So I haven’t posted in a while, maybe two weeks (I’m not quite sure) because I’ve been working on final projects and presentations for the semester. I’m pretty much finished except for one final project I’m still working on for my radio course (Best course ever!) and I’m thoroughly enjoying this assignment. Can you believe it? I’m actually admitting to liking school work. That’s it, I’m declaring myself a changed woman.
But since second year is pretty much over I’m celebrating early by waking up at 12 in the afternoon and not having breakfast until 2. That’s the life right thuur maan.
What I’m most excited about though (apart from the immense amount of free time i now have on my hands) is the fact that no school = more time to write, read and watch tv shows! So yeah, pretty much all the things I’d much rather spend my time doing. So expect more blogs from me for the next 2 months (at least, I might be busier in July) and more updates.

Music plays a major role in how focused in am when i write and how certain scenes play out. Typically I’m Listening to Enya’s Greatest Hits album when I’m writing. She just calms my soul to the point where i can block everything and everybody else out and focus on the scene I’m writing.
When I need a little more inspiration, depending on the mood of the scene and what the characters are feeling at a certain point in time I always jump back to this playlist:
1. Bizness – tUnE yArDs
2. Breath of Life – Florence + the machine
3. Undisclosed Desires – Muse (+ pretty much anything Muse sings)
4. Cameo Lover – Kimbra
5. Talkin’ bout a Revolution – Tracy Chapman
6. Mountains of Things – Tracy Chapman
7. Aniron – Enya
8. Trains and Winter Rains – Enya
9. Mercy – One Republic
10. Say When – The Fray
11. Science and Faith – The Script
12. Hall of Fame – The Script
13. Walk Away – The Script
14. The Great Escape – Pink
15. Redemption Song – Bob Marley
16. No Woman No Cry – Bob Marley
The list is ultimately over 200 songs long but these are the songs that are the most played of the list. I hope by posting this I’ve introduced/reintroduced some inspirational music to someone out there. Even if you don’t listen to it for inspiration they’re all really great songs to have on your phone/ipod/listening device. 🙂
