Everything’s changing

There was a time in my life when I really did feel like I was stuck. All I wanted to get away. But from what, to where, I had no idea. All I knew was that my life felt like a bag of frozen peas. No change what so ever. Exactly like what this songs talks about. I finally made the jump last year and ever since there have been so many changes in my life. As part of that change, I am off again to another place this year for my two week vacation. My other vacations were only for ‘my’ R & R but this one is a little bit different. It is part of the change and is very important to me on many levels. I have got to move on. Wish me luck😉

Catch you all after two weeks. Will be back with some fun stories and lots of photographs later. I will try and keep in touch in the mean time. Until then, Happy Blogging and Be Safe WP:)

Lyrics from DirectLyrics

Hell down, heaven down
Living in the same town
Tryna find something new
Vocal beats a frame
I’ve been frozen in
Tryna find a better view

This ain’t real, this ain’t cool
This ain’t what I signed up too
This ain’t right, it’s no good
No good, oh

Everything is changing
And I’ve been here for too long
Going through the same things
I’ve been hurting too long, got to move on
Say I
I can’t do this anymore
If everything is changing
And I know, you’ll find it

I don’t understand playing by the same hand
How you find something new
I can’t work it out, what it’s all about
I won’t live my life through you

This ain’t real, this ain’t cool
This ain’t what I signed up too
This ain’t right, it’s no good
No good, oh

Everything is changing
And I’ve been here for too long
Going through the same things
I’ve been hurting too long, got to move on
Say I
I can’t do this anymore
If everything is changing
And I know, you’ll find it

Got to let go
Got to let go

I’ve been here for too long
I’ve been here for too long
I’ve been here for too long
I’ve been here for too long
I’ve been here for too long
I’ve been here for too long
I’ve been here for too long
Everything is changing

Posting it for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday.

Zoo Park

For my youngest niece any place she sees some animals, live or otherwise, is a zoo. The other day I took them to a park and she saw these animal sculptures and she wanted to go and visit them. She called the whole area as zoo. And I had to take them again to the same ‘zoo park’ as she calls it. She wanted to go and pet the lion and sit on the horse. And started to make a fuss when I told her that it is not allowed to walk on the grass. So I had to tell her that these animals might bite her if she went anywhere near them😉 I think she believed it even though she didn’t really want to.

Post for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “zoo.” Use the word zoo, or find a word that contains it. Have fun!

WPC: Admiration

I always admire the handmade arts and crafts and can spend a lot of time just looking at them making Friedrich Nietzsche’s quote “Admiration for a quality or an art can be so strong that it deters us from striving to possess it.” true. But once in a while I give in and buy such items and those are my proud possessions. We friends had been to an arts cafe once and I spent most of my time browsing the craftworks than eating at that place😉 So imagine my surprise when I was gifted this very article of my admiration as my birthday gift yesterday (a little in advance because I won’t be seeing them for a month) Have I told you that my friends are the best:)

Vacation – what’s your definition?

For my nieces and nephew, it means

  • eating as much junk food (courtesy: their adorable aunt … (coughs) that is me, of course)
  • Playing the Wii games almost the whole day
  • Going to a park or a mall in the evening (compulsory…) and the parks and malls should be different each day
  • sleep in late and wake up whenever they want
  • no reading or writing
  • never telling rhymes or stories, except for the ones that appear on the TV
  • buy and play with as many toys as possible and not bother to keep them in their own place
  • fight with each other and increase the blood pressure of their respective parents😉 (with some help from their aunt)

For me,

  • No work
  • Waking up early to enjoy the nature (I tend to sleep in during work days😉 , don’t question the reason behind these)
  • Eating pastries and snacks and putting on a little bit of weight
  • taking as many photographs as possible
  • Walking around places and just enjoying life
  • No phone (I tend to not use my phone during my vacation time except maybe to take photographs)
  • People watching
  • Watching sunrise and sunset whenever and wherever possible

What is yours?

 

The last time

Just felt like sharing this song…because I felt so good hearing it just before going to bed.
Good night WP:)
