My Music

tis the be busy.

the last week has seriously trumped most weeks I've had in college. At least in college you can sit in your house in sweats studying or nap in a chair in the library when you need a break or have the most abnormal schedule and it doesn't matter.

i don't know how i managed to get through it, but I'm not surprised that I've developed 13 knots in my right shoulder, a sore throat, a disheveled room and extremely tired eyes. but it's's all done. and somehow, I was able to do it. which despite all the stress, is a good feeling. I haven't blogged even remotely all of the details of my life over the past few months. Maybe I will get to in all my "free" time over the christmas break. for now, I hope you are all happy and well and have lots of love around you this christmas. somehow in the hot mess of my life i managed to write my very first christmas song. way to go me. hopefully i'll get to record it and post it this week.

to my friends and you all! wish you peace, happiness and joy this christmas!!

Merry Christmas, Dear by Catherine Papworth

Merry Christmas, dear
Bells are ringing, for all to hear
Merry Christmas, love
Colored lights fill the skies above

Love abounds, with every sound
So Merry Christmas, dear

Merry Christmas, friend
let's make believe this won't come to an end
like lovers under mistletoe
and angel wings found in heaps of snow

Joyous sounds, upon snowy ground
say Merry Christmas, dear

Merry Christmas, dear
Bells are ringing, but you're not here
Are you walking down my street
or worlds away you're fast asleep

I'll sing a song,
and hope you come along,

Fa la la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la la

holiday melody

I've written 3 songs in the past 2 weeks. That's a lot for me. I'm working on my very first "holiday/christmas" song. I want to put it on this record I'm working on....addendum to that last sentence: the album i've been asked so nicely by my brother--for which i've created 1,000 ideas swirling in my head--to complete...but haven't actually put audio to tape yet. let's face it..i wont be putting audio to tape at all...only to digitally sampled capture of real audio. you know what i mean. It will hopefully be an addition to the 6 songs I did christmas 2007 all in basically one night in my room in the basement in BYU student housing. I woke up one roommate on the 3rd floor...I hope she's forgiven me...I think she liked the CD though.

i'm loving my christmas tunes playlist right now. i heard this song on a recent episode of "Bones". nothing significant about the fact that it's by my mistress of music right now, Ingrid Michaelson. her melodies/lyrics/charisma fascinate me...which is kind of weird...because i'm notorious for being into stuff that stimulates and challenges my musical brain....and yet her music is so simple. so simple it blows my mind cause it's just so good. but you can listen and decide for yourself.

in other news....4 days of school left. glory in the highest.
