The Sound Track of My Life!

Pursuit of Happiness by Kid Cudi ft. MGMT.  I would like to include this song in my life because it entails my first college semester in Madison.  I felt as if I was looking for happiness and could not find it.  I felt that I came to Madison to complete a mission/goal in life.  I would bury myself into my studies, ask myself repeatedly why am I studying the subjects I chose, trying to find the meaning of life.  I tried to find a purpose in everything and if I deemed it useless I would try to no longer do the habit.  It was not until I met my friends Rick and Justin where I felt as if I found what I was looking for, happiness.  Kid Cudi asks us to tell him about dreams, and then tells us we know nothing.  This may be true.  Our reality is what we make of it, so if we make our dreams reality are they still dreams?  Either way, one will always be on The Pursuit of Happiness.


Around the World by Daft Punk.  This song is one of my favorites, where I just let my mind go free and let my imagination run wild.  The beats in the song makes one want jump around and dance.  Also, after watching the video one see the perfect synchronization done by the dancers.  Things move freely in the music and the video.  This song gives me inspiration when I'm doing school work, drawing, or just want to listen to something familiar.  I was introduced to Daft Punk when I was a child and will never let go to the endless loops and the imagery they introduce into mind.  Let your mind run free.


Firefly by Saves the Day. Aw, yes one of my cherished bands.  This is probably one of the first bands I listened to when I was yet a wee one.  My older sister introduced me to them and to be honest I did not like them at first. Maybe, it was because their vocals are a little bit more unsteady than most bands, but as I listened to them continually I started recognized their lyrics and they brought a lot of imagery.  Some of their lyrics are nonsensical, but then again I was a wee one.  Also, this in this song, its about a guy and a girl getting drunk, having sex, and then the guy likes the girl, but does not tell her.  But the lines when I was a child meant something totally different. The lines that had a lot a meaning to me were:
"To me you are the light from a light bulb that breaks sometimes
and the tender warmth inside is released into my life"
These lines remind me that even through a failure there can still be something good that comes out it.



  1. You have your own blog? Does anyone read it?

  2. Dear Erin,
    This blog was made for another class, English 101. After the class ended I have not put up a blog since then. I tend to think most thoughts should be left oneself and be a little secret. :P Haha, or maybe I'm just to lazy to make more posts because I am no longer required to do so.
    Bis Spater,

  3. I see. I kind of figured that it was for a class after I actually read a couple. Whatever, I just thought it was funny. I would never keep a blog unless I had to either.
