Have 11+ days already passed since I first starting blogging on this WordPress site? It’s amazing how time slips through your fingers when you’re not fully aware of day and night. Yes, I sleep and wake up at my usual time for work, but I don’t realize when the trickles of light enter the horizon or when they slowly fade away. I’m not sure if I’m not being observant, or because my mind if preoccupied with other matters, but, it just seems like summer (or my life in general) has been slipping away. But, I’ll be writing about that tomorrow.
Onto the 30 day challenge…
Day 10: Put your music player on shuffle and write down the 10 song that play
*Note: Since reformatting Winston (le computer), I haven’t downloaded any music back onto it, so I’ve been relying on various radio stations on Pandora…. and this is what it has given me (all liked music, by the way!)
- No light, No light by Florence + the Machine
- Hands all Over by Maroon 5
- Home by Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros
- Piggy bank by Never Shout Never
- She is Love by Parachute
- Boston by Augustana
- Turn on Billi by The Pierces
- Make it Mine by Jason Mraz
- These Walls by Teddy Geiger
- Porcelain by Patrick Stump
After the 15th or so song that Pandora played the music tempo picked up considerably — I’ve recently gotten really into post-hardcore and punk music again. Some metal too… so please give me suggestions if you love those genres too!
11: Your Family
I’m the only girl in a family of boys. Three brothers, in fact, one older than me by two years, and two younger brothers 5 years and 7 years apart respectively. My parents are still together, going strong (maybe a little too strong sometimes, if you get my drift…), and I live with my grandparents and one of my aunts.
At one point, a decade or more so ago, in the tradition of a traditional Vietnamese family, I lived in a house with my grandparents, two aunts, three uncles, and my own immediate family. Yes. That’d be 12 people in a house. And it was great (for the most part). I miss having a big family, but at the same time, it’s nice to hear myself think.
This post hasn’t been particular interesting, I think, but in the spirit of a challenge, I felt the need to write on the prompts, however mundane my answers seem to be. I’ve been up to a lot lately – mainly broadening my experiences through the written word and contemplating. Tomorrow is a new day filled with events, however, so hopefully that’ll give me a well needed rest from my thoughts. Time will tell.
So, I’ll leave you with this, dear reader: how do you “stop” thinking?
