of Leo. So here’s that.


I’ve also been listening to a ton of Regina Spektor lately, which reminds me a lot of my freshman year of college, but not in a bad way. Anyway, her most recent album is amazing and I’m mad I waited so long to listen to it.

In other news, my life is great right now. Everything in the last post but heartily reiterated. Things are going really pretty fantastically well. Like, yesterday I had such a good day that even though I got home at 11:30 and should have been tired, I had so much energy from having too much fun with the friends I’ve made at work that I didn’t fall asleep until almost 4. Yeah. Maybe I’ll write more about that sometime.
