Hello Livejournal! Wow...it has been a REALLY long time since I've updated...that's my bad :P I've kept meaning to do it but something has always distracted me!...like studying D:

This semester, I got into a volunteer psychology lab. It's pretty easy so far, but like most things in life, it isn't difficult, but it's tedious. There are a lot of little things to remember and forgetting it can make things messy. But overall, I'm glad to be working in a setting where I can apply about what I already know, instead of just a random job (Oh Sobeys). Basically, it's a congition and psychopathology lab, and we're running a study on anger and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). There hasn't been a lot of studies done on this, so doing this study and finding significant results can greatly impact how psychologists treat those with anger management problems and GAD. It's fun doing something that no one's really investigated before, it makes me feel important when I'm helping out =) But, doing all this requires me to dedicate 10 hours a week of volunteer work - it's quite a bit, so it's also tough to keep up on school work...but, I can do it, I think.

So, aside from the nerdiness in my life, I've recently discovered a magical place of happiness and joy - Hockey Sushi (hahahahahaha). Seriously! All of the food there is delicious! I've been 3 times in the past 3 weeks, and I'm going again soon times...I don't think I'd ever get sick of it *_* Nomnomnom. I want miso souppppp! I'd definitely recommend it, so check it out if you haven't already =D

In other news, my personal seems to keep coming back to haunt me, in more than one way D= Men keep making the same mistakes over and over again...guys are stupid. Though that's obvious. Romance is just a bizarre idea for me right now. I'd like to love...actually, I LOVE to love, but there tends to be no one I can really pour out my heart to or for (my phrasing is weird). Does that sound like complaining? I'm not really sure...but I can't find myself investing in anyone romantically. It is quite tiresome to love, I think. Putting that aside, I've also been wanting to reconnect myself with my faith. I miss reading the Bible, I feel like I could learn so much more from it. Ever since we moved though, I haven't been able to locate my Bible D= I had one in my room before...but no matter, I shall find it!

I think...that is all I have to report for now. I'm very certain there is more, but I have yet to unleash my LJ comeback at full power yet :P Have fun, Livejournalismos!

Quote of the Day: "People who are sensible about love are incapable of it."

I couldn't really think of a good lyrical song for my "funeral" (although I suppose others would decide this for me), so I chose another Yann Tiersen piece. I love La Dispute, it's really nice, and somewhat sad. But it's comforting, like you know that even if you feel sad at the moment, you'll be okay. I think I would like my funeral to give off that kind of feeling =)

Okay, okay, I know the first song is horrible clichéd, but, I do adore it <3 Also I couldn't really think of a good wedding song until I find someone I marry and what we both can relate to ^_^; BUT I MUST HAVE BABY LOVE CHILD :D XD I loooooove this song. Lovelovelove. It's simple and lovely, which is why I love it ^_^ Although these are just songs I'd like to hear at my wedding, not really songs I will be playing fo sho :P Again, when I find the guy I want to marry then I'll probably change my mind ^_^

I was doing so well with this meme, then I suddenly just stopped XD Oh well ^_^; Anyway, there is a plethora of songs that I listen to when I'm sad, so I'll just post two versions of one song that I frequent quite often when I'm down. I like both versions, and sometimes I play favourites between them, but ultimately both help me understand my emotions differently, simply because of the tune. It's the same lyrics, but I get different feelings from each. Enjoy them both =D

Virtually, I'll listen to any song when I'm happy, but this one is a favourite of mine ^_^ The Beatles are excellent, how can you not love them? Here Comes The Sun is really light and catchy, and it's perfect for just hoppin' around being happy and enjoying the world =) I hope you all enjoy this song as much as I do <3

Get Over It - OK Go


For starters, I REALLY wish I could have embedded the OK Go video, because it is actually very hilarious (and Damian Kulash is incredibly attractive). But anyway, yeah, these songs are really great to listen to when angry. German always seems so powerfully angry to me, which is why I like to listen to Du Hast a lot. It just relieves me of any frustration and it's really awesome to sing along to :P Get Over It is more of a song that helps me get over my anger...obviously :P The video is really funny, as aforementioned, and since it's a strong sound it's good for relieving frustrations as well. Go listen to both of them, and enjoy! :D

I loooooove this song. Actually, I love all of the Slane Castle stuff by these guys. They're really great, I could listen to them all day. I had listened to Can't Stop a while ago, but it wasn't until recently that it really grew on me. It's just so...catchy! The lyrics are really interesting. Kudos to Frusciante for making such a wonderful guitar line, too! If you haven't really listened to Slane Castle stuff by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, DO IT NOW! :| I urge you, they're wonderful! Listen to eeettttt!

I actually had a lot of difficulty with this requirement. There were a lot of songs that I thought "described" me, but they were more like songs I could relate to. I ended up choosing two because really, no one song an describe all of me :P Nor can just two. I picked the ABBA song because it's what I'm like when I'm in love, at least a little bit. It seems sort of petty going over the lyrics, but I really understand what they meant when writing this song. I am a pretty jealous person, I think. And what woman doesn't want all of their lover's heart? :P As for Sounds of Silence, this is more of an interpretive understanding of who I am. The lyrics do seem quite personal at first, but giving it a listen a couple of times will make you understand more of it. For me, I see it as a song that describes the side of me that I keep to myself; the side no one really knows but me. It sort of reflects how I am when I think by myself and how I view the situations around me. Most of all, it describes me in the sense that I really never know what I'm doing with myself, it disappears withing the sounds of silence. Either way, I hope you all enjoy these songs!
