30 Songs in 30 Days Challenge

Day 15 - A song that describes you

"She Aint Right" - Lee Brice

This is me to a T--Every line and every word, exactly.

She got her daddy's tongue and temper
Sometimes her mouth could use a filter
God shook his head the day he built her
Oh, but I bet he smiled.
She loves and lives her life unruly
Tears up that dirt road up in a dualy
Dangerous, absolutely.
And in a little while...
She'll be roundin' that corner on three wheels
Ain't slowin down, yellin "Come on, jump in"
Always up to somethin, crazy got nothin' on her..

30 Songs in 30 Days Challenge

Sorry, I've gotten a day or two behind. I've just been completely swamped with homework and a lack of sleep. Do forgive me.. but our challenge continues

Day 6 - A song that reminds you of somewhere

"Home" - Daughtry

No, it doesn't remind me of home. It reminds me of Barnesville. A few times in a row this song came on my iPod on my trips down there.. it finally stuck as a theme song. The particular line that stands out to me is "The miles are getting longer the closer I get to you." It's a true statement about the drive down. The closer you get to that rinky dink town, the longer the drive seemed to get. The first 2 hours seemed to fly. The last 30 mins, though, sometimes felt like a lifetime.

Day 7 - A Song that Reminds you of a Certain Event

"I'm not gonna cry" - Corey Smith

Day 4 - A Song that makes you sad

"How far is Heaven" - Kitty Wells

Okay, so let me be start by addressing, this isn't a song on regular iPod rotation. My mom used to sing this to me when I was little when we were waiting for my dad to come home when he was working late. When my dad is in the hospital, for some reason I hum this song while I walk down the halls to his ICU unit or when I leave and come back home.. So you can see, not only from the lyrics, but from the story that I share with the song why it can easily tear me up on even the happiest of days

30 songs in 30 days Challenge -- plus another story

So yesterday I had a test in Networking. After the test, we reviewed the answers as a class to kind of give us an idea of how each of us did. I missed this one particular question, and kicked myself in the butt about it--it was a "duh" moment. Later that night at trivia, I got a chance to redeem myself. The question topic was Computers. My first initial thought was, the only answer to this I could give you was If they asked who was one of the original creators of Compaq computers--One of them is Billy's neighbors in the mountains.. otherwise we were screwed-even though I am an MIS major.. LOW AND BEHOLD the question was "What is Modem short for?" which was the exact same question I missed earlier that day on the test.
I was the only person in the entire restaurant that got it correct, might I add. I guess I got a chance to redeem myself.. and at least I got it right when it mattered, at trivia :)

Okay. Back to the challenge!

Day 3 - A song that makes you happy

"Mandolin Moon" - Sister Hazel

This song always seems to put me in the best mood possible. It's my alarm tone every morning in hopes that it starts everyday off on the right side of the bed. If you could see me right now, I'm smiling just listening to it. I'll leave it for you to enjoy as well!

Day 2 - Your least favorite song

"Love Lockdown" - Kanye West

This may not be my least, least favorite, but Kanye West was one of the first people that came to mind. I hate Kanye West with a deep, burning passion. I think he's a jerk that just needs to keep his mouth shut. No, my opinion has nothing to do with his controversy with Taylor Swift at the MTV awards last year or whenever that was. I just think he talks too much about things he really has no place to talk about.

Challenge Day #1 - 30 songs in 30 days

I decided to start the 30 songs in 30 days. Each day I will be given a different criteria, and I am to chose a song that I feel best fits it.

Day 1 - Your favorite song

"The Dance" -Garth Brooks

I cannot actually find a decent video of Garth, himself, singing "The dance," but here is one that is probably better. This is Tony Arata. He is the mastermind behind this beautiful, iconic song. I never cease to get chill bumps when I listen to this song, or cry when I really analyze the sweetly transcribed lyrics. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have for many years.

How about more proof of what a oddball 21 year old I am? Yesterday Billy and I decided to cancel our beach trip I told you about in the previous blog. Due to lack of funds and family obligations. My dad needs someone to come and stay with him while my mom and sister are away for a church trip of sorts. I, oddly enough, and actually humbled and thrilled with this decision.
What a loser!
You know what else it will be? The end of the summer sessions for meeee!

Ok, I'm going to start studying for my Business Statistics Final that I have on Tuesday.

Please recommend some music for me! My iPod is in dire need of a revamping, and I'm at a lack of inspiration or sources for new music. Anything is appreciated, I promise I'll like it!
Tata for now! :)

Summer is over and College is calling..

Never in my young life have I ever been so excited about summer coming to an end! 2 more weeks from today, and I will be done with my summer classes, and on the way to Daytona beach with my wonderful boyfriend and 2 of my best friends. I'm just ready to be with Billy again--This distance is killing me.
On another note, I have a new little girl. Her name is Casey. She's a gorgeous lab mix who has completely stolen my heart. She's so smart, well tempered, well behaved, the whole shabang. My mom found her and the rest of her sisters in the woods behind our house. I immediately bonded with her. Luckily, Billy was in the market for a new puppy to go along with his new house. So he
effortlessly found himself a new babygirl.
This is her yesterday at her first vet appointment. The vets were all impressed at how healthy, well behaved, and good looking she was considering her background. She makes me a proud mama. I can't wait for her to be here either.

My summer has pretty much flown by because I had a month that was actually dedicated to summer, then June and July have been consumed by summer classes. So here are a limited couple of pictures from what few summer pictures I have to share! Enjoy!

The Answer to my Question

This is a quote from the 5th season of Dawson's creek. I'm watching this episode right now and had some sort of an epiphany to my question from last night:

Joey:So what is the best ending in all of literature? Don't say Ulysses. Everyone says Ulysses.
Professor David Wilder:That's easy. Sentimental education by Flaubert.
Joey:And what happens?
Professor David Wilder:Nothing, really. Just two old friends sitting around remembering the best thing that never happened to them.
Joey:How do you remember something that never happened?
Professor David Wilder:Fondly. You see, Flaubert believed that anticipation was the purest form of pleasure... and the most reliable. And that while the things that actually happen to you would invariable disappoint, the things that never happened to you would never dim. Never fade. They would always be engraved in your heart with a sort of sweet sadness.

Thanks Professor

Oh, Hi! Remember me? Probably not, so let me remind you.
My name is Megan, and I'm the guide to this blog/incredible journey, I've been really busy lately, and I know it's time for me to apologize for being a horrible narrator lately.

My life is simultaneous in the best place it's ever been and also in the most unsure place it's ever been before. Billy has without a doubt boosted me past cloud 9 and into some incredible breathtaking wonderland.

I spent the weekend with a guy many, many people idolize, fantasize about, and would consider famous. I just consider him another guy, a friend, and confidant. Girls would kill to trade places with me, I would put up a fight for that boy too. We were together for the entire day, and eventually he started revealing things to me that I never dreamed were really real. I won't ever repeat the things he confessed to me and shared, because I treasure his faith and trust in me and refuse to jeopardize it. However, I will say his openness really has increased my worry for him as well as, in my opinion, take my feelings for him past our working relationship, and into one that is more personal, and making the situation a lot more harder to not get attached too.. I'm really thankful Billy is comfortable enough to let me spend time with him, listen to him, and help him through his tougher times. After experiencing this weekend with my friend, I wouldn't trade those moments for anything.
The things this friend shared with me, opened my eyes to a world I didn't think was real, to a life that most don't believe exist after the lights of the bar go off at night and he hops on his bus. People forget he's a real man, with a real life, with real emotions, and real issues just as we all are. My heart is breaking for him, my mind is thinking for him. I still cannot completely grasp some of the things that I learned this weekend. It probably won't ever make sense, because I won't have anyone else's thoughts to help me process it all.. none the less, point being: I'm so confused, and my mind keeps going back still trying to process it all. I am sincerely worried for the well being of my friend, but I have full faith that he's trying his hardest for himself.
He also taught me not to judge a book by it's cover. This is probably the most vital lesson he taught me, and the one that I'm still finding myself catching myself and remember not to judge people until I know them or I have a better grasp of what is going on with their life.

On another note, things in my life are going smoothly. Summer classes have started, and I actually rather enjoy it. I'm a nerd though, so that shouldn't matter. My boyfriend is still the light of my life, and we're going on 5 of the most wonderful months of my life. I've never felt so lucky and blessed before. I owe God a few extra church visits for him. I know this is going to be ending rather abruptly, but I have to get off to that summer class I just mentioned.

Fall Into Me - Brantley Gilbert

Last night Brantley Gilbert gave me a copy of his new cd Halway to Heaven early. I've heard all the tracks before but this one, and I gotta say I'm so weak hearted now because of it. For those of you who don't know B, he's got the biggest, most tender heart of anyone. Therefore you know how true this song is as well as every other one. That's part of what makes B's music so great--it's real. It's about real people, real times, real emotions.. That's what makes each song so relateable, whether you're singing the song to someone or wanting someone to sing these lyrics from "Fall into me" to you..

A whisper away from changing everything
but is it safe to say
such dangerous things
when your hands are tremblin'
girl i'm weak in the knees
it's times like these when silence means everything
more than anything

Fall when you're ready baby
let our kiss count the moments
and our hearts set the pace
I'll be your love song and I'll love you right off your feet
until you fall into me

love ain't a race
there's no finish line
and I love a chase
But don't leave me behind
cause girl we're both gambling but I'm playing for keeps
It's times like these when patience means everything
more than anything

Fall when you're ready baby
let our kiss count the moments
and our hearts set the pace
I'll be your love song and I'll love you right off your feet
until you fall into me

and I'll fall for you everyday
I'll cherish the moments that time can't erase
we'll be the love song
I promise you we're gonna sing
Girl when you fall into me
Girl when you fall into me
C'mon baby fall into me
I'm waiting
fall into me
fall into me
fall into me
A whisper away from changing everything..

So with the introduction of Google Buzz, I was inspired to post an update just so that I have a little substance to go onto my "buzzes" I guess that's what they are called on there..?

School is in session and after I dropped my BSTAT class, it is going very smoothly. Honestly, I had a huge weight lifted off my shoulders when the woman in the registrar's office said "ok, done." after I turned in the paperwork withdraw from the class.

I've finally met a guy who treats me like the princess I am not. His name is Billy. He's too, too sweet to me, and has left this permanent smile on my face. He has pretty much got me melted into the palm of his hand, and I'm perfectly ok with being goo. :)

I really have nothing going on besides spending as much time as I can with Billy. I really don't seem to want to do anything but spend time with him these days. He's the highlight of my events--what can I say?

Well, just to avoid a useless post, I'm going to stop before I start blabbering about pointless information that no one cares about, I'm going to focus more of my attention on the Dawson's creek episode that's playing. yes, I have also developed a love of Dawson's Creek after visiting Wilmington this fall, and I am determined to pass Ashlyn in our season watching race. She got a head start, but I'm still going to win. :)
