This just made me pee my pants in excitement.

Hip hop and tap! Genius. I knew there was a reason I was taking both this semester. These guys kill it.

Waiting and fading and floating away.

Summer school is here! Dancing nonstop from 10am to 6pm. I haven’t been this excited since I turned 25. Hopefully my old age won’t hinder me from keeping up with all the youngsters. Har har.

Question! Tell me how you feel about this.

I have a confession to make. I, “goodnight, rose” am an addict. Or, as one of my best friends puts it, I’m “secretly chocolate”. I love pop and hip hop music–you know, the “hits”. Catchy, ready-made, pop music. The abhorrent, vapid lyrics. The auto-tuning. I love it all. And I can’t stop listening to it! Taylor Swift, Jason Derulo, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Lady Ga-Ga, TI.  In the car all I seem to listen to is 93.3FM or (my new favorite) Z90.3FM (San Diego’s Number One Hip Hop Station, for your information.) I shake my hips in the car and sing at the top of my lungs. I know, completely out of character, right? Or maybe it’s not…

It’s gotten so bad that when I’m home and don’t feel like listening to my iPod, I log onto Pandora…and guess what kind of “stations” I’ve created? That’s right, “Rhianna” and (I can’t believe I’m about to admit this,) “Destiny’s Child”! Yes. I’m serious. So now I get to listen to Mya, TLC and the like as well; the shit they don’t play on the radio anymore. I then proceed to dance around my house and sing along. (Yes, I admit, I have far too much time I my hands these days.)

I used to pride myself on being a music snob. Searching for obscure, unknown bands, being the “first” to introduce them to my friends, or maybe just hoarding them for myself; and now here I am…listening to Beyonce. Does this make me a bad person? I’m hoping it just makes me multi-faceted. I just can’t help myself, OK?! Sheesh. It could be worse, right? I could be hiding chocolate bars under my bed or shooting up heroine. And I’m not doing either of those things, I’m simply listening to pop music.

And for your viewing and listening pleasure, I leave you with this:

(I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. It’s one of my fading favorites at the moment.)
