full of twists and turns

May is shaping up to be an interesting month. I cannot believe the turn of events my life has taken within these past two years. I never in my life thought that I would be talking about this, but this is an extremely personal (& I feel is a very private) topic that I rarely ever address/talk about. From the time I was a small child all the way up to my adulthood, I’ve never considered myself to be very motherly, or carry any sort of maternal drive. I’ve always emphatically proclaimed that I would never ever, ever want to have children.

Of course watching the movie “Knocked Up” starring actors Katherine HeiglSeth Rogen really solidified that statement for me even more. I mean, the way that movie vividly, graphically, & accurately, portrayed childbirth really scared me shitless, & basically reaffirmed my choice not to have children. I know I shouldn’t base such a monumental, life-changing decision from what I see in those overblown, Hollywood movies, but I was already on the “not-gonna-happen” train, & it was barrelling down the tracks at full speed.

However, all of those lofty declarations came crashing down these past two years, & I’ve been taking the steps to procreate. I strongly dislike talking about my body, my health, or talking about women’s issues (like having a baby). It makes me feel extremely uncomfortable. When my older cousin (who is one year older than me) was going through her process of procreating, she kept asking me questions about whether or not I was planning on procreating anytime soon, & if so, which steps would I be taking to become pregnant. That conversation made me so visibly uncomfortable, I had to get up & walk away from the table. That’s how uncomfortable I get when asked about such a subject.

So it boils down to this. I am trying to have a baby. I’ve been taking the necessary steps to procreate, & I am actually getting excited (albeit, also extremely nervous at the same time). I just know in my heart of hearts that Jian will be a good dad (kind of weird too, but still great). As for myself, I think I’ll make it out alright (hopefully, I’ve got my fingers crossed). I’m also super lucky & fortunate to have my mom living with me, so I’m definitely going to be relying a lot on her past experiences, sage wisdom, & helpful advice. We’ll see how things turn out in the near future. Until then, cheers baby!

Today’s song of the day:

I’m starting my year of lists with the music category. Here I’ve listed my Top SIX all-time favorite bands/groups/artists, with the corresponding Top FIVE favorite songs by the artists. I’ve also included a few honorable mentions for each group, but that’s really just a fluffed up way of saying I couldn’t make up my mind & choose just 5 songs, so I crammed in a bunch of others at the end. As you will notice, most of my top picks are from Rock and Roll groups.


A Pop-y, flashy Alt-Rock band a-lá fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. This was the very first Alt-Rock band that I became a diehard fan of. I’ve seen this band several times in concert, & it always feels like a party amongst friends. This band’s music will always put me in a good mood, no matter what.

A band who’ll never let you forget that they hail from Portland, Oregon…but first, Alaska. With a lot to say about social issues & current events, this band surely knows how to tell a story with a super catchy, radio-friendly beat.

I love this smokey, Bluesy, Rock band with melodies that feel both gritty & soulful. This band always gives me a cozy, down home feeling, like I’m sitting on a porch while wearing my worn-in denim jacket & sipping on a glass of bourbon. (Did I mention that I’m going to see this band in concert this August?)

I’ve seen this band in concert before, & I can clearly state two facts. One, they sound just as fantastic live as they do on CD. Two, they sound nothing like The White Stripes. When I listen to this band, I imagine myself being in a motorcycle club & taking a relaxing cruise through open mountain roads (like in those over-glamourized outdoors/camping photos on Instagram).

All hail the British Invasion! Ok, I swear I’m not becoming an Anglophile. At least I think I’m not, but who knows? All I know is that Rock music from England is the tops! I really love the catchy, grungy, punk vibe from this band. Plus, lead singer Alex Turner is a pretty fit bloke…so, the eye candy is also a bonus.

My first memory of this band was back in the early 90s, when having a home computer with AOL internet was becoming popular. Our house had a clunky Compaq desktop computer with a pre-installed video player program that came with Weezer’s “Buddy Holly” music video along with some other random music videos. There wasn’t much for me to do on the computer in those days except for playing “Sam & Max Hit The Road” or play around with Microsoft Paint, but once I discovered this music video, I was playing it on repeat with no clue who this band was. It wasn’t until much later, in my 20s, that I truly started appreciating this chill, fun Alt-Rock band…which is why I’ve seen this band in concert several times already.

Hey, I finally figured out how to embed a music player on my blog!! I hope you enjoyed a little slice of my musical heaven. Enjoy & cheers, mates!

No song of the day because this whole post was about songs. LOL!

I’ve been running on a happy high today, getting ready for my upcoming trip to Van City (a.k.a. Vancouver). I think I packed my suitcase in record time. I had been procrastinating all week, & then time crept up on me & reminded me to get my sorry ass in gear & pack my bags already. To keep up this happy mood, I created a Spotify playlist of my current favorite songs (songs that have been playing on repeat in my car & at home). Enjoy the link below, & cheers!


 

No song of the day, since my entire playlist is my song(s) of the day.
