Hearing Songs At Wal-Mart

On my song challenge for today, it said pick a song that reminds of somewhere. That is actually very difficult for me to do because apparently I don’t pay that much attention when someplace and a song starts playing and remembering later on. Now thinking about it for two hours, I figured out two times in my head. One was my junior prom and the other at Wal-Mart. I love both stories but the second one is more me than the first because it was more of a random happening than the second–well I take that back. Both stories are pretty random, but you can definitely see me doing the second a lot more than the first one. Here I’ll explain.

One day, my mom, sister and I went to Wal-Mart. Mom and Em got their nails done and I was around the store trying to keep busy and out of everybody’s way. Which is kind of impossible really. Anyways, I was looking through different music and movies in the rows. Usually when I get over in that department. They will play sport advertisements and play a new released movie on these flat screen TV’s. Well occasionally they will play different music videos. Normally it’s either pop or country videos and that’s it. I heard this song on the TV’s behind me and it was of a song I liked. It was Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” and once it started up, I could not help stop myself. I started singing right along with it and started to dance a little in my chair. It was a first for me. Then after the song was over, I was just about to go back to the book section when “Love You Like A Love Song” by Selena Gomez started playing. My mom and Em had to come get me out of there before the third song started playing.

Once I went with my dad to Wal-Mart, he was waiting in line talking to this lady and I recognized a song that was playing faintly in the back of the store. They were playing “What I’ve Done” by Linkin Park. After it was done, I noticed I was attracting attention behind because where I was parked, there was a bench and I was texting from there. Two people were standing behind me watching me text. It doesn’t bother me that much, but for my dad it does. While he and this lady was talking about different things. I recognized another song, except this song was much harder to figure out than the last one. It literally took me at least two minutes to the melody right. I even had to move up to hear it because my dad’s voice was carrying around that area. From the place where I was, you could see the TV’s in the back, so I used that to help determined what song was playing. Then I got the melody of the chorus and figured out it was Lacey Sturm of Flyleaf song from Underworld: Awakening “Heavy Prey” because it was January and it just released on DVD. I knew the words to the song and melody was there but by the time I finally knew what it was the song was over.

Who I Am Today

I love God and as much as God has gotten me through the rough patches of my life with a few or more scratches all over my body. The people who have taught me to love myself are Nikki Sixx, DJ Ashba, and James Michael. Also known as Sixx:A.M. Even though I don’t listen to them as much as I did when the new year started, I still feel the love I found when I first found out about them. I don’t think I’ll ever tired of them. Sixx:A.M. is an inspiring band to listen to and when you listen to their songs, “Life Is Beautiful,” “Lies Of The Beautiful People,” and “Skin” you will understand why I love them so much. They make you want to love life and yourself than you ever did before. I feel grateful that there is ever such a band that wants to show everybody is beautiful in their own way.

For me, I hated myself every day for most of my life because other people just showed me that they didn’t care and made me feel like I was the ugliest person on the plant. God created me and he doesn’t give someone something if he knew they couldn’t handle it. I pray to him every night. Then through my headphones you can hear a slight melody of “Lies Of The Beautiful People” and sometimes if ir’s not too dark in my room you can see going crazy on my bed because I’m kind of dancing. Unless I’m really depressed I definitely won’t be hearing “Skin” on my iPod playing at 10pm. I love that song, but I’m smart enough to know it will make me cry so I don’t listen during at night. I love these guys!
