You say you wanna try and get away, and that’s just so obvious…

This month’s playlist is a little indulgent considering more than a few of these songs were mentioned before on previous playlists! But this is my blog and my playlist and if I want to recycle a few songs who can stop me? This one starts off like Stairway to Heaven, calm cool and mostly collected, a hauntingly beautiful voice building, calculated in the ascend to harder, faster, and stronger vocal and music, only to end up rocking the fuck out! There’s some 90s nostalgia, some early 00s EMO, a bitchin’ classic rock gem, and of freaking course some LDR!

  1. Sex and Candy – Marcy Playground
  2. Hallelujah – Jeff Buckley
  3. Ape Dos Mil – Glassjaw
  4. Cherry Waves – The Deftones
  5. Breakfast in America – Supertramp
  6. Little Razor Blade – The Pink Spiders
  7. Beating Heart Baby- Head Automatica
  8. Put me in a Movie – LDR
  9. Godzilla – Kesha
  10. Head First for Halos – My Chemical Romance
  11. Drunk Girl – Something Corporate
  12. New York City Speed – Kill Hannah
  13. Summer of Sam – LDR
  14. Jude Law and a Semester Abroad- Brand New
  15. Your Boyfriend Sucks – The Ataris

This is probably one of the better mixes I’ve created in a long time, in high school I would name my mixes and since then my favourite was one I called Pop Rocks and Coke, mainly for the Green Day song, and this one, I think we are going with the number one, 90s gem Sex and Candy… All of these songs are super awesome, it’s just a really cool mix. And I am love, love, loving Godzilla these days, it’s just a super cool song, about falling in love with Godzilla, like that’s not the coolest thing that’s happened this year? I’ve been listening to a lot of Glassjaw again, I don’t really know why but it’s like it’s my job. Worship and Tribute is such a great record, it’s a shame they only released one other record. Anyway, give this one a go, it’s super rad! And on that note, it’s time to end!

Cos you were so beautiful before today…

We have finally made it to October!  And that means Autumn is upon us, pumpkin spice everything has come out of the wood work, it’s a little cooler in the morning and evenings than the daytime.  Leaves are changing colour, the air is a bit brisk, it’s getting darker earlier, and I have about four weeks left in my pregnancy, give or take a bit.  Most women I’ve talked to have all said that their first born were a bit late, or like me I was almost two weeks late!

Over the next few weeks it will be crunch time to prepare for our little girl.  We have the nursery to finish, some big purchases to make and I need to prepare my hospital bag and birth plan.  I also have to wash all the adorable little baby clothes, inventory the gear we got from my shower, write and send all of the thank you notes as well.  And this week is my last bi-weekly/first weekly appointment.

Everything is going by so fast.  Aside from aching all over, and not sleeping well, I feel like all of my days are rolling into one another.  And that’s probably because I am still working.  I feel like I have hardly any time to myself and if I am able to accomplish anything it feels like the best day ever!

J and I are getting really ancy, I think for different reasons, I want to feel semi normal again, and I think he just wants to meet our little girl, I do too, I just also would like to be able to get back to feeling like a person, like myself again…  Even though I know that nothing will ever be the same.  And on that note, it’s time to end!

All for now,

But the monsters turned out to be just trees…

Now that it’s October, I’ve been thinking of all the possibilities a new month brings.  This month we will be celebrating my younger sister’s birthday (she’s growing up so fast)!  This month there are two local events that I am very excited about, the first is the first Italian Festival in Kingston down on the Strand Columbus Day weekend.  The second is the biannual Burning of Kingston, which is the weekend of the 16th-18th.  There is a whole weekend full of activities, and I am super excited, I’ll probably just check out the reenactment on Sunday at Forsyth Park.  Not to mention my growing excitement for Halloween!  This years theme at work is the 1980s, which is perfect for what I have planned!

I go back to the Orthodontist on 10/20, no doubt to be told yet again that I will be getting my braces off, only to be disappointed to learn that is not the case once I get to my appointment.  I’m sure I will be getting my bands changed.  I think since it’s so close to Halloween, and I have my costume planned, I’ll go with a shade of blue.

I work three Saturdays in a row, the first was last week and the last next weekend.  I know I shouldn’t complain, many have it much worse, I am just drained.  Having one day off is not enough to get everything done, and I spend a lot of my day off during the week trying to catch up.

I am also looking forward to introducing my new A/W additions into the mix, I have worn a few of my new pieces so far.  And on that note, it’s time to end!

All for now,
