New Music and Old

After finding all this new music (Thomas Bergersen, Peter Hollens, etc.) I had forgotten about The Last Goodbye a bit. I put my iPod on shuffle a couple hours ago and it began to play. It was really nice hearing it again. I don't know why I ever stopped listening to it. Billy Boyd is such a talented singer, and I'm really glad they brought him back in to sing that song. I think if it was done any other way, it wouldn't have been as emotional and kind of the last hurrah to The Hobbit.
When I was younger, it was my favorite book and so it was a real treat to see it made into movies. Then when the last one faded out, I was left really sad, not just because all those people died. (Spoilers: Kili!!!! Fili!! At least Bombur survived. Kili and Bombur were my favorite.) 
End of Spoilers
It was more of a sad because that was the last time that I would get to see my childhood favorite book alive on the screen. This post probably should have been right after I saw the movie, and I think I did have something like this, but listening to The Last Goodbye reopened that can of feels.

A couple friends of the family came over to crash for the night. No problem. Well, this morning Bethany shook me awake. It turns out that there was a woodpecker on our chimney, and it was super noisy. Apparently, it had woken up Bethany and the others with it's noise super early in the morning.
So I had to get up and help figure out a way to get rid of it. I was wide awake by 6:20 and wanting to shoot myself. I am not a morning person. I mean, I like being up early, but I don't like getting up early. I am exhausted right now.

I'm about to watch the latest Arrow episode, and I am so nervous. Spoilers: I am so scared for Roy. I mean, he's in prison. I don't want him to get hurt or die or anything. End of Spoilers: Then again, I don't want anyone to die. So let's just take everyone and wrap them in bubble-wrap, yeah? How 'bout that, people.

I'm feeling really comfortable and awesome with the amount of writing I'm doing each day. I think it's balanced really well with all my other stuff.
Speaking of other stuff, I finally finished the Downton Abbey theme on piano. It was fun to learn and I'm excited to choose the next song that I'm going to learn. Anywho, better run.

    1. That sounds like a worthy cause. I'll get started on looking for donations. Goodness knows that we're not going to have enough money for all the bubble-wrap needed to protect our beloved characters.
