I just keep listening to the new One Direction album it’s kind of like a thing I kind of enjoy quite a lot but it’s sort of a thing I feel guilty about because I guess I think that sort of thing is for 12 year old girls who scream a lot. BUT NO. I keep listening to it. And I have a One Direction photocard in my room that I found and I’m keeping it.

OH MY GOSH THANK GOODNESS YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT IT IS THE WORST SONG EVER. ELMO’S DAD IS MENTALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL SOMEONE SAVE ME.
My little brother used to watch Elmo’s Potty Time when he was three and potty training and now he’s just rediscovered it on YouTube because he was watching Sesame Street and it was a related video and OH MY GOSH SOMEONE PLEASE DESTROY THE VIDEO WHERE ELMO’S DAD SINGS THIS WHOLE ENTIRE SONG TO HIM ABOUT HOW SOON HE’LL BE ABLE TO DO IT ON THE POTTY LIKE A BIG BOY. IT OUGHT NOT EXIST.
Real talk though, my brother and I are both obsessed with Brendan James’ music. We think he’s insanely talented and listen to him all the time. There’s a song of his called Charleston, about Charleston, SC. However, it’s about more than a town - it’s really more about how it feels to be someplace with people you care about, experiencing a feeling that only comes from a great atmosphere, love, and good friends. There are town elements that you can probably find near you if you look hard enough. That’s why I think the song transcends through the smaller group of people who have been to Charleston or live there, and to all the people who understand what it’s like to feel joy in a certain place. When my brother and I were in Shepherdstown, West Virginia on our way back from visiting family in North Carolina, we both turned to each other and said, “Hey, this place reminds us of Brendan James’ song, Charleston!” The two places aren’t the same of course (though according to Google images, they share certain elements). However, there’s a phrase in the song that goes, “Happiness hanging in the air… and it’s only real when shared.” I guess that pretty much sums it up.
I’ve gotten tagged a bunch, so it’s going to take me a while to answer all of the questions! I’ll get to it either today or over the next few days after my CLEP is over.
