I’m going to college! (Advice welcome)

So I’ll be leaving for college pretty soon and so I probably won’t be able to post for a while 😦

I’m really excited about college and I can’t wait to meet new people and have amazing experiences! If anyone has any advice whatsoever please share!

Poem-12

I will write in words of fire.
I will write them on your skin.
I will write about desire.
Write beginnings, write of sin.
You’re the book I love the best,
your skin only holds my truth,
you will be a palimpsest
lines of age rewriting youth.
You will not burn upon the pyre.
Or be buried on the shelf.
You’re my letter to desire:
And you’ll never read yourself.
I will trace each word and comma
As the final dusk descends,
You’re my tale of dreams and drama,
Let us find out how it ends.

 – Neil Gaiman

 Dark Sonnet

I don’t think that I’ve been in love as such
although I liked a few folk pretty well
Love must be vaster than my smiles or touch
for brave men died and empires rose and fell
for love, girls follow boys to foreign lands
and men have followed women into hell
In plays and poems someone understands
there’s something makes us more than blood and bone
And more than biological demands
for me love’s like the wind unseen, unknown
I see the trees are bending where it’s been
I know that it leaves wreckage where it’s blown
I really don’t know what I love you means
I think it means don’t leave me here alone

-Neil Gaiman

Melancholia

the history of melancholia

includes all of us.

me, I writhe in dirty sheets
while staring at blue walls
and nothing.

I have gotten so used to melancholia
that
I greet it like an old
friend.

I will now do 15 minutes of grieving
for the lost redhead,
I tell the gods.

I do it and feel quite bad
quite sad,
then I rise
CLEANSED
even though nothing
is solved.

that’s what I get for kicking
religion in the ass.

I should have kicked the redhead
in the ass
where her brains and her bread and
butter are
at …

but, no, I’ve felt sad
about everything:
the lost redhead was just another
smash in a lifelong
loss …

I listen to drums on the radio now
and grin.
there is something wrong with me
besides
melancholia.

-Charles Bukowski

Poem-10

Summer is all about fun, sun and lazing around right? And whats more summer-y than sugary pop songs? I’m not really a pop/techno/dance music kinda girl but it’s summer; I’m free, the livin’ is easy and so what the hell.

CALL ME MAYBE- CARLY RAE JEPSEN

\
Have you been living under a rock?! Who hasn’t heard this song? It’s perfect for summer romance and makes me think of sunshine and rainbows and kisses. Gimme a few minutes while I listen to it again for the thousandth time. ( I try to stop but this song is just so addictive! It sucks you in!)

GLAD YOU CAME- THE WANTED

\

Listening to this song just reminds me of lazy parties and meeting new people and it makes me wanna have a vacation like the one in the video. Summery goodness 🙂

CHASING THE SUN- THE WANTED

While I’m no sun-chaser, this song is perfect for late night summer parties. The chorus is so catchy!

PAYPHONE- MAROON5

\

I love this song , although I think I’ve been listening to it way too often and now it’s stuck on a loop in my head. Oh well, the lyrics are good and while it’s not especially summery, it’s good.

ONE MORE NIGHT- MAROON5

I loved this song the minute I heard the opening! I think I just like Adam Levine’s voice. Anyway, this song reminds me of stuff and so I listen to it repeatedly.It’s like “Call Me Maybe” in the sense that it makes me want to listen to it on repeat all the time!

WE ARE YOUNG- FUN ft JANELLE MONÁE

We are young goddammit and we can set the world on fire! 😀

TITANIUM- DAVID GUETTA ft SIA

Sia’s voice is heavenly and the lyrics are pretty good. This song also has that ‘nothing to lose’ feel that’s very characteristic of summer.

SHAKE IT OUT- FLORENCE + THE MACHINE

Florence is just so beautiful and artistic. This song reminds me to shake of my problems for a while and just live. And isn’t that the essence of summer? Apart from the heat of course.

BURN IT DOWN- LINKIN PARK

I’ve been a LP fan for years and their previous album kinda left me cold and so I was glad to hear this song!

SOMEBODY THAT I USED TO KNOW- GOTYE ft KIMBRA

THIS SONG! This song is not going away for this year at least. It captures the feeling of kinda liking someone even if they don’t mean the same thing to you anymore and how much it hurts when people you know start acting like strangers. I love the emotion in their voices, especially the Kimbra part

So there you have it, 10 songs I’ve been listening to over and over. Have a favorite that isn’t on this list? Let me know, I’m always looking for new music!
