Music March Day 18

I’ve been working for seven days straight with three more days to go and while I’m grateful for the income(heaven knows I need it), I’ve also been feeling a little resentful of the fact that I quite literally cannot afford to stay(safe) at home. When they said classes for this week were canceled and we could stay at home all I could think was, ‘I hope my boss allows me to work every day until they allow us to go back into the college’.

I wish I didn’t have to work this much, but I remember how difficult being jobless was and I’m grateful….and sad. So I was trying to find a bright spot in my day and I found it when I purchased the melon Melona. I ate it while listening to ‘You’re gonna be ok’ by Brian & Jenn Johnson. It didn’t fix my problem, but it put a little light in my day and so I’ll be a little grateful and a little sad…while wondering if 20 minutes is enough time to eat another Melona bar without feeling guilty(it’s so good y’all!).

I hope the chaebol will ask me to take her place so I can amass some wealth to use when I enter Errand Boy hell.

I did a double take when I saw this at work today. It can’t have always been there because I’m always on the lookout for these things and it’s my first time seeing it. Thanx to the write-up by @sicarius , I have to try this. I’ll probably start with the k drama one(green) then the mango because mango-flavoured things are the best and since I hate coconut I’ll ty that one last.

Done! As a person who sometimes sees things as black and white and in turn judges people a little too harshly, I appreciate that the writer fleshed out his characters so well that I never saw them as one dimensional or just bad people. It had been long enough since I watched Prison Playbook that I’d forgotten some things so it was nice to feel like I was watching it for the first time again.

There would have been too many screencaps if I’d tried to post my favorite scenes so I’ll just drop a few that capture how I feel about the drama.

    I’m watching this on Netflix and it gets me super crabby that for some evil anti-piracy magic all my Netflix screencaps turn out black (I get black videos with sound and subtitles)… So many good scenes!

Well, now I have to make this. It sounds weird but I thought Tablo’s recipe for ramyun was weird too until I tried it and now that’s the only way I make it. #PrisonPlaybookRewatch

      He just soaked them in the Sprite. No boiling.

      How does it taste?

      I haven’t made it yet. If it doesn’t kill me, I’ll let you know after I eat it.

Music March 5

Now and then, the world throws a wrench into my existence, but there always seems to be someone waiting in the wings with a kind word or a smile or a virtual hug. I was having a meltdown recently and a fellow Beanie told me, “You don’t have to be ok around us.” That statement, in its simplicity, touched me deeply. It’s nice to have a safe space where you can vent and have a kind word thrown your way. So to ride-or-die friends that keep us sane and acquaintances who are kind just because, thank you.

I’m a huge fan of Dolly Parton. Her music soothes me, it makes me laugh, it makes me cry. I could listen to her all day and again tomorrow.

I discovered Dolly when I was in high school and just fell for her. When I’m feeling down I listen to her and it makes me feel better. “Heartbreaker” makes me cry(no boy has ever broken my heart but I cry good, fat tears). “Jolene” makes me whip out my imaginary microphone and tell that Jolene what’s what complete with dance moves and glares. “From here to the moon and back” gives me a song to dedicate to the other half I haven’t met yet. Her rendition of “I will always love you” is for the lover I never had but had to leave. “Just because I’m a woman” helps me be a little more kind to myself even when I’ve messed up big. I’m not perfect but I never claimed to be, it tells me. Eagle when she flies, is the one that pulls me out of a pit of despair. It acknowledges that I can be broken but gives me hope that I too can soar as high as the eagle does.

I can dance the pain away with Dolly. I can weep my heart out. I can find strength in her words when I have none of my own. I can just be. That, to me, is the power of her music.

March Music 3

Hi, Beanies. Do you guys have a song you hate, or whose lyrics you find problematic but can’t help singing along to for whatever reason? Either because it’s catchy or your workplace played it so much it’s stuck in your head?

Mine is I’d rather go blind by Etta James. I know the lyrics to the entire song but I don’t agree with them. I would not want to go blind just so I don’t see someone walking away. It doesn’t make sense to me, yet every time it comes on I can’t help but sing along to it. A South African singer by the name of Vusi Nova put some pizzaz on it and made it dancey which made it catchy and there I was dancing to it like an idiot. Beyonce beyoncéd it and I crooned along with her.

What is wrong with me?? So dear beanies, please make me feel normal(or let’s just be crazy together) and share similar songs/stories.

I have a somewhat complicated relationship with the show Friends. I hate it and love it at the same time. My roommate has been watching it these days and it reminded me of a song that was played during Episode one very briefly. It drove me mad because, for a long while, Google kept spitting out weird things when I tried searching for it. Then a few years ago I found it. I like playing it when I’m feeling blue and angsty.

Cracks and fissures start to show. Put more make-up on, breathe, smile. Be perfect: they might not love you if you’re not. Stifle a sob, hug yourself hard, breathe. You’ve got this. No, I don’t. Hang in there. Give up. Fight. Give in. Hold it together. Fall apart. Breathe.
