Jobs I Wish I Had

Hey guys!

I don't have a job, aside for babysitter because I'm only a ninth grader. Anyways here's a list of jobs I wish I had.

Bookstore Owner
I'm a big fan of books. I love books! Books are my life. I'm one of those huge fangirls. Anyways, it would be so awesome if I could own a bookstore. Though I'd probably end up keeping all the books for myself. But it'd still be pretty awesome right?!

I grew up writing books and I still right all the time. Writing is so much fun to me, and I think it'd be awesome to have people read my stories. I just enjoy creating a whole new world. I love creating an amazing place to just escape.

Fashion Designer
I love fashion, art, and DIY. So being a fashion designer just makes sense to me. It'd be so cool to be able to create my own clothes! To open stores, to have my clothes on a runway, to have celebrities wear them. It'd be so cool.

I love art so it'd be amazing to be an artist. To have my art hung up in people's homes, in art galleries, coffee shops, museums, etc. The joys of painting, drawing, creating an animation movie, taking photos... I just absolutely love it.

What are your dream jobs?

My Top 10 Favorite Romantic Songs

Hey guys!

Through out my life, I've heard several adorably romantic songs. I know plenty of you have probably heard more, since I've only lived 14 years (though that feels like an incredibly long time - though it isn't really). Nevertheless, I've heard so many romantic songs that I thought I'd make a list of my top 10 favorite romantic songs. It's just my personal opinion. Some people might not even find all these songs romantic, but I do.

1. You Are My Sunshine by Jimmie Davis
I don't know why but I've always found this song very romantic... Is that weird? Honestly, sometimes I'll just sing myself to sleep with this song. I'm not sure if Jimmie Davis sang the original or not, but it's the closest I could get to the original.

2. Tonight You Belong To Me by Patience and Prudence
If you read my previous post, I am obsessed with this song. There's just something about it that I love. It makes me kind of sad though...

3. Can't Take My Eyes Off You by Frank Sinatra
I didn't expect to have this much Frank Sinatra in this list, but oh well. I love this song. It was my aunt and uncle's first dance at their wedding. After that I was like, "Oh my gosh, Frank Sinatra. Frank Sinatra. Frank Sinatra!" So yeah, this got me all into his music. Isn't it fabulous though?!

4. Love Me Tender by Elvis Presley
I love this song. I'm not a big Elvis fan but I do love some of his songs like this one. I originally found out about this song from my music class and after that I became obsessed over it.

5. So Close by Jon McLaughlin
For those of you Disnerds, you should know this. This is the song from Enchanted that Giselle and Robert danced to at the ball. Don't you think it's wonderful? It'd be a nice song for prom actually.

6. The Way You Look Tonight by Frank Sinatra
I love Frank Sinatra. I have no idea. There's something about his music that I just love. Especially in mornings. His voice is magical. For those nice cool mornings, listening to his music is just the best.

7. I Can't Stop Loving You by Frank Sinatra
Another fabulous song by the fabulous Frank Sinatra. You can't deny that this is amazing.

8. Can't Help Falling In Love by Elvis Presley
Here's another Elvis song that I'm in love with.

9. Kiss Me Quick by Elvis Presley
One more Elvis. Aside for the ones above I can only think of one more song by him.. It's kinda sad since he's actually not that bad. If you guys have any suggestions feel free to leave them in the comment! :) Anyways, you have to admit this is an amazing song! I love it. Normally I don't like happy songs, but I love this song even though it's upbeat and all.

10. SOS by Abba
I love Abba. Honestly they're one of my favorite bands! ^_^ I became obsessed with them after the movie Mamma Mia! This was one of my favorite songs, and it still is.

There are so many more amazing songs but for some reason I only decided to put 10 in. Oh well. If it were longer, the next song would have been Asleep by The Smiths. Anyways see you soon!

Also what do you guys think?

Tonight You Belong To Me

Hey guys!

Do any of you guys watch Bunheads? I love that TV show! It's about ballerinas. If you don't already watch it, I highly suggest that you start watching it. It's on ABC Family.

Also, do you guys know the song Tonight You Belong To Me? It's an old song. It's super sweet! I love that song. I love old music in general, because of all the history that comes along with it. They usually tell so many beautiful and amazing tales. Anyways, back to Tonight You Belong To Me... It's quite a popular song and there have been several covers made, in TV shows, by actresses/actors, singers, YouTube stars, and "normal" people. Zooey Deschanel sang a cover, which you can look up on YouTube. Anyways back to my main point, on one of the episodes of Bunheads, the main character Michelle and her brother does a cover of the song. That cover is by far my favorite. I've embed a YouTube video of the cover by Michelle and her brother - it's not in the best quality, but it's the best that I could find.

Now, here is a video of the original version of the song. I really love the original as well.

This song honestly for some reason makes me kinda sad... I don't know why.

Tell me what you guys think in the comments? If you find a cover that you really like, please feel free to share it. I think that The Lennon Sisters, did a pretty good cover.

Happy Birthday Shakespeare!

Hey guys!

It's Shakespeare's birthday! Happy birthday! It's not that big of a deal, but still...

Today, at school we all dressed up as a character from his plays. I dressed up as Hippolyta from a Midsummer Night's Dream. Hippolyta - for those of you who don't know here - is the Amazonian queen, which I think is quite awesome. It was awesome! During our breaks (break/recess & lunch break) we had plays going on. 6th - 10th grade had to each perform something. They all did skits, except for my grade. We performed a song (I wasn't one of them thankfully, I have horrible stage fright).

Some of the performances were really awesome. However one of the performances was of Macbeth, and that one really upset me because Lady Macbeth dies before Macbeth in the play, but in the performance she died after Macbeth. My brother had a performance of modern Romeo & Juliet (he was Juliet :P) which was quite interesting to say the least.

Musical Monday #10

Hey guys!

Sorry I missed the previous Musical Mondays. Here's this weeks!

This week's song is Breathe by Anna Nalick. I should really listen to her. I mean half the time I'm freaking out over something. I should really listen and just breathe.

I hope you like the song! I've heard this song a million times, and I'm still not bored of it. :) That's a good thing right? :P

Anyways enjoy!

Yeah, I know this is one of the most depressing topics I could possibly ever talk about. But, I'm just curious, how do you guys deal with death? I just found out one of my friends died. Well I found out a few days ago, but it's still tearing me apart. We weren't that close. We were internet friends, but then again most of my friends are online nowadays with all the moving that my family does. So it felt like she was just one of the people I moved away from but stayed close with. Her name was Alicia Gutscher, more commonly known as Whisperwings on DeviantArt. Here is her Cancer Blog.

She died in February and I feel awful for not checking in on her more often. School has just been so busy and I know that's an awful excuse and I can't forgive myself. I know, there's nothing I could have done, but I just feel like I don't know.. I just feel really bad for not talking to her recently. I mean she was a friend of mine. She was one of the reasons that I focused on my art and started taking it seriously. And now she's just... Gone. I mean it doesn't seem real. I feel like if I refresh my DeviantArt tab often enough I'll find a message in my box saying that she's replied. But I know it's not ever going to happen. It hurts so much. I feel like I shouldn't be crying over her though. I mean her family should be. Her close friends. I feel like I don't have the right to, but I still do. I can't help it.

She died of stage 4 liver cancer. The incurable type. I don't know what's happened to her. I don't believe in heaven or any of that, because I'm atheist (I hope this doesn't upset anyone) but I do believe in the possibility. And right now I'm just hoping that it is real and that she made it to heaven and is happy there. And if there is internet in heaven and she happens upon this post, I would like her to know that I miss her terribly and we all do and that we hope that you're happy.
