Before I leave for now….this is to my mother and father, undoubtledly amazing parents. I miss them every moment of every day, and I thought these words fit very well what I’d like to say if I had more time! My parents, my best friends, my idols, the people I respect and admire and adore most in this world. I can’t believe how blessed I am sometimes. Thanks for everything, always! 🙂

***Butterfly***(Corinne Bailey Rae) In my mother’s house
There’s a photograph
Of a day gone past
Always makes me laugh
There’s a little girl
Wary of the world
She got much to learn
Get her fingers burned
An affinity
Between you and me
Cause we’re family
Said that I’d be fine
Give me all your time
And I left your side
Like a butterfly
**Shower me with your love
All of everyday
You make the red rose sun
Shine on me
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
Would you live your life
Like a butterfly

In my mother’s house
There was happiness
I wrapped my myself in it
Was my chrysalis
As my life unfolds
See a pattern through
Of you protecting me
And I protecting you
What was that you’d say
Make your own mistakes
And when you’re grown
Make sure that you remain the same
Now I realise
What was on your mind
When I left your side
Like a butter fly

**Shower me with your love
All of everyday
You make the red rose sun
Shine on me
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
Would you live your life
Like a butterfly

What I’m Listening to: Butterfly, ofcourse!

Tablo, lead rapper of Epik High. 

Here’s a guy who followed his dreams and made it happen….its inspiring enough, and consider how brave he was to leave Stanford and struggle for years. He never knew if it would work out or not, and all odds were against him, but he kept trying and trying and trying. And he made it! Musicians have the most inspiring stories, don’t you think?
Music always speaks to me, makes me think it’ll all be okay. I have a song for every mood (more than one), and when I’m in that mood that song speaks straight to me, lifts me up or brings me down or makes me happy/angry/insecure/satisfied….no matter what, it gives me support, so I get what Tablo is saying. It gives me support to follow my own dreams, no matter how far they lie, and no matter how much I have to fight to get there. Aja Aja!

On a side note, David Choi is the new kid on the block and his voice/music is amazing. The singer/songwriter was recently signed by Warren Chappell (yup, huge label) and was featured on YouTube, where his music first started going out. Get on the wave, because this guy will get famous soon. I think he’s worked hard too, and he does have some great talent. http://www.myspace.com/davidchoimusic
Feb 19 was the one day for music downloads, and I got them! 🙂

And Corinne Bailey Rae is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Breathtaking voice, and beautiful music. Calms me down and makes me smile. Check out this phenomenal performance by 3 of my favorites: John Legend, John Mayer, and Corinne Bailey Rae at the Grammys. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhJKSseiPXE

****Put Your Records On****
Three little birds, sat on my window.
And they told me I don’t need to worry.
Summer came like cinnamon
So sweet,
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete.
Maybe sometimes, we’ve got it wrong, but it’s alright
The more things seem to change, the more they stay the same
Oh, don’t you hesitate.

*Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.
Blue as the sky, sunburnt and lonely,
Sipping tea in the bar by the roadside, (just relax, just relax)
Don’t you let those other boys fool you,
Got to love that afro hair do.
Maybe sometimes, we feel afraid, but it’s alright
The more you stay the same, the more they seem to change.
Don’t you think it’s strange?

*Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.


You’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.
‘Twas more than I could take, pity for pity’s sake
Some nights kept me awake, I thought that I was stronger
When you gonna realise, that you don’t even have to try any longer?
Do what you want to.

*Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.


Oh, you’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow

What I’m Listening To: Like a Star, Corinne Bailey Rae
