Here I am, living in Southern California attending the school of my dreams, working at fashion shows, watching runway shows in class, going to the library to check out the latest book on Coco Chanel, sitting poolside on my days off, and yet I haven't actually sat down and processed what all I've been doing.
And of course it would be One Direction that would pull me out of this dreamland I'm living to actually process whoa.
Lately, I've felt like I've been higher than the clouds. I'm just amazed that life could really be so good, and I'm forever grateful everyday for the incredible opportunities I've been given.
And it's okay to celebrate that, you know? I personally don't think we do it enough!
Clouds by One Direction is about love, naturally, about the nonstop excitement that is love. A kind of love that takes you higher than the clouds, a love that you never wanna come down from. And whilst I'm not in love with a particular (man) per say, I'm in love with life. I don't wanna come down from the clouds!
Plus, whenever I listen to this song, I feel so loose and joyful. I feel like anything is possible.
"Here we go again
Another go around for all of my friends
Another night stopped will it never end
We're never coming back down
Yeah we're looking down on the clouds..."
The second song on their album, I simply couldn't resist. This song was actually the first song that I instantly fell in love with on their album, mostly because I love me a little humour and honestly, it sounds like a total Irish jig and you can't help but get up and shake dem hips!
Act My Age directly relates to a recent project I just completed. In my Effective Speaking class, we had to do an honor speech on someone who greatly inspires us and I chose to do my doll Jess. I went on to say how imagination is greater than knowledge, so why can't we imagine a world where we age in numbers, but not in heart!
For crying out loud, I still play with a doll and I'm almost twenty and I will not act my age if that means giving up toys that bring me joy and allow me to be creative and imaginative!
"When I'm fat and old and my kids think I'm a joke
'Cause I move a little slow when I dance
I can count on you after all that we've been through
'Cause I know that you'll always understand
I won't act my age, no I won't act my age
No, I'll still feel the same around you
