i remember when our voices used to sound the same

song of the day
breakneck speed by tokyo police club
i love this band havent heard from them in a few years but i discovered this song today and a new album coming soon. it feels good to be back. it feels good to be back. it feels good to be bad?

so i came to the conclusion that if i survive law school then i might never die cause this is the hardest thing i have ever done and i have a feeling surviving it will make me invincible or something like that. makes sense right?.... these are the things i think about

i have a friend named ashlee carroll she is a super talented photographer i wish i was artistic and talented like her i see artistic people and want that to be more me. i know not many people read this but you should check out her site http://www.ashleebrookephotography.com this is one of her pictures that i think is just sweet.

easy tiger

song of the day
everybody knows by ryan adams

i freaking love this song probably my favorite of all time. i remember buying this album (easy tiger) in the summer of 2007 crazy it was that long ago, but this album has had a huge impact on my life since then. start to finish this album is gold. this song stood out to me and has been my favorite ever since. i saw ryan adams that summer as well best show i have ever been to wish he was still touring.

how the hell did i get here

song of the day
what were the chances? by damien jurado

I was in the desert waving planes and burning phonebooks
To a tune that was famous the year I was born
Do not leave me dancing alone

song of the day
monster hospital by metric
i love metric this song is about going crazy and i kind of feel like that sometimes but whatever

all this hype about the ncaa tournament has got me thinking about the nit. i think it shows a lot about a teams character how they perform in the nit. i mean yeah we werent one of the best 65 teams in the country but we were close so what do we do pack it up and try next year or do we go leave it all out there and try to get to new york and win the nit? i think it would be incredibly hard to give it your all in a tournament like that.
life lesson from this story i think: even though you might not get what you want or were trying for it shows a lot about the kind of person you are if you give it your all in whatever you end up with? so stop being a whinny bitch steven and suck it up

volume 2

album of the day
volume 2 by she & him
stream the album here http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=124615798&ft=1&f=1039
this doesnt come out till the end of the month but its streaming at npr zooey and m ward are amazing check it out. so far i think it is pretty amazing. some people as in nikki saenz say zooey seems like she is stuck in the 60s i disagree and think its awesome.

so i love spring break i need to study but i keep finding things to distract me such as: soccer music basketball the gym and even filling out taxes and financial aid. i might clean in a second to avoid outlining
day light savings kind of messed me up never thought losing an hour would screw with me for 2 days shouldnt of stayed up till 4 on saturday good thinking steven.

my dad went to pick up my brother from his mission today kind of weird he has been gone 2 years

song of the day
l.e.s artistes and im a lady by santigold

kind of forgot about this cd but there was a point a few years ago where i listened to it non stop for a month straight glad i found it again today

What am I here for
I left my home to disappear is all
I'm here for myself
Not to know you
I don't need no one else
Fit in so good the hope is that you cannot see me later
You don't know me
I am an introvert an excavator
I'm duckin' out for now
a face in dodgy elevators
Creep up and suddenly
I found myself
an innovator

some kind of nature

song of the day
some kind of nature by gorillaz featuring lou reed
got the new gorillaz album was pretty excited about it but kind of let down but this is my favorite song on it

oral arguments are done which means legal research and writing is done for the year crazy never worked that hard for what will probably be a crappy grade but what can you do
my mind is on spring break but i still have 2 days and then i actually need to study over spring break as finals are in a month and i am terrified

broken bells

song of the day
high road by broken bells
just bought this cd today so far amazing!

not the best day today but once oral arguments are over things will be a little better

I’d fix it if I could
And I’d always win
I’d always win
And you’d always lose

passion pit and dan clark

song of the day
little secrets by passion pit
this cd is awesome this is probably my favorite from it. can make a good mood even better. they are playing in salt lake in april so if you live there you should go cause they are awesome meanwhile i will be stuck in nebraska living in a law school dream world or something like that

so round one of oral arguments went tonight think i did well got lots of compliments but i still hate public speaking the whole time i would have rather been unsticking my tongue from a frozen poll or something painful. who likes public speaking i mean yeah people can do it and get through it but i know very few people who are like "hey public speaking awesome let me do it twice". however dan clark makes his living off public speaking http://www.danclarkspeak.com/ i have had a lot of interaction with dan clark he is a great guy and nicest guy youll meet but his website and some of his things crack me up but this guy is always speaking and to tons of people in tons of places i respect that cause i do not think that could ever be me. so what am i going to do instead oh be a lawyer and potentially be arguing in court consistently. good thinking steven. so i guess i better get over this fear of speaking in public took a large step tonight and did well so hopefully i can keep the momentum rolling.

come pick me up

song of the day
come pick me up by ryan adams
this song pretty much rips my heart out in a therapeutic way sometimes when you are down listening to depressing music helps not sure what it is maybe the fact that others are down and have expressed their pain and emotions through music

oral arguments tomorrow f*ck me but whatever

we were promised jetpacks

song of the day
quiet little voices by we were promised jetpacks
a friend at school turned me on to this new scottish band. i like what i hear so far. and we were promised jetpacks might be the best band name ever!

im really tired today and not much to say

"Most of the time I got nothing to say
When I do it's nothing and nobody's there to listen anyway
I know I'm probably better off this way
I just listen to the voices on the TV 'til I'm tired
My eyes grow heavy and I fade away"

i woke up

song of the day
i woke up with this song in my head this morning by bright eyes
wish this was true

"I woke up and put your record on this morning.
With no singing. With no swinging too.
There is no dancing. There is no missing you."

sleeping lessons

song of the day
sleeping lessons by the shins
this is one of my favorite shins songs and love the music video. this band is one of my favorites but havent done anything since 2007 i know they have been having issues and lead singer james mercer has a new band called broken bells with a cd due next week hopefully it is good cause the shins blow my mind.

turned in my brief today pretty good feeling. i mean who knows what my grade is but i feel like i accomplished something it was a pretty big project.

my little brother joe won the hockey state championship tonight pretty excited for him he had 37 saves. im sad i couldnt make it but nebraska is cool i guess? not really

"And I keep looking for that blindfold faith
Lighting candles to a cynical saint
Who wants the last laugh at the fly trapped in the windowsill tape
You can go right out of your mind trying to escape
From the panicked paradox of day to day"
