her morning elegance

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

i love this song because i feel like it describes my life more often than not. i live the day-to-day like a champ but, at times, feel overlooked, lonely, bored, ancy, invisible, ready for change, tired of routine.

and she fights for her life
as she puts on her coat
and she fights for her life on the train
she looks at the rain as it pours
and she fights for her life as she goes in a store
with a thought she has caught by a thread
she pays for the bread and she goes
nobody knows
-her morning elegance by oren lavie

i know i'm not alone. i know it's a common problem to feel bored with where you are and with what you're doing. even if i lived in california on a freaking beach, i'd still battle this problem. why does it feel so overwhelming, though? like the song says, sometimes it really does feel like i'm fighting for my life.

it's been a long time since i've been really, really excited about something. in college, we had spring formal dances. it was kind of like prom but different because we were older and so much cooler. (totes obvs.) i remember getting so excited about this one night because you got to put on a fancy dress, do your hair all snazzy, go out to eat with your date and your friends, and then dance, dance, dance!

perhaps a super lame example, but i've been craving that kind of anticipation. when is something exciting going to happen around here?
