READING BREAK: DAY 4 – ‘I won’t give up on us, even if the skies get rough.’

Lyrics in title – I Won’t Give Up – Jason Mraz

Waaasssupp? It rained all day here today. Just thought I’d let you all know that.

Productivity rating for the day = 5.5/10 — I’m not very happy with that. ALTHOUGH, I did manage to learn a lot of things that I hadn’t learned in class before for Biology 121 — so THAT is good news! Today I just felt so distracted/I spent A LOT of time on Bio studying/concept understanding.

I’m still hoping that the days will go by slowly. I’ve been listening to a lot of music today, and music, as you probably know (if you’ve read previous blog posts of mine) makes me think about things. In reference to the lyrics in my title — I think I first heard this song, either right AFTER Christmas break…or right BEFORE…hmmm, I forget now…but that doesn’t matter. When I first heard it, I thought ‘meh. it’s a slow song, not really my taste’..I had expected something else considering it was by Jason Mraz (considering his son ‘I’m Yours’…which is totally DIFFERENT!)– but after awhile of listening to it, I thought ‘Hmm…. this isn’t so bad’. The lyrics are so ‘pretty’ and meaningful… it’s just such a DEEP song…and sometimes that kind of deepness is lacking in our lives. I feel as though I can almost RELATE to the passion and emotion in the singer’s voice. And sometimes, with friends, if things are rough…I just want to overcome the storm, and look past it, and I never want to GIVE UP..and feel like there could be ‘more’. And whatever happens, in the end, staying friends and getting through it, is what means the most. Rough skies + weathering the storm = something potentially everlasting. So yeah, as I was saying, this song just stuck out to me today, especially after some things that have been going on in my life lately-ish. ❤  s.a.p.p.y.
