Below is a note I wrote originally for a note on facebook. It was written and posted on August 25 2008. I thought I would post it here too, just in case people that read this blog dont read my notes on facebook. Its hard to tell who reads my blogs here and my notes on facebook, so if you read both you might see some repeated blogs/notes. As for whats going on in my life, things are about to gear up with my bell choir starting rehersals soon, and school starting the day after labor day.

It's been a while since I wrote a note on here...I guess thats just what happens when you get a blog that you tend to write on more. My parents left this morning at about 10 with my brother to drop him off at Western and move him into his dorm, leaving me at home. Im definatly enjoying the quiet right now. I've been watching a few original songs that people have written on youtube, and got inspired to write my own. Just dont expect me to sing it anytime soon. I thought I would share the lyrics with you in this note. I thought I would title it "It's a New Day after all".

Open your eyes sleepy head
Roll out of bed
stare out the window
its a new day after all

Here I am
Here I am again
staring out this window
the only change today
is what Im thinkin

Who am I
and what am I doin here
I've been wandering all these years
and I've finally found where I want to be

So I'll roll out of bed
rub those sleepy eyes of mine
look out the window
and run out the door
its time to great the new day
and a new dream
that is so close to comin true

There isn't a long backstory to this one like there is for some of the songs I've written over the past 2-3 years. It started off with something I heard a celebrity say recently. THey said that when they wake up in the morning, they think "Great! Anouther day!". Who could be our last day here on Earth, so I might as well apreatiate it. The third stanza sums up the past year and a half of my life. FOr quite a while I was really questioning what I was doing in Midland, and what I was doing with my life, hence the number of times Ive changed my major. Its been during this summer that I finally found what I want to do, and where I want to be.
