My song of the day and other things

Its a music day. I have these days from time to time where I find really awesome songs, download them, listen to the shit out of them, then wonder why I’m not hearing anything new. It seems to only happen at random too…I can’t just go out and look for it. It has to find me. 

My downloaded song today is called Unbuild It, by The 2 Bears. I heard it on the local underground college radio Lover got me hooked on, and it is so good. I was a little surprised because it has kind of a pop sound to it and this station doesn’t generally seem to play pop sounding songs (but, I’ve been listening to it for only a few days…so…). In any case, love it.

Also, Line of Fire by Junip. I had the treat of hearing some of their other songs, and I kind of love their sound. Slow and dreamy. 

To kick it up a notch, Sports, by Fufanu. I could see myself working out to this. If I worked out, that is. Nice even tempo. Definitely getting added to the hula hooping playlist.

Lover and I took another dance class last night, Tango and Hustle. The Tango was hard, I do not have the steps down for that, but the Hustle….ooooo. I like that one. I have that one down pretty good I think and it’s SO FUN getting spun around. I’m hoping we’ll get to do more with that. Or even just adding on our own stuff to it. Since we started dancing, half the songs I hear now I’m thinking about dance steps to. I think that’s a good thing. 

Lots of good things going on. I’m pretty appreciative of them all.

Day 60

Two whole months of positive thinking! Go me! 

It’s amazing to me how much this has changed my outlook on life. In these past 60, I can literally only think of two days where it was difficult to find positive things in my day, and while those two days I stretched really hard I still found things to be happy about. Every day it gets easier to find things to be happy about, even when shitty things happen.

1. Casual Friday. I like to dress nicely for work, but sometimes it’s pretty awesome to throw a hoodie on with some jeans and call it good. Bonus for not doing anything with my hair. I’m sure I looked like an employee of high value and knowledge when I was introduced to the new temp. 

2. I listened to a partial cover of one of my favorite songs. It was beautiful, and while I’m sure the artist didn’t do it just for me, it felt like it and made my day. I’m hoping to hear the full version soon.

3. Dr. John. Was introduced to his music tonight and he’s super cool. I’m liking it. There’s definitely a New Orleans voodoo vibe going on there.

5. Went to a concert with my sister. One of my other sisters was supposed to go and backed out at the last minute so I went. It was super fun, and as a bonus, I ran into a friend there. 

Now I’m decompressing, watching some mystery science theater 3000 and hoping I can fall asleep soon. It’s been a good day.
