What The Hell This Song is so Beautiful

Okay seriously though, this song is heartwarming and sad and happy and i dont even know.


"The Gambler"

Slow down, we've got time left to be lazy
All the kids have bloomed from babies into flowers in our eyes
We've got fifty good years left to spend out in the garden
I don't care to beg your pardon, we should live until we die

We were barely eighteen when we crossed collective hearts
It was cold, but it got warm when you barely crossed my eye
And then you turned, put out your hand, and you asked me to dance
I knew nothing of romance, but it was love at second sight

I swear when I grow up I won't just buy you a rose
I will buy the flower shop, and you will never be lonely
For even if the sun stops waking up over the fields
I will not leave, I will not leave 'til it's our time
So just take my hand, you know that I will never leave your side

It was the winter of '86, all the fields had frozen over
So we moved to Arizona to save our only son
And now he's turned into a man, though he thinks just like his mother
He believes we're all just lovers, he sees hope in everyone

And even though she moved away, we always get calls from our daughter
She has eyes just like her father's, they are blue when skies are gray
And just like him she never stops, never takes the day for granted
Works for everything that's handed to her, never once complains

You think that I nearly lost you when the doctors tried to take you away
Like the night you took my hand beside the fire thirty years ago to this day,
You swore you'd be here 'til we decide that it's our time
But it's not time, you never quit in all your life
So just take my hand, you know that I will never leave your side
You're the love of my life, you know that I will never leave your side

You come home from work, and you kiss me on the eye
You curse the dog, you say that I should never feed them what is ours
So we move out to the garden, look at everything we've grown
And the kids are coming home so I'll set the table; you can make the fire

Figure Skating

Figure skating is a majestic sport-like ballet, but with knives on your feet. It's also kind of confusing one. Person in 3000BC: "Hey, I bet I can go faster if I walk on ice with sharp bones on my shoes." Somehow, figure skating works. I don't know why the hell it was made, but it managed to get popular. Weirdly, no one knows exactly how it was created, nor do they know how it was created. Anyways, the skate boot has come a log way from 3000 BC's bones, to the European introduction of metal blades, to the modern blade and toepick made up of random crap like titanium, steel, etc. In the 1800's skating was pretty popular, and was one of the only sports that women would actually partake that was also acceptable for men. Then in 1863, this American guy named Jackson Haines comes along and decides to put ballet skills on the ice, and he alos invented the sit-spin, which is a pretty fun spin. For some reason, the people of  Victorian England didn't like Jackson's revoluntionary ideas and preferred the stiffer kind of skating, so Jackson kept on making new moves and dance elements untill he performed at some place in Vienna which inspired an International Skating Union. Thanks Jackson. Now going on to the early 20th century, Ulrich Slachow was a really great skater and he introduced the serated edged toepick to help with jump grip. Clearly, the Salchow jump was named after him as well. Then over even more years, indoor ice rinks were made, figure skating became an Olympic sport (1908), jumps and spins were created, and outfits were created, all of this to become what it is today. Yeah, figure skating really doesn't have much of an interesting hitory, but it's a cool sport nevertheless. 

Why am I ranting about figure skating?

No not because of that. I am a figure skater, not very good one, but it's a pretty large part of my life. So you'll probably see some future posts about fun facts, opinions, things relating to skating, stuff like that. I'll try to make it friendly to those who have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about, maybe even a basic explaination about the different jumps/spins/footwork so that the next time you're watching it on TV and the announcer talks about a bad landing or whatnot, you can say something like: "Pfft yeah I know that the triple flip double lutz combo was landed on the inside edge what an offence that's like seven points right there look how much i know about figure skating why won't anyone love me." Um yeah so please, if want more of this awesome cool creative unique content, make sure to follow my blog. I need you to. I promise my posts won't be too long. Plz.

Odd Dream #1

I have a tendancy to write down the dreams I remember as soon as I wake up so that I don't forget them. And they're usually either really weird stories, or have plot lines that are worthy for movies, so I guess it might be interesting to post them every so often. Oh, and excuse the bad writing, I'm typing directly from whatever I wrote from that hasy point of time from when you just wake up, so it's very bad quality.

Dream #1, Feb. 23 2014: Shark Study

I was on a small boat in the ocean with a bunch of strangers that I seemed to know in the dream. We were scientists doing some kind of shark research in the middle of the ocean. I was baiting sharks with a fishing rod and it was really fun. But then, one of the people on the boat reported that there would be a magnitude 7 earthquake, so we directed our course towards the nearest land. Unfortunately, the earthquake started while we were still out on the ocean, and there were a bunch of giant waves which theoretically should have capsized the boat, but it's a dream so who cares. Anyways, all the scientists around me were screaming, crying, getting thrown around, panicking, and clutching onto the boat for their dear lives, but I was just stading there and laughing about how much fun the boat ride was because of the tall waves. Suddenly, the waves turned into ramps of snow, kind of like the large moguls you see on the ski slopes, and the boat started sliding on those. Eventually, we made it safely back to a legitimate shore. 

I've had more exciting dreams, but I have to study for geography exam now so I just posted one of my shorter ones. If you want to see more of my dreams, leave a comment stating your opinion, and it would also be nice if you could follow my blog. Please. I'm desperate.

It's a commonly known fact that Nutella goes with everything. Literally. You could put a gob of Nutella on a block of balsa wood (I'll make another post about balsa wood later) and it would still taste as if you died in your sleep, went to heaven, stayed there for a bit, took a victory lap down to Earth again, got reincarnated as someone who hates food, tried Nutella and decided it was the only food you loved despite being allergic to nuts (you'll go that far for the sweet sweet goodness) and then you write a review on Yelp about how it tastes like the breakfast buffet from your hotel in Heaven. So if you have a jar of Nutella sitting around, but you have extremely dull levels of creativity, then this post is for you. Here's what I've done with Nutella that works well.

  1. Smother your crepes/pancakes/waffles/french toast with that stuff
  2. Spread it on bread. I know, super original. 
  3. Dip a cookie in it. You can never have too much sugar. Such a thing is impossible. 
  4. Spread it on two cookies, slam a marshmallow between them, and BAM YOU HAVE S'MORES. 
  5. Make fondue. Chop up some fruit (strawberries, bananas, etc) like a healthy person and dip it in the Nutella. 
  6. Dip broccili in it. It works. I tried. It's shockingly good, and healthy!
  7. For your week of exams, just jam a spoon in that jar. You know you want to. 
  8. Put in on a croissant
  9. Put a glob in a glass of milk and stirr until it become chocloate milk
  10. Dip chocolate in it. 
  11. Cover almonds with it
  12. Put it on ice cream
  13. Make a chocolate pizza- Spread nutella on pita bread, top with m&m's

Stress Balls

Are stress balls actually supposed to help people with stress issues? Because I'm in the homerun stretch for exam study and now I know that they don't work at all. I never understood how exatcly it's supposed to help, but it never ever works for me. If anything, it gets me more stressed with the less squishy ones because I can't squeeze it effortlessly. Why do they even make the hard ones? I try to squeese the tougher ones and it takes so much work. Am I supposed to use that much force, or am I just weak? See, now I'm stressed about my physical strength on top of exams. Another thing about stress balls: Why do companies give them out so often? Okay, less often than pens, but come on, I have at least five of them sitting around in my bedroom. Four of them are on my desk. You know what would be nice for companies to give out instead? Pencil sharperners. I always loose them. Erasers would be nice as well. They should make stress balls that are easy and satisfying to squish and they also have kind of a crunching feeling to go along with it, like when you crush a pop can. 

I hate these one specifically with a burning passion:

Into the Woods

I'm someone who really like forests. I love going for small hikes on any nearby trail I'll find off the internet. But I was browsing through RedditNoSleep when I came across a a series of stories by a search and rescue park ranger that made me want to reconsider going into the dense woods. This man talks of the things that lurk there, gruesome experiences he's had to witness, and just odd disappearances. There was one entry about a kid who simply just disappeared without a trace. Multiple entries are about some extremely horrible deaths. Some are about strange happenings. And then there are the stairs. Just stairs that seem to appear out of nowhere, and are seen by every park ranger that the author has met. They look as if they have been just ripped out of the house and put in the forest, just like a video game glitch. Anyways, I highly recommend reading the 7 part series; it's very intruiging, and they are, apparently, true stories.

*Insert Circle of Life Song Here*

As you can clearly tell, this is my first post and I don't really expect much. It's also my first legitimate blog, so it looks awful at the moment, but worry not. I shall learn. Anyways, I'm still unsure about what I'm going to blog about, as the only reason I started this is because I said that if my friend makes a blog, I will do so as well. So far I'm thinking about Summer vacation stuff? Song reccommendations? Movies? Figure skating? Weird dreams? Inspiration to get off your butt? Yeah, I really don't know. Thanks for stopping by, and I honestly don't know how you found this unless I gave you the link, or you travelled into the deep parts of Google, but it would be nice if you follow me. Or not. It's up to you.
