Sophomore Year, Here I Come (Hopefully)

In the mornings before school, I have orchestra every other day. Student council is every Tuesday. Model United Nations is every Wednesday. Amnesty International is every Thursday. Student Newspaper is every Friday.

And that’s just in the morning. I also have Speech and Debate practice most days after school, and starting sometime soon I’ll have tournaments every Saturday. I also have violin lessons every Thursday night for an hour, and I’m auditioning this year for the all-state orchestra with sincere hopes of getting in.

All of this will have to be done while maintaining some semblance of a social life, my hygiene and appearance to a halfway decent level, and my (much-loved) 4.0 GPA. In addition to all that, I am dedicated to this blog and also need some time to write, read, or watch TV purely for the sake of unwinding.

I’ve got my work cut out for me this year.

Emma Blackery-The Promise

I adored Emma Blackery in the first place. She’s kind of like a British Jenna Marbles, in my opinion. I recently started listening to her music and…wow, I can’t even describe this song. I think it’s better if I just let it speak for itself. It made me cry.

Today, you don’t want to get out of bed.
There are so many thoughts in your head.
Like you’d be better off dead, better off dead
But let me tell you,
There’s a whole world waiting for you.
It’s hard to believe but it’s true, whoa oh
So just hold on for me, hold on for me.

‘Cause I believe if you go,
My heart would break, just hold on one more day.

Because you are so beautiful, whoa oh,
I promise you this, I promise you this
And you are more than capable, whoa oh
Just believe in yourself when nobody else is listening

And I may not even know your name,
But I promise you I’ve felt the same.
As you do right now, you’ll make it somehow
And even if you feel as though you have no friends
Except the blade that cuts your skin
You’re better than this, you’re worth more than this

And I believe if you go my heart would break
Just hold on one more day.

Because you are so beautiful, whoa oh
I promise you this, I promise you this.
And you are more than capable, whoa oh
Just believe in yourself when nobody else is listening.

And If you go I think my heart would break
And if you go I think my heart would break
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yea…

Because you are so beautiful, whoa oh
I promise you this, I promise you this.
I promise that you are so beautiful, whoa oh
I promise you this, I promise you this
And you are more than capable, whoa oh
Just believe in yourself when nobody else is listening,
You are so beautiful whoa oh
I promise you this, I promise you this
And you are more than capable, whoa oh
Just believe in yourself when nobody else is listening.

Coldplay – Midnight

Okay, either you love Coldplay, or you hate them (or you have no clue who they are). I happen to fall into the first category, and today they released a new song. I can’t make out any of the words and it’s really different from anything I’ve heard from them before, but for some reason this song just gives me the warm-and-fuzzies that I get when I listen to what I consider to be good music. I’ve been feeling really down lately and in an effort to cheer myself up I’ve been looking for new music to listen to, and this song made me feel a billion times better even though I have no idea what he’s saying. So if anyone has any suggestions for music that might make me feel better, please let me know. Video is below, and I hope you enjoy ❤
