Help Me Out

How is everyone today?! It's an absolutely BEAUTIFUL fall day here in Virginia. The windows are open at my house and I'm inspired to be outside and enjoy the day but before I do that, I need your help! I'm going to do something simple on the blog today. Lauren's post made me realize I need some new music so all I want you to do is comment with where you're from, what you're going to be doing today/what you've already done today, and what your favorite song is at this moment! Get creative, y'all. I have been listening to Florence + the Machine for far too long and I'm ready for something new. :) Please feel free to share this post! I want as many people participating as possible! Okay, go! :)

  1. It really is a beautiful day in Virginia! :) After I finish the Italian assignment that I'm supposed to be working on right now, I'm going to go sit outside with my iced tea and do some math homework. My favorite song at the moment is probably January Wedding by the Avett Brothers. maybe you'll like it, too! :)

  2. Alrighty: I'm from (and still in) North Carolina and I plan on experimenting with self portraiture today. Music wise? I would highly recommend Regina Spektor. Some favorite songs of mine by her are "Better", "Folding Chair", "Samson", "Two Birds on Wire". Also, Priscilla Ahn is really good. :)

    Well, I finished a long post about cameras on my blog (http://rachyracheshobbycorner.blogspot.com/2012/09/photography-cameras.html)
    I fixed some things on my blog.
    I did a photoshoot
    I am going to watch the Packer game.
    and maybe design a blog or two
    probably clean my desk

    What your favorite song is at this moment
    ugh, seriously!
    How about artists?
    Carrie Underwood
    Taylor Swift
    Royal Tailor
    Britt Nicole
    (oh, and I also really like Naturally and Love You Like a Love Song, by Selena Gomez)
    You should really get Pandora or IHeartRadio.

    ...as of right now... lol, I am horrid at choosing one song/artist.

  5. I'm from Illinois, and today I'm going to finish up homework and watch Dr. Who and Wallender and also write some more. As for music, I absolutely LOVE Tom Milsom, Danielle Fricke, Ardie Collins, Snow Mantled Love, and Orla Gartland.

  6. I'm from Ontario but currently living in Newfoundland! Today I have gone for an early morning run, volunteered, read, finished Science homework, relaxed and drank tea. It's been a lovely Sunday.

    I have a couple of favorite songs at the moment: All The Rowboats by Regina Spektor, King Of The World by First Aid Kit and Lakehouse by Of Monsters & Men.

    (I totally approve of Florence And The Machine too, though. Lovelovelove.)

  7. Well I'm from Texas, and today we attempted to go the bakery and the antique shop but both were closed. The weather is finally starting to get decent (fall never TRULY comes in Texas, neither does winter... but we can always hope, yes?). Right now I'm listening to The Honey Bees, The Smiths, and Vampire Weekend. :) So yeah. <3 I hope you continue to have a great day!

  14. It's overcast and windy today here in WA, so it's been a lazy, take it easy type of day. My dad and I have been working on random computer stuff.

    Let's see, my favorite song right now is probably Feeling Good by Bobby Darin (although the Michael Buble version is pretty good too!).

  15. Hey! You know where I am from, and you know quite a bit about me, although you probably didn't know that I was at home this weekend. You probably could have guessed that I went to the library and quite literally straightened every shelf I could get to. *cough* anyhow...

    "Hall of Fame" The Script
    "Is Your Love Big Enough" Lianne La Havas
    "Apres Moi" Regina Spektor

  16. First off, Flo + The Machine isn't a bad choice, but if you're tired of it, then I have some suggestions. :)
    I just listened to a couple songs by The Piano Guys which was fabulous to say the least. I love "Over the Rainbow/Simple Gifts" especially. Then other songs would be
    "The Cave" by Mumford & Sons
    "King and Lionheart" by Of Monsters and Men,
    "Little Talks" by Of Monsters and Men
    Pretty much anything by Owl City (but especially "Vanilla Twilight", "If My Heart was a House" and "Meteor Shower")
    "Something in the Water" by Brooke Fraser
    "Be Still" by The Fray
    "White as Snow" by U2
    Almost everything by NeedtoBreathe
    and...yeah. I could go on and on, but I'm sure that would be too boring for you. :)

  20. It's already Monday but I'm still going to take a moment and answer your questions. :)

    I'm from Papua New Guinea (I grew up there as a missionary kid) and now I'm studying Early Childhood Education at Cedarville University.

    On Sunday I went to church with a couple of my friends (one of them was visiting from Columbus) and we stayed after the service for a new comers luncheon. We spent the rest of the afternoon walking around campus and playing card games. I introduced my friend to my lovely school cafeteria Chucks (did ya catch the sarcasm? lol)and then we said goodbye before she left to drive home. Afterwards I rushed to a meeting for my org, Mu Kappa and then I spent most of the rest of the night posting pictures on Facebook and trying to get homework done, which didn't really happen. Now I'm trying to finish up my homework before it gets really, really, really late.

    My favorite song at the moment might be "Forgiven and Loved" by Jimmy Needham, but it's really hard to choose a favorite. I have been listening to "Free" by Mandisa (all of her songs are great!), tons of Hillsong songs, ("All Day", "Yahweh", "Salvation is Here", etc.), some of Sam Tsui's remixes of popular songs (find him on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/user/TheSamTsui), "Healer", "I Will Follow" and "How He Loves" by Anthony Evans, and anything and everything by Beckah Shae. :)

  22. I know I'm about a day late, but I just had to join in!
    I'm from Texas trying to survive the summer heat. Today I brought a hammock to campus, and read a book under my favorite tree (first time kinda thing!). And currently, I've been obsessing over I Will Wait by Mumford & Sons. So, so good.
