I love the 90s

I really do, it is probably because it was the decade of my childhood. It was so glorious, I wouldn't trade it for the world. In fact most of my favorite music is from that decade. I am secretly in love with Kurt Cobain, I am not so secretly in love with 3EB, and I still have all of my My Little Ponies.

So, let us now discuss the point of this blog. "Run Around" by Blues Traveler, which came out in 1994. I have heard this song probably thousands of times of the radio over the past 16 years. I can't believe it took me until this week to realize just how AWESOME this song is. Let me give you a little except
"Tra la la la la bombardier this is the pilot speaking
And I've got some news for you
It seems my ship still stands no matter what you drop
And there ain't a whole lot that you can do
Oh sure the banner may be torn and the wind's gotten colder
Perhaps I've grown a little cynical
But I know no matter what the waitress brings
I shall drink in and always be full
Yea I will drink in and always be full"

I just want to stand up in the middle of my Intro to Literature course and yell "YES!" I now further love my life because the song has its own Wikipedia article... Double Yes!

This post marks me being okay. The quote that I put up there is how I feel. My ship is still standing, and no matter what it will continue to stand. It is such a good feeling. I know that I will have some grand love, something wonderful. I will. I will.
