Bridge of light-Pink

And it is back:D

Right so this week has been a bit of a tough one but there is no better way to start the weekend than this song right here…

Happy Feet 2 is one of my favourite movies of all time as dancing and singing penguins can always make people laugh and feel better so I felt that this song was very appropriate for the week.

Bridge of light was sung by Gloria to her son to make him calm down and feel better. Every time I hear this song I also calm down and realise how important love is and the fact that we are alive is good enough for me. The little fights aren’t worth anything…

Have a great weekend guys and remember: Only love can build us a bridge of light

Time to smell the roses

Hey guys

So I am sitting on my bed and crying. Nothing is wrong but I am listening to a CD I haven’t listened to in a very long time. 2 years to be exact… This was mine and Ryan’s favourite CD and band. Simple Plan was like our jam and now here I am listening to it without him. I feel like I am cheating or something but now my brain is working and it is time for everyone to wake up and smell the roses!

See Ryan died and now I have not enjoyed the lyrics of this amazing band in 2 years. That is just wrong on so many levels. This CD got me through a lot in the past and it can still do the same today. Right so it is now time for us all to learn a lesson. Everything in life happens for a reason. We have people come in and out of our lives for reasons. Relationships mould into something unique for a reason. Every relationship is different and they all have that unique aspect to them in order for you to grow as a person and as friends, siblings, spouses etc. I am who I am because I need to influence, help, support people in such a way that they understand and feel better. I am a fixer and when I can’t fix, I break or don’t sleep until I can fix. Maybe that is my purpose in life… To be there for people and make them believe in themselves and run to me when they need help. I am ok with this because its who I have become and I love who I am! Every person in my life has helped turn me into the girl I am right now and I thank them all because if it wasn’t for them, I would not be who I am. For example, I write because of my old English teacher who taught me to believe in my writing. I was able to help people medically because of Timor( there is your shout out Timmy) My aunt and uncle made me believe in my photography… these are just some examples.

Now time for the lesson… you woke up this morning for a reason. You gave that person a hug for a reason. You said hello to that guy so that one day he could become your husband. Guys there is so much negativity in this world at the moment that we have all lost sight of what really matters and that is our love and acceptance of people. People are the way that they are for a reason and if you can’t accept that then that is you problem not theirs. Don’t hate someone because of who they love or what they look like. If they happy and are a good person, that is all that matters. If we were all the same then we would not have doctors, nurses, artists, different music genres or movies. Can you imagine no horror movies or comedy… only Romance because why would we need variety if there was only one type of person…

Embrace people’s differences and be glad and proud of who you are because your uniqueness helps someone out and helps them grow and learn

Here’s to never growing up- Avril Lavigne

untitled
So for my Friday song choice, I have chosen Here’s to never growing up. Avril’s song is the best way to explain what is going on at the moment in a lot of our lives. We are so prone to growing up but there is nothing wrong with staying little in some aspects of life.

So here is to never growing up and to be honest, I don’t want to grow up. I am very happy needing my daddy and messing ice-cream all over my face. No better feeling in the world:p

Have a great weekend and stay young

Lyrics:

Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs
With the boom box blaring as we’re falling in love
I got a bottle of whatever, but it’s getting us drunk
Singing here’s to never growing up

Call up all our friends, go hard this weekend
For no damn reason, I don’t think we’ll ever change
Meet you at the spot, half past ten o’clock
We don’t ever stop, and we’re never gonna change

Say, won’t you say forever stay
If you stay forever hey
We can stay forever young

Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs
With the boom box blaring as we’re falling in love
I got a bottle of whatever, but it’s getting us drunk
Singing, here’s to never growing up

We’ll be running down the street, yelling “Kiss my ass!”
I’m like yeah whatever, we’re still living like that
When the sun’s going down, we’ll be raising our cups
Singing, here’s to never growing up

Oh whoa, oh whoa, here’s to never growing up
Oh whoa, oh whoa, here’s to never growing up

We live like rock stars, dance on every bar
This is who we are, I don’t think we’ll ever change (hell no!)
They say just grow up, but they don’t know us
We don’t give a fuck, and we’re never gonna change

Say, won’t you say forever stay
If you stay forever hey
We can stay forever young

Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs
With the boom box blaring as we’re falling in love
I got a bottle of whatever, but it’s getting us drunk
Singing, here’s to never growing up

We’ll be running down the street, yelling “Kiss my ass!”
I’m like yeah whatever, we’re still living like that
When the sun’s going down, we’ll be raising our cups
Singing, here’s to never growing up

Oh whoa, oh whoa, here’s to never growing up
Oh whoa, oh whoa, here’s to never growing up

Say, won’t you say forever stay
If you stay forever hey
We can stay forever young

Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs
With the boom box blaring as we’re falling in love
I got a bottle of whatever, but it’s getting us drunk
Singing, here’s to never growing up

We’ll be running down the street, yelling “Kiss my ass!”
I’m like yeah whatever, we’re still living like that
When the sun’s going down, we’ll be raising our cups
Singing, here’s to never growing up

Oh whoa, oh whoa, here’s to never growing up
Oh whoa, oh whoa, (yeah raise your glass and say) here’s to never growing up
Oh whoa, oh whoa, (da de da de da) here’s to never growing up (no we’re never growing up)
Oh whoa, oh whoa, here’s to never growing up

Adam Lambert Live in South Africa!!!

Adam Lambert
(http://www.adamofficial.com/za/adam-lambert-photos)

By Ashlee Zlotnick

On a serious note I am not sure how anyone can begin to sum up the event of the year! Adam Lambert live in Johburg at the Coca-Cola dome was one concert everyone will be talking about for a very long time.

Walking in to the Dome all you could hear was thousands of screaming fans with their Adam shirts on, black nail polish and their party shoes on. Latoya Delazy was his opening act. My G-D she has so much energy and she really brought the stage to life. Everyone was jamming and singing along to all her songs whilst we all eagerly awaited Adam. She really made us all proud!

Then the lights dimmed and all you could hear was screaming fans for Adam. The band came on and then BOOM! The singing G-D himself came on stage and it was as if your heart stopped and the music entered your soul! Adam made 4 outfit changes and each outfit was more glamours than the pervious one.  He sang songs such as Trespassing, Fever,Underneath,Cuckoo and more. As a dancer I feel the need to take my hat off to Adam’s dancers. My G-D they were unbelievable and one of them were in high heels! I know how hard it is to dance in heels but this guy made it look like a breeze. Their names are Terrance and Johnny.
His band
Brian London, his musical director who plays on keyboard, Tommy(lead guitar), Ashley on bass and Rick on drums.

His back up singers were amazing and had angelic voices that were breath-taking. Their names are Traci and Reyna. One of the best things of the night was when Adam laughed. His laugh is so contagious and turned everyone in that room into screaming little girls. The atmosphere was astonishing, the sound was great and Adam made everyone believe that anything is possible if you just believe. He went from boy born in Indianapolis but raised in San Diego to a total singing sensation.

He has by far the best stage presence I have ever seen and I have seen a lot of people performing! The night ended and no-one wanted to go home. We gathered in the pouring rain and started to sing his songs and dance in the rain. A night I will never forget!

I have tried to give you all the details I could but guys to be honest, Adam is the type of performer that gives you a show you will never forget and never be able to describe fully how amazing his shows are. So next time he is in your town, I strongly suggest you go out and see him perform!

Kickin’ In-Adam Lambert

I think it is only fair that this weeks Friday song is by Adam Lambert as tonight I am going to be seeing him live in concert. I am beyond excited for this concert! I have been looking forward to this for EVER and finally the day has come for me to see him.

‘Kickin’ In ‘is one of my favourite songs from his new album ‘Trespassing’. The beat and lyrics of this song just make you want to get up and dance with your friends and have a total jol(fun). So it is time to let go, unwind and dance your way to the weekend!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Lyrics:

She wants to be up there
In the air where the clouds live
The sweetest seeds make the best trees
30, 000 feet she can smile and now

She puts the shot glass down
She asks for another round
She wants to hit the clouds
Honey are you up there now
She puts the shot glass down
She asks for another round
Girl don’t you hit the ground
Is it kickin’ in?

You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
Honey are you up there?

You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
Honey are you up there?

She wants to introduce me
To her friend Eddie
What is she tryin’ to do to me?
He got words that rhyme
He got a dirty mind
Persuasive
Am I about to do it now?

She puts the shot glass down
She asks for another round
She wants to hit the clouds
Honey are you up there now?
She puts the shot glass down
She asks for another round
Girl don’t you hit the ground
Is it kickin’ in?

You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
Honey are you up there?

You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
Honey are you up there?

Bounce, bounce, bounce,
Bounce, bounce, bounce,
Bounce, bounce, bounce.
Bounce, bounce, bounce,
Bounce, bounce, bounce,
Bounce, bounce, bounce.

And now, she puts her shot glass down,
She asks for another round,
She wants to hit the clouds,
Honey are you up there?
Now, she puts her shot glass down,
She asks for another round,
Girl, don’t you hit the ground,
Is is kickin’ in?

You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
Honey are you up there?

You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
Honey are you up there?

You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
Honey are you up there?

You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
Honey are you up there?

You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
Honey are you up there?

You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
You can feel it, it’s kickin in
Honey are you up there?

Never Grow up-Taylor Swift

I know it is not Friday but here is the weekend song.

I feel very old at the moment. My youngest sister is becoming a teenager next week and my lil sis is finishing garde 11 ans going into matric. As I leave, the one becomes head of the school and the other goes into high school. So for this week I feel that Never Grow up is an appropriate song because I feel like my little siblings are growing up too fast!!! On top of it all, my little brother is turning 16! I want them all to know that I love them all with all my heart and soul and no matter how old they get, they will always be my little siblings.

 

Your little hands wrapped around my finger
And it’s so quiet in the world tonight
Your little eyelids flutter ’cause you’re dreamingSo I tuck you in, turn on your favorite night light
To you, everything’s funny
You got nothing to regret
I’d give all I have, honey
If you could stay like that

Oh, darling, don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
Just stay this littleOh, darling, don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
It could stay this simple
I won’t let nobody hurt you
Won’t let no one break your heartNo, no one will desert you
Just try to never grow up, never grow up

You’re in the car on the way to the movies
And you’re mortified your mom’s dropping you off
At 14, there’s just so much you can’t do
And you can’t wait to move out someday and call your own shots
But don’t make her drop you off around the block
Remember that she’s getting older, too
And don’t lose the way that you dance around
In your PJs getting ready for school

Oh, darling, don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling, don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
It could stay this simple
No one’s ever burned you
Nothing’s ever left you scarred
And even though you want to
Just try to never grow up

Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room
Memorize what it sounded like when your dad gets home
Remember the footsteps, remember the words said
And all your little brother’s favorite songs
I just realized everything I haveIs someday gonna be gone

So here I am in my new apartment
In a big city, they just dropped me off
It’s so much colder than I thought it would be
So I tuck myself in and turn my night light on
Wish I’d never grown upI wish I’d never grown up

Oh, I don’t wanna grow up, wish I’d never grown up
Could still be little
Oh, I don’t wanna grow up, wish I’d never grown up
It could still be simple

Oh, darling, don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling, don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
It could stay this simple
Won’t let nobody hurt you
Won’t let no one break your heart
And even through to you want toPlease try to never grow up
Don’t you ever grow up
(Never grow up)Just never grow up

Bounce Back- Charice

Friday song is BACK!

This week has not been an easy one for me so my song for the week is….Bounce Back by Charice. This song comes off her album ‘Infinity’ Do yourself a favour and go buy this CD. Most amazing CD ever!

This song is about getting back onto your feet and keeping your head held high! Do not stay down because you are just going to be kicked in the face.

Lyrics:

No excuses, you don’t need to explain,
No apologies, I’m over all the pain
I pulled myself up again,
Out of the flames, I made it through
I’m officially over you
Thought I was the one
Who’s gonna crumble and fall
Thought I was done
But there ain’t nothing at all
I can’t overcome, no, no
I bounce back
It ain’t the first time that I’ve been knocked off my feet
Won’t be the last time that I find an inner strength in me
So if you thought that I
Would break down and cry
Baby you don’t even know me
I bounce back
Don’t think I’m broken or losing any sleep
Cause I’m not missing what I don’t really need
Make no mistake you’re to blame
Feels good to say I’m brand new
And officially over you
You thought I was the one
Who’s gonna crumble and fal
l You thought I was done
But there ain’t nothing at all
I can’t overcome
I bounce back
It ain’t the first time that I’ve been knocked off my feet
Won’t be the last time that I find an inner strength in me
So if you thought that I
Would break down and cry
Baby you don’t even know me
I bounce back
I’ll be stronger than I ever was before
Ever better now, I already closed the door
Was caught in the eye of the storm
Still I made my way home
Bet you never thought that I
Would bounce back, oh…
I bounce back, oh…
I’m stronger than I ever was
You can’t hold me down because…
I bounce back
It ain’t the first time that I’ve been knocked off my feet
Won’t be the last time that I find an inner strength in me
So if you thought that
I Would break down and cry
Baby you don’t even know me
I bounce back
It ain’t the first time that I’ve been knocked off my feet
Won’t be the last time that I find an inner strength in me
So if you thought that
I Would break down and
Maybe you don’t even know me
I bounce back
Bounce back,bounce back
Bounce back, bounce back
