Last night, the Grammy’s happened. UGH. Look, for those of you that know me personally, you know I am all about respecting the opinions of others even if they do not coincide with mine. I do NOT condone when people feel the need to FORCE their opinions on others.
That being said, I did not watch the Grammy’s. Why? Because I feel that many of the artists/celebrities are hypocrites. They tout that they want “change” and act humble- but have you read some of their riders!? No? Here you go.
Now- don’t get it twisted. Music is where we can express ourselves and allow others to feel our joy, pain, or sorrow. But not every single celebrity needs to make a state of the union address. The short snippet I saw of Kesha’s performance had me like “Yaaasss”. The passion and the love that came from her was amazing. I also applaud Logic’s very eloquent and powerful speech (you guys I have no idea who he is). I was certainly glad to see the people that lost their lives in Las Vegas were honored.
Whatever happened to that- where’s the footage and explanation of what happened?
I am just tired of everything turning political. But it’s the day in age we live in I guess. My point is- can we just have the music, movies, and arts back, please? Can I just get some jams so that I can escape for a few minutes here and there?
I don’t know about you guys, but music always gets me out of the funk that I sometimes find myself in. Lately, I haven’t been listening to music- maybe that explains some of my funk. The other part is being a mom and not having the time to shower- but that’s a whole different kind of funk altogether. 😉
I LOVE LOVE LOVE music. Today, while getting some chores done around the house (I still have so much s%#! to do) I put on my bluetooth headphones and grooved y’all. Don’t worry, Julia was napping and I had the motion sensor to detect her movement in case she needed me and I couldn’t hear her.
It felt good. It was like a little escape.
On my playlist, I have songs that address some of the feelings I have towards some “mean girls” in my life; songs that take me back to my middle and high school days- I had good ones; songs that reminded me of dating my hubby! To top it off- they are mostly songs you can move to!
You guys, I even ran a mile on the treadmill, I was just so motivated! Hahaha! I will NOT share what I ran and the time on it. (UGH- ok – 1 mile in 12 minutes) Gross. What happened? Haha. Oh, wait… I know you guys… I incubated a human for 9 months and I’ve been chasing her around for 2 years!
Seriously you guys, I thought I was going to throw up while running. Then the song “I’m an Albatraoz” came on. It kicked me into gear. I would not give up- I was hitting that mile marker. Pent-up frustration I guess?
You wanna know a secret. I think it helped my mood. Made me a little happier. If you read my post on the “I don’t wanna”… maybe I proved myself wrong. Maybe working out does release those endorphins, serotonin and all the other happy chemicals people need in their heads.
Here’s my playlist. I will try to make a new one each month to keep up the motivation and to give me (and maybe you) something to run/work out to. OMG. Did I just say I was going to work out? UGH. I don’t wanna, but you know what… I gotta.
Many of the songs on this playlist are throwbacks- but it is keeping my theme of giving me the music back. Enjoy you guys.
