it doesn't feel as far when i know you're doing well

Sometimes I look back on the past few years & am amazed at where I am at, & other times I am frustrated that I haven't progressed it certain areas. For instance, school. I don't even want to think about how many times I have dropped out, didn't go, or did go but dropped classes. It bothers me, but at the same time I know that because of not going to school, I've been able to accomplish so many things that I didn't think that I would be able to do. Traveling for LiNK (www.linkglobal.org) was probably the biggest thing I did in the last few years. It was huge, & outside of all that I knew was comfortable. However, it radically changed who I am, & who I will continue to be. Moving out on my own was definitely life changing as well. I say all of this because I know for myself, I sometimes get down when I think about all of the things I haven't done, & forget about all of the things I have done.

that was just a ramble, but I felt like saying it.


I don't have much of an update today, sorry if you were looking for some profound blog, not today friends. I will say though, I have been on a Copeland high for a while now, & I have continued to fuel it by getting two albums that I didn't have before.
Dressed up & in line and Eat, Sleep, Repeat. I know, I know, you're saying, "Eat, Sleep, Repeat" is old, and I am just now getting it? Well, when I first heard it, *especially Control Freak* I was not impressed & rather bothered by the album. However, I was challenged to give it another chance, & I did. I can't believe I was missing out this entire time. It's like you can't say you fully know & love Copeland without listening to this album. I stand corrected.
Then, with Dressed up & in line, I was just browsing iTunes to see if there were any albums/EP's I didn't have & sure enough this is what I found! I can't believe I also was missing out on this album! There are a few acoustic songs that they reproduced on this album from other albums, but there are a few new (technically old since it was released in 2007) songs on there as well. Anywho, friends, fellow Copeland lovers, please get these albums if you don't already have them.
My favorite song ever just so happens to be by Copeland is "when Paula sparks" & they have an alternate version on this album. I cried. I am not a baby, but this song holds so many meanings to me. I can't believe this is the end for Copeland. Ah, I don't want to think about it. I can't wait to see them in March. Two times. San Francisco & The Glasshouse. It will be glorious.

...I can't believe I just wrote a blog about Copeland. Oh well. Deal with it. <3

& when you've found something to die for...
it can make you face all your fears
they'll be knocking on your heart's door.
