Story Time!!


Yes, you've heard it folks. I have more music on my play list. And not just two or three. No. It's like, 44 new songs!! The first 20 or so is the Beatles(finally, because I couldn't find their music. You have to put the song in, not the name of the band.). I am really happy. And who wouldn't be? I have a story behind how I started to enjoy the Beatles.

I used to be a really mad person. I would get mad at everyone and everything. I would listen to really hard, heavy rock/alternative music. I went to therapy(and still do) for a while. I took things out on myself, even though it wasn't my fault. I would hurt myself. I wanted to kill myself.

Then I discovered the Beatles. I don't know how I did it, but I did. They changed my life. My mom liked that I started to enjoy listening to them. Since I'm Catholic, I guess it's better to listen to them than what I had been listening to. And now that I am a fan of them, I'm not angry anymore. I'm not hurting myself anymore. I'm not going to kill myself =). I still listen to the same rock music, but not as much. I know more about the Beatles than any other band. And relatives give me Beatles things.

My dad went on a business trip to Oklahoma (kind of far from where I live). And he came back with one of the early, original cassette tape of the Beatles No. 1 hits. I was so happy that I got something so old! My mom bought me a Abbey Road tee for back to school. My Uncle gave me a collectors edition box set of the Beatles great hits. In this CD, there are different types of takes on different songs (ex: Being for the Benefit of Mr.Kite take 1, or being for the benefit of Mr. Kite take 7). I think it is really interesting all of the different takes.

I'll give you all a quiz. On my play list, lets see how many songs you can find that have a few additions added in them. Don't worry, you can hear it. Good luck and God bless!

The Sickness of School

Today were "Down With the Sickness". Well, my sister is. I have a few friends that are sick too. Not only that but I feel it coming to me as well. I can not afford it to get to me because we just started school (which was great by the way). If I get sick and stay home from school it will be really hard to catch up all of that work. Not only that but it's not easy getting my absence
'excused'. I also have to worry about getting the rest of my supplies ( paper towels, hand sanitizer, tissues, latex gloves, etc.). I quoted my moms friend when she said, " It is ridiculous on what the teachers are asking for this year...... What's next, toilet paper?!?! Hey teacher,can I go to the bathroom? Let me get my roll of toilet paper out of my cubby!" I found that funny because it's true! Sometimes we didn't have to bring it in, and I probably wouldn't. But I probably would have thought twice when it came to allergy season.=)

Well for some good news, I have a lot of new 'Groovy Recipes' I can't wait to share with you. I'll give everyone enough time to get each recipe. I hope you enjoy them. They're not mine if you don't like them. =)
