Chicagoem & A Song Inspired by Indiana

Last weekend I went to Indiana (via Chicago) to celebrate my sister’s graduation from Nursing School. This is what I created. Inspired by a delightfully humid and soft drive (or two).

Chicagoem:

A suburban paradise

With 1 tree for every street

and 1 wish for every dream

An elegant escape

for the corn-belt’s just a drive away.

Or so, they say.

And as we landed I lovedĀ all the little Chicago houses, with the little Chicago cars and the little Chicago streets and the little Chicago bars. And so I landed on the American Dream (but I just wanted to sit in Holliday Park and read).

A Song Inspired by Indiana- Make Today Great (in development)

VERSE 1

The lightening strikes without a clash or a clap

A silent vigilante, always coming back

The thunder screams every once in a while

It roars, it roars but it smiles

and the fields are smiling too.

They smile for me and you….

CHOURS

So come run through the storm with me

Come splash through the puddles and please

Remember,

You are a part of me

Come dance in the yard while it rains

Don’t forget we’ll never live a moment

that is

the same

Let’s live for today

Let’s fly a little out of our way

Make today great (double clap)

Make today great (double clap)

VERSE 2

The sun beats down, hot on our backs

Summer is here, there is no reason to slack

A cool breeze finds us

it reminds us

now’s the time

now, now now’s the time…

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Last week I finished reading Stephen Chbosky’s “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”.

I think this is my favorite book (probably because i read it most recently hehe). The first half was really funny, so many good lines and funny moments.

“It was so delicious, it almost scared me.”

I think people out of high school with some life experience will especially appreciate some of the scenarios and the humor. It was like looking back and going yup been there. The author really captures that phase of life.

“Charlie, we accept the love we think we deserve.”

The end was very touching and it taught me some valuable lessons. I won’t ruin it for you but basically in order to really love someone you need to show them you love them through actions. Love isn’t something imaginary in your head, it is proven. Wise words Charlie. SuperForest introduced me to tis video and I think it helps illustrate what I mean.

You see, saying those things and talking about them (though beautiful) doesn’t mean anything. Neither does thinking them. To really love someone you need to do those things and share the experiences with the person. It can’t be in your head, because that’s not love, that’s just a crush. I shared this with a friend and they said it would be good on stage… I think i’m writing a monologue : )
