So this may seem funny or odd or totally cool to you. I'm not really sure how you will respond and actually each of "you" could have a different response.
I'm about to share something with you that I think is a little known fact about me. You see, I feel like my persona wouldn't clue anyone in to this fact. Except maybe those people closest to me. Some of my family members might know and a few close friends are probably on the same wavelength as me.
I'm pretty sure my mom won't think twice about this and Mr. Ruggedly Handsome will just chuckle to himself about it. My brother would probably be appalled and my dad would just shake his head and sigh.
Even though it isn't an earth-shattering revelation, it is something I have only recently come to either know, or accept, about myself.
Are you ready?
I am a pop music junkie!
Ah. I feel better now that is out of the table. I realized it today while I was working on my paper at the Starbuckles of my choosing. I had everything set up on my table. Organized stacks of papers that might be cited. Computer plugged in and charging. A hot latte and an ice water. Phone handy, but not in sight, so as not to be distracting.
I had planned on typing to the music / noises of the Bucks, but I was sitting next to two very chatty women. After a minute or two of distracted eavesdropping, I realized I better plug in to some of my own music for two reasons. 1. To drown out their conversation, which wasn't particularly interesting to me and probably because I disagreed with most of what they were saying and 2. So I could actually focus and get some work done (because that was the whole purpose in paying 2.80 for my latte: to have a nice study environment and have the caffeine as a bonus.)
Anyway, I turned on iTunes and picked a song that I thought would be a good start to my writing mindset.
As I was sitting I realized I could be certified as a pop music junkie because I was skipping over my classicals (which are usually good to study to) and choosing songs with a bit of a pop.
Here is a random sampling of some of the tunes I most enjoyed today:
1. Chances by Five for Fighting
2. Big Girls Don't Cry by Fergie
3. All I Need by Mat Kearny
4. Maybe by Ingrid Michaelson (new purchase today)
5. Between the Lines by Sara Bareilles
6. My Wish by Rascal Flats
7. Crush by David Archuletta
8. Hollywood's Not America by Ferras
9. No Air by Jordan Sparks and Chris Brown
10. Shakespeare by Susan Cagle Band
Ahh. It was a lovely sounding day.
I'm here! And I'm definitely writing... (and listening.)
