Today’s Tune in Tuesday I am going to combine motivation and music into one post. These past couple of months, being a fresh graduate from college, I have been doing a lot of soul searching. Being home now, some days I feel extra lazy, either I sleep in or play video games. I’m going to be real about myself, I am dependent on my parents, as well as live way too comfortably. However, today was a day that I decided and I hope to keep on striving and aspiring to seize the moment. I just completed a long process of interviews for a program for Interac, which is an employment opportunity to teach abroad, I have to realize that everything is so real, and I have to make every moment of it. So today, I went to the gym and I was feeling really lazy and unmotivated, so I went back into the things I knew and tried to find something to help kick start my day. I know having someone like Mallory motivates me to do my best and to strive, but aside from I needed more to electrify me to do my best. So I hope you enjoy the video. The music in the background is Explosions in the Sky playing a song called “Your Hands in Mine.” My favorite line from this video is referring to the hardships of slaves he said “although we were slaves, we will act as we are free so one day our children will be free…”
Today’s Tune in Tuesday I picked the song by Lana Del Rey called “Summertime Sadness.” I’ve been feeling really really old the past couple weeks, part of the reason is because I live in an area where most of the people are retired. There’s a senior center and a retirement center right across my street! So I picked a song that can liven up my life not to mention make me feel young again. In Lana Del Rey’s song she sings about what I think love with across of independence. Mixed with her unique voice, she can bring out the colors of a persons facade. Thank you for listening!
Tune in Tuesday! So Chvrches came out with a new album called The Bones of What You Believe and the song I picked from there is called “Night Sky.” I love this song, it reminds me of an image of when you are looking through the moon roof of a car, and the driver just drives super fast through a dark L.A night! The colors start to swirl and merge with each other and you just lose your train of thought but instead is overcome by a calming and care-free vision. I hope you like this song! Enjoy!
