my favorite things // 02-08-2014

-the olympics – so i kind of have this really strange obsession with the olympics. there’s just something about the whole world (or a lot of it, at least) setting aside their differences and coming together to compete that just gets me. i know it’s not all quite as idealistic and picture-perfect as that, but the principal behind it is admirable. and the winter olympics are my absolute favorite! everyone seems to prefer the summer olympics, but i just have a thing for figure skating and watching people ski and bobsled and jump off of ramps really high into the air and all of that jazz.

-clair de lune – i had a friend ask me the other day if i could play this, and i actually haven’t ever learned this piece, so i dug through my music to check it out. i think i’ve shied away from it just because of it’s popularity, and i prefer to be less mainstream with my music. but holy cow! this song is beautiful! it’s been running through my head since monday afternoon, when i sat down played through it for the first time. if you’ve never heard it before, watch this video!

-telling secrets – if you’ve been following me for longer than a couple weeks, then you might remember this post, where i talked about my fear of telling people in my real life about my blogging. well guess what? i actually did it! and now i honestly don’t know what i was so afraid of, because the response has been so overwhelmingly amazing and supportive. i’m so grateful for wonderful friends who don’t find it weird that i write all of this randomness. thank you, thank you, thank you!
