This last month I’ve been way more into music that I have been. I’ve always loved music, don’t get me wrong, but there is a difference between loving music, and enjoying it. Recently I’ve been listening, and ENJOYING it, picking apart the words and finding the meanings in it, feeling the base beat through my ear drums, and actually finding it hard to move away from it to do simple things like bathe, or eat. The last few months I’ve been listening to it more and more, starting to enjoy it more. Listening to old songs and for the first time, really hearing it, understanding the words for the practical sense, and not just the literal.

For example, in a Hillary Duff song that I still have memorized, I used to think the lyrics “flying across the floor” meant that you found a slippery floor, laid down on it, and slid like a penguin. Now 16 year old Marina understands it’s more the feeling of “flying” when you have a crush, and that person makes you feel like you can fly, not that you are literally flying. I’ve found I could do this for a lot of my favorite songs in Elementary School. (Well probably not “My Humps” by the Black Eyed Peas, I don’t think there is much more meaning behind that one other than boobs and butts.)

Today I went through and found my old CDs. (yes CDs, not mp3s stored on a flash drive XD [okay that wasn’t funny, I need to stop trying to be funny, gah.]) I’ve actually only uploaded two to my iTunes, Let Go from Avril Lavigne, and Metamorphoses by Hillary Duff. Thinking about it, I think I should upload Britney Spears cd “Oops I did It Again” too, but that’s beyond the point. I do have other old Cds, but those aren’t as deep, like the Lizzie Mcquire show soundtrack, and the movie soundtrack, and Rugrats in Paris isn’t very deep either. (Am I saying Britney Spears, Hillary Duff, and Avril are deep? Oh wow, I just mean there is a deeper meaning than what I saw when I first heard them.)

With this re-falling in love with Music thing, I’m consider getting a new mp3 player/ipod. If I did, it would be an iPod, since those just last longer, and I think I would get an iTouch, since then there is twitter, and facebook, and WORDPRESS, that I can use on my WiFi, oh and the games :). In the last week I’ve gone from 2.5 hours of music on iTunes to 10 hours. I still haven’t even got much Wiz Rock on there yet, since I haven’t finished the 7th book, and the cds I want have spoilers on some of the songs. (I’ve been really looking at The Butterbeer Experience’s album Accio Hot Guy lately.) So wouldn’t it only make sense for me to have a good way to bring my music with me here and there. I do have an mp3 player, but it’s old, and has been banged around a lot, and I can’t always get music on it. It works, but it is also only 4 gb. I think I’ll just wait till I have all 4 gb used, and/or the iTouch comes out with a camera.

Okay, I think that’s it blog readers!

So just about every day, I have at least a few seconds that I consider writing a blog. I just never know how to start. It’s the hardest part, the starting. The laying out of the first paragraph, that deciding what to write. When you haven’t written in a long time, it’s just getting into it again. Once you start writing, it’s like riding a bike, you never forget how to blog, but first you have to get back up and START.

There is no interlude, no transition to this paragraph, it just starts. For Christmas (God did I just do that again? but with a sentence instead) as I was saying…. for Christmas I got a lot of musical related presents. I got 50 dollars in itunes cards, I got an awesome mix “cd” from M-diggle, and The Beatles self titled album. So far I’ve spent half of my iTunes money, on Volume 1 and 2 of Glee- The Music. It’s so fun to listen to iTunes and have a mix of familiar tunes, new tunes, and just fun songs. I love the feeling of having to look at a song to see the title of it, and who it’s by, because I love it, and I notice it’s not a beatle’s song, a Glee song, or an old familiar one, but one that M-dig sent me. I just love it.

Another transition less paragraph, or does this count as a transition? My friend Jess just sent me a random message on MSN messenger.

MEOW

I think it made my day. My day has been filled with snuggie-wearing-in, laying on the couch, listening to my new music, and chasing the cat just because Wednesday-Saturday I was away from him.

While typing this blog, I’m noticing how much has happened in my life that you guys have NO idea about. Well most of you I talk to on a regular basis, with the sexy mac and that, so you know, but there are a few readers who aren’t in that realm. Who don’t know I had to stay at my Gramma’s house for 3 nights because there was a storm and if I wouldn’t of I wouldn’t of had a big family Christmas. Who don’t know that I’m over half done with the last Harry Potter book. Who don’t know that I’m getting a CT scan next month to finally figure out what’s up with my sinuses. Now I don’t think I’m going to sit here and inform you all on every little bit of my life, because it would be boring, I mean some things I need to tell you, like I’m in One Act, which is a theatre competition, since if I make blogs more often, I might mention I have One-Act practice, and you won’t know what that is. I mean, you really still don’t know what One Act is, but maybe I can do that some other time.

Once I get started blogging, it is really easy, I forget how natural the words come to my fingers. But I have over 500 words now, which I think is enough for a post that is the first in a long time.
