The Power of Words

There is a saying that says words only have the power that you give them. This is a saying that for the most part, I believe. For me there is one word in all of the world, in every language, that has it's own power, no matter what you put into it, it still maintains its power...

Last night at the concert, the band, Sugarland, opened up with a song that I have really enjoyed, below are some of the lyrics:

Is it the face of a child
Is it the thrill of danger

Is it the kindness we see in the eyes of a stranger

Is it more than faith

Is it more than hope

Is is waiting for us at the end of our rope

I say it's love, I say it's love

Is it a veil or a cross

Is it the poet's gift

Is it the face that has launched over thousands of ships

Is it making you laugh

Is it letting you cry

Is it where we believe that we go when we die

Is it how you were made

Is it your mother's ghost

Is it the wish that I'm wishing for you life, for your life, for your life the most

I say it's love

Can you guess the word?

Concert Night

So yeah, I'm pretty excited. Tonight I am going to a concert....for all of you that are wondering, yes it is a country concert! It's a band called Sugarland, who are my favorite country band! I am going with my cousin who lives here in Jacksonville (not the ones I live with), so it should be a fun night!

I have great seats on the floor, which will be a lot of fun! Anyways, if you have a chance, look up Sugarland and listen to some of their music, it's really good!

The End of an Era

Ever since daylight savings ended on Sunday morning, I have been waking up even earlier than usual! But in the days up to todays election it has given me the chance to watch some of the early morning news and this morning I head something that made me optimistic, no matter which way this election goes. On the Today show they were interviewing Tom Brokaw, who said:

"No matter who wins this election, I think this will bring an end to the apathy in this country."

So, think about that today, no matter who is victorious tonight, both have done something remarkable!

The Highlight of Election Season

So I have been watching all the news shows (real and fake) and enjoying the election season (with the exception of those damn campaign ads!) But there has been one thing during this election that has stood out:

Tina Fey! Yes you read that right...the breakout star of this election season has definately been Ms. Tina Fey. I mean, she was a big celebrity prior to this, but now that she has portrayed Sarah Palin, in what might be the best SNL impersonation ever, she has gone into the stratosphere of celebrity-dom!

Congrats to you Tina Feylin - This Election is For You!

I Cast My Ballot

That's right! This past Thursday I went and voted early! I had heard numerous complaints of long lines and people waiting for hours....but not me! I got to the early voting area at around 5:30 PM (after work) and found a parking spot, went inside, stood in line for about five minutes, and then was sent on my merry way to a voting booth, where I had to connect the arrows!

I honestly felt like I was back in Kindergarten. They have two halves of an arrow, and in order to cast your vote, you had to complete the line, using a special marker. My only problem was, do I draw a single line, or do I create a thicker line the size of the rest of the arrow. Oh well!

Anyways, if you have not already gone out and voted, Tuesday, go to your local precinct and vote!
