Rain.

A funny thing about my “Regn” playlist is that I always end up listening to it. When it’s raining and when it’s not. When it’s cold and when it’s warm. When it’s summer and when it’s winter. When it’s night and when it’s day. When it’s light and when it’s dark. It’s always rain, rain, rain. What does this mean? That my songs aren’t really suited for only rain at all? But when I look at the list, it’s exactly what I think of – cold, wet, drizzling rain. So is it always raining? I think that it is. It’s always raining in my head. Whether I’m happy or sad, tired or excited, there’s always the pitter patter of drops hitting the window in the background. So, whenever I feel like it, I know that “Regn” will always be there to welcome me.

And my legs tremble from strain. But by the finish line I’ll drain

Tune of the day CXXXII.

Because sometimes, you feel so incredibly inadequate.

Well I’m so sad tonight
And the words won’t come out right
It’s been a long day on the track
And its stamina that I lack

So won’t you run to me tonight?
Tonight could turn but we’re just lovers
But I’ll only ever be a middle distance runner

Well my heart is beating hard
And I’m off with a shot at the start
And my legs tremble from strain
But by the finish line I’ll drain

So won’t you run to me tonight?
Tonight let’s not talk about next summer
Cause I’ll only ever be a middle distance runner

Well I’m so proud tonight
Of the woman you’ve become
And I’m just too tired to fight
So my darling, I’ll succumb

But you’ll have to run to me tonight
Tonight I will love you forever
But I’ll only ever be a middle distance runner

You’re a wolf, boy, get out of this town.

Initiation of the winter break occurred according to tradition: HP marathon. Well, we only managed getting through two films, which is almost beginning to become a part of that tradition. Me and the closest person to a doppelgänger I know watched the third and sixth film, most of the time being spent with me doing a (poor, quite disturbing) impersonation of Snape saying inappropriate things, her laughing her ass off at said attempts, me calling everything and everyone adorable (especially a certain fit bloke  that happens to be a ginger) and finally, having deep discussions regarding some of the themes featured in the story. While fawning of the awkward charm of Ron Weasley, my mind couldn’t help but wander to another adorable ginger. I think I’m going too far, but I don’t really care. I’d rather feel too much, than not feel anything at all.

Tomorrow’s Christmas Eve, and I see three presents under the christmas tree that are for me. One of which is from American Apparel, I wonder what it is. Could it be a hoodie? I sure hope so, seeing as the salt and pepper one I own is one of my favorite possessions. As for the other two, I haven’t got a clue. It’s all very exciting *snort*. I’ve been procrastinating wrapping the presents I got for Mother and Uncle, simply because I’m not very good at it. It turns out neat and all, but I always end up using an entire roll of wrapping paper and making a big mess. I have to do it tomorrow morning though.

Random observation: This has been a completely unnecessary post. How fun.

Tune of the day, because…well, because of Lupin. Isn’t that enough?

Love & Expecto Patronum
