    Since Freshman Year

    No Lies, Just Love

    I feel like this song could have been written by me.  Also, Haligh, Haligh, a lie, Haligh reminds me of my experiences junior year of college.  It's like he's in my brain.

    These Lyrics...

    I sometimes wonder whether he has the same mental illness as me ... cause I don't think he could describe me that well if he hadn't. I usually sit next to the cd-player when I hear a new CD the first time and start to cry at any point cause he descibes my feelings so well.

    I love when someone smiles and you can see the smile in their eyes. You can tell a persons mood by how bright their eyes are. I like when my husbands eyes are bright, it usually means a lot of amusing torture is on the way (and I don't just mean sexually.) I also like to brighten...

    Wathership Down

    Anyone remember the song 'Bright Eyes" by Art Garfunkel? It was about a rabbit who got killed. It made me cry, so I don't now if I like it so much. But it was/is a beautiful song. I THINK it was Art Garfunkel.??

    I Got Lucky, Thanks to History Class!

    Conor Oberst is a creative genius. I feel like every song he writes comes straight from his soul - he's so un-manufactured. I'm not sure if that's a word, but you know. Right now in particular I'm listening to "Tourist Trap" a lot, because I just moved back to my...
