Two weeks. And I’m craving so many things from home. Soooo many things. Like different kinds of food. I miss variety.. But anyway, I also miss my Momma. Yup, like lots. And Dad.. and brother.. and Grandma.. and Grandpa.. and the baby girls.. so, it only took two weeks before I got down about being away. But that’s ok! Because it just takes about five seconds and I realize where I am again and all is well with the world. I’m in “France ya’ll!” (Lilly voice from Bridesmaids.)
There’s my first time admitting that I’m just the teeny tiniest bit homesick. But don’t expect that often. After all.. I’M IN FRANCE.
I’m living out one of the biggest dreams I’ve ever had in my life.
I was searching for a song to perfectly embody what chasing this dream is like and I realized that no other song could express this better than “Dreams” by Van Halen. I remember seeing this video for the first time with my Daddy, so it’s even more perfect. I get my musical tastes from him. I guess he’s got pretty good taste. Mmm, love me some Van Halen.
The current project I chose for J2150 centers around The Blue Note in downtown Columbia. I’m incredibly excited about this project because music consumes a large part of my life. I love all kinds of music ranging from 80’s to Christian contemporary. So, let’s get started.
When I was young, I remember riding with my dad in his truck while he listened to bands like Metallica and Van Halen. I loved those times I spent with my dad just driving around and listening to cool music. Being older now, those times influenced my taste in music. Listening to those types of bands brings back good memories accompanied with well, cool music.
Lately, the majority of my listening preferences have included everything on K-LOVE. This radio station is so incredibly uplifting and positive and I can’t help but have a great day when I listen to them. I love David Crowder Band, Casting Crowns, Sanctus Real, Kutless and Matt Hammitt. Everything about these artists and their songs puts a smile on my face that stays for the remainder of the day.
