Your Smile On Fire

...from the song Xavia

songs that remind me (maybe i'll post more later?)

     Wow. Okay, first off, bravo to Haley for attempting to write a novel of approximately 100k words. (Correct me if I'm wrong on that, Haley.) Because my goal is 50k, which I guess is okay since it's YA. It better be okay. But anyways, I was up until midnight last night working on it... the words were just flowing. So with all I wrote today I'm up to 41k. And I'm so excited!

     There's only one problem. I don't know how it's going to end! I mean, okay, yeah, I basically know how it's going to end up. I know where the main girl is going to end up and all... the only thing I don't know is what's going to happen with her and the main guy.

     And it's driving me practically insane. I mean, the author should know what's going to happen to her characters, right?


     In other news, NOBODY HAS HEARD OF SUPERFIRE. I asked one of my friends last night and then asked Mich today. Neither of them had heard of it. Please, somebody. Save me. Oh, wait, I also asked another one of my friends a few days ago and he hadn't heard of it either. I forgot about him. And nobody has heard of it. I swear it's a real movie...okay, yeah, it was a made-for-TV movie, but still.


     Ha. Okay, last night I was trying to think of songs that remind me of people/places/times. Like, songs that remind me of a specific something. And so I'm coming up with a list of them.

  1. When I Think About Angels (Jamie O'Neal)
  2. You're Beautiful (James Blunt)
  3. 100 Years (Five for Fighting)
  4. L.O.V.E. (Ashlee Simpson)
  5. Girlfriend (Avril Lavigne)
  6. Who We Are (Hope Partlow)
  7. Stay Beautiful (Taylor Swift)
  8. Teardrops on My Guitar (Taylor Swift)
  9. The Funeral (Band of Horses)
  10. Fly (Sugar Ray)


     And of course there are plenty more. But I listened to the opening lines to Teardrops on My Guitar. And, omg, it's just as sad as it ever was. So now I have to listen to Fly to cheer myself up. All of these songs have a story behind them and maybe some day I'll tell them. Some of the stories are good (Fly, Who We Are) and others are pretty sad (Teardrops on My Guitar, When I Think About Angels), and still others make me mad actually (L.O.V.E.).


     Anyways. I would write more but I really do need to work on my novel. Figure out this whole "relationship" thing and what will happen with it.


     Oh, and also, I really have been pretty happy lately. Good things are happening. Little good things and bigger good things, but basically just happy stuff.
