I always find myself relating my life to the music I listen to, it is so easy for me to see a part of my life in the lines of a song or even in the mood of the melody. This song is definitely a certain mood I’m in at the moment so I thought it would be nice to save it as a memory because after all a blog is sort of a digital diary of someone’s life and what they felt in that exact moment. ‘Home’ for me has change so many times in my life that it makes me relate to this song even more, specially now as I live once again in another place that I get to call home though this one is different as it was my decision and not my parents or the circumstances around my life in the moment. ‘Home’ is always going to be for me how my heart feels, the level of happiness I feel inside. The location doesn’t really seem to matter but what always seems to matter most is the people we surround ourselves with in each new place.
Songs of the moment:
Gabrielle Aplin – Home
Gabrielle Aplin – Please Don’t Say You Love Me
Tom Odell – Another Love
Matt Corby Brother – Brother
For me is also intriguing to see or read what the artist had to say about the lyrics. Gabrielle explained the lyrics to each of her songs on her English Rain album on a blog post. This is the explanation of Home:
I’ve definitely written about Home before. I had the chorus for about a year before I finished the song. I wrote it when I moved to London two years ago. It’s about realising where home is for you. For me it wasn’t the house I was in but the people I was with.
Enjoy Your Sunday,
Blog is been so sooo long… I have to say it has been a mixture of procrastination, lots of things going on, and of course me judging myself extra hard on whatever I put on the blog which makes it harder to just whip up something quickly and hitting the “Publish” button…
But anywho here is a bit of what has been going on:
I quit my job! – It was planned, I didn’t just go Bananas and quit, I had been saving some money just so I could quit, travel a bit, and just simply enjoy myself for a little bit.
One of my Best Friends, Katinka came to visit me from Germany!!! We spend 2 weeks together! I’m so happy she came, and I am so thankful to have a best friend like Katinka in my life! I can’t wait to see her again soon hopefully!!! And at some point I will write a bit about what we did in our 2 weeks of vaca!
After Katinka left, I decided to finally make my way to my country Dominican Republic!!! God, I am so Thankful for my little time in my country! More on that coming next…
Lastly, my little cousin’s graduation from College!!! Gosh I am so PROUD of her!!!! Caro, is more than a little sister to me, I gladly give my life for her without even thinking it, I got so much love for my little rat and to see her graduate from college is just unbelievable! Beyond happy for her accomplishments!!!
It’s been over 1 month, can’t believe how fast time has pass!

Quotes from Roberto Shinyashiki.
*I like to take little walks during my lunch break and today I made it my mission to cheer me up by capturing some pictures of nature specially as just last week all trees were completely bare, now look at the magic that has bloomed! Great way to recharge the batteries is to take a little walk whenever possible, it does wonders for the mind.
Remember, Is the Little Things!
Time flies!!! Wow it feels like the years, months, weeks, weekends, days, and everything is getting shorter and shorter. Where does the Time go?
