Fireworks

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind
Wanting to start again

Do you ever feel feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards
One blow from caving in

Do you ever feel already buried deep
Six feet under scream
But no one seems to hear a thing

Do you know that there's still a chance for you
Cause there's a spark in you

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July


Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh oh oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y


Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh oh oh!"
You're gunna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own


You don't have to feel like a waste of space
You're original cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow


Maybe you're reason why all the doors are closed
So you can open one that leads you to the perfect road


Like a lightning bolt your heart will blow
And when it's time you'll know


You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine


Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July


Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh oh oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y
Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh oh oh!"
You're gunna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own

Boom boom boom
Even brighter than the moon moon moon
It's always been inside of you you you
And now it's time to let it through


Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh oh oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y


Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh oh oh!"
You're gunna leave 'em goin "Oh oh oh!"


Boom boom boom
Even brighter than the moon moon moon
Boom boom boom
Even brighter than the moon moon moon

This song I chose because it's fun and
that's how I like to feel most of the time. Except
on the occasions that call for being serious.
Are you ready for more "get to know Meredith time"?
BUST OUT! (say that in a Michael Jackson "Oo-whoo" tone)
I am afraid of the dark.
I've seen enough scary movies in my life time
that it completely makes sense. Bad things usually happen in
the dark anyways.
I don't like walking by windows in the dark either.
Have you ever seen DARKNESS FALLS?
It's a scary movie about the tooth fairy.
If you see her face, SHE GETS YOU.
BUT only in the dark. SO the people jump from light to light.
I think it's smart.
Being alone doesn't bother me.
I eat lunch by myself almost every day.
Not that I'm not a "people" person.
Because I am SO a people person. One teacher in
junior high told me that I "could talk to a box of rocks!"
Ridiculous, yes? But oh so very true!
My all time favorite actor is Gene Kelly.
He sings, dances, choreographs, acts, and is handsome.
I also love Bing Crosby.
Love, love, love!!!
Some of my favorite movies are The Holiday Inn and
Singing in the Rain.
The movies and musicals that I like (besides all
musicals) are The Count of Monte Cristo,
The Pajama Game, The Music Man,
The Ocean's movies, White Christmas, and
much, much more. I love musicals the most though.
I make sound effects when I do things.
At work, home, and school. I get
weird looks, but sound effects make me happy!
I love dancing. I know how to country dance
and do flips and other tricks. It's so much fun!
I usually think of myself as "big". Like tall,
or bigger than a skinny, tiny, mini girl.
People at work compliment me on how "small" I am and how
fit that I am. I feel awkward though. I've never
seen myself as "hot" but as "cute". I like being cute.
So when people say they see me as "hot", is
completely weird to me. I say thanks, but
feel I make it awkward! haha!
I have, well, not the best hearing. When I was
very young, up until the age of 5 (or so)
I couldn't hear. I had to have tons
and TONS of surgery on my ears. Whenever
I go to the doctors and they look in my ears, they always
comment on how scarred the tissue is on the inside.
I would rather GIVE a gift, then RECEIVE a gift.
I hate thrift store shopping. I don't understand how such cute
girls can find CUTE and amazing clothes.
I never find anything. It drives me insane.
I'm blunt. I get that from my older
sister, Mombabe. She tells it like it is and so do I.
Speaking of Mombabe, she is one of my heroes. As are all of my siblings.
One story, that I'm not sure she remembers, was at girl's camp.
One year, the girls had been picking on me. I couldn't get
them to stop. Nothing worked. I told my sister Mombabe and
she let me stay with the girls in her cabin. She was a YCL.
I got to do pranks with her and see her in the skits.
I slept with her and she just talked to me until
we both fell asleep. She was the greatest
person to me when others were horrid.
Now I take her point of things and I don't let things get to me
as easily as I did. I grew up. And I'm grateful she was there for me that year.
I love sports. And the outdoors.
I like to get down and dirty. But either all of me or none
of me has to be dirty. It can't be just my hands.
I have C. D. O. It's like O.C.D. But the letters
are in alphabetical order like they should be. haha!
I think that statement is fun. It was on a bumper sticker. It's still
kind of true though. I have to have certain things straight.
And if something feels weird, I have to do it again.
Yeah.... That's enough for this post.

Oh, Meredith! I miss your face! I feel like I'm starting to forget how much fun we had together in VA. :/ Good thing I can read your blog every once in awhile, at least.
