Okay, so I'm actually starting to plan a little for Oxford. And when I say, "a little" I mean I'm in pre-planning mode. I'm reading travel guidebooks. It's just so much information to take in and I still have to write a lot of stuff for one of my study abroad classes... I'm ready to already be there emotionally, but everything else just needs to be worked out now.

My Favorite Christmas Song




Christmas Song
by The Dave Matthews Band

She was his girl, he was her boyfriend
She'd be his wife, and make him her husband
A surprise on the way any day any day
One healthy little giggling, dribbling baby boy
The wisemen came, three made their way
To shower him with love as he lay in the hay

Shower him with love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love was all around.

Not very much of his childhood was known
Kept his mother Mary worried always out on his own
He met another Mary, who for a reasonable fee,
Less than reputable was known to be

His heart was full of love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love was all around.

When Jesus Christ was nailed to his tree
Said oh Daddy-O, I can see how it all soon will be
I came to shed a little light on this darkening scene
Instead I fear I've spilled the blood my children all around
The blood of my children all around
The blood of my childrens all around

So I'm told, so the story goes
The people he knew were less than golden-hearted
Gamblers and robbers,
Drinkers and jokers, all soul searchers
Like you and me, like you and me
Rumors insisted that he soon would be
For his deviations taken into custody
By the authorities, less informed than he
Drinkers and jokers, all soul searchers

Searching for love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love was all around.

Preparations were made for a celebration day
He said eat this bread but think of it as me
Drink this wine and dream it will be
The blood of our children all around
The blood of our children all around
The blood of our children all around

Father up above
Why in all this hatred do you fill me up with
Love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love is all around

Father up above
Why in all this hatred do you fill me up with love
Fill me love, love, yeah
Love. love, love
Love, love, and the blood of our children all around.



I couldn't decide which video I liked better. So i didn't choose.

I think Christmas should be postponed this year. Not canceled, just postponed. I'm not ready for it yet. I don't think anyone in my family is ready for it yet.

The 28th seems like a good date to me.

Silver Lining
by Rilo Kiley

And I'm not going back
Into rags or in the hole
And our bruises are coming
But we will never fold
And I was your silver lining
As the story goes
I was your silver lining
But now I'm gold

Hooray hooray
I'm your silver lining
Hooray hooray
But now I'm gold

And I was your silver lining
High up on my toes
You were running through fields of hitch-hikers
As the story goes

Hooray hooray
I'm your silver lining
Hooray hooray
But now I'm gold
Hooray hooray
I'm your silver lining
Hooray hooray
But now i'm gold

And the grass it was a ticking
And the sun was on the rise
I never felt so wicked
As when I willed our love to die
And I was your silver lining
As the story goes
I was your silver lining
But now i'm gold

Hooray hooray
I'm your silver lining
Hooray hooray
But now I'm gold
Hooray hooray
I'm your silver lining
Hooray hooray
But now I'm gold
But now I'm gold
But now I'm gold

i thought this was pretty fun and some of the songs work better than others, but it's funny all the same!


IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?
So, here's how it works:
1. Open your music library.
2. Put it on shuffle.
3. Press play.
4. For every question, type the song that's playing.
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button.
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool...

I know I should be updating with Oxford plans and news. But I'm so excited I don't even know where to start! I have too much going on in my head right now that I couldn't even begin to tell you all the craziness that is my life. First, I have to get through this semester which still includes: a term paper, two regular tests, a quiz, and 5 finals. We'll see if I make it.
