July was not a great month for reading, in fact I barely read anything. It was a busy month between quitting job, applying for new jobs, and getting old jobs again. Not to mention I graduated at the end of the month, there’s a wedding coming soon (not mine), hopefully a new and better job, and not to mention the general stress all of these new life changes create.
All of which caused a major reading slump for the majority of the month. It wasn’t until the last week of July that I actually started reading again and finished four books. Sounds like a lot but it isn’t, not when half of them have pictures in them and one of them was an audiobook.
This is something I’ve been wanting to do on this blog for a while. I tend to talk about books, movies, and shows because they are narratives and I feel comfortable enough to review them and give my opinions on them. However, I can’t seem to do the same with music because I don’t know much about it other than knowing that I like listening to some songs more than others.
I am not a musical person, I don’t play instruments, and I cannot sing or keep a tune to save my life, but I do like listening to it. But, I am a reader and I love to listen and read the lyrics to songs. This is where the English major in me comes into play, because I love looking at lyrics and deciphering what they mean. It’s a lot like reading a poem, except you have a melody to accompanying it.
Anyway, this is a new feature I wanted to add to my blog. A couple of times a month, or whenever I can’t stop thinking about a song, I’ll post a lyric with my own interepretation of what that song means. I’ll probably be wrong, but I can’t wait to see what you guys think.
