Writer's Block: Going the distance

Would you uproot your life and move to another city for someone that you love?


I've often told Chris that I'd follow him anywhere, and it's true. As long as we could afford it, I'd move with him to London, Manchester; even to another country! I'd just request we find a house that's near enough to the countryside for me to get my necessary countryside-fix! =)

(no subject)

Day 1- Your very first video game:
I can't remember whether it was Dinosaur for the PS1 or Super Mario Bros Deleux for the GBC. Either way, I enjoyed both.

Day 2 - Favorite video game you've played so far:
Difficult... Zelda Wind Waker wins for gameplay, but Final Fantasy VIII has the story. If we're just talking "games", I'll vote WW.

Day 3 - Your video game crush
Squall from Final Fantasy VIII. ;)



Day 4 - Video game you’re ashamed you enjoyed
Uhm... I don't think I'm ashamed of any... Sometimes I feel ashamed about Spyro, since I still love it, but then I think there's no reason to be.

Day 5 - Video game character you feel you are most like (or wish you were)
Rinoa and Yuna share parts of my personality. If I wanted to be someone else, I would be. ;) Although, I do wish I were as pretty as those two.

Day 6 - Most annoying video game character
Princess Peach. She's too dependent!

Day 7 - Favorite video game couple
Tidus and Yuna; Rinoa and Squall.

Day 8 - Most epic battle or scene ever
The Final Fantasy scenes are pretty epic. I think FFX wins all round - The Dance, The Spring, and The Ending are beautiful.
Battle wise, can I choose the battle in Zelda: Wind Waker against The Helmaroc King?

Day 9 - Funniest video game scene
None spring to mind - I've forgotten them!

Day 10 - Favorite MMORPG
I don't play them.

Day 11 - Favorite Shooter
Same as above...

Day 12 - Favorite fighting game
Tekken: Dark Resurrection.

Day 13 - Most nostalgic game/brings back the best memories
Spyro: Gateway to Glimmer; Spyro: Year of the Dragon.

Day 14 - Game you're most looking forward to
Fable 3, I suppose. :)

Day 15 - Most overrated game
Any game with a MASSIVE fanbase.

Day 16 - Favorite video game system
PS1 and Gamecube.

Day 17 - Hottest video game character
Auron. The deep voice, the mysterious persona - he's a bit old for me though!

Day 18 - Game you loved that no one seems to have heard of
Beyond Good and Evil.

Day 19 - Best role playing game
Final Fantasy VIII.

Day 20 - Worst sequel
Final Fantasy X-2.

Day 21 - Best video game song
Suteki Da Ne - Final Fantasy X.

Day 22 - Last video game you bought
Kingdom Hearts for the D.S.

Day 23 - Video game you think had the best, or most intriguing, graphics
Wind Waker and Okami were intriguing and artistic.
The BEST...keeps changing.

Day 24 - Favorite main character
I have an odd fondness for Peyj from Beyond Good and Evil - you didn't play as him, but he was a vital character in the plot.

Day 25 - Most evil villain
None have frightened me at all yet...

Day 26 - Least favorite video game couple
Cloud and Tifa. I just don't like either character that much. :S

Day 27 - Favorite opening
Final Fantasy XII.

Day 28 - Game you wish you played but didn't
Kingdom Hearts.

Day 29 - Favorite video game company
I don't have one.

Day 30 - Least favorite video game
Well, my PS1 game with a music game that was terrible and didn't actually do anything. =S

Music

Your favorite song -

A song that makes you happy - Best Days by Matt White
A catchy beat, with lyrics about love and happiness. Whether it makes the overall top 10 is a mystery, but it does make the top 10 when all I want to do is dance about like a happy loon!

A song that makes you sad - Roaring Tides (and) Shining in the Sky from Clannad (Without these, I would not have cried buckets when watching the series.)

A song that reminds you of someone - Human by Jon McLaughlin

A song that reminds of you of somewhere - Feet in the Sky by Duke Special
Reminds me of the gardens in town! 

A song that reminds you of a certain event - You're The Light by Ben Cantelon (First Soul Survivor)

A song that you can dance to - Fireflies by Owl City
When I was somewhat unhappy at Uni, I danced to this in my room, and it made me feel free. I'm not sure whether it would make my top 10 - my top 10 are linked to memories, or filled with an incredible depth of emotional truth - but it does mean a lot to me, and I would hate to be without it.

A song that makes you fall asleep -

A song that no one would expect you to love - Foundations by Kate Nash
Don't ask me why...

A song that describes you - Really not sure about this one...

A song that you listen to when you're angry - None in particular...

A song that you listen to when you’re happy - Your Body Is A Wonderland by John Mayer

A song that you listen to when you’re sad - Asleep in the Back by Elbow

A song that you want to play at your wedding - Suteki Da Ne by Nobuo Uematsu
Let's just hope that if I do get married, the fiancee doesn't mind a song in Japanese. The lyrics aren't wonderful, but the voice, the guitar, and the violin all come together and form one perfect, emotion-filled chorus.

A song that you want to play at your funeral - The End by Jason Reeves
I'd begin with the intro and a traditional set of photos, then at the chorus I'd cut to a video of me talking to people about how they must go on and must enjoy life, and make the best of it, and how they should smile and laugh. Then when it reaches the second verse, show a bunch of videos of me as a kid and of my happiest moments, to show them that my life was wonderful. I'd make many of them silly, so that people could laugh. I'd show them that there's no reason to be sad, 'cause I made the best of my life, and did so much - I achieved everything I wanted to; I showed those I loved that they were important.

A song that makes you laugh - What A Comforting Thing from The Rose and the Slipper



Added:

A song that makes you feel inspired - Look Through My Eyes by Phil Collins
This song is well within my top 10, and could even make number 1 - that is the most difficult to call. It's filled with a message, about understanding others, and seeing life through another perspective.

A song that brings together the perfect mix of emotions - Heritage of the Wolf from Balto (Sadness, loss, and lack of hope - then memory. Hope follows, and inner strength begins to rise. Doubt clouds the mind, but in that glimmer of hope, we find courage. Then truth. Feeling. We will succeed.)


A song from your favorite album (I have more, so I thought I'd list a top 3 and give one song from each of those.)
  • Don't Forget (Demi Lovato) - La La Land
  • Leave This Town (Daughtry) - Supernatural
  • Brother Bear (Various) - Welcome by The Blind Boys of Alabama

Writer's Block: What if calories didn't count?

If a magic genie told you your calories wouldn't count for 24 hours, would it change what and how much you ate that day?
Fat, sugar and such would still count... So, I'd eat much the same. xD

Love

Life After You

Ten miles from town and I just broke down
Spittin' out smoke on the side of the road
I'm out here alone just tryin' to get home
To tell you I was wrong but you already know
Believe me I won't stop at nothin'
To see you so I've started runnin'

All that I'm after is a life full of laughter
As long as I'm laughing with you
I'm thinkin' that all that still matters is love ever after
After the life we've been through
'Cause I know there's no life after you

Last time we talked, the night that I walked
Burns like an iron in the back of my mind
I must've been high to say you and I
Weren't meant to be and just wasting my time
Oh, why did I ever doubt you?
You know I would die here without you

All that I'm after is a life full of laughter
As long as I'm laughing with you
I'm thinkin' that all that still matters is love ever after
After the life we've been through
'Cause I know there's no life after you

You and I, right or wrong, there's no other one
After this time I spent alone
It's hard to believe that a man with sight could be so blind
Thinkin' 'bout the better times, must've been outta my mind
So I'm runnin' back to tell you

All that I'm after is a life full of laughter
Without you God knows what I'd do

All that I'm after is a life full of laughter
As long as I'm laughing with you
I'm thinkin' that all that still matters is love ever after
After the life we've been through
'Cause I know there's no life after you

30 Songs That Mean The Most To Me - And Why...

Thought this'd be a nice thing to do. :) I'm pretty sure I've done something similar before, but this changes with time so! (This isn't to do with favourites... They all mean something, whether because they're tied to a memory of have sparked emotion.)

Oh, and I decided to group some together since some songs are from the same album, mean pretty much the same, yet are equally important/worth personal mention. Hope that makes sense!! ;)

And it'd be nice to read about your 30 songs. :)

Far Away - Nickelback
I have often mused over whether this is my favourite song of all time. The answer to that is debateable, but I suppose that's what you get with gradeable answers.
It has remained a favourite since the first time I heard it; just spoke to me. The fact is that when you meet the right person, and fall truly, deeply in love - when you're with them and the rest of the world disappears - I imagine you feel as though you've always known them. They're all you could ask for; you love everything they are. And, had you met them earlier, you would hav eloved them then. Sort of like...No matter when you met, you would have loved them... So, in a way, you could say that you always have. You just didn't know they existed... Bleh. =P
I love you; I have loved you all along; And I miss you; Been far away for far too long; I keep dreaming you'll be with me
and you'll never go; Stop breathing if I don't see you anymore
...
 
Best Days; Paradise - Matt White
These songs are so damn upbeat. They make me want to dance every time I listen to them. Paradise  makes me think of introducing a loved one to something new and exciting; of experiencing a feeling of paradise together. Best Days gives off a similar vibe; makes me imagine enjoying summer with said loved one, alone, in the middle of nowhere, outside. Smiling and laughing! Just being together. :)
Can't take away those times we stayed up and we talked all night; Chain smokin' cigarettes and three bottles of red wine; Falling asleep together; Holding your body close to mine

Dancing in the Moonlight - Toploader
I remember first hearing this song - I think - when I watched A Walk To Remember. I enjoyed it even then. But it was not until Christoff linked me to it on youtube several months later that I fell in love with it. It's one of the songs I have to dance to one day; one I have always wanted to dance to. It just means a lot to me because, every time I listen to it, I can see myself being the person I want to be. The complete me, who's not afraid of how others will view her if she does something a little extroverted and crazy.
Dancing in the moonlight; Everybodys feeling warm and bright; It's such a fine and natural sight; Everybody's dancing in the moonlight.

Syndicate; Absolute - The Fray
When I first heard The Fray - Fall Away - I thought their music decent, worth looking into, but didn't expect them to have produced anything like this; anything that touched me in the same way as these two tracks. It's hard to explain why they mean a lot to me... It's in their tone, and some of the lyrics. It's in the voice.
(Syndicate) Baby close your eyes, don't open 'til the morning light; Baby don't forget, we haven't lost it all yet
(Absolute) Is this all we get to be Absolute? Quiet but I’m sure there is something here; Tell me everything cause I want to hear

Build Me Up Buttercup
- The Foundations
This song became meaningful to me when a friend of mine told me about how he used to sing it down the phone to his ex; how he used to sing it out of the window in the car, embarrass her, but how she'd eventually join in. It just sounds so fun! Being a bit silly together, and not caring what anyone else thinks. The song itself is as upbeat as the idea makes me feel. I just have to do that someday. :)
Try to find a little time; And I'll make you happy; I'll be home; I'll be waiting beside the phone; Waiting for you.

I Can't Hate You Anymore
- Nick Lachey
For its first few months in my life, this song meant little to me. It was nice to listen to, but that was the extent of it. But then I started to miss Christoff. I began to listen to it more and more. Gradually I realised that the lyrics related a lot to how I felt. Except I'd never "hated" him. I just couldn't not miss him anymore. I couldn't keep him at the back of my mind. "The Christoff Saga" (as Eoin calls it) has been long since over. But this song will always remind me of him. Not in a bad way. It'll remind me of how strongly I once felt.
We built it up, to watch it fall; Like we meant nothing at all; I gave and gave the best of me; But couldn't give you what you need; You walked away; You stole my life; Just to find what you're looking for; But no matter how I try; I can't hate you anymore.

Shining in the Sky; Roaring Tides; To The Same Heights - Clannad OST
These instrumental tracks from Clannad are part of the reason it's managed to touch me in a way nothing before or since has. These are one of the reasons I felt so connected; music is important to me and without it I can't engage in a fantasy world, with fictional characters. These were more than a cherry on top. They were a main ingredient.

You're The Light - Ben Cantelon
Imagine a tent, large enough to hold thousands, reaching to the sky, and full of people. Some of them watch the front stage, some listen with their eyes closed; most are smiling; several stand with their hands reaching to the sky. Okay, I can't describe Soul Survivor. I can't describe that feeling of safety, or the sense that everyone feels complete. But whether or not you believe, when you're there, you feel uplifted by the emotions surrounding you. They're written in faces, and in the music. This is one of the tracks played the first year I went; a favourite.
You're the light that shines in darkness; Shining bright for all the world to see; Yes the world will see; You're radiant in all your glory; Nothing is impossible for you; Impossible for you

Mr Mistoffelees - Cats
This is far from my favourite 30, but it's the one song that reminds me of Theo. Why? Well, I called him Mistoffelees for a time. It just seemed fitting. But then we kinda decided Theo was better. And believe me, it was. Nevertheless, the connection still remains. :) PLUS he WAS a clever cat.
Oh! Well I never! Was there ever; A cat so clever as magical Mr. Mistoffelees!

Motherland - Crystal Kay
This came in the first e-card Eoin sent me, so it's naturally linked to him. That's the extent of its meaning really, since I don't know the meaning of the lyrics...

Your Song; Come What May - Ewan McGreagor and Nikole Kidman
Two passionate songs, the first a well-known Elton John track. They're meaningful in themselves, yes. But the main reason they're meaningful to me is because Lucy and I used to listen and sing to them all the time! I remember sitting in her granny's house, playing Catz/Dogz 4 or 5, singing along. We loved that game!

You're My Star - Stereophonics
This just speaks volumes about what two people in love should be to one another; how they should make one another feel complete and alive; happy.
You’re my Sunday; Make my Monday come alive; Just like Tuesday; you’re a new day, wakes me up; Wednesday’s raining, Thursday’s yearning, Friday nights; Then it all ends; at the weekend, you’re my star

Electricity - Billy Elliot Musical
This is a reminder of how art - how working on your passion - should make you feel. A mix of feelings, unexplainable. The lyrics speak for themselves.
I can't really explain it, I haven't got the words; It's a feeling that you can't control; I suppose it's like forgetting, losing who you are; And at the same time something makes you whole

Suteki Da Ne - Rikki (From Final Fantasy X)
The lyrics are a bit basic in meaning, but the instrumental side, and the voice... They're just passionate.

Hakuna Matata - Lion King
The message here is meaningful to me. Look on the best side of life, it tell me. Be positive. Don't let things get you down. Live with a smile on your face; a glimmer in your eyes; warmth in your heart.

If Today Was Your Last Day - Nickelback
Another important message: Live each day like it's your last; grab those chances, and don't wait. Don't assume you have forever to reach your dreams. Tell everyone you love how you feel. Live the life you want. Be happy. Have no regrets.
Every second counts 'cause there's no second try; So live it like you'll never live it twice.

Only Hope - Switchfoot
The Mandy Moore version is nice, but this one is more full of soul! (Haha, so many songs full of soul!) The voice, and gentle backing track just makes it wonderful to listen to. And I guess it sorta reminds me of times when I've felt there is only one person who can pick me up when I fall, upset. One person who'll stop me from being upset. (Though I know that one person is myself, I think of it more romantically when I listen to it. :P)

Trasnsformation - Phil Collins (From Brother Bear)
A song which reminds me that people see things differently... I'll just post the main lyrics for this. They speak for themselves.
Everything will become clear to you; When you see things through; Another's eyes

True Colours - Cyndi Lauper
When my mum wanted to send this song to her sister and asked me for this version instead of a softer one, I wasn't sure why she preferred it. But now I agree. This is the best version. It's just full of passion. It has soul. The voice gives it meaning; it's not just pleasant to listen to. You truly believe in Cyndi; believe that she is singing to someone, whether it be someone she knows or the general public. And the message is meaningful too. Always be yourself. That is something I have always believed in.
I see your true colours shining through; I see your true colours. That's why I love you; So don't be afraid to let them shine; Your true colours; True colours; Are beautiful; Like a rainbow.

When You Say Nothing At All - Ronan Keating
To me, this song speaks of a great truth. Love isn't always about the words. It's about little things like a smile; telling someone exactly how you feel with one kiss; sitting in silence, and feeling philosophy. It's about a connection. Magic.
The smile on your face lets me know that you need me; There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me; The touch of your hand says you'll catch me whenever I fall; You say it best; When you say
Nothing at all
.

Wonder Wall - Oasis
I was first introduced to this song by my friend Stephan; back then things were very different! This song reminds me of that time, and of the friendship we shared then - I doubt he'd ever like to admit we were close; it's possible that we weren't. But I stoll considered him one of my best friends!
Backbeat, the word was on the street; That the fire in your heart is out; I'm sure you've heard it all before; But you never really had a doubt.

1000 Words - Sweetbox (From Final Fantasy X-2)
This song held meaning for me from the first time I heard it. About loss; regret; loving someone who's left you behind.
'Save your tears 'Cause I'll come back'; I could hear that you whispered as you walked through that door; but still I swore; to hide that pain; when I turn back the pages; Shouting might've been the answer; what if I cried my eyes out and begged you not to depart; but now I'm not afraid to say what's in my heart....
 

Okay, that was harder than I thought, since I felt my definition of "meaning" wasn't met on EVERY track. But those are the closest to. :)

Ooh, btw, I had a really nice thought - making a CD of these 30 favourite songs and sharing them with friends! It's like sharing part of yourself, and also introduces people top new music; they'll have something personal to remember you by. And with any luck they'll send one back so you'll have something from them that can never be replaced. =)

Edit (11th October 2009)

Taken some songs out, 'cause now there are a few which hold more meaning! :)

Say - John Mayer
This song takes me back to those days spent lying beside Will in the gardens. They were simply wonderful! We had the odd random moment, but overall we did very little, and being able to do that was great! I remember looking at Will and seeing the song take him away; he was completely lost in it! I loved that. :) I also recall thinking about how I actually had something to say to him. ;P

Feet In The Sky - Duke Special
Another introduced to me by Will. :) It reminds me of how I can be myself around him 'cause, well, we literally put our head to the ground and feet in the sky at one point. Also reminds me of how I put my head in a pile of leaves... And how we pretended passers by were after us and hid behind our bags, watching them suspiciously. :P


That's 29... I'll add another later...

"Feeling" Philosophy

"Discussing philosophy is a bit of a double-edged sword. I'd like to feel philosophy. Like the unspoken words between friends or lovers."

Wonderful words from an online friend. :) He doesn't believe in friends online.

I say this:
Online, you can see deeper into a person's mind; into their thoughts, and the patterns of them.
People type rather like they think in a lot of cases. But, yes, you don't feel philosophy; experience silence. The mind is just one aspect of a person. It's like...you get to know one side of them very well. But in real life, with real friends, you rarely get to see as deeply into someone's psyche. And when you do, you've worked hard; you have to share a certain, deep - an unbreakable bond. So, yes, offline friendship is more special. But, even so, I think that you can reach a certain point with online people when you can call them a friend. When you care about them and want to see the other sides to them and know them in the flesh. When you've seen parts of their mind that you admire and that you love.

Well, I'm feeling a little more confident about revision now. Even though I have done very little Langauge, I should manage it by Wednesday. Volpone I fully understand, and when prompted I can remember a lot more than I think I know! The same is probably true of Woolf, Austen, Chaucer, and 12th Night. I am useless when it comes to Swift and Pope, but I'll rectify that before the end of the weekend, with any luck. =P 

Even though I've only done 1 of 4 things so far today, I feel fairly able to complete it all. Still quite tired though... But meh.

Haha, isn't revision just soooo interesting to read about? Wouldn't you like to know more about the secret half of my mind? ;) (An extremely small half.) 

Hrm, okay. Interesting stuff coming up. Let's just give my mind some time to think. Haha.

Okay. So I'll start with what I'm listening to: Syndicate. I'm not sure why I like it but, like a lot of the songs I listen to at the moment, it's got this sort of soulfulness to it. And a saddened yet slightly hopeful tone. I wish I could write music like this. I'd love to! I tried over Easter, in the last couple of days, but that wasn't enough time to do anything awesome. Maybe over the summer I'll be able to write one with lyrics!! That would be amazing! =D I'd love to be in a band too. I can play piano, sax, ocarina, and plan to re-learn the volin, so technically I could make my own, but I like the idea of working on music with people; sharing a passion.  A lot of my hobbies so far have made me too solitary; I get help in the form of feedback, but that's as far as communication goes. Music videos I've done on my own; sigs, wallpapers etc in Photoshop I've mainly done on my own; I write on my own; but music could be different! And there'd be a lot of satisfaction too! =) Music videos don't fill me with a lot anymore. I've mastered them really. As much as I want to; I can do everything I desire, apart from masks, which I'm too lazy to really bother with (those require getting new software, which would mean I'd have to travel along the steep learning curve for the first time; Premiere is much easier to use than Vegas!) Ooh, I'd love to teach people how to use it though! That would be fun. :) Seeing others learn what I've learnt; helping them discover a new passion! Same with Photoshop. If anyone wants lessons, just ask.=D (as long as you know me and aren't a stranger who happened to come across my livejournal. :P).

Okay, listening to upbeat music really cheers me up! Best Days by Matt White (playing now) is just a.w.e.s.o.m.e! I'd love to dance to it (just like I'd love to dance to Dancing in the Moonlight) but I can't dance. There's something I'd love someone else to teach me. Ah well. :P

So! Here's a question. Everyone: what would you love to be taught? What would you enjoy being involved in?


In other news, looking back on old entries, I have changed quite a bit recently. I don't say "I don't mind" nearly as often anymore! And I compliment people a little more. I get out and meet people more. I'm a little less shy, but still not as confident as I know I can be, or as confident as I'd like to be. I'm seeing myself more positively. Good changes thus far. =)
