I haven’t felt much like writing this evening and I find it kind of strange that I feel inclined to post this now, when I should be heading to bed. No new words have appeared on the single page that is currently my short story – due to be shared with the rest of the class in less than eight days’ time! But, on the way to work this morning (it’s been almost twenty-four hours?!), I heard this song on the radio and I wanted to share it with you… Right now. I couldn’t done it earlier but, here you go.
Journey get a lot of stick when, in my opinion, they are (or were) a really good band. I don’t know; they seem to change quite frequently and I remember hearing that their singer (Steve Perry?) left the band again several months ago. I don’t particularly like ‘that song‘, which is one of the sole reasons people tend to despise them, which is also cruel. They are ‘softer’ than many other rock bands and, they do preach a Christian message of faith throughout. But, I think they’re brilliant and, this one song is one of my favourites; something I first heard around the time that I broke up with my ex; a song that inspired me to buy their Greatest Hits album.
I had another favourite before this. Perhaps I’ll share that one on a different day. 😉
Please read on if you’d like to see the lyrics. Oh, and my apologies to anyone who really doesn’t like Journey!! 😛
I got myself out of bed about forty-five minutes ago, only to discover the rain on this, my day off. It’s completely destroyed my hope of going to Bath for the day and doing a walk around there. Looking at the forecast, we’re supposed to have intermittent showers for most of the day. I don’t know what I’m going to do to keep myself busy today. Sometimes, the bad weather doesn’t help a mood that’s already on the decline. I feel like just going back to bed and lazing the day away, which is such a waste of a day off work. 😦
Tomorrow’s forecast looks a little drier (but still cloudy), aside from a few hours of fog in the morning (like yesterday, I assume). So, I’m going to try and keep my hopes up that I’ll be able to go to Bath tomorrow.
I’m really struggling with this week’s writing homework as well. We have to write a scene of dialogue that involves some form of conflict. Last week, in the class, we read a scene just like this from No Country for Old Men. All I have in my head are thoughts of writing a fictional dialogue between two people who recently got engaged and that is so wrong! I can’t think of anything else or, where there might be an issue of conflict. I might just have to admit that I couldn’t do the homework this week…
We were almost set with something else, which would’ve involved writing a list of basic descriptions for each of the people you pass on an average day. That sounds quite fun and I imagine that’s what we’ll get set with this week.
