SONG OF THE DAY: imaginary girl by the silver seas
this song has always been special for me. it represents that despite (at times) life can be low, there’s a way to escape it. four years ago today…i did. in college, i had the worst first semester of my freshman year. it was probably the worst i’ve felt in my whole life. however, as second semester rolled around i was determined to change it. so (instead of studying) i surfed fb (shocker) and found this roadtrip political science thing to dc. so on such a whim, i contacted the guy in charge and 24 hours later, i was on the turnpike to washington dc. and, 24 hours after that, i met the very people who took me out of the darkness i was stuck in. the last three and a half months of my freshman year truly lifted me up. i don’t know if it was fate (i.e. the fact i stayed on the exact same floor my mom did at american university when she went forty years prior) or karma, but whatever it was, i am thankful for it. and four years later, these friends i made are no longer in my literal life, but they will always be in my memories. so, here’s to you my imaginary girls.
I was stranded in the middle of the night
I was washed out to sea
Out of the water,
you appear like a dream to me
And I wanna thank you…
