I have loved this song for a while, and it was one of the first songs I learned how to play by Colbie Caillat. Here I am playing it a couple years ago...
And here I am playing it tonight!
I recently wrote a discussion post for my Writing for Publication course which helped me identify myself as a writer.
I answered the following interview questions:
Where and when do you write best? What has been the most successful piece you’ve ever written, and why? What skills have you mastered, and what still eludes you? What is your revision process? Why do you write?
I've been feeling kinda lazy lately! I'm still getting into the groove, and I want to be less lazy and do more writing! For now, all I have is this video of "The Lazy Song"...but stay tuned for less lazy things! :) By the way, there's a silly surprise in the video, so watch the whole thing! (it's short anyway, it's only a verse and chorus).
I'm sad that summer is ending, but at the same time, I am excited for what this new semester will bring. I wanted to sing this song with a friend I made over summer. She's a super talented singer and fellow staff member! I hope you enjoy our video :)
For fall I have decided to do a weather theme for my floor! Here are the inside door decorations which are made from di-cut umbrella paint chips, colored string, and white cardstock.
Here are some of the floor decorations in the hallway! I used the outsides of the di-cut paint chips to make bigger decorations on brown paper. I also made some cloud paintings and a palm tree with wind blowing.
Due to being extremely busy, I am posting a video from February of my freshman year. I participated in the Miss UCF pageant, and this was one of the first times I'd performed at UCF. I'd performed original songs before, mostly at my mom's store, but this was sort of different. I was being "judged" on my talent (how does one "judge" talent?) as a part of the competition. I wished I'd been able to sing the whole song, but had to cut it short to meet the time limit. I was pretty nervous.
The audience started "the clap" (which also happened to me at graduation when I played an original song as part of my speech, and my guitar was totally out of tune...) I feel like the clap always happens when people don't really like the music, to encourage the musician/band to keep going to finish the song or something. Another reason (which makes more sense) to start the clap would be if encouraged by the singer/band to clap. In this case, I was not encouraging anyone, nor was I in need of encouragement...but people started clapping. I already have issues with staying on tempo, so I think the clap threw me off more. However, I didn't really care that it was happening. A line in my song right before the chorus "can it wait 'til I'm done" seemed to be misinterpreted by the audience. They thought I was asking them to stop clapping until I was done! A friend of mine told me this after the performance, and I personally thought it was hilarious.
Well enough blabbing, here it is! :) 11/11 posted on 8/8 ;P I love repeating numbers...
It's a new month, school is starting again soon, and I've been thinking a lot about life...and love. I wanted to do a song that portrays part of my past, represents my present, and lets me fantasize for the future. I sang this song with my sister for a wedding, when my dad married my stepmom.
"Everything means nothing, if I ain't got you." Thank you for reading and watching. Spread the love!
