Coffee Update #8

Heyyyy guys! Welcome back to another Coffee Update. This is where we grab a cup of coffee, or tea, or hot chocolate, as the climate seems to demand, and I talk to you about what’s up with my life right now. A bit of a vlog in a written form, if you will.

So grab a cuppa and settle down!


If we were having coffee right now, firstly, I would tell you that I can totally NOT get over this song, at all. I’ve played it, like 47 times in the last 5 days. Maybe an exaggeration, but that’s as accurate as it gets. The song’s too goddamn catchy. Ed Sheeran never ceases to surprise me. Go check it out if you haven’t heard it already! Here, I’ll just give it to you:

If we were having coffee right now, I would tell you that I’ve created another place for myself to write! Some of you may have seen a couple of football-related posts on this blog. I realised that this isn’t exactly the place for those kind of posts, but I do have a great interest in football and, as it appears, some people think I write well about football. So I decided to create The United Writer! It is a blog where I write about football and Manchester United Football Club.

It’s hardly been about three/four months since I started the blog, but its already allowed me to get in touch with some great people in the football-related media community and interacting with others in a field of your interest is always a great experience. For example, the owner of one of the biggest football fan accounts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, got in touch with me, since (I assume) he probably liked my work. Now I write with him on his website! The name is Man United Zone, and you can check it out by clicking here: Man United Zone

I’m really happy with where I am, and I look forward to growing more, and in that quest, I can use all the help I get!

If we were having coffee right now, I’d briefly tell you about what’s going on with me academically. I had my exams for the first semester of my Bachelor’s course at college about a month back. We got the results for that, just today. I’m not happy with the amount of effort I put in, preparing for the exams. We haven’t received a cumulative grade yet, but going by the individual subject grades I’ve got, I’m pretty sure I’ll make an A, I’m hoping they bump me up to A+. Yes, regrets. Powerful thing, no?

I haven’t done particularly badly, but I’m going to try and not make the same mistakes again. I tend to do that sometimes, and I really don’t like it when I do.

If we were having coffee right now, I’d talk to you about Sherlock for a little bit. Holy shit, Cumbersandwich you beautiful, beautiful man! What an absolute gem this show has been. It seems pretty clear they’ve prepared for the end, and this was probably it. I think it’s a great end to a great show, and it would seem unnatural to drag it on further. It was a pleasure. I shall miss the two year long waits for new seasons.

If we were having coffee right now, I’d just like to thank you. For being here, reading and listening, with us separated only by something as trivial as a digital screen and maybe a few hundred miles, at the most.

I write because I like to share my thoughts here. Right now, I appreciate anybody who’s reading this, and even those who choose not to.


So, well, that’s what’s up! You are now officially updated with some of the stuff I’m dealing with at the moment! It was great catching a quick coffee with you peoples, I’ll see you soon.

Until the next post,

Adios muchachos!

Awesome Quotes – Music Lyrics Part II

AWESOME QUOTES

Welcome back, to the second part of the Awesome Quotes of Music and Lyrics.

Last week, I mentioned how I had a ton of quotes to put up here, and I decided to split this up into two parts for that reason, so it remained relatively short and light on the eye, so to say.

Getting right to it, here’s the last batch of the amazing music lyrics I managed to round up. I’ve also attached Soundcloud plugins for each song (I could find) under the respective quote, so you can listen to the song in full.

Enjoy!


 

This is 10% luck, 20% skill

15% concentrated power of will

5% pleasure, 50% pain

And a 100% reason to remember the name

– Fort Minor, Remember the Name

 

When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year

But,

I’ll be there for you

When the rain starts to pour

I’ll be there like I’ve been there before

I’ll be there for you

‘Cause you’re there for me too…

– The Rembrandts, I’ll Be There For You

 

And I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways

Maybe just the touch of a hand

Oh me I fall in love with you every single day

And I just wanna tell you I am

– Ed Sheeran, Thinking Out Loud

Oh, seasons come and go

But I will never change

And I’m on my way

– Tinie Tempah ft. Eric Turner, Written in the Stars

 

Where’s the good in goodbye?

Where’s the nice in nice try?

Where’s the us in trust gone?

Where’s the soul in soldier on?

– The Script, No Good in Goodbye

 

I see your dirty face

Hide behind your collar

What is done in vain

Truth is hard to swallow

So you pray to God

To justify the way you live a lie, live a lie, live a lie

– Kevin Rudolf & Lil Wayne, Let it Rock

 

Don’t let the ones that want to steal your dreams away

They’ll steal your dreams away

Just laugh and let it go

– Old Man Canyon, Phantoms and Friends

 

Trust I seek and I find in you

Every day for us something new

Open mind for a different view

And nothing else matters

– Metallica, Nothing Else Matters

 

In this farewell

There’s no blood

There’s no alibi

‘Cause I’ve drawn regret

From the truth

Of a thousand lies

So let mercy come

And wash away

What I’ve done

I’ll face myself

To cross out what I’ve become

Erase myself

And let go of what I’ve done

– Linkin Park, What I’ve Done


 

Well, that’s it folks, that was all the music lyrics I have right now.

Do you agree with me? Does any lyric remind you of any other related song, or lyric? Let me know!

I’ll see you next time, folks.

Awesome Quotes – Music Lyrics Part I

AWESOME QUOTES

Long back I wrote a post about some really great quotes about music, and a few lyrics from songs I found to be really moving, in one way or another.

Today, I’m giving you a follow-up, of sorts, of that post and I’m going to focus solely on lyrics from songs I’ve heard. Rohan Marathe, a friend of mine, read my previous Awesome Quotes post and thought I should do another music-based one, so I thought why not? Because after all, its the words that invariably stick with you for a long time.

This is a two-part post, because I had way too many lyrics to fit into this segment, and I thought putting them all into one would make it too long, and so, to keep it lighter on the eye (and mind) I’ve split it up into two. This post is the first part, the sequel to which will I will publish next Friday, so keep an eye out for that.

So, let’s jump right into it! Here’s my selection of awesome quotes from songs, in no particular order. I’ve also attached Soundcloud plugins for each song (I could find) before the respective quote, so you can listen to the song in full.

Enjoy!


 

We keep this love in a photograph

We made these memories for ourselves

Where our eyes are never closing

Hearts are never broken

And time’s forever frozen still

– Ed Sheeran, Photograph

 

Your lies are bullets

Your mouth’s the gun

And no war in anger was ever won

Put out the fire before igniting

Next time you’re fighting

Kill ’em with kindness

– Selena Gomez, Kill ‘Em With Kindness

 

Do it for your people

Do it for your pride

Never gonna know if you never even try

Do it for your country

Do it for your name

Cause there’s gonna be a day

When you’re standing in the hall of fame

– The Script ft. Will.I.Am, Hall of Fame

 

You’re my end and my beginning

Even when I lose, I’m winning

– John Legend, All of Me

 

Hope when the moment comes, you’ll say

I… I did it all

I owned every second that this world could give

I saw so many places

The things that I did

Yeah, with every broken bone

I swear I lived

– OneRepublic, I Lived

 

My father said,

Don’t you worry, don’t you worry child

See, heaven’s got a plan for you

Don’t you worry, don’t you worry now

– Sam Tsui, Don’t You Worry Child

 

When the lights come on, the beat still remains

The strength inside, glory to gain

The shades of light, merge into one

As the broken skies clear from the sun

We’re the same, you and I

Reaching out to justify

Give me a chance, give me the time

Get in the game

– Cody Martins and Sparky Buddha, Get in the Game

 

I’ve witnessed your suffering

As the battles raged higher

And though they hurt me so bad

In the fear and alarm

You did not desert me

My brothers in arms

– Dire Straits, Brothers in Arms

 

Working hard to get my fill

Everybody wants a thrill

Payin’ anything to roll the dice just one more time

Some will win, some will lose

Some were born to sing the blues

Oh, the movie never ends

It goes on and on and on and on

– Journey, Don’t Stop Believing


 

That’s it for the first part of the Awesome Music Lyrics, folks! I hope you enjoyed it, and I’ll see you with more like these next Friday.

Until next time.
