So if you are a reader that followed me over here from my old blog I Would Like To Call It Beautiful you would know my current obsession with Grouplove. Here is news for you all... it hasn't stopped. I am really trying you guys, but I just CAN'T stop listening to them! If one of their songs comes on Pandora or shuffle, I can't help but turn up the volume and rock out. It is just a necessary reaction. It doesn't help that one of my best friends is also involved in this current situation. We don't blast their music with the sun roof open, and all the windows down...or randomly break into song and dance on our way to class no matter how awful we are at singing..and dancing. Only crazy people do those things... yeah.
Well I am going to try to get all my Grouplove out right now, so here are some of my most favorite songs by them. Prepare yourself for awesomeness!
"Colours" (of course)
"Itchin' On a Photograph"
Just to name a few.
Also, the only girl in Grouplove, Hannah Hooper, happens to not only have an amazing voice, but she is an incredible artist. This is how things happen when I like things. I want to know more about them. I would like to think that it is just a natural response that everyone has. If you like things, you learn more about them. It might just be because I am an insanely curious person. That little fact works against me sometimes. Some people don't like curious people. Anyways... I wanted to know more about Grouplove so I did some research while on the bus to school earlier this week. This is how I found out that originally Hannah Hooper was not a musician, but an artist. The singing came later when the band met. I also found out that she does the art for most of Grouplove's merchandise and CD covers! Isn't that awesome!? Here are some examples of the lovely Hannah Hooper's art.
Aren't they just lovely. Yeah, I thought so.
Now for some rambling! This next week is fall break, and I can't even begin to explain my excitement! I don't know what it is about this year in college, but I need every break that I can get. It gets hard to stay motivated sometimes when you are still taking just a bunch of generals. I am so ready to be in my major, and taking classes that I am actually interested. Not math. Math sucks.
My friend Bianca and I have a whole fall break "To Do" List. It is quite amazing I must say. It involves bike riding, hiking, making food, and watching good movies. I am so stoked! We are always making all sorts of lists. That's what happens when you pretty much only hang out with one person. You start making lists. Lots and lots of lists. But you love every second of it! What I am most looking forward to is actually not on the list, but that's ok! We are going on a little road trip to Logan to visit some friends. Let me just say one thing. My best friend in the entire world happens to live in Logan, so I guess you could say I am pretty dang excited! The lovely best friend's name is Sarah. I did just get to see her a couple of weeks ago, but I take every chance I can to go and visit because I usually don't get to see her that often. Even if she is just an hour and a half away. If you knew the car I had, you would understand why sometimes that is a hard thing. My car is actually freaking AWESOME, it's just slow as crap and doesn't like the canyon you need to go through to get to Logan very much. That's alright. It's worth it! I just can't do it that often. I don't want to push my luck.
The most disappointing thing EVER happened today. So here is something about me. I also love Of Monsters & Men. So much that my lovely best friend, Sarah, was going to go on a little road trip with me to go see them in Boulder, CO. We really lucked out, because one of her close friends lives there so it would have been a fun, cheap trip. So randomly I decided to look up the tickets again because I had forgotten what day it was. Well, they are no longer playing a show there! What the heck! How could this happen?! I wish I could express my disappointment, but I just can't. If anyone knows anything about this, please let me know! I keep hoping that maybe my eyes were just not working today, and I just missed it... or something like that. Bad luck strikes again.
There is another thing about me. I for some reason have really bad luck. I don't really know when it all started, but it is to the point where I just find things funny now. If something unlucky happens to me I just laugh and add it to the list. It really is quite funny. My friends comment about it quite a bit. I don't really care though. It always makes for a great story, and usually funny memories. I can handle bad luck. It's when I have good luck that I start to get worried.
Well I think that is it for today, but before I go I just wanted to give a little shout out to the lovely ladies that designed my awesome header and lovely welcome image! Tanya and Allison of Den of Thieves. If you are just starting out, or want a blog face lift I would highly suggest these two wonderful ladies. They really make you a part of the whole process which was really nice. Pay them a visit!
Everyone have a lovely weekend!
