Lost in the Melodies - The Great Divide

Hey guys! I know I could apologize again for my random absence but my posts lately have been filled with apologies so I'll make it short and snappy. I am so sorry I left for, like, half a month! I've been busy, trying to enjoy summer since I'm going back to school on Tuesday... darn you, summer, you're too short. those three months flewwww by way too fast. :1

Anyway, today's post is going to be different.

And it will change the world FOREVER, MUWHAHAHAHAHA- *has a coughing fit*

Nah, not really. It will change my blog... kinda? I don't know. XD

I've had this idea for a new post series that deeply interests me so these posts will be super fun to write and just throw out into the internet for everyone to read. And today's the day I start this post series. It has nothing to do with AJ, sadlyyyy, but that does not mean AJJ won't get AJ content. It just means I'll post on here more because I'll have this exciting post series to write about and that means this blog won't die, you'll get more reading content.

And c'mon, think about it. Has this blog ever truly just been about AJ? Maybe back in my first year of writing but eh, not now. XD

Now! For the grand reveal of Project-Super-Secret-Except-Not!


Confused? Let me explain!

I have a huge interest in music. Which is kind of odd, since for most of my life, I was never interested in music. I had no albums, I never listened to music I enjoyed because... well, I had no taste of music. I had no genres I liked more than others and I just listened to whatever my family listened to.

Then last year, something changed. I don't know what, to be honest.

I suddenly found out I love pop music, soundtracks, some rap music, video game music, some music I don't even know what to call! Now, my headphones are something incredibly important to me and I can't go on the computer without my headphones because I need music. It feels dull if I go online and have nothing to listen to. *shrugs*

If you know me, you know that I love blabbering about things I love and it's kinda impossible for me to stop talking about it. (See how this was supposed to be a SHORT intro for the post series? I talk too much. XD) Since music is important to me, I usually find meanings or deep feelings about songs. But throwing them at my friends when we're talking about something that's totally NOT my music is not... the best option? XD

So, in these "Lost in the Melodies" posts (hehe, thanks, Chloe, for helping with the name!), I will talk about one song in each post and say what it means to me and what it makes me think of. Basically, a very opinionated review... kind of. Is that cool with you guys? :D

This song. It's insanely powerful for me. Like, whoa.

Swirl was the one who recommended this song to me, so THANK YOU, SWIRL, FOR GIVING ME THIS AWESOME SONG.

The lines in The Great Divide are important to me. To most people, this song could sound rebellious and hurtful but seriously, I've gone through situations that the song talks about. My thoughts on them are jumbled and angry but this song? It puts it in such a poetic, beautiful way. It's so truthful.

Let's just say, a lot of my friend life has ended up in the way this song talked about.

I had a best friend who I knew since I was young and we grew up together, we hung out at church all the time.

Suddenly, for reasons I won't say, she did something that hurt me so bad that I stepped back from the relationship. Funny how history ends in an instant, how something so close can end up so distant.

Another time, I was really good friends with a different girl, we had such good times together. Talked lots, laughed even more. She was an amazing friend.There was a few rare times, she'd act differently. Stuck up. She'd act all high and mighty, just for a moment. But then everything went back to normal and I forgot about it.

Then, we had some debates and arguments. I was frustrated with her way of doing things, her ego was way too big to me, and she didn't understand that some of my opinions were different than hers. So, our friendship broke. I'm done feeding your ego, forgetting everything that we had.

But that wasn't the end of it. She kept coming back and told lies behind my back about me. She had a whole group of friends that all thought I was an awful person and some even told me what she had said. You go where the wind blows, destroying everyone in your path.

So I ended up going with my other friends and blowing up at her. She tried to lie and push her way out of the awkward situation. Finally, I gave up and have decided to leave her do whatever. Let her lie and bully others, be my guest. Good luck when you wake up, and realize all that you've lost. Shining lies are what you're made of, I hope it's worth the price that it cost.

There are more friend situations that I've been through like this but yeah. That's all I'll spill today. ;)

Anyway, what I mean to say, these lyrics are super special to me since I can relate to it. And this song is SO GOOD. Seriously, I haven't heard the normal version but the Crash Cove Remix is so good! The music is really fun and ahhh, I hope you all listen to it. <3

It kind of awes me that a song that only has a few lyrics can be so amazing. o.o

Anyway, I gotta boogie off, I have to bike over to the library and pick up the next Wings of Fire book before the library closes!

Have an amazing day and...

Jam on!
