Freestyle – So Slow (cover)

Sorry for the horrible sound — this will be my reminder to get a legitimate microphone just for fun. And sorry for all the street noise (did you hear the plane?).

I’ve made it my goal this year to do more of what I really love without thinking of how bad I may be at it. Singing is one of them. While I’m not the best or have great technique, it feeds my soul and I’d like to share it with you if you’re willing to listen!

The original song is by a Pilipino band named Freestyle – check them out! And zsos is a great duo who does awesome covers – check them out too!


Jessie Ware – Wildest Moments

In the middle of it
We walk the line
Looking back on the set
Our wildest moments
Are you thinking what if
What if we ruined it all?
My wrecking ball

From the outside
Everyone must be wondering why we try
Why do we try?

Baby in our wildest moments
We could be the greatest
Baby in our wildest moments
We could be the worst of all

Keep Your Heart Young

Lately, I’ve been thinking way too much about my future. I guess it’s part of life, to think ahead and make sure you’re heading in the right direction. But I’ve had to stop myself every so often because thinking ahead sometimes makes my heart palpitate, like when I eat Quaker Oats chocolate chip granola bars or when I put too much sugar in my coffee.

I think about how old I’ll be when I can finally say I’m 100% debt-free (3-4 years is my goal!). I think about what career I’ll have for the rest of my life (video game story developer, famous romance novelist, talent scout, consigment shop owner, single-men fashion stylist…). I think about when I can buy my next car with cash and pay off my mortgage  in less than 10 or 15 years. I think about when I can start saving for my kids’ college funds.

But songs like “Keep Your Heart Young” by my girl, Brandi Carlile, remind me to just slow down and not to “grow old before my time has come” and to “keep [my] heart young.” I hope to live moments with the same awe I had when I was a kid, and re-discover emotions and experiences as if it were my first time. Because who knows – “sometimes you don’t die quick, just like you wish you’d done.”

I’m still young, anyway. And I’ll stay forever young, even when I’m old and gray.
