This is Magical!

Hallelujah

“I heard there was a secret chord

That David played, and it pleased the Lord

But you don’t really care for music, do ya?

Well it goes like this, the fourth, the fifth

The minor fall, and the major lift

The baffled king composing, Hallelujah!

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah…

Your faith was strong, but you needed proof

You saw her bathing on the roof

Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew ya…

She tied you to a kitchen chair

She broke your thrown, she cut your hair,

And from your lips she drew the "Hallelujah!”

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah…

Baby, I’ve been here before

I’ve seen this room, I’ve walked this floor

I used to live alone before I knew ya…

And I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch,

Love is not a victory march

It’s a cold and it’s a broken “Hallelujah!”

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah…

Well, there was a time when you let me know

What’s really going on below

But now you never show that to me, do ya?

And remember when I moved in you

The Holy Ghost was moving, too

And every breath we drew was “Hallelujah!”

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah…

Well maybe there’s a God above

But all I’ve ever learned from love

Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya…

And it’s not a cry you can hear at night

It’s not somebody who’s seen the light

It’s a cold and it’s a broken “Hallelujah!”

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah…

I did my best, but it wasn’t much

I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch

I told the truth, I didn’t come to fool ya…

And even though it all went wrong

I’ll stand before the Lord of Song

With nothing on my tongue but “Hallelujah!”

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah…“

~"Hallelujah”, originally Leonard Cohen

This is one of my favorite songs in the world. It’s beautiful, moving, and powerful; I always want to sing my heart out to this song when I hear it. I have it memorized–depending on which version you hear. This was a slightly different version from Cohen’s original, but it’s still beautiful.

Well, that’s my post of the evening! I hope you all have a lovely Saturday, my dear starrlings!

Sincerely,

Starr

Just one last little message to all of my starrlings. Sweet dreams! <3

Just a little Saturday morning post!

Hello there, tumblr! Just thought I’d make a little post whilst waiting for my doctor to get her butt into the office. These routine check-ups are annoying…I’m almost nineteen, been coming here for five years, and the doctor still can’t get in here less than an hour late! Good grief!

But on a more positive note, I’ve reached eighteen followers! That’s my new record! So I’m glad to have you, my lovely eighteen little ‘starrlings’! Welcome to my blog!

I hope everyone has a great weekend; today marks the start of my Spring vacation! Ten days at home, away from college! Now if only I didn’t have work to do…

Happy Saturday, everyone!

Sincerely,
Starr

Maybe I’ll find my ‘daylight’ soon. Whatever it is.

I hope you find your 'daylight’, my starrlings. :) <3

Crazy post...?

Just had a crazy, slightly mind-blowing discussion with the nurse that comes to take care of my brother during the day, involving the pets and the possibiliity of reincarnation:

What if now, in this moment, you think you own your dog/cat/whatever your beloved pet may be, but in reality, that pet is really your reincarnated form, and the reason they act the way they do with you is because your trying to send your younger soul a message or teach a lesson they’ll need for later in life? Like with my late dog, Jenna; maybe all her ‘sass’ and 'sarcasm’ was really from my older soul, telling the younger me in this current time to get my shit together?!


But think about it. Seriously. Maybe your beloved pet is really your reincarnation set back to be with you in the present to teach you something you’ll need later in order to reach that reincarnated state.

…Maybe I just need more sleep….

…In OTHER news, twenty followers!!! Hi, you two new lovely people!!! :)

My Thoughts On Crushes & Internet Flirting

I’m not really the sort to ask guys out. Maybe that’s just me following the whole stereotype of ‘guys should ask girls out’. Maybe I’m just shy. But I don’t think I know how to ask guys out without making a fool out of myself, or just making things awkward.

But maybe I need to approach things differently. I might have a feeling that I could like you, but at the same time I’m not sure. So maybe instead of asking you out, I should find some clever eway to ask if I can simply get to know you better. And not through texting or the internet.

Because, let’s face it: if you can only send me flirtacious messages on facebook, or through a text, but can’t be there to physically talk to or hang out, then how am I supposed to think of you as anything more than a passing fancy?

I’m sure I’m not the first one to admit that I like getting that message now and then in my inbox that says “You have a pretty smile!”, or “I think you’re cute!”. Everyone likes little bits of attention like that. But if I’m honest with myself, what good does it do to get all uppity about a person you cannot physically speak to or interact with? Somebody might read this and say, “It’s a long distance relationship, we can make it work.” But can youreallydo that if you don’t know the other person in real life? I’ll be completely honest and admit that I tried it once; I didn’t know the guy personally, but I liked the attention–until he started trying to convince me to start sexting with him. Call me a prude, but I did not (and still do not) find sexting to be a 'turn on.’ If anything, it’s a 'turn off’, especially in such an impersonal relationship. Needless to say, he got more annoyed the more I said 'no’, and I ended up breaking it off. Not really a true relationship, so I don’t count it as one.

So here’s the bottom line, as far as my opinion goes: you can have a crush on someone, be it in real life or online, but I don’t think you can really say you truly like the other person until you’ve gotten to know them better through time spent together (and not via phone, facetime, skype, facebook, etc.).

I know I’d rather have somebody ask me to 'hang out’ a few times before they ask me to 'go out’. It’s less awkward once you truly know someone and can feel comfortable being yourself. As my mother always told me–and I find this to be very true–it is better to start off as friends, and build a relationship from there.

I guess that’s my 'food for thought’ for the evening, dear starrlings! I hope you all have enjoyed your week so far; it’s halfway over! :)

Sincerely,

Starr <3
