Twenty-One Years

Today is my Twenty-First birthday.  I began the day by having "Happy Birthday" sung to me by beautiful friends right at midnight and then I awoke to find a wonderful blanket of perfectly white snow.  The weather was wonderful for a December day and I was able to enjoy a nice walk before settling down in the library to study for my last final on Tuesday.  Finally, I had a splendid dinner with family, friends, and wonderful food before heading to evening Mass.  I cannot wait to see what this year brings for me, and I am hoping and praying that it is as exciting as I am anticipating.

Cheers to another year!

Walking around with that song in my head

Do you ever have those days where you seem to have a theme song of sorts?  Or many theme songs throughout your day?  I don't just mean having a song that fits your mood or focus of the day.  But a song that could be playing as if you were a guest appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres show before you sit down in the chair.

Well anyway, I have had about fifteen of them for different moments throughout my day today.  As I open the door and walk into work, as I turn from the parking lot into the street, as I sit down to my computer to write an e-mail, as I read a text, as I see a friend's name pop up on my phone... different songs as if my life were a movie with a killer soundtrack.

Does this ever happen to you?  What song(s) would play throughout your day?  Some of the moments I didn't actually have a song that I could name to you, but just this beat, or this feeling that the moment I was in was being somehow defined.
