Last Night’s Grey’s Anatomy And Today’s Sophomore Retreat

Hey. I’m going to start off with a simple statement of disbelief- April chose Jackson! YESSS!! And… they got MARRIED!!! I’m kinda of in disbelief because I was right, not because she chose him. But, seriously, last night’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy was a huge shocker, in many ways. It made me cry, laugh, scream, yell, shout, and other things (I’m not exaggerating- I seriously yelled and screamed and shouted at the TV 🙂 ). It was AMAZING!! Callie and Arizona are actually working things out majorly (YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!), and Meredith and Christina seem to finally be starting to patch up their relationship, which is good. But, anyways, I don’t want to ruin the rest of the details for people who haven’t watched it yet, so I’ll force myself to stop and talk about today instead. Today was actually fun. We had a sophomore retreat, and even though we just stayed in the gym mostly, secluded from the freshmen, juniors, and seniors, it was still pretty awesome. One of my favorite teachers of all time shared something very personal that made me literally sob, but that’s okay, because… well, I can’t tell you, because that might give away some private details, and only he can tell people that. I just have to say this: Mr. ____ (you know who you are, even though you’ll probably never read this), I know I already told you this, but you’re really brave for going up there, in front of everyone, and spilling all of that. And I know I wrote this in the letter I gave to you, but regardless of how you got here, I’m really glad that you’re my teacher.

Alright, that’s it for this post. Sorry I couldn’t tell you more, but I can’t tell anybody. Bye!

My Favorite Memories: The Introduction

Hey! So, due to the ADORABLE pic of my then 2-year-old brother (now 5-years-old) that I posted on Instagram the other day (I’ll post it in a later post, don’t worry!), I have decided to do a new blogging… segment, for lack of a better word. Here’s the deal. Each day, I’m going to post a few of my favorite memories of everyone in my immediate family (at least one picture included) with a description of that memory, and an explanation of why it is a favorite memory. I will go from youngest to oldest, but will save myself for last. Sound good? Good. Alright, I think that’s it. Bye!

P.S. I thought a picture of my family would be fitting, so..:

The Most Awesomest Song Ever

Hey. So I got home later then I thought I would, then forgot about this post for a little while, which is why this post is just getting up now. Anyway, I normally change my favorite song every couple weeks (just a fun fact- I don’t believe I’ve ever said that before). But my current favorite song has been consistent for a couple months now. I swear, I first heard it on Grey’s Anatomy, but I can’t seem to find any proof of that, so maybe I’m going even more crazier than I normally am. Anyways, wanna know what my favorite song is? It’s Gone Gone Gone, by Phillip Phillips. I can’t stop singing it, and it’s been stuck in my head for forever! Not that I’m complaining, because I love it, but it does make it hard to focus sometimes, though. Here’s a music video, with lyrics, plus lyrics at the bottom (I’m going all out 🙂 ):

When life leaves you high and dry
I’ll be at your door tonight
If you need help, if you need help
I’ll shut down the city lights,
I’ll lie, cheat, I’ll beg and bribe
To make you well, to make you well

When enemies are at your door
I’ll carry you away from war
If you need help, if you need help
Your hope dangling by a string
I’ll share in your suffering
To make you well, to make you well

Give me reasons to believe
That you would do the same for me

And I would do it for you, for you
Baby, I’m not moving on
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone
I love you long after you’re gone
And long after you’re gone, gone, gone.

When you fall like a statue
I’m gon’ be there to catch you
Put you on your feet, you on your feet
And if your well is empty
Not a thing will prevent me
Tell me what you need, what do you need

I surrender honestly
You’ve always done the same for me

So I would do it for you, for you.
Baby, I’m not moving on
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone.
I love you long after you’re gone
And long after you’re gone gone gone.

You’re my back bone,
You’re my cornerstone
You’re my crutch when my legs stop moving
You’re my head start,
You’re my rugged heart
You’re the pulse that I’ve always needed
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum my heart never stops beating

For you, for you
Baby I’m not moving on
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
Baby I’m not moving on,
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone.
I love you long, long after you’re gone.

Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum my heart never stops beating for you

And long after you’re gone, gone, gone.
I love you long after you’re gone gone, gone.

Okay, I seriously got all of these lyrics right except for, like, literally two words. And by the way, the above lyrics aren’t mine. I copied and pasted them from here. But seriously, isn’t that song just AMAZING?! I LOVE it! It’s the most listened to on my iPod, I believe. Hang on, let me check…. Yep, it is 🙂 Anyways, I have to go study for my final midterm- Spanish. Which I struggle with. A lot. So, if you excuse me, I’m off to go struggle some more. Bye!
